Ashley and Brinn go to Disney on Ice!

Ashley and her best friend, Brinn got to go to Disney on Ice in March. They had so much fun watching the skaters. They loved the princess couples from all the movies. I think they enjoyed the Dippin Dots ice cream more than anything though :) !!!

Bruno gets his green belt

In February Bruno earned his green belt in Karate. He really loves the sport and works hard in class. He loves the sparring the most. Here are a few pics to see him in action!

In February, My Girls got to go to a Daddy/Daughter dance "Celebrity" themed!! They had a limo ride for them at the party and they danced and had a fabulous time :) They sure love their Daddy!

Christmas continued

A year in Pictures

So I thought I would sum up this past year with some pictures to show what we have been up to. We have been busy!!

We went to Hawaii for Christmas thru New Years! It was super fun. We went to Maui and stayed in Kaanaplali for about 8 days. It was beautiful weather (a nice change from the snow). We then went over to Molokai for a few days and rented a condo. It was beautiful and VERY secluded. We were able to go to a Luau, ride in a helicopter, and go on a snorkel boat. The kids loved being there and playing on the beach each day. We really enjoyed it ALL!!!

Back in Action

I haven't been posting in over a year. I am happy to say that my Mom has inspired me to start posting again. I am heading into a new phase in my life,and maybe blogging will help me through. My kids will all be in full time school in the fall. I think because I am a stay at home Mom this is going to be hard for me. I am grateful that I will have ample time at the gym though :). I am trying to decide if I want to pursue an education in interior design or go to beauty school and do hair. Both sound fun and exciting. I just got done with a 5 week live-in fitness camp and just started a boot camp at home this week. My goal is to lose another 25 lbs before September. I am struggling with my eating. Why is that so stinking hard for me? Cupcakes just constantly call my name. I am going to make a new resolve today to eat well this week. I will keep you posted...........

Heber with Grandma Scarbrough

We stayed at a Worldmark resort in Heber last weekend. It was fun for the kids to go swimming in the crater at the Homestead and go to the pioneer day celebrations. We swam, watched movies, and Bruno and his best friend, Slade, had a magic show for us!

Alive for the first time in 10 days!

Coming out of my cave finally after being sick for way too long. I am so glad I am feeling more like myself today. I am ready for spinning class and ready to work my butt off (literally). Not sure if I want to weigh-in tomorrow. I don't think I have gained, but not sure I have lost either. I haven't been keeping track of points while I have been sick. What a naughty girl I am! Time to start again. I feel good and energized. This will be a good day. The mountains are so beautiful and the clouds are lifting over the valley. I really live in a beautiful place.

Curse you, Flu Bug!

I have been sick for a week now and not loving it. I was starting to feel better yesterday and went to church and then woke up feeling even worse than the sickest day last week. I went to the doctor and have a sinus infection, ear ache, and nasty cough. I am finally on an antibiotic and hopefully will bounce back quickly. I don't like missing my workouts. I was in such a good place with work-outs and strength training and dieting. I am determined to get back to it! We are babysitting a sweet little Yorkie for 10 days named, Moxie. She is cute and loves to just sit on your lap for hours and snuggle. Here is her picture: I think she looks like an Eewock from Star Wars. :)

Yeah Me!

I lost one more pound this morning. I am so excited that the weight is coming off. It makes me more and more motivated to eat well. Running today at the gym with my TRI class. Everyone around me seems to be coming down with a cold. Little Ashley kept coughing/sneezing all night- and I know this because she comes into our bed around 4:00 every morning. Then I get physically abused by her feet, legs, arms, ect. until I end up going into her bed until the alarm gets all the kids up for school. It is really pleasant. I thought this phase was supposed to end around 2 yrs old but now she is 4 and still at it. Any idea how I make her stay in her room? My other two never did this. Her room is the farthest away from mine and I think she gets scared. Anyway, we are going to make it a good day and maybe take a nap later this afternoon. We are enjoying scrapbooking together while she takes a sick day at pre-school. Here are our layouts. Ashley was very creative with her "Love" page and made a necklace on it! :) She is a fun girl.

The cutest face you have ever seen!

Here is a picture of our sweet Sophie. She is about 5 months old and is a Yorkie/Prague Ratter mix. She is Milo's half Sister.(They have the same Mom) She is growing and is 2 lbs now! Wow she was small when we first got her, but is doing great now.
Ashley and I went bike riding yesterday so that I could check out my new clip-in pedals. It was hard at first and then after a while I got the hang of it. We ventured to the park where I was behind Ashley on a hill and forgot to un-clip and fell straight over. Luckily we were in a part of the park where no one could see me. I just got a minor scratch on my knee. I hope that is the first/last time that happens! I had a good hour swim with my triathlon class last night. Nana was sweet to let little Bruno spend some time with her while I was at the gym. He had a great time. I lost another 2 lbs this morning on the scale. I am counting my points for weight watchers which seems to be making a huge difference at the scale. Last week I got my blood work done to make sure that my thyroid, blood sugar, and everything else was good. They said all my levels are normal. I am sooo relieved. I am one medication down now and just need to keep going so that I can get off the other 2! Here is a picture of my fancy new bike with the arrow bars and clip-in pedals.

