Operation Slim Down

I ate WAY too much over the Thanksgiving holiday. WAY WAY too much. It didn't help that Andrew had me make 4 batches of my spinach artichoke dip. So yummy! Everyone brought food and it was all so great! I really felt like I had gained 30 pounds so Ammon and I joined the gym on Tuesday! For Mothers' Day, my mother-in-law got me a 3 month membership and I loved going. I loved how I felt after going to a pilates or turbokick class. Ammon and I will be able to go together which I think will be so fun! We can play racquetball, go swimming, do a class, lift weights and so much more. I really like this facility and they have babysitting at no extra charge! Now I really have no excuse not to do something about my weight. Wish me luck!

Thanksgiving Part 2

We played guitar hero ALL weekend! I went from medium difficulty to hard difficulty but was having trouble with the fifth button so Ammon had to help me out. We rock!

These boys absolutely ADORE their Poppy. Noah wanted Poppy to hold him or play with him all weekend. Alotta love goin' on!

Thanksgiving Part 1

So, I still haven't figured out how to put more than 4 pictures on a post at one time. I know I've done it in the past but now that I use Picasa to upload pictures, I forgot. Anyway, Thanksgiving this year was so much fun! My whole family was there except for Megan and boy was she missed! In addition to that, 2 uncles, 2 aunts, 3 cousins, one grandma, and one great-aunt were all there too! Noah had a blast and really warmed up to everyone. He loved roaming the house (trying to find Poppy most of the time). He learned how to say "dog" this trip and Aunt Beth taught him how to say, "google"! Haha... that was cute.

Meeting Shammie (again)

Noah's cousin, Alli, read him a bedtime story

Making music with cousin Toby

It's fun on Nana and Poppy's bed!

I Miss You!

Thinking about my family today... I get to see most of them next week and I'm about to burst! I miss my nieces and all the funny little things they say. I miss practicing guitar hero with Josh. I miss being there when my dad decided to burst out in song. Or dance. (yeah, he does that) I miss talking with my mom and making something yummy in the kitchen. I miss snuggling up to Shammie and having her lay her head on my leg. I miss watching sports on tv with the boys. I miss reminiscing with Michelle and laughing so hard that it hurts. I miss playing the piano. I miss my Toby and feel like I won't even recognize him when I see him. I miss Laurie. She's so pretty. I miss talking to her and shopping with her. I miss the feeling of having so many awesome people in the same place! Sheesh, it's a good thing I get to see them soon because I miss them a lot.

Meg- I wish you could be there too. I miss you tons and hope you'll spend time with me when Christmas rolls around. Ü

Toy Story

Ah Snap!

Ammon had a meeting with the bishop at 8:45 this morning and church starts at 9:30. Noah woke up around 7:30 and we were ready and left the house around 9:20. I pass a bank on the way to church and it said 8:23 and I remember thinking that they should really change their time because they were going to confuse people. Then I pull into the church parking lot and no one is there! I remember looking at the clock and it said 9:26 and I thought to myself that everyone needs to hurry up because church was starting in 4 minutes! I pull around back and I saw Ammon's car and the bishop's car and maybe 2 others. I thought it was strange but went in anyway. When I walked in the building, it hit me... daylight savings!! What an idiot! So 4 hours of church for our family today... My favorite day of the year and I totally spaced it. Ammon said it was mentioned at work this past week but he forgot. Hey Mom, you usually remind me to set my clocks back or forward... what happened? Ü just kidding.

p.s. it's not my favorite day of the year but, i REALLY enjoy that extra hour of sleep.

I Want These!

Christmas is coming! We don't have stockings and if I buy any this year, I'll buy these from the company store. So cute!
