BOO at the ZOO!

I had super Saturday this morning in my ward and had signed up to make some crafts. So when Erik, his dad and his sister decided that it would be fun to go to the Zoo today dressed up, I was a little bummed. But I got her ready to be Tinkerbell and off they went to the zoo!

Here is a picture of Denique a.k.a Tinkerbell with Miss Utah 2011 a.k.a Danica, my cousin!

On Saturday we took Denique to a children's play. The play was the Counterville Ghost. I thought since kids were playing the parts that it couldnt be that scary, and Eriks cousin was playing in it. (it wasnt scary but I am also 24 and Denique is almost 3) She watched the whole thing not being scared, sat by herself didnt need to be held. At intermission she ran and played with all her aunts and uncles, not saying anything about how the play was scary. If anyone asked her about it she said she liked it. I didnt think anything about it, so Saturday night when we put her to bed and everything was normal I thought she would be ok. She woke saying that there was a scary ghost in her room, I just put her back to bed and she was fine. The next morning she didn't say anything about it. Well Last night, oh last night, poor girl. She woke up crying and I sent Erik into get her. (Lately she hasn't liked when her dad goes in and usually I end up going in to put her back to bed. She listens to me but not to him) As soon as he open the door and saw it was him she screamed (like she was being tortured, it was not just a normal one, it was straight out of a horror movie) then all I hear is Erik saying " oh my heck, what the heck, Denique, Denique!" By this time, which is like 4 seconds total, I am out of bed running to them. So many thoughts going through my head. Is her room on Fire? She has little pumpkin lights in her room and I am always paranoid about it. Did someone break her window? I would have heard it. When I saw them she was kicking punching and screaming at Erik because he had picked her up. She has never done this. She came right to me and clung to me for dear life. She wouldnt even let me pull her away to just look at her face. I had to hold her for like 5 minutes, with her clinging to me and saying that she was scared. I finally was able to talk to her while still holding her but I could see her face and she kept telling me to hold her tight and her big eyes were looking around the room. Needless to say she slept in my bed the rest of the night. So my theory of why she was scared of Erik is because he sleeps in his Garments, (all white like a ghost) and she thought he was one then he picked her up which scared her!
I am hoping that this will go away but until then, anyone have any ideas to get rid of ghosts?

I have been missing in Action!! I havent had a post since June!! HAHA sorry! I need to be better at blogging but am finding it hard to find time to do it!!

Here are some things that are going:

Erik is super busy with work. He usually works a full day at American Shredding then goes over to the gym with me and works till 8 p.m. He is pulling some long hours but I am sure thankful he is there to help me!

Michelle: Is stressed, happy, nervous, excited and many more emotions! Life is crazy. Here is how a normal week looks for me.
Monday: RHS Cheer in the morning home with Denique cleaning and being a mom (if not grocery shopping or running around town) ace at 4 till about 8:30
Tuesday: Being a mom, wife and housekeeper til about 2:00 then i go to the high school to work the cheer competition team there then straight over to Ace at 4:00 til about 8:30
Wednesday: RHS cheer in the morning, Stroms Repair from about 9:30-3:15 then straight to Ace from 4:00-9:15
Thursday: stay home with denique, RHS jv game at 3:00 then straight to ace from about 5:30-10:00
Friday: RHS Cheer then straight to stroms til about 4:00!
Saturday: clean house, yard work, clean Ace and any other things that is needed.
Sunday: Church and relax and get ready to start over!!!

On the good side, Ace is picking up like crazy! This was my best week yet!! I had 14 Thats right 14 new clients call in to come try a practice or they did come try a practice!! That is huge for me!! That is all the clients that I had last year!!! and I am hoping that I gain about that in one week!! I would be happy to gain 1/2 of those. Actually i would be happy with one new client. But hopefully more join!!

Denique: is growing like crazy! Everytime i look at her she looks so big and I am reminded that she is not a baby any more that she is full blown toddler!! She is also so smart and she loves to be at the gym (as long as she gets to be out with the teams and not stuck in the office with dad) she is picking up on all the cheer and tumbling skills just from watching. Hopefully I can post some videos of her being funny!!

Greatest Daddy Ever!!

Comments like this make me so happy. I married the right guy and started a family with someone that would do anything for his family. He is wonderful!

From the mouth of Erik Brown

" I caught a wiff of her poop a couple minutes ago from a diaper we forgot to take out.. It made me miss her"

What a sweet (yet weird) comment. She is at my moms house while he is working from home and I am at work for my dad.

He makes me smile!! Love you babe!

I'm Back!!

Hey Y'all! I have been M.I.A for awhile but I am finally back to blogging. A lot has been happening at our household. Erik and I have been really busy getting the business started and going, but it is going well. Denique is 18 months old now!! She is such a big girl and not a baby! Makes me sad to think that my little girl is growing up so fast. She went to nursery for the first time and she loved it. She didnt even cry!! She actually didnt want to leave she kept going to back to her teacher. We have had a great start to the summer, so far we have gone swimming at Grandmas, went to the splash park with our cousins, Erik and I went on the MDA Ride (motorcycle ride), Denique slept at Grandma's (only the second time I have left her overnight) Denique was on Studio 5 on channel 5 modeling tu-tus, and we went to lagoon and we have a lot more planned!! I love spending time with Denique so much, She is so smart, and she is talking so much.

here are some pics of what we have been up too!

Just an F.Y.I

My computer has been acting weird so I have been using our other one. Unfortunately there are no pictures on this computer and so I kept putting of the blog. I am going to try to get on my computer in the next few days and hopefully it doesn't freeze on me.

Anyways we are enjoying the new spring weather. Denique always wants to be outside. She is really into her baby dolls right now. She Keeps me entertained.

Erik and I are busy with the business. We are hoping to close on our loan at the end of this week and start painting and getting the new building ready.

Hopefully a better post and some pics will be up in the next few days.
