He Just Wants to Dance

Kade has not had a lot of energy today. Obviously, that's what we expected. Don't think it kept him from dancing when music was on though. Ha! Watch carefully or you'll miss it.

Day 12.

I went into Tadd's room this morning and found this. Cute. He likes his stuffed bunny from his Nana.

Then when he realized it was me behind the camera, I got this face...
You're coming home tonight and we couldn't be happier! Holy smokes. I'm a huge wuss, I know. But this whole 2 weeks alone with the kids, pretty much wore me completely down. For reals, kudos to any single mom. I don't know how you do it. Also, to any military families. Husbands and wives alike, it's rough being away from your family or having a family member gone for any period of time, let alone, years at a time. Also, can I freeze time so my boys never grow up and go on missions? Deal.

Day 11.

Today the boys just hung out while I was studying. Do you like Tadd's knee socks? I sure do.

Day 10.

Sometimes, Tadd thinks he's a big kid.

Then, he gets tired.

Day 9.

Forgive the photos. We were at my Aunt Jeny's house all day and I didn't have my camera with me so my phone was 2nd best.

Kade went on a walk today with a bird.
Tadd napped for a bit. (Really, only a bit.)

He's so small

Nickell has been wanting me to post these for a while now. (Since the wedding)

Oh, and the Dodgers.

A Face.

Day 6.

We played outside this morning.
We miss you.

Day 5.

Kade knows how to play nice.
Yay for being half way through this business trip! We can't wait to have you home again!

(I don't know how military families do it.)

As Promised. My Positive Post

So yesterday's post was quite negative. I know. I'm a horrible person for having negative feelings. It's ok. It's something I've come to terms with. But I'm not negative all the time. I promise. So here we go.

I'm glad my husband has the job he has. It has made us nervous a few times but he really does have an incredible job and a great boss that puts a lot of faith in him and is flexible with his school schedule.

I'm SO happy (the indescribable kind) that Kade's lumps are benign. Seriously. Indescribable.

All. Four. Seasons.

I'm glad I have a huge family. This is not something I've always been glad about. There were many, really, many days that I wish I were an only child. But I love each one of my siblings more than they could ever know and miss them like crazy.

Snow storms, thunderstorms, rain, wet cement,...not hail. Oh but also sunshine.

I love that I have a job that allows me to be at home with my boys so often.

I love that my family is healthy. (mostly)

I love my church and the women I visit teach and the friends we've made in this ward. Making friends is hard for me. This is the first ward that we've had friends that weren't related to us.

I'm glad I'm not technologically handicap.

Although I hate it sometimes, I'm glad I went back to school.

Good friends. 'nuff said.

That I am able to have children.

I'm glad I have all my senses.

I'm glad I've never had to take out a business loan.

Netflix streaming through the Wii.

Zumba. That's right, I jumped onto that bandwagon.

Justin Bieber....wait. No. Sorry, wrong list.

Cell phones. What did we ever do before them? Also remember when people that had car phones were "the rich ones"? That's funny.

The internet. Although, as much as I love it, I am equally terrified by it.

IMDb. Again, 'nuff said.

Ok, well there you go. There's lots more. But I fear you may be bored already...

Day 4.

The most exciting thing we did today was take Tadd's blessing pictures. FINALLY! Also, I realized today that I have yet to post about CHRISTMAS and his blessing. Oh man, I am behind.

It's Time.

Sometimes I just need to get things out. Now is the time. So if you are easily offended....maybe don't read this. Sorry. One of my least favorite traits about myself is how easily I get irritated, and I can't stop thinking about the thing that irritates me unless I get it out. (emphasis on the latter.) So here I go.

The mis-use of "then" and "than". Really, it's incredibly simple. I feel like more and more I am reading "then" where "than" should be....and if I'm going there I might as well put the mis-use of they're, their, and there; effect and affect; and this is another huge one, your and you're. Really. Simple. Stuff.

Narcissism-'nuff said. (I feel like there may be some hypocrasy in this one since I am posting a bunch of stuff that bugs me. Like you care.. )

Using the same cup for more than different kind of liquid without it getting full on washed in between. No glass of milk and then glass of water. Sorry. Gross.

When the trashcan outside is full and we still have 5 days until trash day.

Using different fonts in one blog post and blogger not letting me fix it.

Kade is regressing with potty-training since his CT scan last Saturday. I'm pretty close to throwing in the towel.

When I feel selfish for wanting my husband to come home, even though this is a really good opportunity for him to be a part of.

Skype's sound wont work for us. Aaron can hear me but I can't hear him. And yes, my volume is on and up.

When two people are together and one of them is on the phone for a good majority of the time said two people are together.

There aren't enough hours in the day.

Abnormal fonts on blogs. They might make your blog all cutesy, but they also make them more difficult to see. Which leads me to the next one...

Crazy font colors on blogs that you can't see. (I have a feeling this one and the prior will hurt some feelings. Like I said, sorry. It's my opinion though, you don't have to care what I think.)

There's one more that I'm not going to add the details of. But I am going to say that narrow mindedness is involved...I'm not going to get into details mostly just because I don't feel like hearing the contrary argument. I already know it. I've already heard it.

15 items for "less". Let's try fewer. Ok, yep. Fewer is correct. 15 items or fewer.

I know this was super negative but I promise tomorrow to write a much more uplifting and happy and positive post. Promise.

And p.s. I feel much better. Again with my own narcissism. I'm out of control.

Day 3.

This morning Kade cuddled up with a blanket on his little wing-backed chair and watched Planet 51. He also told me he misses Dada.

Here Dad.

I told Aaron that while he's gone I'll post a picture a day. So Dad, here you go.
