Tues March 13th

Last night Olivia was in her room, the twins were in bed, and I was out in the kitchen checking my email. I heard a door open and shut several times before I called to Olivia and said "What are you doing?" She said she was in her room reading a book and I didn't say anything more. I heard a door shut and open 2 more times. Then said "Olivia stop closing the door!" and she said "I'm not even by more door." So I got up and started walking towards her room and Cody was there standing by his door with it cracked open staring at me. That little stinker had crawled out of his crib and was up messing around. The twins have both crawled out of their cribs for the last 2 or 3 mornings. So today we have made a huge change in our home today. The twins are sleeping in toddler beds tonight. I can't believe we are to that point already. This afternoon I took the twins to Wal Mart to pick out their big kid beds. Alex picked out Dora sheets and Cody picked out Tonka truck sheets. We had been given the toddler beds as hand me downs a few years ago and broke them out of storage and I put them together this evening. I put them to bed at 8:30 and they only got out of their beds twice, but they were up talking until almost 10 before going to bed. Not too bad for their first night. We will see if they stay in bed all night.
These pics are after they are asleep already....





Man my kids are cute....when they are asleep, ha! They still aren't down with sleeping with a pillow quite yet. I went into check on them when I was about to take the picture and Cody was turned sideways and Alex was at the bottom of the bed. Hopefully taking away the pillows they will stay on the bed. We will see I suppose. I posted some new pictures on my snapfish site too. Follow the link on the side bar.

On that note, I do have an extra crib that is still assembled and will probably fit in the back of a pick up that I want to get rid of ASAP. It doesn't have a mattress with it but if anyone needs a crib or knows someone who needs one it is free to a good home. I bought it at a garage sale and have had it for 2 and a half years so it isn't in perfect condition but it has worked for us. It is white. Email me or leave me a comment and come and get it out of my hair!
I have loved the weather here the last 2 days. It has been in the low to mid 70s yesterday and today. I went out and ran errands with the kids yesterday morning and early afternoon and then Olivia and I played outside during the afternoon. We washed my car and her little power wheels Jeep and then when the twins woke up we went to the park across the street. My mom came over last night to help out since I had been out with the kids all morning and was pretty sore from lifting them in and out of cars and carts. I have a hard time stopping and slowing down when I know there are things to be done. Today we also went to the park this morning with my girlfriend Aislinn and her kids. Again, love the weather! I had to go to chemo today since their schedule was really full tomorrow. One of the nurses told me that I should check around with plastic surgeons in the Denver area about the option of expanders and not a tram surgery. She said that she has known patients that have been able to go the expander route after radiation with surgeons in Denver. Good to know.... Afterwards my mom and I went to lunch at Lone Star and I got to see my friend Lauren which was nice to be able to catch up with her. The whole rest of my day and been consumed with this toddler bed thing. My girlfriend Alyssa came over around 9pm and helped me assemble a bookshelf and help me hang some hook racks in my closet to finally get all my scarfs off of my floor and put them "away". She has the skills with a power drill. I will have to take some lessons. :-) We are going to be packing and getting ready to go to Salt Lake tomorrow. We are leaving on Thursday. It will be fun to see my sister for the weekend. My kids are all so excited to see their aunt Toni and uncle Doug. Olivia said "I just love going to Toni's house!"

How fun to have new big kid beds and new sheets to boot! They look so snuggly and comfortable. It's amazing how the time flies....

I hope you have a wonderful trip and enjoy your time away...I will keep my ears open for any takers on the bed....you never know when a pregnant person is gonna pop up!

Have fun Eliza, Jon and Olivia and congratulations Alex and Cody!
