Our Christmas FHE, treat!

Well for Zacks birthday he got a gift card for Red Lobster from my Mom. We decided to save it for a special Christmas FHE date night! The kids are total fans of sea food and love their cheddar bay biscuts. We had a lot of fun together there and had our lesson on the way home about Charity and how its means Christ like love. I tried to explain that is why we donate food to food banks, blankets to the homeless ect. and preform service. The best part of having FHE is when one of your kids has something sink in and says it all on their own. I was taking Chazz to preschool and the radio said something like "so what is Christmas all about any way", in a jingle. Well Chazz took that as a direct question to him and awnsered "It's about Jesus's Birthday...duhhh"....It gave me a real chuckle that he knew why we celebrate Christmas because he has a very hard time sitting in FHE, and I loved the added bonus of the duhh, like everyone should know!!!! Having kids to teach about the Gospel and Jesus Christ is a great responsibilty, at times challenging. yYet laced and sprinkled with loads of Laughter and Fun!

30 week belly shot!

I thought I was big at 25 weeks, well now I am thinking that was pretty small compaired to now! So here is what I look like at 30 weeks almost 31.....wow this is flying by!---By the way Zack is plowing so this was a perfect oppertunity to post this with out any harrasment! (j/k)

8-10 weeks left to go!!!!

I had my glucose (gestational diabietes) test on tuesday, I still havent heard anything back yet sooooo, I guess no news is good news! I also got my rogram shot, which I will probably have to get after the little one is here too ( its a shot I have to get because Zacks blood is positive and mine negative). I am so glad that the Holidays are here, its totally takiing my mind off of the pregnancy. I have found that not finding out what the sex is of the baby really has been a $ saving decision, I am guilty of buying things that I really dont need at times and this is really taking the urges out of it! The nursery still isnt ready but I am not worried about it Zack still has 2 months and he is great with tools and has an eye for remodeling. I am really feeling that its another boy...But I think I will cry harder if I hear that we get another little Girl! It would be nice to break the boy streak, for Zyans sake anyway( I think Zack would agree, but Zy wants to remain Queen of the Boys!) Post me a comment on what you think it will be, it will be fun to see what others are thinking/hoping for!

Was Sunday "ON" or not????

I missed some of you guys last night! We were hoping that it was going to be a full house at Granny and Grandpas. Although we did love spending time with those who were there....We love watching Brock crawl around and chew on things. It only reminds us of what is to come (YIKES!) Well anyway until the next "ON" Sunday!

26 week appointment!

I had my Doc appt yesterday. Everything looks fine, My uterus is measuring 29 in( i guess). That is a bit bigger than where I should be but, He said that its okay. I am now 19 lbs heavier than my first appointment, and I should gain about 14 more lbs (please please please let it only be that!!!!!! hahaha) I go back in 2 weeks for my glucose tollerance test to see if I am developing gestational diabieties. I think I am fine though with that. I asked him about my mood swings and crying spells and he told me to see if I could go with out taking a med, it would be better for me and the baby if I didnt. I also told him that I am regreting not finding out what the sex is of the baby, he offered to let me know right then!!! I told him I would think about it and let him know at my next visit. Other than my psychoness from the hormones, my back is aching, I am tired a lot and I will admit it, I am not as good at cleaning up as I usually am. My friend gave me the rest of this funny cheer from High School that keeps making me laugh as I tweek it for me being pregnant:

My back is aching
My pants too tight
My bootys shakin from left to right( the new 20 lbs of it!)
My socks are on ( its getting harder to do though!)
My do is done ( In a pony tail )
Get it on (uuuuhhhh, not so much)
Right on, right on!

So here is my version:
My back is ackin'
My pants too tight
My booty shakin from left to right
cant put my socks on
I am almost done
snore on and on and on!

I could probably make some more up too:
I peed my pants
last time I coughed
gettin hard to take my coat off
the heart burns here
my tums are gone
time drags on and on and on!

