We finally start seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and gues what... I lost my wallet! :( I swear that someone broke into my car and took it! If anyone see's a silver wallet on their morning walks... open it and see if it's mine! :) It has my very first temple recommend in it... I don't care about the money... If the thief would just return the recommend I'd be so happy. :) Heck I'd even give them money for it!

Beckhams Hospital Stay

What a cutie huh? So when we arrived at the Hospital they were running a few hours behind so Beckham didn't get into Surgery until about 11:45 instead of 9:30-10:00. But he didn't mind because when we went to his prep room, they had a TON of toys! Just look at this picture... He thought that was the coolest thing ever. Little did he know what was going to happen in a few minutes.

This is me and Beck buying time until he goes in.... we were playing with play-dough from his box of goodies.

This is his Doctor who performed the surgery. Beckham was so brave, the doctor came in and talked with us for a minute then said "Beck are you ready to go?" Then he just carried him back. Beckham didn't even cry for me or Justin. I'm bummed I didn't get to hug him... They said it's better to act like nothing is wrong so we didn't even hug him.

Then came the aftermath... What a sad thought. The nurse said that I would be able to go into recovery with him but they didn't let me. They just wheeled me into the hall in between the surgical room and the recovery room and all you could hear was Beckham screaming for me... That is one of the hardest things... when you want to comfort him but you can't. Finally they brought him to me and when we got to the room Justin wanted to hold him... This is them with Becks 3 favorite things in his words... "Lellow" (the blanket) "Giraffie" (his stuffed animal) and dad.

I kinda had a feeling that Beckham would be like me in recovery... in all of the surgeries I've had I'm almost always the first to go in and the last to leave. He wasn't doing too good the first day, he wouldn't drink or eat anything. This is him sleeping..

The next day He still wasn't eating and we were starting to get nervous.. The doctor said take out The IV and finally he started to drink a little. He really wanted fries to eat so I ordered some and he ate a few. Not wanting to stay in the Hospital another night I pleaded with The Nurse to let us go home... but she wouldn't budge... finally late that evening they let us go home on one condition... that if he wouldn't drink at home to bring him straight back. So we gladly took him home and The second we walked in The door he was eating and drinking as if he'd never got The surgery. We ate Pizza for Heavens sake.

Boy I feel like the song by Brittany Spears... "Hit me baby one more time" Seriously, we just keep getting hit and hit! This is Justin's Grandma and he's doing better. She was the only one left on his moms side so it's bitter sweet. His Grandpa died over 10 years ago so they both have been waiting a long time to see each other again. But still our heart aches that we don't get to see her for awhile. I feel bad because I should have aked her about her favorite memories when she was a kid and her favorite recipie; now we'll never know.

I'm kinda stressed cause the funeral is tomorrow and that was the day I was going to take my mom out for her Birthday cause her b-day is on wed (beckhams surgery day). I know that we can do it this weekend, but I wanted Beckham to be well and happy for her day. Also I'm worried that Beckham isn't going to make it though the funeral. We have to be there from like 11:45-6:00! Pray that he'll be the best 2yr. old ever! :)

Here is one of may favorite pictures of "gama margie" and Beckham together

Wow I'm a baby!

Yesterdays post was really an over-reaction on my emotions. I tend to always look on the downfall of EVERYTHING. Our life really isn't as bad as I put it, we've done so many fun things this past month so I want to make a happy post about that. And even though we're going through times of trial I can honestly say that we are being blessed by the Savior in so many ways! We just have to be patient and learn from all of this. I know that God won’t put us through something you can’t handle. He knows we have the capability to get through it. But I've learned we can’t do it all by ourselves, we have had to know and use our resources, like the Ensign, B.O.M and conference talks. We can’t give in to the Devil, even just a little bit, or everything will go down. Not just our faith that everything will be okay, but our abilities to count on the Lord and our potential to help others.


As you all know we LOVE taking pictures and these next 2 are some recent favs...

Oh, the brick wall. We've gone here many times!

We took this one using a ghetto studio setup in the house but I love the pic.

Did you notice my new music pod on my sidebar? (I've been listening to those songs a lot lately) Well anyway this is my I-pod boy. Beckham has a love for music, He usually listens to "Life is a Highway" by Rascall Flatts or Primary songs with "popcorn popping" being his favorite

LOL. I love this picture... we went bowling with Beckham and I couldn't stop laughing! Look at his face! He was like this the entire time. Everytime he wouldn't get a strike he would say ah man and he would look like this.

I was able to go to Las Vegas for work/play and my mom was able to come with me. My sister went as well and she modeled for me at circus circus. We took some PUNK pics of her. This one was my favorite. Also we went to the Valley of Fire Ntl. park and were able to see indian ruins. The view was AMAZING, these pictures do it no justice!!!

And finally we were able to go to baby animal days last week! Oh how I love it. I was seriously not wanting to leave. Beckham held every animal on a farm from chickens, cows, pigs, goats and bunnies. He even held a ball python. Yikes! He also tried BBQ larva. (dried bug rolled in BBQ flavoring) He sure doesn't take after me on that one. YUCK! Justin enjoyed eating them though, he'll eat anything but beets. I'll eat beets over bugs anyday!

Sad Sad and More Sad!!!

So I feel like these pictures today...

We seriously can't catch a break. Today we found out that Beckham needs his tonsils out, adenoids out, and tubes in his ears. He has his surgery next wed (my moms birthday). Plus he has to stay overnight. The doctor said he hasn't seen tonsils this big for years. Poor thing, he takes after me. I was the same way; I got mine out when I was his age too.

Then on top of that, I have to go in for my tube appointment in a few weeks. Where they say it's crazy painful so i have to get anesthesia and Valium and stay with someone for a day.

Then on top of that, I was supposed to get my new tooth tomorrow, but we'll have to wait now because we can't afford all of this.

Then oh yes, on top of that; our doctor told us we are 99.9% most likely going to have to do in-vitro if we want another baby. Unless a miracle happens.

Then another add on of all of that, I have to start beckham on antibiotics and he HATES medicine. He usually spits it out or freaks out for hours! UGH!

I just need some good news.

But on the bright side I did a few scrapbook pages in honor of my grandpa...

and I got Beckham's Easter bunny pics back today...
