Funny Toes

If you take a look at the bottom of Aubrie's feet, it looks like she only has 4 toes... Seriously. And this is why-
Look closely and you'll see that her second toe sits on top of her first and third toe. I used to think it was because her toes were too fat to fit all of them in a row, now I just think it's funky genetics. I guess we'll see over the next few years where they line up!

A nice welcome home...

Sick children.

The second Michael picked me up from the airport, I could hear my children's snotty noses just by the way they talked. Oh well, little colds, no big deal.
2 hours later, I already had their "little cold".
1 day later, Hailey feels perfectly fine, her nose gets a little runny when she whines, but nothing more.
Me, still have a stinkin cold.
Aubrie, she now has croup. That's nice huh? I took her to her pediatrician this morning, they gave her an oral steroid and just said to keep an eye on her and push fluids. And reassured me that its contagious only as a common cold, which pretty much everyone has right now anyway, and if they don't they are bound to pick it up soon. Thankfully, she hasn't been acting worse then usual. A little more clingy, but I'm used to that, she's my sit on my lap child as it is, so nothing different. And she is sleeping fine, so that's great. Although, now that I write that, she'll probably be up all night.
All sickness aside, my trip was great. I flew down on Sunday morning for my Grandpa's 80th birthday party. We surprised them by showing up at church, and they were so excited. Then I drove out to the desert and stayed with Holly for 2 nights, and Amy for 1. It was so much fun to get a break and see my best friends. We decided to do a girls night, sans kiddos. We started it out at In n' Out (yum), then went bowling. The last time I went bowling was the night before Amy got married, 2 1/2 years ago. We concluded the night by getting ice cream. It was a fun, calorie filled, night! Holly has some pictures on her blog, so if you feel so inclined to check them out, here ya go.
Anyway, it is nice to be home. And to actually have some fall weather (the desert is still stinkin HOT). I just wish everyone were healthy!! All in good time I suppose.

We have a new family member...

Yes, I am now a minivan driving typical mom. Weird. But I am so excited. It's a 2008 Silver Kia Sedona with 12 miles on it. The girls aren't too sure about it, they think that the guy that came and dropped it off is gonna come back and pick it up. It'll help when we get their carseats in it, but Michael so kindly took them to work with him this morning.
This is the first time in 2 years we have been a 2 car family... it's going to be different. Although, Michael says, what's the point of having two cars, now that we have 2 car payments, you wont have money to go anywhere in your second car. Lol, this is true. But a drive 1.5 miles down the street to a friends for a playdate costs next to nothing, but offers me an ounce of sanity... Well worth it.

And everyone but me is asleep. Michael fell asleep on the ground watching TV. Aubrie finally gave in after 30 minutes of whining, and Hailey is asleep after reading the same book 5 times. And now I have nothing to do... BORING.
I guess I could fold some laundry, or go clean the playroom... But I'd rather not. So I suppose I will just dink around on the internet until I can fall asleep, in 2 hours. Any suggestions on fun, mindless, entertaining websites?

Same Blog as everyone else this week...

Trick or Treat!

So Halloween was a busy but fun day! The girls so excited to dress up that they were in their costumes by 10:30 am. Aunt Hayden came and picked us up so the girls could go to her parents Adult Daycare that they own and do some activities with the elderly. Michael then picked us up from there, and took me to the hospital so I could see my friend Kendra and her new baby. Then we came home for a 45 minutes and Aubrie and Michael took a quick nap before we headed up to church for trunk or treat. After that we headed back to our neighborhood and took the girls trick or treating for a while. Hailey loved it! Aubrie just wanted to eat each piece of candy that was handed to her, right then and there. So most the time she walked around with a sucker in her mouth. We didn't get any really good pictures, but here are a few for your viewing pleasure...
Aubrie in her very fitting costume...

Hailey as Ariel... She really wanted red hair, but she didn't mention that until Halloween day, and we couldn't find any red spray, just orange. And she fell walking to school the day before, so that's why the beautiful beauty marks!

Yay! A mini-vaca!

I get to go to California for a few days next month! I am totally excited and can't wait! Best part, NO KIDDOS! Woohoo! Michael gets to have them Sun-Wed all to himself. Oh the joys.
