So last night at dinner Blake said we had a sub in art today. I said oh, so. She showed us a book and it had things inappropriate. I said what was it, he said "no" it's inappropriate. He then told me it was a naked blue lady and it showed her boobs. He was really worried about this. I talked with his teacher, she went and looked at the book and told me the name. Here is the picture that he was so worried about.

It's not as bad as expected, but I'm really happy that he felt that it was inappropriate. It shows that he is listening to the words that are taught to him.

Scary month

A week or so before Christmas Alexus came to us with this bump on her neck, Chuck and I were both REALLY worried, so we took Alexus in. The doctor was very blunt and said that it COULD be cancer, but that she didn't think that it was.She thought it was just some fatty tissue. She told us to watch Alexus, and if she started to act strange,more tired, bruises, not her normal, or the bump got bigger to bring her in immediately. If it wasn't gone in 3 weeks that we should bring her back in then they would start tests. I got this very yucky feeling. I felt like we were up for a crazy couple of years. On the way home Alexus started to ask questions.

A - What is cancer? Me - it means your sick

A - What would I have to do ? Me - take some medicine

A - what if it doesn't go a way and they have to do surgery? Me - well we will deal with it then.

A - I'm scared about the surgery part I have never had anything like that before.

I tried to tell her that everything was going to be fine. By no means was I going to go all the way into what cancer REALLY was and what could happen. I thought that if we have to go down that road I would tell her then. I made sure that I stayed away from the computer. I knew that I could really freak myself out.

The next night some great friends changed their plans and came over so that Dave and Chuck could give her a blessing. I still felt yucky about everything. The next day I felt okay to look at the computer and then I also talked with Chuck's mom. She told me that she had, had some bumps, and that they had gone away. I felt more and more like it WAS just fatty tissue and that everything was going to be fine.

Now almost 3 weeks later the bump is almost gone. I know that the blessing helped. It is amazing the things the Lord can do. We are so Blessed.

Carly and her sleeping positions

At the end of September Carly started climbing IN and OUT of her crib. That is when we decided that is was time to take the crib down. These are some of the places that we found her in the next couple of weeks! She is now in a regular bed after we found one for a great deal online!!

My crazy husband!

There was a ton of snow on our back deck so, Chuck told the kids that he would give them hot coco if they would do snow angels in there bathing suits, so Alexus ran and put hers on, Then started to think about it. Blake said that he would do it in just his pj bottoms. Neither of then really did it, but both sort of tried. Well Chuck decided that he would show the kiddos how it was really done and here is the result!

This what the snow angel looked like afterwards.

I normally like the snow, but now that we live on this big hill, I'm not so fond of it. I wouldn't mind a little bit, but a foot and half is TOO MUCH! Kids kids seemed to have fun in it!

Alexus wanted her hair cut! Not trimmed, not just a little either! It still looks way cute, but I think I like it longer, but let me tell you this hair cut is EASY!!!!!!

My bestfriend

This is my new best friend!

For the last 6 weeks I've been working my butt off. I wake up every morning at 4:45 and go and workout before Chuck leaves for work! I love it. I love coming home and still having some quite time before the kids wake up. For those of you that don't know I'm NOT a morning person, but I've done a great job. I've lost some weight, but what is even better is that my clothes fit better and I have energy! I can't wait for spring so I can start playing softball again! There is a little update on my life!
