Trace Turned Four!!! (May 11 i'm just a little slow!)

I can't believe its been 4 years since I had my sweet boy Trace! He is so smart and at such a fun age where they say the funniest things and do the sweetest things! He is really into super heroes right now and couldn't decide on a batman party or a spiderman party, but finally decided on batman! Since we live in a town where there is not much for party decor or ideas, we did what we could! Lucky for me Libby and Jessie were here visiting so they helped out a ton! I love family!

Since it was so hot outside we had to do the party inside.
We made batman masks for all the kidsAnd Klints mom made all the kids batman capes and superman on the other side! They loved them. So glad I have such a talented mother in law!

Batman cake of course! It was yummy, and turned everything blue!
Of course you have to have a pinata to fill the goodie bags

Alberquerque Zoo!!!!

We finally got the internet last week so it no longer takes me hours to upload a picture to the blog!! We went to Alberquerque in March for the weekend with Klint's parents and we had to hit the zoo while we were there! I actually really love their zoo and they also have a aquarium to, so Trace was so excited that he was going to be able to see some sharks! Peyton also loved it so I'm thinkin we are gonna have to hit Sea World on our Cali trip in June! It was also nice to spend time with Nanny and Grandpa! Get ready for lots of pics!

Well its official, Klint got a job in Carlsbad New Mexico at Intrepid Potash as a operational accountant ( I think that is what he called it:) ) He starts Nov. 29 th so he will leave the day after Thanksgiving and move down there. I think me and the kids will stay here until after Christmas, and then move down. Unless I hate being a single mom for that long and then we'll head down sooner. I'm so proud of Klint for finishing his Masters in May and now moving on to bigger and better things!!!! Hopefully with experience under his belt from working there, we will be able to move back in the next five years!!!!!

October Fun Part 1!!!

So since we moved to Cedar our internet connection is in and out. Well I have finally learned to save my blog drafts after every pic!! I have been trying to post this for weeks now, and lose it everytime before I can post it! I love fall, and Halloween, it is one of my favorite seasons! Around the first week of October we went to the Staheli Farm in St. George with some of our good friend the Adams! The kids had a blast. They had a pumpkin patch, tractor trains, corn slide, petting farm, ect ect. It was definitely something I would love to do again next year!!I love these two kiddos

A long stay that quickly turned into a short stay!!!!

Well so much for me catching up on my long overdue posts!!!! Trace gets to go home today!!!! He has done awesome, he's eating, drinking, taking his med's orally, walking, and going to the bathroom, all the requirements for a ticket to go home!!! He is going home with a drain tube out his back that he will have to have for two weeks, no swimming, and rest for a while, but then back to normal activity! He will have to come back in 4-6 weeks for ultrasounds and renal scans and hope everything looks great! He is such a sweet boy he hasn't complained and has said thankyou and please to all his nurses and he has been quite the flirt:) I was hoping to post a pic but don't have my cord for my camera:( so I will post some later.

Trace's "Not So Exciting Day"

So we're up at Primary Children's Hospital today for Trace's surgery on his kidneys. We came up to Salt Lake last night so we could come to PCH this morning. It is my first time leaving Peyton (other than when I had to leave her in the NICU) and a first time surgery for Trace so its becoming a new experience for all of us:) His surgery started at 11:00 a.m. this morning and could go from anywhere from 3-5 hours. Little stinker didn't even care that he was leaving us when the doctors wheeled him away, he's a tough little cookie. We'll keep updates on how he is doing, he'll be up here for about a week, so maybe I'll get caught up on some long needed posts!

At last!!!!

I know, I know!!! I'm such a slacker. I had some pics of the kiddos on my cousins computer and since hers is so much faster than mine, I was able to hurry and throw some on. The first pic is of Peyton in the hospital she is five weeks old in this pic and weighed about three and a half pounds.  The next two are when she is three months old. Then in her car seat she is six months and the last three she is seven months!! And of course my buff boy Trace who will be three in three weeks, so crazy. I love being a mom to these two adorable kids. Peyton is SUCH a good baby and Trace is so sweet to her. I'll post more later.
