4 Months...

Well my little girl is 4 months!! Wow.. where did the time go??

This is where Anisten sits while I get ready! The sink.. its perfect size!

Here are some things about Anisten right now...

Not sure on the stats.. we had to miss your 4 and 6 months doctor appointments due to the move!
You LOVE being held. The second you get put down you start to cry.
(Although you do love your toy where you lay on your back and swat at your toys!)
You still won't drink from a bottle.
You love trying to grab at my crochet hook.
You have a fake cry-half squeal you just started which is adorable!
You are still really petite..
You will smile on command :) and its really contagious!
You LOVE your older sister! You smile whenever she's around!
Getting your bum changed is your favorite parts of the day!
You have started waking up twice a night which is killing your mama!
You would chew on my thumb all day if I let you..
We tried rice cereal for the first time last week and you liked it the first time..not the second or third time though!
You are still on Prevacid for Acid Reflux, but seem to be doing much better!
You still have HAIR!!
You LOVE LOVE LOVE to be wrapped up super tight in blankies and be snuggled.
You get told all the time that you look just like your daddy! (Same with Emery!)

We sure love having this little girl in our family. I honestly can't remember life without her.. We LOVE you Anisten!

U a fan of Wingers??

Then this post is for YOU!! So.. out here in Minnesota, they don't have Wingers. I've gotta say, that is by FAR my most favorite restaurant in the world. So when we have moved in Summers past, it is one of the things I miss most. Well.. my dad told me a secret. Are you ready for it?? **How to MAKE your own Wingers sauce.** We had it for dinner last night and I've gotta say, you will be happily suprised :) So here's what you gotta do if ya want your own "FIX" and you aren't near one. (And for those of you who don't know what Wingers is?? I am terrible sorry! You're missing out on something REAL good!)

Buy yourself a bottle of Franks Red Hot sauce. No other substitutes will work!
And a bag of brown sugar! Yes, thats it. 2 ingredients :) Thats MY kind of recipe!

Now decide how much you want to make?? I like to dip popcorn in mine, so I made up a bigger batch.. I used 1 cup hot sauce and 1 cup brown sugar. Put it in a saucepan add the brown sugar and bring to a boil. Don't forget to keep stirring. You don't want lumpy sauce!! Then I bought a bag of Tyson's frozen breaded chicken tenders. Mmmm... Fry/Bake your chicken, throw it in a tupperware and pour some sauce over the top. Put a lid on it, turn on some tunes (like "Thats not my name by the Ting Tings!) and shake it (the tupperware, not your booty!!) Okay, I am getting a little carried away I think. This is just such an exciting post! Can you tell how much I LOVE WINGERS?? Anyway.. here's proof of the deliciousness.
I also mixed up a batch of Buttermilk Ranch for dipping, cooked up some frozen french fries and there you have it! Dinner in a jiff. Enjoy! :)

Baby Showers!!!

Cute Lisa has already had her baby but here she is at her shower!! :) As we were sitting there chatting, we realized that mostly ALL of our friends have had little girls. When are we going to start getting some boys? So we gathered all of them around Lisa and had to take some pictures! Em is naked because she peed through her clothes. Yes, right on Lisa as she was opening all of her gifts. Poor girl!! I am still sorry about that Lisa! :)

Anisten and her friend Kenley!! They were born on the same day!

Oh Lisa.. you are such a good sport!! :)

P.S. I know a bunch of you wanted those pictures from the shower.. if you want them, email me and I will send them your way! tarathueson {at} gmail {dot} com

Guess What???

We are getting back in touch with the world today. I feel like I
should run down the hall doing heel clicks and singing at the top of
my lungs!! :) I never thought I'd be so excited to get Internet or
Direct TV. Or maybe it's that Emery can finally watch movies on Apple
TV again and I don't have to entertain her 24/7 with all the toys I
somehow didn't bring out. Gosh, I sure forgot a lot of stuff. You
never would of guessed that by how tight I packed that U-Haul.
Anyway... Todays going to be a good day. I can feel it!! :)

This is a pic of Em taking the dogs out. In her hand is the pooper
scooper bags the apts supply that she feels she needs to wear for
hours at a time. Clean ones of course!! :) That bridge goes over the
Mississippi right behind our apartments. There's a ton of bridges
right by us. They look so cool!

Greetings from Mount Rushmore!!!

This mountain is awesome!! :) For those of you who haven't been here
it's seriously in the middle of nowhere! For some reason, I pictured
it with like towns around it or something!! They've made a really nice
monument around it though. What a great place to stop and break up the
trip a little eh?? Next stop... Minneapolis!!! YEAH RIGHT... There
will probably be about 14 between here and there. The joys of
traveling with kids!! :)

So I'm bored... How about you blog friends tell me random/crazy/
interesting facts about yourself. The best wins a prize!! (I've been
crochet-ing "prizes" the whole drive!! :) )

I'll start... I have a rock stuck in my cheek from a car accident that
I sometimes bite on. Eeew.

