Home Sweet Cabin

Well another weekend at my cousins cabin in Island Park with my family. What could be better? We had a blast playing in the snow, hot tubing, sleeping, and playing Lorin's games. That kid has so many games to play. He is so SMART. We had to get out one more time before Justin has surgery on March 6th. We had so much fun with Mom, Dad, Lorin, Cassie, Dora, Vance, and of course the kids. The kids had so much fun playing with each other we really didn't need to keep our eyes on them. I ate so much junk on Friday that I ended up getting sick on Sat. but it didn't stop me. We stayed up talking on Friday night until 4:30 in the morning. Thanks Lorin, Cassie, Dora, & Vance. We love spending time with the family. It couldn't have been a better weekend. We missed the rest of you. I'm sure you are all sick of my slide shows but that is the only way you can see all my pictures. Hope you have a minute to watch.

Surgery =(

I'm so sick of Doctors offices lately. Between kids sick and Justin we have spent a lot of time there. So last week Justin's shoulder started hurting a lot to the point he could barely move it. So we got him an appointment on Wednesday and we spent the next 2 days after that getting MRI's, other x-rays and then the results. So come to find out Justin has a bone spur on his rotar cuff and a partial torn ligament. So the Dr. gave us the choice to either see if it will heal on its own or have surgery. It has been buggin him off and on since last summer so the Dr. said for it to heal on its own is very unlikely. So he gave us the weekend to see how it was doing and to think about it. So the result is to get it done. So I'll be calling on Tuesday to set up the appointment. Justin will at least be out of work for a week and maybe longer depending on how he heals up. He will have to take it easy for at least 6 weeks. I don't know what I'm going to do without his help. I've been pretty bummed about it because he is such wonderful help. Brendan has 2 ear infections also. So........ What's next!!!

Snow, Snow, & More Snow!!

This weekend Justin & I went snowmachining with his family. It was a lot of fun besides to much snow & fog. There was way to much powder that I kept getting stuck so the rest of the time I stuck to the trail. Of course the boys loved the powder. Besides the fact that Paul hit a tree!! The fog was annoying. It kept making our goggles freeze so we had to keep wiping them off every 5 seconds it sucked. But besides that it was a great day. The people that came were Paul, Deanne, John, Julene, Jace, Whitney, John's brother & sister-in-law, Rod, & Steve from Justin's work. It was fun. We finished the night off at Big Jud's which I call Big Hud's need I say more. My sister-in-law's brother Rod ate the Big Jud I was amazed. I wanted to puke for him. I couldn't even image eating that much hamburger. Can you say HEART ATTACK waiting to happen? Way to Go Rod! I was so tired and sore and have a cold on top of that, I was in bed by 9:00. Thanks to a wonderful husband who was also tired stayed up with the kids so I could go to bed. I love the snow but I'm ready for some SUN.

My Best Friend

Today Justin and I celebrate our 7 year anniversary. WOW!! I can't believe it has been that long already. We had such a great weekend just the two of us together without no kids. You forget how fun it can be with just the 2 of you without the kids screaming at you. We enjoyed a night at the Destinations Inn in Idaho Falls and a wonderful massage the next day. It was just so relaxing. I know it was not far from home but it was a night away. Thats all we needed even though we talked a lot about the kids and they weren't even with us. Thanks Paul & Deanne for taking the boys for us, we needed it. Justin is so good to me and has so much patience with me and the kids. Struggling with depression/mood swings/anxiety (whatever you want to call it) sometimes I just need out or away from things(kids)and he is always willing to let me go. I love him and he is definitely my BEST FRIEND. What a great day at church when my good friend gave the lesson about temples. I'm so glad to be married to Justin and have my family for eternity. I love him so much. Thanks Justin for the 7 years we have shared and many more to come. You are my True Best Friend. Here are a few pictures of our wedding and when we were dating. Don't laugh to hard since we have changed quite a bit (hair, weight). Enjoy!
