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.

Little Crush

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!!

New Pics of the Kids

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.
