Off to the beach!!

So at 4am this Sunday morning we are heading off to San Diego!! I can't even begin to tell you how EXCITED I am. My brain can't even comprehend the fact that I don't have to go to work for 1 1/2 weeks! My body and mind are VERY ready for a little R&R. I don't really know how much resting I will get because let's face it Kylee is still my daughter and she is going with me along with my other daughter of course Mattison. I'm bummed though because Billy has to come back AZ to go to work for 4 days then he gets to come back to CA. I'll miss him so much!!! I am way excited to see my best friend my mom and my sister Tara and brother-in-law Aaron and their 4 adorable kids!! Also for anyone interested we have decided to name our baby boy Brayden Neuel instead of Jarren. :) So I will miss you all but I am looking forward to going to cooler weather!!!!! Love you all!

So on Monday Kylee woke up WAY too early.......5:45am! Yes you read the time right. So I had to be to work that day by 7 and Billy was playing basketball already at the church so I got up with her. I had to get ready with her "help" which is always interesting. At about 9:15am Billy called me at work and asked if I could talk for a second. Luckily I had about 60 seconds so Billy precedes to tell me about what was going on at home while I am at work. Billy said he was in our bedroom picking up some stuff and Kylee comes in the room ever couple minutes just to make sure Daddy is still in there. This is very common for Kylee. Then he said the last time he saw her check on him she did the "I love you" sign in sign language and closed our bedroom door behind her. He didn't think much of it. Then about 3 to 5 minutes later the home phone rang so he opened up our bedroom door to go down the tiled hallway to answer the phone. The only thing is that when he went to step out of our bedroom this is what he found.......

That is right, Kylee is passed out asleep on the tile floor. Kylee honey this is why we don't need to wake up at 5:45 am!!! Billy said she was snoring too! When he went to pick her up and put her in her crib she didn't even budge. Needless to say Mommy was very jealous she got a nap! :)

Then that night we were doing our evening ritual of helping the girls pick up their toys before bed. This is Kylee's way of contributing to the process. Sit in the box where all the toys are suppose to go then you just can't put the toys away! Problem solved in the mind of a 19 month old (or so she thought). Good thing she is cute because she is very mischievous also!

Also I wanted to congratulate Mattison me little miss smart girl!!! She has a November birthday so she is suppose to wait a whole another year before she started kindergarten but Billy and I prayed about it and felt we needed to have her tested early. Luckily we found a new charter school testing early kindergarten children. She went and did her screening and the advisor said she is VERY ready for school and that she would put her on the enrollment lists that day!! She was VERY excited to hear that (to say the least). She said do I get to go to class now? The advisor and I both laughed at her enthusiasm and explained that school didn't start until August 10th. Almost everyday since the test she has asked if it is time to start school. Billy and I are very proud of her and her excitement for learning. Good job baby girl!!! Then the advisor talked to me a few days later and asked me if I would be willing to help them interview for the 3rd kindergarten teacher they were looking to hire. I said yes and was very excited when they asked for my help on input in selecting a teacher. Should be an adventure! :)

Happy Father's Day!!!

These shoes are too big on me, as you can plainly see.
Even when I am grown though, they'll still be big on me.
The reason is quite simple; I'm sure you will agree.
No one can fill these shoes quite like my daddy.

Happy Father's Day!
We love you!!

House Guest

So as of yesterday we have a new house guest that my girls are so excited about having here. He is a little more hair than most our house guests and he goes to the bathroom outside (old fashioned like :) ). Welcome to our house Buddy! I know Mattison and Kylee are hoping this is a permanent situation but I know you are hoping the opposite. Buddy has only been here since yesterday evening and he is already exhausted.
Wait!!! You are NOT Buddy!!!

Here is our real house guest! :)

More than 1 reason for a closet!!!

So the other day Billy and I were trying to get some stuff put away and so Mattie and Kylee went into Kylee's room to play. I thought how nice it is that the girls are playing so good together in the other room so Billy and I can get our project done faster. Then it got a little to quiet for my taste. I have learned to much silence when kids are playing equals TROUBLE! So I go into Kylee's room to find this...... So here is a great video of Mattie doing the robot. It is so cute to watch!

I hate listening to me talking but the video is cute. :)

This is Kylee's new love....sunglasses!! She'll be already for the beach. hee, hee

Missing my mom!!

So my mom and dad left to go to San Diego with my older sister Tara and her husband Aaron and their 4 adorable kids. My dad is staying for a week and my mom and Tara's family are staying for 1 MONTH!!! That is right i said 1 MONTH! I am a really close to my mom so to have her gone that long is not a fun idea. So far they have only been gone 2 days and I am already missing my family terribly. I do have to say though I actually haven't seen any of my family since last Wednesday because I was so sick and I didn't want to get any of them sick especially before going on vacation. So I am looking forward to staying in touch with my mom and my sister through blogging and phone calls! Thank you technology!!! :) I am looking forward to meeting up with them in 2 weeks. My girls keep asking to go to Nana's house and I tell them she is not home and they look confused like "What she always needs to be there?". So Kylee finally decided she would call her Nana so she brought me the home phone and said "Nana". So I called Nana so she could talk to her mini me (aka Kylee). For anyone who does not know, Kylee is my mom's sidekick. She will go anywhere Nana is. So I think Kylee and I will have the hardest time having my mom gone! So here are some pictures of the girls to keep you happy for a couple days mom. P.S. Yes the bath water is suppose to be pink it was dissolve ball my dad gave the girls as a gift. Needless to say they LOVED the pink water with little floating hearts in it! :)

Happy Birthday Baby sister!!

I just wanted to wish my baby sister Erin a VERY happy birthday!! She is such an amazing women and I am so blessed to call her my sister. She is a great example and strength to me. She is there when I have needed to talk and when I want a good laugh I know right where to go. I love how much her and her husband enjoy life together. Erin is SO talented!! She is gifted at her job as a hairdresser. She can take a mop of hair like mine look like a masterpiece! Thanks Erin for being your best self and for always being true to who you are. You are a wonderful blessing to me and our family. I can't wait to see you with your son Parker. I know you will be an amazing mother!! I love you little sis!!
I had to put this picture in of Erin at the pool because I just think she is the cutest pregnant mommy in a swimsuit I have ever seen!! Love you!!

New "adventures"!

Mattie last week went with my parents for 4 days up north to Mormon Lake. They had a family ride with the Mounted Sheriff's Posse that my dad and brother-in-law belong to. Mattie and all of Tara's kids competed in different events. This was Mattie's first year of competing and she did great. She got 4th place, 5th place and 4 of the purple participation ribbons (a.k.a. special ribbons). Nana and Papa said Mattie did not stop the whole time they were there. Thanks again for taking her with you for such a fun trip. Mommy missed you soooooooooo much Mattison!! Also Kylee our 18month old is as my dad would say "a kick in the pants". She is very entertaining and exhausting. She learned how to get herself out of her crib and she is way proud of herself for it! The first night she discovered she could do it it took us about 45 minutes to get her to bed because we had to keep putting her back in her crib. The girl never stops!! Good thing she is adorable and I love her to pieces! The above picture shows you what a monkey both my girls are....this is what Billy came out to the other day after he took a shower both the girls just sitting on the table hanging out! MONKEYS!!
