Check out my Slide Show!

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Well, we had a great Christmas this year. It was fun because Tyler was able to actually get excited about Santa and everything. We had fun at Grandma Greats house on Christmas eve; although it was a nightmare on the freeway in the snow getting there. I think I white knuckled it the whole way there while randy laughed and tried to make it scarrier for me. On Christmas we opened presents, talked to Rick and Eileen, played for a bit and then went to my parents house for even more present opening and dinner (which was very yummy by the way). We got a huge surprise when my parents gave everyone a Mexican riviera cruise together from May 4-11! We are so excited! Rick and Eileen even said they would watch our kids for us! Double bonus!

Ty's favorite gift: Pirate ship

Jakes favorite gift: Anything Ty got that he shouldn't be playing with.

My favorite gift: (besides the cruise of course) My new kitchen knife set from Rick and Eileen!

Randy's favorite gift: (besides the cruise) The puzzle of Jake and Ty

Well, that sums up christmas! we had so much fun. Thank you to everyone for making it even more marrier!

Tyler says

Me: Ty, get your shoes and socks on so we can go!
Ty: where are we going mom?
Me: We need to take you and Jakey to the Doctor today
Ty: (totally frieking out) No Mom! I don't have poop in my eye! I don't need to go to the doctor! I don't have poop in my eye!

I feel sorry for the doctor who actually has a patient with poop in his eye.

Happy Birthday Tyler!

Well, yesterday was Tyler's 4th birthday. He was very specific about what he wanted this year. I asked him which friends he wanted to invite (I teach sunbeams, so I know a lot of four-year-olds) he told me he wanted to invite his cousins Savannah and Will. That was the end of his guest list and there was no convincing him otherwise (I tried for about 3 weeks). I asked him if he had any ideas of what he wanted to do. He suggested bowling. I don't really think he even knew what bowling was, but he was set on it, so that is what we did. I showed him pictures of bowling on the internet, so he knew what he was getting into.
So, we had a party at the bowling alley in Bountiful (because that is about the midpoint between Michelle's and my house). Since the party was in bountiful (where my mom lives) she wanted to come to the party. I kept on asking Ty if she could come, but he refused every day. Finally, Grandma convinced him to let her stop by and drop off his present. I also had to convince him to let Jake, Daddy, Michelle and Isaac come. We bowled one game, which Randy won and Tyler got second place at 79 points. I think that is the worst game I have ever played in my life with a score of 78. After that, we opened presents which consisted of TNMT on DVD, Shrek the 3rd on DVD, a writing your abc's Book, a lightsaber and a darth vader figurine. (pretty good for a 3 person party) then we played in the arcade and got tickets to buy overpriced junky toys that the kids of course loved! We then went to a gourmet dinner at... you guessed it McDonalds! The kids had fun playing there as well and eating their happy meals. Then we came home and opened some more presents; a lightsaber from Grandma and Grandpa Bremner that really lights up and makes noises and another one so daddy can play with him. He also got a baseball bat and Tee set that he loves!

so, that was his party! I just want to thank Michelle for letting Savannah and Will come to the party. Without them, it literally wouldn't have been much of a party. enjoy the pictures!

Tagged questions about my spouse and me

Tagged questions about my spouse and me!
(I don't know if anyone will have learned anything they didn't already know by reading this, but feel free if you have extra time.)

What is his name?

How long have you been together?
for almost six years

How long did you date?
we dated for 5 months before we were engaged, and then another 3 before we were married

How old is he?

Who eats more?
he eats more because when I eat the same as him, he gets upset (you know, the whole pizza rule)

Who said I love you first?
Randy did; there was a very long silence that followed.

Who is taller?
Randy, but only by an inch. so, if I wear shoes of any kind, I am usually taller.

Who sings better?

Maybe this should be my next pole question. I think that we both think we sing better than the other one.

Who is smarter?

Randy. well, at least he sounds like he knows what he is talking about most of the time; whether or not he actually knows the answers.

Who does the laundry?
I do.

Who does the dishes?
Randy does about 90% of the time. (yeah that's right girls!)

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed?
Randy does. on the very edge, because I tend to sleep in the middle.

Who pays the bills?
Mostly Randy, but I do it every once in a while. He does the budget too.

Who mows the lawn?
Randy mows the.....uh...dead looking stuff around our house. does that count?

