It's the Most wonderful Time of the Year!!

I would like you to picture that post title being sung in your best Bing Crosby voice :) Well, the Holidays are here and am I ready........"No".... is it December 25th yet? No, So I like to live by the seat of my pants and venture out into the crowds risk catching who knows what and get that rush! No not really my car is on the "kaputs" right now so the Boys and me mostly are hanging at home, staying warm :) And I am definitely one of the people who if there wasn't a deadline nothing would get done!

We were ahead of the curve for ourselves this year and got Family pictures taken for Christmas cards and don't ask if their mailed out yet cuz' well you already know the answer to that! We took them the day before the big snow so it was a whoppin' 14 degrees outside--I'm grateful for photo editing because all of us had issues w/ our noses running. The boys did really good considering they have no attention span and we were in a new place they wanted to explore! And I think my friend Becky did a great job of the center of attention being my huge belly!

I'm 28 weeks along and all in all feeling good! Almost time to break down and get some ugly prego pants...Both of the boys are Summer birthdays so I have zero "winter" pregnant clothes and really...who wants to invest in something you can only wear for the next three months! Heartburn is here in full throttle. But I remind myself I would rather have that than the morning sickness from the first 4 1/2 months :) Baby boy Gardner is very active and soon I'm sure I'll be experiencing the "alien hand" visibly moving across my belly when I'm in the tub! I

I would like to wish my Family, Friends, Neighbors a very Happy Holiday Season! I Love you all and hope your Holiday is one of good food,great health, laughter, answered prayers :)

Playing catch up and some Big News!

Wow I just saw I haven't been on here since July 1st!! Crazy well lots has happened since then--Dax had a moment of insanity and broke our camera so thank goodness for Dayton's blackberry and its decent picture taking abilities. We had a great summer of being outdoors and good ol' seven peaks it only took Cam half the summer and he finally got brave enough to follow his "fish" of a brother around! I spent the last part of summer pretty sick......Don't worry no swine flu here just the first trimester of pregnancy which in my case I kinda want to crawl in a hole and pray I fall into a deep sleep til' about 16 weeks and emerge a normal, non-nauseous wife and mother :) We found out about a week ago we are going to have a BOY!!! So now the hard part is coming up with a name Dayton and me agree on......Hmm, more on that later- We are going to fast-forward to Halloween! Which at our house we absolutely love :) Cameron was as his loving father called him "count-dorkula" and Dax was "Skele-turd"--otherwise known as DRacula and a Skeleton-- Dayton is a crazy pumpkin craving fool, if he could make a living at it he would in a heartbeat! He carved me a special Michael Jackson tribute pumpkin as you will see below, i absolutely loved it!! Dayton and me dressed full-out but forgot to get pictures...I know my plan is to get a nice camera for Christmas :) I really plan on making blogging part of my routine again for I love those of you who are dedicated!! We leave this Saturday for a trip to Arizona and on to Disneyland!!! We are so excited to have break from life and spend some time all together in our favorite place-So I'll have pics up in a couple weeks-- :)

More Disneyland photos

I know I'm weird to put this on here but.......

What can I say I'm a child of the 80's.......He was a musical genius to me---I made all my cousins watch the VHS cassette of the "The Making of Michael Jackson's THRILLER" like a thousand times ( Lizzie,Alli and any of the Fordham's can vouch for this!) It is what got me interested in Special Effects Make-up--( My dream job) and when we went to Disneyland we went on Captain EO every showing possible ( Julia, Ben and Cyd can confirm this) I know he lead a controversial life but just remember This guy invented the Moonwalk!!! What!! I want to get penny-loafers right now!! All I know is he was a huge part of my childhood and I will always love his music-- He really was the Elvis of our time--

I LOVE MY SON........................

The criminal at large..................He may look cute and innocent but behind the facade lurks a sneaky little rascal who in 45 seconds can do some serious damage that rivals the Hulk
It was one of those moments where you are thinking where in the h*ll did he find the biggest sharpie marker the company produces.....oh yeah I thought he couldn't get into the child proof drawers....I'm seeking legal cosultation the package said "child-proof"--

Disney and more......

possibly Dax's favorite ride!!
Giving a high-five after riding Roger-rabbit

Cam being obeident and trying to lift the bar..Dax looked at it and rolled his eyes

Some of the family..The cute blonde in front is Grannie Robin ( yeah, Dayton's Mom)

