Merry Christmas!!!

Yeasterday was Christmas it was great! I had to get Kendal up and I told her that Santa came and she asked me if he already left. She was so sad that she didn't get to see him. I thought that was so cute. Kendal had a great day she was so excited she got a Pink paino and her new baby. I will post pictures when I get a chance too. I got a new printer the Kodak Easy Share 3-in-1. I can't wait to use it. I am still really mad that stupid Neways blocked to blog site. Hopefully we will get a new computer soon so I can post at home.

This weekend started off great but didn't really go so well. Friday was awesome! It was the Neways Christmas party. They had a lunch over in Springville and then they gave everyone a card and it had a $200 pre-paid Visa in it and then told everyone to go home for the rest of the day so I was home by 12:15 and so I wrapped all the rest of my Christmas gifts. I am done Yeah!! But, then I started not feeling all that great. I slept most of Friday and Saturday except for when we went to see Santa at my mom's work. Kendal was so excited. I will post some pictures as soon as I get them from my mom. I forgot my camera. She told him that she wanted a paino. I guess it's a good thing that Santa already got it for her!

Thursday, December 13, 2007


So yesterday was a good day. I took half a day off to refinance our house and get a few last minute Christmas things picked up while I didn't have Kendal. I know it's not really last min but I have been done with Christmas for the most part for about 2 weeks. Last night was Kendal's Christmas dance recital. She did so good. I was a proud mom! They did 2 dances one to Let it snow and the other to Rockin' around the Christmas Tree. Here are a few pictures. They didn't really turn out that great but oh well. I also forgot to put in last week that I went to the Dr. on Thursday and everything is great!

It has been a while since I posted last. This last week has been crazy. Work has been busy and life in general has been busy. I tried to change my family picture and it is not working that is why I don't have the family picture up right now. Hopefully it will be fixed soon so that I can put it up. Tonight is Kendals Christmas dance recital. I hope that she dose good. It is going to be really cute. I will post some pictures of it tomorrow.

Wednesday, December 5, 2007


Well I finally got all of my sub for santa stuff wrapped and brought back to work. Kendal helped me pick out some of the stuff and didn't quite understand why she couldn't have all of the stuff. It was all for little girls. My mom and I kept telling her that it was for another little girl whose mommy and daddy didn't have any money to buy them things. Sometimes she was ok with that and other times she didn't really like that idea. But it was fun having her help me pick out stuff. I can't believe that it is already December. I swear that it was just Halloween. Oh well. Time flys when your having fun right???

It's Christmas Time

I am so excited for Christmas. It is getting so close. This week has been CRAZY!!! Thursday I took the day off because Mallory was sick and I didn't want Kendal getting it. We had fun running around and wrapping Christmas and Birthday presants. We have 6 birthdays between Thanksgiving and Christmas. December is a really busy month for us. Here are some pictures of Kendal and I decorating our tree. We had a lot of fun. Saturday Harley Claus was at the shop. Well it's just the Rickster.

Great Weekend!

This weekend was great. But... just not long enough. Like never coming back to work would be long enough. Thursday I woke up at about 6:30 and went and picked up Pat's mom and we went to the Kmart. Yes I went shopping on Thanksgiving. They had some pretty good sales. When I got home we made breakfast and watched Ratatouille and then the Thanksgiving day parade. Kendal really like the parade because Dora and Scooby Doo were there. Then we went over to the In-Laws for Yummy food. After we ate we played Boxers or Briefs. It is really fun. You just have to have a good sense of humor. Then we went to my mom's house for pie. I was so tired when we got home but Kendal was giving us a run for our money. I don't think that I went to sleep until about 11 and we started at 9:30. Well Jen punked out on me and didn't go but I left for my mom's at a little after 3. Our first stop was Walmart. I was really excited I got everything that I wanted without any altercations. But, I heard that a lady got knocked out at the ripsticks. We were out of the Walmart by 5:20 and on our way to Target. I waited in line outside the Target with my mom. We made my sister wait in the car. She had worked the night before. While we were waiting in line my mom and I saw some one drive in the parking lot with a baby in the carseat and we started talking about why do people bring their kids and babies to the sales. It's already hard enough to get around the stores by yourself let alone with a baby or a kid. I was talking to my friend and she was at a different Walmart at 3 and this lady had 3 kids there in their PJ's and was yelling at them for not listening and behaving. Hello you have your 3 small children out at 3 in the morning and you are yelling at them for not listening. We didn't have and good altercation stories this year. But... I have a really funny one about a lady that flat backed herself at the Target. Saturday I went to my sisters house and watched the COUGARS take down the Utes. It was great. Kendal wore here BYU cheer outfit and was so excited to cheer for the Cougars. She kept walking around all morning say GO COUGARS!! All in all it was a pretty good weekend. Just wish that I was still home in bed.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

I am so excited for the Biggest Feast of the year! I LOVE that I don't have to come to work for the next few days. I can't wait for the shopping! I have so much fun. My mom, sister and I always go. This year I invited Jen to come with us because she has never been before. We have such a blast laughing at all the CRAZY women. Walmart is the best because at 5 you hear all sorts of screaming and you know that the shopping has begun. We get in the car and just laugh, laugh, laugh. It's going to be a great weekend. Hope everyone has a great holiday.

