With Friday being some type of holiday that the boys didn't have school (again)...we needed something to entertain.
It is an arena with trampolines all over.
The boys had gone once before and loved it and I was able to get in at half price.
Also, being the most amazing person ever.....Brooke (on her day off) brought down the hoard to join in the fun.

Kids were in heaven. Nothing better than playing with the ones you love.
These three were meant to be together.

How many people does it take to help Paige up to the top? josh and Aiden were awesome getting Paige and Morgan up.

Who doesn't love a "Hannibal Lector" kiss from Jackson. Oakley just loves Jackson and I think the feelings are mutual.

My position for the time.
It was good times had by all,
and nothing better then getting all the energy out.

Random Thoughts

Random thoughts and experiences.
I was able to go with Brad to one of his classes and his to lecture. I really enjoyed it. However, I never thought I would willing walk into a classroom at BYU.
Jackson is eating his way through his crib. I don't know how to stop him.

Nothing better than a trip to Haggermans

Why is it that my kids have an endless supply of energy and I never seem to have enough?

I try not to buy happiness, but I saw these and loved them. My signature color black with some bling. I saw them and they made me happy. I just wish I was headed somewhere warm to enjoy them.

Sunday is the day of rest...not at my house

I like being loved and needed, but how do I get this little guy to "need" me less? I have to move within a 3 foot radius or my little guy losses it. Not loving the needy phase.
Pei Wei
I don't know why, but I just can't get enough.
Nothing better than a Jensen lunch date. One of my favorites. Today we met up at Yanni's with Mom, Maga, Jill, Brooke, Jamie, Annie Maisy, Me, Josh, Jackson, Amy, Aiden, Andrew, Oakley, Paige, Morgan, and Oliver. We all showed up. We were a sight and had many looks from others. I love to watch when we gather and you can see people counting kids. Love lunch dates.

I hear that going through trials makes us stronger.....I often wonder if I really want to be stronger??

Two Wheels

Today was the day!!!
I am so excited.
Brad took the training wheels off Josh's bike.
Josh took to it with no problem.
I tried last summer to get josh to ride on two wheels and he wouldn't.

It's a beautiful thing.

With Josh's new found freedom it can only be a matter of time before his first major wipe out will take place.

Happy Birthday Jackson!!

I can't believe it. My little guy is 1 year old. A year ago today this little guy came into the world and I couldn't have been any happier.
Barbara Bush once said, "parenting makes for long days and short years".
I look back at the past year and it went screaming right by, but I had many days that I thought would never end.
I am so grateful for my little guy.

His smile is contagious
He growls like a lion
Loves his brothers
Is happy as can be in the bath
Gets so excited when it is meal time
I love having this little guy as my companion through out the day. He keeps me smiling and I love watching him play with his toys and discovering new things.
Love this little guy!

Movie Round-Up

Over the past week I have seen so many movies. I am beginning to wonder if I really did anything else.

How Do You Know
That is the way the movie felt. I always love the shows Reese Witherspoon does, but this one feel short. Not a fan.
Yogi Bear
The boys and I went to see this one the other day and the boys loved it. I really like the actor, Tom Cavanghan from his days in the show Ed. Good Clean family fun.
We hit this show with Annie and Jamie. As a mom of all boys, to sit in a princess movie with Miss. A (the princess Guru) I have a new outlook on the Disney Princess magic that can touch a little girl. Like all Disney movies this one was great.

Nanny McPhee Returns
As a HUGE fan of the first movie I hoped the second would live up to it.
Wonderful. Loved the ending.
I love all the color that these movie have.

Loved the first hour of the movie, but then went down hill from there. She needs Brad Pitt has her on screen co-star.
Like everyone that saw it before me I was trying to figure it all out after credits. I am sure I will have to watch a few more times to really understand it all.
I loved the music for the main title.

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps
It was a good sequel, but didn't keep up with all the "wall street" vocabulary.

...also watched The Notebook one afternoon. I just love it!!!

I guess know that Christmas break is coming to a close we will all have to get back to real life.
