Little pepper girl

I wanted to have this in writing, so I wouldn't forget it. I just finished making dinner and was on the phone with my sister in Az. And all of a sudden I heard a scream from Ella that I didn't recognize. I know which screams to ignore and which to pay immediate attention to. This one needed immediate attention. While I was on the phone with my sister, Lilly poured a whole cup full of pepper in Ella's high chair. Ella, who is at the age where she puts EVERYTHING in her mouth was eating pepper, and lots of it!  There were black specks all over Ella's face and in her mouth. Poor baby! I noticed Lilly was no where to be found and was hiding.I quickly washed Ella's mouth and eyes out with a cold rag and then gave her a bath. I don't think Lilly was doing anything to be mean, she just thought it wold be fun to give the baby pepper. Ella was fine. I gave her a bath and there was a million little pepper pieces floating in the water.Lilly felt bad  and we had a talk that we don't give Ella ANYTHING  until we ask mom!

I just love this kid

Walker's Rock and roll sign.He does this all the time now!

Yes, I adore Walker but the real reason I'm posting a new post, is I'm sick of Lilly's rash being the first thing I see. Its just plain disgusting! So I thought I would do a little something about my Walker. Walker turned 5 in July , I love 5! Its been so fun seeing him learn and grasp things. Isn't that what being a mom is all about?! I've been worried about him being one of the youngest in his class at school and being behind, but he's really starting to grasp his letters and numbers and even liking it! I'm just so relieved. He's such a help at home(most of the time.) I have him help me unload the dishwasher and make his bed, he even vacuumed the basement for me the other day. I have my very own little slave!! He's learning to  earn and save his money. Almost everything he saves is spent on Lego's. He's really a great big brother to Lilly and Ella. He loves to help with Ella and he's pretty patient with Lilly, which is a hard thing to do right now.All Lilly wants to do is pester and annoy him!So, he's pretty good about it. Walker loves the Book of Mormon stories and knows a lot of the stories. He reminds US to say our prayers and to read scriptures. But for some odd reason he doesn't like sacrament meeting!!? Hmm... could it be that being quiet  and sitting still for over an hour just isn't fun?Walker makes friends fast and loves to play all day with his buddies.He's been such a blessing to our family. Walker's nickname is "Boog". I've started calling him this when he was about 2 weeks old. It just stuck. And he's starting to hate it, Especially when Lilly Says it. But He'll always be my "Boog." I went in to check on him lat night while he was asleep,and just stood there watching him breathe.He looked so angelic and peaceful. I just stood there, watching in awe that he's mine and I'm his mom! I can never get tired of looking at his face. Not to mention his eyelashes are going to make any girl jealous!!Good thing he looks like his dad! 
 I could go on and on about this little boy. I just want him to know how much I love and adore him and think he's so great.I'm so proud of him. He's only five but he teaches me things everyday. We love you Walkerman.

I dont even know what to say..."The Rash"

Last Thursday Lilly was complaining that her arm hurt. So I took a look and there was a little ouchie.It looks like her armpit was rubbing against her shirt and irritating it, so I did the perfect cure all,I put a band aid on! That cures everything. Later that night I took the band aid off to give Lill a bath and there were a few more spots under her arm. I thought this is odd, but we'll wait and see if they go away or worsen. Friday, the original rash was bigger and redder and looked like some sort of flesh wound and more red spots.I got on Web MD to look up some rashes or skin conditions and there are MILLIONS of skin conditions.(maybe not millions, but close enough. )The good thing is Lilly didn't complain and they didn't hurt her, but they were spreading so fast. I called the doctor and got her in and she has some sort of bacterial rash. He gave her two different creams that needs to be applied 3 times a day and an antibiotic that she has to take for 5 days. It seriously hurt my heart to see these spots all over my Lilly!I was amazed how quick they spread from one little rash to the whole left side of her body in just a few short days. it looked like some flesh eating disease.I'm so grateful for well educated, trained doctor's and modern medications.  What would happen if we didn't have this technology now!?? I don't think I would have made a very good pioneer!  Needless to say, after a few days of medicine Lilly's rash is doing a lot better. Thank goodness!

Lilly's pre school

Lilly's cute preschool class with Mrs. Tiffany
Lilly was so excited to go to preschool dressed as her Tinkerbell! They had a little Halloween party and all the kids dressed up. Mrs. Tiffany had the kids do a little parade down the sidewalk. This is more for the amusement of the parents. I thought it was one of the cutest things I've ever seen! And then they had a Trunk or Treat and got candy  from the parents. It was really quick but just so cute. Lilly thought it was just great! Anytime she gets to dress up as a princess and get candy has got to be the best day ever!!

Happy Halloween

Crazy Becky in her Space man suit. THAT SHE MADE!!
Tinkerbell, isnt she a cutie???!
Ella and Tyson, I think they'll get married!!

Ella already for some "haunting"
We had ourselves a great Halloween this year! For school this year Walker had to dress up like the chearcters he is studying in at school, which happens to be Christopher Columbus. He dressed like a king or some kind of crusader and had a good time at school. As soon as he got home home he changed into his favorite costume, the storm trooper(form star wars.) He loves anything from star wars.He has worn this costume everyday for the past 2 months,and you can tell. It has grass stains, holes and is torn in some spots, but he still thinks it's the coolest.We went over to our good friends, the Browers for dinner. The kids were just dying to  get outside and go Trick-or Treating! Forget eating a healthy and good dinner, Give me candy!! So we did our Trick or Treating at the double cul-desac and covered a lot of territory in a short amount of time, meaning we got LOTS of candy! Walker was  the Storm Trooper, Lilly was Tinkerbell and Ella was the cutest, softest bunny I've ever seen!  The weather was so wonderful, it reminded me of Arizona. It was about 70 degrees outside . This year the kids and adults didn't need coats or gloves and could just enjoy being outside. I loved it. It was so fun going to all our neighbors and seeing everyone in passing. Everybody was outside enjoying the amazing fall weather! I just loved it. We had a great time and way to much candy!
