Last Friday we were talking about being clutzy and I said I hadn't had an accident in a long time.

Last weekend was fun. We celebrated Katanya's Birthday (pics to come) and spent a fun weekend in Utah and it included swimming in an outdoor pool with warm weather, something we haven't experienced this year in Idaho yet. We loved seeing family that we hadn't seen in a long time!

Monday came too soon.....
This was my little "oops." I really knew better too. It was that split moment before it happened that I thought to myself, "I shouldn't be using this knife".

It hardly bled at all (despite the picture) and it only involved 5 stitches on the thumb and 7 on the pointer.

I'm surprised I remained so calm and it didn't hurt that bad. I think I coped with it by making jokes and laughing.

Lesson learned.

My baby isn't a baby anymore

It's late and I'm going to bed. In the morning, my baby will be four. It's just that she's not my baby anymore. Where did the years go?

Sweet Deals

Those of you who know me, I mean really know me, know that I LOVE the store Maurices. So while Jake was doing his homework last week, I was browsing the internet and I came across probably the sweetest deal I have seen in a long time. All of these jewelry items were just $1.99 a piece. Now my only regret is not getting two of everything so I had some spare presents for when birthdays came up.

After thinking it was on the fourth (and showing up) McKay's recital was on Friday (the 11th). My dad had come up the week before and with all the "confusion" he missed the recital. She did great and looked fabulous! Her and Grandma went shopping over Memorial Day weekend and picked out a new dress. McKay just keeps getting better and better.

A hunting we will go....

Last week Jake bought the kids BB guns. I wasn't big on this but I was outvoted and had no say in the matter. So this week, almost every night he's taken them out to shoot at pop cans and birds.
On Thursday as I was running between doctor appointments, work, getting the house clean for our upcoming visitors this weekend, and going to Wal-Mart for groceries before Katanya had surgery on Friday they headed out toward the dirt piles. It was a cute site to see them all follow their dad with there guns.

(Katanya had surgery on Friday for her teeth. She had 8 cavities with 3 of them being very infected. Possibly the reason she was grinding her teeth very bad at night. Every time she has been put under before she wakes up with Stryders (croup). This was the first time she woke up wanted to drink and they let us go 20 minutes later. She was running around by lunch time. We are hoping she is outgrowing the croup and asthma stage).
