She's in the ICU right now.
Our amazing Aunt Joanie...
and my wonderful Momma are at her bedside.

Another Booty Scooter?

Drake just moved 5 feet today, twice.
It was very slow going... and it took a few minutes to accomplish, but he did it. ON HIS BOOTY. Can we say DEJA VU?

He's been SOMEWHAT mobile these past couple months, but on his stomach. (Mostly within just a circle with a radius of 3 feet.) I always assumed Haven figured an alternative method to crawling because of the hardwood floors... but here in this rental there's nothing but carpet with a few linoleum "patches."  So who knows... maybe he'll take Haven's lead or maybe it's something he'd just try out 'cause he wasn't feeling Tummy Time. Who knows? But right now it's looking like we apparently have a gene in our family for booty scooting... and it's a dominant one at that.

Here's a couple of videos of Haven in booty-scootin'-action that I just found.
It's crazy how time has flown by.

A Facebook Application That AUTOMATICALLY Uploads Your Blog Posts

Sounds nice right? Just make sure you proceed with caution as this app. has officially turned into our blog's personal stalker. :)
I just added this notes application because I'm TIRED of updating a million things, so I was either on and off the online scene or completely M.I.A. when it came to updating. So when my sister Summer told me about this application that syncs your blog posts to your Facebook, I was dialed. I figured two birds, one stone... pretty sweet right? WRONG- Apparently it's posted EVERY blog I've EVER posted onto Facebook. Basically I, unintentionally, SPAMMED everyone on Facebook out. (& wouldn't let me delete them either... P.S.) Not my thing... notice how often I update my status? Not too often... I prefer not to let everyone know what I just peeled off my shoe, thought of for the 80th time that day, or found inside my toilet. Seriously... the last thing I want to give you is T.M.N.I. (too much nasty info, for those of you who are new to Shabonics). So... incase you were wondering what we've been up to... your thirst just got doused with a YEARLY dose of UPDIKE UPDATES. Sorry!

It's true.
We sold our house!  
We're moving to Arizona.
In the middle of July.
Story of my life. this Wednesday.

So unless you know this group of people... 
or this moving company...
... we'll be up to our heads in these:
Wish us luck!
We're SO excited to be closer to some of you... 
yet so sad to be leaving all of our favorite "Utahns". 
Miss you all already!

Happy Daddy's Day!

I love Love LOVE this song.  If I didn't know better I'd swear I wrote this song for Greg.  Especially the second verse... (well... minus the coffee part :) but it's SOOOO how it is... especially between me and my sisters.  SOOOO classic.  Sky heard this and called to tell me that she found my song... and I have to admit it... she totally did.  (Thanks for the introduction Sky.)  It's also sooo fitting for today.  Long story short, this is the only way to get this song on my blog so you'll have to click it... hopefully it'll bring a smile to your face as it does mine...
