I realize that I haven't had a ton of time to keep this blog updated recently.  My schedule has been crazy!  Between running kids to and from school, doctor's and dentist appointments, dance classes, hat orders, and ROTC/Army responsibilities, I have had hardly any time to do anything for myself.


Just when I thought I had my asthma under control, I kept getting strep throat!  I have had it 3 time in the last 2 1/2 months!  What's up with that?  And I even did things, like get a new toothbrush every time so I wouldn't keep getting it... and I did anyway.  So in and out of doctor's offices I go... Finally, I got an appointment with a specialist to see about getting my tonsils taken out.  I don't know what is going to happen, but I can't keep getting this.  Not with 3 kids and a busy hubby.  My appointment is next week.

Tomorrow, I am going on my first over-night with "the girls" EVER!  Never have I ever left the boys and/or Ben and went out to do something for myself... super stoked!

Sam and Nephi:
Crazy Tie Day

Dentist appointments.  Sam got another cavity, poor guy.  He has the best oral hygiene of all of us (OCD thing) and he is still the one with the issues.  Luckily, though, it was the mirror of the tooth he got the cap put on last year, so now his mouth is even much to his delight.

Nephi had a tooth die, of all things!  You might remember that abscess he got a year or so ago:
See how the right side of his jaw is swollen?  Well, this abscess "traumatized" one of his teeth and killed it.  So the dentist pulled it.  And it was a good thing too, because there was all kinds of infection in there that he got out.  Poor little guy.  But the good news is 1. That the tooth fairy came, and 2. Nephi's been eating a LOT better since the tooth came out.
Nephi showing off his super cool spacer!
This little guy hit his terrible twos at 18 months!  I can't seem to keep him off the kitchen table!
Don't be fooled by that cute little face.... he is full of mischief!

Keeping busy.  Always.
One of his most recent adventures... Zodiac Training
And this picture never fails to make me laugh....
Sometimes, it just doesn't feel fair that he is off having adventures and I am taxiing kids around town... c'est la vie!

But I have my own stuff going on.  So it's all good.  In the next couple weeks we are going to find out what our future hold in the Army... I am super excited and nervous and every thing else!  We will keep y'all posted.

Well, I am off to tend to a screaming babe and pick up Nephi from school.

Have a great day!!

I'm sorry you've been so sick, and you guys have been really busy. I love all of these pictures, especially the one of baby Jake at the table!
