So I googled my problem and my posting problem is with my new computer or maybe the new version of Internet explorer not sure. Thanks to google I needed to go to tools and click on compatability view (whatever that means). So this is a test to see if it posts. If it works i'll have no choice but to update! My goal twice a week. It's sad my last post was about birthdays that I didn't post till October and now it's their birthdays again. If I knew how to update from my Iphone it would be more frequent. I can do everything on my phone so I don't use the computer very often, plus the boys are always playing wizard 101 on it.

Let's see if this works!

Happy Birthday Dylan!

I tried to post this weeks ago and for the life of me it wouldn't let me post. I switched to the kids computer and it let me post. Anyways, Happy 7th Birthday Dylan. One of his favorite gifts was Monopoly. He loves to play the board game so we thought the wii version would be fun. He'll be our businessman when he grows up.

He had soccer and back to school night on his birthday, so we celebrated the Friday after his birthday at Chuck E Cheese. Suprisingly the pizza has improved since last year. He got to wear his candle crown at school and he took treats to all his classmates. We love you Dylan!

Baby No More!

Logan had his first haircut. It has been driving Gordon crazy, and I have been reluctant to let the baby hair go. We suprised him on his dayoff. Here are some pictures before the cut.

Parker and I loved his little curls. When we were in Arizona for Thanksgiving he took Sam and Logan in a store and people don't him his baby girl was adorable. He wants people to know Logan is a boy. I told him it's his fault he gave me all boys and I'm just working with what I got. Logan is cute enough to be a girl! Now pretty boy is more fitting.

He sat in the chair like a big boy. He didn't cry or fidget. He was as good as gold.

Sweet boy, say goodbye to your golden locks. I did put a curl in a ziplock. If I ever get around to scrapbooking his baby years i'll put it in there.

This is the after cut. Lots shorter, she finger cut it instead of using clippers. I'm not ready for the buzz cut yet.

Mommy's angel! Sad to see the baby hair go becuase it makes them loose their baby look. Since he is my last baby boy I wanted to hold onto it as long as I could.

A proud Daddy to have a "son" again.

Best present to me

Happy Birthday to me!!! My Mom always asks every year "do you feel a year older?" I definately feel 1 year older this year. The best present is Gordon is out of the hospital. I love him and was scared at the thought of losing him when I realized how serious this is. Gordy had been sick for a week and starting coughing up blood on Thursday. We thought he was congested and coughing hard made him have traces of blood. Well, each day it was worse. He went back to the Dr. on Friday and they said he had Bronchitis and a stomach ulcer, hence the blood. Saturday we went to Parker's football game, he was still coughing and sore. He thought he was sore from the heavy coughing. Saturday night at 8:00 he was in a lot of pain, his arm tingled he was sweating and couldn't catch his breath. We rushed him to the E.R. We really freaked the kids out when we rushed him to the hospital Saturday night. After 5 hours in the

E. R. we found out he had pulmonary emboli. He is home now and doing well. I give him a Lovenex shot twice a day in the "love handles" and he will be on Warfarin for at least 6 months. But that is manageable. We were very lucky. Heavenly Father was watching out for us. His family was in town to see Parker's football game and we are very grateful that they were here to help us and keep the kids and us calm.

Thank you all for your prayers and love. We have felt it and are grateful there are people who care about us.

Sorry Sam

I know I am months after the fact but at the end of August after Dylan's birthday I was spent. Poor Sam's birthday was 4 days later and I couldn't keep up. Football and school had started and the hours rolled into days and now it's October. Maybe by Thanksgiving I'll get around to writing about Parker's baptism. Mother's guilt I still want to do a shout out to my Sammy Whammy in case I ever do one of the blog books he'll be in it. (I know you have to update a blog to have a blog book). Anyways, Sam is now 3 and I am glad to be out of the 2's. Not because they are supposedly the terrible two's but because it was a rough year for him. He got a new baby brother just before he turned two and 3 weeks before his birthday he had his great fall and lost 3 teeth. Here's hoping the 3's are uneventful and emergency room free.
Sam is such a happy boy. He had so much hair. He's 6 weeks old and he needs gel.

Oh my sweet Sam he was such a trooper. It only added more character to him and his speech is fine. I have to love on him everyday because he is so dang cute and loveable.

Daddy's boy hardcore. If he gets hurts while Gordon and I are together I'll stand up and go to him and he runs right past me to his Daddy. H eloves playing football with the boys. He's always on Dad's team (no suprise). We go old school and use socks for flags.

This was one of those naughty moments when he got curious with a black magic marker. What was he doing with marker? I had a newborn who knows what he got into. Sam you brighten up everyroom and I love you to the moon and back!!!

Happy 6th Birthday Dylan

Happy Birthday Dylan!! Can't believe you are six years old and going into 1st grade. This blonde hair blue eyed boy loves to ride his bike and jump curbs. He'll try anything. In six years he's broken 1 bone, had tonsils and adnoids out and had to remove molding clay from his ear cause he just wanted to see what would happen. He is a very social boy and is a very good reader. We love you Dylan!

He loves Star Wars! Thanks for protecting us against the clones and Darth Vader my young Jedi.

Dylan likes flag football and will play again this fall. He is a fast little runner.

I loved him in his cute chicken costume! Those sweet toddler days go by too fast.

He still loves his cheetah named Tiger. Everywhere we go Tiger goes also. Dylan you are so precious and sweet we love you! Happy Birthday!

Rise and Shine it's school time!

First day of school!!! It's a good thing they started on a Wednesday so Gordon could help me get them up and out. They got up good it was hard to get them rolling and pictures maybe they'd be happier in their pictures if I took them after school. Parker is now in the 3rd grade.

Dylan is in 1st grade and excited to be able to play at the big kids toys.

Sam is going to our neighborhood pre-school twice a week in the afternoon so he can do itty-bitty ball in the mornings.
He loves his Handy Manny backpack that Gavin gave him. He feels just like a big kid. He says I can come with him. But not Logan he's too little.

In two years we'll have three in the same school and Logan in pre-school. Where does the time go? We do have cute boys!!

My boys at home! What will we do all day?

Well we went to the park after dropping the boys off. We pushed the babies on the swings, they played on the slides then we went home and put the babies down for a nap. Then Gordon and I celebrated the first day of school and a quiet house.
