Jr. Jazz

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.

If there happened to be a dull moment in the game, Baylee was very good at providing entertainment as usual.

Grandma and Grandpa made it to almost every game. Such loyal fans :)

Aidan is in the blue #34 jersey.

And the best part of all........the trophy. Good job buddy!

Stitches x 2

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.

The end result.

A couple days later. Already looking so good.

Well, fast forward to May and we are now at the Instacare, only this time it's for Aidan. I was sitting on the porch the other day talking on the phone with my mom. Aidan had gone in the backyard to get his boomerang. He was reaching under our trailer to grab it. The dog grabbed the other end and pulled him smack into the corner of the trailer. I didn't see it but all the sudded heard screaming. I went running into the backyard to find Aidan covered in blood and panicked. AGH! I hung up on my mom and ran him to the front yard. We washed it out with the hose and I quickly realized it was going to need stitches. Luckily my mom lives close and was able to come sit with the two little kids because we were at the Instacare for TWO hours. The stitches themselves took 10 minutes. I was dreading having to got through this ordeal again but luckily had a much different experience. They put some "silly gel" numbing stuff on him right when we got there. Because we had to wait so long he was super numb by the time we got seen. They didn't even have to give him a shot so the stiching was done with no problem.
Here he is waiting with the silly gel on his head. Such a trooper, still smiling.

Not a very good picture but this is the gash.

And the beautiful stitching job. They were in for 7 days and he thought it was pretty cool that he got to keep them afterwards. Come to think of it.......I have no idea where those have ended up. Hmmm.
Hopefully this is the last of the stitches in our household for a while.

Catch up

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, 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.

Getting the walls up.

They had to take a break for some brief karate chopping of the wood action.

Even Baylee got in on the action. By the way, those are Aidan's old pajamas that she found and refuses to part with. They are her favorite. I will put her in others and she will be back in these when she gets up in the morning, little stinker.
