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.

Sounds like a fun New Years. I am so glad you can stay in the house. Sounds like the move in July will be a good one though.

It is funny, you are phasing out the of the nursing baby time and I am so excited to start it again! I know what you mean about wandering the halls and wondering why you are even there. Victoria is a sunbea, this year too. It was hard for me to see her in primary! She is getting so big!

Well good luck with you goals this year. Mine are to feel better, start yoga again and not gain to much with this baby! :) Take care!

Poor Jace, I think by the time he is 12 he will have a million different casts! Glad you get to stay in the house, I bet that is a huge load off of your shoulders. Happy New Year!
TELL THE KIDS I MISS THEM SO MUCH!
