Back in action!

WOW I don't even know where to start.....

My laptop was declared dead on December 10th at 3:43 p.m. Services were held, and many tears were shed!
What could I do two weeks before Christmas? No way could I afford a new one!
(Until you have been without you cannot comprehend the pain!)
Fast forward to Christmas morning.......
When the love of my life surprised me with not only a brand new computer but also a digital camera of a caliber I wouldn't have dreamed of owning! It was wonderful, I felt like one of the kids! (and I think a couple of them were jealous!)
I have a lot of work ahead of me, trying to salvage some of the thousands of pics on my old hard drive, and mp3s, etc. Not to mention learning how to use my amazing camera. I am going to enjoy every minute! I'm sure this is not the last you have heard of this, keep your eyes open ...
I will be posting pics very soon and very often!

The worst thing ever...

Okay anyone who knows me knows I'm a little prone to exaggeration! But this is serious!! My best friend in the whole world died last week. Yes you guessed it. ......

MY COMPUTER!



I know, I know, a little perspective here. It's just that we start to take for granted how easy some things have become. If I wanted to know what time the Gateway closed I could know in 5 min. If I wanted to know exactly how much money was in my checking account I knew immediately. kids grades no problem, the square root of pie.... you name it. So if you have been wondering why I haven't been posting (and I hope you have!) it's because a nasty, mean, virus has claimed my computer. Computek is trying to resurrect it as we speak. In the mean time this post is courtesy of MJ's old faith full T-rex computer. Slower than cold tar!!


(again slight exaggeration)

So I will not be posting too frequently until I get my friend back, please pray for her, and me!

Is the check in the mail?......

Colby~ "Mom is that Jakers on the cat food bag?"

Mom~ " It sure looks like it!"

Colby~ " Did we get any money for that?" "cuz don't you think we should get paid for our cat being on the bag of food that all the cats eat?"

That's my Colby always good for a laugh!

*You have to admit it is a pretty close match!

From August to October the Kimber household kind of revolves around football season.

I love every minut of it!!

I know I would be involved in anything they choose to do but I have to admit I love football.

Well this season has come to an end with some wins and some losses but with lots of lessons learned. Brennons team had their annual banquet and Brennon received the award for.....

Littlest Big Man!

Explanation..... Smallest player on the team, but BIG contributor to the team.




I'm Very Proud of you Brennon!

Heather Kimber political corespondant for her own blog...

I am what you would call a history buff I love all things past. I don't care if it is American history or ancient history I am fascinated by it all. And now I am part of something that will be talked about and written about for the rest of time!

When I first saw Barack Obama on Opera a few years ago I was impressed! He was very down to earth and likable. I loved the way he interacted with his wife, you could tell her opinion was important to him (I don't think you can fake that). He was humble and charismatic. I will admit I did not vote for him. I worry what will happen in our country if liberal views take over our government! But I Am open minded and maybe this is what our country needs to inspire us to be patriotic and have hope & faith in our country and government. So our new president has my full support (until he screws up!) j.k. Good luck Barack and God Bless the USA!


I also need to say I was soooo impress by how gracious John McCain was in his speech. Talk about a man who truly loves his country and sacrificed as much as anyone can for it. Well fought McCain, good luck wherever you choose to go now! Thank you


Ok almost done but I do have to mention Sarah Pallin YOU GO GIRL! personally I can't imagine trying to be a wife, mother of five (yes I can imagine this part) and Vice president of the USA WOW mind blowing!! I don't think we have seen the last of her!

I want everyone to be safe so.......


Halloween rules!

1. When it appears that you have killed the monster, never check to see if it's really dead.

2. If you find that your house is built upon or near a cemetery, was once a church that was used for black masses, had previous inhabitants who went mad or committed suicide or died in some horrible fashion, or had inhabitants who performed satanic practices in your house - move away immediately.

3. Never read a book of demon summoning aloud, even as a joke.

4. Do not search the basement, especially if the power has just gone out.

5. If your children speak to you in Latin or any other language which they should not know, or if they speak to you using a voice which is other than their own, shoot them immediately. It will save you a lot of grief in the long run. NOTE: It will probably take several rounds to kill them, so be prepared.

6. When you have the benefit of numbers, never pair off and go it alone.

7. As a general rule, don't solve puzzles that open portals to Hell.

8. Never stand in, on, above, below, beside, or anywhere near a grave, tomb, crypt, mausoleum, or other house of the dead.

9. If you're searching for something which caused a noise and find out that it's just the cat, leave the room immediately if you value your life.

