Austin's Kindergarten Graduation

For those out of town, here is a couple of videos of my little man graduating from KINDERGARTEN!!!  I'm so proud, and of course I cried... could be pregnancy hormones. :)  Why can't kids just stay little forever?

Back to normal

I think my life has come back to some normalcy... I think... Maybe.   Hopefully.  (knock on wood)  :)  We all live under the same roof again, our OWN roof, and since school has started back, I'm back on schedule.  I'll tell you though, the past two years have been rough, and when I thought that it was over, and it couldn't get worse... I got proven wrong.  But I made it.. I'm back... and a little stronger I think.  Plus now I have an "agent" workin for me on the other side. :)  But it I wouldn't have made it without Heavenly Fathers help, care, and love.  Okay nuff said about that.  I don't think I have enough room to make up for 2 years on here so how bout I start from now.  :)  We moved into this sweet house that we are renting until the short sale is finished (all for a very low price of.... $650 a month!)  

Kevin's job is going great.  We moved in, got the kids registered for school, just in time for the kids to make friends before starting.  We have GREAT neighbors here.  Its a nice little tight community, FULL of kids!
When school hit, Madison started 2nd grade this year, and Austin started... KINDERGARTEN!  


I cried when they both left me.  Now its just me and Hannah at home... must be time to start thinkin about havin another one.. LOL.  Can't get TOO comfortable.

Here's Austin talkin about going to school.
In other news, my church ask me to serve as the second councilor in the Primary Presidency.  Fun huh?  There are around 150 kids in primary and nursery!  Wow is right.  I'm excited about it.  The hardest part now, is trying to remember, who is who. :)  I got the neighbor kids down, so that makes only 140 to go! lol.  
video
We've had lots of fun swimming in Grandpa's pool this summer, and Austin is quite the acrobatic now.  He'll do just about anything.  Madison and Austin both taught themselves to swim this spring when we went to Las Vegas.  That has been nice.  Now Austin can do front flips INTO the pool, swim under water, open his eyes under water, and other daring things.  Madison is a bit more like me... more reserved when it comes to danger. 
Austin's in that age now that he's learned to do a ton of things all within a short period of time.  Swim, tie his shoes, Ride on two wheels, and best of all he lost his first tooth. 
video
He is still so proud of his lost tooth, he shows it to anybody who passes... yes even strangers walking on the street.  He bought an ice cream with his tooth fairy money.  He tells the strangers that too.  :)

Speaking of ice cream... if that darn ice cream truck comes down this street one more time... I'm going to strangle him!  Don't you know the kids will want it??  Don't you know that they will beg and plead and NEVER leave you alone until you have given them a dollar for the ice cream truck.  Thats 3 bucks for me each time!  Dear Ice Cream Truck Man,  do you have to come EVERY FREAKING DAY???  I"M BROKE NOW!  It was a fun at first... but if I hear your truck play another round of skip to my lou again, i'm shootin out your tires.  Thank you - Yours truly, Crazy Mom. :)

Well thats all the updating that I can think of for now.  On a side note, I finished the last book in the Hunger Games series tonight.  I'm not sure if I liked it or not... yes I got everything that I wanted in the end, but for what cost....those that have read it, what do you think?

My Life Now

Mostly my life consits of cleaning the house for people to come see it, sewing little cute things for the girls, reading, traveling (back and forth from SLC, BLAH) and going to the beach. I love the beach. No its not really a beach like on the ocean, but its on a lake and there's sand all around it. Close enough for me. :) The kids like the water and the sand, I like the sun. LOL. Its so relaxing. We had a good 4th of July and I celebrated my 26th birthday on the 3rd. Kevin surprised me by coming back for my birthday. He didn't have off, so he came back for the morning, and then left in the afternoon. We ate birthday cake in the morning and I got a SURGER! It was awesome. I also went to the beach with the kids and then went back that night for Fireworks. That was so fun. We were actually on the beach this time, and it made all the difference being able to see it up close. Then on the fourth of July we went to my inlaws for a parade and for a bbq that got rained out. Rained out is an understatment. Actually it flash flooded their town. I got proof. It was crazy. It washed away the road. When we finally got out, we went to the Pocatello fireworks, and then drove back to Rigby. I had a busy week last week, and I have to say that I am quite enjoying being at home doing nothing this week. (well not nothing, of course some peps are coming to look at the house all the time, so I have to clean clean clean.) But its good to be home. In fact, I'm going to the beach today! OOOh, I can feel the sun now..... skin cancer here I come. LOL :)

Pictures from my birthday, dont look too closely, I don't have makeup on, it was only 8 in the morning and I just woke up! The other picture is us waiting for the fireworks on the beach. It was so cool.




The kids waiting for CANDY from the parade. It was a good parade. It lasted 50 mins! Thats a lot of candy. :)

My cute kids... I made the girls dresses. I got the fabric from walmart. It only cost me 3.75 for the yard and a half that I got. You can't beat that for 2 dresses. I made up the pattern, so its a one of a kind, Vanessa. :) LOL We took this picture of the family at the bbq, right before the HAIL and RAIN came. After this, the ground was covered in 2 feet of water.


This is Hannah and her cousin. Theyre only 10 days apart. They have a love/hate relationship. Here they are loving. Next one of them wacked the other. :)

video
This is after the flast flood rain storm. All the rain ran down from the mountains and the little colverts couldnt keep up. This video is the road going to my in laws house. We thought we were going to be stuck there. The raging river cut away the road.

video
This video is of my inlaws neighbors house, they dont have a road anymore.



Waiting for the fourth of July fireworks. Austin cuddled up with Grandpa Buetts. Then the kids playin with Uncle Adam. Notice the groovy glow in the dark jelwery.

The wonderful beach. My Little Hannah diggin up a storm. Can't wait to get out there.

I'm Back

Ive been putting this off, until I can't any longer. :) Don't expect to much, my life is INSANE, but I want to start my blog again. YAY! So get ready... :)
