The joy of a daughter

who knows her anatomy, lol. Ben took the kids to wal-mart to get some groceries and Kaitlen turn to Ben and said,"do you see my boobies?" ( i guess there was a lady standing near by that could hear this conversation)- Ben said no :os.. Kaitlen then says "do you see my nipples?"....... i would have loved to snap a pic of Ben at that moment :o)

cut and color

I went last night to the Regis salon to get the gray out of my hair and the layers put back in. It was interesting how he did the layers. He would take a section of my hair, twist it and then hold the scissors at an angle and cut. After the color and the cut he put my hair in rollers an put me under the dryer. When he took the curlers out and fluffed and sprayed it, it looked very cute!!!!!! but all that is to much work for me so today it was the same ol' curly hair. Oh i forgot, he did the dark brown, but also surprised me by adding a highlight so were the sun hits it it would shine lighter. It turned out good.

Thomas was baptized

On Sunday Thomas and about 6 other youth from Church were Baptized. It was a very nice ceremony and afterward the church had a potluck. The food was great. It's funny because Thomas was baptized on the same day as Cody just 6 years later, April 9th 2000/2006. I dont have pictures because my camera is broken, but the church did take pictures so I'll post those when I get them.

A hard day for Ben

Saturday was a tough day for Ben. He and his 3 brothers had to go clean out their moms house. It sold and they had to divide everything up between the 4 of them. Not only that but that would be the last time he'd walk in her house. He said her bottle of water was still beside her bed and one still in the living room next to her chair. Its where we've had our last two Christmas's and Thanksgivings. Where Ben made her her last two birthday dinners, Prime rib. Where the kids would take there bubble baths and eat Oreo cookies. Were little miss Kaitlen and mathew would jump off the coffee table with their Nana saying," get ready, get set, jump!" how many grandparents would let there grandkids do that. If it brought joy to the kids then it brought joy to her. The kids and i couldnt be there with him and i feel bad we werent there to support him. One of the things ben brought home was her bed with her bedding. we set it up in Codys room and it'll be Cody's bed. I was working and Ben brought the sheets over and had me smell them and they still smelled like her. Ben and Cody slept in the bed that night. we will have to wash the sheets and then we wont have that smell ever again. It was very comforting to smell that. ETA: I forgot about the iron that Ben also brought home. Back in Ca. i didnt have an iron to iron bens uniforms so i borrowed Betty's which was also her moms iron. I'm guessing she got after her mom passed. So i was always extra careful with it. Well, i never returned it to her untill we moved from Ca. to Ar. So when saw I had the iron back. I immediatly thought I got to call betty and tell her HA HA i got your iron again ....................................... let me just say that friggin sucked!!! i actually forgot she passed away. It wasnt the first time i had forgotten, but it's such a shock in that split second of realising it. Ben would call her several times a day and we always called her and told her when the kids did something funny or said something funny or after each dr's appt. It's hard to change your habits.

Started a pregnancy blog!!

I wanted to keep the family happenings seperate from my pregnancy since towards the end of the pg it can consume most of the posts and crowd out the other kids. So i started a pregnancy blog. there is a link to it in my Links in the sidebar.
