Adisynn: "Hey Mom, who do you like better? Jesus or Santa Claus?"

Me: "Oh, I LOVE Jesus!"

Adisynn: "Not me!! I like Santa Claus."

We are still singing Christmas songs and watching Christmas shows at our house. Lucky us huh??
Probably will be for the next couple of months. UGG!! I don't know how much more of "Frosty the Snowman"or "Oh You Better Watch Out." I can take.

Last Saturday my girlfriend's grand daughter was celebrating her first birthday at Chuck E Cheese! My friend Kelly doesn't look like she's going to be 50 years old in May. We've known each other for about 20 years, and she's been a very good friend. Berlynn decided she wanted to color her hair and make it darker. She didn't tell me about it and I was shocked! But I'm getting used to it. I'm just used to her always being blonde. Berlynn started work today. She is working at a Dr's office who happens to be a good friend of ours and in our ward. Adisynn loves going to Chuck E Cheese. She runs all over the place like the wild woman she is!! Hope everyone has a good evening!

This past weekend was our Stake Conference. President Hinckley's son Richard Hinckley was our speaker. They announced in the Saturday evening session that he would not be speaking because he was called to return home to Salt Lake that afternoon. The chapel was packed. More so than usual. You could hear everyones shocked reaction when the news was announced. Brother Hinckley arrived in Vegas Saturday morning. It kinda made us wonder if something was wrong with President Hinckley since he received the call home by President Boyd K. Packer and not a family member. So sad, but so wonderful how the heavens are rejoicing for the return home of our beloved Prophet.

Last Friday me and a couple of friends of mine went to "Dream Dinners". I am not a good cook and I cringe every time dinner comes around and everyone wants to know WHATS FOR DINNER???? If I had it my way we would eat out every stinkin night. But even then that gets pretty old. I'm sure this is old news to most of you ladies out there but it is so fabulous to have a freezer full of dinners already prepared. Just whip the suckers out of the freezer, heat them up and BAM!!!!! You got a meal. I'm thinking how great it will be when someone needs a meal brought in and I can have one ready for them BAM!!!! Just like that. :)

Berlynn packed her stuff and came home from school Wednesday. It's been a long 2 months of alot of praying. We asked Berlynn softball coach to resign from his position of Head Softball Coach. If he did not we told him we had no other alternative than to go to the school. Luckly he went to the Athletic Director and he was suspended for 2 weeks. After interviewing Berlynn and a few other girls he was fired by the end of the day. Berlynn wanted to leave school and she asked to be released from playing softball because of all the hard feelings the other teammates had for Berlynn. Which would make it difficult for her to further her softball career. We know that we did the right thing and so does the coach. It's too bad that you think you are sending your children off to college where it should be a safe environment and things like this have to happen. I was alittle apprehensive to posting this but I felt that this is life and it did happen and it needs to be addressed. There has been a few girls that have text Berlynn and said that she did the right thing and that she has their support. Which she greatly appreciates. It's been terribly hard on her and a 19 year old shouldn't have to go through something like this but things happen for a reason and she is and always will be a strong individual and we LOVE her.

I went back to the gym this week. For Christmas my husband purchased 6 session with a trainer. The first one was today and she kicked my butt!! First of all, I HATE working out. There is nothing fun or exciting about it. I was so tired and so hungry when I got home that I took an hour and a half nap and made a chocolate bundt cake and ate half the batter before I baked the darn thing. I do have to admit that I feel better and like the results of working out but getting started is the pitts!! I have never had to exercise my whole life and now that I am 45 years old things are just not the same as they use to be. My only motivation is in 2 years I don't want to look like my daughters grandmother taking her to kindergarten. I need to look like all those other young mommies in their twenties. Well, at least I can dream....
I was talking to Linda tonight and she said that we should take pictures of our Food Bellies like pregnant ladies do with their bulging bellies. I told her ok, and that we will take before and after pictures. She asked me, AFTER WHAT?????? I think she will chicken out. I got a camera for Christmas and it is still in the box and thats probably where it will stay for awhile until I figure out how to use it. So, guess I won't be taking any picture any time soon. Gotta love the holidays!!!

Berlynn left this afternoon to head back to school. She was not a happy camper and did not want to go back. As she gave me a kiss goodbye she said she hopes she gets into a car accident and dies!!! What the sam hell was that all about??? I guess that means she really doesn't want to go back. We have a wonderful mother- daughter relationship and are so close and I already miss her terribly!!!
Adisynn went into Sunbeams today. There are 21 new sunbeams that came in. I play the piano for primary and spent the whole time trying to play and keep her and the little girl next to her from misbehaving. They were taking their velcro shoes off and on, jumping up and down and dancing. Every time I would tell her to be quiet and give her that "look" she would just give me the same look back. Little stinker!! The last 5 minutes she was telling me to take her to the bathroom because she had to go pee pee. Hello!!! I was playing the piano and no one was coming to the rescue. So, I stopped playing the piano right in the middle of singing time to take her pee pee!!!! Came back and apologized and went back to playing. I think I might just have to ask to be released. HE HE!!

First time

This is my first post. After months and months of stalking other blogs and from my sister bugging the hell out of me, here I am.
I enjoy reading other peoples blogs and I am excited to get this blog going for family and friends. I am going to post often, but we will see if I have anything exciting to post. With a daughter at college and a 3 year old at home, I am sure there will be some good drama!
