My PG-13 Husband!

At Our House

Right now we're really lovin this:

Here's What I'm Sure You Didn't Want To Know


Glenn Beck, how I love thee.
Let me count the ways:

5:00
pm
Should I start dinner now or do I wait? Well if I start it now then maybe it'll be done by 6:00. It's 4:59
, click "Tonight America, here's what you need to know." Awe, my dear Mr. Beck. But having two kiddos running around and dinner on the stove I can hardly catch everything that my dear Mr. Beck is talking, ranting, flailing, and is all around concerned about. But not to worry......
7:00
pm
That's right, click "Tonight America, here's what you need to know." And still with two hellions (for at this time they have transformed; too tired to act sweet and nice but not tired enough to just CALM DOWN!) I can hardly catch what my dear Mr. Beck is saying, yelling, screaming, or shaking his fists at. But not to worry.....

10:00
pm
You guessed it, for this is the magic hour, click "Tonight America, here's what you need to know." Between picking up the days mess and getting myself ready for bed I still can hardly catch what my dear Mr. Beck is telling me. But with both of my angels (for at this time they have transformed into sleeping, angelic messes) snoozing the night away I have a better chance to ponder, reflect, and rant along with my dear Mr. Beck.
That's right Mr. Beck, stick it to 'em.

Weekend Workings

So my weekend projects spilled over into the week, no biggie.

We are having a little trouble with our FHE's and so I thought that maybe if we had "assigned" topics that it would help, you know, so we don't have to think too awfully hard. So I decided to make an FHE Jar. Now every Monday after FHE we will pull a topic out of the jar and who ever is assigned the lesson with have at it.


Here's another thing we worked on this weekend. We picked this little gem up on freecycle (luuuuvv it!) and after 4 trips to Home Depot (trip 1: get new screws and bolts, trip 2: get the right size of screws because they apparently had to be metric, trip 3: pick up more of the right size of screws because they only had 6 on trip 2, trip 4: pick up more of the right size screws because they didn't have any on trip 3) and for the cost of some screws (and maybe my sanity) we have ourselves a trampoline. You are all welcome to come over and use it. Of course since we don't have a safety enclosure you will have to sign a personal injury waiver, that's just the kind of world we live in now folks.

Confession!!


When I eat Lucky Charms or Captain Crunch (and yes I still eat them) I always save the marshmallows and Crunch Berries till the very end. Yum!!

He's In The Army Now

This is more for me to remember than anything but precisely at 7:39 PM Caleb Ray Aycock tried and successfully completed his first army crawl.

note: This video was taken a few days later. He is trying to thwart the plans of the evil one who has stolen his bottle just to get him to crawl for the camera.

I know, I know, I'm sooo cruel.

I've Been Scalped!!!

I didn't tell Kevin before we came here but I was planning on getting my haircut........and........I DID. I actually had enough to donate to Locks of Love, 10".

The other night I prepared dinner for everyone. I made the Quinoa Primavera that Erin posted on her blog ever so long ago. It was good, however, it would have been way better if I hadn't....ahem...."overcooked" parts of it. I was able to visit D.I.s (can you believe I've never been?) and I have to say that for a thrift store it is exceptionally clean. It now warrants a stop every Utah visit.

Utah Livin!

Well I thought I'd post a few things while here in the lovely deseret. It's fun to be here for a nice change of pace. Lydia is loving playing with all of her cousins especially Brianna, Emily, and Kaitlyn. We had the wonderful opportunity to attend one of my nephew's baptisms, Ryan. He was so excited. Even though we're having a good time and I love being around all of my family I miss Kevin tons and tons; Lydia and Caleb too. Every time Lydia hears the door open and close she yells "Daaa eee home! Daaa eee home!" Poor thing.


First we have Lydia with the "Legos" house we built together. Now I look at it I think it needed an overhang.


Here is Ryan, awe, he's lookin all clean, shiny, bright, and new; until he went and slugged his brother of course.


These next two are just of Lydia playing in the Myers' backyard after the baptism.



note: kudos to Jessica on the pictures.
