Around here...

Why is thinking of the title the hardest thing for me???  Not sure....


I only have 29 days until VACATION, I'm excited, anxious and nervous. We are driving, all 1,236 miles from here to Dallas Texas, but its worth it.  We will leave at 5am on March 28th and drive 14-16 hours, then a short drive the next day. I'm nervous to see how my kids do, but excited for my Grandpa to spend 6 days loving his great grandkids.

I have so many things to do to prepare for our trip, including buyng luggage, spring clothes (80 degree weather...YES!!!)and odds & ends.

Next thing....We found out Jax has a thyroid problem, he has Hyperthyroidism.  We find out tomorrow how he'll be treated, medicine for life, radiation or removal of the thyroid.  I'm kind of scared, but this could be the answer to a lot of our questions.

Jaxon also finished basketball and THIS MOM forgot her camera,  I feel horrible.  But I'm proud of him.

Thats what is going on AROUND HERE...

I'm ready for flip flop and shorts weather, I'm ready to only have to worry about what swimsuit all my kids will wear on the weekends, I'm ready for barbecuing and the smell of campfire, I'm ready for a sunburn and tan skin.

I'M ready for SUMMER...


I would be happy with SPRING.

Today is Jaxon's last basketball game and he is sad, but I'm kind of excited.  I'm ready to have my Wednesdays back and not get home late.  But I am sad that games are over, I have enjoyed every single minute of his games.

He will definately play again next year.

I've been doing crafts AGAIN...

This one and the above SPRING letters, plus some Easter stuff.

And this little girl has really shown me what the terrible twos are all about, I hope three treats us better...LOL

Hope you're having a great weekend.

Our first trip of the year....

To our favorite place....ANTELOPE ISLAND

We love it here and so do our kids.  The weather was perfect today, we on a hike and climb around rocks.

It was perfect light coat weather and there was a very light breeze.  Nothing big at all.

My kids pose for a million pictures.  "Mom, take my picture here!!"

We took Daisy with us and she loved every single bit of it.

We ran into this little fellow hiding in the sage brush and then jumped onto this rock to pose for a picture...LOL

We really have tons of fun, it takes about an hour to do our hike that we do and its tons of rocks.  Lex made it far with us.  Normally someone has to stay back with her.

Then we drive to this dirt road and out of Antelope Island, its so much fun, we all laugh and bring back old memories. 

I think we'll go back next weekend if its nice.

Happy LOVE Day

I've honestly never been a BIG Valentine's person.  I think everyday should be LOVE day minus my Husband spending massive amounts of money on flowers, I will be okay with that.  Ashton said to me on the phone today, "Mom, Valentine's means you get lots of hugs, so I have a BIG hug for you later today!"  I'm still waiting....LOL

My Husband went all out, in the 9 years we have been together, there is only one other time he has gotten me flowers and that was the first year we dated. 

BUT.....he actually sent flowers to me at work today...

He did good, I'm pretty shocked.  They came with a cute teddy bear and a box of chocolates.

And his card, its Bob.  I love it.  Love..........................ME

I've never doubted that he didn't love me.  I have an amazing MAN.  He supports me in everything I do.  I can't imagine life without him.  We aren't perfect, but we have grown so much!!!

Happy Valentine's Day!!!
