3 out of 4 sick

The Saturday before Easter Jordyn told us that she had a bad sore throat. I ended up taking her to InstaCare and they confirmed Strep Throat. The next Thursday (I think) Jake wasn't looking like he felt too good, so I got him to the dr. Same thing. Yesterday morning Max tells me that he has a sore throat so I decide to keep him home and take him to the dr. I couldn't get him in til later in the day and by the time we go there I was thinking he was just faking so he could stay home, but no, he has it to! Fun, fun times at our house! Oh, and I was talking to Si the other day and he told me that he had a sore throat before Jordyn had hers but never said anything to me! So, I'm pretty sure he had it, too. I also talked to Rob today and he was going to make himself a drs appointment because he was loosing his voice again. Every year he usually gets sick and looses his voice and has to go on major antibiotics to get rid of his ear infections and bronchitis. He already went through it this year, but it looks like the kids got him sick again!

All I can say is I hope I survive! LOL

BBQ for Josh

My bil, Josh, joined the Marines a while ago and when he was done with Boot Camp he came back to good ol' St George for a visit. It was great to see him again and go to Jan and Dave's for some good food. Unfortunately, Josh didn't feel well the night of the bbq so we didn't see much of him, but we all enjoyed yummy food! Here are some pictures...

I was too lazy to scan my pic of Josh into the computer

The guys making sure the steaks are seasoned just right.
They sure were good!!

Josh did NOT feel well

Updates and some rambling thrown in for good measure!

I know, I know, I know!!! Just about every time I put a new post up I tell you all how much I've ignored the ol' blog and promise to do better! One thing working in my favor to do better about that is I deleted all my facebook games and blocked them all. They were taking up WAY too much of my time and I decided enough is enough!! I signed up for facebook to keep in touch with family and friends, not to play games. So now, hopefully, I'll have more time to blog and maybe even scrapbook some :0)

Ok, on to our update. I'll try to remember everything ;0) A few weekends ago we bought a boat. We got it for practically nothing, because the previous owners didn't winterize it and the engine is cracked. Bad for them, good for us, since I just happen to be married to a mechanic who can fix those kinds of things. Also, we (meaning he) found an engine for alot cheaper than we were expecting. Now all that's left to do is for him to find the time to put it in and then it's clean up the boat time. I can NOT wait to get out on the lake this summer. We have missed boating alot.

Now on to the biggest change in our lives. Rob has rented his own shop and is now mechanicing (is that a word? lol) out of it and not our garage. You do not know how happy I am to be able to pull into my driveway and not have to wonder how many cars are gonna be in my way and where am I supposed to park?? So far he is staying busy and we are working on getting business licenses and all the fun stuff that entails. Oh, the joys of self employment.

Last Saturday Jordyn woke up with a bad sore throat. We headed to InstaCare and they told us it was Strep Throat. Yesterday Jake wasn't feeling well so I took him into the dr and he has it as well. 2 out of 4 sick. I guess it could be worse!

We had a quiet, but fun, Easter. I've never been to into coloring easter eggs and having hunts, but I'm lucky because my mil, Jan, likes to do all that stuff. Soooo, the Thursday before Easter I boiled the kids' eggs and dropped the kids off at Grandma's house and they had a ball dying eggs with her! Then on Easter morning she hid all the eggs in her yard and we went over there to find them. I guess the kids had told her and Grandpa to make it harder this year and boy they did! It took them quite a while to find all the eggs. After the hunt we went home for a few hours and then came back to eat a nice dinner. It was a great day. I forgot my camera, I'll have to get those pictures from Jan and post later.

Next I have to tell about all the babies that have been and will be born this year. First up is James Don, born in January (or the beginning of Feb). Next is Aleksa Lee, born just a few days ago. She was a whopping 9 + lbs! Her mom, Ashten is a tiny little thing, I don't know how she did it. Then in just a little over 2 weeks my sister, Bridget is due with her first baby, a boy. I am so excited for them and can't wait to meet him. Then Dean and Melissa are expecting their first baby, a girl, right around the end of April as well. Wow, babies, babies everywhere!!

Oh what fun we have!!

The weekend of Jake's birthday, Chantel and Bracken came to down to celebrate with us and visit for a few days. Unfortunately, I started coming down with a nasty cold and didn't feel too well, so we didn't do much. One night Rob snapped this picture of our sisterly fun, each of us playing on our laptops!! What dorks! We did take the kids to the park on one of the days, my next post is going to be pictures of that. I have some good ones!
