The Coolest Daughters!

I decided you know when your daughters are cool when instead of having a screaming contest at the table while waiting for lunch they decide to have a roaring contest! For not being boys their sound effects are surprisingly amazing! They definitely get it from their dad not me!
So I'm actually attempting to see if I've figured out how to add pictures.....If you see one I've finally got it..if not.. don't laugh!

Happy Halloween!!!

Yeah, I know!!! Lay off already!! It's been ages since I last blogged. We've been busy and I was also introduced to the world of facebook so that has been eating up all my computer time. If you aren't on there, I would suggest you sign up. It's a lot of fun and a great way to keep in touch with people. Some people compare it to Myspace and that's why I avoided it for so long, but Facebook is WAY better. It's just not as...for lack of a better term...dirty.
So anyways, I apologize for being bad at blogging and will try to do better. Here are some pics of Halloween and some random pics of the girls. ENJOY!!
Of course my girls, being the animal lovers that they are, had to stop and see the kitty.  Do you think they were afraid of it at all?

Mariana wanted to be a kitty again like last complaints from us!!!

Some pics of Jada

A Latin Weekend by Jaycee

So as most of you know I'm not the blogger in our family but maybe when I get released from being Young Women's president and I don't have 19 piano students and two active girls I hope to find some time to really enter the blogging world!!
That being said I took a really long nap today so I not only have time but energy, YAHOOO for me! Now on to what I really wanted to say...
This weekend was seriously so fun for me! My wonderful mother in law took "her girls" to a concert on Friday night at Arco Arena (like utah's Delta Center) to see her favorite latin singer,
Luis Miguel! Yea, never heard of him either but hey the tickets were free and it's always fun to have a girls night with my in-laws! Maybe some of your hubby's have heard of him if they served in South or Central America. Anyway, didn't understand too much (Coach Steve would have been highly disappointed in my spanish skills!) But Luis is seriously a hottie and has a great voice! (Yes, Luis Miguel is probably pushing 40 but HOT is HOT, right?!)
Saturday night it was my turn to plan our couples date night (we have a few friends that we don't see as often as we'd like so we plan special dates other than dinner & a movie. I decided to
sign us up for Beginning Tango at the Sacramento Ballroom!! Yes, the husbands weren't as excited as us girls were but it seems all we had to do was remind them on how the tango was highly sexual and they were in!! It was only $7 per person for the class, what a deal right? (cheaper than a movie here) WE HAD A BLAST! Personally I think my husband was the best! At least I feel like he kept his Frame up the whole time! IT WAS HOT!! Then went to midtown Sac. for some dessert and drinks!! David will hopefully post some pics. but I highly recommend to every couple to find something like this in your town. We're celebrating five years of marriage next week and two kids later I love feeling like we did when we were dating!
love always,

Hey all, we have been SUPER busy lately with family, work, school (yes I said school...I'll have to blog about that later),callings etc... you know the drill, but I wanted to hurry and post some pics of my girls. 

Jada was sitting in a chair and eating an apple one day and I thought she looked really cute, so I snapped a few pics...

Mariana has been taking gymnastics.  Here she is looking all serious for some reason right before leaving for class.

Luckily Mariana is taking after her Dad when it comes to computers.  She loves to do activity's on the Playhouse Disney website.  I love to watch her little hand point and click.. so cute!
Again, Jada seems to be drawn to mud.  Little booger...haha

Random Pics

Hey all, I promised Jaycee that I would post some pics of our girls so here are a few random pics.  We definitely have to take more pictures than we have been lately!  For the first time I didn't have too many to choose from.

Mariana LOVES all animals.  She pleads with us all the time now to get her a horse so she can ride it.  At least she says "please" right?

Jaycee let Jada go outside to play after the sprinklers had been on.  I'm glad to see Jada obeyed Jaycee's order to stay away from the wet area.

I don't usually post about movies and all that stuff, but this past Monday, Jaycee and I went to The Dark Night and I must say, it is THE BEST movie I have seen in a long time. I think it may have even crept into my top 5 movies of all time. Yes, I am a Batman geek to begin with, but this movie seriously impressed me. Batman Begins was a strong start and Christopher Nolan did not let down with The Dark Night. There is tons of action, plot twists, great character development, EXCELLENT acting, and the score to the movie is absolutely beautiful and moving. Okay.... did I just type that out loud?? haha! No really, I'm a HUGE fan of Danny Elfman who did the music to the original Batman movie that Tim Burton directed, but Hans Zimmer may have topped him with this one.

Oh yes, and the whole Heath Ledger thing....I went in to the movie not really knowing what to expect because the trailer didn't show much and I didn't want to get caught up in all the hype with him passing and all that, but HE WAS BRILLIANT!!!!! He blew Jack Nicholsen out of the friggin' water with his performance as the Joker. This is kind of sad but I wasn't too torn up over his death before, but now I am because they were going to use him again in later films!!!!! BUMMER!

