El Spurs

Yes... we went to a Spurs game last night. I still absolutely HATE them and can't stand the way they like to accidentally trip over their own shoes and get fouls called on the opposing team. That or when they like to hit themselves in the face and also blame it on the opposing team by their most surprised look put on their faces like they can't believe someone didn't see them hit themselves in the face. Either way... I think they play like sissies. But Casey's former basketball teammate now plays for the Milwaukee Bucks and was in town last night, and figuring our love for basketball and the fact that we now live in San Antonio... we'd (or I) would have to get used to the fact that this would be the first of many games we would be going to. Not to mention we haven't seen bogut in about 2 and a half years and Casey was really excited to see his old friend. No... it's not the suns nor will the EVER be.. but the game was still fun, can you say pizza, nachos, screaming and bright lights?! yay.

No worries tho the suns are coming on Monday night and I will be wearing my suns jersey... my hair and back may get to know certain beverages and/or food items on a more intimate level, but that's fine.

This was also Noah's first basketball game. I don't think i've ever seen him more excited. Every time a song would play he would start dancing. And he would scream when the crowd would scream and was laughing and just dancing the whole game. I give the kid props... I wish I could dance the whole game.

On the way!! Where's the driver??

One of Noah's least happiest expressions of the night

What a lucky girl am I?

Us and Bogut after the game. Let me just remind you how tall he is.... He is on a step BELOW us and still hovers... 

Also as seen in this picture taken 2 and a half years ago.... TALL.


Can you guess??

Can you guess who is who??

 Pair #1







R.I.P. Grandma Iverson and Grandma Maggie

My Great Grandma passed away a few months ago. Casey's grandma also passed away more recently. I never had the chance to meet her but from what I hear she was an amazing woman. We were able to attend both funerals.  My grandmothers was held in Mesa AZ and his in Logan UT. I never had the chance of meeting his grandma but hear she was a great woman. Attending these two funerals makes me so grateful for my knowledge in the church and knowing that we have the plan of salvation and that I will get to see my grandma again as well as meet Caseys. It is a great feeling knowing that after we pass on from this life we move on and don't just die. It also reminds me of why I am here.  After talking to his sister about plans of how to conduct the funeral he talked to me about how a funeral should not be mourned but should be a celebration. He thought we should get balloons and cake lol. He said, yes, they are not here with us on this earth but think about what a great place they are in now? We should be nothing but happy for them. I am glad that so far I have accomplished being sealed to an eternal family and having given two great little spirits a body. There is so much more I want to accomplish while I am here.

Here are a few pictures of Casey's grandma's funeral. (we didn't get any at my grandmas)

My Benjamin Button

I was looking through our pictures last night and found a few of Kai that I couldn't be more proud of. He has to be one of the oddest looking babies I have ever come across. To me... he looks like an old man baby. I couldn't stop laughing and thought I would share. Enjoy!

(my favorite was his hair... or lack of)

I am glad that he has grown out of his old man stage and now looks like this.


That's right... Ninja

Two nights ago....

"Casey... could you please move your head down... it's going into my chin and throat" (He was laying on my chest falling asleep)

"I'll just shrink my head in...... like a turtle!!!!"

*followed by Casey doing a 'attempt to suck his head into his body' turtle reaction*

"That didn't work so well... I'm not a turtle. I'm more like a ninja turtle if anything....*pause*.... Yes... I'm a ninja."

I'm glad my husband can take on so many roles.



Rain Rain Go Away

Back (by back I mean around 3-4 months ago) when we were staying in Farmington, NM we had a lot of rainy days. We were only there for a few days and there really wasn't ANYTHING to do there except go to walmart so being cooped up in the hotel didn't really bother me all that much. Especially with these two cuties. These pics were so cute I had to share. We were on the second story and they were both talking to each other and pointing out the window. I really wish I could speak blah blah so I could understand what they were saying. I'm still working on normal talk with the two.



Since I recently found out what a "tag" was I was tagged in this post :) Thank you to my very very good friend Shalyn!! Let me just tell you a little about her because I want her to know that I LOVE her! We used to be roommates in College and We met through a mutual friend. Shay has been the most bubbly, caring, heart felt person I have ever known... and I sincerely mean that. I love her personality and could be locked in a room with this girl for 5 years and I would love every second. Even since we have lived apart she is one of the few people I keep in contact with. Yes Shay I love you.

