So I decided to make some cookies or something today so I put my butter on my counter to thaw. Well I came into the dark kitchen to find Lydia standing in the middle of my kitchen having a snack. She had unwrapped the butter, and didn't even tear the package might I add, and was taking bites out of my stick of butter. MMMMM what a yummy snack! Anybody want some of the cookies!!

Oh Riley!

So this is what Riley tells me today while she is eating dinner:
(said w/ exasperation)
Riley: Mom?
me: yes
Riley: Everyday I keep thinking about Jesus
me: Well that's good
Riley: I mean it's every Sunday, everday, all day everyday even at meal times, I just can't stop thinking of Jesus! It's all the time, every day! *sigh*

I don't really know what to make of that silly girl!!

It's got to go...

Well, it is time for me to get rid of my stock from my dying website!!
I will be yard sale-ing the rest of my inventory on Saturday the 28th but thought I would pass the word along to family and friends first.
If you would like to buy any of the kits just let me know. I would really prefer not to have to ship them but let me know if you can't make it up here and really really want something.
I attached pictures of all the kits I have. There might be some embellishments too, but I haven't gone through those yet.
So let me know if you want any of these. The kits w/ embellishments will be $5 and the kits w/out will be $3 or 2 for $5. You can paypal me or just come over and bring cash when you get them. (I am in Gilbert)
Pass this along to anybody you know that might be interested!!
Thanks guys!!

If you can't see a picture or want a better picture of any of them just let me know and I can email them to you.
The first 4 you can find detailed descriptions of on the site

biggest losers!

Okay so I participate in an on-line biggest losers group. Some of the people I know and some of them I don't. But it is nice to have to weigh in once a week and stuff. So Anyway we are starting our next round on Thursday so I thought I would invite you to join us if you would like! It pretty much goes like this: you weigh in at home and email one of the girls your weight and then she tracks it and posts the weekly results. If you want to put money in the pot it is $10. For every person that put money in she takes $1 per week and gives that to the winner of the week. The round lasts for 8 weeks and the overall winner takes the remaining $2 from every person that put in. You can choose to put money in or not. Either way it is great.
Also this round there are some people that just want to maintain their weight and need to report to somebody so there will be a point system. You can choose to do the points or just choose to lose weight. Points are basically given for doing good things for your body and subtracted for doing bad things for your body. If you wanna check it out you can go here
Anyway if you want to participate let me know and I can get you her email.

One year older...

I don't know if am wiser though!!
I had a b-day last Thursday and somehow it managed to continue through yesterday!! So here is a run-down of my b-day weekend!
I have/had a laptop that was a piece of shmee that Eliott kept fixing and then it kept breaking so for my b-day he bought me this cute little thing!
It is called a netbook. It is smaller than a laptop but just as functioning. It doesn't have a disc drive but you can get an external one. It fits into my purse! Seriously it is sooooo cute!! and you know how somtimes you get a present that you know the giver wanted or something you know will turn into a family present. well not this! it is pink!!!! so it is all mine and i absolutely love love love it!! Eliott is the best!!
My actual b-day was just another day though. The kids were all sick and it was just there. But my awesome mother-in-law helped me out w/ kids that day so she saved me!!!
Then Friday I went to a friends house to play (who also happened to have me over and a couple friends for a movie and dinner on Wednesday. ) When I got home at 5, I knew Eliott had something planned so I was ready to go out and then there was a knock on the door and it was one of my good friends from Casa Grande. It was so fun to see her and her hubby but I was so confused. So finally somebody explains. Eliott had planned a come and go surprise party for me. He wouldn''t tell me who he had contacted so everytime the doorbell rang it was a surprise. It was seriously such a fun idea and I loved it and for sure felt loved!! Then for those who couldn't come they were instructed to call during the specified times. So I got a few phone calls and emails too!! It was so sweet!! Thank you guys for coming, especially those who had to drive a bit!! I really really appreciated it!!!
Then on Saturday I managed to get out by myself to do my grocery shopping but first I went shopping shopping! I just found a skirt but it was only $5!!! I am on a mission for red heels if anyone sees cute ones let me know!
Then on Sunday we got to go to Eliott's mom's house for my b-day dinner. She makes the yummiest egg rolls so that was my request this year and boy did she deliver! Soooooo good!!
So it was fabulous! I had a great b-day. It will be quite a different week this week! Oh well!!!
Thanks everybody for making me feel sooooooo loved!!!

Funny Girl!

You know how you go through phases w/ your kids. Well right now we are in a phase where Lexi is hilarious! She is constantly saying things that crack us up. Here are few:
We were walking to the park the other day and she fell. Not bad but it hurt her knee. As soon as we get to the park I sit down on the bench and the kids go off playing. I here Lex say to the other kids, in a funny voice "oh no! Now I have to walk like an old man!"
I look up and she is walking half bent over, pulling her dress up a little w/ a limp.

One of her favorite things to say these days is "I's a kid now mom!"

I don't think I could count how many times a day she says:
Lexi: Mom?
Me: Yes Lex?
Lexi: Um, I love you
Seriously this one happens alllllll day long! I think she might love me!!

I can't think of the other ones now. I always say, I gotta write that down and then I forget. But she is too cute. I can't seem to get enough of that funny girl!
