Here are the pictures of our new nephew. Ben and Alisa had their baby late late Tuesday night. He was 8lbs and 1 oz and it 22 inches long. He is pretty cute. The kids are sure excited. Oh and his name is Greyden James White. (hopefully they won't call him Grey White...hee hee hee)

So I have had some request to show a picture of our new table on our blog. So here it is. We needed one badly, the old one just wasn't working for us. We were only using one side, it was difficult to clean under (not good with with two kids), and well it was just too big. So we actually got the table last Saturday in the scratch and dent section of RC Willey (just a little piece of molding is missing). The chairs were a different story, they were a $100 a piece so we thought well we are just going to have to buy one at a time to afford them. So on Tuesday we went to pick up the table and found two chairs in the scratch and dent area. So we asked the salesman if any sales were coming up for these chairs. Well it turned out that they are actually discontinuing the chairs and they were only $50 a piece so we bought two brand new chairs and two scratch and dent (no idea what is wrong with them). We want to buy two more, but the salesman told us to wait since there was a lot in stock and see if they go down in price. Weird, now that I think of it, for a salesman to tell us to wait. Oh well. We love the table we have so much more room in our kitchen and so much easier to clean under! And it has a leaf so we can make it bigger when we have guests too! So we are selling our old table on ksl.com if you know anyone that wants a really nice big table! (nice plug huh, I even have a picture!)

O.k. I also think that this is funny too. This is what I got for Mother's Day from my kids, apparently Brett let them pick out whatever they wanted to get me and they really took that to heart. So this is the result......
Yes those are UNO "Cars" cards and Tinkerbell cards. Good thing that I love them both. Luckily I have a wonderful husband who realized that I probably wouldn't be too thrilled with playing cards for Mother's Day and got me the Enchanted DVD as well. Yes and Brett has taken very good care of me all day. He made both breakfast and dinner and it was really good which is double plus! No just kidding he did a good job. I actually am feeling quite lazy tonight. Anyways that is all. Hope everyone had a great day!

I have many memories of my mother. I think that one of the earliest one I have is her helping me learn to ride my yellow bike on a very cold Christmas morning. Oh how I loved that bike! I also remember her walking us to 7-eleven everyday to get a slurpee during the summer. Thinking back it probably wasn't everyday but that is how I remember it.
I remember her coaching my Young Women's basketball team, and how we won every single game that year, and only lost in the regional championship. And if many of you know me and my mom we are not big shoppers, but I loved going shopping with her (and still do) for clothes and how we could never make our mind up about what we want. And after spending what seemed like hours looking for clothes we would end up putting everything back and going home with nothing! And don't forget the many hours that we would spend at Lake Powell at night playing tootsie roll poker.
Unfortunately and probably because I was a snotty nose kid I never really appreciated my mom until I became one myself. I see her with my kids and I am truly amazed (and sometimes think this is not the same person who raised me!). She plays with Will and Kyanna from the time that we come over until the time that we leave. She is so patient with them. Also she has been extremely helpful to me. She is always willing to come over and help if ever the kids are sick or if I am sick. Just yesterday when both Will and Kyanna are suffering from the lovely Hand Foot and Mouth disease she left work to go get some medicine from the store and then later that night brought slurpees over for the kids. I am so thankful to have her living so close to me and that I can call her anytime and she is always there for me. I love you mom and I hope that you have a wonderful Mothers Day!
And Happy Mother's Day to everyone!

Well I have been noticing some blogs lately about Mother's Day and I haven't had anything exciting or even not that exciting to post about this week. ButI have always wanted to share an e-mail that I got a few years ago from my friend, Lisa about mothers and then another one about being pregnant. I thought they were so funny. So here is to all the mothers out there!
For all of the Mothers out there!
Somebody said it takes about six weeks to get back to normal afteryou've had a baby ..........Somebody doesn't know that once you're a mother, "Normal," is history.
Somebody said you learn how to be a mother by instinct .. Somebody never took a three-year-old shopping.
Somebody said being a mother is boring ......Somebody never rode in a car driven by a teenager with a driver's permit.
Somebody said if you're a "good" mother, your child will "turn out good."Somebody thinks a child comes with directions and a guarantee.
Somebody said "good" mothers never raise their voices ....Somebody never came out the back door just in time to see her child hit a golf ball through the neighbor's kitchen window.
Somebody said you don't need an education to be a mother. Somebody never helped a fourth grader with her math.
Somebody said you can't love the fifth child as much as you love the first.Somebody doesn't have five children.
Somebody said a mother can find all the answers to her child-rearing questions in the books .......Somebody never had a child stuff beans up his nose or in his ears.
Somebody said the hardest part of being a mother is labor and delivery.... Somebody never watched her "baby" get on the bus for the first day ofkindergarten. or on a plane headed for military "boot camp."
Somebody said a mother can do her job with her eyes closed and one hand tied behind her back ......Somebody never organized four giggling Brownies to sell cookies.
Somebody said a mother can stop worrying after her child gets married....Somebody doesn't know that marriage adds a new son or daughter-in-law to a mother's heartstrings.
Somebody said a mother's job is done when her last child leaves home Somebody never had grandchildren.
Somebody said your mother knows you love her, so you don't need to tell her....... Somebody isn't a mother.
