The writings on the BED

I know it seems like I have been blogging only about Jordyn lately but she is the one who has been most interesting (I guess that is the right word) in the family so this is the latest. I walked in the kids room and could smell permanent marker very strongly, but no Jordyn. I asked Sadie where she was and she pointed under the bed, which is never a good sign. I got her out and asked if she used the marker and she quickly shook her head no. By this I knew she used it and used it in a way she should be in trouble for. Finally I got it out of her where it was used and then very proudly she told me "see mom it is my bed and now it says J-O-R-D-Y-N." then she got to spend some good time on time out.

First Day of School!!

Today was Jordyn's first day at her Pre-School. She was SO excited and wanted me to keep taking pictures and video for Grandma (that girl loves the camera). She was excited the entire way there and was bouncing around in the car and singing and giggling the whole time, then we arrived... She hung on to my leg and did not want to go. Mind you she know her teacher very well and had a couple of good friends in there with her. That is true Jordyn style though!

When I went back to pick her up she was as happy as a clam. The lesson to day was farm aminals in honor of the Fair this weekend so they sang and talked about animal and sat "criss-cross-applesauce" while they did. They also "made a paper" about animal with 2 legs and 4 legs. she did great and told me " I will not have a hard time next time I go"

Put The Lime in the Coconut...

I think this is so funny especially cause Jordyn will not do this kind of stuff for people, little does she know...

Cody had to go back in to the hospital yesterday to put tubes back into his ears. it was a real simple procedure it took about 7-10 minutes for the surgery and 20 in recovery. He was mad about the whole thing though.

We had to be to the hospital by 6am which ment leaving our house by about 5 so we could stop and get some gas. Cody could not have anything to eat or drink so he was not thrilled by the time we arrived. A very nice old man walked us back to the room and tried giving Cody a teddy bear but Cody punched it out of the mans hands an screamed at him. He would not let anybody near him, which made getting his vitals fun.. He was ticked when they put on his hospital bands, infact when he woke up that was the first thing he wanted, was them off.

He was fine once we left the hospital and fed him some breakfast and apple juice. When we got home he was sleepy and took a long nap and now he is as good as new.

This is the only picture I got of him. He refused to wear the cute little gown they gave him so he was naked the whole time.
