So i haven't posted anything about us in awhile so here is the latest news. We're selling our house! Hopefully we will be closing next week, so we've been busy packing and getting to things moved over to my parents house were we will be staying until we move. Oh and I don't think I have mentioned that we will be moving to Roseburg so Damon can finish schooling. It is going to be a new adventure for us that will hopefully work out great. Also Livi got her new cape from

My friend Bethany tagged me, so here goes.
Here are a bunch of fun questions relating to my husband:
1. What is his name? Damon
2. Who eats more? Damon, by far I always say that he is eating us out of house and home.
3. Who said, "I love you" first? I did, here's the story behind it though. I was 16 and Damon was 18 we had been dating about 6 months. I knew that Damon liked me alot and maybe even loved me. Well I kept on telling him I liked him alot and finaly I just blurted out I love you and he goes good because I love you to. It worked out great, but we still joke that I was the first one to say it, always speaking my mind.
4. Who is taller? Damon
5. Who is smarter? I think that depends, we both know a good amount of information to keep us entertained.
6. Who is more sensitive? Oh thats me by a long shot.
7. Who does the laundry? Always me, I don't want Damon ruining my clothes!
8. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed?Damon and always Damon, he says he couldn't sleep if it was on the other side. It doesn't bother me at all.
9. Who pays the bills? Me, although I don't know if that is the smartest choice.
10. Who cooks more? Me, but Damon always does the b-b-queing.
11. Who is more stubborn? Definitely me
12. Who is the first to admit they are wrong? Damon, even if he isn't, he is so great to me.
13. Who has more siblings? Damon he has, let me think, 6. Me 2
14. Who wears the pants in the relationship? I think it depends on what the situation is, we consult eachother.
15. What do you like to do together? We love to go to the movies, go out to eat, just drive around and look at houses for sale. Play with Olivia. Talk about our hopes and dreams for our future. 16. Who eats more sweets? We both like sweets, its horrible.
17. Guilty Pleasures? Climbling gear, he would buy everything that there is, if I let him. For me it is shoes.
18. How did you meet? Damon's family moved to Lakeview his senior year, two months before I turned 16. I invited him and his brothers to hang out with my friends and then when I turned 16 we pretty much had started dating.
19. Who asked whom out first? Damon never asked me out, we just kind of became a couple and started hanging out alot together.
20. Who kissed whom first? Damon was my first kiss and he kissed me first, I was so nervous, and had no idea what I was doing.
21. Who proposed? Okay so Damon's propossal was not that great, when he came home from his mission, we already knew that we were going to get married. I kept on telling him though that he had to propose, so one night we are haning out and he just asks me. Not that exciting.
22. His best features and qualities? I have always loved his shoulders and the way that he can make me laugh when I am so mad at him. He has a great personality and a love for the Gosple that runs very deep. I love how he is always making sure that Olivia and I are well taken care of, always making sure that we have what we need and alot of the time what I want. He is such a great guy and I'm so blessed to have him as my husband.

I tag my friends: Julie, Rachel, Nicole and my sister in-law Karen.

We won!

This last weekend was the Lakeview Swim meet and we won, by quite alot to. I'm so excited and proud of my kids for all there hard work. Apparantly according to my mom this win is the first in many, many years. Even though we won, we still got way to many DQ's so the kids are getting some pretty tough practices in the days to follow.

watch out here comes our super hero...

I was looking around in the blog world today and found this lady who just started a website where she is selling these capes that she makes for kids. I thought that they looks so cute that I just had to order one for Livi. Hopefully Livi likes it as much as I do. I ordered hers to be violet and candy stripes with a magenta star emblem on the back and a light pink O for Olivia. Go and check out her website.

In other news we are doing pretty good, I have survived my first swimmeat for the season. It was two weekends ago in Prineville and it was so hot that weekend I think they said it got up to over 100 degrees. The kids did okay for the first meet, we placed fourth out of seven so not to bad. For alot of the kids it was their first meet so I think maybe nerves played alot into that. This weekend is our home meet so hopefully we will have the advantage. I have resorted to bribing the kids that if they don't stop or get dq's(disqualifications) that I will bring some kind of yummy treat next week, so we'll se how well that works.
I have new photos of Livi to put up from the playing in the sprinklers on the fourth and from going to the kiddie pool the other day, but my photo cord is upstairs and I am downstairs and upstairs is about 90 degress up there or so it feels. So I will try and get those photos up soon.
