Things have been busier than usual around here. Hayley performed in Phoenix twice in the last week. She first dance before the Globetrotters game. She had practice before the performance in a back court where the Phoenix Suns practice. Well while they were practicing their dance Steve Nash came walkling in talking on his cell phone. He watched them practice then took a picture with them. He put his hand on Hayleys shoulder. She knew who he was a couldn't stop talking about it all the way home. They watched him shoot some hoops too. She did really well in her performance. She loves it and has an amazing teacher.

Six days later she opened for the Suns game. It's alway fun watching her dance. I'm living through my child. I always wanted to take dance. I love it.

Jace got his cast off on friday! He is still limping because he is use to his leg being heavy.

Hayley will be 11 yrs old on the 29th and is having a sleepover party. I'm making peach cobbler instead of a cake. I hope everyone has a fun time. I always worry about that. i want everyone to have a great time. I don't want my kids to have a lame-o pparty.

I'm still hitting the gym six times a week and i feel great! I have about 5 more pound to go then to just maintain. I'm the strongest i have ever been in my life and the best shape i can be in after having lots of babies.

Happy New Year!! 2009

I can't believe that it's 2009. We had friends over for a New Years Party. It was a lot of fun. At times chaotic. Unsupervised kids will make things that way. I think there were 14 kiddos running around. We played games and ate yummy food. It was just fun hanging out. All the kids stayed up til midnight including the really young ones. I can't believe they all made it. A friend brought fireworks so the kids had a blast.

We have a lot going on. Jace has a really bad sprang at his growth plate in his right foot. the dr. put him a cast to help it heal faster. He was jumping off of the stairs at the Lambs house. He needs to chill! I was dreading the first day of school because of course everyone wants to know what happened. no cool story on his dirtbike, just jumping off stairs.

We are able to stay in the house. Yeah! I really didn't feel like moving again. But we will be leaving when our contract is up, July 1st. We will be moving back into our old ward and renting a house really close to the school. my kids will be able to walk to school. i've had to drive them since we moved in 2005. so i can't wait. it is the home of our favorite sitter. her dad got a job in oklahoma so they will be moving mid June. I'm sad to Aubrey go. She is awesome. The rent is 350 dollars less a month and it's a little bit bigger then this house. still five bedroom three baths with a large backyard with a pool. so yeah for us! i can't wait to move out of this house now.

I've been thinking about making new goals or maybe i shouldn't. i hate not following through which is what i do a lot these days. I finally got around to making some very realistic goals which i'm sticking too. i really am excited for this new year and for Chandlers new project. THE PIT. I will go into that more later. I will be going there today to get more pics to post.

The kids all love their new primary classes. Hayley is in the all girls class this year. I can't believe it. She keeps reminding me one more year till young womans. what the heck!!!! jace will be in all boys class next year. he has male teachers which is a first. carters teacher is sister Carter so he thinks that is cool. And Parker is now a Sunbeam. No more waiting to put babies in nursery, no more walking the halls wondering why do i even come. no more nursing in the mothers lounge. it is a crazy phase in life that i'm entering. it's exciting but also sad. i miss having a baby. i had the worst pregnancies but was blessed with the happiest babies. Well i need to go hit the pile of laundry calling my name.
