Lots of Stuff to talk about so little time...

I am one of those insane people who gets up at 3 a.m. to go shopping the day after Thanksgiving!! I know I am nuts, Clint makes sure to tell me that every year I do it, but it is FUN!! The last two years I have talked two of my good friends into going with me really it was talking them into last year and this year they were asking me if we were still going!! Amy, Stacey and I headed out to walmart at 4a.m. to get what we thought was their Good Deals!! I had to stand in line in the electronic dept. for over an hour waiting to get my hands on a electronic game (can't tell you in case one of my kids reads this) while it appears that Stacey has octopus arms, and Amy bless her heart froze in the heat of the moment!!! Then we headed to Target I had my eye on the Dyson Vacuum they had on sale, I told myself if they had one left being that they had been open for 20mins I would get it!! They did so I picked it up and called Clint who said ya go ahead and get it!! So I am the proud new owner of a Dyson Vacuum!!

When did I get so lame that I get excited about a fricken Vacuum cleaner?? We went on to Kohls got some Great deals on Toys in there as if my kids really need any more toys, but what would xmas be if all that was under the tree was socks and underwear??

My Big Boy is Turning 7!!

Who time is really flying!! Mason will Turn 7 on Friday and it seems like only yesterday he was born.. He is the sweetest,kindest,most sensitive,caring,compassionate, funny, and loving little guy. He is the Best Big Brother the little boys could ask for. Mallory and Mason would never admit it but they are the best of friends. Without Mason life would be boring he is always finding something funny to say or out of no where willing to give you a hug to brighten your day! He will never say I love mommy or daddy more he always says I love you both the same! He always tells me Thank You for his supper! He probably has the best manners out of any of the kids. He loves to "play mans" with Carter, play Wii, ride his scooter, jump on the trampoline, and build things with lincoln logs, Lego's, magnetix and mega blocks!! He struggles in school, but he never gives up he just tries harder! He absolutely amazes me everyday! We love you so much Bubba and Hope you have a great Birthday even though Mommy and Daddy won't be here to celebrate on Friday we will do it up Big on Sunday!! Have fun with Grandma!!

Lots of Love

Mommy,Daddy,Mallory, Carter,Cavin and Maxton

So here are the details of Maxton's hernia

On Thursday morning out of the blue he began screaming,crying, and quivering all over. Nothing I did comforted him he just kept crying hysterically I began to look over him his feet did he step on something, put him down to see if he could walk, looking at his arms, I then thought he must have a tummy ache so I began to rub his tummy, he didn't have a diaper on since I just got him out of the bath tub and something made me look down at his "private" area and that is when I saw a "huge" bulge to the right of his penis.. It was about the size of a bouncy ball. I freaked out and called Clint who then told me to "calm down I can't understand what your saying" I told him "meet us at the ER".. By the time we arrived at the ER it was gone! I was sure that nobody even Clint would believe me. They came in to examine him and decided to give him some pain meds and get a sonogram of that area.. It did pop back out again after arriving at the ER, but didn't seem to cause him to much pain that time. The sonogram showed no abnormal findings, but we were referred onto the Pediatric Urologist. Our appt. with them was today and they will be doing a hernia repair surgery on Maxton on Dec.10th . This is a birth defect, it is very common and the surgery is pretty routine. It is still surgery so for Clint and I it is very scary. He doesn't seem to be bothered by it now and hopefully it won't be a problem before the surgery. They would have scheduled the surgery for this week, but he seems to be coming down with a cold so the doctor wanted to give him 2 to 3 weeks to get over it before doing the surgery. So that is what we know for now!!

I have added a new song to my playlist.. You should listen to it!! Lately I find myself coming in here and getting on the computer taking deep breaths and listening to the words myself and it works wonders!!
You see lately my patience is being tested ALOT!! Between Maxton getting into everything and when I say everything let me tell you a little story about 2 days ago so you get the picture of "EVERYTHING" .. On Wednesday morning I left Maxton in the living room playing with his toys and brothers came into my bedroom to clean up a bit after about enough time to make the bed I heard the sound of glass breaking so I ran into the kitchen to find my 17 month monkey standing on the counter and a HUGE mess on the kitchen floor. He had crawled up into his highchair walked across the counter across the stove"thank goodness it wasn't hot" over to the fridge pulled the halloween candy buckets off the top of it candy went all over the floor, knocked a glass off which broke into a million pieces that I will probably still be finding 2 weeks from now, on his way to the fridge he decided to play in the coffee and get it everywhere all in the matter of 2 mins, no lie.. As I stand there looking at this mess he looks at me with the sweetest baby face and LAUGHS!!! Yes he laughed!! I really think he is half monkey and half MONSTER Baby!!
So between him and then Carter and Cavin constantly fighting, beating on each other, crying and screaming! I am about ready to scream!! These are my top two problems!
So when I start to run out of patience for LIFE with 5 little kids I come into my room go to my blog and listen to this song and then I think about how sad I will be when they are all gone and I am thankful again to be loosing my patience all day!! But sometimes I do need to be reminded how lucky I am!!


I hate kids TV this time of year... Why you ask? COMMERCIALS!!! Every five seconds a new Toy Commercial comes on and my 3 and 4 year olds start screaming "I want that for Christmas". So about 45 times a day I hear that ear deafening phrase and my patience gets less and less.. I honestly have thought about canceling the cable already and it only Nov. 7th!! I guess we will have to turn the TV off until after Xmas!!! Wish me luck!

It has been a rough day here.. I was in the middle of this post when I had to make a mad dash to the ER.. I know what you are all thinking "AGAIN".. Believe me that is what I said too!! Maxton apparently has an inguinal hernia.. It has been a long day I am shot and I still have to take Mallory to get a haircut, Carter to gymnastics, make supper and clean it up, baths, bedtime, homework. etc.. so I gotta go!! More later

Halloween 2008

So here are the Halloween Pictures from this year!! I had a Clown (Mas) an Old Lady (Mal) a boxer (carter) a spider (cavin) and a frog (Max).. They had a great time and got loads of candy!! And wow was that weather great or what? I mean I don't remember a Halloween so beautiful? Maxton was absolutely adorable. After about 2 houses he had it figured out he would run up the sidewalk, climb the stairs and do his "more" sign to the person giving out the candy, I am not joking when I say that the kid did 35 houses easy never even got in the stroller unlike carter and cavin who made it half way around the neighborhood and started to complain about being tired!! They all had a great time!
