Joe took me shopping!!!!!!

Well it is December 14 and i have more than 90% of my shopping done, I know, I know, it is hard to believe isn't it? Joe doesn't believe in shopping until the week OF Christmas.... (I'm exagerating only a little) but this year on my b-day he took me to Logan and we shopped all day. It was the best b-day gift I could have gotten. And he didn't even gripe very much, I think he even enjoyed swiping that little piece of plastic....

Brandi was a little upset because she is usually santas "helper" so she has no idea what to expect it is awesome. It's usually Joe who has now idea what to expect! Anyway, it is a relief to know that something will be under the tree that wasn't just the "last thing on the shelf" Yipeeee!

I did get some sad news this week, my cousin who was only 47, passed away of a heart attack out at nucor. He was such a good guy! His mother passed away at only 54, so I'm positive they are having a great reunion. Still it is hard too loose the ones you love especially around the Holidays.

Joe and Stetson got the opportunity to go on a camp out with the scouts tonight brrrrrrrrr I hope they can get some sleep, but as long as they have a good time and do that bonding thing all will be well!!!

Well, after alot of thinking and praying and pondering I decided that right now I need some me time, I know that may seem pretty selfish, cause it is. But, if I can find a little more peace on the inside, my kids will benefit on the outside. I quit my job with the School and I will miss the kids tremendously, but My kids need my heart more. So yeah i will probably spend the next couple of days, i mean weeks, laying around in my jammies thinkin about the days when i had 4 kids under the age of 7 and praying for the day they would all be in school. Lo and behold......its here. I cant believe it. Time has gone by soo fast!!!
Then when, i mean if, i get bored of laying around in my jammies (is that possible?) I think I might go take a class or two over to the USU campass in brigham. I would really like to learn about physcology.
Changes scare me but i realize we dont progress without it. baby steps (like in What About Bob?) hahaha.

Stetson got his spacers in and the bands on his teeth today so that next week he can get the brackets on....needless to say he went to bed with a sore mouth. He asked me befor he went to bed "Is it going to hurt like this all the time?" I just chudkled and sang "you've only just begun." he looked at me wierd and went to bed.

Ruger and Levi are changing their Christmas lists at least 2 times a day.. They are so exited!! I even might enjoy it this year....

Joe is driving me crazy with this camera thing he is kinda obsessed with. It will be fun to have and im glad he agrees with me that it would be great for the kids and thier activities. But enough compareing already just get one!!!!

And brandi, I never know sometimes whether i should speak to her directly or go the safe route and use the technology we have been blessed with and just text her. I usually pick the latter.

Change for me is a little tuff, but i enjoy watching my kids change and grow each day...They are my reasons for breathing....

Party and Puppies

These are my puppies, for those of you who don't know I raise mini schnauzers, they are sooo much fun! Sometimes it hard when we sell them but the money helps me get over that pretty quickly. Especially when someone buys them that I know is going to spoil them. This is my 5th litter so the kids know now that they are going to be sold. We had alot of tears selling the first litter.
These will be ready just in time for Christmas and thats fun to send them off with big red bows around their necks.

Steston turned 12 and all he wanted was a PSP and the football game that goes with it, of course im not that rich so joe and i paid for half and he paid for the other..... Thank goodness for the summer job on the farm to let him earn some money for things like that. I'll have to admit it is a pretty cool gadget. It holds music, movies, videos, it connects to the internet, and i can text him on it to tell him to get the heck off it cause thats all he does.

Wow, Thanksgiving already!?, where does time go? Last night we spent the day at Joe's sister, Julies's house, her son, Matt just got home from his mission. What a great day!! I made it all the way through the meeting. He looks so good, he radiates with the love he has for our Heavenly Father and Christ.
On the way home Steston commented on how cool he (matt) was and how he seemed really happy. (Good teaching opportunity) So I told him that we feel much happier and content when we are doing what the lord wants us to. Turns out I was the one who needed to hear that the most!!
I am excited for this week. I really have a ton of things to be greatful for:

1. Uncinditional Love

2. A wonderful husband

3. 4 kids, to live, laugh, love, and learn with.

5. Great friends, who know more than they probably want to about me.

6. My inner child who helps me keep things in perspective everyday.....

I truly hope all of you have a great Thanksgiving.
