The Adventures of Thanksgiving Day!!

So last night I was up until 11pm peeling and cutting up apples for 4 pies! They are soooo good! These are pies made from scratch so it takes a little more work but they taste so good you do it anyway. So anyways I started at 8pm and finished at 11pm. Finally got to bed at about 11:30pm. Kylee woke up at 12:30am, ate a bottle and went back to sleep by 12:45ish. Then I had a hard time going back to sleep even though I was exhausted. I finally fell back to sleep at around 1:30am. Then Billy got home at 3:30am and talked to me for a minute and we caught up on each others day. He went to sleep by 4am and I once again had a hard time going back to sleep. I fell asleep by 4:30ish. Then in walks Mattie at 7am bright eyed and bushy tailed. Me not so much. I then decide okay I will just get up and go to the 5k Turkey Trot that Tara and some of her friends put together. Of course I had to take both my girls with me because I would NEVER make Billy miss playing football on Thanksgiving Day. Little note I am not being sarcastic, I am dead serious. That would pretty much be the worse thing you could do to Billy, for reals! Anyways So I got Mattie all dressed and ready and then WOKE Kylee up so I could go. Me and the girls had fun walking with Celena (sorry if I spelled it wrong). Celena is a rock star she actually pushed the stroller most of the way. It was perfect weather! Then after finishing the walk (which we started at about 8:30am) I hurried home to shower me and both my girls by myself because daddy was still playing football. So as I am getting out of the shower with girls Billy came home. I was thinking "Yahoo, he's home". He comes in to tell me he is heading over to the emergency room because he broke his nose playing this game he loves so much! Now I am thinking "Oh crap, he's going to the E.R.". So he hurries over there and I finish getting the girls ready for our Thanksgiving meal that is planned out in Mesa with Erin and Steve at Steve's parents. Then I peeled and cut up a bag of potatoes for Billy to take mashed potatoes to work. We were suppose to leave at 10:30am. Do you think that happened?? ha, ha The answer is NO! So I pack up all my luggage for me and the girls to head out to Mesa, WITHOUT Billy. He was going to meet us there. Anyways, Billy fractured his nose and luckily they said he didn't need to have it set but it still cost us $100 bucks. Oh well I am just very glad he is okay. So we were suppose to eat at 12pm but ate at 1pm instead. Billy finally got there after we had all finished eating and had EVERYTHING cleaned up and put away. We enjoyed our time together and then kissed goodbye after 2 hours when Billy headed off to work. Love you honey! Have a great day at work and I hope you don't hurt to much. By the way dinner was good but I really missed having mashed potatoes. Mashed potatoes is no joke my favorite part of Thanksgiving. I eat tons of mashed potatoes with my mom's homemade rolls and yummy pumpkin pie. So after my ranting of my Thanksgiving day I just wanted to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Birthday Mattison!!

Happy Birthday Mattison!! My baby girl turned 4 years old on the 17th of November. Sorry it has taken so long to get pics up! We had so much fun with our big girl. Billy and I took her on a birthday date. She was so excited to have mommy and daddy all to herself. We went to "Uncle Donald's" which translates into McDonalds for a happy meal. Mattie calls it uncle Donald's because she watches Hughey, Dewey and Lewey :). Anyways the happy meal was a Madagascar toy which fit perfectly because that is where we were headed, the movie theater to watch Madagascar 2. We all liked the movie and we had a lot of fun. I want to say thanks to my mom for watching Kylee for us so we could have some one on one time with Mattie Moo!! I love my baby girl so much that I can hardly stand it :) These are all great pics of Mattie opening her birthday gifts from mommy, daddy and sister. We love you big girl!!
P.S.
Lots of great posts to come since I haven't been able to post for a few days. Stay tuned for some laughter!hee, hee :)

Kylee is 1!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY KYLEE!!

video
Since my parents and Billy's parents are out of town (Billy's permanently, mine until Sunday night :) ) I took some video of Kylee opening her presents. She was so cute opening her presents. I hope you enjoy as much as I did! I can't believe she is 1 year old.

Here are a few pictures of Kyky with her presents. I she loves Mickey Mouse so much. If she sees him on tv she gets so excited and does the face with her raised eyebrows. I love that face so much!

Here is one more video to enjoy! Happy birthday baby girl!! Mommy and daddy love you so much and we are so glad you have come to our family:) !!

Fashion Week with Mattison!


Continuing fashion week with Mattison :) I am actually very proud to say Billy dressed her today!! He is one great daddy. I came out of my bedroom and Mattie was all dressed and ready for school, hair done and all. Her lunch was packed and she was kissing me goodbye! I have one amazing husband. When I picked Mattie up from school today Ms. Marcy said all the girls are in love with her boots! I was laughing so hard. I am so scared because we haven't told Mattie yet that starting in January she is only going to preschool one day a week instead of 3 days like she is now. It is just to much for us to pay with the way things are. It makes me very sad though because school has been great for her. I will still keep doing school work with her at home but she won't get as much of the classroom experience which she loves. I know it is all going to be fine, but as her mommy I obviously want to give her what she wants and what will help her to grow and learn. I am sure I will put off telling her until the end of December. Is that a bad idea??

Back to Preschool!!


