Let The Games Begin

You'd think these people love BYU or something

Ok I know I look crazy. I was just so excited from our little mission
In honor of the big BYU/Utah game my friends and I thought we would play a little prank on one of the biggest Utah fans we know. Our good friend Joe. Since Joe can't stand BYU we thought it would be good if he woke up to BYU stuff all over his house. (For the record, Seth would have no part in this.) On our way over Marianne and I got a little pep talk from her husband Rick. His biggest rule was; get all your talking and giggling out before we get there. I have to say we were doing so well. No talking, just working. Then we heard something at the door. We tried to hide, but in all the rush I started giggling and Marianne jumped behind a bush. I followed and pushed her back (yes, she's 7 months pregnant) making more noise. Turns out Jenny thought her door wasn't closed. Note: it was not due to us making noise. She laughed and let us finish what we started. Rick, however was not impressed with our prank skills and has banned Marianne and I from any future pranks. Come on Rick, we'll do better next time I promise! I think it turned out great. Rick even got a BYU licence plate cover over their Utah one.
Poor Joe though. He has so many BYU fans that want to get him that he couldn't figure out who did it. His wife had to tall him. We love ya Joe!
Thanks mom for helping me.

If you have kids read on.......

I just wanted to tell everyone about a company called Santa Letterz. Check out their web site and the youtube link. It explains everything. Oh and this is for my brother Scott's company. He is a partner, and still works at Noahs. In case you were wondering. let me know what you think. I'm sure he would like the feed back as well.

Are You Kidding Me #12

This post is for my cousin Jami and anyone else that cares. She recently did a post called confessions. I was reading it thinking are you kidding, she's actually telling people these thing. Like the fact she loves high school musical. But as I read it, I really enjoyed it, mostly because it put a smile on my face. So I thought I would do a little confessing myself. Some of you might also read this and think are you kidding, why is she telling us this, we don't need to know that. But oh well. Here goes.
1. I once had a non-sexual crush on a married 60 year old man I worked with. Yes it's true. He was amazing. He moved to the states from Tonga, learned English, joined the church, got his Masters degree(with the help of his wife) had 11 kids; 6 who served missions and was an amazing mentor to the kids we worked with in jail. The more I think about my crush, I think it was admiration. But it got your attention.
2. I lie. A lot. Some times I don't even notice. Like when I bring you amazing soup and you ask if I made it myself and I say yes. What I mean is I bought it at Marie calendars. It's so bad that a few weeks ago we were at a family thing and I guess I lied about something. When we got home I noticed my mistake and asked Seth why he didn't correct me, he said "Oh I thought it was just one of those things you lie about." Now that's a good husband.
3. I have no fashion sense. It's true. I can some times pull off a good outfit, but most days I'm one step away from wearing white socks and tevas. Which I hear is a fashion fax puo.
4. I usually have more than one treat a day, but I'll tell you I only had one. (see #2)
5. I have a guilty pleasure that I watch on E!. I won't tell you what it is, you might judge me.
6. I didn't like Twlight. If you read my blog over a year ago, you already knew this. And please don't try and get me to read it again.
7. I saw Elton John in concert a few years ago and paid $200 for one ticket. Awesome concert, but what was I thinking blowing money like that?
8. I love doing cross word puzzles. The only other people I know who like doing cross words are my dad and Stanly from The Office. Does that make me a nerd?
9. I hate driving. I'm a horrible driver and I totally admit it. Some day when we find a money tree I'll get myself a driver. Until then I guess I'll be driving.

Man that felt good. Thanks for letting me get that off my chest. Now the question is, will I still have friends after you read this?

I Heart My Girls

A few months ago my friend Adrian from the ward offered to take pictures of my girls. I have to say she down played the whole thing and made it sound like she wasn't that much of a photographer. Then a few days ago I was looking on my friend Jenny's blog and noticed her amazing family pictures. They were done by Adrian and they were awesome. I was so impressed I called the next morning and set up an appointment. She later told me she was nervous. I would have never guessed. She was professional and great with the kids. She was able to snap 162 pictures. I even got in on a few of them.
Anyway, thanks again Adrian. I love them!! Oh and thanks Jen for letting us use your back yard. You could charge for that, you know? Your backyard is beautiful. But maybe wait for the next person who wants to use it.

Hallelujah it's almost over!!!!

I am so excited for tomorrow to be over! I decided that I wouldn't blog about politics this year. It seems to me that people either think they know what they're talking about and they really have no idea, or they do know what they're talking about and it scares me. Either way I'm so excited that tomorrow everything will end. Locally and nationally.
A few things that I won't miss: The debates- I never got to actually hear much about what the politicians thought because they were both too busy bashing each other. The Ads- again slamming the other person and nothing about the issues. Judgemental Utah Mormons-(I won't go there) Ellen Degeneres- We get it you support prop. 8! Elizabeth Hasselback- We get it you're a republican! The one thing I did enjoy.......SNL.
Wish me luck tomorrow. I'll be the dumb one who put off voting, and waited until the last day, standing in line with 2 kids.
