Grocery Shopping with Kids

This Ebay description totally cracked me up! Scroll down to read the description after clicking the link. All I can say is thank goodness I don't have six kids to grocery shop with! :) I hope you all get a great laugh out of this!

Old Job

After spending a few days with my husband we sent him back to Grants Pass, Oregon :( I was very said to see him go, but while he was here he had the opportunity to have an interview with his old boss at the Brigham city Wal-mart store, and they have offered to take him back, but the GREAT news is instead of him losing 20 thousand dollars a year he will only lose 6 thousand a year to step down, and there is more...the south Logan wal-mart store will be opening sometime around summer of 2008, and they say he would have a good chance of stepping up to a co-manager again when that store opens up, and so I must say we have been blessed, and so in a couple of weeks Tyler will be here for good, and we are going to start looking for a house :) we are extremely excited for everything that is opening up for, and all the opportunities that have come our way. Well I just wanted to share the exciting news, and I hope all is going well with you and your families. Heather: Those pictures are cute, and thanks for sharing them!

Hey just a thought maybe we should just comment on the main page then everything may not be everywhere and easier to find! Just a thought!

"Wednesday Madness"

The title is in reference to a book my father used to read to me when I was little, where the main character would fake sick every Wednesday in order to miss school. :) But seriously, I think I may be getting a sinus infection. I have this headache that won't go away and I feel blah. Is sick season already approaching? I haven't been sick since I had Miles and I've just realized that this is not going to be fun. You don't get to take off from being a mom just because you don't feel well, and considering Jared left at 7:00a.m. and got back at 8:30p.m. I don't think he's going to be much help. Rats!
Anyway, I had to post these pictures that my mom took the week before I left town. Aww!What cute kids!!!
This past week was fun! My Mom and Dad came out to Indiana to see us(well really to see Miles) and I got to spend time with them while Jared studied. My mom spoiled me by bringing me a new baby quilt she made for Miles, a new wall-hanging and a new tablerunner. We made new curtains for my living room and for Miles room and decorated Miles nursery while she was here as well! It's kind of funny while we were living in Salt Lake our living room was decorated in black and red and when we moved I decided I wanted something different, so I bought this really pretty gold fabric before we moved and decided I would redo every thing black and gold! Well I was walking through Walmart the first night we were here and walked into a sea of black and gold. That's right! I inadvertantly decorated my new living room in Purdue colors! Nobody can say we don't have school spirit around here!
Oh, Yeah! I forgot to mention that the new video I posted is my friends Jamo and Sarah's video that they posted on YouTube. So cute! It make me smile. Hope it does for you as well!

Naptime Tips?

We are getting pretty desperate for any naptime tips any of you moms/ aunts/ friends have. I just don't have the heart to listen to Allie cry herself to sleep anymore (hence the photo of her in her swing). Is it too terribly bad to let her nap in her swing? Help, please :)

Wow, never done this before. Oh well, learn something new every day, right?
It's so awesome to hear from all you girls. I can't believe where everyone is going in their lives. I'm glad all of you are posting pictures of your kids, it make me jealous that I don't have kids...or a dog! (Does a fish count?) Ok, so my life is pretty fun. I am working in the OB/GYN department located in the University of Utah Hospital. My official title is Exec. Sec. but I humor myself and say that I'm part sec. and part office manager. I really am enjoying the things I'm learning and have added another layer to my medical background! I live in Murray, but will soon be moving downtown for a change of scene. I think I'm the only one still we won't go there.
Fun things, hmmm. I will be going to New York at the end of September and am already planning my next big trip. (Wildly jealous yet? I had to try after seeing all the cute kid pictures!) I get to see Wicked, and that I am really thrilled about becuase I listen to that cd all the time. Well, that kind of sums up big events for me. Hopefully I'll get to talk to some of you girls soon!

Hey Friends!!!

Heather, you are the best!!!
How fun to be able to see everyone and all the beautiful children!! Wow!! I had no idea everyone was all over the country! Anyway, I hope all is going well for you and your families!! Josh and I are still living in Utah. He is going to school at UVSC and I am now teaching Kindergarten! We are both working very hard and hardly get to see one another during the week. We don't have any children, but we did get a cute little dog. He sure does require a lot of attention and work. He is a miniature schnauzer and his name is Stex. He is a fun little guy to have around.
I miss everyone dearly and love reading your e-mails and everything. It makes me feel like I still know each one of you. Although, I still picture most friends like they were in Highschool because I have not seen some of you since then. I think it would be fun to see all your little ones. Well, have a great day and keep smiling (someone cares about you.)