The other night I went and saw it for the second time with my brothers James and Kenji and some guys from our Elder's Quorum. I sent out a mass email to all the guys calling it a "scrap-booking" night since the women always have their nights when they take off for hours and leave us with the kids. I can't remember the last time I saw a movie twice in the theaters, if ever, but it was worth it.

Never Ending Sweeping & Mopping . . . by Jaycee of course!

So Yesterday I swept my kitchen floor then got down on my hands and knees with a bucket of soapy water and mopped.
The pleasure that went through me after the job was completed is kind of depressing. What is it about a clean floor that makes a house wife so joyful?! And then today as cereal was thrown, milk was spilt and the outside was brought into the inside by the dog, a ting of depression swept through me! So now I'm just wondering, "Am I the only one out there that can't keep their floors clean longer than 12 hours at a time and what is the secret of keeping that Joyfulness with me longer? Will it always be so fleeting?!!
One Mothers Plea to the next!
(I'm just a little dramatic today if you can't tell!)

Memorial Day

For Memorial Day we went camping with our good friends the Thomas' and Amavisca's up near Nevada city.  It was a great time.   Clint brought his quads so we were able to take the kids out.  I thought my girls would be scared but the only one that got scared ended up being Jaycee!!  Mariana just kept yelling "faster Daddy!" 
It was a little chilly up there and luckily it only rained a bit.  Me and Joseph get the award for manliest men, we jumped into the lake there that had to be the coldest water I have ever been in.  Yeah were studs... or just idiots.

The girls were filthy after a few hours.  Nice snotty face

Okay, if you're wondering what the little black hairy thing in the picture is with the girls, well this is Oscar our new dog.  He will be for a while at least (I don't feel like explaining cause its late).  Anyway, we have him for now and I have to say he has been a lot of fun and the girls LOVE him of course.

Jada's breakfast this morning that she decided to dump on herself

Jaycee's First Blog

I know right....Jaycee's actually blogging something! It's not THAT great but here it goes..........  We had an awesome Stake Relief Society Party (workshops, Earings and Card Making, yummy lunch....NO KIDS!) two weekends ago and wanted to share some major finds. First, However long you've been married this book "1001 Ways to be Romantic" has great
ideas on how to keep a loving, sometimes sizzling, relationship going! When we discussed it we realized that what's "romantic" to a guy could just be to  surprise him with a six dollar burger at Carls Jr.!  The second book I wanted to recommend is called "Clutters Last Stand". It was a great work shop on how most of our stuff just gets shuffled from room to room (so me!) Getting rid of the clutter changes life temporally and spiritually as well.
No Pictures! Just check out these books out! See ya

Mariana the GREAT

Last night Mariana decided she wanted to do magic after watching the end of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.  So Jaycee helped her make a pig disappear and reappear.   As you can see in the video, Mariana is pretty surprised and impressed by her own magical abilities.  Make sure you watch through the end where Mariana takes a bow.  We don't even know where she learned to do that!!


Last week the temperature went into the 100's so after I mowed the lawns me and Mariana turned the sprinklers on and ran through them.  

So if you have a Nintendo Wii and you haven't bought Mario Kart, I would suggest that you do so.  It is a blast!!!  That's all we have been playing lately and Mariana LOVES it.  She even loves just watching me play and whenever I win she gives me a high five and a thumbs up.   Here is a pic of  Jaycee and Mariana playing last night.  Both of them seem pretty into it.
Here is a pic of Jada I took.  While she was eating I decided to see if the Harry Potter glasses fit her and sure enough...

Mother's Day

We had a nice Mother's Day.  I woke up early and made breakfast.  Jaycee always likes Sheri's Berries for any occasion but you end up paying like 12 dollars for 2!  So me and Mariana decided to make our own.  We made 30 chocolate covered strawberries for Jaycee and I don't know if she's even going to be able to finish them. 

My Mom wanted all of us to have a picnic up at the temple so Dad made us all sandwiches and we enjoyed the beautiful weather and the scenery at the temple.  Here are some pictures I took

80's Music is AWESOME!!!

I don't know why I started making this video but jaycee catching me while I started a fake guitar solo was classic. If you know me, you know I'm a dork....if you didn't know, well here is the proof. Enjoy and make sure you stick it out to see Mariana's cameo.

We got a new computer...its one of the new iMacs.  Yes I am a mac nut.  You know what they say...once you go Mac, you never go back.  Oh I'm SOOOO clever hahaha!! Okay maybe not, anyways it has a built in camera so Mariana and I one night had some fun with a program called photo booth.  It takes a bunch of pics in a row and here are a few of them.  Do you think we had just a little bit of fun?  I think so
