I thought I'd share my video of the darling Mackenzie so you could see her facial expressions and all that hair! Sorry my camera doesn't stay in focus very well, but you'll live. ;) She is such a sweet tender little thing and you just want to soak up her sweet spirit.
And how 'bout a standing ovation for that mom of hers that blessed us with this special spirit. Now that morning sickness, blemishes, lack of clothes, discomfort, constant hunger, lack of sleep, swelling and rips and cracks in all the wrong places are over, enjoy this little blessing strait from Heavenly Fathers arms to yours- lay on your belly and get reacquainted with your feet. :0) You did good.
And what is Mackenzie without a bit of Adrian? Here's to the new proud papa who helped the last nine months with anything, anytime and anywhere to lessen the burden for Britt. They make a pretty good team. And after a crash course with my rugrats I'm confident in his newly formed parenting ability, patience and lack of fear for holding newborns. Just wait for your crash course on teenagers! See you in 7 years or so. ;) I'm happy for you!!
Lots of love to you all!

Marlee went in for her four month checkup today and she is at 15 pounds 12 ounces, 26 inches long and in the top 95%. So in other words a Foster through and through;-) She eats soooooooo much that the Doctor told them to start her on a small amount of cereal at night. She is already trying to roll over and gets to her side and thinks this is to much work and then goes back on her back to rest before she starts it all over again.

The musical went extremely well. Though, if you didn't get a chance, you should definitely read the blog post about it. We had quite the accident the last night. But all is well now. We just competed yesterday in our region one-act competition. The kids did great but unfortunately we didn't make it to state. That's probably a good thing though. We have region individual events next Wednesday, but I'm thinking the sub may have to take my students as I may be in the hospital or just getting home. We took a tour of the maternity ward where we're delivering last night and we like it a lot. It's nice and small and the rooms are very nice. Plus we get to stay in the same room for everything. Adrian's excited because all the rooms have DVD players and cable. He can introduce Mackenzie to sports right from the start.
Well I think that's about all that's going on. We're just sitting and waiting....
As if that wasn't enough, she has a big paper due on Friday and her computer crashed. She will be having to do the her huge paper at the school on one of the computers.
For Eva it seems like when it rains it pours.

Megan gave me a beautiful necklace that she bought from the POPS store with the POPS money she had earned at school. She also made a wonderful homemade card out of glitter glue.
Isabella also made me a card of her and grandma. What talented grandkids.
Deardens sent out their presents. I now have pictures of the Deardens on the mouse pad for my computer. I love it. Sarah also gave me a Pampered Chef meat spatula to break up hamburger.
Rebecca displayed her talents again by making new towles for the stove in the shape of dresses. Also gave me new PJ's to get rid of the ugly old red ones.
Also I enjoyed Mary and Ashley's gas card, Charley's german sausage, the Martinez family Sysco steaks, Grandmas movie of Emma, a nut chopper. and body wash and Eva and Jerry's singing card. Mary made my favorite sugar free cake and I loved it. Ate too much, but loved it.

Ashley is SOOOOOOOO awesome she now knows Italian or at lest one song in Italian. She had her solo ensemble in Adams today. She had one for band & three for choir. The video is of her Italian solo that she placed 1st with. She also placed 1st in her band duet & in her choir duet with her friend Brook & got a 2nd in the double choir duet. Lots of people came to support her today her Mom, Terry, Becca & Megan, Grandpa & Grandma Foster and Nana and we had lots from church and her friends. So she was in good company to say the least. Thank you all for coming and supporting my kid:-) to the rest of you WHAT'S YOUR PROBLEM!!!!!!;-)

Today my friend Rene's divorce is final. It's a really hard time for her, I wish I could be there for her, so if you see her give her a big hug from me. She is actually coming out to see me on the 18th-23rd. She needs a vacation. She wanted to go down to Vegas, so she got the room and I got us tickets to see Circ du Solie (spelling?) so I get a vacation too- which is much needed sinced I'm basically a single mom lately and I could use a couple of days to breath.
Richard has been working more on our (soon to be) new Tahoe. He has to do all the bodywork on the front end. It will be my first non-90's vehicle EVER (an '02.....still seven years old, but whatta ya do?), and he is promising that I can have it in my name so they can't sell it out from under me (like every other vehicle I've had), so we'll see.
Ria is talking tons more in the past few weeks, and even says 3 word sentences. She's now learned to turn door knobs and escape from nap time, and has learned all about hitting (love those good teachers she has). Most of the time she goes poopoo on the toilet, but in her diaper for the rest. She hasn't quite found all of her balance yet- the search goes on. :)
Coi is a hormonal, emotional roller coaster, grrr. She always runs off to pout if she doesn't get her way (I know- reminds you of me), which is often, and I've learned more patients from her than the other 2 put together. She loves doing yoga with me every night though, and could be hugged and snuggled the whole day long. Her favorite thing is for me to tell her stories about me as a kid, about her as a baby or ones I make up about her.
Ean goes up and down with his behavior at school, and when he's home he's either doing home work, his chore (unloading dishwasher) or playing Transformers. By that time of day he usually needs to have some personal space and wants to play by himself. He's really been enjoying the Book of Mormon and is fascinated by the wars and how they just never learn! We are in Helaman right now. Of course I have to stop and explain words, or paraphrase what's happening sometimes, but he remembers it all. He doesn't like the Gadianton robbers :) .
This whole week Kami has been gone and I actually got up every morning by myself and went to work out. I'm pretty proud cuz usually if no one is waiting for me I don't have motivation to do it so, yay me!! And I did get Melaleuca products that Amanda is advertising for, and so far so good! I haven't tried the cleaning products yet, I'm waiting for Richard to be home so I don't have to worry about kids getting in the way. But their lotion healed up my severely dried and cracked skin in 2 days, their exfoliating soap is the best ever and yummy, yummy food stuff. Oh and the tooth polish is great too, and their mouthwash doesn't burn at all, I could keep it in my mouth all day. Way to know your stuff 'Manda! ;)
By the way, Crystal has mono, which with being 6 months pregnant isn't bad enough, it has made her liver and spleen swell making her have blood clots, which have more than likely gone to her lungs. She has a cat scan scheduled to find out for sure, so keep her in your prayers.
Well, I love you all, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY (again) to you Mama- party hardy!
