Our family had a great Christmas! We started out by going to Sugar City and going to the Arnold family Christmas party. That was a lot of fun for me being that I hadnt seen alot of my family in years! We then headed to St.George, UT where my sister lives. We had a fabulous time eating, shopping, golfing(for the men), and letting our kids fight, I mean play together. My sister in law is really good at updating her blog and she made these picture collages.

Twilight movie

Yesterday was the opening of Twilight. I have to put in my review. Although they left out a few things in the book. I loved, loved it, loved it. Edward had to grow on me a bit but by the end of the movie I got used to him. I knew no matter where they stopped the movie I would want more. And of course I did. If you havent seen it, it is a must see. Even if you havent read the book I think you would enjoy it. Although I think it is 10 times better if you had. We had to wait in a huge line and we were not sure if we were even going to get seats. But it all worked out.

This was my first real outing since my surgeory. For those of you who dont know I went to the hospital about 2 weeks ago in indescribable pain (worse than childbirth). It was on my right side so Jeff was sure it was appendix and insisted we go to the hospital. After starting to throw up because I was in so much pain I finally agreed. I laid in the hospital for 2 days on morphine while they tried to figure out what was wrong with me. My OB was afraid to operate because I was 11 weeks pregnant. But after two days we realised there was no option. So after multiple priesthood blessings and prayers I went into surgeory. Apparently my right ovary being so oversized had turned over on itself and cut off the circulation, so the ovary had died. They removed it. A normal ovary is the size of your thumb and mine wasnt even close to that size. The picture looked like something out of this world. My left ovary is still also enlarged so I am praying that things will go fine and I will be able to keep it. My mom and family came to help me through it and I am so grateful for that. A person who has never had surgeory has no idea what it is like. I am thankful for all of my visitors, calls, and prayers received. Baby is fine and I have been truley blessed.

Happy Halloween!

This year we had Dracula, Superman, and a Hobo Clown.
They worked very hard on their pumpkins. Dalton and Cody did most of the work themselves this year!
This was Preston's first year of really trick or treating. The rain put a little damper on it but he was a little trooper. He didnt want to stop trick or treating. Dylan helped him with his pumpkin this year.

A little Something I've been working On!

Tomorrow I will be 9 weeks pregnant. It is still early and I am not spreading the news to everyone. But most of you who are bloggers already know.So I thought it would be fun to share my ultrasound pics, since most people dont usually get early ultrasounds like I did.
8 week ultrasound pic. Baby's heartrate was 170 bpm.It is normal for the baby to have a huge head at this point.
7 week ultrasound. Baby heartrate was 130 bmp
6 week ultrasound. Saw first heartbeat.
5 Week ultrasound. Saw 1 sac. It is the one on the left.

First baby picture. Embryo before transfer.

On Friday I went to Phantom of the Opera in Spokane with a couple of friends. It was so amazing. I had seen Phantom as a kid but I did not remember all of the little amazing things they do during the play. I bought the CD about a month before to brush up on the music. The singing was unbelievable of course. Although most everyone was dressed in "black tie" attire, so even in a Sunday dress, I felt under-dressed.
We had a fun weekend filled with fun,food, laughter, shopping, and Phantom.

After finding this link on a friends blog I had to post it. It is truly inspiring and somethings I suggest that you take the time to watch.
It really makes me think about my Savior and the amazing life that he lead and the example he set. You cant help but feel a deep love for the Savior when you watch this. It brought much needed spirit that I needed to feel.

Check it out!

Chocolate Chip Cookies

So I got up this morning and decided to make my beehives Choc. Chip cookies for class tomorrow. I tried a new recipe from "good things catered." They were very good. I will definately make them again. Also you can use salted butter you just dont add the salt it calls for.
2 cups plus 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
12 Tbsp (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted & cooled until warm
1 c brown sugar, packed
1/2 c granulated sugar
1 large egg plus 1 yolk
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Directions:-Adjust oven racks to upper & lower -middle positions & heat oven to 325. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.-Whisk dry ingredients together; set aside.-With electric mixer, or by hand, mix butter & sugars until thoroughly combined. -Beat in egg, yolk and vanilla until combined. -Add dry ingredients & beat at low speed just until combined. Stir in chips.-Roll scant 1/2 cup dough into ball. Holding dough ball in fingertips of both hands, pull into 2 equal halves. Rotate halves 90 degrees and, with jagged surfaces facing up, place formed dough onto cookie sheet, leaving ample room between each ball.-Bake, reversing position of cookie sheets halfway through baking, until cookies are light golden brown and outer edges start to harden yet centers are still soft & puffy (about 17 minutes in my oven). -Cool cookies on sheets until able to lift without breaking and place on wire rack to cool.

