Here is your only chance.....

Look fast cuz there is a million things I want to put out there for the world to see, but it feels like I have no time to do it all, so I am combining some of them, so I can get caught up with my bloggin self again.

Me and My Sis----

We got to spend a whole 25 hours with each other, she rocks, a woppin' 87 lbs of her, this photo was takin at our grandmothers funeral, Chels- I love ya and wish we could be closer.. And for the record, at the funeral, she was a big help to me.. Thanks big sis....

Dating-----
When on my very first bloggin date, I was soo nervous the night before, thought that I would get up that morning and primp, primp, primp. Definatly that didn't happen, Monday morning we woke up, got everyone ready, did gymnastics, soccer camp, kids dentist, my dentist, out to lunch with my mother, and then at 1:00, went on a date with Vanessa to Carls Jr. I gave her her prize, and she handed me one in return, she is too much. I was a big dork, my first comment was your tall, how stupid was that, guess I am not talk show material... She is an awesome girl, go check her out, she posted a photo of us, talked about us, we have a lot in common, when we were in collage she was stalking me and I didn't even know it, jk- We lived a lot of the same places, and now our kids go to the same gymnastics, Freaky? Nope Way Cool... I think I scared her away, no comments from her anymore, Please Vanessa, won't you be my, won't you be my neighbor? Thanks for letting me hang out with you, and I am sorry if I scared you away, or was is ALL my children....Lets do it again sometime.

Mohekonokono is 4 babehhh(months)


We took Kono in for his 4 month check up, he is 95% for head, 95% for height, and 70%for weight. GOOOOO Kono, here is what he can and can't do... He can eat cereal with out any problems at all ( he inhales it, and cries for more), it is the rice with bananas, yes, he is not suppose to have bananas yet, but come on people his gramma has been feeding him tongan food for a good month now, and he is not dead yet!!!(thank goodness) He cannot roll over yet, maybe it's becuase he is never put down...that is mostly my fault, don't care how many I have, I love to hold them, and to be quite frank, he is the cutest, funnest baby eva. He can grunt, growl, and even do the Haka with his bro..(with a little help from dad). He can't take a binky very well, I can't tell if he doesn't like it, or he doesn't know how to suck on plastic things.. He can grab his limbs now... He is teething, I it makes me sad, I don't want him to grow up. not one bit.. We love you!!!!

Attention- please turn pause my music so you can hear this..promise I am not trying to show off. Ok a little bit:)

I wanted to bear my testimony on my blog, but someone encouraged my to do it in Tongan, I love the Tongan culture, therefore I will, but for the one person out there who will understand me, forgive me, I am tired. The rest, just feel the spirit.

ps. who likes my new signature? Go ahead, comment on one, or all, or don't comment at all, but you'd be breakin' my heart:(

Vanessa is just one of the coolest people that I know. She is a scream, and it never ends. She actually is honestly funny, not just something she is making up.
Thank you for following the Ensign amonition, we are all supposted to bear our testimony and start "talking" about the gospel. Your an inspiration...

Crazymamaof6 said...

awesome! love that you went out with a blog friend. i always come off stupid. "oh you have an accent?" things that you can't tell online.

whoohoo for your sister coming.
and helping you out.

and way to go bearing your testimony!

Amy said...

Fianlly... the Devri hotness on the blog! You're so cute... you should shine on your blog more often...

Mindi said...

AWESOME!~

and why hasn't my google reader been picking up your posts--i thought i had you on there....i guess i didn't?
MY BAD. sorry! got it fixed!!

Diaper Diva said...

It is always so fun to meet fellow bloggers! Thank you for your testimony.When I hear a testimony in another language I am always touched. I love your new signature!

Mother Goose said...

Your testimony is beautiful and thank you for sharing! You are amazing. You actually took the time to learn and love the culture. Was this just from marrying your dh, or did you serve a mission?? 7 kids, I am still in awe! I always wanted to have 13 children but HF only saw it in my cards to give me 4 blessed ones. My body just wouldn't allow any more. I had congestive heart failure 3 times in a week after the birth of my last baby. The old ticker was put through too much. Adoption is our only option.
it is so good to put a face with a name. It makes it more personal. Which btw, you are Gorgeous and look great!
Do you come from a large family? How many children does your sister have?

Pineapple Princess said...

I loved your testimony with the beautiful music and pics in the background. I wish I had learned to speak the language. Props to you girl!

tammy said...

Thanks for leaving me a comment fellow blog stalker. I see your name a lot too, and it looks like we have several friends common. Your family is adorable! Way to go on a blog date! I get really nervous meeting people for the first time too. Mostly because they've been telling me my blog is funny, and I worry that I'm totally boring in real life.

Angie said...

Very very nice! How great it is to actually see your face!! I'm telling you, you have beautiful kids!! Great touch on the testimony!

Misty said...

Kono's so cute. I can't believe how big he is. My son used to be in the 90%, now, he's just above average.

Vanessa said...

Wow, thanks for all the nice things you said! I had a lot of fun meeting you as well. I actually thought you might stand me up, and each time someone would walk through the door, I would wonder, Is that her? Your kids are amazing and Aubrey wants to play sometime with your girls. I haven't been ignoring you, just at girls camp. Came home to 200 items on my google reader! Lets do it again soon!

Sweet baby photo. Sisters are the best. Blogging friends are just about like sisters.

Don't have time to listen right now...will be back.

Alice Wills Gold said...

How did you learn your Tongan and how long did it take?

Mrs. Morty said...

Dude, I know your sister!! They live in Kentucky or Tennessee (I guess from her blog) I swear they are in my mom's stake! It was making me crazy cause I couldn't figure out where I'd seen her before and I didn't recognize her husband at first. Crazy small world this is!

Holly H. said...

Very cute pictures!! It's nice to see what you finally look like... you're darling! Cute new name at the bottom of your post too! How do you do that?

MiaKatia said...

I love that you speak Tongan. It is a testament to the love you have for your family and your husband's heritage. I am glad you got to see Chelsea, but I wish it had been under better circumstances. I loved your testimony too, thanks for sharing!

The Mama Hood said...

Hello I can't even do it that well! YOU GO DEVRI! I felt that one for sure! Thanks for helping me remember to speak more Tongan!

The Mama Hood said...

You look wonderful! Are you sure you had all those babies? Good to see your picture! What a fun date!

The Scotts said...

Devri, evan thougth I didn't know what you were saying I really did feel it and it gave me goosebumps. I'm really proud of you-I remember a few years ago when I met you and you were taking Tongan classes. Good job!

Jessie said...

Wow! That was beautiful, Devri. You never cease to amaze me.
