an oldie but goodie!

I used to love watching Gilligan's Island when I was little and now my kids are totally into it! The 2nd season was on sale at walmart for $13.00 dollars, so Abbey used some birthday money to buy it. I got a kick out of telling the the girls exactly how old this show really is-the first episode of season 2 came out 10 years BEFORE their daddy was born!
It is so funny to hear them giggle while watching. They really don't make them like they used to...

new tag...

I was tagged...and it's a very different tag. With this tag, you are supposed to take pictures of the following things just they way there are right now, no cheating. So I did. Here it goes.

The Toilet

I chose my bathroom cause the kids is a pig sty right now.

The Kitchen Sink

Breakfast dishes plus the dishes that didn't fit in last night's load.

The Fridge

I'm not an organized person.

The Laundry Room

Garage access in here so it has became like a catch all place.

My Favorite Room

Family room-must be everybody's favorite room with how messy it is.

My favorite Shoes

Nice and comfy and they slip right on.

And the kids.

Jacob is addicted to the wii.

Quincy practicing piano and Owen playing with my exercise ball.
Abbey reading.

My Closet

I originally forgot this one-probably cause it's a disaster area in there.

***I tag Janna, Ashley, Shellie (welcome to the blogging world), Jennie and Diane!***

I read a book...3 actually and I NEVER read! I can't believe it but I am now officially on the Twilight bandwagon!

I've heard for over a year now that these books are so good and I thought no way I will ever read a book about vampires. Well, we put a recliner in our bedroom and I sat in it one day and thought that that would be a nice place to read a book, so I decided to read twilight to see what the fuss was about. I am so addicted now and can't believe I am going to have to wait till August for the last book to be released. I absolutely love this series.

Oh, and I can't wait till december for the movie...

Birthday Boys!!

Today is my both of my boy's birthdays. Jacob was born on Owen's 2nd birthday. I wasn't due till the 29th and was scheduled to be induced on the 27th to try and spread out their birthdays as far as possible (with me getting that baby out as soon as possible-that last month always seems unbearable). I remember thinking that the 23rd was the last day to avoid (June is a busy month with our anniversary etc.) and wasn't worried at all that I would actually go in to labor that early. Well around 4:00 in the morning I woke up with contractions and was like oh crap, not today! I kept hoping they would just go away (that has never happened with me, when I start contractions they don't stop until the job is done). I waited about an hour before I woke up Peter and told him and then I got up wrap all of Owen's presents and frosted his birthday cake. I wanted everything to be ready for Owen's birthday so it wouldn't be forgotten. We took the kids to his brother's house around 6:30 am and headed to the hospital and delivered around 11:30 am. It was so crazy. We ended up having Owen's birthday party in the hospital in the afternoon where he got a additional present, his little brother. They have really turned out to be such good buddies, let's just hope it stays that way...


I wanted the boys to be able to play with their presents today, so we let them open them up last night instead of waiting till Peter got home from work today. They were so excited to get new toys and stayed up late last night playing with them.

Abbey's Baptism

Abbey was baptized this morning. She did so good and so did Peter. Not only did he have to baptize her, but our ward just happened to be the host ward this month and Peter had to give the talk on the Holy Ghost (cause he is Abbey's Primary teacher) in his cool white jumpsuit! Everything turned out very well.

Walking in to the church.

In the lovely jumpsuits!

Our family afterwards.

We are so proud of you Abbey for the decision you made!

Abbey's Birthday

Happy Birthday Abbey!!

Today Abbey turned 8 years old! For her birthday she really wanted a video camera. So we got her one of those little handheld camcorder that takes videos and still pictures and saves it to a SD card. The memory card we bought for her hasn't come yet, so I took the card out of my camera and am letting her use it. Which means the only pictures I got today were on my phone, so they are not on my computer yet. Anyway...she has had a fun filled day. Her 2 (girl) cousins and grandma and grandpa came into town last night and are staying till after she gets baptized on the 21st. They have been having so much fun already with swimming and later we will be having cake and ice cream. I will have to post some pictures later.

Grandma Sycamore's bakery?

Does anyone know where the grandma sycamore's bakery is? Last I heard it used to be in Mesa on McKellips but has moved...I just don't know where to. This is the best bread ever and for some reason the grocery stores like to charge 4 dollars a loaf and it never goes on sale! I need to go to the grandma sycamore store and stock up!
