what we have been up to!

Here are some pictures of what we have been up to lately! Totally random and not really in order but that's how life goes right?

This is tolsons new favorite thing. He loves to do the dishes! He is actually pretty good at it now. It does use a lot more water then when I do them but hey I guess he is having fun learning how to clean! Can't argue with that!
Adalee's new talent is that she can pull herself up to standing and loves to do it. She is still learning how to sit back down without falling but hey its a work in progress!

She also loves to crawl into things. She is trying to get the plug/cord that is behind this little table.

She also loves to be under the coffee table. She will crawl all over under there and likes to do zerberts on the bottom shelf while lying on her belly! Funny girl!!!

Ok he looks really really skinny here but he is sucking it in ( I promise I do feed him). He was washing the car and showing me his muscles! what a hunk!!! Love this boy!

And yes we got snow at our house a few weeks ago! This is the view from our front yard of the park. You can't even see the mountains in the back because they were all white. So fun! Tolson said that it really was winter because it snowed! He keeps asking if it is going to snow again!

Adalee keeps making this smunchy face and I love it! most of the time she will have one eye closed more then the other so she looks like a pirate! She is so happy all the time and does a pretty good job of keeping up with her brother!

Two very sharp teeth!!!!
I love these cute kids and love being a mom! There really is nothing I would rather be doing then be home with my kids! I love them so much and am so blessed!

8 wonderful years!

OK so I don't have any pictures from our wedding on my computer so I guess this will have to do. 8 years ago today Jason and I were married in the Mesa Temple. The day before Jason was so sick and was not sure he was going to make it(to the wedding). I was a little worried but we got him up to mesa and hoped for the best. The next morning we went to the Temple, took pictures (best idea ever) and got married at noon. I don't remember a lot about that crazy day but I do remember the feelings I had as I knew I would be with this man I loved forever. We had a fun reception that night and danced and laughed like kids. Spent a wonderful week up in the snowy mountains and began our life together. Now 8 years and three kids later we are even more in love and still make each other laugh.
Thank you Jason for 8 amazing years. You really do make my life the wonderfulness that it is!

WARNING* I am venting!!! read at your own risk!

OK so lately I have been feeling in a funk. both physically and mentally. I am so done with the post pregnancy body of mine. I can't fit my clothes, I really don't like the way my body looks right now and don't get me started on the roll of bread dough I am carrying around on my middle. My skin is being funky (who sold us the lie that acne is only for the teenage years) I get headaches all the time and I am just tired. I try to exercise and feel like it is doing nothing for me. I just feel like some days I am sinking into this place where I am not happy! I do realize I am so blessed and should be so happy but really I just get grumpy and frustrated when I think about me. I feel stuck with my body I feel stuck with my life and I feel like I am not making any progress. I know I will be fine. I am just in a funk and I know this will pass too but oh how annoying it is to be in it. ugh! I just want to scream and cry and run and have a little pity party and then feel better but I know those things won't make me feel better. Not really sure what the solution is yet but I will keep looking.

I am sorry to vent but I guess I just needed to get this off my chest. Thanks for listening!
