Grandma: She came home on Wed; and is in need of constant help for a while, so if anyone can help that would be great!!! Other than that she is feeling, looking, and eating better. Thanks for all of your prayers.
House: Nothing has really changed on the outside so, that is why there have been no new pictures. However; they have all of the plumbing, heating and air, and most of the electric done. They are hoping to have our 4- way inspection on Tues. They poured our basement stairs and our porch cap, and our windows finally came, so they are going to put them in tomorrow. On Monday the Central Vac people are coming to put that in. (Hooray, because I think my Dyson is going out) Well, we are slowly getting there. Our builder has been fantastic and really on top of things, let’s just hope he can keep it up!
Kids: We have had some sick kids, (SAD) but I think we are all on the mend. Now I just hope we can stay healthy through the holidays. We finally found our tree and the kids decorated it all by themselves. We have also done some fun cooking: We made rice crispy houses, (they turned out cute) homemade cinnamon rolls. (Heavenly) Tyler’s “famous” Chex mix (she makes it all by herself, and adds tons of yummy stuff) she thinks she is the bomb.

She “thought” the Dr. said she could go home Fri or Sat, but when I talked to her tonight, she said doesn’t think she feels ready. I am VERY proud of her for admitting it, and I think a few more days might help her too.
She was kind of bummed because they took the cords for her electric blanket away, (that is like taking her birthday away, or worse)but they did let her keep her blanket.
Trav putting lotion on Grandma's hands
They are soooo dry??? meds maybe??
Tyler checking Grandma's IV,
She is looking better :)
This is her IV , see why it will be nice to have that taken out!!
Take note of the bracelets... They caused lots of tears at our house.
One says fall risk,which Tyler said was rude! She felt like it is rude for them to let EVERYone know Grandma some times falls.
And the other is a DNR.... Which we explained to the kids what that meant (yes Grandma was there to help explain) and Brayden lost it. Poor kid, but after a long talk he seemed to be better. It wasn't until later he told us he thought They (the nurses there) put it on Grandma ,and thought she didn't have a say. Now that he knows that she does and the reasons why, he understands.
Some times it is hard growing up!!!!
Thanks for everyone who has prayed for and helped her at this time, I know she really appreciates it. I know I sure do!!!

Here she is showing the kids all of her battle wounds....
Tyler was fascinated, but Brayden about threw up!! He hates hospitals :)
She seems to be doing a little better, but they did tell her she is going to have to go to a "rehabilitation" center. (aka nursing home) for a few weeks (ish) she was NOT happy and doesn't want to go, but she knows she can't take care of her self right now :(
So PLEASE Pray that she can get the strength back so she can go home soon!!!
Until then....... REHABILITATION CENTER HERE WE (all) COME!!!!!!
Thanks to all of our family, friends, co workers, ward members old and new for all of your help!!!!
It is greatly appreciated!
The bonus room and stairs in ....

Monday... Is my cleaning day! The only day of the week that I really clean, Trav usually has a lunch meeting, so I stay stinky and smelly until all of my house work is done! It also happens to be early out day for the kids; they get out at 2:30, then I pick them up and we go straight to the library! We LOVE the library up here, it is soooo great! After at least an hour, we head home to make dinner and get ready for FHE :)
Tuesday... Tues mornings I help out at Brayden’s School, then it is lunch with my honey, pick the kids up from school and we head down to Utah County for Tyler's clogging and to check on Grandma Ina Mae. This is our late night; we usually don't get home until 9 or so.
Wednesday... I do the fluoride treatments at Tyler’s school in the morning, again lunch with Trav, Piano lessons (both kids) right after school, and then it is Young men’s for Brayden ;)
Thursday... Back to Braydens school for a few hours, meet up with Trav for lunch, and this is my shopping day (food, cleaning stuff whatever we need) then every other week is achievement days for the little miss, this is the night of the week we just get to hang out... ahhhhhhhhhhh
Friday... This is the day I get to have adult conversation :) Some weeks I work at the bank from 9-1 and others I work 1-6 depending on which one; depends on if Trav gets to get off work early when the kids get home! Either way let the weekend began!!!!!
On the weekends we just hang out and enjoy each other’s company, and the company of family and friends.
So that is what we do, It is not too much different than what we did before, except I get to have lunch with Trav almost every day(Which I LOVE!!!!!!) and he gets home MUCH earlier.

Doesn't she look BEAUTIFUL!!!
I can't believe this day has already come and gone! She is such a good girl and we are SO VERY lucky to have her in our family!! Thank you Tyler for all you have taught me!
I pray you will continue to be so strong willed, (for good of course) and always remember who you are and what you stand for!
We love you!!!

We had a busy but fun weekend. Thanks everyone!!Don't ask me how kids can sleep like this and still walk in the morning!
Tyler is not sure... but look at the size of the flakes!
poor Brayden you can't see his cute little face
They did go out with some of the neighbor kids
and had a snowball fight after dinner,
But it was too dark to get any pics.
We got a lot more snow yesterday;
we are hoping it melts by this afternoon :)

This was her first "kid" Baby Joey... and he could do no wrong! He was her favorite!!
First day of Pre-school with baby Brayden
Couldn't even get her picture taken without them!
(Joey, Emily and Bryley)
She had to sleep in a Queen bed to fit them all.
Oh, how I miss this!!!!
Like all exhausted mom's ... she fell asleep feeding her baby.
I guess like mother like daughter!
Just last night when I went to tuck her into bed I had to move her A.G doll out of the way so I could give her a kiss!! Good to know she is still my same little girl , just getting bigger.
