Christmas 2009

So how was everyone Christmas? This year Izabel got several things. She got little people plane, Little people Christmas set and little drummer boy set. Grandma got her the Little People Animal town center. She didn't have any the Animal sets yet.

She got Baby Doll my little pony and you can feed it and it sings and talk to her and she loves it. She got the pony from her aunt and uncle. She got Tickle Me Elmo hands and clothes from her Great Aunt on her dads side. From her other Grandma on my side the family Izabel got a Fridge Phonics to learn her ABC. She got a Sesame Street Clean up set from Santa. She also got Ernie from Sesame Street in her stocking. I think for a girl who almost 2 years old she did really well. Soon we have a birthday coming up.

Christmas more for the kids then the adults but we did get a few things as well, but I wont bore ya with the details on that one.

Merry Christmas and Happy New year.

House Repairs for 2010

Here is our 2010 list of house repairs that we want to do next.

1. Get insulation for the Craw Space
2. Replace the Front Door, The Back door, and the door going to the Garage. (who ever put the door on pur them on wrong. Well they are a two finger gap between the top and bottom and air come though. Not alot of air bit if you are staning by the door you can feel the cold)
3. Replace the carpet in the living room and hall way.
4. Paint the trim on the house to match the window color.

Windows Updates

Windows are in and look so good. The heater has come on less then before. That will save on are Gas bill starting next month. The Windows are nice and thick. I would recomend champion windows to anyone who needs new windows or a compmany that dose similar windows if there not in your area.

Sitting Down

Ive been trying for while now to get Izabel to sit on the coach or even try to climb on it. I have come to the conclusion that she thinks it to high up. What made me aware was I was playing with her and she sat down on me like you would a chair or a stole down at her level. So I think for Christmas we might get Izabel a princess chair. Daddy doesn't just want to get her any chair but one her size that look like one the chairs you see in the living room. Like a recliner or love seat chair. Travis found a couple on Walmart's website.

If she would sit in her chair when watching her 1 movie a night (basically only time I let her watch TV unless I sneak in Handy Manny) We do have Hanny Manny on DVD so she watch that at her movie time. She is good at playing in her room. She loves it unless she get tired that when we have movie time. She even picks out what she watches. We cut her TV time way down. I cant wait till Savannah and Aspen are older to play with her. Right now only kids her age we know are 2 boys and she doesn't see them very often. She dose love to play by herself. She learned how to say go away. Though not nice to say, she did say it to me when she didn't want to play with me anymore and wanted to play by herself. She so cute when she trys to talk. Gotta listen to her very careful as she doesn't say it very loud.

Climb on daddy.

Izabel has deiced that if Daddy laying on the ground she can climb on him. She used the playard and climb on top of daddy and just stood there for the longest time. Luckily she didn't fall over.
Now with me she uses me as a horsey, as I was laying on my side not my back like daddy so she couldn't stand on me. Could be as a horsey or like she getting on her scooter. She is getting so adventurous.

Friday, November 6, 2009

Halloween 2009

I didn't get any pictures, but had fun. Besides you've already seen her costume. We took Izabel over to her aunt and uncles house and went trick or treating. I had the stroller just in case she need it. She wanted to walk with the big kids. she made it down the street and over to the next street before her little feet got tired and we had to go back. She doesn't talk allot but at a few houses she would say thank you after I said thank you. She couldn't get Trick or Treat out though. It was fun. She loved the light up pumpkins people had on the porch and tried to play with them. She even tried to go in few peoples houses. The group kept saying in the rear here comes the bee, was so funny. There would be Izabel walking her walk. She tried so hard to follow daddy and keep up with the kids. It was so cute. She's never walked that far. Normally she stops and try's to play in the dirt, grass or any ting she sees on the ground. Happy Halloween 2009

Just one those days. Reading a friend blog I started thinking my cat. I had her for 9 years. I miss her everyday but had to be done. She wasnt kid friendly. When Izabel was a baby she was ok with it. Once Izabel started walking around and could chase her she didnt like it. She would hiss at her. She has attack Travis before, but that was right after I moved her from Oregon to Colorado. Once she was here she got better. I couldnt take the chance of her hissing or attacking my sweet Izabel. She a pretty good cat when not around kids. So when we couldnt find a home, had to take to place for cats. They said they try to find her ahome with no kids. WIth her being 9 years old there no promise. Shadow I will always love you and I miss. May god be with you and remember mommie loves you.

Saturday, October 24, 2009


I just weighed Izabel today which was a big chore. She doesn't like to be picked up allot. Especially when she's got it in her head that I can run around the house. I am free mommy I am free, is what she is saying to herself. She's like her daddy in the fact that she doesn't like to sit for very long. He's a always walking around are tiny house. Anyway Izabel is 23.5lbs today. She get her official weight in 3months on her 2 year check up.

