I don't know who was more excited about the tractors, Parker or Crystal.

We also talked to Tori & Lindsay over the Internet. We miss them so much, but we are so happy that they are having a great time.

HaPpY vAleNtInE's DaY

Parker's Valentine gift was a camo jacket, he loved it because his friend Tate has one just like it.

Payton's Valentine gift was a pink sparkly leotard, and matching tights (but she insisted on wearing the red ones.) I wish I would have been quicker with the camera, because her Daddy was imitating the way she was standing and making fun of her. I rivaled the "Hey Cow!" Levi.
I curled Payton's hair for picture day and then went to work and left her with Jer in good faith that she looked cute for her picture. Cross your fingers



We had a Valentine's Day waffle breakfast at church this morning, and we were suppose to bring some canned food so of course we forgot. So when we got home Jer went down stairs to get some food and I was going to take it back to the church. Now when I get food to give away I grab a few cans and don't put much thought in to. Jer comes upstairs and hands me the bag and asks "Do you think two meals is enough?" I was like huh, I am so not cooking these we are just giving them away. Jer had gone down to the storage room and gotten two full meals to give away, Chili, fruit cocktail, and corn and then a can of stew, green beans, and some Mandarin oranges. I was so inspired by my husband I have always thought of myself as a thoughtful caring person, but the thought that he put into a food drive made me smile and be thankful for such a loving, thoughtful husband.
We are going to make chocolate covered strawberries now, and then Jer and I have a hot date tonight. We are going to the rodeo, and then a concert, I hope everyone has some fun plans today.
Love Ya,
Stacy

What's with all the attitude you would think Jer and I are raising models?

Parker's First Wrestling Match


Today was Parker's first wrestling match, it was so fun to watch. I loved watching Jer too, he was almost more excited than Parker.

Oh No! I don't think Jer is ready for this!

This morning as we were getting ready for the day Payton told her Dad "Just get dressed before you come and get me from school." She is such a spunky little thing, and she didn't appreciate her Dad in his Popeye PJ's and cowboy boots. I can't believe that she is already worried about her parents embarrassing her. We are a little worried about the future.

Prayers Are Answered












First of all I would like to Thank everyone for their prayers. My Aunt Sandy & Uncle Lyman who are serving a mission in Cape Verde received the large box that I sent to them over two months ago. Thank you everyone it means so much to me. It is also such a great example of prayers being answered to my children . It is nice to have them pray for something that they understand, and then to have Lyman and Sandy e-mail to say that they received the box. Plain and Simple prayers answered.
Jer took these pictures and I asked if I could put them on my blog and then I ran out of time. Then he checked the blog and his feelings were hurt because I hadn't put them up. So here they are, I'm always a day late and dollar short, but at least I give it try.

My very own Domestic Diva



So now that Jer's rig has been put out to pasture, he is being the stay at home Daddy. Not to much different than just having his two weeks off, except now I go to work. Jer has been so helpful, he has made dinner, (stuffed pork chops, and fried chicken and mashed potatoes.) taken Parker to wrestling practice, picked Payton up from Pre-school, and has also caught the laundry up. I love my husband so much and he works so hard for our family, not to mention he is really hot. Even though he does a great job at home he is still going crazy, poor guy he would really like to get back to work. We are working on cooking lessons, and the other day he had me teach him the notes on the piano. Doesn't he look so cute sitting at the piano, I think he is on to something. I always joke with him that my next husband is going to be a singer, because that is about the only thing that Jer isn't great at. Maybe if he played at the piano I would keep him?
Jer I love you so much, Thank you for all that you do.

We watched the super bowl, mostly for the commericals

We watched the super bowl tonight I was wanted the Cardinals to win just because they were the underdogs. There were some really great plays, but we loved the commercials. Our favorites were the Doritos's commercials, but Parker was all about the Budweiser commercials, because of the horses. I had to laugh when Jer when he saw the G.I. Joe movie trailer, his mouth dropped open and his eyes brighten, he then looked at me and said sorry but that looks so good. My husband is such a kid! Bridgestone had good commercails to and we laughed at them. I have to admit that my job isn't that bad after watching the monster job ads. When the game ended and the cardnials lost my kids consoled me so sweet. Did your team win? and what was your favorite commercial?
