I'm trying to get my photo's in order and came across these pics. This is right before Olive hid from us.....I wonder Why?????

Olive, our Desert Tortoise, woke up about a month ago, she is very slow and she stays out of her burrow to sleep in her favorite corner of the yard. Well a couple of weekends ago it got really cold and I thought she should sleep in her burrow, so I took her over and basically made her go down it. Two weeks, no sign of her and I'm freaking out cause I just got the weekly update from the Tortoise Group saying they don't like their burrow this time of year because it is colder down there.... SO great, for sure I've kill our little baby. So Tyler, Phenix & Gage duct taped three broom handles together and rigged a camera and light to it and stretched it down the burrow. Well this took three tries. The first one not long enough, the second one kept hitting the top and turning off the camera, the third made it and Phenix kept saying I can't see her. We have been looking every day in the yard and if you have seen our yard it is a Vegas yard, small and lots of rocks. But if you know how I plant flowers, shrubs and trees, you know I over plant. I don't want to see any dirt, or in our case, rocks. So to end the story, if you listen in the back ground of the video you can hear that I find her hiding in the yard in a spot we've all checked before in a huge pile of flowers........

Gage started training with a Soccer team this winter to condition for football, well he ending up being great at it and really liking it. I think thats what the coach had in mind. So its official I'm a Soccer Mom.

We took Phenix to get her ear pierced on the top of her ear for her birthday..... We didn't want some random teenager in the mall to do it, so we did it Vegas Style! He looks like a real professional doesn't he???? Richard wouldn't even get out of the car. We're always up for an adventure!

Phenix's 14th Birthday

Gage wanted to model the Juicy.

She wanted cake balls not a cake...

Wow Phenix is 14 today, I cant believe my little girl is going to High School in 5 Months. It seems like just yesterday Ty and I were on fertility drugs, counting days, blood tests and I wish I had all the money I spend on pregnancy test. I bet allot of you did not know this but Tyler and I decided to try one more month of fertility then off to Peace Core. Well right before that peanut butter shot you have to get a pregnancy test and surprise Phenix saved me I was so scared of that shot! This is a few things about Phen you probably didn't know.

1. She is a straight A student.

2. She LOVES life with all her heart.

3. Phenix doesn't care what anyone think of her or drama, do you know how hard that is when your a teen....
4. Loves Jazz, Ballet and Tennis.
5. Going to be a Anesthesiologist.
6. Phen is moving to Australia to surf and buy a house on Possum street. She even has the picture of the a house.
7. She loves her brother and they barely ever fight. And I don't even think you can call it a fight when they do.
8. She has to messy room. I tell everyone you need a tetanus shot to go in.
9. Phenix is absolutely boy crazy...... She falls in love at least twice a day.
10. L.O.V.E.S. chocolate! I told her she would eat a grasshopper if it was dipped in chocolate.
11. She doesn't like kids..... I wonder were she gets that from..... She has a few favs not many.
12. JUICY, JUICY,JUICY! need I say more.
13. She has a passion for fashion. Ive taught her well.
14. Loves to volunteer.
15. Phen is BRILLIANT! Ive said it before and I will say it again she is the smartest person I know......

Happy Birthday Phenix! I love you so much. I love your stories when I pick you up from school and when you tell me about all the books you read and then quiz me cuz you know I have a great skill of pretending to listen, because of Gage, that never stops talking. I love that you have plans for your life and they are all such and adventure..... Happy 14th......
