Our own room

Since Hailey was born she has always slept with me. I figured it was easier for me to get sleep if I just nursed her in bed with me. And it worked. Well when Davin came along I decided to put Hailey in her own bed right next to my bed and I would put Davin in bed with me. Well again it worked, but this time not as well. My poor Hailey was getting her feelings hurt. She felt like she was being pushed out for this new baby. She was being mean to Davin and whining a lot. So I prayed for answers. The very same day that I prayed for inspiration, I got it. I knew Hailey was sad, and was missing her cuddle time with her Mommy. So being the sap that I am... I put them both in bed with me. I know, I know, what in the heck was I thinking. BUT, it worked. Until now. It has only been a month since I put them both in my bed, and I get NO sleep. Davin likes to nurse all night long, Hailey wiggles ALL NIGHT LONG! Enough is enough.

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!

Christmas Day

Me and my Hunny, Christmas Morning
Miss Diva!
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.

My Stockings

These are my new stockings for the kiddo's
My sister-in-law and I worked hard on them to get them done by Christmas. I think they are probably my favorite thing I got for Christmas, except my new purse my hunny got me, cause I LOVE my new purse.

Happy Birthday Davin!

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.

A snow day in St. George

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.


This is what my sister-in-law Liz and her daughter Clara did this morning. It was so beautiful, I had to take a picture of it and share it. Merry Christmas.

Temple Work

Today was a very special day. Matt and I went to the Temple and we did my Mom and my Dad's Temple work. I also was able to seal my Mom to her parents. It was amazing. I felt the presence of my Mom so strong. My sister in law sat in as my Grandmother and Matt sat in as my Grandfather and I as my Mother. What was funny was as soon as the sealing was complete and the man performing the ceremony said "Amen" the light flickered. At the exact same moment. It was awesome. I said "did you see that"! And everyone in the room was just as amazed as I was. It was really cool. My Mom was a joker, she would have done that just for the fun of it. My sister in law said she has never meet my mom, and she felt her presence as well. The spirit was very strong and unmistakable. I have felt so good all day long. I miss my Mom. I feel like I have spent the day with her. I look forward to the day I get to see her again.

A new do

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.

Obama is President

Obama is President. I'm SO disappointed.
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.

Mirror Image

When you get what you want in your struggle for self
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.


Last night me and my sister-in-law went out to Tuacahn to see Thriller. It was amazing! I just love dancing, and it was all dancing. There were these Zombies walking around trying to scare people. Their costumes were so cool. It is the second time I've been out to Tuacahn. The only other time was when I went out to see Cinderella with my friend Kim. That was a really fun show too. I'm thankful for a great husband who stays home and watches the kids so I can get out once in awhile. He told me at dinner that he is happy that I'm going out and doing something for myself because I run myself ragged around here. was a great night.
Happy Halloween!! I hope everyone has a great day.

Hailey's Birthday

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.

My coat rack

I'm trying to tap into my creative side. This is what I've got so far. I did not put names on it cause I figured anyone who came to my house and saw it, would already know who the people are.

Friday, October 17, 2008


So the kids and I went to Hatch yesterday to take Matt a package he was waiting for. Everything was great. The trip was nice. I love having a DVD in the van. The kids were so good all the way up and back. The room we stay in has 2 Queen beds.
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.
Hailey: Daddy?
silence for a few seconds
Matt: What?
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.
Matt: lol

It was really cute and sweet. She knows how to work her Daddy.

A new calling

So Matt and I both received a new calling yesterday at church. Matt is the Secretary to the Elders Quorum, and I'm the Cub Scout leader to the Bears, also known as the Den Mother. I will be meeting with the 9 year old boys every Tuesday and doing activities with them and a lesson. I'm excited about it. I thought it was cool that Matt and I both got a calling on the same day.
I also still do the Relief Society enrichment committee. We are planning Super Saturday now. It's going to be a lot of fun.

Hailey the Firefighter

Hailey loves fire trucks. She notices them all over town and gets so happy to see them. So when we were walking out of Lin's today and saw a fire truck pulling in she was excited to get to see one up close. So we walked up to it and the firemen showed Hailey the inside of the firetruck which was cool to see even for me. Then they pulled out a little fire hat and gave it to Hailey. Well Hailey gave it to Davin and said "here Davin". Lucky for her they had another hat. So she ended up with one too. I thought that was so sweet that she was willing to give up her super cool fire hat just so Davin was happy. Anyways... Hailey has been SO happy all day, she keeps telling her story to everyone in here life. Oh yeah, after we were done she kept yelling back to the fire guys, "Thank you firefighters", and she keeps telling me how much she likes firefighters.

Hailey's 1st Birthday party

Hailey was invited to her first Birthday party. It was exciting. She had so much fun. She went to it with Autumn because she was afraid to be there alone. Her friend's name is Riley, and he just turned 4. Hailey picked him out a Lightning McQueen car that is remote control. Riley really loved it. His party was also in the Cars theme. Anyways...I thought it was a special occasion so I figured I would write about it.

My growing boy.

