Our Photo Gallery

If our home was a gallery I would frame these pictures on the wall this week and title them...

"Wrinkly Bling"

(Joy joy, the "Bling" shirt I've been waiting for and never got to wear is here! It's been here...not sure how long...unwittingly wadded up in a teenager's backpack! Guess it can wait until next year to be worn.) 

"Salt in the Wound"

Going to a track meet alone to watch your former running partner win 1st place....and your team mates win 2rd and 3rd while you stand in the background on crutches...salt in the wound.

Being able to suck it up and have the ability to celebrate their win with them that night at a pool party and cake...priceless.

(Taylor is trying to have a sense of humor about the whole thing...his new nickname is "Cripple" and he says next year he'll probably show up in a body cast...)


(I used to laugh at those who read scriptures from their electronic devices during class but now though I will never stop bringing my marked up, well-loved scriptures to church my family has discovered the joys of carrying a 2 oz version of them that slips into their pocket. My i-pod counted as scriptures in Jacob's class on Sunday and he even got a candy bar for bringing his "scriptures" because hardly anyone else did!)


Children were wanting to read "scriptures" during sacrament meeting when I saw typing I took it away...this is what I found on my to-do list...” 

Give Taylor 100 dollars, 
Let Taylor go out with friends whenever he wants to, 
Give Jacob 29.64 dollars, 
Give your Ipod to Taylor,
 Buy Dr. Pepper,
 Buy more Dr. Pepper…”

Nice try. 

"Sudden Death Salad"

Jeff was nice enough to help me cut lots of vegetables for this salad for the next day's baby shower....including jalapeno peppers...he learned....

while cutting jalapeno peppers wear gloves,
cutting peppers without gloves can result in hands with chemical burns on them,
hands with jalapeno oil that are burning will burn any other body parts you touch,
careful what you touch because even showers don't seem to get it off,
submerging your hand in milk only helps while your hand is in milk,
jalapeno burns can make for a long night...

* (no other people were burned in the making or eating of this salad)

"Best Auction Prize I ever Won"

Last year when we were bidding on service opportunities to help fund girls camp for the young women in our ward I bid and won a cake made by one of the young women.  Almost a year later I redeemed my coupon and asked Nicki Bell in our ward to make a cake for the baby shower I was helping with. She did an awesome, impressive, fantastic job! (Now I'm feeling guilty because I think I underpaid what this was worth) Moral of the story "Never underestimate your young women!"

"Brave Woman"

Monica is a sweetheart with 4 beautiful daughters now soon to be added with 2 sons and another daughter. She handles the aches, pains, nervousness, and hunger that comes along with carrying 3 babies with beauty and grace. We were happy to celebrate with her.

"Triple the Babies, Triple the Fun, Triple the Diaper changes when the day is done"

Monica got lots of diapers donated a the diaper drawing..she'll be set for a bit at least. She also got lots of cute clothes.

"Little White Lie"

     Ashley took some pictures of our travels into her school for their “journeys” bulletin board. She was mad about one of the pictures that I put in the stack. 

"MOM why did you put this picture in there! I don't like what I am wearing and I am doing a stupid pose!"

 So I asked her what she did with it. She said she turned it around and hid it. Then when she got to the bottom of the stack and kids asked her what the last one was in her bag she said “Oh it’s just a piece of paper. My mom put it in there to keep the pictures apart” Sure enough she got out of the classroom without showing it to anyone. 

"Paid Volunteer"

Jacob mumbled and grumbled for 3 days about having to go to their Deseret Industries volunteer assignment. Donuts from dad and being able to buy the whole season of Survivor All Stars for $2.00 made him a happy every afternoon I hear the sounds of Survivor wafting down the stairs. 


I got Taylor to school about 10 minutes late after taking him to the Sports Clinic on Monday and when I went to sign him in at the office they barred him from the campus. 

I guess it's illegal to have CRUTCHES on campus. He has to have a doctor's note signed and dated saying he has to use crutches and listing how long he is going to use them. It didn't matter that he wasn't going to use the stairs, it didn't matter that he had been on campus a week already with them. She said it wasn't her fault that the teachers hadn't narked on him like they were supposed to...
No Note....No School, so off to home we went.

One of us was of us was happy.

After 2 1/2 hours of phone calls back and forth to the doctors office and the school we finally had approval to come on campus again. 

