Time to Update

Well its time to get back to blogging. I contemplated quitting but its a fun way to stay in touch; especially to far away family. Its also an easier way to journal.

Many changes have happen to our family and we are getting back to normal. We recently moved into some apts. near Sac State and I'm going back to school. Troy is working and watching the kids, he's amazing. That's pretty much everything in a nut shell.

The kids are so much fun. Three is a good time but getting much done with three is a challenge. Now here are some pics. Sorry Julie, it took me so long to get pics up I will try to be better. We love and Miss you tons.

Laura is a tree, Leta and Jen are Burt and Ernee, Kali is Snow White and Mattox is a dragon (just like last year, but he was so excited to be it again when he saw it in the Halloween bin). The kids had lots of fun and got just the right amount of candy. Leta made some great chili too. Ava was a bee but wasn't feeling very good so we didn't make her get dressed up.

New Years Eve Mattox starting to throw up again already having the flu on Monday. So we stayed home and watched movies. Around midnight Mommy and Kali caught the flu all night long. Troy was so great and took care of all of us, luckily Mattox had stopped. It continued to the next day but the worst was over and then Daddy got it. That night Mattox started up again sparatically. So I cleaned him up and then put him and myself to bed, exhausted from the night before. Then they came at 3:00 in the morning. CONTRACTIONS! I was so tired and in major denial, my due date was Jan. 21, I tried to go back to sleep but no such luck it was for real. She came at 7:45am. Weighing in at 6lbs and15oz, Yes! A small baby! Welcome Ava Ashley Turner.

Troy was such a trooper and thankfully his flu didn't last as long. So does the flu bring on contractions? Apparantly dehydration does.

Baby on the Way!

Some fun pictures my cousin Jenny took of the kids and I.

The Littlest Nutcracker

Kali's first performance! Trix puts on the Littlest Nutcracker for all the ballerinas to dance in while all their family came to watch. When we first sat down in the audience I showed Kali the stage and told her that she was going to get to dance on that stage. She was already a little irritated about the itchy costume and told me she didn't want to dance, as little tears rolled down her cheeks. So I told her she didn't have to dance on the stage and we could just watch. Then the lights went down and the curtains opened up revealing the beautiful dancers and magical Christmas scene. Kali sat up right and moved to the end of the chair and looked at me and told me that she changed her mind and did want to dance on the stage. She sat and watched until it was our groups turn. She did a great job.

Kali's 4th Birthday

My sweet Kali turned 4 in December and had a princess and dragon birthday party it was a lot of fun the kids made tiaras and shields and had skirts and swords to play with. We played games and of course had a pinata. Kali was so excited all day her birthday was finally here. Grandma Debbie made castle cupcakes, they were so yummy.

Mattox had his 2nd birthday Aug 18 (same as daddy). Grandma Debbie made him this cool Train Cake which Mattox was extremely excited about. He showed it to everyone. He such a fun little boy, he loves to tease his sister, gives lots of hugs and kisses, and make people laugh. His favorite things include motorcycles, trucks, cars and bugs and dirt.

These are some pics from Julies Baby Shower. I laughed so hard; everyone was so willing to participate in the games it was great. (Just in case you've never heard of the poop game and are wondering what is in the diaper its chocolate) If your wondering why Julie is laughing so hard its because the cat jumped in her gift bag while she was opening the present. I'm so exited for Julie and her first baby.
