Utah State Fair and misc.

We went to the Fair on Friday night with my parents. It was a blast. I think I have as much fun (or more fun) as the kids!!
I'm riding with Austy and my dad has Brody. I'm sure if you click on it, it will enlarge and you can look at their faces. Pure excitement!! (i think?)
The guy asked me if I would be alright to ride. Gee, can't you tell there is enough pading to keep this baby from bumping anything! Ah well, nursing will suck it all away. Thats my motto.

Yee haw cowboys!

Don't mind her right eye. There must have been something on my lens.
Isn't that cute. The calf was 3 weeks old. I had to give it a love also. It was so soft. Oh you could just squeeze him. Walking through all the live stock areas I kept telling myself there is NO WAY I could be a farmer or ranch girl. Sorry Janette :). The smell and my allergies combined, woof. My eyes felt like they were neon red and my nose was running all over the place. I'd make a crummy farmer.
This is what a day at the fair will do to yah. Exhaustion. Look closely and you can see he has chocolate dried to where his binkie was. Oh, to be little again!
These are at home with Bella the fish in the background. I couldn't get over his chubbiness.
Look at those thighs!!! EEK! I love to smother them in kisses.
I love this boy! Take a good look at those cabinets. I finally got the gumpsion to paint them. I'm doing a green color. No, not neon green, more like a sage green. I let you know how they turn out! Wish me the best of luck, I'm going to need it!

This is when Austy tried to dress him up as a princess. He wasn't to thrilled about that.
Sometimes these kids are so crazy I find myself wanting to just cry, whole away in my room and cry. But then you realize how blessed you are to have them and how much better they make your life.

september so far

I wanted to get this picture before he grows out of it. Whenever Brody wants food and he wants to be polite he folds his hands behind his back and waits.

Isn't that sweet??

This is him folding his arms for the prayer... Austy is SO not excited for green beans. Can you tell?

Their favorite hide-out. The crib. Look at those doll faces.

Don't mind Cody's hair. ha ha ha. He won't be to happy to see that one on the blog.

the zoo

I love this time of year. The cooler air, the leaves changing, hay bales, corn stalks, pumpkins. Oh, i love it all. Life is going super well. Brody says a couple words now, (I know finally). *cracker* bubble bath*mom* dad*. Not to many, but still its progress. And Austy is doing well in school. I think she really likes it which is great. I think if you get the kids excited for school hopefully it will stay with them as they grow.

So through this whole Kanye West and Taylor Swift thing I realized I've never seen that video of hers. I checked it out the other day with Austy and we were in love. It's so funny, the lyrics are great and she is so crafty to come up with them on her own.

I need to post some pics of this belly. Every time I go to jump into the shower I'm shocked at what I see and not in a good way. Its just growing and growing, but hopefully a healthy baby.

And last but not least I hope I didn't offend anyone with that post about texting and driving. I usually get a few comments on each post but after that one they seemed to dwindle off. Yikes. Sorry if i made you question your reckless driving.... If you want to unfollow me I understand. :)

swine flu

or so we thought! Thursday night I took Cody to the emergency room. He had a fever of a 104, he couldn't move his body he was in so much pain, and he was having troubles breathing. They took an x-ray, strep culture, and blood tests. 4 1/2 hours later, Strep Throat and Pneumonia. Pretty crappy weekend we've had here. Not to mention our computer went caput again. Thank goodness we know people who are technically savy. And I'm sick also. But I'm thinking its more of a head cold. Not strep. Do you know what its like to have your children so close and you can't even kiss their little cheekies for fear of spreading germs.. Yah it blows. But we are on the mend and super glad we are healthy and not dying of swine flu.