Who cooks dinner?
I cook dinner most of the time. I love it most of the time too. If Randy is in charge of dinner, he just picks something up on his way home from work.

Who drives when you are together?
Always Randy! I hate driving.

Who is more stubborn?
I think I am more stubborn. Just try convincing me otherwise!

Who kissed who first?
Does it count as a kiss when Randy backs you into a corner so you have no place to go?

Who asked who out first?
I think the answers to all these questions are RANDY!

Who proposed?
Um... yeah, Randy

Who is more sensitive?
Randy probably wants me to say ME (especially when I am hormonally crazy which is most of the time.)

Who has more friends?
If niether of us have friends, who has more? maybe me by one or two.

Who has more siblings?
Randy beat me out by one sibling.

Who wears the pants in the family?

Randy again.

So to wrap up, Randy does everything and I just follow his lead. It is a good thing is a terrific spouse in the first place! Love you babe! (and I mean Randy, not you Rick!) :)

Randy's song

This is the video of Randy singing at the ward talent show. He is very talented at many things! Isn't he cute! Just thought you people might enjoy it as much as I do.

By the way, this song is written and performed by Randy!

The nursing strike is over!

Thank you everyone for your concern for us during the nursing strike. I appreciated all of the calls. Fortunately it didn't last more than those long 16 hours. I still don't know why it happened though. thanks again,

Tyler says

Hey everyone. Today has been a horrible day! Jacob is on a nursing strike and I can't figure out why. If you remember when Ty was about this age, he stopped nursing alltogether at 10 months. Just stopped cold turkey one day. so anyway, this is my conversation with Ty today.

Ty: "mom, why are you sad?"
Me: "because Jake won't nurse today and it makes me sad"
Ty: "well, if I had milk come out of my nipples, I could probabwy nurse him and use my super powers to make it better!"
Me: "well, that's nice of you. thanks Ty."

Tyler is so nice and so funny most of the time! what would I do without him?!

p.s. Randy reminded me that I used to call "letting down" "getting my super powers" because of the movie "my super ex-girlfriend". when they get their powers, their boobs get really big. I guess that is where the super power comment came from, although I didn't realize it at the time. :)

Tyler says

So, if you have been around me and Tyler for more than five minutes, you would know that Ty says. "I love you mom!.... Jake's cute." all of the time. And I mean all of the time. I didn't know that those two things went together, but to Tyler they do. So yesterday, after Ty said this for the umpteenth time for the day, he said "mom, you know why I say Jake's cute all da time?"
I said: "No, why?"
Ty: "because I need to remember what Jake is."
"in case i forget what he is, I have to tell you he is cute all the time."

I hope we all can learn from Tyler how to remember things. Just so none of you forget, feel free to tell me how cute Jake is all the time. I won't mind hearing it one bit. (I also hope that this doesn't mean tyler forgets he loves me and needs to tell me so he remembers!)

Jake walking (again)

Hey, just thought i would try to put a new video of Jacob walking so you could actually see it. I hope it works this time! He pretty much walks all the time now; except when he needs a quick gettaway from Tyler. That is when he gets down on his hands and knees and speeds out of the room. He is such a sweetheart. he is happy most of the time and just grins from ear to ear. He also loves to get into trouble and uses the grin against me. We are excited for his very first Christmas this year.

"Working hard or hardly workin eh mack?"

Randy has been working hard in the basement lately. He is doing a really good job and Tyler and I are very proud of him. Hopefully we will get a lot of it done during Randy's Christmas break. Who knew Randy was so talented at so many things! I think maybe he took on this job just so he could get new tools though. He has gotten a lot of new tools. Well, as long as he is happy, and my basement is making progress, it is totally worth it. Love you Randy!

Tyler Says

Tyler came up to me and said "mom! I love teet!"
Me: What?
Ty: I love teet! Do you love teet mom?
Me: I am confused, what do you think teet is?
Ty: I pour the teet and you drink it right? Do you like teets?
Me: (trying not to laugh too much) Ty, I think you mean TEA. Like a Tea Party!?
you should call it tea because teet is something different. And no, I don't like tea. we don't drink tea because it is bad for our bodies.
Ty: Well, I think it is teet, so I call it teet. (the conversation is finished and he promptly leaves)

I don't know why he askes me things. the answers don't matter to him. According to Tyler, whatever he thinks is right and there really is no point in debating; believe me, I have tried.
