I just looked at saw that my entries for 2008 was 84 and in 2009 it went down to 32 (well 33 now!) That is SO terrible!! So I just decided that there are enough fun, crazy things going on in this house that I can make it to 100 posts in 2010!! Thats my goal, so if you happen to check in from time to time and there is some stupid post that doesn't really mean much......I might just be trying to get my numbers! LOL! But really, there is never a shortage of crazy around here, so it shouldn't be too hard!

So if you live near a Bass Pro Shop, they have free pictures with Santa as well as crafts and activities for the kids, all for free. (you can go to www.bassproshop.com/santa to check it out) My kids had a blast and since we shaven't had pictures with Santa in YEARS they were really excited to see him! Devin secretly overheard Austin tell Santa that this year for Christmas he wanted "for all the people who aren't going to have a Christmas to be able to have one" I guess we do afew things right as parents?? I can't believe how big my kids are getting! sniff sniff Brigham was so cute, as soon as he looked up and saw it was Santa he gave him the biggest hug and Brinley was terrified! She barely let go of me to get the picture! What cutie pies!!

My sister finds the best websites and blogs and I just wanted to share the latest addictions!
Every day they have a "deal" of the day. Last week they had the Disney MP3 players for $7.99!! I check it every day!
I LOVE this cooking blog! Every recipe my sisters and I have tried we LOVE!
Just introduced to this one today and I am afraid to even spend the time looking around in it because I know I won't be able to get off! Amazing craft ideas and deals.....like telling you about $5 fleece jackets at Old Navy, today only! So cool!!

My sweet Hunter turned 10 in September! He is such a wonderful kid....seriously! Finally I have a kid who cares about if they house is a mess, and from time to time I even catch him getting after the other kids "come on guys! We aren't a bunch of pigs! Cant you just pick up after yourself!!" (wonder where he has heard that?) If he watches kids for me I will come home to find the house completely clean and happy kids! One Sunday I walked in and found him ironing his Sunday clothes! For his Birthday he wanted to go to Amazing Jakes really bad. I explained to him that there was just no way we had the money for that. He was fine, but came back about an hour later with a proposal. "what if I work and earn my own money to pay for me and my friends to go, then could we?" I couldn't refuse, I was so shocked that he was willing to work to earn money to take OTHER people with him! So he did, he worked really hard at Grandma & Grandpas, and a little here, and earned almost $60. It was such a proud mommy moment! How did I get so lucky? Here are some things I love about Hunter at age 10
* he is very smart and does all his homework without being told
* he loves to ride bikes, play rock band, play outside, and go rock climbing
* he LOVES music! he always has on the radio and knows the words to everything
* he enjoys scouts and likes participating in pack meeting
* I love catching him when he is alone doing things like reading his scriptures, helping someone or cleaning up after his brother and sister that make the HUGEST messes!!
* he never forgets to give us hugs, kisses and thank yous
I love everything about this kid, every way you look at it! I am really enjoying him as he gets older, we have become good friends and I love hanging out with him. He is the most amazing kid and our family is so blessed that he is a part of it!

Oh how I miss my blog!! I don't have a computer at our new house.....yes, we moved AGAIN! So I am never able to get on here anymore. So many things have been going on.....Devin in hospital with bronchitis, the same weekend we moved, Liberty in the hospital with an RSV thing, more hours at work, Masons baptism tomorrow and on and on. I just wanted to put my feelings down about the things that have been going on in my life lately. At 1:30 this morning while I was laying in my bed sobbing like a baby because our Tahoe had been impounded, and will be for 30 days (looong story....no suspended registration from no insurance) and now we have Devins single cab work truck to accommodate 10 people.....I felt very strongly that I needed to pray. I am the WORST at saying a prayer when I know I should, but don't feel my heart is in the right place, but I did it anyways. My tears kept coming, but I started thanking my Father in Heaven for the blessings in my life, and all the good that I could find. Slowly the tears slowed and I felt overwhelming peace fill my heart. Despite the uncontrollable shaking from fighting off a complete panic attack, I knew the Lord was mindful of me and I was very grateful that he helped me to look for the things in my life that were happy and wonderful. We will figure things out, just like we always do, but I am grateful most of all for the Gospel in my life and a Savior who suffered all so I can be better.
