Here we go Again Ragnar, I'm nervous!

Last Year's Team 2008...

Christie, you will be missed for sure. (You were so dang positive!) and of course all are other 2008 teammates that wont be joining us again this year. All new commies, you will love it! And we will either love you or want to throw you out of the car by the end of the race.... J/K! Were excited and everything else that goes along with running the Ragnar . Should be really fun, or really????

Who else is running the Ragnar this year??? Everyone be safe and hope to see you out on the highway... I will be the one crawling up the hills. Good thing I am doing this last minute. Who needs to train, right?? (P90X is running). Oh boy!! what did I get myself into.

I Have Never Worked Out This Hard in my LIFE!




I have to post about this, because I will admit, I am kind of shocked and proud of myself at this point, knock on wood......
I have truly NEVER, EVER been so diligent about something to do with working out as I have with P90x. I have heard of this program for sometime. I have cousins and a few friends that have done it, and have honestly though it was pretty great and definitely shows results.
So early last month a good friend, Christie Beck that is one of the most disciplined individuals I have ever met when it comes to strength Training, (she rocks!) So I give Christie all credit for pushing me and starting me on this program. To show how crazy Christie is she is doing this workout 4 months pregnant, yes prego. (When I am pregnant I go into hiding and never want to come out until my baby is 5 months old.) I have NEVER been a EARLY workout women. I have NEVER been a 6 days a week workout women ether. I have NEVER woke up at 4:50 for 18 straight days.. So why do I bore you with this, well I know if I post this it makes me more motivated and it's out there. I have to do the full 90 days, I have to...... So everyone out there grab a friend and start anything that's new and out of your comfort zone, it makes you feel so alive, and makes you believe you can do anything. (I am trying to sound real positive, just go with it.) If Natalie can do it, anyone in the WORLD can do it........

Valentine weekend




A good workout on our Hike, but I should of worn sunscreen. What was I thinking that my very pale skin would just turn golden.....





It was Fabulous... Thanks to my family we were able to take off to Tucson for a couple of days and enjoy some hiking, dining and an incredible Andrew Bird concert.... Still trying to figure out my camera. I just wish I could get some darn clear pictures with every shot. Patience and reading up, and maybe I will get there.

Ordinary Fun/Moms Happy

Watching my kids play and Laugh really hard is about the best feeling my kids could give me. How quickly I can erase that moment of five seconds ago that I thought I was going to pull my hair out. Laughter is good, real good for this mother...

Early Birthday Gift

Cash waited so patiently as Dad attempted the LONG process of putting together this not so easy vehicle

FHE with Sister Australia and Sister Texas



The Sister missionaries were so kind to come and share a special message with us on Monday. Which was great for us, no planning of a FHE for that Monday. The boys really enjoyed the sisters little presentation of putting their armor on, learning to opening their mouths more about the gospel, cool swords, and of course the scripture reading. I guess there is an elder in there area that is a little hyper-active so they are always brainstorming on ways to keep his mind and hands busy. I thought that was smart thinking... Noah really thought it was great that a missionary could come all the way from Kangaroo land, and talk so cool....
