Just kidding!

Well, I had my follow up today, and my arm isn't borken! I am so relieved and excited. He said that it is still going to be really sore (duh!) but I don't have to wear a cast or anything unless I want to...No thanks! But I thought this was great news and I am so excited!

Well, it was a lovely weekend! We were all in the garage changing the tires on the Jeep. I was on one side mounting a tire and Devin and Corey were on the other side getting that tire ready to be changed. The Jeep slipped off of the jack and came down on my arem and squished it against the tire. We went to the ER and had x-rays done. There are three little chips on my wrist. I have a soft cast and a sling. I have a follow up appointment tomorrow and thry will do more x-rays to see what needs to be done next. It was still swelling, so they couldnt cast it yet. But on a good note, the new tires look great on the Jeep! ;)

Pictures and stuff

Our new toy :)
It is a Willyz, but I'm not sure what year it is. All I know is that is runs and we can take it out and play, that is the important part right?! Just in time for summer fun in the dirt! ;)

A few weeks ago we took Corey to a dinosaur museum in Ogden, UT. Ever since then he asks if we can go and see dinosaurs today.
This is a triceratops head...huge next to Corey!

There is also a skyline view of Vegas.
We went to Vegas a while back. I am just now postin any pictures, sorry. We went with Devin's parents Rick and Sharon. We took Corey to the Dolphin and Lion habitat and he loved the dolphins! There was a guy on the strip one night who was cross dressing and hilarious! He had a really deep voice. Devin isn't a homophobe, but this guy actually made him pretty uncomfortable, it was pretty funny!

Devin and I thought we would get Corey some goldfish because he LOVES fish. We got five fish and the supplies (tank, food, etc). We got home with everything and got it set up at about 7:30 in the evening. The next morning I thought Corey was still in bed and I was on my way out the door for work. I heard Corey say "Hi mom. Da fish get out of da wader." That's when I started to worry. I walked over to the fish tank and discovered that the water was brown and the can of fish food is empty. Then it really started to sink in that "Da fish get out of da wader." Upon more investigation I discovered that the tank is two fish short. I found one lifeless fish on the floor and another headless fish on the counter next to the tank. We never found the fish's head, and it was a pretty clean cut. The only thing we could think of is that Corey had eaten the fish's head off and decided that he wasn't much of a sushi fan. Poor fish... and nasty! Funny kid!

Well, like the title says, I need to catch up! :) Since Christmas life has been busy but good. Health wise this year has been a lot better for the three of us. Corey thought he would try some ibuprofen pills, but thankfully he didn't eat enough to warrant having his stomach pumped. That gave us a scare though! Devin is due to finish his Master's in about six months. Halelujia! I am so proud of him. He has worked hard to get there. Corey is just plugging along. He will be four this year and I can't beleive it! His vocabulary is advancing a lot and he says the funniest things. Here is a sample: "Dad, I not you kid!" "Hi weatheart" "Goomorning mom" (that one works all day long) "I need a go potty" or "I poot" "Mom, Dovy git me" (Darby the bully yorkie) "Gees!" "Oh yeah, uh huh!" (that one goes with a little victory dance) "Oh cwap" "You funny" There is so much more, but I can't think of all of the phrases right now. But he is happy and healthy and funny as ever! I am still working and doing school. Life is crazy! And I have to say that I have the best husband ever! Devin planned a suprise trip for me to fly to Arizona to see my family next month! He set it up with my parents and made sure that I didn't know anything about it until I had to take the time off of work. He is sending me by myself because he wants me to have a break. He must know how desperately I need a break! It will be nice to see everyone. Also, Dustin (my younger brother) was in a dirtbike accident on the 4th of March. I'm sure that everyone who read this knows, but I need to document it for my own remembering. Dustin had three pins put into the second vertebrae in his neck. He is still in a neck brace just to stabilize it until everything is healed. Dustin is a miracle! The wreck in itself should have killed him. Not only that, within an hour after the surgery he was wlaking around! I love Dustin so much and I am so glad that he made it through and that he will be able to live a normal life after recovery. I love you so much Dustin and I am so excited to see you next month! I will post lots of pictures after I load them onto my computer. I hope this post will be enough to appease you all until then.
