Friday...woke up and cade got ready for school. lane is use to staying home on fridays while i take cade to school. i did have to explain to him that he couldn't stay but could wear his pjs. : ) we got home and i eventually got ready for the day. we went and got cade and ran some errands. I told them if they were good for me during the errands they could have mcdonalds. We went to the bank, post office, shirt place (lanes lil bro shirt was peeling off). the boys were really good!!! so i got them mcd's. I was proud of myself because i didn't order anything for me. instead i got home and had a healthy, low calorie meal! I finished posting shutterfly pictures and sent them out, got a picture order ready to order. lane has been saving his money and wanted to get a toy from walmart. so we loaded up in the car to walmart. they didn't have what he wanted so instead he got a big bouncy ball which was only a few dollars. They have been super good today so we went and got snowcones. they already knew what they wanted. : ) cade said when we were leaving "tomorrow I'm going to get fireball!". And the snowcone addiction begins!!! : ) We came home, i fed jude, the boys changed into swimming trunks and we headed to the sassins. Today is baby tay's 2nd bday. The party was really fun. The boys had a great time, and i love being around everyone. Calley was creative and made a cow and horse cakes. taylor is into cows right now so it was cow/country theme (cute). We stayed for awhile, were the last ones to leave. it is hard to leave, of course jude was ready to go to sleep and the boys were wrestling so it was easier to get home tonight. : ) we got home, i gave them a bath and wiped jude down with a soapy washcloth, dressed jude, gave boys a bowl of cereal, brushed teeth, boys went to bed and jude finally went to sleep. man am i tired!! i took a shower and now ready to go to sleep. jude will prob. be waking up soon to eat but i'm not staying up to wait. who knows when it will actually be!!
thankful for ... great friends, loving family, my three baby boys, loving husband, the roof over my head, reliable car, a moody kitty, food in the cabinets, bed to sleep in, loving God, - oh the list goes on!!!

Tuesday...I went to the store and decided we were having a family clean evening. Turns out it was a Cade and Momma clean evening. Lane fell asleep and daddy used jude as an excuse. well he went and looked for heidi's dog (one of the boys opened their gate) then lifted weights. he did clean his bathroom when he got home. We went to Brysons and played for a long time today. I took my laptop to get kambree' pictures done. I did!! here are some of my favs.

Thursday we decided to go to the zoo. The weather was going to be the nicest. I was pretty excited to see the elephants. When we went to the tulsa zoo they didn't have any. So we got to where the elephants should be and the sign said that they were in tulsa!!! Oh well. I really like the night animals and of course the monkeys. The orangatan was showing off for us. I really like looking at all the animals but the orangatan and the gorillas just had a sad look on their face. : ( poor little guys.
Lane assured me that this turtle wasnt real and it couldn't bite him. I would say lanes favorite animal was the bear.
We decided to go into the shipwreck room, i figured there wouldn't be as many kids since you have to pay more. I was right!
We finished looking at most of the stuff and decided it was time for the big tree house!!!
After the museum chad and decided not to do incredible pizza. we spent enough money at the museum and the boys burned some energy and had a blast. We of course didn't mention anything to the boys. We left the museum and went back to the hotel. we walked to bricktown and ate at zio's. yummy!! they had a great deal. we got 2 big bowls of spaghetti and meatballs, and fett. alfredo with chicken for $20! we all enjoyed it. the sad part was that there were a lot leftover and we couldn't take it with us!! it would have lasted another meal!! : ( we went to the park and played for a little bit. cade was wanting to do more of the monkey bars and lane enjoyed the firemans pole. we didn't stay long because it was windy and cold. we walked back - the boys were so good!! We had to take turns at the corners pushing the walk buttons. Oh lane say the horses pulling carts and he was pretty excited. we went back to the hotel. I'm so glad we don't live in an apartment. i feel sorry for our neighbors - we are a loud family. we tried so hard to keep everyone quiet but you know. : )
Here are some pictures that i took today of my 2 month old baby!!!
I have been trying to get picture orders ready and get pictures done!! chad left and said he would be back in a few hours ( it has been 6!) Lane just woke up from a nap and they are watching tv. just got jude down. : )

