This week Utah celebrated Pioneer Day! So like all good Utahns we went to a rodeo! The kids loved it until Gwen dropped her flip flop down the bleachers and had a total meltdown. We saw the mutton busters and the barrel racers and the bucking broncos.And even 2 buffalo! It was a lot of fun!

Ain't she a beauty?

So remember how I broke my finger in January... Working out. Lame. After having 3 pins put in, that was THREE, I said, I've had multiple follow up appointments where the doc has told me it's possible I would need the joint fussed together. Well today, at what WILL be my last appointment, he told me my sweet little pinky finger will always look terrible and the movement will never get better. And technically he thinks it would be best to fuse the first joint together so it would be straighter and not have any more pain. And to top it off, he said he would also release the tendon in that finger so the second joint would move more than 20 degrees. Who needs more than 20 degrees of movement?! Come on!

A beach in Utah?

Why yes! I've been really missing the beach lately so we decided to head up to Pineview lake to celebrate the fourth of July! It was a little trashier than I thought it would be but the kids loved it! Brett and I got some royally awesome sunburns too, so it was a win win for everyone.

am I invisible

Brett asks me that a lot when he's had a bad driving day. I feel like that lately just in everyday life. Numerous calls and FB messages and emails and texts to people that just ignore me. If I take the time to reach out to you in one way or another, how about you be a descent human being and acknowledge it. It's not that hard. A text takes 2 seconds. An email take 3. A phone call, I know is asking a lot, but buck up, be an adult. And don't try and convince yourself that you are too busy. I have 2 kids and I work from home almost full time. I'm not too busy to acknowledge someone. Just asking for a little reciprocity in my relationships lately. So there.

PS- I know I'm not perfect and I occasionally forget to respond to FB messages... it's just happened a lot to me lately so I'm complaining. Sorry if I've snubbed any of the 2 people that still read this nearly dead blog! Love to you all, of course!

Hello Mr. Officer?

Today as I'm enjoying a quiet afternoon there was a knock at the door. Who could that be, I asked myself. Oh well of course it was the Davis county sherriff's office. They were looking for the people that used to own my house. Interesting. So my question is.... Did I buy a meth house?! And when you find the previous owners can you let them know they left their vibrator in my basement!

You are my Sunshine

A few months ago, we took away Gwen's binky. She actually threw it in the trash herself. Ever since then she's had a very hard time getting to sleep at night. She used to go right down without any trouble. Now it's a few hour ordeal.

First it starts with brushing her teeth and going potty. Next, we have to read her a book and say prayers. This is how it used to go... since the binky has left the building we have added a few extra steps. Now I have to rock her in my arms and sing to her. I start with You are my Sunshine, throw in a little I am a Child of God and end with Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star and maybe even a dash of Rock a by Baby. Then she lays down, we close the door and are done with it. Until the last few weeks she has started coming out of her room every 5 minutes or so for at least an hour. Sometimes 2 hours.

This week things have changed again. Now she requires that her door be left open and her lamp be left on. That help keep her in her room for 2 days and the coming out every 5 minutes started up again.

Tonight, after I put her down for the fourth time I heard her singing all of "our" songs. She drives me insane most of the time, but hearing her little voice sing I am a Child of God...? COME ON!!!

And now she is screaming because she has to go to bed.... the magic is gone.

Is it over yet?

The knee surgery went well. I'm sick of the discomfort already. Turns out I have significant arthritis and should expect a knee replacement in the next 10-15 years. I want to thank my mother for this!

I'm fallin' apart!

First, I broke my finger on my leg while working out and required 3 pins to repair it. It still doesn't bend, 3 months later. Pictures are on my other computer, so you are spared from that nightmare.

Now, my knee is screwed. I get to have knee surgery next Tuesday. I thought working out was supposed to make me stronger and better.... 

Can't wait to share some awesome post knee surgery pics!

A day with baby animals.

Too much has happened to even begin to update. So I'll just skip to these cute picture.

We tried to go to the zoo last week but when we pulled up the line was so long I thought we were at Disneyland. So we went to This is the Place. They have an awesome petting "zoo". The kids loved it.

She wanted to ride the pony. She cried in line because she wanted to be on the pony so badly. Then she got on the pony and immediately brokedown and wanted off. So like the good mom I am, I took a picture first, then got her off.


Such a happy family. I left the house in my workout clothes that day. I looked awesome. Sweaty and totally gross. Maybe that's why they look so happy... stinky mommy.

Yep, we bought it.

Alright, alright! I'll post something to this abandoned blog!

So we bought a house. It's awesome. Then I quite my job.... hopefully we get to keep this house! HA!

Here's a picture of the outside. We closed on Halloween, Brett was Star Man, he looks creepy.
