Time for a New Post!!

OK - I was tired of getting on my blog and seeing my ugly foot and my ugly scar and I can only imagine that a few others out there felt the same way! So I am hurrying and posting something new with much nicer pics to look at!
A few months ago, we went hiking in Cedar City with Matt's good friend,
Mike Zorn, and his wife Shanna and his 2 boys, Kade and Cole.
We didn't get many pictures, but here are a few.
It was really fun and I wish we did it more often.
I think now as Emma gets older, we will. Two cute bums! Can you tell whose they are?!?

A rare picture of the boy in the family...
with all these girls around, he tends to get neglected!
We love you, Connor!

Ice cream, anyone? We saw this big rock that looked like a big scoop of ice cream
and so, of course, Matt had to find a rock that looked like a cone
and pose for the this pic. I think the flavor was Rocky Road :)

What Do You Think?

If you have a weak stomach, do not read this...

I had a cyst on my foot (Connor lovingly referred to it as my 6th toe). I couldn't wear anything but flip flops. The doctor said I needed surgery...we need to make sure it's just an innocent cyst. So 2 weeks ago, I went under the knife and all I have to show for it is a hideous scar. So did I make the right choice? Which is more hideous...the 6th toe or this lovely scar? I'm not so sure...

It's official...she's walking!
At almost 15 months, Emma has finally decided to try out her legs.
And after 5 kids, it never gets old.
It's just as exciting watching her practice as it was to see
Connor walk for the first time.
She's so darn cute! And it seems like she is just as tickled with herself as we are.
She grins and giggles the whole time she's walking.
Fun, fun stuff!!

For Your Viewing Enjoyment...


It's hard to tell if she's kissing the kitty or eating the kitty!

Cute kids!

Why stop at just one flower? Hannah thinks she has to wear ALL of them at the same time!

This is my view from my kitchen window...priceless!

Confession Time

I've never posted anything without pics before, but I need to get something off my chest...

I have heard all the buzz about the Twilight Series for the last few months or so. I was curious, but hadn't really decided if I would read it or not. Last Saturday, I was at Walmart and decided to pick up the first book and see what all the hype was about. I love to read and needed something new. If any of you know me at all, you know that NOTHING keeps me away from food...until this. I finished the series in a little over a week. I could do nothing but read. There were constantly butterflies in my stomach, so I could hardly eat.

Some days I was fighting tears.

Most days I wasn't doing any housework.

Everyday my family thought I had totally lost it!

I LOVE this series!!! It is by far the best thing I have ever read! It turned my life upside down (luckily it only took me a week to read!)

What did I learn from this experience?

It's OK to live in a fantasy world for a little while (actually theraputic).

I love my husband more passionately than ever (he's definitely OK with that).

As much as I would like to, I will never meet the Cullens.

I highly recommend it to any of you who haven't had the chance to read it yet. And if you have read it, I would love to hear how crazy it made you also. I need to know that I'm not alone!

Right now I am missing Edward, Jacob, Alice, Bella...time to get back to reality.
