So we did get a new puppy and I had to clean everything I wanted to wait the incubation period just to be safe and it has now been 12 days so I think we are in the clearing. Here she is and yes I named the new puppy Lilly too I really wanted a dog named Lilly so she is our new baby girl!!!
So we got him this for his birthday asn he loves it I put it in our toy room and I couldn't believe when Doug adn the kids told me he goes down head first what a crazy little man, Boy am I in trouble with this one he reminds me a lot of Daxton he was also pretty crazy and still is. I remember my mom saying I wouldn't be surprised if you find him on top of your fridge one day, because Daxton was a climber well folks I never did find him on topof the fridge just counters and table. He is by far my most adventerous kid and daring in fact I am always telling him to be careful or no you are going to get hurt things like that. Well here is some pics of KArson trying to climb up the slide and he did in fact succeed.
LAST CHANCE! to see my boys in action Saturday they play their last game of basketball and they are better than they were last year adn are so fun to watch play Daxton has a lot of fun and they both love basketball, in fact I got thema double shot basketball hoop at the DI and they love to play it well everyone does I just can't shoot. If you want to see them in action just give me a call. DAXTON is #4 and Dalton is in the pic that is dark I am not sure why it is so dark.
So I adopted a black lab puppy on Wed of last week and by saturday hse was a sick little dog. But I thought it was because of changing her food so I let it go but then by Mon she was sick so I took her into the vet and she was positive for parvo so now my house is the haz mat place while I am killing this awful deadly virus for dogs, well needless to say she passed away this morning. I was all about rescuing a dog and now not so sure. Well she was the sweetest dog for the short time we had her. So between the cost of all her things and adoption fees she has ended up being an expensive deal. Oh and not to mention it was part of the x-mas present. Sad day but hopefully all that we do will protect everything for a new dog.
I almost can not believe that he did it, Dalton was sitting on the couch and he was holding on to the coffee table and took two steps it was amazing then he walked to Doug about four steps and then decided he had enough. I even tried coaxing him with an oreo but didn't care, he got it anyway! It is a bittersweet day and moment, it just means my baby is growing up too fast, and I am getting OLDER. What's a mom to do? Don't get me wrong I am very happy that he is walking for him but it means more messes for me and then he gets much faster. I love my kids, but also wish they would stay little, before long no one will be home and then I will be sad hopefully they will all stick around close by. Well gotta go and catch the small one, LOL.
So I know that I have created a Monster, yes a chocolate lover, I made chocolate chip pancakes and gave hime some and this was the end result. All over him adn he loved every minute of it I guess it all started when I was pregnant and continued after, although I never gave it to him in a hand held form til he was almost or was a year, but I ate it alot when I was nursing, at first he got a little upset but honestly ladies it is good right and I couldn't resist. Don't leave out M&M's around when he is in the room otherwise he has to have them. He is just TOO CUTE.
We all went out to Doug's parents house to do our Thanksgiving this weekend adn had LOTS of FUN. We rode go-carts, motorcycles, played in sand and slide. Karson was just dying to drive the go-cart, so I did it and it was a little tricky but we had fun he was NOT happy when I was freezing cold and decided that we needed to go in the house to get warm. Thanks Mom and Dad J we always have a blast when we come out there to play.
So my little man came home yesterday from school very disturbed about these cute little love notes from a girl in his class, he was so confused as what to do. He keep asking me what was he going to do? I asked him if I could tell dad and maybe he would know, I also asked him if he had kissed her and he said NO WAY! He wasn't so sure about anyone knowing but after long thought he said I could tell dad. It just cracks me up thinking of this 2nd grade people are you serious. Anyways lots of talk about not kissing girls and that fun stuff he gave me the papers to put on his baby book. Doug was laughing so hard and asked him if she was cute his darling smile he said yes. What's a mom to do? Let's hope no more right? LOL

Okay here it goes last night I went downstairs to fold laundry and Karson went with me (of course) and he kept going between the laundry room and Kori's room playing and having fun it was so cute to hear them laughing and playing together. As far as I knew they were still right there close, oh and the twins were upstairs, and they were supposed to be picking up their room (key word supposed) anyway the next thing I hear is BREATHE KARSON BREATHE KARSON, I drop everything and go running and I was running which felt like slow motion knowing that my baby was hurt and in what condition I did not know. Kori met me on the upstairs holding a limp baby, I was screaming so loud and Doug came running in and started yelling (which probably was not the best reaction but normal right?) Karson finally started whimpering but still pretty limp, knowing now that the boys had put him on the top bunk bed, let me remind you all I have real hard wood in my house, and he had fallen off no idea what or where he hit I called the Dr. of course bring him in this is 9:15 at night. You ask why are they not in bed who knows driving me crazy. I call my mom and ask her to go to the Dr. so Doug could stay home and take care of the kids well I have been obsessed with reading all these blogs with babies passing away (very sad but now I am very protective, I know I couldn't handle it, god bless to all those who do) I leave to take him to the Dr, oh and Kori decides to go so she can watch Karson in the back. She asks are you speeding. I say yes. Then she waits and is now crying again and says Mom if I say a prayer will that help him? I tell her I don't know but for sure but you can try. Anyways get to the Dr, NO they didn't take any x-rays, but he did give me the paper on concussions and whatever, anyways long story but he is okay and I waited the 24 hrs to write just to be sure, although he does have a golf ball size knot on the left lower part of his head and is not very happy when he has to lay on that side anyways no sleep for me last night, so I am hoping tonight goes better. Anyways Love to you all and I am headed to bed!!
Okay so to let everyone know that I am too cheap to pay for someone to take my kids pics I just take them myself and hope for the best. Here are a few of the ones I took and I am sorry in advance that you all can not see all of them. I am hoping to also take some more when the snow finally falls and even a new family one, maybe even christmas cards this year although I would need addresses from those of you who want one but I will let you know more when and if I end up getting family pics.
We have been married 11 years in June and been together 18 years. We have 4 kids two cats and 2 dogs. Jen stays home, and currently goes to Weber State and Doug is a mechanic. We bought our 1st home in Kaysville and love the area and space but it needs some TLC on the outside. Kori who is 12 and she is on a competition soccer team and loves it, Dalton and Daxton 10 love to help Doug fix cars and ride on the motorcycle or anything with an engine and Karson who is 3 really likes everyone. Our cats names are Mater and Sebastian the Dog's are Diesel and Lilly.
