Happy Thanksgiving!

Well, I'm waiting to go over to my parents house this morning and help cook some yummies, so while I'm waiting I thought I'd post a little. Our trip is going very well and we have two Thanksgiving dinners today! I can barely eat half a plate so I don't know what I will do...

I have been taking a few pics but I will post those when I get home. Here is the one I took from my phone though from when Heather, Cindi, and me saw Twilight:

Also, I was very excited because yesterday I finally got my new phone (the new enV maroon!)! We got a steal of a deal!!! I am loving it! Anyway...that's it for now! Happy Turkey Day everyone!

Monday, November 24, 2008


We have been in Colorado since Friday and have already packed in a ton of fun stuff! It feels like we have been here forever but it's already going by so fast. My sisters and I weren't going to be able to go to Twilight until today but we were actually able to go on Saturday night! We were so excited! I have a picture of us in our shirts but I don't have it on this computer so I will post it when I get home. Anyway, I don't even know where to start...

First of all, I just want to say that over all, I LOVED IT!!! I could ramble on and on about this part and that and what I didn't like and did like, but I won't go into too many details. :) I went to it expecting that there was no way a two hour movie could perfectly depict a book, so I wasn't disappointed at all. The only thing I was a little disappointed with was the meadow scene, but I won't go into details. It was just a little awkward. And there were scenes I was hoping they would have that they didn't but I think they did an excellent job at picking the best things to fit in the movie. It was just too short!

I was worried about the actors too, but after seeing it I can say I don't think they could have picked better people to play the parts!! I thought Kristen Stewart hit the part right on the mark! She did so good! And of course I could go on and on about my opinion of Edward. :) I thought Robert Pattinson so exceptional! He still didn't hit it as perfectly as I imagine Edward in my heard while reading the book (the Edward in the books seems to take a little more control and to be a little less awkward....) but I don't even care! He did so good at portraying him and the chemistry between them was so steamy (I wanted to watch that kiss scene over and over again...)! All summed up, he was extremely hot. :)

I tried to think how the movie would be to someone who hadn't read the books and I think someone would like it, but you would only know the basics and the stuff on the if you haven't read it, YOU HAVE TO READ IT!!! It's so much better when you can connect with the characters and know the background of what is going on.

There were some scenes that kind of irritated me also because they didn't happen at all the way they did in the book, but I expected that so it didn't bother me too much. It was still wonderful! Oh, and I loved the way it ended...leaving you already craving for the next one (New Moon)! I loved seeing the beginning spark of the rivalry between Jacob and Edward and can't wait to see it grow! I'm excited to see how they are going to do the next one with the wolves, etc.

My sisters and I were a little annoyed because we felt like we were the oldest ones at the movie...and definitely the most mature. The entire theater (and it was huge) was FULL of mostly middle schoolers. The whole row behind us was middle school aged boys who kept kicking the seats. Someone kept throwing candy at my sister, Cindi's, head (which I actually thought was pretty funny...). And of course everyone screamed when Edward came on screen the first time, but even more annoying, every single time it showed Jacob, the whole audience would scream even louder and yell things like "You're so hot!" It was irritating especially for the fact that you couldn't hear the lines at some points. And of course there was cheering at the opening and the ending of the movie...which I did participate in a little, I am unashamed to say....

But we had so much fun and as soon as it was over I was so sad that I couldn't watch it right away again. Because I want it over and over and over... :) I just can't wait until it comes out on video!!!

Fun Things

I just wanted to say how excited I am that we are coming to Colorado in FIVE DAYS!!!!! I am so excited to spend Thanksgiving with our families. My sisters and bro-in-law are doing the dinner at my house, letting my mom sit out, and I am going to try to help them too! It should be interesting... :) I am hoping it snows while we're there so Sam can experience playing in the snow for the first time! I was browsing Joanne's Fabrics yesterday (love that store!) and they have the cutest Thanksgiving and Christmas stuff on sale!!! 70% off Thanksgiving stuff (decorations, etc.) and 50% off Christmas stuff! So of course I bought some stuff for DIRT cheep! Here's one of the little things I got...

I know it will only be up for about another week, but I don't care. I needed some sort of Thanksgiving decor in my house...and at least I will have it for the coming years!

