Kids, kids, everywhere!!!!!

What a crazy week. Not bad crazy though so its was ok! I had a total of 11 kids at my house this week. Some I had for several days in a row but I didn't have all of them at the same time. And the great thing is that I still got a few things done. I am really feeling the cleaning out and throwing away bug and hope it sticks around a while. I think knowing that we will be moving sometime in the next year or so (anywhere between 8 months to 24 months) makes me want to start now. especially because I am hoping to be having a baby sometime in there too. I just don't want to be stuck trying to go though everything by myself feeling tired and sick and having to get it done right now. I mean really we could get the call to go to Academy in 30 days and we will be moving to who knows where so I will want to put the house on the market as soon as he leaves and I want it to be already done and ready! SO I am getting the bug and trying to get things sorted through and organized. But with lots of kids here it makes it kind of hard. So really this week I didn't expect to get anything done and I did so yeah for me!

Well Jason's tests start this week. He has an Interview with three agents on Monday that is supposed to take 4 hours and then Tuesday he has his Fitness test and medical exam. We sent back to missing information from the background stuff so I hope they get started on that soon. This really is a very exciting time for us.

OK so I had to say goodbye to a good friend this week. They are in the border patrol and he is graduating from the academy and is assigned to Las Cruses New Mexico. I am excited for them but sad that they will be gone. Really who knows maybe we will get sent there too. Well, we went out to dinner on Wednesday (me, Kirsten(the moving one) and Emily. We were all in the same ward before this one and our families hung out together. We were the curly girls. Anyway we went to dinner at Austins and it was so yummy and fun to just sit and chat(no kidos). We stayed until they closed and then went to Emily's house and just visited and reminisced about old times and how much we have grown and learned in the 6 years we have been friends. We ended up staying up talking until about 2:15am! crazy but true! I will really miss her and her cute little family but I am so happy for them. Best of Luck Kirsten!

Well I have no profound thoughts for you this week! I love my life and the joy that is mine because of the blessing my Father in Heaven gives to me! I love my Husband! He is the most wonderful man in my life! I am so lucky to have him! My little man is getting cuter and cuter! I know you all will agree! He is the cutest little boy with a fun, happy personality!

I want a Wii!

Ok so this weekend has been very fun. Friday I went to the movies with two of my sisters and our kids. We saw Madagascar 2 and had a great time. That night we went to a friends house for dinner. Oh my gosh!!! There were four couples there and no kids! We had a very yummy dinner of grilled steak, chicken and veggie kabobs with twice baked potatoes and Cobb salad. Then we played Wii for the next few hours. I have not laughed so hard in such a long time. It is so fun having really good friends that I know I can call for anything. I have never done this kind of thing before but I am so glad that I decided not to let being busy get in the way of making really good friends. I will be very sad to leave them but hope that we can and will stay friends for a very long time.

I am really hoping that maybe we can get a Wii for Christmas this year. It was very fun and I would love to have one in my home. I know Tolson couldn't really do much with it yet but he could try and I could play! We will see what happens!

this week I am thankful for...

1. Good Friends!
2. Yummy Food!
3. Laughing so hard you can't breath!
4. A wonderful husband!
5. Possibilities!

I hope you all do something every once in a while that makes you laugh! It is very good for your health and is fun too!

Fun weekend

OK so I am not sure how long I will last here today but I feel I have been neglecting this lately so I am here to attempt. I pinched a nerve in my back this morning so I am sitting here trying not to take deep breaths and move as little as possible. I have been laying down all day so I am ready to be up for a little bit.

This weekend was fun. We got Jason's papers sent in to the Border patrol so now we wait again. It has been three months already and we are really just still starting so I am sure it will be a while. I am getting kind of excited about all the possible changes that may be coming. WE don't know where we will be assigned for the first year, we don't know when we will be going north or where. we don't know if and when we will need to sell our house and a lot of other stuff in between. so our life is very up in the air right now but I feel really good about it. I am sure as time goes on I will get a lot more inpatient. so anyway we got the paperwork off on Saturday ($17 for copies and $20 for sending it later) now we wait. BUT when we got home on Saturday night and checked the mail there was a letter saying that he is scheduled for a oral board interview on Monday the 27th. so that is very exciting. He will do the interview then they schedule him for the physical and medical exams and then we wait for the background to go through and then we are in. Its scary to think that when he goes to the academy I will be alone for almost 6 months. I know I can't complain and I shouldn't but that is a long time. I know some of you military mothers out there are saying 'yeah right, that's nothing" but I am sure I am going to have a hard time of it. I am tough though so I will survive!

Well this week I am so grateful for ...

1. A husband that is willing to carry me and wait on me when I am hurt
2. A son that loves his mom and dad ans tells us all the time
3. Usually having a healthy strong body
4. Progress toward our future
5. Friends with a pool that let us come over!!!

Have a great week and don't sneeze when your back is twisted

Playing in the Rain!

We went out and played in the pouring rain yesterday. Tolson had the time of his life. Our roof rain runs off right into our new grass and makes huge puddles right off the porch. He had a great time splashing and kicking in the water. I love seeing him learn and exploring the world we live in. He is such a delight. I hope that you all let your kids go play in the rain every once in a while.

Baby Hungry!

Ok SO we went to Safford this weekend and visited some cousins. We stayed with Adam and Amanda and their family which consists of two adorable little girls and a brand new baby boy. He is two weeks old and sooo cute. It really made me baby hungry. Another cousin came over to hang out for a bit and they have a 2 month old baby. Brand new babies are so cute. It really got me thinking about how old Tolson is getting and how old I am getting and that if I want many more kids I should get going. I was a little afraid that I would be sad when I saw the babies because I was due on the same day as Amanda. Its weird now to think that I might have a brand new baby right now but It did not make me sad. I was just happy for them. I know that my time will come again! anyway I love new little babies.
