The only part of my body

This is the only part of my body which might look athletic at this point in my life. Yes, I dislocated my elbow. I cannot remember how I did it, all I remember is that for about a week I lived with horrible pain in my arm. I thought I had just hurt a muscle or something, so I did not go to the doctor. I did not want to go in and then just have the Dr. say: " Yep! You hurt your muscle, don't use your arm for a bit, that will be $50 bucks thank you very much!" I remember last Tuesday going on a two hour walk pushing a stroller, then going to a back to school activity at the park with the kids for three hours and then having to cut my Visiting Teaching visit short because I thought I was going to pass out. I came home and threw up! It was not a pretty picture. I kept taking Ibuprofen and finally yesterday I said NO MORE and went in. I am glad I did because I don't think this would have fixed itself.
The doctor "fixed it" although it still hurts like crazy. He said that if it is not "much better" by Thursday (that's tomorrow) to come back and see him for X-Rays. Hopefully I will feel better tomorrow because If it still feels like today I might have to go back in.
I tell you, It is hard being an athlete. Like my doctor said: "If you have five kids you ARE an athlete!!! I think I will retire soon.

Back to School

The girls began school Last Wednesday. They love it! Laura's teacher, Mrs. Cloward is in our Ward. She is a great person. Claudia's teacher Mrs. Ingram seems to be Super as well. We are very happy here. Mateo is learning to read this year. We are having fun with the Frontline Phonics Program. Saul, Titus Mateo and I feel a bit lonely sometimes without the girls. Although it does feels nice to get back in a schedule.

Jake's Wedding

We went up to Logan for Zeb's cousin Jake's wedding. Sorry, I do not have any pictures of the beautiful couple and believe me, they WERE BEAUTIFUL! I just took pictures of the kids. Oh well what can I say, I am a mom! Anyway, the first is of Mateo with Cache (Jarrod's boy). The next one is of all the kids that were waiting outside for the wedding to end. Jason and his girlfriend Brandy watched all of them. I really liked Brandy, she was very nice. They watched Jarrod's, Jess', Ambers', Joe's, our's (but I was there too) and Jason's. We had quite a crowd. The next is of Claudia and Laura with Ambers girls Mariah and Abby and the last is of Claudia and Mariah. Our girls wore the Indian outfits that Janet sent for Christmas. Everyone went nuts over them. We stayed with Amber and had a wonderful time. I really love Amber, she is so solid and kind. Laura and Abby love each other too. I love how our kids are good friends with Zeb's cousins kids. Their pool of cousins is huge because of that. We got to see Matt an Lanette at the reception. That was awesome too.

Daddy and Saul

Zeb LOVES his children. It seems like the more children we have, the earlier he get used to them. He has really enjoyed Saul. It's really cute to watch them play. Saul brightens up whenever his Dad is around.

The Rexburg D.I.

The Rexburg D. I. sometimes has great furniture! I think it is because of all of the BYU-I Apartments around here. There always seems to be an apartment complex remodeling or something. This of course is to our advantage. Now all we need is a house to put it in!

Stinky Sink!

Not only dirty dishes but dirty tushes are washed in this sink. I love my baby boys. Titus is a little big to be bathed in a sink but what the heck! He loves it!

A Responsible Sleeping Babysitter

The other night I had Laura watch Saul in bed for a while. When I came to get him I found that they had both fallen asleep but Laura was as far away from him as she could. She later told me she was worried about pushing him off the bed. That is so cute! She is so responsible.
