Today was Today

Payton is all jazzed because I told her that Daddy is coming home is seven days, Yeah Seven.
I woke up a 4:30 am and needed a tums bad! Went and took two, and started to build a fire, oh no the fire will have to wait as I rushed to the bathroom, and there I spent the next half an hour worshiping the Porcelain goodess. Gross. I tried to go back to sleep no luck. IM Jer for a little bit, but I don't think I was making much scence, because he said I should get some rest before the kids got up.

I don't know why Parker has to make all the pics look so painful!

I got a little rest, but today was Payton's first day of pre-school so I wanted to get some fun pictures taken. I got everyone fed, showered and dressed, that took forever, and then we started to take pictures. It was 32 degrees outside, so I wanted to try inside, but I like the natural lighting better. I got a few pics and then Parker started to whine, that he wanted to go to school.

Took the kids to school, and got this really great pic of there classroom. Payton was very happy to have a blue chair on her first day. Parker is slid way do in his chair, goofy boy.

I then went home and spent 2 hours chasing Jer's horses all over the place, and finally got them put up. I then made him buy me a Mountain Dew at the Bedrock store. I then only had 30 mins of free time until I had to go and get the kids from school. So much for three spare hours. I had to laugh at Parker, as I was getting ready to leave the school he said "But Mom you will be all alone!" and I was thinking Yeah all alone when was the last time I was all alone?

After pre-school we drove up the hill to Katie and Troys house, and made complete nuceesses of ourselves. It is good to have friend that you can just drop in on, and chat the afternoon away. Thanks Katie! I finally dragged the kids away at 6:30, and decided that Turkey Potpie would do for dinner. Parker told me "Mom this is the best dinner you have ever made." Well I have to give his regards to the Schwan's man.

Here are a few more of our fav pics.

When is Jer coming home?

Parker & Payton all clean and ready for church tomorrow

Okay so I am probably a little grouchy because I hurt so bad, I worked at the farm store, and emptied about 15 pallets. The store is so crowded that I don't even think you could tell. But the good news is that Uncle Paul is feeling better, and looking better too.

Anyway today was suppose to be our cleaning day. Yeah right! Jer was giving me a hard time about working with the horses, so I went out and brushed and grained when I feed today, and spent about 2 hours w/ the horses. Of course it was so cold outside that the kids only spent a few minutes outside, and then went back in supposedly to color, when I got back in the house Parkers hands and feet were black from playing in the soot. Anyway I am about to send the horses or the kids to live w/Jer. Probably the kids.

Then I needed to get things ready for a baby shower, (I hate baby showers) but really love my SIL so I need to do it. Anyway getting things ready and I can't get the kids out of my hair. I was like okay it is Saturday find something to do. So I let them help me paint boxes for RS, which made a huge mess, so I am actually not getting anything done, and am very frustrated. I start cooking dinner, and then Johnny comes over to see if I have done anything with his computer. Um no, I totally forgot that I had it. I am so lame. Anyway he then asked if the Branch Pres has gotten a hold of me, and I say no, and he says do you have anything planned for Sacrament Meeting, and instead of saying "Heck No!, I say I can sure come up with something by tomorrow. AHHH Why can't I say no? Well at least I don't have to teach RS this week or I would be preaching all three hours. Payton is having a really hard time falling asleep, and so I am locked in my bedroom writing this blog, I hope she falls asleep soon so I can change the laundry. Can I just say that I ordered some clothing from Old Navy 3 weeks ago and it is still not here, by the time it comes it will be way to warm. Wow I should have labeled this Thread Frustrated, by Debbie Downer. I miss Jer, and he still has 8 more days.
Happy Saturday (that was sarcastic)

Parker is so smart

Today we were talking about Soccer, which Parker has never played. He asked what soccer was called in Spanish and I told him footbal. He thought for a minute, and said "that's funny the football you watch is played w/hands." , meaning American football. I said "oh how do they play soccer?" And he replied "they kick it with their feet." He then thought for a minute and said "but they use their hands too!" I said "How?", and he replied "When they are taking the soccer ball to the game."
He's a thinker!

Parker playing on the computer
Oh was today a long day, but a good one. Today I woke up in my honey's arms, but not because he got to come home, because I went and saw him in Parachute. He is working an extra week this month. Good for the pay, not so good for the family. Katie just booked the trip to Mexico, so we know where all that overtime will be going. Ethan told Parker about the Pirate ship, and Parker is so excited. I ran errands all over Jct today, and barely made it back to Paradox in time for enrichment. I got back to Paradox, grabbed my boxes of stuff, and then went to Beth's to see the kids really quickly, gave them the pink cookies that they love from Sam's. You should have seen Tucker's eyes he was so excited.

