What a week... So I went to work on Wednesday feeling a little achey. Andy was home sick with a bug. Wed night I went to bed at 830p just thinking I was exhausted from the crazy weekend. I woke up my alarm on Thursday, was coughing thinking much of it but felt really out of it. Andy said that is how his began and he didn't think I should go to work. I couldn't even get into the shower I was feeling so yucky. I called into work, went back to bed. I don't even remember Thursday. Andy kept coming in and taking my temp. He called my mom at one point that evening since it was up to 102.8. She had Andy get me into a cool shower to try to get my temp down. Didn't work as planned. I somehow got aspirin down and slept more. My temp didn't break until Friday night. I tell ya, this bug is nasty. Even when I had the flu last winter I don't think it was this bad. I seriously do not remember Thursday at all!!! I am still a little shaky this morning but not as bad feeling. I don't think if I had to, I would be able to work today, that is how bad this is. I am going to throw some chicken, carrots, celery and onion in a crockpot and call it a morning.

Merry Christmas!

Winston before we left
Hef before we left
Winnie knows something is up... where we going mom??
Tired pups on Christmas eve
Hef sleeping with my parents new kitten sleeping on him. They had thought the kitty was a girl and my mom named her Anna Belle, well his name now is Anna BILL. hahaha The puppies were so happy to see us. It's nice to be home but man I really loved it out there. The sad thing is I didn't take a single pic of Andy's parents or family but it was a non stop weekend. I am hoping someone in his family will send us pictures!!!! Have a very Merry Christmas all!

This is Superstition Mountain. See all those houses that is part of Dave and Ingrid's neighborhood. This was the sunset on Sunday night. David is my cousin. We grew up living next door to each, we are 16 days apart, graduated high school together, we are more like brother and sister. I have never been down to visit them and Dave comes home whenever he can. He is a Captain for Mesa airlines. We had the greatest time on Sunday with them. They have the most beautiful house it's crazy. I am so proud of him. I love you Dave so dearly it's not funny!!!!

Arizona 2007

This is what it looked like when we left on Friday... the high was 38 but for MN that's warm this time of the year!!!
The sunrise we would see every morning from Andy's parents house. I would sit on the sofa and watch it rise every morning.
The fountain in Fountain Hills
One of the amazing views we saw on our desert safari.
Andy and I up in the mountains.
The high this day was around 58 and up in the mountains it was a little cooler yet. Andy's sister's family took us on this expedition that was way fun.

I can't believe we are back from Arizona already! It was such a super time that I didn't want to leave. I can totally see why my cousin Dave and his wife Ingrid, along with Andy's parents love it out there. We came home to cold and snow and so not happy about it. But I need to get to bed now. I took about 140 pics this weekend. I will try to download them tomorrow morning! Bye for now!

Merry Christmas!!!!!!

I have approx 40 min of work left. I will be FLYING out the door at 10a SHARP! I then have to run to the bank, cash my check, run home, finish getting the puppies ready to leave. My parents are taking Winston and my sister is taking Hefner. We are also taking all of our Christmas presents to my mom's house since on Monday we arrive back in Minnesota at 2:10p. Pretty much heading straight to my parents from the airport. We have to meet Andy's sister and her family at their house by 2:30 and our flight leaves at 4:20p. UGH so much to do so little time. I know I must be crazy to be at work this morning but I hate leaving my desk a mess and with the first of the year coming up I wanted to get more work done. It's crazy here the 1st of the year with new insurances and verifying insurance. I work for a pretty big clinic and we have 4 satellite offices.
So I wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Hanukkah!!!

Kids opening their gifts!
Me and the kids... yes I have my puppy print jammies bottoms on! :)

Lily showing off her new penquin jammies...

We are going to celerate both holidays. Andy is Jewish and I am Catholic, but both non practicing. However we want the kids (and if we have kids) to grow up deciding what they want to be and have the best of both worlds.

I am off to my friend Jen(Jenners) house. She is cutting and coloring my hair. Say good bye to the really long stuff. Am cutting about 4 inches off I think.

So nice to be back! I missed blogging big time!
Have a great night! J~

I am back!!!!!!!!

This is my parents old yeller lab Chevy. It was the first Chevy and Hef met.
Playing so nice!
nanny nanny boo boo can't catch me!
Winston in his Brett Favre jersey... I need to find Hef a ViQueen one so Andy can have a ViQueen doggie.
man they are fat boys! hahaha

So we found out 2 weeks ago that we are going to Arizona this Friday. We are only going from Friday night and fly home on Monday morning. Andy's parents live there and we are celebrating his mom's 70th birthday which is today.
I will add pics of the kids opening their hanukkah gifts.

No puter again

No I didn't forget I have this... :) My computer DIED again. Hopefully I will have it back by this weekend. We are in the middle of a snow storm right now. Will probably end up with 2-5 inches by 6p they said. Which means my 1/2 hour drive home will be forever!!!!