I feel like I haven't posted in forever. I have been so busy at work. Katie and I are trying to get the archive room cleaned up. I haven't done the stuff over here for so long it takes me a minute to remember how to do everything. But, I am having fun doing it. I kind of miss it. Well only in some aspects. I can't wait for next Friday. SHOPPING!!!!! Yeah. I already have most of the stuff I want to get picked out. I am taking 1/2 day on Monday so that Pat and I can get our Christmas lights hung back up and get the yard ready for winter. Yeah!!! I am not sure why but, I am really excited for Christmas this year. Maybe because Kendal gets it. She keeps asking when Santa is going to be at grandma's work. She really wants to tell him that she wants a pink paino and a new baby with a carseat.

So this weekend was soooo fun. Friday I went to Park City with my mom and went shopping at the outlets. I got Kendal some great things for Christmas. Saturday Kendal and I slept in. It was so nice. Then Scott, Jen and I went to Wendover. Ate at the buffet at the Peppermill. We were so full when we left. We saw Bill Engval. He was so funny. I almost peed my pants. My sides hurt by the time we left. Sunday Kendal was so excited that her dad was home. She wouldn't let him out of her sight. My brother blessed his baby so we went to their church. It was nice not to have to teach my class on Sunday. I needed a break. Anyway here are some pictures from Halloween.

Happy Halloween

Yesterday was Halloween. I took the day off and Kendal and I spent the whole day together. We had a lot of fun. We went to Kendals dance and then over to Neways. Kendal scored big at the Daily Herald she even got $$$. A whole $1.50 but when your 2 that's great. We went to the Training Table for lunch with my mom. My sister invited us to go trick or treating at Novell with them. After that Kendal didn't need to go out. Her bucket was full. Pat worked at the club so it was just me and Kendal to hand out candy. She had so much fun giving it to the kids. We ate pizza and watched her favorite Peter Pan. I wish that I didn't have to work so that Kendal and I could have more days like that. Pat took my camera to N.C. so when he gets back I will post pictures from yesterday. Hope everyone else had a great Halloween!

Saturday I went to the BYU game with my mom it was fun. Sunday Jen came over and we did hair. She is going to be a GO-GO dancer and so I helped her with her wig and she crimped my hair. Did I already mention that I can't wait for Friday (the Halloween party). Other than that not much is happening in my world. I will report more when there is more to say.

Good News

So Today I was finding more songs to put on the blog and I found out that you don't have to copy and paste in the new URL some how it updates it for you. I thought that was pretty cool. Anyway I thought that was pretty cool so I though that I would share that with you.

Monday, October 15, 2007


This weekend was ok. Didn't really do that much. Friday night Kendal and I went to the store because Pat was not feeling good. I also worked on Ashley's shower present. Then I went to bed. I had a zillion things to do on Saturday before I picked up Katie to go to the shower. I went with my mom to Costco, Albertsons, and the dollar store with her. Pat came home from work and laid on the couch the rest of the weekend. I feel bad that he doesn't feel good. I guess it's a good thing that he doesn't have to work today or tomorrow. Yesterday Kendal and I went to my mom's for a birthday party. We always have a good time. I can't wait for the 28th it's our annual Pumpkin Carving at my mom's. It will be so much fun.

It's about to get all Stupid up in here!!!

So if you didn't watch The Office last night then you won't get it. But, it was so funny. So I hosted BUNCO last night and got nothing. Not a dang thing. But, it was so fun. Everyone was dressed up. I was a granny. I got a wig, mumu and some knee high socks from Jen and I got some glasses, a purse, and some sweet slippers from the dollar store. It was nice. Everyone looked great. I can't wait for the weekend so that I can just relax. I don't want to do anything but just sit.

This Week

Well this week has been busy. I have Bunco tonight so I have been getting ready for that. Last night I was cooking and cleaning until 10 last night. By the time I finally got in bed my feet were sooooooo tired. But, my house looks good. We finally got rid of the fruit flys. We were infested. I am not sure where they came from. But, they are gone. I will let you know the results of Bunco tomorrow.

