Here's a short wrap up on what's new with our little Gray family. Shuga has yet to loose any of her teeth which she should be by now...but we think that she is done growing and next month she is getting her baby makers ripped out :( but on the bright side she is just about all the way potty trained. Scott is working for D.P. (a construction company our of Seattle) with the Old man (my father-in-law) and while I wouldn't say he's loving it...it's keeping food on the table and paying for my nursing classes. I'm starting my CNA classes tomorrow in downtown Tacoma (and by downtown I mean like the heart of downtown in the ghetto)I am scared out of my mind but I hope that everything will be ok. When I went to sign up for my classes I saw more, bums, blacks and drug use then I have seen in my whole 20 years of life and I was kind of scared to be walking around alone. Just imagine the whitest little Mormon girl you know wandering around lost in the big city! At least I'm not blond anymore...maybe that will help? Now no one laugh but I bought a can of pepper spray and hooked it to my keys. I hope that I'm not tempting fate by doing so because I would hate to have that thing go off while I'm driving or something...haha Scott and I also took a new big step in our marriage and bought...no not marriage counseling...but a new car.(and by new, I mean new to us) It's an Acura TL. I love it! I told Scott that it's "our car" but that I own like 60% and he owns 40% while we still haven't agreed to the whole 60-40 ratio yet, I'm sure he'll come around. Online classes are kicking my butt and I hope that with my CNA classes beginning that I'll have the energy, time and motivation to keep up with all of my homework. I'm sort of half way regretting taking 15 credits online and starting CNA classes but what can ya do?
I also regret to inform you all ( all three of you who read this) that I've found a awful addiction a horrible habit and yes a mindless money waster...I've started to Scrapbook...now before any of you un-friend me on facebook (heaven forbid) or before anyone laughs too much just know that I kind of like it. Am I any good? No,not really I'm sure that there are a lot of people who are a lot better, but I find that it's a good way to preserve some memories and use the some of the billions of pictures that I tend to take...Well that's what's new in our neck of the woods....tune in next month ;)Some scrapbooking pictures soon to come!

Now I know that this is kind of an over kill on the pictures but I just loved loved loved going to the tulip festival! It was so amazing and reminded me of my Mommy. Mom one day I will bring you here! It was a perfect day, the sun was out I was with the people I love and the flowers were beautiful!

To whom it may concern

For the record I have been taking way too many lovely pictures lately and I planned on blogging them yesterday (sunday) with a brief blah blah blah about what I've been up to (other than no good) and as I went to upload my photos...there wasn't a camera cord in sight. No camera cord+grumpy kirsten= no blog up date. Sorry.

In other news...My wonderfully crazy sister-in-law gave me there old Wii because they have an x-box and a PS3 and they never use the Wii which she won at a work party a few years back...so I inherited it! Hooray!It came with a few games and two controllers but what I really needed/mostly wanted was ZUMBA. So I got online and bought it, along with the fitness belt. Here is a picture of the game and the hot belt that must be worn while working out. Insert mental image of my wearing said belt here [ ]...awesome I know :) So I hope to be dancing my butt off...literally lol wish me luck! And hopefuly in a few months time my abs will have returned from their winter hibernation and I will glisten like the dancer on the font of the game...until then I MUST DANCE!
