Miss Misplacement

In high school at the end of the year, my journalism teacher would hand out personal awards, reflecting a characteristic of you. Guess what I recieved, yup, Miss Misplacement. It was funny, but now I finally know how true it is.

Between juggling a 5 year old and a newborn and all the items required to fly said children to our home and back (and leaving one behind-sadness), I somehow misplaced my camera. Yes, my beautiful camera. That I have had less than 6 months. The one that Jesse let me have instead of treating himself to an XBOX360 (which was the same price). Sadness has come over our household. Christopher will make a cute face and I will reach for a camera that isn't there. moment of silence please............................

Seriously I am just sick over this. Of all the things out of the back pack I was carrying that I could've lost, why oh why did I have to lose this? I have one last phone number to call, to be put on a list next to my lost item, that they will probably never really check. I am just praying(and have been since I realized that it was missing) that whoever found it would have the conscience to take it to the lost and found. I really don't deserve (and we really can't afford) another camera if this doesn't turn up. But we have to document Colton and Christophers childhoods, so for me it is really unthinkable to go without a camera. I just feel incredibly guilty and just mad at myself over this.

Sorry it has been a couple weeks since I have blogged (my goal is to blog at a minimum once a week), it has just been hard since I have no new pictures to post and it reminds me of my camera stress! Ug.
Hope your weeks are going better!

Just more pics!

So I've had t re-learn how to do everything one-handed again, including typing, so forgive my errors! Not much happening this week except a little spring rain with puddles that Colton and I thought needed to be jumped in, giving Christopher a baby faux-hawk (cause with all that hair, why not!?), and Colton doing his impression of "the Thing". Sorry I don't have time to come up with a really clever blog. I'm getting ready (emotionally and physically) to take Colton to his dad's for the summer this weekend. Colton, Christopher and I are flying. We have a 2 1/2 hour lay-over in Salt Lake. um, please pray for sanity! Hope everyone is doing well. As always, there are more pictures of us if you click on 2007 on the left side!

Check ups and a booster

Yesterday Colton and Christopher had their checkups and I am proud to say that both of my children have been fed well and are growing at a positive rate according to the National Center for Health Statistics. But the big news of the day was Colton getting his kindergarten booster shots. He was really nervous and took it pretty well. I think it was harder for me to hold him down while having flashbacks of him and his first shots as an infant! After a few tears and big hug, he bucked up and happily munched on his gummies he chose from the Candy Masterpiece! And afterwards, he told just about every person we ran into about how he got "TWO IN EACH ARM" (said in a deep, menacing voice). He also said how the shots pumped up his muscles (hence the muscleman poses in the pictures below)! He's my brave boy and now he's allowed in the public school system!

Christopher's Stats:
Length- 21 1/2 inches (1/2 inch growth)
Weight- 8 lbs 6 oz (1 lb 2 oz gained)

Colton's Stats:
Height- 43.5 inches (56.61%)
Weight- 42 lbs (56.02%)
