My hubby is so awesome!

So even though I asked him to finish a "Honey Do List" tonight and he didn't get it done, I still have to give praises to my hard-working, freakin' awesome husband! Lately I've been taking him for granted and shame on me for doing so because he works so hard to support this family. Tonight I got home tired and a little cranky from work to find that Erick hadn't done any of the things on the list (except eat cake which was the last thing on the list), he hadn't cleaned up from dinner, and he was already in bed. :( I was sulking on the couch for a few minutes when he got up, came into the living room and rubbed my shoulders and told me about his day even though he was exhausted! I wanted to cry it was so sweet and meant a lot to me. So here is my tribute.

My Hubby
....gets up for work by 5am everyday. I don't even budge until 7!
....makes the 1/2 hour commute one way without complaining even when there's construction
....tries to be in to work by 6am, 6:30 at the latest. a minimum of 10 hours a day, often more, and only gets 45 min lunch and one other break. His work....woodworking so he's always lifting heavy things, stressing about precise measurements, he's constantly moving and only gets to sit down at lunch.
....never complains about how much he works or how long the hours are. I complain I'm tired after a 5 hour shift of serving.
....only occasionally complains about me talking to him into the late hours.
....will stay up late with me even though he's got a long and early day ahead of him. the best father to my little girl.
....stays worthy of his priesthood.
....keeps me humble.
....does all he can to provide for our family.
....motivates me to go to church when I just don't feel like it.
....spoils me rotten.
....listens to me complain without saying a word. me really great massages. I love to be pampered.
....always has what's best for me in mind.
....loves me for who I am even with all my flaws and ramblings and misgivings and no matter what kind of mood I'm in.

Erick you are the best husband in the whole wide world. I love you so much. ~ Aud

Pictures...Lots and lots of Pictures

Myelle never ceases to amaze me. How she fits into those tight spots I don't know. She was really peeved when she couldn't get out though. LOL
From the family reunion when Sarah and Alex got baptized. Lots of cousins and aunts to love Myelle up. The Twin Falls Temple was beautiful and we topped it off visiting Shoshone Falls.
And this is a whole bunch of Myelle just being Myelle. With Mommy and Daddy, Grandma, and her buddy Kobe.

Moving was fun and scary. Myelle wanted to help alot. She was really good at making sure the shelves were up right. LOL As you can see everything was a mess.....still is kind of....okay, okay is really messy still. One of these days we'll find a place for everything.

A Quick Update

Soooo....lots has been going on lately. Not only have we been still settling into our new apartment we've had some crazy "Welcome to Rexburg" moments. Erick ended up in the the last week. After an emergency surgery and then a quick procedure the second time he's feeling tons better. He's back to work this week and man is he back to work. He worked until 10:15pm tonight!

Myelle likes going to Maria's when I have to go to work and playing with her girls Tylee and Ellie. Thank you Maria! Work has been okay. Love the people and the place is great, but boy is it slow on this 7 week break. I keep telling myself just wait 3 more weeks until the college kids are back and then it will be busy.

Not much more than that going on with us. Happy Thursday!

Is it just me?

or are all of the sales for junk food?! It's probably just me since I'm working on eating healthy, but come one people What happened to our $.49/lb for a whole chicken? I haven't been able to find that anywhere. Sigh. Oh well. I'll just keep adjusting our grocery budget.

On a cute sidenote: There is a car just outside our apartment whose car alarm beeps every 10-15 min and it is quite startling at first. Poor Myelle cries "Mommy!" and then puts her hand over her heart and says " 'Care me." Aww. I wish there was more I could do to make her feel better about it.