This weekend was fun. Saturday I stayed home and cleaned most of the day and when Pat got home from work we went to Park City for the night. We had a free hotel stay up there. We went to dinner and rode the trolley and then we took Kendal swimming. She was so excited. We had a lot of fun. Sunday we woke up and got ready and went to Midway and took our family pictures. Scott and Jen and the girls came up and took pictures with us. We had a lot of fun with them. When I get the Pictures back I will post them. I can't wait to see them. Last night we just lounged at home. We watched Friday Night Lights. I love that show. It is one of Pat's favorites. Then we watched the Rock of Love Reunion. I was really mad after the show. Then Kendal and I painted toes. We had fun.

How it all began!

Well since Katie wanted to know I guess I will post my little love story.
The first time I met Pat... I was a senior in high school and had a boyfriend who I totally thought that I was going to marry. We were always together and I loved his family. So I was cheering at a wrestling meet and after my friend Laree saw him and said come over here with me I want to say hi to my brothers friend who just happened to be Pat. He had just gotten home from his mission and was helping coach the Orem High wrestling team. Then a few months later we went to St. George for a wrestling tournament that was one of the highlights of the year, he was there. I still had a boyfriend and was not looking at him in that way. Don't get me wrong I thought that he was cute. While we were there we went to eat at the Pizza Slut YUCK!!!! We were leaving and some girls pulled in the parking lot and were hitting on some of the wrestlers and they kissed one the kids on the team and someone made a comment that they were sure that Pat was a better kisser and so he kissed them too. My friends and I totally made fun of them for that. Then in March my boyfriend and I broke up. I was at my friend Laree's house and we were talking to her brother and I said that I though that Pat was cute. So his brother said that he would mention me to him and see what he said. Oh, by the way we had hung out a few times with a big group. So anyway we were suppose to go to a big party and eveyone pooped out and left Pat and I alone. I think that it was on purpose. So we went to a movie and then went and got a ZUKA Juice. It was called that back then. I took him home after that. Yes, I was driving. His friends picked him up. We hung out a few more times and then I was leaving for Cheer nationals and he went to the mall with me for a few thing and then before he took me home he kissed me. I was so excited. After that it was kind of on the DL because he helped coach the team. The head coach knew and he kept giving me a hard time because he was one of my teachers. After that we were always together.

What Happend Next?

Pat and I dated for almost 2 year before we decided to get married. There were alot of ups and downs. We broke up a few times and there were alot of tears involved. But... in March of 2001 we took the plung and he proposed to me. I think that my mom was going to kill us because we picked a date 6 weeks after my brother. We were married June 2, 2001. It has now been 61/2 years and we are still married. We have been through alot together. Losing my dad and two miscarriages. We have one beautiful little girl. As you can see from the posts below.

Today was Kendals dance. Her teacher is so cute she gave them little wings to dance with today. Kendal always has so much fun. Here are some cute pictures. Next week she is suppose to bring a baby doll so I think that will be really cute.

Timp Harley Softball Team 2007

Here is a picture of the Timp Harley Softball Team. Well... most of them a few left before we could get the picture. Tonight is there last night. Maybe they will win because it is Danny's birthday. Happy Birthday brother.


So I never updated from the weekend. This weekend was kind of great. Saturday I felt like I was running ramped all day. I went to one of my best friends little boys baptism and her three youngest were blessed. It was a great. Then I ran errands the rest of the day. Sunday we went for a ride. We were suppose to go over the Nebo loop but because of the weather on Saturday it snowed so we went around the lake. It was soooooo COLD!!!!!! I was mad that I forgot my IPOD. Don't usually go on a ride without it.

Wednesday, September 19, 2007

Dance, Dance, Dance!!!

So today was Kendals second day at dance. She did so much better. She is going to be a pro! I think that she understood what she was suppose to do. I can't wait for her performances.

Pat with the cow!

So we went to the State Fair over the weekend. We had a lot of fun. Pat, Kendal, and I stayed in Salt Lake Saturday night it was fun. At the fair we saw Cows, Pigs, Goats, Sheep, Horses, and Pigeons. Also, I forgot to mention that we saw a few mullets and femuletts. They are so fun to pick out. Kendal we to the Helping Hands Farm that they had there. She got to pick apples, plant a pretend seed and pick a potatoe, feed the cow. She had a great time. But... the State Fair was just not as big as I remember it. But... it was still a lot of fun. Finally I brought my camera to upload the pictures. So... here they are hope you like them.
