Jacen danced

Okay I just had to share that Jacen danced today. It was the cutest thing. We happened to be at the high school's Homecoming Assembly. Scott has been acting as ASB Advisor since the school year began. The teacher is returning in November from taking care of her parents (her father was diagnosed with Cancer and mother is in a wheel chair), so Jacen and I needed to see what Daddy has been up to. The assembly was really great. When the Cheerleaders got up to do their dance Jacen totally started dancing, he was rocking his body back and forth and was moving his arms too. That would be Scott's good teaching, he is always moving Jacen to the music. I will see if I can get any of his moves on video to share with all of you.

I was "Tagged"

Well My dear, dear sister Holly "Tagged" me about a week and a half ago. I was caught at a busy time and am finally making the time to answer the questions involved. She said she knew I would do it...she is right. But first I am going to tag others. I love reading what everyone else answers for these silly questions. So lets see who has not been tagged yet??

1. Eliza Elmer-- I know you will be excited to do this :)

2. Lara Seaver-- Come on you know you want to do it.

3. Beth Robinson- Please, please, please :P


What is his name? Scott

How long have you been together? Married nearly 3 years (November 13th)

How long did you date? Technically only 4 months, but we saw a lot of each other in that short time. We first met 8 years earlier, and knew each others families, which made things nice :). Scott says that his mouth dropped open when he saw me walk up the stairs in New Hampshire right off my mission.

Who eats more? Food--him, but I am not too far behind. Dessert--that would be me. Although, if I ask him if he wants dessert and he says no, there is a 50% chance that I too will go with out dessert.

Who said I love you first? Depends on who you ask, and what you think "saying I love you first" truly means. You decide, here are the details: He played me a song that expressed how much he loved me (the words didn't technically come from his mouth) . Song ends and I say "Scott, I am falling in love with you" (just a side note... remember I am just off my mission and the word falling is huge in this statement). Then he later states, "I love you". So who do you think it was? The song=Scott, Me with "falling", or Scott with the exact words :)

Who is taller? Scott

Who sings better? Scott does. I don't like my voice.

Who is smarter? Scott!!

Whose temper is worse? I don't know. What is temper really?? Why are you asking me so many questions?!

Who does the laundry? Me. It isn't expected of me though and I am thanked for doing it.

Who does the dishes? Usually me...although Scott helps with this on the weekends and such. He is very good to help around the house. He took care of all of these things while I was finishing up college.

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Looking at the bed...Scott. Laying in the It is always so confusing to answer questions like that.

Who pays the bills? Scott. He likes to do it together, but I am usually just sitting next to him while he pays them.

Who mows the lawn? Well, we don't have a lawn...but if we did it would probably be Scott.

Who cooks dinner? Usually me...but Scott does cook too.

Who drives when you are together? Scott does 90% of the time.

Who is more stubborn? We are both rather stubborn....trick question!

Who is the first to admit when they are wrong? I am.

Whose parents do you see the most? I would say mine since they only live 2 1/2 hours away...but we have seen Scott's parents quite a bit too.

Who kissed who first? Scott kissed me :) (when I was reading him all my responses he said...if we waited for you to kiss me, we would have waited forever)

Who asked who out? That would be Scott. He called me to see how the transition off the mission was going. I had no clue where Lancaster was until we had hung out as FRIENDS for a couple of weeks. I was shocked to find out that he was driving 3 hours to come "hang out".

Who proposed? Scott. I didn't know he already had the ring (even though we shopped for it together) I was not expecting it to happen that night. I was swept off my feet.

Who is more sensitive? I would say me.

Who has more friends? We pretty much have the same friends since marriage. I like to keep contact with everyone from the past as well though.

Who wears the pants in the family? Scott does although I am not afraid to voice my opinion :P

Some Pictures of our Little Guy

Jacen somehow pulled himself up on this unstable TV tray. I grabbed the camera (you have to document these sort of things), Scott grabbed Jacen. We are going to have to be on our toes from now on!! Just a couple weeks ago a friend said, "your life is going to change real quickly". I am afraid she is right!

Jacen with a piece of Celery, a very good teether by the way. I love this picture!

Jacen really enjoys the swings! This was his second time and he was still all smiles.

Which city do you belong?

We found this quiz on our friend Erika's blog. Scott and I both belong in Rome. Go ahead and take the quiz for yourself.
You Belong in Rome

You're a big city soul with a small town heart
Which is why you're attracted to the romance of Rome
Strolling down picture perfect streets, cappuccino in hand
And gorgeous Italian people - could life get any better?

On Saturday...

We had a knock on our door. Two boys were standing there. One then says, "Coach I didn't know you lived just down the street from me." Anyway these two boys were offering to mow our lawn...kind of funny if you know about Yucca Valley. He quickly corrected himself, "I mean rake and hula hoe your yard". Okay so you are probably laughing, who rakes their dirt, and what in the world is a hula hoe (luckily the previous owners left us one). We actually found it quite humorous when we first moved here and noticed that our neighbor has a gardener, that people rake their front dirt. But boy do our trees drop so much, and the rabbit poop. I started wanting to rake our yard for the first time this summer, about July. Scott knew I really wanted it done so yippee these boys did it for us. They worked for a long time on the yard and it looks GREAT!! Here is a pictures Too bad I didn't take a before picture.
I think they worked for 4 1/2 hours (Scott tried to let them go after 2 1/2 but they said they wanted to finish). I just took this picture of another tree on our lot. It is smaller but will give you an idea of what our front looked like. What a difference, huh??

Scott also had Jacen for a guys night. It was nice to be able to to eat dinner and watch the RS Broadcast without interruptions. It was weird not to have Jacen with me though. I left the house at 3:15 and Scott and Jacen returned from watching the BYU game after 9:00pm. Jacen just loves time with Daddy.

These are two pictures I couldn't help but share. We have a few magazines that have been designated Jacen's. Here he is ripping them. He loves doing this. Maybe I shouldn't have let him do this. Soon I will have to teach him that we don't rip books...but for now it is board books anyway.

The second picture was taken yesterday. He as able to pull himself up on his toy. The bottom of his feet are on the floor. Crazy! I keep him in the same room as me now. Not only to avoid crashes and eating things he shouldn't, but to see his accomplishments. He is growing up so fast. If you haven't seen him recently, you should plan a trip. We love company :)
