Happy Mother's Day, Except ER Trip

Seriously, what is wrong with me and holidays? You read about Easter...so let's just have a go at Mother's Day...

All started off well, we were only 5 minutes late to church. Pretty good, seeing how we didn't get up until 8:30 (church starts at 9am). Travis spoke in a branch 2 hrs. north, so he wasn't with us. From the ward we got Bath Salts and Chocolate. We (my YW) put them together at mutual on Wednesday. After Church, Trouble was being...well...trouble and he was playing the run-away-from-mom game. Finally I got him in the van and he decided to climb over the back bench seat into the way back of the van...yes very funny...ha ha...NOW get in your seat so we can go. So I get him from the back, put him back in the van and he proceeds to climb back over the seat again. But I already have a hold of his wrist as he falls over the seat, with me still holding him and pulling him toward me. He bursts out in tears. I thought he'd fallen on something in the back. So he 'seemed' okay. So I put him in his seat and I lecture him on how we get hurt when we don't do what Mommy says. We drive home and by now he's screaming in pain. Yeah, I'm starting to feel real bad...maybe I did really hurt him?!? Travis is already home, so we drive up to the hospital (yes our third ER visit in 3 years). They take an X-ray, nothing broken...thank goodness. He has the classic 'Nursemaids Elbow' basically the elbow popped out of place. The PA popped him back in place and within minutes he was fine. Apparently, it is very common so the hospital isn't reporting me to Child Services. I felt horrible, but he's fine. When we got home Travis cooked up some Balsamic Vinegar Chicken and Steak and Potato Kabobs. We had chocolate and went to bed. So despite the hour ER visit Mother's day went well. So maybe Trouble will think twice before not getting me a mother's day gift next year...bwahaha!!

Trouble...doing just fine despite his mother's abuse.

My gift, a body pillow. I think I've been taking about getting one since Trouble's prenancy, but never went and got one. Travis catches on easily and got me one for Mother's day. What a great guy!!

Preggo Me

Lets just say that I've almost gained as much now as I did my entire pregnancy with Dynomite. I can't help it if the baby like donuts!!

The Newest Addition to our Family

A few weeks ago our friend Kelly brought us one of her baby chinchillas. What is a chinchilla, you say? It is from the rodent family and found mainly in the Andes Mountains. They are the size of a guinea pig, but super soft. They bathe is special dust and eat rabbit type food. We've had chinchillas before and liked them. We can let him out and he run and plays. He doesn't run and hide like other rodents. He also doesn't bite. His name is Rocky. Dynomite loves him!! She takes to him and squeals every morning she sees him. He's easy maintenance. The only thing I really have to watch out for is the kiddos like to let him out of his cage!!

Fun With Bubbles

We have a bubble machine. The kids love it.

This is fishy-faced Dynomite.

This is Trouble telling the bubble what to do!

Corelle can be broken

Yes, I've done it again. This is my third Corelle I've broken in less than 6 months. Don't ask how, or why. Trouble sang me a song shortly after my 'incident' (he often makes up his own songs):
Breaker, Breaker
Mommy is a breaker.
That is why there is no
glass in the house.
Breaker, Breaker
Mommy is a breaker.
