Blog, say what?

January! According to this thing called my blog I haven't updated my little online public journal since January. So many moments and memories and frustrations and good times and ordinary days and funny things the kids say that I haven't

written down and  now they are forgotten. Sad.
I wanna know how the bloggers do it. How does one clean your house and take care of your kids and do the laundry and run to the store and plan out and prepare for your callings, and  pickup kids and run them to this activity and that activity and this other activity and this other activity and plan a family home evening and make sure they practice their piano and deal with the temper tantrums and teach them life lessons and have those one on one moments and do your visiting teaching and clean up puke from whichever one of your kids gets sick who then spreads it through all the other 5 kids and sometimes your husband, and take them to the dr office for their well checks or their broken bones and make sure everyone has their shots caught up and visit the dentist and make sure they are registered for this and that and  and make a healthy breakfast lunch and dinner, and fit in some time for traditions and parties and birthdays and holidays and mail this package here and make this return there and find a good deal on this and that and exercise and  shower and shave ones legs and get your kids haircuts and clean your house again and make sure the bedding gets washed and clean the car and wash the messy hand prints off the walls and mop up the spilled juice or the melted Popsicle and make sure homework is done, chores are helped with, toys are cleaned up, tears are wiped away, the backyard gets cleaned up somewhat, band-aids are applied, and school projects are researched and put together and turned in, and baths are given, prayers are said, scriptures are read, loves are given, threats are made, and by this time it is your bed time--- WHERE THE HECK DOES ANYONE EVER GET TIME TO BLOG????? Right now I'm suppose to be figuring out the best way to teach a fathers day song to the primary kids tomorrow for them to be ready to sing in sacrament meeting on fathers day, but I've hit a wall and looked on my blog, saw it was wonky, and thought, I should blog. at 10 pm. on a Saturday night, knowing that Daniel has meetings at 630 am, and is speaking in sacrament meeting tomorrow, and I have to get the kids ready for church by myself and have this singing time ready to go and be there by 9. hahaha. Wow- life is a little bonkers. Maybe it's not life. Maybe it is just me. I'm bonkers. How do bloggers actually find time to blog?

my Daniel!
So, since January, Daniel had a birthday, Benny had a birthday, my truly awesome wonderful generous father came down and helped us with more home improvement projects-(replacing the flooring in our kitchen, repainting the entire house again, adding a bench into the master shower, making more shoe shelves in the garage, and moving the fireplace up, creating a bench and mantle and limestone wall around it. He then watched our kids overnight as we were headed to Tahiti (Christmas gift from Daniel) before Brooke could take over. We went to Tahiti- Moorea and Bora Bora- best vacation ever!  I should have done a blog post just for that alone- it was magnificent! Then Tommy turned 1, Joshy turned 2,  Ben graduated preschool, James graduated Kinder, Ky and Ty finished up 5th and 3rd grades. Somewhere in there Ty advanced to green belt in taekwondo, James is gonna be following hopefully next week, Ky & Ty are back in piano with a superb teacher, Ky got sent to the county science fair, had her seaworld field trip with Daniel and the 5th grade, she has been taking sewing from a gem of a friend, our garden has been more plentiful this time around, Daniel has been busy, but manages to still help me with everything. Ty got his bear in scouts. James has 2  aquatic turtles since crawler went missing. Joshy broke his clavicle, just like James. THe 3 oldest finally got over their fear of no training wheels in regards to their bikes, and now we enjoy family bike rides whenever we can manage. We got to spend a super quick weekend with my fam for our annual family reunion, and got to meet Christies baby boy. Such a cutie- makes me baby hungry. Johnny and Lala had their sweet baby girl that we hopefully get to meet in July. The 3 oldest boys had a blast at Father and Sons. We make a quick day trip to Mesa to take Daniels mom out for mothers day as she was there visiting Daniels uncle the day before mothers day. We got back home sometime after midnight and since i was leading the primary kids in the mothers day song in sacrament meeting, all hell broke lose that morning with trying to get the kids ready for church, and we made it to church with barely 5 minutes before i went in to lead the song(the poor primary president was kinda freaking wondering where the heck I was), which none of my kids sang as Ty had a melt down as soon as we walked into the building and ran away, so Daniel went after him, James was mad that ty had yelled at him, so he ran off the other way, Joshy chased after Daniel, Kylie went chasing after Joshy, and i had Ben hold tommys hand in the foyer as i had to go into the chapel to do the song. HAHAHAH- oh the memories of that mothers day!
