Hello... I am a very pleased Mother of 3 beautiful and amazing children - 2 boys and 1 girl. I am a happily married woman to a smart and handsome man. Anyone who knows me knows that my life is kind of chaotic. I love crafts and consider myself to be a crafty person – I get it from my Mother. To squeeze a little “Me” time into my hectic life, I’ve created a Pinterest Crafts Club, or the P.C.C. A time where I can both craft and spend time with my friends. I love my little family. Life is hard right now, but I have faith that the Lord will never give me a trial that He doesn’t think I can overcome. But man, if trials make you stronger, I’ll be able to give Hercules a run for his money. Hahaha! Just Kidding ;) "You cannot kindle a fire in any other heart unless you have one burning in your own." ~Elder Harold B. Lee

Well we're finally home for a while. You know, I use to like traveling food... now... ugh. That's all I have to say. I love it when we get so see and spend time with the family, it's just the road trip that I hate.
Had a great time and the G&R family reunion. Spent some good time together in Utah at parks and Lagoon. J surprised me. He really liked the roller coasters. His first one, he was kinda nervous... but by the middle of the day, he wanted to go on the big ones. He's tall enough to get on some rides with an adult. One he went on with D and then he asked to go again with me. It was pretty fast. He loved it.
I just felt so bad for Zay though. Stuck being held and sitting in a stroller the whole hot day. But he went on the train ride with us. Saw some zoo animals. When we went by the white tigers, J goes "Mommy! Big Keykey!"
We deff need to go there again. So fun.
Plus, we even got some prizes :)

Now D and I are trying to fix up the house. Still not done with the deck. But we're getting there.

Got a chance to work on the deck today. After Zay went down for a nap, everyone came out to help me. While D helped me with getting the stain out, J finished up sanding the rest of the deck. J loved it ha ha. I only got a little bit done, since we're suposse to be leaving for tomorrow, my deck will just have to be multi colored for a while.I wish we could just stay in one place long enough so I could work on the house. I've been wanting to do this for a while, got pretty ecxcited when we bought the paint and such. Our lil place should look pretty good after everything.

Going from light orangie color
to a chocolate brown

Family is worth it though. Plus the drive this time shouldn't be near as bad. Only bad thing is that D's planning on leaving late because he's going to go work on a friends deck. Ah, that whole thing is becoming more of bother then actual good. Mainlly because we're not going to get near as much $ from it as we would if this was a normal job. Ugh...

I've got a sick man at my house. I think it's the first time since we've been married that he's thrown up. I feel so bad. Mainly because I think he got it from me. I was sick on the way home from Nevada. The same kind of sick he has. Then on top of that he's breaking out all over the place.
He was suppose to be working of a friends deck today. We keep putting that job off. But I just want him to get better.
On the plus side, while he's home, I can have him fix up the paint sprayer and maybe I can start painting the house. We're trying to up the look of the outside of our house before we have to sell it. Picked a light steel blue color for the main and then
just a white for skirting and trim. O... and I'm going to re-stain the deck a brown stain. Yay.

Cant believe this guy is going to be 3 in a few weeks.
And Zay is going to be 1.

Its funny how their birthdays worked out. Monday and Friday. Until they are old enough to want their own b-day party, we are just going to have it be one party in the middle. When D and I were thinking about having a second, I told D that I didn't want them to have the same month for a birthday. That they should each have a month that is all their own. But when we went in for my first appt, go figure, the doctor said the due date would be September 9th. Same day as J's. At least Zay came a earlier.

But ya know, I kinda like having them in the same month. Maybe this is how we should plan all our kids. Have them all in September. Then it'll become the "Birthday Month" haha.

They are both getting so BIG.
I know I've said this a ton... but... I'm going to really try and update my blog from now on. I don't see why I shouldn't be able to make time for it. Anyways...

We just got back from Nevada. Now it's off to Utah on Wed. Seems like we're never home now. Our ward is going to start sending the missionaries in fear we've gone inactive. Ha ha. I really can't remember the last time we last went to church in our ward. We've been going to family reunions, work, and more family reunions. But it's all been good. I'm SO sick of traveling food!

Our plans keep changing with moving and everything. But D says we need to be out of here by winter, says he can't take another winter like last. So we might be moving pretty soon. D's looking at a coaching job. If we don't go that way, then it's off to somewhere he can get his Masters.We're just so undecided right now. But what we do know is, is that we need to get doing something. Wish us luck.
