So, after the move we had some problems getting it up and running... if ya know what I mean! Just kidding... I'm still talking about the Internet! Man people!
And I wanted to show you some pictures of the kids loving the new house, but without the Internet.... I was almost about to pull my hair out!
I'm happy to report that I still have all my hair and the Internet is up and running just fine!
I'll put some pictures of the house up a little later, but I was too excited to let you all know that we're still alive and kicking round' here!
Christmas was AWESOME! Todd and I did a little too much for them as usual! We always have a blast doing the last minute stuff though. He's so much fun at Christmas time! Especially when we start wrapping presents. Every year he transforms into "Tape Man"! A role that he takes to the extreme! When I look at all those presents that have to be wrapped, he makes me smile!
I'm so thankful to live here where we have such good friends and family! I hope you all had the best Christmas ever!

Peanut Butter Squares
2 Cups powdered sugar
1 Cup butter, softened
1 Cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 3/4 Cups graham cracker crumbs
1 Cup chopped peanuts (I used a mix of nuts...especially almonds!)
1 package (12 oz) semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 Cup peanut butter
Line square pan, 9x9x2 inches, with aluminum foil. Mix powdered sugar, butter, 1 Cup peanut butter and vanilla in large bowl. Stir in graham cracker crumbs and peanuts. (Mixture will be stiff) Press in pan.
Heat Chocolate chips and 1/4 Cup peanut butter over low heat, stirring frequently, until smooth. Spread over bars. Refrigerate 1 hour or until chocolate is set. Remove squares, along with foil, from pan. Fold foil back to cut squares. Refrigerate any remaining squares.
And then I got a whole other pan dirty and melted some white chocolate with a little more peanut butter to drizzle on the top! And now this recipe is mine and not Betty Crock-who's?
And I wanted to quick and tell you guys to take a peek at my friends new blog. It's in my fun sites section below.

(I don't know what's up with this post, but it decided to cram all my pictures and words all together.....sorry.)

Ooooooo, this book is good!
Ok!.... It's really good! What a cutie that Edward is!!!
Oh their getting married! How exciting....if she wasn't such a moron about it anyway!

1. I miss having kitchen counters. We have none, in fact there is no where to even put a dirty dish, it has to be put in the dishwasher right away.
2. I miss letting my kids take turns dancing right before prayers at night. There is absolutely not room once we've all gathered in a circle on the floor. And sometimes Haley tries to do her usually dance and it makes me sad to stop her because we don't have any room.
3. Brace yourself..... Grocery shopping is a HUGE pain! We park in the parking lot, grab as many bags as we can, walk down the sidewalk, turn... go down more sidewalk, set the bags down while I open the gate....I kick the gate open, set the bags down again, I unlock the door, pick up my bags kick open the door and then......lucky me..... I get to do it all over again till' all the groceries are brought in! Fun huh?!
4. We have to walk or drive all our garbage bags to the big dumpster. Do you have any idea how much garbage a family of 6 can produce just in one day?! So the next time you complain about having to take it out to the GARAGE!!!!...... think of me!!!!
5. Here's the best one..... The absolute weirdest odor is coming from somewhere in our Master Bathroom! We have scoured and scrubbed, bleached and sprayed! But, to our ever lovin' dismay..... we cannot get rid of it! How disgusting is that?! I know!!!! I read a story about an ex-wife that hid meat in her house before she gave it over to her husband.... I'm seriously thinking this is the work of a disgruntled former renter!!!!! And that really happened to my sister in law Robyn! Tell em' Rob.
Pray for me! I might not make it to December!

I know, he doesn't look that old huh?!
Some fun stuff about our Uncle Juan or Uncawun as my girls say, is that he is from Puerto Rico! Thus, far more exotic than the rest of us! He use to be an awesome dancer in his youth! And you'd never recognize him in his photos. He was a skinny little thing!!! No..... I mean bean pole! I wonder if he maybe twirled so hard that he start do lift off the ground like a helicopter?! "Keep your arms down, Juan!..... Come back Juan, come back!" I'm sure it went a little something like that!
He served a mission in ID! Well, its more or less a huge disappointment if someone from UT gets that call, but to a skinny little dancer from Puerto Rico..... "ALLELUIA!...... Yes!.... Idaho!" He had to leave his heathen rice days behind him and start eating potato's! mmmmmm.
At the birthday dinner Grandpa and Dad made pretend birthday candels for Sophie to blow down! She sure was a sick little thing, but this made her cheer up immediately! Grandpa's so smart.
He loves the scouting program and is an expert for Hayden to go to when he has questions. I'm sure Jarod will know just who to ask when he's in scouts.

It wasn't like any Botanical Garden I've been to, but the people there assured me that the one in Denver is more traditional. This one is like a long walk on a country road. Which was great for me because it reminded me of home. The kids liked it too. I just wish there were more flowers.

Here's the drill (This one's kind of interesting...)
1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses.
If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments.