So, one of the main things we wanted to get Sam for Christmas is a tricycle because he is starting to ride some of his toys that weren't meant for sitting on. So we found a really cheap one yesterday and bought it, since we aren't going to be able to get one during the black friday shopping in Colorado (can't bring it back on the plane)!! We are so excited for black friday! I love the rush and sales!'s his trike. Sorry....I'm a little excited about it. :)

The Hatred Continues...

I heart something that disturbed me very much today...due to the whole proposition 8 thing, someone left a burning Book of Mormon on the steps of the Easter church building in Littleton, CO (I had many dances and stake events at this building growing up and it's the building my in-laws currently attend for church). It surprises me that even in other states the church is being targeted because of this! It surprises me how much hate people have that they can do that! It's so disresepectful...especially with the most important and inspired book we will ever have! It breaks my heart and I hope this hate dies down and doesn't worsen. Here is a link to the short article about it, if anyone is interested:

I just don't understand the point of even "quietly protesting." What does it accomplish? I understand we have a right to it (as long as people don't get out of hand!!!) and I am grateful for that, but it just doesn't make sense to me.

And the Teething Continues...

I know I am always writing posts about Sam and how it's always one thing or another with him, but hey...that's my life right now. I am happy to report, first of all, that he is doing amazingly well without the binky and if I would have known it was going to be this easy I would have tried this a long time ago!! He doesn't ever to seem to remember it and when he does, he quickly gets over he knows he is a big boy and doesn't need it. Of course there are those times where I am thinking, "If only he still had his binky..." because I know there are certain situations he would do better in with it, but that's all a part of growing up!

Nap and night times are good and normal without it. When he does have episodes at night, we know he would be having them even if he still had the binky because he was having them before we took him off of it. But he goes down great...we figured out that to put him down peacefully at night we need to leave the hall light on until he's asleep. It's amazing how much that does! It's like magic! Last night was the first night with his new night light and he didn't wake up at all throughout the night which was wonderful!! But it could just be a good night...we will see.

Another thing that I am sure has been effecting the terribleness of his sleeping is his teething. He has been teething for so long and I am just trying to wait patiently for it to be over with! When I first noticed the teeth coming through (hopefully the last ones for a really long time!) it was forever ago and then they seemed to have went back down and now coming through again. So it's been a long month. Especially these last few days. He cries when he chews on anything and even when I give him a kiss on the cheek. He has been SO cranky and needy and impossible. He is definitely in the terrible twos and this just makes it worse.

So, anyway...that's all that has been going on with us lately! Hopefully I will have more exciting things to report of soon.

Playing In the Rain

So, it rained/hailed for the first time tonight in a while here (and it was actually pretty cold!) and Sam just so happened to be playing outside when the short downpour started. When I heard it start I went out in the backyard and he was standing in the middle of the grass with a huge smile on his face while he let the freezing cold rain and hail poor all over his little self. I kept trying to beckon him to come back under the patio but he wouldn't. He's so funny that way. He loves getting wet, even if it's miserable and uncomfortable and cold! Definitely doesn't get that from mommy! Anyway, when he finally came back under the patio I put his hood on, but it was too late...he was already drenched. He had hail and rain soaking his head. Hopefully he doesn't get a cold. :)

Well, yesterday didn't go as well without his binky but it was because he was teething too. Perfect timing, right? I guess there never is a perfect time though with kids. He has done MUCH better today though. He hasn't asked for it once, though when he woke from his nap he was cranky for a really long time...again, I think due to the teething. He still woke up once in the middle of the night crying his head off, but it wasn't as bad as the first night, and honestly, I'm not too sure it is even because of the binky. He has been having this problem for the last two weeks or so, so I am associating it with something else unknown at this point. I am thinking nightmares or night terrors or getting scared. I have talked to a lot of people that have told me their kids have experienced this at the same age. Poor thing. I don't know what else to do for him. I hope the stage doesn't last long! I am definitely getting him a night light when I am in town for my dr. appt. tomorrow!

Saturday, November 8, 2008


Okay, I had to wait until Sam was down for his nap to do this last post because it took me two hours to do those last two and he was driving me insane. He is so cranky today and needy and I don't know why. He hasn't necessarily asked for his binky (except when I just put him down for his nap) so I'm not sure if that's been it or not.

