The Big 3-0!!! (Sep 22nd)

I seriously can't believe that I'm 30, I remember even in high school saying/thinking that 30 was so old and now I'm here 30 old and fat blah blah. But thanks to my amazing husband I had a wonderful birthday(that I wanted to skip) so Dan took the whole day off and let me relax, I took a couple naps and ate yummy Chinese food for lunch and then I was off to get a massage and facial(2 hours) and then Dan said after we would go get some dinner, well after my awesome massage I checked my phone and had 7 missed calls and 5 texts so I call Dan and he was way worried because I was gone longer then expected so I rushed home expecting they would be in the car waiting for me to take off and I ran inside and much to my surprise it was a surprise party for me, I was shocked and I hate attention on me but I was Happy the house was decorated and the Dan had cafe Rio food it simply was if that wasn't enough there was a knock at my door and as I turned the corner I FREAKED out!! it was my sister from Georgia, wow did I cry like a baby, I seriously couldn't be happier I have been missing her like crazy and this was exactly what I needed. I owe my husband so much he is the best to me and I love him so much and thank him for a WONDERFUL birthday. Thanks to all my family and friends that came to suprise me :)

Luke's 18 month appt

I can't believe our Luke man is 18 months, he has grown up so fast but we have enjoyed every little moment. Luke is our sweet calm baby who is always smiling and giving hugs, he loves playing with his big brothers, likes to wrestle and play outside. Right now he only says a few words(wow, dog, dada) but if he's around a dog or a baby he will jabber like there is no tomorrow. Luke is now old enough for nursery and LOVES it!! Everyday he amazes us, he is a very smart boy and although he doesn't talk much he now how to tell us what he wants, often times he will let you know he is tired and point to his bottle and then wait by his crib to to bed, he also feels that he can get into the pantry and grab what he wants and then will wait by the highchair. I often get asked if Luke is my baby, with is beautiful blonde hair and blue eyes I'm very proud to say YES!! I love that my three boys look different from each other and knowing that they have a little piece of Dan and I in them. Luke bring a calm sense to our family and we couldn't have been more blessed to have him in our family.

Disneyland 2010

We decided to take a family vacation before Dan starts school this August(for his MBA), so we decided to go to DISNEYLAND!!! the original plan was the 5 of us and my mother-in law and her husband but sadly they weren't going to make it but she so graciously offered to take work off and watch Luke while we went. So the tickets were bought the car was packed and we said a tearful goodbye to our baby and hit the road at 4:30 a.m(June 13-17th) the boys and I slept all the way to St. George but once there it went down hill, I woke up with a very sharp headache but it went away as quickly as it came and then all of the sudden I felt nausea's and extremely dizzy, I opened the door and about fell out my head hurt so bad along with blurry vision and dizziness. We sat there for a minute(while I was bawling) and decided to go to Insta-care but they suggested I go to the hospital so long story short I was in the hospital for 4 hours and it was determined that I had Vertigo ( a type of dizziness , where there is a feeling of motion when one is stationary), and all I could think was that I was ruining our vacation :( so 4 hours later I was determined to make it to California but on top of that delay we ran into major traffic and our DVD players wouldn't work oh my it was awful but to our amazment the boys were so good.

We arrived 16 hours later and were very tired, I was given medicine for the Vertigo but did not feel 100% but I was determined to have a fantastic time, the boys loved Disneyland but were a little on the scared side and refused to go on a lot of the rides, our first ride was Pirates of the Caribbean which scared them a little but were pumped for other rides and to see Mickey. We did the 3 day hopper pass and had equal fun between the parks, I really wanted to take them on splash mountain but they refused although they did go on space mountain and only because we had no idea what kind of ride it was ha ha you should have seen there faces. We all had a fabulous time but sure missed our Luke.

Memory cans

I decided to make these memory cans for my sweet boys(mainly for me) I made Jordan's when he was a baby and one for Ryken but I just finished it recently and so of course made one for Luke, the reason I started back on them is because Jordan and Ryken had one last show in tell at preschool and they wanted something different at cool and I saw them in there closet and showed them it and what was inside and they thought it was COOL. So inside they each have different things but mainly stuff from when they were born and from the hospital stuff like the clothes they came home in, ultrasound pictures, booties, diapers(unused), hospital beanie and lots of other stuff, the boys had a blast taking to school and showing there friends and I like it to look back on how small my babies use to be, wow they grow so fast.

Feeling old

I will be turning 30 in September and I seriously think I'm going to have a break down, I remember when I was in middle school(even high school) thinking wow 30 is OLD!! and here I am 11 years out of high school and feeling old and yucky, don't get me wrong I love my life and my wonderful husband and kids but YUCK is the best word to describe how I feel..I look back at pictures of when I was in my twenties and WOW I was a little hottie but guess I didn't embrace it because now I'm a fatty. Well I don't want this to be a negative post so I will stop my whining. There are a few things that I kind of feel like "I'm too old" to do...

1. Scrapbook ( but I love doing it)

2. Going to concerts, I look at the crowed and think crap maybe I'm too old to be rocking out.

3. I recently got my nose pierced( I like it) but a few people have made some negative comments.

4. going to haunted house ( I seriously always have a blast and it doesn't hurt to have a good scare/laugh.

Maybe these are all dumb and I'm just over reacting. Although I do have to love when people tell me I look way to young to have 3 kids.

Happy Valentines Day!!!

We all had a great Valentines Day, the boys had a party at preschool and decorated their own boxes and were pretty excited about the cards and candy. I got them cute Valentines shirts that say The ladies love me! which Jordan thought was pretty funny. My mom watched the boys Saturday night so Dan and I could go out, we did a dinner and movie Valentines night at the District. I got and 10 min massage, a rose and chocolates and then we ate a yummy dinner(with music) and then we got drinks and popcorn and watched the movie Valentines Day, I love it, it was a great movie. Dan and I had a fun night together and later exchanges presents, of course he was sweet and thoughtful, he got me some jewelry from Lia Sophia and a flip camcorder(which I'm stoked about). I decided I'm not the best present giver when it comes to Valentines but I got him mini Bundtinis which are oh so yummy and some clothes.

Happy Birthday Luke!!

Luke turned 1 on January 11th, we had a family/friends party the Saturday before and he had a wonderful time. I can't believe our sweet Lil Luke is a year old, where has the time gone? Luke has be a wonderful addition to our family, he is the sweetest happiest Lil guy you will ever meet(even when he doesn't feel good). Luke has changed so much over the last month he crawls, walks along the couch, he free stands and will take little steps, he as two bottom teeth and now the top two are popping out. Luke loves to wrestle with his daddy and loves to play in the toy room with his big brothers, loves giving hugs and kisses and honestly couldn't be a better baby. We love him so much and are thankful for the joy he brings our family.
