It was my birthday February 29 and I turned 25! Yep, I am a leap year baby, which means that my birthday got skipped this year! The years when I don't have a birthday, then I take advantage and celebrate my birthday on 2 days--February 28 and March 1. This year was no exception! I say its my birthday both days! But as usual my birthday ended up being a birthday week (mostly cuz I plan it that way!) Anyways, on other people's blogs I have noticed that when it's someone's birthday they write 10 things that they love about that person. Since the mister is not going to write 10 things he loves about me because he has no idea how to log on to this blog, I decided I'd write 10 things about how I love being me.

1. Sometimes I say things that don't make sense but in my head I know exactly what I'm talking about.
2. I am very protective over my treats. I believe in dividing them up equally....which means that I get them all!
3. Okay I am totally kidding! I'm really not gonna write 10 reasons why I love myself! But nobody else was going to do it so I figured I had to!!

So for my birthday I had a very busy week! I had a family party where my mom made homemade rolls which are my absolute FAVORITE!! My sisters birthday is 2 weeks before mine so we had a combined celebration!

I had girls night with some girls from high school. We went to cheesecake factory! It was so much fun and soooo good!

I had seeesters night with my two sisters! We ate lots of food and watched the stupidest movie ever! The narrator sounded like a complete idiot....or maybe sounded like a pervert? I'm not sure! It was one of those movies that won a bunch of awards at the Oscars though. I swear those movies are never good!

Then my wonderful hubby planned a surprise birthday party for me. We ate lots of good food and played Rockband and Singstar! Thanks for the wifey's for helping!

The next night we had Shawn's family over for dinner and played more Rockstar and I had more cheesecake!

I also went to lunch with a few of my friends and Shawn and ate so much sushi one night that our tummy's hurt. Oh and my cute friends Kimber and Maddi had flowers delivered to me on my birthday!! It totally made my day! There were even stargazer lily's which are my favorite flower!!

It was such a great birthday. Loved it even though I am practically 30 now! EEEEK!!

Can I get one? PLEASE????

I seriously want one. Its all I can think about now. Cute lil' piglet following me around. I asked the Mr. and he said no....

After my sisters and I watched this video we couldn't stop thinking about the cute piglet so we looked up piglets on the internet! We found these miniature pigs that they sell called royal dandies. Think how cute Harley would be hanging out with a miniature pig? BFF's for sure. It'd be a dream come true for me....

And I'm not joking....I really want one!

He seriously laughed at me???

So these past few days I've been deathly ill. And I wasn't getting better at all I just kept getting worse and worse. Yesterday I finally decided I better go to instacare. I went to instacare and the doctor said I had strep throat. He said that I could either get a shot of antibiotics or I could take antibiotics for 10 days. Right away Shawn says, "I think you should do the shot." Well I have this little problem where everytime I get a shot or a needle comes around me I pass out. But the past few times I've gotten my blood taken I've been okay so I thought maybe I grew out of it. And whenever I take antibiotics I have a little problem with my intestines the whole time I'm on it (hope you catch my drift). But the doctor said I wouldn't have this problem if I had the shot. So shot it was! I pulled my pants down and the nurse gave me my shot. Next thing you know I was getting dizzy and my stomach starting hurting and I remember hearing myself say, "I'm gonna pass out." But my voice was so far away and I couldn't see anything anymore. Next thing I know I'm laying down and my legs are propped up. It was all black but then I started looking around and I started seeing things again. I looked at the nurse and didn't know who the heck he was but then I look at the guy next to him and he's laughing....oh yes the guy laughing was Shawn. My wonderful husband who will love me through thick and thin, through sickness or through health is laughing at me as I come to telling me how pale I was. Wow, I have the nicest husband ever! And then as I'm laying there trying not to pass out again he asks me what I'm cooking for dinner. Obviously thats a joke as I never cook dinner anyway, but what a butt face huh? Apparently I haven't grown out of passing out whenever I get a shot--good to know. And I also have free reign to laugh at Shawn next time he gets sick or hurt! Also good to know!

