I love toilets

So it's our last day of packing and I wake up eager to get the day started and before I get into it let me tell you our toilet is broken and has been for awhile. Every time you flush if you don't pull the handle up as high as it goes it keeps running. So, I go to the bathroom and it decides to clog. And since it clogs and it keeps running... yes..... it overflowed. And not only did it overflow... it overflowed about a half inch deep worth of water. And of course we are moving so all of our towels are packed. Well... you get the picture. It wasn't a fun morning.


Delicious Meatloaf

One of our friends had us over for dinner and made the BEST meatloaf I have ever had. She cooks for the homeless and told me that this was one of their favorite meals. I had to post the recipe on here for any of you who want a delicious and easy recipe.

2lb. Ground Beef
1 Pkg Meatloaf Mix Seasoning
2 eggs
1/2 cup 2% Milk
1 small onion
3 Cloves of Garlic
3 squirts Ketchup
1/4 cup of Crushed Saltine Crackers (I like to use more to help hold it better. Just add as you go.)
3 squirts Baby Rays BBQ Sauce
Salt and Pepper

1 Cup of Ketchup
1 Cup of BBQ Sauce

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Spray dish or pan with a lot of non stick spray. Place meatloaf in pan. Coat top and sides of meatloaf with half of the sauce and cook at 350 for 30 minutes. Pull Meatloaf out of oven and flip over. Coat remaining side with rest of sauce. Continue cooking at 350 for another 30 minutes. Total cook time is 1 hour and all sides of meatloaf should be covered in sauce. Pull out and enjoy with mashed potatoes or your favorite side dish :)

Not the most glamorous pictures but amazing :)



You are an Impressive Physical Specimen.


For easter this year we went to one of Caseys old college friends (Pooyan) house. Pooyans friend from Utah came down and we made some steaks and played around on his basketball hoop he just put in. During dinner we all expierenced an earthquake aftershock. It was pretty cool. We also went to my Grandma Milius' house to do an easter egg hunt with the cousins... well, my cousins, but they are the same age as Kai so technically I call them his cousins. Here are a few pictures of my little man. He did such a good job finding all the eggs.


Good morning Kai!

Haha.... So about a week ago I go in to get Kai out of his crib and he is of course blabbing to himself like he normally does in the morning. When I look in his room I see this....

So I start talking to him and realize he's not moving from his position. Just looking up at me and smiling. I try and pull him up and yep... he's stuck.

Haha... poor kid. I pull his leg out and it was swollen :( Don't worry it went away after about 10 minutes. He was a good sport.

And then the day proceeded as normal from there....

Thank heavens for boys :)

Noah Bean

So here are some updated new pictures of Noah! Oh and by the way we blessed him today :) Casey did an amazing job and thanks to all the family who came out! We didn't take any pictures sadly :( OH AND!! I got my patriartical blessing today too and I must say it was AMAZING! I have waited too long to get that :) Anywho.... Here are some pictures.


Getting older....

Ever since Kai has been a baby I like to take pictures with him. Its fun to see him grow and get a few snapshots along the way :) Especially since sometimes we run out of things to do while dads at work. Looking at these I can't believe how big he's gotten. I still can't tell who he looks more like. What do you think?
