We had a good weekend...

Unfortunately, this is the only pic I took... But isn't it adorable!

So, Devs & I met up with his family (my "FIL" if you may) in St. George and had a great weekend filled with fun, laughter, and.. a wii remote slamming and cracking the flat screen tv. Now that's what I call a vacation!
Seriously it was an awesome time. Devon's sis and her hubby did a Triatholon while we were down there and they, along with their friends which one of them was 11 wks pregnant, finished in under an hour. I kept thinking that if I were to do it, I'd barely finish in 90 minutes... Plus, I don't even think I'm spelling triatholon right so there's no way I could actually participate in one! Kudos to all of them on a job very well done!
Besides that, we showed them around the town. Pizza Factory, red rocks, a little thing they never heard of all Cafe Rio, and of course a few polygamists here and there. Other than that we had a great time just relaxing and having a good ol time.
Yep, yep, yep... We really did have a good weekend with the Tonkas that we haven't seen since April!! Let us not wait until the next triatholon to get together again.
P.S. I am seriously awful at taking pictures... Luckily Victor captures every moment and the pics are awesome so maybe he should start a blog so you can see the awesome fun times we had. Because what he lacks in wii control holding, he gains in amazing photography. Hehe good times.

I'm it...

I was tagged...

And it's all about
this guy.

What's your husband’s name? Devon Alan Tonks

How long have you guys been married? 1 year, 1 month, 20 days and 57 minutes. I kid, I kid. It's now 58 minutes and 3 seconds.

How long did you date? 9 glorious months. Well 8 months it was official. Well okay only like 4 1/2 because we were in diff states most of our courtship.

How old is he? 23. He's such a cradle robber. I mean, Hellloo Demi! Am I right?

Who eats more sweets? He does. My niece came w us to church on Sunday and when I would give her a treat he would stare me down til he got one too. And then he'd go back to coloring. I'm not joking.

Who is the better singer? That's a toughy. We duet a lot and we switch off doing the boy and girl parts so it's hard to figure out whose voice is whose... or is it whom?? idk.

Who is smarter? I'd have to say Devon. Usually our convos consist of him saying something genius and me just trying to take it all in. He's brilliant.

Who does the laundry? Me, and if Devo says otherwise that means he's lying.

Who pays the bills? He does, but I'm the cause of most of them. Women be getting cysts out and havin kidney infections.. My bad.

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? It used to be me. But one night I was like, "let's mix it up!" and he's been sleepin on the right ever since.

Who mows the lawn? Some guy that's not Devon.

Who cooks dinner? We both chip in. Or go out.

Who drives? He does. Unless I'm mad at him. For some reason I think my driving is punishment.

Who is the first to say they are wrong? He is. And don't you forget it.

Who kissed who first? He kissed me. After our Holiday movie snuggle fest. We watched Jingle All The Way. Arnold Schwarzenegger will be forever dear to my heart.

Who asked who out first? He did. He texted me to hang out one night and weird story, my roomies and I were talking bout these boys we met and how the one with the hair was pretty cute,then my phone buzzed and it was him. And since I couldn't put two and two together, I remember asking if my roommates knew anyone named Devon cuz he just texted me. Omg we were all so giddy! I was like the luckiest girl in King Henry.

Who wears the pants? We both do. Although, I can take care of my pants. Devon, on the other hand, did the splits last night while trying to tackle me and ripped his. Silly boy.

I tag: All my married bloggin friends. You know who you are.


You know you love us. xoxo.

P.S. Speaking of GG, didn't everyone love when Blair met Cyndi Lauper. Ack!


Let's Rock!

Alright, alright... So this week has been grand so far. Monday was the Metallica concert which I did not go to but Devon & Cole did. Ahh man it was so.. bro-mantic. Hehe. Cole even came to our place an entire hour earlier than he was supposed. He blamed it on the daylight savings but c'mon we all know he was just way excited for his guy-date. I'm really glad they could celebrate Dev's anniversary present together.
On Tuesday it was Tessa's birthday party. It was a "Rock Band" theme so you had to dress up. The Madsens/Osbornes got really into it. Unfortunately my camera battery died so I only have a few pics. But I hope you can imagine how carazy it was! Ahh man, Happy Birthday Tessa.
Now, a few pictures... With a few captions... Devon & Coleman leaving to go to Metallica! Cole was a gentleman and had him home by 11:30. He's a keeper.
This is stone with a pink faux hawk. On the other side of this picture is the amazin rock band set up. Stone thought it was okay.

