Best Buddies

I started this entry about three weeks ago, but haven't' had the chance to finish it so I hope you all enjoy these stories.....

I don't have a ton of time today, but if I don't write now I probably wont write at all. I just have a few story's about the boys.

First Jacob woke up this morning, by morning I mean 2AM. He tried to open our bedroom door, but couldn't. So I figured he just went back to bed. A few minutes later Ammon comes in with him. "Mom, Jacob woke me up cause he needs you." Once I had Jacob Ammon went back to bed with out a complaint.

This morning while I was getting ready Jacob asked where we were going. I told him that Ammon had a doctors appointment. He looks at me and says "Where I go?" Usually my mom goes to play with the kid that isn't seeing the doctor, but she is working today so I get both kids. I told him that he is going with us. Then he says "I hold Ammon's hand and tell the doctor not to hurt him." Then he found Ammon and told him "At the doctors you be okay cause I hold your hand and make sure they don't hurt you." The doctors appointment today is for Ammon's warts, he has over 10 on both hands. We went three weeks ago and started a hyper omun treatment that is supposed to be more effective and less painful. Today we are applying it to the warts and the doctor is going to show me how to do it at home. Then every week we apply it and the warts should go away in a few weeks to a month!

At the doctor Jacob remembered what he had promised his brother. He went up to the doctor and said "Don't hurt my brother." The doctor reassured him that this wasn't going to hurt, in fact Ammon wouldn't feel a thing. Then the doctor has Ammon sit on the table and starts to apply the medication. Jacob freaks out, I ask him what is wrong and he says "Ammon needs me to hold his hand." The doctor turns to him and says, "I need his hands, but you can hold his foot." So Jacob stood there holding his brothers foot. It was so sweet....Now if only they treated each other like this all the time especially at home or while grocery shopping!

Ammon told me the other day that when he gets married and his wife is at the hospital having a baby girl he is going to name her Heather after me. Also he has a friend that's mom had a baby 4 months early. The baby is doing better, but still isn't able to come home from the hospital. So we have been having this over a couple times a week so that his parents can go to the hospital. While we were outside one day when it was actually nice outside, the boys were pretending that Ammon was the dad and his friend Chance was his baby. Ammon comes over and sits next to me and says, "Wow, they grow up so fast. Don't they" I smiled at him and said "You have no idea!"

We went and registered Ammon for kindergarten last week and much to my suprise Jacob was excited he said "Ammon this is your school, not mine" And everytime we drive or walk past it Jacob gets excited and points it out to him. I just hope he is still excited when he relizes that he will be home alone, with me. They are best friends and Jacob doesn't like it when Ammon isn't at his side. We took Ammon to a primary party and Jacob freeked out that we left Ammon some where and couldn't wait for the chance to go pick him up.

Catching Everyone Up

Sorry it has been so long everyone! We have been super busy! I am no longer working which has only meant more time to clean house! I have been trying to potty train Jacob. We aren't accident prof, but we are getting close!

We took the boys shooting on one of Joe's days off. They had fun, but enjoyed looking for brass more.
We also went to Joe's parents house for a visit. We love to go down there, but don't always get the chance. The boys had a blast making art with grandma, but Ammon's favorite thing was the scooter he got for his birthday!

My dad took the boys and me to a BYU hockey game. Which was way to much fun! Jacob wont stop talking about it. "Hockey, we go hockey game." We sat next to the penalty box for the other team. Ammon sat and played with the people in the box. I tried to get pictures, but my camera was to slow.

We also took a drive out to Vernal to see what it is like. Joe applied for a management position in the new Vernal Cal-Ranch. The store will open in May so we will hopefully find out soon and let you know if we are moving or not. While in Vernal we took the boys to the dinosaur museum. They had a blast, but Jacob was tired so by the end he didn't want anything to do with the scary dinosaurs.

We celebrated Ammon's Fifth Birthday on the first of March. We took him to Chuck E Cheese. Has been dieing to go there for at least six months. They had so much fun Jacob wants to go back for his Birthday! He walks around the house talking about winning tickets and playing the games.

Also on the first of March Joe's brother David and wife Amy Dawn had another boy. That makes 4 grandson and girls. So we went to South Jordan and saw the cute new baby! Oh how I love babies to bad we are done! And to bad they don't stay that little I miss the sweet little baby Cryes!

Joe was made President of his Masonic Lodge for the year. Which has added to our busy lives. I swear we have some kind of function every week. Well maybe not, but at least one or two a month! This month has been very full of them! The kids love when we can take them, but also love the grown up only ones that they get to grandma and grandpa Mac's.

I think that this is most of what we have been up to! I am going to hopefully be better at writing every week, but I guess we will see how next week goes!
