Hyper active and moody at the same time?

My day was calm until my  miss Kelsee came home with her dad after he got off work. She stayed at grandma's last night and was there till about 4pm today. First thing she was doing when they got home was trying to get candy out of daddy's pocket but we typically eat at 5pm so he was telling her no. Next thing i know she's over on the love seat bawling cause she wants candy. Really? LOL Then once she got over that she was bouncing off the walls and hyper as all get out and, wouldn't settle down for anything. Then next thing that happened was Tyler had grabbed my friends little girls gloves off the stand that she left yesterday and was playing with them. Nate had her take them from him and bring them to me, well i told her put them back on the stand and she started to repeat what Nate said, i told her i heard and she still went on repeating him so i yelled at her cause i was a little annoyed and a little tired next thing i hear is Nate telling me to calm down and she was in her room crying again? What is the deal with that, must be a new thing cause she makes us yell alot and never crys. She got in trouble alot tonight and cried alot also, i think she was just overly tired from all the fun she had at grandma's house! 
Nate and i finally got caught up on laundry folding this evening before the kids were put to bed...i hate folding laundry! LOL So now i can get caught up on my laundry, i haven't been doing as much cause both baskets were full and so i've only been doing a load a day so i only have to fold the load on the bed! LOL Washed some of the kids clothes from Christmas and the other load is in the dryer of the rest of their new Christmas clothes! Both kids wore new jammies to bed and of course i got some pictures!!Which i wanted to upload but apparently my computer isn't gonna let me, my signal is poor! I will just download them to my fb tomorrow if i get a chance but they are totally cute pictures! So if your a friend of mine on Facebook you'll see them in the Tyler and Kelsee folders! Tyler is wearing very soft a warm jammies, that really aren't jammies its a one piece outfit but he doesn't wear those anymore and it was too cute to pass up. Its his second one piece outfit that i've bought that i use as jammies! LOL Then Kelsee has on ICarly Jammies that she got from her daddy, i'm not a fan of her watching Icarly but he has let her for so long its a lost cause. She was being a major ham for pictures tonight, so i got some really good ones of her. Then i got one of Tyler where he's saying cheese...its so cute. He's starting to pick up a word a week i swear, his vocabulary has skyrocketed in the last three weeks, he must say about 6 new words! Its awesome, cause we were starting to worry about his speech, he was only saying like 3. Alright well its getting late and i want to be in bed before midnight tonight! LOL Its 11:41pm....not much time! Have a good day tomorrow everyone!

christmas festivities

We celebrated Christmas with my mom , Brason, step dad, brother, sister in law, niece and nephew on December 18th. Because my niece and Kelsee's birthdays are December 14th and December 19th we also  celebrated birthdays for them. We opened presents, everyone was pleased with their presents and then we ate dinner! Dinner was delicious, especially my favorite (Deviled Eggs), and then we had birthday cake! My mom made the girls a butterfly cake!
The cake was delicious and Kelsee had part of the purple! Her cousin Trevor originally took it from her, i have a picture of her pouting but Aunt Christal gave it back to her and gave Trevor the pink wing part.
The next time we celebrated for Christmas was Tuesday December 21st, we had a gift exchange with a friend of mine and her two kids. The kids got gifts for each other, Tyler got from them a box of fruity Cheerios and a Christmas themed Cheerios book. Its cute it has little holes in certain places on the pages where you put the Cheerios, i'd never seen this book before! Kelsee got a Princess DS game, which she opened immediately and began to play it. Her being herself, was trying to keep it away from my friends little girls eyes to see the screen, and not being nice. I don't know why she does that sometimes, cause just 5 minutes before she got the present they were playing in her room happily. My friend still has a present for Tyler but last we seen each other she hadn't received it in the mail yet! I'm super excited, as i think its a cloth diaper....!!!! I could be wrong..never know! We got her kids pjs and a shirt for her boy(same age as Tyler), and Knee highs, Dress up shoes and black sparkly leggings for her daughter ( year younger then Kelsee). We had a great time with them, always do!
Christmas eve we went to my dads house and the kids opened all gifts that said from mommy, daddy, Kelsee or Tyler. So they each opened about 5, and i opened my new sheets! They are our first pair of flannel sheets, and they were nice and toasty last night and very soft! I got them from my husband, and then my dad and his g/f were like you bought her sheets for Christmas? I don't see whats wrong with that but apparently my dad would catch hell if he bought her anything for the household for Christmas or birthday! I could care less, i'm still using it! LOL The kids stayed at grandpas Christmas eve while mommy and daddy went home. We had to peel mushrooms, yuck my hands smelled horrible afterwards. We didn't get to bed till about 1am and got up at 7:15am. Got down to my dads Christmas day about 9am and the kids got to open their Santa presents from us. TONS of toys and a few clothes!
Tyler with his first present Christmas morning, and in his Ooga booga diaper that we got from diaper swapping with a friend from Ohio!
Kelsee with one of her morning presents, she's so excited to play this maybe we'll get it out next weekend when we're not as busy the whole weekend! In the afternoon my dads g/fs daughter, her husband and their little girl and then my dads g/fs son, and my aunt and her bf came over for lunch and more gift unwrapping. We had a non traditional lunch from Casa's, Casa's salad, Lasagna, stuffed mushrooms (made by Nate), some noodle and sausage concoction my dads g/f made, and crescent rolls that were coated inside and out with garlic butter. We all got some awesome gifts and Christmas couldn't have been better this year! I'm so glad its finally over, but now i have a day to clean my house and get in order, cause we have a play date schedule for Tuesday morning! Happy holidays everyone i hope yours was as great as ours!!

