We did our Christmas with my mom and little sister about a week early due to schedule conflicts. The kids were so excited at what Santa brought them. Eli got a train table and Amelia got a princess kitchen from Santa. Here are some pics from that..

We did Christmas with Charlie's side on Christmas Eve. It was really nice to see all the family and let the kids play. Here is the kids in their Christmas outfits.

All the kids together

Then on Christmas day we went to our friends house and had lunch and a small gift exchange. After visiting we went and did a few Christmas light tours.

Gabriella Harley Welch

 Sorry it took so long...

Gabriella was born via c section Nov 29th at 7:34 am. She weighed 7lbs 3oz and was 21 inches long (My biggest baby yet)
My c section had some complications. The anesthesiologist couldnt get my spinal in so I got stuck about 6 times and had a dose and a half of meds when it was all through. Boy did that hurt and it is still hurting.
Gabby came out healthy and fine. We got to come home on Thur, but I wound back up in the ER Friday night. I had a fever and was in extreme pain. They ran all kinds of test and everything came back normal. They gave me a heavy dose of antibiotic just in case and sent me home with some also. What is aggravating is that the pain was from the spinal and not the c section itself.

Fever left the next day and my back is doing much better. They antibiotics they gave me caused a yeast infection in my incision though. Thank goodness that is about gone. Not a fun thing to have.

We are all doing pretty well (besides the cold I have now). Eli and Amelia love their little sister. They are constantly wanting to hold her and in her face. Then try to help out as much as possible also. Gabby is having a little trouble sleep some night though. Sometimes its every two hours and other nights she will be up from midnight to 5 am. I am one tired mommy, but it is so worth it.

Tomorrow Is The Day!

I am so excited! I go in tomorrow morning, before the sun comes up, at 5 am. My c section is scheduled for 7am. I will be updating on Facebook for those of you on my friends list. I will update here when I get home. These 9 months have flown by and dragged all at the same time.

Court Day

S, court didn't go as bad as I thought it would. I wound up having to go by myself. Charlie couldn't get off work. I left my house an hour and a half early and got the in plenty of time. Stupid me, forgot to bring cash though. So I drove around downtown, in the horrible fog, trying to find free parking. I couldn't find any so I had to dig through the car for change and ask passing people for change for a dollar.

After finding a parking spot (a block away), I had to walk up 2 flights of stairs to the first level. I went to the building that said courthouse, went through security, and then up to the second floor. Got there and found out I was in the wrong building. I had to go back outside and across the courtyard.

Got to the right building and through security again. Court took for ever and was so boring. Court started at 8:30 and my name was called at 10:30 (While my leg was shaking because I knew my meter was running out of time). Luckily we had a judge who was in a good mood and had a since of humor. My ticket for insurance and license was dismissed and I only have to pay for the speeding one. I also got a month extension so I have until the end of March to pay it all off.

I was hoping to not have to pay anything, but after hearing the judge talke to a few of the other people, I figured it would be easier if I offered to pay a little bit. Of course, I had left my checkbook in the car. I had to go back down the steps and half a block to the car, then back up the steps to the court. All the while waddling. I payed my ticket and had to walk back down the stairs and down the block. After all of that, I was worn out for the rest of the day.

If It's Not One Things It's Another

So yesterday, I went to pick up a friend from some training she had to do. I pulled out of the parking lot and literally 1 minute later I was being pulled over. The police said that I was going 40 in a 25. I dont believe that is possible since I didnt even make it half a block before I saw lights. So now I have a hefty ticket, plus it was in a school zone. On top of that, I didnt have the right insurance verification on me so I got a ticket for that and a ticket because I forgot to grab my license on my way out the door ( I was in a hurry). So all in all, 3 tickets.

I called to see what it was going to cost me to get them payed off and I can't even just pay them. They are making me go to court (more money) and the judge will decide the price. I hope I am not in the hospital on court date since its a few days before my c section. I also hope the tickets wont be too much, but I am thinking it will be between 3 and 400. There goes my kids Christmas!

3 more Weeks!

Gabby will be here in 3 more weeks! I can't wait. My best friend, who is a week farther along, will be going in the day before for an induction( if Ella doesnt come sooner). Our babies will be a day apart, maybe if the same day. I think that is so cook.

We were able to find a baby bed. Its an older bed, but I think it will do until we get some money to buy here a new one. Plus, she wont be moving too much in the first month or so. We were even able to get a nice swing for a good price. I think we pretty much have everything we need for her now. Just waiting on her arrival.

