Christmas Time...

I was laid off the end of August and with all my extra time I thought I would find more time to blog. Apparently I'm not good. I wont give up. Not sure anyone even reads my blog but for those who do I'll try to keep 'em coming!

We were not able to get a tree tag this year. It has been a family tradition to cut our own tree. Hot dog roast, hot chocolate, sleigh riding and hiking all over the mountain for the perfect tree. Well this year we supported the local tree lot and purchased our perfect tree. For much more than the $10 tree tag and it wasn't as fun but I like the tree. It's really pretty. 

I love decorating for Christmas. This year we purchased new stockings. Mine is the best. Sometimes being the only girl has its benefits LOL! I also made some Popsicle stick snowflakes thanks to Pinterest and my mother-in-law purchased the blocks for all of us sister-in-laws to make. They are super cute!

Update I found a new job. I will be doing billing @ a CPA office in Spanish Fork. I don't start until Jan 2nd but it's coming fast and now I'm finding myself rushing to get everything I slacked on getting done the last few months finished, as well as finding time to Christmas shop, (which by the way we haven't even started...not one thing) LOL

Merry Christmas Everyone!!

Back blogging...

So I decided it was time to start updating the blog again. So a little update:

Arlund-started a new job in June working as a machinist with his Dad. He really enjoys working there and it was a good change for our family. No more driving 3 hours a day and he his home at a decent time. It's great to have him around more.
Jo Lene-I was laid off from my job in August and I am currently looking for work. I have enjoyed being home with the boys and having a hard time wanting to go back to work lol...
Kayden-is 13 years old and in the 7th grade. He is currently playing football and really enjoys it. He is great at it too and it is so much fun and nerve racking to watch him. He will start wrestling at the end of this month.
Derek-is 10 years old and in the 4th grade. He loves school and would rather go everyday than have a day off. He is currently playing flag football and really likes it. He also likes to play basketball and will start in January.
Brandon-is 4 years old and goes to pre-school. He loves school! He has enjoyed staying home with mom as well! He loves to draw and play outside. He is at such a fun age!

Hopefully this time we can stay on top of things and keep you updated...until next post!

Happy Valentine's Day

So I was not very good at being back to blogging, but I am going to try haha! Hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day. I had this awesome idea for Valentine's this year, well at least I thought it was awesome haha! The boys were really great to help me cut out the paper, punch hearts and squares and even glue them together. By 9 pm Sunday night we had everything but the robots done so I said no worries go to bed and I will finish them. Well 2 am they were all finished. Goal for next year, maybe start a little sooner, not put them off until Sunday afternoon. I was pretty impressed with them overall! Even if they took all night and the kids probably just ripped off the chocolate bar and didn't care I felt like it was a great accomplishment. Derek's class did not make boxes, they just do bags at class but Kayden was able to take a Valentine box. We made a rocket ship, also very impressed how it turned out haha!

I will be back I promise....

Hi everyone so it has been awhile sorry! Life has been crazy! I am going to try and be better at updating my blog for those out there who do care :-) Instead of trying to post everything from December to now I will just give everyone a quick update and will only be posting more current things.

I updated the boys to the right but as for Arlund and I:

Arlund-just started a new job last month with Jacobs. He absolutely loves it! The ride is probably the worse part because it's over an hour away, but he gets to van pool so he does not have to drive everyday! He is currently searching for a commuter car because he totaled his truck a few weeks ago. Luckily he was not hurt!!

Jo Lene (me)-I started a new job Jan 27th at a billing office in Orem. We do billing for out of state perinatologists (they are like one step above OB doctors, specialists.) I love my new job, soooo much better then where I spent the last 7 years of my life haha! I have really got into cake making lately. My niece and I enjoy making cakes and someday our dream is to open our own shop! :-) It can happen right?

Well hope everyone is doing well! Keep in touch and I will try to be better as well!
