Okay gang! I think that I might have sometime to try to be good at this blogging thing now, well, give me a couple of weeks! You guys so inspire me to be a better blogger. The fact is we have not had a totally permanent home since beginning of March! YIKES! So yes, we have moved again! Believe it! I am still trying and happy as all can be. Bless my dear parents for being wonderful enough to take our homeless family in. Now for those of you who don't know--which I think all 2 of you do that read this poor little blog with a totally messed up blogger. Our house is rented out until March of 2010! This was suppose to be awesome!! We moved up north for a job change and were suppose to move to Oklahoma a few weeks after that. Well, lets just say things didn't go as planned--Obviously--because here we are! So after a month (this would be April) we were back. All of you who thought that that the Hoof Trimmer and his wife would be gone had to cancel the party because we were back faster than I don't know what. So back to my sweet parents that took us in. They just got rid of my baby sis in November. She and Teeb were married. My parents thought they had the house to themselves. They were just starting to think of their bucket list and how much fun they would have. And WHAM the five of us move in with them. Now don't forget that we educate of children in the home so there was always at least 4 of us around. Those poor people have earned their spot in heaven for that! So Thursday before Labor day Hubby's mom calls and tells me that we can move into SIS & BIL's house on Monday-Labor day. Okay there were renters and she wasn't sure that they would be out but, we were all crossing our fingers. You know that feeling that if you tell someone that you need help moving in on a holiday that it doesn't happen but, if you don't tell anyone it always does. Well, I didn't tell anyone that we are for sure moving so guess what! The house was ours! Cute house! So it is kinda weird living here since I can see where my Mom-in-Law had her stuff and Hubby's bro and family had their stuff and now our stuff is in it. Kinda crazy! Especially since we have SIL & BIL's dog and I see her laying in her spots around the house that she used to lay in when I used to visit. Kinda a trip. So with all this in mind we are here for a little while now until our house is open. YEAH!!! And I will have to say we are settling well and the boys are doing awesome with school. Even though their home teacher is a little nutty and anal! So with all that said I hope to re-re-enter the blogging world and not make a wrong turn again and fall off the blogging map!

The my kids love swim! They love how the older kiddos hang out with them and teach them or help them. They love it when they joke around and play games with them. Here is a pic of some of my kids idols-the brothers aren't in it-Upermans fav, but, these green hair fish are! Thanks guys! The girls will be on the next post. Blue Boy and Do-Dude love the meets! I on the other hand have my newest addition with me -my camera- and am taking pics like crazy. You know when you are on over load when you are taking pics of everyone's kids that you know. But, lets just say when we are hanging with our great friends-Parents of the fab four-and others around us having a good time what could be better? Blue Boy is posing for the camera here. He thinks he is hot stuff! With his cute little freckles and brown body he thinks that all he has to do is smile and I will take his pic. I did this time. And . . . a couple of hundred times as well. Do-Dude doing his best in the water. He is not a contact sporter unless it involves Blue Boy or Dad. And anyone else that he feels comfy with enough to wrestle around. He is my Non-rule breaking kid for the most part. I think some of that comes from his Mother-whoever that lady is! Go Do-Dudee, Go! Doing the back stroke-Not one of his favs, but, Do-Dude is doing good!I am still trying to figure this kiddo out. I got him goggles, they break, we get another pair. Now he is swimming with his eyes closed because he doesn't want to wear his goggles. So we are now swimming with our eyes shut. This is his fav stroke! He could back stroke all day!
With in just a couple of minutes it was at the waters edge. Of course it didn't help that the wind picked up and started scattering embers onto the bridge where we were.

Well, I had a nice picture with us and our missionary but, in the frantic typing of my fingers I don't know what I did but, it is no longer. Sad it was cute-- I just don't know what I was laughing so hard about in it though. So instead of that cute family pic here is one of Hubby, Grandpa Govvey, and Uncle Missionary. Don't ask me what Grandpa is doing or who he is here. Never know what that man is up to! He is always making us giggle, especially here with his cool wig and shades. Uncle Missionary is trying to feed him part of his sandwich. Crazy guys!
This is my cute little sis-in-law and her new hubby. Aren't they adorable? Auntie A is so sweet and so is Uncle J. We love them. Especially Uperman since Uncle J played with him all day. What a great couple!
Here is our missionary with all the girls. Now this is not all the girls that came and said good bye to this sweet, funny and let me tell you Very talented guy! He is amazing on the piano and drums. Has his own band-even though it will be on hold for two years. We are already missing him even though we don't see them all the time. Still it is that crazy thing that pulls at your strings-You know-You want what you can't have. We want to visit him again but, he will be in Utah at the MTC. Good luck guy and we will be rooting for ya! We will miss your crazy, spiky hair too!

