been missing

SO I know I have been missing from the blogging world. I will be definitely getting more pictures up soon. I have been doing the HCG diet over the last couple of weeks which is taking more time cause I am actually cooking. And I am just way busy as of late. I only got to see Kevin and Danniqa for a whole half hour on my birthday because work was sooooooo crazy. So I am also having a hard time balancing everything and figuring how to do it all. But today was fun.... here is a run down of what we did.

Wake up 8 am.
Read for a while, clean house.
9:30am Kevin came over.
9:45 go pick up Danniqa from her grandmas
Go to Target and Walmart in order to find stuff for Christmas
Go thru the drive thru at McDonald's for lunch for Kev and Danni.... I ate something different
Come home drop the Christmas tree off and get it in the stand.
Go to Kevin's parents house and get some Christmas decorations
Come home and put lights on teh tree, realize we don't have enough and send Kev back to the store.
Danniqa and I then make paper plate angels, paper plate snowman, a cone santa claus while waiting for Kevin.
Then finish putting the lights on.
Danniqa then put the ornaments on the tree they are in a small square space on the lower part of the tree.
Make popcorn garland - Danni didn't want to so she went downstairs to play.
Danni came up and told me she wants to watch a movie with me.... She wants me to lay down on the couch and she snuggles up with me and "watches" a movie.... she was asleep before the previews were over.
Make dinner
Finish the garland
Feed everyone
Do dishes
Have Danni change into Pj.
Send Kevin back to the store for something else I forgot
Read a book, an article from the friend and a chapter from scriptures with Danni. (She is getting so good and is reading more and more words on her own!)
Tuck Danni in bed.
Sit down on the couch at 7:45pm and wonder were the day has gone and realized I got NO work done today.... oopps.

How do mom's do it!!!!
It has been a very fun day. Christmas is up and I am excited about it.

Just a day

By the end of Wednesday's I am ususally really tired. I watch my friends little 7 month old Bryton, My 2 year old nephew Royal and then I get to have Danniqa with me which is fun. I am always amazed between, feeding, naps, gymnastics, entertaining and etc how tired I am at the end of the day. Mom's I think you are great! So here was a little fun we had yesterday. We went to the park and found some great piles of leaves on the way.

Canada in November

We decided to go to Canada for a few days before Christmas to see Kevin's mom and his sister Becky and her family. We were only there for a couple fo days but we did go to Banff which is a resort town now far from were Becky lives. So we were in Calagary most of the time were Becky lives but here are some great pictures of Banff.

Bow falls in Banff

The man made lake and park by Becky's house. It was a beautiful day and we went for a walk.

Kevin's birthday

Kevin turned 35 yrs old on Oct 23rd.
Danniqa and I woke up and called Kevin. We told him not to come over until we called him. Then we decorated teh house, made him a cake and a card. Then he came over for some fun :)

I surprised Kevin with tickets to the BYU vs UofU game. He was pretty excited.

We went to breakfast at IHOP

We went to Cornbell's down at Thanksgiving point for the day. Danni was so excited about the Cinderally pumpkin. She ended up getting a little sick and we had to come home. But we had fun while we were there.

The cake Danniqa and I made for Kevin. He loves Spiderman
