Some of the musical guests this year are Hilary Weeks, Cherie Call and my all time fav, Jenny Jordan Frogley!
There are a few more and some really great guest speakers. Topics include, "discover who you REALLY are and what Goad has planned for you", "Improve your relationships (parents, siblings....boys!) And if, I mean, WHEN you sign up for the Time Out for Women, keep a few hours after wards free because you're coming to get a pedicure with me and my sisters, neices and mom. It goes from 9am to 3pm on Saturday. The Time Out for Women is Friday night from 7-10. There are some great subjects like, "But, how do I change my spouse?" and "living a covenant marriage".
If there is anyone that wants to go, but can't afford it right now, e mail me and we'll work a deal.
Can't wait to see you all there!!!!!!
They decided to lay in the rocks for a few shots, which I preferred to them throwing the rocks at me.
Ok, and then here, I told about our fun girls weekend, and I don't feel like retyping it all, but we had a fun girls weekend, filled with CPK (twice), Paradise bakery, hobby lobby (my personal disneyland, love that place), pedicures, women's broadcast, michaels, kirkland's, costco, and then off to jesterz followed by Nielson's custard's cobbler and grinders.

The first one is my sister Vonda. Most of you already know her and love her guts. In fact for a couple of years there I was really getting tired of hearing how funny and amazing and perfect she was from all of you, now I just take it as a compliment that I'm realated to someone like that. In fact my favorite compliment is when I do something (usually something weird like sing with major vibratto, or sing while dancing with both hands while driving), and one of her kids say, "that's what my mom does" or "you're as werid as my mom". I love it! She's also the most giving. If things aren't working out for someone, she makes it work out. Seriously she's got things set up for me to be able to come to her birthday bash. She has a baby sitter and a place for me to stay (her kid and her house...nice!)
This one I call, "pretty cotton candy girls"
My top 5 favorite things about Von:
This picture I like to call, "two hot girls in a really bad photography moment". It was a long windy day.
1. SO Selfless
2. Amazing homemaker
3. Jack of ALL trades, no lie!
4. Has put up with me for this long!
5. Got me through the hardest years of my life when pretty much all of my other friends dropped me for 3 years. She sent me fun packages, called a few times a week adn e mailed.
Happy 30th Birthday Vonda and Jana (heehee)

amazing pear fritter and ice cream dessert will be served as well as popcorn and water.
We look forward to a delightful evening which should be on the town social calender and listed in "Who's Who", or "People" magazine.
We thank you for your most kind invitation and anticipate a warm evening with the upper class folks of the city.

I've been looking for some killer recipes for all of these amazing pears I bought from my sisters (you all need to get on their list for next year, best peaches and pears EVER)
and I of coarse turned to my good friend Paula Deen
Anyway, K was here and I asked
"Should we make these?" (showing her a picture of them
She answered, "do they have sugar?"
I replied, "yes"
she replied, "YES!!!"
This dude is just awesome. That's all there is to him...Awesomeness. Here he will be demonstrating a dance move that ends with a gun.
Here is my uncle Bob Adams....aka Grizzly adams. He's a cool dude too. I took this picture to demonstrate how serious the Adam's boys are about their meat. Our steaks are the sissy little half pounders on the right. You'll notice that sides of beef that my uncles all put on the other side...a couple per person. They love their cow!
These two had a lot of fun running around with their 3rd cousins, and going on hikes with dad up to the caves. K loved just helping the girls out with the cooking.

And alas, this girl was a contestant on one of America's Next Top Model's, and they told her she could do plus sized modeling. Isn't that sad?! She's the same height, weight and size as me! Ha, cept my parts aren't so perky, and I come with a pouch. But she's my motivation during this fall biggest loser challenge...which I'm in 8th place out of 18.
Another random fact about everyday life. My 2 and a half year old still doesn't talk, BUT, he did sit in bed with me cuddeling (like he does every morning) and he was repeating every word I said...I have two witnesses....but he won't do it again
Oh, and note to self: read about movies before watching them as a family. We don't watch many movies as a family, we do it maybe once a month, and this month we watched The Spiderwyck Chronicles. Um, SCARY! It was a lot of fun watching the kids be scared though. Even B would come cuddle up on me when the Ogre came out. J asked me to close the window that was by him, then he asked if he could come sit with me. K just stayed snuggled up with dad on the love sac.
Things going on with me...still making loads of pumpkins, another apron, finishing a baby quilt, painting our piano red, and making fun Halloween decorations which I will share when they are ALL complete. I have bunco at my house in october, so I'm trying to make it all spooky. Plus, we at the Mulder home, LOVE Halloween!!!!

Lesson 4, make sure subject is extremely cute so you get this....
This last picture is the best one of the shoot. Needless to say, we're doing a reshoot today or tomarrow, not in grass!

And yes, I have my days, I sadly I let you all know the days I'm unhappy with him, which is usually just me being a brat, and him being reasonable, so I think that's probably why these loving comments have come as a surprise to many. A lot of blogs only write about the happy skippy jolly stuff in life. Mine is uncut!
In fact, let me share with you my drama for the day...ok yesterday. I pretty much cried for an hour when I realized my size 8's were too tight to wear on Saturday, so I put on my size 10's and tried to smile through the party. Then on Sunday as I was giving my 14, 15 and 16 year old sunday school class some of the left over pumpkin pies, I said, "did anyone notice I packed on a good 17lbs in the last month?" Then 3 of the boys in the back started laughing and I said, "what? Is that what you guys were whispering about earlier?" and one of the boys who has no tact said, "yea, Moses(a kid in the class) was asking us if you were pregnant!". Wow good one ding dongs! I grabbed my paper, and walked out of the room to the bathroom where I did the girl thing, cried about it, then walked out, with my stomach pooched out, and rubbing it like it were a baby, while the boys were right there. I'm taking it as constructive critisim, and I'm going to have it be my drive to get rid of the pooch again. PUNK KIDS!!!
Anyway, back to my doctor. He's the best. Oh, here's some gross info, he wanted to do an internal cocksicks(sp) adjustment....that's your tailbone...just imagine if you will. Needless to say, I'm not letting him do it.
K, and don't drool over this picture.
It's majorly HOT!

