borderline obsessive

okay so I'm sorry but pretty much I am teetering on the edge on obsession here. I have read the twilight series...THREE times now! This last week I read them so that I could brush up before sat at midnight when I will be standing in line with all of the other crazies to buy Breaking Dawn, much to my Husbands embarrassment. I don't even care, I'm totally hooked and I will be on pins and needles all week waiting to find out what happens. Tell me I'm not the only one.

Halen Gola

So I'm sorry but I just had to post this because I don't want to forget and I sorta use this as a journal. When I was younger I used to live with my Aunt Tammie during the summers and work and help her and Uncle Loren with their twins. The kiddos had this imaginary friend they called stewman dinkston - oh yes! And I was just thinking the other day that none of my kids have ever had one - at least not that they have mentioned, until tonight! Parker was taking something to the trash for me and he was talking outside and I asked him what he was doing and he said "oh I was just talking to my back yard friends" So of course I looked back there because we don't know the people who live behind us and Parker talks to everyone but there was nobody there and he said "my pretend friends" and I said "Oh what are their names?" ..." Halen Gola" .... Priceless.

Dirty Bird

This little girl is going to kill me! seriously! First of all she has more hair than I know what to do with and let's just be honest here I am not the best at the whole "cute girl hair" thing in the first place. But I try...daily. So we got her all ready today and of course within a few hours of getting dressed and hair done I hear them outside and Parker is hysterical - never a good sign when it comes to Brinlee... She was out playing in the dirt with kaden and decided it would be fun to throw the dirt... on herself. Parker was on the ground, not so much. I took pictures and then threw her in the tub and after two scrub downs - she still has sand and dirt in her hair, nice.

I don't know if you can see but there is some serious dirt in those parts!

a face only I could love!

Happy Birthday to Parker boy.

I remember the day Parker was born like it was yesterday! I was on cloud nine. I didn't even sleep after delivery I just wanted to hold him and stare at him. He has been such a blessing to us and although we are getting into the sassy stage we still love his guts! I felt so bad about all of the yucky stuff that happened on his actual birthday that I was excited to celebrate on the 4th. We went over to Mom and Dads and had a BBQ with Family and set off some fireworks and of course watched Parker open his showering of gifts from his Grandparents, aunts/uncles/and cousins. He really made out like a bandit with power tools and everything! He had a blast and it was good to get outside and enjoy the day. Happy Birthday Bud we love you.

sad news.

So we have had a pretty rough week but I thought I would post this just so that I don't have to explain fifty million times. I went to my doc for my first ultrasound on monday and she couldn't see the baby - so she said maybe we are just off on dates so she had me have my blood drawn to check my levels. They were good which would explain why I was still so sick and feeling very pregnant still. But she said that with numbers that high we should be able to see a fetal heartbeat. She had them run again on wed just to make sure and they hadn't gone up enough and so wed night late I had to go in for a D&C. Needless to say we are pretty sad but I have to say that I truly have the best husband in the world and an amazing support system of friends and family and I am doing very good. Anyways, I am not sure how you handle telling people this stuff but I figured I would need to explain.
