Wow! It's been a year since I last updated this blog. I guess I got stuck on facebook and neglected the blog. :) There's just not enough time for everything I'd like to do. Oh well! One good thing... I still have the Valentine's theme going, so I guess I don't have to change that for a while. Well, I figured it was time to type up a quick update....

BJ is learning all kinds of stuff on the computer. He blows my mind with it every day. His latest plan is to make an app for the Ipod/Iphone. He comes up with several new ideas. The trick is finding one that's not already available. They have an app for everything!! Anyway, he plans to make a bunch of money and is already planning what to do with it. And paying his tithing is at the top of the list... what a good kid! He also just started talking about wanting to play football in high school. Hard to believe that is only a year and a half away! I think he figures he'll be able to impress the girls by playing football. :)

Zeke is in first grade and learning to read. He's doing great and learning lots of new things. He has a really good teacher, and Zeke just loves her. He struggles with listening and following directions (especially if it's more than a 1-part direction) so that's what we are working on right now. He is very outgoing and loves to play with friends. He's a cutie! He is also playing Jr. Jazz basketball right now, and loves it! He loves just about any sport really. I just went and watched his game yesterday, and he played the best so far this year. I keep forgetting to bring my camera to his games to get pics. Maybe I just need to get a good phone with a great camera on it so I always have one with me. I can never remember to bring a camera!

As for me... my new interest is yoga. I've been practicing for 3 months now and really love it! It's a hot yoga called Bikram Yoga. I can't tell you how good it makes me feel. I know it is so good for my body, and hope to keep doing it for a long time, possibly the rest of my life! It definitely has healing powers. It has also helped me to keep the weight off that I lost. By the way, I lost a total of 25 lbs! Woohoo! What a huge difference it has made for me. I feel so much better about myself.

Well, that's about it for now. I'll try and have pictures to post and post again soon!

Hello, my name is Emily, and I have O.C.D....

Yes, it is true. I finally figured out what it is that I suffer from. It is serious. I just finished the last book in the Twilight saga, and now I just want to read them all over again! Wow, Stephenie Meyer is awesome. Now I just have to figure out where to find Edward...

Awesome movie, too! Can't wait for the next one!

Happy 2009!

Happy 2009 everyone!
I know it's been a while since I've posted. I have no lame excuse to offer. But I did realize that I still had my Christmas theme going on and January is almost over. So I decided it was time to give my blog a little bit of attention. We got new pictures taken, and my sister was the talented photographer! You can see them on the top and sides of the blog. We also got some cute pictures of all the grandkids to give my mom for her birthday. So I'm going to post a couple of them because they are soooo adorable!!

Doesn't BJ have a long tongue??? Shocked
