"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."

Fun photo shoot

While I was in Utah My good friend Wendi (since we were 2) did a photo shoot with me. Mostly for Lance. She is a photographer to fitness models and does an awesome job. We were right in her livingroom. I think they turned out pretty good. It was a lot of fun. Kinda reminded me of those Glamour shots they used to do. Thanks Wendi. Had a blast.

Snowy Utah

Jen and I

My cold feet in the snow. Cute Carson

There was a lot of snow on the mountains. I was really hoping for a snow storm but wasn't so lucky.

I wanted to go sledding real bad but all the snow was icy and with my luck I would scrape my face off or break a bone. Maybe next time.

Michele's wedding

Friday night Michele, Jen, Molly and I went to dinner at Olive Garden. It was like old times when Molly would come spend summers (in California) with me and we would hang out. It was fun reminising.

Here is the beautiful bride and Jen and I.

We had a fun night. Conrats Michele and Bruce!

My brother went to Argentina on his mission since playing soccer all my life and being a huge fan the one thing I wanted him to bring home was soccer jerseys. For a while it's all hollie wanted to wear now it's moved on to Trevor. For a couple of days he wanted his soccer shorts. He even found my cleats and would wear those too. I HOPE to have little soccer players soon.

eat your vegetables

Trevor is kind of a picky eater. the other day we went to a birthday party and Trevor kept going to the food table. He was only eating the carrots off the vegetable platter. i think he ate them all. Them I saw him trying broccoli which he didn't like. But he LOVES carrots. everytime we go to the grocery store all he wants is carrots.

It was a.....



The other day we had a little play date with Ramey and Ariaya Bonilla. The kids were being really quiet and this is what we found. They had grabbed to cake that was just mad off of the stove (turned off of course) and were all eating it with their hands. Good thing the cake was made for the playdate.

FIRST time ever in the snow!

On the way back from the dinosaurs there was so much snow on the mountains and it was so far down the mountain that we decided to drive off the freeway. Maybe 10 minutes later we found this.

We ended up at Rylies Farm. The kids have never seen the snow before and they loved it. We were really cold and totally not prepared but it was fun.
My feet weren't even cold!


The other day my mom and I and Hollie and Trevor met my aunt and two cousins out at cabazon to have lunch for my moms b-day. After, we decided to take the kids to see the dinosaurs. The kids loved it. It was their first time.


Chris is all grown up! He plays on the Citris Hill High School soccer team and it's so fun to watch his games. Brings back so many memories of playing high school soccer and all the fun times. I can't wait until Hollie and Trevor can play soccer. I gotta start working out now so I can keep up with them on the field.

Fork anyone

Trevor has been acting like a dog alot latley. He likes to crawl around and bark and breath hard and eat cake with out a fork. he's a silly boy and makes me laugh all the time.

My sweet little girl

Most of the time she is sweet but boy does she have a temper. She just started saying, "Your not my mom anymore, or I don't like you, or I'm so mad. The only one i can confess to saying my self is I'm so mad. I'm not sure where she heard the other ones. It drives me crazy. Anyone have suggestions on how to stop this habit?
