So much to catch up on.

So I was doing freakin fantastic with the losing weight ordeal. When Albert goes and knocks me up again. To those who get offended by my use of "knock" so sorry. So right now I am 14 weeks pregnant. Naturally I hoping for a girl yet I would love to not have to buy much if its a boy. Not to mention I can quote Laura Smartt and say " Only tough women have all boys" That was my shout out to Laura and Jenny.-Bueno estaba haciendo muy bien con mi meta de perder peso cuando Albert me embarazo otra vez. Entonces tengo 14 semanas de embarazo. Naturalmente estoy esperando la nina pero a la vez me encantaria no tener que comprar nada si sale hombre. Tambien escuche de una amiga que solo las mujeres fuertes tienen solo hombres.
Our Dog Bella just gave birth to 7 beautiful little puppies. After the first 6 were born male, I just figured it wasn't in the cards to have another female in the house. Then the last most beautiful was born a girl. Bella getting knocked up herself was a shock b/c her previous owner told us she was nope. Nuestro Pero, Bela acaba de sacar a luz 7 cachoros hermosos. Los primeros 6 eran machos, y pense que asi es mi suerte de no tener ni una nina en la casa, cuando nacio la mas hermosa hembra.
Albert is doing great; Bringing home the bacon, making me laugh, and always playing around with the boys. He just finished his season of soccer. And he was Benji's soccer coach; a job he had been waiting for since Benji was born. He did awesome! - Albert esta haciendo muy bien, traiendo la plata a la casa, haciendo me reir, y siempre jugando con los chicos. Se acabo su temporada de futbol y era el entrenador del equipo de Benji, un trabajo que estaba esperando desde que nacio Benji.
Benji also played his first season of Soccer. He did so good. He was the 2nd highest scorer. The 1st was a boy who had played 3 seasons already. Funny though, Benji got into a fight his very first game. Like mother like son. He also started Pre-school at Gibbs and absolutely love it. --Benji tambien jugo su primer temporada de futbol. Hizo muy bien . El era segundo de hacer lo mas goles, el primero era un chico quien jugo 3 temporadas pasadas. Historia chistoso, el primer partido de Benji, el se peleaba. Igualito a la mama. Tambien comenzo prescolar en la Escuela de Gibbs, y le encanta
Sammy and I get more mommy/Sammy time and we love it. He loves to sit on my lap and hold my ears. He will also follow me all around the house until Benji gets home and then he follows him. Sammy loves to dance and actually has his own special steps. I call him my little survivor b/c he's had to survive the meningitis, then my stupidity. ( I locked him and my keys in my car in 95 degree weather.) --Sammy y yo tenemos mas tiempo juntos y nos encanta. El le gusta sentarse en mi falda y agarrar mis orejas. Me persigue a todos lados de la casa hasta que llega Benji y comiensa persiguirle a el. Sammy le encanta Bailar y tiene su propio pasito. Lo llamo mi luchador porque tuvo que sobrevivir el menengitis al nacer y despues mi estupides cuando lo hecho llave al auto con el y los llaves adentro cuando estaba calientisima afuera.
I got chastised by my brother-in-law Mauricio for not keeping this up to date. He just came home from his mission and wanted to get up to date on the family. We are so proud of you Mauro! We are also very proud of my sister-in-law Susana who came in 2nd place in the Santa Cruze Marathon. Good Job Susi! --Me reprocho mi cunado Mauricio por no tener esta actualizado. Acaba de llegar de su Mission y queria leer sobre la familia. Estamos muy orgullosos de voj, Mauro! Tambien estamos muy orgullosos de me Cunada Susana quien gano segundo lugar en el maraton de Santa Cruz. Bien Hecho, Susi!
And thats about it! y Esto es todo!

Confessions Part 2

So I think I have been doing pretty good since my last post. I have held my self responsible. I am now at 239.8 so things are going down. I also found a great website that helps and is free. It's It's like the facebook of weightloss. It has helped a lot. I have also been hitting the gym pretty hard too. I LOVE ZUMBA!!! I told Albert that when I get to my goal weight I am celebrating by becoming a zumba instructor.
Funny story from the gym.....I normally go to work out in the morning and in the weight room there were about 4 highschool boys. They were there everyday. It made me think about my boys when they become that age. What was so funny about them was that they would pump weights for a minute and a half then stand there and look at themselves in the mirror for 3 minutes. As if doing 20 reps is going to make a difference.

I weigh 245 lbs. I'm a freakin wreck. I have let myself go so bad. Sure, I have my excuses why I let myself get that way. But I'm tired of the excuses, I'm tired of being tired and it needs to stop. Now if you read this I hope you would leave me a little dignity and not tell the world how much I weigh. I'm putting this out there in hopes to make my self responsible to more people than just me.
Albert and I were going to start trying to get pregnant again. I've told myself "after I have this last baby I will finally dedicate myself to getting back in shape." I had a self realization that that was just another stupid excuse. Even though we are planning 1 or 2 more babies in the future I realized I would be a bad mom to let my babies live inside an unhealthy body.
So here is my long and short term goal.....loose 2 lbs a week, to get down to my goal weight of 145 lbs. in a year.
Tips, advice, support, and healthy recipes welcome.

