Thanks JD for taking them all over the fields!! We want to let the kids go sledding and do lots of fun things on Christmas Eve so they would be nice and tired later on! It totally worked. We got them up early... wrapped some presents and then we took them up to Grandma Pegs to go sledding. Afterwards they came in and had hot chocolate and cookies. Then we went around to all the cemetaries and lit candles on some graves. It was really cold!! Then we came home and the kids opened one gift from me and Landon, which were really cute gingerbread jammies! They all matched and were SO cute! Then this year Tim and Laynee bought each other gifts so they got to open them on Christmas Eve too! They had lots of fun playing with them! After that we watched a movie and went to bed! Later that night when Landon was putting Dax to bed he looked out the window and there were 4 deer wandering around out on our drive way! It was really cool, we tried to take pictures but it was so dark... We told the kids that Santa was really checking up on them before he could come!! It was such a fun Christmas!!

6 quirks...

This is a tag from Natalia! Rules are to list who tagged you, then tell about 6 quirks of yours. Then Tag 6 fellow bloggers!!

1. I have the WORST memory! I have a really hard time remembering names. When ever I am making cd's for spin I can never remember who sings what! I am always making lists of things! I have to write things down or I will forget!
2. I sit on my couch everyday @ 4 with a diet coke and watch OPRAH!!
3. I have to check my bed every night for spiders! I have a huge fear of them crawling on my at night!
4. I have to have about 10 min. (at least) of alone time to wake up in the morning. Don't bother me, don't even say a word to me!! After I eat my bowl of cereal I am ready to be nice! Needless to say I am NOT a morning person. I have had to be in the past but I had to fake it!
5. When I am nervous I bite my nails! I have tried so many times to break the habit but I can't!
6. After a long day of being home taking care of kids my favorite thing to unwind is to get a good work out, the more I sweat the better I feel! Most people like to get their workouts in early and start off their day...but not me I feel like it relieves me.
So there are 6 of my quirks, this was a hard one for me! I guess I am pretty plain I don't have a lot of quirks!!
Now I tag:

Picture Tag

I got this fun Tag from my cousin Tracie... I thought it was a fun tag! SO you go to your picture files, go to the 4th folder and pick the 4th picture and then blog about it!
This is a picture of Tim and myself when we were in Maui almost 2 years ago. We stayed at this amazing resort and there were about 7 pools that all connect with waterslides! There is one pool that is especially for kids and the bottom is all sand. It makes it really fun, they can build sand castles and play in it and then just go swim and wash off! It is such an amazing place! I hope that some day we will be able to go back again! We went with my family... my parents, bro's and sister and then us! It was so much fun, we made a lot of fun memories!

Isn't he SO cute!! We got these back today! I have been wanting to do a post the past couple of days but, I didn't really have anything exciting to say. I have had a pretty crappy week! Last Tues. was my birthday, so that night I sat down in my bed with a big fat peice of cake! yummo... but right after I finished I felt so sick! So the next morning I had to go and teach my Spin Class and then I had to go and help in Tim's class and I felt okay the whole time. But as soon as I got home I crashed on my couch. I don't think I moved much at all except to get my kids what they needed. I hurt so bad! It has been on and off ever since. Last night (sunday) I was up all night! This morning there was absolutely no liquids left inside me! Here is a little trivia... What happens to your tongue after taking "quite a bit" of Pepto? Your tongue will turn BLACK! Oh my gosh, I ran in to the computer to look up a black tongue?!? I have never seen such a sight! I was going to take a picture, but I was in a hurry trying to get ready for work and to take Tim to school, and the other two to their grandma's! So sorry you don't get to see it, but I am sure you can imagine. Well I hope that no one gets what ever I have had.... but if you do beware, it lasts forever and it sucks!

Cascade Springs

Sunday afternoon we decided to take a ride up Snake Creek Canyon. The leaves are at their peak right now. They are so beautiful!

This is right above the Golf Course, don't ya love how Tim has my smily eyes!

A few years ago when Tim was a baby we carved our names in some trees, but we couldn't find them. So we carved all of our names in this one. This time we won't forget where it is!

Somewhere along the way we got lost and took a wrong road. SO we ended up on the back side of the Alpine Loop. It was a georgous ride but it ended up taking us 3 1/2 hours! But along the way we stopped at Cascade Springs. The kiddo's had a blast exploring all the trails!

Tim and Laynee's favorite thing was to run up to all the signs and have us read what each one said.

I love it up there, there are some really cool spots for pictures. I tried really hard to get better ones of them, but they aren't very patient! And there were tons of people there!

