January 2010 events

January was a really fun month (other than the fact that the kids have been sick for 1/2 of it. Ok the beginning and end was fun :)). We went over to Nashville and spent the weekend with some friends. We'd gone to the temple and when we came back it was hilarious to see how the kids fell asleep. We also went around the Vanderbilt campus looking at the geese and the squirrels.

We went for a walk the other day and it was cute to see Kaitlyn pushing Cade & Sadie in their strollers. Then this weekend it snowed so I pulled the kids up and down the street in a laundry basket. Our neighbor saw us and brought our a real sled for us to use for a while :)

Mover and a Shaker

I was out of the room for no more than 3 minutes and this is where Sadie ended up. When I walked into the room I saw Cade and Kaitlyn but no Sadie. That was a weird feeling because she doesn't walk, let alone crawl yet. I knew she couldn't be far but I didn't know I'd find her under the chair. She rolls, slides, and shimmies to anywhere she can get to. Time to keep a closer eye on her I guess.

Sorry honey :)

Tuesday I went home for lunch, packed a bag and headed to Ohio for meetings. I'd been driving about an hour when Cindy called and said that Cade had puked five times since I left. Twenty minutes later she called to tell me that Kaitlyn had whoken up from her nap and puked twice. Later that night Sadie puked. By the time I called to tell everyone good night Cindy was beat and I pictured all the kids were sleeping with her with their puke bowls.

The next day Cade and Sadie had diahria and were both extremely needy. I got home that evening, ate dinner and headed to scouts/YM/YW.

Then I came home yesterday and had to tell Cindy that I'm going to India for a couple of weeks in February.

Needless to say Cindy's had better days. I think I need some flowers :)

Hang in there hun!!!

T'was the week after Christmas break

We had a great visit with friends and family over the holidays. We did the cross country treck from Knoxville to Idaho Falls in 30 hours. We spent a very fun week in IF where we tried to become Ninja Warriors, played games, had parties, stayed up late, ate & ate & ate, celebrated Kaitlyns 4th birthday, and had a fantastic Christmas surrounded by family.

We left ~11:00 pm Christmas night and drove 8 1/2 hours to my parents house. There we played a lot of rock band mario kart on the Wii, played a bunch of board/card games, ate like kings again, went paintballing, went to the temple (very nice with family), & just had a fantastic time!!

Finally we started the 30+ hour trip home. Luckily we were able to stop and visit family in Oklahoma City for a day (very fun and a much appreciated break).