Alright, now I'm going to take a little quiz for Jase:
What's his nicknames? Jase, daddy, chickenhead, sexy
How long have you been married? almost 8 years
How long did you date? WE didn't. We were friends "with benefits" for 2 years, worked together for about 6 months, then one day I told him I liked him more than I've ever liked anyone, he thought about it and a we planned a wedding, then got engaged, then got married, and then I told him I loved him...I know, a little out of order, but look how well it worked out! How old is he? 31
Who eats more sweets? Isn't it obvious?! Duh!
Who said I love you first? Um, Jase, by about 4 months! He said it on the doorway of the bedroom of the Cox's house after we went on a LONG motorcycle ride to Thatcher...IN OCTOBER and we were frozen. I said it on their swing a few months later.
Who is taller? Jase, by 1"
Who sings better? Um, neither, but I'm going to have to say me since i've never gotten the comment " you have the worst singing voice I've ever heard."...Yup, that's right, some friend of his told him that before we got married...sad.
Who is smarter? Jase big time! I know a lot, but it's all the useless stuff, like who's the guy that pooped his pants in the marathon, or how many fries are consumed a year by the average American? He knows real stuff. he wins
Who does the laundry? i do! Everytime. He does help me fold though. But I gather, sort, wash, dry and dump. Then after the kids go to bed, we, well, you know....fold the laundry together.
Who mows the lawn? Jase, once every couple of months...thanks babe
Who cooks dinner? I do, every night! He grills though, oh, and does corn, I can't do corn...ew.
Who drives? Jase, pretty much every time. I hate driving, and he's the only driver I trust, but I've gotta start driving more.
Who's more stubborn? Jase by far. He's soo stubborn, never gives in. Ok ok, you all know it's me. I get whatever I want...poor guy. Love you J
Who kissed who first? Not fair...it was a dare....the firs tnight we met...and TOTALLY hot, and we both admited that we wanted more...gotta love the college years.
Who purposed? Jase of coarse. He picked out the best ring ever (still love it) and he took me out to Show Low lake...which used to be where my grandpa's house was, and he had the whole romantic thing set up and we were freezing, and he asked if I'd be his princess forever, and I answered with, "I think I'm going to throw up". and we've been happily married ever since.
Who has more siblings? I do, I have 4 sisters, he has 3 brother...I win!
Who wears the pants? We both do. I probably do more, but we both have a hard time making decisions w/o each other, and we both take equal charge of things around the house.
- his eyes
- his determination
- his grey hair
- the way he plays with the kids, like his is now, they all in there scream laughing
- his love for the outdoors
- the way he dances, as embarassing as it is sometimes
- how good of a chiropractor he is, and how much he really cares about fixing people
-that he'll do whatever ridiculous thing I want him to do
-his mambo lips...Mmmm
-that he chose me over all of those hoochie girls that loved him
-that he reads his scriptures everyday no matter where we are
- how much he loves his mama
- his big huge bulging biceps
- that he loves to laugh
- that he knows when I need a break
- that we share an intense love for The Office
-HOW MUCH HE LOVES ME!!!!
I LOVE YOU JASE! Happy birthday!!! Now go eat one of the 5 left over pumpkin pies!!!!!

And I had to zoom in on this picture, because we only have it for a couple of days. We got it framed for Jase's office. It is the same frame that his diploma and license and everything else is in...he's soo excited to get it all up on the wall, I think I'll do it for him for his birthday while he's gone. Anyway, isn't it cute?!
I was going ot take pictures of the rest of my pumpkins all over my house, but I figured you'd get the picture. I'm on hold right now because the rest of my fabric isn't in yet. Anyway, now I'm off to make 10 pumpkin pies...that's right TEN! Jase said instead of cake for his birthday he wants pumpkin pie, and our guest list keeps growing, so I need to start whippin these suckers out!!! Yum!
He was seriously just content walking around and playing with whatever. He loved it.
And what camping trip would be complete without one of the Mulder's vehicles breaking down. Yup, Jase spent a whole day towing the jeep back to pick up the durango (which just had another power window go out...2 down, 2 to go)
I just like him, even when he's whining.
Jana (11 weeks pregnant) chopping wood! Notice the sweet face from my neice Bethany in the background.
Ahhh, then to K's first day of her second year of preschool. And NO she didn't fail, we held her back! She's the smartest kid in her class, um, and by far the oldest.
We took a couple inside, and she wanted to do more (she never does) so we went out in the front yard and she broke out the poses.....
B in the background, not realizing his sister had such moves.
And on Sunday, K and I decided to finally make her apron. She's watched me make all of these other aprons, and we've had the cute fabric for hers forever, so we're making one for her and one for her best friend (our neighbor) Oh, and yea, I wouldn't look up while Jase took the picture...gross!
These last two pictures were just soo funny to watch on the camera LCD screen, we went back and forth for a good minute or so.