10. If appliances start operating by themselves, move out.

11. Do not take anything from the dead.

12. If you find a town which looks deserted, it's probably for a reason. Take the hint and stay away.

13. Don't fool with recombinant DNA technology unless you're sure you know what you are doing.

14. If you're running from the monster, expect to trip or fall down at least twice, more if you are of the female persuasion. Also note that, despite the fact that you are running and the monster is merely shambling along, it's still moving fast enough to catch up with you.

15. If your companions suddenly begin to exhibit uncharacteristic behavior such as hissing, fascination for blood, glowing eyes, increasing hairiness, and so on, get away from them as fast as possible.

16. Stay away from certain geographical locations, some of which are listed here: Amityville, Elm Street, Transylvania, Nilbog (you're in trouble if you recognize this one), the Bermuda Triangle, or any small town in Maine.

17. If your car runs out of gas at night, do not go to the nearby deserted-looking house to phone for help.

18. Beware of strangers bearing tools such as chainsaws, staple guns, hedge trimmers, electric carving knives, combines, lawnmowers, butane torches, soldering irons, band saws, or any device made from deceased companions.

Yea Halloween is here.....

Only one day left and allot to do,
here is some Halloween fun.....


Why did the game warden arrest the ghost?

*illegal Haunting!


What did the skeleton say to the vampire?

* you suck!


Why didn't the skeleton dance at the party?

*he didn't have any"body" to dance with!


What happens when a ghost gets lost in the fog?

I know you are laughing right now !
Happy Hallowen!

Worse than the kids...


I have changed my mind on what to be for Halloween more times then Colby!


First I was going to be Wonderwomen to MJ's Batman, but after seeing the swimsuit I would be wearing I changed my mind.





Then I decided Robin or the Joker, both expensive and hard to find!









Let's see how about Sara Pallin, no that's too popular. Maybe a Mummy......



hmmmm I think I would rather be something funny! How about a big white garbage can I will be white trash! (that's funny I don't care who ya are)

no too cumbersome......

Oh I know exactly what to be.........










You didn't think I was really going to tell you?......

* I guess you will have to see me on Halloween

If I just had a money tree.....




Every day on the TV we are seeing such scary things about the economy. Stock market crashing, mortgage foreclosures, job layoffs, grocery prices have gone up 30%, not to mention gas prices. I have been worrying allot about what could happen in our country.



To drive this point home my grandmother called the other day and as always asked how we are doing, I assured her we were good, but she kept pressing. After a minute she finally said what she really meant, "I mean financially how are you?, Have you lost allot in the stock market?" I paused for a minute and almost started laughing! I replied " we have five kids and one income, we didn't exactly have allot to lose!"




I have always been a glass half full kinda girl so I guess I found the silver lining in this situation! I just hope nobody steals my mattress! LOL




~Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it is about learning to dance in the rain~

Quote Freak....

I love quotes, any quotes! Movie quotes, famous people, authors, even my family. I have notebooks full of quotes I have written down, whether they inspire me, or just crack me up, I love a good quote.

Dr. Seuss is one of my favorite people to quote, but my sister Shannon comes in a close second (polo bear lol) followed by movies, Dumb & Dumber is a huge one with the extended Kimber family. But today I was thinking of Disney movies and some of the great things the characters say, I could think of so many! But I chose one that I quote allot!

So I am asking everyone to post their favorite quote, or any quote from their favorite Disney movie. Have fun I can't wait to read them all (and add them to my notebooks!)


"Let me guess we are about to go over a huge waterfall?........ Sharp rocks at the bottom?......

Bring it on!"

Choices...

I have always been a believer that we all choose our paths in life. Some things do "happen" to us, but we all choose what we do with these situations. We cannot blame others for where we are in our lives because our choices got us there! With that said.....


MJ I am so proud of you for the choices you have made
and continue to make, to have the
life you choose. I love you with all my heart!



We tell our children to Choose The Right, and sometimes it is as easy as that! Other times there is not a clear choice of right and wrong. More like left or right, they will both get you to the end destination just with a different view and different experiences on the way!



My hope is that we can all make choices that bring smiles to our faces and, bliss to our souls!

Family Pic's.....


I couldn't resist posting this great family pic with me,
and all my boy's, at Lake Powell this summer
I just love how it turned out!

The Grand Idea......

Sooooo..... My friend Kallie got this cutest catalog in the mail. Way cute clothes, Way out of our price range.

$148.00 (nope not kidding)

But hey we can sew right? That just looks like a thermal shirt we could get at Wal-mart right? A little ribbing from Jo-Ann, Some scraps of fabric, maybe a couple of buttons? Ya we can do this!!

$98.00 (yes really)

2 hours in Jo-Ann trying to find ribbing that matches

(or doesn't?)

4 hours deciding, cutting, gathering, sewing,

unpicking, re-sewing

Final Product.....

