Yay Womens Conference

Ok, so I promised that I would keep up with the blogs, so I better make good my word.
Jacoy and I went to womans conference at BYU and we had a Blast. Thank you to our wonderful family. Mom, Sheila, Sheri, Jessica, Stephanie, Courtney, and Jacoy. The playing was fun, and the conference was wonderful, and We can't wait til next year.

We got the garden almost all planted, and I am excited for little green shoots to start popping up from the ground. I love this time of year, with all the new growth and flowers. It's almost as good as fall time with all the beautiful colors, and cooler weather.

Spring or winter???

I have to say, the calendar says it is spring, and we have had a few nice days, but Mother nature constantly is telling me that it is still winter. We keep getting snow! Even my tulips and daffodils are confused. I had a daffodil that bloomed yesterday, and by the end of the day, was bent clear over and covered with snow. I am really ready for constant spring. I love snow in the winter, but I am ready for just rain and sun. That is my wish for today.

2 Year Olds

I sometimes wonder how we mothers ever manage to get through the 2 year old stage. We love our children so much, but then they have a moment or a day, or a week or whatever that I think "Oh my gosh, I can't take it even one more minute".
I love my little Joseph to death. He is so sweet, but today, I am exhausted. I have been working on a 1500 piece jigsaw puzzle, and have worked on it for weeks. It's very hard. I came in this morning, and he had totally destroyed it. Then he dumped out all of Jacoys red nail polish, and painted his clothes, and all his fingers(beautiful), then we went to walmart to the vision center for Ammons eye appt. and he messed up all the toys, dumped out the crayons, and when I was cleaning that up, ran out and was touching all the glasses. The we were walking down the isle to the electronics, and he kept reaching out and knocking things off the shelves. Needless to say, I was so irritated by the time we got to the car. I just want to scream. I hope tomorrow is a better day.

Yay Spring!

So I have decided that i am really glad for spring. I thought I was ok with winter still, but we went to Ammon's track meet today, and with the warmth, and the slight breeze, and the green grass, and the flowers coming up, I decided that I am enjoying it.
It was fun to watch my son in his first track meet today. He didn't win, but he did good for him, and I was proud. Maybe it's because I used to do track, but I really enjoy watching the meets. Can't wait for the next one.
I am in a biggest Loser contest with Aarons work. I love having to be accountable to someone else for weigh in. I am doing good. 11 lbs down so far. Just wanted to say that. I am happy with my progress.

Ok, I have to say, I am ready for spring. I am tired of the cold days, the cold wind, and the muck we have to step in to go out and do the chores. I am ready for spring flowers, green grass, and to plant my garden. I want to be outside and play with the puppy, and let Joseph play, and ride his bike. Today is close, we have 54 degrees. It's just teasing me i think.
We did get a new puppy. So cute. He is half beagle, and half australian shepherd, so he wont be a big dog. Maybe now the kids will play with him. He got so fat in just 1 week, that the harness I got for him will only fit around his shoulders now. So funny. I rolled him on his back to scratch his tummy, and he couldn't roll back over for a few minutes. His name is Dopey!! What a luv.

What a weekend. Jacoy plowed the suburban into the garage and pulled out half the wall in the garage. Of course she said it wasn't her fault.(whatever). So now we have to fix that. Just a month ago, she high centered the car, and ripped off the bumper. She is starting to be an expensive child to keep.

We got a new puppy on Wed. So cute!! His name is Dopey. He is part Australian Shepherd, and part beagle. We love him. Joseph espesially loves him, and they like to wrestle on the ground.

Warmer weather finally. It will be in the 50's for the next few days. I am so ready for spring. Can't wait to plant my garden and have fresh veggies and fruits again. I am even ready for canning season.

been a while

Ok, so i had started a blog page a few months ago, but never kept up with it. I guess I am not good like others at just writing daily things, or maybe I don't think i have an interesting enough life to write about. I can just never think of what to write.
I don't know how single moms do it. Aaron travels a lot, and so I end up being mom and dad at the same time while he is gone. It's exhausting. I appreciate all he does even more when he is gone. I have so many blessings, and i need to take time more often to realize the things I do have. It's a good life.
