Has it been 10 days my goodness.. Well like always I have to take it way back to friday the 12th.... Friday I cleaned the house and packed up for Orange County to go to Jeremiah's first birthday party.. We drove down and I helped Sa with the party stuff and hung out with Teri, Glory, Christine, and Shawne. We had So much fun making fun of each-other and putting Jeremiah's party together. i think the preparation for the party at least in in our family is sometimes more fun than the party it self. Saturday We woke and Headed to Atlantis play-center for Jeremiah's first birthday and boy was it a party there was TONS of people and food, games, cotton candy, grab bags, balloons, cake and presents It was so much fun . Saturday night we went back to Sa's and opened Jeremiah's presents there were far too many to open at the park . He got so much stuff. I bin full of clothes, toys, toys, toys and and Cadallac escalade, LOL He is going to be pimpin'.... Sunday We woke up and drove home and when we got home Harvey and Mary were here for Christmas . My mom already had 3 or 4 loads of laundry done and dinner ready when we got here LOVE THAT .... Monday morning we got joshua off to school and I started Christmas shopping and Coco and I went to Costco and we also baked for the cookie exchange . Tuesday was book club and April brought Anthony and Addy over to play then we we were off to the cookie exchange , Very good cookies and lots of fun ...We also had a dryer accident on tuesday we washed a pen with some of Isaiah's clothes and diapers that I had borrowed from Pam . UGH .. Nicole came over we all worked to get he stains outof the diapers. Wednesday My sister, mom and I went to State Farm for lunch and to shop in the company store then we went to the good stuff It is on Calloway and Brimhall and it is a thrift store that I love it is called the good stuff and yes hence the name their stuff is GOOD... Thursday was my birthday and I turned 31 ugh ... I had a great day we took the kids to valley plaza to get their pictures taken with Santa.. Then we came home and Raima and I went out just the 2 of us and then we went to TJ Max to do some Christmas shopping. I had a great birthday My mom bought me a watch and I received lots of phone calls from friends and family Joshua bought me a beanie and shoes and my sisters and I are celebrating on January 3rd. Friday Raima volunteered in Joshua' classroom and made ginger bread houses... We did some shopping Raima raked the yard and Griselda came. Saturday was the Crandall Christmas. We had a prime rib dinner and exchanged gifts with Nicole and Linda. Everyone was here all day we made cookies and ginger bread houses and had a wonderful dinner and hung out ALL day with each-other.. Well I am finally caught up to today and we woke this morning and went to church .

Twas the Night

Twas the night before Christmas, I'm glued to the tree.
I'm wondering what Santa brought just for me.
Could it be Cardstock, or Chipboard or Lace?
Or a Cricut Cartridge, I said, with a smile on my face.
And that's when I heard him, "Hi Santa," I Said
"You know Sarah good girls should be in their beds."
"I know I should Santa and now I've been Caught."
But I was so excited to see what you brought!!
"Well let's take a look in this Scrap room where you work."
He shook his head QUICKLY, and left with a jerk.
I heard him exclaim as he put up his gear.
"You've got enough crap, I'll see you next year."

Thanks Bonnie from Scap-n-away!

Oh how I wish was my door was bigger!!! Or the wreath was smaller!!!

Tuesday morning and we have a lot to get done around the Lefotu Lounge.... Raima has to get our couches and move the old ones out and our 'NEW' ones in . Our $75.00 Maroon Masterpieces are in the garage we are giving them to the first person that drives by needing ugly couches, LOL... I cleaned out Johua's room and closet to get ready for Winter and Christmas I know little late I put away summer clothes and in winter went through the tubs in the garage Blah Blah Blah.. three bags of trash and two piles for the good will we were finished. Wednesday morning Raima worked in Joshua's class and I stayed home. Then off the Costco we went . I bought a beautiful wreath the was $40.00 for my front door. I have been wanting a wreath for a couple of years now and I bought one today and today it will not fit on my door that is right I would need 2 of my doors for this sucker what was I thinking obviously I wasn't I thought it would fit but it DOES NOT .. So I hope I can take it back or some one is getting a wreath for Christmas. Tonight was our MOPS leadership dinner at Sue's house. We had a beautiful dinner and the played NASTY Santa.. It was a lot of fun I brought a soup-mix,homemade to and from tags, personalized ornament, chocolate covered pretzels and some bath salts for my gift and I stole a GREAT one. Eve brought rosemary walnuts, cranberry cheese-balls and coffee cake. So that is what I came home with I was very delighted I ate the walnuts on the way I love them so much Thank you Eve..!!..Well I better get to bed tomorrow is a minimum day so I can't take a morning nap with Isaiah LOL.

