Happy Birthday Andee!

Well this week marks Andee's 6th birthday on Tuesday February 23rd. She is SO excited about it she can just hardley stand it. Andee was born sometime early in the morning if I remember right, before 8am I think. I was there but I wasn't really mentally available thanks to the fact that the epidural I requested 9 months prior did not arrive in time. Andee was in a VERY big hurry, like a 20 minute one. She was so beautiful with all this black hair and olive skin, far from the dirty blonde and cute freckles she sports now however I think she is more beautiful than ever. The first 3 years were a nightmare, she was always puking and crying and throwing tantrums in public AND in private and then one day she woke up and turned into the sweetest little princess you have ever seen. At that point she passed her major attitude on to her brother and thier roles have been reversed ever since. She is full of hugs and kisses and I love you's all day long. I am sure she is not far from skuzzes, middle finger's and you're the worst parent's ever so I will enjoy this while I can. I love you Andee and I am so proud of the beautiful sweet little girl you have become! I hope you have a great 6th birthday! By the way, don't let the schmoozing fool you because deep down under all of that glitter is her strong fighting spirit that she gets from you know who, and trust me you don't ever want to unleash that unless you have too! :) Heidi

OMG!


I know! Less than 1 month has gone by and I have blogged 2 times! Wierd isn't it? In the last 4ish weeks I have been VERY busy as usual. We have moved (down the road) to Huntsville which has been taking up a lot of time but worth it I think. Our new house is a little bit bigger and completely remodeled, new carpet, tile, stainless steel appliances and granite countertops which is all nice but the best part is that it sits on 2 acres and it's in the country away from most people. I am sad to leave my neighbors Ried & Valorie but I can honestly say this is the first time I have ever been sad to leave neighbors and since it's just down the road it's not so bad. The dogs will love the space too and in the spring we will bring in some little goats. The kids still go to the same school so there isn't any change for them as far as that goes, different bus but the cool part is that the bus picks them up right at the end of the driveway so they really love that and so do I! We are very anxious for spring to come, I am really over this cold weather. Greyson says Punksatawney Phil did not see his shadow so there will be 6 more weeks of winter. Boo Hoo! Hope everyone is well......blog again soon.....or later! Heidi

Hungry Hungry Hippos!

Snack time, which includes carrots, apples or sugar cubes has on many occasions resulted in fights, biting ears, shoving siblings off the hill and down right temper tantrums!

Cortney Woolsey, Miss High School Rodeo Utah
Cortney is in the family and she just won Miss High School Rodeo Utah and is now going on to compete in Nationals in New Mexico I think. Very expensive trip for her family so they had a benefit on Saturday to try and raise funds for her. Andee thought she was for sure a princess. Good Luck Cortney we will all be rooting for you!

Brett Earl Benefit

Brett Earl Benefit
Last month on the eve of Easter, Greyson's friend and classmate Taj lost his dad to a very sudden unexpected heart attack. Brett was 38 years old and left his wife and 4 children with no life insurance. It was very sad but the entire community came together to help raise funds for the family. A benefit was held at Powder Mountain with a silent auction, BBQ, bake sale and numerous other activities with 100% of the proceeds going to the Earls. My generous boss, Dr. Engleby donated funds for me to make some crafts to auction off and it went VERY well! Everything was sold and $10,000+ was raised for the family.

Sage in da' hood!

Sage in da' hood!
Poor Sage had all of his hair shaved off this week for summer and if you live around here then you know that summer is definitley not here! After a week of downpours and snow storms poor Sagers is freezing! So he's had to wear a jacket out and I think you can tell from the look on his face, he's humiliated! :)

Vegas has a new bed!

Vegas has a new bed!
This is the new bed of choice for Vegas, much to my protest she loves sleeping here! What's the big deal you ask? 14 feet up high. However if you have owned a cat then you know they do not care what you think and the more you try to persuade them not to behave this way, the more they do. Whatever Vegas!
