Life as of late....

It's been a long time since I've posted anything, mostly because there hasn't been much to post about. I'm about 7 weeks into school this semester and it's hard to believe that it's already midterms. Classes are fun and challenging and definitely keep my busy. The second round of biggest loser has also started. In round one I lost 40 lbs in 3 months. I couldn't be happier, but losing weight this time around seems to be a bigger challenge. Hopefully I can make my goal of 20 lbs before thanksgiving. I'm already down 5 or 6 and have about 6 weeks to lose the rest. Wish me luck! I think after this round I'll take some pictures for everyone to see and try and find some old pictures that show the "transformation" better lol. Oh, and I also got a new church calling. I'm the new relief society secretary.

Here's a little update of everyone else around here....

Bryan: Still working at JUB. Doing a lot of outside renovations in the backyard. Preparing to put a cement slab on the side of the house and building a minature baseball/whiffle ball field in the backyard. He's also playing in a mens flag football league and also a basketball league.

Rachel: Still working as an attorny and young womens keeps her busy. Always helping out with Bryan's outside ventures. And keeping up with 3 little munchkins. Also doing biggest loser so her and I always seem to be exercising and unable to eat the food we really WANT to eat lol

Brent: Still works at the raquet club. About ready to have his final interview with the stake president to send in his mission papers. He's still terrified, but I think secretly excited too. Keep everyone updated as too when he gets his call!

Jace: Started kindergarten this year. He loves it and is learning a lot about the alphabet and letter-sound relationships. Playing YMCA flag football and as usual, loves playing with his brother and cousins.

Joshua: Joshua is having a hard time adjusting to mornings without his brother around. He really finds me boring (I don't blame him). Also is playing flag football on the same team as Jace and is super excited about the baseball field slowly forming in the backyard.

Jackson: Jackson is now 9 months old and I can't believe how big he's getting. He's crawling everywhere and loves to stand up and walk while holding onto things. He's getting better at keeping his balance while standing up and it wouldn't surprise me in the least bit if he starts walking within the next month. We've also been working on words. He says mama (kind of lol)....its more like mamamamamamama when he's babbling....but close enough.

I've really been lacking on pictures the last few months...I'll try and do better and get some recent ones up soon...much love to everyone!

Yummy Yummy Cookies

So for the last week or so I've been promising the boys that we would decorate Christmas cookies, so on Monday I figured I'd be good on that promise and spent a few hours that afternoon making the tree, snowmen, gingerbread men, and star shaped sugar cookies. I'm definitely NOT a baker, but everyone says they tasted pretty good so that must say something, right? Well the boys went to the movie Bolt with another of their aunts and so we decided that we'd decorate them that night with the rest of the family. I think everyone had a good time, so here's some pictures of the finished products.
