Intro to body flex

Click on the bottom body flex frame (it's safe) to the right of this entry... it is a workout that this lady created, her theory is that if you flex your whole body including your whole face while you get all the air out of your lungs it will be more effective...

Get ready to laugh!

The other frames are spoofs off of the original I'm actually afraid to see what they are because they are probably inappropriate.

Ryan's birthday

We celebrated Ryan's birthday at Samantha's the Sunday after his birthday... We had cake and ice cream but we all forgot candle's so Jay decided that Ryan couldn't go without candle's on his cake so he rolled up some paper and lit it. Afterward I looked up and they were sharing a little brotherly bonding time "smoking". For those in our ward that are reading this, you don't need to tell the bishop on him cuz he' not really smoking just in case you were wondering. So now he's joined the 27 yr club.

Why is it that every time I verbally say what I'm thankful for, the opposite happens......?


Pres. James E. Faust said "Into every life there come the painful, despairing days of adversity and buffeting. Becoming New Creatures A rebirth out of spiritual adversity causes us to become new creatures.

In my attempt to "become a new creature" I've been challenged with some adversity as we all are...

The other day I mentioned how grateful I am for our financial blessings one including our cashback reward from our insurance that we will get in 2 weeks, its a reward because we have had a clean driving record since we got married (3 yrs.)

A week ago I got pulled over right by our house and explained to the cop that I have a clean record and always go the speed limit ( I really do try to go the speed limit because I really want that cashback reward, oh and I want to obey the law too.) I explained a few other things to him that for sure would help him to be more merciful so I thought phew... that was a close one. But no, he came back and GAVE ME A TICKET! ewwwwww I was so mad. He was one of those cops that had to get his quota in for the day and wanted a little extra power and authority. As for our cashback reward I'll have to look into traffic school to keep it off my record but seriously what a waste of time and money.

Adversity #2

2 days after the ticket incident was Ryan's birthday and we went to Tucano's for dinner, later we had friends over for dessert and to watch the office. At about 11:00 we peacefully went to bed but at 1:00 the volcano errupted, I made myself comfortable on the bathroom floor till about 5:30 , around 3:00 Ryan came to join me..... we got the FLU! I forgot how awful the flu is, the last time I had it was in Jr. high or something. Ryan the next morning thought he would brave going to school and teaching, about 1 hour later he came hobbling in the door. Anyway poor Kate got to climb over mommy and daddy while watching tv all day cuz we spent the whole day on the floor.

If you look at the previous entry below this one, you'll see how much I love to be sick...


I guess Heavenly Father had got to mold us into becoming new creatures somehow right?
If it doesn't kill you it'll make you stronger.

I have to say one thing that I am truly grateful for, Health. I know that might sound cliche but I really mean it.

When any one of us gets sick I become the grump. As a mom if you get sick you have to pretend like you are not and carry on with keeping the rest of the kingdom in tact. If Ryan gets sick I just feel awful and I can't do much but I try to "make everything all better".

We've been real lucky for this first year of Kate's life that she has only suffered minor colds but just yesterday we were driving in the car to go pick up Ryan and Kate had been so whiny all day and I was getting frustrated and then I looked in the rear view mirror and she threw everything she had eaten that day up. I felt horrible for being irritated. So the rest of the day she threw up a few more times but she slept ok, and today she is just like a noodle, so cuddly (I love that part) but I just feel so bad for her.

So to make a long story short I am thankful for our health.

Anything with straps

My favorite toy lately is to find something with straps, a purse a swimsuit or especially mom's bras and I wrap up in them and walk around the house till someone untangles me. Fun huh?

Hogle Zoo

Mom and me at the Zoo.

Rubber ducky you're the one....

Yes, for Halloween we were the Sesame Street enterage. For Halloween we have a few traditions,

1. We always go see thriller at kingsbury hall.
2. Since Ryan teaches 3rd grade we do the school parade. That is where we are here.
3. I guess a new tradition for us would be trick-or-treating. (not new for the rest of the world.)

This year we saw thriller with Sam and Ginny, and Katie and Uillame. It was fun to get out on a date and feel hip and cool.

On Halloween we went trick-or-treating with Jay and Jen and their kids, it was fun for the first hour but by 2 1/2 we started slowing down. So Ryan, Kate and I decided to walk back to their house, with their directions we thought we would make it back ok but I guess we missed a step and became lost. So we were standing on a random street in Spanish Fork dressed in our costumes scratching our heads trying to figure out where to go. We eventually called Ryans mom in New Mexico to get the exact address and went from there. After cutting through many peoples back yards we made it back to their house. Kate did great, she was just happy to be outside.
