Christams lists Mike and Naomi Rex

Naomi - sorry my list is a bit blah... I need gift cards to maternity stores or for maternity clothes, I am starting to need them!!!! I know there is a destination maternity store in the brea mall, other than that.... I don't know of any, I know kohls and target have ok maternity sections but I'm sure most of you know better than me! Otherwise I love Desseret bookstore gift cards. I'm sorry I'm boring this year, but we have no where to put anything else as we are trying to get rid of stuff to fit the baby!!!

Mike- I don't know what he wants, he is impossible for me to even shop for, but he always loves gift cards to fry's or home depot or lowes. I know he has fire stuff he is buying, but other than that he says he doesn't need anything at this moment. However his set of cordless drills and saw he got many christmases ago has died... the batteries are shot and the batteries costs just as much to replace as getting a new set almost... so that is something he was looking into.... so again sorry we are so blah this year! edit..... mike would like to add: a dremel-like tool kit he saw at frys (30 and under section): Cordless drill replacement batteries are Ryobi 18v ($40-$50 @ home depot)

Almost there...

I found out recently that I passed my background investigation. Now I'm just waiting for a hire date in the next 30-60 days.

Watch out Mexicans.

Back to the beehive state.

Guys, it's been great being down here in CA. But I'm headed back to the great white north.

Obama put the brakes on the Border Patrol's hiring, so I'm going back up to finish school. There's a catch, however. I'm transferring from BYU to to UVU (formerly UVSC) to do their fire program. I'm doing EMT and whatnot this semester and a fire academy next semester. Paramedic school is next year.

Here is a recent picture of me:

I rescued that baby from a tree, and somehow my turnout coat and shirt got ripped off in the process... Dangers of the job...

Love you all. Wish me luck.

Wilson Cousin Reunion

On Sunday, June 8th, we went to Jay's house for a Wilson Cousin Reunion.....what a fun day. Aunt Irene was there with all her kids, Scott, Jay, Hawlie and Nancy....along with a few of their kids. Grandma, Grandpa, Lisa, Ed, Sue, Don and I went too. Our cousin Jeannie showed up along with my friends from Downey Sue and Stephanie Eastwood and Susie's husband Lee. Susie was one of the girls on the train when we met Don and it was her house that they found when they rode for Whittier to Downey on their bikes....Susie said she had shared that story many times in Young Women! How funny. Hope you enjoy the pics...

Brad's Marathon

Post race rub down.

Marcy and me after the race.

Almost there. 26.1 miles

Trying to stand up afterwards.

Well the big day has come and gone. Believe it or not...I ran 26.2 miles to complete my first marathon. It was a little more painful than I expected. It started great. I was nice and relaxed and in the groove up until mile #16. That's when my right knee started to bother me. I have never had a problem with my knee so this was very unexpected. Over the next several miles it got progressively worse and caused me to slow down. Eventually I had to stop and walk for a while at mile #23 because it hurt so much. At mile #24 I met Marcy.

Marcy is from Oceanside and had a baby six months ago. As she came up from behind me she slapped me in the rear and started motivating me to finish strong and not walk. Needless to stay, if hadn't been for her I probably would of walked the last two miles. As I approached the finish line I saw Mac, Tommie and Cole cheering for me. They yelled and screamed for me as I turned the corner for the last 50 yards to the finish line. Kris and Jessie were there on that final stretch yelling and screaming as well. Jessie hoped over the railing and ran the last 30 yards with me across the finish line. I was exhausted and in pain. My legs immediately started cramping and even though I tried to get a rub down it didn't work very well. I had many leg cramps through out the rest of the day.

Over the next couple of days I had to learn how to walk again. It's so ironic. I ran 26 miles on Sunday but on Monday I couldn't walk 26 feet. Overall the experience was incredible. My knee seems to be OK and is not bothering me anymore. As I start to feel better I will reevaluate my training and prepare for the next one. Yes, that's can say it...who in their right mind would do it again. But, I think I will.

Horsin around!

Rocky and Cindie are teaching Rick and I how to really ride a horse.  This is how they do it in Norco!  We spent a lot of time out at the Rock n C Ranch last weekend and had a blast with them.  Rick helped Rocky and Paden with the saloon and I hung out on the porch and with the girls.  Rick and I went on a trail ride thru Norco, tied up our horses and went shopping.  When we were done we jumped back on our horses and went back to the ranch.  It was crazy fun!  There is a lot of hanging out in the arena on horse back and I think it is really the life. We love visiting the Rock n C Ranch!!

