So , I am sitting here blogging when I should be cleaning. Like I said, I hate to clean. For the last week Halle has had a differernt theme for kindergarten each day! Today was Pirate Day. We borrowed some stuff from a friend and I made a fake eye patch. I thought she looked so cute. She has had cookie day, bubble day, watermelon day, teddybear day and tommorow I am going to help with beach day! It has been really fun. Except on teddy bear day I sent her with a bear and then after she left I found her paper and it said she was supposed to bring a snack and some books! I felt so bad! When I picked her up I said, "were you supposed to have a snack?" She said, "yeah but the teacher had wheat thins" Thank goodness! She said the teacher let her use her books too. That is just me lately, a day late and a dollar short! Oh well!

Race Weekend

Yesterday we ran in a 5k race. I ran with my friends and James pushed Maverik in the stoller. It was very fun. The race was Running with Angels and was a benefit run for a couple of different causes. The weather was warm but nice. I had my fastest 5k (out of 3 :). My time was 26:56. I was very excited. One of my friends, Jen was 25:12 and my other friend was like 50:00. James was around 50 min too. Maverik slept the whole time in the baby jogger. If anyone has done a race, you know how fun it is and the adrenaline you have. In Feb. we (my sisters and I) ran London's Run. It was Awesome!! I hope we can all do it next year!!

So, I laughed so hard reading Courtney & Lee's quirks. I thought it was great. I was thinking of some of my quirks and here is what I came up with

1. I love to sing with my ipod(so I can't hear myself) I think I am great and could make it on American Idol. James said I sound like a dog that is dying. So I guess American Idol will have to wait.

2. I love reality shows. I like really weird ones like who is going to be the next Pussycat Doll and the one with Nick and Aaron Carter. But my favorite is Biggest Loser and I think it is so motivating.

3. I am REALLY afraid of frogs. I know it is weird but they freak me out. I don't mind spiders or snakes, not that I love them but I have an actual fear of frogs. Frogaphobia??

4. I like guys with facial hair. I don't know why but I just think it's cool.

5. I hate it when people tell me to SHh! I know it is dumb, but I would rather someone say shut up or be quiet but I don't like when someone says shh!!

6. I love to dance, but unfortunatley Brook got all the dance moves. I just try to copy and not look so dumb but I still love to dance!

7. I hate the snow and if I see a weather report that says it is going to snow, I am depressed the rest of the day. I love summer time and seeing the sun makes me happy.

8. Like Brook, I love sports too, ecspecially baseball.(I think we can thank Judy for that). I don't mind watching Sports Center and lately I have been watching the NBA playoffs. Go Jazz!!

9. I think my kids are the bomb-diggity. I am sure everyone does but sometimes I just look at them and think, they are so cute! I am blessed with a wonderful family.

10. I hate to clean. I refuse to clean at night. I am sure most everyone hates it but I would rather do anything than clean(except maybe the dentist which I am also afraid of). I wish I loved to clean and be organized, but I would rather do something else, like reading all the funny blogs.

Okay so this was fun. I like reading everyones blogs. It makes me feel more in touch with what is going on in AZ!

Fun Weekend!

Okay so we had a very fun weekend. I went to Park City to go shopping with 3 of my friends and James took the kids camping. I met up with him after we were done. Shopping was very fun, except two of my friend's husbands kept calling and saying" when are you coming home?". I never get to go shopping without kids running around or a someone saying when are you coming home? Oh well, the life of a mother I guess. I have to say my husband was great and didn't rush me! Although, he was busy trying to take 4 kids camping. After we were done in Park City, James and I met up and went back to Yuba Lake to camp another night. It was very fun except, Maverik wasn't feeling well. He was throwing up and his eyes were very red and goopey. I have to take him to the Dr. today. Other than that we had a great time. It was a fun weekend. Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers!

Hello Everyone!

Hi Everyone,
I am knew to this whole blog thing so it will take a while for me to figure out. After I saw Brook's, I wanted to do one for my family. We are still in Utah, although I am trying to get James to come back to AZ. I miss everyone very much down there and can't wait to see Charly!! Her pics are so cute. James and I just finished another semester of school and I must brag and let every know I got straight A's and maintained my 4.0 GPA! We are taking a break for Summer!! Yeah!! The girls are sick of us always doing homework and taking tests. Although now we play softball 3 nights a week. James plays on Mon & Thurs. and we play coed on Fri. We will see how long that lasts.! Well hopefully I can figure this thing out and get more pics up soon!
