*El has been on vacation since the 19th of this month. It has been totally nice to have him home! He is an amazing man who has been working non stop on projects on the house. I keep telling him to rest but he doesn't listen. We decided that we mine as well bite the bullet and re-do our kitchen while he is on vacation, because he won't get another opportunity until the late summer. And that is our Murphy reunion time. So he has been working on our kitchen. And today it is 100% complete!!! I love it.. I can't wait to get the pictures up because for all of you who have seen my "old" kitchen you will appreciate it! It is amazing!
*Christmas was really good. The kids all got a lot of things and they are having the time of their lives playing with all the new toys and contraptions they got. El and I got the new kitchen.. YEA!!!
*Yesterday was my birthday. BLAH!!! But thanks to my Mom, Sisters and Grandparents for taking me out to lunch! It was yummy and I loved it!
*Today was my 37 week check up. And to no avail still no baby! My doc is out of town so I saw one of the Nurse Practitioners at the office and she told me to wait until my doc gets back until getting drastic with any measures of trying to get this baby out. So my next visit is on the 6th.. I can't wait. Hopefully she will schedule an induction!
*I loved to hear everyones Christmas posts! It sounds like everyone had a great time!
*And I am so sorry for not sending out Christmas cards this year! I loved to get everyone elses though. Next year when I am not woolly mammoth with child I will take pictures!

It isn't that I am freaking out or anything. It is just that all of a sudden sleepless nights are entering my mind and being a constant milk machine isn't really what I am looking forward to do for the next year. The plus side is this, I get to hold my new baby and kiss him and think that he is the most precious thing in this world until the day comes when he finally realizes that playing in the toilet is far more entertaining than me. (for anyone who doesn't know me and toilets, please see one of my first posts. you will totally think it is funny)
Here is what happened during my check up.. I thought for sure my Doc would tell me that I am well over 3 billion pounds and say o by the way your baby is the size of an elephant. But, no such luck..
I gained 1 pound in 3 weeks.. I don't think that should be normal, but she thinks it is.. And she thinks that my babies growth is up to speed.. What does that mean really?? Is he going to come out the size of an elephant, or at least a 10 lb toddler? I guess I will just have to wait and see. The one thing that I am looking forward to is, I have one two week check up left and then I am to every week.. My time is running out and I am happy, freaked out and happy again..
Update on other things: We put up our Christmas tree last weekend. I love it. It is beautiful. I will take pictures in the next while and post them.
Also about the twilight series & movie... I loved the series.. So much that when El was finishing the last two books, I had him read out loud to me so I could hear them all over again.. AHH.. I love Edward.. Okay the movie: I watched it far to close to reading the book. That is what my problem is. I thought that the actors or the director could have done a much better job, but the funny thing is, I can't stop thinking about the movie.. I think, hum.. maybe I should see it again.. BUT NO.. I will wait til I am out of the "twilight mode" as I like to call it so I won't be so judgemental..

AHHH.. I can honestly say that I have never involved myself in books like this before! I am glad it was these ones..
I am also glad that I didn't read them when everyone else did. Because during all of the reading, I was going through a tun of emotions and I was so happy to be able to post them on my blog and have the responses that I had.. Thanks for all of the support!!! No, i do not hate Bella now.. Infact, I wish that I could be as brave as she was in the last book.. she was defiantly not so whinny... And, I don't hate Jacob Black anymore.. AHH.. BOOKS....