Back when Shawn loved me and wouldn't laugh at me when I was sick.....sigh....those were the days!

By the way, my bum STILL hurts from where I got the shot. I'm never listening to my husband again!

Mexican Fiesta Christmas Party!!!

We had a Christmas party with some of our friends. We decided to have a Mexican Fiesta party! We had so much good food! Enchiladas, Taco's, Bean Dip, Salsa, and then Courtney even made fried ice cream for dessert!

The boys digging in!

Courtney making the amazing fried ice cream! Seriously as good as it is at restaurants!

The boys watching the Jazz game, Sean, Jason, Shawn, Tom and Brad

Jeff and Chris on the other side of the room

The wifey's! Megan, me, Danielle, Sasha and Courtney

It was so amazing. After we stuffed ourselves with food then we played a game called Cursed. Jason and Sasha brought the game and its one of the best games ever!! Basically all you do is make a fool of yourself..... When its your turn you pick a card and it will have a curse on it and then you give that curse to someone and they have that curse for the rest of the game. For example, I had the hiccups the whole time. So everytime I talked I had to hiccup. Danielle's arms started at the wrist so her wrists were connected to her chest (whish I had a picture of that). Megan had to sign everything she was doing, Courtney had to yell like a drill sargeant whenever she talked....oh it was soooo funny!! Sometimes we'd have 3 to 6 curses at a time! Anyways, its was fun and I can't wait to play that game again!

Annual Gingerbread House!

Every year since I can remember, my family has decorated a gingerbread house. My mom makes the house from scratch so it looks and tastes amazing. In the beginning when this tradition started, my mom used to have control of what went on the house and what it looked like. Now that we are all grown up and have our own kids (well some of us) the grandkids end up decorating most of it. One word to explain gingerbread night-- CHAOS!!! Little tiny hands grabbing m&m's and sticking them on the roof....frosting getting everywhere....slobber getting everywhere because they are eating candy at the same time as they are sticking it on the mom still trying to control it somewhat so that the slobbery candy doesn't end up on the house. My one nephew kept eating candy and then spitting it out because he decided he didn't like it....YUMMMY!!! Nothing like slobbery, half chewed cinnamon bears being put into my hand!

This is my mom helping the grandkids while I stand there with my mouth full of candy....I'm so useles....

Jeffy helping with the roof while the Mr. eats least he is useless too!

We discovered while we were young that the main focus of the house should be to get as much candy on there as possible because then when we break it in January, there will be twice as much candy on there to eat and it will taste so much better (yes, we actually eat a month old gingerbread house with candy on it.....look forward to it every year)! With that being said, it pretty much explains/describes the look of the house this year (and most previous years).

Harding Beebee's....

Thats right. You heard it right. We had a baby! Okay okay, not really a baby but I went to and put in pictures of Shawn and I and it showed us what our babies would look like! I honestly was hoping that they would turn out uglier (for comedic affect) but they didn't turn out too shabby. Okay, they are still a little weird looking, especially the little girls five-head, but I thought it would be worse!

Here is beebee girl with a five-head!

Here comes beebee boy--now don't be scared when you see the roundess of the might bring back memories of a basketball?

I figured if Shawn and I were having kids then Harley might as well right? So I hooked him up with some hot mama and SURPRISE it's HUMAN!!!!! And a construction worker???

at least their daughter is somewhat cute!

The Fam

Why oh why do I suck at blogging so much? I can't figure it out! So much has happened lately, Shawn's hunting trip (and gutting his first deer), Shawn's birthday, Halloween, mario kart....but as usual I haven't blogged about it! Maybe one of these days I will, but since I'm not going to right now then I will post our new family pictures we recently had taken! Shawn's brother is in the army and came for a visit so while he was here we had family pictures. We had some taken with Shawn's whole family (which I will post later because I don't have them yet) and then we also had pictures of our little family taken.
