Eclipse silliness

For my birthday My daughter Kadie and Dan Got me a shirt with Jacob plastered on the front and wolf jewelry.
I said fine I will wear this silly shirt to the opening on Eclipse with you too but you have to wear shirts too.
So when I saw this shirt on sale at Target the other Day I made Kadie get one for her and Dan.
We weren't sure if he would wear it or not, because he and his older bother have this Man card thing going on.
Kadie assured me that he would wear it.
I was so surprised to see that he actually wore it.
He might have lost all his Man cards with his brother but gained a million eternity cards with me..
I think Kadie bug is one lucky girl.

Dan trying to look fierce in this picture I just think he looks silly.

On another note the movie was the best by far..
The acting was much better.
Bella seamed less skittish and did not stutter.
I loved the fight scene.
Jasper's hair was terrible but he acted much better.
Did not like the new Victoria.

When I was leaving the theater at 2 am I hear this girl say Jennifer.
I turned around and there was this girl I never met before, She was a good friend of one of my besteysbesties in Germany  She moved her about a year a go and we had never met, just heard a lot about each other
She recognized me from FB.
It was fun meeting her, we will defiantly doing lunch soon.

So have any of you seen The movie yet?
What did you like and what bugged you?
Do tell..

Poor Miss Maddykins..

Little miss Maddy was cleaning off the counter and dropped a tin can lid on the floor and stepped on it.
She cut her foot on the arch 2inches by 2 inches deep.
It was awful we had to run her to the emergency room.
She cut mussel but missed the tendons.

She has 5 stitches and has to be off her foot for 2 weeks.
It's almost been one week and she is doing really well, but cant wait for it to be healed so she can play out side.

I fell like I am drowning..

Everyone who knows me knows I am a very open person.
I am talker that's how I relive stress.
Something happened in my life that is big and not in a good way but I am unable to talk about it.
I believe the decision not to share with others is the right decision it's a very private and personal matter(Nobodies sick nobodies dying  and nobody had an affair)
I am just really struggling with not having control over the issue and having faith and trust in others.
I think that's the main problem is trusting somebody to do the right thing and not to place blame on the other party involved, swallowing my pride and not making it about who is right or wrong.
I just hope I can move forward .
I am just grateful that I have a husband who loves me and our children.
I am grateful for the whisperings of the holly ghost and that I have learned in time to trust my instincts.
I am grateful for a loving Heavenly father who knows how to calm my troubled heart.
I am grateful for the priesthood in my life.

For those of you who pray please keep me in your prayers.
For those of you who don't good thoughts help too.

4. make fabric bowl covers
5.organize my fabrics
6. paint my toe nails
7.Meet with my Daughters soon to be a mother in laws and finish planning the wedding.

My fathers hands

I wanted to do something special for Dale for Fathers day, This year marked his 20th year of being a father.
I wanted to give him something that reflected the love of all his children, something timeless.
I thought hard and came up with this idea.
A picture of his him holding each of our children's hand.
When we gave Dale his gift he was touched, he looked at each photo , Then with a lump in his throat he said you manged to get photos of my hand with all our children.
I new then he truly loved the gift.
For those of you who have read my blog for years will understand why this gift was so touching to him.
For those of you who are new to my blog Our youngest child William died 4 and a half years ago from a heart defect and complications from Trisomy18.
So needless to say it was touching to see this collage of him holding each and every one of our children's hands.
I think it will be a family heirloom for sure.

Fathers day gift..

I have had this idea for a bout three months for Dales Fathers day gift.
I have been gathering pictures of Dale holding each of our children's hand.
Then I plan on putting them in collage frame.
I am not sure how I came up with the idea but when it came to me I realised that it would be perfect because I would be able to have a picture of each of my children  holding Dales hand including William.
I just hope he will love the end result.

Changeing things up..

If things are looking strange on my blog and you think your at the wrong place your not!
I am just trying to figure out a new look and I can tell you right now I am not so sure about this plane Jane look.
I don't think I am a plane Jane girl.
I just have to find the right colors and back ground..

So what do you all think i should do?

Yep I can still sew!

Here is a sneak peek at what I am making right now.
I drafted the pattern from an existing apron I own.
I was a little worried that It wasn't going to work but so far it's working.
I can hardly wait until I am done.
Too bad it's not for me:(
I just might have to me one for me maybe not the same fabric but defiantly the same pattern.

So is anyone making any thing fun right now? or have any fun projects on there to do list?

Bubbels Bubbels Bubbels

I captuered these two pic's of Ben today.

I love them both!!

It's a good day! Yesterday not so good...

Yesterday was awful  Madeline was in the emergency on the base for most of the morning a little of the afternoon.
We found out she had allergy's and some asthma symptoms.
Then 9:30 pm every thing changed Madeline was struggling to breath so I rushed her to the emergency room in our valley
By the time we got there her breathing was under control but still sallow.
They were super full and had no beds so we had to wate and wate and wate.  Normally patent's with breathing issues are priority but there was so many freak accidents Heart attacks, stabbings that Madeline had to take a back seat. I was impressed that the nurses came out every half hour to check her oxygen levels.
Finally after 2 ours she was seen and told that she had the croup that induced an asthma attack.
They gave her meds and sent us on our way with instructions to call the ambulance if it happened again in the next 24 hours.
That was at 1:30 am needless to say we were both sleepy by the time we got home.

Today she is doing much better!
We are making her take it easy, she can only go out for a short amount of time.
So she is spending that time climbing trees.
and blowing bubbles.
Much better day!!

Memorial day fun part 2 { The river}

While we were driving up the mountain we couldn't resist taking pictures by the roaring river.
Dale went and adventured out on the rock first to make sure it was safe before we let the kids out on the rock.
All the kids but Ben got on the Rock.
He just stood by me and said theres no way he was going on the rock.
The raging river was to loud and scary sounding.
Dale decided that Ben should be in the picture and he wanted to show Ben that it was safe so he took Ben screaming down to the rock.

When he finally calmed down and opened his eyes. He said Dad The river is loud and fast but not that scary.
I think it could kinda be run to go down in a raft in this river or some of the other ones we saw.
I have never been river rafting and have always wanted to try it.

My question of the day have you ever been white water rafting?
If so witch river and was it run or were you scared?

Tomorrow will be part 3 Ice cream.

Memorial day fun part 1 {Archangel valley hike}

We had the best day yesterday, we went hiking in Hitcher's pass.
The trail we too was called archangel valley, it is a pretty flat hike on an old mine road in between to mountains.

It was very beautiful and peaceful.

There was a lot of little creeks and ponds along the trail.
Ben and Garrett had to throw rocks in every pond stream or puddle.

We all decided to get in this stream to take a family pic.

Dale and Garrett were panning for gold in a creek.

The kids and Dale decided to take a break and pose on a small bolder.

I decided to jump into a pic with Dale just for fun.

While the rest of us were sitting down by the river the boys decided to play a game of catch.
Benny boy wanted to take a few pictures with me.
When I looked at the pictures after I took them I was pleasantly surprised to see the loving shots I captured.
This is probably my favorite pic of the day..
I just love my Benny boy.
We then started our hike back to the car.
Part 2 tomorrow..