Anyway, there was just a few other small things I felt like blogging about. Like about how EXTREMELY excited I am to go to Colorado in two weeks! It can't come soon enough. I have been counting down the days. I can't even explain how elated I feel at being able to be with our families there again for Thanksgiving. I just love being there and I hope that when it comes time for us to come back home after our trip that I'm not depressed.

I am so excited to see everyone and have everyone see Sam and how much he has grown and changed! Dave made me almost want to cry yesterday when he suggested that maybe we should do Sam's first haircut while we were there so the family could be around for it. I haven't even thought about getting his first haircut anytime even remotely soon!! Yeah, he might need one, but I don't think I can part with his hair! His cute baby blond long curls in the back! It makes me sad even to think about it because I love his hair SO much! He will be so much more like a like a normal little boy toddler. I don't know...we will just have to see...

I am going to be going to Jessica's child development (that's what it is right?) class while I'm there too to talk to the class about being pregnant and being a mom. I'm not really sure what I'm going to say or talk about but I do have PLENTY. :) And poor Jess is having her jaw surgery three days before we get there...hopefully she feels somewhat better when we come! I will try not to eat yummy Thanksgiving dinner in front of you Jess... :)

Another reason I am so excited is because....drum roll...Twilight comes out the same day we arrive there and I get to see it with my sisters! I am so excited and I just got done reading Becky's copy of the movie companion book (a book about the movie about the book...haha...) and it made me INCREDIBLY STOKED to see it. I get more excited with each new picture I see or each new video or preview I watch. Counting down the days...Ahhh...

The last thing I want to really comment on is how sad I feel for where this world is heading. I really hadn't realized how bad it was until I have heard and seen pictures of all the protesting that has been going on for the prop 8 thing in California. How could people be so angry when everyone voted on it and the majority won? The hate and even the violence people have been displaying to our church just for vocally expressing that we support it, blows my mind. It's not like our church made the decision! Obviously the majority of the people in CA wanted gay marriage banned, so why do they have to take it out on everyone else, including our church? What they're doing is objecting to the system we have in place where everyone is free to choose and vote!! I don't get it and it makes me sad and sick that people can be this way. This is one of the reasons our church doesn't get involved in political issues, but this wasn't even a political was an issue of the way of life and what's right and wrong and how that simple prop could change the way our children are taught in schools, etc. I'm grateful that the church has taken a stand!! And the violence being shown makes me realize more and more how close we are to the second coming! And being so, we will get much more persecution than this! I pray for the country, and especially the people in CA! And thanks Karyn for all the info you provided about this on your blog!

I finally got my hair trimmed and highlighted (way past due!) and here's how it looks...kind of. That was the day it got done so it wasn't really styled. It isn't much different, but it's enough of a change!

This is just a cute picture of Sam when he fell asleep on the couch a couple days ago...

Halloween...a little late...

Cass (Medusa), Sam, and Helen (Bindy Erwin)

Well, I decided to finally post about how our Halloween night went! We drove down to "the Valley" (Queen Creek) to stay the weekend with the Stewarts when Dave got off work on Halloween and we got there just in time as Tiff just started taking Cass and Helen trick-or-treating. So we jumped out of the car, put his costume on and headed out. He loved it of course and it only took him a second to get the hang of it.

He was so cute! And he endured for longer than I thought he would. We went to at least 3 very long streets (which, to my surprise, had quite a few trick-or-treaters on them!) before he started fussing even a little. He knew to hold my hand and let me hold his pumpkin bucket (because he would try taking out the candy or throwing it down). When we would go to people's doors he would know to take a piece of candy and then put it in his own bucket. He absolutely loved it and was just so cute about it! One person was even giving out little mini pumpkins, which he loved to grab and put in his bucket. Everyone we saw just thought he was the cutest dragon ever! This was definitely my favorite Halloween ever because of him!

