The Monster Truck's!!

~*~ The Monster Truck Show ~*~

Last night we got to go to the Monster Truck show in Pocatello! It was SO much fun! The boys loved watching the big trucks. We took Brandon's dad with us and it was nice to get to spend some time with him. We really love that man! Anyways, I'll let the pictures prove to you how much fun we had! I took a ton of pics, but just selected a few to post. Anyways, here you have them:

That's what we like to call "GOOD TIMES"!!!!

Quick updates of January and February!!

So first of all my Aunt Karen came to Idaho for a visit! We had so much fun! I just love her to death and can't wait to make a trip to Arizona to see her oh and yes model for her for some paintings she is doing! I love you My Beautiful Aunt Karen! Miss You!!

See these adorable, fun, bright, spunky scrubs! I am no longer allowed to wear them at work. That's right!! The hospital has gone to standardized scrubs!! Navy blue scrubs and a HUGE! EIRMC logo on the chest. Not my idea of fun, but o-well, come what may as long as I still have a job. I hope to cutify the plain navy scrubs soon!

Kaython got an academic award at school for Reading and Math! They were able to pick to two first graders for this award and he was one of the two. He is one if not the top reader in his class and he is VERY good at math! He is such a smart boy! I am such a proud Mama!

We got to go stay a weekend with my family at Tammie's cabin. We had SO much fun playing in the snow, eating treats, sledding, eating yummy dinners, sledding off the roof of the cabin, eating some more, playing cards late at night, eating lots of treats, and just hanging out together! What a blast. We always love going up to the cabin. Thank you Tammie!!!

I took my State Boards for my RN. This is me coming out of the building after taking them. When I went in there, there was no snow, less than an hour later and look at all this snow. So, we ended up going straight home rather than my original plan of going shopping afterwards. O-well. Do you see that worried look on my face...well you should; cause I was freaking out I had failed. I knew either I passed or I failed miserably. Anyways, long story short...I PASSED!!! I am now working as a Registered Nurse. I love it. It feels SO good to have finally accomplished it! Only now, I'm already thinking about doing my Bachelor's this fall. But we shall see what happens!

Utah Jazz Game!

Brandon got tickets from Melaleuca for a Jazz game and he took me with him! It was SO fun! We only had five minutes to decide if we wanted the tickets or not so we decided to take them and we had to be on the road in less than an hour so I hung up with Brandon, called to see if my Mom could keep Kelton, (she said yes) I ran Kelton up to Rexburg. In the meantime, Brandon got Kaython picked up from school and met me at our house, we ran and dropped him off at Brandon's sister Nicole's and we were on our way with two tickets for a dinner and the game and nice parking tickets, (we parked right at the building the game was in, well we had to walk across the street). We had a such a fun night! Our seats were on the front row, right down from the players and the coaches! It was so freaking awesome!!!

Tickets in hand and on our way!!

Sitting right down from the team!

Here we are! Enjoying the game!

It was so fun, we had people texting us during the game saying that they could see us on t.v. as they were watching the game that night.
I am so glad I got to spend the night doing something extraordinary with the hubby!
It was a good time! Thank You Melaleuca!!

Remembering Jeremy

January 22, 2011

I can hardly believe it's been a year since I lost my older brother Jeremy. I think of him and his family constantly and continue to pray for their comfort and understanding, as well as my own. Some days are easier than others, but I continue to find myself getting teary eyed at certain comments or memories of both him and my sister Crystal. I know I will see them both some day again, and as fast as time goes by, I am certain it will be sooner than later!

So, as for this post...on January 22nd Kris invited us all out to the cemetery to write messages on balloons and let them fly to heaven or to him. It was a neat experience and I am thankful that Kris would invite us to be part of it. She then served us hot chocolate and cupcakes. It was a bitter sweet moment; thinking that only a year ago I was writing his name in the sand on the beach of Hawaii.

One of the bundles of balloons!!

the Parkinson's gave him!

Kelton did not want to let go of his balloon!

And off they go; with a "We love you Jeremy!!

Jeremy, You are still in our hearts and You will continue to be! We miss you!
We love you! And we look forward to the day we see again!

Hunting Season!!

I somehow made time to go hunting w my hubby this year! I only went out w him a couple times, but did a lot driving around with him to go "look" for deer. Towards the end of his hunt he finally got his deer! As you can see he is pretty proud of himself! We ended up butchering it ourselves (that was gross and what a mess). Nasty! But we made some amazing breakfast sausage and brats with some of the meat (they don't have that venison taste)!

Here we are in our full hunting gear! Matches me perfectly, right?

Aaawww! So cute! What great way to spend an evening together!

Just a quick drop in!

I know it's been forever since my last entry...I've been crazy!! School this semester is kicking my little (well, big) tushy!! But on the flip side and for the good news.....only 7 weeks left!!! I can do this!! It has been a very difficult semester. LOTS of homework and TONZ of studying! I am still working full time and I am still an almost full time Mommy! So, as you can imagine; I am stressed to the max! Bottom line is: as soon as I get done w school, I will be back on here full board! Until then, just wait patiently for me, please!

The Tale of How Kaython Looses His First Tooth!!
Once upon a time on Wednesday, August 18, Kaython was visiting his Aunt Tammie and Uncle Zack while his Mommy was at a funeral. Kaython had a loose tooth for a couple weeks but it wouldn't fall out on it's own, and he was too scared to have it pulled. Well, when his mom had gotten back from the funeral, he told her that he wanted his Uncle Zack to pull it out. His mommy was stoked about that (let the uncle be the mean guy). So, his mommy decided he needed one last picture of him with all of his teeth.

When the time came Kaython almost backed out, but then he got really brave and decided to let Uncle Zack pull it. Uncle Zack had a hard time getting it out because it was so slippery, but as soon as he got a piece of tissue the tooth popped right out!

At first Kaython was smiling and thinking it was cool, but then he realized it started bleeding so he started to cry. He cried for a couple of minutes, until his mommy asked him if he wanted to call his dadddy and he called his dad and got so excited he quit crying. But he had quite the hole from where the tooth was.

The tooth was already to go under his pillow for the Tooth Fairy to come!

But first, Kaython had to write the Tooth Fairy a letter because he was very concerned if the tooth fairy is a boy or a girl because fairies are girls, but he just saw the movie The Tooth Fairy and thinks they are boys now. His letter read:

Dear Tooth Fairy,

Are you a boy or a gir? I love you.

Love, Kaython

The Tooth Fairy must have thought he was a great kid because he got a note back and a one dollar bill with it. His note read:

Dear Kaython,

Thank you for your letter. You are such a sweet boy! There is more than one tooth fairy. There are several tooth fairies and they are both boy and gir. I love you too kaython!!

Love, Your Tooth Pairy
