Ok, ok, ok I didn't last long!

Ok, I know I didn't last long not blogging. So here is my big debut on youtube!!! Todd and I were interviewed at the Defeat Autism Now conference in October, about bio-medical treatments & autism. Hope you guys enjoy. Dr. Levinson made a huge impact on me at my first conference in New Jersey about a year after JoJo was diagnosed. He told everyone to in vision your son or daughter better and have faith in a higher power & determination. He really impacted me that day, & I'm grateful for him for that.

Goodbye for now!

I'm going to have to give blogging a break for now. We finally moved out and haven't gotten the Internet which makes it hard to blog. I must say its been liberating & frustrating! So goodbye for now, its been so fun!

Biggest Loser!!!!

Ok, so I'm SOOOO excited! My mom and brother Talan just tried out for the BIGGEST LOSER. They got in line at 7 am and were number 425, and got to see all kinds of past contestants. Seriously, I'm so jealous. I'm the biggest fan of the biggest loser and have watched it since season 1!!! Ok, so Talan got at call back!!! YEAH!!! He goes on Tues. for his second audition. I'm seriously so excited. Keep you fingers crossed for him. (sorry to say my mom didn't get a call back, although she is pretty excited she didn't. She just wanted Talan to get in.) My Mom & Tal waiting in line. .
Felipe from this season. I love him! My mom said Felipe & Sione were so nice to everyone.

My mom & Betty Sue. Can you say look alike! They even act alike.

My mom and Sione from this season too. Doesn't he look so good. Sione also went to Mesa High and was such a nice guy! I'm rooting for Sione & Felipe!!!

Kids & Dad = FUN!

We look forward to the weekends so we can spend time with Daddy! Todd works two jobs and nights so the only time we get to see him is on the weekends. The kids love their Daddy.He always has a dirty face! I really can't get enough of him
climbing all over him!

So this is a huge step!! I told jojo to smile for the camera and he stoped and looked right at me and smiled!!!!! So exiting. (little, by little)

John & Daddy!

Can any face get any sweeter!

girls, girls, girls!!!

So nothing is better then to spend time with girlfriends! I'm pretty sure we didn't stop laughing the whole 2 days. It was the funnest, thanks Sara for hosting it. The one thing I learned (besides many other things that will stay private!) is that one night is NOT long enough!!!! Next time we need at least 2 nights if not more. I was not ready to come home, and am counting down the days for the next one. While we were there we got to hear Sara sing at a benefit dinner. She was amazing like always. Is you haven't heard her sing you are missing out. I think the best part of it was Tori singing along to all the songs!
Nat & Holly! Nat was sick the whole time and was a trooper.

Me, Sara, Tori, & Becky

Us at Picasso's pizza!! The best bread I have ever had. They also have a great gluten free menu for all you autism moms!!!

Charity Charms!

For Christmas Todd got me a Charity charm, & then for valentines day he finished it up with a bracelet to put the charm on. I think charity charms are the neatest things. 75% of the charity charm is donated pack to the charity that you pick. Of course I picked a puzzle piece and gave the donation to ACT today and organization that helps fund therapy's for family's with autism. It's the cutest charm and the cutest bracelet, I LOVE IT. They have so many cute charms to pretty much every charity organization. I absolutely love mine, it was the best present! Thanks Todd. I love you.

They come in this cutest box.
Here is my charm. So cute huh!

Look at the cute bag it came in!


Ok, so I know it's almost March and I'm finally blogging about Christmas. I have been a serious slacker. So I tried to get these pictures in order but it didn't happen. Christmas this year was a lot of fun. John LOVED getting so many presents and had a blast. JoJo on the other hand wasn't so enthused about it. He wouldn't open up any present and didn't want to be in the room when we were opening presents. He warmed up later and came in. I'm hoping next year might be the year where he likes Christmas. John on the other hand loved everything about it. It's so fun to watch him get so excited. JoJo taking a ride on Johns new car!

John & and his new car. He loves it. He rides it all around the house, it's super cute.

Todd made me this picture frame. I think he did a great job for his first time.

I am a Child of God

Sunday, John came home from nursery with a crown that said, "I am a Child of God." He was so proud of it, and wouldn't let us take it off him. Wouldn't it be nice if we could all wear crowns like this, so we could remember who we really are.
