Famous Author


My sister in-law is going to be a regular blog contributor. Her first article brought tears to my eyes. It was very touching and I look forward to reading her column regularly. You can check it out at Better Way Moms.

Young Update

So things have been a bit crazy around here as we have welcomed our new little boy Jack into the family! I am working on a post with pictures so stay tuned in! Today, Rachel got to go show off her riding skills for Spanish Fork TV's outdoor show which is featuring the Utah Ponies of America Club. Ruthie went with her and first prepared her own breakfast which consisted of 2 carrots and 2 chicken dinosaurs (sick). Bekah told me she needs to get some more fashion clothes because there is nothing in her closet that she wants to wear. Jack is in his suntanning bed; hopefully, for the last day as his jaundice count is on the way down!

At 2 am it all makes sense

Last night, around 1:30 am I woke with some contractions. I decided to do some yoga breathing and positions on the floor in the dark to relax. I remembered a couple of years ago doing yoga in the middle of the night. I was really stressed out and took a shower to relax my muscles. I have a rod in my back for scoliosis and yoga helps me a lot. After the shower, I tried to release the trigger points in my shoulders by doing the plow position. It felt really good and I stayed there quite a long time. So long, that I couldn't get my feet to come down from back behind my head. I was stuck in the plow position and I thought at that moment how it might have been a good idea to get dressed after the shower in case the paramedics have to come rescue me stuck, dying in a contortion. I finally was able to release the position and laid their with my back spasming for a very long time.

That was the last of my late night yoga sessions until last night. With this giant baby in my belly, plow position was way out the range of possible positions, so I was relatively safe. As I practiced breathing in childs pose my mind wandered to my dream which had Greg Kinnear pointing. What was he pointing at? So disturbing, because why is he even in my dream. I couldn't resolve the question. The name mericek keeps coming to me, but when I google it I can't find anything. I love to go to dream moods.com to interpret my dreams which you shouldn't read too much into but I find very interesting.

I wondered if Jason realized I was laying on the floor for two hours and hoped that he would wake up and walk past me so that I could grab his feet from under the bed reinacting a scene from a horror movie. I love to hide and scare him. This would have been the ultimate. Alas, he did not wake and I calmed myself enough to return to bed.

Birthday Party for Bekah

Ruthie Dancer

Our littlest daughter tried out for dance team and this was the cute routine they taught her in 2 days and she performed for the audition. It is hysterically cute and I can't wait to see her other routines this year when she gets more time to learn them. Her and Rachel lug the strawberry shortcake boombox around the house making up dances and performing them. Bekah is collecting lady bugs.
