Kathryn Turns 40

Well, yes it happened! I turned the big 40 in March. I had told Mark that i wanted to do something fun, I was thinking Salt Lake or even Park City. Well you know Mark he never does things little. Our neighbors were going on a cruise to the Mexican Riviera, and the next thing i know, on Wednesday night he said pack your bag we are going with the Hess's on a cruise. I just about died i love to go on cruises. So we left on Saturday and flew to Los Angeles. We did some shopping and just good old talking, with the three little ones we don't always get good conversation in. So on Sunday we got on the ship it was so big! It was the biggest we have been on just amazing.It even had a ice skating rink. We met up with our friends and laughed and laughed. Every night we sat with the same people some interesting ones and some really great ones. Our first stop was Cabo San Lucas. It was beautiful, we went on a snorkeling tour, and we even saw whales it was so awesome. The water was a little bit cold but so much fun. The whales were so big and awesome! Our next stop was in Mazatlan, we went on a day at the beach and boat rides. Well you know Mark he was just as happy to sit and read his book. So i just enjoyed the quiet. Then our next stop was Puerto Vallarta, i thought it was so pretty, we went on a zip line. Each time or should i say the older i get the more afraid i get of being up so high. It was so beautiful and it was so much fun. The jeep ride there was pretty scary, but we made it. I then did my shopping and had fun. On the day of my birthday my husband spoiled me rotten. He had roses sent to our room, and then he had the room decorated for my birthday. He also got me a massage and a pedicure. I was in heaven it was the best!! Then at dinner our friends had my seat at the table decorated. And then had our friends and kids write me a birthday card, it was so great! It was such a fun and a very great birthday!
Thank you Jason and Marianne for letting us spend our vacation with you! You both are great!
Mark is so good to me. Also to give me a 40th birthday in such a big way! I love him so much!! Thank you honey, I loved every minute of our trip together. You are the Best I love you so much!!

Reagan and Reese turn 2

Well, i never thought this big day would come. I remember the day they were born and Mark thought i was going into false labor again and he did not take me to serious. So when we arrived at the hospital i was dialed to a 7 and my water was about to break. All i could think about was, am i able to still get the epidural. Well all went well and they were born about 1:30 in the afternoon. Reagan came weighing in at a big 5 ibs 3 ozs and Reese came in at 4 lbs 7 ozs. They were so beautiful, i still was very shocked that i just gave birth to two babies. Mark kept saying we are done yeah!! They have really made our lives so happy and never a dull moment! They keep Mark and I feeling very young. I'm so glad we have the two caboose's on the end!!
I just love them so much!!

My Mom and Dad are the Best

My Parents are the Best!! Last week i had to have some surgery and needed to be down for a week. Well you know my life that is not possible. So my Mom said she would take my twins for a week. Well that was so great i was able to recover real quick. My parents have always been there for me and my family, besides being my best friends they are the best parents ever!! I love you Mom and Dad, and so does Reagan and Reese!! Thanks again you are the best!

My January Thoughts

I got this poem from my friend Julie, i hope she doesn't mind me sharing it. I thought it was so funny!!

'Twas the Month After Christmas & I Ate Too Much

'Twas the month after Christmas, and all through the house
Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse.
The cookies I'd nibbled, the eggnog I'd taste
At the holiday parties had gone to my waist.
When I got on the scales there arose such a number!
When I walked to the store (less a walk than a lumber).
I'd remember the marvelous meals I'd prepared;
The gravies and sauces and beef nicely rared,
The wine and the rum balls, the bread and the cheese
And the way I'd never said, "No thank you, please."
As I dressed myself in my husband's old shirt
And prepared once again to do battle with dirt.
I said to myself, as I only can
"You can't spend a winter disguised as a man!"
So--away with the last of the sour cream dip,
Get rid of the fruit cake, every cracker and chip
Every last bit of food that I like must be banished
Till all the additional ounces have vanished.
I won't have a cookie--not even a lick.
I'll want only to chew on a long celery stick.
I won't have hot biscuits, or corn bread, or pie,
I'll munch on a carrot and quietly cry.
I'm hungry, I'm lonesome, and life is a bore,
But isn't that what January is for?
Unable to giggle, no longer a riot.
Happy New Year to all and to all a good diet!
