Ramsey covered in sand and loving every minute of it!

So once they determind I was in the process of having a miscarriage they gave me the option to have a D&C. So I did and now I am feeling fine. I was very sad at first but now Brandon and I are looking at it like a blessing in disguise. We were not ready for another child and so obviously heavenly father felt the same way. Emotionally we are handling it well and it makes sense now why I was almost possitive I should have been 12 weeks along and they said I only measured 6 weeks. Its because there wasn't really a fetus to measure. But of course they weren't going to tell me that until sometime went by and they could make sure of it before they told me any bad news.
So here is a little discription that I found online that kind of defines what a Blighted Ovum is in people terms:
Twenty percent of miscarriages are associated with gestational sacs in which there is no apparent embryo, yolk sac, or umbilical cord. This type of non-viable pregnancy is sometimes referred to as a "blighted ovum"—a term that we detest but that is still widely used in obstetrical circles.

So with Riley my pregnancy was pretty easy. At two days over due I was so done. Everynight I would eat a HUGE bowl of ice cream while watching the 9 0'clock new and the Simpson at 10. Then off to bed. Well, we stayed up late watching a movie one night and decided to go to bed. It was about midnight so I rolled my big belly over to kiss Brandon good night and on my rolling back I said "dang it, I think I tinkled my self hunny" When I stood up I realized I hadn't cuz now the entire floor was soaked. Yeah my water broke!!! Brandon says "seriously? Right NOW?" So being the smart butt I am said "no, how about tomorrow? YES! Of course RIGHT NOW!" So... Off to the hospital we went. Riley was born January 28, 2004 at about 8:55 a.m. I only
He was a pretty easy baby. I was only able to breast feed him for the first month because I wasn't producing enough milk. But, I was ok with it because my goal was at least a month. I never knew when he was teething until a tooth was suddenly there. He never seemed to fuss much. At about 7 months he started rolling to get to where he wanted to go. This contiued until 10 months. I didn't think he would ever crawl. But finally he did. For his first birthday we bought him one of those plastic trikes. He rode that "flinstone style" for three months before he started walking. He was a good 15 months old before he could walk. Ever since then he has been on a bike pretty much anytime he gets out side. He also started riding a two wheel bike at three years old. We took the training wheels of one day and he just naturally took off.
Riley is very loving and helpful with his brother and sister. He has always been and still is really excited with each pregnancy. He has never been to terribally jelous of them. Many of the things he does for them really suprises me. Like knowing when a toy is to small or if something is on the floor that they would choke on. He automatically picks the stuff like that up without being asked. Riley also has a super big personality. His preschool teacher tells me that he is kind of the class clown. Yet he doesn't know it and its not really disruptive. He also has really stepped up to his responsibilities. We got the kids bunnies for easter and Riley's job is to clean up their poo, make sure feeders are full, and give them a treat everday. He does it ever day without grumbling to much. He also has to pick up the living room everynight with Ramsey. If they both participate enough in their chores they will both receive a quarter. Usually Riley always get the quarter. Ramsey on the other hand sometimes just get a nickle. He is very good with Ramsey and only picks on him a little. He is now starting really to like having Ramsey around to play with. He beggs me all the time to "wake up Rams" so that they can play together. Riley also loves four wheeling. He has gotten pretty good on it. Most of his weekends are spent riding his little 50cc wheeler around our property. He also loves going to the lake and driving the boat. He loves to jump off of the back of the boat and never seems to mind the cold water. This year we hope to teach him to wake board but we will see. Skiing is going to probably have to happen first.
Riley I believe will always be my big hearted little boy. I can't wait to see what an awesome adult he will turn out to be. Yet I never want him to grow up.... I love you Buddy!

Yesterday after playing in the bucket of water that Brandon used to wash his truck (YUCK!) the kids decided to dry off on the tramp. So Ramsey stripped down to his diaper and Riley went and changed in to PJ's. Not sure why but thats what they did. Anyways, Brandon received this funny text message and it had some goofy song in the back ground. I looked up from his phone to see the kids dancing like goobers. Usually the boys have pretty good rythm but obviously the song made them let it all go!!! This little clip is hillarious! Or is it? I am kinda partial so I love it! Enjoy!

January 28th, 2009
So for Riley's birthday we just had a simple birthday party. We all had hot dogs and just let the kids play. Riley's big gift from mom and dad was tickets to the Monster Jam Monster Truck Show in Salt Lake on February 14th. (happy valentines to US!!) He was really excited but didn't understand why he had to wait two weeks before he could see them. In the end it was all worth it!!

