Curt finally made his sport tree this year up in his sport room with his 2 favorite teams the Yankees and Steelers....I thought it was cute!!! My tree still needs a few more things on it but we love sitting in the living room just looking at the lights!!
Curt and I were married in the SLC temple for time and all eternity 18 years ago!! Nothing makes me love him more then too see him take care of us, play "get you" with every one of his kids at one time or other(the boys are a little too old for that), Wake up early to go to work and provide for us, coach his boys in baseball and basketballl, talk with a teenager about friends and even girls :0), correct the kids when they are not respecting me, not matter that the house is not perfectly clean with a 2 year old around, read stories to little nursery kids that are sitting on his lap, making breakfast for dinner almost every wed. night, ect. ect. there are so many things i can't list them all those are the ones just off the top of my head :0) Sorry i couln't find an old wedding pic to post on this computer! Happy Anniversary Curt... I love you!!!
For Papa/Gramps 1 year anniversary Auntie LuLu was in town and bought a whole bunch of balloons for family to let one go!!! Uncle Jeff had put his favorite near beer on the grave and Braxton and Parker thought it was funny so i took some pics with it!! Kambree loved seeing the balloons fly up to Papa!!! We miss him terribly but am so gratefull to have had so many wonderfull years with truely the most amazing man around!!! He made each of his grandkids and greatgrandkids feel like they were his favorite!!! He loved everyone no matter there background!! He was a great example to us and can't wait for the day that we get to see him again :0)
yesterday he finally had surgery on his foot that has been killing him for ALONG time now!!! We got there checked in paid our copay, talked with a nurse about his current medications and signed informed consents, changed into the infamous gown and cap, the nurse came back to start his I.V. and told us the anesthiesiologist will be in and the Dr. Curts fear was that he would wake up in the middle of the surgery and feel pain but not be able to speak. The Anesth. Dr. said don't worry we will have you in a deep sleep and your Dr. will numb the arch of his foot really good and to not worry about that. Then the Dr. came in and marked the left foot with an arrow and a yes on it. They weeled him back and said it would be about 45 min. then they would come get me. They were right and he was awake and alert but still groggy when they brought me back to recovery Drinking a diet coke :0). We didn't stay there long before I got him dressed and the boot on and we were gone. He did o.k. at home just tired and was still numbed. He thought by taking his ambien and a pain pill he would hopefully sleep all thru the night but not so much... He hobble into the bathroom at least twice with the crutches(thank you nana for letting us borrow them). When he woke up at 6;30 a.m. he was in alot of pain!!! Up until then it was managable (pain) with only one pill every 4 hours. He is hurting so bad tough today he will take 2 every 6hrs. We know the first couple days are the worst so just pray we can get thru this :0) I feel so bad for him and really hope after it is healed the pain is gone!!!!
I have been hating the muffin top and belly buldge for along time now.... I have decided i am going to do something about it ( i would love to just go get lyposuction but that is just not in the budget) !!! I have been in awe of runners lately... i have never wanted too run but i do like walking and am have finally told myself do it!!! So today i got on the dreaded scale and it really is not that bad just that i don't like how i look in certain areas of my body so i am starting to count my calories and be more aware of how many useless calories i am eating on just snacks and pop. I dont want to totally cut everything out but moderate it better then i all ready am. I excersiced for a 1/2 hour and plan to start walking at least 3 times a week and who knows maybe if i decide to move the treadmill downstairs will get up to a jog and MAYBE one day get into running. I hope i can do it!!!!
Just So gratefull for a husband who adores and works very hard for our family!! It makes me fall in love with him every time i see him struggling with something but he continues to do what it takes for us!!!!! We lost the best father figure in both of our lives that was such a strong fatherly support this year and it has been tough!! very glad we had him to love and support us in so many ways for as long as we did but it is still tough!!!! Curts plantar facitis(sp) has been killing him for along time now and just yesterday at a family BBQ he promised the boys last time we were there that he would play basketball with them and sure enough they reminded him and even with all the pain he is in he went out. We made great family memories going to Disneyland in March with his foot still hurting mind you. He had tried everything the Dr. has suggested and i'm afraid were probably looking at surgery. Not what we want but nothing is helping and he is tired of the pain and not being able to play with the kids and just do normal things with them like he wants. I admire his strength to just keep swimming. It is not easy!!!! I love you Curt.
Curt really likes hamburgers but neither of the boys do and so he has always wanted a child that would say lets go get a burger and he got one..... alls she has to say is "hamburger daddy" and he gets her one when i am at work(hence her hair not being done either in these pics).
The next few pics (also that daddy took so no hair done that day either) are of muncher #1 and #2..... Kambree gets her own cause Parker doesn't really like sharing with her when she licks them and puts them back.LOL
We had a great time even though there were tons of people.... the boys were very patient to let there lil sis get to meet and take pics with Mickey and Minnie... It does cost a small fortune to go there but the memories we have made with the kids are priceless.
Curt and I have been married for 18 years.... We have 2 sons and Finally a baby girl... Braxton is 16, Parker 12 and Kambree 3.
Curt works up at Hill Air Force base as a contractor and I am a part-time dental assistant, full time mom and wife.
