Pre Pre-school

Jordan had a pre-school get to know your teacher day today, he was excited about it all day but when we got there he was very shy and quite. Dan and I along with G-ma Ann and G-ma J went to meet his teachers and walk around and get familiar with the school. Jordan has his very own locker for his school bag and jacket along with supplies for the year. I think Jordan will do very good at pre-school and I think it will help that he has his friend Ayden that is going to be in in class(hope they don't wrestle ha ha!!). Jordan will start pre-school Sept 4th and go Tues-Thurs mornings, we are very excited for him to start this new adventure.

Let the packing begin

We are told that we will be getting the keys to our house August 28th and so I started packing this weekend, I ran to like a million stores trying to get boxes and came home and just packed and packed. So we really could move in over Labor day weekend but Danny will be at convention for work all week long so I decided that it would be good to pack things now and over the week and then Sep 1st we will be all set to go and just pack up and go, plus I can't miss Swiss day this Saturday. We are hoping to have everything moved in no later then Tuesday the 2nd. Another crappy with Dan being at convention is that we can't really paint before we move in and I can't stand white walls so I'm trying to come up with a way to go tape the walls Thursday night and paint Friday but I still need to pick paint out and find a babysitter for Friday so I can paint without worrying about the boys.

Our new House

YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!! We got the great news last night that we got the house. I can't even tell you how perfect this house is for us, location and neighborhood is great and the house is in perfect condition. I'm already picturing in my head how I want to decorate it and what I will look for at Swiss Days, this is a 3 bedroom 2 bath with an awesome theater room and another room to make a 4th room and 3rd bathroom, check out the website for pictures.

We are told that we can get all the paper work and everything taken care of by August 30th and will plan on packing really soon so we can be out of our apartment by Sep 5th at the very latest. It will be very hard for me to move from these apartments because we have lived here for 5 years and for the 5 years I have had the greatest pleasure of living right by my mother in-law(and brother in-law and Dan's cousin) my mother in-law Ann is the best mother you can ask for, people use to ask me do you like living so close to mother in-law? and every time I tell them I wouldn't have it any other way, I can't even tell you the countless times Ann has helped us out no matter that we needed I will miss her very much and I'm sure I will have withdrawls and cry at night. We are very excited about this big step in our life, we feel very blessed and so lucky to get this wonderful house and also the arrival of our baby boy due January.

Jack Johnson concert

Tonight Dan and I and a few of our friends(the Anderson's, Starley's and Baumann's) went to the Jack Johnson concert and it was AMAZING! I have always liked his music but man he knows how to put on a fantastic concert, I believe about 20 songs and they were all great. Jack was starting a song when all of the sudden he stops and says man that totally messed me up and then he tells the crowd that a guy from the mosh area yelled I want my wife to have your babies, he said it through him off and he forgot the next cord and then Jack said well what does your wife look like? it was really funny and he said nothing like that has every happened. We are usually really lucky to get VIP parking but not this time, it took us 30 minutes to just get out of the parking lot and eventually we got home at midnight. We all had a blast!!!

Events and other things

Wow!! I can't believe that it's already the middle of August, where does the time go? It seems like we kinda have a lot of different things going on, we have been house hunting and actually made an offer and one that we REALLY like and are waiting to hear back. Jordan will be starting pre-school September 4th and we just signed him up today for fall soccer with his pre-school friend Ayden(Jordan is super excited about both events). I have Swiss days next weekend and I'm way excited if we get that house then I can totally shop for decorations. Danny will be having shoulder surgery in September, he injured it like a year in a half ago but just barely went to the doctors(men!!) and I think with Ryken we will start potty training so we can get a little it of a break from diapers before the baby comes. We are so very excited and crossing our fingers that this house will work out for us, so we need all the luck we can get so if you all with cross your fingers, toes and whatever else that would be awesome

Jordan has been on a kick with the TMNT(Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) he talks about then 24/7 and will call his dad every morning and tell him that he wants a green Leonardo ninja turtle costume with two swords, he also tells people that his name is Leonardo which hopefully he won't do that at pre-school. I asked Jordan the other day after we ran a few errands if he was ready for a nap and he said(while pointing to himself) this ninja is not tired, I was laughing so hard. So I guess it's a safe bet that he will be a Ninja turtle for Halloween.