My lovely baby bump!

I havent posted my tummy pictures in a while because Zack teased me about it. But he is camping tonight so he cant poke fun!!!(hahahaha) I am 25 weeks along so far, this is what mybabycenter.com says about this stage. Head to heels, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. Her weight — a pound and a half — isn't much more than an average rutabaga, but she's beginning to exchange her long, lean look for some baby fat. As she does, her wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and she'll start to look more and more like a newborn. She's also growing more hair — and if you could see it, you'd now be able to discern its color and texture. I have my next Doctors apointment next tuesday for my 26 week check up! I hope the Holiday Season helps me forget how much longer I will have to remain in the state of pregnancy!!!!!

For FHE last nigt our activity Zyan picked was to paint! She got out the paint and paper, plates and cups, it was a lot of fun.........UNTIL....We all got a little out of control and paint ended up on faces! We all decided to make beards and mustachs like Daddys! However I really didnt want to participate in this but Chazz is just so stinking persistant!!!! Thats how I ended up with the yellow mustach! We really enjoyed this fun time together!

Zacks Birthday!

This is 2 weeks late!!!!(just my style!) I wanted to write a little bit about our night out at the melting pot!!!!! We had so much fun together, the atmosphere was romantic it felt like we were alone in the restraunt. We got a fondue 4 course meal, it started with a cheese dip with bread and veggies and apples to dip, then we had salad, next was our main meal, it included pork, chicken, shrimp, lobster, salmon and steak with a variety of dipping sauces oh yes and veggies to cook in the broth too. (the meat you cooked in a broth right there at your table). We finnished off with a desert fondue and zack choose a white chocolate dipping sauce and there was strawberries, pound cake, rice crispies, marshmallows and cheese cake to dip! Wow was this meal satisfying delicious and really entertaining. We got there a bit early at 4:30 and we didnt get done until 7pm! We decided to skip the jazz game and just go hang out at home. I hope Zack enjoyed his birthday(I know I did!!!hehe)-----The only draw back to the restraunt is the price!!!! I will definatly save up to go again! for the 4 course meal+drinks+tip, expect to save around 125.00---for special occasions totally worth every penny! I almost forgot the other news from Nov. 1 Zyan lost her second tooth while eating a cookie!

Kindergarden Halloween Parade!

Zyan got to wear her costume to school today for her Halloween Party and Costume Parade. I love the cute picture face she always makes. My camera was a little slow as the parade came at me so fast, I had to take a picture of her in the class room! Chazz didnt want me to leave him out from the post either so he smiled his best in his Halloween clothes! Happy Halloween!

Thurs. Oct 30

I love Zyan so much!!! Our life would be very dull with out her! Last night I picked her up from her dance halloween party, which was so much fun for her. She started in on the treats before we got home(which is like a 5 min. drive at the most). She choose to chew a laffy taffy and her tooth was pulled loose! Its the one right next to the one she just lost on the bottom. Needless to say the night was filled with tearful concerns about how she will never be able to eat again, and how her mouth will fill with blood, etc. etc. etc. By 8:00 I was so glad it was bed time!!!! In addition to all the fun we had with another loose tooth we carved our halloween pumpkins! The girls did one together and the boys did one together, Zyans jack-o-lantern was created in her likeness, missing 2 bottom teeth and Chazz had to make his SCARY!!! We are all excied for Halloween here and to spend it with the Hinckley Family!

Zack's 32nd Birthday Party!

On Friday (Halloween) we are going to celebrate Zacks birthday. We will have a Chili dinner at our house and then do some fun Halloween stuff, like trick-or-treating!!! Bring your costumes and an appitite!

