Questions Answered

We are going to answer all the questions on here that everyone is asking:)

1- YES we are expecting our third child
2- The Due date is around January 20, 2010
3- Yes I am sick, but so far it is just nausea, so we are crossing our fingers that it doesn't get worse like the past two, my goal is to always have food in the tummy:)
4- We are not really hoping for a boy or a girl, I know many of you guys are hoping for a girl, but if we have a boy we are actually really good with that. (We have all the stuff you need:)

I think that is all the questions, but if I missed one feel free to ask and Thank you for everyones response and concern! Our kids are so lucky to have the love they have from all of our family and friends!

Brody Singing

Brody loves to sing in the car, here is a video trying to catch him doing it. The problem is once you look at him, he will quit

Memorial Weekend


Great trip down in Torrey, so Allen could go turkey hunting, rained Saturday morning so he never got out hunting, but we had a great time hiking the canyons, then driving down a different road and enjoying the mountains! The boys probably loved swimming the most at the indoor pool!


Hanging with Cousins

There was the really cool "pioneer registry" we were able to see their names they carved in when they came through. Unfortuantly some disrespectful rude people have felt the need to carve their names in also which ruins it, but still cool to see



We also saw the Fremont Indian Polygraphs (spelled right?) Which was really cool to look at, unfortuantly I didn't get a picture of it.
Great trip lots of fun and I didn't have a total panic attack hiking in some of the narrower areas.

New Nephew!!

My little sister had her baby, he is such a stud!!! My boys are very excited to having a new cousin, unfortuantely I don't have any pictures of them holding him, they weren't able to see him for about a week after he was born and I think Kristen has some pictures on her camera.


Here is of Allen and I

My mom is holding him, she came over and held him while me and Allen had probably the best and last naps of our lives.... Okay maybe exaggerating but it was a good nap, Thanks Mom!! (and much needed as he woke up every hour that night screaming his lungs off because he wasn't getting enough food)

April Showers brings... Soccer

So Brody begged me to let him play soccer this year, he was so excited when I found a league that he was old enough to play (barely by two weeks) He met his coach a week ago and HATED IT, they were suppose to do a team of 3 and 4 year old and 5 &6, but they didn't have enough sign up so they combined 3, 4 and 5 and his luck is he is on a team with a lot of 5 year olds. I couldn't get him to go to practice or anything and was planning on taking him out after this first game. He said his teammates didn't like him and was very intimidated. When Brody visited Grandpa and Grandma J this week he invited them to come see him play and that is where I discovered the secret.... BRODY LOVES ATTENTION. It started raining right before his game (and finished right after, talk about luck) but Brody ran out on the field and had a grin the whole time. He even ran in the right direction a couple times, but he was so busy checking every few minutes that we were all watching he missed the soccer ball going right by him a few times. (He even chewed Colby out for leaving and playing for a while) After the game he was sure to mention that he wanted Grandpa and Grandma there next week then he goes and Lexi's Dad ...... actually Travis and Lexi we started laughing so he didn't get to finish the list. As long as he has fun the whole point is getting him around other kids and playing so we will keep him in.
Getting all excited to go play (from the camera phone so blury)

Wow

Brody is very ANTI potty training right now, everything I try he basically ignores me (Except the shooting cheerios in the toilet, then he got mad and told me that you EAT those not put them in the toilet). So I decided I would just bring it up here and there but back off so the other day I was changing again a Stinky diaper and as I was changing it I decided to ask him, "Why he didn't use the potty" to my SHOCK he goes, "Well if you stopped hasslin me" WHAT, so I was so shocked I had to say, "what did you say" and he repeated it!! I couldn't stop laughing after I told him okay we would try it his way. BUT if my son is old enough to know the word hasslin and ability to use it in a correct sentence I think he is old enough to change his own diapers. (I wish) Anyways any suggestions would be great??? Brody is very stubborn and so I know he needs to have choices and things need to be his idea, sooo I guess we will wait and hope he decides before preschool starts:)

Life with boys in a nutshell.....

We were celebrating Brody's birthday with grandparents and family yesterday, at the beginning of the party Brody got a scratch on his cheek and me and my mom were talking about how last year he also had an owie by his eye. Well I'm sure Brody didn't want to outdo himself or anything, but by the end of the night here was the results


By morning his poor eye is almost swollen shut, my poor kid

VACATION, YEAH!!!

Since Colby is on year around school and he is off the month of January we wanted to do something to fill the month. Especially since January is the sloooowest month of the year for me. Initially we were going to go to Arizona and visit friends and family, but our son Brody is a Mickey fanatic, and we figured since he is free till he turns three, lets take advantage and go to Disneyland!! We were going to fly, but decided with all the luggage and with where our dates hit on coming and going we preferred to drive....

