Overall it was a full and fun day. I love being here because there is always something to do or someone to talk to. Walker had a blast too being with his cousins. We are going to have a blast today too. Tomorrow is the snowfest festival and they have a twenty foot hill built up at smith park to sled on. It is going to be fun!
I know its boring but I don't have my camera so no pictures. Maybe jax will take some.
I will post again later today on something more fun for everyone else- cuz I missed yesterday!

So, to fight off these feelings, I have started working out again. WOW! It has made all the difference. I feel like a new person, ready to take on the world. Shower and get ready and take care of walker like it IS the important thing that it really is. Working out is amazing- i don't know why it is so hard to get myself out of bed to do it in the morning, when I know how I feel afterwards. I have the most amazing husband too because he has been working out with me! Thanks to courtney and jay stocking we have P90X again and he doesn't feel like he needs to put leggings and a leotard to do the workouts. They are very, um, manly. Pullup and pushups and hard stuff like that.
If anyone has felt down, just pop in a great workout video and see how much better you feel after!
Also, I am headed to Marsh Valley (it's a high school off the freeway- in the middle of nowhere with no houses around it, i don't know where the kids come from to go there) tonight with my sister Jax. We are going to watch Kevin play against one of the best teams in the state. I love watching him play- I know it seems like I go a lot but I have only been to 3 games! I can't wait to watch him- he's so good! I take all the credit for that too...

I just need some creative ideas of fun things to do at home or if anyone has any good spots to visit any where from Tremonton (Kings???) to Salt Lake. Thanks for your help everyone!

19 years ago my little brother was born. I was only six but I too remember walking out of good old Adams elementary. I think I was wearing my purple puffy coat. I remember looking at mom laying the hospital thinking I don't ever want to do that. Everyone was so excited though because Dad FINALLY got his boy.
Kevin had no chance of being a "normal" boy with four older sisters. His favorite song when he was about 5 was Shania Twain's "Man, I feel like a woman!" Along with the Lion King soundtrack- especially I just can't wait to be king. We couldn't get all the boy out of him though because he definitely had a TON of energy and loved to fight! He would be in the tub and we would say do tough guy and he would grit his teeth and put his arms up and flex them. It was so cute! He had the chubbiest cheeks with bright blue eyes and blonde hair.
He always wanted to come and play with me and my friends- which I hated at first but then really started to like him coming along. I had watched my older sisters protect me and lift me up and I felt like I could do that for Kev. I especially loved it when he came and played basketball at the college with me and everyone thought he was to little to play so I said he could be on my team and then he showed them up (and still does).
I have always been proud of him as my little brother but I am more so now than ever before. As basketball player, he has become better than I ever imagined him being, but more importantly, I am proud of the person he has become. Landen said just a few days ago, "wow kevin has really grown up!" I completely agree (well, except for when he tries to tackle me, then I realize he is still just a little kid). I am excited for him to go on his mission and show the world the gospel. He will be great wherever he goes.
I know I haven't always taught him the right things by my example, but I hope he knows how much I love him and how proud I am of him. I know he will make the right choices in his life because he has learned the right principles.
Love you Kev.
ps. The playlist is Kev's. I had papercut on there but couldn't justify it... the whole good example thing.

He looks so good in a cowboy hat- this is at his friend Easton's house. He put it on and left it on for probably five minutes just playing with toys.
Daddy and Walker trying to catch the fish! It didn't turn out to be the most successful method until walker started hitting the fish and they would sort of pop out!
The Male version of Hannah Montana. He is almost as cute of a girl as his daddy! (see halloween post)
He loves the snow. He would go out in his diaper if we would let him. He says everyday "glovies, boots outside!"

p.s. how does the grocery smarts work? Do you have to build up a stash of coupons or does it work right away? I have the utah code and was looking at the website and it seems like you have to have coupons from the last six months- true or not?

Also, Landen went to a class today to get a concealed weapons permit. It lasted all day and he came home and said the instructor was totally crude the whole time and it drug on and on and on. He has to do more stuff to get it but he is on his way to being a bona fide 007. Ü
The broker is good- i think it will turn out as Jax suspected (me staying up all night to finish it after 300 pages of build up).

It's called The Broker by John Grisham. Anyone read it?

Walker got to stay home with daddy and gramma julie. Landen had some appointments to go to so he took walker to his mom's for part of the night. He loves going to her house though so he had a good time.
He has started doing the cutest thing ever. He will walk up to me in the middle of the day when we have been together all day and say "I miss you mommy" and just give me a big hug and then respond to himself saying, "I miss you too." And then he just walks off to play. It is sooooo cute!
He is growing up so fast it is crazy. I love him so much.

The consultant parent is one who gives their children choices, following up with reasonable circumstances. Somtimes, the best way children learn is by letting them fail. Like when they forget a homework assignment you reminded them to get ten times- let them suffer the consequences so they learn NOT to forget the assignment again.
I love the idea of giving kids choices- actually doing it is another thing. It is hard up front to watch kids struggle when you can step in and solve everything right away. If they don't learn when they are young though, they will learn later and the consequences are much steeper. For example, in the book it tells of a mother who lets her kids take out loans. She handles the loans just as if she were the bank, teaching her kids about the financial world. Promissory notes, collaterol and repossession- the whole deal. The story says she had to repo a $79 stereo from her 12year old son and was getting some flack for doing it. She responded," the neighbor boy had his 4900 dollar camaro repossessed this fall because he never learned the lesson my 12 year old just did. My boy is 12 years ahead and only lost a 79 dollar cd player."
Something to really think about.

I love the Timpanogos Temple. We went there for a wedding in december and I snapped this picture before we left. It was so fun! I want to learn more about the temple. Does anyone have any good books they have read?? I love that they theme the temple and the art usually has some depiction of the area. They told us that at the open house in Rexburg. It was really neat. Any other interesting facts?
p.s. I went to the library today- tremonton's library is tiny but there are always gems if you search. Walker wanted a book on monster trucks and we found one that is really old but fun for him. I have started him on a schedule during the day. It has been quite interesting- mostly because i haven't stuck to it at all. Just kidding. I have tried but things keep getting switched around and jumbled. He is taking naps regularly- except for Sundays because we have one oclock church. AHH! Anyways, that's what my day was like today.
