What a week!

This week has been so hectic and busy. I have been working like crazy doing Graveyards at the Ranch, training, working my other job and last but not least trying to be a decent mother. Lately i have felt like i needed a change in my workout routines because being so busy i haven't had the time or the energy you see usually i just do Zumba a few times a week but now i am getting a little sick of it, the same place same routines same music....i need some variety. I think i am going to take the plunge and get a Gold's Gym pass. I know that they screw you over alot of the time i mean they have already done that to me once but honestly they seem like my best bet. They offer lots of classes at all different times and i like the fact that i can go workout whenever i have a chance, it'll be on my schedule ya know. For now i am taking a break from Zumba but  i am doing a spinning class 2 times a week and running the track on the other days. I haven't ran in forever but it is a good change. We go to the High School for these classes and the track and let me tell ya nothing has changed the track is still so white trash and dirty it totally brings back so many awesome High School memories. Oh those were the days. Anyway, i really am looking forward to this weekend and hopefully i will have a gym pass by this time next week.
As for the kids they are awesome as usual. Jaycie has such a little attitude now and she is talking like crazy. She has been off the binkie for about 3 weeks now but still has it at nighttime, hey that thing is a lifesaver DON'T JUDGE ME! Jacoby seems to be getting older everyday i met someone at my new job that owns a little Tumbling studio in Provo called High Altitude and she said i can bring him over for a little trial run to see if that is something he would like to do. I am taking him next week, i hope he likes it. I will keep you updated.

We are BACK!

It's a new year and a new BEGINNING. I haven't blogged since July because the past 6 months have been extra challenging but good news is i am starting over. Now i am taking on Exciting and new positive challenges. For all those that know me should also know my current situation, and there is really no need to go into any specific detail. Alot of things have changed since my last blog. I am no longer living in Layton, my babies and i are staying in Springville at my parents house. We have been there since September and we have enjoyed it thus far but i will say we are really looking forward to finding a place of our own. Since our Financial situation has changed i have had to go back to work. In September i finished a Phlebotomy course at the MATC in Orem, hoping to find a job shortly after finishing. No such luck, it turns out it is not as easy as i thought it would be, every where i went wanted people with experience but come on how do i get experience if no one will hire me. After weeks of searching i was desperate and went back to my High School days job. Kara Chocolates, they were nice enough to hire me back on and on a schedule that would work with my kids. I work Mon Wed and Friday 7 - 3. I did miss the chocolate and all the other yummy things we sell but lets face it i can't work here forever. A few weeks ago i applied to Discovery Ranch in Mapleton and with help of a friend who works there i got an interview later that week. I went in and got the job on the spot, starting out as ON CALL, hey i will take it. This job is what i want to go to school for and it pays a little better. My first shift Monday! I cannot wait. I just hope that i am good at it and they will want to give me a set shift. I will keep you posted. As for the kids....they are doing AWESOME! They are so beautiful and the sweetest kids ever, don't get me wrong they do have their days considering they are 2 1/2 and 19 months old so that is to be expected right? Jacoby has been really active and oh such a boy! He loves his cars and his little cousin Edynn, he gets so excited when he sees her it's so sweet. I have recently enrolled him in Preschool at a place called The Kinder Garden in Mapleton it looks great and everything i want in a preschool. I am nervous for Coby to be around so many other kids but i also know it'll do him good. You see he has a little problem with sharing in Nursery, Luckily he has been potty trained for the last 4 months and rarely rarely has any accidents so he has that going for him. lol. Now for little Jaycie well she isn't so little anymore, she is small in stature but she has a tummy and a bootie on her that the family always comments on but it's okay though it balances out. She is 19 months old and so smart. She talks alot and already puts 2 to 3 words together. She loves babies and cars. Her and her brother usually get along but when they don't it is Jayce beating up on Coby, Jayce is my feisty one just like her mommy and Coby is the tender hearted one also like mommy :) Jayce loves to dance and takes every opportunity to do so, we are always listening to music at the house when we are alone. I get a little crazy dancing around but hey the kids love it. I am thinking about putting them both in some sort of dance class this summer, they'd be great. Anyway that is my novel for the day to help all of you see what has been going on the last few months sorry it has been so long. But the good thing is I'M BACK and my next post will be lots of pictures.

Fun in the Summer Sun!!

