Out with the old and in with the new

Well this past week we have had a lot of things happen. JC has been looking for a new truck. His was having a hard time and needed to be retired. We thought that we would run down to the valley after talking to some dealerships in Showlow and talking to some on the phone in the valley. We were thinking that we would just go down Saturday morning so JC could look all day then we would go home Sunday. Well he found a truck and bought it, they had to do some after-market stuff to it so we were stuck in the Valley til Tuesday. It was really sad to see the old truck go, we had so many wonderful memories in it with our family.

After surgery

The next out with the old was Yesterday we had Sadie's tonsils removed. She had to be there at 6 am, which means we had to leave at 5am to get there. Candice (JC's cousin) came bright and early to sit with Cody, we totally appreciate her!!! Marybeth kept Jordyn over night and all day, Thank you Aunty I love ya tons!!! She did so well and was so brave. They told her that I could come back with her while she was put to sleep, well much to my surprise she did not want me she wanted her daddy so he got all suited up to go back. Then when she woke up I was the one who went back with her so her loving mommy would be the first person she would see well once she started talking the first thing she said was "Can you go and get my Daddy?" I have to say I was a little hurt...but not to bad.

Bed Time Blues

OK please tell me I am not the only Mom out there who's child calls them in a million times at night, "Mama, I need another drink" "Mama, I'm hot" "Mama, my finger hurts" and so on...
Well I came up with an idea. I made Sadie "Bed time Coins" I give her one coin every night when I tuck her in. If she stays in bed and does not call for me or get up she gets to keep her coin and put it in her jar.
If she does decide to get up or call for me she has to give me back her coin. Each one is worth 15 min. She gets one Sunday night through Thursday night. Friday evening we count up all her coins and she gets to trade them in for "stay up late time" that night, fifteen minutes past her bed time for each coin she has earned. She also has the chance to win a bonus 15 min coin. If she stays in her bed every night and gets all 5 coins in her jar she gets the red bonus coin. (That way it makes and even hour and a half to stay up past her bed time).

I will let you know in a few weeks how it is working!

A little bit of nothing

Well things have been crazy around here with school getting ready to be over with. Sadie has been totally unmotivated to get up and go to school or do any homework let me tell you how fun that has been. She is ready for a break from all her hard work, and to enjoy her summer vacation!

Jordyn is a busy little thing she has been really into helping me wether it is making cookies or hanging laundry. Cody is changing so much, he is really starting to say lots of words his favorites are Papa, Jojo (jordyn) and nana (banana).

My Parents are FINALLY comming to visit us, I think that the road from Phx. to St. Johns must be a lot longer then the road from St. Johns to Phx. The girls are so excited to see them, even though we were just there a few weeks ago. It should be fun to hang out with them!
