Eight months old!

I can't believe it, Ian turned eight months old today! Time flies by way to fast, and I know someday I will wish I could come back to these days and just hold my little boys. Wait I already do..... So in honor of Ian turning eight months old, I am going to write eight things I always want to remember about him:

1- I love how happy you always are!! You smile all the time, even when you are mad, you will squawk really high pitched, and loud, and then smile at me..... You are so stinkin' cute!! (which leads to our next one)

2- I could just eat you up, I love love love to kiss you, sometimes I just mall you with kisses.... mmmmm. I just can't get enough of you.

3- You are such a momma's boy, and I love it! Maybe someday I will wish that you weren't, but I really don't think that day will ever come... When I hear you cry for me when someone else is holding you, or look around the room for me, I love it!

4- You love your brother, he can do anything, and you smile for him.... Even when he is loving on you a little too rough you still just smile, and kind of look at me like Help!?

5- You have the sweetest little spirit, and you can melt people with your sweet little looks and smiles!!

6- You say mamama mamama babababa when you are sad, (in this broken hearted little voice) and it melts my heart.

7- In the morning you get so excited to see us, you just smile, and coo.... You and your brother are such morning birds, it makes me happy, even though I am not much for mornings :)

8- You hate food, you gag on everything, and I mean everything... Well you do like sweet potatoes (I am afraid to feed you too many though, because I don't want you turning orange)

I love you so much Ian Russel!

I have been tagged again

Tari, and Janice tagged me with this one....
Here are the rules. You must post the rules before you give your answers. You must list one fact about yourself for each letter of your middle name. Each fact must begin with that letter. If you don't have a middle name, just use your maiden name. After you've been tagged, you need to up-date your blog with your middle name and answers. At the end of your post, you need to tag one person for each letter of your middle name. (Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged and need to read your blog for details).
I don't have a middle name, so my maiden name is Cook.
C- this is a lot harder than you would think, or at least it is for me, so maybe cooking? I love to cook yummy fattening foods, healthy recipes, not so much..... I know terrible huh. Some people get a thrill out of making them low fat etc. Not me (no wonder I have a hard time losing weight) ;)
O- o is for........ ummm....... ummmm...... If I were stephanie it would be easy because I could say organized but me, not so much...... ummmm..... oh I thought of one, I like to oil paint. I haven't done it forever, but I love too.
O- not another one.... well since I would like to lose fifteen more pounds, I will put overweight... I don't know if it will ever happen because of all those yummy carbs out there just calling for me :)
K- k is for my two amazing kids!! What would I ever do without them?? Get my hair done, get the house clean..... probably, but who wants that when you get to see those cute little chubby smiles, coo's, and "Mom who made the mountains?"

Well that was a hard one, I am not sure I want to inflict it on anyone else, but since it says it in the rules....... Nikki good luck with Cook, Stephanie, Jennifer you better do it, and Emily C.

Happy Anniversary Court!

Today is Court and I's sixth anniversary :) So I decided to write six of my favorite things about Court,

He is such an amazing daddy, when he comes home, both Easton and Ian get so excited!!

He is the sweetest guy I have ever met, he does little things for me that I would never think of, that mean so much!

He loves everyone!! It doesn't matter who they are, what they have done, what they look like. He loves them, (this is one of my favorite things about him)

He will go to any chick flick with me, and not only will he go, he doesn't complain like most guys would, he doesn't make fun at the cheesy parts. (I think most of the time I think he enjoys them as much as me :))

He is honest, trully honest..... There has never even been a moment in our relationship where I have had to worry about him lying.

He works so hard for our family, and is such a good example. I hope that our boys can grow up to be just like him!

These are only a few of the reasons that I love him so much, and am so gratefull for the oppurtunity that I have had to be married to him!

I love you so much Court, you are the greatest husband ever!!

To talk or not to talk...

