Pictures- not of the kids though ;)

Friday, November 30th, 2007

We’ve got our camera back from Cannon.
Actually we got a camera of equal or greater value that has been refurbished, I can say it’s nicer than ours was, since they didn’t have the parts or whatever.
This makes it nice for me cause I was wanting a new one,  but couldn’t justify why since  ours still worked, or was getting fixed for free.
(I was kinda glad it stopped working thinking I could get  a new one, but Jon researched that they fix them if it was a defect. Anyways.)

I sewed my first hooded towel this week. We got tons of towels from our wedding. This was the only ivory towel, hand towel and wash cloth so I thought I’d make a hooded towel for the girls and then I thought I’d give it has a gift. I like it a lot and almost want to keep it.




So I spent money on ribbon and thread and that was it. I’m giving it has a baby shower gift for a baby shower I won’t be able to attend.
Too bad all our other towels don’t have hand towels to make hoods or they are not colors I’d use for kids.
But I really liked how it turned out and I plan on making hooded towels  as Christmas gifts for the girls that I wanted to make back in April for Easter. 🙂  My mom never embroidered their names on them, so I may just add ribbons.

When I was doing a little research on how to do it I came across many sites. One site had that they’re easy and if she needs a baby shower gift in a pinch she uses towels they have.
I thought that was yucky.
Used towels as a gift, just sewn together. Gross.

Also Here’s also a picture of the shelf I bought and put together almost completely on my own.


It’s nice because it gives us more shelf space for books in the living room.
I do worry because Eden at first was just pulling all the books of the shelf, or really wasn’t even letting Lilah put them on the shelf, but I think she’s got the hang of getting one book down and putting it way before getting another one down. Though she still grabs 3-4, but I’d rather 3 or 4 than a pile.

Field Trip

Friday, November 30th, 2007

Yesterday we went to the Anderson Dairy factory, where they package milk, cottage cheese and ice cream.
It was fun for the most part.
The girls got lots of ice cream, the scoop was rather big, and I only let them eat half because it was before lunch.
Lilah liked the fog that they had and the talking animals.
Afterwards we to to CiCi’s pizza where they have a pizza buffet with salad. I’ve never been but it wasn’t bad.
I was with Sam and Britta and Emily and her two daughters, Katia and Isabell, and we saw one other mom from our group with her two kids and husband, Crystal.
Afterwards we went to Goodwill where I got a new, never used, shelf for the girls room for $12. I don’t think I’d pay more than that for it, though I’m sure it was more like $20 at Target.

It was a fun day but while waiting to take the tour Eden scared me.
All the kids were playing and her and another boy ran into one another or something happened where she got knocked down. He was cute and gave her a kiss and I ran over to comfort her.
I’m not sure if she was crying at this point, but she did have a sad face on. I picked her up and I remember waiting for the loud yell of her cry. Children get so upset that they’re silent and then you get the loud cry. Well as I was waiting for it I cuddled her into me for a brief few seconds and then she pushed away from me, arched her back and I think went unconscious for a little bit.
It freaked me out because she was not her normal self and I saw her eyes gloss over.
I started to cradle her and said that something was wrong with Eden and Crystal, another mom, started saying her name to get her attention and she took her to bring her straight up.
She just lost her breath and passed out for a few seconds but it was freaky and it was the first time anything like this has happened to me.
She was fine and just wanted to cuddle and was back to her normal self by the time we went on the tour.

A year.

Yesterday was busy so I wasn’t able to write about this until today.

A year from yesterday Jon announced his disbelief in God.
I remember my heart breaking and the sadness I had.
A lot has happened in the past year but in some ways very little.
I’ve realized I can survived a marital crisis.
I’ve realized that a spouse changing beliefs is not the end of the world.
I’ve realized how much my family loves me and my husband.
I’ve realized I am strong and that going to the temple alone is not lonely if you go with other relief society sisters.

I still long for a supportive husband that can teach the Gospel by my side, but I am happy that Jon is happy and is being himself.

So it’s been a year. I’m still married and still in love with my husband.
