Preschool parade

Jordan had his preschool parade yesterday and did a good job walking around being Indiana Jones, they had a fun filled day celebrating Halloween and came home with a bunch of candy.

Had to go again

The Haunted forest was awesome and I just had to take my my sister in-law Kelli who hates haunted houses, so Jamie and I took her last night and had a blast. Here are some funny pictures.

We just had to take a pic with these hilarious 12 year olds.

Haunted Forest

Last night Dan and I went to a haunted house with our friends the Fitch's, we stopped and ate some dinner at JCW'S in Lehi and sat around at talked and then headed to the Haunted Forest in American Fork. We did the out and indoor haunted house for 20 bucks, the Haunted forest was freaking awesome and well worth the money I have not had that much fun in a long time but I would not recommend Peggie's going to a haunted house, I seriously peed my pants and was laughing so hard I could barley walk. Dan just laughed at me the whole time and Jon just kept scaring Jamie and I all night, my hubby was a troop and suffered with his still very sore arm that I grabbed onto and few times but we had a great time and will for sure go again next year.

I love my Sweet Boys

I just wanted to say that I love my amazing little boys, they have been so wonderful and helpful this last week while I have been sore and wanting to just rest. Jordan and Ryken are so excited to meet baby brother Luke that they seriously ask at least once a week when Luke will be with us, I tell them sometime after Christmas but I know that's hard for them to understand.
I can only imagine what Luke it going to look like, we are all so excited.
I'm very blessed to have all boys in my family who I know will love and protect there mommy ( This includes my wonderful husband who has been awesome even though he is still in extreme pain from surgery).

I just want to scream like crazy, why is it when one person asks you a question it seems to be followed by a million others asking the same question. I swear last week the question of the week was how are feeling/when are you due? and when I answered that I'm not due until January people were like really you have that long? I kept getting told that I look big for how far along I am which doesn't help because I have been feeling like crap and have been extremely soar sometimes to the point where I can barley walk. I think that I need to go to a Chiropractor and get checked out, after I had Ryken my pelvis and hips would hurt a lot and come to find out that my pelvis was out of place(one leg was longer then the other) and that was what was causing my pain and I'm thinking that it could be the same pain I'm having now. If you go by weeks I only have 13 weeks until my due date but for some reason if I say I'm due January it seems forever away, I think it will start going by fast with all the Holidays coming and next thing I know my sweet precious Luke will be here.

I don't mean to sound so negative and want everyone to know I thankful that people care about me(just don't ask so many questions that make me feel fat ha ha!!).

Scarecrow Festival

Good times at the Scarecrow festival with the Anderson's and Fitch's.

Too Funny

So Yesterday the boys and I were out running errands and Jordan kept doing something I didn't want him to and I kept asking him to please stop, his response to me was "Mom I'm sorry I'm being naughty but sometimes there are things that I just want to do and I'm going to do it". I seriously could only laugh, I love this age he makes me laugh everyday.

I love you Jordan

Jordan's last soccer game

Soccer is all finished, Jordy did an awesome job and had tons of fun playing. After the game Jordan and some of his team mates went to get some yummy ice cream.

It's offical

While I was gone on my road trip Dan was able to get Ryken off of his "baby"(binky). We have been "trying" since he turned two but that little turkey just wouldn't let it go. In a way it kind of makes me sad because it means he's not my little baby anymore, I can't believe he will be 3 in February. Where does the time go?

Road Trip 2008

Destination: Carrington, North Dakota
Date: Oct 9th- Oct 12th
Miles: 2,265 to and from
Hours: 42
Gas: $568.33
People driving: Miranda, Crystol and Missy
People flying: Treasure and Mandy
Purpose: surprise Nicole

So this is how it begins, there is 7 of us girls who have know each other since junior high and we also all worked together at ARUP until one by one some of us started moving out of state, we have Nicole who lives in N. Dakota, Treasure in Arizona, Chandra in Georgia, Mandy in Missouri, Missy in Idaho and that leaves Crystol and I that are the only two that live in Utah. We planned like 4 or 5 months ago that we wanted to make a surprise visit to Nicole for her 30th b-day and it happened that we all could make it for her surprise(at the last minute Chandra couldn't make it). So it was planned that Treasure and Mandy would fly out and Missy, Crystol and I would drive(Ya way crazy) we had this all worked out with Nicole's husband and friends.
Well to make the surprise even better Nicole's mom and step-dad were going to ND as well and were going to cover as the surprise so she had no idea it would be us, we all meet up in Carrington and stay at a hotel and got ready while her mom distracted her and had Nicole at a Karaoke bar with all her friends, we got the call that it was time to surprise her so we packed all up and brought her favorite mint brownie's and went to the bar walked in singing happy b-day(her back was turned from us) but it took her a second to hear us and then turned around and freaked out and started crying(she NEVER cries) it seriously was the best surprise and couldn't have gone any better. We stayed at the karaoke bar until 1:00 am having the time of our life, the rest of the weekend we just hung out and enjoyed our time together. Then us three girls made the crappy drive home, but we all made it home safe and had the best weekend ever.

This and That

I just have to write about our very funny Jordan. I seriously love this age(he will be 4 Oct 22) he is the funniest kid ever and everyday he makes me laugh, Jordan changes his mind so often it's hard to keep track of what he likes or if he's moved on. First he liked Power Rangers then Spider Man then TMNT and then Star wars("was going to be obi wan kenobi for Halloween) and now he's had decided he wants to be Indiana Jones for Halloween, I'm almost afraid to get that costume because he might change his mind and who knows how many times it will change before Halloween.


I hate to admit this but I have given in and for now decided that we are going to name our baby boy Luke, Dan and the boys have called him that since day one and I can't come up with one that I absolutely love and I'm getting sick of looking. I'm still open for suggestions but if by the time of his arrival I don't find another name it will be Luke Whitney(still thinking about the middle name). I can't believe that I'm 25 weeks it seems to have been going by fast and before I know it my sweet little boy will be here(the holidays will make it come fast). I have been having a hard time deciding how to decorate the nursery but came across some cute stuff at Rod works(best store ever) I found a cute old fashioned car and wall art but need to find more cars so if anyone knows where they sell them please let me know, I want the room to be kind of old fashion cars with neutral colors. I have the whole look in my head and know I just need to find items.

Dan's surgery

Dan had his shoulder surgery yesterday and everything went great, Ann was very helpful to take and pick him up and get him home. If I remember right he will have to be in the sling for 4-6 weeks and will be out of work until next week, Dan is not happy that we will not be able to lift or workout or any way hard stuff for at least a full year. Dan's sling is kinda tricky but I was able to figure it out and help him shower(hee! hee!!) and get dressed but I'm worried that when I'm not around it will be hard for him to do, he also has to wear extremely tight socks that go all the way to his knees to prevent blood clots. It will be nice to have him home and spend time with him even though he can't do much.
