Well, between having our computer crash and burn, using a dinosaur of a laptop now, being sick, baby poos, Aunt Candice's birthday, Disney on Ice, a girls night out, more sickness, more baby poos, Provo Beach Resort, attending a funeral of a close friend, spending over 30 hours in a car over a span of 4 days (for funeral), getting to see my sisters and thier kiddos, Conner's Spanish Dance Festival, a pile o' laundry, even more sickness (if you can believe it--uhg!), and even more poos (if you can believe it--uhg! :) would be why I was MIA from the blogging world for a while and explains our chaotic life as of late! Pause--have to go change a baby blowout--crazy how it can creep into the belly button and even manage it's way up to the armpit! Sorry, probably more than you wanted to know....
Ok, I'm back. After a quick tubby, pick up from preschool, feeding, and laundry change, I'm back. I know, I know, you're jealous of the glamorous life I live. What can I say?
I just looked back on a few of my texts to Jared and found a cute one that I want to share. As many of you know, worthy Priesthood holders in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints are able to give blessings to the sick. Well, a few weeks ago, when we were fighting another round of coughs, little Dylan was coughing so hard during the night it would actually make him throw up. After one such episode, he turned to me and said, "Mommy, can I have a prayer from Daddy to help my cough go away?" How cute is that? I think it's kinda neat my 3 year old knows the importance of Priesthood blessings and wanted one in the middle of the night! Yes, this little 3 year old...
Provo Beach Resort
Speaking of this 3 year old, the poor guy was kind of goofing around the other night, playing on his bed and such, and when he tried to get off his bed, took a rather nasty spill with his face taking the brunt of the fall--
Face + Toy Chest = OUCH!!
Not sure these pics show the full effect, but there is a bump on the corner of his eye and a purple line down his cheek.
Here's a few fun pics from the boys going to the Provo Beach Resort with their Aunt. When I was sick, she was kind enough to take them to go do something fun.
Conner being gobbled up by the Shark!
Mmmm, Dylan sure is tasty!
That Oliver, he's a nice bite full!
Ridin' the Waves!
I know what you're going to think after this next batch of pics. Does Amanda ever do anything fun with her kids or is it always their Aunt Candice??? Well, mostly the latter, but I try to have a few fun times thrown in there!
Disney On Ice--Incredible Seats! Front Row and loving it!
Can I please have a fairy God Mother to grant my every wish? Pretty Please???
The Boys' favorite part...TOY STORY!
Wait, I can't forget about the littlest Scoubes boy...he might just feel left out. He's getting bigger by the minute. We had our 4 month check up and he weighed 15 lbs and was in the 38th percentile, and in the 48th percentile for heighth! To top it off, he didn't even cry when he got his shots--I know, amazing, RIGHT?! He's so fun and the older boys absolutely LOVE to make him laugh and smile.
Aiden's first time in the Johhny Jumper...
My easy going, happy boy!
See? I can be fun too. I let them have fudgecicles for dessert one night! Pure fun...
Conner's Spanish Dance Festival Pics. I ended up missing it, but luckily Conner was very understanding and Jared took pics and video. Good thing there's one every year, so I can be there next year!
Back, left boy, with red striped poncho!
Getting ready to sing--a little blurry...
He's in there somewhere amidst all the sombreros...farthest one back?
Well, Thanks for hanging in there with me through it all...I think I'm kind of finally caught up. Wait, will I ever really, truly be caught up? Probably not, but that's OK with me. I learned something at the funeral of my childhood family friend. Something he not only said to his family and friends, but lived and showed it through his actions: "LIFE IS NOT A SPECTATOR SPORT!" But more importantly, "THE GOSPEL IS NOT A SPECTATOR SPORT!" Get out there and do, do, do. So when I'm struggling with my PPD or life in general, I'm gonna try to whisper this to myself. Not that I'll be able to do it all the time, but it's worth a try and some effort--and I'm more than positive it will be worth it!! So, since my laundry is piling higher by the minute, I better go and do...
A baby could get lost in all this laundry! Where'd he go? Oh, he's the smiley thing in the middle :)
