How Sad

Okay so I have been getting enough grief now that I haven't updated in a while. I'm finally here to do so and it's been so long that I forgot everything, username, password, which e-mail address I used. Because if you are anything like me you use a fake e-mail address for stuff like this and buying online, and a real one for your friends. If you have the fake one and not the real one you're really not a friend. Just kidding I was trying to be funny is it too late at night to be funny, that sounded rude. LOL.

So our new stuff. Tylea turned two August 17. I can't believe I have a toddler. I am so sad. I want to hold a baby in my arms again so bad I am willing to put up with crazy meds, and the chance of having a C-Section again. So scared about that. I want VBAC so bad. I don't even mind the thought of being sick for 9-months with a busy toddler. I know I'll be thinking what was I thinking, but it is that overwhelming crazy maternal thing I guess. So back to Tylea. She is so amazingly smart. I am astounded at the growth and intelligence she has. I feel bad that I am not always the best mom as most of us do, and then I have little moments where I realize I say "let's pray" and she folds her arms because she already knows what to do. Then I fell great. We had a fun B-day party for her. She is totally into the Barnyard movie, so we did a Barnyard Bash. Hay stacks, swimming, burger, hotdogs, chips, cake-I made a cow cake, I cursed it while making it but when I got lots of compliments I thought now that wasn't so bad I'd do it again, kinda like pregnancy. :) We also had a piƱata and ice cream cake. Whoohoo. Tylea got a table and tea set for her birthday she absolutely loved it, can you tell? The picture says it all. :)

In July we went to visit Tony's family in Minnesota. We spent every day on the lake, boating and thuroughly enjoyed ourselves, we didn't want to come back home to reality, and usually by four days I'm ready to come home. There's no place like home, 'click' 'click'. Tylea really enjoyed riding the tube behind the boat. We video taped her and Tony out for one last time. I knew they were out for a while but I didn't know it was for an hour. Wow. She had so much fun there. More memories to come I'm sure. Has anyone noticed that they are giving their kids a lot better up bringing then they had? Or is it just me. We are so blessed. Every day I thank Heavenly Father for what we have for fear tomorrow we won't have it.
So more random stuff. I was called to be Beehive Adviser and I absolutely love it. In fact I keep getting me and the girls in trouble for talking, so disrespectful I know and I really don't mean to be, but I love the girls so much I can't help it. We have so much fun, or at least that's my take on it. So another big change, I'm still not over, they took my most favorite person Cicily away from me and now she won't return my e-mails. Just kidding. I'm all about drama. But we miss them terribly. The cutest thing happened on Sunday, Tylea grabbed Julia Lyman's hand after sacrament and said come on. I was trying to get her all excited about going to nursery, I told her Julia's going to go play toys too. So that's when she grabbed her by the hand, and I mean grabbed because I think she was sqeezing more than Julia was holding back, and they walked like best friends all the way to Nursery class together. I wish I had a camera at church. I was so proud of her for being out there and friendly instead of toddlery and mean. I'm not gonna lie sometimes they are mean. But it was so cute. Okay now I'm out of things to say. Until next time hopefully not five months from now. :) Love, Tracea

More on Our Sealing 03-01-08

So Tony and I are all ready to go. They place us in the "waiting area" while they go to get the man that sealed us. I can't remember his name isn't that awful. The Sealer comes and gets us ready and along comes the Sister that was helping me through the whole process. She says, "I'm sorry we are taking so long, apparently one of the witnesses was late coming because his wife forgot her temple recommend." It took me a few seconds to process they were talking about Cherali, my sister. Rob, my brother-in-law, was one of the witnesses. Okay so Sister I said, do you mean my sister? She said oh yes, but your brother-in-law is here now so we can begin. But wait Sister what about my sister? Well she is not here yet, but don't worry if she dosn't make it in time to hold Tylea during the ceremony we will just get one of the attending sisters. And then it hit me with full force. They are not going to wait for my sister. Oh my gosh my sister is not going to be there. I could no longer hold in the emotions, I was so overcome I actually snorted. It was like a way dramatic sobbing scene in the movies. I was so embarrassed, but I had been holding it back and couldn't hold it any more, the flood gates were opened. The sister and the Sealer immediately scrambled for tissue and calming words, Tony hugged me and I said I won't go through it without my sister. :) The Sister hurried away and I cried some more on Tony's shoulder and then reality hit. I have to go in a room full of people, I'm the spot light how's my makeup? Finally the Sister came back after several excruciating minutes and told us that my sister had made it. My cousin Tena saved the day. She drove like a bat out of haites to get there with my sister's temple bag. Whoooppeee. Crisis averted. It was a beautiful day and ceremony we were so overcome with the love and support of family, friends, and the ward. Thank you to everyone. Oh, and we forgot a camera, so did everyone else so we have no pictures at the temple. By the way Cherali made Tylea's dress. :)

Getto Farm Girl

Tylea got a ride on electric tractor for Christmas and Tony got a Bling chain necklace with a big money sign on it. Tylea fell in love with both. She is so dang cute. We're working on taking that paci away. Little stinker.

Are you kidding

So about three months ago we get a call from the 2nd Counselor in the bishopric. He wants to speak to Tony and I. He released us from our primary calling, that we just got the hang of, and called us to separate callings. Tony was called to the YM presidency as the secretary, working with the Teachers. I was called to be Cub Scout Leader and then a month later I was also called to be Relief Society Teacher. So we get a call on Thrus. night from the Stake Presidency asking if Tony and I can come on Fri. night for a meeting. Ahh Ohh. Guess what. Tony was called to be the 2nd Counselor in the Bishopric. Just kidding! In the Elders Quorum. I think that we have been so overwhelmed with new stuff and busy stuff we don't know what to do with ourselves anymore. But there must be a reason. We are excited for the possibilities.
