We are moving

We have found our house and our offer has been accepted, yipee. We are moving the end of February. I went to get the picture off the website but it was already taken off so you will have to trust me that it is a lovely house. It is in Sandy maybe just 5-10 minutes from where we live now. We have been just fine and comfortable in our rental but now that I know we are moving I can't wait to get out of here. It has been very cold here this winter and our house is always cold to me. Our family room has a fireplace, big window, and sliding glass door that lets cold air in. Anyway... we are very excited. So now it is time to start thinking about packing. I am going to get on that since I know the time will go by quickly and with 3 kids things take 800 times longer to get done than normal. Maybe I will drive by the house and take a picture for all y'all to see. Life is exciting.

handlebars or not?



maybe it is our close proximity to the west side that made Steve think having a mustache would be a good idea, the only question is handlebars or no handlebars?

I have a pretty baby




Here she is... Ivy Lucile, born Friday January 18th. She weighed 6 lbs 12 oz and was 18.5 inches long. She is beautiful and sweet and I can't get enough of her. Yeah! I am so glad she is on the outside of me!

enough is enough

I was having a pretty good attitude, feeling okay, and telling myself to be patient. Then Sunday came and I have felt horrible ever since. I feel like throwing up, I have contractions in the night, and I can barely walk. If this baby doesn't come soon there will be more tears shed while I sit helpless on the couch. Kate watched my kids yesterday while I TRIED to go have the baby, but they sent me home. I am tired of being fat, out of breath, sick, in pain... Can you tell I am in a bad mood? There is nothing fun about being pregnant.

who would you vote for?

Andrew was wondering who these people were on the TV, I said they want to be the next new president of America. I explained that they try and let people know who they are and when the time comes we can vote and choose who we want to be the president. Andrew said "like you say, ya I want Jesus". Wouldn't that solve a lot of problems? Maybe Andrew could be our next president? He is smart, funny, and is pretty good at choosing the right. Andrew for President!

okay, I will try my best.


I don't know if this is weird news to share with all y'all, but I am dialated to a 3. I feel this is great news and I can't wait until I am no longer pregnant. I am just not a fan of pregnancy, but the outcome of the whole darn thing is pretty great.

Amy asked Andrew how long he had had his cough "ten years" responded Andrew "ever since Mesa".

Yes, the cold weather has brought on the boogs and coughs but I think we are about done, after 3 weeks!

Steve and I have found a lovely home that we are considering making an offer on. Oh, how I can't sleep at night now! I just imagine all the rooms filled with our stuff. It is driving me crazy how I can't stop my mind. You should see the inside of this house, man. It is chuck full of furniture and decor. Everything is either cream, white or tan. Kate said "like the temple". Maybe that's what this lady was going for. Anyway, it is a pretty home and I am very excited about it. I am trying to stay "cool" about the whole thing.

Ella is still holding on to babyhood with her diapers. She has no interest on making that giant step to potty and panties. We have the panties and she thinks they are "cute". We have the candy and she talks all the time about it. "I go pee on the potty I get one treat. I go poo I get two!" Lately I purchased diapers for the baby to come. So now we talk about how the baby has little diapers and Ella has big ones. Today during a diaper change she said "my diapers are big because I have a big bum". It takes a confident girl to admit she has a big bum. But I have decided not to fight with the girl, and for any of you who know her know that I would sorely lose! She is one tuff cookie.

I would like to thank my loyal fans for giving me a blog boost. My sista's, my sista-in-law, and my mesa gals. Without you this blog would stink. sniffle, sniffle.

peace out