Okay, so most of you that know me, know that I love to talk! One on one, or in small groups, it doesn't matter. I love adult conversation, (kid conversation is fun too, but I get that all the time). Sometimes after leaving girls nights, or play dates though, I will think oh man.... I think I said too much. Or, those people probably think I am crazy. The reason why I feel this way is because when I get uncomfortable, or if it gets too quiet (I really do like quiet, but in big groups, new groups etc. silence gets me all squirmy) I start to joke, or tell things about myself..... I don't know how it happens, they just come out. I will tell funny things that happened that day, embarrassing things, or just plain old weird things... I told my little sister once, that she probably takes me places just for the pure entertainment of what I will say. She is so quiet, (not a bad thing by the way, wish I could be) so I end up being the one talking to everyone. (I really think somewhere in the back of her mind she thinks how in the world are you my sister :)). There is a but to this though, a big but.... I cannot speak in public, I shake, I stutter, I am constantly reminding myself bend your knees, bend your knees.... The last thing I want to do is pass out in front of everyone ;) It wouldn't be a new thing as most of you know.... And I get so nervous that I start to talk at the speed of light, which turns my ten minute talk into a three minute blur.... When we first moved into this ward, and the bishopric asked us to speak, three days before we were supposed to, the doctor told me I had to be on bedrest (I would say I lucked out, but I am pretty sure I would rather have taken my turn at the pulpit, than spent the 22 weeks in bed). Well I guess the bishopric heard about us getting an offer on our house, because they asked us to speak in Sacrament meeting next week. I know, I know we could have said no, but there is something in me that can never say no... Not to anything, well probably some things (like giving blood, even just typing that right now makes me all qweezy... yuck!) Wow see my train of thought is all over the place just thinking about speaking... Well wish me luck and hopefully I won't shake the pulpit off of the stand ;)

"I don't need a girlfriend........"

Yesterday my grandparent's gave all of the great grandchildren some heart shaped sugar cookies (they were so so so good! But how couldn't they have been, my grandma made them!) My grandpa turned to Easton and asked...... "So Easton do you have a girlfriend?" I think Easton was disgusted with the question, because he gave my grandpa a funny look, and said.... "No..... I got Kobe!" Kobe is his best friend/cousin..... here is a picture of him from Easton's birthday party, I couldn't find one of them together, and I thought this one was so cute of him with a pouty lip.

So this post is for Kobe, thank you for being Easton's friend, and cousin, because of you, he doesn't need a girlfriend :) Love you Kobe! Easton can't wait to see you again.....

Thanks for tagging me!!
Two Names You've Gone By: Kristi, Kristine
Two Thing I Am Wearing Right Now: I have been cleaning, so sweats, a t-shirt, and my favorite boots my hubby got for me for christmas. I know funny outfit, but the boots are so comfy, and my feet get cold so easy I wear them almost all the time :)
Two things you Want (or have) in a Relationship: Love, Honesty
Two of Your Favorite Things to do: Spend time with my family, Blog :)

Two people you Last Talked To: Court, and Easton
Two things You're doing tomorrow: Going to church, probaby going to Tridell.
Two Longest Car Rides: From Kona to Hilo Hawaii, our flights got delayed so we got into Kona late we were supposed to meet some members Court knew on his mission, and have dinner with them. By the time we finished dinner at their house (tent :) ) and had to drive to our hotel in Hilo it was 11:00 pm their time, 3:00 am our time. Not a very good time to start a 2 1/2 hour drive! We had to stop and Court got an energy drink. I am ussually the one who can stay awake while driving, not that morning, it was pretty scary. They had asked us to stay with them, we really probably should have! I can't think of any others off the top of my head, maybe from St George to vernal by myself, I had been down at training, and had something I had to make it back for, it just seemed like a really long drive.
Two Favorite Holidays: Easter, and Halloween
Two Favorite Drinks: My favorite, that I have had to give up :( Dr. Pepper, and probably Orange Juice...?
Two Things About Me you may not have known: The one thing I am probably ocd about, is my sheets and blankets on my bed, they cannot have one wrinkle in them when we go to bed, if I can feel any bumps, wrinkles, or if they are crooked at all, I can't go to sleep. The sheet has to fold over the top of the blankets just perfect etc. Kind of weird because I am not that way about much else. The other one, is that most of you probably don't know yet that we accepted an offer on our house, and the tentative closing date is March 10th....... bittersweet....
Two jobs I have had in my life: My worst job ever was as a tellamarketer for worldcom wireless... yuck!! We still had so much fun though, the people I worked with were great! And Cellularone.
Two Movies I would watch over and over: How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days, and Pride and Prejudice. (I am a sucker for love stories!!)
Two Favorite Foods: I love my Grandma's homemade Rolls!! I love anything home baked!
Two places I'd rather be right now: ummm anywhere warm..!! Hawaii, and lately we have been talking about going to Sea World again, last time Easton was too little. I think he would love it!! Anyone else want to come? It would be so fun to go with a group!!
So I will tag, Emily Willardson (next time you check your blog) :) Nikki, Jesenia, Jennifer, and anyone else who is reading this that hasn't been tagged :)

