Whats the weather like in your backyard???
The last few days has been so beautiful I decided I needed to post a picture and brag about our weather here in Oregon (While it isnt raining) It has been so warm the last couple days. I looked at our thermometer today after work and it read 67 degrees. Rick has been falling asleep with our bedroom window open this week, We have been falling asleep to the sound of the birds chirping out side in our "backyard forest" (pictured below). This is something I will really miss when we do move back to Idaho. Last spring and summer (and pretty much all year around) I was able to open my window at night and listen to birds, or the rain dripping off the trees, or just the breeze blowing through our trees. I love it! I looked forward to it every night! So while I did miss the snow this year... I still feel very lucky after all.

While we were shopping last weekend Rick bought this book of Baby names. We havent been able to agree on anything as of yet. I have been trying to talk him into the name Tayva and I think that he is just starting to get used to the idea, but now I am getting to where I dont like it so much. There are a few other names that we have liked. But I wanted to hear some ideas from you??? So leave a comment if you have a name that you want to suggest. Lets have some fun with this shall we?

When I was waiting to get Bella settled in the salon I looked over and this is what I saw. It was so cute I had to take a picture of it.

Bella went and got her hair cut this weekend.

Bella's Before

Bella After:

Isabella is getting so grown up she has been wanting to get her hair cut now for a few weeks. I finally made her an appointment at the mall on Sat. night. She is getting so grown up. I tried to suggest a few hairstyles when we were looking through the magazines at the salon and she didnt like any of my suggestions she found one all on her own. She didnt need me to stand in the salon with her. As a matter of fact I think she almost preferred me not staying in their with her.
She knew that she didnt want them to cut very much off. Well I guess it is time to face it my little girl is growing up.

Had a one and a half month old baby (Isabella) and loving on her as much as possible.

Things on my to-do list today:
Get kids up and on bus, go to work, Call the School, Help Ashlynn do Valentines for her class, do laundry, attempt to beat my record playing baseball on the Wii, go to dinner with my family, grocery shop, and come home and have movie night and dessert with the family.

What I would do if I were suddenly made a billionaire:
Buy a couple houses at different places where I want to live. Pay off my parents and Rick parents homes. Take my parents and my family to Italy, Take Ricks parents to Alaska and family. Oh the list would go on and on.....

3 of my bad habits:
Being impatient
eating one huge meal a day and then not eating (or just eating junk the rest of the day).
not cooking for my family as much as I should
wow this list could go on and on too.... LOL

Jackson WY.
Rathdrum Idaho (North Idaho)
Portland OR.

5 jobs that I have had:
Village Inn, Jackson

5 Things people don't know about me:

One of my biggest fears is saying prayers or giving talks at church. I have actually went home sick from church because I was asked to give a prayer in Sacrament.

I look forward to moving either back to North Idaho or Southern Idaho hopefully in the next year or so.

I suck at all sports, which if any of you have seen me attempt this you know what I am talking about.

I have an illness I would say it is similar to OCD I dont like drinking out of cups, I usually wont eat meals anywhere else but at home and at restaraunts, and I could go on and on... I am working on getting over this. But am not being very succesful.

Rick and I were just called to work in the nursery in our ward.

Its a Girl!!!!!!!!!! This is a picture of her Profile. She wasn't cooperating very well with us. They said everything looks very normal and healthy.... YEAH! Very exciting! After the ultra sound we all went shopping and the girls each got to pick out an outfit for their new baby sister. Maybe I will post a picture of each of their outfit choices. We also went and picked out a bassinet set. Rick is setting the bassinet up as I am writing on the blog (with Ashlynn's help). I will be posting some pics of it all in the next day or two. So check back.
