Porters New Pictures

I know I haven't blogged in awhile (cough cough Ashley). We've been very busy. My beautiful nephew Porter recently had his 7 month pictures taken. Mikail hasn't ever used this photographer so we didn't quite know what to expect. Porter has a tendancy to not like photographers! But Caralee did an AMAZING job. I can't believe how she capture his personalty with just a few shots!! She's absolutely amazing!

Breast Cancer

In early January my mom Lisa felt a lump about 2 inches under her collarbone. She showed my dad like "look how strange" just in passing. My dad then felt it and immediately thought it was something to worry about.
So the next day my dad had a doctor at his office write a referral. 2 weeks after she felt a "bump, that was nothing to worry about" she went into surgery for a lumpectomy (which is when they just take out the lump) So now she has to go though 3 months of Chemo. after that Radiation for about 3 months everyday.
So today she texts me saying "my hair is FALLING out, lets go get a wig" my mother always the go-get-er! she thought heck my hairs falling out lets just shave it a buy a wig! So on her lunch hour we went and tried on wigs! It had to be the funniest moment ever when she tried on a platinum blonde long curly wig! Needless to say we bought a great looking one! When we got home my very sweet husband shaved her hair for her! So moral of the blog/story CHECK for breast cancer. And make sure you get a second opinion, because something you don't think is a big deal could be!

Caitlyn's almost last dance:(

My baby sister Caitlyn is 17 and graduating from high school this year! It's absolutely crazy how fast we grow up! I was looking at a VERY old scrapbook a little while ago, and saw a whole bunch of pictures from about 12 years ago, the 3 of us girls were so young. Now my little dirt eater is a almost grown up beautiful almost woman.. well you mite be asking what brought all this on... Cait went to her 2nd to last dance has a high school student. She looked so dang cute. (Who ever dressed her and did her hair is just a mastermind!) I dont know what im going to do when she goes away to college. I call her 3 times a day now! Oh jeez poor girl won't get any time to her self... actually maybe I'll talk Brad into moving where she goes! :)

Brad and Porter

So i had Port the other day. I knew the poor guy was just exhausted. So i tried EVERYTHING. I rocked i swayed, i bounced, i fed him. But the little bugger just wouldn't stop yelling. About 2 seconds before i started crying because i felt so bad that i couldn't just help him go to sleep. Brad took him from me, and no joke within 10 seconds Porter was completely asleep. JEEZ!! So whenever Brad holds Port he thinks its nap time. Thank Goodness for husbands!!
