3 Days Till All Hell Brakes Loose!

In 3 days we will be having a sibling get together at our house. Can you say complete craziness and fun? There will be 14 adults & 18 kids all under the same roof, and we can't wait. My best memories growing up are spending time with our cousins, especially around Christmas. I can't wait for my kids to have the same fond memories of there cousins. I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas, and to all my siblings drive safe and we'll see you soon.

Happy 8th Birthday Micah

I can't believe it, but my boy is 8 years old today. Time has really flown by. I can't imagine our family without Micah. He has ALWAYS put a smile on my face and those around him. He is such an easy kid and tries to enjoy life to it's fullest. He is famous in our house for his one liners and LOUD voice. We are very proud of him and his decision to be baptised. I love you Micah and am so thankful your our boy.

Happy Birthday Little Brother

Today is my youngest baby brothers Birthday. He is the ripe old age of 17. I was a freshman in college when he was born. I distinctly remember the first time I saw him in the hospital. He was lying there but naked and man was that boy endowed, if you know what I mean. My mom loved making costumes for him and my little sister who was only 21 months older than him. I loved this costume she made for him. It was probably his first Halloween and he is Sebastian from the Little Mermaid, love the red dye in your hair. (Molly was the Little Mermaid of course.) I know he still loves dressing up and will appreciate this flashback. Love you little Sambo and hope you have a great one.

I chose this picture for all my Bailey peeps out there. I love this picture for so many reasons. This is one of my last memories of the Bailey family together before Grandpa died. We were at the Mesa, AZ Temple Visitors Center. What a reunion that was, and boy have things changed. I would love to hear any comments from those of you who were actually old enough to remember this reunion. Thanks for the memories.

Christmas Cards

I love getting and giving Christmas Cards. It is one of my most favorite things about Christmas. Today I finally received my very first Christmas Cards of 2007. I have been waiting for this moment since Dec. 1st. My awesome SIL's Memzy/Emily & Cheryl were my very first arrivals. They were both so cute and creative and literally put a smile on my face. I have already displayed them on my cute Card holder in my Kitchen. I have to admit, it is a bit of a status symbol for me to be able to display the Christmas cards we receive. What can I say, it makes me feel loved. I have put some extra thought into my Christmas Cards this year and am so proud of how they turned out. Hint: If you send me a Christmas Card this year you will be lucky enough to receive one of my special cards, along with my yearly update/brag on the fam. Thanks again to my SIL's for the Christmas Cards, I loved them. Be waiting anxiously by your mail box for mine.

Okay, I have to say a few things about this video. This is the 1st time I have ever put an old home video on my blog and it took me a few hours to figure it out, but I did.(Good thing there was nothing I wanted to watch tonight and the kids could take care of themselves.) This is one of my most favorite videos of all time. Blythe had just turned 3 and I had put her into this little dance class in Bakersfield. She loved it! This was the video of her 1st recital and I believe it was in Dec. of 2004. She has always been a girly girl and loves putting lip gloss and lipstick on. She would always try and kiss Grandma Waite hoping to get some of her lipstick on her lips. We had no idea of the fact that she had smuggled her own lip gloss into her leotard before the recital. It was so funny how she started to pretend putting it on and then went "wait I think I might just have some on me." For the record she was completely humiliated when she saw me viewing the video. She has no recollection of the event, but now You will. Enjoy my 1st Video for FHVD!

I've Been Sick!

I have been so sick and feel like I have been in a come for a month. I wake up and there's a foot of snow on the ground outside my kids look like orphans and the house looks like it's been hit by a tornado. That's what getting strep and doing nothing about it until you can't stand will do to you. I did get a good laugh from the nurse. I opted for the penicillin shot instead of a prescription. She walks in the room with this huge needle and says "I need to give this to you in your butt MUSCLE." I laughed out loud and pulled my pants down. There ain't no MUSCLE down there missy, but she shot away. It's Sunday and I'm feeling much better. I missed out on tons this weekend and am sad about that but glad to be back on the mend. Brigg & Hayden had there first wrestling tournament this weekend. Brigg took 1st & Hayden took 3rd. I'm very happy it's finally December (and I don't have to hear that stupid song every time I pull up my blog.) Hope you all are doing well. I'm hoping to find a great pic or video for tomorrow so stay tuned.
