Tubes(again!) for B!

Last May, Brooks got tubes in his ears. About 6 months or so ago one of the tubes started making it’s way out and he started having problems again. If you’ve never had a child with ear infections well, they are horrible. And now that he can talk he would say, “eah hut.” Talk about hurting my heart! Pitiful! Over the last 5 weeks he was on 3 different antibiotics to treat ear infections, none of which cleared them up. Back to the ENT we went and got tubes the very next day!

Here we are before they took him back. It was not as easy this time as it was the first time. Mainly because he is a year older! When we were in the holding area the nurses desk was directly in front of his bed and it had a box of doughnuts on it. He recognized the Krispy Kreme box quickly and kept saying, “Nonut PEEZE.”


He’s used to eating way earlier and was so hungry! I felt so bad.


He was more ill when waking up this time around, which we expected. After we were discharged, I got him something to eat and we headed home where he took a THREE hour nap! He woke up feeling fabulous and we went to eat at Taco Casa before Peyton’s ballgame!


So glad he’s feeling better!

A few weeks ago our sweet Roxy passed away. When the vet called to tell me she didn’t make it all I could do was cry. To the point that the lady on the phone was like, “I am SO SO SO sorry. Just call us back. ”  20141024_171700_resized

It was bad.

She escaped from the goat yard the day before-she and Foxy have NEVER escaped-and one of our dogs attacked her. A stray that we had taken in. He had also killed several chickens. He is no longer an issue. That’s all I know about that.

Our entire household was sad. We haven’t found another goat yet but we are on the lookout for sure! Goats do not like to be alone so we need to find Foxy a friend SOON! 20141004_133615_resized

However, we DID get new baby chicks!IMG_20150209_162911

And a few days later….baby DUCKS!!!!! EEEKKKK!IMG_20150214_164302The ducks make us SMILE! They waddle around with all their little ducky cuteness! 

Welcome to the farm! :)

Peyton’s Paintball Party!

This could also be titled Peyton’s Second Annual Paintball Party! :)

We had Peyton’s party a few weekends ago at Paintball Is Good! The kids had a blast again this year! Even our four year old nephew played and had a blast! I don’t have a lot of pictures of them playing because it’s hard to get pictures while they are playing, it was COLD…very cold and we were also chasing around a one year old.


Some of our paintballers!DSC_1698Supervising…DSC_1690

B’s First Haircut!

A few weeks ago we decided it was time for Brooks’ first hair cut! We really didn’t want to cut it because it was so cute and super curly but it was thin on top and it wasn’t going to thicken up until we cut it! So, a haircut it was!IMG_20150105_153839_resized
