1st and it again!!! it or leave it!?
The boys are having a blast playing for the Cowboys this year. They are becoming quite the little players.
However, I am not so sure how much I like it. Practices everyday, sometimes twice, games twice a week, not to mention the change in beverages and diet we have had to make. Wow, it's a lot of work!
I know, I complain a lot about football, but in reality, I love it. There isn't anything more fun than watching my boys run up and down the field playing and having a good time. GO COWBOYS!!!!
Bitter sweet...
Today was the first day of school. Jayce and Alek couldn't hardly wait to get out the door. We were at the bus stop about 20 minutes early! I am glad they are so excited about another year of school. This is sure to be their best year yet.
I am having a hard time adjusting. I am all sorts of confused. One minute I am so relieved that the dishes stay clean and the living room straightened up that I could laugh, and then the next minute I am crying waiting in anticipation for me playmates to get home. I worry that
I didn't do enough with them during the summer, yet I am exauhsted from all the running around and playing we have done. So now you see my dilema. I can't decide how I feel! Getting used to school is going to be an adjustment, but I am excited to see them learn and grow.

Ready or not...

Well, here we are, another school year.
Jayce and Alek are going in to the 5Th grade. I can't believe it. This is their last year of elementary.
When we registered them they were in different classes (per last years teacher's recommendation), but we had to make some adjustments that put them in the same class with their best friend Aaron. Sorry Mr. Hunting!
This is sure to be a great year. It's been a little emotional for me. My boys are growing up way to fast. By this time next year they will be passing the sacrament and preparing to enter into middle school.
I guess when I had kids I didn't prepare myself for them to grow up. I never imagined myself as a mother of pre-teens, let alone teenagers. I just expected them to be babies forever. Of course they have a different agenda. Alek reminds me on a daily basis that he is no longer a baby, and that he can do things on his own. More often than not you can hear Alek saying "I'm not a baby anymore mom I can do it myself!" It breaks my heart that thhe don't need their mom to do things for them anymore, but at the same time I love watching them grow into independent young men.
My boys make me smile and make my heart happy. They constantly amaze me at how grown up they are becoming. I worry all the time that they will make good choices and friends, and they always do. I am so proud of them.
They are becoming quite the comedians too. Just last night I heard them whispering to each other "no, no, don't tell mom, we can tell her in the morning", of course that sparked my interest. I asked them "what do you want to tell me!" Alek quickly responded "how awesome you are mom!" What a smart "Alek". I was laughing to hard to ask them what they really wanted to tell me. I guess I will never know. I think that was the plan.
I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable school year. Don't forget to kiss your kids, and tell them how much you love them every morning as they walk out the door.

Eclipse and Eclipse Movie News
97 days and counting...
New Moon is almost here, and it's time to get our sweatshirt orders in. We have a couple different options this year. You can get a regular hoodie sweatshirt, a zip up a hoodie, or a 1/4 zip up with a collar.
The slogan we have decided to have sewn on the sweatshirts is "Real men sparkle" in silver (Thanks mom). We have choosen black sweatshirts, but you can do whatever you would like.
We have to have the orders in by September 1st, and the cost depends on the sweatshirt type that you choose, but no more than $30.00 (that's on the high side. Last year they were only $20.00).
If you want one please email me at, or leave a comment on my blog. I will need the size you want, what kind of sweatshirt you prefer, and color if you choose to do something other than black. They should be done around October 20th. (I will post a picture of the sweatshirt so you can see what they will look like as soon as my sample is done, it should be anyday now)
Also, if you want to attend the premiere with us let me know so I can get a ticket count. There will be quite a few of us so be prepared for a big group. I will need the money for the tickets and the sweatshirts around October 1st. Tickets are usually $8.50
I can't wait!!!

Happy Birthday Jayce and Alek...

11 years ago I was 7 months pregnant and excited for the arrival of mine and Grant's twin boys! On the evening of August 9, 1998 I went to bed just like every night. I woke up at mid-night when I thought I wet the bed, then quickly realized that my water had broken. Shocked, excited, and scared, we called the hospital to let them know we would be arriving. I was admitted to the hospital shortly after 12:30 a.m. and Dr. Larsen came to asses the situation. He was a little nervous at how early they were, but assured me that with current technology the boys had a good chance. So with that being said, we impatiently waited for them to come into this world.
On August 10, 1998 at 2:33 p.m. Jayce was born. He was 3 lbs 11 oz, 17 1/2 inches. He didn't make a noise, but he was very curious about his new surroundings. Jayce was little but healthy. He stayed in the hospital for the next few weeks in an incubator with IV's and a feeding tube to help him stay warm and gain weight. He was so cute, he very rarely cried (boy how things have changed) and loved to just look around.
Alek was born just five minutes later at 2:38 p.m. he was 5 lbs 3 oz, 18 1/2 inches. Alek was a slightly different story than Jayce. First he was born breach and was all beat up from his birth. His collar bone was broken because he didn't want to be born and fought Dr. Larsen, and he wasn't breathing. After what seemed like an eternity Alek finally took his first breath. I didn't get to see him because he was rushed to the NICU, where they discovered he had Hyaline Membrance Disease. Hyaline Membrane Disease is the under development of the lungs. It is very common of the second born of premature twins. Alek was put on a respirator and life flighted to Primary Childrens Hospital. His first five days were touch and go, but Alek was stubborn and fought back(not much has changed). Everyone was shocked when he was taken off the respirator after only five days. The next few weeks he worked on getting bigger, eating, and getting rid of his jaundice.
A few LONG weeks in the hospital and nearly $300,000 later we we got to bring them home. Our lives were turned upside down, and we still haven't recovered.
I love you Jayce and Alek! You are the light of my life. I am so lucky to have two sensitive, loving boys who tell me everyday that they love me. How I got so lucky is beyond me.

Happy Birthday Boys!