Kids are getting excited also, at least Eli. He keeps asking when Gabby will be here and why its taking so long. I dont think Amelia really understands still. I am hoping that once she gets here Eli will still feel the same and Amelia will be happy. Eli wasnt too happy when Amelia came home.

As far as things go outside of the pregnancy, they are going well. Eli will be 4 in 2 months and I have no clue where the time has gone. He already has told us what kind of party he wants and everything. Amelia will be 3 in 4 months. My babies are growing so fast! It's bittersweet.

Charlie is staying busy at work. They have been commending him on his hard work and thanking him and I for allowing them to us him so much. Hopefully they will give him some sort of promotion soon.

As far as me, I am doing well. Staying busy at home with the kids, babysitting, nesting, and school. I am 6 weeks into my 8 week course. So far it has went realy well. I have an A in one class and a B in the other. Next classes my be fun though. They start on Dec 1 and I will just be getting out of the hospital. I am determined to continue though.

Hope all of you are doing well!

So, I went back to the doctors last Tues and my BP was back down in the normal range. The doctor took me off bedrest and told me to just take it easy. I went back yesterday and my BP was back up again, but he said that he was going to go ahead and let me go home and to just keep taking it easy. I also got to set up my C section time. Gabby will be here Nov 29th around 7 am. That is as long as my BP stays on good terms with the doctor.

I went to put the baby bed up to find that we are missing a few pieces. The bed is old and dropside (we bought a piece that make the dropside part stationary) so they dont sell that type of bed to get parts. Now we have to come up with money for a new bed. That wouldnt be too big of an issue if it wasnt for cable and electric messing up our bills and not wanting to fix them. Between those two bill, $400 of Charlie's check went to that alone. I am so stressed out over all of this. We have a little more than 3 weeks and no bed and could use some other stuff. I know I need to stop worrying and that things will work out, its just hard.

On top of the bed and bill mess, my laptop screen cracked today. Just what I needed. Luckily I have an extra monitor laying around so that I can do my homework still.

Im hoping that I will wake up tomorrow with a new attitude and a better day.

Waiting, Waiting, and More Waiting.

I have another appointment tomorrow. I am hoping to find something out. I would like to know if little Miss Gabby will be making an early arrival or not. My poor body has gone crazy and I don't think it knows what to do.

I have had a horrible headache for at least a week or so. I decided on Saturday that I should go get it checked out and make sure my blood pressure wasn't to high. I was feeling like I was going to pass out our of nowhere. I got to L&D and they hooked me up to monitors. My BP was far from high. It stayed around 105/47 the whole time. I don't think I have ever seen my BP that low. Probably why I felt like I was going to pass out. The weird thing was that, even though my BP was down, my heart rate stayed around 100. I think the bed rest makes my BP plummet, but being up and around makes is jump to high.

I don't know what Dr. H is going to do know, but I hope he tells me something tomorrow. By then he should have my test results and know what happened over the weekend. I still have the headache also. I guess we will see what my BP is running tomorrow.

Back to the Hopsital

Went to my appointment yesterday. My blood pressure was up again and there was still protein in my urine. They sent me back over the the hospital. They were going to make me stay the night, but after about 4 hours, they went ahead and sent me home on bedrest and 24hr urine catch. Dr. H said that if my results came back within range, that they will give me some meds for my blood pressure. If they come back high, we will start talking about delivery of baby Gabby.

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

Hospital Visit

So I went to my doctors appointment yesterday and my blood pressure was a little high, I had protein in my urine, and I was a little swollen. The doctor didn't like it, so he sent me over to the hospital for monitoring. Before I headed over there he said something about steroid shots, controlling, my blood pressure, and delivering early (We would give her a few weeks though).

I got to the hospital around 4 and got to leave around 5. All they said when I left is that baby looked good, blood pressure was back down, and to keep my next appointment. Which is in a week.

So now I go once a week, instead of every two weeks and Gabby may be here mid November instead of the end of November. I guess we shall see on the 18th and my appointment.

Getting Closer

I am now 32 weeks pregnant and only have 7 weeks left! I am so excited to meet this little girl and have my body back to myself for a little while. Here in the last month, I have had tons of Braxton Hicks (some pretty painful) and my feet and ankles have been swelling. The hip pain is starting to become unbearable also. Hopefully the doctor can do something at my appointment today.

