1st stop - Fred Meyer. I love Fred Meyer - the main reason is the play place - Lex loves it and I can shop all by my self.
They had a play kitchen for $40 in the ad yesterday. (Yes I was going to buy my almost 4 year old son a kitchen.) He plays with the kitchen at my moms, it keeps him busy for hours. The only problem is its outside (they live in Rigby don't ask) and since it is so stinkin' cold he hasn't played with it for awhile.

If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep - you are richer than 75% of this world.
My wonderful husband & son - they keep me laughing.
All our great family and friends - they all do so much for us - We Love You All!
My house, car, cell phone & Ipod - I don't know what I would do with out these. I am really thankful to live in this day and age. I would never have survived as a pioneer.
What are you thankful for?

Here is what we've been doing.....
Friday Oct. 19th Took Lex to the doctor because he had croup. Doc put him on steroids and an antibiotic - he was good to go. I also packed for Kim's Crop
Saturday Oct. 20th Started the day going to the big Roberts sale - didn't want to wait in line so Jessica and I went to subway for breakfast where I was pleasantly surprised. I recommend the Subway on Channing. Carl and I went to the one on Woodruff and it wasn't the same. We went back to Roberts and did some shopping. Then we went to Kim's crop, made really cute stuff and got stuck in the bathroom listening to a man pee with Jessica (more on that later).
Sunday Oct. 21st Lex missed his primary program because he was sick.
Monday Oct. 22nd Our church has a fire in it and so for the next 2 weeks we couldn't use it.
Tuesday Oct. 23rd Mutual canceled because of church fire. It was nice to stay home on a Tuesday, I haven't done that in a while. Lex was upset because Tuesdays are him and daddy's night to play - no girls allowed.
Wednesday Oct. 24th Went to the temple with Young Women presidency. It was really great bonding time. Also ate yummy, cheap temple food.
Saturday Oct. 27th Super Saturday for our ward. They really had soup on Saturday. I made a lot of vinyl signs the past week and I was very glad it was done. They made some really cute projects. We also went to the pumpkin walk in Shelley with Carl's family. The Alan and Eva Tyger family came from Utah for a fun visit.
Sunday Oct. 28th Went to my parents for dinner. Went to Carl's parents and carved pumpkins. Carl's dad grew white pumpkins and we grew the regular orange variety. There was plenty for everyone. I forgot my camera so I will have to get pictures later from grandma Rosie.
Monday Oct. 29th We went to Boo at the Zoo with the Tygers and the rest of Idaho Falls. Don't think we will be attending that next year. Livee was a darling little red riding hood, Hudson was the cutest bee and Lex was spiderman. We only saw about 20 other spidermen there. We went to Pizza Hut afterward for dinner. Yummy! Then we came here and ate some yummy Orange pie. I will post that recipe cuz its good. Lex got to play Pokemon with Dallin. We all just got to hang out. It was really fun.
Tuesday Oct. 30th Mutual at our house for a baby shower. One of the other leaders is having a baby boy any day. We played fun games and learned how to make a diaper cake. We also ate yummy popcorn balls. Need to post that recipe also.
Wednesday Oct. 31st Halloween! Lex went trick or treating to Granma Tolley's, Grandma Rosie's and Tomm & Jessica's. We kept it short because we had to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM.
Thursday Nov. 1st Lex got his teeth worked on. They pulled 2, capped 1, and filled a few cavities. He did really good. It went by really fast - I am glad Carl was there. We played Nintendo's against each other while we were waiting. Lex has to go back in 2 weeks and get a spacer. He was pretty mad when he realized they took out his teeth. Learning about the tooth fairy made it somewhat ok. My cousin Tel and his wife Emily were at the same hospital having their 1st baby the same day! She wasn't born while we were there but I hear she is a doll. Her name is Kanani Jewel! Love it!
Saturday Nov. 3rd stayed home all day! Carl cleaned out the vehicles I love him for that. I cleaned of my desk's. They are still a mess. It was a really good relaxing day. I didn't even put on makeup - love days like that.
Did you make it through that? Holly Molly! Now that I am caught up I promise to post fun things - like pictures!

