Goodbye Summer

So I think our swimming days are finally coming to an end.   We started swimming the end of March and usually can swim until the end of September.  Our pool is not heated, so when the temp drops below 100 and starts cooling down at night our pool cools down too.   Today Meg didn't even want to get it, because it wasn't hot enough for her.   We will miss our pool for a few months, but looking forward to winter.   I was even shivering today, my blood has totally thinned.   I will freeze to death we go we go to Utah this winter.

So lately our little family has had a lot of trials thrown our way.    Things that have tried my faith and made me look at the bigger picture in life.   

So here are 10 things that I am grateful for:  Of course there is more, but ya know.

1.  For my three beautiful energetic kids that try my patience every day, but I love them so       much.
2.  My sweet, patient husband that still loves me even when I do stupid things.  Which is a lot.
3.  My beautiful home, even though it isn't nearly worth as much as we paid for it.  Blah.
4.  I am so grateful that my family is strong and healthy.
5.  Great friends that love and care about me and my well being.  You know who you are.
6.  A Heavenly Father who loves me and helps me get through the tough times.
7.  A temple marriage.   Knowing that my family will be together forever, no matter what 
happens in this life.   
8.  Surviving my third Arizona summer and so excited for winter.
9.  That my husband has a good job and takes such great care of us.
10. For the freedom to vote for whoever I want.  Love ya Sarah!!!

Happy Birthday Sean!!

So today is Sean's 31st birthday!    We decided it was too hard to go out to eat on a school night, so I made his favorite french onion soup.   We all had dinner and then cheesecake.    No, not homemade.   That would be way overdoing it for me.  Home made dinner then cheesecake?  Not.   It was from a box, but he loved it anyways.  We gave him Rock Band 2 and he felt bad telling me that he bought it yesterday.   At least I tried right?   I married Sean when he was 22 years old. Crazy!   I love you Sean and look forward to many more memorable birthdays with you!

Avery lost her first tooth!!!!

So a few days ago Avery came to me and said "Mom, my tooth is wiggly."  I didn't believe her, but checked it anyway and it was totally loose.   Then last night I went to dinner with some friends and came home and Sean told me that it fell out when she was brushing her teeth.   She was very excited this morning telling me all about the experience.   My little girl is growing up!  Crazy.   She put her tooth in the little locket and it is under her pillow.   The toothfairy will be visiting her later this evening.   Fun stuff!

The Buzz

So it was time once again for the dreaded haircut.    Tate screams the whole time and hates it.    This time I decided that I was going to get it buzzed, so I wouldn't have to cut it again for awhile.   Of course he screamed the whole time, but we obviously made it through it.   It makes him look a lot older, so I am not a fan.    He needs to stay my little baby boy as long as possible.   Plus it doesn't fit his personality at all.    O'well trial and error.    The nice thing is that it will probably be back to "normal" in about 2 months.
