Oh I should mention Layton SAT through a basketball game last night! Don't ask me how I did it but he was amazing! He cheered and clapped and even yelled "REBOUND!" He really enjoyed the halftime show, the dancers! He showed me how he could High Kick just like them and was asking for "more"..(More dancing that is!) Then I asked him where Kyle was.. we were directly across from Kyle (Abby's Boyfriend Kyle) and he said "Calliou, There He is" And repeated it several times! He also had a whole bag of M&M's and a whole Bottle of Dr. Pepper. I know, I'm such a good mom. When he needed a breather from the pop drinking I would try and manage to chug as much as I could so the kid wouldn't have anymore pop and it would be "All Gone". If you think he stayed up late cause of all that sugar you would be wrong. He went to bed just fine!!
Oh this picture is another story. Layton was helping me clean out all the old food in the cubboards. and I was busy packing the old food into bags and I hear Layton counting candy bars.. 2,3,2,3,2, (at least he has some numbers right!) then I hear NACK (snack) and as i'm turning around he was ripping open the wrapper and scraffing down the candy bad.. Oh my, I'm gonna have one high denist bill on this child! He took maybe 4 bites and was down with it! Thank God!
And for me, I get to play some volleyball again!! So pumped! They have open Gym in Gibbon on Mondays and I will sub on Sunday nights when they need me.. Like This Sunday!! Well that's it for now, I have one more day left of work and then Friday we have a staff day so I only have to be there until 11!! So looking forward to a nap that afternoon!!!! Well Abby I hope you enjoyed this blog, and I hope there are enough pictures for you. You Should really plan on blogging about your college experiences!!! Like what text books are your favorite, what kind of winter gear you have when your walking across campus freezing your butt off, or which prof you can't understand because he/she talks in a different language!! ha!! Good Night everyone!

Today we were stuck inside as my kids experienced the coldest day in 10 years. No they didn't go outside!! I didn't even go outside.. When I seen frost on the inside of our door I decided there was no way I was going outside! I think Layton needs to get outside soon though, the lil stinker was not on his best behavior today. Can I blame him? NO!! Being stuck inside with mom for the last week probably wasn't on his TO DO list! We did manage to have a little fun though. We played hide-n-seek for about 45 mintues today. He had so much fun, he was always the seeker and I was always the hider. He didn't understand the hiding part. After the fun and games it was nap time for everyone. I woke up feeling a little achy and with a major headache!! we will see what tomorrow brings!
A little about Lane:
ROLLIE POLLIE OLLIE is his new nickname. He just keeps on rolling!! He is also a little couch potato. I have no decided NO MORE TV.. He loves the baby einstien movies but it's getting to be too much so now the TV will be limited. I'm a little worried about this one. He is also almost sitting up on his own. He tips over once and a while but he is a pretty good sitter!
Well that's it for now, i'm going to try and get some rest and then head to the Chiropractor in the morning since we are two hours late again!!!!!

Is it Friday the 13th? No it's not but it feels like it! The morning started with a pooping problem, not by me, lol, but Layton. He kept telling me he had to poop so I knew right away what the problem was, I start a warm soapy bath and I let him soak while I got ready for work. Pretty soon I head, Maoom Poop Maoom Poop Blanket. He wanted his blanket in the bath with him while he did his job. I let the poor kid have the blanket in the bath just so he had some comfort during the whole pooping process. He managed to get it all out and a little scooping by mom and things were under control. Layton felt a whole lot better after he took care of business!
Work was a typical Friday!!! That's all I'm gonna say about that.. Then I come home and Mom cleaned the fish tank out because all the fish were dying. So, in a bowl on the counter were 2 algae eaters, 1 dead fish and 1 alive fish. Good they are up on the counter out of the way of toddlers. NOT..Layton wanted to "cook" so he pulls a chair up to the counter and I, being the smart mom I am, move the fish bowl. Nah, that's no fun. So I move the bowl back so Layton can see the fish, I let him a explore a little and now Brenda has a new friend at her house (Layton is staying there tonight) a dead fish in a baggy!! Lucky Her!!! I'll post videos once they upload

