Posted by Hello... there are just times i want to scream my head off and go off running the other direction to get away... tonight one of those nights... one name will explain it, well in my life it does {Adam} i love my brother, yes i do, but he is one to push buttons and piss you off until he passes out in laughter... he thinks its funny to make me so worked up and i try and i try to not let him bother me, but then he hits buttons that i have no control over and i just get so mad... i sometimes wish that he would stop and realize how much he's not only hurting me, but hurting our relationship... him doing this and thinking its funny is going to ruin our realtionship.. crash and burn it... He gets into everyone's business whens its not his to even peek at! like for example he started commenting on how i told Amy like a week ago i wanted to take Tucker (our dog) out for walks, yes i still havnt but there is a think called lack of time and lack of money for better leash and shoes, but its not the point its not his place to stick his nose!! STAY OUT! i cant take it anymore im about to break down and cry right now... and here is the only place besides my journal, or talking to Logan, that i can let it all out.. Logan's not here, and i needed a post, so here it is, my life... annoyed by my immature brother, and what pisses me off more is that he can be SO mature and LOVING at times, then act like this and just stomp all over what he had built up... i dont understand how he thinks this is fun or a game... Adam if your reading this IT HURTS and PLEASE stop okay! i have problems confronting people its so hard for me, always has and its been getting better, but its still alot to ask me to do.. so just letting it out here makes me feel better i guess.. anywho ill let you go on your merry little way :) have a good night y'all... and if i have advice for anyone, try and try not to let anyone push you around

Dream house

Posted by Hello I have so many different styles i like in a house, and this is one of them.. mainly location- Alki beach, right on the beach.. i mean when taking the picture i am standing on sand :)... the color is okay, not my fav. but this looks like a wonderful house to have like two young children, and go walking everyday and jogging... something i think would be great.. i love the feel of this house when i saw it, just warm and fun :).. maybe in a few years ill be able to just rent a house that i tolerate and can raise my children in and just call home, but right now... a room in parents house is home and i like much as i complain to logan i like it.. im close to my parents still and able to see them everyday...


Hey you all... im challenging who ever reads this to write about something they regret or wish they would have done sometime in their life. FOr me one thing i regret or wish i had done is ballet as a child. I dont go to ballets or anything, but i love how graceful they are and how strong they are. The dancers have such character and personality. I envy dancers.. i always wish i had gone out and asked my mom for dance classes. i see people on TV dancing or hear about something someone learned at dance class and i admire that person so much more... i think its something im always going to want to do, and if my little girls or even boys wants to dance or anything they want to in their lives im going to encourage them 100% and if they want to quite i only have one rule give it two months, you hate it, then you can stop, but i want them to keep trying though... i took piano lessons and i regret quitting after only a year, but i still know the tricks of the trade i was taught and i dink around sometimes on the piano, but i just hope that my children try to stick with it and just have fun with their passion. So im challenging you to go out and be honest and write what you wish you would have done in your life that you regret or wish you had done, or somethign you want to do in the future... have fun :)

Campin Fun

This weekend was the first weekend Logan and i had together without having to be anywhere or do anything... and we really wanted to go out camping, but since i dont get off until 6 and he wasnt supose to be home until 8, we decieded to camp in the back yard :) it was alot of fun, even though we were both off work by 5! lol... but we still just stayed in the back yard and had alot of fun, then Saturday we went to the montebello's neighborhood garage sale, to say howdy to his dad and step-mom.. then we headed off to the farmers market.. Logan has never been down there, and i had to get him down there... he enjoyed it, we got beef jerky YUMMY! and then we bought like the best snowcone and walked to the water and went up the tower and ate our snowcone just talking and looking around. it was an overall wonderful weekend. Then at church on sunday it was all in Spanish with english translation (our ward is the host ward for the spanish speaking) so this sunday was extra special... the spirit was so strong and so warm... it was so wonderful to have that feeling again and just sit there and listen... then my new calling, Nursry Assistant... i get to play aith the little kids for two hours, and in all honesty it is SO much fun! i had a good time and im happy that i am able to have this calling!! anywho i better be going! talk to you later :)

Turned out Cool

Posted by Hello This turned out alot cooler then i thought... this is from the Point Defience Zoo and Aquarim in Tacoma... this was through glass and i thought it wouldn't even look right.. and it totally surprised me.. anyway the zoo was awesome Addison and i went and had a great time and really enjoyed our selves!