Happy Birthday Kelsi!

Today is our little angel Kelsi's birthday, she would have been five years old. It is not a sad day, more a day of remembering, and a day of thankfullness. How gratefull I am for Temples, for eternal families, for the gospel, and the knowledge that we can be together forever! I cannot imagine how hard it is for people who do not have the gospel, who think that they have lost their loved ones forever. When we had Kelsi, a nurse there was so amazing!! She said some of the most kind and thoughtfull things to help us get through it. She said, "Just remember that all she needed was to come here and get her little body, and you two had the oppurtunity to give her that.... She was so righteous in Heaven that she didn't need to go through all of the trials here on earth." She also reminded us that we were so lucky to have the church, to also be sealed in the temple, and for the opportunity to know that we could be with her again in Heaven. Thank you, thank you to that nurse, who had the opportunity to help us remember our blessings at a time of trial, and for taking it. I cannot believe the love that we recieved at that time! We came home to a cleaned, and organized house. There were flowers all over every counter, and food stacked in the fridge. We got notes of love and support, and priesthood blessings. I cannot thank you all enough! I would also like to take this oppurtunity to thank my Heavenly Father for all of the blessing that we recieved then, and have recieved. I am so gratefull for all of the times he blesses me, when I feel unworthy of those blessings. I cannot thank him enough for letting me and my husband be raised in the gospel, with active families, for eternal marriage, for our beautiful family, and for our beautiful little Kelsi who will be waiting on the other side for us! I will try my hardest to keep myself worthy, so that we can all be together again, forever! Happy birthday Kelsi, we love you so much!! (My mom made the most georgeous flower arrangement ever for us, for her birthday!! Thank you mom, I love you! If you look close, you can see a little angel in it :) )

I took Tari's test

So I was looking at Tari's blog this morning, and she had this test on there. When she took it, it told her she was 33 I think? Well when I took it, dun da da duuuun.... It said I was 26... I just thought it was funny that it guessed my exact age :) I am not sure it is a good thing or not though. So now I will be really embarrassed if all of you take it and you are thirty something too, like Tari.

You Act Like You Are 26 Years Old

You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel like an adult, and you're optimistic about life.
You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.

You're still figuring out your place in the world and how you want your life to shape up.
The world is full of possibilities, and you can't wait to explore many of them.

Ian was so sick last night, we didn't finally get him to sleep until after two, then he woke up around six (I think, I can't quite remember, I think I was half asleep or full asleep while I was feeding him). I have never seen him act this way, crying and crying, then screaming... I would finally get him to sleep, move a tiny bit, and he would start to scream. I got fully dressed to take him to the emergency room, and while I was dressing, he fell asleep on Courts chest. Anyway, we swapped him, and finally made it back to bed with him in between us. I hate it when your kids are sick, and you don't know what to do! I made an app. with the pediatrician this morning, so we will see, sounds weird but I really hope they can find something, sore throat, ear infection etc. If they don't I think I will worry more, because I know something was wrong, he wasn't just fussy, you could tell he just hurt! One more thing though, I thought was funny, my sister called me last night (who doesn't have a blog) and said I have a whole bunch of computer nerds for a family, man here I go to work and you guys are all playing on the computer. It was really funny, so will give a shout out to Rusty, hard at work, while the rest of us play at our computers ;)
