CHESTER AND POOP

something we do, we talk about our future kids names. i think most people do right? yeah im not going to say any tho because of name stealers, but i will tell you something funny. tonight beaus sitting there watching scarred. you know that crazy show that plays all the nutso skateboarders gettin hurt jumping off rales and stuff (yeah we love this show) and beau goes "what do you think of the name chester for a boy?" and im like ..................................pause.......pause.........................think..........think...........think....................and then im like "are you FREEKING kiddin me babe?" and hes all "why???" and im like..........."um chester the molester" and then were both dying of laughter. its been a strange few weeks thats for sure!!! we finally got a few gifts bought for the people who matter most! moms and dads grannies and grandpas. but so far we havent bought much else. we are so blessed! we dont need a thing! sereously, we have enough crap as it is right?? arden got spoiled on her birthday, and has way more then most kids, so were being chill this year. yes dont creme your jeans santa is comming for arden, but were not going nuts on shopping the way we have in the past. this has been such a good month for us because were not worried about things that dont matter, like stuff!! its like "oh lets get summore stuff to fill our house, we need more stuff to waist our money on" sereously my heros are the couple who lived off of 30 dollars each for a month. YOU ARE AMAZING!! if the world had more people like you it would be a better place.
K so arden just got over the worst and weirdest sickness yet! have you herd of the roatavirus? its freeking disgusting. last week we were home every single day holding a bowl for her to puke in. or changing 18 butt urine diapers a day! it felt like we had a new born again because we changed diapers all through the night for days. she refused to eat, so we forced pedia light down her throat with a syringe. that and pedialight popcicles homemade with an ice tray and straws. thank you pedialight!! if it werent for this godsend, she would have been in the hospital with an IV. on the eighth day of the sickness i changed her diaper and found a teeny tiney little log! halayleuya! i started jumping up and down screaming " yeay baby you pooped a log yeay arde!!" and she goes "a frog?ribit ribit" so cute. i'd forgotten all about the frog thing when i went to change her again and i find another quote, "good poop" (only moms will understand this) and i yell "beau she did another log" thats when my little brown eyed sweetie pie looks up and says "yeay ribit!" what an angel. all along thinking i found frogs in her diaper. love it love it. im just glad i have my baby back. tonight shes unwraped the grandparents christmas presents and is currently begging for pizza because she snubbed her dinner. its pizza or "APPLE PIE!" she begs for. weird, she has never had apple pie. ok im done, goodnight moon, brushems teeth, an nurney are calling. good night.

em! i love that you aren't going all out this year. i feel the same way about stuff. it's better to not get so focused on getting more and more. i'm glad arden is feeling better. (and to answer your question on my blog, i'm doing good. going to canada for christmas and going to freeze my butt off. lame-o, but i love my hubby so i go.)

hi guys-it's your favorite new neighbors! love the blog~even though blogging is sooo lame :). so glad arden is feeling better (and that she wasn't in nursery to pass it on! ha ha). okay, so maybe chester isn't the best name, but if you think of anything else, pass them along--we're gonna have to come up with a name for this baby of ours sometime!

Ditto on the whole Christmas thing. We are cutting way back and you know what, I am happier because of it. SO who lived off 30 bucks a month?? That is crazy and awesome!! Roscoe has just gotten over that same sickness. He had a fever and cough along with the puking and diarrhea. I so hear you on jumping for joy when you see the blessed log. Frog? Arden is a BABE!!

The Dahlke Family said...

Hey, Kevin mentioned something about Jessica having a New Year's party... are u guys going to that? Maybe we could get in on the fun...

Love where your head is at Emily. We are doing the same thing. I'm glad Arden is better. Having a sick kid is one of the worst feelings ever. YOu want to take away their illness and pass it on to yourself instead. Love ya babe. xoxox P.S I can see where Beau was going with Chester.

Becky said...
