Not much.

So I don't feel like much is happening this week but here are a few updates and some cute pictures.
  • First is Jeff and his hand. He is doing better. He got the pins removed and a full normal cast put on, not pink per my request but whatever, he will have it on for another 3 weeks. He isn't groaning about it as much so that is good, and he can finally button his own pants and tie his own shoes so that is even better. How do I feel besides not having to dress him? I am getting over it slowly. A friend reminds me that it could have been worse, but I still have heart palpitations and anxiety attacks every time I open a new medical bill in the mail.
  • Potty Training Dylan! Ugh! I guess it is going okay. He has been wearing just underpants for the whole week, except to bed. I have figured out that I just need to be a better mom and put him on the pot ever hour whether he says he has to go or not because then we do great. Instead of waiting for him to tell me and having it be to late. Hopefully soon he will have it down.
  • Kyle is going through a "if your not going to hold me or play with me I am going to cry till you do" phase. Good times. Which then of course, after I let him cry for a while makes him so hysterical that just holding him won't work and I end up having to feed him even though I know he isn't hungry, which takes even more time, but then usually puts him to sleep. I am hoping he will grow out of this soon.
  • I need a haircut. But I have been enjoying the dry weather, which means good hair, split ends or not.
  • Dry air also means though that Tyler's eczema is in full swing. Not to mentions allergies are awful right now. And since he is allergic to everything air born the poor kid is in a world of hurt. Zyrtec is our friend, along with lotions, cremes, his inhaler, and nasal spray. Poor kid.

When he is smiling, he sure is cute!

Two heads are better than one!

Do you Kung Fu?

Kung Fu Panda is our new favorite movie. Of course that means that we have to Kung Fu all day long. It is also a rule here that when you Kung Fu you have to make a silly face.
This is just a good picture of me and my TyTy.

For youth group the leaders all dresses up in disguises and went and hid around our local Walmart and then the kids were sent out to try and find us. We all had a great time hiding and finding. My friend Kristen rocks, and did my make up really dark and braided my hair. I wore all of Jeffs winter Harley riding gear. It was funny to see kids walk right by me or stand there and debate with each other if I was someone they were looking for.

These are women leaders that hid. We all looked great!

Thanks Kristen! I owe you big!

I just don't want to!

One of the things I really dislike in life along with hair, humidity, and sand, is POTTY TRAINING! YUCK, YUCK, YUCK! Dylan turned two in November so I decided that after the new year we would start him pooping and peeing in the toilet. He decided it was time for this a little while back, but I have been ignoring him because I still don't think I am ready. What do I do if he is ready and I'm not? I just hate dealing with it. Do I risk putting him in underpants and the aftermath of an accident? Do I even dare put him in a pull up, which I don't think helps? Or do I just keep dealing with yucky diapers? I guess I just have to suck it up and get in sink with him if he is ready. Since I am now finding him on the pot by himself and ripped off diapers around the house, some messy some not (good times), I just need to do it and hope he figures it out fast. Did I mention how much I dislike this and don't want to! AAAAHHHHHH!

Are you a Pepper?

I'm a Pepper! That's right. I love Dr. Pepper and I have been trying to go to the Dr. Pepper museum in Waco for a while now. I finally convinced Jeff that we had nothing better to do so off we went. Did you know that Dr. Pepper was invented in Waco Texas? You can find that out and more by visiting there museum

You can tell by the expressions on there faces that they had a great time!

At least I did! A Pepper is what they call a person who loves Dr. Pepper. Are you a Pepper?


It really probably would have been a better trip by myself or with a fellow Pepper. The kids were a bit rowdy after the hour drive and Jeff isn't much for the museum seen, but now we can say we have been and never go back again. Well, maybe.