The rest of that weekend was fun just hanging out with Brand and Tiff, who we haven't seen in forever. Dave, Brand, Tiff, James, Ben, Nick, Brent, and Doug all went paintballing Saturday morning...actually all day Saturday and they all had a lot of fun, especially Ben because it was his first time going. (Ben and Jame's are Dave's friends from work and also our Heroes buddies every Monday night). While they were out Saturday I went around to what seemed like every place in the Mesa area to run errands. We bought our first load of food storage from the church, which felt nice...until I sat down yesterday and calculated that to get a year supply, what we got didn't even really make a dent...that was a completely overwhelming moment....

Anyway, to any of you who might ever go to Mesa and buy food storage from the church, make sure you have your check book or exact cash! I learned that the hard way. I was there for about an hour and a half before I actually drove out of there with four boxes. I forgot my checkbook so I had to drive all the way up the street to some quicky mart place and take money out of the ATM (which Chase charged me 3.50 for!!) and go back only to find out it had to be exact change (thanks for telling me that the first time lady! The ATM only gives out $20 bills, everyone knows that!), so I had to drive all the way back to the mart and buy a bag of chips in order to get the exact amount I needed. This was a task being pregnant and having Sam because there was no where to park close to the entrance so each time I had to get in and out of the car and walk all the way around the building, either slowly tugging him along or holding him, which I feel can barely do anymore. Anyway, I finally got out of there and next time I definitely wont forget my check book!

Anyway, Saturday night we just took it easy and hung out, watched some funny stuff and then Sunday went to our regional conference, which was broadcast from Salt Lake. President Packer spoke and it was really good, except it was hard to really pay attention because we were on the hard chairs and it's very difficult to keep Sam steady with those, so most of the time I was in the foyer.

Anyway, that was our Halloween weekend!

He doesn't look very happy but he was!

Binky Stories...Blah Blah Blah...

Well, I am attempting to type this with Sam in my lap again, which is usually the case. It's always either that or waiting until his afternoon nap. Who the time I actually finish it might be that time anyway. Most of the time it takes me a couple hours at least to get through typing one post, with all the breaks and interruptions. I don't know what it is about the computer but every time I get on it and he is awake, no matter how involved he is in what he's doing, he gives me no peace. It's one of the things he hates me doing for some reason....unless he is on my lap and able to get into things on the desk, play with the keyboard and mouse, or play with my phone (which usually ends up in some random call to a family member or a $5.00 charge from him getting on the Internet).

So, anyway...I decided early yesterday morning to start a new trend: NO MORE BINKY! I have realized, especially lately, how Sam is way too old for his binky and way too dependant on it (actually quite obsessed, really) and the longer I keep putting it off, like I have been doing for a long time now (I have been DREADING the long nights of crying, etc.), the harder it will be. So I realized I need to take advantage of the fact that he has been happy and healthy and start now, because there's no better time. Besides, I want him to be completely rid of it by the time we go to Colorado in two weeks.

Well, I have set myself up for a miserable next few days/week (however long it will take) because of how attached to it he is, but his first day yesterday without it went surprisingly well! He went throughout the entire day not even noticing it was gone, except when it came to nap time. He cried when I put him down without it (this was the first time I have put him down without his binky EVER!) but only for like less than a minute and then went right to sleep and slept his normal nap.

During the day yesterday he only asked for it once and it was right after his nap (he likes the comfort of it when he wakes up) so I just said, "Your binky is all gone, and that's the way it's going to be for a while." When he desperately said, "binky" one more time I distracted him by saying we were going to go play at the park and he immediately cheered up and said, "park, play!"
(That was fun by the way...all he does at the park now is play with the sand so I found sand in all his crevises last night and he has sand imbedded in his scalp that I can't seem to get out)

So I was pleasantly surprised and it made me realize how much I have been to blame for his binky addiction. Not giving it to him or even mentioning it throughout the day and seeing how he didn't even barely notice made me realize that I am the one that's always giving it to him and showing it!! Out of sight, out of mind, I guess.

Then when it was time for bed time he asked for it again a couple times (it would normally be unheard of to put him to bed at night without it!) so when I took him to his room we said a prayer, I gave him a pep talk, and when I left he didn't even make a single peep!!!! He went right to sleep without a sound, which completely surprised me. However, I have noticed lately that when he has a hard time going to sleep at night it's when I turn off the hall light and he can see that it's dark under the crack of his door, so to help him out I left the hall light on until he was asleep so that he would have some comfort his first night without his binky.

