Update

I can't believe it has already been over 2 weeks since I last posted, these days are just flying bye! I really can't believe Thanksgiving is past and Christmas is less than a month away CRAZY! I think the weather has thrown me off somewhat because here in Utah November basically felt like October, it really was gorgeous fall weather for the most part. I feel like we had one less month of winter and that sure does make me happy. I knew it wouldn't be long before the frigid weather would start and yesterday was that day. It is now freezing! In the past 2 weeks we have had a few new things take place:
For me I started running with this running group here in So Jo. It has been so great running with a group again. Theres over 20 in the group not everyone comes all the time but there always seems to be at least 10 of us. It is a hardcore group, snow, rain, freezing wind doesn't stop them from meeting at 6 a.m. Tues and Thurs. It has been so good for me because they do a lot of speed work mixed in with long pace runs. A lot of them do the "grand slam" every year ( for those like me who don't know what that is it's completing 4 marathons between April and Oct) so they don't mess around. I love it so much because it has got me up and running out in this cold weather, I can run in the dark and not be scared, and they are always running in different locations so I don't get bored with the same old route. To sum it up I'm loving this running group! Also, I'm excited that I'm adding a Saturday aerobics class, boot camp style, it should be fun. They finally, after 3 months, took the band off of kids with swim diapers going swimming, so we've been doing that on a regular basis. It is so fun now that Emmy actually enjoys swimming, she could just sit there and splash all day long. I've also loved decorating for Christmas this year and getting new ideas for decorations and gifts. And another new and exciting thing is I'm prego! Yeah! I just found out but I can't keep it in, so ya'll are the first to know.

As for Aaron he completed all of the interviews, drug tests, background, and everything on his part for the application process for the Border Patrol. Now we are just waiting to hear back. yikes! He thinks it could be as early as January that he would leave for training. We still can't decide were we want to go: Texas (El Paso) or Arizona (Uma or Tuscon??) Any suggestions?

The Maile situation is getting better, I have tried a few different techniques and at least now she stays in her room and plays until she falls asleep in her big girl bed, however that creates a new problem of her pulling out every possible thing in her drawers and boxes, its a complete disaster every time I go to get her! As for the potty thing I gave up on it again and probably won't pull it out for a while. And for all those who remember me as pee my pants girl those days are past, it has honestly been a long time, probably months or even years that I've had an incident so back off.
Emmy has finally figured out the walker so she loves cruisin around. The crawling is still a work in progress, but I think it won't be much longer, she isn't content just sitting playing with toys anymore.
And now if you've managed to make it to the end of this long blog, jokes about the prego thing! I just wanted to get a rise out of ya'll and I feel like this is kind of a boring post so just wanted to spice it up a bit. he he he! I wish I were but no luck yet! But we just found out that both my sister Jenni and sister in law Jenni are and I'm so excited for them. We'll keep on "trying". jokes I hate that phrase

Here's just some of the pictures we've taken in the last little bit. Two sick girls that just wanted to snuggle (never happens) and sleep.

Me and all the sisters and one sister in law (we missed you Jamie) celebrating Justins 18th birthday

Enjoying the beautiful weather in November - parks and flying kites

Kamaile and her latest obsession - Prince Phillip. Ever since Aaron was Prince Phillip for Halloween she insists that she is a boy and wants to be Prince Phillip. She gets pretty worked up when I keep telling her she is a little girl, if she isn't a boy then she's either fa fa or a dragon. I don't know what her problem is with being a cute little girl but she hates the sound of that. Some of her latest sayings that I can't help but laugh at are "that's enough Mommy" if I start singing with her or doing something she doesn't like. Yesterday she got stuck between Emmys walker and the door for a minute and she said "oh crap". It may not seem that funny but I thought it was hilarious and made me realize that she picks up on everything I say.

Ha, Ha...you totally had me going. I was about to pick up the phone and call, but something inside me told me to keep reading. You'll have to keep "trying" so we get on the same schedule (or whatever you say). I didn't know you joined a running group - sounds fun! Probably too hard core for me, but perfect for you. I still think you should move into our basement and teach me swimming lessons.

Jenny said...

P.S. I can't believe we all fit on that couch...

Matt and Allison said...

Furious. I promise I was PUMPED about your news! I honestly believed it because Chanel told me that Justin's sister was Pregnant but she forgot which one. I was praying it was you. That was a good one though.
I love how excited you are about the running group. As I was reading your description, I realized I would give that exact description when trying to explain my worst nightmare. I love how hardcore you are.
And about the peeing thing, yeah right its been years!! If you are the same person I lived with, there is no chance its been that long.

Jessie...I am mad you are not prego now. shoots. I swear you were pregs with Emme forever!

The Ceder House's said...

Not cool. I was way excited too.... you better keep us posted for the "real thing" in the mean time.. have fun trying!! Ha ha.

Cody and Brooke said...

You're such a nerd Jessie, you and your "jokes"! Well, keep on "trying" you two! Kidding, I really hate that phrase as well. Anyway, the running group sounds great for you, you are so hard core! Is it snowing yet up there?

Jonathan & Britney McCauley said...

I love the cuddling thing when theyre sick. Luke was just sick to and all he did was cuddle. But i sure did feel bad for the little guy. Yeah we are going to maui for christmas...i am so excited to take luke to the beach! How fun will that be! Okay, you seriously get the cutest pictures of your girls! I love the prince phillip! And good story about what emmy said. That must of been so funny and so hard not to laugh!

Jonathan & Britney McCauley said...

okay you got me! Because luke distracted me and so i was skimming through the blog and when i saw the im prego line i about died! so you guys are trying? Do you want your kids to be close together? JOn wants to have another one already but i dont think i want them that close together!

Jessica said...

Hi Jessie, saw a link to your blog on Allison's (which I saw on Ann's)... I am sort of a blog addict, what can I say? Anyway, your family is SO cute! And the running group sounds so cool, how did you find it? I wonder if they have one in Denver... It's good to see you.

Erin said...

First off... I'm irrate! That was a nasty trick. I almost called you right there without finishing your blog but i'm glad I didn't because now i'm not talking to you. At least until tomorrow. I'm coming running with ya and I won't back out this time. Dang I was so excited that you were prego. Well "just keep trying"! Second.. I'm obsessed with that pic of aaron and emmi flying the kite. That's the cutest pic ever.

The Murdocks said...

You freak...I'm a bit angry with ya. My stomach was churning with excitement. But you do know how to get a crowd going. Are you teaching the aerobics class or taking it? I would LOVE to take one...but I'll probably continue to say that...and never sign up for one. ALSO...is california out for his trainig? DANG IT! I was pumped at your house when Aaron was saying it was a possibility. Oh well, you will love it anywhere I'm sure. Can't wait to see you a couple weeks! Hugs.

millisue said...

He he... you pulled a quick one on everyone! You will be like the boy who cried wolf and when you do get prego (since you are "trying") no one will believe you. You are funny! That running group sounds awesome. I don't think I could ever imagine doing a grand slam... one marathon a year is good for me. Do you think you will do that? (that is if you aren't prego... wink wink)

Benni's said...

Hey Jessie! I LOOOVE reading your blog! I can't believe you and your body! You're a freakin powerhouse! Good for you! That is SOOO awesome! You're girls are super cute. :)

Traci said...

Sorry for my absence. You know I still love you right?
I love the pictures. Especially the one with Aaron and the kite. We will keep you in our prayers as to the job situation. Been there, done that! My vote is for Arizona, it's really pretty there! And that's where my roots are :)!
HOpe you are all having a Merry Christmas!
