A Really Great Invention...

This is an innovative new product made by a girl on my Moms' Forum. She is the cute pregnant one in the link.

We went to a little Halloween party in Scera Park this afternoon. My online Moms' forum put it on. It was fun to meet some of the other ladies that I've been talking with online and see their darling little kids. My kids were absolutely adorable! Uly was a Scary Skeldotin. Magnus was a little black belt karate guy and Gar was supposed to be Spongebob, but he wasn't too into wearing the costume today. That's OK. They were all adorable.

Here's a picture of Ben and Uly. Ben's an exercise guy who needs to go to the gym more often, complete with enhance gut. Bella is my cousin Kristina's oldest daughter and she was Raggedy Anne but she didn't want to wear her cute red pig tail braids. Kristina ended up putting the red wig she had wore on Bella. It was super cute. You can see her and Uly holding hands. Aren't they too much?

Then we picked up Junkie's and went back to Kristina & Ben's house to eat it. Yummmm!!! It's been something like 4 months since I've had it.

Now I'm way tired... I should go to sleep.

Uly & Gar eating Green River watermelon in Moab, UT.

My cute mom.

My daddy.

We went to Moab for a Walker family reunion this past weekend. It was a blast. My Walker relatives have always been a mystery to me. My dad's dad died when my dad was 2. My grandma remarried and ended up moving away from that area. I had heard stories about my dad's cousins but this was the first time I'd really ever met them (with the exception of his cousin Ron, whom I had met in SoCal once). So I met a ton of relatives I had never met before and saw some beautiful scenery. My dad's cousin Jimmy has two daughters - Tammy and Sherry. They are about my age, maybe a little older. They are really nice. I'm looking forward to seeing them next year at the reunion.

We stayed in Green River, about 40 minutes away, because there was a bike marathon scheduled for Sunday. That meant that all the hotels were pricey and booked. We couldn't even get a room for Saturday night. We are planning on going next year and making a long weekend of it, with some planning. We want to go to the Arches National Park and play around the Moab area. We could see the Arches way off in the distance from the road but didn't have time to stop and check them out.

New Neighbors

So we have new neighbors. If you don't know, we live in what's called a Twin Home. That's basically a fancy term for duplex. We share a wall. The garage, laundry room, little bathroom and our bedrooms all share walls.

We live in what I now call the California Twin. Our neighbors are from California too. More specifically, Santa Monica. We all have CA license plates. They are really nice and have 4 kids.

I made three different batches of cookies on Saturday - carrot, peanut butter and cream cheese. They were all really good. I filled a little brown lunch bag full with the booty and brought it over to them tonight as kind of a welcome to the neighborhood gift. They came over a little bit later and thanked me and visited a bit. I thought it would be nice to get a bunch of cookies if I were moving in. I like cookies. Plus I am never really friendly with my neighbors. I thought maybe this time will be different. So I had to do something nice. Cookies are nice, I think. At least they are yummy...

On another note, I lost my sports bra and so I can't go to my exercise class in the morning. I'm going to order a new on online. I should have more then one. It's silly not to. Especially now that I'm trying to be more active. I think it might be in the washer. I left a load in there to soak and forgot about it. It's too late to wash the load since we now have neighbors. Our washer is really noisy and I don't want to wake them up so I am just going to have to skip my class. I'm really bummed about that but it is just the way it's going to have to be. I'll have to make a concerted effort to be more active tomorrow. I'm going to do a DVD though. I dare you to do a Richard Simmons DVD. Don't underestimate him...

Well that post didn't work! I was trying to use Word to publish from but apparently I couldn't upload photos. Hmmmm... I'm still trying to get this figured out. It's cute though, istn' it? My kids constantly need their faces washed. But they are mine and I love them!

Riding the Rails...


Grandmom & Grandad Walker took us to ride the Soldier Hollow Express. It was so much fun. Uly and Gar are train nuts and so this was complete bliss for them. They were totally blown away. This was their first real train riding experience. We're totally going back! Especially since they have this cool grandparents discount. Kids + an adult = grandparents ride for FREE!!! How cool is that. Yeah, that sealed the deal; we're going back for sure!

This layout was fun. I used some filmstrip templates. I haven't used any templates previously. Ben gave me a few design pointers. He's so good at this. I am excited to keep practising. I hope one day I can be nearly as good as he is.

Early Morning Exercise

I woke up super early this morning and went to a Jazzercise Step Aerobics class. It was super fun and it totally kicked my butt! But I'll be back on Wednesday. It's three days a week and it's so early the sun was just coming up as I was leaving.

I'm really excited about it. It is a great opportunity for me to have some scheduled time to exercise. I think this will really help me get healthy.

Here's to Health!!!
