It's About Dang Time

Okay family and friends. I know that you have been asking that I do this, so here it is. I am just going to start with the last couple of months, and go forward.

First picture is of Brooks' first day of preschool. He is loving it. He wants to go everyday, and seems to be catching on rather quickly. Sometimes, Emma gets a little jealous if he learns something first. He can swim without the help of floatation devices, he can whistle, and he is not scared to smack the heck out of bugs. Love the little man!

Next up, Emma lost her first tooth. She came to me conference weekend, and said her tooth was loose. I was really surprised. She wiggled it all day on Saturday and Sunday. Sunday night she said that it was bothering her. Cam and I were watching t.v., and out she came with a bloody headband and her tooth in her hand. She got annoyed with her tooth and placed the elastic headband on either side of her tooth, and pulled. She was fine until she saw the blood. She only freaked out a little though, because I was laughing. She got a lot from the tooth fairy, because she was brave. She now has yet another loose tooth on the bottom. Go Emm's!!!

Next, I have expressed to Cameron my desire to get outdoors more. He agreed, and yesterday we went hiking. It was quite the experience. The desert although beautiful after rain, can also be ugly without the rain. It was a really pretty hike though once we gained some altitude. We saw a tarantula, and of course Brooks wanted to kill it. We tried to explain to them, that we were in their house so to speak and to leave them alone. We saw a lot of lizards, and grasshoppers. The kids were exhausted at the end, and the adults didn't fare much better either. We just need to do this more often.

Well, that is about all for now. Just hope that I can keep this up.

Weight Loss

Well, I guess I am doing a weight loss thing with my sisters. I have to post my weight and I am not really sure what else. I am 5'7 and I do weigh 225 pounds. Ouch! I don't really  like admitting that to anyone. When I got married 11 years ago, I weighed 115 pounds. I know I won't get that skinny again, but I am aiming for 140 pounds. I think that is pretty realistic. Here's to hopin' I guess I have to include a photo.

Goodbye little Fudge!

My little sister had a guinea pig go to guinea pig heaven. Made me think of the Saved By The Bell episode. Enjoy!

Happy Halloween

This year was pretty fun. Our ward had a huge carnival, games, popcorn, cotton candy, bounce house, and a fun little train to ride. I think everyone had a good time. The only disappointing thing was the food. It was just chips with cheese on top. I promised my Mom that I would post some pictures, so here ya go.