I have read Twilight, New Moon & the posted version on Stephanie Meyers web site on the Edward version of book 1.. And now I am onto Eclipse..
First I would like to say, I am on chapter 8. I have a feeling I will not be reading this book as fast, because at this moment I think that Bella Swan is a slut.. Yes I said it.. For all of you who don't want to hear this, please turn away now!!!! There is my warning.. What is she thinking? Really, does she think it is cool to be friends with Jake, and think that Edward will just sit by.. Okay he really isn't just sitting by, but COME ON!!! AHHH I am frustrated.. Can you tell. My good friend Heather has told me that this is a great book and I believe her. I really do, but I can not get over the fact that Bella is having the grass is greener on the other side issue..
I can't take it.. Please, please.. someone tell me that they have felt the same way.. Or am I just being to protective of Edward.. This made up character who I love.. (Ladies.. you know what I mean)
AHHHH.. I hope that as I read on, this will all get better..
Tuesday, November 18, 2008
El also started while I was asleep last night and he wasn't as broken up about the breakup as I was. I seriously cried and felt horrible for Bella..
Why didn't I start these books sooner? O, because if I would have, then what would I be reading right now?? I am not starting the next book until Thursday, because I need my brain to think of everything that has happened..
If you would like to converse with me about what has happened, please do.
Monday, November 17, 2008
El called me when he was getting ready to leave work, and I told him that I was an addict! He was confused. I told him that I was to the Epilogue. The phone went silent. I thought he was going to leave me.. :)
So needless to say, he is currently finishing Twilight right now, and I am on chapter 4 of New Moon..
BTW.. I have cried so much during the first chapters of New Moon, that I think I really am in High School again..
Thank you my greatest friend Heather for having all the books and letting me borrow them.
Is it just me, or am I feeling like I did in high school all over again. I have caught myself crying a couple of times, and having butterflies in my tummy..
AHH.. To be young again..

You Are Chinese Checkers
You live a hyper, fast paced life. You rarely ever slow down.
You are good at juggling many things at once. You are the ultimate multi-tasker.
You enjoy being in a group - in fact the bigger the group, the better.
You are an enthusiastic competitor, and you can be a little ruthless when you play games.
The other day we were sitting in the dining room eating lunch when she starts to tell me all about how babies hurt in your tummy so bad, so she never wants to have a baby.. (I know.. She probably hears me say all of the time, MAN this KID is in my ribs.. WHY??) Or that this boy in her class can't have the snacks that all the other kids have, because he has allergies & his mom has to read all of the labels on the food package.. (I think she is becoming nosy)
Korban has a new best friend named "Alex". I keep wondering where this kid came from. We never go out to play. (because I am a lame mom) O.. And I can't see his best friend. I ask Korban where he met Alex, and he doesn't remember. I love that his imagination is working.. But the two of them (or at least Korban & his imagination) play well together. So I can't complain.
On a side note about the imaginary friend, Morgan had one once. His name was "Frank". The one thing that I remember most about him, (he is imaginary) is that we were at KFC in the drive threw and as I was driving away I ran him over.. Morgan was mad at me for some time.
Gannon is becoming quite verse with his vocabulary. The first thing he said to me this morning when he woke up was, "I want bob" (spongebob) & not very long after that he said "I go poo stink" Ahh.. I love him..
Tuesday, November 11, 2008
I can remember Samantha being so happy to have twin sisters, and she didn't have any issues with the new babies. Morgan was totally at peace when Emer was born, unlike Kylah who all of a sudden started to have crying fits. (thank goodness that is over now) and when Emer was born she was okay with Korban. Korban on the other hand had huge issues when Gannon was born. He refused to let a new baby even take up his space, and that is when he started to rub my arm and face all of the time.
So now I am just waiting to see how Gannon will handle his new baby brother. El and I joke all of the time that "new baby" will come out huge and ready for a fight because he will have to defend himself from Gannon, but I really don't think that will be the case. I think that Gannon will be so excited to have someone to give loves to, because he already loves to wrestle everyone else.
Time will tell..

Then to wake up this morning to snow.. WOW.. Who knew the lake effect would really kick in to effect today.. The weather men always say "watch out for the dreaded lake effect" and today they were right! I think we have a couple of inches, and just when I think it is starting to clear up, the snow starts back up again..
I must admit that I really love snow. As long as I don't have to go in it. But the down fall about all of the winter weather, is now I want to put up my beautiful Christmas tree... Then El would kill me and Christmas would be ruined!!

