My Boys

I was reminded today I have some good boys. I had to take the boys with me to my Bible study. Kaden said please and thank you and was such a gentleman.

I did have to leave early because it was during naptime and Karson was ready to go to sleep.

Tonight Tim watched the boys so I could get a manicure. I really needed it. I was able to get away and come back refreshed and ready to put the boys to bed.

The boys were both asleep at 9:15pm.

Heading to bed... Goodnight

I started out today knowing I packed too much into one day. The boys and I went to the grocery store. I had a feeling half way through I should just head to the checkout when Kaden said he was ready to go home. I should have gone with that but only two times since Karson was born have I been tempted to just leave a buggy and go home and one of those was today. Everything made since when we left because both boys were silent when I pulled out of the parking lot and I looked back and they were both asleep. It was only 11:30am so nap time was a little early today.

This afternoon I took Kaden to get his hair trimmed and we had to waite an hour and fifteen minutes after our appointment time. I told myself I would stay and wait as long as the boys were doing ok. Karson slept most of that time and woke up to eat and did fine the rest of the time. Kaden played with his speed racer toys.

Kaden did much better this time he only started crying about half way through when his hair was cut around the ears and the back of his neck. He is getting to know Sherri. When we were done the boys and I headed to the coffee shop at the salon which is really cool.

So now we are home and I am about to have both boys to sleep. I am looking forward to watching Lost.

Bad Blogger

I know I'm a bad blogger I haven't been blogging like I should. Today I have been on the phone all morning for the Nursery.

I'm very excited about taking on the Nursery Ministry. Tonight is my first night.

Karson was so fussy last night one moment he would be making his baby noises and the next just start crying and just mad. I tried for around 3 hours to get him to sleep. I usually just rock him until he is sleepy and then just lay him in his bed and he goes to sleep on his own. I gave him some Teething Tablets.. An hour later orejel... and finally at 10pm I put him in his swing and turned out the lights and he went right to sleep and slept 9 hours. I think he is teething because he is chewing on one side, slobbering on everything and attacking anything that comes near his mouth. Yes I mean attacking. Yesterday Kaden got close to his face and he grabbed his hair on both sides and tried to bite his face. He is a strong little guy.

Home Sweet Home

We just got home from a weekend trip to Dallas. I am so happy to be home.. It was a good trip but I feel like we have been gone all week.

Unpacking and getting everything ready for Church tomorrow.

I had such a great time even though I have been fighting a cold. It is very refreshing to get away from all technology.... Tim planned a wonderful trip for us and I have found I really love to camp.

Beavers Bend is such a beautiful place.. It is hard to believe that only two hours away there are mountains.
Sunday we set up camp and got some dinner at the camp cafe. Kaden spent most of that time feeding the squirrels.
We got back and made a fire but the boys were tired and the Raccoons started coming out. I mean right up to you and looking for food so I stayed in and put the boys to bed.

Monday: Tim's Birthday. We had to go to town to get food and stoped for lunch and got some good Mexican food. Monday afternoon we went to ride the train but we found out it only runs on the weekends. So I took a nap with Karson in the air conditioning and Tim took Kaden to the park to play. Tim wanted a steak for his Birthday so we went to the local steakhouse.

Yesterday we had so much fun. Kaden spent most of the morning throwing rocks in the water. Before lunch we went to the stream and nature center. I actually watched a snake shed its skin in a cage of course. After lunch Tim went and gathered fire wood and I took the boys to the park.

Before dinner we went on a nature walk. For dinner we went to the cafe again and fed the squirrels there had to be over a hundred just grabbing the food. After dinner Tim made a great campfire and we made smores. Kaden took one bite and threw his in the fire. Last night Tim set up a perimeter of lights around the camp so the raccoons would not bother me and we have found the raccoons really do not like light and stayed away. We only saw a few and they didn't come very close.

This morning I was very sad to pack up, but its good to be home.

Doing laundry and getting ready to pack for our quick weekend trip.

Today is our 6 year anniversary.

Happy Anniversary Sweetie !!!!!

I will miss you today.....

