So I just remembered that I know how to cook and we just realized we are poor so I've been cooking at home A LOT. And it's fun! I loooove when the kids like what I eat. And if I can sneak onions into something without Amron noticing I feel on top of the world.  I don't know why. Maybe I just want to prove to him that he's bring unfair about onions.

Graham: he's so big. And he's so smart and he's so sweet.
Max: I'm in love. He's insisted on being called Maxwell. And I love it. He loves his big brother and his big wheel.
Sadie: I don't even know what to say. She kills me. Every time she opens her little mouth.

Lately I've been into decorating. We painted a chalkboard wall again. I love it. And I made a pallet sofa. And I hot glue gunned the fabric on. How wrong is that? So wrong but so easy!
My friend showed me a fish market! It's so close to my house, cheap and fresh! I think I'm going back tomorrow too!

The last few days I've been in a little funk. Like I can't get focused. I feel some heavy planning and scheduling coming on.

Anyways! Don't you love this? Me too.
Birth is not only about making babies. It's about making mothers; strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and believe in their inner strength.

life and a baby shower

We threw a baby shower for my good friend Chelsea and it turned out so cute (I mean do you see those gold balls?!). Thank you pinterest!
Life has been good!! I still like Mexico. My kids get cuter and funnier everyday. I don't know how it's possible. I mean, they are stinkers. For sure. But adorable at the same time.
The thing I'm most excited about right now is: ASHLEY, CHASE, and BIZ and coming to visit in 9 days!!!! (Sister, Brother, Niece.)
I got called to be a nursery teacher in our ward (church). It helps me with my Spanish soooo much! The lessons are so basic that it's perfect for my level of Spanish right now. I know so much more Spanish then I did when I first got here but it's almost more frustrating because I'm so close yet so far to actually being able to hold a real conversation where I express my feelings and am able to explain what's really going on.
I've started training for a marathon. I love it. It's what I need in my life right now. I feel so great when I can check off how far I ran for the day. And it's so good for me to do something hard and accomplish it. Also! My whole family is going on a cruise in December. I'm so, so excited! And if I ever stop eating large amounts of tacos and chocolate I might lose some weight. So, probably not!
Also I can't stop thinking about Christmas with my kids. Last year Maxwell and Sadie were a little too young to get it. This year they get it. We found this baby princess doll this is Merdia from Brave. We are getting it for Sadie. Amron can't sleep at night he's so excited. He's been to Costco twice to look for it. Yea, it's gonna be a good Christmas.

Things are really exciting right now.