Dayton got this picture with our slow stupid camera...I don't know how either

Disneyland was pretty awesome! The only sad part was the couple days before both boys went in to the doctor to get antibiotics to treat a double ear infection for the big guy and Cam lucked out with just having a single-- Dax totally gets Disneyland, He pretty much has his own itinerary ( how the crap do you spell that word) for us as what rides we need to ride next and spotting the cotton-candy sellers and pretty much leading the pack! The boys rode everything they could, Pirates, Haunted Mansion, Jungle Cruise etc. Dax is big enough to ride Matterhorn and is almost there to ride the next height requirement!! Dayton can't wait :) The boys had a blast with there cousins Dade 10 and Tayen who is almost 7 ,they were so awesome to my boys! We miss them so much already! The weather was awesome especially since we heard Utah was cold and rainy as usual!! Getting home was good we really missed our Doggie Emmy and there's no place like home! ( to sleep that is.......I missed my bed and my boys sleeping in their own room)

Forgive me, I have been a serious slacker......

Cameron and ice-cream don't really get along
This is Dax's idea of a good time

HI my friends and family!

Well, with going back to work full time I haven't quite mastered everything :) I have pretty much been treading water...But at last I little break, We were suppose to head down to San Carlos, Mexico with all the Gardner's on Friday. But as you could guess......They closed the border due to the ragging Swine flu ( icky icky,yuck yuck)-- So got the call from Dayton's Mom!!! We are headed to the happiest place on earth...DISNEYLAND!! I am so excited I had to change my pants!! So Cali here we come :)

Besides the vacation news Yesterday was my Husband's 31st birthday!!! So I just want to tell him I love him and after almost 9 years together I need him more than ever!! I feel bad we didn't really get to celebrate--( you know how when you go on vacation you work like 8-9 days in a row..that is me)-- So we plan on celebrating w/ everyone in Arizona!!

A little update on the rascals-- They are pretty cute just getting big!! And energy for days....and days and well you all know what I'm talking about--I just need the weather to stay nice for at least 3 days in a row-- We are huge on going to the park or on walks to wear ourselves out!!!!**Nap time!! Hello**

I promise to post about our trip in a a week or so!!

Hey Everyone!

I'm sorry life has gotten a little crazy and now it's starting to keep pace and I may include "blogging" back to my weekly hobbies :) I started back to work fulltime...first at AT&T and well long story short it wasn't for me--I was working at the computer all day, doing inventory, paperwork---No customer service which at first I was like "Yes!!!I hate the public, I am sick and tired of helping people"...I am a big ol' liar, I love people, I am what they call a "people-person"-- SO I left AT&T gracefully to become the Asst. Manager at the jewelry store and I am feeling a whole lot better about everything and with the Boys this schedule is perfect--I am with them til they go down for their nap at 1pm--then Dayton and I do the switch-er-roo and I'm off. We are gearing up for a romantic Valentines Weekend-- Dayton is taking the Boys and myself to MONSTER TRUCKS at the Delta center on Saturday :) And I know you are wondering why I capitalized MONSTER have to..... it's shows how freakin' awesome they are :)
Here is the Santa pics from Christmas......As you can see Dax was like "h*ll no who is this man" and Cam was like" HI i'm Cameron, I like everyone"

Please Officer! I'm innocent, I swear.....
Well... I told you I would get back to everyone with what this Holiday season brought with it and it wasn't all present and Ho-ho-ho :) I was hired by AT&T the beginning of November but wasn't starting til December 7th--We went to AZ for Caitie and Nate's Wedding which was the day before Turkey Day).I got a call that sure shook things up--The Human Resources lady called me to inform me I didn't pass my background check for the job.....Very confused I asked well what didn't I pass.....Well,Ma'am you have a criminal record...WHAT! I don't have a criminal record.....I'm sorry but I show here you have 3 felonies and 4 misdemeanors for Theft and car robbery.....I ask if one of my Bro-n-laws called her and put her up to this...No Ma'am, I'm not kidding......Anyway long story short, Someone who I know stole my Driver's License about 6 years ago ( in March) and committed these crimes then when they where caught they gave them My ID and SS number......And it also had turned into a warrant since I missed my court appearance back in April 2003 ( How could I be so careless)- So yes...all of you have been associating with a criminal---Well,now with the help of Dayton's Uncle who is an attorney the charges have been dropped the warrant has been released as of December 20th-- And now AT&T has restarted their background check! So Now that I have experienced Identity Theft for myself I can surely say It's not my favorite :)
