Please send me your email addy in my comments so I can give you access. I've got the comment moderation enable so no one else will get your email addy and I'll go ahead and delete them after I'm done. Loves to all....

OMG.... finally a new post!!!

Sorry for the lack of posts. I've been doing more stuff on facebook these days then updating my blog (sorry)! So if you're on there, send me a friend request I'm on there as Aimee Olson and I'll add you (if I know you)... LOL

All is well at our house. We made it through the holiday's but started off the New Year a little rocky. We thought that the little Jetta that could had finally went to its final resting place. However, she was able to be resurrected. I'm pretty happy as I love driving her to work! So then, our GMC got wrecked suckin' crap! It doesn't have a lot of cosmetic damage but the young man that hit Kyle, hit the truck in a really bad spot so it goes into the shop this week so we'll wait and see what they have to say. I'll keep you all posted! Our work is just plugging along for both of us. I applied for a new job with the state but we're on a hiring freeze right now so we'll wait and see what happens. I'll be happy if a I get it but I'm also content where I'm at right now. It's a win win situation for me either way.

Ok... don't have a lot of time this morning so I'll share a few new pics. Hope all is well with everyone. Loves....

Ava Funny

So, Ava just told her dad that if he didn't start to be nice, that Santa was going to put him on the naughty list.... LMAO!!!!

So for Halloween, Ava dressed up as Pumpkin Minnie Mouse. She loved her costume and looked so cute. She got way too much candy that I'm afraid over half will get thrown out. Hope everyone had a great time trick or treating.... Loves!!!!

I think....

my winter slump is back and tech, it's not even winter yet. I've just lost my blogging mojo lately.

Well, we had an exciting weekend in Vegas. We went down with my sister and her husband and my sister and I went to the U2 concert, it was FABULOUS. They just keep getting better and better in concert. We'd like to attend another next year, but we'll wait and see. So Vegas is no longer the home of the $4.99 breakfast, lunch and dinner. A beer in Planet Hollywood was $11.50, yes $11.50. You can buy a entire 12 pack for what that baby cost. Oh and I don't consider myself a cheapskate either. I'm good to spend money on things but this was just a bit too much if you ask me. However, we had a fabulous meal on our way home in Mesquite at the Chuck Wagon in the Virgin River, $3.99 ham steak and eggs. It was the greatest meal of the entire trip. I've got some pictures to post but my USB cable has decided it needed a vacation and I can't find it. It'll show up and when it does, I'll post.

We're getting ready for Halloween this week. I was going to dress Ava up as a kitty but that's now changed to Minnie Mouse since my friend Shanan has a costume that we can borrow. We'll also have our adult party later that night and that will be a blast. I'll have to let you all know how it goes... Loves to all!!!!

Sweet Ava...

Hello everyone... I know its been awhile, but we've been busy with the end of the summer nearing. Well, this week has been an eventful one. Ava gave herself her very first "Ava" haircut. Needless to say, it's 6 inches shorter today then it was on Sunday. I've finally quit freaking and getting used to the shorter hair and "bangs". The last time that Ava's hair was this short, she was 2 years old and technically, it really isn't that short and the "Ava" cut could have been so much worse then it really was. Thank you Shanan for saving the day!

No big updates at this time. Kyle is liking his job with the city and mine is plugging right along as well. We're get excited for our Vegas trip in October. All I can say about that is look out U2 here we come. My sister and I are so excited to go and see them. We were supposed to go when they were in SLC in December 2005 but I had just had Ava like 2 days before the concert and Misty's daughter had influenza type A so we didn't get to go. I was home bound and she was home bound. So we are so looking forward to this one. Hope all is well with everyone. I hope to post again soon. Loves....

Remembering September 11th....

We all knew where we were and what we were doing on this day and will never forget.

I flew for work on September 11th... in 2002, 2003 & 2004 and you know what, the eery feeling of flying on that day never went away!

and the livings easy NOT! It's so freaking busy! We have a bunch of stuff coming up over the next several weekends and I honestly don't think we have a free weekend till after Labor Day. However, we do have some fun plans so it's all good.

Kyle started his city job on July 27th and I think he likes it. I know he liked the other a little more but this is a lot more stable and NO travel so that will be so nice. My job is plugging right along. I get to take a few days off this month and I'm so excited about that. My anniversary is also fast approaching. I can't believe that we've been married for a year already. This past year has really gone by fast. We're doing something next weekend so I'll post pictures when we get home. Ava starts dance and gymnastics classes on the 17th and is so excited she wants to wear her dance clothes and swimsuit everyday. I think I might have to hide them.

So other then just being super busy, we are all doing well. I'll try to get some pics posted this week before we leave next weekend. Hope all is well. Loves....

Quick update....

since its been almost a month since my last post. WOW time goes by really fast these days. We've been REALLY busy over the last several weeks and don't have an open weekend to just "relax" until sometime next month. However, we love to play in the summer! I have TONS of pictures to post but don't have the time right now. I'll get them up soon though I PROMISE!

So... I have some good news. Kyle has excepted a full time permanent job back with the city where we live. When he left a couple of months ago I was a little torn although we needed the money and the other job well it paid more. However, you never know when a seasonal job could become permanent. Well an employee past away and they offered his position to Kyle. He starts on the 27th. We couldn't be more thrilled... no more travel, no more worry about construction jobs. Kyle loved his other job but needed to do what was best for our family and this is such a great thing for us. We finally finally caught a break. You can't get a better job in a rural area! Anyhow, that's my good news. I really hope that all is well with everyone. Will post again soon. Loves...

Weekend Update...

Well... we didn't do much this weekend other then watch it rain. Does the sun shine in Utah anymore??? I'm starting to have my doubts. Ava said this weekend "mom, I don't think there's a sun anymore" LOL. I'm hoping that it's nice next weekend so we can go outside and play! My sister had a great big tree in her front yard that they had to get removed. We made the best of the "twigs" and the kids made some smores and roasted hot dogs so that was fun. Oh... and I got my haircut so that's always fun!

Kyle started his new job back on the 1st and LOVES it. This is such a good thing because he's getting easy to live with again. My job is also just plugging right along other then I've lost my mojo and really have no motivation whatsoever to be there. I think once we're able to do somethings outside, that will change. It seems like the only time we really get any decent weather is during the work week.

So, we're trying to get our house refinanced and I'm find that harder then I thought it would be. I think they want everything including my first and only born in the paperwork. I'm hoping to have this done by the end of the month... and then guess what? I get to buy a new car YIPPY!!!! I'll keep you all posted.

Anyhow, not much new at the abode other then I'm excited to do laundry. Hope all is well with everyone. Loves...

As promised....

here are a few new pics.

My poor puppy....

Here are a couple pictures of Jazz and her latest "accessory". She has stitches in her rear ride leg and a "fun" headpiece that she can't wait to get rid of. She had surgery last Wed and is starting the heal nicely. She's very happy to be home!