Now onto the TAG.

FOUR shows I watch:

1. PRISON BREAK- Yes... Casey and I were introduced to netflix about 3 months ago and watched every episode form front to end in about a week. We watched over 81 hours of this. It's addicting. Casey would be up until 5 in the morning watching and I would catch up while he was at work and when he got home we would watch it until I fell asleep... thats all we did for a week straight. We lived, ate and breathed (I don't know if that is a word) prison break. 
2. THE OFFICE- ALSO have watched every episode front to back and just finished a couple days ago. Need I say more? Battlestar Galactica.
3. THE BACHELOR/ BACHELORETTE- I know I know... I get made fun of this on a daily basis. Even though I know that it is scripted and the most complete waist of human spare time... I enjoy it. Maybe it's my feminine romanticism side coming out of me. 
4. WHEEL OF FORTUNE- (and family feud, don't forget the lyrics, price is right, deal or no deal) What can I say... I LOVE game shows more than anything else. Now if only I knew how to get on one... Oh and gotta love Judge Judy.... although I only watch her when the kids are taking late naps :)

FOUR things I am passionate about

1. MY HEAVENLY FATHER- Let me just say that he is the reason I am here. He is the reason I have this body to do something great with. He is the reason for my reason. He is what gets me through the hard times and is what gives me the best times. He is the reason for my husband and for my two miracles. He is the light of my life. I could go on and on.
2. MY FAMILY- Nothing on this earth means more to me than my husband and two children. They are there for me, tell me they love me everyday, give me kisses. I don't think I could live a day without them. I would do ANYTHING for them... ANYTHING.
3. TACO BELL- Or can we say MEXICAN FOOD? In general... frick-en-yum. Delicious beans... melted cheese, guac., Carnitas, onion, all wrapped in a warm, homemade tortilla. Yes, my mouth is watering. Everytime Casey and I go to Arizona or Utah the first place he knows to take me is to a mexican restaurant or drive thru. Fili B's run anyone??
4. EXERCISE- Yep... When I get into it I can't stop. I love it, love breathing hard, love feeling my muscles ripping off my bones.... love it. Now only if I could eat healthier I might see some improvements?? No... we will save that for another day.

FOUR phrases I say a lot:

1. I just wanna eat something.
2. Soda sounds good.
3. I really wish we had a Filibertos here.
4. "I'm peanut butter and you are Jelly and we're so happy on our little piece of bread, dun dun dun, I remember the first time that I saw you, sittin cross the cupboard with your other Jelly friends. And your so sweet and, I am crunchy, and your low-fat, well I'm working on that. Cause' I'm peanut butter and you are jelly and we're so happy on our little piece of bread" (It's a song I sing at least once every other day while making pb and j for Kai.)

FOUR things I have learned from the past:

1. Nothing in this world matters more than your happiness. If your not happy, others around you will not be happy either.
2. No one can make me feel a certain way. Only I can change my mood.
3. Always forgive. I was not put on this earth to judge anyone. Just live the best I can and don't judge others for mistakes they have made. 
4. People can change.

FOUR things I did yesterday

1. Went to church.
2. Made homemade breadsticks... and they were DE-LICIOUS. D... to the E... to the L I C I O U S. Even better once dipped in alfredo sauce. 
3. Watched Eclipse with Casey... He loves it... Don't deny your love for Edward, Casey... Don't deny it.
4. Took a nap

FOUR places I would love to visit:

1. Egypt
2. Germany
3. Italy
4. Grand Canyon

FOUR things I am looking forward to:

1. Next summer!! Woo Hoo
2. Christmas
3. The week where both of my kids will be 1... Feb. 5th through the 12th. Mark your calendars!!!
4. Seeing family again!! Utah here we come!

 FOUR things I love about winter:

2. The snow! Makes you feel like it's winter.... (wonder why??)
3. Christmas lights!! Anywhere, anytime.
4. Food food and more food. Comfort food just doesn't taste the same in the summer time.

FOUR people I tag:
