Trick-or-Treat! Smell my Feet!

We had so much fun on Halloween. We had a spag. dinner with some of Jared's family. Then we took Jett and Andie's two girls Trick-or-Treating. Jett loved it except he got mad when there was no one home to give him candy, but he would hurry to the next house! I didn't think he would get so into it. Next year will be even worse I'm sure.

Good Bye Grandpa

My grandpa Ashworth died on Oct 14th, 2009. I usually don't like to take pics at funerals, but I decided it was ok to take some of the flowers. Im glad to have known him as long as I did and I look forward to seeing him again.

Yummy in your Tummy!

Me and Jett made these yummy cupcakes for Halloween. We brought them to Jared's uncle Duanes house for dinner. Jett ate 4 of them before we left the house. I decided it was ok cuz the night before he had ate a whole plate of broccoli!

Jett's New Playhouse

Jett thinks that this is his new playhouse. He gets mad when the dog wants to go in and sleep.

Our New Addition...




We recently added someone new to our family. His name is Brutus. After alot (and i mean ALOT) of debate about his name we finally decided on one. First it was Arthor..i said no way. Then it was little john...jared said no. Then Jared's bro KC wanted Kimbo (after Kimbo Slice). Then we decided on Bubba, but the dog said no way! So now it is Brutus (or Brute for short). I still think we should have named him Benjamin Franklin cuz his dads name is George Washington and his mom's name is Thnk's Independence. Also his blood line is Red, White and Bully. He really does need a good Patriotic name. I guess Brutus will have to do though.




He is an Olde English Bulldogge. Yeah, that is how it is spelled. I promise! He is not very photogenic, so if you think he is ugly it is just the picture. He is acutally quite handsome.

CAUTION: ANGRY LION!


I put Jett's Halloween costume on him to see if it would be too big or not. He was not a happy camper about it. He is scared of the lion. Hopefully he gets over his fears before Halloween.

What to be....what to be.

I dont know what to dress jett up as for halloween. I want to have his costume early so we can go get pics and have them back in time before halloween. My mother has a very cute lion costume she bought at cabela, or we have a frog costume, or a blue care bear one. Jared has already put a stop on the care bear, so that one is out. I could buy one for jett but they are sorta expensive for the really cute ones.
He loves animals so i think the lion one would be the best. what should I do??? I know this post is boring but it is on my mind.

Facebook Drama!

Lately I have been a little bit disturbed. I have a friend on facebook that is not afraid to speak her mind. Lets call her Sally. A few days ago she was saying how people are bad parents for letting their kids who are under age 13 get a Facebook account. So she called them liars for letting the kids lie about their age. She upset quite a few people, and most of them were her family members.
Today she was saying how she hates her church ward for being so cheap and not supplying plates and utinsils at the ward party. I'm pretty sure it wouldn't kill her to buy a 5 cent fork and maybe a 10 cent plate! Any ward I have ever been in has always had everyone bring their own plates and utinsils! Also I was surprised she would publically discriminate against the church. Especially over something so small! I don't think that people really think of the effects of their words on there.
I shouldn't be judging her, but its really hard not to! I am no better than her if I go around saying bad things about her. I just wanted to know what everyone else would think about this situation.

Good Bye Chunk

So we had to put our dog, Chunk to sleep yesterday. We got a phone call saying that he had bitten a little boy on the back of the leg. He has never done that before. I wish we would have checked out what happened a little more. Now I think we made the wrong decision. We will miss Chunk alot. This whole thing just really sucks. NO more dogs for me.

Jett's One Year Old Pics




Jett had these taken a few months ago and I am just slow at getting them on here. He was really cute. He liked to pose for the camera. Then he decided to be silly and he kept running behind the backdrop and playing hide and seek. I can't complain too much cuz for the most part he was really good. Usually he ends up throwing a fit and crying.

MODEL MATERIAL!




Can I help it if I have one of the cutest kids there ever once was? NO! I admitt it, He is so freaking cute. The other day a complete stranger stopped me in the grocery store and said "oh my goodness, he is such a cute child!" then Jett cheesed it at her and she then said "Oh he is even cuter when he smiles! my you are in trouble! of course I said thank you!


Then tonight at oak city days another complete stranger told me how cute he was and made me go show him to her daughter.


Jett loves all this attention. He is such a flirt and show off for the ladies.


I have decided I need a t-shirt that says "dont waste your breath, I know my kid is so Freakin' Cute!" or something to that affect (effect?).


Anyway, I know every parent thinks there kid is cute , but im pretty sure I have one that is model material! Oh and i have to mention he is also a good dancer. He already knows the sprinkler and he taught it to himself...no lessons at all!

The Real Grey's Anatomy!

