2008 Cyprus Credit Union Breakfast

One of my amazing New Hires Tommy Fitton

Those Amazing Magna kids. I love you Keithy Poo!
The training and HR magic!

The company I work for is so amazing. Every year those that want to wake up early get to go enjoy breakfast at the Cracker Barrel. It is such a wonderful feeling of christmas cheer and anticipation for the day to come. Everyone gathers together and laughs and eats a delicious meal. What a wonderful thing for a company to do for thier employee's. With times being so hard and getting harder I am so thankful to have the job and friends there that I do. Merry Christmas Cyprus Credit Union! Thanks for all you do for me and our community....

Our Christmas Cake Winner

So we went to the White Family Christmas party on Saturday and they had a cake decorating contest. There were some pretty amazing cakes that came about. We are not the best at these types of things but dang it we tried. We came up with a construction theme of Build Christmas In Your Heart. There are tractors and cranes involved in the building of the tree. Ammon loved it and thought we were the coolest ever. We won the award of wackiest cake. So much fun! Please don't forget to Build Christmas in your heart this year......

Poopy Prizes

So for the past 6 days Ammon has been wearing Big Boy Undapants! This is the most glorious thing that can happen to a mother. Although Ammon is very good at urinating, he is having a very difficult time pooping. He cries and cries the whole time he is on the toilet and says "I can't do it, I'm Scared, my bum is not working, and oh nononono.." So I am a mean mom and won't let him get off the toilet until he pushes out a little nugget. I told him how cool it is when the poo splashes the water. I push with him. I tell him to pretend he is Batman or Spiderman, they are very good pushers... Yet he still cried and screamed and kept asking to get off the potty. So I told him to take deep breaths in through the nose and out through the mouth. He was so cute when he was deep breathing. Then he calmed down a little. Only to start crying again when he started to push. Dang it! So Brian came in and I asked him to give Ammy a blessing. Ammon was so quiet there on the potty for the entire blessing. After he said that Jesus was going to help him. He pushed one time and sure enough came out a nice poo. He pushed again and the deed was done. What a miracle it was... A small miracle but one none the less. I started to cry. God does listen and helps us in times of need. Even on the potty.
Ammon is still scared of going poop. He has held the poo now for 4 days. I don't know what to do. Any advice???

Oh Edward....

So the Blood Van came to our work today. I have never given blood so I decided to give it a try. It wasn't as bad as I thought. The tech that helped me was super nice. I felt fine until I started to get up..... Then it started, the hot flash, the nausea, the weirdness. They had me put ice packs on my chest and drink tons of water and juice. I started to feel better so I got up. Sure enough the heat waves come back and I started to not feel so good. Anyway after about a half an hour I was allowed to leave the blood wagon. It has been about two hours and I am starting to feel normal. I am glad I did it all in all. It was scary feeling like I was going to pass out, but knowing that someone might live with my amazing blood made it all worth it. I just wish it was Edward who was having my blood......

Vacation To Dad's in St. George

We were really missing Grandma Kim and Grandpa Fry so we decided to hop in the ol Kia and take a trip to St. George. Grandpa wasn't able to make it out for Ammy and Sabes birthday so he decided to have a special birthday celebration at thier house for them both. We got there and Dad had a trip to Zions planned for us. We did a little hike up to Weeping Rock and then went to a 3D Dinosaur show that Ammy loved. We had the kids first ever picnic. It was so beautiful in Zions. I for sure want to go back. We then went back to thier house where a Kim put togther the most wonderful birthday dinner full of Dinosaur magic. Uncle Kip made a Dinosaur Cake that was so stinkin cool. Ammon loved it and still talks about it today. After dinner Grandma and Grandpa brought out the presents. Ammon got Spike the giant dinosuar that walks and does amazing tricks. Sabrie got a horsey she can ride on. They love their toys and especially their grandparents and Kipper. We are so thankful for our wonderful family and the memories that we make with them. I love you guys!

Halloween in Cali

We took Ammy and Sabers trick or treating in my Aunt Cyndi's neighborhood. Holy moly, that was so much fun. She lives in a very well to do area, so the candy that was passed out was incredible! It was such a wonderful feeling to trick or treat in 75 degree weather. I love Halloween in California. Ammy loved trick or treating after a few houses. At first he would cry when someone would say he was cute. Sabrie just hung out in the stroller and jabbered. We held out a bag for her too, of course it was really for the adults. Hehehe. We ended up with so much candy and in the space of one week we had every single piece eaten. What are vacations for????

California dreams 2008

So i am really late in posting this but we went to California on October 30th and came home on the 7th of November. My mom, dad, meg, aaron, brian, ammy, sabers, and me had such an amazing time! The reason we decided to go was to see my beautiful cousin Lauren Jones get married in the San Diego Temple. Then we decided to make a trip of it. We went to Disneyland three days, Universal studios, Seaworld, and Knottsberry Farms. I truly had the time of my life. My kids were so good. They both loved Disneyland so much. Ammy loved the Pirates ride and the Winnie the Pooh ride too! Sabrie just pointed at everything and smiled. I loved every ride. TinkerBell flew over the park during the parade and I cried! So magical. I never wanted to leave. I can't wait for the day when I get to go back. Anyway here are some pics from the events.....