The Easter Egg problem

Okay.....Who did it????? Dave mentioned that he didn't have an egg hidden...WRONG....I found his yesterday right behind the house...Big and purple...just like Danny's...This is getting serious...I think there must be a mole in our group trying to mess with the purple egg holders. Hopefully a smart detective will be able to come up with a solution so this won't happen again. Actually grandpa helps the bunny and keeps track to where every egg is hidden sooooooo, it is a mystery that may take more than one person to solve.....

Tuesday, April 28, 2009


OK for those of you who didn't hear yet our washing machine took it last breath last week. It overflowed and ruined the kitchen floors. During the damage demolishing they suggested we have the floors tested for asbestos and the test came out positive for asbestos under the floors. So we have to have the entry and kitchen contained and the men have to wear protective gear to rip up the floors. Think ET scene. This should be taking place Thursday or Friday.

I will keep everyone posted and updated on the progress. Right now I feel like I'm losing my mind. I took a few pictures for everyone. Hopefully after everything is said and done we will have a wonderful happy healthy kitchen.

Clearing my name...

I'm not sure what happened... but I most definitely DID find my egg. I know there is someone out there who can back me up...

Would a face like this lie?

No way.

Possible causes of the extra egg...

1. Two eggs were made for me.
2. In the previous 6 years of missed Easters, an egg was made for me, but I was not there to find it. (If this is the case, there might be 5 more hanging around in the backyard)

I actually found my egg rather quickly, but that's not too surprising if there were 6 of them out there...

Friday, April 17, 2009


This morning (Friday after Easter) Grandpa and I were out weeding the hill when I found a purple Easter Egg! WHAT!!!!! Someone came in and feasted on the food without finding their egg. NO WAY!!! When I looked at the name I was surprised to see that our own Danny had actually come in and had food while his egg was still in its hiding place.
We had a late start as so many have late Church but we had a great time even if the weather was a little cool. The Bocchi ball tournament got cut a little short and Grandpa and Mike were victorious over Dave and John, but that was the only game played. We missed Jenny, Warren, Billy, Mason, Hailey and Nicki. The rest of the gang was here and we had a good visit and had the usual Easter food. We celebrated Tyler and Dannys birthdays. Tyler was thrilled with his new bat from his mom and dad and Grandma made a pillow case for Danny that had the names of a lot of favorite surfing spots on it. I wish you could have seen his face when he opened it. He thought it was a shirt when he first saw it and I think he thought that I had lost my mind. He would never want to be seen in it but was real happy to think of sleeping on it and dreaming about surfing. Karen Amagrande came by with two of her daughters, Michelle and Bekka and we all had fun reminising about good times at the River.
We all are looking forward to Mothers day at Black Meadow and so here is the cooking schedule

Lunch..Debby and Grandma
Dinner..Eddie and Sue

Lunch..Sherri and John
Dinner..Debby nd Grandma

Well... for those of you who don't know, Auntie Nay and I (Jessie) went to Utah and Idaho to look at college campuses of interest. What started out as a simple trip to Utah, took a few twisty turny thingys and ended up being quite entertaining. To make sure you get the FULL story... let's start from the beginning...
Auntie Nay said there would be some rain in Utah so we should pack warm clothes... of course, CAlifornia is not the coldest place.. so our warm clothes are NOT in any way shape or form UTAH WARM CLOTHES... please note for future trips of yours that UTAH is much COLDER when it rains. Especially when temperatures reach freezing and the rain drops turn to snow sleet. (At least it was pretty to look at.)
Day One:
Salt Lake City, Temple Square
(Welcome to Utah)
Firstly, Temple square is basically under construction. Don't get your hopes up on finding a parking spot... if you can find a parking lot. Once we DID find a parking spot, we paid... in an "on your honor box" (haha only in Utah). Those Mormons! Because it was raining... I mean POURING... we couldn't find anyone to take our picture for us outside the temple, so we did our best to accomodate ourselves... Three cheers for Nay Nay!!
Day Two:
Provo Utah
Rain... I mean Snow.
We spent Wednesday in Provo. It was raining when we left and to our pleasant surprise... whattya know... SNOW. We took the BYU campus tour with our very perky tour guide... *AND CUTE* on a Golf cart..... PS his name is Rhett... please see picture below. Don't we look lovely in our california rain clothes. we are sooo californians.

We had lunch with Lonette Stoddard. She's one of Kathy Raile's friends who works at BYU. I went to Nauvoo with her in February. We ate at the Wilkinson Center and then visited the HUMUNGO BYU bookstore. This is what BYU looked like when we came out of hibernating.

