My personal, favorite story of the year so far...

I have been meaning to post this, so you can all have a good laugh.
To start off, a couple months ago, the text message alert on my cell phone was a cat call whistle ( I meant to be funny when i downloaded it).Ok so, I had my annual ob/gyn appointment one day... I got prepared for my 'exam,' (sorry to get a little graphic here,) the doctor was at the point of the "manual part," ya know, and I get a text message >sounds of whistling<... AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! He looked at me said, " what was that?" I then had to explain that it was my phone, and not me whistling...From there, an entire staff at that office was histarically laughing! He came back with my papers and said to me, "I think the most concern is your ovaries are making noises." Then he told me I needed to enter that story into a magazine.So, anyone that goes to Pride OB/GYN, and sees Dr. Ken Jones, ask him about the girl whose ovaries whistled at him during a pelvic exam.

She got skillz

Saylor's Halloween painting she made at school. She is such a great artist!

It's finished!!!

While in Vegas last weekend and putting this costume together, my mom's sewing machine broke!! HOWEVER, she worked her magic, and sent me a picture of the "final product." Saylor has yet to see it, but she is going to D-I-E!! I have a feeling that this will not just be a will be dressup/church dress/winterwear/big argument! Hee hee

She's Crafty!

Miss Fabulous had her mind SET on her Halloween costume of a pirate chick, until one day while at Costco we were browsing and found dalmation costumes for soon as that moment happened, she had a plan: We buy these costumes for the twins, and she gets to be one of her favorite Disney characters, Cruella Deville. I thought it was a fantastic idea, until I started looking for costumes. None, except in adult sizes...nothing on the I am, stuck.... I started looking at the McCalls website to see if I could make it for her, and so the story goes...the project has begun! I am hoping for some kind of award here ... This better turn out to be a smashing costume!! And just to add, making costumes is way more expensive than buying one! To date, I have spend over $60, and still am out red gloves and red heels...sheez! Like I said, I better get an award for this (my mom is doing the sewing, so she will get the credit)! The final product will be displayed on Halloween...dun, dun, dunnnnn.

Makenzie Grace

Aw, our little Mazzie!! Sweetest, smartest cookie on the planet!! Although both Mazzie and Jax are learning lots of new words, this girl can sign alot of things!! She knows alot of the basics of baby sign language, such as, Mom, Dad, milk, thirsty, drink, eat, hurt. She also can sign cat, dog, fish, shoes, socks, just to name a few more. Jaxon does well with sign language too, but not as well and as frequent as Makenzie. They both say and sign, so I am hoping they become little geniuses (doesn't every mom hope for that!!).
Makenzie will spend hours putting on shoes, and walking around the house. We have random shoes all over the place. We have broke down to buy dress up shoes, but she wants regular shoes. If she is throwing a tantrum, all I have to say is, "Wanna put shoes on?" And as soon as they are on her little painted toes, she is in the kitchen or entry way to prance around and stomp. It is so cute. We recently went to Henderson to visit my mom and went to the Vans store, where both her and Jax got their first pair of old school Vans, and she absolutely LOVES them!!!

Action Jaxon

We have so much fun with this little guy. He is full of CONSTANT energy, and loves to work his mind. He will draw on his Magna Doodle for hours, we take it everywhere we go, he loves to color! Jaxon loves to see how things work, he does have engineering in his blood. He is still little, but though his height might be small, he is a TANK! We call him our garbage disposal!

Jaxon is our screamer!! He wants everything HIS way, or else we hear an ear piercing noise! One of the many reasons we dont do normal everyday things like, take the kids to the grocery store!!! Josh says he will NEVER make me go anywhere with the both of them, cause sometimes I end up leaving in tears! I have a feeling we may be entering into the "terrible twos," and I can say now, I will probably be one stressed out Mama! So, in advance, I apologize if my kids scream at the top of their lungs at the same time while in line somewhere or something...I don't need dirty looks ;-)

ALOT of updates since posting last!

So, we have been back in Utah for almost a few months now, and since our monitor broke, we replaced it, but then needed a wireless modem, hence the reason for me only being able to access internet from my phone. A few things have gone on since August, so here you have it.

I broke my ankle (yes, for the 3rd time now), and I refuse to disclose how ;-). Anyhow, about a week into my "wicked witch" cast being on, the tightness never loosened up on me, and was cutting off circulation, so the doctor but a wedge in my cast...didn't work. It was removed, and I got a boot, which made things worse. So, I am walking most of the time without anything, in a lot of pain, and not able to exercise much until another doctor I am going to says it is ok.

A week after I broke my ankle, Josh got in a very scary accident on the freeway. He was sandwiched between two vehicles, and rushed to the ER by ambulance. He had some bruising on his brain, slight memory loss, and double whiplash, but he is doing alot better. He has rehab two to three times per week, and yes, we have hired a great attorney.

I am so thankful that Josh was not injured more. He had some dangerous work equipment in the bed of his truck, one of them being a 3 foot long pin (that gets staked into the ground), that went through his back window and landed at his feet. Not only that, but he was on a two-lane freeway, and his truck spun into both lanes. If only a couple of the circumstances had not been so lucky, he probably wouldn't be here, or would have been critically injured at the very least. It has made our relationship even stronger, Heavenly Father must have known that his family really needed him! We feel very blessed that he is here and doing great.
