I can't think of what to blog about??? I thought about doing the nickname tag from Lynette's blog, but I just can't get motivated!!!! Recovering from this surgery I had last week, is just kicking my butt!!!!! I think this Vicodin makes me super lazy and keeps me in a daze. I wake up in the morning, thinking today will be a better day, but by the time I take a shower I am totally exhausted!!!! Not to mention I have been having the worst headaches lately and now my neck hurts from sleeping wrong!! I guess I do have something to blog about... that would be complaining and being super grumpy! Dusty said I was very mean to him and the nurses while I was in the hospital. Hello, I was high on morphine??? Maybe I am having rebound headaches from all the drugs I was on while in the hospital? On a better note, while trying to recover I have enjoyed watching how happy my boys are. They love life and they live for fun! Everyday to them is a party! :) I have four weeks to sit back and relax with my family. Four weeks!!! The only sad thing about the relaxing part is I can't pick up Caroline. I have been instructed that I can't lift anything over 5 pounds. And well, Caroline has never been under 5 pounds. We do get to cuddle in the bed and that is priceless. I guess I did have something to blog about... venting!!! I promise I will have a happier blog next time...i hope

Simply The Best

This is for my hunky firefighter husband... Thank you so much for all that you do for our family. You are amazing. Thanks for being Mr. Mom on the weekends while I am at work. I could not do it without you. Those boys love you and I have to say I am a bit jealous of your superior mom skills. I remember when you used to stay home with them during the week while I was working at the school and I got up one night because I heard noise coming from the kitchen. I remember walking in there, not being able to see because I did not have my glasses on and yelling at you to go to bed. Little did I know that you were preparing breakfast for the next morning. I mean, here was my husband, at 10 PM making pancakes the night before so he could just heat them up in the microwave the next morning. You were also cutting up toppings to go in the omelets, such as green peppers, ham, etc. (Cameron loves omelets??) You were doing all of this, so you could spend more time playing with the boys, instead of being in the kitchen. I will always remember that. I just wish I was not so rude to you. I have to give it to you Dusty... You are amazing. I love you so much! You are the glue that binds this family together. I hope you enjoy the homemade chocolate sheet cake I made for you. And yes, it was homemade. Have fun playing with the boys this weekend and don't spoil CC to much. We love you and we are so thankful for you.
Big Mama, Cameron, Jake, & CC

Happy 6 months!

Caroline is 6 months today! Man, how quickly time flies! I guess since Caroline is our last baby, I just want to keep her at 6 months forever. My favorite thing to do with her is hold her in my arms, turn up some music and just dance. I love to feel her head lay against my shoulder. Okay, I will stop before I get teary eyed again. Well, today we went to the doctor for her shots and she actually did pretty good. I was very impressed. She is not high on the chart, but then again neither were
Cameron and Jake. She weighed a whopping 13 pounds 10.5 ounces. Again, that is not much, puts her in the 10 percentile, but HEY, SHE MADE THE CHARTS!!!! Hooray for that!
And for the boys... They have been busy preparing for Valentine's Day. They each made Valentine card boxes. Cameron had to do his for school and Jake made his for fun (which I will make up cards to place in his box)! Sometimes, I wish I was still a kid! Here is a picture of them posing with their Valentine Day Card boxes.

*the theme for the box was Cars*

Sweet Caroline

Here are some long awaited pictures of Caroline. She will be 6 months next Wednesday. I can't believe it! I also can't believe that her hair is long enough for pigtails! I have to admit I LOVE IT! At first I was not sure what to do with all of her hair, but it has grown on me and well, I just love it!!!!! She is the sweetest and I am so glad I finally got my girl!!! I can't imagine my life without her. So, before I get all teary eyed... here are the pics.
Hmm..this is grass?

Feel The Breeze...

Being Outside Is Great!

Someone please help me. This grass is getting rather itchy!

27 Dresses

This week Caroline saw her first chick flick, 27 Dresses. I must say it was a great movie. Actually, Caroline really only saw the first 30 minutes and then she was out. She did so good. I really thought I would be out in the hall most of the movie, but I only stepped out once and that was for about 5 minutes. It felt so great to get out and see a 'real' movie, instead of a kid flick. So, the next movie on my list to see is Juno. Hopefully, Dusty and I can get a sitter and have a real 'date' night, which would be dinner and a movie! So, I will keep you posted and let everyone know if anything pans out.
Movie Tid Bit: Katherine Heigl (who plays in 27 dresses) was raised a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
