OKAY......Seriously???? Has it really been 6 months since I posted? Obviously life with three kids has kept me a little busier than I thought it would. Truth be told, my lack of blogging is probably just a result of lack of desire. I planned on getting caught up one post at a time. That got overwhelming and is the main reason I haven't done anything SOOO...I decided to bite the bullet and just do one incredibly long catch up post and call it good. Hopefully I will be able to keep current from here on out. (Fingers crossed!) So grab a snack and get comfortable. Here it goes. Starting with the current and moving backwards here is what is going my little fam.
The shirt says it all! Mason is 10 months and I plan on nursing him until he is one. I'm just not sure how I am going to wean him at that point. The kid LOVES to nurse.
Aidan (swamp monster) and Baylee (minnie mouse) for HAlloween. Unfortunately Mason hated being a dragon and I don't have any decent pictures of him :(
I mean seriously, could you not just eat him? Too cute!
Aidan gave himself his first haircut a couple weeks ago and wasn't very impressed with his skills. I think it's safe to say he won't try that again.
Sleeping beauty crashes hard. I love the cheetos scattered on the floor and the orange on her fingers and mouth. True Baylee style!
Aidan got his first set of golf clubs and was able to go with Barry a couple time this summer. He loves it!
My mom and Kelly got married! I will have to do a post on that later with some more pics. It was a great weekend and we are so happy with our expanded family!
Baylee on her first day of preschool.
Baylee got her ears peirced when she was about 5 months old. She did great with them until a year or so ago and one of them closed up so we got it re-peirced. She didn't love that experience but a sucker fixes everything right?
Aidan got his purple belt in karate! He is doing soooo good. We are so proud of him and the progress he is making in karate.
This is Aidan and Tony Martinez. For any of you that know anything about karate, he is an impressive man. He is the owner of the studio and is a well known name in the karate world. He is also a seventh degree black belt!
I turned 30!! gasp! My family threw me an 80's themed surprise party and it was a blast. In case you were wondering I didn't show up to the party in this attire. This was the outfit that was waiting for me when I got there.
We spent A LOT of time at the pool this summer. Aidan and Baylee both did swimming lessons again and Aidan is an amazing swimmer. It was Baylee's first time but she did great.
Aidan has lost his four front teeth now. Don't worry his two front teeth are already at the top of his Christmas list this year.
You could find Baylee doing this on a daily basis with her otter pops this summer. I have a freezer out in the garage and it didn't take the neighbor kids long to figure that out. I went through an insane amount of otter pops this summer.
Baylee turned three and took a couple of her friends with her to get pedicures and manicures. They thought it was the best thing ever! Barry is a little worried that I started her out so early.

Aidan participated in Jr. Jazz for the first time this year and had a great time. He loved that he got to be on the court for most of the game, unlike Baseball which was a true test of his patience and attention span. He didn't have a clue what was going on but sure had fun! lol It was so funny to watch all the kids pretty much stay all huddled up and run from one end of the court to the other. Aidan would periodically stop and ask the ref or the coach where he should go. He had a blast and we had a great time watching him! I didn't do a very good job with the pictures but you get the idea.

Back in march my baby girl had to get her first stitches. We were at my cousin Lindsay's house and Baylee was standing on a kitchen chair and reaching for something on the table. Next thing I knew she fell and hit her chin on the table and her upper teeth went THROUGH her chin right below her lip. Luckily my mom and Barry were there because I panicked. It was bleeding so bad and she was so scared. We loaded up and went to the hospital where she had to get 6 stitches. The shot was obviously the worse part and I am not sure who cried harder between her and I. She was so tought though through the stiitches and the hospital staff all fell in love with her. She is so stinking sweet. The stitches were only in for 5 days and the scar is barely visible now.
A picture a snapped while we were getting checked in. The hold isn't really visible in this pic but her her sad little look kills me.

I am alive I just took an unintentional break from the blogging world, atleast from my own blog. I have stayed caught up with all of yours thanks to my middle of the night nursing sessions, lol. Somehow though between a new baby, soccer, karate, Jr. Jazz, Holidays, and well.......life, I have gotten really far behind on mine. It wasn't until I uploaded nearly 400 pictures that I realized just how behind I was. Needless to say I will be playing catch up for the next little while. I really want to be able to turn this blog into a book some day do I am setting a goal to get caught up in the next week and a half. Although I will have two more birthdays and Mother's day to post about at that time. lol Never ending. Anyway, if you want to see a few of the shenannigans my little family has been up to lately stay tuned.
So......a couple months ago we decided that since the "puppy" (a 75 lb. black lab) was spending more time outside due to the arrival of the baby that we should get him a dog house. Barry thought it would be a fun project to work on with Aidan. Nevermind that it cost more and took up a ton of time! Oh well it's the thought right? So Barry, his dad and Aidan got to work on a dog house. Barry's dad was an engineer so a plain old dog house just wasn't going to cut it. It had to be framed, insulated, slanted, carpeted, shingled, painted and sealed. It turned out pretty nice and the inside walls lasted longer than I thought they would. I think it actually took Ty a week to eat the carpet and insulation rather than the one day I imagined it would take. Let me briefly backtrack and tell you that our "puppy" is a bit of a nightmare. He has chewed the siding off of our our house, dug out every cable including our phone line in our back yard, destroyed our $2000 playset, and chewed a 4 foot hole THROUGH our new camping trailer just to name a few. I feel like the worst pet owner in the world because I just don't know how much longer we can keep him. We jsut don't have the time to give him the attention he obviously needs. It's a dilemma. Anyway, he has a dog house, for now.
The first two sides getting framed.
