2 Cute

What cute boys I have! Everyday I feel so lucky that I was able to have these guys enter my life. Now being 2 sometimes gets frustrating and you forget how blessed you are to be able to endure this, but I am truly so thankful!

Masters Degree

Well, I finally did it. I signed up for my Masters. I'm a part of Western Governers University. I will be taking the Masters in Mathematics K-6. I'm excited and nervous at the same time. I was hoping to be able to get started in July because I'm out of school right now. It would be perfect timing if I was able to start, but of course I missed the deadlines. I just hope I can make it through during the school year. The first grade teachers tell me the class coming into mine are angels! I will also have a small class size of 21 students. It's amazing what a difference that makes. Last year was a joke!

Weight Loss Plan

My Weight Ticker
I'm starting another weight loss plan. I really need to get this started. I thought it would be wise to start a week before the New Year. I need as much of a head start as I can get. Tomorrow will be Day 1 of my work out and diet. I need to lose some weight before we head to San Diego in April. Adam and I will be meeting Grandma Dolores's family for the first time. Also, it is supposed to be Adam's 10 year reunion. I'm hopeful and excited!

Christmas Slide '09


Christmas 2009

It's 2:34 p.m. and babies are finally taking a nap from a long Christmas morning. This is Alden and Ammon's 2nd Christmas. This year they are beginning to understand Christmas, at least the opening of presents part. They didn't really care what was inside, but they sure enjoyed opening presents.
It was fun getting them out of their crib and see their eyes light up to more presents.

They started playing with toys they had gotten from Grandmaleta's at the Christmas Eve party. She sure knows how to spoil her grandkids. They got A LOT of stuff. We preplanned not to buy too many toys because we knew this would happen. The boys have a short attention span, so after we opened all the toys from grandma, which felt like one minute, We decided to get our presents. They remembered from yesterday's party how to open the presents. But because there wasn't a room full of presents they looked at them and played with these presents. From us they got: a live Elmo, flash guns, Mr. Potatoe Head, and some cars. The list would go on and on if I listed Grandmaleta's presents. She did a great job though.

After that, they began to get restless so we knew it was time for breakfast. I decided to make my mom's traditional Red, White, & Green Christmas Waffles. They are green waffles topped with whipped cream and strawberries. Alden loved them, especially the strawberries. Ammon didn't want anything to do with it. We tried giving him other things, but he was set in his way.
We cleaned up, because we knew that Grandmaleta was coming over and Grandma Judy. They at least needed a place to sit down. Alden and Ammon love seeing their grandparents. They showed them their toys and gave hugs and open mouthed kisses.
Next, we decided to visit Uncle Bryon and give him and his family their presents. It was fun seeing everyone in their pajamas. They all got spoiled with fun things. My brother and his wife do a great job of making Christmas special for each kid. We enjoyed their Honey Baked Ham and all kinds of assortments of chips and dip. They gave us a nice gift and we will certainly enjoy it tonight! The babies were getting cranky and wanted to be held the entire time, so we knew it was naptime.
So we packed them up and headed home. We got their milk ready and changed their diapers and put them down. As we were relaxing we could hear them laughing and giggling in bed. We knew they were tired, but they would not go to sleep. Then they started crying. And of course, both diapers were smelly and they threw their binkies out of the crib. So I changed them and gave them their binkies and again put them down. At first, Ammon refused to lay down, but I left and now...they are asleep.
I'm trying to be better by posting things as they happen. So hopefully, as my new year's resolution, I will keep you all updated.
