Thanks Santa, Just what I didn't want

So I guess you just have to expect the worse around christmas time. In the last week our dryer went out- merry christmas to me-yea, we just got a new on yesterday. my toaster broke- not a big deal,but still annoying, the satellite in our bedroom went out,then last night i come home from finishing christmas shopping- and there is water all over the floor from the dishwasher. yes it is still under warranty, but seriously- can i just get things to quite breaking! I really didn't want new appliances for christmas!check the list santa, none of those things were on it!

7 Year Anniversary

Tomorrow is mine and Justin's seven year anniversary! I can't believe we have been married that long, it has gone by so fast. So for our seven years i think i will write seven things about my wonderful husband Justin
1- I love how justin still tries to make me laugh every day, even though I usually just get mad at him when he does.
2- He always knows how to change my mood around, which usually involves finding some chocolate to give to me.
3- Justin has a very tender heart and he knows how to make people feel special, I love that about him.
4- He is the best dad i could have ever asked for. The kids adore him and i know that he loves them. He works hard to give us everything our family needs.
5- He is also a wonderful husband, he still makes me feel like i am his princess.
6- He helps me be a better person and helps me achieve my goals
7- I still think he is a hotty, and I love him more and more every day!
So happy anniversary honey! I hope i didn't embarrass you by telling everyone how great you are :)

Happy Birthday Kyler!!

Yesterday my little Kyler turned 1 year old. I can't believe my baby is a year! Early in the day the whole family came over and watched me play in a CEU alumni game. it was lots of fun, I am getting old though, the old body just doesn't move like it used to. I wasn't feeling too bad until Sydney came down to me and said "mommy, I saw you and you weren't going very fast" and that says it all, leave it up to a kid to tell you the truth! It was still fun though. Josh and ali came too and then they came over to the house for a little party for Kyler. He is such a cute little stinker. I think my favorite thing about Kyler is how easily it is to make him laugh. He kindof laughs like and old man who has smoked his whole life, but I think that it is so cute. He loves to see balls bouncing, well anything going up in the air, he likes throwing things just to see them drop, and he loves riding on the four wheeler with his dad. He loves to give kisses and he loves his sisters. He has been such a joy in our lives and has such a sweet loving little spirit. So happy birthday to my little man! We love him so much!

my new shop

well we finally made it! This feels so great that we have finally moved in. This has actually been like 2 years in the making, first we had to buy land, then build our house then build the garage, so it is so great to finally be in. The shop part isn't completely organized yet but we are getting closer. It has been a long week, me and justin have both been working until like 11:00 every night and we are exhausted. Bear and Justin basically moved every little thing themselves while I boxed and unboxed, and mom watched the kids. (I also managed to decorate for the ward party somewhere in between all the moving too.) It has already been so great though. I feel like my stress levels have gone from like a 10 to a 4 just by having the shop here. The girls have been loving it too. Sydney loves staying in her pj's for half the day and then her and madi just wander around the yard and play on my computer, and play in their room. So it has been worth it. I want justin to know how grateful I am that he did this for me.I feel like I can be a better mom and a wife. I am finally a stay at home mom, that actually stays at home and I am so thankful for that.

Every year me and my in-laws go shopping on black friday, but this year we decided to go all out. I woke up at 4:00 am and headed to walmart. It was crazy there. Mostly in electronics, but at one point i just had to ditch my shopping cart and hold my stuff because no one could get through. I just went in my pjs too, which made sense to me at 4:00 in the morning, but by time 11:00 rolled around I felt a little silly, but oh well. So after walmart me an Ali went to Kohl's and there was a line that wrapped around almost half the store to check out. the rest of the stores weren't too bad, but it was actually kind of fun. I think we shopped for a total of 10 hours, and I didn't even get punched or anything! I can't believe we were gone that long but I got a lot of my christmas shopping done! Thanks mom for watching my kids too!
