What's Up?

So I don't write on my blog as much as I want to. I still find myself creating posts in my head, but I never get to actually type them out. :) All three boys are asleep (I get to watch Jacob today, which both Josh and I are really happy about), so I have my chance. However, the camera and the cord to download pictures are in the room with one of the sleepers, so alas, no pictures. I promise, I will put up pictures of the house someday. :)

We have been crazy busy lately, I mean, not insane busy, but time just seems to be gone in a blink. I mean, last night I realized that I didn't even notice the 30th of May at all, which is my parent's anniversary, which I like to think as kind of a special day for me, since their marriage is the reason I came about and I'm thankful that they are still married and in love and that they have devoted so much of their lives to us and to each other. There are a lot of days that I just don't even notice. I blame part of that on the fact that days of the month really mean nothing to me, I am home with the boys whether it is the 1st or 21st, so I forget to care. The only days I notice really are Saturday and Sunday because that is when we get to have Tyson home all day with us.

Anyways, I ramble, what I wanted to write about is what we have been up to. Let's see (these are just the big highlights that I can think of), we moved, we painted, we fixed up the basement and now have four great girls living down there enjoying the sounds of our lovely children, our car died, Tyson's parents came to visit, Josh had a seizure, I got called as 1st councelor in Young Women's, we had our first party in our house, Caleb learned to crawl, still won't roll over, but he can crawl. What else? Tyson got poison ivy, Josh had a rash that turned out to be eczema, I finally finished my outline for my book, we bought a van, Tyson got called as Young Men's President, I went to the dentist (no cavities, huzza), Kenni and Chris left for a few weeks, making BV feel suddenly very empty, our van's tire started going flat so we got it fixed so that on Saturday we could go to the temple for the first time in 9 months.

So, as the dad from 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding' says, "there you go." ;) That is what is up with the "Coops" as we are sometimes called. And Thursday marks the two month anniversary of living in our house, I can't believe all of the above and more that I don't want to post to the entire internet, happened in just two months. It makes me tired just thinking about it. Isn't life grand that there is never a dull moment? I love it.


  1. I loved this post! Awesome that you got a van. Sounds like a lot has been going on. I can't wait to see your new house! I bet it's darling! :)

  2. Seriously, I love you!! Did Sammy die or the new green car? What a shame! I'm glad you have a van though. I bet it's nice to have with your little munchkins! I also can't believe you were at the temple on Saturday and I didn't see you! AH, we seriously need to see each other soon...unfortunately I will still be in Utah the second week of August. Maybe I can come visit in July...? Oh how I miss you!

  3. HahaHA! I love it! I love reading your posts. They always make me smile or laugh and just miss you being right next door all the more. :)
