busy busy busy…

Where has this month gone? I feel like I’m so busy! Rob and I spent a week babysitting for Rob’s Aunt & Uncle (their 5 kids) last week… and now my mom is out here visiting which is always great! And what’s taken up tons of my brain power this month has been working on getting in shape, losing some weight… it’s been a nice break from focusing so much on trying to get pregnant. Turns out this whole “eating healthy” thing is so new to me it’s taking a lot of planning and preparing. And will power. And primary always keeps me busy too… new year, lots of new changes there.

Anyway I don’t know when I stopped finding time/desire to blog. I haven’t taken as many pictures and I feel like without pictures you can’t blog. I’ve taken some cute videos with my little video camera and I should upload those and post them for all of you Quattro fans out there….

Maybe next week I’ll have something more interesting to post about! Like my birthday on Monday! :)

The Holidays…

We had such an awesome Christmas and New Years! We’ve been too busy enjoying it to blog about it I guess… now that life has slowed down a little bit and we’re starting to get back to normal… except this crazy diet/New Years resolution stuff…. oh well!

Christmas Eve we visited grandparents with Andrew & Becca and Amy & Nathan…


We were shooting for 3 for 3 but Gran had laryngitis that day… we’re lucky to have so many wonderful grandparents here in Utah!

Christmas Eve afternoon we went to see the reindeer at Thanksgiving Point… they weren’t in their usual spot so we had to track them down… when Rob went in to ask the lady inside where they were she slyly told him, “They’re helping Santa today!!” Yeah right lady… where are they? It was kind of funny…

Christmas Eve… new jammies per Rob’s request (his family’s tradition)… then Rob and I watched The Holiday while we wrapped presents and got Christmas ready…


We let Robby open his present from Uncle Daniel – it was a monkey from Build A Bear complete with a blue and white “Byu-ish” jersey outfit and a little jacket that said “Quattro” on it…. It is the cutest thing ever! Robby LOVED it. He looked at it and said, “0-0… he must be a mascot, like Cosmo.” Apparently Cosmo’s number is 00… who would’ve noticed that??? He’s so crazy observant… he took monkey Quattro to bed with him and the next day that was the one toy he picked to bring over to Andrew & Becca’s.

We hung lights across the hallway with “do not enter” signs – we had told him, “In the morning, don’t go in the living room without mommy and daddy! We’ll put signs up to help you remember!” And little mister smarty pants said, “Well, I can’t read so I won’t know what the signs say…” like so of course I can still go in the living room… he’s so funny!


Opened some presents and then had a yummy Christmas breakfast! Complete with MaryAnn’s cinnamon rolls – made by Becca and her lovely assistant, Rob. 😉


He loved that he could read his name on the presents… and when he opened this one (Playmobil Knights & Castle) he was so excited it was so cute!!


Had a lovely Christmas dinner of Cafe Rio Pork salads at A&B’s….

And apparently took no other pictures from Christmas…. except on the new little video camera (it’s like a Flip camera but it’s called Bloggie) Rob gave me for Christmas! Videos may be posted soon…

***NEW YEARS!***

Not really having any energy to plan a party or anything we kind of all just gathered randomly and enjoyed a fun low key evening! Frozen pizzas and treats…


We did a “kids countdown” early – thank you, youtube – before they went to bed!


So glad I have such great friends & family around here to celebrate with!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year! :)