22 Week Dr. Visit!!!

Well everything went really well. Well except for the fact that I gained 6 lbs in one month so far 12 lbs total!!(I hate french fries, cheesecake, candy bars and all the sweets I ate for doing that to me.) So that means in 16 weeks we will be able to meet our newest family member!!! Wow, time flys until the last couple months....then they cant go fast enough!(if its not adding up for you I get to have the baby 2 weeks early!!! SO LUCKY!)
Then I had a Ortho appointment, and got to see Bethany(which is always a treat!). I got a power chain on the top which is giving me a huge headache! I just need 2 of my bottom teeth to rotate and then I can get a move on with a stronger wire on the bottom and elastics. I cant wait to be done with these braces and the cuts they make inside my mouth!
Zyan has some special news, she is having her room painted! Right now she has 1 wall that is bright purple, 2 walls will be light pink and one wall with butterflies and flowers she was given by Aunt Cali! I think it will be awesome when its all done, and I get the purple paint off of the white celing!(OOPS.)
That is all our news for the last 2 days.

Washer and Dryer!

Hello everyone. This is a lame post, but I got a new washer and dryer(yeaaaa I love them!) So basically I was posting this to see if anyone one knows of anyone looking for some. I posted on craigs list today but If anyone wants them we will sell em for $150.00. I just need them out of my basement so zack can get started on my craft closet, so I can free up the nursery for paint etc. etc. etc.

Toothfairy Time!

Zyan lost her first tooth this morning while eating her pancakes! She was scared at first because she bit it. Then she freeked out when her mouth filled with blood from the tooth. I had to explain that it was normal and that it would stop. She was so excited she tried to call Granny Goose right away, since she was already at school she decided to call Aunt Erin, then Grandma Nebraska. Right now she just asked if Granny was done with school yet! 5 years old and lost her first tooth!

Burnt Hair!!!!

I tried to crimp my hair today and totally burnt off a whole section in the front!!! It smelled so bad! I was just crimping the top layer so its the top layer right in my part. Needless to say I was a little ticked, but there wasnt anything I could do about it either, whats done is done, so I choose to laugh about it. Anyway from this experience I have thrown that iron away and found a new way to part my hair, it looks like a comb over slightly, but i guess in a way it is! I found this out when i was brushing my hair and it kept coming out in my brush like I was having chemo treatments, sad I know.

Nebraska Trip

Zyan Chazz and I went on a weekend vacation to Omaha, Nebraska to visit my side of the family. We traveled 6 hours on Wed Oct 1 and 8 hours on Oct 2, finnally arriving in Omaha at 6:30 in the evening. It was so much fun to watch the kids interact with thier Grandma Nebraska, Aunts Heidi and Holly and their cousins Sabrina, Sierra, Sutton, Tyler and Trevor. The kids loved being at Grandmas house because their were friends there all day long(my mom has a daycare)! On Saturday All the Adults met up with my Grandma Dorothy and went out for lunch together, then we all took a trip downtown to the Omaha Childrens Museum to play. After that I went out for the night with my highschool friends to dinner and a pub that had a mechanical bull to ride(I didnt ride it, but I laughed at all those who did!) On sunday we took a trip to the Omaha Henery Dorley Zoo! What a magnificent Zoo it is! It gets even better each time I visit. They seem to always have a new indoor attraction. On monday I went out for cheesecake with my oldest sister Heidi, Holly had to work that day so she couldnt come. Then we awoke on Tuesday for the longest drive of my life!!!!! The trip totalled 16 hours with food and potty breaks included, I was so exhusted! I swear I will never drive that all in one day alone again!!!! But who knows anything is possible!

Chazz has just started a pee wee soccer! He had his frist game on Thursday and It was so stinking funny! All of the kids run at the ball at the same time and they are pushing and kicking to get at the ball. Chazz is suprisingly pretty good at breaking away frm the group with the ball and in the Thursday game almost scored 3 times, he was just running too fast to redirect his body/ball towards the goal. He ran so hard and was so tired after the game. Also he was sad because none of his balls made it in the net.
Today however was a different story! Chazz had 5 goals!(Only 3 counted). He was fast and agressive and he made the goals! He was so excited and happy he did it he would throw his hands up and shout for joy. He is learing about team work and that its great when anyone on his team scores not just if its him.
Anyway here are some of the pictures from the game, and of chazz crying at his first goal attempt of the day, good thing his luck turned around.

