What a weekend?!

We had such an eventful weekend...so much to cover.
First of all, the picture of Hannah "potty training" was taken over 2 years ago. Its just a funny picture from the archives. You all give me too much credit...I wish I could say I thought of that but it wasn't me! Josh is the one who posed that pic and also photographed it. He really has the best sense of humor!

On to the events!
We have been pre-approved and have started the purchase of a new construction home! we are very excited to think we will have a yard and separate bedrooms for the kids finally! More pictures and details to come....

Hannah had a wonderful soccer game! She played so hard and really enjoyed herself. We think she is starting to figure out the whole thing. It was a very hot day and so she got very tuckered out easily. Her team won!

And the last main event of the weekend is...... drum roll please.....

Marshall is walking! He officially took 4 steps and to me that is walking. He is so proud of himself and keeps trying! I know I said I wasn't looking forward to him walking but really its so fun to watch him have a little more independence.

So folks there you have it a busy weekend and a busy week on the horizon. I start my new job tomorrow. I'll let you know how it goes! I'm a little nervous. Its like the first day of school. I've picked out my clothes for the whole week....haha!

Future Sister in law!

My soon to be sister in law has a blog. I am so excited to see her here in the blogosphere.
I really think its a fun unique way to keep in touch with friends and family you don't get to see everyday. Bryce and Hannah are getting married May 24th. She is such a cutie and so is my brother for that matter! They will certainly have beautiful children together whenever they are ready for that...I'm not pushing...well maybe a little. I can't wait to finally meet Hannah and see my baby Brother get married. Did I mention we're driving to Alabama for the big day? Yeah driving!! Memorial Weekend??!!

I'm a Soccer Mom!

Hannah had her first Soccer game on Saturday. This is the first time she's ever played on a sports team. We are very proud of her even though she was overcome by fear at the game. The first half of the game she was too scared and a little confused. But once she was formally introduced to her teammate Bethany she was ready to play. She mostly chased Bethany which was fine because Bethany was chasing the ball. It looked like Hannah new what she was doing! With a little more practice and experience I think she will be an awesome soccer player. As a side note, when some of our friends heard Hannah was gonna be playing soccer they teased us and said "its sliced oranges for you now"! And wouldn't you know her first snack after the game was sliced oranges! Ha ha!!

Jury Duty

Jury Duty!!! Crazy I know! I'm not sure what to think? I got my summons in the mail yesterday to report for Jury Duty sometime in May.I'm having mixed feelings about this... I'm not very educated on the law or our Judicial System. I don't think I'm qualified for this. But then again I'm kinda excited because this is an opportunity to see how it all works. And there's always the cliche "its your civic duty". What do you think? Would you go or would you find a way to become exempt?

Dance like no ones watching!

Look who's NOT feeling better!

So now Marshall is sick! This is exhausting. I'm tired and cranky because I worked so hard to keep everything clean and bacteria free. I kept Hannah away from everyone. I thought I out smarted this stupid stomach bug. When Babies get sick its even worse...they can't communicate their needs. This bug comes on quick, no signs or clues just all the sudden they throw up. I won't give you all the details lets just say I am very tired and ready for a break!

So this was Marshall on Sunday night...notice he's being cute and looks healthy?

This is him Monday....so sad...isn't it?

Look who's feeling better!

Hannah had a really bad stomach bug since last Thursday. It pretty much knocked her out for about 4 days. Along with throwing up she had a really high fever. But now its Monday and she is feeling soooo much better. She had been cooped up in the house all weekend so I sent her on a play date with her Aunt Kiki to the nail salon. She got her nails done and I think they look so cute. Kiki is such an amazing Aunt she really helps out in more ways than she'll ever know. Hannah and Marshall are so lucky to have such a cool and fun Aunt. I'm lucky too because she's my sister!

This Kiki and Hannah!

7 Random Facts!

My friend e-mailed me and I've been tagged with this fun little task. I'm to share 7 random facts about myself. So here goes....

1- I was born in the Netherlands. Lived there for 2 years but I don't remember any of it. I supposedly had dual citizenship until I was 18 years old...I'm not sure if thats true or not.

2- I pierced my tongue on one of many trips to Las Vegas in college. I figured it wasn't permanent like a tattoo and it could easily be concealed after all it was in my mouth. That didn't last long maybe a year. I don't regret it, just something I wouldn't recommend anyone doing....it hurt really bad! Really Bad!

3- I was bit by a German Shepherd named Mr. Lovable...he tore off my top lip. I was just trying to give him a kiss. Seriously, it was embarrassing I had to start the 1st grade with a major boo boo on my face.

4- I have been working supporting myself since I was 11 years old. I had a paper route for 2 years. Then I babysat until I was old enough to get a real job. My parents had 6 kids to clothe and feed. I'm sure they were happy not to have to worry about my expenses. They provided me with a roof over my head, food to eat, and a lot of love. I didn't mind being independent with my own check book in 6th grade.

5- I was voted "best smile" for my senior year High School Superlatives. Surprising since the incident with Mr. Lovable.

6- I had my driver's license suspended for about 8 months and didn't even know it. I was late paying a ticket and it looks like they suspended it...I only found out when Josh and I were getting a life insurance policy...our Insurance Agent called me and said "Why is your driver's license suspended"? Three trips later to the DMV and I've got it back.

7- I seem to have the best luck meeting and seeing celebrities...seriously.
I work at a hotel so that helps. My favorite of all times was Justin Timberlake!!!!I stood next to him at Starbucks and my knees shook while he waited for his Vanilla late. He let me cut in front of him to buy my bottled water. We had a connection....just kidding!
Also on the list: Dave Chapelle, Bret Michael's, The Allman Brothers, Howard Dean, and Barack Obama.

So that's it...I'm sure there are many more but I'm kinda tired of trying to think of them. Now I will tag many of my blog friends and get them to play along!

Funny Pictures of the week!

So I was looking through all the pictures that I have of my kids, friends, and family. And I found a bunch of miscellaneous but hilarious pictures. So I thought for your viewing pleasure I would post one every week. If I can remember I will tell you the who, what, when, where, and why!

So these pictures show you what happens when Daddy is supposed to be babysitting. I was away at a Holiday party came home to find Josh on the phone and Hannah like this. Thank goodness for washable markers!

What a Day!

So all night I had the worst case of heartburn. I tried all my usual remedies but nothing seemed to work. I finally was up and out of bed at 4:30am hoping it would go away. I watched an hour of TV and was so frustrated because my alarm was set to go off at 6:00am for work. I laid down again at 5:30 hoping to get a little more shut eye...no such luck. The pain was too unbearable to lay down. Then all the sudden my heartburn was gone. However now it was time for me to go to work. Josh convinced me there was no way I could go to work and function off of 4 hours of sleep. So I called work and told them I'd be in a little late. No big deal. Then 8:00 am came and I wake up to Hannah telling me her belly hurts. Next thing I know we're running to the bathroom and she's yacking in the toilet. Anyone who knows me knows I have the worst gag reflux...so then I was running to the other bathroom. Yes I know I am a sympathetic thrower upper! So now I'm calling work to tell them that my daughter is sick and I'm taking the day off. They are probably thinking I'm a big liar. But like I really care. So now I'm playing the nurse. Its the worst feeling when your kids are sick. I just want to make it all go away and make her feel better. Surprisingly and thankfully no more gag reflux for me! So like I titled this "What a Day" and its only 12:30pm.
