A sad day . . .

The other day Russ told me he was going to try to sell his scooter. I think the next day someone came to look at it, and the day after that it was gone. Russ was in shock, it happened so fast and he wasn't sure if he really wanted to let his baby go. He loved that thing. But he felt good about saying goodbye to his mint green Stella. Before they picked it up we took some pictures. So here is Russ and his two babies. And I also added some pics of my Baby!

I love Halle's face in this one, pointing with her thumb up, too cute!


Wasatch Back

This last weekend was a crazy, fun adventure for me and 11 of my friends! We ran relay style from Logan to Park City. Yes we are crazy, but it was so fun, even though I had some major knee problems, and a few other girls in my car had issues as well, but we switched stuff around, (thanks Mary and Laura) and we made it! I have to say I am proud of myself and everyone that did it. Hopefully I can figure out what is wrong with my knees so I can do it next year and not be such a "Debbie Downer"!

Me and Laura before the race. (nice hair lacey, it's froliscious!)

The very first hand-off between Kate and Mary

My double pony, you know you're jealous!

That is me looking hot, ready to run. This was actually
Mary's 2nd leg, we switched because of my dumb knee.

Amanda and Kate, I was running and
they were having fun with my camera, love those girls!

My biggest Fans!

WE DID IT!!! Way to go girls!


Softball, Projects and the Cutest baby ever. . .

Russ has a mens softball team he plays on, we are both on a co-ed team and Russ also plays on a baseball team. So we are taking Halle to different games 3 times a week.Go Daddy!!!

This is Halle's friend Reiker, they were chearing their daddy's on!

ok so this Pig clock was the clock i made in 8th grade shop. I just revamped it a little.

Just a little frame i whipped up.

She's just cute.

Daddy found her getting in the fridge while mom was making dinner.

She's so sneaky!



So i finally did it. I got back down to my pre-pregnancy weight. I am not saying that it is my ideal weight, but I am still proud of my accomplishment. I don't have a scale at my house, and I was at my Mom's today and she has a couple, it felt really good to get on the scale and see the number 135. I am sure you think I am crazy about posting my weight, but I feel like it isn't the number but how you feel about yourself that matters.


don't let your spouse drink and sleep

So the other night I woke up grabbed my water bottle and took a sip. It was a restless night of tossing and turning and not being able to fall asleep. I always have 2 water bottles next to my bed, because I get so thirsty at night. Well this night after I took my sip I layed there with my bottle upright on my stomach just being annoyed that I was awake, and thinking about who knows what, when all of a sudden I had cold water all over me. I had somehow fallen asleep while holding my open water bottle and it slipped out of my hand and got all over me. I was shocked and wet, and I was trying to make a bunch of noise so Russ would wake up and feel bad for me. Alas, Russ is a very heavy sleeper, so I didn't get the sympathy I didn't deserve. I wiped up what I could, moved the blankets so the wet part wasn't on me, and tried to go back to sleep. Moral of the story, don't lay in bed in the middle of the night with an open water bottle.



So I am a dork and just read "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" . . . yeah I know I am a major HP nerd. I just wanted something easy and fun, and that was it. Anyway it got me to thinking about how I wish I had a crazy awesome imagination to be able to write stories and just come up with something totally fun and different. I am so impressed with JK Rowling's creativity and talent for writing. I don't know how she can make me feel like Harry is my friend, and I just want to escape to their world. Well I won't bore you with my nerdery (hey at least I can make up words, that's a start on my creativity) but I was just thinking about it, and wondered if you had any ways you express your creativity and or imagination.

P.S. Thank you all for your nice comments on my baby's photos.
