I have never seen this before so I took a picture. I've been debating whether or not its blog worthy. I decided I didnt care and here it is.
I picked the largest egg in the whole carton and when I cracked it open, out came two yokes! Do you care?? Probably not. Oh well.

Im not sure how many of you know this, but my brother Ben and his wife Janae have finally been approved to adopt a baby and are just waiting for a beautiful baby to come their way. If any of you know of any wonderful people that are giving up their baby, please let us know. We cant wait to finally have a new niece or nephew and to see Ben as a Dad, weird!

We sold our truck!!! It was a a miracle! I found a company online that buys vehicles and they wanted to buy our truck, damage and all. There were a few times we were nervous that he would retract his offer or offer less but the guy we worked with turned out to be very forgiving and bought the truck after all. It was amazing. We were ecstatic. Then the next morning we woke up and we had a lot of extra money in our account. I guess Jesús had one more grant from CSUB that we were supposed to get and we didnt even know it. Now we wont be hurting at the end of the month and we have extra to pay to credit cards and put into savings for a down payment on a house. Ah the blessings of paying tithing. We have truly been blessed.

If you have noticed, I have a few buttons on the right side of my page. Two of them I probably read the most, CJane and the Nie Nie Dialogs. These two girls are sisters and Nie Nie is the one that was in the private plane crash last August. In reading CJanes I discovered that they also had a brother that had a blog called the Jolly Porter. He is no longer posting to his blog but I decided to go and read his old posts. He is very funny and found my self laughing at almost every post. He reminds me of Dave Barry, my Mom used to read his articles to us in the paper and we would always laugh so hard. So check it out, laugh or dont but I think its worth the read. http://www.thejollyporter.blogspot.com/

We are renting a condo from my friend Shaun and its an amazing place. One thing we never worried about was the locks on the bedroom doors. About a month ago, Patrick locked the bedroom door with us all inside the bedroom and he shut the door. I thought to myself "wow its a good thing we were all in here and he wasnt in here by himself" and I told him not shut anymore doors. Well lately he has had a fascination with shutting all the doors. The rule is to leave all doors open, unless Mommy or Daddy shut them. He hasnt been really good at following this rule and the other day I was in our bathroom getting ready to go out and Patrick and Elena were both in our room with me. Patrick was playing with the door and the lock and I told him to leave it alone. I walked out to answer the phone or something and when I got off the phone, Patrick came up to me and told me he locked the door. I looked up and saw our bedroom door was closed. I immediately panicked and ran to the door. Elena started banging on the door from the inside and when I didnt open it she started screaming. I called Shauns mom who lives a few blocks away, she told me to the hole in the bottom of the doorknob which didnt work, and while I was talking to her Elena stopped crying and fell asleep right inside the door. I called Jesús and told him what was going on and he told me he was on his way home. I called my Mom and asked her to come over. We tried everything! Finally Jesús took the hammer and had to break the doorknob off all the way. We couldnt get the door open because Elena was asleep right next to the door so we had to push her out of the way. Im glad it wasnt in the hot car or something. It was more difficult to listen to her cry, but once she fell asleep I was able to calm down. Patrick was scared and ran in his room. We have been a little more stern on the shutting the doors rule.

Luckily our kids drink apple juice like its going out of style, and the apple juice jugs are perfect for water storage! So we have been washing them out and filling them up with water and storing them around the house. This is our largest collection. We are storing most of it under Elena's crib but there are several more under the kitchen sink and in the closet. Hopefully we have enough for a small emergency.

This Memorial Day was probably so far the most memorable. Jesús got up early to help cook for the College Heights Ward breakfast. So since he was there cooking, I took the kids over and we had a fabulous breakfast. Afterwards we dropped the kids off at my Moms house and Jesús took me and my brother Ben and his wife Janae down the River for a little White Water Rafting. It was so much fun!! It was awesome to see Jesús as a guide. And he was the best guide there! He kept us safe the whole time and even though I got nervous a couple times he always made me feel safe. If you want a little adventure go buy tickets at Costco and when you go down, ask for Jesús.
When we got back to Moms we went swimming with the kids. This was Elena's 2nd time in the pool officially but she wouldnt touch the water last time so I count this as the first. She loved it! After she got used to the water that is.
If you look at the flames on the candles, they are different colors. They were sooooo cool!!
