HAPPY BIRTHDAY ZOE!!! She turned 2 on May 10th. I can't say the past 2 years have been easy, but they have definitely been worth it. She has gotten better and is so darling, most of the time. Her smile and personality make up for all her little tantrums! We love her so much!

Ellie Graduates From Preschool

Ellie had a great year of preschool and graduation on Tuesday Night! It was Huge!!! She looked so darling, although she wasn't interested as much in the ceremony as she was in getting her boogers! It was hilarious! She's learned so much this past year and I DREAD sending her to Kindergarten. I'm going to be a wreck! I can't imagine sending her off everyday. She's so much fun to have around. We love you Ellie!

P90X Baby!

I've officially started the P90X (AKA "Get Ripped in 90 Days") program. This is a quick attempt to lose the weight necessary for me to win the "Biggest Loser" contest I'm in. I have exactly 5 weeks. This program is a BEAST, which gives me hope that it's going to work miracles on this body of mine. I sweat like a dog while doing it. I'm even following the eating plan, which for me is huge, because it's low carbs (awful and protein shakes gag!) "BRING IT" Baby (that's his motto). I'll let ya know if it works. No major results yet (course it's only been 2 painful days)

Zoe was quite a beast in St. George and I told Ellie I needed to take Zoe to therapy. She asked what therapy is and I tried my best to explain it. She also felt like her uncle Harley (because he's not with his old girlfriend, which has really troubled her) should join her. Last night in prayers she prayed that "Harley and Zoe will do good in therapy"

St. George / Hurricane Half Marathon

We went to St. George for the Hurricane Half Marathon (forgot my hat - sweet hair). For anyone who doesn't know, just because you run 13 miles does not mean you can eat Nielsen's Frozen Custard twice daily or go to Taco Bell at 11:00 p.m. and not see post vacation lbs. pack on. I will refrain from saying how many, but let's just say I did some serious damage on the scale and told Matt I'd set a record for the most amount of lbs. gained in the shortest amount of time. I'm starving myself!!!!!

Speaks for itself! (Enjoying dessert at Pizza Factory, Kelsey, McCall, Alex and of course the hungry girl, overtaking the picture with her pink puff sleeves)

Matt's Turkey

Matt finally became a man and killed his first Turkey a couple weeks ago. The thing was huge and he was so proud of himself. Ellie loved it and saved feathers and watched him gut it. She was so excited when they got the heart. (I'm offering it, free of charge to anyone who wants the meat - come and get it)!
