Night of Firsts.........

Well tonight was a night of many firsts it was my first night back to work , Danny's first night alone with the kids, and there fore my first night away from Colton. It has been a couple of very emotional days leading up to tonight but it has turned out to not be as bad as I thought it would be. I was swamped so the first part of the night went by fast, I talked to Danny twice and everything was going good so far on there end. I am just curious to see how the middle of the night feeding went and if Danny has gotten any sleep. I am a little worried to see how much sleep I get this morning I just hope I will be functional when I have to come back tonight.

I cant believe that it has already been five weeks since Colton was born, it has gone by so fast and he has changed so much already. It has been a life changing experience, he is definitely different than the girls. He loves to be held and we have struggled with feedings but we have hopefully come up with a solution that will work. I love that little guy to death and miss them all so much. I am so proud of my husband and his willingness to take them all on and have a great attitude, he is so amazing and a wonderful father!! I love you babe!!

Playing Catch Up!

Well things are going good they are definitely more busy with three kids but hey that is life right!!
any ways we had a great Easter, we died eggs on Saturday and then on Sunday we had a big dinner at moms with a great egg hunt my mom always spoils us she fills the eggs with candy and MONEY, mostly change but heck it is fun!!

Colton ended up getting the girls' cold he is doing pretty good we have to suction his nose out all the time which makes him scream. ( which I hate)
I got my surgery done on my leg today everything went good. I had to get one of my veins lasered close b/c it wasn't working anymore.
Things have been going good for us, my only compliant is that my maternity leave is going by way to fast I only have 2 weeks left which sucks.

Last week for FHE we went redneck fishing. There were a few trout in this eddy that was left in the canal over the winter, Danny had to try out his new waders

Life is Busy with 3 kids!

Well it has been 5 days and we are all still alive. Actually things are going really well so far we are just trying to get everyone use to having a brand new baby here. Kylee is very protective and loves to hold her brother. Lex is interested every once in a while and holds him for about 2 seconds she is most interested in all the things that come along with him. Colton is really laid back except when he is ready to eat and when he is being messed with and doesn't think it is necessary. Here are a few more pictures from today.

Bad Mood

Alright so I am really bad about keeping this blog up dated right now, sorry. I finally decided that I better at least write a little bit, and no better time to write than when you are frustrated.

I guess to start the story, I have made it 35 weeks of packing this baby and I am look and hoping to see and end in site. I had a doctors appointment today, you would think it would be a good thing, but it wasn't. The baby is doing fine and still growing, I have been having contractions for a while, but been putting up with them, and I have previously asked the doctor if it would be possible to have this kid by the end of the month, to which he previously replied he thought it was possible but would make no promises so me being the dumb pregnant lady I am believed him until I brought up the subject again today just to reassure my self that going on maternity leave the 24 would not be wasting it. ( due to lack of pto I am only going to be able to take a month off) so anyways he proceeds to tell me he will be gone next week and my next appointment won't be until the 24th at which time I will be 37 weeks. So having a baby by the end of the month will be up in the air until that appointment unless I go on my own before then. And on top of that my normally mellow girls were OUT OF CONTROL. Needless to say I have been in a bad mood for the rest of the day.

As for our happenings for the month we have all been plugging along waiting for the weather to get nice outside so we don't have to be cooped up in the house any more. Danny was able to go fishing with his friend to Chester field, they had fun and caught their limit. We played hookie from church two weeks ago and went for a drive as a family, it was fun we went up towardsds Island Park then cut around through Driggs and Victor and took the girls for square Ice Cream cones in Swan Valley, something I use to do as a kid with my family. Here are a few pictures from our tripp. Hope all is well with everyone else and hopefully the next month will not have gone by before I write again.

These are Danny's spoils from his fishing trip.

The girls had fun hiking around Bear Gulch to see all the fun snow forts people had built.

The girls hanging out in a partial igloo.



We actually had to climb down in to the bathroom and boy was it cold!!

How time flys.

It is amazing to me how fast time is going by, work has been really busy so I haven't had the opportunity to update our blog much. If you couldn't tell, Danny was the last one to write on our blog he had to show off his new baby. He is pretty excited about having the Yukon. It has been nice so far. This last weekend we took a road trip to Caldwell to visit Steph, Nate and the kids and also to pick up some baby boy clothes that they are so graciously letting us borrow. While we were there we all took a mini trip up to McCall to see some awesome ice sculptures, I will post the pictures when we get the computer situation at home fixed. (Our desk top died in the middle of Jan. and Danny tried to piece one together but that didn't work so he ordered the parts and is building a new one. He is almost done but in the mean time my back room looks like a computer grave yard. I am just glad he has the knowledge a resources to do things like that to help save us money.) Anyways we had a fun weekend, lots of driving, but fun. Thanks to Steph and Nate for letting us crash at their house, the girls loved being able to spend the night with there cousins.

As for an update on the rest of our happenings, Kylee is loving preschool, she goes on Tuesdays and Thursdays. She is becoming quite the speed demond on her bike, I am a little nervous to see how she does when she actually rides it outside. Alex hates the days that Kylee has preschool she cries most days and wants to go to school with the big kids, she is slowly getting better but misses her big sis. She love to take care of her babies, I think she will be lots of help when our new one arrives. Danny is staying busy with work, he is taking on more responsibilities with the IT aspect of their company. In his spare time he is enjoying church Basketball, they have practice on Tuesdays and games on Thursday, there record isn't that great but they are having a fun time playing anyways. As for me I am continuing to adjust to my monstrous belly,( I am carrying this kid straight out front, completely different from the girls.) I struggle on a daily basis to tie my shoes let alone get socks on my swollen feet, so much for keeping my toe nails painted. Other than not being able to bend over the pregnancy is going extremely well, everything with the baby is looking good and my health has been good except for my horrible habit of wanting to sleep all the time. I am still working part time and I am so excited they finally released me from being ward chorister I guess four months late is better than never right!! I am also staying busy with Young Women's and I enjoy my girls they are so much fun. Well I guess I have rambled enough for one day. Thanks for reading.

These are pictures of our new ride. We traded in the Buick on something a little bigger. We got it last Saturday and really like it so far. I haven't driven it much, because Danny keeps taking it to work.

Our fleet. The only thing missing is Danny's motorcycle

New Year new experiences

Well, time just keeps going by faster and faster. The last two weeks have been going by pretty fast we didn't have anything two out of the ordinary lex got sick over new years and I tried to keep up with the house work and all that jazz. Our most exciting and crazy thing happened on Thursday the 9th Kylee had her first day of preschool.she was so excited and she loved it. On the other hand mom was a little worried and Alexis freaked out. She is attending the preschool that the high school provides. Lex and I took her to school walked her in and when it was time for us to leave lex just started bawling, there was no way we were going to leave sister there. It took her a bout 10 min to finally calm down. We ended up going to visit Grandma Jensen at work, and then did a little shopping. By the time we were done it was time to pick sister up, we went back to the school and went in to get her. This time it was Kylee that wasn't happy, she was not ready to go but left with out a freak out, thank goodness!! Here are a few pics from her first day.
