Super Angie...rising

I've been sick this week which isn't a big headline. But I leave in 12 hours to compete in Vegas.

To be successful at anything, you have to rise above your trials. You have to push. You have to believe.

And so I'm rising....

Super Angie..Super Life

I am feeling so happy right now. 

Life isn't always what we want. There will always be times when we fall down. There will always be times when we are sick, injured or without a job. Tragedy strikes all. Loved ones die.  BUT I don't like focusing on those down times. I have a friend who is constantly down. She constantly finds the negatives. I have another friend who has had the same types of tragedies in her life, and yet, she has a cheery outlook. She looks up and smiles. I choose to be like that second friend.

The other night I was watching Long Island Medium on TLC. I like this show. Theresa is hilarious.  And the show gives you warm fuzzies. Often while watching it, I think about my mom who, as you know, passed away in Feb 2011.  I still cry when I think about her not being around. But often I feel her present. While watching the show the other night, I felt a warm hug from Heaven and I felt so impressed that "WE NEED YOUR MOM IN HEAVEN MORE THEN YOU NEED HER ON EARTH". I know this is true. I know my mom is in Heaven serving. I have had this witnessed to me many times. It makes me smile to think about that.

Life in Colorado is great. I do miss some friends in Utah but I'm grateful for FB because I can keep in touch with many of them. Jen Hamilton is coming to visit in two weeks. I'm soo excited for her to come. My kids are loving school here. They are making friends and getting great grades! We all love the ward and love our callings. And of course, its so peaceful and beautiful here. Our family is stronger then ever.

Life is all about finding the good. I'm happy that I find those positive things instead of focusing on the negatives.

Super Angie...Sewing Tanith

 Argh.... the pictures uploaded backwards and since I'm far too lazy to fix it, you'll just have to endure.

I bought this boxed sewing Raccoon kit about a year ago and finally gave it to Tanith. SHE WAS THRILLED. And it was sooo fun to teach her how to sew. This is a very simple craft but to her, it was everything. She let Brennan take a turn and he loved it as well. 
 We spend the entire evening sewing. I would thread the needle (or PIN as she calls it). I would also do all the knots. She did the rest.
 They worked together so nicely. No fighting. Only supporting each other.

 Mommy, take more pictures!! She was so happy to be doing this craft

I'm so glad we spent the evening sewing together. It was a bonding moment. She really was proud of herself...and I'm proud of her too!

Super Angie...Super Halloween

Sadly, no pic of Dallin. Halloween was so fun this year. Our ward had a great party inwhich we invited sooo many people. It was awesome. We had a chili cook off (I actually made some Chili), had a cake walk, costume contest (Rick and I won for best couple! lol), and then my cubscouts helped do some games- ball toss etc.  We had soo much fun.

Then on Halloween, Rick and I went to the elementary school and helped in Brennan's class and Tanith's. They just love having us come. Dallin went trick or treating with his friends and Rick and I took Tan and Bren to Frisco main street. I am HOOKED on Main street. Sooo fun. All the local businesses had their doors open and were handing out candy. Even a church on Mainstreet handed out candy, hot chocolate AND Bibles! The kids were sooo excited  to get little bibles. :) It was FREEZING though. Like 20 degrees and snowing. Windy too. But man, we had such a great time. :)

Super Angie...Super Alexa

Last week I had the opportunity to meet one of my favorite skaters, Alexa Scimeca. :)

Super Angie...Christmas in November

Yesterday Tan asked if we could set up the Christmas tree. And I thought hey why not. So I let the kids decorate it, which they loved.  And ever since we been listening to christmas music and spending more time together in the living room. I really love it. Tan likes to lay under the tree, like Lucy. :)

Super Angie.. Primary

Today was the primary program at church. Brennan and tan were in it. I'm so proud of them. Brennan had to write two talks to give during the program. Tan played the bells during one of the songs. Brennan waved a German flag and Tanith waved a Polish flag during one of the songs. I really enjoyed the primary program because the primary here is so small it made it so personalable.

1 thing I really like it was a few of the kids came up and said something like this: I'm a basketball player. I'm in artist. I'm a cyclist. But most of all I am a child of god.

I really love our ward. Its small but I feel like everyone is genuinely happy to see everyone else.

Super Angie...Amazing Cameraman Brennan

 We went to the Cliff Dwellings in Manitou Springs and were suprised to see the wolf rescue there. Brennan had a lot of fun taking most of these pics.

Super Angie... Tommy D

 We got wind of Tommy D signing autographs at Copper Mountain, so we jumped in the car and drove up there.
 He loved Tan's polka dot shirt.

 And of course Brennan was in HEAVEN!!

 What a great guy. So friendly.

Super Angie... Brennan's Birthday

 Brennan had been talking daily, for weeks. He had a count down going until he turned 10.  The morning of his birthday turned out perfect. Actually, everything about his 10th birthday was perfect. He even exclaimed several times "THIS IS THE BEST BIRTHDAY EVER!"

 hugs to his sister

 He said he wanted an Ugly doll. I thought , "um, where am I gonna find one of those around here?" and then I walked into a t-shirt shop and BAM! Ugly dolls! He was excited to get this one called ICE BAT.
 Of course pokemon cards. Can never have too many
his favorite gift...his set of three star fish.

I love this little guy. He is always making us laugh. His smile is infectious and he has such a strong testimony. Happy Birthday Big Bear!! Love, Mama

Super New

A lot has been happening recently. School started, Rick  went to Russia, Brennan turned 10. We've had homework. We've had housework. We've had beautiful weather. We've had snow.
Currently right now we're making some big changes. Changes are scary aren't they? But when you know it's right it doesn't make it easier but it makes it worth it.

Super Angie...bye bye concussion

Well I'm happy to report that it has now been four weeks since my collision that caused my concussion and I am basically symptom free. This week I have returned to be a pretty regular skating schedule. I've had a few headaches but I think they're more muscular skeletal instead of brain caused. So I have been seeing my chiropractor.

Things that really helped me heal are: resting, sleeping, staying off of Facebook and electronics and Rick also took the kids to Utah for a full week. This helped a lot.

Drinking cola also helped with the headaches although the extra calories sure didn't help my diet. Haha

So glad to be "back"!

Super Angie...sunday movie

I asked the kids to find a movie to watch tonight. Tanith found this one. Dallin got excited and said this was one of his favorite movies when he was little. Its such a joy to watch all three of them enjoying this movie about a dog and a cat. My kids simply love animals and nature.

Super Angie... Keystone Stables

Yesterday we allowed Brennan and Tan to ride their bike down to the stables. I was nervous but hoping for the best. then my dad and I drove down to follow them and I enjoyed watching them feed the horses. Those ponies and horses were so friendly and so happy to be having so much attention. I just wish I wasn't  allergic.
The kids fed them granola bars and carrots

Super Angie...Super muddy

Tan went out for a bike ride and came home very muddy

Super Angie...Super Pop

It was so nice having my dad come to visit