Well, I didn't expect the rest of the night to go as easily, and I was right. He usually (lately) has been waking up in the middle of the night crying his head off, especially if he can't find his binky (I'm not sure if he has nightmares or gets scared, or what), so I knew it would be difficult. About 2 a.m. he woke up crying his head off as usual, so I went in and gave him a pep talk and tried to soothe, all the while his crying desperately, "binky! binky!" and put him back in bed. We listened to him cry for about 10 minutes, though it wasn't the horrible scream crying, and he finally fell asleep. Apparently he wasn't asleep enough because about five minutes later the heater in our house turned off, leaving it completely silent, and he woke up. This time, he did do the scream crying which we love so much. I let it go on for about 20 minutes and felt horrible because I know it's hard for him and he was screaming "mama, mama!" so figured I needed to go in and comfort him again. So I did (same routine as before) but this time after I went back to bed we listened to him cry his little blond head off for about another 20-30 minutes (or longer...I don't know) before he finally fell back asleep.

I felt bad for Dave too because he was getting up at 4 a.m. to go hunting with Tyrone, so I think he was a little agitated that I picked that night to be the first. I think he would have been happier with me giving in and giving it to him again so he could sleep. But I didn't and I won't. And I knew Dave would feel differently in the morning when he is awake and it's not the middle of the night. He is not ever the one to stray from something and he totally believes in follow-through. So I know when this spell is over we will both be happy we stuck with it.'s not like he was forced to get up and go hunting...

Anyway, when Sam woke up this morning (at 7 instead of 6....yay!!) he asked for it a couple more times because he likes to sit on the couch with me when he first wakes up, suck on his binky, drink his milk, and watch his shows. So I keep telling him the same thing I have been telling him: that big boys don't have binkies; only babies, and he is not a baby anymore - the binky is all gone! He doesn't like that very much but when it's not the middle of the night he handles it pretty well.

He is so cute...I finally was able to distract him by putting on his Brainy Baby show he loves, and I can hear him counting really loud (yelling, actually) with the TV in the family room. Anyway, back to the that he is awake and the day has started he hasn't asked for it anymore. I think during the day it's going to be much easier than I was thinking. I just think the next few nights (HOPEFULLY not longer!!!) will be a little crazy until he forgets about it completely. And I am willing to deal with it if it means we can take that blasted thing out of our lives completely! No more always wondering where it is and trying to find an extra and making sure we have it everywhere we go (again, my fault)! I definitely know what not to do with our next baby now!

The only thing I am a little worried about is how he will be in the car on long trips (like when we drive to Prescott on Monday for my dr. appt.) for the first time without it. But he will live! Well, I am done with that for now. I will keep you all if any of you care. :) I bet that was the longest post about a binky that ever existed! :) I will be posting more posts to follow about other things!

Paramore - "Decode"

Bek had this new Paramore video on her blog from the Twilight movie and it is awesome! I love it! Check it out!

Where Do I Begin?

I have so many emotions inside of me that I don't even really know what to say or where to begin. Frankly, I am so stinking sick of politics and talking about them and arguing about them and hearing about them, but I do just have to voice my opinion at how utterly disappointed I am at who our next president will be.

I know the country is going to have to get much worse before it gets better, and we as members of the church have known it was going to go downhill pretty badly, but it doesn't make it any easier. It doesn't ease my tenseness about raising my children in this world. It scares me to think about the things Obama wants to impliment and the freedoms he will steel from us as citizens and I pray and hope and they don't pass or something, but all night I couldn't help the feeling of dread...the feeling that our country (though it has been stripped of many of it's freedoms already, whether we realized it or not) as we know it will be no more.

Maybe I am being too emotional about it, but I can't help the feelings I feel. I'm not saying that McCain was amazing and that I would have wanted him as our president either but I would have welcomed him over Obama! Okay, I am done ranting and raving about that. *sigh*

We just need to try and stay positive and be prayerful that no matter what's going on in the world around us, we can raise our children properly and have some sort of protection given us from Heavenly Father! We will see what happenes come January and the following years. Oh, and trcik-or-treating on Halloween was awesome but I will wait and post about it at the same time I can post the couple pictures!
