Hello to all, So I know that not to many of you will actually see this, because so many of you have given up on me, well as far as blogging goes. But I am here and still breathing. I was thinking about life and how it can seem so overwhelming, and suffocating. But then I went to the one place that helps me look at reality, and be grateful for my Savior, and all of the amazingly wonderful blessings he has blessed me with, NieNie! I don't mean to sound like a "Debbie Downer," but, there are definitely times in life when my chest feels so tight, and I can't breath. Times when all of a sudden there are so many emotions to deal with at the same time, it feels like a waterfall is coming down on top of me. Then somehow I find myself sitting down and reading what she has so sweetly and lovingly shared with the world. She is such an amazing example of letting her light so shine. Her honest and uplifting attitude is magnificent. To be able to go through such experiences with such unyeilding faith, and charity, is indescribably amazing! So here is to Stephanie Aurora Clark Neilson! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You have not only inspired me to be a better mother but helped me to laugh at those times when I just want to hide under my covers until my children stop screaming! Thank you for showing me how to love and flirt with my sweet husband. We have four kids of our own, and I dream of our lives being filled with as much love and appreciation as your family shows for one another.

So my sister Amelia and her husband Devin, did an amazingly HUGE favor for Phil & I!!!
They agreed to watch all four of our kids, for 3 days!!! to watch one kid is a breeze, two kids isn't to bad, three is HARD, and four is ABSOLUTELY PSYCHOTIC!!! Not to mention that they have their own sweet little baby girl who is only 8 months old.
Millie & Devin did an amazing job!!! My kids were happy and my house was beautiful. I highly recommend their services!! LOL! But to top it all off my sister went the extra mile and took advantage of a little photo opp. I just love these pictures of Aubry, they are like looking at her in a dream!!
Seriously my sister is an extremely talented photographer!! I highly suggest checking out her blog rylinphotography.blogspot.com
Phil and I went to Cali for a few days. It was so nice to just chill. We went to Santa Monica Beach, and it was so beautiful there. It was only 60 degree's but the beach itself was awesome. We did a little shopping at the outdoor mall, which rocked. Then we walked a street over and went down the cliff to the beach and flew our 10' foil kite. After that we skipped some rocks that I collected, and then build sand towers to protect our pebbles from the attack of the waves. LOL!!! It was seriously cute!! By then my feet were completely numb, so we walk up to the pier and got hot chocolate, and watched people on the carousel. When it started to get dark we walked back to the car and turned the heater on, so as to defrost my feet. It only took 30 MINUTES for me to regain full feeling in my big toe!!! But after that, we changed our clothes and I dolled my hair up, and we went to this really neat restaurant called BOA. It was REALLY yummy food, and the waitress even put our napkins in our laps, LOL!!! Seriously, that is a first for me. She acted like it was run of the mill, so it wasn't awkward for me. But you could tell it was awkward for Phil, even though he knew it was coming.
The next day we got to go to Disneyland, California Adventure & Club 33! My Aunt & Uncle are members of Club 33, its a really exclusive club inside Disneyland. So they offered to get us in to the Parks for free and then have lunch with them at Club 33, which is a 5 star restaurant. Let me just say that is one fancy pants club. We got to see Justin & Renae Alexander with their kids. They even had us cut in line, and go on a ride with them, which then happen to have technical difficulties, and we had to sit in the sun and wait for about 20-30 min. But we still had tons of fun with them. All together it was an amazingly awesome day!! Thanks Uncle Bob & Aunt Nikki!!!!

So I found this super cute blog that I think I might be in love with!! It’s called
The Benner Daily- http://shealynnbenner.blogspot.com/
They are having a contest to win some fabric, and if you know me, then you know that I am seriously, and dangerously obsessed with FABRIC!!! I love to sew, and I love to embroider. The fabric comes from a shop on Etsy called LanieJane . If your anything like me I get seriously tired of the same old, same old, at JoAnns. So here’s for hoping I win!!! Selfish…I KNOW!!!

Now, with that said. I would like to focus on a topic that I feel needs to be seriously addressed...! LUNCH TIME. What the junk? Why is it that somehow in the middle of the day all my energy magically gets transported from my body, into my children's bodies? Lunch time is when, I no longer have any brains and find myself wandering aimlessly through my kitchen in circles.
While my child follow me around saying..."Mom?..Mom?..Mom?..MOm?..MOm?MOM?MOM!!?" (I finally respond) "WHAT?...(this time calmer)..what?" (kids, almost in unison) "I'm hungry, can I have toast?" Mom,"no" Kids, "But why not?...well then can I have wheat thins?" Mom-"no." Kids-"But MOM, I'm hungry" Mom-"Well then, lets eat real food, like a sandwich." I then proceed to wander my kitchen aimlessly for about 10 more minutes trying to figure out how to make my brain start to work.
Seriously what is up with that? I'm sure some of you are thinking...well if you started your day with working out. Or even... If you ate more of this or that for breakfast... I know, I know, and those are very valid points. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh, some day I will be able to conquer the world, AND lunch time!! LOL!