I thank all who have participated in my last blog comments. I thank Becky for being herself. Since we were young kids she has always been very opinionated, and that is why I love her. She is a great cousin.. And I also thank Veena for being someone who has brought out other aspects that needed to be addressed. Veena you are great! and I love you too..
I hope that by my stirring the pot, you all understand that I appreciate all of your opinions.. Because if I didn't, I wouldn't have asked for them!!! So thank you..
And to all I say,
Stay classy USA.. I'm Angie Murphy
i love anchorman..

Don't let this innocent look full you!
attempting to clean up the mess
I like to call this one "toilet paper super man"
The reason for the ARGH is, it has been a long time!! We can't park on our street, or pull in our driveway.. It is just a pain..
I guess I have to look at the bright side and realize that it is "supposed" to be complete by the end of the week.. That is what the construction guys tell me.. But what it reminds me of, is the movie the "MONEY PIT".. if you haven't seen it, please do..it is old, but funny.. The owners of the house keep asking "how much longer", and the workers keep saying "two weeks".... But in our case they keep saying one week..
We will see how it goes!!!

My question to her was, Morg why are you so happy for fall? Her response, because my birthday is coming up! DUHHH!!
I love fall.. I love the smell, the coolness of the air and Halloween.. And, I love that Morgan and Kylah will be a year older, and that will make me feel much older!!
Friday, September 19, 2008
It first started with Korban on the 13th, then Gannon on the 14th, El the 15th, Emer the 16th, me the 16th, and now Morgan today. So I still have two kids who are yet to get it!!! ARGGGGHH!!! Why, Why, Why???
The one thing I am grateful for is that none of us have had to be hospitalized. My nephew got it and he had to be put in the hospital for about 2 days, because he became very dehydrated..

Emer wanted to take a bath before school, so I ran her one and then Korban decided he wanted in to.. Okay.. No prob.. I leave the bathroom for 1 minute then I hear this crazy laughter and I run in and there is Gannon.. I the tub.. He took his diaper off, but not the shirt.. It was the cutest thing!
Then I took Emer to school.. All was great, then on the way home (mind you it is a two minute drive) (and yes, I drive her.. I am lazy) I hear Korban screaming.... I look in the rear view mirror and Gannon who is in his car seat has somehow gotten a hold of Korban and they are hitting and pinching each other.. Then I realize that Gannon gave Korban a bloody nose.. What the crap?? Can't brothers just love each other all day for at least one day??
AHH.. I can't wait till the girls all get home from school to see what else transpires!
I LOVE MY KIDS!!!!!!

Link the Person who Tagged you.
Mention rules on your blog.
Tell about 6 quirks of yours.
Tag 6 fellow bloggers to do the same.
Leave a comment to let them know.
Thank you Traci for taggin me.. I am pretty boring as you will soon find out..
1. I don't go the grocery store alone. I hate it!! I think it is more of a paranoia than a quirk.
2. Re-arranging is the greatest thing.. I love to re-arrange the bedrooms, living room, kitchen.. Anything.. The thing that sucks is my house is small and I can only move things so much, before it never seems different.
3. Laundry is of the devil. As many of you know, I hate laundry.. Switching it from washer to dryer, then folding, then putting away.. I am still awaiting the invention that does it all for me, and I never have to do it again..
4. I love to organize.. But not my own things..
5. I would love to work full time and have El stay home. The reason... I love to work.. Especially under pressure. I miss working alot, but I do love staying home with my family.
6. I like to dance with my kids. We dance alot! When I was a kid, my mom always would turn the stereo (yes I said Stereo) on and we would dance while we worked around the house or just to have fun.. I like to do the same with my kids.
Here are the 6 lucky people that I tag.. Kariann, Cheri, Tiffany, Tamar, Heather & Jenn

El & wishful thinking.. (Morgan found this 1/2 of a deer or Elk horn.. she reluctantly gave it to Uncle Jason)