Holiday spirit!

I have no holiday spirit! LOL I've been trying to get some but its just not happening, i've been listening to Christmas music in the vehicle every time i drive, which is alot. Still no Christmas tree in our house, and there probably won't be one this year, but there are stockings above the fireplace! And i've thought about hanging lights on the mantle, maybe i'll do that tomorrow! LOL We don't spend Christmas at our house, so really the no tree is not a huge deal, my kids still see a tree at grandpa's house and his is real. My husband and I spent two hours last Friday wrapping gifts, so glad to have that done with! We already celebrated one Christmas with my mom, step dad, Brason (their foster son), my brother and his family, last Saturday. This week we will be going to my dads Christmas eve possibly staying the night, and then eating an nontraditional Christmas dinner at 12pm, and opening presents with my dad, his g/f, my little sister, and my dads g/fs kids at 1pm. Then we might go to my husbands best friends parents house to spend some time with their family and get the kids gifts from them, they are Nate's second family, since all his are out of state. Then we're not celebrating with Nate's dad until January 8th, because we're busy up until then, and he lives in Michigan.

     I got a sewing machine for Christmas (technically thanksgiving) and i'm so excited to learn to sew cloth diapers. My first attempt at a newborn diaper was miserable, and i didn't take any pictures. I made a couple cloth wipes with the extra fabric that i had left over from the first diaper, and then i got a different fabric out and made another newborn diaper for my daughters dolls. Here's how it turned out........

I'm pretty proud that i'm getting better at making them. I'm going to add velcro tomorrow, it will be my first time attempting that! LOL Wish me luck! For having not sewn since 6th grade, i think i'm doing fairly well. My husband learned alot about the machine and different settings when looking into buying it for me, so when we first opened it he played around with it, while i watched. And if i have a problem with threading the bobbin or something its nice that he can help! If there's anyone who reads this that sews and has pointers, i'd be open to hearing them!
Alright well I'd better get to bed, but before i go to bed i'd like to request a few prayers. A friend of mine's daughter had more tests done today with her blood, she's had a pic line in and went today to see about getting it taken out i do believe, and now they think she might have something else going on with her blood. Please pray its nothing serious and that she gets the pic line taken out before Christmas, she's had it for two weeks, going on three! Second i'd like another prayer request for another friend of mine, her mom is having surgery on a heart valve (pretty sure that's what it is) tomorrow, and i would just ask that you keep her in your thoughts in the morning and that everything goes smoothly. Their family has been through alot this month already, they need good news before the holidays! Ok one more, another friend of mine needs your prayers and thoughts for her dad, he had surgery today. So far he's doing well but you just never know, i ask that you make healing prayers and that he continues to do well in his recovery! Thank you everyone and have a wonderful evening!!

Another year gone....

My Kelsee turned 5 years old can that be? Seems like just yesterday she was learning to walk and talk. LOL Ok maybe not just yesterday but, it sure doesn't seem like 5 years has gone by. Here is a picture of Kelsee when she was 1 year old opening presents her 2nd christmas! She has grown so much since this picture its insane, (sorry for the red eyed baby!) LOL

I woke Kelsee up with singing the happy birthday song to her, and first thing she said when she was awake while standing on her bed, "Mommy now that i'm 5 years old i'm taller!" To which i told her no Kelsee you are not taller you are just older, she tried argueing her case but in the end dropped it. Then about an hour or so later we were getting our coats on and getting ready to leave for the library, i notice that she's having trouble with her coat, and she says "mommy now that i'm 5 can i say......" she left a blank. I figured she was meaning a cuss word like S H I T or somthing, so i said no just cause your older does not mean you can say bad words. Her reply was "but audri does"? Audri is her friend who is 22 days older then her, i'm guessing she does not say bad words but i just told Kelsee i don't care what Audri does she's not my child. Later that day she told me she wanted to say dangit...i don't know why she would ask if that was ok cause she says that all the time. LOL Going back to earlier that day at the library, she asks "mom now that i'm 5 do i have to wear my winter coat over my fleece?" Yes Kelsee you still have to stay warm even though you are older, doesn't mean things are going to change! LOL Anyone else have a 5 year old that asks silly questions like this? We took her to Chuckie Cheese in the evening just a small family get together for her birthday and she had a blast of course! I forgot my camera in my mom's van earlier that day, so all my pictures are on my phone and i haven't looked for the USB cord to transfer them! But she got tons of presents and still has 3 more to open from mommy and daddy that, Nate decided he didn't want to take to Chuckie Cheese. He didn't want people to think she was a spoiled brat....even though everyone knows how spoiled rotten she is! LOL Daddy's little princess!