We have finally got everything moved to the new apartment and mostly unpacked and arranged. Now just to get Gabby's stuff and put her little area of our room together. I still need so much and have little time or money. I know things will work out though and I am going to try not to stress over it.

I am in my third week of school and so far everything is going rather well. I have a high A in one class and a mid B in the other. I just have to keep up the momentum. I am so excited to do this and have a degree. Charlie was supposed to start with me but they had some financial aid issues and he got in late. He will start in December. Some good news is that most of his credits from ITT will transfer so he only has to take around 7 credit hours and he will be done with his Bachelor's degree!

As far as the kids go, they have been rotten lately. I think its a combination of their age, the move, and the upcoming baby. Plus I also babysit 3-4 days a week and they like to show off to the little girl. Hopefully once things settle down, that they will get back on track with behaving. I am proud to report that Eli is fully potty trained. He only has a few accidents here and there now. Now just to get Amelia to go to the toilet.

Things are going ok with her living with us. Her dog is starting to annoy us because he keeps coming in from outside and trying to pee in the floor. He is getting old so I don't know if he his having bladder issues or what, but it has got to stop. 

Monday, September 26, 2011

We are moved!

We got moved in to our new apartment over the weekend. I am so happy to be out of that place and not have to worry about my landlord deciding to be a pain. Im also hoping that this place will be better on my childrens allergies since there arent as many trees and hopefully no mold. There are some mouthy teens running around, but the apartment complex is in the process of taking care of the kid issue.

Also, school starts tomorrow. I am excited and hope I can pull it off. I'm hoping that I can get my degree and be able to find a job when the kids enter school. Its going to be stressful, but hopefully worth it.

When you think you have friend

I used to be so naive and though they most people were good, honest, true people. I have learned the hard way the past few years, that people aren't who they seem to be. I have had a lot of trouble finding true friends. It has become very apparent to me that this world is circling the bowl.

It is pretty sad when people you think are your friends talk behind your back and then bash you on a public forum. Its also sad that you don't know who are your real friends and who are just sticking around to spy and go back and tell what is being said.

I don't like being the person who has a cold heart because she doesn't know who to trust anymore. That's not me, but I am afraid its slowly becoming me. My heart is tired of being hurt by so called "friends" and my eyes cant bear no more tears for them.

I will continue to pray for those who have treated me like this and I continue to believe that God has something good planned out of all of this. I'm just not sure what it is now. I will continue to pray and try to keep believing that there are still some good friends out there. Hopefully God will bring some of those people into my life.

Change Is Coming....

Lots of changes are coming and I am excited! Since the last time I wrote I have enrolled in college. I will be doing online classes for Medical Administration. I'm hoping to have a career to fall back on when the kids start school in a year or two.

Also since I last wrote, we have found an apartment. We will be moving to a 3 bed, 2 bath a few miles away next Thursday. I am so ready to get out of this place. It sucks that rent has to to go up though :(

We are getting closer to meeting our little girl Gabby. I only have a little less than 11 weeks to go. So far everything is going well. We will discuss setting a c section date at my appointment next month. November will be here before we know it!

Things with my mom living with us are going pretty well so far. Her dog gets annoying sometimes, but he isnt too bad either. We are still working on getting her disability or SSI so that she can get some income.

Oh, and Eli is finally potty trained! I am so happy that I wont have three in diapers. He still has a few accidents, but I am so proud of him. Now to work on Amelia.

Well, that is all the update I have for now.

That Was Sudden...

Well, my mom has already moved in. Its just way to hot for her and her dog in the house with no a/c. So far its going ok. They dog has been somewhat of a pain. Im hoping it continues to go ok and we can all continue to get along.

I had an interview yesterday. I thought it went well, but my friend already got an email back for a second interview and I havent. Thats ok though. Something else will come may way. I have started selling Scentsy though. Hopefully that will help me with some extra money. If you are interested in anything, here is the link..

Lots of Changes to Come

In the next few months there will be many changes coming to our house. Many that also need prayed over. Its going to be an exciting and stressful time. We are strong and everything will work out.

First change will be (maybe...probably) my mom moving in with us. Yes, we are going to try this again. My sister is thinking about moving out and that leaves my mom in a house with no water, a/c, or heater and no money really. I have put in for disability for her and until then (and if its enough) she may be living with us. It will help her out and I can go back to work or school without paying for daycare. I am just praying we can all get along and things dont turn out like last time. It will help that my sister wont be there and neither will all the dogs. Plus there will definitely be no doubt about how things will go since it will be all our place.