Ok, Ok maybe not quite that bad. Let's just say it didn't

quite work according to plan.

Don't worry Kallie...


I will still be game when you come up with another "grand idea!"

Tucker & Pocket shirts...



Kids I have learned go through different phases of weirdness.
some I find irritating ( having to do everything themselves.)
While some I find endearing!

Well lately Tucker, despite the cute "school clothes"I bought
(he's not in school yet)
he has decided he can only wear pocket shirts.


Why you ask... because he has" allot of stuff!"

Definition of "stuff" to a three year old.... TREASURES!

It's not the same treasures every day, it varies but I have just picked
an average day to share with you.

1. Empty eyeshadow container = Laptop
2. pedometer (broken) = Watch
3. Several hair elastics = Wrist communicator
4. Film canister = $$$ holder
5. Battery = to charge stuff
6. Random black thing = ???
It is a little frustrating having to take his "stuff" everywhere.
But it is so cute I can't be bugged.
I don't think I always stopped to enjoy these
moments with my other kids,
but knowing Tucker is my last I'm enjoying everything! (well almost!)
Now I just need some HELP..... I can't find any new T-shirts with pockets. The three we have are getting old fast, so if you have any ideas I'd love to hear them!

My Dad....

Days seem to fly by, but every year on this day my DAD is in my thoughts all day. He passed away 14 years ago today, far too soon. I know our Heavenly Father has a plan.... with that said sometimes, I feel like I got gypped! He was taken far too soon, my kids never even knew him.




I didn't know the man in this picture, I didn't know the All American distance runner, I didn't know the man who won the first Deseret News Marathon. People have asked what it was like to see my dad run those races. I don't know, I was too young. I just remember a man who loved to run and to be active in any way. He encouraged us all to run. Dad really believed running could fix anything, if we had allot on our mind he would say "go for a run" when I would get car sick on long rides dad would stop, and have me get out and "run a while" then he would pick me up about a mile down the road. I will admit I didn't always want to (kinda like piano lessons) but I now have a love of running. It really does clear your head! If you don't believe me just give it a try, it can be very addictive.






Random stuff I loved about my DAD...


1. He wanted everyone to be doing something productive at all times. ( ok I didn't always love this!)

2. He took circus peanuts on any and all road trips. (I don't even like them, but they remind me of my dad)

3.He had a deep faith in the gospel.

4. He felt strongly about keeping your body healthy with good food and exercise.

5.He loved to spend time rigging up stuff for us kids to play on. Big hot pink swing sets with trapeze, bungi cord swings, wrestling mats with dish soap. etc.. (I know your laughing right now!)

6. He made awesome divinity.







Me and my dad at our 1st daddy daughter date.








I still use the scriptures with his name on them that he gave me just before he passed away, they are very old so when someone references a scripture with page numbers mine never match up but I don't care I feel like my dad is with me when I read them.


I Love you dad and I miss you!

My new blogging buddie...



I think I may have created a blogging monster! Sunday Brennon decided he wanted to try being a blogger so I showed him the basics and he did the rest. He is having a great time expressing himself this way. I have been trying to get my kids to journal forever, so I think this is awesome. Keep it up Bren! He would love for you all to check it out and leave a comment. http://brennon30.blogspot.com/

Halloween Karma......

Whatever you conjure, whatever you brew.....


Sooner or later, Comes back to you!




Wednesday, September 24, 2008

It's almost here....

It's almost here... My favorite holiday. Halloween! Every year I have to force my self to wait for the 1st of October to get my Halloween stuff out. But nobody said I had to wait to decorate my blog! I just love all the Halloween spooky, and one night a year you can be anything you want. Hmm what should I be this year?

Facts about Halloween....

The Gaels believed that on Oct. 31 the boundary between the alive and the deceased dissolved, and the dead became dangerous for the living causing problems like, sickness & damaged crops. Costumes and masks were worn in an attempt to mimic evil spirits or placate them.

What do you call someone who puts poison in your lucky charms?

A Cereal Killer!

Wednesday, September 17, 2008

Can we move to Neverland?

This morning when I got Colby's cereal ready I said..... "Climb up to the table and eat Colb"
To which he replied... "Mom I don't need to climb, and you've got to quit treating me like a baby!"
I guess all my boy's are growing up. I think I'm going to go have a good cry!

Love/Hate Relationship...

We have all heard the term Love/Hate relationship? I think I finally understand... What could you want to do, need to do, love to do, but at the same time dread doing, put off doing and hate doing?... Yep EXERCISE!!
Now I'm not talking about going for a walk with your ipod,(or a friend) or a bike ride with your kids. (that's just fun). I mean the kind with weights, and squats, and push ups and sweat running down your... well everything! I know I need to take care of myself, especially if I want to keep eating Cold Stone. (and I do) Soooo I guess I will keep squatting and lifting and sweating. I know if those folks on biggest loser can do it, surely I can to. (at least a few days a week).
So I will get up off my backside now and get moving!!!

