Holiday FUN!!!

Austin Helping his dad put the star on the Tree!
He was so excited to help.

Well he was not scared of Santa this year at first he just looked at him
like who are you? Then he smiled he was such a nice Santa.

Austin and Josh together. Austin turned his head at the last moment.

I asked Austin what he was going to ask Santa for on Christmas and he said I'm going to ask for a hug! And Sure enough he ran up to him and gave him a hug he was so excited he said somthing in jibberish and walked off it was too cute. Last year he cried and cried so it was nice for a change.

He, he i love this picture! and they love each other Josh just gets a kick out of austin. They are starting to play together more and more.

Look at their eyes you can tell they are related. ha ha
Well just to update you on my health i was diagnosed with Pseudotumor Cerebri. Google it if you don't know what it is. Its too much to type. So i have been going to the dr every Thursday and getting tests done to see if it gets worse or better. If it gets worse I have to have surgery and they are trying to let me wait until after the holidays. If it gets better i just stay on meds and i have to lose weight. FUN for me anybody have and easy diet and food prep thats easy to follow let me know. On a level from 1-5 one being the best and 5 the worst. The drs rate me at a 4. So yes I'm pretty bad cause i also have weekly appts. The interns love me at the u of u. i have like 10 visits from just interns. The appts are 4 hours long ugh!!! I will try to update ate least every other week.
Austin is doing great in school he can now say his abc's with no mistakes. He is doing much better at potty training but he is still in pull-ups. He has a singing program on Friday and its just an hour long but its his first program he has ever been in so im very excited to go at watch him i will post pics.
Well that all for now i will post an update tommrow if i can.

5 Month pic

Ok so I did get the 5 month old pic taken my mom was here and i borrowed her camera. Josh is now rolling over both front and back. He hates rice cereal but loves the oatmeal. He smiles all the time he is such a joy and make me smile everyday. Austin is as busy as ever. His favorite word right now is pickles. He will drop something and then he will go "awwwww pickles" Its too funny! we have slowed down on potty training. He is now fighting us to go potty he dose not want to go AT ALL. So when we change his butt is the only time we have him sit on the potty. We have joined a family fundamentals group and it teaches you diffrent techniques to raise a child WE are really enjoying it and Austin is too. We have learned a lot of new ways to communicate with Austin. WE are so excited for HALLOWEEN this year! Austin has chose his own costume! He is going to be a Cowboy. Out of all the costumes i showed him he chose a cowboy ha ha. Joshua is going to be a Lion. We are going to go to the Expo Trick or Treat street cause it is inside and warm. It was a lot of fun last year so we thought we would go again. I will take my moms camera so i can have some good photos.
I got my Grandpa he he!I'm a silly boy!Ok mom enough pictures!Austin making "tracks" in the sand

I love this picture!

Storys of Austin and pictures


So I'm Still POTTY TRAINING ugh! I swear my son will be in diapers till he is a teenager lol! I had him in big boy underwear and i got tired of changing poopie ones yuck!!! So back into pull-ups at least its easier to clean up. He will however go pee in the potty so I'm half there I just wish it was the opposite way It would be so nice just to change a pee. Boy dose Austin have an imagination recently he has decided he is a cowboy riding a bull in the rodeo. (We went and watched in coalville fair) So he gets his cowboy hat and gallops around the room and then falls to the floor saying "ouch i fell down" its so funny to watch. Anther funny thing he is doing is he pretends to have a handful of candy and throws it to people like he is in a parade. It took me a while to figure out what he was doing. Here is one more funny story. The missionary's were passing us and gave us a picture of Jesus. Well i ask

Mom: Who is this?
Austin: Jesus
Mom: Jesus is our brother did you know that?
Austin: No, Josh is my brother.!

I could have died laughing. It was so cute and the way he said it was just like mom you don't know what your talking about. Alright i got to get back to my family laterz

Anyways, Everything came back normal and they still don't know why i was having the pains in my stomach. Lucky me. So the pain has gone away lets hope it stays that way! Well the video wont download sorry

Monday, August 13, 2007


Just take the picture already!

OK, now I'm happy!

I still have not gotten Austins b-day pic's cause they are on a diffrent camera. I don't use my digital camera much because its broken and its hard to use now so i only take pics when i really really need to lol. The kids are doing great! I'm in the process of potty training Austin he is doing really well at home but when we are out and about he forgets to tell me and has accidents so when we are on the go we still are in pull-ups. Joshua is growing and is starting to play! It's a lot of fun.

