I have been a horrible blogger this year. I still don't have the drive to post something great but I did want to share this video because it is too darn cute.

I was in Chicago over Mothers Day helping my sister who just had a baby so my Dave had my kids make this video for me. It makes being a mom totally worth it!

Typical Kid on Camera

So I have these videos of my kids. They make me laugh. The first one is so typical of a kid on camera. They are like a deer in the headlight. As soon as the camera goes on they shut down. The second on is you try and video one of your kids doing something cute and the other ones have to steal the limelight. Enjoy.

Winter Blues

So I have been a horrible blogger and I keep getting yelled at by my sister for not keeping up on my blog so I thought I would just give you a little run down of what we are up to.

We are SICK to death of winter. I can't even wait to just go outside and be done with runny noses. My kids play outside anyway. We haven't even been able to play in the snow because surprisingly Pocatello never gets snow and if we do it doesn't stay around very long.

Logan is doing awesome in school and is playing Jazz basketball. It is so cute. They have improved so much in just three games.
Paige is so ready for school she is just bored out of her mind and I can't think of things fast enough to keep her busy.
Ethan is... well he is Ethan. Naughty as ever and destroying and into everything. I can't WAIT until he outgrows this stage.
I am just trying to survive the last few months of residency. I can't wait for that to be over. Dave is the same. He is just on autopilot and is just taking everything day by day.

Winter when are you over?????

Happy 10th Anniversary

We are celebrating our 10 year anniversary tomorrow. We were married December 30th 1999. I can't believe it has been that long already. It truly seems like yesterday that I met this wonderful man on a crazy blind date. It has been an amazing 10 years. I wanted to share the top ten reasons that I love being married to Dave.

10. He is so funny and so fun to be around. I hate it when he is gone. When he moonlights or is on call overnight it is so quiet and boring. There is no sweeter sound than the garage door opening in the morning.
9. He is so compassionate. He truly cares for others whether it is his patients or my family or complete strangers. He would give the shirt off his back if someone needed it.
8. This goes with 9 but he wears his heart on his sleeve. My sisters and I always make fun of him for this but I love it. If it is a wedding, a talk in church, testimony meeting, or he is just feeling happy he gets all choked up. It is the cutest thing.
7. He is so frugal and smart with money. He could live in a cardboard box if that meant he had 10 dollars in his savings account.
6. He is so spiritual and knowledgeable about the gospel. He teaches me and makes me want to be better all the time. He is the most honest person I have ever met.
5. He can do ANYTHING. I when I say anything I mean it. He can do landscape, electrical, plumbing, build anything(like a house) or anything you can dream up, fix cars, do computer stuff I mean the list goes on and on. He also wins everything (which I find extremely annoying) It could be mini golf, or the wii and Xbox, to any sport or just good old board games, Dave is always the winner.
4. He is very smart. He did graduate from medical school.
3. He is a wonderful dad. He loves his kids so much. He provides for them, is an example to them, and loves to play with them. The kids favorite game is chasing game with dad. If Logan and Ethan turn out to be like their dad I will be the happiest mom in the world.
2. He gives the best advice. To me or my sisters you name it. He is always there to listen if you need him.
1. And last but not least, he truly loves me. He shows me and tells me that he loves me all the time. He is an amazing husband and I don't know how I got so lucky to meet someone like him. I don't think I could have dreamed up a better husband.

These past ten years have been the best of my life. Dave has made it all happen and we have three amazing children to show for it. It has been a lot of work and a lot of play and I wouldn't change one minute for anything. Happy Anniversary Dave. I love you.

Halloween was so fun this year. I am always interested in what my children finally decide their choice of costume each year. Paige changes her mind every year, and this year was no exception. She really really wanted to be Luigi from Mario brothers this year. She has been watching me and Logan play mario galaxy on the wii and saw a luigi costume at walmart. She wanted to be that so bad for like a month. She had it decided that Logan would be Mario, Paige Luigi, dad was to be Bowser, Ethan Yoshi and mom Princess Peach. Has anyone tried to find those costumes online? Not an easy task. I asked her "Paige don't you want to be a girl? You could be Princess Peach." She was not having it. Finally somehow she saw this dress that is a high school musical Sharpay dress and she decided she liked it but it had to have wings and pink hair so it was settled. When people asked her what she was she said "I am Hannah Montana" People looked at me and I just shrugged my shoulders. Logan was easy, he said he wanted to be something scary for Halloween this year so a five dollar cape and this is what we came up with. He loved it. Ethan well sorry kid when you are a third child you just get hand me down costumes. He didn't care, you can see how much he likes to dress up. It was a fun night and the weather was pretty nice for Idaho. I love Halloween and the kids scored some pretty good stuff that of course we have helped them out with. Can't wait for next year.

Cute Kid Pics

My friend Miranda takes the cutest children photos I have ever seen. I really needed so good pictures of Ethan because I haven't had them done since he was like three months old. But of course Ethan doesn't make anything easy. He was terrible and he wouldn't let us take any of him. We got a couple but the other kids did awesome. Mir and I kept laughing at Logan because he kept giving us a "Blue Steel" look in all of his pictures. I think he wanted to look cool. I love them and can't wait to see the rest.

The Happiest Place on Earth

We just got home from such a fun vacation. We took Logan and Paige to Disneyland. We left Ethan at home with family because he is still a little too young and crazy to take an a vacation like that. The kids had so much fun and Paige and Logan did too. Seriously Dave and I love to go to places like that. We loved the rides and made the kids ride everything. Paige didn't like space mountain at all because they transformed it into ghost galaxy for Halloween, but she was a champ and rode it three times with us (of course I had to cover her eyes the whole time) but she did it. We did that for three days on of the days we got to do with our friends from med school because they live in San Diego and it was so fun to see them. After our awesome yet exhausting three days there we went and stayed at our friends and went to the beach and even got to go on a date kid free. We had so much fun and I love to see med school friends because it always seems like no time at all has passed. It was so fun.
