HOPE - to enjoy a full night sleep, to have dairy products again
LOVE - hearing the garage door open bc that means that daddy is home! Watching Camden smile and coo!
SHOWS - On the off season, Heath and I got hooked on all the Scrub reruns. I also enjoy the Biggest Loser, American Idol, Lost, The Office and Psych
FRUSTRATION - Trying to figure out a whole new diet for Jace (just found out he's allergic to milk, eggs, wheat, soy, tree nuts, tomatoes, corn and shellfish.) Oh, and never being able to keep this house clean
SCRIPTURE - Alma 26:22 - Yea, he that...exercise faith, and bringeth forth good works, and prayeth continually without ceasing--unto such it is given to know the mysteries of God.
PROJECT - making another hooter hider for the sister i visit teach
READ - anything and everything about food allergies, hyperactivity and eating right
DISCOVERY - homemade applesauce. I love it.
RANDOM FACT - I am a game show junkie. I tried out for Deal or No Deal last year. Have wanted to be on Family Fued for as long as I can remember. Can only try out for Millionaire if I'm in NY, so that's not going to happen. I think it all comes down to.... why not me? If they can go and win all this free money...why not me?

Jace and his cousin, William played all the time!!! They were inseperable. They sure knew how to get into trouble together.
Can't forget the 14 hour car ride to AZ. We went all the way through over night and will never do that again. Whew, it was a lot of driving. The kids did great but the parents, well, we were zombies the next day. We got a hotel in Santa Fe for the way back. good choice.
Heath's Grandma FeFe (Eunice May Sheffield Reed) died on January 15,2009. We were able to go to Arizona for the funeral. I'm so lucky that I knew this sweet woman. Heath loves his grandma so much and it was always a joy to go over and see her. These pictures were taken right before we moved. She was having some rough times so we both had a feeling we probably wouldn't see her again. I'm getting teary just thinking of it, but when we left her bedside she just gave Heath the biggest hug and held him forever. She didn't want him to go. Heath gave the talk at the funeral and I thought I'd write some things down he said: She was a woman of faith, virtue, charity and dignity. He quoted the scripture in Cor. about charity and shared the story about the good Samaritan.
Here are some of her responses to some questions asked a while back.
What's your favorite color: "Mother always put us in blue, but I always wanted to wear pink." What's your favorite food: "If you put it in front of me, I'll eat it."
I feel grateful that we have people pass through our lives and leave imprints on our hearts. We love you Grandma!

CAMDEN was sure spoiled too...but not with presents. His aunts held him any moment of the day that I wasn't feeding him. Infact, I believe the correct senario included me nursing and then handing off the baby to the first eager open arms, which of course induced a few small fights over who gets him next. I LOVED seeing everyone love him and want to hold him. It was so nice. Now, I'm paying for it with a baby that never wants to be put down but we're trying to get back in the swing of things. I, of course, am missing family so much and realizing how much I want to live closer.
This move has been good in so many ways but truly I think Heath and I realized how important it is to us to have some family somewhat nearby. We had a blast doing the Christmas pageant (had to bribe Jace with egg nog to wear the outfit), playing Wii and Rock Star, frisbee golf - always a family favorite, we also had a field goal kicking contest, which Heath won - 35 yards!!! Went to the stake center and played bball with family friends while the kids played around and the women chatted, ate yummy food of course, and overall just enjoyed eachother's company!! The boys got in a few rounds of roof pong, as well.
