Busy, busy, busy

For the coming weeks my time on here may be sporadic. it's hitting busy season at my work and there are those who know me know I don't post or do as much during that time, just to tired when I get home and since I'm 15 weeks preggos and have a three year old that all adds onto it. I will do my best to do whatever updates I can. My cross stitch as one may imagine is also going slow been working on the S for two weeks ok have only worked on the weekends really and its one has the most stitching off all of the letters I did.

Lets see what can I update oh I went to my doctor on Tuesday everything looks good. I lost 2 pounds since the last one which is fine, I'm a little over weight anyways and have lost weight in everything but my stomach area of course, gaining there losing elsewhere. If only the areas I lost weight would stay that way after the baby is born! My next appointment is October 24 then on November 7 I go in for an ultrasound.  My doctor says that on the 24th appointment my doc says we can do a quick ultrasound to see waht sex the baby is. I hope it works out cause I want to know! I know some people like to wait me I'm happy knowing early. I want to start buying things now lol.

The fair

The weather was perfect for the fair yesterday! Not to hot and a nice breeze. Connor was really excited to go when we told him there was different types of animals there, he turned everything off in the house and ran down the hall yelling I love animals! So yes we spent some time looking at all of the animals I brought my camera but only took a few pictures.It seemed everyone else decided to come to the fasir as well. There were a LOT of people. At times to many for me.

I also understand more why some people with strollers push themselves through you have to! People see a strooler and cut you of or don't give room for you to get through.b One place I wanted to go was see the bunnies. I love bunnies, but never had one as a pet my dad is really allergic to those little adorable animals *sighs*.

I had to take this next picture because oit was just to funny and made me think of Mother Goose.

I would rather have gotten a picture of them when they were walking about but to many people around. I did go and look at some of the cross stitch submitted and must say wow not sure I'd ever be that good some looked like photographs they were really good!

On our way out of the fair we had to cut through a building that was full of vendors because the pigs were being judged,. My parents were upfront, grandpa had Connor, hubby and I were trying to keep up when one boot stopped us both. It was full of sketches something we have hanging up all over the house.

The Jedi Mickey started it all and yes hubby did leave with a sketch, a Star Wars sketch. The one posted above.

Kids and cross stitch

My niece who was fighting some nasty viruses on top of other things is now home from the hospital. She hadn't been drinking anything so she was there on an IV. That's really all I know saw a post from my sis-in-law on her facebook they live in Hawaii so there four hours behind us and so they cam home at 2 am our time and its only 4 am there time atm.

Connor has made some head way in potty training finally. we now have a chart and he earns a sticker each time he uses the potty and he finally went number 2, twice in the potty. So yay progress!

This post isn't going to be to long work hasn't been fun I'm working non stop and at times ten hours... I've been a bit exhausted because of it! And haven't made much headway on my cross stitch blanket. been working on the Q since Sunday. Still I'll do a photo update and also this first picture is of my mini jedi. And yes that is a custom lightsaber... his daddy made it. Hubby is really good at making them!

Were also getting out of the house today off to the state fair to see cows, sheep, goats, pigs, bunnies and I want to take a look at the crafts area and see other people's cross stitch.

My niece

So worried about my niece whom I mentioned in an earlier post. the doctors have been trying to figure out what exactly is wrong. First they went and saw a specialist who said she was under developed in the lower part of her body which caused her intestine to come out a little after she went to the bathroom. And said that they were going to wait a month and see if things start to catch up. well last night we get a message she was being admitted to the hospital because to top it all off she has had the stomach flu and was very dehydrated. they decided to keep her to see if they could figure out what else was going on, because they felt it was more then what the specialist said.

well today we got a call from my sister -in-law and the part of the intestine that came out isn't working. they say its a small part but causing problems, giving her a lot of gas and what not and may need to be surgically removed. poor little one :/ wish I could do something to help, but its my in-laws and a plane ticket to Hawaii isn't cheap. We are thinking of sending her a get well package of some sort, because not much else we can do from here! just send our love I guess and hope it all turns out fine in the end.

Birthdays, babies and other things

Wow so much has happened the last week were to begin. First off I'm writing this early in the morning woke up couldn't fall back asleep thought I'd post then try to go back and sleep.

Ok first off Connor's birthday was last Monday. I can't believe my little boy is three years old! The party went well it was all pirates which was what he wanted. he picked out the plates and cups and asked for pirate balloons and pirate cupcake cake.

With the help of my sister in law who made the cup cake holders and the tooth pick swords and pirate flags I think it came out well. we also had some that had what looked to be treasure chests. :)

OK on to Wednesday. Mandie my cousin who was very pregnant was induced into labor. After several hours the baby had not turned and though they tried to turn i... I've heard that's incredibly painful, were unable to. they ended up doing a c-section. And we now have a new member in our family! A nine pound healthy boy. I have not been able to see him yet. everyone went up Wednesday evening, but since I was not yet over my cold I stayed away. Cold and new born does not mix. So instead I was sent pictures :).

Now on to my family in Hawaii there are two there who have been heavy on my mind. First my sister in law, the same one who sent stuff up for Connor's pirate cupcake cake.

That's her holding my niece Erin.. the other one I've been worried about. OK so back to my sister in law she has had a goiter in her neck since she was 10 it has recently gotten bigger and on Tuesday I biopsy was performed to see if it is cancerous or not. We are now just waiting for the results and hoping everything tuns out fine!

Now on to my niece every time I think about this it just... oh man it shard to explain my emotions on this on.. mortified maybe? Anyways guess I should explain. Last week her mom was changing her diaper and found blood a lot of blood and like a bubble coming out of her butt. they took her to the hospital the bubble was her intestines some how during a bowel movement she had pushed out her intestines. The doctors pushed it back in but I believe the next day it happened again they went back to the hospital and now she may have to have surgery. Won;t know yet they are taking er to see a specialist and the appointment is not until the 8th. So won't know anything until then.but yes the whole thing has freaked me out.. I just can't imagine something like that poor little one, shes not even 2 yet :/.

Oh! And Connor had his three year check up and Wednesday.. a lot happened that day. All came out well he is now 35 pounds and 39.2 inches tall! Boy is he getting big!