Good grief.

"Mini-Mi with her own illegal contraband"
Once it was discovered that a pair of short crutches were in the storage shed left over from Jeff's surgery...someone else "hurt her leg" 
(After a day or two she gave up on them when she realized they weren't as fun as they looked ;)

"Dog Heaven"

We were invited to go on a hike with the Elsworths to Sycamore Canyon. We walked the trails with the dogs off the leash so they could chase squirrels and rabbits, jump on rocks and enjoy the outdoors not being confined by fences. I have to admit I was worried about her running off, being bitten by snakes and other stuff but she did really well and if she ever got too far she always came right back as soon as I called. 

"Aftermath of Dog Heaven"

We sure tired them out. Magnus is now Maddie's best friend and when the Elsworth's clap and call for Magnus...Maddie comes running. 

"Never too Old for Bubbles"

At least on Sunday afternoons, when you can't watch TV, and your bored...your sisters bubbles start not looking too bad...


No more answers on his leg....I drove to the school yesterday to bring him ibuprofen because it was hurting. He had just had an incident where his crutch slipped and he put full weight on his leg and he was in excruciating pain I ended up bringing him home so he could ice it. He said he had never been in that much pain before. 

After icing it he said it receded to the "normal pain"

Another trip to the sports clinic with copies of the x-ray report in tow, they said it's been 10 days and he's not any better "You need to be referred to an orthopedic doctor"  He needs an MRI.

Hmmmm you think

Try telling that to our HMO doctor. 

He has an appointment on Tuesday 
I'll prepare my battle plan

The Roller Coaster of Life

I heard a talk once where the speaker equated life to a train ride. 

I would say life is more like a roller coaster....with an invisible track. 

 Why do highs in life always seem to be followed pretty closely by lows and just when you think things are straightening out you're in for a curve you didn't expect...especially with teenagers in the house...but more on that later. 

Right after my birthday Jeff was preparing for an anticipated fishing trip with work people. It was an overnight boat ride into Mexico to fish for tuna and all sorts of "big ones". He borrowed an assortment of poles, got gear and hats, packed and even made sure to buy some ear plugs in case of snoring. He did research online and was in awe of all the pounds of fish that these boats would pull in on a trip. He prepared me for possibly having hundreds of pounds of fish in the freezer...we talked of inviting people over for a fish fry...and he loaded the car with ice chests to bring them back in. 

Right as he's walking out the door he found out that one of the guys going with them bailed, he offered the spot to Taylor but an hour's notice and a day off school made him pass. So he went with one man down.

The night he had fun hanging out with the guys and putting money in a pot for whoever caught the biggest fish the next morning.

Well the Biggest Catch fantasy was met with reality when only 

one fish was caught

on the whole trip 

and it wasn't by Jeff.

Looked like the guy who won the pot of money had no contest. 

To add insult to injury his camera stopped working at the beginning of the trip 
(these are the only pictures he got)  

The upside was Ashley was very happy that no fish made it home. She hates fish and was lamenting that our house was going to smell like fish when we cooked it. She didn't have to worry. 

I have a good friend who is into eating healthy. She has dropped 10 pounds over the summer and has telling me about these green smoothies that she has incorporated into her diet.  She drinks like 32 ounces for breakfast and all her kids drink like 16 ounces a day. It's full of spinach and fruits, greek yogurt and healthy stuff. I watched her two youngest daughters drink it like it was juice it up.  

Hmmmm...I thought.  I was not too sure about it at first but she had a few of us over to see how to make them and do a few taste tests and I thought it was good enough that I would try it at home. 

So I blended it up and told the kids about it so they could try it. 

They tried it and actually drank some...but only after they added some cool whip  (guess my kids are already ruined from too much sugar).  Taylor took a taste after running but the rest of his ended up down the sink...guess  he's too old to think it's anything like Juice it Up :)

Jeff didn't want anything to do with it.

The rest of was all mine...ALL mine.....

thats a lot of green smoothie

I guess next time I'll have to make a mini version since the rest of the family equates smoothie with the likes of Cold Stone and such.