Your kidding me right?

I know what you are thinking....Boden cannot be a senior this year. Because that is the way that I feel. But he is! He just had his senior pictures taken this week and here is one of my favorites. It is really hard to believe that he is so grown up. Although he always has the dirtiest room and cant wash a dish without being told to save his life. There will really be an empty place in our home once he is gone. So I am going to do my best to savor this year with him. It makes me get emotional just thinking about it. But he is so exeptional, he is one of those kids that you really dont have to worry about. I know that whatever he decides to do and wherever he decides to go that he will be ok.

Fab Find!

Yesterday was my father in laws birthday...Happy Birthday shout out to Pops. So on Sunday night it was Jeff and my turn for dinner and so I made grandpas cake. He is diabetic and so he can have things as long as they are half the sugar as normal. So I had a few of these in my cupboard that I bought a while ago and decided to try it out. We had the devils food...and it was so yummy. It didnt rise as high as a normal cake..but really I dont think anybody new the differance. Great find if you are looking to cut out some sugar as it uses Splenda Sweetener.

Show me the biggest Rock....

Sometimes when I get home from teaching my beehives on Sundays I want to go find a big rock and hide under it. Sometimes I forget being that age and feeling like what my teachers had to tell me was a waste of time. It is hard to get 12 yr old girls excited about most of the things I am supposed to teach them. Today I had to beg them for answers and participation. I know it will all be important to them someday. It just makes me crazy to think that maybe they will make some of the same mistakes I did. I look at them and see so much potential and such a bright future. Why cant they see what I see?

On to State!

For those of you who dont know. Jeff has been coaching a 9-10 year old all star team this summer. They have been doing down right amazing. They won districts last weekend(as a result the team got to shave my husbands head-YIKES-) and we are headed to state in Vancouver this weekend. Wish this little team luck......they are an amazing group of boys!

The search is OVER!!!

I found this bathing suit at
I finally found that yellow bathing suit I have been searching high and low for. I am praying it will be a little longer on me than the model ( I ordered the top a little bigger). Having a pool in your backyard it just isnt enough to have one bathing suit. So I have retired a few...I am missing a few...and tu-duhhhh. I found one I am in love with finally for this summer. If I am really brave I may post a pic when I get it.....! Yeah for good finds.

Happy 4th of July

Happy 5th of July I guess. We had a quite but nice 4th of July. My plan was to go to the firework show and not waste any of our money on fireworks. Of course Jeff had another idea. I went out to my pool house yesterday morning to find boxes and boxes of Reservation fireworks. So Jeff and I went to lunch at Applebees and then went shorts shopping for him, which was nice. Then we came home and took a 4th of July nap. We then had family over for a bbq....and swimming. We had a fire in our fire pit and roasted marshmellows. Of course Jeff didnt think we had enough sparklers so he had to run and get some more...sparklers...ya right he came back with more bags full. So as soon as it was dark Jeff started his show. We did have one fire that was quickly put out thank goodness. But after about 3o minutes Preston and I had, had we came in and went to bed. I asked Preston this morning what he thought of the fireworks last night and he said "Scarey."

Some things you just cant Replace!

I have created a child that things everything can be replaced. We have replaced many things in his 2 year lifetime...many of which were broken or lost by him. His answer to everything that we cant find or doesnt work is "Lets go buy a new one."
Well, the other night Jeff had all our windows open to cool down the house, I was mortified when I looked up to see Preston sitting in the window seal leaning against the window screen. As we were in my bedroom that is 2 stories up and his landing would have been hard pavement. So, I screamed Jeff ran and got him out of the window and then showed him by doing a demonstration what could happen...Jeff leaned on the screen broke it loose and leaned out and explained that if Preston or dad had fallen out they would be seriously hurt or die. After our heart attack was over..Preston came over to me and questioned, "Daddy will die?" and I said if daddy dies we wont have a daddy anymore. He quickly replied, " We will just have to go to the store and get a new daddy." It didnt matter how much I tried to explain to him that people are not replaceable, he just didnt get it.

It's all about the Money, Honey!!!

So did you all hear the letter from the First Presidency about debt....? The first presidency has been telling us for years to get out of debt but today at church during our third hour..our bishop gave us strict instruction on finances. He told us that the only debt allowable is a modest home, modest transportation, and education. All other items are considered unnecessary debt and we must pay them off. It really put me into perspective. I have been begging my husband for a new car (which I don't really need). And after today's lesson I was put into my place, I wont be bringing up a new car anytime soon. He also talked about the importance of a budget. We don't have a steady income so having a budget is hard. He gave us key counsel, "When you have money spend it..and when you don't stop." This is hard for me because I can always talk myself into believing that a new shirt or new shoes is an emergency and I can always pay it off later. Its going to take a lot of prayer to help me with this one. BTW I got a new calling today..Beehive advisor. I am SUPER excited. I have been in activity days for 4 years. So here's to spending less money and increasing my savings account.

