Would you or would you not? That is the question.

So I really think it's funny on all the baby shows on TV that they say, "This big family is now bigger with the birth of their third child." WHAT? Are they serious? This always makes me laugh. We have 5, bigger then most I agree, but I don't think it's really that bis at all. My mom comes from a family of 10. That's big, but come on 3? With three kids you can still fit in a car. You don't need anything bigger, it would be more comfortable, but not a necessity. We have 5, I don't believe we are done having kids. The only vehicles we would really fit in is an 8,12, or 15 passenger van. I want the 15 so we never have to worry about space. Yes, you read it right I don't think we are done. I just feel that our family is not complete, but we are complete until Ross is done with school. So here is my question, Would you live a day as me. All 5 kids for the summer? Shopping with all of them, Dr's appointments, the whole shebang? I always wonder what people think when they see us. Well I usually don't have to imagine, they say it out loud. So there is my question. Let me know what you think.
Really let me know. Do you think you could do it? Even if i don't know you feel free to leave your thoughts.
Have a great day!!

I have never been tagged before.

1. link the person who tagged you (Shellee Mellor
2. post these rules
3. tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours
4. tag 6 fellow bloggers by linking them

1- I never really dated my husband. We have been friends since we were 9. He came home from his mission in April of 1999, I came home to have surgery in Sept. of 1999.
I was released in Oct. of 1999 and we were engaged Dec. 26th 1999. We were then married Feb. 29th 2000.

2- I have a very sarcastic side. Who me? Never. If there is something to be made fun of, I do it. I am never mean about it, and it is always done in fun, and I'm really good at it. This "talent" has come in handy when times are bad for some of my friends.They call me to complain or vent and end up laughing.

3- I hate being late I would rather not go if we are going to be late. On the other hand I hate it when other people are late. I think it's really rude and inconsiderate. There is a starting time for things for a reason people. i.e Church starts at 9:00 am people, not 9:05. It's just me, it makes me irritated.

4- No matter where I have lived I complain about the way the people in that state drive. In Utah they drive fast, which I don't mind, Ross hates it though. In Arizona they either leave their turn signal on or don't turn it on at all. I Texas they drive slow and don't look where they are going. That is the reason I had to have surgery. The surgery from #1.

5- I love lilies and orchids. LOVE them. Want my whole house to be filled with them. Every room, everywhere. Well any plant will do , but these are my favorites.

6- I hate the grass and lack of grass in Arizona. I want grass that I don't have to replant every 6 months. i want thick green grass that you can roll around in and not have to worry about stiff dead grass.

Well that's me, and some of the weird stuff in my life.
Now I tag

My Dad

My dad is the greatest! I know everybody thinks their dad is, but my dad is the real deal. Who's dad taught them to drive at 8? My dad. Who's dad taught them how to drive a 20+ foot box van for their driving test? My dad. Who's dad taught them to love the outdoors? My dad. Who's dad taught them how to fish? My dad. Who's dad carries a fishing pole in his truck at all times? My dad. Who's dad taught them to dutch oven cook? My dad. Who's dad taught them to use a gun? My dad. Who's dad loves to play practical jokes? You guessed it, my dad. Who's dad was there when his daughter was going off the deep end of life and was there to catch her? MY DAD. Thank you dad for all the things I have seem you do in my life and for all the things I haven't seem you do, that you have done. I'm sad that my kids don't get to know you as I know you, and don't get to love you as I love you.


Live, Laugh, Love. If I didn't do this on a daily basis I think I would be insane. There is no doubt in my mind. I can either laugh or cry. I can not do both. This is my day. Laugh or cry? I take laugh. Things seem to be on a roller coaster here. One day up the other down. I think that these people who complain about 2 or 3 kids need their heads examined. I don't even remember 2 or 3 kids any more. Everyday I get up and think if I can make it until 10 am.(nap time for the younger 3.) Then it's can I make it to 3 pm. (Second nap time.) Then Can I make it until 7:30( BEDTIME). That is how I live. I laugh through out the day to keep from going completely crazy. All day long I love. Wes loves to give hugs. Loving is the easiest part of my day. That is how I LIVE, LAUGH, LOVE.

That car are you?

I'm a Ford Mustang!

You're an American classic -- fast, strong, and bold. You're not snobby or pretentious, but you have what it takes to give anyone a run for their money.

Lost book.

Last Sunday Dylan's primary class talked about getting answers to prayers. she came home and told me a story about a little boy who lost some money and prayed to find it, and did. Fast forward to this last Friday(30th). We were getting ready to go to the library, like we do every Friday, and she couldn't find one of her books. I was getting upset because she had just had it the night before. We were looking all over and no book. I went to look in her room and there she was on the floor. I was getting even more mad because I thought that she was goofing off and not looking. I said, "What are you doing." She said "I'm praying to get help to find my book." I felt so bad. Here I was ready to tell her to stop goofing off and look for her book, and she was praying. I say, "Good for you." Then I went into the front room to look, and feel like a complete idiot. As she started to come down the hall a few seconds later I found the book. The smile on her face is something I will never forget. It is at that moment that she knew prayer were really answered. I told her she needed to say another payer to thank Heavenly Father for helping us. What a great day!
