Haileys Heart



Hailey had her cardiology appointment yesterday. She was being so sweet to all the doctors " you are not going to give me a shot right!?" She has the heart condition SVAS a narrowing of the left valve in the heart. The doctor said that it is ok for now because she is growing so slowly...we could have a problem if she starts growing faster and it doesn't grow with her. I did ask what the chances that she would have to have open heart surgery and the doctor said probably close to 50%...she acted like that was really good news....doesn't sound too good to me! We will just have to cross that bridge if and when we get there...and hopefully it never does!

On the 1st Day of Christmas

...My True Love Baked for Me:
CARMEL CORN!
You will need:
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 cup butter
1 tsp salt1 tsp baking soda
8 quarts popcorn
Preheat oven to 200 degrees
I can never get the regular popcorn not to burn on my stove...so I use good old microwave bags! Combine all but baking soda and popcorn in a heavy pan. Bring to a boil at a rapid boil for 5 minutes. Then add soda. This will make the mixture rise so your pan should be big. Pour over popcorn as the mixture is rising. Mix with two wooden spoons until popcorn is fully coated.
Bake at 200 degrees for half an hour turning the popcorn over every 15 minutes.
Enjoy!! It's our tradition to eat while were listening to Christmas music and decorating our tree :)

Halloween

Stole a few pictures from Summer from our Halloween trip to Texas.



Nate's new hobby

Ok so I still don't have my camera back, but I figured out to upload pictures from my phone...so here are the 2 1974 Ford Broncos that Nate has been spending much of his free time on :) He iis keeping 1 for the parts and will get rid of it when he is done so we will just have 1. He said he is about 65% done with the engine...then for the fun part...the body!

Look what Nate dug up on his job site the other day...there have been 7 bodies (skeletons) total. They speculate it could have something to do with the 1930's mafia......creepy!

Where was Nate ALL summer?

Here are just a couple of the hundreds of photos taken of Nate's jobs this summer. Denver Public Schools are his largest client. He was the project manager for dozens of schools and got to do a lot of that awesome concrete painting himself! We are so proud of you babe! Thanks for working so hard to provide for our family!

A Long Summer

It's been an incredibly long summer so far!! Hailey has been out of school since May and our days are extremely LONG!

Nate is still very busy and leaves before I wake up and doesn't get home until sometime after 10pm...most of his projects will finish in September so we should be getting back to normal soon! This summer I have pretty much felt like a single mom! AHHHHH

The girls are growing and learning new things everyday!

Hailey starts Kindergarten Aug 25Th...she will be going from 9 to 12:30 Monday through Friday and as she adapts to that we will see when she can handle 9 to 3 everyday! I know I can handle that ;) Looking forward to celebrating her 5Th Birthday!!!!

Ashtyn is talking so much more and starting to put together 2 to 3 word sentences! Love to hear her say "Bye bye mama!"

I am still so thankful that I get to get out and work 4 nights a week! I am now consistently working at 2 of the 4 locations and managing sometimes the location right in downtown Denver! I continue to LOVE my job!

For all of our California friends and family...we are coming out for a visit the first week in October! We will spend the first 3 days in LA and the last 4 up in Kingsburg! We are so excited! It has been long over due! Nate will be joining us as well so we can start catching up on some missed family time!
