I've been tagged


Here are the Rules:

A: Each player answers the questions about themselves.

B: At the end of the post, the player then tags 3 people and posts their names, then goes to their blog and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.


10 Years Ago ... I was in 8th grade. I don't really remember a whole lot. I got to start wearing makeup that year. :)

What Would I Do If I Became A Millionaire? First I would pay off my car. Yahoo!! Then I'd pay off student loans. And hmm... We'd put some into some retirement something so Chris won't have to work forever.


Jobs That I Have Had . . . I started out cleaning bathrooms at a trailer park. YAY! Then I cleaned the rooms at the Strawberry Lodge. UGh. But I did see Bruce Willis with his son. :) I worked Cherry season in Payson. No life, but tons of fun. I worked at Seven Peaks, which was a blast. Craigo's Pizza in Rexburg Idaho. PDC. But my favorite was being a nanny, sorta, for twins in Rexburg, Izzy & Gabby. Love ya girls!


5 Things People Don't Know About Me. My life is pretty much an open book. I tell everyone everything so this might be a little difficult.

1. I bite my nails. (terrible habit that is killing me to try and break.. Any advice on that??)
2. I got my car before I got my job 3 years ago.
3. It took me 3 months after Chris told me he loved me to say it back. Good thing he really loved me and still does!
4. I hate shopping at Wal-Mart
5. American Idol is my favorite show!

Snowboarding!

So last month Tyler, Chris' brother who is a snowboard instructor at Sundance took all of us up for a snowboard lesson. It was lots of fun. Nicole and Andrea were in town from New York, so it was all of the kids. Don't worry I survived. I'm not so good with the whole balancing part though. :) Thanks Ty!

Mindy

Nicole & Andrea

Chris was amazing at it. I was actually surprised how quickly he caught on.
This is us just after the fact. We were soaked through, because it snowed all morning. It was a blast though. Maybe we'll even try it again next year!

BYU Basketball


So about a month ago my dad took us all to a BYU Basketball game. It was a lot fun. BYU totally won by like 20 points. It was very big and very loud and that was definitely not Jayden's favorite part. The noise just scared him. :(

POOR GUY!! SCARED TO DEATH!!
We did learn that if we would hold our fingers over his ears, so he couldn't hear, he was fine. So we fed him a bottle and took turns plugging his ears and he slept through almost the whole first half. :) It sure is a killer on your arms and back though. The second half was spent in the hall mostly.

Jared, Jessica & Jason came. (We didn't catch Jess in a picture though. Sorry Jess!)

Jason had a blast! Alesha is his best pal. :)

We need to take lessons from Jason on how to have fun!! (We're working on not freaking out at loud noises. The blow dryer almost doesn't bother Jayden. But the vacuum, that's another story)


It was our first BYU Basketball game, and I think next time we'll wait til he's about 2 or 3. :)

Thanks a ton for all the photos Mel. You are the greatest!! :)

Thanks Dad & Mom. It was a blast!!

My little mover!!

Jayden does some crazy things sometimes. Like one day just after he started rolling over, he was laying on a blanket and rolled over but was holding onto the edge of the blanket and so he took the blanket with him.


And then Yesterday Chris and I were eating dinner and Jayden was playing in the living room. All the sudden is was silent. (I've learned that silence is never a good thing) So we went in and found him in the bottom of his bouncer. He had climbed into his bouncer/walker thing. And he was reaching for cords. (Cords are his favorite. Next to my cell phone!) So, we caught him in the act. He's starting to get into everything. :0)

I Finally Started!

Well I've been keeping up on everyone else blog, and finally decided to start my own. So, here it goes! :) First I have to agree with Jennifer, this stuff is hard to figure out. I think I've been going at it for like an hour now. (And I thought I knew computers.)

So Jayden has just started scooting forward. Yesterday he started this army crawl that is so cute. Today he even got up on his knees and maybe moved a knee or 2.

We're learning how much we need to baby proof the house. The other day while I was making dinner Jayden was in the living room and all the sudden he stopped making noise. So I came to check on him and he was under the desk playing with all the cords to the computer. He can just get right under the chair. Silly boy! It's so exciting to see him move, but it also is keeping me alert.
