I just don't know what to do!!

So, Wes and I split our tax return this year.. I paid off bills, and he put his half towards a motorcycle.. I know he is a good rider and not a stupid one, but other BIG cars and trucks driving by him is what I'm worried about. Well, he has now changed his mind.. He wants to go back to Europe. I just don't know. He said this will probably be our last chance for a really long time, because we are talking about having another baby in the next couple years, so with three kids at home, we wouldn't be able to make the trip!

Here's the kicker though.. He wants to go for TWO weeks. I just don't know if I can leave my babies for that long!!!! I know we could call and face time, but I've never been away from them for that long! And, all the traveling around, catching trains, etc.. I don't know if I want to deal with it!! He wants to start in Prague, go to Vienna, then travel around Italy. Looking at all the reservations we would need to make for trains stresses me out! AHHHH!!! Plus, on top of the eurail passes, we would have to pay reservation fees for a bunch of the trains, so the cost is adding up fast! And, that doesn't even include food, hotels, admission into places, souvenirs, etc! Any thoughts?

Where did the teeth go?!?!

So, Katrina is a little toothless wonder! :) She has lost SIX teeth!! Here are the stories of teeth #5 and #6...

Tooth #5 (8-2-10)... This tooth was DISGUSTING!!! I mean, it was so loose, that the BACK of the tooth is what you could see when she smiled! And, she ate like that! It kinda freaked me out! Lol.. I could just imagine how it felt! Well, we were going to Roaring Springs, and I said hopefully she wouldn't lose it in a pool... She didn't want that, so she went after that tooth! Wiggled, twisted, pulled, you name it! She tried using a flosser like one of her bottom ones, but couldn't figure out how to do it on a top tooth. Finally, after she had messed with it for awhile, I said "let me see how wiggle it is." It was CRAZY wiggly.. I told her I needed a piece of toilet paper to dry it off and see how lose it was.. I pulled it right out! It took her a second to realize her tooth was gone!!! She was relieved she wouldn't lose it in the water! The tooth fairy came and left her fairy dust all over the bedroom! She loved it! Kary went nuts when she saw it! She started screaming! :)

You can kinda see how the back of her tooth is showing on the front! It was so twisted!


Yay!!! Her tooth is gone!! She had to run and show Kary!


Her pouch for her tooth covered in fairy dust!! It was also around the bedroom!


We love the tooth fairy!


Tooth #6 (8-20-10)... It was getting crazy loose... Her other front tooth.. Well, Brittney came to pick Katrina up to go camping and they were driving away and she called me to tell me something funny Katrina said about Wes (him being old.. haha) and she noticed how loose her tooth was! I had told Katrina maybe she would lose it up camping.. But, during the day it got much looser and later Friday afternoon, Katrina called to say she lost the tooth!! Yay!!! Brittney barely even pulled on it and it fell out! Kary was very excited for her sissy and had to talk to her! It's really cute to see them interact, even though they hadn't seen each other in only a few hours, they were both like I miss you sissy! :) We haven't seen her toothless smile yet, but we will today, and Kary can't wait!! :)

Happy birthday, America!! And, Wesley!!


We have tons of birthdays right in a row!! Kary's is June 29th, Wes' is July 9th, and Katrina's is July 12th! Within two weeks, everyone but me has a birthday! And, mine is in May, so it's not too far away from all of theirs! For Wes' birthday his mom made finger steaks for him and then we just had some friends over to celebrate.. It was a pretty quiet birthday! He is old though.. 27!! :) I love him so much!! Can't believe I have known him since he was 20!! It seems like forever!!

And, to backtrack... Yes, these posts are going to be totally out of order.. Here are some pictures from the 4th of July! We went to Wes' mom's house and celebrated with his family!

Kary, Paul, Katrina, and Emily.





And, my sister was in town for a few days!! YAY!!! I missed her so much!!! I love my sister!! She took my other sister and I to see Eclipse opening night, even though she had a crazy early flight the next morning!!!

Amelia and her nieces and nephews!

Amelia, me, and Chelsea! I love my sisters!

Happy Birthday, girls!! Kary is 4 and Katrina is 6!

Best friends!


I can't even believe my Booboo is 4!! Where has the time gone!?!? She is so smart and so sassy! I love her so much!! She woke up to daddy bringing her cake w/ a candle! She got to eat it in bed!! Then, daddy (and me) took her to gymnastics.. See a trend... she wanted dad to do all the fun stuff with her! :) Then, we went to Roaring Springs with Katrina, Amelia (she was in town for a couple days), and my dad! On the way home they got ice cream cones from McDonalds! :) It was a fun 4th birthday!


We also had a birthday party for both girls the weekend before Kary's birthday. My sister was in town, so she got to come! I think it was the first birthday party she went to! :) They made out like bandits with all the presents they got!!



And, don't get me started on Katrina's birthday... 6!?!?!?! WHAT?!!? How did she get so old!? I remember holding her as a tiny little baby! Now, she is hilarious and such a smarty pants! :) For her birthday dad (again with dad.. he is much cooler than me!) woke her up with Pumpkin Loaf (from starbucks... it's what she asked for!) and a candle! She got to eat it in bed too! It was so exciting! That night, Brittney threw her a party at Chuck E. Cheese. We went and had tons of fun! :)



Kary and Katrina both just need to stop growing up! They aren't babies anymore... they are big kids with big attitudes!!

Watching dad play video games before their birthday party! :)