Rough Day

I thought about it yesterday. Should I get my last dental procedure done when I am already under the weather, but decided to do it to get it over with.

First let me say I had to have twice the shots I had last time.

This morning the pain hit. I wasn't good for anything. This afternoon I got both boys to nap at the same time. That helped so much. But when I woke up I realized my tong is still numb. I called the dentist and was told not to worry and if it continues through Monday to call again.

Tonight we ate at Roadhouse. I got shrimp instead of a steak. It was good but it didn't feel right eating seafood at a steakhouse.

Tonight Kaden, Karson, and I are all sick with a cold. Karson is having trouble staying asleep tonight. Tim finally had the great idea of letting him sleep upright so his cold wouldn't bother him so much. It is working.

Tim leaves tomorrow for Dallas to attend a worship workshop and is bring back a RV for our road trip. I am so excited this is our first RV trip.

Big weekend coming up. Saturday I have a Birthday party and a Wedding to go to and it is our 6 year Anniversary.

Sunday after Church we leave for Beavers Bend Oklahoma.

Monday is Tim's Birthday

Fun Fun Fun
We need to get away and I am happy to get away from the TV and Internet and spending some quality time with the Family.

I woke up this morning with a sore throat. I am also tired and weak. Karson didn't have a good night he woke up every few hours and didn't want to eat just creid and has also cried all morning. Karson doesn't really do this, he is not himself. Yea sounds like a ear infection, but hoping for teething. Kaden has been a trooper, very helpful. So this afternoon we have an appoinment with the doctor. I just looked at my calender and this is the third week we have made a trip to the doctor.

I did have a good Mother's Day. After church we went to Johnny Cace's. I wanted something different. They have the best crab cakes. When we got home Kaden, Karson and I took a good long nap.

Kaden was so cute. Yesterday about every 10 minutes he would look at me and in a very sweet voice say "Happy Mothers Day". This was the first year he has done that without coaching.

do ya know ?

From my favorite show Rob and Big. It doesn't start till about 35 sec into the clip. This makes me laugh evertime.

Went to a Hitchin

When you get a wedding invitation and it is referred to as a Hitchin, you have to wear boots.

Saturday night I went to my Uncle's wedding. My wonderful husband Tim watched Kaden so I could go.

I had gotten boots for the boys and myself. It was so much fun and I really enjoyed the time with my family. I didn't leave till 10:00pm because my family would not let Karson go. Do you blame them.. He is such a cutie....

Kaden had his boots ready but due to being contagous he had to stay home..

Scarlett Fever

This sickness sounds so horrible but today I found out it isn't that bad anymore. It was 50 to 60 years ago because there was not a treatment for it.

Last night I was getting Kaden ready for bed and noticed he had a rash on his cheeks, neck, arms, belly and back.

He also had a fever and said his throat hurt.

First thing this morning I got him into the doctor and our little Kaden has Scarlett Fever.

Kaden is Quarantined to the house for 3 days and everything has to be washed.

Because of all the kids he has been around the past week. If you are a parent of one of them. I asked the doctor about it and he did not become contagious till yesterday.

I did it...

Our morning started off with a Tornado Warning, we took cover in our bathroom. The sirens stoped so we watched the weather on TV and were told a few minutes later to take cover again.
Oh how I love Texas.
Kaden said " I am glad the tomato is gone"
This afternoon I did it. Kaden has a Mohawk.
Let me just go back a few months

Kaden's last hair cut when the stylist was using a razor on the back of his neck cut him and asked why he was crying so much. So since then he has not wanted his hair cut. So I decided to take him to Salon Pink where I go. I also knew Sheri would do a good job.

Right after she started cutting his hair he started crying which led to throwing up on me. So when I left I was covered in hair and throw up. But I think the end results was worth it and after a few times there he should be fine.

Tomorrow I am getting Kaden's hair cut. I am really leaning toward tring a mohawk. Not the kind that are way up in the air just a little one. I think they are so cute on little boys. I keep going back and forth on this. My dislikes are:

- He doesn't really dress like a kid with a mohawk.
- Am I going to far with my child.
