11 years of happiness...

***I couldnt blog about this earlier because my STUPID computer had SERIOUS issues...but now its fixed so here is a little late post.****

11 years!!!! wow I have been married for 11 years to the best guy on earth! we celebrated our anniversary on Saturday! we went down to Mesquite with Reggie and Linsey and had the BEST time! we had so much fun! we left our kids with my mom (thank you so much mom!) and headed down Saturday morning. we stopped off in Cedar real quick to drop some things off to Tara, then headed on down to St. George. we ate at Red Lobster, shopped at the outlet mall and hit Old Navy. we drove around and looked at car lots for a bit then headed on down to Mesquite. we spent most of the night at the Eureka where we ate yummy! then played a little black jack and bingo. we had so much fun laughing and having a good time with some good friends! we went back to Linseys grandparents house that they have down there (they only live there during the winter) and went to sleep. this morning we woke up and went and ate at the Virgin River then headed on back to St. George. we did a little more shopping at the outlets and the mall and made our way back to Monroe. it was so nice to just get away, even if it was for 1 night! (I didnt take my camera but Linsey got some pics so I will have to steal them from her)

now back to my husband of 11 years!!! he is the greatest guy and I couldnt imagine my life without him in it! he is ALWAYS making me laugh! He keeps our house pretty entertaining! He is the best dad to our kids and they love him so much! I am just so happy I chose him to spend the rest of my life with! (I know kinda mushy, and sounds so cliche, but its sooo true!) anyways, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY BABE! I love you!

OH AND IN OTHER NEWS.....SCHOOLS OUT FOR SUMMER!!! yeah the kids are so excited about it! not sure if I am just yet...we will see...

hApPY biRThDay PriNCeSs!!!

wow I cant even believe that my little baby girl is 3 years old today! Time goes by way too fast! She has grown so much in these short 3 years. she is seriously the funniest girl! she keeps us laughing all the time, whether its the things she says, does,or the expressions on her face. When I first found out I was pregnant with her, I went and bought all the letters for her name because I KNEW she was a girl! everyone kept telling me I was crazy for buying girl things when I didn't know what I was even having, but I knew. :) she has been such a blessing to our family, I couldn't imagine my life without her. (well any of my kids) She is such a girl though, she is crying one minute and laughing the next! when she does this, I always say to her, its either laughin or cryin! so now when Porter cries, she says that to him. she absolutely LOVES babies (real or fake) and with her little babies, she will even change their diapers (she is actually really good at it too). she loves flip flops, purses, and jewlery. pretty much anything that is girly she loves! but she also loves to play outside and get dirty! we just love this little girl so much!

ear tube success!!!

Bryn went in this morning and had ear tubes put back in her ears for the second time. she did sooo good! I was really worried about it because it was a little later in the morning than I had wanted and usually as SOON as she wakes up she is asking for juice. But she didn't even ask for it once! she was actually excited to be there at the hospital and thought it was pretty cool. we got there 7:45 a.m. and they didnt take her back until 9:15. so it was kind of a long wait, but she passed the time with coloring and watching cartoons. I walked her back to the OR doors and handed her over to the nurse, and that is when she looked at me with her little eyes tearing up and said mommy. that was a little hard for me cause I could only imagine having your mom hand you to a complete stranger and take you back into a big scary room and lay you on a table. I just sat there wondering what she was thinking! I am sure she was SCARED to DEATH. so anyways as soon as she got done, they came and got me and I went back there and she was still sleeping. she soon woke up, she said ouch my toe hurts. (cause they had the moniter on it) and pulled it off. she didn't cry ONCE!! she wasnt even irritated or nothing. I was sooo happy for that. she just sat up and wanted some juice and her blanket. so it went very well and we are happy that she has them in again, so now she might quit getting those darn ear infections!

all suited up and ready to go...

she might just be the HAPPIEST little patient EVER!!

pLaNTinG tHe GaRDeN wiTh gRanDpA!!

Brynlee seen grandpa in his garden while she was playing outside on her swingset this morning and ran down to see what he was up to. well she found him planing the corn in the garden, so grandpa was PATIENT enough to let her help him. it was soo cute! he would dig the hole, and she would put the corn kernels in the hole and he would then cover it up. they got 2 rows done together, and then we had to go. She had fun helping grandpa, this was her first year helping plant and she thought it was the coolest thing!

Josh and I made a quick trip up to Sugar House to help Kort and Ginger move into their new house. we went up last night and stayed the night then helped them move most of today. it was a quick trip but it was sure nice to just get away for little bit to spend time with each other. it was soo great to see them and spend the day with them. so I didn't take any pictures of anyone, but I sure did remember to take them of the food we ate!!! leave it to me to do that :) but it all was soooo yummy!! pics are not too great since they were taken with my phone.
this is last nights dinner, we ate at Market Street Grill and it is sooo freakin good let me tell you. I had the fresh atlantic salmon with pan fried green beans and boiled potatoes. oh it is seriously the BEST salmon you will EVER have!!

this was lunch is pizza from the pie pizzaria. this is seriously the best pizza I have ever eaten. this is the vegetarian one and it was awesome!!!

this is what we ate on the way home. we stopped at Liberty Heights there in Sugar House before we headed for the freeway and got us some awesome sandwiches. this one is soo good. its turkey with sun dried tomatoes, avacodo, brie cheese. it has the crusty bread, like brushetta that is oh so delish!!

so ya we pretty much ate the entire time we were away, but it is all so good, be have to get it all when we come up!!! makes me want to eat all of it AGAIN!!
