It's Been a While...

Okay...I know, I know...I've been absolutely horrible at keeping up with my blog. We have been so super busy over the past 2 months. So, for a quick re-cap, here's what we've been up to for the past 2 months...

The boys have started preschool. They are at First Baptist in Pleasant Grove, and so far it's been pretty good, except for the fact that it's so dang expensive! Trevor is loving it, and Andrew....well, let's just say he's in time-out more times than not when I pick him up. At least 2 or 3 days out of the week, he's sitting in the time out chair when I pick him up. I've accepted the fact that we all have one child that's a handful, and he's definitely mine. He makes Trevor look like an angel...halo and all!

I have started a new job. Yes, after 7 years in the ER I have ventured out. Even though the ER will always be my heart, and I will miss my friends tremendously, I was in desperate need of a change. I am still at Children's Hospital though. I don't think I will ever have the desire to work with adults. Anyways, I am now working as a Nurse Clinician in the Neurology Clinic. I have only been there for 2 weeks, and I absolutely love it. Once I get the hang of everything, it will be even better. All of the people in the department are SO nice and helpful. The 2 doctors that I will be working for are super nice too, and that's a plus : ) I am really excited about it!

Trevor had a tonsilectomy and adenoidectomy last week, so we have been couped up in the house for the past 4 days. I am just about to go nuts. He is doing good, at least while he is medicated, but the minute that Lortab and Motrin start to wear off, he is not fun to be around. So we are alternating meds around the clock. We had a really bad night last night, but for the most part, he has really been a trooper. Considering what his throat looks like, I would be a basket case! Kids are so much tougher than adults!

Our house is still on the market, but hopefully soon we'll get lucky and be able to sell! I have caught the blog up from the last 2 months, and hopefully I won't get this behind again! Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Opening Presents!


He didn't like everyone singing to him! He did like blowing out the candles, though!

Happy Birthday Andrew!

On September 10, my sweet baby turned 2...yes TWO! I cannot believe it has been 2 years since I had this little monkey. He is the busiest, spunkiest, roudiest, sweetest little boy in the world. One minute, I'm ready to tear his butt up, and the next minute he's flashing that precious smile. He is a handle and a half, but I don't know what I'd do without him. Happy Birthday sweet angel. Mommy loves you more than you'll ever know!

Oh Paw Paw!

Leave to my dad to show Trevor some home made entertainment! Of course he wanted to do this over, and over, and over again. The boys always get a kick out of Paw Paw's inventions!

Eating Ribs for Labor Day!

This boy sure was loving some babeque ribs that we had for Labor Day weekend!

My Float!

Well, here she is! My float that I bought at the beginning of the summer. This was the best $70 I think I've ever spent! This is where I spent alot of my time this past summer, of course when I wasn't chasing after my wild kiddos!!

Happy Birthday Madie!!

Sweet little Madie turned 1 last month, and these are some little snap shots from her party!

My Boys...all 3 of them!

Joe was trying to eat some popcorn in peace, but guess what? That's not possible around this house! You always end up with some monkeys hovering over you, wanting to share!

Poor Baby!!

Can I just say that we will not be using sunscreen from Dollar General anymore! One of our many weekends at the lake, I forgot the boys' sunscreen, so I used some the extra that my mom has stocked at her house. Well, as soon as I put it on Andrew's face, his little eyes started watering, and his whole face started swelling, especially his eyes. It was kinda scary, but I gave him some benedryl, and he was soon back to normal! You can't really tell from the pictures, but that's why his little face was so red!

Me and My Buddy

Here are some pictures of Trevor and I fishing at the lake. We were catching brim...and yes, this mamma baits her own worm hooks!!

Fishing with Paw Paw!

Playing at the Park

Silly Stinker!

A Work in Progress....

These are some pictures of Mom and Dad's house in PG. It's actually finished now, and I'll have to take some pictures of the finished product. It's beautiful now, and looks and smells like a brand new house on the inside. Since I've taken these pictures, the yard is cleaned up and a new fence was put up, the back deck has been screened, shutters put up, and the inside is complete. It's just kind of depressing without any trees around... : (

Waterslide Fun!

These pictures are from one day back in August. We went to hang out with Hunter and Madie Syx. As you can tell, the boys absolutely loved it!

Water "Sprouts"

These are the only pictures that I was able to take of Andrew running through the "water sprouts" as Trevor calls them. I turned around for 2 seconds, and he was gone. I found him back behind the bubble tank. Man this kiddo can run fast! He is a master a disappearing acts as well! Have I ever mentioned that he wears me out?

Zoo Trip

This is from one of our many trips to the zoo. I don't take pictures everytime we go, because there's only so many pictures you can take at the zoo! I thought the gorilla in the bottom picture was pregnant, so I took a picture of "her"...I was so excited, I asked a guy that worked there, "hey is that gorilla pregnant?" He said, "I sure hope he isn't!!" I felt like an idiot, but you gotta admit, his belly is a little round!!

Fun Times at the Lake

This is where we have been most of this past summer. We have enjoyed MiMi and PawPaw having a place at the lake, but we don't like them living so far away!!
