Keilei was sitting on Sean's lap and he farted and Keilei did the funniest thing. She started waving her hand infront of her nose cause it stunk. I have no idea where she picked that up but she just did it out of no where. It was the cutest thing and it made Sean & I laugh.

I am blessed

So I just wrote the post underneath this one and then went to a friends blog and saw this amazing video and I feel so bad I was just complainig about being sick. I should be counting my blessings.

I counldn't figure out how to but it on my blog but hear is the link

Not Much

My life has been pretty dull the last little while so I don't have much to write about. Even though I have tried a couple different medications nothing seems to be helping. So my day pretty much consists of laying down as much as possible. I asked Sean & my Dad if God wants us to have children and bring more sweet spirits to this earth way does He make pregnancy so difficult?Really why do you get so sick that you never want to get pregnant again? I would have a bunch of kids but I can bearly take care of Keilei while I am this sick I couldn't imagine taking care of two kids and being this sick. I already feel so bad that I can't play around more with Keilei and take her outside to play in the nice weather. Both of them pretty much laughed and said they don't know. Not that I am second guessing Heavenly Father I know every thing we go through is for OUR good it's just hard to see why sometimes. Luckily I have an AMAZING husband who is so sweet and caring, I couldn't do it without him. And my Mom and sisters who help me with Keilei when Sean is away. They are a lifesaver!
But enough of me complaining there are people that have so much worse off then me I need to be more grateful. I just get a little down sometimes is all.

Red Envelope Day

I got this from a Friends blog but it is something I truly believe in! I thought this was a very classy way to have your voice heard! Since I DO NOT believe in abortion the President will be getting an envelope from me.

When: March 31st, 2009
Get a red envelope. You can buy them at Kinkos, or at party supply stores.

On the front, address it to
President Barack Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW
Washington, D.C. 20500

On the back, write the following message:
This envelope represents one child who died because of an abortion. It is empty because the life that was taken is now unable to be a part of our world.
We will all mail the envelopes out March 31st, 2009. Put it in the mail, and send it. Then forward this event to every one of your friends who you think would send one too. I wish we could send 50 million red envelopes, one for every child who died [in the U.S.] before having a chance to live. It may seem that those who believe abortion is wrong are in a minority. It may seem like we have no voice and it's shameful to even bring it up. Let us show our President and the world that the voices of those of us who do not believe abortion is acceptable are not silent and must be heard. Barack Obama spoke at a Planned Parenthood Action Fund event, uttering the now infamous line, "Well, the first thing I'd do as president is, is sign the Freedom of Choice Act. [Applause.] That's the first thing that I'd do." An empty red envelope will send a message to President Barack Obama that there is moral outrage in this country over this issue [The Freedom of Choice Act, which will essentially undo every law currently in place to limit abortion in the U.S. (i.e., parental consent laws, parental notification, waiting periods, prohibition of transporting a minor girl across state lines to obtain an abortion, etc.)]. It will be quiet, but clear.

Please read more about The Freedom of Choice Act here: I invite you too to send your envelope.

Happy Birthday Pops

My Dad's birthday was today. He is 70!!! Wow talk about over the hill:)
On Saturday my brother Mike, Sean, & I went with Dad to the shooting range. It was really fun we had a good time. Around dinner time people started showing up and we all ate steaks at my Parents house. Nate & family, and Scott & family and Jeff all came up from SLC. It was a very good dinner! Unfortunately I ended up puking all mine back up about an hour later. I called it a early night we came home and I went to bed.

Today my arm was sore this morning from shooting Mike's 9mm. I'm glad I didn't shot the 45 or I would have been even more sore. We all went to my parents again for dinner and to have cake and ice cream. The cake was ablaze wish I would have gotten a picture. Dad blew them all out but three, which is better then my 18 sister did! After the candles where out Keilei stood by the cake and did the sign for "More" over and over. So my brother Sam lit one again and when he stopped she kept "saying more". So finally he started lighting a couple more and she kept shaking her head yes, for him to keep lighting them. It was way cute and we had to keep her away from the cake all night. Dad's B-day present was a new gun!

March 19

Kayla is 18 -The Birthday Princess
Sean & I went to lunch at Chili's. Then I went home to take a nap and Sean took Keilei on a hike. They hiked up to the windcaves and back. Sean said she did really well.
At 5:30 we went to my Mom's house to have cake and ice cream for my little sister's 18th Birthday!
I can't believe that she is 18!!!! That is so crazy! She is the baby in the family. She isn't suppose to be that old.

We were talking about how she would look just like Sandra Dee, from Grease, at the very end of the movie she just need is to lose the tutu and get a little black leather jacket.

This is the side effects of having black frosting... it made everyones mouth and teeth black!