Prices of Stuff.

Hmm we don't need to replace it yet. But anyone know were to get a tankless water heater and the prices. Now when we go to the new windows next year, hubby wants ones that block out UV or the sun. One the things that heats up this house so much. Need to find out where to get windows and how much that will be.

We already got one more thing off our list. Since the Holidays are comming and we get lots of turkeys and hams when on sale, hubby got a bran new freezer.

P.S. Hubby Decied since we were losing to much heat out the windows to doth the windows first then the water heater.

House Repairs

Well The roof is finely fixed 4k fixed. We Picked Desert Tan as the roof color. Husband like that color cause we can do almost any ting we like to the outside the house and it will go together. Next it to get the water line fixed on the fridge so it will make ice and get a new garbage disposal. Then after that we gotta save up for new windows.Probley wont be till Tax season time for the new Windows. I want windows that will block some the sun coming in the house and has new screens. The house heats up pretty fast. We where going to get windows first, but the roof started leaking and that changed all our planes. What done is done but now it is fixed. Sure fun owning a house.

When it rains it poors!!!!!

Lets see what happens since we moved in Nov.
The Battery died in Travis pickup and the windshield is cracked. We were hit by a car on Christmas day. My tooth brook and I had to be fixed. Travis hand was broke in many places. He was put on light duty for 1-2 months at work. Travis had to have 3 teeth pulled. Lucky are dental insurance paid for that. But wouldn't pay for my tooth after the care wreck.
Our medical Insurance company deiced after 15 months to bill me for Izabel birth instead of pay for it. So we been fighting them to get the primary and the secondary insurance to pay for her birth. Make me wonder how people have 18 kids.
The Roof started leaking over the heater vent pipping area. SO now it going to cost 4K to get the roof fixed. There is wind and hail damage on the roof and 2 layers and boards have to be taken up.
The Car we got to replace the car that was recked on Christmas day deiced to stop running today. We had to have it towed today. Since it the weekend, it will be Monday before anyone even looks at the car. I hope it still under warnetey. Looks like all 3 of use wont be going anyway, as the pick only fits 2 people. We then had to go get a battery for our old pickup another 100+ dollars, just so my husband can get to work.
I hope and pray that nothing else goes wrong this year. Other then that we are alive. I hope 2010 is better then 2009.

Izabel walking

The first time Izabel took some real steps was at grandma house but didnt get the camara out. Next time she took some steps I got a video of it. It short and sweet. Hope you enjoy it.

Thursday, May 14, 2009

Just few Steps

I know it not alot but Izabel walked from side of her playard to the yard other side of the playard before falling. Well Ok she only walked halfway. The doctor said she shy and afriad to walk. Meaning that she can walk if she wants just wont. Well everyday she getting more and more brave. When she seems me watching her standing there not holding on she get very shy. SHe will either grab hold of something or fall on her butt. So when she walked and then fell, I claped my hands and she claped to let her know she did a good job and I was proud of her.

Second Mothers day

Sunday will Be my second mothers day with you Izabel. It cant belive you are almost 16 months old and trying to walk. I know you don't walk on your own yet but you get around pretty good while holding on to something like your walk. I cant wait for the day you are walking on your own. Every second with you is a blessing. I am so blessed that you came in to my world. Izabel I love you more then words can say. You are the queen of my heart.
You know 5 words now, but sometimes all you will say is Dada and you think it funny to call me dada when dada in the room. Its actually kind of cute that you think eveyrting is dada.
Its funny when your eatting and you dont want anymore food and you make this scrunch up face as to say I dont want any more. Or if you know your suppose to eat a certain amount of your food of your tray you will hide it behind your back/butt. I always check there so you don't get away with that one.

Izabel you are just one smart cookie. I love you very much. More then you can ever Imagen. I promise to allways love you and protect you, each and every day. When you fall down I willbe there to pick you and hold you. Not for very long as you don't like to be held for long. I just want to say Thank you Izabel for making me your mommie.

4-21-09 15 month Check up

Izabel had her 15 month check up yesterday. She is still on the small side but growing. She is 19 lbs 7 oz and 29 1/2 inches long. She grew 2 inches and 2 pounds since her 12 month check up. Remember she was 4 pounds 11 oz at birth. now almost 20 pounds.Way to go Bell.

She officially on whole milk but with a twist. She gets add formula till it till all the formula in the house is gone. Doctor said to mix it with the whole milk for extra calories for when she doesn't want to eat table food from me or by herself.
She showed the doctor that she can stand up by herself and walk around a table if holding on to it. She even let go for a second. Once she realized she was standing up not holding on to anything she fell to her butt. She can walk if using the walker or the playyard at home. She just wont do it on her own yet. She just playing it safe the doctor says. She showed the doctor that she can do High 5 with Daddy when she not playing shy. Still trying to get her to point to more then her Tootsie or her noise but I guess that will come in time. She can say about 5 words now. I guess for a girl born 6-8 weeks early she is doing good.