This last week or so the roller coaster has taken me to one funeral and then curved before I could make it to the other one I've had highs like lunch with a friend and lows like Ashley's $45.00 doctor's appointment that ended up being 2 hours to look in her ears and say "Yep they're fine". I've driven here there and everywhere all over kingdom come to get kids (and their friends) where they need to be...and back again. I've swooped into the 2nd of 3 back to school nights flying into Junior High classes for 10 minutes a pop to get quick impressions of teachers and their expectations and I've had my first sick child of the school year stay home on the day when I was planning to do all my errands.

This night we were at the Stake Center to tie quilts for a humanitarian aid project. 

Ashley came with me because Jacob was at scouts, Taylor was finishing at Cross Country and Jeff was going to bring him later so she would've been alone. 

She got to learn how to quilt that night even though she didn't meet the "12 and up" requirements. I was so proud of her.

She liked it until I flipped over the blanket after about an hour and showed her that all her stitches weren't going through to the other side...then we had to cut them all out and start over again...

just like life huh ;) 

It's funny because the ladies at our quilt were commenting on how the ladies on the quilt next to us got through 3 quilts before we could even get through one. Well they were the white hair veterans and I was the only one who had ever quilted before at our table we were slow going but we at least finished our quilt before the evening was over. 

Saturday we had too many things going on at once so Taylor was sent off on the bus to go to his Cross Country meet in San Diego alone. He didn't really feel like we needed to drive all the way down to see him...they'll be lots of other races he said...

or so he thought....

and so we thought (but more on that later). 

I found out this morning as I was packing his lunch for his long Saturday alone that "he doesn't drink Capri Suns". What?? I've been packing them in his lunch for years. What do you do with them? I ask. "Throw them away" Pictures of quarters being tossed in the lunchroom trash went through my mind. Couldn't he at least give them away? This prompted questioning about every lunch item I was putting in the bag...1/2 of it got left on the counter. :(

Then as we were walking out the door to get him to the bus he asked "where are my trainers". I don't know, where are your trainers that I drove out to Redlands for and cost us $100. He had them last to his bag....

he left them at the school the night before on the grass....

I was hopeful that they would be there this morning

 but no such luck they were long gone, so he wore his old beat up ones that we had to retire last year

Another $100 in the trash :(

Meanwhile while Taylor was in San Diego Jacob was working at the Middle School at his band car wash.  We dropped him off for a shift and then came back to get our cars washed.

Of course the day dawned foggy and cold and the High School was doing a car wash at the same time but that's OK.

When we got there I commented that Jacob looked too dry....hmmm...I know Jacob and this teen would rather be the funny guy then get his hands dirty...or soapy as the case may be.

He said he already dried off.  

"Uh huh" I thought.

He was right, he did some car washing but then he got to stand on the corner and do advertising which dried him off, he even had the teacher confirm this to prove it. (I really believed him)

He had fun and said the morning went fast! 

In the middle of the day Ashley had a birthday party and Jeff and I did errands and made sauce for our ward spaghetti cook off. I always like cooking with Jeff, we've done it more recently then we used to do in the past and its fun to work together.  Just as we were ready to walk out the door we got a text from Taylor that the bus was back from his cross country meet. 

So here's the remains of Taylor's lunch that I packed...don't you love the now rotten banana....included is the ibuprofen I carefully packed and reminded him about because he had shin splints and was complaining about them. On the way home he called and complained about his shins and said he ran slower because of them I asked him about taking his medicine. He said he didn't know where it was (I told him like 3 times it was in his lunch). I told him that he could take his pills right then but when he got home they were all right there in the baggie just like I left them and of course his shins still hurt. 

This last Monday we got to have my aunt and uncle Larry and Renae come over for dinner. They were in town from Las Vegas taking a little mini-vacation. It was fun to see them and we got to hear all about their son who is a Senior and an artist, their other son on a mission and Larry's experiences as a driving instructor. It was nice to visit with them. 

As we were in the middle of dinner it was time to pick up Taylor from Cross Country Practice...

I got there and he couldn't walk.  5 miles into his run he pulled something in the back of his leg. He heard popping noises and couldn't step on his leg without a lot of pain. Coach made him run back to the school and then when got there he couldn't walk afterwards.  Larry and Jeff gave him a blessing but the next morning he woke up in more pain so off to the doctors we went. Luckily Jeff stepped in and did all the school drop offs for me and brought the food I was supposed to bring to the funeral over to Kristen Paiges' to take (good thing because I never made it back until the funeral was over).

