So OCTOBER is a crazy month for birthdays in our family on both sides. There are 14 of us with birthdays if I am counting right, and 3 of those are in my little family. Larry turned 29 on the 16th, I am 25 today, and Connor will be 3 on the 24th! Like I said, CRAZY!
This year for our birthdays has been a little different, we usually do something together, but Larry started a new job and has been working a lot and I just got back from Utah, so we haven't seen each other since Wednesday morning. I didn't get to see him on his birthday :( and he won't get to see me on mine. Hopefully he will be home tomorrow afternoon and we can all do something fun together!

My mom, dad, Nicole, Logan and I went to Utah to surprise Tiffany for her graduation. We left Wednesday and drove all night so we could make it there Thursday morning and spend all day Thurs. and Fri. with her then drive home Sat. morning. It was a quick trip, but so much fun! I had no kids which was nice but sad too. It was the first time I have ever been away from my children besides being in the hospital to have a baby. So it was kind of hard, but I had a blast! Tiffany graduated in massage therapy and she gave us all a massage, It was heaven! Thanks Tiff, we are so proud of you!

A huge THANK YOU to Kristi, Kathy, and Churstan for watching my kids so I could go! You guys are the best!

Her are some pictures of how much fun we had!

The four of us above, and the sexy people who created us below.

Some of the fun I had with the computer!

Sexy Huh!

How I really look, and if anyone says not much different, I will hurt you!

Rough Day

My sweet Connor started school on Monday and it was such a bitter-sweet day for me. Connor is such a handful, and I kept saying that I couldn't wait for him to start school so it would give me a break. Well, when they told me he could start school as soon as Monday October 6th, I just started crying. I feel like I don't know him very well, and the only time that I didn't know that he had any problems, he was a baby and I always felt that special bond with him, but now as a toddler he doesn't communicate very well with us and it has been so sad and frustrating. I have this wish that he will do amazingly well in school and start talking like crazy and then he can come home and be with me and not have to go to school until Kindergarten. He only goes to school for 2 hours, and the little break is nice, but I would give anything to have him be able to talk to me and tell me all the things he has been trying to tell me for the last year and a half and just be at home with me. He is so sweet and lovable. The batteries in my camera died right as I was getting ready to take him to school, but luckily my mom's cousin came to the rescue and she let me use her camera. She will be e-mailing me the pictures soon and then I will post them. He looks so big and so stinkin' cute with his spiderman backpack(ba-pa) and he gets to ride the bus. Yes it is the short bus. Ask me if I feel like a complete jerk for making fun of people who ride the short bus to school. I would tease with my friends and say, "Yeah, well you ride the short bus to school!" thinking that it was funny. Well not so much now! It was a rough day:(
