Hello, Dusty little things.........

Hi My running pals!
I have missed you, Sorry I kept in the back of my row of shoes.
Them and I went for a little run tonight. Only 3 Miles, But....
Freakin Lizards how did I do 13?
I have only ran 3 times since August. Its time!
Definalty Time. My body, Mind and Sole are telling me so.
It was nice to get out, just my Music and I!
The girls Both Cut their hair.
They have a friend over having some Styling Lessons!
{if you see in the top lefty....Abbie drew The West Family in stick figure form....sweet!}
* I played Super Mario bros on the WII with Jax for an Hour.
* I sucked. I remember the times when I was little and I rocked Super Mario!
* I had a bowl of Vinegar and cucumbers sitten next to me.
* Bought My paint for the Office. ;)
*Got Christmas all put away.
* Charlee Cried the first 30 minutes of Wii time.....she wanted to play instead.
* Abbie dropped my Cell Phone in a LARGE bowl of water in the sink.
* I was sad.
* It works a little strange, calling random people at any time. creepy!
{sorry if i called you} :)
*I have a Huge Honkin Zit on the side of my face.....maybe I won't cut my
*I let Abbie Drive around our neighborhood {alot}...She is actually getting pretty good.
why is this bad? Cuz I think its dumb teenagers get their Permit at 15!
They are babies!

never grow up.....

Charlee is still sick, bless her little heart.
Makes her Onery and cuddly all in the same day!
Mike gets home this morning at 7:00 from work.......Him and I try and do some cuddling ourselfs since when he works nights we don't get to see each other or talk much.
We hear Charlee in the other room crying.....The 'sick' cry.
Muted, stuffy, coughing.
Mike gets up to go grab her. While i laid in bed listening to their cute little conversation.
She cried a little louder when she saw him walk in to get her...
Kinda like...."Daddy Im sick" :(
Mike Brings her into our bed, as all three of us snuggle in a quiet house.
Mike quietly falls asleep.
Its just Charlee and I. She is snuggled right in my neck. Trying to breath through her little stuffy nose.
How blessed I truly AM! That I don't have to get up and go to work.
And have the stresses of that and haveing sick kids.
That I got to lay in bed with my sweet charlee and hold her.
I get to take care of my kids each day.
There are somethings we do without because WE chose to have me stay home.
I hope I never take that for granted!
I love Taylor Swift.
I have mentioned many times before......I love her Art.
She writes her own songs from her journal, I think thats Why i like her.
The girls and I love listening to her newest Album..
This song "Never grow up"
Struck a cord with me. From Charlee to Abbie.
Go read! :)

{ you wanna kiss her little chubby toes don'tcha?}


"Never grow up"

By Taylor Swift

You're little hands wrapped around my finger
And, it's so quiet in the world tonight
You're little eyelids flutter cause you're dreaming
So, I tuck you in
Turn on your favorite night light
To you, everything's funny
You got nothing to regret
I'd give all I had, honey
If you could stay like that

Oh, darling don't you ever grow up
Don't you ever grow up
Just stay this little
Oh, darling don't you ever grow up
Don't you ever grow up
It can stay this simple

I won't let nobody hurt you, won't let no one break your heart
And no one will desert you
Just try to never grow up, and never grow up

You're in the car on the way to the movies
And, you're mortified
You're mom's dropping you off
At, fourteen there's just so much you can't do
And you can't wait to move out someday and call your own shots
But, don't make her drop you off around the block
Remember that she's getting older too
And don't lose the way that you dance around in your PJ's getting ready for school

Oh, darling don't you ever grow up
Don't you ever grow up
Just stay this little
Oh, darling don't you ever grow up
Don't you ever grow up
It can stay this simple

And no one's ever burned you
Nothing's ever left you scarred
And even though you want to
Just try to never grow up

Take pictures in your mind of your childhood room
Memorize what it sounded like when your dad get's home
Remember the footsteps, remember the words said
And all you're little brothers favorite songs
I just realized everything I had is someday gonna be gone

So, here I am in my new apartment
In a big city, they just dropped me off
It's so much colder than I thought it would be
So, I tucked myself in and turned my night light on
Wish I'd never grown up
I wish I'd never grown up

Oh, I don't wanna grow up
Wish I'd never grown up
Could still be little
Oh, I don't wanna grow up
Wish I'd never grown up
It could still be simple

Oh, darling don't you ever grow up
Don't you ever grow up
Just stay this little
Oh, darling don't you ever grow up
Don't you ever grow up
It can stay this simple

Won't let nobody hurt you
Won't let no one break your heart
And even though you want to
Please, try to never grow up

Oh, whoa
Don't you ever grow up
Oh, whoa
Never grow up
Just never grow up

Today was great!
And then to TOP it off.......its snowed so much! And then I put a little christmas away and picked up after my little pig droppings. :)
I got to go to Sacrament by myself today
{mike worked nights and the kids were sicky}
It came clear to me:
We GOT to have a christmas.
We have a house to have it in.
I got to be involved and watch my children.
And we were all together!
I didn't mean to be so selfish. :(


Teaching the basic's of cheerleading?

Acting out!

My night ended late!
and My day started early!.
Mike had to work last I had to help "santa" by myself.
Luckily he was home by the time the kids were up and ready to make disaster happen.

The kids did not complain.
they were super happy about their "santa" Treasures!
{I will post LOTS more pictures about our night and day soon}
But i have to add just ONE thing tonight-----
Acting out:
what does that MEAN anyways?
Charlee got sick last night...... woke up with her face held together by boogers
therefore, acting out! {all day}
Jax was so OVERLY stimulated but very joyful......therefore acting out!
GIRLS-----teenager adrenaline {which is so different from adult adernaline...more retarted like}---very happy, moody excited.....therefore actingout!
{Abbie cut her hair 5inches...and Autumn is now thinking of Chopping her bangs off}
Me? Why, i thought you would never ask.
all this WORK!!!
all this work that took ME two months tooooooo:
write down
write down again
think, ponder
and then wait....................
and then
wait for the perfect
set it all out so perfect!
and then come one Morning....
all the work, and POOF----its over!
So now Im laying here {ok not really, but i was}
and looking at my house that looks like a hurd of elephants ran through it.
I feel like acting out!
Not to mention i forgot "hidden" presents through out the house that I realized HOURS after we were finished getting old.
I have already ate 3 lbs of chocolate today.
so I can either,
A) Eat more damn chocolate
B) Cut my hair {I know I know...weird but i am an Impulse "doer" and I really wanna....short and Fohawk like}
C) Or do something else I shouldn't. Just cuz I wanna act out like Im 4.
Anyone else relate? Please tell me yes!
Is this normal? Please tell me yes!
So, besides all that Nonsence talk..........we had a delightful Christmas eve at my parents....{will post soon}
and we had a delightful Morning & day. :)
NOW---if I can just get out of this RUT........
will cutting my hair help?
a little birdy told me once:
"Cutting your hair releases emotions we hold on too and issues....therefore creating a "new start".
Which is SO what I need......
So, Should I? so lost!
and a TINY bit scared, im not gunna lie!

from me to you!

Oh happy day!
{if only we were snowed in}