AAWWW... aren't they so cute! I am so glad they can love each other... most of the time!

Just a little FYI... Landon will be 31 on Sunday!!

Tuesday, September 16, 2008


This afternoon I was in my house mopping my kitchen floor. Tim went outside to ride his bike. He has been so proud that he can ride with out his training wheels that it's the only thing he wants to do ALL the time! SO no big deal a few min. later I hear him call MOM, but I kept mopping... when I got finished I went out to check on him. He is standing on the corner with an older gentleman. I could tell something was wrong. I went running over and asked what happened. Tim started crying and said MOM, I GOT HIT BY A CAR! I could not believe it! So we sat down on the grass, his ankle was all bloodied up and instantly bruised. The man that was walking by said he was a retired doctor and he proceeded to check Tim over, thank goodness he was there! He said when he saw Tim he was sitting on the curb crying. So he did not see who had hit him. Tim said the car hit him and stopped for only a second and then drove away. He said it was a white car, like mine (a white ford explorer) but without the flower stickers. He could not see who was driving. It was around 230 in the afternoon, the time that school gets out. SO if any one noticed a white SUV around that time Tues. afternoon driving through timp meadows, I would appreciate any info.
This is the scape down the road where Tim got dragged on his bike.... if you notice there is a hole in the road, that is where the screw that holds the tire on was broken off still laying in the road when we got out there. There is a little brake mark and then the scape is about 8 feet long.

This is the part of the bike that got dragged down the road!

His bike is "totaled". That is the one thing he said. Now I have to get a new bike!

So this is the worst of his "oueys" (if that's how you spell it!) Pretty good scrape and bruiz. He is very lucky that is all he got considering! When he was telling me about it later he kept saying.. "Good thing I didn't die huh mom." Yes it IS a good thing! I can't not even imagine this life with out my little Timmy. I am SO thankful he didn't get hurt any worse!

Bridal Veil Falls

Sunday we decided to take a picnic to Bridal Veil! When we got there it was still kinda cold and shady everywhere, so we decided to hike up the falls!! Let me tell you... it was quite the hike. I have done it a few times, but it has been withOUT kids! Landon carried Dax, and the rest of us were on our own!

There were a few really scary moments! There are a couple spots where there have been rock slides and the rocks are like razor sharp! So Landon is in front of me with Dax, and Tim is trying to go around him and he slips... almost going down to the bottom and Landon is trying to grap him with Dax in his arms, thank goodness Landon caught him just in time. Tim only got a few scrapes up his leg! For a couple of min. I thought I was going to lose all 3 of my boys!! Eventually we made it up to the top and had fun looking around.

At the bottom there is a little pool of water that we have played in before, but this time the water was very frigid! Tim would not get in it! But Laynee and Landon went across and got some really cute pictures!

I don't think I have ever seen Landon so nervous! Tim was climbing all around and the rocks were wet and slippery! Luckily we didn't have any other accidents! We made it home safe and sound!

After the hike we sat down for a fun little picnic. Dax was so funny! He wanted everyone's food. He was trying to get Laynee's watermelon here! We had a great time, the park there is the perfect place to hang out and relax!

I don't know if I have ever really noticed how beautiful the falls are!

I forgot to mention how we went down on Sunday, we skipped out on Stake Confrence! We didn't want to try 2 hours with our kiddo's! We had to stop and get some ice at the 1-stop and Tim says Dad what is today? He told him it was Sunday and he says, "MOM DON'T DO IT!!!" He knew I wasn't supposed to be shopping on Sunday!! He is so aware of everything!! He wanted me to say a prayer when we were having our picnic and repent!! I am glad I have him to keep me on my toes!!

Going Going... GONE!

So it is official! Dax has taken his first steps. Friday we were sitting around playing with Dax and Landon said I bet Sunday he will start walking. SO Sunday we were really working on it with him. He took about 5 steps! He did it about 10 times on Sunday. The past couple days he will stand for awhile, take a few steps, stand there for a min, and then take a few more! So he is getting around pretty good! I am getting ready for all his bumps and bruises! I know he will be falling alot. Sometimes he will fall right to his face! I am glad we live at this house now, where there is soft carpet and not just hard wood!

The winner won a condo in Jackson Hole for 7 days, (good prize huh!) 2nd place won a week stay @ a condo in PC and 3rd place won a weekend @ Zermatt. So I think the winners were really happy.. and they all said they are addicted now!
So we partied it up Mexican style! It was lots of fun... and lots of really yummy food!!