Welcome Kylee N. Needham

My little sister Kendra had her sweet little baby Kylee last night. Kendra had a great delivery for being her first baby, the doctor was extremely impressed with how well and quickly she delivered(I was jealous), Kendra checked in the hospital at 5:30 and had Kylee at 9:49 p.m she weighs 6 pounds 6oz and 19 in. Kylee is simply adorable and already loves her binky, she has the cutest cry. I'm so very proud of how well Kendra did and thank her for letting me be in the room and watch my niece be born.

Henry B Eyring

Dan and I had the pleasure of attending a wedding sealing for his cousin Brent and his fiance Angela at the Salt Lake Temple, and to all the guests amazement it was performed by Henry B Eyring of the first presidency. I have never been to such an spiritual sealing, this man is amazing. The thing that he talked about that stood out the most to me is that he said remember everyday how you talk to your spouse before you leave for the day and is that the way you wanted to talk to them if it where the last time you saw them, I really thought this was important you never know what could happen to your spouse and you wouldn't want to regret the last thing you said to them. I wish we could have had the opportunity to shake is hand but he had to get back to a meeting with president Monson.

House Hunting

All I have to say is that house hunting freaking SUCKS!! we finally got around to actually finding time to start the process, we have been busy since June it just barely got settled down. I got on line on a few different websites and wrote down the house we wanted to look at and we got hooked up with a great realtor. Last night was the first time we looked at house and boy we looked, all together we walked through 9 houses, we had the boys with us but they only lasted through 5 and then we were lucky to have Uncle Jer and Aunt Kelli come pick them up so we could finish, we got home around 9:45(yuck!). Well we kinda liked 2 of the 9 houses but we want to keep looking. I never knew that this house hunting thing would be so stressful, it's like you want to take a little bit from each house that you like and mush it into one, it was like this one house was great but the yard sucked and the location or like this one was really nice and I liked until I walked out onto this tiny square of a porch high from the ground with no stairs and no back yard, we look over and it's the same for the neighbors but they had put a slide from there porch so that their kids could get to the back yard(how crazy is that?). Seriously this is giving me a headache but it's got to get done, I want time to find a good house make repairs if needed and get all settled in before the baby comes.

Girls Night Out!!

Tonight us girls(Tiff, Ann, Kelli, Christine and I) stopped and got a free meal at Chick-fil-a and took it with us to watch The Sisterhood of traveling pants 2. I just barley watched the first movie the other night and I loved it so I made all these girls come see it with me, it turned out to be a really fun night. The movie was really cute, we all like it(wait maybe not Ann she always falls asleep in movies) and then after the movie we were in a goofy mood and decided to take some fun pictures. We decided to jump of this waterfall thingy and be funny and ya well if you look at all of our faces we look pretty funny, but it was kinda hard jumping so many times with my belly and it made me have to go to the bathroom, but as I said we all had a great time and will be looking forward to doing it again.

Last night we finally got our Highlander, We got it from out of state at a action and were told we could pick it up July 28th or 29th but never heard from the guy until yesterday morning. We were told to pick it up at 3:00 in Bountiful, so it happened that Dan has a doc appt in bountiful so the boys are I picked dad up from work and headed out. I took the boys to McDonald's to play while Dan was as his appt and they after we went to pick the Highlander up and whadda ya know it's not ready the people never came to clean and detail it(it was way dirty) so they said come back at 6:30, well I really didn't want to make another trip to Bountiful with the kids plus we had a BBQ to be at. Anyways we got it home last night and they did a crappy job of cleaning it and we found a few areas where the paint has come off and a tiny dent in the door so yet again we have to take it back next week to get all that fixed and cleaned again. Well enough complaing other then that I love it, it has so much room and drives to smooth and the boys think they are pretty cool.
