Sweet Picture

At bedtime tonight Porter and Marli wanted to give eachother a "Love," that means hug at our house, before bed. Marli will never smile for the camera, so I thought this was so sweet! They are both at such a fun age right now. I dont want either one to get any bigger.

Porter's Birthday!

Porter turned 4 on October 9th! We had a fun party at a place where I teach gymnastics, called "The Peak!" They let you rent out the playland, and the gymnastic room, which has trampolines, and a lot of fun things to climb, roll, and hang from! It was a lot of fun, thanks to all of you that came! He had such a good day!

Our 6 Year Anniversary

Sorry, I have a lot of catching up to do, October 4th was our 6th Anniversary...It seems like Ive known Todd my whole life, but these 6 years have gone by so fast. It kinda makes me sad! Anyway, Todd was in charge of the plans this year, we decided to switch years of who plans what we do, this was his year. So he took me to the Anniversary Inn. We stayed the night we got married, and have stayed there a few other times. This time the room theme was "Pirates Paradise!" Oh, and was it! I wont go into detail, I dont want to make all you girls jealous!!! No but seriously, it was a really cool room, the pictures arent great cause the room was dark. There is a journal in the room that people can write in when they stay...I decided I better read it after we had our fun in the room. It ended up that we knew 3 of the couple that had written in there....Gross!!!! We had a good time! Thanks Brynne for keeping our kids over night!!!

Yes I have giardia. I have been sicker than a dog for the past 4-5 days. Finally last night we went to an instacare because I was losing a lot of weight. So we go there and they hooked me up to an IV and I got to leave a poo sample, and today they called and said I tested positive for Giardia. This is the second time Ive had it in 4 years. Maybe I need to quit drinking out of streams or something! I am feeling much better today, and Im being treated. I have to thank my good old friend Tami for helping me out so much lately she has been a lifesaver. And Tyra for listening to me complain, oh yeah, my sisters too, but they always listen to me complain!It sounds like Im winning an Emmy award or something, and last but notleast...Todd, seriously, he has been so sweet. He has been such a good daddy, while I lay like a fat turd on the couch! He is so good to help!

Kitty, Kitty, Kitty

This cute little kitty sat at my front door meowing FOREVER, seriously, like 3 hours. I finally let it in, and my kids fell in love with it..atleast Marli did. Porter said it stunk, but I called Todd, and told him, and he freaked out saying to not let it in the house......It was too late for that. Todd hates cats, but the funny thing is, I think I hate them more, but I felt bad for this one. It was so little still. But we ended up calling Perry city and 2 nice policemen came and took her to the animal shelter. As they were leaving I ask what happens to them, and he said they usually put them to sleep. I almost cried. I shouldnt have called them. I should have just thrown it in the field, and hoped another family would be nicer than we were.

This is Marli all ready for Gymnastics!Isnt she cute!
Check out these awesome leg warmers!!! She loves them!

Okay I have to explain these pictures. My sister Brynne, ALWAYS has this perfect camera smile, we make fun of her because me and Megan always look so stupid in pictures. So she tried to teach us what she does......she closes her eyes and when you count to three you open your eyes and someone takes the picture. It didnt you can see.

Porters First Day of Preschool!

Porter is such a show off! Im a bad mom, most moms were sad and had a hard time leaving their kids. I was shouting for joy! He loves every second of it, and to my suprise the teachers are thinking he is great!

This is Porter and his "best friend" Riley! They are in the same class and after class the first thing they did was hold hands and start begging me and Tami to let them play! They are pretty cute!

Family Reunion

We had the Nelson family reunion this past Saturday. It's one of those you dont really want to go, but feel like you should. We knew like 6 people and they were my sisters and my dad. And everyone else there we didnt know and everyone just sits with their own family, who they already know. It's just so much fun.
Me and Todd. Todd loves family reunions. His family reunions are so much fun, really they are, what's the deal with my family?

My dad, Bones, he hates pictures, this is the best one I could get!

Me and my two babies, Marli and Porter.

Our weekend

Marli and Porter

I wish I had a better picture of this. Porter is the 3rd one over from the right. This ride was for "big kids", but Porter wanted to go on it so bad. Finally I let him. It was the funniest thing. Me and Todd were laughing so hard. Before the ride started all the kids on the ride were giving him five and saying how cool he was. He just loved that! By the way this is at the good old Box Elder County Fair!

Marli and Porter driving

Me and Todd

This is Todd out in the hole in our backyard. Many of you have tried talking Todd out of digging a hole for our trampoline, by hand. Well he did take your advice, we paid someone to do it, but this guy while digging a hole, busted a irrigation pipe that was in our backyard. So, Todd spent most of the night trying to fix hand! We have great luck.

This is our sweet 2 year old girl, Marli. A couple months ago she got some pretty bad burns......I thought I would post some pictures of her burns then and now!

This is 3 days after her burns

This was a picture I took tonight of her burns. She will probably have a little scarring, but they are looking really good!
