Dax and I are so excited!! We are going to be having a little GIRL! We both said we would love one of each since we only wanted to have 2 kids, and now we will have that! We would have been just as happy with another boy! I have to say though, I am going to LOVE have a little girl to dress up all cute and frilly! :) Rilan is looking forward to having a little sister too! Her name is going to be Zoie. We can't wait to meet you baby girl! We love you so much already.

I am soo excited to announce that Dax, Rilan and I will finally have our own house again! We will be moving to Keller to this awesome 5bd/3bath 3500sq ft. house at the end of April! We are so happy to finally have our own home again. We were looking at this community a few months ago and didn't know if it was right or not but we went back out this weekend and just knew it was the one. This was the old model that they were using so we are getting a great deal and awesome upgrades that they dont even offer anyone. The landscaping is beautiful and I love the grass! I have always wanted a house with fescue grass and now I am going to have it! :) I can't wait unil we move in. Its going to be AMAZING!

Rilan has really gotten to where he loves pancakes. Every morning he will ask for either pancakes or eggs. We ran out of batter the other day and he got really mad at me! I guess I should know better than to run out of batter! While we were grocery shopping the other day I was in the cooler section by the creamer and milk and I saw this can that said "Batter Blaster" I was like what in the heck so I picked it up it was spray pancake/waffle mix! I was hooked before I even started reading! We always have to make a big batch so we mix it right and have wayyyy to many pancakes so I thought that this would be perfect make as few or as many as you want and no bowls to clean up just the pan you cooked them in. Plus they are organic. I love this idea why didn't someone think of it sooner, or why didn't I find it sooner! Rilan is loving having pancakes again for breakfast!

So I thought that I would try and start doing Not Me Mondays. So here goes my first week as a Not Me! Mondayer. Is that even a word? haha
I did not put off doing the landry all week. I did not finally do it YESTERDAY. And my chair does not finally look like this again.
I am not ready to go to Colorado this week. I am am not scared about how bad I am going to be at snowboarding.
I did not already pack for the trip, because that would mean I am not being organized.
I did not try to practice in my snowboard for over 30 minutes yesterday in my living room. Because flat carpet is just like a snowy mountain! Gosh I wish I had a picture of that!
I am not dreading being away from Rilan for 5 days.
And on that not I am not looking forward to having an adult vacation and being alone with Dax for 5 days.
Okay pretty lame first Not Me! Monday post. I promise it will get better. Feel free to join in!! Be sure to check out MckMama's blog for her Not Me! Monday post.

So I went and got new fabric yesterday with Rilan, he helped me pick it out! Its black and cream toile! If you can't tell. :) Good taste he has! haha! I actaually finished it last night. I started about 3 yesterday afternoon and finished about 10:30 last night. I even stopped to play for a bit and eat supper! I love this one. It turned out quite a bit better than the other one. I am in the process now of making some pouches with the same fabric. I love the inside of this bag too because they have 6 pockets in the inside and the bag is reversable. But im having problems with the straps so you would see where the straps are attached if you reversed it but I love it anyway. :)

2 weeks from today Dax and I are getting to take an adult vacation! We are so excited. We are headed to Breckenridge Colorado with a few friends and hopefully my aunt and her fiance'. I can not wait to go although I have to admit and I am kinda dreading being away from Rilan. This will be the first time he is gone for more than a night since he was 6 months old. Going from being with him every day all day to not seeing him for 5 days is going to be very very hard for me to deal with. I am already having trouble just thinking about it. We are going over the Valentines holiday weekend so that should be really fun and hopefully romantic since we will be in the snowy mountians! We have not gotten to go snowboarding since we lived in Lubbock and it was an awful trip, I got sick and it was New Years eve and there were TONS of people there so we didn't get to do a whole lot of anything but wait in lines. I can't wait to see if I can actually still board, I have been working out like a mad woman and trying to loose as much weight as possible before we go so I'm not the one everyone is waiting on! :) I can't wait, it will almost be like a honeymoon for Dax and I since we only got a very very short one when we got married. I'm so excited to take our new camera, I am going to make Dax and I a scrapbook of our trip! I will post lots of pictures when we get back!
So this weekend I was lucky to receive an awesome gift from my in-laws! They got us a brand new Nikon D60!!!! I am sooo excited. Today I went and took pictures of Rilan at the train he loves. It is a vintage steam engine that was redone and is there for people to look at and climb on. I don't know how many of you know how much Rilan loves trains so this was so much fun for him to acutally get in it and "drive it." Maybe I can get the pictures uploaded and edited and up before tonights end! We will see if I can figure it all out! I am so exited I am going to be able to start taking awesome photos of the little guy!

The end of the week didn't go quite as well as the first. The next morning Rilan woke up not in the best mood, so Dax's dad wanted to take him to eat "bachi rice" thats what Rilan calls the Japanese Steak places. So off we went, Rilan didn't eat a thing and just wanted me to hold him, NOT like him at all. So I started feeling his head and he felt like he might have a little fever. We got back to the houe and I checked it sure nough he did. It was only like 100 at this point so I put him down for a nap hoping he might feel a little better when he got up. No such luck it was only worse, it had got up to about 101. That evening we went to see a friend of Dax's that lives in NY and was in town for the holidays. we were gone for about an hour. When we got back I was going to check his fever again and Dax's mom said she had done it about 30 minutes ago, and it was 98 or so, I was like well I will check it again to make sure its gone. I checked it and he was 103.2!! I freaked to say the least! He wasn't having any other symptoms but his fever so I had no clue what to do. The next morning I decided if he still had a fever to take him to Urgent Care. He still had a 103 fever when we got up so off to the Dr. we went. On the way I wasn't feeling well but thought I was just because I hadn't eaten anything. We got there and they told us that he had a ear infection in both ears and a mild throat infection. So he gave him a prescription for Amoxicillin and we were on our way to fill it. We ran to get him something to eat while they were filling it and I started feeling even worse. While we were in line at Walgreen's I told Dax to hurry and make a MAD dash back. I ended up getting a freaking stomach bug that was going around. I literally felt like I was dying, it was horrible. So that evening, I thought I could make it to my parents house before I needed to be back in a bathroom, so we loaded up and were on our way. Rilan sick as can be and me feeling horrible too. Poor Dax was a trooper taking care of us. I finally started feeling better in the night and woke up feeling much much better. Rilan's fever was finally down some. That morning we loaded everything up and came home. My mom came with us so that was a HUGE help, plus we needed her car to so we could get everything home. Well sorry for this novel. If we wouldn't have gotten sick it would have been much shorter! Hope all of you had a great Christmas and a wonderful New Year!!
