We are still alive!!!

WOW, its been so long since I have posted anything! Lets see where do I start?? The kids are back in school and they love it!! Haylee is in 2nd grade this year and she has her 1st grade teacher in 2nd grade, she is so excited about that!! Pay is in 1st grade this year, he loves his teacher. She is new to our school this year and I love her, she is so great! We have already finished the 1st term of the year, and that means we have already gotten report cards. They both did so good, neither of them have a grade below an A, I'm one proud momma!! Haylee also got an award for her honesty and good attitude and for being uplifting to her friends and everyone around her. She is so amazing and growing up way too fast!! She helps me with anything that I ask her to, she loves her family with all of her heart! Payton is so awesome too, he loves his brothers and they love to be with him. He cant make a move that McCoy and Emmet aren't right behind him, they love him so much! McCoy is such a stinker, he is so funny and loves to make us laugh! He is settling down a little, not beating on Emmet so much anymore. He is so busy, its hard to keep up with him some days! Emmet is right there with McCoy, busy little stinker. He is so funny and loves to cuddle. He is talking a little bit, he YELLS mom and dad and papa, he can say batman, iron man, pillow pet, ball, and a few other words. I love them so much I am so grateful to have the four of them in my life!! As for me and Aaron, I am working at their school part time, I help out in the kitchen doing what ever needs to be done, then I head on down to Haylee's classroom and help out in there. Aaron is working a job that he hates right now, but wont be for much longer, he got a job offer from Dugway and we are way excited to start out there soon. I am so grateful that he works so hard, even at job that he despises, to take care of us! We are pretty blessed, and I am grateful for it all!!

Have you ever looked around your house and just felt blah!? I have been noticing lately that I am really bored with the way my house looks, I need a change!! My problem is that I dont know where to start! I love things that are uniquely mine! When you come to my house I want you to see things that you wont see at the neighbors house. Like right now I am really wanting a different couch set because EVERYONE has the set that I have, that beyond bugs me!! I want a new color scheme, so my thoughts are cream, brown, a mustardy yellow and a teal blue. What do you think?? I know that doesnt sound very great together but I think I have found shades of those four colors that will work. The other thing that bites over here is that we cannot paint the walls, so my walls are white as white can be. I am cruising the internet for inspiration and for things that I like. I have some ideas in my head, and I really want to do something with them.

We are still here!!

So I am sure some of you are wondering if we are still alive! Yes we are, just busy! The month of May was super busy and June followed just as crazy as can be! We finished up the school year and have been loving summer vacation! Lets see what have we been doing? There is so much I dont know where to start! Well I guess the biggest thing is out little peanut Emmet turned 1 on my 25th birthday! That was fun. We had a zoo themed party for him, elephant cake and all. Of course the camera wouldnt work so no pics, sorry. I am way sad about it, you only have one first birthday, but he loved it! I cant believe he is already a year, it goes by so fast. I just love him so much, he makes us all smile everyday!! On Memorial Day weekend, Aaron and I went to the Kansas, Styxx and Journey concert out at Miller, it was so much fun! I had never seen any of them in concert, we enjoyed every minute of it! He took the boys to the AMA stuff out there that weekend and they all had so much fun! Pay and McCoy even rode a mechanical bull, they loved it. We do have pics of that, I will post them later. We havent been out doing a lot of stuff, just hanging out at home enjoying a lazy summer with friends. We are taking this summer really slow, not jamming our schedule full of stuff to do. We love the lazy days of ice cream, running through the srinklers and late nights outside. I hope people still check out our blog, I will post pics soon!

A Quick Update

It has been so long since I have posted anything, wow time flies! Well we are all still alive, we have all been sick, but we are alive! Life has been so crazy busy, we are counting down school days left until summer, we are currently at 11!! So much has been going on with just daily living, school, work, ballet, it never stops for us! After May I hope things will slow way down and I can get caught up on everything around the house and take a breather. But for now we have a ballet performance, two birthday parties, end of school, and tons of other great stuff coming our way. We have no plans for the summer, just hanging out enjoying each other and our friends. So if you are around come on over and hang out with us!!

Getting Better!!

Well this week wasnt as bad as last week, that's always good!! I am LOVING this job at school, the kids, not so much, but its all good. So what I do is I help out in the library and then I monitor the halls during lunch and help out on the playground during lunch, we rotate who is where. Well the Jr. High kids have dubbed me the hall natzi or hall cop, either one works. I think that is so funny, I guess it means that I am doing my job!! But even though they seem to not like me they still come up and chat at me, so its all good! The best part is that I get to spend lunch with Haylee, I love watching her at school with her friends, and hanging out with her. She is getting so big so fast. Next year I will get to spend it with Pay I hope. Aaron is really enjoying South America, he is there with the Marines for a few days. He is having a good time training other men and seeing all the tourist attractions. He got to see the Mayan ruins this weekend, I am so beyond jealous!! I hope we get to go back there some day, I want to go so bad!! He is having a good time, but he is anxious to get home. The kids are themselves doing school, dance, and playing with friends and each other. My van is working, yeah!!! My cousin got it all fixed for me, now I just hope that it lasts!! My wisdom teeth are all healed up but I am still nervous about eating. My jaw is still in a lot of pain, the one tooth was really far down in the nerve, he said that if I were older I would have permamnent loss of feeling in my lower lip, but it has been fine, thank goodness. But now we get ready to start another week of all that life holds for us, time flies so fast!! I am hoping to have the time and energy to start Spring Cleaning this week, we have an inspection next week so I need to be ready!! Anyway things are good with our posse, I hope all is well with all of you!!

Oh What a Week!!

Here is an update from the Vargas posse! Our week started out normal, school, ballet and work. I am really enjoying my job at the school, it is way easy!! I help out in the library and outside during lunch, or monitoring the halls during lunch, not bad at all..Anyway all was going fine until Thursday happened....We got up got Haylee to school then Aaron has to get ready to leave the country for a few days, so we head to Tooele, we stop to get gas and the car wont start...the belt came off and wont go back on. So we call in back up to come and pick up all 5 of us. Luckily my mom had the day off to help me because I had my wisdom teeth out that day. So Aaron and my dad tow my van to Tooele and I head to my appointment. That was the last I saw of Aaron until Friday night. Well I came home from my appointment and slept the rest of the day and all that night. I woke to hear that it is going to be about 700 to fix my car and Aaron wont be around to help me out. Well, thank goodness my cousin can do it for me a lot cheaper, but I still dont know how long it will take. As for my teeth, I am okay, swelling and bruising is minimal, but wow the pain....So for now I am hanging out in Tooele with family until I have a car big enough to get all of us around. It has been so crazy!! I am sure that this post is completely scattered and may make no sense, for this I am sorry. I am still a little drugged but I hope it all passes soon.

I GOT IT!!!!

As I said before in another post, I applied for a job at the kids' school. Just part time to do odds and ends around the whole school.....well I GOT IT!!! WOO HOO!! I am way excited, it will be a nice change of pace for all of us. I was really worried that I wouldnt get it because I froze during the interview, but they still want me. I start Monday at 10, it will be so nice!! Oh and top it all off, Aaron is taking a day shift so he will be home in the evenings now. That means more time to spend as a family, how nice will that be!! It will be nice to have a normal schedule again!
