Sorry for the lack of posts lately...i find myself super "churchy" these days and loving it. Let me just say how overwhelming-ly loving members of the church are when asked to serve. Mormons are powerful. Its like superman and all his side kicks in one releif society room at once! For example, a friend of mine in the ward decided to throw together a service project for "nienie" last minute. That didn't stop anyone from donating! We had bins and bins full of items for her family and people dropping off boxes on our doorsteps. I currently have a car full of goods and it gets me all emotional everytime i jump in the car. My ward is awesome, amazing, thoughtful and loving! I have made the best of friends in my ward. No kiddin. I love them and i love them even more for loving my rambunctious kids. (which by the way have been melting my heart lately). You all know who you are and i love you! I always dreamed of the kind of neighborhood i could sit on my porch and have conversations with the next door neighbor. Or, look out my window and see a street full of kids riding bikes, playing catch and jumping on trampolines. Im so blessed to be apart of that kind of neighborhood i dreamed about having my kids grow up in. I adore it. I adore all the old charming houses, the trees that shade the street sometimes and of course the people most.
Anywho, becuase i have been so churchy lately, my cute cousin Tiff sent me a link to print off general conference packets for kids. SO cute and SO smart. Maybe i will able to watch conference this time! I will try and figure out how to put it on here, but in the meantime, you can email me if you are interested.
Happy conference watching this weekend.

Don't be jealous...

Or i guess you can be jealous...because i was able to attend the "So you think you can dance" concert last night with my sister in law Nikki. We were the biggest fans there... Don't worry, we're not 13. It was awesome. Best concert ever! I was smitten by all the dancers. Too bad i can't bust moves like them. I would probably pull a muscle!
Thanks Nik for the memories. Its definately journal worthy!

So im always told, "change is good." Well, i have a hard time with change. I am happy with my little life. I don't want anyone to grow up or grow older. I don't want to change friends and I don't want my daily routine to change.
Owen started preschool last week. He is getting so big and growing up so fast but learning so much everyday.
Reggie is starting to let go of objects he stands up to. I don't want him to walk. My little baby is getting so big, yet is a major mama's boy and i love that about him.
I got released from being a primary teacher. I was so sad. I miss my little 4 year olds!
Then i got a new calling as young womens 2nd counselor. Today was my first day in Ym's and today...i am ok with change. i love those girls already.
So sometimes..change is good.

Cali-part 2

I know it can be very 'clique' to share disneyland photos over the blog, but hey, its what we did and what we love folks. Chip was a trooper even though Owen wasn't so much. A minor set back happened this day- Owen got a little heat stroke and threw up all over the sidewalk seconds before the parade started. His face is classic here.
me- "look owen, its chip, lets take a picture...smile pal!"
Owen- "i don't want to. my tummy hurts."
The crew awaiting the California adventure parade. Ps- please check out the disneyland soundtrack, its the best.

Owen felt better and hit pretty much every ride...probable twice. there were NO lines. and we had "trip activities director" Aaron to guide us every step of the way. No minutes wasted.

Tyson and I even got to celebrate our 4th Anniversary in disneyland. Truly magical people! Truly magical!

Cali-part 1

Va-ca-tion; a period of suspence of work, study, or other activity. Usually used for rest, recreation or travel- a freedom of release from duty.

Traveling with 2 tired kids, 17 suitcases, 2 strollers, 2 carseats, 8 shuttle bus rides, 2 airplane rides, 8 days of no naps= priceless.
Our first few days were spent at the beach- dana point and crystal cove
my kids were made to live by the ocean, as was I.

our trip to the newport templeand visiting the fishes in our hotels pond.
stay tuned for more...