The weight is coming off!

I am soo excited! I lost 4 lbs at my Saturday weigh-in at weight watchers. I had lost 2 lbs the week before, and this morning lost another 2 since Sat! I am soo excited. That means I am down 8 lbs since the 1st of January. I am working out a ton and trying to do cardio for a full hour to really burn a lot of fat. I am also lifting weights, swimming, and biking to train for my Tri in May. Today I start a group training course that will swim, bike and run three days a week. I hope to build up my core strength for the next 12 weeks. I took my bike into the shop and ended up getting arrow bars and clip-in pedals(I am a sucker). I am sooo nervous to try out my new clip-in pedals! I don't want to get stuck in them and fall over on the side of the road like an idiot. :) I guess I will stick to the driveway until I feel comfortable. Wish me luck!
Lexi's season for cheerleading competitions started a couple of weeks ago. They won their first competition and are competing again this Saturday. She skipped two levels this year and is on a level 4 team out of 5. It has been tough doing this difficult of stunts/pyramids and they have pushed them hard on their tumbling. Alexis is progressing so well and we are proud of her.

Thank goodness its Friday everyone! Made it through the week eating healthy and working out. Had a good run yesterday. Ran 3 miles and did some ab work. Went to lunch with my Aunt Cheryll and we sat next to Ryan DiLello from "So You Think You Can Dance." He is the married one who's Wife competed with him that is from Provo. He was super nice and we complimented him a ton. Loved last season- thought he was the most masculine dancer of the bunch. I love to dance and it is fun to watch as well. Just one more motivation to lose the weight and have my dancer body back! :)This is a picture from the last time I went on Weight Watchers about 2 yrs ago. Good motivation.

Go Jazz!

Went to the Jazz game with Bruno IV, Alexis, and Bruno V last night. It was their first game. We had a lot of fun and the Jazz won! Unfortunately that meant that I didn't get my workout in and so it is double duty today. My weight was the same today. I guess that is a triumph if you don't gain! :) I am motivated to fit into some cute jeans. My favorite Weight Watchers quote: "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels." Have a great day.

It's About Time!

I know, I know, It has been way to long since I updated my blog. We are starting a new year. New goals, new outlook on life. I signed up for a triathlon in May and the Ragnar Relay "Wasatch Back" in June. It will be my weight-loss, get in shape journey for the year. I also plan to run a half marathon this spring as part of my training. I really want to be fit and I love to set goals so that I can get myself to the gym. I am grateful for support from friends and family. I had so much fun running the Wasatch Back last June. It really felt like a huge accomplishment. I want to use this blog not only for my family updates but as a motivation to lose weight. I will post my weight-loss journey for my family and friends to see. It is June 6th today and so far this year I have kept on my workout/eating schedule. I have lost 4.5 lbs since the 1st. Keep on, keepin'on!

Bruno 5 is a Cub Scout!

Our little Bruno just turned 8 and will be getting baptized on the 28th of May. He just went to his very first cub scout (wolf) activity. They went on a little trail hike up in the mountains east of our house. He had a lot of fun with his friends that he knows from church. He was sooo excited to get his uniform and hat! He made me put his patches on the minute we walked in the door from buying them. I am so proud of him and excited to help him earn all of his badges.

I got my ears! ^ ^

So in the last two weeks Milo's ears have decided to point straight up on their own. He is our little batman! He is super cute and we love him. He has already learned to sit, lay down, roll over, and jump on command. We had a great day at the park with him and he made lots of new friends.

More pics of Milo!

Our New Puppy!

Introducing our latest addition to the family......Milo! He is our sweet little puppy. He is 12 weeks old and the love of our lives! :) He is such a good dog. He loves the kids and loves to sit and snuggle with Mom and drive everywhere with us. He is potty training amazingly well and is so easy to take care of. His favorite thing to do is play fetch with all of his toys. We are so happy to have him!! We found him from a breeder down the street who normally breeds Yorkies. She is one of the only breeders in Utah for this type of dog. They are called prazsky Krysaviks(prague ratter for short). His Mom was imported from the Czech Republic where they are mostly found. They are growing in popularity in the US and, in our families opionion, the "perfect dog"! He is not a yippy dog at all and is super smart. This is our third dog that we have owned since we've been married and definately the best fit for our family. We recommend this breed to anyone!! Here are a few pics of him....Enjoy!!!