By the way, this is what our car looked like... we had a hard time finding it a couple times... because all the cars looked the same with their snuggies on (refer to commerical) . *Naomi doesn't think anyone will get that.* But you can totally ask her what happened on the way out from the Seagull Bookstore.

Many times we screamed like chickens with our heads cut off on our way into the mall... grocery stores... and multiple other places. We even learned how to create the human tidal wave with our car. There was so much slushy snow on the ground that our car swam in it. AND just walking in the parking lots was entertaining because from the time we walked from the car to a place where it was dry... our socks were soaked... no matter how hard we tried to keep dry. PS Californians do not own snow shoes.
Day Three:
More snow... and then rain

We went to Idaho EARLY this morning. NOTE I woke up EARLY over spring break.... and i DID NOT ATTEND SEMINARY. We drove four hours to Rexburg and toured the campus with our tour guide Ashley. It cleared up in RExburg... JUST FOR US!! YEA!!!
The rexburg temple is absolutely gorgeous.. and we didn't get a picture.. you can google it. And we saw basically every temple in utah. At least half of them. Then we totally drove back another FOUR hours in the car. IT rained. and WE SANG.... a lot... in the car... to the beatles... to keep awake because we were both exhausted. that is EIGHT freaking hours in a car. A CAR!!! but i got a free BYU -I Tshirt!!!! Yippeee!!!
This is us EXHAUSTED when we arrived home in Midvale at Scott's place.
We would like to thankGrandma Debby for taking us to the Airport and for picking us up tomorrow. We very much enjoyed her company and appreciated her taking the time to drive us to the airport and home. WE LOVE YOU.
And Thank you mom and dad and uncle mikey for letting us go on our trip to visit the BYU campuses... WE ARE HAVING TOOOOOO MUCH FUN.
And we are SO ready to go to bed. (We miss our beds)

Mike Stopped By Yesterday.....

Hey, Mike stopped by yesterday with Xena and Gizmo. He had just gotten off from spending 24 hours at a fire station going on runs etc! He looks great and says all is going well. He'll start the EMT part of his trainging soon. Mike said most of the guys in his academy already have their paramedic training, but he has his EMT certificate and I know he'll do just fine. His graduation date is Friday, May 15th. He's getting a REAL paycheck and is well on his was.....Love you Mike!

Thursday, March 26, 2009


Danny took his written for the Border Patrol this week and got a 97% on it.  He had the option of taking the Spanish version and did that and he was the only "white" boy in there.  haha  He said everyone else spoke Spanish as their native language.  Spanish speaking missions are the best!  It's amazing how well he can speak and write in Spanish only having done it for 2 years.  His oral interview is next week.  Say a little prayer for him please. :)   Can't wait to see everyone on Easter!

Mike's Academy

So...... the news that is not official but almost official as soon as Chief Heinsel signs it.... well because of the budget cuts and what not.... they are cutting Mike's academy down by 2 weeks meaning he will graduate now on Friday May 15th, the week of the river. Now it is not set in stone, just almost.... so I will definetely let you guys know, just giving a heads up. Mike did not want me to say anything because it is the week of the river... he was just planning on graduating and telling you guys afterwards... really..... he is so funny. If he really wanted that to happen, he wouldn't have told me :) But really, he doesn't want anyones river trip to be cut short for a boring graduation.... but I'm bummed because they should have shaved one more week off so the possibility of going to the river for me could have been entertained :) Anyways, for those that want to go to the graduation, that's when it is for now.... It's really not a big deal to Mike though who comes so don't worry about it, we'll miss everyone at the river though, maybe some of you guys will want to take another mini trip in the summer or something to hang out at the river for a few days!!!! Anyways, we love you all, thank you for your support, Mike is doing great, tired, but hanging in there. He's been doing really well on all his tests, and his finals are in two weeks for combat training. We will keep you updated.

Brad's Half Marathon

Well, I finaly did it. I ran my first half marathon last Sunday in Huntington Beach. Thats 13.1 miles. I finished in two hours eleven minutes, a ten-minute mile pace. It was quite the experience and I couldn't believe how far the .1 mile was at the end. There were over 10,000 runners for this race. In case your wondering... no,I did not win. But I feel real good now that my legs have stopped cramping. Kris and the kids had a good laugh as I tried to walk around the house afterwards. I am now looking forward to my first full marathon (26.2 miles) on May 3rd. Wish me luck!!!!!!!!

