Showing a little love!

Although I have no pictures of the chillins to show, (yes I know very boring) I would like to let everyone know what an amazing husband I have. Okay so most of you already know that but this Valentines day was no exception. Justin surprised me with one of these.

An i pod touch!

I was so surprised and so excited. If you haven't played with one of these toys you must. They are so amazing!! You can get on the internet check you email, view your facebook page, listen to all your music, view your pictures, even watch movies on it, and that's only the beginning. I have been having so much fun with mine and can hardly put it down. There is just way to much fun packed into this little thing. The best part about it though is that Justin had it engraved on the back. It reads "To the best mom, wife & friend. Love-The Boys." Ahhhh isn't that so incredibly sweet. He even got flowers for me the next day. I sure do love that man!!!

Friday night we went out on a date. We had dinner at Ruby River steak house. That place sure is good. Then we went and visited some friends. It was nice to spend time as a couple. Saturday we went around and delivered our valentines. That night we had our traditional heart shaped pizza for dinner and then made sugar cookies. I love making traditions as a family. I sure do love my boys!!

This picture of the boys was taken almost exactly a year ago. It is amazing how fast a year has gone by. At this time last year we were living in a town house in Mississauga Canada. (Near Toronto.) It was a great experience and a lot of fun.

Last week Kamden and Karson were both sick with colds. Wednesday Justin traveled on a business trip to Oklahoma. Before he left we all went to lunch at Red Robin. I love that place, its delicious and I am glad that they have one in town now. Wednesday night Karson had a rough night so Thursday morning I took him into the Dr. He had a ear infection in both ears and the cold had moved into his chest a possible sign of the early stages of pneumonia. They decided to give him a boost of antibiotics with a shot, and then also an oral prescription. I felt so bad when they gave him the shots. They had to do one in each leg and the Dr had told me it was a pretty painful shot. As they were giving him the shots Kamden put his hat on and his hands cupped over his ears. He told me he didn't like to hear Karson cry. It makes him sad. What a sweetie.

We then headed off to Walmart to get the oral prescription. My doctor actually does a pretty cool thing and emails the prescription to the pharmacy, so it will be ready to pick up when you get there. Or SHOULD be ready when you get there. To make a long story short I ended up waiting for the prescription for 45min. I waited with a very curious three year old and a very sick and cranky baby. When I finally asked the pharmacy what the wait was she asked what name I had been waiting for. When I told her the Pharmacist overheard and said "Oh we filled that prescription over an hour ago. " WHAT!!! Looks like I had been waiting for 45 min because the lady standing at the pick-up line didn't realize that Karson was spelled with a K. (Don't they file by last name anyways?) All I have to say is GOOD GRACIOUS!!! I was so happy to finally get out of there with a prescription in hand.


Well Karson is doing much better, and back to his normal happy self. Kamden now has came down with the cough and runny nose. It seems inevitable that when one kid gets it they will always pass it to the other. Justin is back home safe and sound and I am actually getting some sleep again. We had a nice weekend together.

Karson has been doing this really funny thing lately. He walks up to the toilet and pulls up his shirt and pretends hes going to the bathroom. A couple times he has walked up to the toilet opened it and tried taking off his pants. Who knows maybe we will get him potty trained early.

February Already.

The past two weeks were spent doing some much needed relaxing and playing. It looks as though I finally got rid of my case of the January blues and just in time! February snuck right up on me.

This is just some of the fun things we've been doing.

A couple Saturdays ago we got a fresh coat of snow. We couldn't resist it and decided to all go outside and build a snowman. Everyone helped out and the snowman ended up being taller then me. We used our creativity and found many things in the garage to dress him up with. Fishing polls for the arms, a windsock for the scarf, wood chips for the buttons eyes and mouth, and a small sled for the hat. He looks pretty great out there and is still standing tall. Kamden this year has really been enjoying going outside and playing in the snow. One day he dressed himself in all his snow clothes and started heading out. After I gave him the okay he headed out to the backyard. He would have stayed out there all day but I finally had to make him come back inside for fear of all his limbs falling off from frost bite.

One night we all gathered around and watched the movie Tinker Bell. Yes I know me and my three boys watched a complete girly movie. It was actually very cute and a good movie. So my advice is, boys or not watch the movie Tinker Bell.

This past weekend we went with my family up to Island Park for a relaxing weekend. We played a lot of games, watched more movies, and went snowmobiling. It has been awhile since I last got on a snow machine and let me tell you I had sooooo much fun!!! It is great. Justin took us on some awesome trails. Kamden had a ton of fun riding with Justin. Now all he talks about is the snowmobiles. It was a great weekend.

Sometimes Kamden is hard to understand. So a couple of weeks ago I took him in to the school district for an evaluation. Kamden had so much fun being in the school and was wide eyes checking everything out.(When you take your child in they evaluate everything from development to speech.) Of course they told me that he was developing just fine but they referred me to a speech therapist to check on his articulation of words. (Pronunciation.) Kamden was so excited to get to go back to the school, we went and saw the speech therapist and she was so nice. Yesterday they called me and told me that he was not eligible for the free school speech program because he seemed fine. It was nice to have their opinion and now I feel like I can worry a little less about it all.

For the past couple of days Karson has had a terrible cold. He is having a really hard time sleeping due to his nasty cough. I really hate this time of year for that reason. It seems like we can never make it through the season without someone catching something. Those darn cold they last forever!

One of my goals for the new year is being more involved in my childrens day to day life. It seems that sometimes I get so busy doing laundry, cleaning, and doing things that I want that I forget to sit down and play with them. Well I must pat myself on the back because these last two weeks we have been busy painting, reading, playing with trains and cars, singing, dancing, and just having a wonderful time. I realized that by taking the time to play and involve my kids I became much more patient with them. Karson has even learned how to catch. It has really been a lot of fun and I feel like I am getting to know my two little rugrats so much better.
Just don't look at my laundry/kitchen/bedroom/bathrooms. SCARY!!!

I will end this lovely post with a funny story.
Whenever Kamden gets hurt he runs to me and has me kiss his ouchy better. As soon as I kiss it better he runs off and is perfectly fine. Who knew that a kiss would be the best medicine ever. One night we had some friends over for dinner. Kamden was playing around and fell right on his tushy. He came running to me, pulled down his britchs and wanted me to kiss his rear end better. Guess that gives a whole new meaning to the phrase kiss butt. :)

Oh and sorry about the lack of pictures. Somebody lost, I mean missplaced the memory stick to their camera. Oooops. Guess I better take some time looking for it instead of all this relaxing and playing!
