ok so the other day I was walking in the Target parking lot and saw this fabulous sticker on someones bumper...."save the tatas" I was laughing so dang hard. So I looked up the website when I got home. I want a "save the tatas" bumper sticker really bad, but I don't think Josh will let me....it might turn some heads at church. :)

Apparently I am a corvette....take the quiz!

I'm a Chevrolet Corvette!

You're a classic - powerful, athletic, and competitive. You're all about winning the race and getting the job done. While you have a practical everyday side, you get wild when anyone pushes your pedal. You hate to lose, but you hardly ever do.

Take the http://www.tomorrowland.us/sportscar">Which Sports Car Are You? quiz.

Dedication to Nana

As you can see, Trish has decided to dedicate the blog background to National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. My mom's mother, 'Nana', died of breast cancer May 20th, 2000. It's easy for me to remember the date because I entered the MTC May 24th, 2000. My mom did't want to tell me Nana had passed because I was so excited to go on my mission, and she didn't want me down. I told my mom she was part of the reason I was going, and her passing was a big part of the gospel message. Nana wasn't an LDS member, but was greatly involved and interested in our church activities. I would think to myself all throughout my mission that perhaps she was there, listening to the message I shared with the people (even though it was in Thai). She had a long battle with cancer, and it was tough to see that take such a toll on such a wonderful person, and family. She was the best grandma in the entire world, and being the second oldest grandchild, I was really close to her. I tell Trish all the time that Nana would have loved her! I really do miss her a lot, and this month is special to me. A personal reason for the construction project I am working on (Cancer Treatment Center of America) is Nana. I know she loved me, and we love her so much.

Have you ever wondered??????

Have you ever wondered what your family really thinks about your cooking? Especially your kids? Well I must say, I always wonder what josh thinks....he is always so good about eating whatever I make. Today for the first time I wondered what little Braden thought.....but I need not wonder any longer. This afternoon I made Braden some fabulous mac and cheese. Every kids fav right? Well...I put bradens fabulous lunch in a bowl and put it on his tray for him to start eatin away. Everything was fine until I turned around and noticed that he had only taken like one bite of his lunch. He decided that something else was better.....I am sure you can only imagine. Thats right, he was picking his nose and eating it. So there is my answer...braden does not like my mac and cheese. SAD!!!

Speaking of Braden, alot of you know about us getting him help for his speech delay. Yesterday two girls from the arizona early intervention program came over to discuss what their board of therapists decided to do with braden. They are going to be sending a developmental therapist over once a week and a speech therapist over once a month for three months to work with him one on one. When they came over a couple of weeks ago to do their evaluation of him, they found that he scored age appropriate for everything but his speech. Once he turns three, he is turned over to the school district for continued help. This is the part that I am so excited about....On his third birthday he will be then old enough to attend a preschool FOUR DAYS A WEEK for 2 1/2 hours a day. They will be using a normal curriculum and if he shows that he needs additional help with his speech they will have a therapist there to work with him in the classroom. I am so excited. He will have a blast in there. It's a little weird to think that my baby boy is going to be going to school. It's kind of sad to tell ya the truth. I know its a blessing that we live in a country that provides things to children like braden that need a little push to get them going.

My Husband is having an identity crisis

Ok, so today Josh decided to confess something to me. He listens to Christmas music at work when he is there alone. I think I almost peed my pants laughing.....then I noticed a little twinkle in his eye. One that I have seen before...when I was real young. Then he started to chuckle like an extremely overweight old man would....so I said..."Santa, is that you?" I am convinced that I am married to Santa Claus himself. As you can see in the picture above, he is kind of Jolly....(and a bit of a weirdo).

All joking aside, my husband loves christmas...as do I. Thats explains the random christmas back ground. I thought that I would dedicate this weeks blog background to Joshua and his fabulous christmas spirit. As soon as Halloween is over my christmas decorations are going up baby. I think I am such a big fan of christmas because it means its under 100 degrees here and I can wear pants without sweating so bad that they stick to my legs. yuck!!! Christmas time also means that Home Alone will be playing on every t.v. channel available. I can't wait.