On to happier things Lane is a rolling machine!! He would roll over about a month ago but now he rolls and rolls and it's just fun to watch him grow up!! I can't believe he is 5 1/2 months old already! where does time go!
Layton learned how to use the vacuum yesterday. I was busy feeding Lane and Layton wanted a Nack (short for snack) so I gave him a bag of cheerios, there was just a little bit left. Instead of eating them out of the bag he decided he wanted to eat them off the floor. I asked him to pick them up, he picked up a few then left the rest for me. WRONG! He got to learn how to use the vacuum! He did a pretty good job, missed a few but had fun doing it. He must of had so much fun vacuuming he decided to dump out another bag of cereal, this time it was more than half a bag, I was busy making supper and I pulled a chair up to the counter for Layton so he could help me well I was talking to someone and he opened the box of lucky charms and dumped it all out. So guess what? He got to use the vacuum again!!! Oh well, it was fun and he enjoyed eating the marshmallows without having to dig for them!:) Every kids dream right?

Another curve ball was thrown my way today. I won't be going to Vegas anymore. There was a death in the Pelzel's family (Jessica, Jill, Jamie and Erin's Grandma on their moms side). So we cancelled the trip and I'm getting my money back to go somewhere else. I totally understand the situation. Yes I was all prepared and packed but it can be undone. I plan on using my money to go to Fl with Mom and Jerry to watch the Twins during Training camp!! Lets hope those plans go through!:) THINKING ABOUT YOU PELZEL CHILDREN!!!!!!
I was going to write about something else too, but being a mom of 2 my memory goes pretty fast!! Darn it.. Oh well.. I have a lot of things I have been trying to deal with these days.
when I remember what I was going to write I will come back:)

Ultimitly what life comes down to are the things that make you happy and the type of person you became. After this weekend, I came to the understanding that I could totally make myself miserable and let the people around me make me miserable or I can let it go and do what makes me happy. Although I truely believe the statement "what goes around comes around", I will wait until that happens. Why should I waste my life worry about what is said to me, maybe I should focus on the little lives I have right in front of me. (which is usually my main focus). My new years resolution is to set goals. That will give me something to go after and a purpose to everything I do!
I don't know why but I had all this stuff in my head that I wanted to write down but when it comes time to type it all out, it just doesn't come like I want it too. So now i'm stuck..and honestly, I feel kinda stuck in life right now too. I have two boys, I want to raise them under MY roof, I want them to each have a father figure in their life, and I wouldn't mind having someone in my life too. Not going to push for that but there gets to be a point in your life when you finally feel "ready", I kinda feel that way, I also have had the feeling to pack up and move somewhere new, and start a life. But really I know I wouldn't be able to do that. Job security is a big reason, second I really don't have the money to do that and third, my family is all here!! We will see where 2009 brings me!!!

This week went so fast, I'm not really prepared to go back to work on Monday but I will only be there for 3 days then I am off to Vegas for a 4 day vacation. Now, am I ready to leave the boys? NO.. Do I majorly need a vacation? YES! I'm sure my nerves will be all out of wack.. no wait.. they already are. Some tenative plans include, visiting Hoover Dam, 2009 Electronics Show (Like the shows on TV that so all the new gadgets!!), David Cooperfield Show, and of course all the tourist attractions. I'm very excited! I love traveling and someday I can't wait to do that with my boys!!!
Well it's another weekend with out Layton, I feel some sort of sickness coming on, I think I have an ear infection and maybe the flu, as much as I'm going to miss him 2 weekends in a row, plus next weekend and the weekend after, I think this weekend will be a good time for me to rest! 4 weekends without my big boy is going to be tough on me:( I'll let ya know how Vegas goes.. Now that I don't have Layton this weekend I'm kinda wishing I was there at a different time so I could spend more time with him but it's already booked and paid for!!! If I only knew it was going to be this way!! Well I'm going to bed, I need sleep!!