My little sweet pea smiling in her new birthday outfit.
It was pretty funny to see her carefully licking the frosting
off her hand. Like she wasn't already messy!
Here she is trying to put tink back on the cake.
AND.... The aftermath of her mass destruction!!!

Santa brought Roxee the fun activity center behind her. Grandma Kathy gave her the stroller and some cute outfits and most of the rest is from us (water baby, chevron cars, movies...). Gifts from GR&GR Olds, and GR &GR Sweeten aren't pictured. G&G Olds got her PJ's, Pillow with matching blanket, and a cute singing pupppy. G&G Sweeten got her a ball/hammer activity thing, and a baby doll.
Santa brought Riley a Nintendo DS lite, and an ATV game to go with it, plus some new tires for his Jeep Hurricane. Mommy and Daddy couldn't find the tires anywhere for the last several months so Santa made them "Special" just for Riley. Grandma Kathy got him new, sheets, blanket, and a comforter for his bed, and some clothes, and a hot wheels race track. G&G Olds got him a Mario game for his DS, PJ's, and a dog pillow with matching blanket. G&G Sweeten got him a digital camera and some tatoos. Mommy and Daddy did the monster truck DS game, Chevron Cars, movies, diecast motor cycle...
Santa brought Ramsey the Tickle me Elmo, and the Ride on Little Tykes Semi.
This was the classic look of Roxee all morning opening presents. She decided eating them was more fun that anything!
We also didn't do a real "Christmas Breakfast". We just let the kids eat what ever! Horrible I know! Roxee picked rice crispy treats!
Riley ate a little candy but then still went for his cereal.
Ramsey apears to be eating cereal also, but if you will notice the chocolate all over his face. We counted at least 8 piece of fudge missing. My little chocolate monkey!
Our tree on Christmas eve. Presents from Mommy and Daddy, Grandma Kathy, and Aunt Shelly's family. We spoiled them but not that much!!

Kids riding around in their wagon! Daddy ended up pulling them for an hour because they all refused to get out!
Awwww! Riley sure loves to hold and take care of his little sister. Sometime he worries me when he carrys her around the house but she really doesn't seem to mind it.
We had so many pomegranites this year we didn't know what to do with them all. So I thought it would be a fun experience for Riley to have a stand and sell them. I must not have advertised it very well because the only "customers" he had was grandma, grandpa, and our neighbor Niles (because I called and told them to come buy some). hehehe. It was so cute because at first Riley picked Niles out four pomegrantes and tried to give hime 50 cents also. Then we explained to Riley that Niles was the one that was supposed to pay him. All in all riley made twelve dollars that day.
Brandon sharing his jacket with Roxee(10mo). Daddy was out watching the boys play in the yard and Roxee decided to wake up from her nap. So he didn't have time to put on her jacket (boys can't be unsupervised that long!) so he made due with just sharing his. I came home from the store to find my FAVORITE picture just waiting to be taken!

We did not do to much for halloween but I figure I better make a post about it since it is kind of a holiday. Riley had to be a ninja turtle, Ramsey was a dragon, and little Roxee was Tigger with a bow on her head(had to be a girl costume!). Grandma Kathy (my mom) came down to spend the weekend with us so she came with me to the trunk or treat at Lins. That was really lame! An hour wait for like 5 pieces of candy! After which we headed home and just went trick-or-treating around the neighborhood. Grandma stayed home and handed out candy so that Brandon and I could take the kids out. After we got back we got the kiddos to bed and Grandma insisted that Brandon and I go out to an adult halloween party. Which was really fun. Although we should have dressed up. Oh Well! At least we got out and had some fun.
After Halloween I rode with my mom back to Salt Lake so that I could take care of her after her heart surgery. We left Monday morning and come Tuesday morning while she was at the hospital my two babies woke up sick. They got what I had (strep and a cough). So after mom gets home Tuesday evening the work starts. Luckily it was a pretty simple surgery and she didn't need to much care. Between me and my kids being sick I already had my hands full. Not the greatest idea that mom and I have had. Me taking care of her with my three kids? We are all just crazy. The week went by and all was fine (I think?). Brandon came up on Thursday night and it had snowed a ton! So Riley had been patiently waiting all week for his dad so that they could build a snow man together. So early Friday morning that is what they did. Cute!