Rubie boobie relaxin on the birthday girl. Actually, Rubs was in a position where she couldn't get up on her own. I hate when that happens to me.

Pete Wentz & Ashlee Simpson-Wentz. Yep, we won the costume contest. And that is a blanket in my dress not an actual baby. People were confused.

And there you have it. Our fun filled Monday & Tuesday of the week. I'm blogging this today because Wednesday is not filled with fun. Unless you count watching The Cable Guy fun. Which I really do. Alright, see ya... byyee... (That was a quote from The Cable Guy, just imagine me fake walking down a hall and you'll get it.)

Hello, hello, hello... The Badonka Tonkas had a fun filled week, yes we did. I'll start with the most fun event (drumroll) "The Madsen's can food!" Yeah, you heard me. Early last Saturday morning we waited for the Dry Pack Cannery to open so we could pack dry food like you wouldn't believe.Here's some of the crew in our hair nets and beard guards ready to work!
This here is table one canning hard. Yes, Go Team Cailey! We can work on the name...

Oooohh boy, best Christmas present ever. Not only having what feels like endless supplies of flour, sugar, macaroni, fruit drink mix, and so much more but also the awesome fun time we had. Thanks Mom and Dad! Woo!

This picture ends the subject of canned goods and leads into our next event, Stone's Birthday party! It's a win-win picture. That is Puff Teddy telling "Dirty Harry Potter" where the dry taters go.We were Harry Potter. What both of you were Harry Potter??!! Why yes, Devon was regular Harry Potter and I was Quidditch Harry Potter. Seriously, there are so many options when you wanna be Harry Potter. So next time you say "I'm gonna be Harry Potter" get ready to be asked "Which version?" Wow could I write Harry Potter any more times!? Yes, Harry Potter.

Now here are all the nieces & nephews in creative costumes.

Tessa Leia and Yoda Stone.Cinderella Sophie painting pumpkins.Kenz was a dead bride. Or "Ex-wife." Yeah, she didn't get the joke. Which is probably a good thing. You shouldn't be subjected to LiLo (Lindsay Lohan) until you're at least 16.This is Carter as that Squid guy from Pirates. Captain Squid? Whatever the name, it was an awesome stume. This is Rubie Crayola.

I apologize to Sebastian for I did not get a picture of him in his costume. He did have this shirt that said "It's my first Halloween, don't scare me!" Ahh it was so tute. Devon however, scared the crap outta him. Sorry Sebs.

Rubie Crayola and Regular Harry Potter. Ahh they both love Stone's birfday!Since the party was mostly outside the children were bound to break out and run down the street. I had to document this. It was adorable how they just wouldn't "Get Back Here!!"
The photo below is the Madsen clan and all our awesome Halloween getups for the bday partay. If you'd like a complete list for what everyone is, please refer to Cessy's post. Yeah, I think I figured out how to put links on my blog. Cross your fingers and hope it works.
Then the actual Halloween night was totally amazin! We all went to my parent's house and handed out candy to kids who I swear were actually my age. We also played Guitar Hero: World Tour! Ow! And by we, I mean all of us.
Here's my mother singing beautifully. And my father also singing beautifully. He even sang that Paramore song where it says "Feels so good" over and over again. He's so emo.On Sunday (today) we all went to Sebastian's baby blessing. He's too awesome!! This is us in Sunday clothes. We all clean up nicely.

Yippee!! Hooray!! That is what our awesome week consisted of. Thanks to everybody who made it all possible.

P.S. Pretty sure there's gonna be a huge space like that other post. I have to be honest and tell you that it takes me like an hour to just figure out how to upload pictures. Blogging is hard. Harumph.
