I took Davin to his 1 year appointment and spoke with the Dr. about my situation. He told me I just need to put Davin in a crib and let him cry it out for a few nights. That made me feel terrible. However, I knew he was right. Plus I knew once Davin was out of my bed Hailey would go back to sleeping in her own bed as well. So this is what happened... we had an office. Not anymore. We put the computers in our room and turned the office in to Hailey and Davin's room. Last night was the first night. Oh my goodness!!! Hailey was great, she went right in and went to sleep, no problems. Davin on the other hand did not like it. He cried and cried and cried. I kept going in there every 15 minutes or so and loving him and telling him it's okay. I did nurse him a few times during the night, so I did pick him up like 3 times. I did not feel good about putting him in his own bed, his own room and taking away the comfort of nursing all in one night. I will stop night nursing when he is comfortable being in his own bed.
Now it is morning, and we all survived it. Davin is still sleeping, in his bed. Hailey is happy. And I'm happy to have my own room, free of kids. I'm sure the first night is the hardest. I can't wait for Davin to wake up so I can go in and cuddle him.
I know this sleeping arrangement will work for at least another year before I have to separate them in to their own rooms. I don't even want to think about that right now. :)
Happy New Year everybody!

She really was a happy Princess.
My pretty girls, Autumn & Erin
Davin was loving his new toy
The kids Christmas morning
Christmas Day was wonderful. I was so excited Christmas Eve I almost could not sleep. It was fun to watch Hailey and see how excited she was for Santa to come and then to see the joy in her eyes when she woke up and saw all the presents. It was great. It is fun to be a parent on Christmas morning. Matt got me a purse, which I absolutely LOVE. He always surprises me with his fashion sense. Once he picked out my shoes and women where stopping me and asking me where I got them and telling me how cute they were. When I told them my Husband picked them out, they said "Wow, he's got good taste".
So we went to Matt's sister's house for Christmas dinner and it was yummy of course. I love my extended Family. My in-laws are fabulous. We always celebrate Holidays and Birthdays together. My family never did anything like that. I feel so blessed to be a part of the Wyson family. Merry Christmas everyone and I pray you have a safe and happy New Years.

Today is Davin's 1st Birthday. Yay! It was nice. I got to have the kids home all day, and we all enjoyed the snow together. Later on My Mother-in-law came over to celebrate with some dinner and cupcakes and ice cream. I got him a cute little toy, and it only took all of 5 minutes of him playing with it to make me question what the heck I was thinking. It is SO noisy. But he really likes it, so I will just deal with it. For now at least.
Hailey always has a hard time at parties, she loves the treats that are associated with them, however she does not like being the one who does not get to blow out the candles or open the presents. I know that is just part of being a 3 year old.
I can't not believe it's been a year already (sniff sniff) It has gone by so fast. The older I get the faster time goes by.
I feel so blessed to have my family.
Well it happened...For the first time in a decade school was canceled because of the snow. The kids have been having a lot of fun in it. I drove around this morning and saw lots of snowmen. It was a fun sight to see. I used to live up in Ogden where it snowed a lot, now I'm here and we don't get it much. I like snow as long as it does not make it self at home here in Sunny St.George.

So I finally decided to cut my hair. I called and got an appointment right away so that I would not change my mind. I got 5 1/2 inches cut off. My hair feels so much lighter and more healthy. I also had them put some layers in it. I used to have layers years ago, and I really liked them. I can not remember why I stopped having them. I must of wanted something different then too.

I must say that I'm SO thankful that the election is over.Everyone in my family is talking about going out and stocking up on guns and ammo, and they are saying we have 2 months to make sure we have our 2 years food storage. C'mon, is it really that bad. Are we all going to self destruct the second he moves into the White House? I'm sure every Christian probably is thinking he is the Anti-Christ. I have heard it from everyone at home and on the internet. That is a very scary thought...for the unrighteous.
When Matt went to his Elders Quorum meeting last night he brought up his concerns to the Bishop. Our Bishop then said " I Promise, he is not the Anti-Christ", he also said that we have 30 to 80 years till the Anti-Christ comes. Also he said " Be ready for world peace",and that we do not have to worry about any of that yet, let our Grand kids worry about that. *sigh* Thank Goodness for a smart Bishop. And you know what, Matt and I believe him 100%. Our Bishop is very Smart and very Spiritual. Oh yeah he also said, Obama might make a good President. That is a good point. So Matt and I decided to give him a chance. We can be grumpy for the next 4 years or we can sustain him.
I hope everyone includes this Country in their prayers everyday no matter who the President is. We are truly so blessed to live here.
God Bless the U.S.A.

