To my dear little sister Carmel, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! It is so weird that you are already so old. I remember the day you came home from the hospital and I walked you around in Mom and Dad's room and sang "Silent Night" to you because I couldn't think of any other song. You were adorable then and now you are so much older and gorgeous and so much fun. Thanks for always taking care of me when I come to visit, for sharing your room and helping me with Josh. You are such an angel to me. Don't ever lose that wonderful kindness of yours!! I love you!

fun to be with my family and Tyson's family and see some of my friends. Here are some of the best pics we got from the whole time. Let's see though, what is new since we got back...
(Sorry, the pics are all scrambled up.)
(Sorry, the pics are all scrambled up.)
Okay, so I finally sat down and downloaded the pics from the camera to the laptop. Sorry it has been forever, I just have been busy getting back into my schedule here, finished reading Breaking Dawn, started my babysitting job again, finished my writing assignment, cleaned my house, you know, exciting stuff like that. Our trip was great. I am very glad to be home and sleeping in my own bed, with of course my wonderful husband, but it was really
-Josh still hasn't gotten any more teeth, though he is drooling about a gallon onto the floor every day
-He started this new, "I growl when I want food" thing, I try really hard not to laugh and encourage the rude behavior
-As seen in the pics, Josh is learning to brush his teeth, kind of...
-Tyson has been way busy at work since school is starting this week but I am so glad once I get him home and I get to be with him and not just talk to him on the phone. We are also addicted to the show "Lost" freakin' scary, but I can't help my curiousity for how it turns out, so we keep watching it.
-I started my babysitting job yesterday, and so I babysit three kids for about 2 to 2 1/2 hours everyday. They are all great, it is Josh that is the monster to watch (he likes the cats...and their food)
-I am taking a photography class at the school, I will let you know how that goes...
-I was convinced I was pregnant again, took 2 prego tests, but both were negative, I didn't believe them, and I really was sad, but I guess I am just weird, it's not like I'm ready to have another kid yet.
-I actually go on walks everyday and I am loving the change. I feel so much better all day. I don't think I will ever run again like I used to, but I love just a little bit of excercise everyday.
And that is about it from our little family. :)

Wow, how long I have known you Heather! I can't believe that it was almost 10 years ago that I met you! I hope you are having the best of days celebrating all your happy birthdayness. :) I miss you tons and tons. I was having a hard debating on what memory I should share on my blog in memory of you. And this is the one I came up with:
I'm pretty sure we were seniors, we got a box of oatmeal creme pies, and a 2 liter thing of soda with two pretty glasses. We sat in your yard and eat and drank and spoke the entire conversation in British accents and pretended it was years from then and that we were married and had kids. It was so much fun. I always loved that about you, when I am around you anything is possible, even if it is completely pretends. You always believed I could do anything, and you always believed in me and supported the decisions I made, even when no one else would. Thank you Heather, I miss you I'm wishing you a great birthday!!! I wish I was with you!

So sorry, I have been in another world for so long, I kind of forgot about everything but being home with Tyson and trying to finish up my next writing assignment on time. So Marissa, I hope it was a great day and you did something utterly fantastic that lets you never forget it. So, one of my favorite memories of you is:
Well, one time, me and I think Kirsten, Heather and Kristen (maybe not all three, but some of them) went to your house and you opened the door with a towel around your hair and you were freaking out. You said something to the affect of, "Okay, so I was trying to dye my hair, but it went awful (something about the dye being auburn, but totally not working or maybe it was blonde, I don't know). My hair is orange, not even kidding, orange." So we all laughed, you took us to the bathroom and took off the towel and I about died, because your hair truly was flaming orange. I will never forget that face with your eyebrows raised and your lips pursed and you just furius and your hair a very Timpview patriot color. Just so you know, even if you hadn't redyed your hair that night, I still think you are so pretty you could have pulled it off no problem. :)
Wow, I have been gone for like ever. I am finally home and loving being in the quietness of just me, my hunny and my little one. Okay, we aren't that quiet, but you know what I mean. I am just so happy to be with Tyson again. I can't believe how weird it feels to be without him, like part of me was unable to function. Anyways, I gotta go eat breakfast with my hunny. We slept in forever because he stayed up til past midnight finishing the last twilight book with me. ;) So we got up way late and he is late for work, I have a very bad influence, but I don't care.
