As many of you know my mom is stuck in the awful hospital. Tuesday night they diagnosed her with an obstructed intestine... or something like that.
Anyway, I just have been really thinking about her a lot the last couple of days. She has done so much for Tyler, Lucy and I.
Mom, I am so grateful that I chose you up in Heaven. You are such a blessing. You have instilled righteousness in my life. You are always there for me, you give great advice. And you know when to just let me live and learn myself. I love you so much, and I HATE knowing that you are in pain. But you can't tell me not to worry about you. You are my best friend, and I know you would worry about me if I was laying in a hospital bed. So I am writing this to thank you for everything. For staying with me in Salt Lake when Lucy was born, being my support everyday. That was such a scary time for me, and I would have never made it without you. For helping us financially, without giving it a second thought, that is such a huge deal to me, thank you. For making me laugh when I am sad. For Supporting me when you know I am doing something stupid. For not judging me and loving me for who I am. For believing in me when I don't believe in myself. Thank you for always living the Gospel, you are an amazing example.
You are the greatest Sister, Daughter, Grandma, Wife, and Mom anyone could ask for. We love you and pray for you always. Get better soon.
I Love You Forever.

Since Tyler's bike got stolen three weeks ago, and he Got run over by a car on mine (we trashed it). I got a new one! Well, for right now it is his, for school and work. But after that it will be mine. Its a pretty sweet bike! You can't really tell, cause the sun went down, but it is baby blue... Love it! I haven't had a new bike since I was like 7. I have always had hand-me-downs. So I'm way excited!

Or should I say "White Trash Fest"? Man... I was warned by a few people, including the ones that we went with (Steve and Michelle) this was no Lynden Fair. Boy were they right! We decided to make the best of it anyway, why not? at least it didn't cost anything to get in.
We started off my watching some "mutten busting" for those of you who don't know what that is (because I didn't) it is basically little, and i mean little, kids riding sheep. trying to see how long they can stay on. It was pretty entertaining. I dont think we will be entering Lucy in any time soon though. After that Steve decided to enter himself into the Mens Pie Eating contest. Tyler was going to enter in too, but once he looked at those pies, he said NO WAY! These were HUGE Costco Chocolate Moose Pies. So sick! And to watch these guys just stuff their faces was disgusting! As you can tell from the videos, Steve wasn't really in it to win. Andrew and Trevor even joined in. But hey! A free pie ain't bad!! So they had dessert for later.
We all entered in the Root Beer chugging contest, but Trevor and Andrew were the only brave ones. Andrew was close to winning, and Trevor preferred to sip his root beer slowly. lol.
I did however get my funnel cake that I went there for. All in all I think It was great entertainment when you have nothing else to do on a Saturday night! Oh the Joys of Pocatello Idaho! Here are some pics for you all to enjoy! PS.. Thanks Harrison's for humoring us for the night :)

So Shanna tells me that Jackson loves to watch Lucy, so Here are some videos for you Jacko!
Tyler and I were at WalMart last night, and Tyler saw this car, and just had to get it for Lucy. Which is so funny because he has never bought her a toy. I am the one that is always asking him if I can buy her something . So I thought it was so cute! So we came home, and even though it was like 11 pm, he wanted to put it together for her and let her play with it for a while, before she went to bed. And I tell you what, this is the best thing we ever did! She loves it!! She gets on and off, walks it around. For her birthday last year Gma Carolyn get her a shopping cart, and she just wasnt stable enough to walk with it. she fell a lot. this was right around when her arthritis started... so to look at her now!! Holy cow. I have been so emotional over the whole thing! Heavenly Father has truly blessed our little miracle baby!

Do you ever get super annoyed with the little things that your husband does? Like stupid things? Well I sure do. But he cant help it... I have decided that the things he does are just him. Its not going to change so I need to just realize that I love him no matter what. But yesterday, BOY I threw a couple of big fits. It felt like we fought about EVERYTHING under the sun. It ended up boiling down to the fact that I do a lot for him to show him that I love him. He comes home to a clean house, I am always there at 6 when he has his dinner break with a hot plate of food, I do the dishes, I make sure that he always has something in the house to snack on, I take care of our daughter all day long everyday. I never complain that he is gone all the time anymore. I have always been supportive of everything. Heck, I moved away from everybody and everything I ever knew for us. And then did it again, no questions asked. And all I ask for in return is some flowers once in a while. Suprize me with a movie and chocolates every once in a while. Something to show that you were thinking of me that day. Everything I do everyday is always for him. I love him so much and I just hope that he knows that.
So I asked him last night after he got home what he thinks that I do to show him that I love him... and he named all of those things. So I was glad that he actually recognized the things I was doing. I know that Tyler is so busy and thats okay. But in the times like this where he has no school, and has no homework, I didn't think it was too much to ask to help out a little. So needless to say I let him in on a few of my thoughts yesterday, and I think it is something that we need to do as a couple. In order for our marriage to work I need to have those moments where I blow up and cry, so he knows how important these simple things are to me. If I am wrong, and any of you disagree than please keep your comments to yourself, but if you agree and have the same feelings, please do comment so that I know I am not just NEEDY wife, and whining for no reason. lol.
Anyway, Tyler came home at 10:30 last night with a little "I Love You" gift. It was so thoughtful.
Now if he can only do it when we are not fighting..... haha. Tyler I love you so much. I give my whole self to you every day of my life and the best thing I ever did was marry you. Thank You for being such a wonderful Husband. Neither of us are perfect, and I know this. I look forward to many more years together. Thank you for staying with me even though sometimes I can get a little Crazy on you! Together Forever <3
