Tuesday, November 18, 2008


So we have a DVR and we love to watch the office. So we record EVERY episode and watch them after the kids go to bed. It's on TBS every tuesday and wednesday and then NBC on Thursday. But I just watched a funny one and there was a funny joke that Jim tells to Michael when he walks into the office in this episode....he says "It smells like up dog in here" and Michael asks "What's up dog??!" hahahah get it?!?! That's funny!! I get a kick out of this show like none other!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!! It's the best!! We've only been watching it for the past year. Does anyone know how Jim and Pam get together?!? We saw the an old episode of Pam getting engaged to Roy on a boat. Jim is totally digging pam in this episode and he is totally crushed that Pam is engaged to Roy. So how do they break it off and how does it all work out that Jim and Pam finally get together? I missed how that all happened! Please someone tell me!

Roscoe the Dog

Last night we went to our friends house Charlene and Nate's House. We love to eat dinner together. Charlene is an amazing cook. Wow! They got this new little miniature pinscher dog. Charlene named him Roscoe. He is so small and dainty. The kids loved chasing him around and mayley thought of a new name for him. "RASTA-DOG" instead of Roscoe. It was pretty funny to hear her running around the house trying to catch the dog and yelling Rasta-dog!! We love our little Mayley and funny things she says!! Hunter loves Dogs I think even more! Except he tries to hit them instead of pet them. He is instense with everything he does!!

My quriks!!

My cute friend Rachel tagged me and I have thought about this for awhile of different things about me that maybe that you don't know. It made me think a lot and it was fun to do! Thanks Rach!!

Rules; 1 Link the person who tagged you. 2 Mention the rules on your blog. 3 Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours. 4 Tag 6 other bloggers by linking them.

These are in no paticular order:

1) I actually enjoy going to the Dentist. It is relaxing to me to sit in the chair and watch TV. My Dentist is super nice and the ladies that work for him are super fun to talk to. It also gives me a chance to have time for myself. I actually think its fun to get numbed in your mouth because its funny to eat afterwards!! last week I had to get my first crown (I don't like so much the drilling and the smoke that comes out of my mouth) but I love being relaxed. When I was younger and I went to my family dentist I ALWAYS got the Gas and it was my favorite thing EVER! Now I have to sacrifice and not get it because its a little too much moola.

2) I love to eat bananas but I don't like to eat banana flavored candies. I love banana bread and things that have REAL bananas in them but not candy stuff. Weird I know.

3) I admitted to my friend last night Charlene that I don't like to really read. Its not fun for me. I think that is WEIRD because EVERYONE is always telling me about books they are reading. And it seems like everyone has read all of the twilight books. Bry got offered tickets to a special premiere to the movie Twlight at Jordan Commons next week and I said, "Well i have never read the books so it wouldn't be fun for me." I know like a million ladies in my ward that would love to have them. Don't hate me girls! ahhh. I do like to read my scriptures and the ensign and the friend though! I do have to admit that I LOVE reading picture books to my kids though!! They love it.

4) I love to go inside craft stores like Roberts or Joann's and look around and get fun ideas but I never seem to buy anything. I just love the fun things they have in there.

5) I never iron my clothes. I just always throw them in the dryer and get them warm and hurry and put them on. I don't even know how to iron bryan's work shirts he does it himself. I have tried but I'm not very good. yikes.

6) I always have to wear pajamas to bed. I have all kinds of different shirts that I wear with fun jammy bottoms. I am wearing my BYU-Idaho shirt and my jammy bottoms right now. I can't wear just my "G's" to bed.

This is super fun to do: I tag minha Familia e amigas: Britt, Lynda, Kerri, Nancy, Christianna, Kate, & Marissa :)

Mayley Multi-tasking!!

