Random things about me

So I have never done a post like this before so I am gonna try at it. I may not have many things about me to post because I don't really think about it that much and when I do it is things that I do not really like about myself. So here you go.

1) I hate mushrooms and tomatoes. Mushrooms I hate because of the texture, and they stink when you saute them. Tomatoes I can eat if they are on a hamburger (sometimes) but not any other way. But I do like Ketchup.
2) I think that I have really hairy arms. I mean like more than any one should have. But I have seen worse so maybe it is not that bad.
3) I love being a mom, even though sometimes I complain about it.
4) I hate my hair, I do not like having natural curly hair. It means that I always have to do it in order for it to look nice. I straighten it most of the time because I just do not think that curl looks good on me.
5) I really like my feet. I think that they are cute. My toes are different but not ugly different. And i have a really high arch. I like them.
6) Some people are always cold. Mostly their hands are always cold, or their feet, or something obvious like that, well I am not so obvious, for me it is my BUM that is always cold. I have no explanation for it, it just is. I think it is funny, and it does not bother me. I think if it were my feet or hands I would hate it.
7) Deep down I do not want to be a pack rat, but I see my house and think that I am. I need to sift!!!
8) I have fat fingers!!!
9) I love cleaning out my kids earwax. EWWWWWW hahaha
10) My favorite number is 13. Has been since I can remember.
11) I look up to all of my sisters. Each of them is so different and each of them I know loves me for all of me and not just because they have to. I love my brothers too fyi.
12) I want to be the favorite Aunt, but I understand that, that most likely will not happen with all of my nieces and nephews.
13) I like to belt out singing along with music, I mean really loud and pretend that I am the famous singer.
14) I like to watch TV.
15) When people ask me what I like to do, I really do like to go on hikes and walks and stuff, I am not just saying that to make me look good.
16) I am not a morning person. I do not like getting up early ever. My daughter called me a baby this morning because when she came into my room to tell me she was awake I whined at her and told her to leave me alone. Haha yep sounds about right.
17) I like to eat (obviously) but I am not huge on sweets, it is like real food that I love. I am all about the meat and potatoes diet.
18) I hate wearing a dress. I always am afraid that it is tucked into my underwear in the back. Hate it!!!
19) I love that I no longer do the chicken peck typing and that I actually know how to type like a normal person.
20) My mom and dad are my hero's. I love them and want to be like them and have a relationship like them someday.

So this quarter in school I am taking Chemistry 121, Biology 160, and PE cross training. So far I like my classes but it is only day 3. I like how my schedule is because it gives me a chance to study in between classes and also gives me time to get my labs done, and to work out too. Baili and Kristen were able to start Head Start this quarter which is so great for them. I think that they needed to be in something and they love it. They are in separate class rooms which I also think is good for them, but they are able to see each other throughout the day weather it is out on the playground or if they ask to go and see each other their teachers will let them for just a few minutes. Baili loves learning and so she is just thrilled. Thank goodness that their dad finally was ok with them going in, other wise I think I would have thrown a fit (which would have totally been justified).
I am working towards going into the nursing program to become a RN. I have always liked the idea of being a RN and also working close with people, but I have to say that I am not so great in school. I have a hard time reading and understanding what I am reading. I learn better from first had experience and so I am constantly doubting that I can do it and make it though on the other side. But I am gonna just keep plugging along and working hard, and in turn I know that I will be blessed, and that I will do fine.
On another note it is the new year and I need to lay out my goals for this year. Last year was quite the year for me and so I am trying to just take it easy this year and not stress about much. This year I am planing on reading the BOM all the way though. I have always struggled with reading my scriptures daily so this will be good for me. Also, as I am sure almost everyone in the whole world is doing, I am going to loose weight and get into shape. My sister Shavonne and her husband Derek are helping me out with this goal too. I am embarrassed at how I have let myself go. I miss the feeling of confidence and just all around feeling good about myself. For so long I hated my life and what I let people say and do to me, and how I just ended up closing up and just becoming numb. Now it is my turn to be happy and its gonna happen this year I am sure of it. And last but not least I am going to work on being a better mother to my girls. I love them so much and they need me as much as I need them.
Sorry for the long post but I just needed to get that out there so it is done. Thanks for reading and supporting me.

Christmas Stockings!!!

This post is for my family. If you look at theirs blogs all of them have posted about the Christmas stockings they have made for thier families, or have made for other familys (like my sister Sharon made some for my girls). Here is a picture of the stockings that my mom made for all of us kids and for her and Dad, go from left to right on top and on bottom it starts with mom and dads and so forth. We each love our stockings, and we each claim ours is the best, but really if you look at them you can see that mine is so cute with the fuzy head of hair. I did not take any pictures this Christmas and I am so mad at myself. But my Mom video recorded it all so I have that. I need to put faces on the ones that Sharon made for my girls still, but they are really cute and I love them. Thank you Shari for making them.

Post because it has been a while post

I know it has been a while since I have posted and I feel really bad for not posting in a while so here it goes. Trish and Kaleb came over at the begining of December and make gingerbread house with me and the girls. It was so much fun. Kristen I am sure ate about 1/3 of the tub of frosting and used about 2 pound of candy right on the top of her house. She looks a little crazed in this picture, I think it was kicking in at that point.

It was a fun family activity and I am so glad that Trish and Kaleb came over to do it with us. The girls love them so much as do I.

Krsiten was having a moment of throwing a fit so she ran to the couch and hid under the blanket after 5 minutes I went to talk to her and she had fallen alseep. She is funny.
This is Kristen on her 4th birthday!!! I cannot believe how the times flys by. She makes me smile everyday and she had a great birthday too!

Well Baili is not such a little girl anymore. She lost a tooth!!! She was so excited for the tooth fairy to come. I was planing on giving her 2 dollars from the TF. I thought that was a good amount for the first tooth. But then my ex-husband stepped in and left 5 dollars to be left for her from the TF. I thought that was way too much, and I was not going to give her that much, but then I was worried that he might take me to court for not giving Baili her "gift" (which is typical of him to do, or at least threaten me to do that) so I ended up just giving her the 5 dollars and calling it good. I left fairy dust for her and a note. She was pretty excited the next morning. She has another loose tooth but it has been loose for about a month now, so we are still waiting for that one to come out.
This is the tooth while it was still in. You can see how dead the tooth is. Uncle Ian helped get the tooth out, as did Aunt Shavonne. In the end I pulled it out.
