Autism and vaccines...

I never thought that this would become an issue for me and their family. Colton is coming up on his 2 month check - up... This appointment, as many might know, comes with 4 shots for your child. With the other 2 kids, reports of autism and vaccines weren't as prominent. Now with Colton, many family and friends have different ideas on this subject. I have made the decision to get the vaccines, but I am going to spread them out. If you think about it.....4 major shots being put in a little ones body that weighs no more than 12 lbs (Colton is probably bigger than that..haha) might put the body in some extra stress. I have opted to just make more appointments. I still think vaccines are very important...but I don't want to take any chances if I don't have to....

I just wanted to see how everyone else feels on this issue......There is nothing more important than the children in our lives.....

Lots going on....

A lot has been going on this week...and not really that much... I know that is contradicting but that is my life. We have been busy but not really getting that much accomplished. Friday my mom came down to help get ready for a garage sale...Did I say that we had tons to get done and get rid of plus.... doing it all the 3 kids... Saturday morning mom and I got up to finish it up and we had people here by 7 am....it was supposed to start at 8... Bless mom's heart...I had to leave her for about an hour (with the 3 kids and the garage sale) while I went to volunteer at the garden tour. Another thing that went great...due to a great organization. If you missed it...you really did miss a treat. It is nice to see that kinda of yard in CHILDRESS....
After we cleaned up the garage sale...we packed up and left for Groom. We stopped in Clarendon for pizza....(their Pizza Hut is the best I have ever had...) We had pizza and the Chocolate Dippers. If you haven't tried them...you are missing out..
We visited for awhile and then went to bed. Got up for church and then ate breakfast. We packed up again and went to the Deer Ranch where we took the kids riding on the Ranger. Then when we got back my parents and uncle were there ready to cook hot dogs. It was fun. Then the guys went to drive around and mom and I watched the movie "what happens in Vegas" and the kids watched and played another movie. If you haven't seen "what happens in Vegas" you are sure missing out...you got to see it... It is a movie that the boys and girls would even like...
Monday was the regular day...busy taken the kids here and there....and that is pretty much what the whole week was like...I have been really trying to work on losing this weight...You can sure tell when you lose your cardio and it is hard to run.....holy cow...Today is Friday...and Kaitlyn's preschool got cancelled....so we are having a day in a PJ's. I am working SLOWLY on the laundry and just lovin' being with the kids... Since Toby is gone, we are trying to just do what we want to do....

I am scared and anxious about this weekend though. Toby comes in tonight after the football game. Saturday we are going to go to the ranch. I am excited about that...but we are meeting people down there that we have never met. Remember that I have 3 upbeat .... busy kids.... And these people and wives are different. They come from alot of money and don't have kids....so I am alittle uncomfortable about going down there. We might end up at my parents' house.... You also got to remember that I have a newborn that still wakes up at night... It will probably be fine...but it sure makes me feel uncomfortable. Guys don't understand this either. Usually guys get along easy while it comes to ladies....it is more uncomfortable....

I will post the results of this weekend.

Colton update - Turned 8 weeks yesterday - he has rolled over a couple of times - he slept last night for 7 hours... - getting fast - in 3-6 months clothes

Caden update - LOVES school and gymnastics - is really love his brother - school has grown him up

Kaitlyn update - loves to do cheers - lost another tooth - also loves her brother

House update - an engineer came Tuesday....so we will see what he thinks...

By the way - BIGGEST LOSER - love the show and GREY's ANATOMY - can you say - awesome....

have a great weekend...

pictures of kids....

I want to let you know that I have found a great place to get pictures taken. It is Portrait Innovations in Amarillo. You can take the pictures and get them in the same day. And it is very reasonable....






















There is nothing better...

has it been THAT long....

I just wanted to apologize for the delay....

The mother of 3 is more busy than I thought....HOLY COW....but I am slowly adjusting...I for sure am enjoying it....

Yesterday I took all 3 kids to Amarillo to get pictures made...I had to get them done sooo fast... They are for his 1 month pictures....I will post them soon...but Colton just woke up so I have to type fast and quick....

Caden started Mrs Angie's and his first day didn't go as well as I was wanting...I have got to talk to him about sharing and moving to different stations...we have got our hands full....It is my fault though...

Colton is now screaming so I better tend to him before he wakes up the house....steph