I got Tylers results back from his poop test, everything was normal. Now i'm supposed to get some blood tests done, which if i can find the paper i'm thinking i might get them done Friday. I can't remember what they are for though at this moment! LOL He is still going to Indianapolis in january, except i need to call and reschedule an appoinment because i double booked today. I now have the Endocrinologist and genetics appt at 2pm! LOL ooops I'm hoping one of them has sa later appointment and we can keep all 3 appointments on January 14th, makes it much more simpler for our family and taking off work for my husband.

In the meantime, i'm trying to get different products that i'm fans of on Facebook to let me review their products and possibly do giveaways! So stay tuned for that, i'm sure you'd love to join in on the fun if i get to do a giveaway or two!

Today i finally got two out of the three appointments scheduled for Tyler but, not until January. January 21st he is going to see an endocrinologist and a electrophysiologist Dr at 10am and 2pm. We have to take him to Riley hospital which is in Indianapolis Indiana, i think its a 2-3 hour drive for us. December and January can't go quick enough to get these appointments over with...

The other doctor he's going to see is in the metabolism department at Riley children's hospital but i'm waiting for them to call me, they like to talk to the patient to schedule the appointment not the nurse. Hopefully we can get that scheduled either the Thursday January 20th, or later in the day on the 21st. My husband isn't crazy about taking off a Friday as it is the biggest day for his pay during the week but, like i told him i could get someone else to go with me but i'd really prefer my husband be there.

Next week Tyler goes back to the gastrointologist doctor for another four week checkup, they have yet to call with the results of his poop testing. I've also made two phone calls this week to the hospital and a doctor's office and left messages for them to call me back....and haven't heard anything from them either. Ugh, very frustrating guess i have to call again if i want it done. I'm hoping the gastrointologist can maybe scratch off us going to the endocrinologist if Tyler is gaining weight better now that he's on the appetite enhancer medicine twice a day now. He seems to be eating a ton better and more often!

Today we woke up to snow...not my favorite but here is Tyler after we took sister to school, he loves his new hat! He used to pull them off as soon as i put them on his head, but he's doing so much better which is great cause i'm determined to have no ear infections this winter! The hat also came with gloves and a scarf, his sister stole the scarf and wore it to school! LOL

So i am kinda having an issue with Kelsee's coming home after school, maybe people who read this can give me input. I asked one of the mom's if she would mind bringing Kelsee home on the days she was able to which originally was Monday and Wednesday, and then her Teacher would bring her home on Thursdays. I have someone bring her home because she goes to preschool from 12:30-2:45, Tyler Naps from 1pm-anywhere from 3:30-4 pm usually. Even if i laid him down as soon as we got back he'd most likely still nap till 3:30pm, i really hate to have to cut his nap shorter cause it'd mess up his entire schedule. He'd probably be ready for bed earlier then 8pm, which means he'd only get to see his dad for an hour or so some afternoons, and he'd be up an hour or so earlier, which he's up at 7:30 or 8am as it is. I've been thinking of asking the teacher if i could maybe have another mom's phone number that picks their child up all the time, and is there more then not there. Cause the mom that brings Kelsee home now, if her son doesn't want to stay at school, they leave, or like today she didn't have room in her van i guess? I'm fine with her not wanting to bring her home, i'll find someone else but i did ask her originally and she said she didn't mind? UGH its frustrating. Today Nate was home before Kelsee which was a half hour after Kelsee was out of school, and i had gotten Tyler ready and was walking out the door cause i was freaking out that she wasn't home yet. Nate went and picked her up, and she was helping the teacher clean and decorate the room..which is fine cause Kelsee loves to do that stuff. But i wish she would have called or something to let me know, cause she's usually always home 10-15 minutes after school, and when that long had passed i was freaking out. She felt bad and apologized to Nate and he told her it was fine just sometimes i panic about certain things. Almost as if i shouldn't have panicked? But in this day and age its hard to say what could happen and the things that were going through my head weren't good. Another thing is, i'm thinking of doing in home daycare starting in January so then i'll need someone to pick Kelsee up for school and bring her home...i just don't know what to do. I wish there was someone close to me that could do it, so i didn't have to ask a stranger but there isn't anyone that would be able to. Ok enough ranting i better start getting Tyler ready for bed its 7:30pm, another night he probably wont see daddy before he goes to bed. :(

ps. sorry so long! LOL
