I'm Thankful for Not Being Bored...

Life seems so crazy lately, and I feel like I haven't had time to even stop to smell the roses...in fact...come to think of it...there aren't any...maybe I can stop to smell the fallen leaves...that are frozen.  HMMM...
Well, I have been keeping busy with all kinds of things...birthdays, photo shoots, Holidays, family, friends...the list goes on...and on it seems.  This last week I think I made the trek to Boise at least seven times...twice in one day...(40 minutes each way mind you)!!  Between doctor appointments, cheerleading, businesses, family, I just can't keep myself here in Caldwell much!!  Luckily between it all, cute little moments like these happen...

Does this look a little familiar to you??  How bout instead of a cute baby girl, its a mischievous two-year-old boy (also amazingly adorable might I add), and instead of dirt....NOPE....it was dirt too!!  What is it about my kids and potting soil??!!!  YUMMM....????


Another one of our fun adventures was Romy getting her x-rays.  I figured they would lay her on a table, and shoot a few pictures, and we'd be outta there...

Ya...not so much...ever seen one of these???


Now, this isn't Romy, and this baby actually looks about 100% more comfortable in this contraption than she was...you see they actually have to put this thing on so tight that if they move or scream (which inevitably they will cause it really is awful) their little bodies wont budge and ruin the x-ray picture.  She was so crammed in there she couldn't even move her arms that were jammed so tightly by her head that I thought they might be stuck there forever.  She was scared and screaming (told you), and just looked at me like "WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO ME??!!"  I was sad.  I had to keep from losing it over x-rays...

Now...this would be the "PG-13" section of the story.  Proceed with caution...I wouldn't normally post my...ahem..."bosom containers" on my blog for the whole wide world (the whole 20 people that actually look at it) to see...but, frankly, it is unrecognizable anyhow!!!  This is a trick Blazer learned when a babysitter mistakenly let him sleep in mommy's room...don't worry, she learned you can never trust a two-year-old too...check it out...




He really does look quite remorseful in this last one...or maybe its the look of GUILTY!!!

Today, I am thankful for new make-up and an awesome husband who cleans carpet like it's NOTHIN'!!!

Somewhere in this whole mess of chaos my oldest son turned 9!!!  I can't even believe it...SO CRAZY!!!  We took him to Pojos as a family for his birthday...first time we've ever done that, and it was fun.  He then got a super cool tank cake, and some even cooler presents!!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY SON...you are amazing!!

Oh, and P.S.  If you're ever at Pojos, and your kids wanna use one of their tokens for a giant gumball the size of a tennis ball...be prepared for this...



And maybe a slight sugar high??


Well, I hate to go so soon, but really, I have a lot to do...I mean it's 2:29AM, and I still have to squeeze some sleep in here sometime!!  But I thought I'd leave ya with a little face that I like to call "Popeye" (the cutest darn one I ever saw!!!)


I'd kiss this Popeye ANY day!!!


She's actually ambidextrous with her face...she can do this too...

She likes to suck up her bottom lip when she's eating her food...and don't ya love that little orange nose and orangy cheeks from all the orange baby food??  Do you think she bleeds orange??  How does that work??  Cause that color is comin' from the inside!!

Okay, where to start. First, I don't know how you do it all. Second, that x-ray tube looks like a torture device, and I can't imagine little Romy in there. So sad. Third, AHAHAHA about the bosom containers. I can only laugh because your hubby cleans carpet, but I would have flipped right out. Fourth, I love your smurf. And lastly, I absolutely love that pic of you and baby Romy. That could be a wall hanging. Miss you, cute chica!

I hate that exray machine! Graden had it done at 5 days old. It was torture for us both!

Ps....I would have killed that babysitter. (not really) But UGH!!!!!!

Miss said...

I was gonna say, "You sure have some darn CUTE kids"! Well, then, I just said it. :) Miss you guys.

I know how you felt when Romy had those x-rays...Baylee had that exact thing done when she was two! It was the WORST thing ever to see her stuck in that contraption unable to move and scared to death all the while looking at me wondering how I could let this happen! Yeah...horrible! I was almost in tears and couldn't watch. Anywho...on another note, I love Romy's Popeye face! That is too funny!
