Due to Michelle still being in Utah (my brother in law Aaron) can over last night at 11:30pm to come play some xbox with Derek! I was a sleep so I really didn't care to much what they did, and long as they didn't yell and wake me up! Yes that has happened before. So, much to my surprise when I woke up at 5:30 this morning to use the restroom and they were still up playing. I honestly could not believe my eyes. I am pretty sure that I called them morons and went back to bed! Derek finally crawled into bed at 6:30! I will never understand the strance that little boys can undergo when they are playing with thier toys! Shocking. I had to take a picture of them so I could remember that it actually happened! oh goodness. If anyone was wondering...yes that white laundry basket is full of Derek's candy. We had to upgrade from a basket! Just another one if his weaknesses!
Derek was working up in Pheonix the Friday before Valentine's Day and we (my baby and I) decided to surprise him and bring him a heart shaped pizza from Papa Johns. It is just the little things that we do to show that we love each other. The pizza was quite good! We all enjoyed it!!
Michelle and I were trying to come up with a list of why Oregon was so great...well we didn't come up with much. I was there a week and only saw the sun one time for about twenty minutes. This was a shock coming from my wonderful sunny home. It was decided however that the best this about Oregon is the French Vanilla Bean yogurt from the Tillamook Factory. You may think this is a slight exaggeration, but this is seriously the best yogurt I have ever tasted. My brother in law Aaron brought some down for me from Oregon and I won't even let Derek eat it. It's all mine!!
In January, before school started up again, I packed my bags and headed up to spend a week in Forest Grove, Oregon with my sister in law Michelle. Here is a picture of Sami with a cow at the Tillamook Cheese Factory. Let me tell you it was good! We got some killer tomato soup, grilled cheese, and ice cream while we were there.
Just some more fun shots of the kiddos at the factory!!
The first day I got there the kids got into a suitcase and couldn't help but play dress up. hahaha...I loved it. They are just so dang cute!!
We had a blast that week, and I realized how grateful I was that I am only having one baby. I think I would go crazy having more than one. As much as I love my nieces and nephew they could be a handful. It was great being able to visit with them. I seriously can't wait until they come down this week to Arizona!!!! Yea for moving!