the boys were not very good today. we have been having problems with them obeying!!
Monday...I slept in and the boys were awesome!! They were awesome all day!! I did some laundry. heidi called and asked if we would go to the park. So we met them there and the boys got to play for awhile. Heidi needed to get back home so i told her i would bring bryson when they started getting tired. they did NOT want to go. : ) they were having a good time. I came home and chad and cade helped me make supper. : ) made me feel good. Chad took the riding lawn mower over to his dads and took cade and lane, so jude and i got some snuggle time. : ) i don't get to do that with him very often.
My mom went to the doctor to take one more test before they got rid of the thyroid, but when she got there they told her she had to wait 6weeks before they could do the test!!! REALLY!!! Last week they told her she would be getting the procedure done in 2 wks and that she would be better in 6 wks!! Makes me really mad!!! I'm wanting my mom to feel better NOW!!!!
Tuesday... Got up and took the boys to school. we were just a little late this morning. Heidi called when i got back and said she would go get the boys from school and take them back to her house. she fed them lunch and took them to the park. the boys said that calley and her crew were there too. they had such a great day and were so happy. lane took a nap not long after they got home. THANK YOU HEIDI!!! it was so nice! i did some laundry - for some reason we still had a lot to get ready for our family trip. I didn't do a whole lot except spend time with jude, relaxed, and went by walmart to get stuff for the trip. i really needed it. felt like how mdo use to feel like before i had to run all over the place. after chad got off work he started cleaning out the pilot. Man the boys are messy!! i went out and helped wipe it down. i came in took care of crying jude, made supper, we ate, chad came home and ate. The boys were still being good, they got in the tub and i got them in bed. Jude was really cranky. i could not get him to go to sleep and knew it wasn't time to nurse. I finally got him asleep and cade came in the room and woke him up, then the phone rang. when i finally laid him down he was awake like 5 minutes later. didn't get much done while chad was lifting. i fed jude and now we are all packed except for a few pairs of pants that are in the dryer. wahoo. i do need to try and wipe down the kitchen before we leave. i already took care of the kitty and we are good to go. it is 12:26 a.m.!! holy cow!!! i better get to bed. i know jude will be waking up soon!!!
what a beautiful day today!!!

Tuesday... I enrolled lane in preschool for next year. we are going to see how he does. i didn't want to but chad said what would it hurt - give him a chance. this is true so I enrolled him. chad watched all three boys while i went down there. it took about 1 and half hours to get it done. i met calley up there and we stood in line together. it was nice to visit with her and not to have to stand there by myself. : ) I came home and had to go back up there for sorority for an hour. chad had the afternoon off because he had to get up at 3 a.m. and work until 10:30 a.m. He took a nap and then took over the boys.
thursday... was mdo and it was windy!! i got my braces tightened! the soreness began : ( april 1st was 1 year since i got my braces on. : ) yeah!!! - about 10 more months! I dropped jude off at heidis while i went to my appointment (first time to leave him somewhere). i was nervous that he was going to be fussy. when i got there he was konked out. so i went and got cade and took him to mdo. when i got back to heidis jude was still konked out. he finally woke up and i came home and fed him. then i got to eat. i didn't get much done because it was time to go get the boys. calley had a pampered chef party that evening. it was nice to get out even though i took jude. calley and keidi took turns holding him. i love pampered chef!!! i'm having a party and hope people come.
Jude also turned 2 months old!! he is getting so big.
Friday...boys out of school, driving me crazy. they were so energetic! I wanted to sleep in but that didn't workout too well because the older boys kept fighting. oh well. we made carrot cake cupcakes and they got to decorate them, i made breakfast burritos to put in the freezer and some in the fridge - (for easy breakfast). heidi, bryson, and rylee came over for a little bit. they hadn't been over her in a while. i had a freak attack later on about the clutter and all boys not picking up there stuff!! they just expect me to do it and i can't keep up! i had an idea for supper but couldn't find the recipe so chad said lets go out to eat. fine with me as long as the boys were going to be good. i was in a funk before we went but got in a good mood. we had a nice dinner, food was good, boys were good. we decided to go by grandpa and gigi's house. it has been awhile since i have seen them. it was a great visit. i prob. talked glennas head off! sorry glenna. : ) we stayed until 10!! sorry again for staying so long.
Saturday...what a night. jude actually let me sleep for 3 hours at a time!!! holy cow!! he has been eating pretty fast too. i actually have time to do things right now. i hope he keeps it up. chad left this morning to go antler hunting. the rest of us slept in -very nice. i got up and got ready for the day. the nazarene church had an easter egg hunt so the boys and i got ready and went to that. i thought we were going to be late. we made it and played some games inside. we found heidi and bryson and hung out with them. the boys had fun. it was cold outside and the hunt didn't last very long - which was good. after the hunt we left, grabbed mcD's and came home. i worked on pictures (orders and collages). Chad got home. he got bored and took a nap, the boys played in the rain, and i fed jude and did pictures. I made supper - which was really good and cleaned up the kitchen. The boys colored eggs. they had soooooo much fun. lane talked non stop!! there were lots of oooohhhhss and aaahhhhsssss. the boys had fun playing with all the colors. they of course showed me everytime they pulled out and expected a "cool" "pretty" "awesome" "ooohh" or "aaahh" : ) i did take pictures just don't feel like downloading them. the boys got ready for bed and chad left (card night). lane went to sleep easy but cade stayed up for a little bit. he wasn't ready for bed. he kept saying he was afraid that there was going to be monsters in his dream. we called uncle lee to put some happy thoughts in his head but he didn't answer so we called aunt sally. you could tell he felt better. he still stayed up for a little bit. i made pacifier attachers and started some laundry. cade finally went to be so i got out easter bunny stuff. oh cade left a carrot cake cupcake and a glass of milk for the easter bunny - his idea. i got the eggs filled and am ready for jude to wake up so i can feed him and go to bed (it has been almost 3 hours since i put him down).
i better check on jude and switch out laundry.
we are taking a family trip next week. just for us! we are so excited.