One Month Old

Ok time needs to stop flying by!! Joshua turned one month old on the 8th of June, WOW! We took him to the dr cause he is still really stuffed up. He has been this way since he was born and he has a hard time breathing at night which scares me. So he is fine just as long as i suction his nose out before feeding and before he goes to sleep. He weighs 9 pounds and 13 ounces now Man he is a chunk! Austin loves him so much he wants to hold him all the time and he makes sure everyone knows where Josh is at when we walk into a room. Austin still has his jelouse moments but is doing a whole lot better. Yesterday the 11 Lindsey, Isaac, Julia, Ian, Austin, Joshua and I, Went to the dinosaur museum at Thanksgiving Point and the kids had a blast so did I. I have never been there before and it was really neat to see all the fossils of animals that lived before us. Well talk to you later

Josh's Blessing

Well, The blessing was really nice. We had a lot of family and friends come. Jason gave the blessing and he did a very good job i was proud of him. After the blessing Grandpa Barrett gave his testimony which i was so happy to hear! It just made my day even better. So after church we went to the Outpost to eat. Well that was interesting! I had never been there before and the girls that were our waitress's had these short short's on that barley covered them which shocked me a little but the food was ok. I was a little upset about the salad, they did not tell me they chose the dressing for you. (I only talked to them on the phone) I like RANCH people! Anyways it was an ok lunch. I just enjoyed the family the most. I'm glad its over too. I'm not very good at planning parties or get togthers so i was stressing out about it. Thanks to all who came and thanks for supporting Joshua.

Monday, May 21, 2007


Life never stops throwing curve balls! Ok so on Thursday i went to Coalville to visit my family. I drove my explorer everywhere. It ran just fine. On the way home a semi pulled in front of me and i had to slam on my breaks (i was going the speed limit, but he was going really slow) then my abs light came on. So i called Jason and he said turn the car off and it should go off if now we will take it in to get it checked out. Well instead of getting home first and then turning it off i decide to pull into shopko right off the freeway on Redwood rd. I turn the car off and try to turn it back on and there is no power at all. So I have three kids in my car Jocelyn, Austin and Joshua (who is crying cause he is hungry). luckly we were off the road and parked in a safe area. So Jason to the rescue, he come and i leave him with the explorer and i take the kids home in the Ranger. So about an hour later jason comes home and the wire to the batterie was eaten through by the acid. So that was fixed. Two days later Jason was taking the car to get fixed and he got to about maceys and POOF fluid goes everywhere. So he pulls into Big O and they fix the car. LETS HOPE!

Austin is now adjusting well to Joshua well. He wants to help but he is too rough with him. I let Josh give Austin a "kiss" on the cheeks and austin thought that was neat. It was more of josh slobbering on austin is was cute. Josh slept for 5 hours last night is was wonderful! It scarred me cause i was not expecting him to sleep that long. Josh has his 2 week check-up tommrow. I cant believe we have had him for 2 weeks already i was thinking last night it already feels like we have had him forever in our family. So we are finally back to normal life again and it feels good. TTFN Ev

Wednesday, May 16, 2007

So Josh is now a week old, on Tuesday. He had Jandauce really bad and we had to have him in the billi lights. My room glowed at night very annoying. Josh did not sleep well at all inside this thing he hated the mask i had to put on him. So i was up all night and day cause i had to take care of austin as well. So thank goodness for the sun cause I took josh outside and got him down to a diaper and let the sun on his skin and it worked he is now off the lights HORRAY! Last night he slept so good only woke up twice.

Austin is having a hard time adjusting to being a brother. He is really acting out but we are working on that. By trying to give him sometime with just mom or dad. He is too helpful at times and he really wants to carry josh around so i have to keep a close watch on him. He also likes to climb in the bouncer and rock its so funny. I will take a pic and post later.

Well got to go Ev.

Joshua Ralph

Wow! He is finally here! It started at 1:30am in the morning on the 8th. I went to the hospital and i was a small 4 dialated. So we were there for 4 hours and I only had dialated to a full 4+ so they sent me home at 7:30 am. They gave me a pain pill and a sleeping pill and said get some rest. Well i come home and I'm in a ton of pain! I cry through the contractions for about 11 hours and thats when Jason steps in and calls the Dr. I'm bringing her in the dr says ok. We get there and I'm dialated to an 8cm. So I was given my epidural and it did not work. But the guy who gave me the epidural asked if i could push josh out without it. I beged him to redo it so he did not 10 sec after he redone it i was numb FINALLY!! So 15 min later my OB came in to break my water. So Im thinking i have a couple of hours to finnish dialating and i can rest. NOPE. Moving around and stuff finnished me dialating. SO i had to push. 3 pushes and Joshua is here! YAY! I was holding my baby before they got me admitted to the hospital it went so fast he he.
In these pic he is still kinda swollen I have some new pic but have not loaded them onto the computer.

Yet another Dr Appt! AND LAST ONE!!!

