So much Fun!!

We have been soo busy this week. The Scott and the kids had the week off. So when there is a week, why not fill it up. Monday I did hair all day to pay for the week. Tuesday I went and picked up the Kelsie and Logan from Kalli's. Thanks Kalli for letting them spend the night. I also got to tour Kalli's new house. Very nice! Then I came home and cleaned for visitors, and Scott's brother came down from Sacramento and spent the night with Kenny. Nice visit! Wednesday we had Thanksgiving with Scott's family. All the family was there. We all had a great time. Thursday we had Thanksgiving at my mom's with all of her family totaling sixty-five people. We never had a dull moment, and had so much delicious food. (My moms restaurant will be opening in January "The Avocado House" We are so excited.) Then Scott took all the kids home with him and I spent the night and Chino. My mom, Aunt Mari, and I got up at four in the morning we went to Walmart, Toys r Us and JcPennys got great deals. We then had breakfast and met up with Kalli for Kohl's and then a movie with a few of my moms siblings and then a visit with grandma at Aunt Stacy's, Thanks Stacy! Then back home to my house hold.( Did I mention my aunt Uncle and five kids were at home with Scott what a good sport. Thanks Hun!) On saturday my aunt and Uncle took there family and my two oldest with them to San Diego. I just relaxed and cleaned. Nice! Now Sunday we went to church and celebrated Kelsie's Birthday. Happy Birthday Sis! Now whew back to the real world. School starts back tomorrow I am ready for a break!

Wow! The End of the year is coming!

I can't believe it before we know it, we will be in the New Year. I feel like it should still be Halloween. And I know Thanksgiving is going to get here to fast. Then before you know it we will blink and Christmas will be gone then we will be ringing in the New Year! I think it is the stores fault they just make these Holidays come and go. We never just get to slow down and just enjoy it. Right after Christmas they will be shoving Valentines day down our throats. Oh what a world, What a world. Well I love you all. and Happy Everything!

A weekend of fun!!

Oh this weekend was a blast it started out on Friday morning spending four hours in Urgent care, dealing with a real jerk of a doctor and finally getting him to give me a shot and send me home with some drugs. So that I can finally swallow a little by Saturday so I can take Logan and the younger two to there Monte fest at there elementary school. Scott took them to the birthday party from 2-4. I went to bed. And then Scott took them to church today and now the white pockets are finally desolving in the back of my throat. And I hope things will be back to normal by tomorrow. Good old Strep throat got to love it. What a GREAT weekend!! :)

Family Night!

We had alot of fun last night. The kids were so excited, we got to decorate for Halloween. So now we are ready for it. I think this has been the first year the majority of the kids are truley excited and actually care what they are going to be. Kelsie wants to be Hannah Montana, Logan a cowboy, Bailee everything under the sun ( but she is the most excited about it, she just can't make up her mind) and Carson a fireman. Whew! So with that said. HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Weekend without Kids!!!

Well we got back late last night from our eventful weekend, Thanks to my wonderful DAD! My dad flew all of his children and there spouses out to Washington state for my brother Dallen and sister-in-law Christina's sealing. It was very enjoyable. We spent the whole day on Friday at the Seattle temple. We were able to take my grandparents through and also go through it all for Dallen and Christina. It was a lovely day and great to be in the temple with my parents, all there children, there spouses and Diane Nielson. She makes everything even more enjoyable. After the temple we all went to Red Robin. Saturday we went to Pike's place ( kind of like a huge farmers market in downtown L.A.) The space needle ( enjoyable but very high and windy up there)(A little sea sick feeling) Then to a big crab dinner at The Crab Pit. Thanks mom for the chicken and rice, it was delicious. I will post pictures later. Sunday we slept in got ready then went to Christina's families for the second session of conference and a delicious mexican spread, then it was off to the airport. Thanks mom and dad for the great weekend.

Nothing New!

I was just updating my blog. Nothing really exciting this past week. I never got dry sockets from getting my wisdom tooth taken out, so that is good news. I did some hair the past couple days, and I finally got my hair done. I colored it bright red and cut it off again. I love it. I have really been enjoying my new calling in YW I love teaching the Laurels. I know it is mainly for me so I can become a better teacher. But I love the girls. Well thats all. Oh and I really colored my hair brown. I just wanted to see if you were really reading this.

Wisdom Teeth who needs them?

So yesterday I got my one wisdom tooth pulled. I wonder why we even have those things. Luckily I only have one. But it was compacted.  Thankfully all went well with the surgery,  and thank goodness for the drugs to be knocked out. I couldn't imagine having to be awake for that.  I have taken a few Vicatin on and off and now I am solely on advil. It is killing me to take it easy and not clean my house. But yesterday I didn't do much at all and my mouth started to bleed so I don't want that again. I am dying with these stitches  in my mouth. I feel as if there is a ton of them.  I hate to feel anything foreign in my mouth. And the diet yuck. Yogurt, pudding, cream soup, or jello. Oh well thats life. Maybe I'll lose a few lbs.  I am praying for no dry sockets, whatever that is, I hear it's pretty painful.

Tom's Farms w/ the Weirs

Saturday morning we got up and got ready and we drove out to Tom's Farms. It was nice and relaxing. The kids had so much fun, we got to watch a magic show, go on a train, tractor race, and ride the merry go round. Whew! And to top it all off we had lunch in a nice relaxing picnic area. Oh and the kids got there face painted. We couldn't have asked for more.

John's 30th & Reese's Blessing

Yesterday we got to go down to Chino and celebrate with our family from Arizona. It was John's 30th Birthday party and Reese's blessing. It was so fun to see everyone we had a great time and great food. The kids loved the bounce house and it kept them occupied the whole time.

Happy Birthday to Me!

So I am another year older today. Where have the years gone. I don't feel like I am 31 but I guess I am. I am having so much fun being a wife and a mom of four great children who keep me laughing. So I guess cheers to being one year older. Man what it would be like going back to the kid birthday days.

Where Did the Summer Go?

Today is the last day of summer. Tomorrow we are back into the routine. Before you know it, it will be Christmas and then the New Year. Once school starts it seems the rest of the year flys by. It is crazy to think that Kelsie is starting the fourth grade and Logan second. It seems like we were all at home just yesterday anticipating Kelsie starting Kindergarten. Where does the time go? It really is just a glimpse of time between birth and graduation. Oh Well guess we need to make the best of these years. So that they can look back and miss them. Later!

Breaking Concrete!

Logan and Papa had a good time together Yesterday. Logan helped Papa break up some concrete that has to be redone while Uncle Den hung with Carson. We always learn how to do something new at Papa's.

Look What Krista Got done!

So I had a pretty busy girls week. I was able to finish up alot of projects. I finished Scotts t-shirt quilt from his high school t-shirts. Then I had scraps of fabric so I made two baby blankets four birp cloths and one baby quilt. Then Mindy and I did tons of scrapbooking. What a successful week. Now I don't have to do anymore projects for at least a year I figure. We did have fun week hanging out thanks Marlene, Mindy and Meredith. When I got home my great husband had two vases of flowers, A clean house, and my kids had we missed you cards and candy all for me. There so sweet I missed them all a bunch to. I love my little family.

Family Home Evening

So last Monday night for the lesson Kelsie read us a story titled "Just Like My Mommy" from the June The Friend magazine. It was  about the little girls mom and her wedding dress and getting sealed for time and all eternity. So after we read the story the kids asked if I had my wedding dress from being married in the temple. I said yes and got it out to show them and immediately the girls asked to try it on. It was fun and they felt pretty cool so I am sharing it with you.
