...k&l wedding...

This is my cousins wedding photos that we did last weekend, she's getting married down in Utah this weekend so we took a few at her reception in Raymond. She looked stunning, and I'm sure she'll be even more stunning this weekend with the glow they come out of the temple with... they're always so giddy and excited. I couldn't make it down there cause I'd rather not have this baby in the states :( So I hope i get to see pics from down there soon too... Congrats K&L hope everything is awesome!!! Now u can see how beautiful she is... sorry L but the girl always steals the show... you looked good too (p.s. he's in training for the next summer Olympics)

...hospitals, xrays and dentists...

So we've had an interesting few weeks, first Kodi was on my mom's back deck that doesn't have a railing yet and fell off onto her head onto hard packed dirt and rocks (5ft. high) so that resulted in huge bump and trip to get xrays and an overnight stay in hospital for observation, she's good besides the leftover black eyes, the swelling left her head and went to her eyes... Then the next week Houston had to go get his dental work done and be put under general anesthetic. They put him to sleep at 9am and finished at 11:30 but never woke up besides to say with his eyes closed, I'm thirsty, so into car to head home, into his bed and didn't wake up until 4:30 p.m. Lots of sleep... That was a week ago and now he's just starting to be able to eat normal. His mouth was really sore. Poor kid. I didn't feel quite as bad when the dentist told me, his had thirteen when he was about 2, he said probably genetic... guess that's my fault. Then this Saturday was Kylie's wedding reception... I got home to put kids to bed and about five minutes later Kodi swallowed a metal washer.... another trip to ER and more xrays and there was the little washer clearly in her tummy. So now my job is to check her diaper... disgusting until it hopefully comes out or else more xrays and who knows... Glad all this happened in Raymond hosp. or I'd be having social services coming over in Calgary.... Kids are fun. Kodi's had more radiation in two weeks then I think I've had in 24 years. But I guess thats kids.... I hope we're done with hospitals for awhile now.... Sorry pics are backwards in order...

Here's poor Houston still hasn't woke up from being put under at dentist. Almost every tooth got worked on. Poor kid... dental genes aren't so good.
Day 7 and i quit with the everyday pics, now it's just getting lighter the bruising. She looks lots better, theres a little bit of gooseegg still it's been 16 days now.

...summers over now we wait...

Well I have five more weeks to wait... maybe more hopefully less... ;) Kodi keeps telling brett, "mommy's having a baby sister, daddy." houston knows its coming after my birthday on the 12th. so after that I'm sure his questions won't stop. We have a busy month before baby comes, houston has his dental surgery booked tuesday in leth, the morning after brett's labor day game, so i'll be driving home quick after game, dentist tuesday, i have pics i need to take in raymond for a few people, get my maternity ones done, kylies wedding saturday, sometime this week paint kodi's bed, change table, a couple dressers, then back up to calgary sunday to wait for this baby that i'm not ready for, no diapers or any of the normal things u need, and then wait, go to my appts, waitsome more, hopefully get all the things i need for when baby's born and after,
and hope brett's not gone on his four day road trip that's scheduled the day i'm due... oh and hope we will have a babysitter while i'm having this baby, and brett has a few games in between now and then too we'll be going to. I think I'm always feeling like the last month before is crazy like you'll never get all the things done before the baby comes, i'm sure everyone's like that too. Now summer is pretty much over, we went to Calaway Park today, last weekend kodi had to stay overnight in hospital cause she fell off my mom's 5 foot deck on her head, so she had to have some xrays and be observed for twenty four hours now she went from looking like in houston's words, "quazzemoto" to a boxer who's lost their fight, she has two black eyes and everyone stares at her thinking we must beat our kids. I'll post pics of that soon. i have tons of pics from summer but i'll just put up a few and next time kodis face pics, we take a new one everyday to show her progress... she tells me "my owies getting better mommy, no picture."
