Forgot to mention:
Last summer the only trip we took was up to AR to see Kendell. That was a horrible trip. Guess I should say a horrible drive and hotel. Elliott was on call and with 3 kids we had to stop pretty often. Elliott had to find internet in one little town on the way up there so it took us like an hour before we were on the road again. Then the hotel was nasty. There were 2 inch long ants, spiders, white trash people and a bloody fight. Needless to say we won’t stay at a Red Roof again. And diarea kids pooping all over the bathroom. Gross! It was great to see the Becks and the new addition. It was a great blessing. Since it has been so hot we have been spending a lot of days at water parks and pools. We got this awesome gazebo for our deck to cool us down and we have a window a/c unit in our tv room to help.
Elliott applied for Border Patrol. We went down to
Sept 13 for
him to take the test. We stayed in the condo and the kids and I had fun, while Elliott studied.
We went swimming and tried to watch a movie at the theater there, we played games and had ice cream. While he was taking the test we went to hang out with Jenny and her family. It was fun and nice to see them. Elliott’s grandmother found out she had stage 4 stomach cancer and
only had weeks to live. Her memory was like Big Mom’s for about a year. As soon as they found this out, his family made funeral plans. Houston

Has it really been since November that I posted something?! Well the kids are growing up, and too fast. I feel sad that they are growing so fast because I cant baby them anymore. I love my babies. But Elliott said to be grateful that they are growing. Which is true. Cole is still in preschool and its going great. He is able to write all his alphabets, and is starting to understand the sounds. He loves to fight and wrestle with any older kid he can find. He had a hole in his tooth and we talked to a friend of ours who is a Pediatric Dentist and said he needs that taken care of. So we had to go to Children's and they had to put him under. Turns out he had 8 cavities and an absest on the tooth with the hole, so it had to be pulled. He did a great job at the hospital and recovered so fast. It always amazes me how quick little ones recover.
Miss Princess Isabel is just as pretty as they can get! She is just so girly! Loves her My Little Ponies her cousin, I mean Santa, gave her. She is totally potty trained! She is attached to my hip and wants me to hold her all the time.
Brooke is 10 months now and is crawling everywhere! She is walking around furniture. She is still the best baby. Goes right to sleep when I put her in bed. Doesn't cry and scream when she is hungry or poopy. She is so pleasant!
As for Elliott and I, we are starting to train for our Survival Run at the end of April.
