|Keeping the kiddos entertained while I make dinner!|
|Happy Fourth Of July!|
Libby enjoying a sparkler.
Devin helping Braxton with a sparkler.
|Devin was doing a side job fixing some sprinklers. He took us along for company and to get us out of the house. The kiddos love "working" with Daddy!|
|Libby still loves her Cinderella dress we got her for her birthday. She wanted to play soccer once she was in it. Silly girl. :)|
|Making leftovers fun! Kinda scary, I know. This was for Devin, he just rolled his eyes at me. :)|
|Libby made a friend at the library thing we go to. They like to sit together and share their toys. Sadly, story time is over for the summer now so she probably wont be seeing much of her anymore.|
|Hey look! I actually had time to scrapbook one. :)|
It says, "Libby and Braxton love to play on the tire swing that Elizabeth, Jaxsen, and I built at Granny and Gramps' house. It is always a good distraction on laundry days!
Libby "called" Daddy on her play phone. It was really cute before this because she was having a "real" conversation with him. When I got the camera out she got shy and wasn't as vocal.
|Left side normal Maybeline mascara (2 coats), right side my awesome Younique 3D Fiber Lash Mascara (2 coats). I LOVE this mascara! Don't mind my dark circles; I didn't have any other makeup on that night!|
|Just because.. I'm not sure if they look more like a pineapple or a mermaid's tail.|
|I put something away in the other room and when I came back Braxton was sitting on top of Libby! She didn't even notice when he got excited and starting bouncing around.|
We made a trip down to Utah because Matthew and Melanie's deck was falling off the house and they needed help to replace it.
|Braxton was sad so Claire picked him to comfort him. It was really sweet because he just laid his head down and cuddled her. I took the photo because it cracked me up how big he is compared to her! He's only 15 mo old. :)|
|Braxton was so tired after the farm that he fell asleep in the car when we were on the way to Amber's new house for lunch. He didn't even wake up when I took him out of his car seat so I just put him straight on Amber's bed! Tired baby!|
|The kids love to sit in the side-by-sides when we visit Daddy at work. It is really hard to pry Braxton away!|
Oakley has a bunch of stuff going on the week before the 24th of July to celebrate Pioneer Day.
This video is pretty long; almost 10 minutes.. It is cute though because Braxton tries to walk several times in it. He also wouldn't leave the cat food alone and kept trying to eat it so I had to keep telling him to put it down! Libby dances around and plays with the cats.
|A cute hairstyle to tame the mane!|
While Braxton was napping Libby and I were playing "Row Row Row Your Boat" out on the front step. Don't mind the noise of the wind...
|This is my awesome Bountiful Baskets order form last week. I got the main basket and then the asian basket and the juicing basket. All of this for just $40!|
|Libby loves to pretend towels are dresses. :)|
Braxton is finally walking! Yay! He will pretty much always stand up and see how far he can get before deciding to crawl now. Before bed he walked about 15 feet all by himself! He paused and squatted to catch is balance twice, but kept on walking after! Yay! Next, potty training!
As a side note, so people know what is going on with me.. When we moved up here my neck was really hurting and I thought it was just because of the exercises I was doing. I had a hard lump on the left side and then sore underneath. It never went away. My mom came up and visited right before the 4th and I asked her what she thought because the pain wasn't going away and it should have if it was just from working out. She said my lymph nodes were huge.
Quinn did an energy reading for me and we decided on a regime for me to follow using the oils and having more plants in my house, and drinking green smoothies and eliminating certain foods from my diet. I was starting to feel better but the swelling wasn't really going down so I went to see a dr. for a medical opinion.
He said; based on what I told him, it looked like a bacterial infection. He wanted me to take an antibacterial for 2 weeks and if the swelling didn't go away he wanted to do blood work and possibly a biopsy if needed. I told him I don't love the idea of taking medicine and asked about the oils. He said he'd give me a week and then he'd like me to take the antibiotic if there weren't any changes.
I kept up with the oil regimen and things were feeling better for the first few days. Then my lymph nodes started to feel like they had before I started using the oils. Then I got a new lump on my right side of my neck.. I decided it was probably time to try the antibiotics. (It was after two weeks...)
I've been on them for 3 days now.. I still don't have much of a change.. I'm hoping for the best, but prayers would be appreciated. :) I'm trying to ignore the possibilites of what it could be and just stay positive and trust the oils, medication, and God will get rid of it for me. :)
I hope everyone has had a great July!
