Miss Addison was ready for another hair-cut. We had been taking her to Lolli Locks. A fun hair salon especially for kids. It was also pretty pricey. So I had a go at her hair this time. She loves her hair short because it is so much easier for her to take care of. Plus it is a whole lot SASSIER. I just think she is the most beautiful girl I have ever seen. After a couple hours of cutting, evening, and trying to get the style just right~ here is the end result. I think it turned out pretty cute.

Valentine Day Treats

This is from Clint. He knows I Love chocolate and the movies. He also knows that I love Rosa's, so we went there for lunch today.
These are some SWEET TREATS from my wonderful Addison. She home-made these all by herself. The first are her hand prints. She put them in a shape of a heart. Then wrote a cute note in the middle.

This is a box of conversations hearts that she painted pink, added two pieces of ribbon with Dove chocolate wrapped in tin foil. Then she made the cute signs for the front. LOVE IT!!!

Night Out

Clint & I went out to dinner tonight with my mom & dad. We went to Olive Garden & had a good time. They gave us some good ideas on things we can do to make our family run smoother. I am just so tired from all the many things that I am in charge of to keep our family& home running. We came up with a plan that will hopefully give me more free time, Clint more "fun" time with the kids, & give the kids more time to (hopefully) entertain themselves. After our delicious dinner we were walking to the car when I get this frantic call from home. Addison is upset and I couldn't really understand what she was saying, but I heard something about Jarom being trapped in the bathroom. I get all worried and ask her to slow down and tell me again what is going on. Finally I understand that she was telling me that there is a big roach in the hallway in front of the bathroom & Jarom is trapped inside because he doesn't want to open the door in case the roach gets him. Meanwhile the dogs are trying to eat it until Addison starts to really scream and then they go hide under the table. My mom tells them to go get some hairspray and spray the roach so it won't move. Then we tell Addison (because Jarom won't come out of the bathroom, all we hear is him screaming) to get the vacuum and suck it up. Addison tries to suck it up with the vacuum but it won't move because it is now stuck to the floor. They had gotten Aussie Sprunch spray and boy was it stuck to the floor. I told her that she has to scrape it a little with the hose so that it will come up. She says, "nuh - uh". So I say $5.00 to whoever sucks it up, cause I don't think the kids will move until that thing is gone. So out comes Jarom and he sucked that roach right up. I think that $5.oo is a small price to pay. When we got home the kids showed us where the roach was. You can see where the sprunch spray went all around it. I took a picture so hopefully you can see it. Just squint your eyes a little and turn your head this way and that. It was so sad to hear their screams but once I knew they were safe it was kinda funny. Thanks for the fun time, we love you mom & dad!

25 Random things about me

I did this on Facebook along with many other people. So I thought that it would be fun to share it on the blog for all those non-facebook people. So anyone that has already done it- tag you're it. Here is an easy post and a fun way to let all of us get to know you better. All those that haven't done it yet- tag you're it. It really isn't hard and it is super fun for all of us to read some fun little tidbits about you.

1.I was suppose to be twin boys. No ultrasounds when I was born so Dr. went by how big my mom measured and heart my rate.
2. I worked in the Mall for about 2 years in a frozen yogurt shop.
3. I worked in a movie theater for 3 1/2 years during High School. Met some really great people working there. It was a fun job. I quit when I was getting married. At the time I was an Assistant Manager.
4. When I was growing up I would get up really early in the morning to watch TV. With 6 kids, there wasn't many other times that you got to watch what you wanted to watch.
5. I was the "peacemaker" growing up in my family until I turned 13. Then all bets were off.
6. Grew up on a really great street. All the kids would play outside and the moms always did fun activities with all of us.
7. When I was growing up I wanted my own room so badly that I took over my mom and dad's bathroom. I hoped to make it my own room. The shower was too small for me to sleep in though. I only made it one night. Back to the bedroom with 4 girls!
8. I did gymnastics and clogging for many years growing up.
9. I did shot put and discus in High School.
10. I was obsessed with Patrick Swayze and all things "Dirty Dancing" when I was in Junior High.
11. I actually loved High School.
12. I love Movie's. I still try to go once a week.
13. I got married when I was 20. Met my husband in Courtship and Marriage class at GCC Institute.
14. I am a Certified EMT (about 20 years ago). Love to learn about how to fix, treat or save someone.
15. I would love to go back to school and do the EMT class again. Would like to become a Nurse or something else in the Medical field.
16. Had my first child when I was 21. It was not an easy first couple of years.
17.Had my second child when I was 23. She was 5 weeks early. She weighed 6 pounds 5 ounces. She was healthy enough to come home next day. (This was way back when you only got to stay one day.)
18. Had a Hysterectomy at the age of 29. That was tough, but now I am glad it's done.
19. I love to read. Novels, mystery's, but nothing to deep doctrine-y. Boring!!!
20. I love shopping. My daughter loves it even more than I do. Scary!
21. I love to shoot guns. And I love archery. That was my favorite part of Girl's Camp - the archery part.
22. I spend many hours watching my son play gruesome horrible games on X-Box. It is the one thing that he loves to do. So I do it because I'm a mom.
23. I would love to move either to Southern Utah or the East Coast. Hate the heat. I love trees and having 4 actual season's. The leaves just started falling off the trees here. For about 3 days. There are already new leaves on the trees. Weird!
24.I love Mexican food. It has to be really good though. Nothing worse than bad Mexican food. For those East Valley people, Rosa's is my favorite.
25. My sisters are my Best Friends.

I look forward to getting to know all you bloggers a little bit better.
