Time, who's got the time... **cute**

While, I'm sitting here after just rejoining the world of blogging (hopefully to stay) I was reminiscing over some of the different things I have been through this past year. I have a super cute story about my youngest niece that I still love to tell all of the time.

So one on of the many sleepovers my nieces had at my house every weekend for few months in the winter, it was a Saturday morning and I was trying to rush to get the kids fed, bathed, and ready to leave the house for the day so that our house could be viewed by Realtors, and buyers (our home is for sale).

So I am downstairs styling my middle niece Gracie's hair, and I hear a distant sound.... "I gotta feelin', that tonight's gonna be a good night, that tonight's gonna be a good, good niiiight.... " which was my phone ringer at the time. At this moment, my hands are tied between elastics, braids, a brush, and a spray bottle. So I look to the closest helper... (my youngest niece Kaylee 4 yrs old) and say, "Kaylee, babe... will you please run up and grab my phone from the bathroom counter in my bedroom? You can hear it ringing, please hurry..."

So she turns to me, with her PetShop pets in hand (bobbling their heads) and she said "Um..." (longer than needed pause) "I just don't have the time...".

For some reason, this REALLY got to me.... I seriously dropped Gracie's hair from my hands, and looked at Kaylee, with a shocked, surprised, impressed, upset, look on my face (however that looks, I don't know but that's how I felt LOL) and said.... "Excuse me Kaylee babe, what did you say?" She repeated, "I just DON'T have the time!" Very sternly.

So... I didn't really know what to do with this... and I went and got my phone, and of course ended up running way late because I had to restart Gracie's hair. I spent the whole day, thinking about this and laughing to myself silently... literally ALLL day.

The thing that shocks me the most, is how MUCH kids pick up, how FAST, and that they actually seem to know what it all means! I have laughed about this moment for months now... I just love those kids to death and am so blessed that they all have the most amazing personalities ever that keep us on our toes, so that we know how to change, adapt, and react to them. A 4 yr old telling me she doesn't have the time... LOL well at least she is beginning to understand the significance of TIME... :)

Well I just wanted to share that cute little story. :) I will laugh about this forever!!!!!! <3<3<3

a CRAZY long time...

Wellll..... it sure has been a long time since I've blogged last. I had the most precious, almost bitter sweet Christmas, started a new job that I love, and am just working on and striving to take care of my thriving family.... I will hopefully post pics from winter and new ones from springtime camping too! :)

Smith's Res!

This is Smith's Res. up Lake Fork Canyon in Spanish Fork. Such a beautiful place for a Sunday ride. Took us about an hour to get up there and when we did we just hung out! So pretty! No better way to ground yourself then to be with nature!

First Deer of the Season

So this isn't the deer Josh actually got, or wanted, however it's a pretty nice buck! This is the first deer out of our hunting group to be had this season so far. Scored 153.5 so it's pretty average size. He needs a nose job though, you can't see it in the picture but he has a schnoz like Gonzo!

So anyway, usually once the first buck has been caught, everyone elses come right after so this week we should be coming home with some food storage for our freezer for the next year! ;)

Ewww McDonalds

Josh and I had McDonalds chicken nuggets for dinner yesterday and had even given some to our dogs. We were all SOOO sick we thought we were dying. So just a warning... Don't eat McDonalds for a couple of days. I couldn't even work, I've never been so sick from food in my life!

Huntin' Season... The Love of the Outdoors!

So I have a broken Mom and a broken Husband plus I've had 2 funerals this week and sooo much more going on. It's insanity. It's definitely pouring in my life right now but we're finding ways to keep happy. We went for a ride to scout for deer together yesterday. Although I refuse to actually "hunt" the animals... I have a pretty good eye for my husband. Everyone at his Grandpa's funeral yesterday said that he would rather have us be hunting or riding than having to sit through a funeral so as soon as the luncheon was over, that's just what we did. It lifted our spirits that's for sure! :)

It's a blurry picture but when you're racing down the mountain trying to beat the storm... you get the point.

Poor Mommy...

So here is a picture of my mom's thumb. The one night that I don't go to our softball game, my mom decides to get all broken up! I guess she was trying to tag out a runner into her base and his game plan was to knock her over so that she couldn't reach him with the ball. Didn't work, she still tagged him out but he clean ripped her thumb off he tendons and possibly dislocated it! :( Pour lady. She will see the surgeon today to see what needs to be done!
