my boy loves to sing

WARNING: This video includes my singing...(amber)

Ammon is so funny! I was singing to him during breakfast and it very quickly turned into a duet, I had to pull out the camera. We sang several songs like this :) Enjoy, or not.

Ammon did this at church also while we sang in

Santa Makes House Calls...

I was so afraid that Ammon would not be able to meet Santa this year because I had waited until there was just about no time left. Luckily one of our good friends from church has a costume! He was kind enough to come over today and sit through a million flashes as I clicked away with my camera. Thanks Paul for making time for Ammon :)
Ammon did so great with him!!

of course Ammon tugged on the Beard and glasses....

ho ho ho

Open Wide

This Ammon's newest "THING" that he does. It is so funny and adorable, well at least I think so. He does this when he is excited or when he sees me or Jason.

Sorry about the picture overload, I couldn't pick just one!

So Proud

Jason finished school finally. This week was his last week and I am so proud of him. He graduated with a dual degree in Business Administration/management and Human Resources. He has worked so hard. Working full time and going to school full time is NOT an easy task. It is also much harder when you have an extremely needy wife like me. Jason is also the Scout Master in our Ward (church) and that has kept him busy as well. He also helps me most Sundays by substituting primary classes when a teacher is gone. He actually covered one class for over a month until I was able to get another teacher called. The kids think that he is their teacher because he subs so much. He is just wonderful and he never complains and always does such a great job. Today was the first Sunday he has not had to help me in a while. His load had been very heavy and I hated that I could not help him more. Even being pushed and pulled in every direction he is still sane. I have never seen him more stressed than this past year, but I also have never been more proud of him. I love him so much and am grateful that he is such a wonderful husband, father and friend. He is just perfect for me. He is going to take a little bit of time off before starting on his MBA. I will enjoy getting more of his attention and hopefully we can get some of these unfinished projects complete. He hopes to be able to attend TCU. So if you see or talk to him make sure you tell him congrats..... he deserves it. I love "My Honey". Good job baby, you are so great!

Nobody Likes Getting Older

On Thursday Ammon turned 8!!! He is growning up so fast. Our normally happy little guy was actually sick and running a fever, so smiles were few and far between for the both of us. Sick days are the hardest. He is still under the weather and I hope he will feel better soon. I love this expression. I am sure he is thinking " what is the point of this again??"
Are we done yet?

I seeeeee you and the mess behind the rocker!!!

1. I am so afraid of the dark! Wait, I am TERRIFIED of the dark. It is so horrible and I know that I am 27 years old and should have outgrown my terror 18 years ago. Staying all by myself at night is out of the question!!! Even with Jason right next to me in bed, I often flip open my cell phone so there is just enough light to see and not bother Jason. I am a complete scaredy cat and I hate it. Even as a senior in High School when I would make my mother sleep with me she would say...." One day you will out grow this!" I am still waiting mom:)

2. I love dogs despite the fact I was attacked by one at the age of 18 months. I have no memory of the incident so I guess that is why I still love them. On the other hand...I strongly dislike cats! I do in fact remember a "mean" cat we had by the name of Caesar. This cat hated me for some strange reason and would randomly attack me by clawing my hands or feet. ooooooo that cat!

3. Snickers, I could eat them everyday. I usually do. Jason thinks the way I eat a Snickers is so weird. I eat the nougat first, and then the roasted peanuts and caramel. It just tastes better that way! I love the taste of the nougat and I do not want anything to interfere with the amazing creation of this sweet sensation.

4. I am the youngest girl of 13 children. I have 8 sisters and 4 brothers. We are yours, mine, and ours. Even still, that is a lot of kids:) Want me to name them all??? Okay. My mom's nine are...
Rita, Shirley, Mary, Laura, Tres, Sarah, Jacob, ME and James. From my dad's first marriage...
Mary Ann, Leroy, Carley and Abbie. If I could only remember all their birthdays.

5. I am pretty darn good at bargain shopping. I love to shop and without breaking the bank!

6. I absolutely lOvE to sing. Those of you that are around me very much are tortured often :O la La LA LA LA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It just makes me so happy. Music is great. When I was younger and riding in my friend Amber's car, she would say "if you sing to the song on the radio I am turning it off!" Sadly enough there were times we went with the radio off. LOL! I just said that I lOvE to sing, not that I am good at it :) Mi MI Mi MI Mi...........................

"O Christmas Tree"

This was on MoNdAy!!!!!! I put it up all by myself:( Jason has just been sooooo busy with school and was sad that he couldn't help. He said he would be able to help in a week or so. HA!

Ammon liked the shiny bows, he just could not resist touching them!

This was on Tuesday.......lights are least some. I always buy my Christmas decorations at the after Christmas sale to save doe ray mi, if ya know what I mean. I bought lights last year and some of them did not work when I took them out of the box...... so not such a bargain after all.

This was this morning! ( SAT) We put up some of the ornaments on Wednesday around 11pm, but finished them up today. I am glad Jason was able to help.

Ammon loves the tree, lights, and especially the cords....... not so good. He yanks on the light cords/wires. We took a few pictures of Ammon and the finished product... enjoy...finally:)

I never would have thought it would take almost a week to get it all done!!! sooooooooo
