May is just the birthday month for us it was also Kaydon 2nd birthday May 10th. I can not believe how big he is getting. He weighs the same as kolton and tries to be just like him. He has learned to ride a razor scooter recently but does not talk yet. Unless you speak kaydon.(he has made up his own language.) still a very sweet but stubborn boy.
It was also Barts birthday in may and we got to go shopping and dinner without the boys thanks to his parents. I have also started training for a half marathon. It is kicking my butt but i am determined to finish. I am also thinking about running 2 this summer if i can get the training in. We are heading to california to finally see my sister play soccer tomorrow and can't wait to see her.

Kolton is the same old Kolton. He is always doing something he is not supposed to be doing. Screaming like a little girl or being the most lovable boy there can be. He hates to sleep. He has been waking up at 6:30 in the morning ready to play. I got him the other morning climbing up our bookcases. He got it big trouble. If he would have climbed up the other bookcase i know it would have fallen. He is in preschool and learning all his letters. He can write everyones name in the house and we are working on his last name. To many straight lines, it confuses him.
Bart has been really busy at work, and has now picked up a second job. Luckily the second job came looking for him and will work with his schedule. He can pretty much work whenever he wants and get paid between 20-25 a hour. I know there was a blessing to why i was turned down from 1-800 contacts. He has also been playing xbox like no other. I started calling my self the widow wife of an xbox addicted husband. But all in all he is a wonderful husband and tries to help out as much as his tried buddy allows him.
I can not wait until next week. I find out if i made it into Swiss Days. It is a big money maker and we really need this. I have heard that most people who are sellers at this event make at least 7k in one weekend. If i can keep up on the demand. My apron business came to a hault after christmas but the trade shows are starting back up so i am hoping that i am able to start selling again. I have been busy sewing fun things for friends and family. I just love sewing, and can't wait to learn techniques. I can not wait until we can move out of my parents basement and into our own home. We are a ways away from that but every month we get closer and closer. I have also been working out at the gym 4 times a week. It has been frustrating. I haven't lost any wieght but i have gained muscle. I am more toned and have more energy to run with the kids. I have a goal to run a half marathon this year. I am up to 4 miles and have 9 more to go. Wish me luck.
This is the cuttest stitch for this frabric. It is a little blurry but it is swirly. It makes the blanket even that more cute.

I am so excited that my dad was asked to be a part of the Stake Presidency he will do an excellent job. I have heard from members of our ward that they cried all day long because they are no longer having there amazing bishop. I great experience that happened this weekend is a couple in our ward have not been active for 10+ years. Elder kakuchi (sorry the spelling) came for Stake Conference and asked to meet if 5 families from the stake. They asked for each bishop to come up with 2 names of their ward. My dad sent in 4 names and of the 5 families 2 where from our ward. One of the families had a private meeting with Elder Kakuchi and my dad. They taled about the life style they have been living and was told he was going to get a special blessing that his body would reject smoking. That his body would no longer like smoking (he has struggle for many years trying to stop). Elder kakuchi went on to talk about getting sealed in the temple and told them he wanted them sealed no later then September of this year. This couple had not even thought about that in a long time. They told him they would as long as he attend the sealing. Eder Kakuchi being the great leader he is told them that if they followed his cousnseling and change there lifestyle that he would sealed them himself. They are so excited and working really hard to get sealed
It was so excited to see both sides of this story. They went to every meeting the Stake had this weekend and even got to sit front row at Conference. I can't wait to see them go through the temple and be sealed for time and all eternity. I am so greatful for the dad i have who is so in tune to the spirit. I believe that this all came about because of what a great man he is. I am sad that he is no longer bishop and my kids wont see him on the stand everyweek, but know that our stake will be greatly blessed because he is part of the stake president.