Now it's YOUR turn. Come on, play!! Keep me entertained. :)

Be Back Soon!!!

So I am going to take a blogging break for a few days. Okay.. so probably for a week. I HAVE to start packing today. I want to show you all Zions, Anisten in her pretty little blessing dress, my new favorite headbands, crafts, etc.. but until then.. UGH! I AM GOING NUTS! I haven't went to bed earlier than 2 AM all week.. usually around 3 or 4am. I am running on empty for sure. Not to mention, I haven't looked at a single persons blog since before Vegas! Now that is a feat for me for sure! :( Not one that I am happy about either.

Today my list of to do's include:

Go stock up on Pureology for the summer.
Return some things to Gymboree
Go to the Post office
Return my Serger to Joann's
Wash piles and piles of clothes
Pick up a book at Barnes and Noble
Go to the Distrubution Center and buy some new undies. :) Take THAT Vickies! :) :)
Clean up from Oh Sweet Sadie.. which by the way, did any of you go?? It was AWESOME this time! So many new things to buy!
Go to a Birthday Party
Kick the Clayton's TRASH in Wii...
Probably pull another all nighter

And last but not least, pack us 4 Thueson's entire life for the next 4 months into this little Uhaul trailor!

Anyone want to come and do all this for me? PLEEEAASSSSSEE!!

Petunia Pickle Bottom

Their sale is going on NOW!! They really don't have much to choose from this time, but if you are in the market for an adorable diaper bag.. be sure to check it out. You can get a steal of a deal! :)

So I was at Joanns sometime last week and saw this book. I've been
searching on the Internet for a "list maker" for an entire house
CLEANSE!! Well seriously, this books AWESOME!! It goes through
everything. Things you would never think about are in there. It's a 52
week organizing plan and you go from room to room, folder to Folder,
top to bottom til it's done! Oh doesn't that sound nice? It gives you
a week to do each task(that's MY kind of time frame!!) and then ya
just keep it up and you'll be organized in no time! :) Anyway, I
highly recommend it. Too bad we move on Monday and won't be able to
try it out til we get settled back.

Oh shiz... Moving on Monday??? Gotta go. Millions of things are
waiting to be done. I can't wait til we get moved and I can just sit
on the couch and do absolutely nothing all day long. Okay maybe that's
a stretch. A HUGE stretch.

This girl...

Had a beautiful blessing today given by her daddy!! And now she's all
tuckered out. I have some adorable pictures of her in her fancy little
dress (thanks Gma Hathaway!!) to show you but for now, I'm going to
be lazy and sit on the couch with my family one last time before this
crazy week starts.

I HATE Laundry!!!!!! Actually I just hate folding everything. Which is
why there has been 4 loads of it being hidden in Anistens crib for
the past week. Well Braun finally found it and this is what what's on
the agenda for the next hour... Sick.

Thursday, April 9, 2009


So with Em I pretty much read every minute of the day
and knew when (or around when) she was going to start doing certain
things. It's different for everyone I know, but when did your kids
start doing these things? Cause I can't remember.

Sit up on their own?

Grab a toy?

Start eating rice cereal?

Roll over?


If you remember one or all.. Answer away!! I'm having serious mommy
brain today!

I'm loving the weather we had yesterday! It got me in the mood for
summer. It made me realize glitter toe season is back!!! Yahooo!

And some ramblings just because I feel like it!!...

Our basement is finished!!!! Oh I am so happy about that. Braun and I
pulled an all nighter last night moving stuff around and putting junk
away! There is still plenty to do but I couldn't stay awake any
longer. We both crashed on the couch and I woke up to a hungry baby.
It's going to be a long day! ;) I think I got about 3-4 hours sleep. I
got more than Braun though! Eek! We bought some new couches yesterday
for upstairs.. Brought them home and they pretty much took up the
entire living room. So we are headed to take them back now. I sure
hope we find something today! I'm sick of looking...

Our phone line AND Internet have been out since the end of last week.
Hence the lack of blogging with anything but my phone. That bugs me.

I have a doctor app tomorrow... I haven't felt like myself lately and
I wanna see what's up.

I tried to start up potty training Emery today... After 5 accidents, I
gave up!! I swear the girl is going backwards.

We are blessing Anisten on Sunday!! I found her the most adorable
little dress in Vegas this weekend. She is going to look fabulous!

Oh Sweet Sadie is next weekend and I haven't prepared a darn thing.
Better get working on that!

And last but certainly not least....

We move in 2 weeks!!! Aaahhhh!!!
(you should see my list of To-Do's! It's a mile long!)

My Hair???!

Sooo... I've been growing out my hair for about a year and a half.
Heck, my hair grows slow!! Well if you were to see me, would you
describe my hair as 'LONG' or 'SHORT' ?? This is a dumb post I know..
BUT I'm really curious. Ha!

Vegas is great by the way:) not NEAR as warm as I would of liked it to
be but still awesome!