And the world makes you queen for a day,
Just go to the mirror and look at yourself,
And see what that woman has to say.
For it isn’t your father or mother or husbands
Who judgment upon you must pass,
The woman whose verdict counts most in your life
Is the one staring back from the glass.
She’s the woman to please never mind all the rest.
For she’s with you clear up to the end,
And you’ve passed the most dangerous, difficult test
If the woman in the glass is your friend.
You may fool the whole world down the pathway of years.
And get pats on the back as you pass,
But your final reward will be the heartaches and tears
If you’ve cheated the woman in the glass.
Happy Halloween!! I hope everyone has a great day.

Hailey then and now
I can not believe it has been three years since I had Hailey. Time goes faster and faster as I get older. Tonight is has also been 3 years since the last time I talked to my Dad. I remember my Brother calling me at the hospital and putting my Dad on the phone with me, and my Dad saying Hello and telling me that he is not doing to good. 2 days later on Nov 1st, he died. I miss my Dad. I'm still so grateful for Heavenly Father who knows me so well. I believe he timed Hailey's birth and my Dad's death so close together so that I would not be overwhelmed with sorrow, instead I would be celebrating the birth of my child. And it worked.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY HAILEY! Last night when she went to bed I stayed up and decorated the house so that when she woke up in the morning it would be the first thing she saw. And might I add, she was very excited. Then we just hung out for the day, and then after Matt and the girls got home is when it got busy. We had to go and pick up her cake, then we went to the Bear mill and she got to build a bear, compliments of my sister-in-law (she owns the Bear Mill) that was a lot of fun. She picked a blue bear and dressed it up in a Bee Halloween costume. Very cute. Then we had to come home and get dressed up to go to the Primary Halloween Carnival. That was a lot of fun too. Somewhere in between all of that we actually ate dinner and opened presents.

Erin, Autumn and Hailey sleep in one bed and Me, Matt and Davin sleep in the other bed. Well at 12:30am Hailey decided to wake up and throw a fit. She wanted her Mom, I could not move or I would wake up Davin. Well she was screaming and there was no way she could come over and sleep with us. We all were cramped. Finally I decided to risk waking up Davin and went over to cuddle with her. After cuddling with her she calmed down. Matt was so mad at her. She freaked out for like 30 minutes. He had to be up early the next morning so this tantrum was not good.
Ok, so this is the conversation that took place after everyone was back in bed and calmed down, Matt was still trying to calm down, he was very upset at Hailey.
silence for a few seconds
Hailey: I love you.
silence for a few seconds
Matt: I love you too.
Hailey: I love Mommy and Daddy.
Matt: I know.
Hailey: I love baby cheetos.
It was really cute and sweet. She knows how to work her Daddy.

