Found an old friend

Cris an I met at the Cowboy Boogie immediatly became friends. After Ben and I got engaged we lost contact. Well, last week i decided to look her daughter up on myspace because she has what I would call a unique name. Sure enough I found her and emailed her. She 18 now, she was 8 the last time I saw her. She let her mom know that I contacted her. Here Is Chris and I 10 yrs ago at the Boogie. (Thats also were Ben and I met, LOL)

Poor Abigail

Poor little thing. She has been running a fever since she got up Sunday. We took her to the Dr today and he says it looks like its viral. She is congested and she gags when she nurses, sometimes she throws up from it. He said her throat was red. i bet it's swollen too. Boy she got mad at him when he looked in her throat. She was suppose to have her 6 month well check tomorrow, but it was pushed until 6-10. He said he normally works the sick side but he'll come over to the well side to do her well check plus a kinda followup appt. If she isn't getting better in a couple days and is still running a fever then he said they'll cath her and check her urine for a UTI. :( boy, I hope she starts felling better.
Oh, the chunky monkey weighed 19.4

Memorial Day

Please stop and remember why we all have Monday off from work. For those who have served, those who have died, and those still serving. For my family it's my Dad, my brother Michael, my neice Ashley, my nephew Kevin, Bens Dad, my Brother-in-law Brian and my Brother-in-law David .
All Gave Some - Billy Ray Cyrus
I knew a man called him Sandy Kane
Fewfolks even knew his name
But a hero was he
Left a boy, came back a man
Still many just don't understand
About the reasons we are free
I can't forget the look in his eyes
Or the tears he cries
As he said these words to me
All gave some and some gave all
And some stood through for the red, white and blue
And some had to fall
And if you ever think of me
Think of all your liberties and recall
Some gave all
Now Sandy Kane is no longer here
But his words are oh so clear
As they echo through out our land
For all his friends who gave us all
Who stood the ground and took the fall
To help their fellow man
Love your country and live with pride
And don't forget those who died
America can't you see
All gave some and some gave all
And some stood through for the red, white and blue
And some had to fall
And if you ever think of me
Think of all your liberties and recall
Some gave all
And if you ever think of me
Think of all your liberties and recall, yes recall
Some gave all
Some gave all

Yeah Sammy!!!!!!

I love our dog. She doesn't let strangers come up to our house. Which happens ALOT out here. Someone showed up to sell us frozen steaks and he wouldn't get out of the car because of her and then today i heard a car door and then Sammy jumped up and started barking REALLY loud. The guy practically ran back to the car. The driver hadn't gotten out and she was laughing at the guy. They were both dressed up and he had stuff in his hands. I'm thinking they were Jehovah's witnesses. They show up at our house several times a yr. That would be nice if they'd quit coming. Yeah Sammy for protecting her family.

This is my sisters dog Tank. He is 10 y/o and his age caught up with a while ago, but now there is no stopping it. They are going to take him to the vet tomorrow to have him put down. :o( He is deaf and has been for a while. He falls alot and is peeing blood with clots and blood in his poops. He is a great dog. I havent seen him in yrs but when we all lived in Ca and you walked in you'd have to give him a hug or he'd follow you around untill you did. He acted human. He could say "I love You" I am so not kidding. It was amazing, I hear him over the phone. Just the other night he was 'talking'. I feel so bad for them. To the kids Tank has always been there, as far back as they can remember.
I have a picture of Tank playing with our dog PJ who is 10 yrs old too. I'll look for it sometime this week. We took PJ over for a playdate, LOL.
Tina, Brian, Brandon and Alex, Im sorry about Tankers

Ugly huh? wonder if it was that ugly before going through Matthew. It's a 1995 penny.

the joys of being a mom

Matthew finally went poop last night and i got the lovely job of looking for the penny. It was actually there. We now have the penny that Matthew choked on. Over the last day and a half i tried to convince myself that maybe it wasn't a penny, maybe he wasn't choking *that* bad. But he was truly choking and it was a penny. So i let my brain stop there and just be very glad that that i was digging through poop.
Soooooo, i know your asking yourself "where's the picture?"............ soon, I'm just to lazy to take the pic and upload it.

Had to do the Heimlich on Matthew

Last night Ben was putting Abbies swing together (it finaly got here) and she was sitting next to me on the couch and Matthew had gone behind Bens recliner where he hides to go poop. Well he comes out from behind the chair choking and it wasn't the gagging on something whack him on the back kinda thing. I hopped up and grabbed him and did the Heimlich twice and it dislodged it and he threw up. He swallowed what ever he was choking on. We asked him what he had in his mouth and he said a penny. I went and looked behind the chair to see what else there was and there was 2 more pennies, and a lid to a water bottle and a small alan wrench set. It was scary and I am ever so greatful for the Heimlich.

oh Abbie

Tonight we were going out to dinner but we were ahead of schedule so we stopped off at Build a Bear and Code, K, Matthew and Abbie picked out their stuffed animals. Well Ben picked Abbies. C got a snow leopard, K got Shrek, M after MUCH thought got a white dog (he named doggy) ben got Abigail a bunny with long ears that she likes to suck, yummmm. So we get to dinner and Kaitlen gives A a drink of her tea through her straw and would you belive she sucked it up through the straw twice!! She can also sit up for a fair amount of time and correct her balance. Boy, she's growing up too fast. The straw thing just gets me. oh, one of her top teeth should be in soon. What the heck?! a 5 month old should not have 3 teeth, yikes.

Just a swingin'

Little Miss Abigail loves her swing and I blame Ben...LOL... When she was like a week or two he held her between his two hands under her armpits and swung her to and fro untill she fell asleep. So we went and got her a cheap swing, she's our last so we're just waisting money anyway so get the cheapest. WEELLLLL, she loves her swing. She uses it several times aday. SHe is to big for her swing. So what do we have to do??? Get a bigger swing, one that goes up to 30#'s. Here it is. We should get it in a couple days. All of our kids had swings and she's the only one to like it. Thomas had my neices hand me down. Cody had his cousins hand me down. Kaitlen had a travel size one so cody couldnt accidently knock it over. Matthew used Kaitlens and when he was done with it we gave it to the church. It's funny because we had to borrow it to take with us to Vegas so A could have a swing to swing in. Oh, SHe's to big for that one too. What a moose. (a sweet moose)
