Colby and I went bowling with Brittany, Cade and the kids a couple of weekends ago. 
 We had a blast, the kids didnt make it through the first game though. 
This picture is hilarious of Kyrah!

While we were gone...

Krone picked up a bad habit...

Such a bad dog.

thanksgiving weekend!

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!
We went down to Kinston to eat with part of the Howard clan!
I forgot to take pictures on THanksgiving day, but I got plenty of pictures on Friday!
We started our day off with a large snake skin found in our bathroom!

That was an experience!
Then we hit the road and headed down towards the ocean! 
It was my first time on the Atlantic coast!

Colby couldnt seem to get a picture of me just standing there, so Im walking in all the pictures. I picked the best one! 
Then we went to Ft. Macon. It is an old civil war fort that has been made into a monument.

It was really neat to see a piece of history like Fort Macon.
Oh and we took this cool shadow shot!


We had our first snow of the season! 
It wasn't a lot but it was still beautiful!

Krone wasnt so sure about it though!

I didn't think it would happen..

I thought I was stronger...

Unfortunately, it was too enticing,

even in the first chapter.

I'm talking about Twilight.

Half done with #1. Ordered #2 & #3.

They should be here by Saturday or Monday.

And now I only have 10 days (or so my mother informed me)

until the movie hits theaters!!


If you haven't, You most definitely should!

I was looking around on Yahoo one day and found a list of free things. One of the things was language courses. Now, they arent Extremely detailed but they give you the basics and conversation layouts!
Hey, Its a start!
I started last week and have gone through 8 lessons of Spanish so far. There is 12 weeks worth for Spanish, Italian, Greek, French, Chinese, Portugese, and German.
I'm on my way to being bilingual, trilingual, quadralingual....etc. :)
To join me on my language journey:

GQ Dog??

It's starting to get cold outside and we have been having a hard time getting Krone to go out there. So Colby and I bought him an orange sweater from Target! He loves it! He even modeled it for us! What do you think?

Farmers Market

Colby and I went to the Triad Farmers Market. It is only a couple miles the condo, but this was my first time! Unfortunately we didnt by anything because they dont take plastic, and that all we had!.. Maybe next time!

Colby found a hat-
I found a cat!
This fuzzy owl was adorable!
Love! Im in a pumpkin hut!!

There were tons of pumpkins!

Im a cat! Colby wouldnt put his face in one!

We had so much fun and afterwards we went to a huge antique store. We were tired, but the half we did go through had lots of neat stuff! I was glad Colby had a Saturday off so we could spend it together!

Conference Sunday @ the Haderlies

Colby and I went to his sister Brittany's house for General Conference sunday. I made cinnamon rolls for brunch/snacking on and we also brought Krone. 
After what seemed like 30 minutes of kneading the dough, and baking time, they turned out wonderfully! 

We ate almost all of them!! 

The kids enjoyed Krone (well Rylan enjoyed Krone, Kyrah wasnt so sure if she did or not!)
But did Krone enjoy them? 

Here is Krone just minding his own business...

Then Rylan came along!

and puts Krone in a headlock!

but Colby saves the day!
(Actually we were just trying to get a picture of Rylan and Krone, but dog wasnt cooperating. )

It was a fun day! Im glad that we were able to spend time with family!

I got motivated...

It's not a very good picture, and I didn't get to do the cupcake style because of time issues. 
But here they are!


One of these days I will post my one and only picture of my cupcake pops!!

They were cute.. and the rumor is they were mighty yummy!!

8 People to Tag:


Well here's to my first time being tagged, and twice!! Thanks Ann! I am supposed to type 6 Quirky things about myself, and then tag 6 others. Here it goes!

1. I apparently have stretchy skin. Colby loves to grab my skin and pull it. I tell him not too, but he is fascinated that my skin will come off the bone like a whole inch. Weird? maybe, maybe not. I just know he doesnt have stretchy skin. So Im like a super hero or something!

2. I dont like watching certain people eat. It all started when I saw this documentary of a morbidly obese man who was trying to get gastric-bypass surgery was recorded eating a regular amoung of food (for him). This was like 5 full normal size plates of food. It was all over his lips and just GROSS!!! SO thank you Discovery Channel for causing me to be disturbed by this!

3. I am Clumsy. Not all the time, just mostly. Like last weekend when I spilled my cup of RED Punch at the dinner table, not once...but twice, doing the EXACT same thing. Needless to say, I didnt touch the cup after that. I also tripped over a tractor, but thats a different story.

4. I dont like needles. This is a common thing for people. For me though, I tense up, get dizzy, shake, have to talk myself into getting blood drawn or shots, or whatever. It wasnt good when I had to get an IV in my hand either. I do know that I need to get over this fear before I have kids.

5. I still listen to a Vegas radio station almost everyday. Im sure that people that walk in the lobby and here the traffic report are confused to what they are hearing, but oh well!! I just cant rid myself of Mark & Mercedes in the Morning, I dont know why!

6. I get claustrophobic when people try to pop/pick at my face. Colby enjoys popping and so does my mom. If they are trying for more than a minute I get really antsy and am done with that. Unfortanately, it doesnt always work with getting them to stop though.

I tag: Brittany, Carly, DeAnna, Brooke, Christal, and Courtney!

Saturday, September 20, 2008


I didnt get a lot of pictures while we were down there, but I got a few funny pics and some pics of what we did!

Mike wanted us to push him around in the bell cart!

On the strip it wasnt the girls we had to watch out for! There was a dancing donut!!! Scandalous!!

Then there were some spooning lions! Even lions like to cuddle!

Colby, me, Brittany, Cade, Mike, and Dalene all went to go see Steve Wyrick the magician! It was a good show and we all enjoyed it!

It was a fun trip and Im glad everyone (almost) was there!!

Bathtime and First Haircut

Well Krone is a little dog, but when we give him a bath, he looks like a rat. A cute rat, but still...
What do you think?

Krone's hair was getting kind of long. I thought he was cute, but it was almost covering his eyes. Plus he was starting to look a little rough after a hard week of having fleas, and us getting rid of his fleas. I learned my lesson. No flea treatment, no grass/outside/anything!! Things of the South that I never knew about until I moved here. Anyways, yesterday afternoon Colby decided to give him a haircut. He did a good job, He couldn't get his left side very good because Krone kept laying on it, but everything is looks good!

Heres some pics of his dew!

He's innocent!

Krone is in the process of being house trained! When we are home is 99% potty trained, but we are still a little nervous to let him run around the house all day. One day when I left for the gym I left him in the master/bathroom/closet. Lots of room to play.. and of course, make messes!

He looks so innocent in that picture!!
He finally discovered toilet paper. I was warned about this, but I was nieve and thought he never would. There was toilet paper all over all 3 rooms! The majority of it was in the doorway though! Silly puppy!
