So many things to report..

First I can actually type normal, that's a plus haha. Meaning I use both hands not my index fingers.

Second we got a new laptop and I absolutely LOVE it! Curt was researching computers for the longest time and we finally decided on the Macbook Air. Oh my gosh! It's so fast and has so many cool things, that I don't think I'll go back to PC haha.

Third we got to go to Flagstaff two weekends in a row and had some awesome fun at the Porter Family reunion. We go every year and I can never get enough of the awesome cool weather. I'm so grateful to have such sweet and loving extended family ;) We are greatly blessed.

As for my wrist, I have a lot of stiffness still, but I have more mobility and I'm able to do more things. Everyday is a challenge, but it has helped me grow in so many ways. I constantly thank my Heavenly Father for protecting me and my sweet  kids. Here are some fun pictures for your viewing entertainment

So many of you may know this already, but I was unfortunately in a car accident last Wednesday night heading home from my parents house. I was following all the rules and laws, but because of someone else not doing so I'm paying the price of a wrist fracture.

The whole experience was surreal. It just seemed like a regular old day and BOOM my whole world was changed in a matter of minutes. My first instinct was to look back and check to see if my kids were ok. They seemed alright, but instantly began crying once they registered what happened. I got out of the car to realize that my left wrist was in pain and looked pretty deformed. I was unable to get my kids out and I was blessed to have a sweet couple that was driving behind me to help.  I'm so grateful that out of the six people involved in the accident (2 cars- mine and the other) I was the only one injured.

I got to the ER around 11:20ish and didnt get into a small room until 1am. I went into surgery Thursday afternoon and didn't get discharged until the next day. Right before I was discharged the Physician's Assistant came in to check on me and said that my wrist fracture was one of the worst they've ever seen. He said usually wrist fracture surgeries take a half hour but mine took an hour and a half. Crazy!!!

On the bright side Curtis never ceases to joke haha. His comment as soon as he arrived at the scene was "Ashley you have this tendency of wrecking our cars at the most opportune moments." And then smiles. So here's the background on that...A month after we were married I totaled my Ceclica and we had been discussing children saying that we were going to need to sel it. No need when it's totaled lol. And now with this car we had been shopping for a van for a month and test drove one on Monday last week, liked it and made an offer Tuesday they accepted set a loan closing for Friday and then my accident the next day. Pretty uncanny timing of it all.

I'd like to thank all the wonderful people who have helped me and my family through this. And to my sweet and loving Heavenly Father for protecting all of us from serious harm.

Every generation has someone who stands above the rest at a particular activity.

Michael Jordan was amazing at basketball.

Lance Armstrong could ride a bike really well.

Babe Ruth will always be a baseball legend.

Frank Sinatra was a great singer.

Napoleon was a great general and strategist.

Ashley Robinson has incredible skills as well. I would say that she is the best in the world at these skills.

I have included pictures below to give you the opportunity to take in the sheer majesty of her accomplishments. Allow me to explain them. Ashley is skilled at stacking dishes in the dish rack. Notice the grandeur of the height she has achieved. The perfection of the placement. The effectiveness of the drainability.

This would indeed be a great accomplishment if she did this once. But she does it time and again, with equal grace.

If you would like to learn these amazing skills, she is holding a class on the subject**. It is only $299.99 per session. Contact Curtis Robinson if you are interested.

So Stella has been wanting a dog ever since my sister got one. To fulfill this need of hers she pretends that Lincoln is her dog and calls him Milo. So today Lincoln shows up in our bedroom with a purple tutu on and Curtis asks Stella "Did you put that on your brother?" Stella's response "What brother?" Curtis "Did you put that on your dog?" Stella, who was completely serious said, "Yes I did."

I heart plays! I totally wish we were rich to be able to see more! Anyways Curtis got us tickets to see Wicked this last Tuesday at Gammage. And all I can say is "WOW!" It was amazing! The story was good, the singing was so powerful! I want to go again haha.

Another cool part of our date was that I got to see a really neat soda machine. Yeah you're probably thinking what's so cool about a soda machine? Well it was a touch screen and that wasn't even the coolest part?!!! When you chose a soda it had like a million different combinations of that soda! Curtis called me a nerd, but I totally took a picture of it for you viewing pleasure haha.

Snow Day!

Snow is so much fun! We had the opportunity to spend some time in the snow today with my friends Shalyse and Chase and their cute kids. Stella and Lincoln had a blast! My mom also was able to come and she enjoyed going sledding for the first time.
I really wish I had my video camera when my mom went down haha. At first I didn't think she would want to go, but then Chase announced that she was coming down and FWOOSH off she went. The sled was hard to control and I thought she was going to crash into some tree branches, but luckily she steered away. At the bottom another lady was trying to figure out how to avoid my mom's path, but instead got crashed into and fell on top of my mom! I was worried, but my mom had a huge smile and was laughing. She had fun, but she did get her hand scratched up pretty bad from the branches.

All in all it was super fun! Stella loved going down the hill with the sled and Lincoln did too, but at first he was pretty scared.

Bad Habits

Stella, my sweet child has a habit of waking up and getting into our bed. As of late she has been a lot better though. Anyway, I went to my bedroom after putting the kids to bed and what do I find in my bed....Not just sweet Stella, but another little body Mr. Lincoln! I cracked up and said Curtis you need to come see this. He laughed too.

What are we going to do about these cute kids haha.
