Just wanted to let you all know my sister is going to be on Oprah this Monday!! Her husband wrote a letter to Oprah when she found out she was pregnant with her second set of twins...5 boys under the age of 4!! He said that she needed a sanctuary, a place to call her own...etc... So on their anniversary Oprah's crew came to her house, woke her up, got her out of bed, and made-over her bedroom!! It looks so awesome!! So you have to watch!!

Okay...so my friend Dawn asked me to go to Chicago with her for an outdoor volleyball tournament. It's the biggest outdoor volleyball tournament in the midwest. So we fly out there on a friday night, leave Utah at 1pm, fly to Phoenix...our flight gets delayed for 3 hours...and we finally get into Chicago at 11:30 pm. It was pouring rain when we got there...and kept raining and raining the entire time we were there. We show up to the volleyball tournament anyway...hoping we could somehow still play. There was like a foot of standing water on the grass where our court was. It was insane! There was even a tornado watch...so they cancelled the tournament. :( They gave us credit for next years tournament...so we will have to win it next year haha... :) We still had fun at the after party Luau and met a lot of cool people!
We were supposed to be on the featured court...in front of where the food was...where everyone could watch us play... Look how much water was on our court!
Even the nets were sagging from all the rain...
I swear the water almost came into our car when we were driving! So many roads were closed from the streams running over.
Dawn & Kim
Kim, Phil, & Dawn!

Congratulations Tyler & Jamie!! He is the cutest baby ever!! Alexander makes 8 nephews and 1 niece for Curtis and I....and another niece on the way (from Mitch and Jill) :)
Olivia and Alexander...she is going to be a GREAT big sister! :)
Olivia, Alexander, and Drew! Too cute!!
Curtis was kind of nervous to hold him because he was so new and fragile...but he did great! :)
I had to do an assignment for class where I take 30 people's vital signs...blood pressure, pulse rate, heart rate, temperature...etc. Steven, Luke, and Cody thought it was the coolest thing ever that I had what the doctor's had. They wanted to be "Doctor" too... It was the cutest thing ever! I love being an Aunt! :)
I told Steven to put the stethoscope on Lukie's heart and this is where he put it :)
And then Luke copied... :)
We finally added some color to our bedroom! 7 hours later....it was finished. I NEVER expected it to take that long...but with taping everything off...1st coat...then 2nd coat...it took FOREVER :) But it looks good. It's a little too dark, but oh well :) Now we just need to upgrade the furniture :) I think there's some rule that when you have been married for over two years you have to go buy a bed set and actually decorate your bedroom :)