P.s. I need to get a scale at home and a height chart...

I was thinking since Izabel room is Pink with Brown trim that this dresser would look nice in her room. What do you think?

Still need to get a picture of her room when it totaly done. One these days I will update it totaly done. I am slow at putting a room together. I feel like I need to apply to one those HGTV shows to get someone to come out and customize Izabel room for me. I always have these ideas that I want to do but never have the time or money or the know how to put it together. Then there are people like my friend Jessica who 6 months pregenet and already got a whole theme room done for her daugther to me. I cant wait to see it.

Snow 09

Good day to stay home and do nothing. Snow Snow Snow. Its snowing and they might close the airprot for the night. Even if they close the roads, but don't close the airport my husband will have to go to work in the morning. I know suchs but that the way it is.
Right now my brother n law is stuck in Vegas. Seens with the snow he and his new wife Can't get a flight home. They had one for midnightm but we had them change it and now that flight they changed it to might be be closed. They finaly got a flight out of Vegas 6 hours later. Now they are in Denvor and the friend they had to come pick them up can come cause the roads are closed. Well not total closed but the Govenor has said that if you can stay at home please do so. There already been some accidents from Denvor to Colorado Springs.
We found one flight from Denvor to Colorado springs but it is all full. So now they can either try to rent a car and try to drive home or stay at the airport. It suchs to be so close to home and not able to get home.
Same thing happen to use in Decemeber but it wasnt snow that delayed are flight from Denvor to the Springs. IT was the high winds. Trust me the plane ride to the springs wasnt a plesent ride either. I almost got sick. I get motion sickness. Well to a point. It why I cant go on the fast rollercosters. I did that once and wasnt a pretty site.

On the bright side my new blue ray came int he mail today. Ive been watching twlight. Not a bad movie if you like vampires and highschool romance movies.

So that they first big snow storm of 09

Izabel wouldnt sleep last night and not eatting much. She has a 100 fever, and I wonder why. Finaly she let me have a look in her mouth. She is geting a thrid top tooth. The second on the right hand side. It sure does hurt. She is crabby.
It still didnt stop me from going to the Eye Doctors. I havent gone in awhile and need new perscription. I couldnt find anew pair of regualr glasses I like so I had the new perscription put in my spair pair. I also got a pair of perscription sunglasses. Now I can with out being blinded by the sun.
Lucky we have family that can watch Izabel when we need too. We where there watiing till 3pm. Didnt get to the funuriture store to get Izabel Dresser. I guess that will have to wait another week. Oh fun. We only been trying since her brithday to get her dresser. She needs one so badly. Tired of her cloths siting at the bottom of her closet. She will be 14 months on saturday. She geting so big.

Tuesday, March 3, 2009


I cant wait for the warm weather. I have some pink and brown paint to put up on the walls. We bought the paint for Izabel room, but every time we want to paint we been busy or the car accident or it been to cold to open the window. Today it was 60+ but by the time it was warm enough to open her window Izabel need her nap. She been fussy if she doesn't get her nap. Then she get fussy if we lay her down. All she wants to do is crawl and try to grab on to things and try to stand up. We had to get a new entertainment system. The one we had had to many sharp uneven corners and she kept running in to them. The one got is oval Sharp and wood. It round so no sharp edges and nothing sticking out. It four shelves. Now it a lighter wood then the colors in my living room, but it brown. The walls in the living room are a light blue the curtains are blue and brown. The chair is blue and brown and coach is brown. So I guess it all matches.

Monday, February 16, 2009


We bought this house in december and it came with no fride,stove or washer and driver. Lucky we had are own fridge from the place we use to live at. So the next step was getting what we could afford at the time, which was a stove. I got my cook top stove. Hubby wanted a gas stove but no gas Line in kitchen yet.

Fianly are Taxes came in. Hubby and I were getting tired of everyweek trucking are clothes to his parents house to wash them. I said no more and he agreed so he bought me something. Ive been wanting a top loader for awhile now. Plus it HE and uses less water and soap so that will help. Plus with a 1 year old you need a washer and dryer. She likes to get dirty. She learned oh a cookie or a cop cake I can squish it and then run my hands all over my clothes.

Remember if you buy a HE/energy star washer and dryer to call your electric company they can give you a rebeate. The rebeat may only be 50-75 dollars but every dollar helps.They give rebeats on many Energy star stuff so check there website out

Guess How Much I love you

Little Nutbrown Hare, who was going to bed, held on tight to Big Nutbrown Hare's very long ears. He wanted to be sure that Big Nutbrown Hare was listening.

