Okay so I don't do much of this...like write my thoughts and stuff unless it has to do with a picture. But I was thinking about this year and I just have some thoughts. This year has been so crazy for our family. MountainSport Man is going to school and we are living with my very patient parents! I have to work...pretty much full-time for benefits so that MSM can go to school full-time and concentrate on grades and getting through school as quickly as possibe! I have always worked one way or another, but when we lived in West Jordan I had the opportunity to stay home with my kid (DCar) while MSM worked. I didn't think I would like it very much...I thought...to be honest...that it would be boring. Now that I have had to start working full-time and I have done it for a year and some...I can pretty much say...without a shadow of a doubt that I LOVE staying at home. Once I got the hang of staying home and realizing all I could get accomplished in ONE day...I started having FUN. NO..I didn't make money...but I was my own boss...I prioritized my day and I accomplished SOOOOO much. I managed to clean something, do laundry, work with DCar on his letters, sign language, or reading, play with DCar, go to lunch with a friend, go grocery shopping (or just fun shopping), put DCar down for a nap, read, pick up after DCar, and have dinner made (okay most of the time) by the time MSM came home from work. I embraced being a mom and a homemaker and I am telling you now...it was my calling. Since going back to work, I have realized what a blessing that was! I miss it! Don't get me wrong...I love that I am blessed with a job that is flexible and I can work my schedule around my kids, but they are missing out on the full mom that I can be. I know other women can do it...and they are much more organized and stronger than I am...but I am finding it hard to be a good MOM and a good EMPLOYEE. Trying to manage both I feel that no matter how hard I try, I'm letting one or the other down. I don't get as much done during the day when I work because I have to sit behind a desk. I get home and am exhausted and so I am definitely not giving my kids the quality time that they deserve...on my days off I want them to be just that...days off. I suck...and I am sucking at juggling both. I know I have to endure until MSM graduates...but it has been hard. But it has helped me with one thing...I totally appreciate and will be forever thankful when I can be "just" a Mom again. It is definitely hard work but work that makes me happy. I LOVE my kids...I love the joy they bring to me in my life...I love even the trials that they bring...it's a struggle, it's hard, and I definitely mess up ALL the time being a MOM...but I LOVE everything that comes with it...even the tears...and believe me there have been a lot of them! I can't wait until I can be a full-time/stay at home Mom again! I miss my kids...even though I see them all of the time.
So I made these collage's because I got these pictures taken of them and never was able to show all of them...so even though these are old...here are my two little Rascals...I'm very partial, but I think they are adorable! DCar is 5 and loves to laugh, play any video game, and ride anything with wheels! PeePs is 2 and loves to color, play dress up, and do anything DCar does! So ENJOY! Oh and have a good NEW YEAR!

So I had a hair appointment on Saturday and decided to put some red in it! Well bold red streaks...just because I was getting really bored with just color...and if any of you really know me, you know that I normally get bored with my hair...well anyway...the red came out REALLY bright...like candy apple red! So who knew that my hair would take color so well! Well I like it...I think its fun and it will do...It goes well with valentine's day...so I guess i'll have Bright red in my hair until the holiday passes...FUN FUN!
Before my hair appointment...not bad...
had some on the side...why not put some in the back...little crazy I know...but I succeeded in not being bored...for the time being!

We had our annual Wright Talent Show on Christmas Eve, the wives sang, "Santa Baby", ok lip synced! Rian did some kicks and baby tumbles, PeePs sang, "Twinkle, Twinkle and ABC song" She didn't want to stop, but the show had to go on...Ethen sang one of his made up songs, DCar and Zak did some hip hop and break dance...and then had a break dance battle...pretty sweet! TaeLor did the worm and then showed us a video of her piano concert and dance concert. Krystal and Derek did a magic trick, MountainSport Man played the guitar, Rance sang...and Ryan and Mandi's talent was surprising us with great news...THEY R PREGNANT!!!
MountainSport Man and I woke up around 7:00 am after going to bed around 3am...to take potatoes over to Grandma M.'s to bake. See I volunteered to cook for 90 Skywest Dispatchers, Crew Schedulers, and Maintenance Dispatchers on Christmas Day because they couldn't find anyone to cater their Christmas Dinner! So Mom, Dad, and MSM helped cook the food...we cooked shredded Roast Beef, Spiral Ham, and Baked Potatoes. It was a big job, but we did it!
These next two pictures are actually us eating the traditional family breakfast soufle! Yummy, Yummy!
Here you Go SciFi Dad