Hi family

Ok, so I am finally on here! Thanks Debby for the persistance, this last time finally worked. So Mike is doing well in the Academy, he already told ya that! He comes home between 6 and 630pm every night eats dinner, sits on the couch and starts falling asleep around eight and then I shake him awake, he gets up, gets his stuff together for the next day, polishes his shoes (I help with that sometimes) then he's off to bed around 9pm, back up at 430am to do it all over again! I'm having fun getting up with him and making his lunch and breakfast and sending him out the door, then I go back to bed! On nights I work we sometimes see each other before I leave and he gets home for a few minutes in passing, so those days are hard because I go up to a couple days with out seeing him, and he's on his own for lunch! But I try to break my schedule up so that I only work one night at a time so I can be home to take care of him.

On Wednesdays he goes to the Chiropractor, and then that night we have mutual. So I try not to work Wednesdays so I can go to mutual and spend time with him during the day! Ok, so that is Mike's life right now, we look forward to seeing you guys on Sunday at Grandmas and Grandpas!

Now I have to tell a work story because I still am shaking from the experience, but this is why I pray for help every night I go to work....I will try to make it as clean as possible :)

Last night I went to work, had a normal c-section pt.... everything was going fine... then I got called back to Labor and Delivery to take over a co-workers pt because she had 2 of them and one was going to surgery.... So I got report, and basically the report said that she was 1 cm dilated, sleeping and not really feeling any contractions, she was 35 weeks pregnant, so a little early, but was Ruptured so we had to deliver her, our NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) knew about the baby because it was early so they were set up for the baby. Anyways this was at 245am. I walked into the room and introduced myself, and she said she wanted an epidural, I was explaining the pain management options.... you have to be 4cm... etc.... and then I was like well lets just check you... She was 5 cm, so I went and called the Doctor, and started getting her ready for the Epidural, they were in surgery so I gave her IV pain medication first to calm her pain down, and that worked... she went to sleep. This was around 0310am... not much time has passed.... so she dozed until about 0330, I was able to get her ready for an epidural so at 0335 I checked her and she was 7 cm... not feeling pressure so I called the Doctor, he stated he was 15 minutes away and coming in.... I said... ok, I thik if I try and sit her up for an epidural she will go to complete, he said try anyways... Ok, so I went to talk to the Anesthesiologist, and then he told me to go sit her up..... Walked back into the room about 0340 pt was getting up to the bathroom, she said she only had to pee and was not feeling pressure and that she's be right back out... It always makes me nervous when a multip (someone who has had more than one baby) gets up because they can dilate so fast.... so anways she went pee, and was in the bathroom, I kept asking if she was ok, she said yes, so I went and grabbed the doctors meds... and came back in, she was still in there, I put some gloves on to change her bed, when I heard a moan at 0343, I swung the bathroom door opened, pulled her off the toilet, put my hand down there and the head was crowning... her husband and I were trying to get her back to bed, I yelled for help, realized she wasn't going to make it to bed, ordered her husband to help me lay her down on the floor right there (outside the bathroom about 6 feet away from the bed) and as soon as we layed her on the floor the head (which I had been trying to hold in) came out, then I was all twisted half upside down anyways I must have looked hilarious... anyways, I delivered the rest of the baby, (don't worry the baby didn't hit the floor, I was holding onto it for dear life) another nurse walked in and helped clamp and cut the cord, meanwhile, another nurse came in with blankets I grabbed one to stimulate the baby to cry, as soon a the cord was cut, I hurried the baby over to the warmer, NICU came in to assess baby (by the way the baby was born at 0344), meanwhile the baby was crying and looking great (oh and when it came out in it's left hand the baby had the cord wrapped around and was squeezing it like a bunjee cord (like it was bracing itself for the speedy delivery!) So I had blood all over me, my hands were clean, but the rest of my body was not, the floor was a mess... so we cleaned the floor, three of us got her up and placed her in bed, where the Placenta delivered, and the doctor walked in at 0355.... so I had this pt for one hour... and ya... crazy night.... it was like an outer body experience, I am truly grateful that Heavenly Father gave me nursing instincts that jumped into action and took over, because I doubt if I would have been able to tell you how i would have handled that situation, I just did, and ya, so Prayer is amazing, and I guess all those studying hours of critical thinking skills buried themselves in me somewhere, to come out at the right moments! I have to say though, that dad was my hero, he didn't panick and he listened to every order I barked at him! Ok, so that was a crazy wacky night in the life of a Labor and Delivery nurse!

Nate's LACO Fire Graduation

Nate graduated from the LACO Fire Academy on Friday 28 2009. It was a wonderful day and we are so proud of him.  Rick and I are so happy, I think I may miss making all those lunches for him =).  His new station is #12 in Alta Dena. He is on the B shift and his first day is February 1st.  We hope he doesn't have to cook on his first day. Ha!  