After 5 hours of sports clinic, pediatrician, x-rays and such we found out....

They pretty much ruled out a stress fracture (though it doesn't really show up on an initial x-ray) and the only thing the pediatrician said "Don't hurt it more, use crutches and come back in 2 weeks" 

Frustrated at his lack of concern I asked what it could be. "I don't know, maybe a torn ligament" as he walked out the door. 

So a lot of pain literally and figuratively and no answers.

As I was sitting in waiting room after waiting room that day I thought of

deja vu for the 3rd time (just get into a season to be out the rest of it on injury)

I just bought my cross country "bling shirt" where do I wear it now??

I volunteered to sit on the cross country booster club committee....all year guess I'll be going alone

I think it's pretty altruistic of us to help fund the cross country and track programs, pay bus fees and fundraising fees, buy uniforms, shoes and racing flats, gear and paraphernalia and then not participate....such a warm fuzzy feeling that we're helping the economy that way.

Seriously I'm just sad for Taylor. If it's a rollercoaster for me I can only imagine what it feels like for him. He's sitting on the sidelines at todays league meet with the kid who broke his toe and can't run.  Someone opened a door on it and he's out for 6 weeks. They are looking forward to sitting in misery together. 

I told Taylor at least he wasn't out for something as silly as a broken pinky toe. He then said "I would rather be out on something silly rather than something that could be serious"

Good point.

Sorry Taylor

One year older and wiser too....

This week I was doing my normal house stuff and I heard some noises from the chinchilla cage...hmmmm

I go to check on them and I find more BABIES!


I guess Chimi had a back to back litter of babies! 

Immediately I started putting the netting around the cage again so they didn't all escape. Then I separated the boys from her (the baby from the last litter is getting old enough to mate too)!

I looked once and saw this guy nursing,

I looked again and saw this guy sleeping in the cup of hay.

These guys looked like twins, small and wiry running all through the cage just a couple of hours old.

There was one last chinchilla in the box house.

It was big and cute but very sleepy. We pulled it out and it didn't squirm it just sat there and kept going back to sleep. I figured it was tired after being born but I noticed it wasn't nursing and kept sleeping. Its breathing looked labored and I warned the kids it might not last through the night.

We thought maybe the other two were too aggressive and I even tried hand feeding it but it wasn't even interested in swallowing. I could tell that it was getting weaker by the hour and probably had something wrong that we couldn't help. I felt bad for momma because I saw her nudge her baby and try and nurse right next to it but it wouldn't even turn around and try. She was trying her hardest but there wasn't any more she could do.

(Reminded me of us mommas that try to nourish our kids spiritually and intellectually but sometimes they are unable or unwilling to take it and there really isn't much we can do about it)

Taylor and Ashley and I held it and pet it while we could but it didn't last through the night. :(

This week I also had a birthday.... hopefully one year older equals one year wiser....I should be getting pretty wise now.

The day started out like any other including homework that didn't get done the night before...

and a trip to the school to stock the nurses office with Taylor's medicine and bring him what he was supposed to wear for spirit day...a shirt and tie with his super short cross country shorts.

He was too chicken to wear the shirt and tie (of course he wore the shorts no problem) ...until he got to the school and he was the only one NOT a shirt and tie.

Peer pressure reigned and mom was called upon to rescue...(I already had to go down there anyway)

I got this in the mail from my mother-in-law and I can't wait until the year is over and I can use it!

Perfect with stickers representing most of my daily routine that I can just put on the calendar and everything is split up between family member. Perfect for us!! (She must be a mind reader)

Then I got an unexpected visit from Mary Ann bearing gifts of chocolate, a balloon and a purse better than anything I own or would imagine to own...very cute and the perfect size!

I think she's been eyeballing my scruffy looking wallmart special and thinking about me ;)

Thanks for elevating me from crappy to classy ;)

Ana Merrill my neighbor and person I visit teach never forgets my birthday because I never forget hers (which is right after mine)...what a sweetie.

As I did housework that day I got a calls from friends and lots of facebook wishes, housework flew and didn't seem like drudgery...

Then Jeff got home and we got the kids pizza and he gave me a present from him and the kids. An i-pod! Yeah, it was a replacement for the two that we strongly suspect got picked up by the thief that came through our house a couple months ago.

