Hi everyone, I haven't posted in a while and I was feeling like a slacker. Well, new updates...Rachel my gorgeous, talented sister in law and her sister Suzanne decided to start a business of making baby quilts (Don't worry, I will link it) I decided to jump in making diapees and wipees cases, baby bags, scripture totes, etc. If you are interested in purchasing some "quality handmade crap" please let me know. Just saw new pictures of the Woolner's baby, she is so cute and makes me jones for little baby stage again. Jack-a-rama, AKA Jack's 1st birthday will be held at my house on the 16th at 1 pm. Please let me know if you didn't get an invitation, I don't have everyone's email. Also, the workers at Buffalo Exchange are involved in reverse discrimination...If you don't have extra holes in your ears, lip, nose or nipple, along with black nail polish and 2 different colors of hair, do not expect to be treated with the same respect that someone with a pink and red mohawk wearing tight jeans and having a spear through your lower lip would. If you would like to hear a story, please let me know. I am trying to be more positive this year...I keep reading this blog that I am addicted too, and everytime I look at it I feel sad, and like I am not good enough. This annonymous person, we'll call her "Leslie Schmarris" seems to have everything, good looks, plenty of ITC (inner thigh clearance-you know when the tops of you thighs don't touch) a cute husband and beautiful daughters and plenty of disposable income. They seem to do things like go mountain lion hunting for example, or run marathons. Things that normal people don't do, but they want to. Anyway, everytime that I see Leslie Schmarris' blog, I feel bad about myself and that I am lacking. One of my new years' resolutions is to stop thinking about "things" to make me happy, and stop comparing myself to others. Working in the ER I have seen people at their worst, and I know that people's lives are never as good as they seem.
Rather than feeling bad about all the things that I don't have (like ITC) I will list the amazing things in my life:
1. A cute, cute husband who I adore, and who thinks after stretch marks, two babies and four years together that I am cute, funny and still likes being around me. I love you hot man-meat!
2. Two of the most amazing people in the world as my children. Jack is so fun, loves his momma, constantly makes me laugh, lets me snuggle him and is cute to boot. Emma was too amazing to keep hanging out in this world, if you had the privelege of meeting her you know that she was sassy, fun, sweet, empathetic (pretty amazing for a nearly 2 year old) and beautiful.
3. The best mommy. ever. 'Nuff said
4. The best sisters ever-I am counting Rachel and Brianne in this, along with Kam and Cristi. You guys ROCK!! Kami, I miss you everyday!
5. The greatest friends ever-special shout out to Deanna-can you believe that we've been friends for like 7 years? Time flies! Love you lots!
6. Ok, so I have really cute hair. Not to be boastful, but it is pretty cute, and now I have Reece Witherspoon bangs.
7. The funnest and cuddliest daddy ever. There is nothing better than making my daddy laugh and watching his belly shake. tee hee
8. Awesome brothers who I love hanging out with. The best is when they were coaching me at guitar funny.
9. A newfound testimony of the principle that families can be together forever. Also, a newfound appreciation for the atonement and for a loving and personal Heavenly Father and Jesus.
10. Chocolate, ice cream and french fries. Ok, seriously, I know God loves us because he gave us amazing tasty treats to eat and not just barley and carrots and stuff.
11. The most loyal and protective dog anyone could ever had. Moose has been with me through the best times and the worse times of my life and she is the best.
Wow, see I already feel better! I appreciate you all...thanks for being a part of this crazy adventure of life with me.

This is why I love my husband...

Upon discovering that people he did not know had posted on his fitness blog (check it out, it is really funny) he stated "Homophiles would be all over me. I am a tasty piece of man-meat." Homophiles come from when he first stated that pedophiles would be all over him and I reminded him that he is 27, not 7; therefore, the phrase pedophile does not apply to him.
Justin, honey, I am really glad I married you. You make me laugh like none other, and if I don't tell you enough I simply adore you!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Jack hijacking the camera Jackson and Grampy Jack opening cars!

Wow, I haven't posted in a long time...Christmas was really nice, my parents and brother and sister came to town and it was so nice to have everyone together! Jackson decided that he did like this Santa fellow after all, at least the present part of Santa Claus. He was hysterical because he stood on the edge of the boxes and screamed everytime someone opened a present. It was a lot of fun to give gifts this year, because I made my mom cry not once, not twice but three times. It was also fun to see Rachel open up the scripture case I made for her. I will post a couple of pictures of the cases. My current project is making a new crib set for Jack I will post pictures when I am all done. I am thinking about some goals for this new year-inspired by Rachel, but I am literally sick and tired right now so I will have to save it for another day. In the meantime, enjoy some pictures of the cutest nearly 11 month old ever!

Love ya all...

Jack enjoying his new presents from Santa...he was a VERY good boy this year!
