One Tooth

Well, many of you already know, but we had a serious accident at our house. Colt (sometimes known as Crash) tumbled down the stairs last Thursday. I saw him hit his head on the hardwood floor and when I picked him up he had a mouth full of blood. I was home alone with the kids because Jason is in Pocatello all week so I picked up my phone and called him. I told him what happened and that Colt's upper right tooth looked like a buck tooth. Jason got off the phone with me and called a few dentists (we ONLY have about 8 in our ward) and they all said that it would be fine. I didn't think so but I went along with the verdict. When Jason got home on Friday night he couldn't believe how bad his tooth looked. It was poking out at a 45 degree angle and it made his lip stick out as well. We called another dentist and he said that either his tooth was broken or we were going to have to push it back into place. Saturday morning Jason took Colt to the dentist for x-rays was broken and had to be pulled. So my sweet baby boy only has one front tooth now. I think it has been harder on me than on Colt- he is a little trooper. He still can't eat pickles (or any food for that matter) like he used to but overall he is doing well. And hey, it will only be 5 or 6 years til his upper right tooth returns. :)

A Trampoline!

If anyone asked Jadyn what she wanted for Christmas, she would reply, "A trampoline." We didn't think it would be wise of Santa to bring a tramp since we are moving and it is freezing outside. Well, when we visited my parents over the New Year they bought Jadyn her very own small trampoline. Both the girls love it. They pull it out everyday and jump-jump-jump!
Here they are catching some air!

Somedays we refer to Jadyn as a jumping bean because she will jump all day long everywhere she goes. As you can see in the picture- she really can jump!!

Sneaky Girls

Last Friday the girls and I were getting ready for Jason to come home. I was cleaning house, changing sheets, baking cinnamon rolls, and doing a million other things so we could just relax over the weekend when Jason got here. I went upstairs and found the girls making a disaster with their toys so I decided I would keep them busy and give them some jobs/chores to do instead. I asked Hallee and Jadyn to get their sheets out of the dryer and bring them upstairs so we could make the beds. After about 5 minutes I knew they had gotten side tracked so I went to see what other trouble they were into. I walked into the Laundry Room and found the sheets on the floor and the dryer door cracked open. This is what was inside:
They thought they were so dang cute (and it was) but now they want to play in the dryer everyday- which I won't allow!! They are 2 very sneaky girls (Jadyn is looking at this picture and busting up). I can't wait til it is warm again and they can play outside rather than inside a dryer!!

Colt had a Birthday- Shout Hooray!!

On December 28th Colt had his 1st Birthday!! We had a party at our house a day early since we were headed to Pocatello on the 28th.

Colt's Puppy Birthday Cake.

Here is Colt about to dig into his piece- the puppy's paw.

Colt after he destroyed his cupcake. He didn't eat much but he sure can make a mess!

Colt has been so much fun to have in our family. He is just taking his first steps and starting to talk a lot more. He can say mama, dada, hat, Tag (or dog- not sure about that one), and Grandpa. He loves to play peek a boo and to take everything out of the cabinets. His favorite thing to eat is a pickle and he LOVES to play with phones (I can thank Colt that my cell phone is broken at the moment). He likes to follow his sisters around the house and they really like to have him around too. Having a boy has been a lot different than a little girl. He is not very 'huggy' and 'kissy', he loves to make noise, and to get into things he shouldn't. Colt is an adventure for me everyday!

As I mentioned before, we traveled to Pocatello on Colt's birthday. I-86 into Pocatello was closed when we got there and we spent about 5 hrs in Burley sitting in the car, wandering around the Walmart and finally relaxing at Jason's Aunts' house. What a birthday!! We celebrated with a combined party the following day for Colt and my Dad (Colt was born on his Grandpa's Birthday). We are so thankful to have Colt in our family and cannot believe that he is 1!!

Here are the 2 birthday boys- Colt and Grandpa Kelly.
