My Latest Favorite Song.....

What more is there to say! He's got an AMAZING voice (Yeah've been telling everyone that FOREVER! lol, and you are RIGHT) and there's just something about the song. It brings tears to my eyes. Maybe the movie clips and the sentimental value of it, or maybe just my Hormonal ass crying over Always. haha

Pukefest 2008....AGAIN???

I swear didn't we just do this???

It all starts technically 2 weeks ago when Kayla ended up in the E/R and the Dr's office for Breathing treatments with a really BAD case of Croup and Chest fun! She was almost admitted, but x-rays/bloodwork came back ok.

Then on Monday morning (long story...but here's the end result) the front of my oven (pretty new from kitchen remodel) glass exploded. Again...How fun!

and here's how it all follows:

Monday: Sierra runs 101-102 fever and come afternoon starts throwing up. Goes to bed with no throwing up...that's the good thing.

11pm Paige (after 4 days of diarrhea) start throwing up....and this continued every 10-15 minutes like clockwork the whole night (and next day) with a fever.

11pm I start throwing up. Yeah...poor Brad at this point. The guy seriously didn't sleep the whole night. We had gone to bed at 10:30pm.

12am Sierra wakes up with 103.5 fever...thankfully no throwing up anymore.

Tuesday: Paige is still throwing up every 10-15 min with diarrhea. Call dr, ends up at hospital dehydrated. So IV fluids and thankfully Zofran for the vomiting. After blood draw and most of the day, they let us go home.

Wednesday: Kayla starts throwing up in the afternoon, and continues all night long every 20-30 min.

Paige still has diarrhea and fever

4am Sierra out of the blue throws up on 2 separate occasions. She too still has fever.

Thursday: Kayla still throwing up and has low grade fever.

Paige...still lethargic and has fever.

Sierra...still has fever. Both Paige and Sierra pretty much stayed at the 101 mark the whole time.

11:00 Megan keeps waking up with a croupy type cough..not quite the barking seal, but not a normal cough either.

12:30 Megan wakes up throwing up. Continues through the night.

Friday: Megan still throwing up, but handling it well.

Kayla was going to school, but something was kinda off so I told her I wanted her to stay home...after much sadness...she agrees. Get in the car to take Aly to school, and she starts throwing up.

Paige....WooHoo...she's almost completely back to normal...talking up a storm, wanted to get dressed and do her hair, drinking. Still not eating, but I'm working on trying to get some little things in. has that wheezy growly type cough, but no vomiting or diarrhea.

Brad...he's doing all he can to keep from throwing up at work, and has a critical lab down (does HVAC) and can't leave work till it's done. :( far so good, but I anticipate tonight or tomorrow will be her turn. If I can stay out of the hospital E/R and dr's office for a few days...I may just make it. top it off...I am a coordinator for our whole 1st grade classes Luau that they are having on Wednesday. So still working on that as well.

If you got this far...BLESS YOUR HEART!

Time just passes by...

I have no excuses! Time just passes by and before I realize....days, weeks, and even a month go by with no posts from me. I will really try harder to get here daily, and to check on all my blogging "friends".

So here's the most recent update on us:

Baby #6 will be gracing us with it's presence around Nov 21st. (all my girls were a week early except for Sierra who came 3 weeks early) So as of today..I'm 12w3d with baby. =) Very EXCITED, and VERY DONE!!! Yeah, I know you have all heard that before. But Seriously...Done! I've talked with many moms who say they "just knew" when they were done, and I was like, cool...I hope I feel that way someday. Someday has COME! We are DONE after this little one.

Aly & Kayla only have 4 more weeks of school. How crazy and exciting! I can't wait for summer, but then again....I will then have a 2nd grader and a 1st grader. I will only have to go to the school 2xs a day. What will I do with myself?

Megan, Paige, & Sierra...Talk about a small mixture of personality. I swear Megan has the biggest Attitude of all 5 girls. We call it "Little Girl Syndrome". Like because she's petite, she has something to prove. lol Yet, she's still a really sweetie with some of the funniest saying/funnies. Paige...I can't believe she's going to be 3 soon. She's growing up and our next feat is POTTY Training. UGH...I figure once school is out, and I can devote a straight week of cleaning floors without having to constantly leave to drop off, pick up, pick up again, then we will start. Sierra...Her latest and to me the funniest thing is her laugh. She likes to throw her head back, cover her mouth and give the Biggest Belly Laugh!!! LOVE IT! She loves being with her sisters and is just so much fun.

Brad...Now there's a busy man! With the weather warming up, he's been busy at work, and busy working on the garden in the back yard. Not to mention he built a friend of ours 3 garden boxes for their family. I tease him that we have more fruit/veggies/garden items on our 7400 sqft lot than most do on an acre. Let me list some of "Brad's Farmers Market":

3 Apple trees
2 Pear trees
8 Blueberry bushes
4 Grape vines
1 Passion Fruit vine
Many..Many Tomato plants in many varieties
3 different type of Pepper plants
Many cucumbers plants, again different varieties
2 Pumpkin plants
4 Artichoke plants
Several kinds of squash (zucchini, spaghetti squash, yellow squash, etc)
Well Over 100 strawberry plants (he has a whole garden box devoted to these alone)
4 Blackberry Bushes (He got those for me..=) and they are thornless!)
1 Avocado tree

Well...that's all I can think of right now. I know there's more, but you get the gist of it. =)

Me...I'm doing better now. Had some morning sickness (before you decide I'm having a boy...I've had it with each one and almost exactly the same as each girl). I'm still tired, but doing much better. Just in the "I feel so fat" stage and don't look pregnant yet. Oh biggie, and soon enough I'll be sporting a big ole belly. haha Just in time for Summer.

And just because nobody has really seen pics of my Beautiful girls lately...My sister came and took these Friday so we could give our mom a pic for Mother's Day. She did a Great job, especially for such an impromptu photo shoot and minutes to get them together. Thankfully I had bought the dresses for a wedding we will be going to over Memorial Day weekend. =)

Here's my babies, and one with my niece as well...Aren't they all GORGEOUS?!?!?!
