2012 I am still here!

I used to be a good document what was going on in my life. And now I wish I had documented more last year because I've forgotten a lot of things! LOL I guess that happens.. So my goal for this blog is to blog atleast once per week.

In a nutshell here is what 2011 entailed.

Breaking up, getting back together, getting a job, losing a job, Kyle starting wyotech, Kyle graduating from Wyotech, Wesley turned 2 (oh boy!), I turned 26 (yikes closer to 30), Easter was spent in Illinois, Christmas was spent in Illinois, no other traveling happened that year, House was finally paid off, Kyle sold Ranger, Kyle received Dodge Ram, 2 kittens joined our family, Turbo & Diesel, The End.

That pretty much sums the year up. The beginning of the year was the hardest for me ( I don't want to hash out details), but its over and done and now its 2012, and I hope for lots of positive changes.

For 2012 so far this is what has happened. Kyle turned 25, Wesley turned 3, Wesley is 100% potty trained,  I start weightloss journey & lose 20lbs so far, turbo & diesel leave family, road trip to california, we buy a camper, Kyle moves to Rawlins for new job, Kyle gets a dog, womens softball starts.

Now it is May 2012, and Kyle has finally landed a secure job in Rawlins (boo), but atleast he is working in his field! He has been there 2 weeks now, and really enjoys it. We didn't relocate there, but instead got him a camper to live in. Might have to figure something else out for the winter, but will deal with that later in the year.

I re-started my weight loss journey. I do want more children eventually, but I need to be in better shape for that to happen. You can follow along my journey over HERE. Progress has slowed for the last couple months, but with nice weather, I will be outside more, swimming, hiking, bike riding, camping, softball, tennis (hopefully soon).

Here is a slideshow of photos from the 2011. Photos from CA trip in another post.

Wesley Age 3

I haven't been very good at updating Wesley's stats and things he likes/dislikes, but here we go starting over!

Wesley is now 3!! Where did time go? I say this all the time but its true!!


  • Toy story, woody, buzz, jesse, his toy story phone, his buzz action figure, and especially the toy story video game!
  • Trains, especially putting the tracks together, naming the characters, (thomas, james, gordon). Hes very creative and good at this
  • Cars, trucks, semis, airplanes, you name it. He has a ton of them, and still loves them. He puts them in storage alot (haha), has the trains pull his cars and whatever else he can come up with.
  • Cartoons he enjoys: Blues clues, fineas and ferb, Scout, and whatever else is on. He rotates and doesn't always watch the same thing.
  • He still likes sesame street, but not as much anymore. He got a new cookie monster toy for his birthday and now LOVES it. 
  • Slides and the trampoline. We are still working on being brave for the rec center slide in the swimming pool but at Washington park he masters all of them, even the big kid ones! 
  • Guns...I wish he didn't like guns. But he does watch dad play video games, and always seems to be finding things to use as a gun. He uses a saw, a stick, whatever else he can find...
  • Throwing the ball..and not just throwing it, pitching it like hes playing baseball! So glad he likes this. We are also working on catching, and the bigger bouncy balls hes getting better at catching and can actually do this!
  • Vocally he is right on track. Always putting things into sentences, repeating words, pronouncing better, its amazing! He is definitely ready for preschool as he knows his colors, how to count, his ABC's, shapes, some opposites, figuring out puzzles, animals and their sounds, and even what sound letters make, and things like that!
