I ♥LOVE♥ this picture of my husband and I so much that I decided to change my blog header.

I love my husband so much. He is my rock. He is my strength. He makes me so perfectly happy and makes me feel better when I'm not feeling that great.
He is a loving, devoted daddy to our two children, and the only man I can ever imagine growing old with.

fun fun fun

Holy crud, these have been some busy weeks.
4 birthday parties, 4 consecutive weekends. Morgan has been one busy friend.
Tomorrow is my niece, Hailey's, 4th birthday party. Today's her birthday. Happy birthday Hailey!
And NEXT saturday is my great friend Niki's babys' birthday party. Cooper and Sophia will be 2.

After that, we're gonna take a break from fun and then the following saturday, we're gonna go to six flags! Morgan doesn't know. We're not gonna tell her until that day. She's gonna pee her pants when she sees the collussus. She thought the ferris wheel at the carnival was huge.
This will be her first trip to six flags. Don't know what we're gonna do with Orin yet.

Update: Orin is gonna spend the day with Hailey when we go to six flags! He will have a blast. AND...Stephanie has a free teacher's ticket that she's not gonna use, so I can get in for free!!! Bonus!

Some exciting news!

I just realized that December 22nd was the last time that Morgan has thrown up....6 1/2 months ago!
She felt nauseaus last month for a few days, but when we took her to the dr they said she had tonsilitis. She was probably nauseaus because of her tonsil being swollen.
But no actual throwing up!

And....I took her off of the prevacid a month ago and she hasn't said anything about it or about feeling sick.

Fingers crossed that it stays this way for my little girl.

This is what she looked like days after the Dec. 22nd hospitalization. She was so pale and super skinny. :(

But, she's back to a good weight now!

It's saturday!

I love saturdays because I generally don't have to work that day.
And luck would have it that this is one of those NON work days for me.

We have plans to do our 4th of July celebrations (aka: bbq and fireworks) at Chad's mom's house today. But we have a 50% chance of thunderstorms all day. Mother Nature sucks sometimes.

And another thing....
I wish Orin's internal alarm clock could get on a different schedule instead of him waking up (and subsequently waking ME up) 2 minutes before my alarm goes off. I set the alarm for 8am because I like to get up at least 20 minutes before the kids so that I can have some time to wake up before they start whining for food and nickelodeon. Right after school got out for Morgan, they would both sleep til 8:30 or 9:00, so the alarm time was perfect.
I don't wanna have to start setting it earlier. :(

4th of July

I was actually off of work for the 4th. I asked....and I received. I got to spend the entire day with my children.

We had dinner AT Wendy's. That was a treat in itself because we normally don't eat AT the restuarants. We generally take it home to eat.

Then we went and picked out fireworks. Grandma gave them each $10 to pick out their own. They were so excited.

And then it was off to the carnival. Played some games....rode some rides. Ate some funnel cake, well, I did anyway.
Orin's favorites were the carousel and the big slide.
Morgan's favorites were the ferris wheel and the fun house.

My favorite was the funnel cake! :D

We stayed about an hour and only spent $30 there. That was Chad's favorite part!

I only got pictures before we left because my camera battery won't hold a charge anymore so it's pointless to take it.

We're not doing our fireworks until next weekend because Chad's mom just recently had neck surgery and isn't feeling up to the festivities yet. So I think we're doing the bbq and fireworks on the 11th at her house. She lives outside of city limits so we can do fireworks anytime we want there.
I will try to get a new battery for my camera before then.
