Guess who has a birthday today????

Cara does!
Happy Birthday, girlfriend!
For those of you who don't know my dearest friend Cara, let me just tell ya........she's pretty much amazing! We first met each other our sophomore year in high school and have been best buds ever since.
Let me tell you what makes Cara so great:
She listened to me talk about my missionary (now my husband) all of the time. Seriously, ALL OF THE TIME.
We both were in dance company together and we would have SO MUCH FUN choreographing dances. If only I had the dance on video that we did to the song "Pure Energy" by Information Society. You'd be incredibly jealous.
She stayed the night at my house the night before my wedding so I would have someone to cry with and laugh with. Good times.
I could tell her pretty much how I peed my pants on my 18th birthday (long story). She made fun of me for it, but then........well I won't tell you the rest.
She does a great impersonation of Zoolander and Kipp from Napoleon Dynamite.
She's got some gorgeous hair! She'll grow it way long and then cut it all off to give to Locks of Love. How nice is that?! Whoever has her hair, probably looks like Barbie now.
And one more thing.....
we took some amazing pictures together in high school. Just look below.
I don't even want to give a description on this picture.
Here we are at student council camp. Okay, so some of you may be thinking, "I thought Mormons didn't drink????". Unfortunately, we weren't. We're just insane.
I can't believe I convinced myself to post this picture.

Wow, look at those cheerleaders. Isn't that pose totally original? I think so.
Happy Birthday, Cara! We love you!

Hopefully we're still friends!

All "Screwed Up"

For those of you wondering what it is like with two kids, let me tell's fun! Some days are completely crazy, but I have to just laugh or else I'd probably shoot myself. For instance, on Sunday, our entire family (all 4 of us) decided to go to church for the first time since Emmalee's been around. I think we woke up at 7 AM to get ready and it pretty much took us til' church started to be done getting ready. Church didn't start til' 1:30 PM. (Yikes). We show up to sacrament meeting and of course, right off the bat, Braddock starts getting really fidgety. He did not want us to hold him and he did not want to be sitting on the bench. He wanted to play. Of course, he wasn't very reverent, so I picked him up and he started throwing a fit. Jim then looked at me and said, "hand me his diaper bag". I hand him the bag and Jim pulls out this massive screwdriver. Braddock's eyes lit up when he saw it. (Look at picture below to better understand why. ) I started busting up laughing because afterall, what kind of parent brings a screwdriver to church for their 18 month old to play with? Apparently, we do. Braddock then began "working" on the bench. Hilariousness.
Okay, now back to church.............................SO, sacrament gets over and it's time for Sunday school. Emmalee needs to eat, so I take her to the mother's lounge to feed her. Within 10 minutes of the feeding, I begin developing this warm sensation on my legs. Yes people, she sharted all over me!!! All over my dress, all over her, and all over her blanket.
I spent the next half hour trying to get the both us cleaned up before Young Womens started, which I had to teach the Beehives. Luckily, I was able to make it in time to give a lesson.
When Jim and I headed home from church that day, he looked at me and said, " I don't ever want to do that again." I'm pretty sure he was joking......well at least partially.
I hear it gets better.............please tell me this is true. LOL
Here's a couple pics for the week.
Our little chunka-munka.

If there's a screw, he's there too!

The Hub

I just have to say that I think my husband is ridiculously good looking, don't you think so? Nevermind, don't answer that.
I just had to post these pictures because he's a cute daddy.
Love ya, babe!

Oh my word.....

.....trying to take a picture of Braddock and Emmalee together has probably been one of the most difficult tasks to take on. Let me show you some pictures to better explain just how difficult it really is.

Example #1: And this is only the beginning.
Example #2: I think Emmalee's face explains it all.
Example #3: Notice Braddock's hand is all blurry??? That's because it's moving at the speed of lightning toward her soft spot.
This is the only somewhat decent picture I was able to take. You can't even see Em's face. Ridiculous, I tell you.
Good thing this kid is cute, or I'd have to beat him!
