Here are the long awaited pictures of my newest nephew Aidan. Aidan and his mom came home from the hospital yesterday afternoon around 2:30 and Amy sent me these pictures this morning. Pretty cute, totally bubba, and a little asian looking! I think he is adorable!!! I can't wait to go visit him. Hopefully I will get down there next weekend.

Not much going on here this weekend. I went shopping with Sharon for hours yesterday. HOURS! We had a great time. I got a necklace and some misc stuff, nothing big. She was shopping for an outfit to wear to her son Nick's boot camp graduation. In the first five minutes of shopping she found a suitcase she loved, it was only $500!!!

It is a Brighton! I am sure she would love contributions to her luggage fund! Or better yet everyone call her husband, Greg and pass on the information so he knows what to get her. I think their anniversary is coming up!

We went to church this morning, and then back home for the day. I took a three hour nap! I must have been tired. Anyway, I am going to throw a load of cloths in the washer and get ready for the week!!!

Happy Sunday!

Love ya,

He's Here!!!

Aidan Richards Colburn made his appearance yesterday around 2pm. He was a little over 8lbs! A big boy. Both he and Amy are doing well!!!

No one has sent me pictures yet (Dad), but as soon as they do you will be the first to see them!

On another note, I picked up my new camera Wednesday night and am having a lot of fun playing with it. I will post some pictures tonight. I don't know if I will get to go down and see Aidan this weekend as they will probably stay at the hospital until Saturday. I may go down Sunday for the day. . . I will keep you posted.

Happy WaHoo Day!!! (Friday)

Love ya,

Finally Friday last night! I swear some days I love my job and can be there all day and be totally happy, and some days it is just like "What the *&#@, will this day ever end!" Yesterday was TOTALLY one of those days!

Last night I picked up the boys and took them to A Good Time Out. It is a drop in day care close o our house. I really love that place. It is a little expensive, but totally worth it. They have a lot of really fun things for kids to do while they are there, they do crafts, have a video room, and will even feed them dinner (which they did for Skyler and David last night, including brownies for dessert!) While they were there I did a little cloths shopping then met up with Shannon around 8pm and we went out to this great little Thai restaurant around the corner from our house.

Before we went to get the boys we went by Best Buy and I got this new camera! It is a Casio Exilim Card EX-S770. You can check it out here I am pretty excited about it. In addition to being really small (thin) it has the capacity to do video for 1 hour (odviously not on the highest setting), and it looks cool!!! The only way it could be better would be if it came in PINK. The only downside is that they were out of stock and we had to order it and so I won't have it in my hands until Wednesday. Oh well, Wednesday will be here before I know it.

Today Skyler and I are going to his friend Matthew's house for his birthday party. They don't live to far from us and it should be a lot of fun. David and Shannon will hang out together. I am sure it will entail some nap taking! Tonight I am going out to dinner with the girls to celibrate my friend Anne's birthday. We are meeting up around 7pm. That should also be a lot of fun.
Other exciting news Brock and Amy announced the name for their new baby boy. Drumroll please. . . .
Aidan Richards Colburn!
According to Amy he should be making an appearance any time now. Probably next week!!! We will have to go down and introduce ourselves next weekend. I will have my new camera and promise to take lots of pictures!!!
Well I hope you have a fun and relaxing weekend. I will try and catch up again tomorrow!
Happy Saturday,
Love ya,

Not even v-day yet!

I so totally had this conversation with Shannon where we are not getting each other anything because we just got a wi so I come into the house tonight and look what I found! Now I don't know if I need to run and get him something tomorrow or just be grateful??? Oh well, I will think on this. It's not like I am not in the v-day mood. I have had my fingernails decorated for over a week

I have the little hearts on my thumbs also!

Well, surround yourself with love tomorrow and know that I will be thinking of each and every one of you!


Love Ya,

Today we were getting ready to go to breakfast and the guy who won the show about being a food network star Guy Fieri was making Pizza Lasagna. It has fried pepperoni, italian sausage, and then all the other regular lasagna fixings. I made it tonight for dinner. I had left over sausage, sauce, cheese and noodles so I fixed another regular (hamburger and sausage) lasagna for the freezer. Shannon and the boys LOVED the lasagna. Skyer even asked for seconds!!! Gotta love that! Check it out on His show is called Guy's Big Bite.


Can you see the blue in their hair. They are so funny. Skyler has been asking me for a few days to put gel into his hair, but I keep forgetting so this morning as we were getting ready to go to breakfast I remembered. As soon as Skyler was running around with blue gel in his hair David wanted some too. This is a first for him. They both look so cute!

This is what I call Skyler's rock star look. He was having fun posing for me for about a minute. He calls this one of his mad looks.
Here is a picture of my new glasses. I picked them up from Costco a week ago or so. They are for distance and up close! (old lady that I am becoming) I really like them. They take a little getting used to. They are kind of fuscha colored with peach rims. Most of the time they just look red!
It has been a pretty busy week. Skyler had a birthday party last Saturday, Shannon took him and David and I stayed home. Sunday we didn't do anything of what I had planned. Just kind of hung out. Worked all week. Friday I had a root canal. I am pretty lucky in that I was not in pain! Yesterday mostly running around. Today mostly relaxing. I am running out to the store right now as Shannon has requested lasagna for dinner. Skyler announced that he hates lasagna so more for us! Skyler doesn't have school tomorrow (they close for just about anything) so he is going to Sharon's house to do his valentine's day cards and make cookies!
Oh well, off to the store!
Happy Sunday,
Love Ya,

Well, it has been a little while since I was here so let me give you an update!

I tried a new class at the gym and just love it. . .

I took a spinning class a week ago Monday and I have to tell you, after I got over the pain in my ass (literally!) I absolutely love it!!! I went Monday, Thursday and Saturday.

After the class on Saturday I went down to Orange County for Isabel's third birthday. We had a great time. A little rain, but not much traffic either way, and the boys always have fun seeing the family and playing with Isabel. She had the cutest My Pretty Pony cake that someone that Amy works with made.

Here is a great picture of Isabel and the grandparents!!!

It was so cute to watch her open all of her presents. She got so excited over each one!!! She really is antimated. We spent the night and then made our way home early Sunday morning.

Monday night Shannon and I went to see Jesus Christ Superstar at the Civic Theater downtown. It was a great show and we both really enjoyed it.

Tuesday night I went and got hypnotised. My work was partnering with this hypnotist from Florida to do two seminars. One on weight loss and the other for smoking. I went to the weight loss one. It was really cool. We were there for two hours but it only seemed like 15 minutes. I have been eatting less, wanting foods that are better for me, and drinking more water, so hopefully it worked and it will last! We will see.

Last night I tried to go to a spinning class, but it was cancelled, so instead I walked on the treadmill for 30 minutes.

I am going to try and go to the spinning class on Saturday morning and then hopefully put the kids in a swimming class. Skyler has a birthday party to go to on Saturday night! Looks like another full weekend.

I will keep you posted.

Happy Wa hoo day!

Love ya,