Time Out for Lacey!!!

I had a great weekend getaway. I went up to Spokane with a group of friends Friday afternoon. We spent the aftrnoon shopping and then we ate an amazing dinner at the Onion(best onion rings I have ever had). I have been dying to see the "Other Boleyn Girl" but it hasnt come to where I live so we went to that Friday night. It was NOT the feel good movie of the year! It was not the love story I expected. So after our interesting movie we went to our Hotel.....The Davenport. It was the most beautiful amazing hotel I have ever been to. There was detail in everything. You felt like royalty staying there. We were touring and snooping around the hotel until around 1 am. It was so fun. Saturday morning we got up and went to timout for women..which was amazing. There was such great messages..many of which I am going to begin implementing. The only bad thing about the whole weekend is that Saturday I started feeling sick...SO SICK...I spent all of yesterday in bed, and I am still feeling crumby today. If any of you have the oppurtunity to attend a time out for women I strongly suggest it.

it fits me. My middle name came from my Grandma Arnolds relative..when I was younger
I hated it. I once even voiced infront of my grandmother how much I hated it, but I didnt
know it came from her family. Now that I am older I have warmed up to it. My husband even
calls me "Adele". My husband recently built storage units, and named them Adeles.

Preston James Port- Preston got his first name from my maternal grandfather..I didnt know
him very well he died when I was young. The task of naming him seemed impossible but
when he was born the nurse asked me what is name was going to be and Preston came out, so thats what he is. He got his middle name from my dad and Jeffs dad..they are both named James. (nickname: Pdiddy)

Wheres my Sissy???

I woke up mortified at 5am this morning. I realized that I had fallen asleep watching TV before I put Preston to bed. I was hoping Jeff had taken care of it, but with Jeff you never know. So I ran to Prestons crib and he wasnt in there.....great...I was imagining him roaming the house all night getting into things. The next place I knew to look was Sierra's bed, sure enough he was sleeping soundly snuggled up with his sister in her bed. Sigh of relief. It warms my heart to see how much love Preston has for Sierra. He asks all day "where is my sissy?" and when she has friends over he is their shadow and often comes to me wearing makeup and nail polish from a night hanging out with the girls. I know it isnt always fun for Sierra to have to deal with a 2 year old brother...but it is a relationship that is irreplaceable. She wont realize it until she is older. Now that I am older I cherish the times I had with my youger brothers. Cory always used to go on adventures with could find us trekking the backyard, trying to swim in the neighbors pool(cory ruined that one jumping in the pool with the pool cover still on), and on Sunday we would play restaurant and make food out of dirt and plants..gotta love Sundays. Bryce well he was always my favorite volunteer for hair and makeup, he would allow me and my friends to dress him like a girl and everything....his willingness used to make us nervous but I think he turned out pretty darn well. Bryce was also always singing and making us laugh. Trenton, well he shared a room with me from birth to about 4 I think. It was so hard when my parents made me break that habit..when I think of Trenton I think of Power Rangers..he was obsessed. I loved taking care of him like he was my own. And Alex, well I was so excited the day Alex came to us..we wanted him for so long. He was like 1 1/2 but we treated him like a baby for a while because we wanted it to last. He always said "HUH?" And he is the only 2 year old I knew that could down a Burger King Whopper!!!! Good times!

Traditions here I come......

I am in love with the store Traditions in Sugar City Idaho...I am so excited to be going this spring. I got a tile with our name on it from here that I put on our front porch but during a windstorm it I am in need of a replacement. When I think of Sugar City I think of if you are ever in Rexburg, mosey about 3 miles to Sugar City and visit this wont regret it but your pocket book might.

Cutest easter eggs EVER!!!

I came across the cutest easter eggs on Martha. I love the polka dot, and the intial egg...Usually with my kids as fancy as we get is half the egg being one color and the other half another. But this inspires cute to eat!

Home-made Peeps!

Peeps are on of my easter favorites! Because I love marshmellow and I love sugar. I was browsing on Martha Stewart and I found a recipe for homemade peeps. They may be alittle time consuming...but they are "Oh so cute." Follow the link:

1 Gold medal, 1 Silver Medal!

So yesterday was a great day of wrestling. Dalton got first (the gold medal) winning all three matches, and Dakota got Second winning his first two..and losing his last match but with great effort (the silver medal). It was a great day because Cody medaled for the first time...he didnt even know what to do when he got onto the platform. They are always winners in my book...but yesterday they had a medal to show for it.
