Newest "Problem"

video

Yep after a week (or maybe two) Abigail has offically mastered thumb sucking. Yes. I COMPLETELY tried to stop this... And am going to keep at it. But it is way cute! I wish I had the camera a few seconds earlier... She was looking at her hands and really discovering them. It was so freakin adorable. Man she's growing up fast!

I'm Done.

I completely give up. This has probably been one of the WORST weeks of my life. Honestly.

Friday my dad went into the hospital.

Saturday I had to rush to the hospital because my dad was unresponsive. Spent the whole day at the hospital wondering if he was going to make it through the night.
Saturday night woke up all night with nightmares of my dad dying in the hospital0

Sunday spent the whole day at the hospital.

Monday Emily got sick with the flu in the middle of the night
Tuesday spent the day taking care of sick Emily. My dad got off life support and I could go to the hospital to see how he was so i had to worry from home. (since emily was sick. didn't want to get him sick)

Wednesday Emily's all better (or so it appears) Go down to Abigails appointment. Get her brace taken off (though there is a chance (very slim) that she'll need to go back in it when we are able to xray her in a few months) drive home and when we're almost home, have the car break down on the freeway with all three kids in the car during rush hour. Yes. EXTREMELY scary!

Wednesday Night: Wake up all night because Abigail keeps waking up for some reason (i didn't discover that it was because her feet got cold until 8 thursday morning)

Thursday: Get woken up at 3 in the morning with Emily sick still. We finally figure out it's Abigails toes that keep getting cold. Finally get her to sleep. Emily wakes up.. and finds out that she can't go to preschool again.. HAS A HUGE meltdown waking up the OTHER two girls. And so I've been battling THREE grumpy kids. And then I call the Auto Repair guy... and he informs me that my van can't be fixed.

Yeah. I'm done. Yes, things could be worse... And probably will get worse. I quit. I'm done.

Honestly I'm so stressed/tired/emotional that I don't know where to go from here.

Safety Weekend at Lowe's

We like to go to Lowe's on saturdays (the second and fourth) to do the crafts they have for free. I was really excited about being able to make Firetrucks.. and when we got there, we got a plesant surprise! There was a fun little safety workshop kind of thing. We were able to go inside a police car (the officer assured me it was a new car that had hardly been used yet, and also got sanatized before he brought it)

Did you know that ambulances have built in child car seats? We found that out. I actually have always wondered what they would do if a parent had a child while in an accident or something like that.

Emily's First Field Trip

Emily's class had their first field trip two weeks ago (yes, i'm that behind) It was just to a little park down the road. It was a field trip to help learn how to use the bus! But it was to a park, so it was majorly fun for all the kids. Abby, Hannah, and I met them there. Her is this the bus pulling up.

Hannah fits right in! (the boy she is sharing a seat with also was a sibling of a class member. They both fit right in)



Emily climbing up with a few of her friends!
It was a fun field trip! And i felt so blessed to be able to be a stay at home mom and be able to go with her!





Emily's Birthday Shopping Date.

Last Tuesday Auntie Pammy and Auntie Lynda took Emily (and Hannah) on a special birthday date since Pam was going to be in Utah for her bday. This is what they came home with!! :-)
Just what she wanted! A new (and her first) real bike! With matching helmet and pads!

She had sooooo much fun. Thanks Aunties!!
