It's official, we have moved into our new bedroom! I'm so excited. Here is a pic of the new room.


We don't have a working bathroom yet but we do have the flooring in. I can't wait for the bathroom to be done. Hopefully this week the cabinets will be installed and then the toilets :)

In a good placeI don't know if I mentioned before but I am now the secretary in the Relief Society Presidency at our Church. The RS president used to help with the LDS 12 step program in our area. One time a few years ago when I questioned if I should let my brother come and live with me I called her. She was so level headed and gave me great advice. I remember her asking me what I was going to do when he came home high. Would I kick him out? I know whatever I did would certainly affect my kids, and I didn't really want that kind of influence on them. I remember I kept saying "what if I tell him he can't live with me and he dies, then it will be my fault." It is so interesting how time and experience can change your perspective.I am at a point in my life where I know that it doesn't matter what I say or do, my brother is going to do what he wants to do. I pray for him and I often reflect on the Serenity prayer (this is the same prayer they use at AA) God gran…

Sweet Brig

Brig has been such a sweet baby. He has been so patient and tollerant as I have been trying to get all of the painting done so that the carpet can be laid next week. I left a paint can down that I thought was empty and little Brig crawled over to it and had quite a bit of fun. Good thing he was already wearing a dirty onsie. Yes after this I just threw it away..lol



Here is the other reason that his onsie was so dirty before the paint. I made brownies with Ethan and I let Brig lick the spatula. I don't normally just hand it to him but I had him in his high chair and decided that I didn't care.




He licked the spatula before he got into the paint, just in case you wondered.

On the 11th of November it was Veterans day. Our school puts on a really nice program for the veterans in our community. Spencer wanted me to call and ask my dad to come ( my dad was in the Utah Air National Guard ) of course he didn't tell me to invite my dad until the day before the program and my parents don't live close to us. So my dad wasn't able to make it.

The program was so nice. All of the boys that are in the scouting program came in their uniforms and they had them wait by the doors and open them for us on our way in and our way out. They also had a really nice flag ceremony. I thought the program was so nicely done. The 4th, 5th and 6th grades sang all of the different songs that go with the area of military where you serve. They had all of the veterans stand when their song was sung and everyone in the audience would applaud them. I even felt emotional (I think I get that from my mom). I felt so grateful for the freedom that I have and for all of t…
