Our 5th Valentines Day

Mike always says, Valentines Day is the Halmark Holiday and he never takes it seriously. This year, i decided to take it to my level and made reservations at this really nice, outdoor setting restaurant and told him to be ready by 6:30pm. He said he had plans for us, but we'd go with mine and wouldnt tell me what his were!! Dinner was AMAZING! it was sooo delicious! We ate at the Old Town Tortilla Factory in Scottsdale, and the food was beyond what we expected. There was a water fountain and tons of trees & white christmas lights everywhere, and candles on our table. It was soo quiet and romantic. Then we were going to go somewhere for dessert, but we ended up at Dave & Busters! LOL. It was fun playing basketball and running around playing games, getting tickets, and photobooth! We ended the night at Kileys Grill, which is 'our' bar we go to because its right next to our house! Such an amazing time. Way better than I had planned!!


Dear Loving Husband of Mine.
A few months ago, I couldnt even see what our life was going to look like from day to day. Couldnt see how we could possibly get past certain problems ive caused us. But you stuck by my side and was there for me. You proved your love, stuck thru the pain and worked past our issues for us, for our family. I have always known you are an amazing man, but working things out together made me realize (even more) that you really are that once in a lifetime dream come true. The man i love calling my husband, and im looking forward to spending the rest of my life with. You are such a strong person, stronger than i will ever be. I hope your proud to stand beside me and know you made the right choice. Thank you for believing in me, loving me, and giving me this chance to make things right. I cherish our life together more and more each day. Enjoy laughing with you about things our boys do as they learn and grow. I love kissing you goodnight, and good morning too. I love your quirky dance moves. Your sweet smile, and poofy hair. Watching football on Sundays, even tho you think i really dont like it [when secretly i do!]. You go to school, and work to provide for us.You are a devoted man, one that will do anything for your family and i love that about you. You are everything I expected and more in a husband, and such an amazing father. This is going to be a big year for us, and i cannot wait to see how far we've came. Thank you for being so big hearted, being my hunk of love.. my rock. I love you with all my heart, and I am proud to have your last name.

Love Then.. Now.. and Forever,
your wiff
XOXO

Vacation to Flagstaff

Mike decided that we need a little family vacation, so he planned a trip up North to Flagstaff, Arizona! I was soo beyond excited because Mike works Fri & Saturday nights so we NEVER get to go out of town and do things! Its about 4 hours away from where we live, so we had quite a drive ahead of us, but the boys were SOO GOOD! When we got up there & started seeing snow Mason was screaming 'mommyyy!!' and pointing out the window at the white stuff on the ground! He was so unsure what it was! Brayden of course, was just taking it all in! At one point we asked Mason how many tree's there were & he was like... "1..2..4..3..3..4..2..1..2..3..4" and would use his fingers. Finally he said FOUR! lol. It was ADORABLE! So we finally made it to the Hilton Hotel, where we were staying and decided to relax for the rest of the evening. We grabbed Dinner at this mexican restuarant (of course!) and it was soo gross! Once we left, it was soo cold outside i was rushing to unlock the door, and broke the key off! I was seriously laughing so hard. So we put the kids on the top of the jeep so they wouldnt run away & got it unlocked in a couple minutes. It was nothing new because ive locked the keys in that Jeep about a million times! When we got back to the hotel we decided to go swimming in the indoor heated pool (The whole reason we picked that hotel) and then gave them baths, and called it a night :] The next morning, we got the boys all suited up in their snow gear, and got some fast food for breakfast and headed up the mountain! We found this spot where everyones cars were, but no ppl were found anywhere! So we followed the foot tracks and STILL no people! So we made our own little area, and had a blast in the fresh snow! After we wrestled in the snow, threw some snowballs and a had a few laughs we packed the boys back up and headed to another area where there was a hugee hill for sledding! Tons of ppl were there and we all had a great time! Mason was so brave and kept going all by himself! Brayden never said a peep and just kept up with me as i carried him up the hill, and sled down about a million times! It was such a great trip! I wish we could have stayed a lot longer! Here are only a few pictures, because im pretty sure my blog is way too long. Thanks for reading!!

Monster Jam

Mike & I took Mason to the MONSTER TRUCKS at Chase Field last night! He LOVES trucks, and everytime he saw the commercial for the show, he would stare and scream and laugh and go crazy! So we decided to take him on a little mommy/daddy/me date! We really wanted to take Brayden too, but he doesnt like how loud the trucks are. Maybe next year he will be old enough tho! We are definitely going to start going every year, because Mason just had a blast, and so did we! We met up with Justin, which is mikes brother from another mother, and Kurt with his 2 kids! We really had so much fun screaming and yelling. Mason decided to steal my seat and sat next to this blonde girl that he started flirting with! He even got her to kiss him. That made me a little uncomfortable so I made him switch back between Mike and I. I mean, who kisses some strangers child. That really bugged me!! Anyways! We got him a slushy that came in a really cool souvenier cup, and I bought him these really cool tire ear muffs because im 'overprotective' and wanted to protect his little ears. But he didnt wear them long! Anyways, its off to do some homework and watch a movie with the Hunk.

in a slump

Idk why but lately i get so down for no reason. Nothing triggers it, there's no reason for me to be in a bad mood. But i just dont want to talk to anyone, just wanna be left alone to do what needs to be done.. dishes, laundry, homework, scrubbing floors, changing diapers, putting toys away, dealing with the daily. I cant stand being 'unhappy' like this. There is ABSOLUTELY no reason for it. I have nothing to vent about. So whats the deal? Its exhausting feeling like this. It takes so much to make me laugh. I need to do something to change this but if i dont know what the problem is, how do I fix it? [[sigh]].