Well life is boring it seems. However Autumn did have her Birthday on Sept. 21st. She turned 9. She is a lot of fun. She is always making me laugh, and she has such a wonderful imagination. I used to have quite an imagination when I was her age too. I used to make houses for my barbies out of everything I could find laying around the house. Now I walk into Autumn's room and on her desk is a whole house for her littlest pet shops, made up of stuff from around the house! lol. I remember having to clean up my mess...that part sucked and it took such a long time because everything was from all over the house. Anyways... Autumn got to take her BFF's to the movies for her Birthday. They went and saw Kung Fu Panda. Matt is the one who took them and actually said he really enjoyed the movie. He said it taught good morals. I'm glad it was a easy B-day, planning big party's is really hard. So I'm glad we decided not to do it every year. This is Autumn with a gift card she got at her "mini party".
Matt is back in Hatch, again. He is going every week now. Tuesday morning to Friday night. Yeah, it sucks. We all miss him when he is gone. The kids try and take advantage of me. Sometimes I'm a softy. What can I say, that is just how Mom's are sometimes. We got web cams so we can see each other, but right now he is at a motel with out Internet, so that plan won't work this trip.
I just got over some weird stomach bug. I caught it from Hailey. It was more like an intestine bug. I've really never had anything like it. It only lasted 2 days. Thank goodness.
Wednesday, September 10, 2008
I could not believe it when Joey and Jana (Matt's brother and wife) showed up! It was so neat. And then when we were about to get sealed his sister Jenny and her husband Buzz walked in!!! Talk about SURPRISED! It was awesome. They live far so we were not expecting them to make it. When I saw Jenny I was so Happy. It was a great day.
Sunday, September 7, 2008
I also got a calling today, I'm on the Relief Society Enrichment Committee. I think it will be a lot of fun. I was worried at first, I thought they might call me as a teacher or something. I was stressing for nothing. I seem to do that a lot. I was only worried about how I would full fill a calling like that with Davin still being so young. The Lord has everything under control.
Thursday, September 4, 2008
Anyways, I started book 4 of the Twilight series yesterday. I really like these books.
Wednesday, September 3, 2008
I went down and got all my Temple clothing the other day. It was a fun experience. I'm glad my sister-in-law went with me cause I had no idea what I was doing.
Matt is heading back up to Hatch today for 3 days. It has been a while since the last time he went up there. I t feels like the first time again. I'm glad I have my book to read. It will be great. The book will take me about 3 days to read too. :o)
Sunday, August 24, 2008
Alicia let me borrow a book called Twilight. I've heard so much about it. I'm excited to read it. It is the first fantasy I will read. I hope I like it. Well my baby is crying and needs me now. Goodnight
Thursday, August 21, 2008
Anyways the movie was really cute. I still want to go see Mama Mia. I heard that was really cute too. I'm all up for going out by my self too sometimes.
The girls are enjoying school. Erin and I just did her first big math project tonight. She had to interview a parent, and make a chart on poster board about how that parent uses math in there work. It was neat. I got to dig into my creative side.
My Birthday is on Sunday. I will be 28 years old.
Tuesday, August 12, 2008
It was nice to clean my house this morning and have it remain clean ALL DAY LONG! It was fabulous to not hear the fighting and bickering ALL DAY LONG! (Well at least for 8 hours a day)
I was able to lay down and take a nap with Hailey and Davin and the girls were not in waking me up.
I love school.
Hailey and Davin were both so happy to see the girls when they stepped off the bus and they were happy to see them too.
I did all my back to school shopping on ebay and saved a ton of money, plus I was able to buy for Hailey and Davin for the fall/winter months. It is kinda addicting because it is fun to win.
Saturday, August 9, 2008
Anyways... It was a neat experience. I was worried that Matt would get bored with it, but he didn't. Thank goodness. The play was 3 hours long! My poor Davin cried the whole time we were gone. Actually I should say my poor babysitter. He has stranger anxiety. Even with Erin and Autumn home he still just wanted his mommy. I think that is sweet. I guess we might have to wait a little longer before we go out again. Or make our dates super short.
Sunday, August 3, 2008
I'm already so proud of her.
Friday, August 1, 2008
So anyways, this is what I have decided. I have been thinking about it for a couple of weeks now. I know the perfect time to do it is when Matt is not home.
I know I will be able to maintain it, I'm not worried about that.
Oh yeah, I get to go on a date tonight. I feel that Davin is finally old enough to be left with a babysitter. My sister-in-law told me that she goes on date nights every Saturday, and said we can have Andrea ( her daughter/ our babysitter) every Friday night. I hope we will go out for regular date nights. I know I need it. Matt does too, he just doesn't know it yet. ;o)
Thursday, July 31, 2008
We now have "swim" times. At 11:00 am for 1 hour, then at 3:00 for 1 hour and then when Matt gets home from work for how ever long. And in between swim times the back door will be locked, with a Hailey proof lock. Erin and Autumn can not even reach it.

