Do you ever have one of those nights that you just want to curl up with a big bowl of ice cream, put chocolate syrup on top and then lick (I said lick) the bowl clean? Yeah, I am having one of those nights. Fortunately for me I only had about a 1/2 a cup of ice cream left in the carton to eat. I made a pact with my friend Carla that if I wanted to pig out that I would call her and she is supposed to talk me out of it-I still have a few pounds of baby weight to lose-but I was hoping she would just have ESP and call me to stop me. I was too driven to call her. Right now I have no regrets.....we will see about tomorrow though. Ahhhh, gotta love being a mom. :) But hey, my house is SPOTLESS! 4 kids and all....Can't wait for the hubby to get home!

Right now we are temporarily down to one toilet (long story) but expecting to be back to two within the next few days. So, little Lolo comes running up the stairs screaming she needs to go potty, and as she sits down Sporty comes storming in freaking out that HE needs to go. I tell him to chill for a second until she is done. Well, he storms off pouting and Lolo finishes. I call to him to tell him it's his turn and he does not answer. Next thing I hear is the back door shutting-HE PEED IN THE BACKYARD! He says to me, "I NEEDED to go so I peed out by the shed." I had to turn my head to keep from laughing! Such a BOY! So, moral of the story, stay away from yellow snow.

So I have commited to running the RAGNAR race/Wasatch Back. Me, crazy me! Even though I have been playing competitive sports my entire life- even now- I have NEVER ran for fun. When I was in high school we had to run "tours" around the school for basketball conditioning-I HATED it! I would rather run up and down the court with a ball shooting layups for an hour than run for 20 minutes around the school or even on the track. Well, this last pregancy was real bumpy for me (lots of crap that put me high risk for uterine eruption) so I had to take it easy-the not-quite-bed-rest for about 3 months. Now, that is very hard for me to do when I eat, sleep, and breathe working out, chasing my other kids, and am on the go all the time. Even after the birth of baby Z I had to "relax" for 3 months (that's about 6 months total!)-I had some complications after the 4th c-section-so when September 10th arrived, and I was "cleared" for normal living, I took off running, literally. I have a good friend that would run with me about 3x a week, at night after my 4 kids and her 5 were asleep. Then winter set in and all the gunk that came with it, so we took some time off. Elise-I dare say I am ready to take off again. So anyway, I am going to be training for not only the RAGNAR, but I am also training for the Marathon Relay. I am super excited to train for both, but also to run both with my good friend Carla and my sister-in-law Bradi. Running is something I hope to maintain the rest of my life. I always feel soooo good after a nice long run. Plus, it's not bad in helping me lose the last of my baby weight, and to maintain my girlish figure! Hee hee hee hee hee... Now if I can only lay off the chocolate....

So my hubby commented that Lolo needs some blog time-so here's a spot for you my wee one. Last week was all about Diva with her birthday, then the family party and now a friend party, and little Lolo was bent all out of shape. I could her Diva crying downstairs on many occasions, saying, "BUT IT'S MY BIRTHDAY! QUIT RUINING IT FOR ME!" Very sad indeed-sniffle, sniffle. Apparently, my little girl has turned into the green-eyed monster and does not like that Diva got all the attention-never mind that her own birthday was two weeks before. Such a stink! I never grew up with sisters, so this is all new to me, and frankly, I don't like it. My sister arrived when I was in 7th grade, so there has never been that rivalry. Anyway, back to Lolo-she is the funniest, mischevious little twerp you will ever meet. She teases Trevor and me all the time-her favorite is when Trevor hugs me and will yell out, "Kiss! Now hug. Kiss! Now hug. DIP!" and then she giggles this daring little giggle. Oh she makes me smile. She is always calling Trevor "stinkah"-they have a tight bond. I am posting a video of her from about 6 months ago that I think is hilarious, so I hope you enjoy it too. She LOVES to sing. Oh yeah, it was right before bedtime and she has a MOP for hair and it is not done. I just had a baby-alot of things got neglected the first few weeks after baby Z's birth.
Okay, so I couldn't get the video to download, but believe me, IT. WAS. DARLING! If I can figure out how to get it on here, I will. So these pictures will have to do...I get a little bit paranoid when we are around water, so that is why she looks like the summer version of "Randy" from "A Christmas Story"