So last weekend Jared took his Harley for a ride to Ely with some friends. He came back Saturday and was as red as a lobster and not feeling too chiper. He complained of nausea and was really hot. He took a nap, but wasn't doing much better when he woke up. His hands and feet were ice cold, and he stopped sweating. So I got to drive him down to the ER at the Delta hospital.
Jett came with us and was really excited to see the new and interesting place. Construction was going on so we got to go through a maze of nails, boards, and plastic walls. We finally made it into the ER.
After checking Jared in:
Dr. Jackson was talking to Jared about his heat exhaustion and Jett let out this really big yell. He was very upset that the doctor was not paying attention to him! He got a sticker, goldfish crackers, and a sucker. I wish when I yelled at the doctor I got such good stuff!
Anywho, Jared got pumped full of 3 bags of iv fluids and got lots of drugs to make him feel better. They also had to do blood tests and a chest x-ray. His temp got up to 103.5!!! He ended up being fine but it kinda scared me cuz it took forever for his temp to drop back to normal.

We finally got to go home at midnight. I am really glad that everything was ok. Jared got the next day off work! He is not allowed to go on motorcycle trips anymore.....well not when it is 105 degrees outside!

Just not the Same!

So, lately I have been feeling kinda homesick....for Hawaii. Im pretty sure I accidentally was placed in Utah. What was the stork thinking? He must have bumped his head, and made a wrong turn. Anyway, I am already planning my next trip out there. Hopefully this time we get to stay longer. We will have more time at the beach since we dont have to do all the touristy things. Be there done that! I am overly super excited and can't wait to go again. This time I am going to try and overcome my fear of snorkeling. I parasailed just fine, but can't even stick my head in 3 feet of water. Doesn't make any sense! I found some really cool spiderman snorkel gear at the dollar general and I think I might just go pick it up! wish me luck.

The root of all Evil!

Tonight I couldn't sleep, so I decided to stay up and watch tv. The Jon & Kate plus 8 special that aired a week ago was on, so I watched it. Last week I decided not to watch it cuz I knew I would hear all about what they decided to do. As I watched I couldn't help but feel depressed. I know marriage is hard and everyone has their differences. I got the impression that the two weren't really communicating very well and thought it would be much easier to just get divorced than to work at getting along. I dont know what happened behind closed doors, so I shouldn't judge, but it is hard not too.
This is the classic example of what money does to people. It makes me realize that money does not always solve problems, and It usually causes more! I hope that the jon and also kate will find happiness in the future. I just wish they would have been able to work things out, especially because of the kids. Also I think this helps everyone take a look at their own
marriage and know what is really important in life!
I come from a family where my parents divorced when I was 16. I swore I would never do that to a child. Now after being married I can totally see why people do end up getting divorced.
I remember a saying my aunt had posted on her fridge "The greatest gift you can give your children is parents who love each other!" I totally agree with that! So When times are tough just remember why you got married in the first place and dont give up!

lots happening!

It has been a long time since I wrote something on here!!!! Alot has happened in the last few months. Jett started walking on March 28th ( thanks to his uncle kc). I knew he wanted to do it, but just needed someone to make him do it!

We got a new four wheeler! Jett loves it. He cries when I take him off! We have to go for a ride everyday to get the mail. Which isn't helping my exercise, since i used to walk to get the mail.

This week we are going to Hawaii to visit Jareds parents. Jared wants to go parasailing, so i guess I am going too. Hopefully it is fun!!!! I am a little worried about the plane ride with Jett (that sounds weird) anyway i decided i am not above drugging my kid so i bought some triamenic cold medicine that makes kids drowsy. We will see how well it works.

In august me, jared, my sister nelly and bro tyler, and lots of our friends are going to the Nickelback/Hinder/papa roach/saving abel concert at USANA. I am super excited!!!! I hope it doesn't rain.

HORRAY!!!!!

We finally sold our house!!!!


Today I gave the keys to the couple that bought our house in Delta. I am so glad to be out of that house and even happier to be out of that neighborhood. Oak City is nice and quiet and we don't have to worry about living by snobby people anymore. I can walk out my back door and not have to worry about everyone being able to see me. We do have to deal with the occasional phone call from the neighbor guy asking for eggs, but that is not a big deal! Jared is also really happy about the move too.

BUSY BUSY!

Wow, its been over a month since I have had a new post. I have been interested in Facebook. It sucks you in, even when you are against it! It is nice to talk to old friends though.

Anywho, this week I have been busy getting ready for a baby shower that is for my sister-in-law Bing, and Jared's cousin Sheryl. I hope everything turns out ok. We have already had a little family drama over it, but I am trying not to think about that.

House For SALE!!!!

Kitchen
Downstairs Bathroom

Downstairs Bedroom


Entry Way



We have finally put our house up for sale. I'm really excited that we are not going to have to worry about it anymore. It does suck the we will be sort of homeless for 3-5 years until we find a new one. Oak City has been really nice though. If you know anyone looking, let me know. Upstairs Bathroom