Lately I have been a food storage junkie! I loved the case lot sales this month and I am glad I have 1 more week left to stock up on things at great prices. Last weekend one of the Brothers in my ward gave me a flat of blackberries. Boy did he open a can of worms for me! With in an hour I had them all cleaned and seperated, bad(garbage), o-kay (syrup and muffins that day!), really good I froze and planned on making jam. Well then on Wednesday our neighbor Alma gave us a Huge grocery sack full of peaches from her tree! I immediately thought of more jam, and peach cobbler and peach crisp. So far I made cooked jam from that, which was an accident because I thought I was making freezer jam, so I had to hand that out so it could be consumed with in a couple of weeks( I had 9 cups of it). Then I care fully read the recipies from that point on and have sucessfully made 3 batches of freezer jam! 1 batch of peach (7 cups) and 2 batches of strawberry (10 cups)( I got the strawberries for $2 for 2lbs at Sams club. Needless to say I feel like I have had some help getting prepaired this month! What would you do with out great neighbors and great sales from our grocery stores!
I have planned to make next week some blackberry freezer jam, strawberry peach freezer jam and blackberry peach freezer jam! I just have to wait till my next grocery trip to get more freezer containers and fruit pectin!

Funny, Funny Zyan

So I don't have a picture of this funny thing Zyan did but who cares I just have to share it! We were delivering flyers/invites for a relief society activity on Wednesday, we each took one up to a house to hang on the door. So imagine I am 3 houses behind Zyan at this time. Mean while Chazz had a door that had a special nob and he was trying to put the invite to the dead bolt and was upset it wasn't staying where he put it. So now that a little time has lapsed and Zyan who is very bright still hadn't finnished putting her invite on the door yet. A little confused I walked over to see what the trouble was. Well the trouble was that Zyan had found the perfect place to sit down and sing! She was belting out a Cinderella twisted in time love song!!! I was having a hard time containing my laughter, because she was looking so serious, so I just said Zyan what are you doing? She was sucked back into the real world, and just smiled at me and said nothing and put the invite on the door and walked to the side walk. I really need to catch her on video camera one day!

Ninja Chazz

My absolute favorite thing to watch Chazz do is Fake Ninja fight/ Fake Lightsaber fight. His imagination is growing so fast! Today he went and found his Ninja Turtle (Raphael) Effects and was going to town. So I grabbed my camera. See if you can imagine the moves!

You be the judge.

So this Sunday the 17th I will be 12 weeks (3 months) pregnant. I cant tell if I am showing yet or not, but I wanted to have a record of what I looked like through the months at least until I am embarrased to take pictures of my tummy. So anyway you be the judge, showing or not showing that is the question?


Little Chazz finnally got to go to school!! He was so excited and he went with out a tear or fight, what a blessing! He loves his teacher Miss Heidi, and so far has gone 3 times!

No Cavaties!

Zyan will Start Kindergarden next week on August 5th. She is so excited. I had to take her to the dentist last tuesday and she was so good! No cavaties or stains, he said she has beautiful teeth! I am a Lucky MOM!


So on the 4th of July our family decided to have a mini vacation.....to Lagoon! Really exciting I know! We even made an over nighter of it at a hotel in North Salt Lake and bounced back the next day. Here are some Pictures of the kids enjoying some rides! It was fun watching the kids play together and really get along for a change.

Bike Parade!

On July 26 our ward had a breakfeast and bike parade in commemoration of Pioneer Day. It was so much fun eating all the yummy food and decorating and riding the bikes. The kids loved it even when chazz fell 3 times! Yikes.
