Wow, after several years ive decided to try and resurrect this little blog of mine. I recently told a friend I missed having a place to write. Then out of nowhere a blog "challenge" if you will came about on a public group im in. So here I am and I'm going to try and keep this thing going. Bare with me as I make changes and update content. Feel free to sift through my old posts, you just might learn something new about me....

Quilts for kids

I heard about quilts for kids through Shriner's children's hospital. We received a quilt from them when Eli was just a few weeks old and getting his first set of casts. I quickly looked into the organization and ordered my free kit to sew. Shortly after quilts for kids teamed up with Downey and is nice a huge champaign. Here is my quilt for a girl that they sent, and an extra quilt I made to send with it.

So many changes!

Life has been full of lots of changes for our family lately. The easiest way to share them is through a list, so here we go.... -- kris got a second job, he now works at fed ex and a auto supply warehouse called car quest. -- I quit my new job. He works 60hrs a week, so I want to be home with our kids. -- the hubs got me an iPad, which I am currently blogging on. -- my little brother will be home from college for 6 weeks this summer! -- Eli is rolling over, babbling a lot, and starting to teethe, and wears 6 months clothes as of this week. -- I am looking into a soccer toddler class or swim lessons for aiden. -- I've already completed 12 books this year, currently reading "Bloom" by fellow blogger Kelle Hampton. -- now that I'm going to be staying home I need to stay active and lose weight.... Hello daily walks! -- my brother plans to teach aiden to ice skate this summer -- Maroon 5 has a new cd out in June and I will own it! -- I have decided on a race car theme for aidens third birthday. -- I completed 2 quilts nor quilts for kids. -- mommy and I got pedicures yesterday. -- Eli full on giggles now, it's beyond adorable, he tends to do it when he farts too. I will try to blog more regularly again, should be easier to do with the iPad around, I certainly can balance it easier while holding a baby or with both boys napping on me in the rocking chair. A picture post to come soon. Ps... My spell check button doesn't pop up on my ipad blogger, sorry for any mistakes.

Jobs and Pictures

Me and the hubby both have jobs again!  About damn time!  I have been working for Broadway Cab answering calls for a month now.  I am enjoying it a lot.  It's easy part time work.  The even better news though is that my hubby finally got work.  He stars at FedEx next week!  We couldn't be more thrilled.  He also has 2 interviews for other part time jobs this week, one at an auto parts store and another as a valet.  So who knows what will happen, but it's so refreshing to know we will be on our feet again financially soon enough!

In other news, the boys are great.  I took Eli to see my grandparents, his great grandparents, this weekend.  Here are some pictures of him with Granny.  It doesn't matter how far gone her Alzheimer's is, when she sees a baby she lights up and starts talking baby talk!

Aiden loves to color lately and is getting really good at attempting to color a specific object.  See his picture?

Eli's Progress

It has been 3 weeks since Eli's surgery, and all is well!  His casts were removed and his tiny little incisions healed well.  I could hardly even tell, they look like pin pricks.  We have now moved on to him wearing his Ponseti shoes and bar.  He is now Daddy's little snowboarder.... what a cool dude!

His Dr. always picks him up when he is crying and comforts him

Making his Ponseti shoes look cool.... thumbs up!

Best Easter Ever!

Having kids makes everything better.  Seriously.  Easter was great this year.  Aiden loved dying and finding eggs.  He loved his Easter prizes even more.  He got a big boy bike!  We had a small gift bag for him, with a movie, finger paint etc, but the night before Easter Kris decided he just had to buy Aiden a bike.  So he did. 

It was priceless when he saw it, he yelled "A bicycle!".  Sweetest thing ever.  He still doesn't have the strength to really push the pedals, but he can get on the bike and loves his helmet!

Eli of course is too little to understand like Aiden did, but he sure looked adorable in his bunny suit!  Here are some pictures....

Eli's surgery

Eli had his heel cord lengthening surgery Monday, 3/26.  It went so well.  The Dr even said that he probably didn't need his left tendon clipped but he wanted to do it just to be safe.  He was only in surgery for about 20 minutes and came out perfectly well and starving!  He will be in a cast for the next 3 weeks in order for the cuts to heal and then we will move on to his braced shoes to bring his feet back in and keep them straight.