DANCING....it has begun!

Today was such an exciting day for Laynee and myself! It was Laynee's 1st day of Dance!! She has been so excited for a really long time to start. The day we signed her up we went and bought her "dancing outfit" and she has worn it everyday since. She walks around saying, "I'm a dancer huh, mom?" She looked so cute and all grown up. Even Tim told her how beautiful she looked! Her teacher is Miss Trisha. She had so much fun today! I love to watch her get so excited when she is doing what she loves!
Today was also an exciting day for Tim. We found out that his Kindergarten teacher is going to be Miss P. He has a couple of his friends in his class too. Kindergarten is going to be a great year! We get to go and meet Miss P. tomorrow afternoon and then he begins on Thursday!! Holy cow, I have a Kindergartener... My next post will probably be a picture of me crying as he leaves me! :(

Bear Lake 2008!

Well this wasn't our normal Bear Lake trip this year! We were planning to go for the whole weekend, but unfortunately we only made a day trip! Landon started a new part time job at Ashworth, so he couldn't get time off. So Torry and her kids and my kids and I all loaded up and drove up for the day! It ended up being alot of fun.
We got up there around 10 am, and it was perfect beach weather. The kids played, Dax slept for a little while. We got to lay out!

It was great times!! For some reason there seemed to be an awful lot of bee's around me!! They kept landing on me and Dax. So I would swat them away. I must have been too late one time, Dax got a sting... He really didn't like it. He cried for a very long time. His poor little finger swelled up and looked like it was going to pop off his little hand! After some tylenol and a nap he was okay!
After we played for awhile we went over to town and got us a raspberry shake and onion rings... YUM-O! They truly are the best. I think when you are camping (even for a day) nothing even compares!!
It was lots of fun, hopefully next year we will be able to make it a longer trip! And maybe Dax will be over the put everything in your mouth stage... even sand! But thanx to Jackie for planning it this year!!

Fridge RADER!!

So yesterday I was in the middle of cleaning out my fridge, I was at the sink washing down the shelves and when I came back to the fridge this is what I found!! I swear Dax has to be right in the middle of everything!! But by the time I put the camera down and a shelf or two back in he rolled out some how and scraped up his eye!

Happy Fairdays!!

Fairdays have come and gone! This year we entered Dax into the famous Baby Contest! It was so much fun. He was entered in the fastest crawler, the diaper derby and the most photogenic contests. It was so much fun to see all these cute babies! I think they were all so hot and tired, it was hard for alot of them to perform!! This is a picture of all the winners from each event.

Dax was of corse the fastest crawler 6-9 months. It was so funny! All the babies (I think there were about 6 of them) lined up ready to crawl. They said ready, set, go and all the babies just sat there looking around.. like what am I doing here?!? After about 2 min. I got Dax's attention and he was off crawling, but half way across the stage he stopped. Some of the other babies started crawling toward him and then he hurried and finished all the way to mom!! Yea, good job buddy!! I knew he would win this one... he is a little speed demon at our house. I can't keep him in one spot, he is everywhere, and really fast!
They had some really cute prizes too! He got a little basketball hoop toy. I think Laynee and Tim are enjoying it more than he is!! The girl by me is Angie Neubuger. Her little boy won the "So you think you can dance" portion... he was really cute.
The Diaper Derby was hilarious!! I have it on video (I wish I could post it!!) So I had Landon do this one, so he could redeem himself from the last time! Well he definately did NOT get the job done!! He was 4th out of 4!! But I won't blame him, we are blaming the diapers for being so hard to get open!! The guy that won, his poor baby was traumatized!! She was screaming so hard!! But it was really fun to watch all the dad's try to be so fast!! I definately give Landon props for even going on stage to try!!!

The rest of fair days was really fun too. We spent all day thursday at the Carnival, our kids were wiped out. I think they slept till 10 the next morning! My brother's showed their pigs, so we went over and watched for a little while! Can I just say I don't know how other mom's do it. It is so hard keeping track of 3 kids! Every time I decide to take my kids "out" by myself I feel so frazzled trying to keep my eyes on all of them!!

Saturday night we were in the parade with the Fit Stop Crew! I think by the time I got home that night we ended up walking/running about 5 miles!! After the parade we went to the rodeo, which was tons of fun. Tim did the stick horse race! He claims he won it!! But with 100 little kids it was really hard to tell who won! Laynee slept right through it all. She slept for most of the rodeo! Then they had fireworks... they were amazing! We had a really fun week. - Thanks to my family who helped me so much with my kiddo's!!
