Loving Kids

I have the most affectionate kids! Here are some pictures from my phone and some of the tender moments!


Mommy and daughter make-up time

Cailyn loving her baby while on walks

Wesley making Wood crack up

The kids giving me a foot massage. No I didn't pay them. Ha!

C says "I promise Wesley acorn lids taste good!"

We even love our chickens!

I know why we don't remember the bad (rough) moments...we don't take many pictures of them. :)

Cailyn's Surgery-Ear Tubes

After several ear infections and lots of fluid behind Cailyn's ears it was time for something to correct her discomfort and her significant hearing loss in her right ear. We first had the surgery scheduled for August 31st but after a well check-up we found out Cailyn had the mouth portion of Foot and Mouth disease therefore it was cancelled. Ugh!

Our day arrived Sept 14th. We woke up at 5am got in the car and we were off. I was shocked at how well she did. Cailyn never fussed once for milk or food. She just went with the flow. She probably wasn't hungry due to the fact she was awake before her normal waking time 7:30AM. We got some pictures before the surgery. She loved entertaining the nurses!

Here is my happy girl! Yes, I had to put her in a bow!

I also kept her busy with crayons and paper. She is like her sister and is an artist!

Picture of mommy and Cailyn before her surgery. Love my girl! The hardest moment was them carrying her away from me towards the OR and her screaming "maw, maw," Talk about painful to the heart!

I was literally in the waiting room for 5 minutes when they called me back. She did great!

She slept a good portion of Friday and was in the best spirits while she was awake. Have I noticed a difference? Yes. She is happier waking up in the AM. She is trying to repeat more of my words (understanding my words helps!) overall she is my happy happy baby!

thank you to all of our family and friends for your thoughts and prayers! Our baby is doing great!

Wesley’s First Day of Pre-K

Today was the day!  Wesley’s first day of Pre-K was today Sept. 10th, 2012. It is amazing to believe this is his last year of preschool. I can’t think about that right now *Scarlett* I will think about that tomorrow. 

If you don’t know, Wesley has a slight aversion to leaving the house.  He just wants to be a hermit and stay home ALL. DAY. LONG! Getting him to leave is like pulling teeth.  When I told him it was time to go it was painful, but not as painful as last week's meet the teacher.  So things are looking up.

Here is my big boy getting ready for his first day.  He looks so confident and handsome!!  My big boy 091112

I just love this big boy!!  Check out his new Spiderman lunchbox!!

Well we got to school and he was still looking confident. Like “ I can do this mom, don’t worry!” Me worry??? Never.


Then we got to his room…and he was holding on to me for dear life. The good news is he didn’t cry.  I pretty much had to drop off and leave QUICKLY. 

Doesn't want to leave

As I left I saw that Wesley was getting some extra hugs and he was in wonderful arms!!


When he got home he said he had a great day and he would go back tomorrow.  haha! His favorite part of the day…Recess!!

As he shirt says “Pre-K Rocks!!”

Call Me Maybe!!

If you watched the Olympics, you listen to the radio you KNOW the song Call me maybe. Lawson LOVES it, McKenna loves it…I even like it.  It has a great beat.  If you don’t know the song, let me…

While we were at the mountains this song was played many times.  Here are so fun family shots of the singing…

So call me…