This is P. Michael Freeman (the #1 guy) presenting Nate with his badge, #1591.  Rick was able to really pin it on Nate thanks to Chief Bryant... First class to be able to do that in ages.
Here's Nate standing at attention, waiting to be called up to the  stage.  I love this picture!  Thank you  everyone for your support and prayers.  We love you and now can't wait for Mike to be next!

L.A. County Fire Dept. Academy

Sorry, my wife still hasn't been able to sign into the blog so she can't write on here yet. Things are going great so far. We have a really good group of guys, and everybody is helping each other out. The captains say our class has the highest scores that they've ever seen. I'm doing good. Tired, and sore, but good. I have got to go to work now. I'm in the parking lot, and everyone's showing up now. I'l try to everyone updated.

Is Mike really in the LACO Fire academy?

Hey Naomi!!! We are all really excited for Mike and would like a little up date.  Rick and I drove by the training facility on monday and they were testing the recruits that day. (Rick's captain is one of the testers) so how about a little up date on Mike.  We love him and are praying for him.  The family bog is a perfect place to let everyone know what he's doing and how it's going. =)

survivor stratagy

i think its funny that sue and ed posted about survivor. mom and i have been asking our clients a question for a couple weeks and i keep forgetting to ask my family the same question.

how would you play the game? would do what you could to play the game? would you always tell the truth? would you outwit, out last, out play? or would you pull a johnny fair play? hahaha

what would you do? i personaly would know how to start a fire, tie knots, fish, and make jewelry(jenn i need some pointers) i would play the game. if i needed to pull a johny i would. heelllooo people, it worked!(for a little while) but it sure was good tv. i have family and friends, and i am not going for more. i am going to play

Ed auditioned for Survivor today!

It was SO much fun!  We got to meet Sugar and Gillian and hang out with them for about 3 hours.  They answered tons of questions and we learned sooo much about Survivor.  The casting director was there and she told us so much stuff.  From this last season they found Sugar in a dog park and originally wanted her for the show Greatest American Dog but the casting director hoped she wouldn't make it because she thought she was perfect for Survivor.  Also, she found Matty in a grocery store in LA fighting with his girlfriend and thought he was so funny so she asked him to audition.  She also told us about the time when Johnny Fairplay lied about his grandma.  She got a call in the middle of the night from the producers and had her call to see if his grandma was alive.  He was lying to the producers too...telling them she was dead.  We found out that they don't know yet where this next Survivor will be filmed.  But once they get picked they leave and have no further contact with their families until after it's over.  They are in the remote location for a few weeks before Survivor starts and they are with the rest of the cast but are not allowed to talk to each other until they land on the beach and the game begins.  They get paid around $2000.00 for every three days they are in the game.  If they are kicked out first they have to stay their for the entire time but do not get paid.  Sugar and Gillian said everything you see is real.  They do not tell them where to go or what to say and they do not feed them out of the view of the camera.  They said it is a true reality show.  They said it was much harder to deal with the people in the game than the conditions.  They said that after they are voted off they have to walk down that long, dark path with a blindfold on so they don't know where they are going.  Once they are kicked off they are taken away and have no further knowledge of what goes on in the game.  Ed was very lucky to have the casting director there.  She gave him lots and lots of helpful hints on what to say in his audition.  He talked to Becky who auditioned last week in Palm Springs and there was no one from the show there and their audition was only 1 minute.  Ed's was 2 minutes.  They take you into a room in the back and put you in front of a camera and you have to talk about yourself for 2 minutes.  They ask you no questions.  The camera guy told someone that Ed did really good!   If he makes it, they start filming at the end of June and go to the middle of August.  Ed really wants to do this so I hope he makes it!  Keep your fingers crossed.  They told him that he should get a phone call by the end of next week if they want him to move on in the process.  Here are some pictures from today.  You know I had to document this adventure!

Rockstar Tournament Champions!!!!!

We spent last weekend in Tustin at a soccer tournament for Harlie. Her team was playing some pretty tough teams and wasnt expected to do very well. We tied the first 2 games and were playing the 1st place silver team in Southern California. Somehow they were able to pull of a win 2-1 which moved us to the finals. The final game was played agaist a team we have lost to 5 times by 1 goal. The game was fun to watch, it was well matched up and Canyon PSA GU12 were able to pull off a victory!!! Harlie had her best tournament to date on the field. Her foot work was top notch!!! Congratulation Harlie we are very proud of you!!!! Wish us luck as we leave tomorrow for another tournament against some nationally ranked teams in Arizona.
