How life has been.

Life has been really good.  I am recovering really well from my brain tumor removal surgery.  I am physically feeling back to normal.  My hair is growing so fast at least that is what everyone keeps telling me.  For me my hair is  only needs to grow about 3 more inches or so and I will love it.  
Funny thing is right before my surgery, I remember looking in the mirror and saying I wish I could just shave all my hair off.  I think this was the Lords way of helping me get ready for all my hair to be shaved off.  However I do  LOVE short hair.  I like my hair about the length it is right now, however you can still see my scar and I don't like that so much.  I love wearing bows and headband I have made for my hair.  

Here are some cute pictures of me. 

Here is a picture of my eye's if you noticed on the first picture my eye is starting to move left.  I am super excited.  I thought that would take the longest to heal and it is healing quicker to heal than my left side of my face being not numb anymore.  What also makes me excited is that my eye does have the 6th nerve.  The doctor was never sure I did after I had surgery because he could not see the nerve.  Yea my eye is starting to move again.

Eli is getting so BIG.  He is now 16 months old.  He is starting to climb on everything.  He now running.  He loves to laugh.  I ask him to kiss me and he gives me a big hug instead.  He just got four molars in the back of his mouth.  He either moves or sleeps.  In other words he is a very, very active baby/toddler.  The other day I could hear him playing in the kitchen I thought he was playing with the dishes, like he always does.  I go in there and check on him and he had gotten somehow into the fridge and took out the eggs and broke all of them.  Not only that but he but some in his mouth.  Yuck.  Yes I had to take a picture.  Eli loves eggs and it looks like he enjoyed them raw too.  

The kids are just having fun together.  We went to a line dancing party that our stake had.  It was a lot of fun. Even Joshua lined danced.  It was a lot of fun.  Our stake will be doing it again in January.  The sports stake director is hoping to be able to have line dancing party once a month.   
The picture on the right is of the girls trying to tackle Caleb.  They had fun TRYING.  

Marysa has been super busy too.  She just finished playing volleyball.  She played really well.  I love watching her play volleyball.  She also sings in the school choir plus she has achievement days every other week.  She loves being involved in lots of stuff.  She is just getting bigger to fast.  She is one beautiful girl.  

 Caleb and Marysa are in there school Barnett's school choir.  They had a December choir concert.  I really enjoyed seeing them sing.  I like that they both like being in it.

Funny thing is that i was looking over the choir memeber's names, looking for Caleb and Marysa's name.  I looked and looked and I could not find Caleb's name at all.  I was really sad thinking that they forgot to put his name on the paper.  I finally found it and guess what it was the first name on the list.

 Caleb has been busy.  He will be playing basketball soon.  He went to a team tryout.  The boys all show what they can do and than all the coaches get together and choose who they would like on there team.  Caleb did well at the tryout and 2 coaches came up to Caleb and asked him what his name was.

He also gave a oral report at school about Russia.  He did a real good job.  He did a power point presentation, which he did all by himself.  I am so proud of him.  He is growing up so fast.   My 11 year old is now taller than me.  I knew that one day he would be taller than me I just didn't think it would happen at the young age of 11.

I don't have any pictures yet but Caleb broke his wrist.  The brake is very small.  Azalea lost one of her front teeth.  Azalea is one smart girl.  It amazes me how smart she is.  She learns everything so quick.  I am sure she will be smarter than me by time she is  done with kindergarten.  

On Sunday Andrew and I where running a little late so we sent Marysa and Caleb without us to church so that they could save us a spot.  Josh and Azalea where not happy and took off running to catch up with them. Even though I told them no.   I wasn't happy about it but I did know that Caleb and Marysa would watch them.  I really couldn't chase them because I was outside with Eli and I could not leave him alone to catch them.  

Anyways Andrew and I get to Church a few minute after they arrived and I see Caleb, Marysa and Joshua out in the hall way.  I asked where Azalea was and they said in the chapel.   I walk in there and there is Azalea saving a row for us.  It was the 2nd row up front.  Not only that but she had the hymn book opened up to the right page that the congregation was singing.  Page 177.   I was impressed most of the kindergartners her age are still learning how to count to 100.  She knows how to count above 100.   Not only that she was on the right page.  She was also being really reverent.   

Wow,  life has been good.  I am so blessed.
