Future Podcasters!!

I have been studying up to start a new business. Yes, Yes, I know!! I am always starting something new! I want to start a website or two of things I really like, such as being frugal, sweepstakes and genealogy. As I was reading up on somethings this week I was reading about podcasting. So I got the idea that Charles and his brother Kirk could do a podcast on Sports!! They both LOVE sports and could talk forever about sports. Not only can they talk forever about sports but they can be quite entertaining to listen to when they get together. So I finally convinced Charles to call Kirk. They both agreed! Yeah!! So now I have to do all the research on how to run a podcast, you know, all the nuts and bolts! If anyone has any knowledge on the subject let me know. We are also going to be putting up a blog that Charles and maybe Kirk (haven't talked to him about that) will update daily about what is going on in sports. I don't know about Kirk but Charles is a fabulous writer (he just hates to) so it will be fun to see what he writes!

One of my visiting teachers was telling me about how her husband started a podcast and then was contacted to do a radio show and now he is on a board for latino issues. So things can happen. If people like their podcast maybe they will get a sponser and so on. We will see if not they will just have a lot of fun together each week!

A fun Enrichment night!

Tonight I went to enrichment night at church. We all brought things from our houses that we didn't want. We had a dinner and then we went to the Relief Society room were all the "stuff" was. All the sisters went "shopping"! It was so fun. I got rid of several books and some baskets also the boppy I never used! I got a case of ready made formula! Yeah!! I also got some crib sheets, a crib toy. Also some clothes for Lauren and Jed. I got a great nativity set too! It was so fun! It was a great night!

No so sunny day!

Today the wind is howling and it is bring in a storm. We had such a beautiful week. It is hard to say goodbye! Lauren got a sunburn twice this week so we had to breakout the sunscreen. I guess it gets put up again for a bit!
Today we only had two hours of church. We meet in the afternoon and needed to be out for the Draper temple dedication. So I gave a talk and didn't have to give the lesson I prepared! I was actually disappointed because the lesson was "I am thankful for fish". We were going to have goldfish crackers and go fishing. Maybe someday we can do the lesson!

Lauren and her songs!

Lauren loves to watch videos of songs that we pull up from YouTube on our computer. When Charles sits down to the desktop she says "I want song! I want song!". Then he first pick is "Jesus Take Wheel". She love the song by Carrie Underwood 'Jesus Take the Wheel'. Her next choice is always "Under a Sea" which is 'Under the Sea" from Little Mermaid. I took a video clip of her watching 'Jesus Take the Wheel'. She is pretty funny. I wish I would have kept recording because as soon as the song was over she says "Another song!!" video

A Sunshiny Day in Utah

We had a beautiful day here in Utah! Temperatures actually got up to 82 degrees! The kids were off of school today and they played outside most of the day. Elise has been wobbling around for two days now. She sprained her ankle on Wednesday at school and only when she feels like it will she walk on it. She definately milking it for all it is worth! It is still a little swollen but not much.

The kids!

Jed is conquering his bedwetting! We bought a bedwetting alarm on amazon.com. Here is a picture of it:


It is a great alarm! There is a sensor that attaches to his underware, then a wire plugs into the bottom of this alarm. When he starts to wet, the alarm lights up (red flashing light), vibrates and goes through 8 different alarm noises. We have used it for almost a month. Jed has now gone six days without wetting at all. Not even a drop!! Before we tried the alarm we tried a pill the doctor prescribed that didn't work at all for him. I am so excited for him! He is almost 8 years old. He never complains about wetting and we don't make a big deal about it. I am sure it really is a big deal to him! Elise has also gone without Goodnights this month and only wet the bed twice! Charles and I are so excited to not have to buy Goodnights on top of two different sizes of diapers!

Lauren should be ready to potty train in the next few months. We already bought princess underware for her! We got her back into cloth diapers this month. It is nice not to have to buy as many diapers. We still put her in disposable diapers at night. We haven't done the cloth thing for Ian as of yet! We use cloth diapers called fuzzi bunz and they are great! Here is a picture of them:

They come in all different colors and some patterns too. We have a lot of different colors for size 1 but Lauren only has yellow and white. We let her choose which she wants to wear!

Ian is getting so big! We took him to the doctor last week and he was 13lbs 14oz. That means he weighs half as much as Lauren! He is 4 months and Lauren is 2 1/2 years!! I believe he is going to be the biggest out of all of my children. He is now giggling a lot. It is really fun! He is trying to sit himself up when he is propped up. He is rolling from his belly to his back. I just can't believe he is so big!!

I am Poky these days!

I just realized it has been so long since I posted last! I have been super busy! I started a new business. Of course you know I love to enter sweepstakes! So I started a business handprinting 3x5 cards or papers for people. Most mail in sweepstakes require you to send in printed 3x5 cards with your name, address, phone number. It is time consuming to fill these out. So I do it for others. I know most of you don't need my services but check out my website www.fjhandprinting.com I am proud!! I have had only one order so far but her daughter is running a sweepstakes banquet in Maryland and emailed me to see if I wanted to donate or advertise there! Of couse I said "YES!". There will be at least 70 people attending, so I will get a little exposure!
