Full of Pictures Wednesday!!!!!

Well as usual the pictures are not in the order I intended, but you get the drift. I would like to download more at a time, but apparently I am not computer savvy enough to figure it out. There are lots lots more pictures from Christmas. We went non-stop from Tuesday-Saturday. The boys had a blast but this momma was wore out!!! Needless to say they both got way too much, but they are having a blast with all their goodies. This is the first year that we really bought Kaleb anything and let me tell you, he really got into the whole opening present thing. He thinks that everyday should be Christmas. I think that he is finally understanding that the presents are over for now. We read the Christmas story to the boys and it is so amazing to ask Kaleb questions and he knows the answers. The Lord has blessed us beyond measure with our little bundles of joy. We love them more than they will ever know, and when Kaleb tells me he loves me or Kamden gives me that little smile it makes my heart melt. They did nothing to deserve our love, just as we did nothing to deserve the love of our Father in Heaven. He loves us unconditionally!!!! That is the most amazing gift ever!!!!
Kamden is recooping from an ear infection. He is on antibiotics which has been a bit difficult to get down him, but he is getting the hang of it. He even ate 5 bites of cereal the other night from a spoon. Of course after that he screamed b/c it was bottle time, but atleast we are making progress.
Today was my pre-op appt. for my surgery which is scheduled for Monday. I am a bit nervous about it as I have never been under general anesthesia. Please say a prayer that all goes well and that I will be calm that day. Sometimes my anxiety gets the best of me, so I definitely need to remain calm. Hopefully after this all will be good with my body. I turned 30 and literally everything seemed to go haywire. Well it is late and my eyes are very heavy. Sorry for being a slacker in the blog dept., but things have been CRAZY here. We hope for them to slow down a bit real soon. Take care and have a blessed Wednesday!!!

FFF: Mommy & Me

Many people are doing their Santa pictures for todays FFF, but since Kaleb detests Santa we are doing our own theme. Who doesn't love self portraits!!!! I can't believe that next week is Christmas. I don't have anything wrapped yet. Hopefully this weekend that will all be taken care of. We have had sooo many dinners, banquets, parties to attend that I don't know if I am coming or going. The boys love the Christmas tree and all the decorations. Every morning the first thing Kaleb asks is to turn on the lights. He loves Christmas songs and knows many by heart. It is so precious to hear him sing Happy Birthday Jesus. The kids sang last Sunday and well Kaleb did a great job standing there, but he did learn all the words. Oh well, I get to enjoy his singing all to myself. Have an awesome Friday and a superb weekend!!!!!

Terrific Thursday

Here is a look at the wonderful enjoyment you receive while eating a cinnamon roll and then the not so great looks you get while feeding your baby cereal for the first time. Kaleb loves his cinnamon rolls and Kamden detests eating his cereal with a spoon. I have relented to putting it in his bottle. We tried it again this week and he still seems to hate the texture. Well we will keep trying and hopefully eventually he will enjoy it!!!! I forgot to post Kamden's stats from his 4 month check: weight 16lbs. 1oz. length 24 1/2 " He is probably close to 17lbs. now. The boy loves to eat. Kaleb is right at 30lbs. so Kamden is definitely quite the chunk. I keep telling Kaleb that Kamden will get him back very soon for all the pesturing!! Have a great day everyone!!

Time out Tuesday

I hope that you are all having a good week so far. Our house is slowly getting rid of the lovely stomach bug that has been going around. It is not much fun when you have a 3 year olf and a 4 month old feeling under the weather. Today it is cold and rainy outside. The kind of weather that makes you want to turn on the lights of the Christmas Tree and snuggle up on the couch. December is such an amazing month as we get to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior!!! We all have an endless list of things to do and places to go, but please take time out to remember what we are celebrating. The Lord has blessed us with soo much!! I have an amazing husband and 2 beautiful boys, not to mention a roof over my head and food on our table. We are in the midst of a recession, so it is easy to think about what we don't have, but instead lets think about what we do have. So as you go about your day/week think about these things and hopefully they will bring a smile to your face!!! Have a blessed Tuesday!!!

Crying & Diarhhea: Calgon take me away!!!

As you can tell from my title, it has been lots of fun in our household!!! Kamden started out with the diarrhea and now Kaleb has it. They have both been whiny and clingy which has made me one tired mama. Plus I started on a beta blocker for my vegas nerve disorder. Oh and by they way the cardiologist found 2 valves in my heart that are leaking. It amazes me that so much has happened since I turned 30. I pray that things level out and that we will all be good to go in the coming year. Back to the poop issue: yesterday Kaleb couldn't hold it and went in the high chair. He thought that he would get in trouble so he kept saying I' m sorry mama it was an accident. Well when I stood him up to get him out it all came out of his pant leg. Well I told him to stay put while I proceeded to run upstairs to get a towel. It was all over him so he went straight into the tub. I also had to remind him not to drink the bath water as it is very gross. Boys are too funny!!! Today hasn't been too bad except for Kaleb holding the poo. Needless to say he is quite the little stinker. Tomorrow we head to the Ped. and hopefully things will be back to as close to normal as they possibly can be. I hope that you all had a great Thanksgiving. Ours was very nice. Now we are on to getting ready for Christmas!!!! Let the fun begin!! Enjoy the pix and have an awesome rest of your day!!!