"Guess how much I love you," he said.

"Oh, I don't think I could guess that," said Big Nutbrown Hare.

"This much," said Little Nutbrown Hare, stretching out his arms as wide as they could go.

Big Nutbrown Hare had even longer arms. "But I love YOU this much," he said.

Hmm, that is a lot, thought Little Nutbrown Hare.

"I love you as high as I can reach." said Little Nutbrown Hare.

"I love you as high as I can reach," said Big Nutbrown Hare.

That is quite high, thought Little Nutbrown Hare. I wish I had arms like that.

Then Little Nutbrown Hare had a good idea. He tumbled upside down and reached up the tree trunk with his feet.

"I love you all the way up to my toes!" he said.

"And I love you all the way up to your toes," said Big Nutbrown Hare, swinging him up over his head.

"I love you as high as I can HOP!" laughed Little Nutbrown Hare, bouncing up and down.

"But I love you as high as I can hop," smiled Big Nutbrown Hare - and he hopped so high that his ears touched the branches above.

That's good hopping, thought Little Nutbrown Hare. I wish I could hop like that.

"I love you all the way down the lane as far as the river," cried Little Nutbrown Hare.

"I love you across the river and over the hills," said Big Nutbrown Hare.

That's very far, thought Little Nutbrown Hare. He was almost too sleepy to think any more. Then he looked beyond the thorn bushes, out into the big dark night. Nothing could be further than the sky.

"I love you right up to the MOON," he said, and closed his eyes.

"Oh, that's far," said Big Nutbrown Hare. "That is very, very far."

Big Nutbrown Hare settled Little Nutbrown Hare into his bed of leaves. He leaned over and kissed him good night.

Then he lay down close by and whispered with a smile, "I love you right up to the moon - AND BACK."

Going to be an aunt again.

Well All of Izabel cousions are older then her. youngest is Jaconb at 5 1/2 and then Mayklan at 6 1/2 . Then there Chase at 13 Airel at 15 1/2 and Aurora at 17. So Izabel dosnt realy have anyone to play with her. Today we got some news. My hsuabnd brother's wife to be is having a baby. Izabel will have a family member around her age to play with.

It makes me wonder if I should have one more. Right now Izabel is an only child. Even though we can spoil her rotten, I wonder if she is missing out not having a brother or sister. We live in a small 3 bedroom house. So, If we had a girl we could try to put them in the same room. If we had a boy my husband would have to add on to the house or give up his office.

I grew up with 3 sisters. Not really though they lives with either there dad or there mom. They were half sisters. My mom was never home so I kinda felt lonely having to do things on my own. Izabel wont have that as I am a stay at home mom. Still i wonder if it will be better to give her a sibling. Also there the cost of having a baby. 40k for my c section. There lots to think about.
I am 31 almost 32 and Travis is 38 almost 39 does he realy want anther one. If we do this would be our last one.

Our new car

2007 suzuki xl7 luxury edition
Comes with a DVD player, Heated Seats, MP3 Player and hooks ups in the back for game systems. We didnt set out to get a luxury edition of a car , but that was what was on the car lot in our price range. I wanted something 2007 or higher and low milles on it. We couldn't pass it up. I always wanted to put a Dvd player in our other car for when Izabel was older anyway so it worked out great. My husband loves the remote start. When he get ready for work he starts the car and by the time he get out there its all nice and warm.

It sure has been a crazy few weeks. My glasses were broken in the wreck so I am weaning my spare glasses till I can go to the doctor to get a new pair. I've been fighting an infection. When the airbag hit my face it caused one of my teeth in my mouth to get infected. It didn't happen right away. Well It did but I didn't show signs of it. I had to have a Root cancel and a tooth fixed. Yeah for Insurance. With out medical and dental insurance we be in a world of trouble. I don't like going to the dentist but it was an emergency my face swelled up and I had to get a prescription to take the swelling down. So Friday I had the root canal and the dentist isn't done yet. That was just clean out the tooth and the root and add medicine to the root so it can heal.

Did I tell you guys that Travis hand is broken in 5 places. Well He is now in a cast and hates it. On monday he goes to the doctors again. His cast was put on while his hand was swollen so we are wondering if they are goign to give him a new one after they check his hand or wait. If it dosn't heal right in 2 more weeks he will have to have surgery. I just hope if does have to have surgery that he dosn't have to have any time off work.

I don't want him to have to fight an insurance company to pay for his time off work.

It bad enough that are inruance company had to pay our car out since it was totaled and they bill the other inruance company that hit us. They didn't want to give us the full value of the car. They said are car wanst worth 15k when our insruance company said it was.

So we have had one thing after another it been pretty bussy here.