Ok so Tuesday night i was having really bad contractions they started at 1 am and i could not sleep for the life of me!!! So I was up till 3 am and finally decided to hop into the tub and the contractions stopped. I went to bed and I had to get up at 8:30 to take austin to Grandmas so i could go to the Dr's. Well I slept in till 9:20 and my dr appt was at 10:20. So I'm late of course. So some how I make it to the dr on time i pull in to park and i see my dr DRIVING AWAY!! So i walk in and the nurse tells me it will be an hour wait for my appt GRRRR. So since Jasons grandparents are only 2 blocks away i decided to go visit. It was really nice I love to sit and talk to them. Before i leave they offer me to come back after my appt and have lunch I said sure and so i left and went back to my dr. I get weighed and to my surprise I did not gain any more weight! SO this whole pregnancy i have only gained 20 pounds. With Austin i gained 60 pounds just to let you know. So I am now 3 cm dialated and 75% efaced. The dr then asks me if i want to be induced next week on the 9th. I said sure, so we will have our new little guy here next week. So scarry to think i will have 2 kids here in my home. So after my appt. I go back up to Grandma and Grandpa Deans house and they take me to lunch. I then go home barley able to stay awake driving. NEXT time im up all night and have an appt i will take someone with me cause i really scarred my-self driving. I pick up austin and go home put austin down for a nap and of course me too we slept from 2 to 5pm. It was so nice i better enjoy the naps now cause they are comming to an end very soon! Well thats all.

Saturday, April 28, 2007

Our last date night for awhile!

Ok so i told you I would post about what we did on the 27th. We went to Deseret Star and watched Phantom of the Grand ole Opry. It was so funny! It was really nice to get out and spend some time just the two of us. We don't really get to get out and spend time together just us two very much.
My Brother Brandon watched Austin and I guess kept him busy. What was so cute is when i went to pick austin up, austin picked up his sippy and his blanket and told me he needed a nap. It was midnight when i got him he was ready to go to bed. So I put him to bed and he was asleep as soon as his head hit the pillow. Jason has been sick for 2 days now and is just starting to feel better. So I feel like crap today just fron being preggo. I just hope we all feel beter before our new little guy makes his appearance.
Well thats all folks laters

Wednesday, April 25, 2007

Preggo Update.

Happy Birthday!!

We Love You So Much!

Today is Jason's Birthday! We going to go out on the 27th to celebrate. I can't tell you yet what we are doing cause it is a surprise for him. He is so spoiled! So far for his birthday he has gotten a whole new outfit. He got new shoes, 3 shirts, a pair of pants, and a nice watch. Although most of it was for his new job so it was needed lol. We went fishing the other day and Jason has fun it was really windy but here is a pic.

Last night was Fun we went to my Great, Great Grandmother Virgina's 100th Birthday. I seen people i had not seen since i was 5 years old. Of course they all knew me but i had no clue to who they were lol. We went and ate at Little America it was fun. Then we went out to my Grandpas house and let the kids run wild. Austin was being so good he was not screaming or crying or yelling until this 13 year old had to start playing with him and you know Austin once you get him going your not stopping him. So my son was being very roudy because of this kid. I did get my 5 generation picture though I will post it when i get it printed.

As for me GET THIS BABY OUT OF ME lol! No he still needs about a week and a half to bake. I'm just getting tired of not being able to breath and sleep. Or be comfy for that matter.

Thursday, April 19, 2007


I'm feeling pretty tired today. I went to bed early last night and i did my usual 20 trips to the bathroom and I wake up with Jason a 5 to have breakfast with him and to spend some time with him before he leaves. After he is gone i go back to bed. So Austin usually wakes up about 8:30 a.m. Well this morning he woke up at 7:00a.m. You would not think an hour and a half would make that big of a diffrence but it dose. So now im sitting here trying to get austin to take a nap so i can lay down but he is refusing to do so. He just want to play. Figures.

The maintence men in our apt complex are so not all there in the head! They put celing fans in our apt which are really nice. Well the one in our front room and bed room smell like burning wires when you leave them on so i told the managers and they did a report to get it fixed. So the first guy we will call him Bob. He come in fixes the front room one with no troubles at all. He said he would be back the next day to fix the bed room one. WELL a month later he comes back. He acts like he has never seen a celing fan. He works 3 hours on the fan and breaks the lights so now the room is dark and i cant see anywhere. He says i dont know what im doing so i asked him why could he fix the front room fan but not the bedroom fan? He could not answer me. So he put a new work order in saying they would fix the fan the next day. Well 3 days later and I'm upset. I can't see whats in my room or if im going to trip on something. The other maintence guy comes in we will call him Jim. He fixes it in like a half and hour!!! I was like what happend that Bob could not fix it? He crossed the wires lol. I cant wait to move!! Needless to say my fans are fixed now but it took forever!

Ok i got this from a friend but its so TRUE i had to post it! Its called things women say.

1.) FINE: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

2.) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five Minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

3.) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.

4.) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

5.) Loud Sigh: This is not actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to #3 for the meaning of nothing.)

6.) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

7.) Thanks: A woman is thanking you; do not question or faint. Just say you're welcome.

8.) Whatever: Is a women's way of saying F--U!

9.) Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking, "what's wrong", for the woman's response refer to #3.

my first blog.

Ok so this is a first. I got the idea from my sister-in-law. I liked how she was able to share photos and info of how she was doing with her son and family life. So lets see where to start ok im now 35 weeks prego. So in about 5 weeks or less i will have another son to take care of. My husband Jason just got a job at a warehouse so far he really likes it. I'm really excited about that because he works only 4 days a week and gets fri, sat, and sunday off. So we can go camping and do other things as a family. Thats actually all that is new in my life right now.