13 pounds of Brown

Thursday we came home from OC. Raima went back to work and I was super tired from the trip to OC. Friday I completely forgot to set the alarm for preschool and Pam knocked on our door at 7:45 to pick Joshua up and we were all still ASLEEP!!!!!Thankfully Mark her son forgot his back pack they had to go back home and get it and we got ready super quick and she came back to get Joshua and they made it to school on time UGH..Saturday I didn't feel very good, I was supposed to go to class kick off at Simply Scrapbooks but never made it. Linda picked up Josh and took him to go watch Brett's band play.I tried to take a nap..... Sunday morning we woke up and went to church,seems like it takes forever to get out the door by myself.1 four yr. old with a jacket and untied shoe,1 infant carrier with baby,1 diaper bag,1 breathing machine,1 bible bag, 1 set of keys, and myself all dressed and ready. We get to church ,sit down and BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP. Yes the breathing machine sounds off. The cable came unplugged and then 30 minutes into service BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP. It sounds again.I swear it never goes off until we are somewhere quiet and crowded....I couldn't figure out why it kept sounding off. So I turned it off for the rest of service. Service was GREAT. We were given a mission for the week to invite someone new to church . I invited Nikki and she is coming on Sunday if we get home on time from OC. Yeah Mission accomplished. Today I picked up the kids from preschool and went to Pam's to see her new dining room table that is beautiful BTW. I showed her Isaiah's belly button hernia because it has got bigger and kinda scary looking.So Pam told me to call the Dr and they wanted me to bring him in . So we went to the Dr. at 4:30p His belly button is fine he still has a hernia and it will go away. They went ahead and did his well check for 2 months because he will be 2 months on Thursday. 13 lb. 13 oz and 24 inches long. Him is my healthy boy.......Him is gonna be big like his daddy .. LOL.... Oh I found out why the machine kept going off on Sunday the strap cable was loose and I ordered a new one today and the machine is ALL better.!.!.

We made an-awesome breakfast casserole and then Linda and kids headed back to a Bakersfield and Jaime and Jarod headed home to Oregon. We hung around a little while and then me pappy and the boys headed home as well. Sunday we went to church . Oh but before that . I forgot Isaiah's breathing monitor charger at my moms in Trona . I was up all night Saturday watching Isaiah breathe..... literally . I could not sleep . Raima got home at 1:30 am Sunday morning and relieved me for awhile but around 4:30 am he came in and woke me up because he was super tired. I got up and finished up the morning watching him sleep / My sister Nicole came home Sunday from my moms and brought us the charger. WOW what a long night . anyhow Sunday we went to church and then over to Nikki and Moe's to hang out . Moe took us out to dinner and we just hung with Auntie Nikki we didn't get to see her for Thanksgiving so we were missing each-other... Monday back to the NORM . Preschool and laundry from the trip . LIFE.. We did go to the see the lights at CALM Monday night with the Evens family. kinda becoming a tradition we have been the last 3 years with them . It is always fun the kids and adults rode the train and carrousel and we had hot chocolate and kettle corn and of course and apple dumpling. Tuesday morning our annual Christmas potluck at the Sabaloni's I made deviled eggs and we shared christmas decorating ideas and stories. Very fun. Tonight the SSSC club met at Star-bucks to plan our menu for the next 3 months. That is the Snobby Sister Supper club. We have been preparing dinners for each-other for about a year and 2 months now and we LOVE it. Wednesday we headed to Orange County to see Raima's Mom and Dad before they leave for Samoa. It was a nice trip we woke on wednesday morning and I made supper . Wednesday is my cooking day!! and then we were off to the big city. We arrived in Orange county about 1:30p. Exciting it was the first time Isaiah met his grandma,PaPa, Aunties, Uncles, and cousins on my husbands side. They were all very excited to see him and he slept through it all. LOL.. He is so cute he was passed around from arm to arm and never even knew what was going on. Joshua on the other hand was SUPER excited showed off his songs and hung out with his favorite uncle JR and played with his cousins. Auntie Shawn took him to target and bought him a dinosaur. He had a lot of fun. My house is al decorated for Christmas . We got out all of decorations on Tuesday after a inspiring meeting at MOPS . I came home and decked the halls. Fa la la la la lala la la!!
