Thanksgiving stuff!

I know I already did a Thanksgiving post but that had no pictures of our day so I thought I would write about what we actually did:

The day began with Ron and Addi taking me to a 5 mile race (when I say 'race' I really mean that I was running along side the old ladies, ok, the SLOW old ladies that had not already passed me! And a group of annoying little high school chicks that would walk up every hill and tick me off but sprint down the hills to pass me...I hated them and secretly wished they would get shin splints or side aches or something!) Anyway, I wanted to run the race so bad so I would not have all the guilt sitting down for two glorious dinners. I usually have an awesome running partner to help me get though the runs, but she was sick so I had to hoof it solo. So there I was, happily shuffling my feet along the run when my Ipod quit! SO ANGRY! So now I only had the dumb high school girls to listen to and they had issues about some boy that texted them about another girl that she totally didn't like (is your mind numb yet...cause mine was!) But I finally finished and saw my wonderful husbie and baby and it made it all better!

Then it was time to feast! First we went to Ron's parents and ate good food, then went to my brothers house for the Flint feast and watched the Cowboys (Go Boys) win again!
Such a fun day! It is a little hard having a little girl now because usually we get to hang out all night, but Addi gets seriously angry at 7:30 and demands her bath and bed (aka, moms arms...yes still suck at this)

Anyway, Friday was fun! We all watched Meet the Robinsons (cute if you haven't seen it) Then my wonderful mom demanded that she baby sit so me and Ron went out to play. We saw Dan in Real Life, (also very cute! I love that man!) then went to look for toys for Addi, if you have any suggestions for a 9 month old let me know! I want it all, Ron wants to just get her bubble wrap because she would probably like it just as much! We capped the night off with watching Knocked Up, it just re-established why people should not watch rated R movies because it kinda sucked. Unless you love pot and dropping the F bomb (which many people do and I am not judging) but if you don't, it really is not very good!

Anyway, great weekend, loved every minute of it! Happy Gobble yal!

So Thankful!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! Isn't it wonderful how lucky we all are! We all have roofs over our heads, family's that love us, husbies and babies and loved ones to hold, all sorts of wonderful friends, and I'm sure all our lists go on and on.

I am going to brag for a moment and say how thankful I feel for the things in my life:

Wow, what a year! I have a great little girl that thinks I am funny and wonderful and wants me to never leave her site. I have a husband that is so selfless and thoughtful that I can hardly stand it (unless I want him to clean, then he is a little selfish) I have a family that wants nothing more than to have Addi in their presence, I have a great job where I only have to be away from my baby for a few short hours ever other day and it gets me to appreciate her more and still feel like I am making a difference in the world of Roy.

I also want to brag about my cute friends, here are some of my favorite memories of you:

McKelle, I love you! I am lucky that I have a family member that I not only like to see, but I cherish the time we have together! I cant wait till we can force our daughters to be good friends like us. I remember when I stayed down at your house over Christmas break one year and we would turn the sound off the TV and make up our own voices for everyone...laughed so hard!

Tice: You saved me so many times! Times when I would take myself too seriously or when I needed to just vent you were there. I could not have gotten through many times with out you! I remember lots about that great year up in the iceland, I remember how you would pull up on my emergency break at ever vicious turn. I remember when we got back from our LONG trip to Courd-a-lane (sp?) and you made me laugh so hard I literally pee-ed my pants while standing in our kitchen! I also remember the 20 taco night! SO fun!

Jennica: I only wish we would have had more together! You were such a rock for me. Never drama, never tense, you just always made me feel good! Remember the night you made me the most delicious fried rice ever? Still crave it! I also remember how I would love to play with that cool skin thing on your neck (sounds creepy, but that is what we were!)

Milli: You have always held a special place in my heart. You felt like the younger sister that I never had. Well, more like a twin because when I was around you, I felt like I could be 12 again! I loved our runs more that you could ever know. I loved talking to you, listening to you, and I always secretly hoped that no one else would wake up so it would just be me and you hitting the pavement. You made the bench pretty fun that year and you kept me laughing about crazy legs and the love of coaching lesbians.

Lauren: I used to love looking into your eyes when you were catching me, it was so fun to see your mix of determination and encouragement. I also loved when I got to be your roommate! Do you remember the time that we went through like 2 packages of Mini Eggs just us sitting in our room! I was so sick! I also loved to covet your shoes (I still think about those animal print Steve Maddens!)

Myr: Wow, we had some good times together! We had to lean on each other so that Stocking wouldn't drive us both too crazy! I remember all the long hours we spent in that training room together getting our poor arms worked on! I know I will never be the same. You were the one person that made me work harder than anyone else and I am so thankful for that.

