3 years ago today I became a Mommy!!! Dylan is 3 today!! Where has the time gone!!! Some days I can't believe he's 3 and others I feel like he's been around forever!!!
Here is our first picture of our family of 3!!! I seriously look awful!!!

Here are the 2 Grandma's with him!!!

Babies change soo much from the first time you see them!!

Here he is at 6 months. The bag in the background is the business that we own!! One of my favorite pictures of Dylan!

Today we had his well child check and here are his stats.......
Height- 39 3/4= 95%
Weight- 38 lbs.= 95%
The doctor thinks he going to keep growing and be tall like his uncles(on my side that is)!!!!
Dylan, where do I start with you!!! You have such a BIG personality and are so out going!!! You always have a lot to say!!! You are always on the go and hate sitting and never sleep much past when the sun comes up!!! We love you very much and wish you many more happy birthday's!!!!!

Party Time!!!!

Tonight we had Dylan's 3rd birthday party at the park!!! It ended up being a really nice evening and we had an awesome time with friends and family!!!
Here is Dylan with some of his favorite girls....Kennedy and Gentry!!!

And also with his other cousin Amillia!!!

The food turned out great! Dad made the meat, which is always good!!!

Dylan wanted a Curious George birthday party this year!! His favorite show!!!

We were gone this weekend(watching Shane play softball) and so I started the cake before we left and some things to go on the cake didn't come........so I had to improvise a little bit!!! Dylan didn't mind!!!:-)

Some of our FAVORITE people came!! Not sure what Aunt Kelli is talking about but she was really getting into it!!!

Dylan LOVED his cake!

So this is an awfull picture of us but it was the only decent one I got!!!

He did a great job blowing out his candles!

He had a couple helpers opening gifts!!!

Thanks to everyone who came(all 42 of you), you made Dylan's 3rd birthday wonderful!! He loves you all!!!:-)

Road Trips

Shane and I took a little road trip by ourselves!! Oh, it was so much fun. We had some friends invite us back to the Lake of the Ozarks again this year!!
Here is Shane with his drink of choice....

We went and listened to this guy play. He pulls people(just ladies) on stage to dance beside him!! And yep, he pulled me up there!! Someone actually has a video of me dancing up there but don't worry....it will NEVER make it to my blog!!!:-)

And again this year I just loved all the houses.....the one on the right is up for sale!!!!

These 3 were my favorites!!

And yes, I actually did get in the water!! Yuck, it's nasty but I was soooo hot, I had to get in!!

Thanks to my parents for watching Dylan while we were gone!! They REALLY spoiled him!! He even got to go to a water park with Grandma & Grandpa!!!
When we got home Dylan and I then made a quick trip down south to see Kennedy and Gentry. Here is Kennedy and Dylan enjoying a snow-cone!!!

All 3 of them were up at the bar eating breakfast and I thought it was so cute I had to take a picture!! Plus, they were all sitting!!!

We went to a water park with them also but I never got my camera out...darn it!! What a great time!!!:-)

Potty Training is going....okay. Getting a B+ for peeing part and about a D+ for pooping. Last night he had to go, so I took his potty chair outside....whatever works!!!

Shaun update..... He made it home from the hospital on Sunday. He is looking a lot better and also getting around really good(he has on a cam boot and also crutches). And he has his only personal nurse..Rachel!!!

Amillia......Still wasn't doing the best over the weekend but got to go home. I thought Sunday she looked a little better and her swelling on her face had gone down some. But yesterday still a temp. so Jenni and Grandma Anita took her to K.C. and they did surgery on the big spot/lump(not sure what to call it) to drain it. It's such a weird deal, not sure how to describe it all!!! They didn't have to stay in the hospital but do have to stay down there as she has an appt. on Wednesday!
Glad that everyone is on the mend!!! Please continue to pray for healing for both of them!!

Times 2

Now that we are done with harvest I thought this past week would be nice and quite. Not much going on....boy was I wrong!!! This girl here got put in the hospital on Tuesday night.

She was running a high fever and has a swollen face/jaw bone. They aren't real sure if she got bit by something or what's wrong. It just kept getting bigger and her temp. was high. So I went down Thursday night to stay with her for a few hours while her Mommy took a break!! Then I got a phone call that this boy had a bad dirt bike wreck!!!

Yep, my brother-in-law who just turned 19 on Tuesday and owned a dirt bike for 24 hours wrecked. And since my in-laws were in another state, we all rushed to the hospital to be with him. He has a real bad concussion and a bad cut on his leg!! Very sore and tired. We are hoping he will get out of the hospital today(Sunday).
And Amillia got out on Friday night but may have to go back in this week. Please keep both of them in your prayers!!
**A HUGE Thank you to the Hays Crew(see them on my side-bar blog list) for going to the ER and picking up Dylan and keeping him for us!! With both sets of Grandparents out of town it was nice to know you can count on someone to help you out!!!! You guys are the BEST!!!

HE DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I really thought maybe this day would never come!!! I thought maybe, just maybe I could still be wiping his butt in Jr. High!!!! But, HE DID IT!!! He pooped on his little toilet!!!
We had to put it in the living room!!! And get out combines but heck, whatever works!!

He yells...."Mommy, there something in the toilet!!!"!!!!!

We are soooo proud of him and let's just hope it continues!!!:-)