Second big change will be moving. We were hoping to buy, but with all our Sallie Mae loans, that looks like it will be out of the question for at least a little while. We are looking to rent a house that is big enough for all of us, but everything has been just so expensive. It wont be as bad after the first of the year and we get some things paid off.

Third big change will be the addition to our family. I am now at 23 weeks and it will be here before know it. I am so excited for this change!

There will be a lot of discussions and praying going on over the next few months, but everything will work out to God's plan.

Tuesday, July 19, 2011


I am now halfway through my pregnancy. I had my anatomy scan yesterday and everything looked good. I am so ready for Nov. to get here so we can meet our little girl. Eli and Amelia seem to be getting more excited about a baby sister. They ask about her a lot.

As far as things getting better with the house...Charlie told the landlord not to bother me and to talk to him about any concerns. I haven't heard anything since. We are still looking to get out of here and are hoping to buy or rent an actual house. I would rather buy so our money is being put into an investment that we can do what we want with. We will see what happens. We have looked at a few houses, but none of them have worked out. We are thinking about buying some land and putting a modular home on it. I have started paperwork on everything and I am hoping to hear something back soon.

Family life...its going pretty good. The kids are getting too big too fast. They crack me up daily. They are so silly. I just wish they would get along more often than not. I guess thats just siblings though. Charlie and I are having a few issues, but they are nothing new and we are working on trying to figure those issues out. I think they are mostly me, but fixing it is the problem.

My birthday is in less than a week. I will be 24. We are going to try to go out and eat this weekend and I am hoping a few friends can come with us. Well, I think that is about all for updating. Hope everyone has been doing well.

Having a Rough Time.

Today has been a day full of crying and melt downs (and not from my children). It's just been one thing after another. If it isnt bad enough that I am constantly worrying about money, because we are struggling in that area right now, things in my apartment start falling apart on a daily basis.

Today it was a big leak under the kitchen sink. Charlie went down to the office to tell them about it and about all the other stuff that still hadnt been fixed and how the maintanence men never fix anything and just tell us not to mess with it. The apartment manager pretty much called my liar on that and told him they would be down to fix it. I guess it made her mad because later today she came down to lecture and threaten me with eviction and DHS. That is the short of the story. She said some pretty nasty stuff. It really upset me and I am still at the very angry point. You DO NOT threaten me with taking away my child. They are well taken care of and loved.

Sorry for the rant. I just thought that if I wrote it out and got it off my chest, it would help me calm down some.

Not A Good Blogger

Wow, its almost been a month since I last posted. Everything has been going good here. Just staying busy. Where to start?

At the begining of June I helped my friend with her wedding. I did the photography for her and a friend and I made her cake. I also made her wine glasses. It was pretty. I already have another wedding booked for Nov. I am going to do the photography and my friend and I are going to make the cake and decorations. I am excited! We are thinking about going into business doing wedding planning and decoration. We will see!

As far as the family, we are doing good. Charlie is busy with work and I am busy with kids and projects. Baby # 3 is doing well also. We had a 3D ultrasound on Sat and it turns out ther e baby is a GIRL! Her name will be Gabriella Harley (Harley is after my friends little girl who died of Apler's) and she will be here the end of Nov.

Trip To Joplin

The trip there and back was adventurous to say the least. The turnpike to Joplin was closed due to debris still being on the road. We had to take the back roads. Well, with all of the rain NE Oklahoma has gotten, a lot of flooding has been going on. We didnt have many problems until we got to Seneca, MO. It was like a raging river there. Everything was flooding. (They wound up having to evacuate. )

Once we got to Joplin, we found the place easily and dropped off all the supplies. We then followed traffic and wound up in the middle of the destruction. It was so heart wrenching. I just wanted to get out and help. It made me sick to my stomach. I had been to those places so many times in my lifetime. We quickly got ourselves back out of there so that we wouldnt be in the way of emergency vehicles.

After we got out of there, we headed back. We were able to take the turnpike, but the flooding was getting close to the road. I just made it through Vinita, to pick up my car, and back towards Tulsa before roads in Vinita started to flood. The had to evacuate a few places also.

Please keep Senca and Joplin, Mo along with Vinita and surrounding areas in your prayers. More severe storms are heading our way this evening and more flooding and tornadoes are likely.

Prayers For Joplin, MO

As most of you probably know by now, Most of Joplin was taken out by a F4-F5 tornado. More storms are heading that way over the next few days. They could really use your prayers, support and any donations you can give.

