About Me

My photo
We have a house full of boys! It can get a little crazy sometimes, but I wouldn't change it for the world! Matt: "Matty" He is the best husband, and father anyone could ever ask for! Matt is the most driven person, he puts 110% into everything he does! Logan: "Hollywood" I am just a fun loving mom! I live for my three boys! You could also say I am a little bit of a shopaholic! McCoy: "Mac Daddy" He is the boy of many faces! He definately keeps us busy! Mac is the biggest flirt! A ladies man for sure! And last but certainly not least Madden: "Madman" is such a sweet boy! But at the same time can be a little stinker!He is very strong willed, Just like his daddy! He absolutly loves his brother, and smiles and laughs at him constantly! We are all learning and growing day by day...

Broken or not broken?

On friday night McCoy was climing into the car and slipped......falling smack dap on his face....in our driveway! OUCH!!! He screamed bloody murder! His nose was bleeding and his lip and nose immediatly swole up! He did quite a number to his nose, lip, and face. He would not let me touch it! After he stopped crying he seemed ok, still a little squeemish if anyone got near it! But being the weekend and all I thought that I would wait till Monday and decide if i needed to take him to the doctor for immediate care! So for the last 2 nights every time McCoy's nose would graze his pillow he screamed! So this morning i called his doctor to tell her what was going on, and of course she wanted to see him....... His little nose has a big bruise across the bridge then down from that to the tip it goes a little crooked! So he was a very good boy and held very very still for the doctor to look at. She said it was really swollen inside but she thinks it might be broken up near the septum which she cannot see with her scope. So she scheduled an immediate appointment with an ENT doctor tomorrow to do xrays and possibly scoping his nose! Just to be sure! Even if its nothing I would rather be safe than sorry......

Madden's Walking!!!

I can't believe it....my little baby is all grown up!! At just 10 1/2 months old Madden is walking across rooms! Its so funny to see his lil' body just up and moving! And to think his first birthday is on February 7th.....just around the corner! I could cry!!!

I know that I am so behind on posting my pictures! im sooooo bad! But we had an amazing christmas! The boys made out like bandits!!! They got a new train table.....Personalized picture books.....new engraved bracelets.....Buzz Lightyear and Woody.....you name it, i think they got it! We had a great brunch at Mike and Michelles, and then followed that by an amazing prime rib dinner at my grandparents! It was a wonderful day all around!

Christmas Eve

We started by going to Matts parents house for dinner, then we went home to frost some special homemade sugar cookies for Santa Clause. Every year the boys get special christmas Jammies and then we take their pics...... This year we made some Reindeer food at McCoys preschool christmas party....So Matt and I took Mac outside to sprinkle it on the lawn, you know....so the reindeer will smell it and come to our house.

Bulldog or Sleddog

On the first snow this year, we went and bought McCoy a new sled! he had a blast! But we just weren't pulling him fast enough! So we decided to hook up our 80lb english bulldog puppy Magnum! He just loves playing with the boys! We put on his harness and hooked him up to the sled and off he went! One of us would hold magnum and the other one would go to the end of the street and would call him! He would trott right to us! and McCoy had a BLAST!!!! It was so hilarious! However our lazy Bulldog got about enough excercise for a year or so!

The Three Bishop Babies

This is Katie and I's attempt at getting all three bishop babies to cooperate for a picture.....Didnt turn out well! We could not get them all to smile at the same time to save our lives! We tried every bribe we could think of! Even puppets! No such luck...but here are a few cute ones we got!

Garden A Glow

This is our first time going to the Botanical Gardens... for the winter garden a glow! I have never seen so many lights! It was definately a little chilly but we were all bundled up enough to enjoy it! We kind of had to rush through because we arrived about 20 minutes before closing! It was a great new tradition for all of us!

McCoy choosing his own jammies.....Only apparently he couldn't choose just one set! So he decided to layer! And not only that, most of it was on backward!

A chilly trip to the zoo

In early December Emily and I decided to take the kids to see the new Safari Exibit at Zoo Boise.
It was a great trip. It wasn't too cold and it wasnt too hot for the animals to be out. I actually think I saw more animals that day then I ever have before! I definately think that the big hit were the Lions and the Tigers! I cant wait for our next trip!
In deep conversation

Happy go lucky Madden