Sean & I watched this movie the night before last. I really liked it. It isn't made by LDS people but is made by some Christian group. It made me feel good to know that there are others out there that believe that Marriage is important and not just something that comes and goes. That is takes a lot of work. It reminds me of something a bishop on my mission said in a talk. That now days people live their lives by convenience rather then covenants. When you get married whether LDS or not you promise to take of each other through good AND bad. Hopefully we are blessed with more good then bad but you can't appreciate the one without the other! Besides if life was all bliss we wouldn't learn and grow and it is a lot easier to fall into the pride cycle.
It was also fun to watch because it was about a firefighter:)

Morning Sickness

So who ever came up with the name "morning sickness" should either be shot or know how extremely lucky they where. Morning...HAA! It lasts a good 24 hrs with me!!! At least with this one.
I have it ALL DAY & ALL NIGHT. I seriously feel like I'm seconds away from puking any second all the time, except I can't/don't actually puke. Which I can't decide is a good thing or not.
I can hardly function in the day, poor Keilei I'm no fun. I have been in my pj's for the past 3 days. It gets even worse at night and I can't sleep and if I do fall asleep I wake up crying from feeling so sick, and then keep crying cause I'm so exhausted... plus hormones of course.
I also have NO appetite and have to force myself to eat. Then to top it off not sleeping and not eating much makes my headaches flare up:( which I can't take anything to help because I'm pregnant.
Sorry about my whining but that that has been my past couple days.
So if anyone has any brilliant ideas feel free to share.

Keilei's 15 Month Check Up

March 10th was Keilei's check up.
Length 80.01 cm 82%
Weight 21 lbs 22%
Head 48.4 cm 97%

He said she was tall and skinny with lots of hair. He also wasn't surprised or worried that she will not sit still long enough to eat. He let Keilei put the little germ guard on the light that goes in her ear she did it just fine and he said she is a little advanced that usually kids are 18 months before they do that. He also said she had teeth coming in (no surprise her gums have been swollen for weeks)
She did get 3 shots:( MMR, chicken pox and one other one. She was fine all day but she woke up at midnight and she was burning up! Her temp was 103. So I gave her medicine changed her into cooler dry cloths and but her back down. She woke up again at 1, 2, & 6 then went back to sleep till 9ish.
It was a long night! She had a 102 fever for 2 days, even with Tylenol. Man I hate having her get shots. She is feeling better now which is good cause I feel like a POO.

How to: Magnet boards

I have had a couple people ask how to make these magnet boards so I thought I would post a How To.
All it takes is...Cut, Glue & Hang!
By the way the way I do it you have enough to make two!

1. Go to Home Depot and ask where their sheets of metal are. I buy the sheet that is 36in by 24in. it is $7 and some change. (The cheapest one that size at Lowe's is $18)

2. Cut it in half so you have two 18in by 24in. I have done this with a drumel and with metal cutters. Metal cutters are the easiest but cost around $25 so I just borrow my dads. But they might be willing to cut it for you at the store, I know they do that with wood. If not just ask around for metal cutters(someone in your ward is bound to have some:)
3. Find some cute paper that you like. Cut 6in x 6in. You will need 3 12x12 pieces of paper or 12 6in squares. You can use as many different kinds of paper as you want or just two kinds of paper it just depends on how busy you want it to look.
4. Get a glue stick and glue the pieces to the metal. Don't over lap them, you would have to cut the paper a smige bigger to do that, just line them up well.(I like glue sticks because if you need to take the paper off for some reason it peels right off)

5. I haven't done it to mine but you can put a coat of Mod Podge over it to protect the paper and to make it last. It only cost a couple bucks at a craft store.

6. I take my drummel and drill two holes in it so I can hang it by a ribbon. But if you don't have a tool that will do that you could probably just get picture mounts(saw tooth ring hanger as pictured below) and hot glue (hot glue gun $2 at Walmart) a couple to the back. It isn't very heavy so that might work.
7.Oh the magnets are just big buttons, flowers, or they can be whatever you want! You can buy a packs of magnets at Micheal's and you just hot glue them to the back of what you want.
wha-la you have a super cute magnet board that cost under $10!!! Well technically you can have TWO for that price which is even better!

Cute Crafts

Pillows for Keilei
This is what both sides look like
I made this magnet board ...
to match this that I made awhile ago.
When my little sister saw the magnet board I made she asked me to make her one to match her room. Her birthday is March 19 so I made her one for her Birthday. They are super easy to make too.
The flowers are on magnets too so she can move them if she want to.

Family Fun

Today we went to the Fun Park together! We also brought my nephew Keenan. When I called to ask if he wanted to go with us he said, "Oh Please, Oh Please, Oh Please!" It was so cute he was so excited. It is a pretty cool place the jungle gym is big enough that parents doesn't have a problem going in with the kids. Keilei was a little hesitant at first but she really had a good time and loved the slides.

Keilei loved the little kid car rides!
