No more monkeys jumpin on the bed!

Here we are all... my fabulous thighs... (don't look too close!) Fur, Adelaide, Lola, and Hyrum, all enjoying some time on the bed.
Hyrum and Adelaide on Hyrum's big boy bed.
For some reason I really love elephants on baby clothes.... not sure why exactly.
St. Patrick's Day. Hyrum wore a green suit thing, Adelaide had a lucky charms outfit on. Sooo c cute! And yes, I did wear green.
Hyrum, Adelaide, and Natalie in St. George. They had such fun together!
And as for me... I gathered up the courage to ask a guy on a date today... I didn't have his number so I had to do it through facebook... wish me luck!!

Illness Update

It seems the children are almost completely cured. They both came down with RSV, and Adelaide was on a breathing machine for a few days. It was pretty intense... with RSV you can't do much for them. I hate Viruses! Both seem to be recovering, but I am in the throes of it now. Not fun. I'm not sure if I'd rather be sick or have sick kids. Either way it is miserable, and I'd be sick as long as they didn't have to. But it never seems to work that way, does it? So for those of you who had us in your prayers, I thank you. This parenting thing only works with a lot of patience and prayer.

A few new obsessions

Lately I've been really into a few things. Number one, the show 'What Not to Wear.' I go through these phases, last time it was home improvement shows, now it is this, and I am just obsessed. I have gone through my wardrobe completely, got rid of things I've had for years, and spent more than I should on a few quality pieces of clothing. And the kicker is, I actually tried EVERYTHING on! That is my new rule... and it really does make a difference. Even though I hate trying clothes on, from now on I'm doing it! I also have a bit of a crush on Clinton Kelly, the gay guy on the show. Why are so many good ones gay? :(
Another obsession, Peanut M&Ms. I don't know how or why now, but I've taken to eating them every spare moment. I know I should just have some self control, but I don't. I found myself thinking I should start exercising, and so I sat on my exercise ball and started bouncing, only to find myself shoving handfuls of those darn m&ms in my pig mouth! So yes, that is another obsession. And I'm not even pregnant so my excuses are non-existent. Here is Hyrum looking stylish for church in his new church clothes that collect cat hair like nobody's business.

I got a toddler bed as a hand me down, and I painted it, and put cute little room themed stars and moons and clouds on it. Then I put hand me down twin sized sheets on the bed... they actually work really well, I just tucked them around and so they stay on nicely. And a few of Hyrum's blue blanket complete the bed nicely. Here Adelaide is enjoying the bed... (sorry! not for a few more years kiddo!)
I had Hyrum try his bed out. He loves it to death. But when I decided to let him sleep in it at night, I checked on him at 5 A.M. and found him curled up on the floor. So he gets the crib a bit longer. :)
Well, it is snowing like mad outside, and both of my kids are really sick with a cold/fever... :( Every single time Hyrum goes with his dad for the week he comes back sick. It is the only thing I can count on Cody for... making the kids sick. Well, adios!
