Random Thoughts

- Today I started filling out pre-school papers for Zach... Where does the time go?  He will be turning 3 this June and going to pre-school.... Time to start potty training and getting him in a big bed... What happened to my baby?   It is ok, he is such a wild little boy... He is animated and LOUD!!  He repeats himself and stutters a lot.. Every time he talks, the first thing he says is "guess what" about 3 times before he actually says something.   I love that he is cuddly and still really wants me to hold him.. his head  fits right in the space between my neck and chin... it is when he is resting there that I feel complete and know exactly who I am...

- Alex my buddy in the morning....  has afternoon Kindergarten so he is all mine in the morning!!! I love this precious time with him... he is the most creative kid I know.  He is always building things and taking them apart.  He got our boxes from Costco the other night and turned himself into a robot.  He loves playing the WII... He has a strong personality... when he gets an idea he will NOT let it drop.. which can be taxing or wonderful depending on the idea.. he also still LOVES me.... he cuddles... he kisses.. he holds my hand and again, my life is simply perfect because he loves me perfect!!!

-Sami is in 2nd grade and had to make her Valentine box.  She is super on the ball and totally excited to do any kind of school project.  We went up to Grandma Sans last night and used her cricket to cut out some hearts for her box.  Sami is so passionate and kind.  She has a million friends and everyone wants to play with her.  She is very sensitive and takes good care of me.  I know it should be the other way around but she is already mothering and I am the lucky recipient.....

-Chad is busy busy busy.. which equals.. happy, happy, happy...  He works full time and teaches spin at the Rec center and he is also instructing a "Century" bike camp... He is in the High Council and is helping with Trek this year... he is truly an amazing man... He loves the gospel and the Savior so much.  He is the most goal oriented, determined person I know.  Chad is what I would call "mentally tough".  I look forward to him getting home in the evenings, I look forward to the 30 minutes we have together at night to laugh and talk in bed, even when he is sooo tired, I look forward to praying with him and waking up with him.... I look forward to spending the rest of my life with him...

                                            Alex has spring fever and loves his scooter!!
                                         Zach is a "ham".  That is all I have to say!!
                                          Sami on a hike this summer.  What a pretty day!
                                     Chad riding his bike in his second "Ironman in Az.. It was
                                             raining and so cold!!!
My life is crazy and good......