Mattison was soooooooooo happy she could go to preschool today with Ms. Marcy. She normally goes to school Tuesday through Thursday but because of Veteran's Day she had to wait until Wednesday to go to school. It is only one day difference but to my to my little 3 year old (almost 4, on Monday-ahhhhhh) it might as well have been a week! So when on got her bathed and dressed for school and had her hair done she was liking running out the door. So she loved her little boots she got to wear today. Billy said he didn't know how he felt about them because they look like boots that belong on a girl that stands on the street :)! I was laughing so hard when he said that. I then proceeded to tell him that for a 3 year old it is okay because her fellow preschool classmates wouldn't know that. ha, ha I still can't stop laughing. I thinks adorable and her preschool teachers first comment when Mattie got out of the car was "Oh my gosh you look so cute. Now my girls are going to want boots just like yours. Thanks a lot Brianne". I just looked at Billy and laughed then I said to him "Told you so!" Anyways, welcome back to school Mattie Moo!! Mommy and daddy love you!

Hard Day, Time to Relax!!




Billy and I loved this picture and couldn't stop laughing. Kylee is so relaxed eating her bottle. She stayed that way the whole time. I love seeing my girls just being themselves.
I love this picture of Kylee because you can see her adorable rolls :). She is starting to show a more feisty side, for real!! She is just looking at Billy and I like what?? Also why are taking a picture of this?? So I plan on doing a nice big post about Mattison since the past 2 posts were more about Klyee :) I sure love my little family and can't wait until they have a brother to boss around. No Tara that was not an announcement!!!

The life of an 11 month old


My name is Kylee and I turn 1 in 8 days! This is a glimpse of my day for you, for warning it is rough to watch :). First I find any excuse to take my clothes off. Next we get dressed in costumes and visit daddy at work. (Yes this is a typical day for me ha, ha).


Then I play with my life sized teletubbie! Isn't she so cute :)!! I just love those big ears and that giant thing stick up out of her head.







Here is me with all my peeps. We all got dressed up on the same day what a coincidence!
Then I climb in the cabinets, which is one of my favorite things to do. It always seem to me though that if I do this cabinet thing for to long my mom lays me down for a nap. Oh no here she come. Goodnight!
Okay so that nap actually felt good. Don't you love my crazy hair. My mom's personal night time hair dresser "Rolf" does my hair now too and he even does mine during nap time. I'm so lucky :)
Now it is time to make a mess with my sister. I think you could say mission accomplished. My mom usually has sister's clothes all very nicely organized on each shelf. I just wanted to make sure she had something to do the next day to keep her busy. I don't want her to get bored :)
I being almost 1 it is great. It is hard sometimes but somebody has to do it!!

We will miss you Joe!

Today was the funeral services for our family friend Joe Charnoki. Joe will be greatly missed by all who knew him. There were many people who attended the services today. I think he was smiling down on all of his loved ones today. My heart especially goes out to Cindy (his wife), Daniel, Amy and Justin his children and all his other family and friends. I am grateful to know that right now he is being taught the gospel, most likely by my Grandpa Weathersby. After the services family and friends went to my parents house and had a luncheon. We also had an empty saddle ceremony. Daniel lead Joe's horse around in a circle while a cowboy sang a couple cowboy songs Joe liked. While this cowboy played his guitar my dad read a poem about a fallen cowboy and how he will be missed. I was very touched. In fact I was more moved by the empty saddle ceremony than by the catholic services. I don't mean that disrespectfully. They did this same ceremony at my grandpa's funeral. I was unable to be at my grandpa's funeral because I was serving a mission in Oregon. So the ceremony meant even more to me. I was so emotional during the ceremony but it was a positive feeling because I know Joe was there. Thank you Joe for being you and I love you!

Obama=Last Days!!!

It is official Obama won the Presidential elections! I was so ticked off last night I could hardly breath. Billy finally told me I had to go to bed because I was being grumpy. I didn't argue that because I knew it was true. Something I don't understand about the elections.....why do I vote?? If there is such thing as electoral votes then why do the people of this great country vote? Anyway sorry I am being such a bummer but I am really upset that Obama won. It is just a sure sign of the times. I agree with my mother 100%, 2 words now that Obama was elected...Food Storage! So anyway I guess I obviously can't change what has been done but I will keep praying for this beautiful country and follow the direction of the true leader of this great land and all the world.....President Thomas S. Monson, prophet, seer and revelator of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. God bless America. I may start to have to follow the lead of Julianne and write something I am grateful for everyday this month (or the next four years) to stay positive :)

I Voted Today!!

I want to let all of you know.......I VOTED TODAY!! Not only did I vote I voted for McCain! I am proud to be a female American who made it a point of my day to vote for the next President of the United States of America. I have discussed politics with a lot of people. One of the things that stuck out to me was a friend of my dad's said that she was alive when Hitler was alive. She heard him speak on the radio and she said that a lot of what she heard from him is being said by Barrack Obama. Obama doesn't salute the flag, say the pledge or even have a flag on any of his campaign items. I am proud to say that I salute the flag, say the pledge and put a flag wherever I can. I pray with my children and my husband everyday to a God who has called this a land of promise. I believe that this is a promised land and we should treat it with the respect it deserves. I feel all of the things that we do as Americans to show our fore fathers that we appreciate them and their sacrifices they made for this free land we live in were not in vain. This must be done by ALL who abide in this free land. It is NOT about religion it is about the freedom of this great country we live in. I especially believe that the leader of this proud country should be leading us in honoring our country by putting his hand to our heart as he pledges to our symbolic flag and says the pledge of allegiance. I also believe our leader of this beautiful promised land should want to display the American flag proudly where ever he travels. He will be responsible for traveling to other countries and lands to discuss very important matters on behalf of the American people. I AM AN AMERICAN, I want a president who values what I say and will never try to take my voice away from me. I want my children to be taught that it is okay to pray in school if they want, that they can stand proudly and say the pledge of allegiance to the most beautiful flag in the world. I am not ashamed of who I voted for today and I pray that you can say the same about your vote today. GOD BLESS AMERICA!!