Just Be U...


Sometimes out of the blue you realize your baby is growing up. Not because he is 8 inches taller than you or because he out weighs you by 35 lbs. But instead just by something he says.

For instance.....
When Brennnon was 6 just starting kindergarten he informed us pink was his favorite color, and he wanted PINK jelly shoes, with glitter! (you remember those?) Devon took no time at all informing Brennon he must be a girl because only girls like pink and not to tell anyone he was Devons brother because he was a big fat sissy! Luckily Brennon didn't care what Devon thought and got those shoes. (mom designated them "play shoes" that didn't get worn to school).
Fast Forward 7 years........


Colby: Devon is there boy cheerleaders?
Devon: Yea
Colby: Wheww that's good because that's what I'm going to be.
(mom holding her breath waiting for the response)
Devon: Cool, I think you would be really good.
(lets see...very loud likes to jump and flip, I think we found his calling!)

Moms 1st emotion.. Relief
Moms 2nd emotion.. Pride

Sometimes you realize you have a pretty good kid (for a teenager)
and maybe, just maybe they have listened and learned that it is important for everyone to....
Just Be U!

Be carefull how you vote in 2008...


OLD VERSION: The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away. Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed. The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.

MORAL OF THE STORY: Be responsible for yourself!



MODERN VERSION: The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away. Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while others are cold and starving. CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN, and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food. America is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so? Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper, and everybody cries when they sing, 'It's Not Easy Being Green.' Jesse Jackson stages a demonstration in front of the ant's house where the news stations film the group singing, 'We shall overcome.' Jesse then has the group kneel down to pray to God for the grasshopper's sake, .Nancy Pelosi & John Kerry exclaim in an interview with Larry King that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share. Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity & Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the beginning of the summer. The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the government .Hillary gets her old law firm to represent the grasshopper in a defamation against the ant, and the case is tried before a panel of federal judges that Bill Clinton appointed from a list of single-parent welfare recipients. The ant loses the case. The story ends as we see the grasshopper finishing up the last bits of the ant's food while the government house he is in, which just happens to be the ant's old house, crumbles around him because he doesn't maintain it. The ant has disappeared in the snow. The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize the once peaceful neighborhood.

MORAL OF THE STORY: Be careful how you vote in 2008.

Have you forgotten?

I will never forget the call from MJ telling me to turn on the TV, laying in bed wondering if what I was seeing was real. I will never forget driving to Salt Lake for my 5th month (pregnant) checkup with Colby, listening to all the reports (was it over?) I will never forget crying, praying my boys in school were safe. I will never forget wondering what kind of a world my new baby was being born into. I don't think anyone will ever forget where they were on September 11th. Let's also try not to foget those who sacrifice so much for our freedom.

Colbys dental whoes..

The Friday before labor day Colby tells me his cheek is hurting, I look in his mouth and decide its just six year old molars coming in and give him some Tylenol. Saturday it continued hurting and started swelling. (so much for mothers intuition) By Monday his face was very swollen! When dad got home from work he told Colb "Alvin, Simon and Theodor called they want their cheeks back.) We got him into the dentist on Tuesday, it turns out a tooth they had capped last year had abscessed. OUCH!! They started him on an antibiotic to get the swelling down so they could pull it. The following Monday we went back in and they gave Colby Demerol to help "mellow him out." This is where is gets funny. I have never heard so much funny stuff out of colby's mouth (and that's saying something) The Dr. even said he was the best ever. Just after he had the tooth pulled he announced "I didn't like that at all, I deserve a party!" We then went to wal-mart to buy his prize R2D2 (star wars) he couldn't stand up and was slurring everything he said like... "mom I want some pu... pu.... mooooom how do you say pudding?" He called his dad and said "dad I had my pooth tolled". Then on the way home while passing the gated community he said "mom why do they have all those fences and wall around those houses?" I said (half listening) "oh I don't know I guess some people like to live in fences", to this Colby said (with much understanding) "Ahhhh like cows!" Boy did I laugh. We love our Colby he is all ways good for a laugh but on Demerol it was even better, we just hope we don't have to do it again too soon.

So much to do in the summer. The 4th of july was so much fun. The 5K was a blast as always. Briggs was the big winner again this year, as Devon would say "he owned us all" finishing the race in just over 20 min. Devons time was 23 min and my official time was 23.03 (Devon couldn't lose to his old mom!)

Tuesday, June 10, 2008


Grandpa was such a constant in our lives his presence will be missed.
