Where has the time gone?

I know that I have been a MAJOR slacker!! Life is just busy, life just gets down, life just doesn't take the turns that you want. But today, I decided I want to make a change! Hooray! And the change starts with myself! I pray that I can make it through this journey.
Shane has finally graduated! I am so proud of him and I love him so very much! He is my rock. I wouldn't be able to survive so many things if it weren't for him!
Brody is my non-stop talker! I can never get him to stop! He is very very smart though! It amazes me how much he is capable of.
Chase is my little sunshine. His smile makes me smile! He is my mess maker though, but he is adorable the way through the destruction!
I love my family so much! This isn't even a recent picture-this was taken in April I think! Ha ha! Well at least it shows how cute we are!

The Fam

This day was alot of fun! We got to go to the Oquirrh Mountain Temple Open House. Brody loved it! His favorite was all the pictures of Christ and the "brand new couches". We have been teaching Brody that the Temple is Jesus's house, so he actually believed that he was going to see him there, and he was nervous about it. He kept saying "Mom, is this where Jesus lives? Are we going to see him?" It was sooooo sweet! Great day with the fam!

Some Pics From The Cruise

So the cruise was super super amazing! I wish that I was back! All that food, and all that time with no kids! (That's what I am talking about!) The Bahamas was beautiful! I loved the beach! I'm normally not a swim suit gal-but I loved every minute of this vacation! The entertainment was great, the waiters were wonderful and we met some people that I know that we will never forget (including all the 15 year old girls for their dance competition :( we would like to forget about them). We got to play with a dolphin named Andy and we got to parasail! Both were great great great! And I loved my tan (even though I don't have it anymore). Thanks hon for the best 5 year celebration for us!

Majesty of the Seas

Blue Lagoon Island. This is were we got to play with the dolphin.

Here we are!

Fabric Wallet

I have always wanted to make a fabric wallet. I thought that it would be hard, but it was actually a lot easier than I was expecting! I had so much making this (and a lot of learning experiences too!) I'm so sad that I gave it away!

Party-Harry Potter Style

So it was Kara's great idea to have a party! I don't know how we came up with Harry Potter-but it was perfect, especially to help us get ready for the 6th movie coming out next month! So we dressed up as Harry Potter characters, played Harry Potter Clue and then watched the 5th movie outside under our patio! (It was raining and wet!) So much fun! I didn't know that I liked dressing up so much!

Matt as "Mad-Eye Moody" & Kara as "Prof. Trelawny"

Brandon as "Prof. Quirl" and Tah as "Luna Lovegood"

Keith as Hedwig!!!

Shane as "Harry Potter" and Jessica as "Fleur"

I forgot to post the pictures of our Muggles (Ben and Lindsay) and the House Elves (Brody and Chase)

The other day when I came home from work, both the boys were on my bed asleep. This is what it looked like---I personally don't think that the boys look alike, but when I saw this I couldn't believe how identical they actually look. They are so sweet when they are asleep too! That's when I like them the best! ha ha!

Recent Projects

I've been keeping myself busy with some fun crafts (we all know that I am obsessed!)

Thanks to Tashi for teaching me how to make Sock Monkeys! It was so fun and pretty simple! I'm not as good at making them as her-but with practice I'm sure I'll get there!

This is my second Annie doll that I gave my friend Peggy and her brand new baby!

My first Annie doll. I did not want to give her away! I worked so hard on her.

He Did It!

So Shane took my many hints and booked us a cruise to the Bahamas! Yes! Yes! Yes! For our 5 year anniversary (it feels like we have been married longer, or at least we fight like we have! ha ha!) But I am so excited!! I have never been on a cruise! I need all the advice that I can get!

Chase Is One

Chase is already one! It makes me so sad! He's my baby! We had a western theme party and I hope for everyone else that it was fun! It was fun for me (a little stressful too)! Thank you to all the family and friends who came to support and show their love for our little boy!

Kara Kara

So I could go on and on about this girlie!! This is Shane's sister whom I look up to more than anyone I know!! Not only am I so grateful that she is my sister-in-law, I am more grateful that she is my friend! We have been running together for about a year and that is my favorite thing everyday! We talk about EVERYTHING! Kara is such an inspiring person. I always feel better about myself and want to be better when I am around her. She is also so great with the boys!! They both really love her. Kara is the kindof person that you always say good things about. I am so gonna miss her when she moves to Salt Lake. I know that it will be a good thing for her-but it's going to be a sad day for me everyday! I wish you the best Kara!! You deserve so much happiness!! Thanks for all that you do for me, Shane and the boys!