Thank you honey...I'm hoping it will keep me working out longer :)

The night was capped off with dinner at Duanes at the Mission Inn.

Very good food!

We were trying for a movie but it got too late and we are too old and tired now days for a late late movie. (I had to be up at 5:20 to get Taylor to his Xcountry bus the next morning)

Bright and early I brought Taylor to the bus and then went back home to bed for a bit before we got up to drive Jacob and friend to his merit badge clinic and then drive out to Cerritos to see Taylor run.

We got there 1/2 hour before Taylor was supposed to race...good thing because they switched the times and Taylor was running just as we walked up! Jeff had just enough time to pat him on the leg and let him know that we were there.

The weather was much cooler than it has been lately. Great for some of the runners...but for the others they got hit with a huge rainstorm (happened right before we got there)

Go Taylor....come on Taylor!!!

He ended up finishing in 17:58 breaking 18 minutes which was better than he had done before.

Here's a group of his sophomore teammates but where is Taylor???

I was enjoying talking to the other moms....but where is Taylor????

I guess he was in the bathroom "cleaning up"

So a lot of times he'll run and feel sicky after well this time he actually got sick. Right as they were lining them up after he passed the finish line. They have to stay in order to get their place and he was losing his breakfast while trying to walk through the line.

I said "what place did you get?"

"45th but they said I got guy passed me up while I was throwing up."


Well Taylor got a medal (the top 60 or so get them)  We were so proud of him.

He was excited too...until he realized he has to do it all again next Saturday :)

The bad thing was finding these stinky, wet, muddy, grassy running flats in his bag two days later.


I rinsed them out and had to keep the window open for two days trying to dry them out. Blah!

Back to School...

Why does it always feel like when the kids go back to school...I'm back at school.

Could it be all the homework I have now

filling out emergency cards,
buying lists of supplies,
the to do's 
keeping everyone on a schedule.

My exercising with Cindy has been pushed to 5:10 in the morning that is on the days that we don't have piano (first lesson starts at 5:30) or she isn't teaching preschool. Days are packed now starting at anywhere from 4:55 to 5:30...and all those projects I vowed to do when the kids were back in school...get started...then it's time to pick someone up, get them started on homework, sit down for hours trying to keep one from getting distracted while doing homework, make dinner before back to school night/parent meeting/booster club meeting/mutual/family night/cross country practice...take your pick.

So "my" projects sit in little piles around the house waiting to be finished...someday.

I can't believe we used to throw soccer and dance in there too.

I should've known when on the first day of getting the kids to school I came back to this....I think there is some Murphy's law that states that a mom's "free time" is never free for long...

pretty much foreshadowing life as I know it :)

This last week was Pack Meeting for the boys. Jacob got his 2nd Class and is on his way up the ranks to work his way to Eagle someday as well.

So proud of him :)

Taylor was running with his Cross country team so he had to be picked up and made the last 10 minutes to get his awards. He earned his Varsity letter and some pins. Loved their pose :)

This last week I was preparing for my 20th High school Reunion!  Wow 20 years already!

I missed my 10 year so I was excited to go and see friends that I haven't seen since high school (I'm not the best at keeping in contact with people)

I pulled out some old pictures for the slide show and since I didn't have a scanner...I took a picture of them.

This is graduation day. 2 of these guys were at the reunion and 2 I was looking forward to seeing but they couldn't make it. Thank goodness for facebook. I've been able to connect with a few of the people I lost contact with, and my old yearbooks helped me brush up on some of the names of people that were there.

Then I realized I should put all my "pre-digital" pictures on the computer. They are getting faded and will one day be falling apart. So I started taking lots of pictures of pictures.

Here's me and my dad back in his mustache days.

17 years later.

Just to warn sisters and friends I will be posting some old, potentially embarrassing photos of our younger years on we can all share in the memories of our big hair and crazy clothing styles.

I found myself in this shirt with the mismatched sized buttons in multiple pictures...obviously it was a favorite. Virginia was wearing it in some pictures it was a favorite for both of us. I guess do remember some clothes sharing going on and some fights about it. 

Anyway brought up some fun memories of growing up.

On Friday we went to the King vs. Ramona football game. It was the first football game of the season and since we were really there to hang out with cousins we sat on the Ramona side.

