Just wanted to post a few of our easter pictures. Sorry about the red eye. I spend all day in Photoshop working. I just closed the program and quite frankly am too tired to open it and edit these.
Easter was nice. We went over to Michaels moms house (she was out of town) so Kevin could have a nice Easter dinner with us. It was yum! Hailey loved her basket, Aubrie loved sucking on the eggs, lol.

Just waiting..........

Michaels plane was supposed to get in at 5:00. Well the silly boys got to the gate about 25 minutes before it was supposed to take off and they had switched gates. By the time they got to the next gate, 15 minutes before doors closed, they had already given there seats away. So now they're waiting, just waiting. As are we. Hailey keeps asking me when we're going to go see Daddy. Now he doesn't get in until 8:30. We're all pretty anxious.

But for now, just waiting...

I'm just gonna post a bunch of pictures I've take over the past few weeks.
This first few are from when Aubrie wasn't feeling well last week. She crawled over to the side of the couch, and just fell asleep. That's when I knew for sure she was sick. Hailey saw her laying there and so she brought her a blanket and covered her.

Here is me and my sister Emily last weekend when they came out to visit, perfect timing for my daughters to get everyone sick!

Since we didn't get to have a birthday party for Aubs, my brother Joey went and got her a cake. We tried writing her name on it, but it was HARD. The frosting wouldn't come out of the tip, you seriously had to use ALL your strength to get any to come out. She hated when we sang happy birthday to her. She just wanted to grab the candle. So she screamed instead. She did enjoy the cSince we didn't get to do a birthday party for Aubrie my brother just went to the store and gotake after a little while, but she ESPECIALLY enjoyed taking a bath in the sink afterwards.

It was a fun afternoon, thank you Joey and Hayden for dinner and cake. Thanks Mom, Dad, Emmy, and Sandra for coming and visiting us. We had tons of fun and miss you all already.

My adorable girls...

Just wanted to share a few pictures of the girls. They are getting so big. I took these the other day when they were playing outside with Aubs new car.

The last two are of Aubrie's makeshift birthday party at Fridays. She was supposed to have another birthday party tomorrow with friends and family, but she's not been feeling well for the past 3 days. And this morning Hailey woke up and threw up, in my bed, on my sheets, thank you very much lovely daughter of mine. So to avoid getting other people sick, I decided to forgo her party. I still plan on making a little smash cake so she can have at it, but probably not until she is feeling up to it. Pictures to come...

Ahhh... Sleep

So for Christmas Michael got me these ear plugs. I use them mostly when we're traveling or when he lets me sleep in a few extra hours. But last week when we were all feeling sick, my wonderful husband told me to put them in, shut my door and wake up in the morning. He slept on the floor in Hailey's room with her. So I went to bed around 11 and didn't wake up from children until Hailey came in around 8. To which, I promptly sent her back out and to Daddy and slept for another 1.5 hours. I woke up a few times in the night just because, but it was nice to not wake up to crying children. And with ear plugs in, you hear next to NOTHING! Pure bliss! Thank you Honey!!! I love you!

*Oh and to top it off, the next day he sent me out to run errands with JUST Hailey, and when I came home he had cleaned the kitchen, swept and mopped! So even though they tend to always think they are sicker then us at times, they can still be wonderful husbands!!

(Michael, was that good enough?)

Happy Birthday Aubrie Lynn!

Happy 1st Birthday Aubs!

That's right, my baby girl is 1 today! She had a fun day. She went and played at her Nana's house in the morning then went home with Mom and Dad and got her big present. Its a car to push her around in. Then we took her to Fridays for dinner. They sang Happy Birthday to her and everything, she loved it!
Here are a few things about our sweet little Aubs!
  • She LOVES baths. She'll splash around forever
  • Lately she's been into just cuddling. She'll sit with Michael on the couch and watch TV in the nook of his arm.
  • She is always saying "more". Especially when it comes to food. The second she finishes her bite she says, "More! More!"
  • Her favorite foods are fruits & vegetables. Tomatoes, broccoli, lettuce, pickles, bananas, avocados, strawberries, apples, nectarines, you name it, she loves it!
  • She thinks that it is the funniest thing to pick on Hailey. When Hailey walks by she often just hits her for fun.
  • She's a big ol' wussy! She can walk, and has taken steps, but the second she notices that you let go of her, she slowly crouches down and sits.
  • She is a GREAT sleeper. We put her down at 7:30 and she wakes up at like 8 (sleeps MUCH better then her big sister).
  • She'll dance all day long if you'll just turn the music on for her.
  • When she's mad, wants your attention, or just plain feels like it, she'll scream at the top of her lungs for as loud and long as she can.
  • She has a blue blankey (thank you very much Melissa) that she is overly attached to. She has to have it to sleep and nothing else will work.
  • She is just an all around lovable kid!
Happy Birthday Aubrie, we love you!

Wrath of Sickness

So it has consumed us, completely and entirely. Started with me last Sunday, I got a slight cough, thought nothing of it. Turned into a sore throat. Which then turned into Michael having a sore throat. And you know what irritates me the most about that. When I was the only one feeling sick, it was no big deal, he probably didn't even believe me. The days went on as normal, Mom did everything, no changes. But the second he got sick, you better believe (because he sure did) that his sore throat and cough was 100x worse then mine. Men=babies. Enough said.
Well Thursday Hailey got it bad. She wouldn't eat anything. The poor girl wouldn't even swallow her own saliva. She cried all night. Forced me to sleep on the couch because she wanted in my bed, and I don't do well with 2 year old feet on me all night.
2 doctors appointments, 2 prescription medicines, 3 LOOOOOONG nights, 8 crazy tantrums, 10 dripping Popsicles, and 2 MAJOR headaches (belonging to me) later, she is finally feeling a little better. Phew. Just in time for Aubrie to break out with a fever. Will it ever end? At least the bossman finally manned up and stepped in. He is sleeping on her bedroom floor tonight so I can try and rest. I just pray Aubrie lets that happen.
Here's to a better week!

And if anyone knows why men get so much sicker then women, please, enlighten me.
