Andie's Amazing Crab Salad

2-3 cups cooked sticky rice (cooled)
3 avocadoes cut up into pieces
2 cucumbers cut up (english ones are better)
1 cup raw carrots grated
1 bunch romaine lettuce cut up
1 green pepper diced
dry seaweed (just a little spinkled in)
1 package imitation crab meat cut up
Mix all together in bowl

Wasabi, soy sauce, Rice Vinegar
not sure of the amounts yet

Dont add sauce in salad. Just put a little on top when dished up on your plate! Also it is good without green peppers and seaweed.

Merry Christmas!

This year we decided to stay in Oak City for Christmas cuz Jared's brother and wife didn't have anywhere else to go. On Chrtistmas Day his sisters Andie, Tracie, and Mandie came with their families. We ate a turkey dinner complete with mashed potatoes, rolls, green bean casserole, and Andie's amazing sushi salad.

Jett got lots of toys. His cousin Brandie would be glad, since she thought Jett was a poor baby who didn't have any toys.

Jared bought us pjs. I got the game Deal orNo deal, Mariah Carey perfume, and Grey's Anatomy.

We are glad we have Family to spend the Holidays with!

~The Truth about Being a Mom~

I always thought that being a mom couldn't be as hard as my mom made it out to be. Now after having little Jett Lee, I know my mom was wrong. It is ten times harder than she made it seem. Now I know why she used to lock herself in the bathroom and tell us to go away.

I have never been more tired and worn out in my life (and i thought high school and college was hard). I'm not sure how mom's do it. Especially with twins or siblings that are born close together. I hate it when people ask me when I am going to have another child. Don't they realize how hard it is? Then there is the pregnancy. Nine months of throwing up and feeling like crap. Im in no hurry to do it again.

Even though this is a super tough job, it was really worth it. Jett is the second love of my life (after jared of course). I have grown to love him more than I thought I ever could. He makes our home crazy, but filled with love. This blog entry would be longer, but he is screaming for attention right now. Good thing he is cute!

Christmas Time!

It's Christmas time again! Seven more days! This year is different bcuz of Jett. he has already figured out the present opening thing.
Then part of Jared's Family being in Hawaii. Today it snowed alot in Oak City. The pine trees are really pretty with all the snow on them. I wanted to shovel the driveway, but I couldn't find the snow shovel. I used a big push broom instead. It actually worked really well.
