I am so excited!!!

This weekend is going to be really fun. I can not wait. On Friday, I am going to Tim McGraw concert with all my girlfriends! Lindsay and I have made a tradition that we are going to go and do something the last week in June, first week in July. Last year, we went to Kenny Chesney. This year we are going to Tim. The reason why we are doing this, is because our anniversary's with our ex's are in June and July and we want to treat each other to a fun date! So anyways, this year we decided to ask a couple of our friends to go with us. I can not wait, We are going to have a blast!

On Saturday, I am going to St. George with my friend Lenzy to do a Lia Sophia party. Yes, We are leaving on Saturday morning and coming home on Sunday. I know short but sweet! I can not wait.. We are going to have a blast!

New Calling

So I have dreaded the day that the bishop calls me into his office to see if I would have a calling in the ward. I have loved just being able to go to church and relax! Well, one of my good friends in the ward Vanessa, is now the Primary President.. Yeah, you know where this is going! So... I took Oakley into Nursery on Sunday and there was no leaders in there. I usually stay until someone gets there so that Oakley will be okay. I hate leaving the kids in there with no leaders...
One of the Primary Presidency came in to check and see who was in there and low and behold, I get asked to stay.. Yippee! No, it was really okay. I got to play cars with all of the kids! After leaving the Nursery to go and get Harley I get pulled aside and asked about a calling. He said that I had my choice of any(cub scouts, nursery, or a primary teacher). I really didn't care what one. So I told him any. Later that night I get another phone call and Vanessa said that she wanted me to be her assistant. I was like what do you mean assistant!? She said that she is over the Nursery and would like an assistant to take over and clean it up and get things organized and be there if they needed it. I let her know that I could do that. So my calling...... Nursery Advisor! woohoo..
Now I get to help re-organize the Nursery. I have been thinking about this for a couple days, and if any of you have ideas or things that work great in your Nursery, let me know.. I want to hear!

They walk among us!

I received an email the other day and I keep on going back to it because some of these are funny! I just wanted to share with everyone the humor! Enjoy!

They Walk Among Us and Many Work in Retail!

I was at the checkout of a K-Mart. The clerk rang up $46.64 charge. I
gave her a fifty dollar bill. She gave me back $46.64. I gave the money
back to her and told her that she had made a mistake in MY favor. She
became indignant and informed me she was educated and knew what she was
doing, and returned the money again. I gave her the money back. Same
scenario! I departed the store with the $46.64.

They Walk Among Us and Many Work in Retail!
I walked into a Starbucks with a buy-one-get-one-free coupon for a
Grande Latte. I handed it to the girl and she looked over at a little
chalkboard that said "buy one- get one free." "They're already buy-one-
get-one-free," she said, "so I guess they're both free". She handed me
my free Lattes and I walked out the door.

They Walk Among Us!
One day I was walking down the beach with some Friends when one of them
shouted, "Look at that dead bird!" Someone looked up at the sky and
said, "Where?"

They Walk Among Us!
While looking at a house, my brother asked the real estate agent which
direction was north because, he explained, he didn't want the sun waking
him up every morning. She asked, "Does the sun rise in the North?"
When my brother explained that the sun rises in the East, and has for
sometime, she shook her head and said, "Oh I don't keep up with all that
stuff."

They Walk Among Us!!
I used to work in technical support for a 24/7 call center. One day I
got a call from an individual who asked what hours the call center was
open. I told him, "The number you dialed is open 24 hours a day, 7 days
a week." He responded, "Is that Eastern or Pacific time?" Wanting to end
the call quickly, I said, "Uh, Pacific."

They Walk Among Us!
My sister has a lifesaving tool in her car designed to cut through a
seat belt if she gets trapped. She keeps it in the trunk.

They Walk Among Us!
My friends and I were on a beer run and noticed that the cases were
discounted 10%. Since it was a big party, we bought 2 cases. The
cashier multiplied 2 times 10% and gave us a 20% discount.

They Walk Among Us!
I couldn't find my luggage at the airport baggage area, so I went to the
lost luggage office and told the woman there that my bags never showed
up. She smiled and told me not to worry because she was a trained
professional and I was in good hands. "Now," she asked me, has your
plane arrived yet?"

They Walk Among Us!
While working at a pizza parlor I observed a man ordering a small pizza
to go. He appeared to be alone and the cook asked him if he would like
it cut into 4 pieces or 6. He thought about it for some time before
responding. " Just cut it into 4 pieces; I don't think I'm hungry enough
to eat 6 pieces."


Yep, They Walk Among Us!
They Walk Among Us, and they Reproduce, and they drive on the same roads
as we do, and Worst of all .....they Vote!




I'm an ANGEL!

Today, I was getting ready and Harley asked if she could pick out Oakley and her clothes for the day. I told her that was fine but make sure I check them before you get dressed. She said okay. Went and grabbed Oakley's clothes and showed me then went and got him dressed... even helped him with a clean pull-up!(what a helper!)
She then came and showed me a skirt that she wanted to wear and asked what shirt would go with it. I told her that any plain color shirt would match. She went and got dressed and then walked into the bathroom, got a brush and back to her room. She was in there for a bit and just talking to herself. I was almost ready and she came and asked me to help her put her hair in a clip. She said 'I want this part up and the rest down.' I showed her how to do it and grabbed the side and then she put the clip in. (so did not look straight!) She then walked back into her room. She was in there for a bit and I kept on hearing her talking to herself. I told her that I was ready to go, and to hurry. She came out with thick pink lipstick on and a necklace and blue matching shoes! I looked at her and laughed and she said 'What mom?!' I told her that she was a dork but a cute one. She responded with 'No mom, I'm an Angel!' I started laughing and then had to take these pics!

We got in the car and I had to run back in the house to get my sunglasses. I came out with them on and she said 'your a dork!' I looked at her and said 'no i'm and angel' She laughed and said ' Whatever mom.I am!' Man, I love my kids!

Tuesday Tell ALL....

I got this off of Elise's blog and decided that I would start it too. I know, I know. I am still going to do Flashback Friday as well! It gives me some ideas to blog about when I am in a pinch! So this weeks topic is SIGHT.
When I read this I thought of a TON of things. Here of my thoughts on SIGHT. If I could not see, I would only be able to smell, hear, taste and touch... That would mean I would not be able to see my beautiful kids! Along with them here are some other things that I am thankful to be able to see with my SIGHT... (even though it REALLY sucks! yeah, I am BLIND... so does that mean I can really see... I think it is selective seeing!)

My kids
the mountains
my car (without it I'd walk)
my jewelry (what would I do without Lia Sophia!)
My FAMILY
my T.V. (there goes my reality shows!)
the sun
Smiling faces
Money (even though I don't have any)
my dirty house (if it was clean then I would not be spending time LOOKING at my kids!)
my computer
my pictures
my camera
my phone (i would not be able to read that AMAZING text I received today. I am so happy, thanks Ash!)

Oh, so much more... But I know I am bugging! So.. what is your topic on SIGHT?

SlEePoVeR

The kids are having a sleepover! yay! Emily is at the hospital having another surgery on her birthday... yuck. I picked up Erika from daycare and have been watching her since. The kids are having so much fun. My kids go to bed at 8, and Erika usually goes to bed a little later. They are having so much fun playing together and jibbering in the bed. While I am writing this, I can hear one scream and another one cry and then back and forth! You would think that they are brother and sisters NOT cousins! Here are some cute pics of the two. One had their finger in their nose, and then I asked them to stop and the other one did it! How cute! =) now I know why I only have 2 and not 3 kids alone!!