Laura: I may not have loved the job, but I know that Heavenly Father put me at Mt. Ogden Eye Center so we could hang out and become good friends. I learned so much about patience, love, perseverance and strength from you. You are simply amazing and I look up to you more than you could ever know.

I think that is all of my Blog buddies! I love you all and am so very thankful! Now go eat some turkey!

I need help!

Since most of you out there are my former (tear) softball buddies, I need help! I need some catchy little phrase to put on our t-shirts this year and I am out of ideas! Let me know what you think. Otherwise they may end up with a big t-shirt with "Go Roy" on it. This is lacking a little too much enthusiasm for me. So please all far and wide, help me!

All night long!

Do you all remember that song, "All night long (all night, all night) All night long!" Well if you remember it, just think of it during this post....

She did it, she is really a big girl now. We put her to bed at 8:00 like normal, and suddenly my alarm was going off and my baby was not in bed with me! First of all, I was shocked and bewildered, and then I was thrilled that she finally did it....then I was a little sad, she is getting so big.

Now this was not some random luck thing. It had taken quite a lot of will power and work to get this to happen. I, being a bad mom, was used to letting my baby sleep in her bassenett and then when she got sick of it, she would come sleep with me...I kinda liked it. But then she got big and she started taking up too much room and it was about the time that it was my husbie, the dog and her on the bed, and me on the floor that I realized there may be a problem. So when her room was finally in order and she was in her crib I decided enough was enough. It was three nights of hour and a half screaming until finally she gave in before sleeping happened for longer stretches. During those nights, I would stay up, right by her door, sometimes in her room sitting on the floor so she wouldnt see me. Other times I cleaned the bathroom or read from all the child rearing books I have to give me strengh. Anyway, it must have worked, even though I hate thinking what is going through her head...something like "Well, I guess my mom has completly abondoned me and I am in this alone with you furry pocka dot puppy, I can only rely on you now."

Still, it is quite an accomplishment, and I am so proud of her. I miss her, but it is also nice to roll freely and not worry about crushing her.

Dyson II (the sequel) THE VACUUM SUCKS BACK

Hey everyone, this is ron, if you see my wife with hickies it's not my fault, well kinda. It is probably because she finally got the suckiest vacuum in the world. She even cried a little when she got it. She really does love it, I caught her whispering to it that I would be away at work soon and then they could take care of every room in the house. It's a little awkward in our home, but I do have the bed to myself now, so at least I sleep well.

And just so you know... these blogs AREN'T magic. Just because you post a picture of something, and pine for it on the blog, it doesn't mean you'll get it. So y'all can just cancel those searches for images of diamonds, caribean cruises, big homes, and brad pitt.

but just in case they are.....

We all survived!

I just wanted to quickly say that my weekend went very good. Thanks for caring everyone! On Thursday I held Addi for as long as I could before sadly passing her off to her daddy. Clutched my phone all night waiting for his call telling me that she was absolutly miserable and that I needed to come home. Well, the call never came and when he did call, he sounded very positive and happy and my baby girl was happily sleeping in her bed...for a minute then he just held her (he is cute.) I slept pretty bad, but I guess that is to be expected. We ate way too much food, (we all got the worst gas ever and wanted to die!) laughed because it was 2:00 in the morning and we were delierous, and made a few new pages. A couple ladies brought their 6 week old babies and I waited patiently until I could hold them and realize how big my little lady has gotten! Finally we were on our way home and I was back in my babies grasp. I instantly started crying when I held her again and she smelled SO good! It was nice. I guess they had a good time together because now Ron said I can leave when ever I want (Tice, book my plane ticket!) I really am a lucky girl and I love when you realize that you have the best life ever!

Does anyone have any Klonopin???

For those of you who don't work at a high school and happen to know all the terminology for the various pharmaceuticals, these are anxiety pills. The reason why I am under all this stress and need some quick fixes is that I am going away for the weekend. No Husbie. No Addi. Just me and lots of paper, glue and a bunch of pictures (scrapbook weekend.) This is where I feel like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. One part of me is pumped! I can sleep all night without my small baby yelling for me to rescue her from her evil crib, and then proceeding to slap me in the face for the rest of the night (yes, I am a bad mother.) I wont have to make any food, I wont have to put dishes in the dish washer, no laundry; just a sweet, sweet all ladies weekend. The other half of me is terrified! I probably wont be able to sleep because I will constantly be worried that she is screaming at her daddy all weekend. I will toss and turn because I will miss the sweet punches from my baby. I will have to come home to a dirty house, which will stress me out even more, and how can I sit for hours at a time scrapbooking my baby and not burst into tears every time I look at her sweet face! Plus she is at a stage where I cant even walk across the room away from her before she cries out for me... how am I supposed to leave? This is a major delima and my stomach hurts already! But I guess it will be good for me anyway...even though I am starting to well up just thinking about it. This is going to be rough.
