J turns 13 (teenager... YIKES)

So for Birthdays at our house, the Birthday kid gets to pick dinner... go out or what we cook at home. J wanted sizzler tonight, so off we go...
I let the waitress know it was J's 13th birthday, and she brought him this HUGE root beer float. Both mom and I grabbed out spoon too, so that we could help.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY KIDDO! Its been an awesome ride so far...
so I'm back from Vegas, and back to work and reality.
I had a BLAST! I got to see Hoover Dam, it was amazing. I got to see a show (Cirque du Soleil) at Treasure Island. can i say, WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW.. I'm dying to see another one already.
Did some shopping, site seeing, and very little gambling ( I just threw what I did gamble into the machines anyways)

I do have some pictures, but they are still on the camera currently, so I will post more when I get them onto my computer.

J is a Big 13 today... He comes home from Gpa and Gmas this afternoon.
will update more later...

Friends, Family and Turkey Day

Well J is off visiting his Grandparents and many other family members. I hear they talked him into a "short" haircut, and Grandma says he looks very handsome. I havent heard from him, however when he goes to Grandma and Grandpas I dont usually hear anything until just before he comes home.
I leave bright and early tomorrow morning for Vegas... I will get to spend time with a dear friend and her family, as well as Don.

I wish you all a very wonderful Turkey day, and may there be NO family fights (food fights included)...around your table this year.

light at the end of the tunnel....

So I left you all hanging telling you about my soon to be Teenager, and the mischeif he has been up to...
He is officially ungrounded now. He has taken it well, earned most of the money that I was requiring him to earn, and got LOTS done around the house and yard.
He is back in school after a 10 day suspension, and has caught back up with his work.
Life is starting to be good again.

Jason turns 13 on December 1st, and if this past month is any indication of his teen years... I"M NOT READY... I dont want to do it, you cant make me :) ha ha, its coming faster than I am ready for.
He wants to have his three closest friends over on the 6th and they want to go tubing in Park City, which just sounds COLD to me.

Jason leaves for Grandpa and Grandma's house on Monday night, for a little thanksgiving break with them. I think we both need a vacation!

more to come....

what a week and a half this has been!

so I get a phone call from a Granite school district officer...detective Lakes.
Jason's been named in the vandelism of a bike. 1st thought= I'm going to kill him!
2nd thought="I'M GOING TO KILL HIM"

so we go in and meet with the pricipal and detective, Jason admits to taking part of taking bike pegs, but did not take part in slashing a bike tire...
okay, so we are sent on our way, Jason still in school, I go back to work. (deep breath)
Jason is in big trouble, I take his bike away, take his pegs away, he is grounded for the long UEA weekend....he is facing charges

**fast forward a week***
I get a call from the same Granite school district office.... Jason has been named in a scooter vandelism... "WHAT"
so I got back to the school, and evidently the look on my face says that he is in BIG trouble.
Jason admits to cutting the brake line of this electric scooter with a lettermans tool of my dads.
He is suspended pending a school district hearing, and is facing bigger charges

heard from the school district today: they are suspending him for 10 days, and he can go back on November 6th. he also has to sign a saftey contract saying that he wont do this crap anymore...

oh he is in BIG trouble here at home......

bad grades= no wrestling

This is an update from a week or so ago........

well, grades slipped (he didnt turn in homework) so I took wrestling away until that goes up.
mean mom, mean mom......

Jr high is hard work

My young man has joined the wrestling team. They have practices every day after school for 2 hours. he has to Run, lift weights, run, learn moves, run... (lots of running). he comes home as if he has gone all day without food, eats everything in sight plus dinner. then crashes on the couch and falls asleep. I have tried for the last 30 mintues to wake him up for scouts, but he just said, I'm not going and fell back asleep. poor guy.

with all of that, he has to keep his grades up or mean old mom, I mean the school wont let him play.

then on top of all that today, he had to bring home school pictures and let mom gush all over them, then emailed them to everyone she could think of. :)

wanna see?

Isnt he handsome???

I'm finally giving in, starting a blog. What has the world come to.
We are a month into the great world of Jr. High, and J is loving it. His grades are up, He has signed up for Wrestling, and we are starting Sylvan Learning Center.
This isn't including the time he spends with his family (HA HA HA ) I mean his friends, and the time we both spend at the Empress Theatre (

so join us as I try documenting this fabulous trip we call life. I have a feeling that its about to get entertaining.
