When it was over I went back to his classroom and took some pictures. There were several parents doing the same. We were joking that the kids were having a photo shoot.
The cutest monkey of all.

I am seroiusly so excited for the "Twilight" movie. If, by any chance, you haven't yet seen the official teaser trailer you must. I'm going to have a totally adolescent moment here and say that I am soooo excited and that December can't come soon enough. Also I have to say that Robert Pattinson is really growing on me. At first I was thinking, "Cedric as Edward, really?" but now I'm pretty excited to see him as Edward.
The final two of American Idol. Only one more week. I hope Archuleta wins. I really like Cook, too, so either way is okay.
There is a beaver living in the park behind us. Karl took the kids out the other day and found his house. So now Karl is rigging up some contraption so he can put the camera up into the hole and get a picture of him. Poor beaver.
I warned you this was random.

A. ATTACHED OR SINGLE? attatched...obviously
B. BEST FRIEND? Karl
C. CAKE OR PIE? Pie. Fresh strawberry with lots of whipped topping, or a hot peach or apple pie with some ice cream. YUMMMMM!
D. DAY OF CHOICE? Saturday. Everyother day is scheduled. Saturday is my relaxation day.
E. ESSENTIAL ITEMS? Cell phone, a good book, the internet, my car
F. FAVORITE COLORS? red, pink, yellow, brown, lime, soft blues, this could go on for a while. I love color.
G. GUMMY BEARS OR WORMS? Both, but if I had to choose it would be the sour worms.
H. HOMETOWN? Mesa, AZ
I. INDULGENCE? Reading, reading, and more reading, a girlie movie sans Karl, a nice long soak in the tub.
J. JANUARY OR JULY? July, and I'd have to seriously reconsider my friendship with anyone who would chose January.
K. KIDS? 2 boys, 1 princess
L. LIFE ISN'T COMPLETE WITHOUT? Karl, Cruz, Kenyon, Mara, nights out with my girlfriends, books
M. MARRIAGE DATE? Feb. 25, 1995
N. NUMBER OF BROTHERS AND SISTERS? 3 brothers
O. ORANGES OR APPLES? Oranges - straight from the tree. That's one of the biggest things I miss about AZ.
P. PHOBIAS OR FEARS? Something happening to my family, heights, and spiders.
Q. QUOTE? "Making the decision to have a child is momentous.It is to decide forever to have your heart go walkingaround outside your body."~Elizabeth Stone, and I recently read the same quote as Anna and I loved it as well. I'll limit it to the last line, "Today Mr. Darcy is a vampire." I think I loved it because it referenced both of my favorite books, Pride and Prejudice and Twilight. I've got a ton, but I'll stop with this one, "You always have time for the things you put first."
R. REASON TO SMILE? My funny kids and husband, a sunny day, the smell of rain, snuggling a puppy
S. SUPERMAN OR WONDER WOMAN? Superman rocks, but I have a soft spot for Wonder Woman, I used to love that TV show with Linda Carter.
T. TAG 5 PEOPLE... Lisa, Phaedra, Jenny, Sarah, and Brooke
U. UNKNOWN FACT ABOUT ME: This is not so very unknown, but a but unique. My front teeth are fake.
V. VEGETABLES? Tomatoes, corn-on-the-cob, yams, sweet peas straight from the garden, peppers...I love vegetables.
W. WORST HABIT? Once I start something, anything, I'm obsessed until it is finished. Nothing can interrupt me, I'm a woman on a mission and I must complete it. This is bad because I really can't focus or concentrate on anything else until I'm done with whatever it is that I've started. It drives Karl crazy.
X. X-RAY OR ULTRASOUND? Ultrasound...really, who would pick x-ray?
Y. YOUR FAVORITE FOOD? at this moment my favorite food is a warm brownie right out of the oven with a glass of milk. An hour ago or an hour from now the answer would probably be different
Z. ZODIAC SIGN? Pisces.

Swimming - living in Mesa, AZ, this filled most summer days.
Cookouts at my grandparents - barbecued chicken, potato salad, and baked beans. I loved it, but I remember by the end of summer thinking, "Can't we eat anything else?"
Floating the Salt River with my friends.
Driving through the desert at night.
My first kiss. (I can't even remember his name now.)
Summer romances. (Sigh!) Weren't summer romances the best? Of course nothing compared to you, Karl.
And that's it. Completely pathetic, I know.

Cruz's group in front of the Lions
Cruz got to pet a lizard after the animal show.Cruz had a great time. When we got home Karl asked him if he was a BYU fan now. Cruz said no, he was still a Ute fan and that the museum at the U was better. His dad was happy to hear that.

spent 30 minutes watching someone go to the bathroom, and then was so excited that they did that I called people just to tell them about it.
jumped up like a maniac when the house became too quiet to run through every room trying to see what was being destroyed.
spent all day cooking just to throw most of it in the trash.
put myself in time-out.
recieved 30 hugs and kisses from 3 different people at the same time.
heard "You are the prettiest mom in the whole world and the whole outer space," when I have morning hair, no makeup, and puffy morning eyes.
watched a movie with 3 people on top of me.
watched 3 people sleeping and thought I would absolutely burst with love and happiness.
really recognized and appreciated all the things my own mother did and still does for me. (Thanks for EVERYTHING, Mom!)
