What a day!

Well it was going great till a customer that I don't typically care for backed in to my car. I honestly think he wasn't even going to say anything about it either when he walked in. Just started to tell us what he was picking up. Then he tried to tell me he would fix it when I said "No" I will be filing it against the insurance. I'm so mad at what happened but heck shit happens right?!?!

Easter 4/24/2011

Easter this year was extra special! It feel on my birthday :)

We had all the family over for fajitas and a kick butt Easter egg hunt. They girls were all so cute hunting eggs. They were bored with it after about 10 minutes but all the eggs did get picked up even though some of us mommas had to do it.

Here are some pictures that were taken. All by a variety of people. (Lauren, Tawny, Kay and Matt)

Addison wanted to eat the candy as she went

My sweet girl :)

I hope everyone had a great Easter. I know we sure did!!

Getting to big!

Last week I turned Addison's bed in to a toddler bed. We want to get her used to that before putting her in a twin bed. So I went for it and set it up yesterday. She at first did not want to go to sleep and sat by the door for a long while. Finally I went in there and set with her in bed for a bit and talked to her about being a big girl and sleeping in her big girl bed. Told her I would hang out with her till she fell asleep and I did. Once she was asleep I got up and left the room. She slept the entire night in her bed and didn't get up till I went in her room this morning to check on her.

She is turning in to such a big girl. It makes me sad and at the same time happy that she is growing up and becoming more independent. She amazes me with her knowledge and wit everyday!

I love you Addison Lynn. You will always be my baby!

Family Vacation

OK I know I'm a little late on this but forgive me life has been busy :)

A couple of weekends ago Matt, Addy and I took a family vacation down to San Antonio, TX. We had a blast!! Here is what we did as well as a few pictures. I really didn't want to be behind the camera the whole time so there wasn't much taken. Honestly I loved it though. I spent the whole weekend enjoying my family!

Friday - Drove all day! (OK just 5 hours!) Once we got there we took a walk down to the market place where they were having some sort of fiesta! Literally felt like I was in the movie Selena with all the music haha!

Saturday - We spent the day at Sea World! This was by far my favorite day. Sea World was an awesome place to take Addy. Didn't get to watch too many shows cause sitting still is not Miss A's thang! But we did get to play in the toddler water park area where they have a splash pad. I am determined to find something like this locally to do this summer. It was the neatest thing where water shots from the ground and other toys but it drains right away so no standing water to worry about drowning in.

Sunday - We spent the day down town, ate at Hard Rock, went to this really neat children's museum with all hands on toys to play with, went to the Alamo, River Walk and a mirror maze. Oh and the mall haha had to sneak in a little shopping!

Monday - got up and packed and headed home but not before stopping for breakfast on the way out of town :)

Well we lost another one...

Matt and I got pregnant again this month only to start miscarrying again yesterday :(

I also am going to try a new doctor next month. I really did not like the way that Dr Udells office handled all of this. Nothing against the doctor herself but her nursing staff. I was treated very rudely by Amy the head nurse and she was not sympathetic in the least.

I know I'm probably one of the patients that doctors hate cause I know probably more than most know about my reproductive system. Heck it took me 10 months to conceive Addison and now that I know my peek times its taking no time to conceive twice this year.

I also know where my levels should be and I know that (think that) the reason I keep suffering from early miscarriages is because my progesterone is too low. My blood draw yesterday showed my progesterone was 1. It should be at a minimum of 9 for a healthy chance at pregnancy. So I know i need help there with supplements but because I had Addison just fine they don't think there is a problem, and I know there is.

For now I am done with them though and I have made an appointment with a new doctor for May12th. I have asked that they do a full work up and maybe try and help us when were ready to try again. I plan to take a break till fall just to get past it all emotionally and physically :(

Building a deck (part 4)

Last week Matt pretty much by himself installed all the top decking. The deck is now 80% complete. All we have left is to put the door frame back up, move gutter, and stain and seal the deck. Next weekend it should be 100% bbq ready :)

Building a Deck (Part 3)

On to what we did this weekend :)

This weekend we did the bulk of the work on the deck. We built the frame around the deck. This was by far the hardest part thus far. It took us both Sat and Sun to work on this part. We have started laying down the decking but I don't want to post on that till were done.

Building a Deck (Part 2)

Last weekend we started part 2 of building our deck. Which includes digging and cementing in the posts. Matt and I took the easy way out and rented an auger from Homedepot. It took Matt 2 hours to dig 9 (10-12 inch deep) holes. Then we cemented in about 4 of them till it got too dark on Saturday and finished the rest on Sunday. It takes the cement 24-48 hours to set before we could do anything else involving them so we waited till this past weekend to do more framing around them. We also bolted in the header to the house using concrete lag bots.

More to come on what we did this weekend. :)