What better to do on a windy day in the Panhandle!
The video is really fun, but kinda long, so you might consider watching the fist 2 minutes, then using the red time bar at the bottom of the video to fast forward to about 6 minutes in and watch the exciting finish.

Cades first gift to a girlfriend!! He was so proud! And she loved it and even wrote a thank you note!
I picked up boys and got home. i fixed supper which wasn't good. chad told me i should make the collage another way - which really made me angry because i put time in it - time is what i don't have!! Jude was fussy still but chad got him calmed down. I rushed through cleaning. it needed to be done soooo bad!! so got most the house done. chad left and i was left with the boys. still not in a good mood, the night ended up in me bawling and warn out.
Friday...Pet peeve, having to get up when jude is still sleeping!! we were snuggling and chad walked in and told me that i had 5 minutes before i needed to leave to take cade to school. the good news is that cade was all ready for school. : ) Here is a picture of jude asleep in his swing. you have to watch him because he falls to the side. : )
Lane, jude and i snuggled on the couch which was nice. but then i had to go get cade. we have had a good day so far. we at lunch, then i showed cade how he could play with jude. Sticking your tongue in and out. jude smiles and then gets his tongue going. very cute. wasn't long that jude needed a diaper change so i told cade that jude wanted him to change his diaper. : )
Cade being a helper he jumped to it. it was poop so i cleaned him off but taught cade how to do the diaper.
Jude was pretty happy in the floor so we got camera happy. Cade took some of these.
Playing the tongue game
doing some excersises and he found my finger!!

i'm waaaayyyyy behind on housework!! i'm tired of the clutter but how do you stop it from happening. seems like as soon as i pick something up someone put something else down.
Monday... I found out why my mom isn't in the best health. She went to the doctor and found out she has hyperthyroidism. she goes next week to see a specialist. they will decide then how they are going to take care of it. hyper thyroid makes a person lose weight, heart races and many things that for some reason i can't think of!! when they take care of this she should gain 20lbs!! YIPPPPEEEEE!!!! i'm so excited for her to get "fat". : ) I LOVE YOU MOM!!! the doctor also found a nodule on her thyroid. they will do a biopsie on it next week. 10 percent of nodules are cancerous and is least common in hyperthyroid. I also learned that thyroid cancer is slow moving, therefore easier to treat and most of them are NOT life threatening. I'm pretty confident that it isn't cancer. I'm so glad that she went to the doctor!! she has been heavy on my heart and my mind. no matter what she may think - her kids still NEED HER!! it just makes me so happy that we are figuring out what is wrong and kicking it in the butt!! : )
tuesday chad and i decided we would take the boys to the movies. thought it would be fun for the family. do it on the weekday, less people at the show, easier to feed jude if needed. so all day we were all excited to go. after supper i asked the boys to pick up toys (we do everynight before bed). guess what they were not listening. we told them and told them. finally chad made the call to tell them we weren't going to the movies. : ( bummer!! it needed to be done to teach the boys but man i was sad!! maybe next week. Cade was heartbroken. i don't know if lane even soaks in punishment or not. so we did something different. lane fell asleep on his bed. i did my walking tape (finally started!!) chad decided to take jude and go to his dads. this is the first time jude has been out of the house without me. : ( I was glad i was working out to help with the stress of that. i took a shower and cade put the dishes away and we got some snuggle time. chad came back home a couple hours later. i was pretty antsy!! i was ready to have my baby back. he did say that he had a really good visit. glenna finally got some good snuggle time with jude. : )
Wednesday... I found out that a friend of some of the youth from our church in arkansas has a brain tumor at the base of the brain stem. : ( they did surgery today and removed it but had to put him in a coma. I think he just graduated from high school last year!! I pray that God heals him.
I also found out some other bad/good news. my best friend genea - her husband zac was in a car wreck about 2 wks ago. some guy hit him going 45 miles per hour and he was stopped. He got bad whip lash, concussion and a bruise on his brain!!! he has been going to therapy and now can move his neck 45 degrees each way (couldn't move it at all after the wreck.) a bruise on the brain has symptoms of brain damage. He gets dizzy, bad headaches, forgets - messed up short term memory, irritable. she said he is def. not zac right now. : (. the good news is that he will heal (could take up to 6 mths) and he is still with us!!! I ask for everyone that reads this to please pray for Zac, Genea, and Aiden. Genea has a lot on her shoulders - so much i didn't mention. She really needs some strength right now!
Chad and I got the boys a bunk bed today. we have been talking about it so i did it. I also got a good deals on mattresses. They are really excited about their big boy beds!! Chad is putting them together right now (11:24 p.m) He is close to being done. the boys are on the couch tonight but will wake up to big beds in their rooms. they are big!! it is only a twin size but man!! my boys are not going to get that big!! : ) LOL!
better go chad just said the beds are done. plus i need to get to bed!!!
