Taming Milk

Well... I have a new favorite product! I went out the other day and bought three different curl cremes... because basicaly I am sick to death or having to either straighten or curl my hair every day to have it look decent. I found this stuff... AMAZING! I just put it in after my shower and i dont have to do anything else... seriously... my hair dries wavy without being a frizzy afro, or looking like it has crunchy gel in it, or like it has oily lotion in it. Let me repeat... AMAZING! So if you have wavy crazy hair and are looking for a way to tame it... here you go... I have done the research. WOO HOO!

Happy Birthday Emily!!!

Well Em Dah! You are 20! I cant believe it! If i had a good memory like you do then i might remember the day mom and dad brought you home. But i dont. I Do however remember a lot of other stuff. So today... on my amazing little sisters birthday i will post her a tribute!!

When we were kids, we used to tell Em that she was adopted. She really didnt look like any of us... looking at her now she kind of does, but then she didnt. Of course telling a little kid she is adopted makes her cry... Among other horrible things i probobly did to her... So on this your 20th birthday... I tell you how profoundly sorry i am. Even though it was probobly really funny at the time. MUAH!

You really annoyed me when we were kids, for whatever reason I cant even remember. But now that we are older i really reall really like you. More than that I really really really love you. You have turned into a truely amazing woman. And you are fast becoming one of my best friends as we get older. You are strong and independant. You know what you want and you are not afraid to fight for it. Even if that is scary and puts you in the middle of Provo Utah. I am so proud of you. I am grateful beyond words that God saw fit to give me not one, but two sisters who are two of the most beautiful and amazing women I know. I will be more than happy to spend eternity with all of my family... I just hope you and chelsea marry people who i will be equaly happy to spend eternity attatched to... ;)

I love you more than words! Happy Birthday and I hope it was a great one!!!

So... we have a stupid dog. Can you tell how excited I am about this. The thing is actualy pretty cute now, but of course it will grow up eventualy and be not so cute. But Daddy and K are totaly in love with it so... what can i do. Its a chocolate lab, supposedly a good hunting dog. This means that Daddy will have to train it. We will see... :) Daddy named the dog Camo... as in camoflauge.... hahahaha. At least it is a boy so we wont be having any baby puppies around. Daddy was so excited yesterday about it it was like watching a little boy on christmas. THen K followed suit and i had two little boys dancing around the kitchen excited about their new puppy. James has the camera in his car so i will post pictures later.

sisters in law

Wow... its been a while since i posted. I guess nothing too exciting has been going on. K has just recently discoverd the hole in little boys underwear and what it is used for.. hahahaha! I am making 100 LBS of mashed potatoes for our ward christmas party tomorrow... dont ask how i got roped into that... i really have no idea. I found a cute new shirt at target for 4 dollars! I have been roaming around in capris and snow boots the last few weeks. I havent been in the mood for pants even though it is like 30 degrees around here.

I think that is all for my random thoughts. I am so excited to be home for the holidays. Home as in Cali. I call both places my home. Im extra excited to see my brother. We dont get to see each other often sinc he lives on the east coast, and since next year is our turn at James parents, who knows when we will see each other again.

Its strange how your relationships change when you grow up. When we found out Nate was getting married, it was kind of weird. I mean. My sisters and I were just starting to form our best-friend-sister club. And i wasnt sure that i really wanted another member just yet... but it turned out that Amanda was really cool and now she lives so far away, we dont really get to know each other as well as i would like and that makes me sad... weird huh? So i am really hoping that we will get enough time with her to really become friends while they are there. I write this knowing full well that she will probobly read this and i hope she doesnt take offense to the fact that at first i was weirded out by having my baby brother get married... i really do love you amanda!

On that note... i will depart from you now... sorry no cute pictures today. Maybe next time.

We had a great thanksgiving. My family came and visited us from California, and then we all headed to Cache Valley to have thanksgiving with my moms family. It was great to have my family around. I miss them a lot and it was great to just hang out with them and laugh and enjoy each other.

We raked a huge pile of leaves while we were there and took turns jumping in them. K thought this was a riot... he had a turkey hat that he had on and he would burry himself in the leaves and then peek up just enough to that his eyes and the turkey were showing... it was hillarious...

While we were there, my aunt took some pictures for us. She did a great job, so thanks Wendy!!!

So... i think that this week i am going to dedicate a few blogs... Today is for KL...
Why? Because today i miss her. :) Well I miss her a lot but today i was just thinking more about her.
Ten reasons why KL is Awsome:
10: She flashed me her boobs when we were like 5...
9: Slumber parties with her were always an adventure...
8: She was the only one who could have kicked my dad out of his recliner, and she did... often. Because she slept in that thing more nights than i can remember in high school... hahahaha
7: When we would sing together, it was perfect... i didnt realize how rare that was till i moved away... we didnt have to think about dynamics, it just happened... and it was perfect. Like we knew what each other was going to do and followed each other...
6: Her laugh... i can still hear it...
5: She is honest to a fault... even when it pisses everyone else off...
4: She wanted to do hair like me... thats right... i am her inspiration... "your the inspiration... you bring meaning ot my life... your the inspiration..." Sorry... i was just singing her a song... only about me... hahahaha... love you girl
3: She thinks my kid is hot... which he is by the way...
2: She knows me... really knows me. The me that i was when i was 5, and the me i am now and she has loved me all along, through all our drama in high school and everything. (At least i hope that she loves me still... ;)
1: No matter how long it has been or what a slacker she is in calling me... (yeah... that was a cheep shot) when we get together, it is like no time has past at all...
So i love you KL... and even though i live in freaking  Idaho... i still think about you an d miss you!

K loves corndogs lately. This is also true of his father. Both boys were eating their corndogs recently when K decided that he wasnt interested in the hotdog portion of his corndog anymore. I told him to throw it in the trashcan, and as he was on his way there Dad stopped him. This is how the conversation went:

D: Hey, dont throw that away. Let me have it.
K: (Turns angrily around and plants both feet on the ground while waving his finger at dad) NO DADDY! Its my corndog! Not yours... MINE! (turns to throw away the hotdog)
D: Your throwing it away. Bring it to me.
K: (turns again repeating the previous actions.) NO DADDY! Its my corndog! You cant have it! (throws hotdog on ground and stomps on it)

Now i know that as a responsible parent this was not the time to laugh... but seriously! It was hillarious... so of course Daddy and I disolve into laughter while K yells at us, apparently not caring for the fact that we are not taking him seriously.

Battle wounds!

So here are the battle wounds... they are starting to heal now thank goodness! So it is looking a little better here.

Monday, November 5, 2007

My sister says that the only thing that sucks about myspace is that everyone is making their profiles private... so you cant snoop them...That is HILLARIOUS! Because isnt that what all this is all about... Checking in on people we know without actualy having to talk to them on a regular basis... but i am totaly sucked in. So here we go!

I thought i would post some halloween pics! We had a BLAST! We had some friends over with their little boy, as well as my in-laws with their kids. We went trunk-or-treating as well as trick-or-treating around the neighborhood. K was in heaven. Going door to door and people give you candy! What could be better for a three year old? I dont know.
The only mar on our day was that K had a run in with the bathtub. He got a deep cut by his eye that was kind of scray because of the amount of blood that came out of it. Couldnt believe it! But it is healing, he just has a nasty black eye... :)