A joke while Bryan and I were dating was that we could multitask while talking on the phone with each other since I lived at my parents house before the mission and he lived in Rexburg at BYU-Idaho so we talked A LOT on the phone. Well I guess Mayley started multi- tasking last night. She has recently been saying her own prayers at meal time and before she goes to bed. So last night at dinner time we asked her who was going to say the prayer. She replied, "ME" So she started praying..."Heavenly Father, thank you this day, thank you for food," Then there is a pause in the prayer and we hear her fork hitting in the plate and we squint our eyes open to see her sneaking a bite of food in between the prayer...then she went on with the prayer "Bless Hunter, bless mommy, bless daddy, in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen."

It was classic!! One of those moments that you have to laugh at! I'm sure Heavenly Father had a smile on his face as well. I love the innocence of my children!! It was so stinkin funny. I giggle everytime I think of her sneaking that bite in!!!

A fun suprise!

Last Wednesday Bryan called and said that he got us tickets to Disney on Ice at the Energy Solutions arena!! I kept dreaming how fun it would be to go and my little dream came true. We told Mayley all day that we were going to a princess show and she jumped around the house because she was so estatic!! It was super cute show. Mayley's favorite was Nemo and Dory. The characters were amazing at their skating skills. Professionals obviously! Hunter danced in his chair for a while and we got popcorn to entertain the kids after awhile too. What a fun night of disneyness!!!

This picture cracks me of their faces!!!Beauty and the beast!! So CUTE!! Mayley would say!

Our favorite disney pixar movie in our house is of course if you know it you would know " It's BRUCIE!!"

I got through it!!

So I finally did it! My first offical piano recital. Its quite a scary thing being the piano teacher and watching my students get up there and watch them perform with everything I have taught them. Most of my students are first timers too. Meaning it was their first time ever to play at a recital. I was only 6 or 7 years old I think at my first piano recital. I remember it was in this ladies home and it was really messy inside and my dad kept telling us how dirty it was after we left. good thing for the piano store that let us do it at their recital hall. I have lots of scary and funny memories from piano recitals when I was growing up. My favorite one that I will never forget was when I was about 9 or 10 and me and my best friend Jessica were playing at Julie Goodro's back yard during the spring or summer time and I got up and looked straight at Jessica and said "Hi my name is Jessica Walton and I will be playing blah blah blah" I really can't remember the song but we were laughing super hard. What a funny memory! I have lots of sad memories from my recitals since my mind would always go blank in the middle of the memorized piece and I would have to have my teacher come and put the music up on the piano for me to finish the piece. My hands would shake so bad that I could not control where they went on the keyboard. I was a nervous wreck when it came to recitals. of course I would bawl for the rest of the night. ahhhhhh. I kept playing after all of those years though and love being a teacher now. I only have 6 students right because of all of what life is giving me to take care of right now. Being a mom, a homemaker, and being in the primary, and doing my best to be a good wife to my wonderful amazing husband who I adore to pieces. I wanted to perform the night of the recital so I practiced super hard the song "Hall of the Mountain King" by Edvard Greig. Uhhh lets just say it was a little embarrassing...not as bad I was expected but I know I didn't play it perfect...I had very little time to practice and when I did I found out the night of the recital that I had been practicing it wrong. which added more stress to the actual performance. I guess I did my best with the little bit of anxiety I had in me. Wow! What an experience!! My students left to right: Manda (the black cat) shelbie (the clown), Todd (a jedi knight), Karl (some kind of cape on witht he brown shirt) Mitch (the pumpkin) and Nikki is next to me. My friend let me borrow her Midevil sorcerer princess costume. I though it was pretty awesome!!

Happy Halloween

Mayley was Minnie Mouse, Hunter was Mickey Mouse and Bry and I were party poopers and did not dress up. Each year at Bry's work they have all the kids come and trick or treat at lunch. Hunter and Mayley went around to everyones office and gathered up a ton of candy. They went back to Bry's office and enjoyed it all.

The Deck!

We finally finished the deck. Thanks to Grandpa Call and Bry. The goal was to have the yard, fence, and deck done for Hunters birthday. We are three months behind but it looks great.