My mom, sister, myself and a person from the Salvation Army are heading that way with blankets, water, and non perishable foods this evening. Pray for us also. It is pretty dangerous that way.

Catch Up

Not a lot has really been going on around here. We have been traveling back to our home town on the weekends to check up on my father in-law. He is doing much better. Just taking it a day at a time.

We finally got to do our Easter dinner and hunt this weekend. It was a little cold, but the kids enjoyed it. Yesterday, we went to an OKC Redhawks game with Charlie's office. It was a lot of fun. The kids didnt do as well as hoped, but it wasnt to bad.

I have another baby appointment today. They are hoping to hear the heartbeat with the doppler. If not, I get another ultrasound. I wont complain if I have too ;)

Thats about all there is for updating. Hope everyone has been well.

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

Oh Baby Oh Baby!

Had my first prenatal appointment yesterday. Got an ultrasound while I was there. Baby was measuring at 7 weeks 6 days. Heart rate was 176. Estimated due date is Dec 6, 2011. I will most like go in for my c section on Nov. 30.

March For Babies

I will be walking in the March For Babies on May 7th. I have put together a little team. I could use some more donations, if anyone could help. Thanks!

Update in Father In-law

There isn't a whole lot to tell, but right now they are saying that he doesnt need surgery. They think they can conquer the blockage with medicines. He does have to go see a neurologist about the strokes though. Thank you for the prayers.

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

Prayers Needed

My father in-law has been sick and acting off for a few weeks now. The doctor ordered a MRI of his brain and his arteries. The results came back yesterday and they are pretty sure he has a stroke. He also has 100% blockage in one artery and 60% in the other side. They go back to the doctor today to talk more. I am pretty sure that surgery is in his near future. Please keep him in your prayers.

Friday, April 8, 2011


Waiting on my first doctors appointment. Its seems like time is dragging. I still have about 2 and a half weeks to go. I can't wait! I should get an ultrasound. Hopefully there is only 1 in there.

I have asked the kids if they would like a baby brother or sister. Eli tells me a baby brother and Amelia tells me no to both. For some reason, I think it is a girl. Charlie has told me that is what he thinks it is also. I guess we will see!

Monday, March 28, 2011

Looks Like The Medicine Worked Great!

We will be expecting baby #3 at the beginning of Dec! We are excited but scared. Thanks for all the prayers.

5 years!

The love of my life and I have been married for 5 years! It seems like it has flew by, but like it was so long ago. We have been through our fair amount of trials, but they have made us who we are today. They have brought us closer together, spiritually stronger, and stronger as a couple. I thank God for sending my the perfect person. I am truly blessed. Charlie has stuck by my through everything and has supported me with whatever I may being doing. I love you so much baby! Happy 5 Years!

In other news....the medicines are working! I got my smiley face OPK the other day! I am so excited that my body is finally getting back on track. Thanks for all the prayers. They are appreciated.

Saturday, March 12, 2011

Not so good of news

The doctors visit didn't go as well as I had wanted. They did the ultrasound and said that one side didn't stem anything at all and look pretty bad. The other side had one stem and I should ovulate in the next 2-4 days. There is still hope with that little one on the other side. If I dont ovulate, I will have to take more Chlomid. I really hope this month works. I dont want to take anymore meds.

KY trip, Birthdays, and Doctors

So, I got back late Tues night from my trip to Kentucky. It was definitely a interesting, stressful, but fun trip. I missed my family so much. 6 days was a long time. The wedding was beautiful and I met a lot of new friends. The scenery was beautiful also. I hope to go back some day when I can take my family and we have more time. I would love to get to do some sightseeing.

Yesterday was Amelia's 2nd birthday. I can't believe how big she has gotten. I think both of them grew up on me a little while I as gone. My mom took her to Incredible Pizza yesterday(We were at a funeral) and she will have a birthday party tomorrow.

I got back to the doctors today to see if they meds they put me on are working. I am not sure what all they are going to do. I really hope it is working and that I dont have to take anythings else.

Bloodwork is in.

So, the doctor called today and said that my blood work came back with my sugar high and that they wanted to put me on Glucophage (also known as Metformin). I asked what that meant and all they said is that my sugar was high and that could keep me from ovulating and conceiving. I also asked if that meant I was prediabetic. She said not necessarily. I think she is just trying not to stress me out. I go back on Friday the 11th for an ultrasounds to see what is going on .

First Big Trip!

