So it is now the end of the week and it has been a really bad last couple of weeks. Now it is Thursday and the end of the week and it is starting to look really good. The boys are both napping, this is Jimmy's friday and then on Saturday morning we are going to go to the farmers market downtown and do something fun with the boys. It looks like its going to be a great weekend. Ever since we have changed the way we eat and the activities with the boys they have been so good. Xander has changed into a normal, sweet, patient, obedient, loving little boy and big brother. I finally remember the way he used to be and remember all the patience and love that I used to have. I feel like a good mommy again. We are looking forward to Maddys 2nd birthday party and starting to potty train both of the boys. I think we are going to have a big change and train both at once. They work really well together and everything that Xander does Maddy wants to follow. So I figure "Why Not? Kill 2 birds with 1 stone." 2 for the price of 1 is always a good deal right?
I also just wanted to say thank you to our family and the help that they have given us even though we technically are not family. We have been loved and treated like family and even better then some of our family. We love you our FAMILY. Grandma, Grandpa, and Auntie Shawnee and of course our Lily boo. Thank you and we love you.

Okay so I dont know why (well I do) but Jimmy has now started us on this kick of eating healthy. We are now on the Whole Foods Diet. So the other day we had fruit for breakfast and had Whole Foods for lunch and it was amazing. First of all the food was really really good ( a little pricey) but good. We went to the park to eat and the kids ran around and had a blast. Their lunch was all organic and it was a peanut butter and jelly, animal crackers, an apple sauce, and an apple juice. They loved it and for the rest of the day Xander was amazing. It was a miracle. We had a great day, he was wonderful, he didnt even have to get after him once. I loved it. For the first time in a really really long time that I saw my Xander. He was patient, he listened, he was holding still, being nice to Maddy I loved it. So now after the good foods and not having anything with high fructose corn syrup, no dye or anything I will never let him have anything with any of that again. So now, even though its a little bit more expensive (and we do now finally get a discount) we are going to be smart, set a good example, and get on a good diet and get into shape. We are wanting to do anything we can to help Xander and Maddy with everything and diet and groceries are nothing compared to the behavior problem. So we will see how things work and if they really are better or if its just a fluke. Wish us luck.................

So Jimmy starts his new job tomorrow with Whole Foods and we are all so excited. He is anxious to be able to finally have something to do with hiss time again (he is not like mommy and okay with staying home). He will finally feel like he is useful again (his words not mine). I am excited for him to feel like he is part of a team again and like he has a purpose other then just "Father of the Year". He start tomorrow and has orientation for the next 3 days then starts work on Sunday. After a much needed trip to talk with our old bishop I a feeling much better about our current situation and how things are needing to work from here on out. I think we are on the way to closing the situation for now and I feel like it will be good to get some things off my mind. I need to get back to the place I was in before we moved the first time. I was feeling good about myself, I was a committed parent and wife and I wanted more then anything to get into shape. I need to find something to do with my time that's constructive. If anyone hears of anything please let me know.......Until then only time will tell. Oh and good luck Daddy on the new Job we love you and are so proud of you. ;D
