She's Gonna Blow!

I was looking on today for some Chrismtas gifts. I ended up looking at motherhood books and some of the titles are as follows:

She's Gonna Blow! Real Help For Moms Dealing With Anger

Motherhood: The Gift (then crossed out) GUILT That Keeps on Giving

Teach Your Child To Read in 100 Easy Lessons

The Sneaky Chef: Simple Strategies For Hiding Healthy Food in Your Children's Favorite Meals

Families Are Forever If I Can Just Get Through Today

I Didn't Plan To Be A Witch and Other Joyful Surprises of a Joyful Mother

PET: Parent Effectiveness Training

What do these titles tell you about the plight of being a Mother? I think the one I most related to today is She's Gonna Blow! But seriously 100 easy lessons? Does that sound easy to anybody here? The Sneaky Chef...and code name PET I feel like I should have had CIA training for my current position. The Guilt does keep on giving! Last night I told Ammon what a good husband he is and what good care he takes of all of us he said, " Yeah, I couldn't do it without you-You do all the dirty work!" What an awesome hubby. He is so good to notice and realize how hard my new full-time job really is.

Our Rock-Climbing Adventure!

We went rock-climbing yesterday as a family. Who does that with 3 kids? We do. It was fun. Ammon, Chase and I all climbed to the top (about 60 feet.)Who knew I was that brave? Here are some pictures. As you'll see Asher let us know when it was time to go home.

Halloween Family Home Evening

We saw these cute shirts in Family Fun Magazine. So, we had a Halloween FHE. We made our cute Halloween shirts and watched "It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown." while we ate popcorn and hot chocolate. Does it get any better than that?

It's Snowing!?

We are from Mesquite, NV where it is warm...It's WARM!Now we live in Ephraim where is snows in October! Last Saturday we decided to go to the football game. It was very cold. Since we have two babies we left at halftime- on our way home it started to snow! I think Toben's face says it all.

Get him off this thing!

For those of you who don't know, Toben has been on a heart monitor. Right after he was born, the Dr. thought he heard something wrong with his heart, so we have to haul this lovely thing around for 2 months. We only have about 2 weeks left, and everyone is confident that he is just I'm ready to be unplugged. Anywhere I go I haul a 5-year-old, 2 babies, a diaper bag, and this monitor (Ugh) The other thing is that when he wiggles out of his little electrodes, the monitor goes off. It sounds very similar to a smoke alarm-that's fun in the middle of the night. We are very grateful that that is the only reason it's gone off. We have a healthy baby and are ready to be done with the heart monitor.

Toben's Look-Alike?

Okay, so maybe not. Ammon and I swear he looks like Ben off of Lost. I think it's the eyes...what do you think?

Butterfly House

Grandma Wursten got Chase a Butterfly House. We raised the butterflies from little caterpillers. We enjoyed learning about butterflies and as you can see, they really took a liking to Chase.