We got stopped by a Ramona high school employee telling us when we were walking in that we were on the wrong side...I had no idea how they knew which side we belonged on...but we had to explain why we were on the Ramona side.

You can see the paltry smattering of fans in the background. Not a lot of King people there...good thing because we kind of got slaughtered. We got to hear every cheer quite loudly.

But, we were still glad to hang out with family.

Saturday was my reunion.

Jeff was a good sport and said "Stay as long as you want, it's your night and we'll do whatever you want"

It was nice to see old friends like Shelley who I pretty much haven't seen since our wedding. She flew all the way from Virginia and lives 10 minutes from my mom and dad, so I'll come visit her next time we're out that way.

This guy was Sergio and actually approached Jeff first. He remembered him from Jeff selling his family life insurance! So Jeff started talking to him and then he recognized me.

We both didn't remember where we knew each other from though...until we figured out it was art class and art club.  I was pretty pathetic that way.  There was someone else sitting on the other side of me I remembered I knew him and vice versa but we didn't remember what from. I realized later I had a picture of him and his now wife going to prom together.

It was nice to go but it would've been nicer to have more of the people that I used to know come. It felt like a lot of the people that I was excited to see again kept posting on the website that they couldn't make it. Well theres always next time.

In the mean time maybe they'll appreciate me posting some old prom pictures of them...hee hee hee.

This weekend we decided last minute to escape blazing hot Riverside (our air conditioning running all day can't get our house under 80) to go stay down by the beach.

We drove down in the evening and went to take a walk along the pier.

They had a "don't drink and drive" display set up complete with a car that had been wrapped around a pole by a drunk drive. A visual lesson of how NOT to drive Taylor.

Seal beach pier...hence the statue of the seal.

We caught the sunset just right.

Getting a family picture with the sun behind???....

Or the sun in front???....maybe behind was better.

Shows how much of a photographer we are.

Jeff makes it a habit to talk to the fishermen while we walk along the pier. We always take a peek at what they've caught for the day...this one let us hold their catch.

Nice and slimy (Jacob refused to touch it)

Here's the sun as it's making it's last dip in the sky.

Watching it makes you realize how fast the earth is really spinning.

The next day we had planned to go to the beach but it was raining off and on :(

So we let the kids swim and then decided to go to the Long Beach Aquarium. 

They said this pool was too cold.

And this pool was too they jumped back and forth the whole time.

We headed to the Long Beach Aquarium.

They had a new feature to touch jellyfish....what??!!

Touching Jellyfish???!!

Yeah I guess these guys have stingers too small to sting through our skin. Very cool.

The seal show...super crowded...only saw part of it from the side...

Touching the sting rays...well Taylor touching the sting rays and everyone else trying to reach them in the tank. We were here for a long time but Taylor was the only one with any luck.

Everyone could touch the Lorikeets though.

Since it was late in the afternoon and hot they weren't as interested in the nectar and we had to come to them more. Jacob even got bit a couple times on the arm when he was trying to give a bird some nectar, I told him obviously the bird wasn't interested :)

We are a cheapy family and keep switching around the one cup of nectar we bought...when we switched cups this guy climbed on Ashley's shoulder...she wasn't too sure about that.

OK get him off of me!

My favorite was watching them taking baths in these tubs of water...then they would fly over us and get us wet. (you can see him shaking off the water)

After awhile since it was labor day the place was getting very crowded and claustrophobic so we were done for the day. (Jacob was done after the second tank and kept sitting on the floor saying "When you've seen one fish you've seen them all")

I think the kids had more fun on the rides outside...we could've saved a lot of money.

On a whim we let Taylor try this gyroscope looking thingy.

It flipped all around, and back, and over,

He loved it!

Jeff tried it too....just to say he did it but didn't last as long.

Ashley was brave and wanted to try the bungee jumping one.

She's always too small to go on all the rides and stuff the other kids can go on so she was thrilled that there wasn't a height requirement for this.

Whoo hoo...she jumped high and loved it!

After seeing Ashley Jacob wasn't about to be outdone...but he said NO FLIPS.

Whooo Hooo

Ok now back to real life. There was ONE project I got done this shower invitations for the Bullock triplets.

I was trying to think of something to use for baby faces to represent the triplets...I ended up finding pasta :)

Ha ha I love finding creative uses for everyday household things!
