So I am officially a bad blogger. I have so many cute pics that I want everyone to see from the beach, but I just haven't been motivated enough to do anything with them. The Friday before we went to the beach, Dax had his 9 month check up. He weighed 20 pounds and .05 ounces. Dax became extremely attached during our vacation. I mean no one could do anything for him except for me. It was a little difficult today at day care....I tried to hand him off and his little legs and arms just wrapped around me. Lani was so excited to get back to school. She gave me a quick kiss and was off to play with her friends. When I got back to work today ~ I had so much to do, but was very unmotivated with that to. I really think I need a vacation from my vacation. Well when I get there, my computer wouldnt' work and I hopped from desk to desk using everyone else's computer's. Blah....I hate Monday's....

While we were watching the Olympics tonight, Lani decided that the swimmers are mermaids. Lani got so excited and started singing - "Go Mermaids Go." She also has started singing "I'm sqooshing up a baby bumble bee-want my mommy be so proud of me. Then she looks at her hands and says "Eww-Yucky" She only sings this song 50 times a day! This evening while she was in the bathtub, some yucky stuff came out of one of her rubber ducks. We didn't squeezy the water out good enough I guess...So that duck is now in the trash can. Anyways, Lani jumped up and said - I have to get out a worm is chasing me.

I think this is so cute of Troy
Well this weekend we decided to slow down a little and it was great. Friday night we didn't do anything but get in our Pj's and sit around watching the Olympics. Lani was so funny...I made the comment...Oh that's Kenya...talking about the country...Well Lani thought I was talking about "Kenya" and got excited. She was like, I see Kenya on TV ~ Yay. I tried explaining to her that Kenya was at home and not on TV and she was a little confused, but I guess that was my fault. Saturday - Me, mom, Lani and Emily headed to Commerce...We found lots of deals - of course Lani and Dax racked up the most, but that's ok. Saturday night, The Brucke's came over for a while. Lani, Dax and Troy had fun riding in the wagon. It is so fun watching them all play together. I fix a plate of Nilla Wafers for Lani and Troy. Well Lani still has trouble sharing at times. Well Troy would chase her and grab a few cookies, she would get them back and the cycle would repeat itself. I probably should have made another plate, but it was too much fun watching them. On Sunday we went to church - Jarod taught Sunday School for the first time, and for some reason, he was extremely nervous! We also went and had dinner at Rick's house and it was yummy. Ok well I hope everyone has a great week ~ Ansley

Happy Anniversary to us. For all of you have no clue how me and J ended up together..well I'll fill you in. In April 1997 ~ I started working at Outback Steakhouse...About 2 weeks later, J~is a new bus boy...For some odd reason I thought he had been to my house before, so I asked.."Have you been to my house before?" He looked at me like I was crazy, but I really thought he came with someone I knew. Anyways, we became great friend (for a while anyways). :) Well J~asked me on a date..It was a great date...He took me to Kanpai in Greenville, then we went to see the movie Hope Floats...Well a few days later, I went to the lake with his family. Well in high school, I wasn't that interested in having a boyfriend, I just wanted to date and meet people. So I knew he was about to ask me to be his girlfriend - and I talked him out of asking me. We would talk on the phone every single night until about 2 in the morning....J~Knew everything about me! Well, we also went through a time when we didnt' speak to each other, but I don't remeber why. Well ~ When we became friends again, we decided to go work at the YMCA. Well, while the kids were sleeping, we decided to play Monopoly. Well I was winning and J was jealous and I was rubbing it in, so he pushed the game in the floor and we didn't speak for 6 months!! He absolutely hated me!!! He even told people how much he hated me!!! There's a lot more to the "hate" story, but I won't even bring all that up. Well we had talked a few times, but nothing like the past. Well when my dad dies, J~came to the funeral home and it meant so much to me. I think the guy I was actually dating at the time could even tell how much Jarod coming meant to me. So I break up with that guy and became great friends with J again. We even really kissed at this party we went to. Then out of no where he puts this guy on the phone that he worked with and I ended up dating him. Well before that ~ I sent Jarod this email saying that I liked him and all this stuff, but he didn't even respond. He says I confused him. Well I was coaching cheerleading at Pendleton and he started Coaching football. Well of course everyone talked about us and everyone thought we were together, and we spent the majority of the time trying to explain our friendship. So after a game one night we went out with some of the other coaches. Well when he dropped me off at my car we sat there and talked for like 30 minutes...Finally I was like...so are you going to kiss me...and he did. Well then we had our 2nd first date. We dated a year, were engaged for 11 months and got married August 7, 2004. Eight months later we were pregnant with Lani and 2 weeks after she turned one...we were pregnant with Dax!! I guess I always knew we were going to be together, it just happened when it was suppose to. There's a lot more I could add, but I won't waste everyone time. But I really have an awesome husband, who loves me a bunches. Jarod is a great dad and I am so glad we decided to share our lives together.
