How My Life is Like a DREAM VACATION.

So I thought about it and I really do live the life of a sex goddess who at any point in time can up and travel to see the wonders of the world, right from the comforts of my home. HOW? Just keep reading.

So you wish to see the Changing of the Guards in England? Who needs that when I have the changing of the sheets. Between the bed wetting and the throw up, heck this could be a daily occurrence. Feel free to stop by anytime for this magnificent encounter. Niagra Falls? See the waterfall every 30 minutes with Emma during her potty training time. Heck, it happens in the living room, the kitchen, the bathroom. And for a twist... you never know when or where it will happen.Imagine going to FAO in New York? OR you could come on down and see all the toys in our basement. Heck, we probably have a section for everything.Travel to see the Great Barrier Reef? or you can see the great barrier of jackets that lay in my entry way. Much cheaper. They might claim to have 10,000 different species, but…

So I Dropped Ben off at His Grandparents House and...

Should I be mad? I am not sure how I am feeling at this point, it has been a couple of days and the light sabers running down the side of his head and his name in BIG letters on the back of his head are starting to grow on me. So this leads up to the how it happened. I dropped Ben off to have a sleepover at my parents house and came to pick him up and his head was decorated by my 16 year old brother. Everyone was laughing , but me, because Matt had said he called and asked me. I wasn't sure if I was suppose to get upset or not... so I left and called my husband, who, of course, could care less. Then I called my sister Beth, who said she would have killed him and thought I should plot against this tragedy (which Matt if you are reading this, don't do this to Nate, cause I heard what she has to say and you would be hating life) I talked to a few friends who thought I should put Nair in his shampoo, and emailed his teacher who replied, "I"m sure it will be just fine for…

Christmas with the Cluffs

This year was the best Christmas EVER! Becuase we went down to San Diego and returne don the 24th, it was a bit smaller than in years past, but I think that is why it was so good! The kids wore their matching outfits that my mom made and the presents were perfect. Tyler and I slept most of the day becuase we had pulled an ALL NIGHTER from San Diego to Lehi (the last hour we had to pull over twice to let the cold air wake us up, but don't worry we had 4 Pepsi Maxs, 2 rocketstars and a shot of something, so it really was a VERY funny drive, like really funny. Like drunken fun). The kids all got the stuff that fit their needs (I do feel like the worst mom though becuase I am not a toy buyer and they got so excited to actually have toys in the house, oh well. What are aunties and grandparents for).

So instead of a Christmas Card or letter here is our family update:

This year has been great, we moved to Lehi in April and finally are in a place that we are both happy. What a blessing to h…

Audrey is a Cheerleader!!!

I think this has to be the proudest moment of my life as Audrey is a full fledged cheerleader. She had her first competition in December and then we drove down to San Deigo and she cheered in the Poinsetta Bowl. It was just adorable! She totally went out on the field in front of thousands of people and did her routine. We went to Lego Land and Seaworld.... which was a blast! We saw Auntie Katie and Uncle Noah there and went to the peir. The kids all hated the sand between their toes (I guess they haven't lived much). After we went down and played in the ocean we walked back to the sidewalk to get something to eat and all three kids freaked out and tried to get their feet clean. What a joke! Katie thought it was funny that they wanted to be so clean, but I think they just didn't like the feel of sand as they walked. Audrey saw her first Palm Tree and said, "I love those trees" Ben then added "Those are Palm Trees. I know that because I saw them in a book I have a…
