I Graduated...Sort of.....

On May 11, 2010 I graduated from school with my LPN certificate...even though I have 2 classes to still complete this summer. It was a blast and I was asked to speak as my class president. I was scared for some reason....strange knowing that I NEVER have a problem speaking. I hope to stay in contact with all the great friends that I've met here....

Nicole and I looking pretty good at 4:00am!!!

Jason my school "hubby"

Avery's Kindergarten FIeld Trip to the Zoo

On the 28th of May I had the pleasure of attending Avery's kindergarten field trip to the zoo. It was a blast, and happened to be the day before her birthday so her class was celebrating it that day.

The holidays are over...

Christmas and New Year's were busy as usual, but it fun- filled. The kids were in a Christmas pageant at church.

I'll post a family picture, Avery was apparently "done."


Looking forward to a week off before classes start that the kids are back in school, the "to-do" list was supposed to be more complete than it is now...as for New Year's resolutions I have made a few, some small and some large a few of the highlights are:

~~Start Running again...(my treadmill was terrified today!)
~~Make rather than buy bread
~~Choose health whenever possible ( Last picture where I look like this!)
~~Graduate in July
~~Past the state boards
~~Read the entire Bible
~~Choose health for myself and m family whenever possible
~~Remember my damn grocery bags!!!
~~De-clutter my house of 730 things (like 2ish a day-not counting garbage)
~~Strengthen my marriage further
~~Continue parenting with logic and from the heart

~~~~so 2010 here we come.

We are alive and well

I know it has been forever, life has been crazy! Avery started Kindergarten and is loving it! Her teacher Mrs. Ellis understands Avery completely. Jackson is in the 2nd grade and he has the best teacher we could ask ask for, Mrs. Plum. I finished my first semester in Nursing school and am happy to say that I am still alive. We had a great Thanksgiving, and are looking forward to the Christmas break. I have so much to be thankful for this year, happy and healthy children, a family that loves unconditionally and my Lord and savior that always sees me through.

Here is our Christmas wishes to you:

Water Babies

I have lived in Idaho my entire life and cannot believe that I have never been to Jensen's Grove. It is awesome, we had so much fun on Friday that we decided to go back on Saturday. We met my good friend Pam there and played with her kids, Katie and Braxton. If you haven't been, check it out!!! There is a area roped off for kids that is the perfect depth, a skate park, picnic tables, playgrounds...it is the best....and it only cost a few bucks in gas.

Because Meds Are Expensive




Not that I am in anyway advertising the obsessive use of medicine....as I believe that they are often "over used" in this country (not that I dive into that ravine.) However when you do need one they can be really expensive. I came across this link a few months ago and thought maybe some of you could use it. I have printed and used some of these coupons so I know they work. Hope this helps someone.

GIRLS NIGHT OUT!!!

Well I had the rare opportunity to have a kid free night out with the girls this past weekend and we had a BLAST....due to an "over-crowding" issue we ended up seeing 2 movies and having appetizers at Applebee's

The first movie we saw was:
I have not laughed so hard in this in a really long time.....and as most of you know.....having kids and laughing that hard comes at a cost !!!


Second we saw:
It was your typical warm fuzzy romantic comedy.....except 3 simple words.....Ryan Reynolds.....YUMMY