He is so Relaxed...aaahhh

Look how happy she is :)

At the Scera Pool

Out back in Aunt Danielle's yard

This summer we have been doing alot of swimming whether it is just out in the yard in the kiddie pool or going to 7 Peaks and the Scera Pool. This year Coby just loves the water, he goes underwater and swims everywhere on his tummy and even his back sometimes. At 7 Peaks he loves the Wave Pool and just keeps wanting to go deeper and deeper, he has no fear. As for Jaycie she loves the water too but she'd rather just sit in it and take on the splashes and waves as they come to her, she has fallen underwater a few times but she just shakes it off and moves on, she never cries. I guess i have a pair of little water babies! Not to mention how blasted Tan they are too, they definitely have their daddy's complexion. I have really enjoyed being out in the sun as well, there is something about it that just makes you happy no matter what and I've been dealing with a lot lately so it has definitely been Sun Therapy. I hope we have a few more months of this weather because i am not quite ready for a change.

Jaycie turns "1"

About a few month ago, we celebrated Jaycie's 1st Birthday. Since her cousin Zyanne turned 2 5 days earlier we decided to combine the two and have one big Birthday Luau! We had it at my parents house and it was a blast. Me and Danielle spent the whole week preparing for the party by finding cute the dollar store and figuring out a menu! We decided on Pulled Pork sandwiches. We bought the meat at a place in Springville for a really good price and it was sooo tasty! Everyone loved it! We also had fresh fruit Kabobs with chocolate drizzled over them, and this yummy Mango Salsa that Haley made with tortilla chips. For dessert we had cute little cupcakes with little Palm Trees sticking out from the top of them. My cousin Lindsay made both Zy Zy's and Jayce's Cake they were was sooo cute. We bought a lei from Partyland and used the flowers on the cakes it turned out perfect. We provided lei's for everyone a couple of grass skirts for the little ladies and big straw hats for the men. Everyone participated in wearing something Luau. We had the party outside and had a little pool set up with a slide for the really little ones and a slip n slide for the bigger kids. Everyone was really having a great time, we even had a friend show up ready to party in his little black Speedo, it was hilarious. He almost scared my in laws away but luckily they are used to him and were able to fight through it:) We just hung out and ate and watched the kids go nuts in the water. Jacoby and Jaycie were so cute they were playing on the slip n slide and Jayce kept face planting it into the water but she was okay she loved it. When it was time for cake we put a blanket down on the grass and brought the cakes to the girls. We sang them Happy Birthday and Zy blew out her candle while Coby had to do it for Sissy (We forgot to practice with her) I put the cake in between Jayce's leg and she went crazy and just dug right in to that thing like there was no tomorrow. It was hilarious, and she didn't stop for about 20 minutes, she thought that was the best thing she has ever tasted, i got some really great pictures of it. After she was done and her cake was a mess she started on Zy Zy's, she just couldn't get enough it was all over her face and even up her nose i had to clean it out a few times because she would start whining but then she would just keep on going. I had to make Coby dig into his cake last year so this was a real treat for me, she was all about it. After cleaning her up we decided to open presents. Tom and I bought her her first baby. For the past couple of weeks she has been stealing Zy's so she could cuddle with it so we knew it was the perfect gift and we were right she loved it. Her face was priceless. Tom quickly opened it up for her and she had it in her arms the rest of the night. Even now she loves to push her in the doll stroller and feed her, it is so fun to watch, she is such a little mommy herself. The Luau was a hit and we are so thankful to everyone that came. Sean and Haley, Po and Lo, Kenton and Cassie, Gavin, and Anya, Pou, Jessica, and Issac, Jake and Dan of course, Grammie and Grampa, Amma and Papa, and the Archundes. Thank you all your the best friends and family a girl could have!

I cannot believe my little girl is now 1 years old. She is walking all over the place and even says Up, Out, Mama, and Ow. She is learning something new everyday and i am really looking forward to getting her pictures taken. Happy Birthday CeCe!!

Jacoby's 2 year old Pictures

I finally got the pictures back from Jacoby's 2 year photo shoot back in April! My amazing and talented Cousin Lindsey Smith and her sister in law/Friend Becky Smith took these pictures. We did them at an old house that was vacant on the old highway in springville. They turned out so great and Coby was an angel, he loved all the attention and the paparazzi ;) They took about 200 photos between the 2 of them and they are all amazing but too many to post so here are a few of the ones that i instantly fell in love with.
