Whattsa Happenin Hot Stuff???

I've made a schedule for myself for Mon-Fri and I've done good at sticking to it, except for the twice a week blogging at 5:30 that I put in there.  TWo mornings a week, I go to a body pump class, done great at that, one morning a week I do a workout here…..and the other 2 mornings I'm supposed to blog.  I haven't….and it's always because I feel like there is nothing exciting to blog about in our lives….but I'm realizing it's the opposite…there is just so much going on (still nothing too exciting) that I don't have time to blog about the fun small things like I used to. So that's part of my goal…find the little things that th skids will want to remember.   First off, the kids have found The Cosby Show and Full House! I couldn't be happier.  We've cut back screen time to 30-60 minutes a day for the older kids and 1-2 hours for the littles (sanity reasons, don't judge).  But I"M SO glad they love these two shows more than the stupid shows on Nick with the tweens.  ugh! We're done with those forever!  We played the game "Beat the Parents" last night at dinner (which didn't live up to it's title…Jase and I…CHAMPS!) and one of the questions for the parents is, "what Nickelodeon show did Selna Gomez get her start on?"  They thought they had us on that one…until I casually said, "easy, Wizards of Waverly Place". BAM!  Then I realized how pathetic it is that I knew that. I thought "even stevens" was my last tween show to be into in 2005, but alas.  Anyway, for us, it's Cosby and Full House.

 This week Boston got to do a trial class of Karate…which he's been wanting to try FOREVER.  He loved it…but um, that's an expsnive sport!  So we're doing some shopping before we commit.  Kamryn also got to try out her life long dream of horseback riding on a trail…through a river.  I don't think she could have been any happier.   She's already decided she wants to do that for her birthday this year.
 And Jaden attended his second mutual ever…and come home blushing!   I asked how it went, and since they are practicing for the Cultural Celebration for the temple open house I knew it wouldn't be his cup of tea…dancing and singing….in front of people.  The dude is great at both, but if there is anyone NON family around, he stops immediately! He answered, "embarrassing".  I asked what happened…and his reply was, "I had to dance with a  girl".  haha I LOVE IT!  LOVE IT!  And um, he actually got probably the most beautiful girl in the ward, so I don't know what he's complaining about!  Totally cracks me up though. I asked him what he had to do and he did the dance with me, and they had to hold hands on a part and jump around each other….that's where the "embarrassing" comes in.  He's a stud…I just hope he doesn't realize it anytime in the next 10 years!

Ahh, and now onto that magic moment, where as a photographer, you have an epic fail that is so devastating that you almost want to can the whole thing.  I forgot to take pictures of my kids at Easter in their adorable outfits….and then again at Christmas, so I made them stay in their church clothes after church this last Sunday so i could snap a few.  Um, Jaden bought me a tripod at a yard sale and I was so excited to try it that I didn't even check to see where my focus is…so here's a pictures with my kids in the background…but look how sharp and nice those bushes up front look. :(

We'll try again later.



LOVE this! Kam is such a cutie it kills me! and so brave too. And how sweet of Jaden to buy you a tripod for Christmas, he really is such a sweetie. You're doin something right with those kids kiko!

You are a fun mom... I think we've ben trying to get Asher to a free karate class for like 2 years. You actually DO stuff. Good job!

I know how you feel about the picture fail... we didn't get Ezra in his "coming home" outfit or in front of the Christmas tree. Your pic might be blurry, but at least you got it! ;)
