I was Tagged

Sorry it has taken me so long to even know I was tagged. Things have been crazy here. We are getting ready to visit family on tuesday.

Anyway I didn't even know I was taged until Jared called this morning to tell me that he might get to go up in his bosses airplane with him. Which is cool and scary at the same time, becasue what kind of plane do you here about crashing. All the privite planes. But he was super excited so I am excited for him. Then he told me he was looking at Justin and Stacy's blog and that I had been taged for something. So I got my lazy butt out of bed to see what he was talking about and well here we are.

Here is what it is all about:
You have to take pictures of your toilet, sink, laundry room, fridge, closet, favorite shoes, favorite room, and your kids. And you can not cheat, just get up and begin taking pictures. It was so hard not to want to cheat. Plus my list is backwards.

The kids and Emily. We had a movie night so she spent the night. So the kids are all over her. They love their Aunt!

I love my bed room. Though I think I want a change in it. But I love the way it is set up. I don't spend much time in it, but i like it a lot.

These are my second fav. My fav seems to be missing in action. Which means Benntte took off with them and know I am on the hunt to find them.

It isn't nomally this messy,(though I amd sure jared is reading this and saying "yeah right") but for some reason Jared like to throw my clothes on top of the hangers instead of hanging them up. Which I hate, what I hate even more is when he does hang them up he will hang them up inside out. I don't know why but it just bugs the crap out of me.

Also what usually happens when I open the frige. Bennett is alway right there to climb in it. Everytime it is like some sixth sense. "mom is about to open the
What usually happens is the dryer is full of balls, Bennett loves to play with all the balls in the basement. Which I have a pic of that will be posted later.

It was clean but all the cleaning things are still out.

Thank goodness the lid is closed, I am cleaning that today.

Have fun girls!! Love ya!


A friend of mine had this on her blog and it was fun to see all her friends and families memories. So I decided to put it on mine.

1. As a comment on my blog, leave a memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments. If you want to leave a memory about Jared, that's fine too!

funny things kids say!

While leaving a friends house. Tyson was whining because he didn't want to go, and Bennett was crying because he was tired. Then Derek says shaking his head " My brothers are such babies." I was laughing all the way home.
We went to a birthday swim party and one of the members in our branch was asking Derek if his dad had big muscles and he said "He has a big belly". They just say it as they see it. But dad's belly is shrinking so it wont be big soon, plus it isn't super big now. We love you dad!!
When Mark (grandpa smith) got his first leg cut off. Derek told him "that he needed to get a new doctre because he cut your leg off". Derek is just so matter of fact about things sometimes.
One day on the way to church Derek was humming Indiana jones theme song. Jared said are you singing Derek and He said "No my nose is". Becasue he was humming.
Most of the funny stuff Derek as said. Tyson is more of a Dancer and funny tricks. They are all great boys and are making us laugh all the time.

For a friends birthday we went bowling. The boys had a blast. Even Bennett rolled the ball down. It was a lot of fun.

4th of JULY!

We had a blast on the 4th. We went swimming, cooked out, went to a movie, watched fireworks. All in all it was a great night spent with family.

Working on!

This is what I am making right now. This one was actually done by my friend Brooke. She is sewing like crazy and taking me along with her. It has been a lot of fun. But for now the fun is on hold, because Bennett has been so sick with ear aches. He has been throwing up non stop on Sunday. I mean all day and all night. I was worried he was going to get dehydrated, because he couldn't keep anything down for very long. He is doing really good to day. He hasn't thrown up so that is a total plus. He is actually wanting to play and things. You feel so bad for them when they are sick. If I could I would totally take their place. So that is what we are up to now. Jared is back at the old grind stone.
