Is This Normal?


I guess God made me tolerable of things many girls/women aren't. Either it was God, or my 3 older brothers. Ha ha. Here are a list of things that I encounter daily. Tell me all of you with little you encounter these things also?

1-Weird things frozen in ice in cups in my freezer? Like; bugs, action figurines, worms, coins, pine name it.

2-Rocks, sticks, and acorns in the washing machine, or if they don't come out of the pockets then, in the dryer? You would think I would learn to check pockets every time. But, it seems most the time I am throwing a load in in a rush. I guess the girl alternative could be worse...melted lip smackers.

3-Hey Mom look! And right in your face when you turn to look is a nice long worm they are so proud of finding (that just happened as I am writing this), or a grasshopper in each hand held by a leg for a "grasshopper fight". A little inhumane if you ask me. The best was when we were at Grandma's house. I was up stairs and I heard a little knock at the side door. Grandma answered the door, then I hear her scream and scream, "it's a bird, it's a bird!" and Ty starts crying. He innocently was showing her the dead bird he just found. It was recently killed because it was limp and not stiff. I am glad he got to Grandma before me.

Go Cougars!

September 12th, 2008

Dave and I had a nice little weekend with each other. We left Friday afternoon for Park City. We had a nice dinner at a Thai restaurant. I have been told that mango sticky rice is such a yummy dessert, but am always too full to try it. I was set to have some here, but once again, too full. I have decided we will have to go sometime just for dessert. We enjoyed our jetted tub in our hotel room, and just relaxing.

The following day we headed to Provo for the BYU vs. UCLA game. We are big fans of college football, especially BYU. We love, love, love going to the games! We were getting some funny looks with all our BYU get-up. What can I say...we are die hard!
This game made the weekend even better because they killed UCLA. That makes for a very happy Dave.

Max's First Day of 2nd Grade!

August 18th, 2008

School started so early this year. It made summer end so abruptly, but it is always nice to get back into the more structured schedule of the school year.

Max is starting at a new school this year. The same one that his Dad went to many years ago. He lucked out with a wonderful teacher that some of his uncles had; Mrs. Sampson. I thought this would be hard for Max, but he didn't seem to care. He was a little panicked when he went to the wrong door, but the principal was right there to assist him and gave me the thumbs up, and he was on his way.

Drake's Big Day!

August 10th, 2008

Our little baby turns 1! Where has time gone?

Max and Ty had a great idea to have the bakery make Drake a snake cake. Happy Birthday "Drake Le Snake!" Drake had a great time diving into his cake with no reserves. We love our Drake!


August , 2008

Drake hit his eye on the corner of our entertainment center. Dad was at work, but on his way home. I handled the blood just fine. I surprised myself. He was a trooper. He is all stitched up, and on his way to recovery. Just in time for his 1 year pictures.

Ty Turns 4!

July 14th, 2008

Today was Ty's day. We did a lot of fun things. This afternoon he and I went on a date to the Dinosaur Museum, and then to JCW's for dinner. He drank root beer to his heart's content.

After dinner we went and picked up Granny to help us celebrate. She was the only one of all of our family around. Everyone else was in Europe. They called Ty earlier in the day and sang him happy birthday. Thank you Grandma, Grandpa, cousins, aunts, and uncles. That was so sweet. It brought tears to my eyes.

The Higbee's (Lori and Bryce; Vienna, Kael, Saxson, and Cash) came and helped celebrate too. Thank guys! we had a blast, and Ty went to bed exhauted. A sign of a great day!
