"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.
I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

I thought this was hilarious!

Sorry to anyone who recieved this as an email and are reading it twice!

A woman and a baby were in the doctor's examining room,waiting for the doctor to come in for the baby's first exam.The doctor arrived, and examined the baby,checked his weight, and being a little concerned,asked if the baby was breast-fed or bottle-fed."Breast-fed," she replied."Well, strip down to your waist," the doctor ordered.She did. He pinched her nipples, pressed, kneaded, andrubbed both breasts for a while in a very professionaland detailed examination.Motioning to her to get dressed, the doctor said,"No wonder this baby is underweight.You don't have any milk."I know," she said,"I'm his Grandma,but I'm glad I came."

I decided to go Brown!

So thank you to all who voted. Most people wanted me to stay blonde but I needed a change. I can't afford to keep having my roots dyed so I decided to get as close to my natural color as possible. Sorry for the bad picture. I will try to take a better one with better coloring.

So frustrated!

Hollie was doing so good with potty training that I thought she was good to go. Yeah no more diapers. NOOOOOOO!!!!! for the last week and a half she screams every morning when she wakes up and I take her pull up off to put underwear on. She will not wear them. If I do get them on then she screams to have a iaper put on so she can pee. It's driving me CRAZY!!! I know it's half my fault cause I give in and give her what she wants so that she will be happy. But her next birthday she will be 4, doing pre-school soon, she's not in nursery any more and in sunbeams. HELP!!!! anyone got any advice!

Coloring easter eggs!

I'm glad my mom decided to color Easter eggs with the kids. I wasn't going to do it cause I didn't want to deal with the mess! I'm mean I know! But Hollie really enjoyed it and can't wait to have them in her basket. Trevor just enjoyed peeling the eggs.

Fun at Gramma Cherie's house

Playing out side on a day that my mom had the kids!

Best spent $35.00

I'm always driving by garage sales looking for stuff that the kids can play with outside. They love to be out there and we have a little yard. Last week I drove by this house that had this play house along with some appliances in their front yard. The play house was so dirty it looked like they were throwing it away. I drove by at least 6 times trying to get the courage to ask if they were getting rid of it. Finally I was with my mother in law and we drove by and still didn't have the courage so she offered to do it. The lady said that is was her daughters and that she would call me later that night. Well I never got a cal and was sad that it didn't work out. The next day I DID get a cal and she said she would sell it to me for 35.00. I said I'll take it. The kids love it and I have to drag them in the house. They stay out there for a long time. I see these in the paper all the time for 50.00 and of course brand new they are over 100.00. So I figure I got a good deal. I sprayed it down and it's good as new. Lance just didn't have to put it together.


Trevor is finally 18 months and can go to the nursery. I have been waiting for this day. Hollie is still a cling on to me at church and will not stay in her class by herself. But Trevor ran in there and didn't look back. He did so good. This is his first picture!
Hollie is now in Sunbeams and I went to primary today! It was a little different enviroment than the nursery and I actually loved to sit in sharing time and sing songs. A couple I didn't know but Hollie got to pick to sing the popcorn song. Hopefully she gets used to primary and will stay so I can have a couple hours ALONE!

New Phone!

Last week I got some good news that I was getting a new phone. I was getting a bonus at work for a huge job i did and was needing a phone REAL bad. Thanks Ron and Joanie. Having it flip like a keyboard makes it so much easier to text. Now I just need to figure out how to put some cool ring tones on it.

Where's Waldo?

Hollie's favorite books are Where's Waldo. These are from back when i was little. She know's where Wlado is on every page. Can YOU find Waldo

Hollie's first hair cut

The other night we got chinese food for dinner. Hollie was dipping won tons in sweet and sour sauce. Next thing I knew she was telling me, "Mommy I got sause in my hair!" Her hair is so long that i just figured the end of her pony tail got in it. NOOOOO!!!! it was all on the back of her neck and up in her hair on the back of her head. How does that happen? So we finished dinner and went up to take a bath. When she got out I told her that we were going to have a hair cut. She started freaking out! She hates to have her hair washed or brushed and she knows when I put her up in the bathroom sink thats whats gonna happen. I told her it wouldn't hurt and to be very still. She did really good. I've been wanting to cut her bangs for a long time cause they are always in her face. I think she looks really cute. It totally changes her look and took a lot of staring at her to get used to it. This morning she told me that she didn't want her hair cut anymore. OOOOPS! I ended up cutting off 13 inches. Only her bangs. Non of the back.

Trevor just started the "getting his feelings hurt" thing. For most part when i tell him no he puckers his lip and gets a really sad face and throws him to the floor or puts his head down on his hands. it is the cutest thing and i know it's bad of me but sometimes i try to make him do it. He is such a sweet little boy!.
