Do you know the downward dog?

Here's my YOGA teacher saying "you cant do this, oh come on give it a try?"

Here's me being squashed by my crazy yoga teacher

Here's me after class flexible as can be!! I am a PRO what can i say??

Just kidding..My friends and I have decided to be really ambitious and go to yoga every Tuesday and Thursday night. Tuesday was the first day of class and can I just tell you it was killer!! I haven't been in a long time and forgot how doing all of these crazy poses and holding them for like five minutes each, can make your muscles shake like they are trying to pop out of your arms, legs and pretty much everywhere else.. My instructor was INSANE she did a pose that made her look like she was floating!! Picture a girl instead of a guy standing on us trying to make us more flexible and that's pretty much what it was like.. So tonight i get to do it all over again!! Despite all of the sore muscles and crazy instructors I am actually looking forward to it!

Lucky!!






I am so LUCKY....
I heard this new song on the radio yesterday and it made me really think about how lucky I am..
I am so LUCKY I have an amazing husband, who works so hard and tries his hardest to support our family..
I am so LUCKY I have a supportive family who is there for me whenever I need anything at all...
I am so LUCKY for friends who make us laugh, give us support and make our lives better because they are around us...
and last but definitely not least..
I am so LUCKY to have a healthy boy, who makes each day an adventure and reminds me every day what a piece of heaven really feels like..
Please take a second to remember how LUCKY we all are to have each other, to be healthy and to be loved!!

THIS ONES FOR MY CANADIAN BROTHER IN LAW!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRIAN!


BRIAN:I know you probably wont be able to read this while you are at work, so make sure to read it when you get home! I thought that you'd find this rather amusing!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRIAN!! I cant wait to see you guys in a few weeks!!( pay attention to what countries the questions are coming from!!)

Now that Vancouver has won the chance to host the 2010 Winter Olympics, these are some questions people from all over the world are asking. Believe it or not these questions about Canada were posted on an International Tourism Website. The answers are a joke; but the questions were really asked!

Q:I have never seen it warm on Canadian TV, so how do the plants grow? ( England )A. We import all plants fully grown and then just sit around and watch them die.

Q:Will I be able to see Polar Bears in the street? ( USA )A: Depends on how much you've been drinking.

Q:I want to walk from Vancouver to Toronto -can I follow the Railroad tracks? ( Sweden )A: Sure, it's only Four thousand miles, take lots of water.

Q: Is it safe to run around in the bushes in Canada ? ( Sweden )A: So it's true what they say about Swedes.

Q: It is imperative that I find the names and addresses of places to contact for a stuffed Beaver. ( Italy )A: Let's not touch this one.

Q: Are there any ATM's (cash machines) in Canada ? Can you send me a list of them in Toronto , Vancouver , Edmonton and Halifax ? ( England )A: What, did your last slave die from?

Q: Can you give me some information about hippo racing in Canada ? ( USA )A: A-Fri-ca is the big triangle shaped continent south of Europe. Ca-na-DA is that big country to your North...oh forget it. Sure, the hippo racing is after every Flames game in Calgary . Come naked.

Q: Which direction is North in Canada ? ( USA )A: Face south and then turn 180 degrees Contact us when you get here and we'll send the rest of the directions.

Q: Can I bring cutlery into Canada ?( England )A: Why? Just use your fingers like we do.

Q: Can you send me the Vienna Boys' Choir schedule? ( USA )A: Aus-tri-a is that quaint little country bordering Ger-man-y, which is...oh forget it. Sure, the Vienna Boys Choir plays after every hockey game in Vancouver and in Calgary , straight after the hippo races. Come naked.

Q: Do you have perfume in Canada ? ( Germany )A: No, WE don't stink.

Q: I have developed a new product that is the fountain of youth. Can you sell it in Canada ? ( USA )A: Anywhere significant numbers of Americans gather.

Q: Can you tell me the regions in British Columbia where the female population is smaller than the male population? ( Italy )A: Yes, gay nightclubs.

Q: Do you celebrate Thanksgiving in Canada ? ( USA )A: Only at Thanksgiving.

Q: Are there supermarkets in Toronto and is milk available all year round? ( Germany )A: No, we are a peaceful civilization of Vegan hunter/gathers. Milk is illegal.

Q: I have a question about a famous animal in Canada , but I forget its name. It's a kind of big horse with horns. ( USA )A: It's called a Moose. They are tall and very violent, eating the brains of anyone walking close to them. You can scare them off by spraying yourself with human urine before you go out walking.

Q: Will I be able to speak English most places I go? ( USA )A: Yes, but you will have to learn it first.

LOVE YA BRIAN HAVE A GREAT BIRTHDAY!!!

The other day I was downstairs doing laundry, and I noticed that Jax was being REALLY quiet. For those of you who know him, that is not like him at all!! I ran upstairs to make sure he was okay and this is what I found....He was sitting in the bathroom on the floor reading through Matt's jeeping magazines. He would look at one picture and say, "WOW, JEEP!" and then move onto the next page. He kept himself entertained for almost an hour just looking at the magazines! He's just like his Dad!!

UPDATE!!! Heres the pics of my little pox man!!




Here's the pictures of Jax with a few chicken pox!! We are still house bound, but he is doing really well and it looks like he is recovering quickly! Only a few more days and I can go out again! YIPEEEE!!

Saturday, September 6, 2008

YIIIIIKKKKKEEEESSSS... what are those spots????


THEY ARE CHICKEN POX!!!! NOOOOOO!!!

this isnt a picture of him with the pox, but his beautiful little face is now covered with little red bumps!!

Jax woke up on Thursday morning and it looked like he had been attacked by a killer swarm of mosquitos!! It didnt even cross my mind that they might be chicken pox, because we are known to have killer mosquitos on this side of Lehi! On Friday morning we were getting ready and I noticed 5 more bites on his arms and 3 around his waist. Thats when it HIT me!! Chicken pox!! I called the nurse and she said the bites will evolve from mosquito bites into little puss pockets. They didnt look like they were evolving until around 3pm yesterday and we decided he's GOT them for sure! SO i am house bound for a week with him YIPPEE!! Please write me, I am bound to go INSANE!! I will post pictures soon!!

This is for EMI and BLAKE!! WE ARE SO HAPPY YOU ARE OK!!

EVERY DAY WE HAVE IS A BLESSING...BLAKE AND EMI ARE PROOF!! Last night I was texting Emi around nine thirty to see how her day went with Blake's family in Midway. His brother left today to go on a mission to South Africa and I knew it would be a really hard day on both of them, so I wanted to check in to see how they were doing. She texted me back to say they were doing ok, and thats all I heard from her. Next thing I know my Mom and Dad rush downstairs saying they have to leave because Blake and Em have been in a car accident. I was so worried. I had no idea how serious it was, but I knew that if my parents were rushing to their side, it was pretty serious. My Mom called and said that they were going through a yellow light when a car pulled out in front of them. Blake and Em had no time to stop and hit them going about 45 mph. It totalled Em's car. Its truly a miracle, because both parties involved, Blake and Em and the other couple, walked away from the accident. We decided to take both of them to the Hospital to have them checked but both came away a little bruised and battered, but NO serious injury. I went with Emi this morning to look at her car and it is truly a MIRACLE that no one was killed. Her car did an amazing job at keeping her and Blake safe, but if you ask me they were not alone last night, it was obvious that they were being watched over! Its been an eye opener for all of us and has made us realize that if we are living the way we are supposed to we WILL be protected. There was a miracle that took place last night and I am so thankful that everything turned out the way it did. BLAKE and EMI, I love you guys and am SOOO thankful that you are OK!!
