My Poor Aiden

Aiden had tubes put into his ears about 1 1/2 ago, and we just recently found out hat one of his tubes had fallen out. Well that can be good or bad news, and in this case I am not really sure what to feel. Aiden has had this terrible cough for about 4 weeks now, so I decided to take him into the doctor to see if it was like bronchitis?? or something like that, I know better to rush them in for everything... most likely it will be viral and will pass. So off we went to the doctor today, 1 reason being for the cough, one reason being that yesterday we were trying to take family pictures for our Christmas cards, and I needed some extra light so I took the lamp shade off the lamp, and yep Aiden touched the light bulb and fried his hand, so that being the other reason. So we were at the doctor, and all is well, no fluid in the lungs, no rsv, no nothing they sound good, but how about them ears, what is the story with those. So he has always had major mochos and still to this day he does it is NASTY, so I asked the doctor, you know he has been tugging at his ears quite a bit, do you think his cough has something to do with the drainage of his nose, and possibly his ears. So my wonderful doctor checked his ears and sure enough, in BOTH EARS there is fluid, which could possibly cause the cough, and nasty nose. They are all connected. So I am so bumbed because I kinda had a feeling that our journey with Aiden and his ears was not over. So now we get to visit the ENT, and have all kinds of hearing tests done again on Aiden(which requires him to be sedated) which freaks me out. His story is quite long for just a 2 year old boy. Those familiar with the story knows how hard the journey has been for me, but we got through it and I know we will get through this one too. So PLEASE if you are reading this pray for both of us, we are going to need it. I think more so me then him, but poor guy has gone through so much as a mother I just hate having him have to go through more. In the end all will be well, but through these time and this news life kinda is not so much fun. Oh how much I love this little boy, he is so sweet. We will keep all updated on Aiden and his journey.

What is wrong with PEOPLE

So this will be my first post that will have no pictures, but right now I am really needing some words because I am really feeling down. So this morning I was getting Derick ready to take him to school, and I made his lunch today, but did not have a drink so we got in the car and I went to dig in my purse(that yes I had left in the car story to come) and it was not there... so I reached in my change thing grabbed him .30 and went off to school. Well I knew that something was not right when I went to my car and it was unlocked.. just could not pin point it at the time. Well when I reached for my purse and it was not there I just knew SOMEONE HAD STOLEN MY PURSE FROM MY CAR THAT WAS IN THE DRIVEWAY!!! well sure enough I get home check in the house, check in the car again, and then PANIC. So I go back in the house and logged on to my bank account and sure enough charges have been made, I am so ticked I start crying. $351.00 to Walmart $6.00 at chevron, $4.00 at some fast food place $ here $ there but I as most upset at walmart yeah not cool. So I call the bank cancel cards here cancel cads here at this time I can not even remember what was in my wallet, purse/diaper bag. I am so ticked and mad. Why you ask would I leave my purse in my car??? So lets backtrack to my day yesterday. I was out running some errands kids crying, yelling I am hungry, I am tired I want out, running around to try to be home by 2:45 because Aiden has therapy, so I get home at 2:40 something, Aiden had fallen asleep,so I had to wake him up. NOT GOOD TO DO THAT, Raegan had to pee, and was saying it over and over again, and Aiden therapist had just pulled up, I was in a rush had no extra hands and on top of it Aiden had leaked through his diaper so I needed to get situated and quick before more happened, oh yea Derick was still in the car. So he gets out shuts the van door and we carry on with the night. Well I had no extra hands to grab my purse or my cell phone, no biggie I will get them later. Well not so much, the day went on and my nephew came over to play, dinner rolled around bed time and so on, and well I just forgot. Shame on me, so this morning when I went out to the car windows were cracked and purse was gone. what to do what to do. So after starting my day off like this I am done and it was only 9:00am now it is like 1:00 and I just want the day to be over. The police came took all kinds of info down, but one good thing is that we were able to track these people/person by the places they swiped my card at and when. So when the police officer was here he said if you are not going to press charges I am not going to take it any farther then this. Well if they catch them I will press charges so off the officer went to help me. So about 1 hour later or so, KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK. Do you recognize these people, they through surveillance cameras were able to know who they were. Police are the they are on a mission to find them now. Stupid walmart the clerk even asked for id and the girl looked nothing like me at all. Well so now the police are on a mission to find these people. Seriously what is wrong with people to stoop that low and steal someones purse in there car in the driveway. I guess I am soon to find out. Well that outcome of this is yet unknown and we will all soon find out, but I still feel very violated.