Fernanda Posted by Hello This year we were blessed with the great experience of having an exchange student live with us for the school year. Fernanda, whom is from Brazil, has become close with our family.. she has been gone for almost two weeks while on vaction with a trip through the program which she came here through. She'll be back in a few days, but then two days later she is gone again to Brazil this time... it was hard explaining to maegan, my 3yr old neice who adores Fernanna (as she says it) but explaining to her on Sunday when she asked "wheres fernnana" i had to tell her that she was on a trip, she'll be back soon, but then we'll have a party then she will have to go home to Brazil. Maegan looked crushed like she was loosing her best friend. It was sad, but i know through emails and everything that we can still stay in touch with one another.. this year has been full of changes for me, and i wish i would have grown even closer with Fernanda, but i think why i kept my guard up a little is that i knew she was going to leave, and when that day came i didnt want to miss her SO much and lose my bestfriend... if i had to do the year over again i would have let my guard down and taken more oppunities to go do stuff or just sit and talk.. but all in all i hope she had a great time living with my family.. they're a great bucnch of nuts :) (LOVE YOU GUYS) so keep in touch Fernanda!!

My Dad

Posted by Hello Fathers day is tomorrow and i just want to express how much i love my Dad. He has always been there for me no matter what... and i know if i were to ever get into trouble, he'd be there no matter what still... He's strict, which i HATED, but now i understand and love and i know i will be the same way with my own children some day... being strict i use to think was being mean and that he never wanted me to have any fun. but know i realize he was protecting me from the world, he was helping me grow up in saftey and have a great childhood, which i did. My dad would take us kids anywhere and everywhere, camping, swiming, fishing, to Mt. Rainer, to the Ape Caves, to Huricane Ridge for sledding.. in all honesty my dad is a big kid himself... which i admire... he loves to have a good time and play around.. and seeing him with his grandkids just proves it.. he still gets down on knees and hands and plays horsey, and lets the kids help him with something that broke, or has the kids show him what to do on the computer... he is always looking out for the best for everyone, worked and still works long days to make for the family.. he is strong as a brick and soft as a teady bear... he wont admit it to just anyone lol... but he is.. he is a loving husband... through thick and thin he has been hand and hand with my mom.. and the same the other way around... he is a wonderful Son who calls him mom every day to say hello and just see how she is doing.. he is a great brother to his 7 siblings... all around my Dad is perfect... thats all i can say really... my dad, Jim, is a perfect father whom i would never trade for the world!!

Happiness comes in different shapes, styles, things... anything can bring happiness to one and not to another. Happiness is comstumized to each person that it is going to... For most people just talking to somene isnt happiness, but to me.. it is. Just laying in bed and rolling over and start talking to Logan about something that he doesnt even care about, but yet he sits there and listens to the whole thing and then even carrys a conversation on about it, to me that is happiness... it makes me happy knowing that he tries to be envloved in my life.. even if im just talking to him about some show i saw on TV or if i tell him about a new scrapbook thing i made.. he is there supporting me and listening and i LOVE that! Thank you Logan :)... and in return i will forever do the same for you! every baseball game, every thing you want to talk about my eyes and ears are open! i love you :)

I was thinking baout htis the other day, and i dont know.. i guess i want to put more of my toughts into this website, afterall its through my eyes right? My faith, my religion, my belief... all meaning the same thing.. I am a christian, i am a member of the Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints. I am a "mormon" as people have called us over the years. And i'm proud of who i am and of my family and i of the choices i have made in my life. Some people might be ashamed or embarasse of their relgion (example, catholic, or muslim) but i want to shout it out that i dont care what other people think, i dont want to sound stuck up right now, its not what im directing towards, but i live my life knowing that i am not ashamed of who i am. I'm Laura McGee... clumsy, loud, funny, talented, curios, oblivios, loving, spunky, and just ME...i guess what im trying to say is that no matter what you are or who you are or where you live.. always be proud of who you are

He always puts everyone before him, and makes sure everyone is safe and happy. He will go out of his way to make sure that things go right and things are taken care of. He's strick and i use to HATE that with a passion, but now i realize that it was only for my best intrest. He wants all his kids to be safe, and he knows whats out there and that the world is unsafe... He's one of a kind, perfect and loving DAD! My mom.. a wonderful person.

I'm glad that Amy married him... for only having one brother in law.. im sure glad its him!... Adam's wife Carrie- I may say i have one sister, but there are two.. Carrie fits into our family like nothing other.. She's a great person to talk to about anything! i look up to her spiritually so much and if i have a question she is able to answer it. I worked with her for 6 months recently and that gave me such a better understanding of who she is.. and im glad that i worked with her.. she's a down right hard worker and a loving wife... she's caring and full of compassion and when she has children.. she is going to be one of the best mommys out there!! I'm glad that we have grown closer.. she's a great soul, person, friend, and sister. Then there comes the little ones.. Neices and Nephews.. from oldest to youngest..
