One Great Night

DATE NIGHT

Sign/closed on our Mortgage loan

Went to dinner at Texas Roadhouse

Got home in time to put kids to bed

Watched a moviee with my Hubby

Enjoyed alone time

Watched it dump snow

My hot Husband

Rush pushing Rush in her doll stroller

Then playing pick-a-boo in the curtains

After that they wen to bed, but it was fun playing with them before bed.


It snowed...

and snow some more!
It snowed even more! When we woke up in the morning you could barely see the bump of a bike under the snow it was crazy

FYI- following might be TMI for some people...
I finally started my period, 2 weeks late! I was so relieved. I am never that late so I was excited, even with the bad timing:) We had fun anyway and enjoyed our time alone. When Sean started kissin on my neck I didn't even worry cause is really good at not leaving marks on me but I ended up with the biggest "curling iron burns" I have ever had. This happened on Friday night and the kicker was I had to give a lesson in Relief Society on Sunday in our brand new ward that we haven't even been introduced in yet!
I had to go to the store to buy a turtle neck the next day to hide Sean's handy work!

yeah I looked like a cheetah:)

Playing in the Snow


My cute kids

Cute Keilei

Keilei never keeps hats on. I found this adorable hat I wanted her to wear cause I thought it would look so cute with her short hair, normally personally I not a big fan of hats with short hair, but this looked so cute. So even though she might not ever wear it, other then when I made her to snap a couple pictures, I bought it. But it was only a dollar!

Ain't she cute!!!

misc. pictures

Just some cute pictures I wante in my Journal

Happy Rush Man
I should have gotten a picture of it but 10 mins after this he was covered in mud head to foot!

Kids do, kids say

You know when your kids say the funniest or most surprising things and you can't help but laugh or at least smile, that is kid magic and Keilei has done a lot of that since we got home.

Thumbs up & eye wink:
Sean was getting all our boxes ready to go to recycling and Keilei was helping him. My Mom and sister came over and commented about how she was doing a good job. She looked up from the boxes winking her eye and doing a thumbs up at the same time. We all busted up! I have no idea were she got that. I had never seen her do that before.
Keilei loves running around naked or just in her undies. She was doing this one day and then she went and put her hat on and then put my boots on. After Rush watched Keilei he got my other pair of boots and brought them to me, he wanted boots on too.

Keilei came walking out of our bedroom with my bra on and she came to me and said look mom I have booboos too.
I went in to Keilei's room to get her ready to go to bed and she was dressed up. It was so cute. She is starting to do this more often now, but she still doesn't keep it on for very long.
My Mom took Keilei to primary last week and a little girl walked in with a frilly dress on and Keilei said, "Look Cinderella!" Then another girl walked in with a frilly dress and she got excited again and said "Two Cinderellas!"
The next time I went to the store I kept my eye out for a good Cinderella dress for Keilei. I found one at target the other day. She was excited to twirl in it. She kneels on the ground so that the dress fans out in a big circle around her.
Rush had this blanket and her was trying to lift it and but it on the couch. So I put it on the couch and then he took a piece of it and tried to pull it to the Ottoman. Then I realized what he was doing. He wanted to make a hut. So I made one for him and he started crawling around in it, so excited.

This is rush's black eye he got. He was at my parents house and he was walking to the bench(when he was just learning to walk). He reached to grab it and his hands missed and his head whacked on the bench. He bawled of course. He had a instant bruise under his eye and it got all swollen. He had this bruise for over 2 weeks, poor guy. These picture are of it on it's way to getting better.

While we were in CA my watched the kids and one night my brother stayed with the kid, they were sleeping, so my mom could go watch a show. Well I guess Keilei woke up and so Sam went to put her back down and ended up laying on the floor by her bed waiting to fall asleep. He dosed of and stated snoring, he is the loudest snorer that you will ever hear, and Keilei would look down at him with an angry glare and say "Sam be quiet!" I guess it happened a couple times, I thought it was so funny.
I found out about that story because the other night she woke up and I went to put her back to bed and she said, "Mommy will you sleep with me?" I told her that her bed was too small and that I couldn't. Then she said, "Mommy will you sleep on the floor like Sam?"
I figure that Sam had laid there till she fell asleep so I asked about it later. I thought it was a cute story and I thought it was cute how she asked me to sleep with her.

Sad one:
Sean was on the computer doing stuff and Keilei brought a book to him and asked him to read it. He told her just a minute, she hung her head and started walking away and said "You always say that" :( she continued to walk to the couch to read it herself and a Sean asked her what she had just said. She answered in the same sad voice with her head hung "Dad you always say that"
Of course he stopped what he was doing and read her the book. I know he is not the only one to blame we both tell her just a minute, or maybe later, way to much. I had no idea that she was really at the age were she notices and it really does make a difference.
We are going to have to work on that.

CA Friday -Relax & Sat. -drive home/turtles

Friday we took it easy and relaxed. We slept in then Sean went for a run on the beach then we did an afternoon show and then dinner. It was fun to not have any stresses for the day.

Saturday We drove home. Sean had stopped the car out in the middle of nowhere and it woke me from sleeping. I thought he was having a hard time staying awake or something was wrong with the car. He said a car had rolled over and he was going to see if he could help. There was already 4 cars pulled over to help but no ambulance or police so I was glad he went to help. There was a person sitting on the ground and one still in the drivers seat. I thought the one in the drivers seat was hurt really bad and that is why they hadn't gotten out of the car. After a little bit I figured that neither of them where seriously hurt just by the way Sean was walking around and then talking to people.

Sean came back after 10 mins. or so and said that neither of them where hurt and the ambulance was on it's way, the driver had fallen asleep fyi- (which is another example to me why I refuse to drive on road trips or very far at all, I fall asleep so easy), so we continued on our trip.

I was so proud and comforted that Sean would stop to help, and so grateful that he has the skills that he has to help people!


This is the St. George temple. We only saw it from the road as we drove by, we would have stopped but we wanted to get home, but it is such a beautiful temple. I love the old style and how white it is. I think it just made it onto my top 5 temples list:)

This was a hotel/casino out in the middle of nowhere but I thought it looked SO cool in the the shape of an old mill/barn.

We made it home! I was SO glad to see the kids! We gave the kids their presents.

Rush got some new sunglasses
We gave Keilei the sea shells we had collected for her. She was excited.

We gave them the two baby turtles we got for them in China town.

She was even more excited!
I was so glad to see them and to see their smiles!

Rush laying with Sean and watching a move before he went to bed. It was so adorable!

The next day I had to change the turtles water and I let Keilei hold the turtles. I thought once they moved it would scare her but she did great.
This next pic is of Keilei petting the turtle and saying "Oh, it is soo pretty!"

It made me happy:)
