So much...

A lot has happened since I last posted I don't know where to begin! I will start in November...

*We blessed Bennett. It was such a nice day and we had all our family there. Thanks for all of your help!

*Thanksgiving was so LOVELY this year. I loved it. I had so much fun hanging out and playing games with my family. They make me laugh. We may or may not have started a roller blading gang called "we want to rock". Dale (my oldest brother) may or may not be the president. He is getting roller blades for Christmas :). Did I mention that he is 30 years old? Love it.

*So remember in my last post when I said "I'm going back"? Okay, so I'm not going Weber State at least. I changed my mind. I am a woman, I'm entitled to do so! I am going to be an apprentice to my sister in law who is a hair stylist. So, it's just like beauty school. I have to get 2500 hours, but she is going to teach me instead of trying to go to an actual school. I am so excited! I've always wanted to do it, but never felt like I could once I had kids. You know what this means...I'm going to need lots of people to practice on! Oh and yes Jill, I do believe I will still need to get some new school clothes :).

*My grandma Virginia Wursten passed away last Thursday. Yesterday was her funeral. She had a lot of hard things in her life. I don't think I could have been as strong as her given the circumstances. My aunt read part of her life story at the funeral. I couldn't believe how much I didn't know about her! Why didn't I ever ask her how she and my grandpa met? She will be missed.

*Bennett refuses to take a bottle. I cannot leave him for more than 2 hours. Does anybody have any ideas? I think I might lose it. I don't want to nurse anymore, but have no other choice at the moment. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

And now...for your viewing pleasure...

Lincoln was very shy with Santa, he wouldn't look at him or say a word.

We took Lincoln to Layton park to see the animal was magical!

He's a puzzle maniac. We do them everyday!!

He's getting so big!

I hate the rivalry, but Travis loves it. He's starting Lincoln early.

Sweet baby

I'm going back...

It's true.
Yesterday I went on campus and talked to an advisor.
I felt like a dork.
I felt like everyone was staring at me because I'm not 18 anymore and I have two kids.
I think I need to buy back-to-school clothes.

Brushing teeth

Last Sunday, I set Bennett on the floor in the bathroom behind me while I got ready for church. Lincoln came in too and began playing in drawers and cupboards. I wasn't paying a whole lot of attention to what he was doing until I heard a horrible choking sound from Bennett. I turned around to find Lincoln stuffing my makeup brush down Bennetts throat! I screamed and grabbed the brush. After I got Bennett to calm down I asked Lincoln (in a very loud tone) what on earth he was doing. "Brushing baby's teeth mommy". Of course you were....

I hope to have a good relationship with you again in the near future.
In the mean time.....could you just lie to me? That would be great.

Dear Mr. Football Inventor,

It is a nice game that you invented. My only question for you is...
Did you really have to invent so much of it???? I miss my husband.

That is all.

Big Photoshoot

My friend Annie West with Sweet Yesterday's Photography took our pictures last week. She does such a great job. She made my kids look so sweet and innocent...I'm going to pretend they are always that way!! Check out her photo blog on the "my favorite sites" list!

It's been awhile and I miss you...
I'm just not quite myself without you...
I've been thinking about you a lot lately...
and remembering the long nights we used to have together...
and our occasional day meetings...
However, given the choice between you, and these two little guys...
they win every time.
Still, I hope we are able to spend some time together again soon...
Don't forget about me!

All about Lincoln

Lincoln is at such a fun age now. He is doing and saying all sorts of crazy things, and he makes me laugh all of the time. Here is a list of things I want to remember about him at this age...

*He says an enthusiastic "hi" to strangers at the store. It's so fun to see peoples reaction, and they can't help but smile. Some people try to ignore him, but when they do he just keeps on saying it.

*He loves to "help" mommy and daddy with everything! He especially loves to help with the laundry. He sits on top of the washer and I hand him the dirty clothes and he throws each item in the water. He loves to name what each article of clothing is too (mommy's shirt, daddy's shorts, etc.). He also loves to sweep and mop, which means he drags the broom and map all over the house. He is a BIG helper! I just hope he still loves to help when he actually knows how to do it!

*He LOVES to take baths. As soon as we say the word he starts taking off his clothes and running in circles so excited. Wouldn't if be funny if we all reacted that way to our morning showers?

*He counts to 10. About six months ago Travis started counting to ten to distract him while he changed his diaper. Now, he loves to count, and it is still a good distraction!

*He absolutely HATES to get his face washed and nose wiped. I have to chase him around the house and wrestle him to hold still and let me do it. It is always very traumatic.

*He LOVES reading books and doing puzzles. We read the same books over and over, sometimes 10 times a day. He doesn't get sick of them. Also, he loves his puzzles. He is getting pretty good at them too!

*He LOVES to dance to "Love Lockdown" by Kanye West. Travis will turn it on for him and he goes nuts. He jumps and spins and runs around the couch. It's a great way to wear him out! I would post the cute video of him dancing, but Travis won't have it because he is dancing too...

*He calls me monny.

*He loves watching Special Agent Oso.

*His favorite thing to eat in the morning is oatmeal. He eats the whole bowl in like 30 seconds and then wants to help me finish my cereal.
*He LOVES juice. We can't go anywhere without his sippy cup of juice. If I forget it Travis and I really regret it. He will say "juice" over and over. I try to explain to him that we will get it when we get home. He says "otay" and then starts all over again with the "juice" whining. The boy needs his drinks. He is just like his dad.

*He thinks the entire world revolves around him, and the truth is mine does! He is so much fun, and keeps me laughing all the time. However, I must admit I do love nap time, and when 8:00 p.m. rolls around, I am not complaining!
What a funny little guy.