Opening a can of worms- Arizona Immigration law

So I am sure all of have heard of the immigration laws in Arizona and the protests they are causing. This post is not intended to offend anyone it's just to see what others are thinking on the subject.
I am an avid believer that the immigration laws need to be reformed, just in a different way. Most of you know that Albert is a legal resident Alien in this country. To get his visa we did everything the government asked us too. To me it was way to much. I believe that in order for someone to legally enter this country they have to go through extensive background checks....but that's it. Between the forms we had to file, the fees we had to pay and the 2 36 hour bus trips to La paz we spent over $1000 to get here. Most immigrants who come here, come b/c they need the money. They wouldn't have the money to get here the lawful way. That's just one of the many changes needed to be made.
Let them come legally so they can be tax payers. Most of you might think, well they are just paying for the welfare they are using....not true if they are legal resident. Albert cannot receive welfare as long as he is just a resident.
My major problem with illegal immigrants are only with the bad ones. The ones who get drunk, cause problems, and never get punished for their actions. Those are the only ones we need to keep out. I saw this on a news sight and thought I'd share it.......
If you cross the North Korean border illegally you get 12 years hard
If you cross the Iranian border illegally you are detained indefinitely.
If you cross the Afghan border illegally, you get shot.
If you cross the Saudi Arabian border illegally you will be jailed.
If you cross the Chinese border illegally you may never be heard from
If you cross the Venezuelan border illegally you will be branded a spy
and your fate will be sealed.
If you cross the Mexican borders illegally you will jailed for two years.
If you cross the Cuban border illegally you will be thrown into political
prison to rot.
If you cross the United States border illegally you get:
1 - A job
2 - A driver's license
3 - A Social Security card
4 - Welfare
5 - Food stamps
6 - Credit cards
7 - Subsidized rent or a loan to buy a house
8 - Free education
9 - Free health care
10 - A lobbyist in Washington
11 - Billions of dollars in public documents printed in your language
12 - Millions of servicemen and women who are willing to - and do - die
for your right to the ways and means of our constitution
13 - And the right to carry the flag of your country - the one you walked
out on - while you call America racist and protest that you don't get
enough respect

What are your thoughts?

Brothers and Best Friends

Benji and Sammy have the best brother relationship. They play great together and fight well together as well. Ever since Sammy was born I could see really easy how Benji feels about his little brother. He plays with him, keeps him away from things that could hurt him, etc. Recently Benji is an avid teacher to Sammy of 2 things...1. Benji is determined that Sammy starts walking. He'll pick him up by the hands and help him walk around the room. 2. Benji is also adamant that Sammy learns how to play fight. Which makes me a little edgy but Sammy absolutely loves. As far as Sammy goes, Benji wears his heart on his sleeve.
Then there is Sammy's feeling toward Benji. Normally we see Sammy following his big brother all around the house. Sammy loves to take Benji's toys which causes a fight. Sammy being the one who usually wins b/c Benji doesn't have the heart to hurt him. Sammy doesn't show much affection toward Benji at all....At least not while anyone is looking. I realized just how much Sammy cares for Benji the other morning. After Albert left for work, Benji crawled into my bed where Sammy was already sleeping and fell back to sleep himself. About an hour later Sammy woke up. He saw Benji asleep. He then layed his head on Benji's for a little while then started giving him kisses on his cheek. Then he layed down and put his arm around his big brother and waited for him to wake up. They are so sweet together and such a blessing to have in our lives.

Utah Trip Day 2

I wanted to upload the picture of us in front of this painting, oh well. This is in the conference center and is huge

In Park City.

In the swimming pool at my parents hotel.
On Wednesday, I started my day by going to the Jordan River Temple early in the morning to do initiatories for some ancestors. That Temple was a block away from where we were staying. Then we all headed out to Temple square. We were so excited to see the temple. We took a tour of the conference center. I wasn't expecting to feel such a wonderful spirit there. Yet, it was all I could do to keep from crying.
Next we went to the Beehive house then to the tabernacle. After that we went to the visitors center. The Cristus was amazing. They played a presentation that got me thinking a lotout how I can improve on keeping the commandments.
After that Christopher Rees, Albert's trainer from the mission, took us to Park City. It was so cold but an awesome littleTwn. We ate the best pizza ever at Banjo Pizza.
To end our night, we went swimming at my parents hotel, Little America, in Downtown Salt Lake. It was an awesome pool and jacuzzi. The water was warm like bath water so it was even enjoyable for Sammy. He loves the water
