Getting her to get her uniform on was a challenge. She said that the socks itched and the shorts were too big, but once she was in it she looked good! She was also very hesitant about playing. I think that she just did not know what to expect. Once she started playing she loved it. When it was over she was sad to come home and wanted to keep playing. They play 4 quarters of 5 minutes each. She ran the whole time that she was in the game and she was very tired at the end. The White Tigers (Haley's team) won 3-1 over The Black Widows. She actually made one of the goals! (Although Lewis does not believe us that she did. He thinks she was just "part of the pack" that made the goal.) Hopefully she will keep enjoying soccer as much as I did while growing up.
Isn't she just the cutest freakin' thing that you have ever seen?

Here is Cris right before we left. I was messing with the camera and the one of him through the table actually came out. You can also see from the picture that we ate outside. It was a beautiful spring day to visit Belgium. We must go back again sometime soon.

*Abigail needs a nap during the day for me to keep my sanity

The reason it is strange that I love this show is because it is totally FREAKY!!! I hate freaky/scary shows and movies. HATE. And LOVE them! I am like a bi-polar show watcher. I am fine while I watch the movie or show, but it is later that night, when I am trying to go to sleep that the ideas that the movie/show could really happen, start to freak me out.
I am an enigma wrapped in an uncertainty trapped in a big ball of contradiction. Hello world. My name is Kendra. Knowing me is not knowing me!
I will stay up all night imagining murderers walking through my hallway, waiting behind the shower curtain to kill me when I turn the bathroom light on in the middle of the night. (Which I don't do! I go in the dark if I have to go!)
I just finished watching the 2ND episode of this show and I am so excited for next week. The first problem is now I need to go and watch something else to get the images out of my mind. The second problem is the only show that I have taped to watch is C.S.I. which also has disturbing images (not nightmarish, but disturbing nonetheless). So now tonight I will dream about Nick and Greg (George Eads and Eric Szmanda) checking out a murder crime scene at my house and accusing me of murdering Uncle Marty (Harry Hamlin).* (I won't even tell you about my dream after watching Poltergeist and Brokeback Mountain. You want to talk freaky...) Even if I have this twisted dream I will not stop watching this show. I love it and I can't wait to see who the murder/murders is/are. I will be sure to let you know what, if anything, I dream about tonight!
*When I have freaky dreams while going to sleep I usually get up and watch Food Network all night long. Gotta love Alton Brown and Unwrapped!

So Abigail says, "Who's FAT mommy?", while looking around.
I tell her that PHAT means cool and it is a nice thing to say but it is different from FAT, which is a mean thing to say. And by the way we do not call people FAT in the mean way.
A few seconds go by and she says, "Mommy you are one of the fattest people I like, in the nice way. You are fat. Mommy is fat!! Can we get a muffin?"
"Yes Abigail, I am. Thanks for that."
So I am standing in the kitchen today talking to Lyndie and I say, "What do you call cheese that is not yours?"
She thinks about it for a minute, going through all of the different cheeses; cheddar, swiss, etc.
I say, "You call it nacho cheese."
I think she actually groaned. And I laughed for about an hour.
So consider this post, yesterday's post.

Jason and Haley were sick today. They cough all night, and then they are grumpy all day.
The DVD player got put back in the car today. Finally. It works!
Lewis and I watched the Jazz game. I am soooo glad that I do not go to all of the games this year. Some would be nice, but not all.
I am going now so that I can watch The Hills. Oh yea!

This was in front of my brother's neighbor's house. It was so dang windy at our house today that I could not do pictures outside. When we got to Cris' house they had zero wind so I scrambled for a place to take the pictures. This was the best place. I think they all look good... in their own way.

where? where? where do i lay my eggs?
as i creep along the wall i can see everything around me.
i even see you.
laying below me.
slow steady breaths leave your mouth.
dark. moist. mouth.
i see the corner of the room. i change my thoughts to the corner.
dark. high. isolated.
as i creep to the corner the wind from the fan sweeps me off of my feet.
i am falling.
swiftly, swiftly falling.
onto your head.
you felt me fall.
you jump out of bed.
you claw at your hair.
clawing. screaming. jumping.
up to turn the light on.
it is 2:14 am.
you pull at your hair.
pulling. yanking. still screaming.
i fall to my freedom.
you feel a bobby pin in your hair.
you laugh and yank it out.
the man in your bed sighs and laughs at you.
you giggle and turn out the light.
you get back into bed as i climb silently up the wall by the door.
ha ha, i tricked you.
you never even knew i was there.
i can hear you breathing. slowly. softly.
dark. moist. mouth.
i change my mind again. the mouth is better.
until tomorrow night my dear!!
Last weekend we took the kids to Sonic for a $1.00 treat and I guess we happened to get there just at the right time because 6 one dollar treats was $3.21! Yes! Score one for us!
On Tuesday our neighborhood/ward had an Easter Egg Hunt. I took the kids because Lewis was at home not feeling well with a migraine. The kids found a ton of eggs and each won at least one prize! Abi looks tired because the egg hunt started 30 minutes past her bedtime. Plus it was really windy outside.
On Wednesday I had to go to Wendover for a food show/conference for the night. Jessica agreed to go with me so I would have some company. (To be honest I had decided not to go because I did not want to go alone, but then she stepped up and agreed to go with!! Thanks!) Here we are at the reception after the food show. They told us it would be appetizers and drinks but when we got there it was a full on dinner. Yummy! I look really red in this picture, and I do not know why. I am not tan/sunburned at all...
BUT!!! There was one thing that got us laughing our butts off and cringing at the same time. It was this on the bed skirt...
Yesterday while driving in Draper the television/DVD player in my car fell off of the ceiling and hit me in the head. I screamed and slammed on my brakes. I thought something hit the roof of the car and the roof dented in. My kids stared screaming and none of us knew what was going on. If I had been on the I-15 we could all be dead right now. I would have slammed on the brakes and then cars would have hit us for sure. As it was I came to a complete stop in the middle of the road. After the player hit me in the head it fell onto Jason and cut his face in 4 places.
Haley brought the bear home from school for the night. Yea!
We got a new couch. Thanks M.R.!!
(Yes those are winter/Christmas houses on the shelf behind the couch. They are gone now, so stop judging me!!)
I went out to lunch with the ladies from West Point. Left to Right: Lori, Me, Marlo, Helen, and Cara. We had fun talking about old times, and then like a few days later Lori had her baby!
