It's too dang HOT out!

So I know that its been quite sometime since I have been on my blog to post or otherwise, but we were "blocked" from looking at blogs at work(which is what I did on my lunch) so here I sit stealing time on a friends computer to make a quick blog.

Today to beat the heat we went to the local Fun Park to let the boys run and play, which they did for almost 5 hours, they had the best time. We met my friend Heather and her boys there to let them all run, while we had mommy time and caught up on the events of our lives.

It was a great time and we will have to do it alot more, I would much rather be inside an air conditioned building than outside in the heat!!!

Have fun in the sun for all that like that....

In the Pursuit of Happiness - day 1

I was tagged by Jo. The challenge is to blog every day for 8 days about one thing that made me happy that day. I will totally do this, but it will have to be 8 work days as thats when I am able to blog. I tag - Sarah, Megan, and Chelle.

So day 1 -

I was driving to work this morning after having just left Kaleb at my moms to wait for the bus, and as Kaleb usually does, he calls me, just to talk.

So we talk for a few minutes about really nothing at all and then I tell him to get ready to head out to the bus, reminded him of all the things he needed to do and hung up. Well I forgot to tell him I loved him so I dialed him back and while waiting for him to answer I was jammin to Bon Jovi Bed of Roses. Singing my heart out.. and he answers.... I had to finish the long note and he just laughed and laughed...

I realized that his laugh made me way happy.. it was a great laugh.. so thats my happy thought for the day! Laughter is always the best early in the morning.....

My latest crafty projects

I decided to try to craft for Mother's Day instead of getting people something that they had to return for whatever reason.

This is what I came up with, a picture holder. I made one for my mom and my grandma as well as Kaleb's soccer coach(for all her help this season on and off the field). I am glad that they turned out as well as they did, everyone seemed to love them!

Here is my Moms.

Here is my Grandma's.

and here is Kaleb's soccer coach, Shauna's.

Tons of fun, and so easy to do. Now I have to decide what my next craft will be... hmmmmmm the possibilities are endless!

Happy Mother's Day!!

Mother's day to be has always been a day to celebrate my mom and grandma... lately things have changed a bit in the way that I look at the day and what needs to be celebrated. This year I wanted to reflect back to when I first became a mom to the wonderful whirlwind that I call Kaleb.

My first mothers day came on 11/28/2000, the day that wonderful whirlwind of a son came into my life. After I was fully awake, and over the shock of how NOT cute he was.. I realized right then in that moment that I was put on this Earth to be his mom, and to love and raise him as best as I could. While I dont always think that I am doing the best I can, I do love him more than anything in this world and would be totally and completely devestated without him. (How did that happen in the short 9 years that he has been with me???)

When I take a few minutes to just sit and watch Kaleb or listen to his endless chatter I have to remind myself that he is the reason that I am who I am, and I am happier now than I have ever been in my life.

My wish this Mother's Day is that all the mothers out there that read this, understand what I'm saying, and that they have one of those same moments on their Mother's Day... whenever it may be.

So on this Mother's Day, I want to celebrate all the mom's out there who are a part of me being the mom that I am today.. my mom, my grandma, my aunts, my sisters and my friends... Happy Mother's Day to you all!!!

And Kaleb? May we always take life as it comes together.. you are my heart!

So 3 weeks ago the soccer season started, and as we ALL know the weather in Utah, we have been able to play 2 games out of the many that have been scheduled due to weather cancellations. Kaleb missed his first game because we were out of town but we made it to his second game.

This picture is when he got to kick the ball back into action, he did so good during the game. He was able to be goalie which he liked.. but when he went back to being a guard he forgot the no hands rule and picked up the ball just as it was about to go into the net! :) They got to shoot a penalty kick and missed! Whew!

Needless to say, our team lost :( (by alot!) but Kaleb loved playing and couldnt stop telling me how glad he was that we signed him up this year! He has informed me that he is going to play every year, so get ready mom!

I cant wait for more games I want to see him in action again, tomorrow is the next schedule game.. so cheer for us where ever you happen to be!
