So, I posed the question to everyone. If you were a candy bar what would you be and why?
Kendall, would be a FastBreak, because he is always in a hurry!

Dyllon, said he is a AirHead, he can't think of a reason right now, but he is sure it will come to him soon!

Madison she say that she is Goobers, because sometimes she does gross things!

Aushlynn is a MilkyWay, she says that she is always sweet! (right!?)

Avery is a BigHunk, (so yummy) because he is kinda nutty and soft around the middle.

Mindy is a KitKat, because she always needs a break!!

So, what kind of Candy bar are you? Share with us in the comments section!!

Dream Cars

We were lucky to have been able to go to the Utah International Auto Expo. We saw and sat in some really fantastic cars. So many to dream about driving. Each of us picked our favorite cars and got our pictures taken.

Avery loves the Ferrari's

Here is Maddy by a Silver Bentley.

Aushlynn wants to buy this Bentley. It's over a $100,000. Start saving your penny's.

Here is Dyllon and Avery by the new Dodge Challenger. It's quite the Muscle Car.

Here is Kendall by his dream car the 2010 Camaro.

Here is maddy in a formula one. (VROOM!)

Here is Aushlynn in the Formula One. (Watch out crazy driver!)

Awesome looking motorcycle. Avery really liked this.

Maddy loves trucks. She got in every one to check them out.

Wrestle Mania

We got a call yesterday from Dyllon saying that he would be wrestling on the Varsity team that night! He was really excited to get this opportunity. He had been working really hard and had never misssed a pratice. Here he is before the match started. So grown up!!

This next shot is during the National Anthem!

I was all excited for him to get to wrestle with the Varsity team. UNTIL: In the 5th match, one of the players from Kearns was picked up and thrown to the ground. The boy tried to catch himself by putting his arm down. Bad move. You know how your arm is supposed to bend towards your chest? Yeah! Well, his was not bending like that. Can you say severe dislocation or compound fracture. I'm not sure which, but I could not fall asleep last night because it was all that I could think about. I changed my mind about Dyllon, maybe he was not ready to wrestle varsity.

Well, it is his turn now. I am really nervous because he is wrestling one of the team captains from the other team. PLEASE, PLEASE don't get hurt.

Dyllon is holding his own. ( I am holding my breath!)
Dyllon making a great escape!

It was alot of this!

Dyllon had a great chance here! He had him!!!!

Sadly, Dyllon ended up getting pinned in the 3rd period with about 30 seconds left to go. He did a great job for this being his first Varsity match! We are really proud of him! A sophomore wrestling a senior. I am sure that I am going to get a lot of teenage girls visiting my blog to see Dyllon is his tight singlet! So attractive!

Snowy day, Jr. High Carpool and Bus Drivers.

So, this morning turned out to be a quite interesting. Friday morning, my turn for the Jr. High Carpool. I have Fridays off, but I always have to get up early anyway and drive the carpool. The Humanity! The roads of course are snowy, (Side note: I think I need a chiropractic adjustment every time I drive thru the neighborhood. Where are the snow plows??) This in turn causes every parent to drive their child to school. Which in turn causes a back-up in the carpool drop off lane. What more can a person do than wait? OK! Now for the story. I am waiting in the carpool lane with about 50 cars in front of me. We are not moving. There must be a problem up ahead. We have been sitting like this for a few minutes. I look at my options, wait for the car ahead of me to move. To the left, 15 foot mountain of snow, plus not to mention the sidewalk and curb, not my best option. To the right, a seminary building, not a good option either, could included jail time. Behind me, a bus and at least 20 other cars, no good either. Best option, just wait for the car ahead of me. I think to myself, I might be here awhile. UGH!!! I tell the kids in the car: "You guys might want to bail out here, it looks like this could be awhile." Kids exit the vehicle and walk thru the parking lot, etc... Like I said, behind me is a bus. Looks like the one pictured below. What does it do? It honks at me, not once, but three times!! Clearly it sees that I have options. Seriously, What is going thru that drivers head?? It must have been? This car in front of me is holding me up! Why is she not moving? She needs to be moving. I have a bus load of kids, how will they ever make it to school if the lady in front of me is not moving? I could never open the door and let the kids out if I am not in the bus lane. How can I make her move??? Move Lady Move!! Maybe if I honk at her, she will kick that SUV in gear and plow thru the stopped cars in front of her!! Yeah, Yeah that is what I will do. That will make her move!!!

ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? Like that is going to make me move!!!

Just like Deron Williams!! Maybe Someday??

Can you believe that Aushlynn is old enough to play Young Women's Basketball? Here she is waiting for the ball to be passed inbound to her. She pretty much plays just like her favorite player Deron Williams! (Jazz Player.) Right after the ball was inbounded to her she turned around and made a sweet 3 point jump shot. SWISH!!! Nothing but net, it was beautiful. (This is how we invisioned it at least!)
Here she is cheering on her team.

In need of a Tooth Fairy!

I am in need of a good Tooth Fairy. The one that has currently been visiting me is sure to be running out of money. Requirements: Must be able to pay

(Six Teeth in the last 5 monthes.) I can pretty must just wiggle them loose anytime that I want! Doesn't my smile say: "Watch out braces, here I come!!!!