Key's to driving with two boys for 6 hours at a time
1- DVD Player
2-LOTS of DVD's
3- Headphones to watch the DVD's so you don't have to hear the movie the whole time
4-Books on Tape, for you while the boys have their headphones on and for the kids when they don't
5- Limit the amount of movies, watch a movie, color or read a book etc..(but bring seperate bags for each kid)
6- Crackers (so no junk food tummy aches)and water bottles to limit stops
7- Boys, so that when they have to go pee really quick you can actually just pull over
The drive wasn't a problem, but Thurs night before we left Brody woke up all sick, so knowing how he gets we immediately took him to the doctor and got prescriptions on an inhaler and on the Nebulizer medicine. We headed out Friday at 4:30 (the plan was three and make it to Cedar City and find a hotel) By the time we hit Payson, Brody was really wheezing, we didn't have an actual nebulizer because the Walgreens and Walmart in SLC didn't have any and all the Medical Supply places were closed. We saw a Rite Aid off the freeway and decided to try them. Nebulizers usually run around 100 to 150.00. When we asked the Rite Aid they told us they did not, but the Payson Market had one. Which luckly was still opened. We went over there and not only did they have one, but it was a race car style (Brody thought that was cool) and it was only 40.00 bucks!!! Wow that was awesome. We gave Brody his inhaler and headed off again, went to Fillmore and got a great hotel where we were able to help Brody out and the boys were able to go swimming in the pool. Not the best start, but not to bad either!!


The next morning we headed off to Circus, Circus, (f you stay there stay in the new remodeled West Tower, nice rooms) where the boys enjoyed all the games!



After that we got went to a Resort Hotel next to Legoland, great rooms (as I am very picky about the rooms) and awesome views of the sun setting over the ocean.

The next morning (Monday) we were going to Legoland, so we let the boys swim for alittle bit then put them down to sleep.

My brother told us we could do Legoland for half a day, so we meandered and were slow for the first half, but then we realized if we didn't pick it up we wouldn't even make it to half the park! We did get to almost everything!
I concentrated so hard on my boys I kinda forgot about Batman (and his face)


Brody being "sad" and tired because he couldn't find Colby (in the bathroom)


Colby's favorite ride, he got to drive these cars without a track and he was sooo cautious about stopping at the stop signs and green lights, it was great!

Brody's favorite ride, he yelled giddie up, the WHOLE time:)

Legoland was great, and not crowded even though it was a somewhat holiday (Martin Luther King Day, or Humans Rights, not sure what Cali calls it)


The next day was our day to get to Anneheim and relax before Disneyland. We ate breakfast at a Danish place where we had some great pasteries, then we decided to go to the beach, we knew it would be too cold to get into the water, (no one told all those surfers that though) but thought the boys might enjoy seeing it. Brody wouldn't get too close to the water, but Colby went with Allen down and walked along the shore. I saw a couple Dolphins so I thought that was pretty cool. Allen and I decided we want to retire in Carlsband, CA!

They also enjoyed burying themselves in the sand

I was hoping I would have more time to update this during the superbowl, but now I do need to get back to work, so I'll finish another day. (hopefully sooner than later!)

Merry Christmas to all

As everyone knows I am a horrible blogger, but we did have a GREAT Christmas and hope everyone also enjoyed theirs.
My highlight was this year was every week we decided to do something for someone else, one of the weeks we went through and put christmas tags on a bunch of stuffed animals and went to a Old folks, rehab home that our friend Katie works at. It was great to see the boys hand out the stuffed animals and especially to see my boys who HATE kisses and my shy Brody who will usually never go near anyone he doesn't know, accept hugs and KISSES from these Grandma's.
The boys had a great Christmas and I love this time of year, but have decided I HATE the shopping. I tried once when I didn't have the boys to go shopping and I walked into Walmart went to the back of the store, turned around and walked back out, it was soooo crowded. I went home, went online and did most of the rest of my shopping online. I use to make fun of people who started shopping June before, but this year it might happen!

We got a REAL tree this year and it turned out very nice, Allen loves real tree's I personally hate spending the money on them and our luck in the past hasn't been the best, but this one survived from the weekend after Thanksgiving through Christmas. (Yes we had a tree up all through December, usually we get on up the week before Christmas) Also we found a tree lot a couple blocks from our home and they delivered it for free to us! That always helps. I didn't get a picture after it was decorated though, big bummer.

We did get other opportunities for the boys to visit Santa, Brody wouldn't get near him.
We were even lucky enough to get a personal visit to our house from Santa, the boys must of been really good this year! My brother just happened to be visiting signing papers for his new house so Lexi also got to see Santa, she was about as thrilled as Brody at the prospect.
Brody is even smiling!!! I think it has more to do with the candy cane than being by Santa!

Christmas is always full of fun and parties! It was great seeing everyone and enjoying the Holidays with family and friends.
Allen and I wanted to go "light" this year, but it seems to not happen as usual, the boys were spoiled rotten from all their great grandpa, grandma's and Uncles, Aunts and Cousins.
Christmas Morning


Wondering why they got a tinkerbell movie...

It was snowing REALLY hard at our house Christmas morning and we are grateful that everyone was able to make it out there, some got stuck on their way back out, but what is Christmas without insane amounts of snow!

The night ended with a movie downstairs with the Robins, as Daddy's present was speakers and Mommy's was a new couch!!
Merry Christmas and Happy New year (belated...)
