My cute cousin Missy has Tagged me and I am sure some of my answers will have some of you wondering how you are friends with such a crazy girl...... but, here it goes.

10 years ago: I had been back from my mission for about a month. I was still asking my sisters to go everywhere with me so I would have a companion. When my friends wanted to hang out I would ask for a specific time, location, people going, what I needed to bring, and exactly what time I would be home. Very nerdy.

5 things on my to do list today: Since it is 10 at night, the only thing I have left to do is a date with my bed for some much needed sleep. Here is what was on my to do list today.

1. Went to aerobics at the church with all of my children and worked out. ( I realized it was time to put my words into action when my three year old daughter told me at church yesterday in the bathroom stall that my bum was to big for the potty. And yes, the bathroom was full of women. Love those honest comments! :))
2. Went to Walmart to do a little grocery shopping.
3. Dropped Jaden and McKay off at a Birthday party at 1:00
4. Made dinner for our dinner group ( If you have no idea about this one, you need to know. It is the best invention ever!)
5. Grandma and Grandpa came over to have FHE with the fam. This consists of McKay and Jaden wrestling, jumping, spinning, dancing, tickling, and basically being completely out of control while grandma and grandpa tell them how cute they are. Then we end with a prayer. :)

5 snacks I enjoy: Are you serious? What snack don't I enjoy?

1. Haagen Das Almond and chocolate covered vanilla ice cream bars ( there are three in each box and I can easily consume the whole thing).
2. Almond Roca
3. Cold Cereal
4. Vanilla bean ice cream
5. And of course the "Pazookie"!!

5 places I have lived:

1. Tempe, AZ
2. Mesa, Az
3. Provo, UT
4. Salt Lake City, UT
5. Queen Creek, AZ
wow!!! I am so impressed with this. :)

What would I do if I was suddenly made a Billionaire:

First, I would buy my dad a brand new, no miles on it, right off the lot, car of his choice. Then, I would by a huge beach house with 10 bed rooms right on the beach for my entire family, fly them all out and tell them that I won a weekend at a fun beach house. Then when they all arrived, and we were all together, I would tell them that we actually now owned the beach house. I get excited just thinking about the reaction. Can you stand it? Then, I would let each member of my family and Shauns family pick out whatever car they wanted and drive it off the lot. Start plans on a custom home on a huge lot of land. Make sure that I bought the other surrounding lots of land so I could live next to my sisters and give the other lots of land to my closest friends and make a perfect neighborhood. Take a trip to Europe with Shaun and stay in all the 5 star hotels. Take a trip to Disneyland with Shaun and the kids for 2 weeks and stay in the nicest room in Disney land and order room service every meal. Take a trip with my sisters, mom, sister n laws, and closest friends and family to a spa for a week and receive messages when ever we like. Go to Oprah ( better yet, be on Oprah!) Give money to friends, family, charity, church, and always have money on hand to give to those homeless guys you see on the corner. This is one of my favorite topics to talk about with my sister. It's fun to dream.

5 jobs I have had:

1. Dance teacher
2. Olan Mills
3. Sears
4. Computer company
5. Dental office

5 things you didn't know about me:

1. I will start with my favorite. My last month on my mission my companion and I were serving in Pres. Hinkleys sons ward and teaching someone in his home. His son invited us over on Christmas for Christmas dinner. It was Clark Hinkley, his wife Kathleen, and their four beautiful children, and my companion and I. All of a sudden President Hinkley, Sister Hinkley, and their body guard come walking in the front door. They joined us for dinner and my comp and I sat directly across from Pres. and Sister Hinkley. I even told a joke which President Hinkley did not get. We laughed, took pictures, and enjoyed watching him just be a grandpa. It is truly one of my most cherished memories that I will never forget.
2. I was really sick for the first four days of my honey moon. Throwing up, fever, the whole nine yards. Poor Shaun
3. Went para sailing in Nice, France with Aubrey after our missions and we were laughing so hard while flying through the air that I peed. Poor people in the boat. I have a bladder problem. :)
4. One summer Aubrey, Becky and I would sneak into Kino Junior High pool at night and go skinny dipping. That makes me laugh as I am typing this.
5. I threw out my back one time while doing a flip on the diving board, trying to show off for a boy I was visiting in Alabama. His mom insisted that a bath would make me feel better. I managed to get in with no problem, but to my complete horror, I realized that I could not get out. I laid there and wished that I could magically disappear. Then, his sister n law and mom knocked on the door and came in. I started crying and told them I couldn't get out. They then proceeded to lift me out. One had one leg and arm and the other had the other arm and leg. They got a pretty good show to say the least. hehehe

Now I get to tag 5 people...... I tag Heidi, Michelle, Melissa S., Juliette, Lorena. Good luck ladies

I'm So Glad When Daddy Comes Home!!!

THE PEDICURE!!! First of all I have to say that having my husband back after three long weeks has brought my sanity back. I sure appreciate him a lot more, and I don't think the kids will ever forget how long their dad was in Nentucky ( aka Kentucky). They have not let him out of their site and are like little puppy dogs at his heels. So the first Saturday after Shaun was back I went to get a pedicure. It was much needed and much deserved if I do say so myself. When I walked in, a cute little Asian women told me to come and sit down and put my feet in the water. When she started massaging my feet I noticed that she had rubber gloves on. I thought to myself, "What a great place, they are so sanitary here!" Then I looked up at the three other ladies getting pedicures and noticed that the women giving them pedicures did not have rubber gloves on. That got me to speculating........... Was my lady the only one in this salon that wears gloves and is just a super clean person, or do they save the rubber gloves for those special clients that have less then desirable toe jam? Did they say in chinese as I walked in the door.......... "We have got a rubber glover coming in get ready!!! Either way, I am bound and determined to find out the mystery behind my pedicurest. Maybe I will pop in unexpected and catch her in the act with somebody else without her gloves on, or maybe I will take a crash course in Chinese from my dad and find out what they are saying. I will let every one know. :) hehehe
Since Shaun has come home Roxcy will only fall asleep at night if he rocks her. It is so cute and absolutley endearing.

Roxcys hair is finalling starting to grow.......... Straight up!!! It is hilarious. And to my complete excitement it has a red tint. I have always wanted a red head. What a little sweetie

I came in the kitchen the other day and found this beautiful creation on my kitchen table. Mckay created it and said it was an alien blob monster and that I had to leave it until daddy got home. So, we set the table around our little alien and had a pleasant dinner with mom, dad, Roxcy, Jaden, Mckay, and the blob monster. No one lost their appetites needless to say.

Look how proud Mckay is of his alien dude

Jaden came down with strep throat last week and was really sick. She would sleep on and off all day long and did not want to eat or do anything. It is always so hard for me to see my kids sick. I knew she was feeling better when I went in to check on her in her room and she asked me where her tiara was and that she needed to put it on because it would make her feel better. I did all I could to keep a serious expression. So Cute and so Funny!!

ON YOUR MARK, GET SET, GO!!!!! Roxcy at 9 months crawling. While Shaun was gone she started doing the army crawl but she waited for the full on crawl until he got home. She is cruising all over the place and Jaden and Mckay love putting items in front of her to crawl to.
