Sorry....Things are Boring

I haven't posted anything in a while.....maybe that has something to do with the fact that my life is very uneventful! In a good way, though. It seems like there is always so much going on that it's nice to feel like life is temporarily dull and boring. I love adventure, but for the sake of financial issues we can take a break now and then. We are even sticking around here for all of the upcoming holidays. We did cheat and headed away over night to Moab last week. Chris' work paid for the whole thing, so we couldn't complain. Chris reserved a motel that had a big slide that curves around in about 2 circles into a very warm pool. We then walked down the main road that night and went out to eat. Beautiful evenings there and I love tourist shops! It was a fun family outing.

Anywho, let's see. Well, my oldest child turned 7 on the 15th. Can you believe that I'm the mother of a 7 year old? My life is seriously flashing right before my eyes. Things are going so fast. Unfortunately the one thing that has slowed way down is my METABOLISM!!! I hate that it's not like my childhood anymore where you can eat everything and anything and be fine. Now, I take a bite of a candybar and my thighs grow two inches in circumference! Back to more important things. My daughter had a Hannah Montana birthday party. The girls all received "pop star make-overs". They all got there nails polished, make-up done, and pink hair streaks (all courtesy of me...hehe). I think she had a great birthday. Now, I have another birthday coming up on the 20th of November for my sweet Asher. He will be turning 5!

Blowing out her candles on her cake covered in Hannah Montana guitar suckers. After she blew them out, she panicked because she realized she had forgotten to make a wish. So, I just lit one up again so she could make her wish and blow it out again. She's so funny!

This is her whole clan that she invited to her birthday. They were quite the silly bunch and I think they all had a great time.

If you remember back a few entries ago when I mentioned how Lucy (my 2 year old) stuck a remote into the microwave and turned it on. Well, we had episode number 2! This time, she thought it would be a great experiment to see what happens when you put a CD into a toaster and cook it. We now know it makes a horrible smell and requires the whole toaster to be replaced. I wouldn't have ever known that had she not been so helpful in teaching me! (sarcasm)

I'm glad you had a fun time in Moab. Madi loves Hannah Montana, too. She keeps telling me she's going to be a rockstar when she gets older like Hannah Montana:) I can't believe Ginny is 7! We're getting old...but you're as beautiful as ever! I totally know what you mean abou the metabolism thing...I think the last couple of months have actually been the worst for me, and now w/all this Halloween candy and junk around...It's horrible! That being said I think you look fabulous:)

Your little girl is so cute! And no I can't believe you have a 7 year old! It sounds like you threw a great party. By the way, you look awesome!

Im so jealous of your Moab trip. I have never been there, but I hear it's fun. I CAN NOT believe you have a 7 seven year old. Seriously can't. It has gone by so fast, and if the next 7 go by as fast as the first, she will be 14 and in high school. That is not okay with me!
