If this was us, we'd be rich!!!

This reminds me of my sisters! (except Only about 3 can really sing) Each one has a personality and each is different, but yet they are all cohesive! I love my sisters.

check out these girls on youtube.

I got a new calling the other day: YW president for Cheney 2nd ward. I am overwhelmed for sure. The amount of pressure, and thoughts that go through my head is crazy. I can definitely feel the mantle of this calling. Ever since I was called to do it my mind races all day long, and its funny that I don't have any more time or desire to watch my favorite TV shows or movies. Guess who is teaching me a lesson...
The boys are good. Jack is still obsessed with the DS and asks me all day long when "Brady is going to take a nap" because thats the time designated for him to play. Cam still has 4 more days of school....uggggghhhh. I would like him home to entertain his brothers! This summer we will go to some free movies, and now that Tiffany got an apartment in a complex with a pool, we will be permanent residents there also.
Mitch got a job with furniture row outlet, but promptly quit when another came up that was closer to Cheney. He works for the recycle dept on campus and loves it. Its kinda chill, but also gets to drive around campus in a big truck being dirty. So its perfect.
The house we wanted to rent, kinda fell through so we will stay here in the trailer until something Awesome pops up. But until then, we WILL be happy living on top of each other...right?
New phone number for me is: 509-440-1803

Jack's joke for the day:
Why did the popsicle be quiet?
Because popsicles don't talk.

this week is a busy one, especially the weekend. We have soccer for cam, pack meeting, mutual, girls camp meetings, EQ mechanics party, and I have work. I'm a demonstrator for a dog food company and set up a table once a week at Petsmart demo'ing the dogfood. Hopefully it's easy. I'm not so much a salesman. But guarenteed hours and money is great. Mitch has an interview with Furniture Row today. That would be great if we got that too. So many things I want to buy lately, with the spring weather, makes me want to paint some furniture!

Last night we had a ward party to raise money for the yw in my ward for girls camp. I was the head of this event (as the first counselor) and it went awesome. I was so proud of the way the girls did with their desserts to be auctioned, authentic Mexican food (i even learned how to cook it), and the decor (mom's awesome flag idea) I'll post some pictures. Happy Mothers day to me. I'm taking it easy and doing nothing.

Cam had another soccer game this morn and he is becoming so aggressive. Whats also funny is he is actually understanding and comprehending the guidance Mitch and I and his coach give him. That's the cool part. Still a loss though.

After the game we came home and had a little birthday party for Brady. Dollar store toys and some cupcakes. It was good. I don't know what he wished for, but I wished him to have a not so naughty year.

We went to the house we will be house sitting for. Its a old big "chalet" type house and sits on a ton of acreage. We are so pumped. It'll be nice (after I move all her crap into a closet). I hope to be there by the end of the month. Allemans will have our Christmas there this winter. And I promise at least 3 feet of snow.

*Camden is playing soccer this spring and is doing really well. His team keeps losing but he seems to enjoy it. He is playing pretty aggressive, but the coaches (young EWU students) want to confuse the kids with too much offensive/defensive stuff. Then in a game they are scared to go over the center line because that's not their position. Brady is on the sidelines kicking extra balls all over the place, that kid is gonna be good at sports!

*Jack is still sweet Jack. He has become really good at playing some computer games. He always asks over breakfast "when Brady takes a nap, can i play games on the computer?" Oh maaaan he's going to be hard to reign in.

*Brady is a terror! His birthday is Saturday (7th) and he will be 2. Sundays are the hardest. This Sunday he screamed "DRINK, DRINK, DRINK..." all the way out of the chapel. And all we packed in the diaper bag is markers. Perfect. We will have a small family birthday party on Saturday and his ideal party would be at the candy isle of the dollar store and a bike ride (he thinks he is big enough to ride Cams bike-and begs to everyday).

*Many of you heard, Boone passed away. He was just plain tired. He was a good dog and Mitch and i have been remembering some of the good times with Boone and trying to forget all the annoying. Thanks to mom and dad for putting him up for the last 8 months and giving him a couch to sleep on.

*Mitch is busy with Elders Quorum. He is planning a activity coming up: a ward mechanics workshop. They'll have all the guys come with things to fix on their cars and they all learn. The men are excited to "talk shop".

*I'm busy with YW. I'm in charge of getting our girls to CAMP and the registrations and i just completed that last night. And this weekend I'm chairing the ward Girls Camp dessert auction. We feed authentic Mexican food for donations and then girls bring desserts to auction off. I guess it does really well for covering their costs to camp and it should be a fun time. Just getting to the end and stressing about a few things.

*We fasted for the opportunity to live in this lady's house "house sitting" while she is in Seattle, and she called this morning and wants to meet us and show us the house. So we are being blessed big time! It will be such a great deal for us, and its BIG, and out in the trees (country) so the boys will have a blast running all over.

love you all.

My baby is 8

Holy Cow, I'm getting old.
My firstborn is 8 today. He is such a good boy, and I'm so proud of the kiddo he is becoming. Just a few pictures to help me remember what a good baby he was too. Cam is athletic, has the body of a wiry gymnast and was named after Camden Yards (baseball park in Baltimore). He loves the outdoors, he knows just about every species of bird and loves to shoot his BB gun he got for Christmas. He is very kind and makes friends easily. He is my red-haired boy and looks exactly like my cousin Kyle. Cam will be baptized in Hermiston on Feb 19th at 11am. Mitch and I are super proud of him and are thankful he chose to be in our family. We love you Cam.

I hate:

Judge shows on TV.


In Spokane area Judge Judy is on at 4pm, that's when I'm in the mood for Ellen. I've missed watching her dance (its like a train wreck, I can't look away!)

Girls Night Out

When I went home for Christmas vacation, the girls planned Natalie and I our birthday dinner. We ate at 9 Degrees, a new (Delish) burger joint. It was sooo good and we had a blast. This is our birthday tee-shirt that is passed around each time one of us celebrates another year. Natalie's turn. I'm so thankful for great friends who take time to spend with me, and are so thoughtful!
(enjoy those pictures, Nat)


I'm not a writer- those of you who read this blog know that. Last year was a challenge to say the least, and I didn't really sit down and set some goals, however I did learn some valuable lessons. So for this January I'm writing some lists, resoulutions, and goals. I'm going to document my progress (in my journal) and try to grow spiritually, as a mother, friend, servant of the gospel, and wife. I hope at the end of this year I will feel more like I accomplished some things, while treading water and staying afloat. Maybe if I write it down I'll feel more accountable.
