I've Been Tagged

I have been tagged by that loving sister of mine (I only have one so I have to keep her happy). The rule is I have to write 7 facts about myself. I am not going to tag anyone so do not stress but will do my duty. Don't expect much for any other tags though! I thought this one would be a little worthwhile.
1. I talk to my mom and my sister EVERY day (most days several times a day) except for a seldom Saturday or Sunday and I LOVE it!
2. I whistle at my children and husband when I can't get their attention by talking or raising my voice (it beats yelling and stamping my feet).
3. I love living in Utah (Davis County rocks!:).
4. I could live on the beach (yes, this does NOT go well with living in Utah).
5. I love to exercise.
6. I have terrible eating habits and ZERO self-control with food, especially chocolate.
7. I thought I wanted boys when we decided to have kids but I am SOOOOO glad we have girls. I don't know what I would do without my girls!

Special Needs

You've all met our children's parents. Its quite obvious there are special needs there and those things are hereditary so it was no shock to see this in our youngest. Actually the goggles are from laser eye surgery I had in July and Brit was quite proud once Granna got them on her!

Halloween Recap

Halloween was so much fun this year! By night's end Brit was saying "Trick or Treat" which really sounded more like a lot of Ts with a long EEEET at the end, it was cute. Charlie still has candy (given her parents this is nothing short of a miracle!) in her closet, in the kitchen cupboards and she tends to hide any baked good a neighbor brings over in our chest behind the sofa. We started festivities early and painted pumpkins one night and carved others two nights later. The girls love their pumpkins and because I'm a bit of a scatter brain the painted ones are still by our front door (Brit brings hers in every day but the paint is so thick it keeps dropping clumps everywhere). Don't let the dog ose fool you, Charlie was a butterfly and Brit was a hatless witch. It is so fun to be parent!

Under Construction

Dear family and friends,

My sweet and slightly impatient sister got so tired of waiting around for me to get my act together that she finally created my blog for me (too bad she doesn't live close by, maybe there's a chance it would work on housework!). Then a few weeks later she got so sick of my blog being blank that she added some pictures. I'm just testing her to see how far she will actually go with this!

For any of you who watch The Office and saw the season premiere a few weeks ago you will understand that Dunder Mifflin's website had a little construction worker with the words "Under Construction" on their website for years...that may be what you are going to get with my blog unless Nat keeps stepping in. It is a goal to get the thing up and functioning (all on my own) by years end. I have to take these types of things one step at a time. The worst part is I'm not really THAT busy I just don't seem to get around to it.

Love you all and thanks for visiting my pathetic (no offense Nat) blog.
