About Us

Andy and I met on a blind date in Dec. 2005. One of my 7th grade students was his neice, and she set us up. Go figure. We saw each other every day after that! We were engaged by June and married in September of 2006. In January, 2008, we welcomed little Ethan into our home, and in August, 2010, little Addison arrived.

Andy is a diesel mechanic at Kennecott. I taught middle school science for ten years, and am now an evidence-based learning specialist for a school district.

Never a Dull Moment

Well, it's going to be quite an interesting week. Last night we spent most of the night at instacare with Ethan. Turns out he fractured a metatarcel in his foot. He tipped over in one of our kitchen chairs, and it the chair landed right on his little foot. He has to wear a little boot around and won't walk on it at all. He keeps telling us that "I hurt real bad."

I've had a lot of bird poop on my porch lately, and wondered where the birds were sitting. Last night when we came home there were 4 birds sitting on the sign hanging on our front porch. So, we were checking them out, and when we walked in the house, one followed along with us. Andy spent quite a few minutes chasing the bird through the house trying to get it back out the front door. Quite a scene.

Today we're off to the surgeon to figure out when we can get my gall bladder taken out.

Wednesday morning we're going in for an amniocentesis to determine if little Addison is ready to be delivered, and if she is, then we are scheduled for a C-section on Thursday!

Cross your fingers for us, because it would be wonderful to be holding our little one on Thursday! That way we can get this stupid gall bladder taken care of earlier than later.

Sounds exciting! I hope your amnio says your ready too, I want you to be holding your little one on Thursday too.

I hope Addison can come on Thursday! I thought you were going home an getting rest yesterday, not dealing with even more drama! Good luck.

Jethro said...

So much for going home and resting, eh? Good luck with Thursday! Just tell them to take the gall bladder when they take Addison. Shouldn't be too difficult, right?

I'm embarrassed to ask this, but -- do you need a gallbladder or is that one of those organs we don't really utilize? I hope you don't need it.

Good luck getting that baby of yours!

I am so excited for you guys!! I can picture Andy trying to shoo the bird out. Funny;) Good luck. Can't wait to see some pics.

I'm sorry things are so crazy! Maybe I should get you guys a cat to take care of the bird problem . . . Good luck with the gallbladder surgery and I'm excited to see this baby girl when she comes!