Enrichment went so well the ladies loved the project that we did the sat and laughed and talked together, and ate yummy snacks.

Got home and we were getting ready for bed Payton puts on her boots over her sleeper jammies, and on the wrong feet too!
It was a good day.

I am working at the farm store.

The Eberlings
The Jeremy Mallory Famiy
Levi & Cassie + soon to be baby boy
The Robison Family

We are so blessed to have great friends.
Today I am working at the farm store, for Uncle Paul. He is out of the hospital, and sounds like death warmed over whenever I call, his daughters will be home tonight, so that will make him really happy. My parents are such troopers they have been watching the kids today so that I can work. I hope that they are doing okay.

I know that Halloween was long ago, but we have some great friends in La Sal, and Moab, so I would like to post our family pumpkin pics.

Yeah for Progect SAHM

This is so awesome that someone is kind enough to do this. Check it out, and if you can help, do it!

Icky Day

Last night when I climbed into bed, I was planning out the next day and all the things that I would do. This morning I woke up with a splitting headache, the kind of headache that you remeber for months afterwards. I quickly got out of bed and looked out side, and for sure the clouds were low and thick. I went into the bathroom and took something right away. Went into the livingroom where it was freezing, checked the fire, the log from last night was still in there, so I rebuilt the fire, and went to climb back into bed. I held my pressure point on my hand and that didn't even take the edge off so I got up and showered. That helped some, but ended up back in bed, just about to fall asleep, and the kids came in. I ended up letting them get there own breakfast. They had Begals and juice boxes, not to bad for a 4 and 2 year old. They let me sleep for two hours, and then they strated bugging me. So I got up felt a little better, and wandered into the living room to find Nerds all over the living room floor, where the !@#$%^&* did they get Nerds. Oh well I guess I will just sweep up the big pieces and then bust out the vacuum. I feed the horses this morning, and the little stud colt got a little rambuncous and jumped right on my foot. Megan came over this afternoon to learn how to feed, not very difficult, because she dosen't even have to water. I feel a lot better this afternoon, but I better get better before I go to work at the farm store. Last night my Stampin Up color caddy fell apart, I thought that it had just come unscrewed, but the hole center post broke out of it. I called Stampin Up and they are going to send me a new one. Thank goodness for good companies like them, Unlike Wildblue whom I also contacted today, and may I just say they have the rudest customer service. Anyway they treat you like you are completely incompetent, it dosen't matter if I am or not they still bill my debit card every month. Oh Well it's just money right??? The kids wrote letters to Dad tonight. We hope you like them.

Today was a yelling screaming day

I don't why, but somedays are yelling, screaming days. No matter what I do. I yelled and screamed at the horse Elmer for getting out of the corral, and then as soon as I got him back in he kicked the other horse, so of course I yelled and screamed at him. Parker didn't want to get dressed, so I told him to turn off the tv and go get dressed while I took a shower. When I got out the shower Parker had turned on the TV and hadn't gotten dressed. No one liked what we had for Breakfast, because we were out of Milk. Everyone was happy with lunch, but who can complain about canned soup. Parker missed preschool, because he was having a can't pull it together day. I don't know who I was punishing me or Parker, at least the pre-school teacher got a break.

Parker then got in trouble for standing on the side of his boot, and that is when I took the picture of him slamming the door as he went to the "pouting parking lot" (a mallory thing).

Payton yelled and screamed because I wanted to comb her hair. How awful of me! Anyway this Picture show how that turned out. Her face is not dirty it is lipstick, come on isn't that how you put it on?

Please Pray for Uncle Paul

Uncle Paul has not been feeling well, and we would like everyone to pray for him. He is back in the hospital today. I would tell you what is wrong, but they just don't know. He has lost 30 lbs in the last 3 weeks. He has way to much to do to be sick. He works for the Park Service, he owns a farm store, he runs cattle, he has a cute wife with MS, he has just taken on two foster kids 10 & 2. He has a daughter in law school, she graduates this spring (Go Jessie!), He has a married daughter that teaches special education in the Salt Lake Area. He has a son Ben on a mission in Hungray. His other daughter is going to school at Snow College. He is the Bishop of the Moab 1st ward. He is just the greatest guy! Even though he is true blue Holyoak. We love you Uncle Paul and you are in our prayers. Sorry for the silly picture it is the only one I have on this computer. As you can see I took the pic in the dark, and the flash got him good.

I think Blogs are stupid

I use to think that blogs were stupid, but I hope that this changes my mind. Jer works 7 on and 7 off so we are going to try to keep him updated. Let's see how this works. This may just be the only post that gets put on. Okay so what Blog is complete w/out pics.

This is us, Jer, Payton, Stacy, Parker.

Aunt Megan took this pic for us at Thanksgiving 2006