I walked into the bathroom the other day and found Davin standing up next to the bathtub. I just can't believe how fast time flies. He was just my new little baby not too long ago. And it seems like he just started crawling. Pretty soon he'll be walking.

A little of everything

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.

The Temple

Last night we went to the Temple. It was nothing like I expected. It was so beautiful. I was sealed to Matt and then we were sealed to Hailey and Davin. The sealing was Amazing! When it was time to bring the kids in, I could hear Hailey coming up the stairs saying "I don't want to" and "I want to see my mommy". Everyone thought it was funny. However when she did see me and everyone else it completely freaked her out. She was scared. Davin realized he was hungry, so the kids wined through that part of the sealing. It was still beautiful. There was so much to take in. I was so hungry by the time we left. I'm looking forward to going back. I'm looking forward to helping my family who has already passed away. I want to seal my Mom to her parents and me to my parents. There is so much to do. Including getting Erin and Autumn sealed to us as soon as the adoption is complete.
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.

A new member

Autumn is now a member of the LDS church. She was baptised on Saturday the 6th of Sept. She was confirmed today at church. She was so happy when she came out of that water, she kept telling me how good she felt. And then she was saying how good she felt again today after they confirmed her. I remember when I got baptised, I remember feeling really good afterward. I'm proud of her for making the right choice.
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

The date is set

The date is set. We will be going to the Temple and getting sealed on Tuesday Sept 9th. I have to be there at 3:10pm and the Endowment will start at 4:40 and the Sealing at 6:40pm. I'm really excited and also nervous. I'm only nervous because I don't really know what to expect. Fear of the unknown.
Anyways, I started book 4 of the Twilight series yesterday. I really like these books.

Wednesday, September 3, 2008


So I have been reading Twilight and the following books. Oh My Goodness!!! It is fabulous! Today I finally get to start the last and final book. I have read 3 (long) books in 9 days. Matt said I'm addicted. He is right. I have never read a fantasy before. I've always stuck to non-fiction. Man, I've really been missing out on some exciting reading. I can't not wait to start the last book so I can see how the story ends. My friend Alicia has all the books so she has just been loaning them to me as a go. I'm so happy about that, because I went to the library the other day to see if they had it in, and they don't! All 23 copy's are checked out and there is a long waiting line.
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)

Happy Birthday to me!

Happy Birthday to me! I'm officially 28. I really don't feel different. I don't know when Birthday's are supposed to make you feel different or if they ever do. Anyways... I had a great day. I went to a woman's fireside tonight. That was nice. It was even better to not have my children there distracting me. I was really able to get into the meeting, and to get the whole message. My friend Emily went with me too. Then we came back to my house for some cake and Ice cream. Yummy!
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

Cooking class

So tonight I went over to Sue's house for the ward cooking class. It was a lot of fun. There were women there that I have not had a chance to get to know. They were all very friendly. I'm so glad that I went. Usually I would not go because I'm scared of stepping out of my comfort zone. But lately I've been feeling kinda lonely, and wanting to make some new friends. I had no idea so many girls would show up. Plus I got a whole bunch of new recipes to try out in my Crock Pot. I have been spending more time with Alicia Buck. She is pregnant and I guess she is kinda lonely too. We went and saw The Sisterhood of the Traveling pants 2. It was neat to be able to go out with a friend and leave the kids at home for a little while. Peace. Love it!
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.

Back to school

Well today was back to school day. Yay!
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.

White Star

We went out on a double date last night and we went to a musical production that the Cox auditorium put on. It is called White Star. It is actually a sequel to Saturday's Warrior. Oh my goodness...It was great. It was so spiritual. There is no way anyone could walk out of there grumpy. It is only the second time I've ever gone to something like that. The first time was when Kim took me out to Tuachan to see Cinderella. I loved that too. We are planning on going to Las Vegas for our Anniversary to see The Phantom of the Opera. I hope we get to go.
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.

Hailey's Prayer

Tonight after reading Hailey her bedtime story we said a prayer together and as I was ending it she said " ma-ma keep me safe in pool" I stopped and asked her if she wanted me to ask Heavenly Father to keep her safe in the pool, and she said yes, and she also said "ask to keep her safe while in her floaties". I thought that was the sweetest thing. How great is that, she is already trusting in him.
I'm already so proud of her.

Ready for the challange

I'm ready to go on a diet. I need to shrink my stomach. So I have decided that when Matt goes up to Hatch again, I'm going to do a Slim Fast/ Lean Cuisine diet. What I will do is have a good, healthy breakfast, then I will have a Slim Fast for lunch and a Lean Cuisine for dinner. I have had a problem achieving my weight loss goal because of how much I eat. I eat healthy, my problem is I eat too much! Food is so yummy. Even when I feel full, I still want to eat the food. I need to learn how to follow my bodies inner instinct.
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)

The pool

Matt went and bought a pool last night at Walmart. I think it's great for the family because it is so dang hot here, however I worry about Hailey. I keep having these horrible thoughts that she gets out of the house and tries to go swimming by herself and slips and falls in the water and can't get back up. Ugh, I hate the feelings that thought gives me. The pool is only 3 ft. deep, but I know any amount of water can be dangerous. I'm always aware of her, she is a VERY active child so I have learned that if she is not bothering me...she is into something.
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.
Safety first.

