Our family at Eddie and Tara's wedding
Wednesday, June 24, 2009
A few days later, we checked the mail and sure enough there was a package for Camden and Case. I couldnt believe how excited the kids were to have new blankets. Camden got to pick which one he wanted, and he chose the one with bears, camoflauge and grey satin binding. He just kept saying he was so excited and loved his new blankie. Later he said the other one was old and had germs on it because he put his mouth on it.
They are carting these new blankets everywhere despite that it is 108 out. At target the other day, Camden said mom, " I love you, but I love Grandma better." Guess I had better learn how to make a back up blankie. He said that he was going to give her a huge hug and kiss...
I am glad that small things make him happy, although it was a big deal for him. Thanks Grandma Dill.. you saved the day!
one more side note about this blanket.. camden about a month ago went in the backyard and broke our citrus tree.. in half ( it was small but still) so I got his blankie and cut a hole in it. Blades thought i was crazy. he was in the office listening to it all go down. Camden was really upset, and I sewed up the hole a few minutes later. Am i mean?

We got back from camping ( pictures to come soon) and I am so not camping again while I am pregnant. The ground, although cushy with sleepingbags and foam, was not cushy enough. Every part of my body hurt the next day. Case tossed and turned ALL night long and I thought the morning would never come.
I should be typing about what a great time we did.. so heres the rest of our trip..
Camden got to fish, Case ran around and ate roasted marshmallows, and we ate and had a great time. I even whooped Blades at rummy.
We wimped out the second night,( not only was it freezing, but it was raining too) and got a hotel room up the road. We left camp the way it was, and came back this morning to pack it up. The warm shower was heavenly, and the kids were oh so happy to get into the bathtub.
Anyway we are unpacked, and the laundry pile is overflowing, but wanted to write about the baby. I am just starting to feel her kick around, and it is a funny feeling. The whole pregnancy thing begins to feel more real once I feel kicking. We can't wait for her to be here, and know it will be here faster than we think. ( like the background.. it's pink)
My brother Michael and his wife just had their 3rd baby today. Austin.. It was great to hear that news. I wish we lived closer ( they are in Vegas) to kiss and smell the new baby.
I had a great afternoon with the kids. We are really trying to be more positive with them, and do more things with them. We played playdough, waterballoons, ball and went to the park today. I only let Camden watch 20 minutes of TV ( we are trying to cut back) and we played alot more. Potty training is in the cards for Case, and that seems like a great summer activity for me to attempt :)
The kids are in bed, and Blades and I are going to watch some TV ( I did'nt say anything about us cutting back!!)

We find out tomorrow at 830 am what we are having... less than 12 hours. ( did you think I was going to tell you now???sorry) I am really getting excited. I just wrote in my journal about it, and realized its been almost 6 months since i wrote in it. I guess blogging has taken over my journal writing, but there is something about getting a pen, and writing in a journal that is fun.
I don't have to come up with a title, and whatever is written cannot be backspaced for typo's.
This is the most I have felt different than my other pregnancies.. although I have felt great.. a bit more nasea, although I didnt throw up.. and super tired..( is it because I have two boys to chase)?? Camden wants a baby boy and Case just tries to see where the baby is under my shirt...
Thankfully, Camden and Case both take naps and I take a nap too usually! They are great kids. We are looking forward to adding another whitebaby to our whitehouse!
We had family pictures done tonight. I can't wait to see them. Im hoping a few turned out. We were around ducks and water, and it was like a magnet for the kids. They about went in a few times. I thought it was going to be alot hotter out, but it wasnt too bad.. I thought we had better get them done before its way hotter. It's only going to get worse around here as far as temperature! It was difficult trying to keep them focused, but that's kids for ya I suppose. We were planning on bringing the kids to the ultrasound, but after a crazy night of family pics, Debra offered to watch them. THANKS DEBRA.. you are a lifesaver!! Blades and I will be able to enjoy the big news!
