I'm going to call this "Rabecca's Thought"
So summers is always crazy no matter how much time we have, I mean three months is a long time to get a lot done right? Ya well you would think anyway lol :P There are always family reunions, vacations, work, remember just cause the kids are home doesn't mean we can just sit at home as well.....some kid ask me what I was doing and I told him "I'm working" and he said "but it's summer!" I just laughed so hard when I heard him say that....sigh the good ol days right?
Anyway I'm getting off track where was I oh yes work lol, then there is work around the house ok lets face it we always wait to do the big house work during the summer why? Probably cause we think "OH we'll have time during the summer to do that....then here comes October and the job we wanted to do is still not even done!" Then we have swiming lessons, and camping, or getting the lawn done, gardening, well the list can go on and on as you can see. I remember being 16 years old and didn't have to worry about any of this crap lets face it the only thing we had to worry about at that age was what?? Wether or not wich CD you wanted to bring on that boring camping trip or family reunion? Or how many towesl should I bring to the pool? Kids dont know how good they have it....makes me look up to my mom now that I do have kids, a house, car, job, etc.
being a parent is a full time job its self, we went to the manti pagent with sherry and Johnnys family (NOTE to Self: never go AGAIN) and go figure I forgot to pack the kids jackets...UGH! I brought the sunscreen, water, and there pj's but...oh no...FORGOT the jackets! Remembering everything for each kid and the packing!! Lets just not go there ROFL :)
Well needless to say I have a good life :P even though it doesn't sound all that amazing, I can say this, my life is never boring....I can't remember where there was a time in any day that I sat down on that couch and thought "I'm bored" reminds me when I was talking to a friend and she was complaining because she was so bored and she didn't know what to do, I laughed and askher if she wanted to take over my life for a couple days and let me be bored! But you know what? After I had said that....I thought again about what she said and how my crazy life is and thought a new thought....and that thought was "I rather be busy in my crazy life, then to sit around and complain about how bored I was." Lets face it busy women get things done (accept forgeting about the kids jackets!!) :P

We had so much fun when Dad and Dawn and all the kids came up! It was a blast playing in the snow, playing Rock Band, talking, and just having fun when they came over for those couple day's, and thank you again for the food storage $$$ we are now growing our food storage every time I go grocery shopping.
I can not believe how much are family is growing....I'm starting to think we should go on a vacation just our little family, so my goal this summer is to save up enough money for a little trip, maybe California somewhere not too far away. My other goal is to save up for couches for our Front room, right now we have two candle holders, and two dining room chairs from the new dining room table that we just bought. Brad wanted six chairs its actually a really nice table, what we did was we picked out a table online a good and sturdy one something that will last a long long time for our family especially if I have boy's :)
Brad is doing good, right now he is car pooling to work with one of his buddies. He likes his coworkers and his job.....and when they get bored at work they just go out to eat and go bowling lol. He is still trying to get his Masters degree and will be getting it in a couple more semesters (YA!!)
Elliot....oh boy oh boy.....that kid is wild but he is sooo stinkin smart He can now count to 20 all by himself and loves to sing the abc's, he likes dancing, playing with aiden (throwing toys at his head considers playing with aiden) he also knows how to read a couple words. Did I mention he is potty trained?? I LOVE IT!!
Aiden is getting so big....today I actually told Brad "maybe we should start buying him #4 diapers!!" cause #3's are a little small :( he is also crawling EVERWHERE, and he LOVES LOVES to be cuddled with, he's my little cuddler, his favorite thing to eat right now are ghram crackers :)
I am doing great, my Mary Kay business is growing really fast I was able to buy our Fridge and our new Table with my Mary Kay Money is what I like to call it :) I love getting know people and it gives me an opportunity to meet new people. I'm still working at Golds Gym cause I just love not having to pay $$$ for a gym membership :) also I am now down 10 lbs since I've used the bodybugg I bought in January, for those who don't know what the bodybugg.....its an arm band I wear all day everyday that counts all my calories threw out the day and I have a little watch that tells me how much I've burned. It tells me what I should burn and how much I should consume in order to hit my goal, so I have to burn 2500 callories and only consume 1500 per day....so far so good :)
We are also excited for mom moving in with us this month, its going to be so nice having Aiden and Elliot knowing there Grandma Sellers.
