We love pink piggies!!

This is one of my favorite activities... I LOVE to paint toe nails!! I am a bit obsessive about my own toe nails because they have to be painted and the paint has to look good or I get anxiety. There is nothing worse than nasty toes, ewww! So, because of my obsession I paint Aniston's. She sleeps through it at this point in her life (that's the trick to getting them to look good). Call me crazy for doing it when she is so young, but it's cute and people comment on her piggies all the time!!

I promise I don't beat my husband

Chris had a little accident this past weekend. He was due for another since his last was right before Aniston was born and the one before that was right after we found out I was pregnant. He called me last Saturday and told me he cut his face and needed stiches. I was with my Mom and Aniston at a Costco right by the new hospital. He said he could drive and meet me there, but then I remembered they are IHC and not contracted with our insurance so we couldn't go there (I won't even go there about paying an arm and a leg for insurance and not being able to go where you want). We hurried and checked out and rushed home so we could get him stiched up before it was to late. We went to an Instacare and a wierdo doctor stiched him up. He has a whoppin' 5 stiches and the black eye is now setting in. He looks abused, but I promise I didn't do it!! So I should probably tell you the story of how it all happened. He was breaking a piece of plywood (jumping on it to break it), and instead of it just kind of splitting, the piece shot up in the air and hit his cheek and split it open. Lucky me I get to take the stiches out tomorrow, and I am so excited!! I love taking stiches and staples out, and haven't done it in awhile so I am really looking forward to it. Let's hope this trend of getting hurt every 8 months stops with this injury, for everyone's sake. I'll go get a job taking out stiches to fill my need if that's what it takes.

I have filled my funeral quota for eternity

Life is too short, even if it's 87 years. My Grandma Jean passed away Saturday, and Tuesday and Wednesday we had services for her. My Grandma was one of my best friends and someone I would go to when I needed to be cheered up. I feel really blessed to have been able to live with her for a year while I attended Dixie College, and to have been so close to her while I lived in St. George. I have many great memories of her, and she was the one person who taught me to love myself and judge not. Those phrases were ettched into my brain thanks to her. She was a wonderful example of a Christ like person, and I am thankful she is now with my Grandpa and her sweetheart again!
