January 25th 2003, the magical day that has forever changed my life. I can't believe another year has gone by. 6 years dosen't sound long,but we have accomplished a lot in those years. 2 moves, 2 babies,death , life! I love this great man with all that I am,he he my one true love.

We were able to get away for the weekend.We went down to LA on Friday,we went to the temple and then Saturday we dropped the kiddos off at Mike's cousins house in Hunington and went out to dinner and a movie. I know this sounds like a small date for an anniversary,but let me tell you,we don't go out on dates often, so this was so fun to actully see an entire movie through, and eat a whole meal without spills and messes.

The day I met Mike,I was smitten.He wore a nice suit to church and that is what caught my attention, At the time being a tender age of 20,most boys my own age were on missions and the boys I knew didn't wear a full suit to church. I was intrigied,who was this mystery man and wear did he come from? Well we talked and set up a date for the following week. When he arrived to pick me up,he had a bundle of dasies and sweetly handed them to me.I was super impressed,on a first date,flowers! oh be still my heart! I had never been treated with such kindness and what a gentelman he was.I couldn't believe I was dating someone with such a good career and a house . But,you know how finiky women can be, I still wasn't in the relationship fully.So, Mike calls me and we are talking and he tell me that this relationship wasn't going anywhere and that we need to stop dating. What? you are calling it off with me,I thought to myself. I couldn't have this! So,I dreaded the thought of loosing him, and that is when it finally clicked. I didn't want to loose him,I loved him! The butterflies were in full force after that,and they still haven't left!

Dear Laundry,
I hate you! You are never done and when I think you are done,someone takes a shower and just adds more to the pile.You are like a bad habit,you are just always there.You know that commercial,I think it is for "swifter", where the old mop keeps peeking around the corner or rings the doorbell and someone is seranading "Baby Come Back", That is what you are doing to me. You must love me so much,you just want me to put you in the warm tub of soapy water and then get whirled around in a tub full of warm air. What ever your reason,I wish you would cut me some slack.Please. And then you expect me to fold you and put you away. You are asking a lot from me!

Towels are the worst!

I try to organize you and make it easier,and this helps,but, for once I would love it if the hamper just stayed empty .

You love to get all dry and warm

But, first you had to take that soapy bath

There is one good thing about you though, you smell so fresh and clean when you are done and how nice it is when a warm towel is thrown around you or to crawl in a freshly made bed with clean sheets. That is the Best.
Although I hate you,I love you at the same time.We wouldn't be anywhere without you. I guess I just have to accept that my life will forever consit of you. So I guess I will say to you Mr Laundry, see you everyday and we will be friends forever,or is it enemies?

I've been a bit in a blog quandry.I haven't had any good ideas for a new post! I went to NIki's blog and she just did a roandom post of things,so that has given me the idea to do a random post about things we have been doing. If you haven't ever gone to Niki's blog,please do so.It is always fun and cute,she was the inspiration for all of us Crum's to start our blogs and we are thankful for that!

I moved the book case underneath the picture,Which came to me from my mom(the picture)I have it's sister of roses picture and mom didn't want this one anymore.So my last trip to Mesa I brought it home,along with all the things for Christmas,which made for a very full back seat. I should have taken a picture. It took us at least 2 hours to figure it out,it was a puzzle.We made sure everything was sequre(sp?) and it made it here in one pieceWhewwww!

Kids just being cute,Pres looked like a snow bunny,we had to have a photo op

Her little hat looks so cute on her,she loves first that was not the case,she was always pulling it off.But,know we walk by it,and she wants to put it on,all that wearing of the bows has given her practice.

We were having some sticker fun,who said stickers were for paper

At our house ,they are for bodies

Hellooooo Everyyyyybody! I am blogging to you all!

Pure Love

We were able to get our family pictures done in November by the fabulous John Walker,who did an amazing Job, and he was able to capture ,what I feel is, priceless.
My family is my true happiness and the reason I feel such so much joy in my life.
I had to hold off on showing these because we gave them out as Christmas presents. Here is there debut.
This is minus 20 lbs for me and about the same for Mike. We have new goals for the new year.The holidays proved to be delicious,maybe a little to delicious. Luckily I stayed the same, so onward and upward. My new goal is 15 more lbs by April 22nd.