My Uncle D had his friend take us on a helicopter ride! We had so much fun! It was a little scary at first since the wind was blowing like crazy. It did feel like you were in a bubble and it was trying it's best not to pop! Here is Kermy in the copter landing. Mr. J was our pilot. This is want the layout of my Uncle D and Kermy's land looks like. Our house is almost in the middle of the picture. Crazy landing in the wind. Hubby and I got to go at the same time. I didn't get any headphones so I couldn't hear Hubby ask him how many times Mr J has crashed or things of that nature, which I am thankful for! It was super fun--Thank you Uncle D!

My internet is tricky up here. I tried to get this posted sooner but, here I am. Okay, up here in Chino you never can be sure what Mr. Jack Frost is thinking. It was warming up so, I didn't think about trying to find our jackets since it was warming up-does that make sense? Well it started to snow on Sunday and Monday morning this is what we saw when we looked out our windows. It was so pretty-everything was white and clean! This is looking out my kitchen window and the dining room doors. The horses enjoying their breakfast. This is looking out our front window. My cousins house and neighbors. Uperman the night before snagged some snow and put it in a cup and was enjoying Spiderman while he ate his snow. The kids thought this was the best even though it was chilly outside. We skipped out on school that morning to enjoy the snow. By early afternoon on Monday it was all gone. Just mud remained. The kids were sad!

I have been tagged! The Middle Name Tag! These are the rules: You must post the rules before you give your answers.You must list one fact about yourself for each letter of your middle name. Each fact must begin with that letter. If you don't have a middle name, just use your maiden name.After you've been tagged, you need to update your blog with your middle name and answers. At the end of your post, you need to tag one person for each letter of your middle name. (Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged and need to read your blog for details. My middle name is Reine . . . . Running around like a chicken with its head cut off trying to pack, homework, homeschool (getting it all together), cook, clean, etc, etc! Enjoying the conversations with my Boys! They are so fun! Imagining what things will be like in a year?! YIKES! Needing the phone chats and family prayer with my Hubby on the other end! The kids love this and think that it is so fun to pray with their Daddy on speaker phone! Entertaining conversations and Power Ranger and Spiderman fights that my Uperman does! He is 2 1/2 and is always telling me all the AWESOME moves that the Red Power Ranger and Siderman do and how one hand is the good guy and the other is the bad guy and they fly through the air and crash into each other and one falls down. I guess I should get my kids some toys? Uperman entertains himself with his hands they work just as well as figurines! (By the way everything that he says has "that was Awesome" or "nice shot" in it somewhere! Okay I guess I am tagging Megan, Jenny, and Jill

A few more pics of the snow and Christmas tree cutting. But look what I did for my Sis for Xmas. I took this picture of them. This is usually how they are. . . geez. . . newlyweds! But I did this. . . I love it! I printed it out for her and put it on this cool frame that I got her. I drew her name for Xmas-She is SOOOO Lucky! (Just kidding!) Anyways I did it all on photoshop thanks to Jessica Sprague! They loved it! I don't know if new BIL even knows how to use that thing, I mean sword, no saw! They are standing in front of their tree. Once they got it home they said it looked gangster-ish. Is that even a word. But, New BIL made sure that it had water every 5 hours or so! And was a little over the top when my Sis put 2 strands of little lights on it! Upermans only complaint was that his legs were tired but, he loved the snow and loved the way it tasted! Tough guy just like Superman! Don't look at the dirt BUT this is how Hubby felt once the tree was in the stand with water! He was done! Just like a big turkey! Next post I will move on from these snow pics!

Okay see I have been out of it so long that I posted this backwards---so scroll down and read then go up to see the pics! Or whatever makes sense to ya. Hanging out with Santa at our Church Building-Do-Dude and Blue boy wanted an air soft gun and Uperman wanted to be away from Santa! He did swipe a candy cane first though. We went to Springerville and cut down our Christmas tree with Nee Nee and New BIL. Yeah! Blue Boy wasn't wearing a Blue Jacket, but, guess what color his sweat shirt was? He was creating a snow angel and loving it until about 10 minutes later he was balling his eyes out because he was freezing. Hubby and I taking a pic in the snow storm after we found the perfect tree. I didn't look the best but, what do ya expect? After it was decorated it was Beautiful! No that snowball didn't get Hubby-Darn it! Here is the gang, my fam! We decided that we will keep each other and not send anyone off with Santa to work in his toy shop-(We did have some volunteers). Behind us - the perfect tree- so we cut it and took it with us! No laughing either, it was the perfect tree, I am serious!
