If you've had a birthday

Yes, birthday time rolled around again. It was a pretty good birthday, nothing big which is ok because I've decided I dont want to get any older. Acknowledging it makes it more true. I am excited that I get a new washer and dryer for my birthday. Well mostly for the house but we are buying them the same month as a my birthday. It works. Besides we have never owned a large appliance before, very exciting. Mom left some balloons on my car that I found as I went to take Patrick to preschool. Balloons are fun, 28 is not as fun, mostly weird.

The fresher the better

We started getting our eggs fresh from the buntings. I think they are better and much more fun to get.

We're moving!! Again!!!

We have been slowly looking for a house to rent so we will have enough room while we save up to buy our own house. Well the other day, one just fell right into our laps! Robby and Tamara Hunt have been renting their house to the Proffer family and they moved. So it was available and we got a call from David Bunting about it. I couldnt resist, I sent Tammy a message and one day they were going over to look at things and guess what?? The price was perfect and we get to upgrade and decorate the way we want!! I am so excited!!! We have sooooo many plans! Its an older home so there is a lot of work to be done but we are very anxious to get started. I will be starting a separate blog with before and after pictures because we are starting big changes tomorrow. I will have to borrow a camera (Mom) for pictures since our camera died. We will sadly be moving out of the Monica ward but we will be happily be moving into the East Hills ward. I am excited for little things, like having a backyard for Patrick to play in. I have been craving a backyard for him for a long time so he has room to run outside without fear of him running into a parking lot or into the lake. I am excited that the kids will have their own rooms so naps will run a little more smoothly. I am excited about room in the kitchen!!! We realize it will take a long time to get things the way we want them but it will be a beautiful little home when we are done (its beautiful now, just a little rusty and dusty) it will only be improved.

Scary Halloween

I did have a real scare for Halloween. Lately Elena has loved playing in the toilet just like any 14 month old. Sooooo we try to remember to leave the toilet lids closed and the bathroom doors shut. Unfortunately she got into them a couple times on Saturday. The first time I was sewing a baby blanket and Patrick was having a nap and Jesus was napping on our bed. She found the bathroom door open and the toilet lid up. She basically just pulled most of the toilet paper off the roll and put it into the toilet and played with it in the water. I went to find her when it was quiet and found her elbow deep in the toilet. I stripped her down and bathed her. After she was all dressed and clean, Jesus left to run some errands and I went back to sewing while she wandered around finding little things to play with. A few minutes later I heard her sort of yelp which usually means she can't pull something out of something else and she is frustrated. This yelp sounded a little different and I had a feeling something was wrong. After the yelp it got quiet and I decided to find her quickly. I didnt know where she was so I listened again and I heard the same little muffled yelp. I ran to the bathroom and found her head first in the toilet drowning. I pulled her out as quickly as I could and she was sopping and terrified. I held her and cried thinking about what I would have lost if I hadnt followed my instincts to find her. I bathed her again, this time she was very nervous of the water, but afterwards I held her for a long time and then she fell asleep. I am now constantly looking to check if the bathroom doors are shut because I am honestly terrified.
