A Leetle update

Still NO blankies....Still looking.....still praying.....still

We have an appt. with a stake presidency member tomorrow night, they are redoing our Bishopric this coming sunday so we will see what happens. Brent is currently the 2nd counselor in the Bishopric, we kinda think he will be called to be a counselor again.

The kids like school, they don't want to get ready for school in the mornings, but they like it when they get there.

Sarah starts preschool next week, we find out tomorrow at orientation who her teacher is and she gets to see her classrooms. She is sooo excited.

That is it for now, time to get kids ready for bed.
(told you it was a little update)

Case of the Missing....

Blankies!!! Since Sarah was born she has had 2 blankets, one white, one pink. They were my favorite and they soon became her favorite.

In her infant pictures taken at the hospital she even had it wrapped around her. (she is the bottom left)

We took them with us on all vacations...

She wakes up in the morning and carries them with her until she is ready to really wake up and play....

She keeps warm with them.....

Even wants them in Christmas photos....

But on friday they went Missing.... Gone..... no clue where they are!?
I have looked everywhere, drawers, cupboards, under couches, in bins, garbage cans (even the big garbage
can outside), the van, under other blankets, closets, under beds, pantry, behind the Tv, piano, coaches.....Where in the world are they???????

thoughts lately

These are just a few thoughts that are running through my mind lately:

trying to make 4:30am my friend for the next year and how to do that...any ideas on how to accomplish this?? (Some days I almost convince myself to get dressed for class then "accidently" fall asleep on the couch before I go and miss class....I haven't though)

What will happen with our church callings in the next couple weeks/month?

How do I keep Daniel from climbing on the back of the couch and falling off everyday? that is his Favorite thing to do, but he doesn't get that he will fall off and get hurt....

Am I or my kids really ready for summer to end and the school year to start next week?????

How can I clean out my house without it taking Hours upon hours upon hours?? organizing company???

should I order some new good books or read the Twilight series? (no, I have not read them yet, but have had them for almost 2 years)

Why can't I lose more weight each week? I know 1-2lbs is healthy and great but really!.... why can't I lose 5 in 1 week for once and be like those on biggest loser?

How can I impove my attitude?

What can I do to better my patience and teaching skills?

What time is bed time and how early can I get my kids into bed???

Does anyone really read this thing and is it boring?

Will it ever stop raining?

Have I really been married almost 12 years? where does the time go?

(I will have to capture Daniel climbing on the back of the couch so you can see how cool he thinks he is when he gets up frustrating but soooo cute!)

Kitten Search....OVER

After Liddy passed away, we told the kids we would get a kitten, so after our trip out to Utah we started the search. We looked on the internet, the newspapers, the ARL, and a number of pet stores. We finally found a little non-profit furry friends refuge that had a little one named Beethoven and we fell in love. Here he is with a new name and a new home, announcing the newest member of the Bean household, Tigger Liddy Bean:

He purrs constantly and he loves the kids. He is always climbing up on their laps when they are sitting on the floor, playing with them and his new toys and does his little paws on them.
The other cats are curious and come to see what the little meows are and they are sniffing around where the kitty is, but so far so good.
We are keeping him in our half bath downstairs at night and during the day when he wants to sleep and blocking off the family room when he wants to be out and play. We will do this until the other cats get more use to him, hopefully for only about a week, then let him explore and be out more. This should be interesting!!!!!