Friday, July 25, 2008
When Albert got out of the van to go into the C-store, Erin told me how sad that made her, and she did not like his potty mouth. I agreed, and wished she would not have had to see that.
All the way home I felt sad, but at the same time so grateful. Grateful that we have the gospel in our lives and for so many other things. I love how my life is safe and secure. I love that I can give my children that safety and security too.
When I got home and told Matt about it, he felt really bad for even sending me. I told him I did not want to pick him up anymore. He understood. But of course if my honey needs my help I will always be there to help him, I just won't take my kids anymore.
Wednesday, July 23, 2008
So Erin got her braces yesterday. She was so excited all day, everyday since the day she found out she was getting them. Well now she is SO sore. :( My poor girl. I feel bad. It is also bringing back memories of when I had my braces. OUCH!I had a dream last night that Erin and I both had braces and all I can really remember about the dream was worrying about how we were going to make 2 payments. It was crazy. I was trying to figure out why I got my braces back on without figuring out how I was going to pay for them first.When we got home from the dentist, Autumn came running out to the van to see Erin's teeth and she was surprised at how cute Erin looked with them on. Autumn said "Wow Erin you look really cute with your braces". It was strange to hear a compliment come out of her mouth to Erin. Autumn told me that she expected the braces to take up her whole mouth, like not be able to see any of her teeth. Erin can't eat anything. Except soup. Erin is glad they make yummy soup. Well that's all for now.
Saturday, July 19, 2008
I hope they don't get let down in there life like I was let down in mine. Going after the impossible.
Well Only 3 more days till Erin gets her braces. Now she is getting nervous. One day she is excited, the next day she is nervous. She will not like them, but she will be so grateful later in life.
Today is Saturday, and I'm already bored out of my mind. I always assumed Saturdays were for getting things done, spending some time together as a family. Matt spends SO much time in front of his computer!!!!! It bugs me!
Well now since I'm done complaining I guess I will get on with my house cleaning. I hope everyone (Kim) has a great weekend!
Tuesday, July 15, 2008
We are both VERY happy to know everything is the way it is supposed to be, it would have been nice to be informed.
Monday, July 14, 2008
I went and met with the stake President yesterday to finish up my interview. It was amazing. The spirit I felt in that room was indescribable. I still feel like I'm floating.
Erin is really looking forward to getting her braces on. She will be getting them 1 week from tomorrow. (Tuesday) The Dr. said she would be excited for about 15 minutes after she gets them. It will be so great for her when she is older. It will really boost her self esteem. Well I guess that's all for now. Hailey is in the kitchen crying for lunch. She just woke up from her nap so she is grouchy on top of being hungry.
Saturday, July 12, 2008
At least I know he wont be gone in the winter. All the roads are closed due to snow. So I will have him, home then. He said I could drive up there on Wednesday and stay a day or two. I have done that before, but to do it every week does not sound like my cup of tea. I will have to see how I feel about it when the time comes. Who knows, I might just miss him that much.
Anyways...We finally went out and got a new T.V last night. It is great. The picture is clear and the colors are beautiful. We have been using this one that Matt's sister gave to us 3 years ago. It was good for awhile but it was definitely time to upgrade. The girls are happy, they get to watch Hannah Montana on it. Hailey keeps asking to watch Mickey Mouse on the new T.V.
She is a funny girl.
OK so here is the countdown for Erin...9 days till Erin gets her braces. Not counting today or the day she gets them.family
Thank you Kim!
Thursday, July 10, 2008
Well life has been good for my family and I lately. Matt has a customer that has turned out to be AWESOME!!! He treats Matt well and they have mutual respect for each other. Mike (the customer) is remodling 3 motels up in Hatch, and Matt is helping. Plus, it is SOOO hot in St. George in the summer and it is about 20 degress cooler up in Hatch, so Matt is thrilled that he gets to work out of town this summer. He goes up early on a Tuesday and comes home Friday night and usally only every other week so he is not gone all the time. Sometimes I go up for 1 or 2 nights. It is nice to get away from the heat for me too. However, I must say thay there is no place like home. I like having my routine and knowing where everything is.
Monday, April 14, 2008
It took him hours & hours to have all that stuff. Now everything is wiped out. I feel so bad.
Wednesday, April 2, 2008
Maybe we should go bowling or even play golf. I would not mind going on a walk with my family every night after dinner. I need some change. Even just a little. I'm not picky.
Tuesday, April 1, 2008
She is still scared of the "big" toilet, but I believe with time and as she gets bigger the big toilet will just be ok with her just like it has with the rest of human kind. As long as I can think of I have never seen an adult using a baby potty. But who knows.