Pushing Daisies - Fun show and I love Ned and Chuck
Greys - Cant wait for tonight! What is going to happen with George and Callie?
Private Practice - Wasn't sure at first but I like it now!
Desperate Housewives - At first I was really appalled that my mother would watch such a show but now I Love it!
With out a trace - Good drama but not bloody and gutty like CSI
Simpsons - Carl and Lex's Favorite
I am getting really excited for the ETM crop on Saturday! It will be a fun girl day with Jessica, Jamie, Amanda. The girl that does me and Jamie's hair is also coming with her mama and sister. I am going to try and get organized so I can get lots done!
Oh - also I think Lex can spell - This morning Carl and I were talking about taking Lex to the D-O-C-T-O-R for his cough. Lex said no I don't need to go to the doctor today. Maybe he's a really smart kid or maybe his parents just think so.
Have a Happy Thursday!

So today I went and picked up Lex from preschool. We drive down the road and something stinks so bad. I thought it smelled like puke or poop or something nasty. I check Lexs shoes, Miss Janet does have a cat and sometimes they get to play in the backyard. Maybe the cat left something in the grass and Lex stepped on it.
So I look in his backpack totally expecting to see somebodies hurled breakfast.
So I tell myself I am being overly sensitive to some little smell. (I always think my car smells like burning peanut butter and Carl tells me I am crazy, maybe I am since the last 3 cars I have owned have smelled like that at 1 time or another.)
Lex and I go to Walmart and pick up some cute pictures from Jessica.(a entire summers worth. Note to self - get pictures printed more often) A couple of times while I am talking to her I smell the gross smell. Then I think well maybe Lex crapped himself. It's never happened before. So after chatting with her we leave and I check Lex's shorts. Notta. Thank goodness!
So finally we are getting in the car and I look at my shoes. Yellowish greenish some kind of animal crap all over one side and on the bottom! Let me just tell you it was GROSS! With a capital GGGGRRRRRR!
So to everyone in Walmart who thinks I smell like shit - I am really sorry! I did smell like shit. Have a happy day and think of a nice good clean smell!

Ate dinner at Grandma Tolley's and played with Maddie. She is so cute! She sucks her fingers just the way I used to (ring and middle finger)! Mason calls her precious. He says things like "where's precious?" How precious is that? Watched Desperate Housewives. Cant wait to watch it again tonight!
Ate dinner with the Tyger clan, I made Turkey spaghetti with whole wheat pasta. YUM! We also got to see this lil punkin...
I think my camera spooked him
Lost my voice
Wednesday, Thursday & Friday
Drank a lot of this....
Merry Christmas! Oh - wait its only October. All the snow really makes me want to get out the Christmas Decor and have a legitimate reason to listen to Sarah's Christmas CD that I have been listening to all summer. Lex and the dogs loved all the snow. Well Lex did anyway. Carl tried to save our pumpkins.Carl and Lex also built a snowman. It was a dang cute snowman! He had corn for ears, beets for eyes, Carrot for his nose, and a big smiling cucumber for his mouth! I took pictures I promise, but somehow they have disappeared. So you will have to use your imagination.
We also watched Polar Express. HOT!HOT!HOT! HotChocolate! and sang that song several times.

Lex: I know what my prize could be
Lex: How about you take me to daddy's work and then just go away!
So I did just that. I was thinking I would go pick him up in an hour or so. Well he stayed all day. He got to go to lunch and everything. He loved working with Daddy, Uncle Paul, and Jason. Carl said he was really good. He just played in the dirt all day. Carl said it was fun to have him there. I love my cute boys!

- Drink at least 64 oz of water everyday.
- Read books on how to be a good mommy
- Keep up my blog (my way of journaling)
We will see how it goes.
Lex loved his first week of preschool. Everyone told me how fast the 2 hours would go by, to my surprise I was waiting for 11:00 to come. The first day I took movies back, went to Carolyn's work and saw her display, went grocery shopping, went home and put the groceries away, and did the dishes. To my amazement I still had 15 minutes before I had to pick him up. Maybe I missed him just a little. I'm sure as I get used to it I will run out of time. Happy day!
