I survived the move to the new house! ;) It's so nice to have so much more room. I have the kitchen un-packed and most of the bathrooms. Now I need to work on my bedroom and the family room.

It's been an adjustment for the kids. They love the new house,but they have been having a hard time sleeping because it's different. Camden had a better night last night,but it has been really difficult for him. His schedule is off and he always looks around the room like he's wondering,"where I am? did I get here?". I have to drive Josh to school now and since Bri sleeps later, I have to wake her up. (which she just loves!)

I've been trying to catch up on the 70 emails I had when I got back online. I feel out of touch with everything,I didn't get online until Monday. It was really weird! ;) I've got a lot of blogs to catch up on so be patient with me. Adam is gone for a few days so I probably won't be on much. Thanks for all the help from the fam and the well wishes from everyone else. :)

I'm losing my mind..

Yeah I know what you all are thinking.."Stacey,you are just realizing that?" HA HA,you are so funny.

~I am just now printing out my primary lesson for tomorrow. I was busy this past week and forgot all about it. Guess what I'm going to be doing tonight and tomorrow morning?

~I have to say thanks to Jenn for watching my kids this morning. I got a lot of packing done while I was jammin' to my iTunes. I forgot how easy it is to pack without kids "helping" out.

~I have a hot date tonight! Hubs and I are finally using the Olive Garden gift card I gave to him last Father's Day. I think we will save the movie passes for another time though. I mean,we don't wanna use up all of our free stuff in one night. I may be a cheap date but I ain't easy.

Admiration of Edward.

My hubby called me today to tell me about an article that my BIL had mentioned to him. It was on Meridian magazine's website. The author of the article praises the character of Edward Cullen for his many admirable traits. (which most of us know about already). Anyway I thought it was very well-written and I wanted to share it with you all. Clickity here if you are interested in reading it.

C'mon you know you want to read it. Go read. Now. I insist.

And this I posted just to make you smile.

This,that and the other.

I don't know if you all know this,but when you are moving it keeps you kind of busy. I made a list of things I need to get done,then I got on the computer. Makes sense,right?

~So far I have 2 full garbage bags to take to D.I. and I have thrown away 2 bags worth of junk. I've filled out change of address forms and switched utilities to our name. I still need to register Josh at his new school. Most importantly hubs made an appointment to get our internet set up. I gotta have access to my bloggy buds. It's all about priorities.

~I saw Twilight again on Saturday and I loved it..again.

~Joshua's socks are running away. Seriously. I just did laundry and there are no more to be found.

~I have another little thumb sucker. Camden sucks his left thumb when he is tired or upset. Maybe he will be left handed like his daddy. Camden is opposite of Bri who sucks her right thumb.

~My dad gave the kids a big bucket of blocks. Not just any blocks, but a million little bitty ones. Does he hate me or something?

~Camden has already bonked his head three times this morning. He's quite the little explorer.

~The other night I took Brady out of the bedroom so Josh could get some sleep. Brady got mad and said,"You're going down mama!!" Ok,bring it on!

~Brianna is becoming quite the little mommy. She helps me out with Camden and reads to him. This morning she said,"Brady,I need some space. You just gotta leave me alone for a minute.". That doesn't sound like me...oh wait.

The End.

P.S. I just found out that an old friend of mine was injured in the refinery explosion here in Utah last night. Please pray for him.

Someone else is having a birthday!

Today (Jan. 8th) my oldest turns 7 years old! It seems like just yesterday we were on our way to the hospital so that I could be induced. I was in labor all day but I had drugs so I slept most of the time. Then around 3:30 in the afternoon,my doctor became concerned about the baby's heartbeat and strongly suggested I have a C-section. Considering how long I had waited for this little baby (I had 4 miscarriages before Josh was born) I had a strong feeling that he needed to get out. I was wheeled into the O/R and at 4:00pm I heard the sweet sound of my baby crying. Then I was crying and I felt so relieved that he was alright. Later on I found out that the placenta was tearing away from my uterus and he could have drowned in blood,not to mention I could have died as well. I'm grateful every day for this sweet boy.

Happy birthday Joshie,I love you!

Someone's having a birthday!

Today is my FIL's b-day. Happy birthday Papa Joe!

Twilight DVD cover

I heard they are planning on a March or April release date. I can't wait to buy it,I hope there is a lot of extra footage!

I got the picture of the DVD cover from Summit Entertainment.

EDITED TO ADD: It looks like Twilight will be available on DVD and Blu Ray on March 21st. It is expected to include 12 deleted scenes and a music video. :D

I hope some of the deleted scenes are from the meadow shots. Then again most deleted scenes are deleted for a reason. I guess I will have to wait and see.

Guess who stood up in his crib last night? Now we have to lower the mattress so he doesn't fall out on his noggin.

We are moving!

Hubs and I are going to rent a house from my BIL and SIL. It's a nice big house with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths upstairs and a mostly finished basement with a dance studio and 3 bedrooms downstairs. Yep that's right...a dance studio so I can send the kids downstairs and let them shake their groove things,yeah,yeah. I have 3 weeks to pack and get rid of some of our junk.

It will be nice to have a place of our own again. :)