Family Night

So our FHE was quite interesting last night. Gary and I had took the kiddos to the Pumpkin Patch, but not just any Pumpkin Patch, the one at Cal Poly because you can pick your own pumpkin from the vine and it is just cool, but anyways so as we were driving there MOM forgot to get directions because she thought she knew where it was and little did she NOT know where it was. So after driving around um for about 35 min or so we finally found it, and of course by this time Aiden had just woken up, and Derick and Raegan were yep sleeping. So as we are driving up the road we find out that IT'S CLOSED. I am so bumbed and at this point just want to go home, I am mad and hungry and trying not to take it out on Gary and vise versa. So we decide to go get some food. So we did and then Derick woke up and was so bumbed that we are not going to the Pumpkin Patch, so Gary and I look at each other and decide to go to this other Pumpkin Path my sister had told me about. Heritage Farms we were off, so we get there and it is 6:50 and can you guess what time they close, yep 7pm, so we hurried and ran up there and at least got some pictures and let the kids pick out a pumpkin, looked at some animals and I was talking to the lady and they do a Hay ride and all kind of stuff so needless to say we are going back on wed, and early enough so the kids an do all the fun things. So here are some pictures of out journey that night.

Comfort Kinda

So Gary got insurance through his work YEAH!! we are so excited, anyways so I made it a point to get all three of my kids in to the doctor just for a check up. All are doing well we found out that some kids still have some of the same problems that they have had for while, but it is very comforting to know that all is well. Last year our little Aiden had surgery, he had tubes put into his ears and to our suprise our amazing dotor had told us that that his tube in his left ear has fallen out. So now is going to be the big test on wiether Aiden's ear ill drain
like it is supposed to so it does not look like this ever again.(pictures are a tad gross, viewer disgession is advised)

So now is going to be the real challenge, will we have to deal with this for the next upcoming years of his life, or will all be fine? Who knows. We will just love him anyways.

Ashley's Baby Shower

An Anniversary Gift to My Parents


After we toe up old floor!!

The new Floor!!

So for my parents Anniversary all of us decided that it would be a great idea to gt my parents a new floor since some water damage had ruined it several years ago. So my mom picked out some flooring that she liked and we all chipped in and bought it for them. So last weekend Gary and Kevin installed it and they did such an amazing job. W decided that we should have a party so all who could come over came over and we watched them install it and just hung out and played while they worked there behinds off. Great work guys!! Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad!! We love you.

Grandma and Grandpa with Raegan Christmas 2005

So on Friday my sister Kelly called me and we were going to get together and go out to lunch with my kiddos, because her hubby and little boy are in Utah and so I told my kids about it and Derick was excited to see Ashton, which Raegan and Aiden fed off of him, Then I had to tell Derick that Ashton was in Utah visiting his grandma. Well to my surprise my sweet little Raegan said " no mom grandma is broken" So I said "no Hun Ashton is visiting HIS grandma" Well then she said"OH mom well OUR grandma is broken" So I said "she is" and Rae said "YEAH" so I said " well why do you think are grandma is broken" So Rae said " she went into the swimming pool and got broken and died" I said " grandma Watson did die you are right" So the Rae says " why did she die mom" I said she was sick and Heavenly Father wanted her to come home" Then Raegan said"ok I love her" I love the sweet innocence of children, they are so observant and have very selective hearing and a wonderful imagination. Here are some pictures over the years of grandma and Raegan. We love and miss out GRANDMA!!