New Bed

We got a new bed, well kinda. It is new to us. Matt's sister gave us her old bed set. I'm so excited. I have been wanting one, but they are not cheap. After we set up the bed we decided we wanted a new bedding set to go with it. It is the most beautiful thing in our house now. Matt and I both love it. Neither one of us has had really nice stuff growing up so it is something new for both of us to have something we really like.

Friday, July 25, 2008


Today I went to pick up Matt's worker, Albert, just like I do everyday. Well today Albert and his "live-in" girlfriend, Ruth, were fighting. When I pulled up, Ruth was standing outside talking with her neighbor. We started talking and she asked if I had the baby ( I did, I also had Erin + Hailey with me) So she opened the door and was talking to him, Davin was smiling and enjoying their conversation when Albert came out of the house huffing and puffing, he came up to the van and told her to get the %!*#* out of the way! I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT!!!! She was doing nothing wrong. So she shut my door and walked away. Well Albert got in my van & slammed my door. Again I could not believe it. It was so uncomfortable. I wanted to cry all the way home. We try not to have contention in our home, we center our home around Christ, so this was just unacceptable.
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.

Erin's Braces

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.

My Brother came to town yesterday for a short visit. He was driving through and stopped here to pick up a tool box I've been storing for him. It was a good visit. We have always been less then close. I've wanted to have a relationship with my brother for as long as I can remember, however there is something in the way. ??? Don't ask me what it is! Since as long as I've known him he has always had a problem with me. It makes me sad. I've learned that I can't change it and he does not want to change it. My new family (Matt's brothers & sisters) are amazing. I have the brother/sister relationship that I never had with Donald, with them. Erin and Autumn sure love him.
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!

Erin's tooth

So today we went and got 1 of Erin's tooth pulled. She will be getting her braces in 1 week and she did not have enough room for her teeth, so they decided to pull out one. I was told that they would be pulling out the one behind the K-9. So all week I've been showing Erin the tooth they were going to pull out. Well today we came home and Erin tells me "Mom they did not pull out the tooth you said they were going to pull out"... I said "What?!?!?" So she showed me, I freaking panicked!!! They pulled out her adult K-9! I was seriously freaking out. I have always been told that your K-9's are your strongest teeth, and that they are also your most important teeth. So Of course, I called the dentist that pulled out her tooth, I said I think you pulled the wrong tooth (remember, the orthodontist told me it would be the other one) So they put me on hold and came back reassuring me that they did not. So I called the orthodontist, They put him right on they phone with me, he told me that the tooth behind her K-9 was just as strong as her K-9 and so they decided to just pull that one, he told me everything was going the way they had planned and he would talk to me more when we came in next week. OK...whatever happened to the parents knowing what in the heck is going on?!?! No one ever told me they were pulling a different tooth! No one ever explained anything to me until I was in a complete panic. I had Erin in a panic. We both thought they completely screwed up.
We are both VERY happy to know everything is the way it is supposed to be, it would have been nice to be informed.

Hi-Ho-Hi-Ho so off to work Matt goes. He left for Hatch this morning and was supposed to stay there till Friday, but he just called me to tell me that he would be back on Thursday. Plus he will be working in town the following week. So that is good news. I was wondering if he was going to be going up there every week. Even though I miss him when he is gone, I know that Heavenly Father is taking care of us. I feel so blessed.
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.

I had no idea yellow would be so hard to read. I will never use that color again.


Well Matt is going back up to Hatch next week. This time on Monday instead of Tuesday. He will be staying there until Friday. I'm bothered by this. He just got back! I thought there would be at least a week between trips. Plus he is going up a day earlier then before. I'm happy that we have a steady income now. But I miss him when he is gone, and so do the kids. *sigh*
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

Thank you Kim!

I'll give it another try.

I have not written in awhile because I always feel like I'm not doing it right. Well I talked to Kim the other day and she said all you do is just write what ever you want. So I decided I would give it another try.
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

Well I prayed for Matt to want to spend more time with the family and less time on the computer, and I think it backfired. Something went wrong on his hard drive and he lost everything! He lost his files and all his programs. So now he is spending even more time on his computer trying to get everything again + he is sad that he lost everything in the first place. WHAT HAPPENED?!?!
It took him hours & hours to have all that stuff. Now everything is wiped out. I feel so bad.

Another day

Well today is just another day. Same old thing as yesterday. BORING!!!! Get up feed the baby, get the baby dressed. Get Erin and Autumn ready for school. Get Hailey ready for the day, then I sit my butt on the computer. Go to all the same spots that I go to everyday. MSN, Myfamily and Myspace etc.. everyday same old thing.
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.

Hailey is potty trained

Well today is day 5 of Hailey going potty in the toilet. And day 2 of not having a wet pull-up during the night. I'm so proud of her. Last night we went up to Cedar City to get a new bed and she wore her panties there and back. All we did was take her little potty with us and anytime she needed to go she just told us and we stopped and let her go. We had NO accidents! She did this potty training thing on her own. She is such a smart girl.
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.
