Music Anyone?

This morning I was trying to clean my bathrooms and I noticed that Treyson had been downstairs for a long time, so I sent Ashten down to check on him. When neither one of them came back up, I got nervous and decided to go check. This is what I found.

The ipod was blaring "1985", and both Treyson and Ashten were bobbing their heads to the beat. My first response was to take it from them, but instead, I got my camera first. I was so proud of myself. I quess I am becoming a true blogger, because what ran through my mind was, "this will be a cute post". Yeah for me.

363 More Days!!!

Yesterday was my youngest sister's 15th birthday. I can't believe she is that old, mainly because I know that I am 10 yrs older than she is. Dally is one of the most amazing people I know. She is always involved in so many things, and she puts 100% into everything. She is only a freshman, but she plays Varsity soccer for Dixie high. She is very good! She high school rodeos and is just as good if not better at that. She is already beating most of the seniors in her events. She is a straight A student, and is very organized and works really hard on her school work. With everything that she is so busy with she still reads her scriptiures everyday. Dally is also a "social butterfly". This is the term my mom uses because she doesn't know what else to say about all of the friends, mostly boys that hang out around her. Today I went with my mom to pick Dally up from school and she told us that in 363 more days she will be able to date. She is already counting down. Thinking back, I'm pretty sure I did the same thing. Part of me is almost jealous of her life right now. You think its crazy and can't wait to grow up, but how much fun was being a teenager? I kinda miss those days sometimes. Although, at least I don't have to wait 363 more days to go on a date!!! Happy birthday Dally, I love you!

Gary Baby!

As some of you may already know, Gary Allen came to St. George the other night. He is a country singer and I have always liked him, but until the concert I have never loved him. The concert was so good. When he came out, our first thought was that he looked like a little punk rocker. He was wearing tight pants that flared at the bottom with flames and skulls down the leg and a tight t-shirt. He looked sooo cute. I was in love from the moment he came out. To give you some background. They had advertised that the band would be taping footage of the concert for his new airplane song's music video, so people had a lot of signs and stuff to hold up. Jared told me if I made a sign, he would leave me home. Well after the regular show, they opened up the floor for people to come down and crowd the stage. We had pretty good seats along the side, but when I saw people going down I made Jared go with me. He wasn't that thrilled, but I told him I could pretend to be young enough to shake it in front of the stage for one night. We got really close. Close enough to see that he was wearing black swede boots. My high school days of pushing my way through the halls came back, and we got right next to the stage. At one point if I would have jumped up, I could have touched his leg. The thought did cross my mind. I'm not feeling too confident about making the video. There were a few big girls in front of me, so I'm just crossing my fingers. Hopefully I will at least see my arms. I was wearing brown beaded bracelets for anyone interested when the video comes out. Because I didn't take my camera, I didn't get any pics of Gary upclose and personal.

Quarantine List

I feel like there should be a quarantine list posted to our door. I had to work last night, and while I was there Jared called and said he thought Ashten had a ear infection. She had been screaming for a while and complaining about one of her ears. Tylenol helped a little, but I decided he should bring her in to have it looked at while I was there anyways. We didn't want the Tylenol to wear off in the middle of the night, cause then we would have to make an official ER visist instead of the "unofficial" visit we could do with me there. Anyways, Jared brought her in and a PA looked in her ears and gave us a Rx for an antibiotic. When they left me I thought all would be well. Well, when I got home at 12:30, I checked on the kids and found Treyson in bed burning up. He was so hot it was uncomfortable for me to have him next to my chest. I took his temp and it was almost 102. So I gave him some Motrin and rocked him for a while to make sure he started to cool off. He finally did. When I made my way to my own room to climb into bed, I found Jared in a big heap underneath all of the covers. He was dressed in a t-shirt and pj pant, which is not normal for him at all, and said that he was still freazing. I wanted to die. Everyone in my family was sick in one was or another. Well lets just say it was not the best nights sleep of my life. One of my kids woke up pretty much every hour of so, and I wanted to sweat to death. There were so many covers. Now that it is day time everyone seems to be feeling a little better, but I really hope we don't have a repeat performance tonight!!!

Our Weekend Outing!!!

This weekend we went up on Kolob mtn camping as a family. We have been wanting to get out of town for a little while, so we were very excited to go. We had a lot of fun just hanging out as a family. The kids loved throwing rocks into the lake. Ashten was so upset that we didn't bring her suit so that she could swim, but Treyson just got too close and fell in. He didn't enjoy the water as much as Ashten thought she would. We even took our dog Heidi on this trip and she seemed so glad to get out of the heat as well. We made smoores by the campfire, but the kids only wanted to eat the marshmellows out of the bag; imagine that! On Saturday we took rides on the 4-wheeler through the little town of Kolob. It was such a cute little town. I wish that I had a second home up there.

Jared took up his little BB gun and he was determined to teach the kids how to shoot it. It was so fun watching them, and they did suprisingly well. After shooting for a while, they starting working on aiming. Treyson was so cute. He put his face next to the gun and closed his eyes. After they would hit the cup with the BB, they would run over to it and check out the damage they did. It was so fun to watch their excitement. We had a lot of fun, and I am so glad we have the opportunity to go camping. Buying a camp-trailor was worth it because of the family time it has created. I am so thankful for my husband and all of the hard work he does to help support our hobbies and the toys we enjoy!
