I love love love my toes, I could look at them all day!! Ok not actually my toes, but the paint on them. I went and had them painted today by the so very talented Meg Parry. It has been so long since they have been done, I was due. Look how dang cute!!! I know you are jealous. Thanks to Meg what would I do without you, Well have not very cute toes. Yay, I love them.

Abbie turns 6

For Abbie's B-day I told her we could invite three of her closest friends over, have pizza and cake, then drive up to Justice to shop. She was so excited. She invited her cousins Ella and Sydney and her friend Jaqlyn. They had so much fun, and all got to pick out a shirt and little toy at Justice. They could have cared less about the shirt, they were all about the toys. Silly Girls!!! Here is a slide show of the day. I have to say it was a lot of fun. Happy Birthday Abbs!!!


A couple weekends ago Chad decided it would be fun to take the kids to the zoo!!! I, however, thought of quite a few other things that would be oh, so much more fun. Well, I went along with his plan deciding that the kids would enjoy it and of course that is why we do things like this. It turned out to be a pretty ok thing to do (after Tanner got to see the reptiles) Abbie loved it, and Lucas wasn't to bad, thanks to Chad. He is such a good Dad. We met up with Matt (chad's bro.) and lizzie (matt's little girl) she is soooo cute and Matt is soooo cute with her!!! I did enjoy it, but was ready to leave too. So here are some pictures I took while we were there. Enjoy!!!!

Update on Lucas

Just thought I would update the picture of Lucas' hand. It is all healed now, the picture in this entry was taken about 1 week and 1/2 after he was burned. It is still a little pink but you wouldn't even know it happened. Yap, it is cuz I am such a good mom and kept it clean and bandaged every day. Hey, I had to make up for the idiotic move I pulled of letting it happen in the first place.

I am the worst mom ever!!!!

Ok so maybe I am not the worst mom ever, but I think at times I come in close to 2nd. I guess I should look on the bright side and realize this is the first curling iron burn on any of the three children. I think that is pretty good!! Anyway I was getting Abbie ready for her second day of Kindergarten, she wanted her hair curled, which is pretty normal, I curl her hair a lot. After I was finished I thought " I better take this curling iron in on my bathroom counter to Lucas isn't tempted to grab it." That was my first prompting. So I did, and all three of my kids had to follow me into my bathroom while I was doing this. I kept the curling iron on cuz I was going to curl my hair too. So we walked out of the bathroom, Tanner and Abbie followed, I yelled for Lucas to come too. Ya right I know he is only 10 months old but he always follows me. As I walked to the kitchen to get breakfast going for the two going to school I thought, " I should probably just go pick him up just in case he doesn't follow me" yes, second prompting. Then I heard him crying and I knew what had happened. You guessed it, he had pulled the curling iron down and grabbed it. Ahhhh I am so stupid. My mom says Jaimi the holy ghost was trying to tell you something. I know mom but I had to get the kids fed before they were going to school. Well, I think they ate. I can't remember much after that except a screaming baby and trying to hold his hand under the cold water. Chad came to the rescue and held him while I ran the kids to school, hold back tears so my kids wouldn't get upset before school starts. They did fine, Abbie actually asked if Tanner could take her to class. I was lucky!!! Anyway, I took him to the doctor a 1 1/2 hours later. Yes I had to make an appt. Thanks to Mom for helping me hold it together. Turns out it isn't as bad as it could have been, it is a 2nd degree and we just have to clean it and wrap it everyday. So now I know what happens when you ignore the promptings of the Holy Ghost, won't do that again. He is fine now and besides looking like a clubbed hand he gets around just fine.

First Days of School!!!

Abbie's first day of Kindergarten. It was pretty uneventful too. She woke up early!!! An unusual thing for her to do. She was soo excited. The best thing was that there was no screaming while the hair was getting done, I know it doesn't look like much but blow drying her hair is a process. She was so excited about her back pack, that she wore it to school to meet her teacher to do her assessment. So I had to take a picture of it. That is the reason for the different outfits. I know what you were all thinking!!! She can't make her mind up about clothes already!!! Nope, she knew exactly what she wanted to wear. When we got to school she found her seat sat down and said " Bye Mom!" wow I high tailed it out of there before she could think about what was going on and decide that she didn't want me to leave her. Sweet!! Now if I could just get Lucas to take a nap!! :)

Tanner's first day of 2nd grade went with out a glitch!!! He is a pro now. It was such a good morning Chad got up helped him get ready and I couldn't believe how early he was ready. We actually sat around for ten min. watching t.v. He wanted to go early so he could have a chance to play in Jilayne's class room. Sorry Jilayne!! But even better what do you think of the old school shirt? I love it, it reminds me of back in the day. Luckily Tanner liked it too, since I just bought it hoping he would think it is cool. So he wanted me to take a picture of just his shirt, so here it is!!!!
