i wish...

oh i wish i had more time for my blog. i really do. i love writing on here and putting up pictures for my friends to see.

i wish i had more energy. i don't know what it is, but i am just beat day in and day out. we are having so much fun and keeping so ridiculously busy that i really can't keep up.

i wish kids weren't a constant MESS. i love to just be outside with the kiddies lately. but you bring them in for one meal, or even just one minute, and it's all over. my poor mom. this house has probably not been so messy in YEARS. it's on the verge of disaster at some point every day, sorry.

enough of the wishing.

i'm so happy that i have an amazing family. that i have parents who let me and derek and the kids come crawling back to bunk with them for a few months.

i'm so happy that we take possesion of our very first very own house on FRIDAY! isn't it about stinking time we lived in a house to call our own?!

i'm so happy that i have an amazing husband and that i can be a part of his family. the circumstances in the family are far from easy right now. but everybody is so strong through these trials and my faith is bursting.

i'm happy that i do have a slight burst of energy left so here are some pictures of the dance. we went to the little village of glenwood to a dance that derek's grandma's band was playing at. it was seriously so much fun. i have a ton more pictures and i love them all.

note that kid in the background doing the worm with is stomach.

phew, aren't you glad i got rid of that ugly foot picture being that first thing you see?!

for linda

I was informed today that it is time for a new post. And it's true, it is time. But, I'm sleepy, so this is all for now.

Derek sprained his ankle at the end of June and i forgot to put these up. Gross. He has gross feet and even grosser sprained. He tied his shoe up really tight after to stop the swelling, so i don't really have to point out where all the swelling went.

We were bored so we threw some bread out to see if any birds would come. This is about a quarter of what showed up. And James was pretty sure he could catch them. And the nakedness? That's the way we roll around here.

Here's a random July 1st picture of my friends!

I think I'll find the time to post again soon. I think. I kinda still want to post some pictures from weeks ago, and I just might do it even it's old lame-o news.

We're off to the zoo tomorrow!

the computer likes me!

Well, at least my dad's computer likes me. So all these pictures are form my dad's camera. My pictures are on my computer and it's still being mean.

Here's what I want to know. All you people that make you make them in photoshop and then put them on here or what? I want to learn how to do them, but am rather dumb when it comes to those kind of things in photoshop.

Here's a little bit of what we've been up to.

We had a little photo session on Sunday afternoon. Alli wasn't into it until my dad pulled out the prop.

Before the prop.

Alright, enough of those.

Ahhh, the newlyweds. They were glowing all day. I sure can't wait until these 2 have some kids of their own for me to torture. I have some serious payback to get Peter for.

The little Waterton "hike"

James having a good time in Waterton Lake

James taking a dive into Waterton Lake, oops.

Let me expand on this story. James had a near drowning and I saved him, what's new. The part that got me, is that he hardly let out a whimper when I rescued him. And then, as I was frantically ripping his freezing drenched clothes off, he gets all mad at me and is fighting to get out of my grasp. After he is stripped to his diaper and breaks loose, what does he do? He trudges right back out into the icy waters. He must have lost a wackload of brain cells in the freezing water to be that stupid.

AND, Happy Birthday Grandma!

A few other happenings that have no pics.

-I got the sweetest most perfect new nephew at the end of June seen here. Rhonda you are such a trooper.
-I ran the 10km road race and have since abandoned all training for my triathlon, oh dear I'm in trouble there.
-had an overnight trip to Waterton with the Baldry cousins, CRAZY fun.
-6 year anniversary, awwwwww. have yet to celebrate.
-swimming, swimming swimming
-quick trip to the lake waterskiing. yeah, I still got it.
-i worked a couple shifts at the raymond hospital with more booked. (bleh, old people)
-bought a house in Cardston! YIKES!!!

Derek's sister is still here from Califonia so we are making the most of her time here. All cousins are sleep deprived and out of control and we loving every minute of it. I haven't taken a single picture in over a week so I better get on it. But don't worry as soon as I get my computer working I'll have more! Summer is slipping away much too fast!
