we survived

 Its been a little while since my last post, so I thought I would drop in and let you all know we are alive!!! It has been a wild few weeks, but we survived. we enjoyed a family day at eh safe kids fair where the kids got to visit with the star wars characters, they thought that was pretty cool. They got tons of free coloring books, and candy, and all sorts of cool things. It was nice to get out for the day.
 And I had to sneak in some pics of my little Zander, he is getting so big!!!
 This is his little had collection, he looks so cute his hats. This is his 3 month pic!
 Then my oldest baby, turned 15!! can you believe that, I am finding it hard to believe myself, but Zach turned 15 on april 25. Time sure flies. I think that he had a pretty good day, we didn't do much, but we sure had a great family time celebrating with him.
 Love that smile!
 Wow that is a lot of candles.
 And this little man has no more front teeth!! $2.00 richer and a ton cuter, and a little lisp, he is wishing for his two front teeth.
 I  also had the opportunity to help throw a bridal shower for my neice jonni, I had such a fun time doing it, and it turned out so awesome! here is a pic of my girls, alli,  and abby (and my other girls, kristie, and shelby, and lizzie) with their moustaches and tieras during the game we played.
Joey and Zander hanging, out together, my cute boys, and a last pic of zander with his cute little smile. makes my day, every single day! As do all my kids.

And finally my medical update: I ended up having my galbladder out this last tuesday. The surgeon is pretty sure this will solve my problems. I am certain it will also, recovery has been slow, its not easy to recover when you have a 3 month old, but I will get there :) my parents have been awesome helping me everyday, in fact friday, my dad came and kidnapped me and took me home with him so they could help with the baby for the night and let me get a full nights rest so I could get more energy, they are so thoughtful! As for the tumor on my adrenal gland, my dr is going to scan it every 3 months for about a year to make sure it doesn't grow or change, if it does then we will talk about removing it, but if it doesn't then he will not worry about it. so for now, thats it! no more medical stuff till my next scan in july! I can keep recovering from this surgery,and get stronger every day, hopefully in the next week I can pick up my fat baby without saying "ouch" lol.

And upcoming events, we have more birthdays, (brians was actually yesterday,) and allis is in 2 weeks!!! end of school is just around the corner! yikes!
