Look what i found!

Here we are almost ready to go to MEXICO! I am so ready for the warm weather. We leave on Saturday and I am so excited!

This last week has been awesome! My brother Matt got home on Thursday and it was so much fun to see him again after 2 years. He looks great and has already gotten a lot accomplished in just under a week! He already bought a car, got a cell phone and is probably getting a job tomorrow! He is such a go-getter. So, please, let me explain these pictures for you. My family is a little crazy sometimes....well, most of the time! We are in public and we don't even care...I Love it! My brother in law John grew a real mustache and dressed like a Sherriff. He is so funny. Anyway-he brought a package of fake ones for all the boys to wear but us girls wanted to join in on the fun...and don't forget the babies!

Here are my cute mom and dad! They were so excited!

This is my pregnant sister kelli (with twins might i add), her husband John & their little one, Ella

Here he comes! He is the one on the left...look at that smile!!!!!

Here I am with him...SO FUN

Can you spot the real mustache?
Ok-so to say the least, we had fun! I am so happy to have my brother home!

What's Happening

I was just going through some of my pictures and found one of the outside of the house. So, since that has not been posted yet, i thought since you have all seen the inside, i would show you the outside. This is before all of the snow decided to dump on us in Midway, but we have a lot of work to do when the spring comes. It is going to be a muddy mess!

Doesn't that porta potty look great in front of the house? ha ha something kind of funny... Skylar and I just barely got all of our stickers out of the windows just this morning. There is always work to be done around the house and things as simple as that take a couple of months to get to, I guess!

Another thing that i have been so excited about is my little brother Matt to come home. He has been in Brazil on his mission and he comes home on Wednesday! We get to see him on Thursday because of the time it takes to travel here. Can't wait to see him!

Yesterday was my neice Ella's 1st birthday party and she had so much fun. She is going to be a big sister to twins! Kelli, my sister is having the babies in August, I think. So, she is going to have her hands full. Here is Ella a couple of months ago. Happy Birthday!

We are going to St George for Easter weekend with my family. My parents built a house down there this last year and it is definately something i look forward to! It is going to be a good weekend! This is a picture of the house when we went down in January

And one more thing. Mexico here we come. The weekend after we go to St George, we head to Mazatlan, Mexico with Skylar's family. It is spring break while we go down and it is insane! It's going to be fun!

This was in November 07

This is the Inn at Mazatlan-the place we stay

don't those drinks look good?

So, i know this is the longest post ever! But it was fun to get excited about everything! So, here is to Matt, Ella, Mexico and good times ahead!

I DID IT!!!!

Guess what everybody? I did it!! I really ran a half marathon. 13.1 miles! There should be nothing half about it. Someone needs to make a new name for it. How about the... i don't know. i can't think of a new name, but it is crazy! No, i really actually am really happy that it is something i was able to accomplish. When I got to the finish line i was sure i would never do another race. However, i find myself looking for another one that i could train better for and do again! Here is a link to my pics. Now keep in mind that these pictures are taken from someone sitting on the ground. (not the best angle) i look like a freakin cow! anyway-look and enjoy..... yeah don't worry an 80 year old man freaking passed me... it's ok though. good for him, right?
This month is going by so fast! We go to get Matt from the airport in 1 week! I can not believe it. My little brother is so awesome. i can't wait to see him!
Then the next week we go to Mexico! YEAH! I am so ready for it. Snow better be gone when i get back though!
ok, so here we are almost to the weekend. & it's a good thing too!