I leave around 11 am Thursday to board a plane to KY for my friends wedding. It is my first plane ride and first time being away from my family for this long. I will not return until late Tues night. That is 6 days away from my babies!
I am starting to get a little nervous. I have never flown before and I am afraid I will miss my plane or something. That would be my luck. I told Charlie they needed to label me as an unaccompanied minor. LOL All in all, I think it will be fun and good to get a break for a few days.

As far as everything else is concerned...I finished my last pill of Provera on Thursday and my visitor came yesterday. I have never been in so much pain before. I am hoping it leaves by my trip. I start the Chlomid tomorrow. I really hope the first round works and we are pregnant by the end of March. That would be an excellent 5 yr anniversary gift!

The kids are doing great. Getting big too fast! Amelia will be 2 in about two weeks. It hardly seems possible. Both of them are so smart. I can't believe the things they have already learned.

2 years!

I can't believe that in June, I will have been blogging for 2 yrs. I am not a avid blogger as some of you are, but I am glad I have this as an outlet. Thanks to all of you have been keeping up with me.

Back From the Docs

So, I went to the doctors yesterday. They did the normal yearly thing and took 6 vials of blood for testing. She is pretty sure I am not ovulating. They are testing my hormones, thyroid, and I dont know what else. I have been put on Provera to start my period back up, since I am on day 53 with nothing. The doctor said the wasn't too worried about it, but she wanted to check everything out just to make sure since I had the IUD and problems with it. She also said it was a little problem if I wanted any more kids. She said I had a few options....that if we wanted more kids and anytime soon that she would give me Chlomid and see if we could get me pregnant. We would also see if that straightened me back out. If we were sure we didnt want more kids for quite a while then she would do other things, but we wouldn't be able to conceive for a while. We decided on Chlomid and trying to get pregnant. If I do get pregnant, and it doesn't straighten things out afterward, we will go from there. I should also know something about the test results in a few days. (If anything comes back abnormal) Please pray for us as I start this medicine. It is all new to me and kind of scary.

Kind of Scared

I have a Gynecologist appointment coming up on Tues. I am a little nervous about it. I am afraid they might tell me something is wrong. I haven't had a normal cycle since I had the IUD taken out in July of 09. I also have some other issues that have been going along with it. I know it is all in God's hands and it will be fine. Its just kind of scary.

Snowed In

Since 11pm, last night, we have gotten 13" of snow. We had what qualified as a blizzard and most of the state is shut down. The road crews aren't even out. There is no point. It has ran around 11 degrees with a windchill of negative 8. Tomorrow wont be much better and it is supposed to get to negative 4 over night.

The kids and I went out to play for all of 2 minutes today. Here are some pictures.

The Appointment

It went well. Doctor said that it seems to be the same size and that there still isnt anything to worry about. We go back in a year to have it checked again. If it hasnt shrunk any by then, we wills start talking options.

While we were in OKC we got to meet up with a few friends and one of my aunts. It was nice to get together. We also did some shopping while we there. Overall, it was a great weekend.

Parties, Doctors and Weddings.

Amelia has her yearly appointment, for her cheek, on Friday. Will be heading to OKC for the weekend. I think it has stopped shrinking, so I am not sure what they will do. Probably just keep a watch on it, but who knows. After her appointment we plan to visit with a few friends in the area. I can't wait.

Eli had an awesome birthday party at Chuck E Cheese. He really enjoyed it. He played, was sang to by the mouse, ate pizza, had cake, and opened gifts. He absolutely loved them all. I have never seen him so excited. Here are some pics

I have been keeping myself busy helping a friend with her wedding. It has been fun. Makes me think about becoming a wedding consultant. Great money and lets me use my creative side.

The New Year...

It has been quite eventful already. New Years Eve we went to a friends house and ate and watched the ball drop. Then we played The Newly Wed game. It was pretty fun actually. Then on the 1st Eli ran his head into a desk at a Verizon store and game himself a nasty bump. Later that evening, Amelia fell backwards and knocked herself out. It was so scary. She stopped breathing, her eyes rolled back, and she passed out. We rushed her to the ER and she is fine. I have such clumsy children.

I said I wasn't going to do any resolutions, but I decided to go ahead with a few.

1. Read the Bible more
2. Eat healthier
3. Get the family on a schedule and in a routine.

Eli's 3rd birthday is tomorrow. I cant believe he is already 3. We took him to Chuck E Cheese tonight with my mom and little sister. My sister has to work during his party, so she wanted to do something with him. He had a lot of fun.
