I can't believe that I forgot to write about our exciting Friday night! Last Friday night we were just hanging out at home, my mom and dad had called and they were going to come over and visit. So when the doorbell rings I think that it is them and I am telling Tanner "O guess who is here! O Nana and Grandpa are here! yada yada yada" I open the front door with Tanner and guess who it is? Not Nana and is our friendly police officer Mike Miller wanting to make sure everything is okay!!! Apparently someone (TANNER) had called 911 and then left the phone off the hook and the dispatcher could not get a hold of us to make sure everything was alright!! Talk about embarrassing!! The joys of a toddler :0)

Good day/Bad day

How do you ruin a great day and the potential for a great week? I have the answer... Yesterday was a great day. I woke up, got in my workout, dropped Tanner off and he was actually happy when I left, and I got a ton of stuff done at work. I came home made dinner and we actually sat at the kitchen table to eat it. Mike played with Tanner while I cleaned up, then we actually did the whole bedtime thing... story, brush teeth, etc.... and Tanner goes down great. It is just a little before 8 p.m. Mike goes to check cows and I am thinking to myself (and this is the truth) "What a great day, look at everything I have done... the house is clean, all the laundry is folded! Man, maybe just maybe I can keep it together this week " Ha ha ha The phone rings and guess who it is??? O yes it is the Bishop wanting to know if Mike and I would speak in church on Sunday!! Ahhhhhh Talk about ruin my good day :0(
The moral of the story: When you think that life is going good and you have got it in control the Lord likes to humble you and make you stretch :0)

P.S. If anyone has any ideas, stories, poems etc... on testimonies feel free to share!!!

Sunshine...Blessed Sunshine!!

We had such an amazing day yesterday!! We woke up to blue sky's and sunshine. I got Tanner dressed put on his shoes and we headed outside. I think the poor kid was in shock!! I put him down on the grass and he just looked at me (with very squinted eyes because the sun was so bright) like really mom you are going to let me walk on my own outside. It took him a few minutes to warm up to the idea of being outside, but he loved it!! I pulled him around in his wagon, we rode the four-wheeler down to see Mike and the cows, we played with the puppy and swept out the garage.
I wish my camera wasn't broken (hopefully I get a new one for my birthday:0) For some reason Tanner liked crawling in the dirt better than walking so by the end of the day he was soooo dirty!! It would have been a great picture!
So, it is a official we are hooked on sunshine and can't wait to get back outside!!!

Easter (Better late then never)

I know Easter was a couple weeks ago but I thought I would share anyway!!
Tanner was sick Easter weekend but we still had fun hiding eggs for him. It took a few minutes for him to catch on, but after shaking one of the eggs and M&M's going everywhere (silly mom forgot to tape them shut!!) He was on the run looking for more eggs!

I think that having a little one definitely makes the Holidays a lot funner!!

Okay, so after two very enjoyable months of being a blog stalker I have succumb to the peer pressure and have started our family's blog. I will warn you right now we are quiet boring and very computer illiterate. So, bear with us as we begin our blogging adventures!!
