HELP... I'm too BUSY!

So this week I met with a nutrionist as a free part of my gym membership, yep I joined a gym. I have decided and am motivated to get down to my pre-babies weight. I was pregnant for about two years straight so this the first fall I have not been pregnant since 2005. Crazy! So my nutrionist asked what my goal was and sadly enough I said, "I want to lose the weight by June, before I get pregnant again." I know it isn't the typical answer, "to fit in a swimsuit," but I want to be healthy for my next pregnancy. This was very puzzling to her at first. Why would someone want to lose weight just to get pregnant and gain weight shortly after?!? Well, I am going to get in shape and eat right and work out. This is where the TOO BUSY comes in.

I have all of these goals and motivation but how do I create more hours in the day to make it to the gym and eat right. I realized this week that I am a pretty busy person with church, work, kids, and teaching piano lessons. How do people do it? DO they have a magic potion to create more hours in the day to make healthy meals and clean the house and get to the gym? Do they have a magic potion to just make you instantly thin and looking great? I need the secret. I got to my breaking point last night when I realized I was not going to make it to the gym last night or tonight. TWO DAYS IN A ROW... this isn't looking good. HELP!! I need help... How do women do it all?

Aydan's Halloween Parade, Halloween day and Breckenridge

Ok, so be prepared for a long post. I have had no time to blog so I have a lot to blog about. Aydan was in his first Halloween parade at school. All four of the 3 year old classes sang songs and paraded. Peyton was a Bear, Aydan a dog, and Max was Batman.

Aydan is right next to his "girlfriend" Megan. She was a pretty cute witch.

Peyton Paraded as Bear, he was so cute.

Max was a tough Batman.

Amy's Birthday Lunch
On Halloween we celebrated Amy's Birthday with lunch and some playing at the Orchard. Amy turned the big 3-0!!! Here are some cute pictures of the kids playing before our fun night of trick or treating.

Aunt Jen and Baby Asher!

We had a great time and Amy had a pretty great Birthday.

For Halloween we went to my mom's house for some games and then went trick or treating around the neighborhood. The kids were pretty good for the first four houses but then they all wanted to be carried. This didn't mean they were done, but that they just wanted to be carried from house to house.

Mya and Aydan bobbing for apples.

All of the kids laughing at Uncle Clay because he was blowing bubbles in the water.

Asher and Grandpa

Aydan was a pretty cute puppy

Aaron missed most of the trick or treating, but I got this great picture of him and Asher. Asher was adorable as a lion.

This is just a comparison picture of Aydan when he was a lion for Halloween in 2005. They look pretty similar.
Halloween was so much fun this year. I love dressing the boys up. Aaron and I also dressed up for a Halloween party, but I hate to dress up.

We have been so busy and needed a little break so we headed to Breckenridge for the weekend. We took the Matt and Mindy Carlson Family. The kids had a great time playing and we had a great competition of Dance Dance Revolution. Here are a few cute pictures from the river of Aydan and a really cute picture of the boys with Aaron.
