Strep Flacture

Well that is what Porter called it anyway, yes the day before Turkey Day I decided to finally take Porter to the dr. because he has been complaining that his foot has been hurt for a number of days. Well then I noticed him really walking weird on it, so off we went. Well after xrays and some tests the Doctor was 98% sure he has a stress fracture in his foot. What do they do for that you may ask, not much but an ace wrap and try to take it easy and no strenous excercise. Have they ever met any other 5 yr olds? And when asked how did he injure it? I shook my head and said he jumps ALOT!! off of everything. I don't know when it occured or how it happened. May I please have my mother of the year award now, thank you! And when he called Grandma to tell her the news he said, Grandma I have strep flacture, and I get to ace it. well close enough

Long Overdue..


I should have blogged about this when it happened but I am just not that quick. On September 17th Brody earned his arrow of light and crossed over from cub scouts to boy scouts. He worked very hard and we were so proud of him. This is him crossing the rope bridge to meet his new boy scout leaders on the other side, Caden (his best buddy cousin) and him got to do it on the same night so it was pretty neat. I can't believe how old he is getting I know I will soon blink and he will be moving out. I don't want these moments to pass by so quickly. Besides this is one on those times when you think I can't be old enough to have a 11 yr old. BUT I AM!!!! Anyway enjoy the pic and the hat is explained by his amazing leaders whose son makes a birthday cake hat for the boys leaving in their birthday month.

I don't get it.....

Okay please I don't want to offend anyone, but I am just putting words to paper and sort out my feelings.
OK I have been reading all the things about what is happening in LA and SLC right now and it makes me kinda nervous not because I am afraid of what the crowd will do, I think they will probably stay calm, just because of what it is to come as the church takes this very important stand. And a mob mentality is never good!!
I have to admit I am a little conflicted about this particular issue, Please don't get me wrong I truly believe that marriage is between one man and one woman. I just don't think that it should be a goverment issue. This is the other thing I have about the whole issue, in my beliefs marriage is forever and there is only one way that can happen so to me I am kinda like, so what?
However I do not want a happy gay day at my kids school, I teach my kids what they need to know about ANYTHING to do with lifestyle choices. I will handle that thank you I don't need a goverment enforced tolerance day. Although I do realize not all parents do that.
Okay and this is my other issue, why all the haters to our church did not they not see the press conference with like 30 pastors, preachers, etc from other churches claiming VICTORY?
And my favorite was the lady on TV calling President Monson, President Munsun hello get educated before you go on TV.
Also I just read this article about how HOLLYWOOD is getting involved in the fight against all this hatred and how they are going to be throwing money left and right to combat this issue. This drives me crazy!!! How is it that people who do not lead normal lives, most of them never half to worry about making their mortgage, buy groceries, or pay medical bills. They have to make up things to throw money at, yet they are the first to argue about how horrible our economy is when it doesn't even effect them? If you are so enraged over the economy walk in East LA and find a single mother who is working 3 or 4 jobs, because her husband ran off to be like 50 cent and pay her house off, or help her kids have school clothes, or tutors. ANYONE???I love that they think that I give a $#$!@ about who they are voting for? They are not the main stream public, they do not represent the norm in our country. When they get stressed out they fly to a secluded island, I eat a piece of chocolate, which you can guess i have been stressed alot LOL! I have never been one to vote straight party I always look at the canidate and do my homework of who I should vote for. And even though I did not vote for the pres elect I will support him because he his the President of my Country and I am always proud of that!! I wish him the best and I do hope he succeeds, because again my country. I probably will not agree with everything he does, but that can be said of every president for me. I am just tired of living in this state of anger ALL THE TIME!! I am literally tired. So many of us are going off half-cocked without ever getting all the facts and making assumptions about things before getting the full story. So tonight I am praying I can be kinder, more loving, and understanding to everyone. Please don't mistake this as my hippy movement...just my human movement.
