Some Serious Update Time!!

Okay so a lot has gone on in these last couple weeks. I have totally been slacking at this whole blog and am sorry for everyone who checks frequently and there's still no update.....Let me start with Valentines day!! Peyton and I had a great one. We hung out all day and did take out for dinner. It was fun and I probably had the cutest date on the block!
Peyton had her first party as well at school and had so so much fun. If you would like to see pics from her school party and see more pics you can go here

Then just 3 days after Valentines day Peyton turned 3. She ended up going to school that day and taking cupcakes for everyone to celebrate. Since Joel was still out of town Peyton and I had a low key birthday that night by having a picnic in the living room watching her new movie that daddy got her.

Then the day after her birthday my parents came to town! It was there anniversary that day so we all went out to dinner at the Melting Pot! It was great fun. I only have 1 pic of that night and my scanner is not working so you'll just have to imagine the fun night we had that night.

The day following that we headed down to Twin Falls to meet the rest of my family there and celebrate my Grandmas 90th to soon come as soon as my dad emails them to me! While down in Twin we did a little celebrations for Peyton's birthday with this wonderful cake that she HAD to have......

A week after all that fun Joel came home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't even tell you how great it is to have him home. He has been home for just over 24 hours and I am still trying to get use to having him here. We had missed him SO SO SO SO much and are so glad he is safe and home with us for good.

Which brings me to today.........Joel and I decided to wait to have Peyton's friend party so he could enjoy the fun and screams from 3 other little girls!! Peyton decided she wanted to have a Tinker Bell party. It was a lot of fun to plan and a lot of fun to have her little friends over. Here are the pics from day and all the fun we had

This was the table decor. Each little girl got her own wings and wand just like Tinker Bell

We had lots of yummy food the two favorites were Grandma Bigg's fruit dip and Tegan's famous pasta salad!

The girls being crazy and having fun!

They had so much fun playing and NOT eating there lunch

Peyton was super excited, just look at her face

Peyton was struggling to blow out her candles

Then it was present time

Peyton got a lot of fun stuff from her friends! She had several birthday celebrations and had fun with all of them. Thanks to everyone who made her birthday special.

Chinese Eye Test

My sister sent me this in an email and I thought it was funny enough to post!!!

If you cannot decipher anything, then try pulling the corner of your eyes as if you were Chinese.

Yes, Im Alive!!

I know it's been so long since I have posted so here goes......
Since I got back from Washington I have been really busy playing catch up at work. I picked up an extra day for the last couple weeks to help me finish all my reports at work. Today is the first day I felt caught up. Leaving for 2 whole weeks really puts a bind in things.
I have also been super busy with projects!!! I have been counting down the days till Joel gets home and to keep me busy I have found new projects to be working on. One of my favorites that I did was this.........

I also have gotten so bored I had to purchase this great piece of furniture at Tuesday Morning for an unbeatable price

I always seem to find myself organizing and re-arranging something to pass the time........Did I mention Joel comes home in 19 days?!

We have also found time to make our own crafts and have fun with this........

We have found many ways to stay busy, but at the same time we are SO ready for Joel to come home!!
