Surgery Bound.....

Kennedi had a check-up at Primary Children's Hospital yesterday. Two years ago, she was diagnosed with Vesicoureteral Reflux (reflux of the bladder). We went in yesterday and did a voiding cystourethrogram (VCUG) and an ultrasound on her kidneys. They were hoping to find that it had improved since the tests 2 years ago, but we found out it has gotten worse and it's doing damage to her kidneys. Every time she has a bladder infection, it scars her kidneys, which means it eats a little away from the outer edge. They told us she needs to have Ureteral Reimplant Surgery to fix her problem. They will go in just below the bikini line and change the way her abnormal ureters connect with her bladder. It's about a 2-3 hour surgery, and she'll have to spend 2 nights in the hospital.
When I told her what was gonna happen, I expected her to be scared or a little nervous, but I should have known.....she is thrilled!! She is so excited to get to be in the hospital for 2 days and get visitors, LOL, she is so funny! Nothing phases this girl, thank goodness.
She is scheduled to have her surgery on February 10th.

BABY BUMP at 16 WEEKS it is, the BIG bump at 16 weeks along.....I wanted to get it on here before I'm 17 weeks on Thursday. (love my cell phone photography skills)

I had a check-up today and heard the babies heartbeats...which I always love, and I am measuring at 21 weeks.

YAY....almost half way!

Our Little Monsta turned 2 years old today! I can't believe he his getting so big.

On Saturday, we had a little family birthday party for him......

He crawled under the table when we starting to sing to him, it was so funny!

He wouldn't blow out his candles....he made Kenna do it for him.

He sure did love that frosting though!

He got lots of fun presents and was so excited!

Today, on his actual birthday, we went to Ephraim and took him bowling and had dinner.......

It was so funny to watch him bowl....he would pick up his ball and then just throw it anywhere he was standing.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAX....................WE LOVE YOU!!!!

We are having.........

2 BOYS!!!!!!

We are really happy and excited. At first I was really sad. The one thing I've said since we found out I was having twins is I want anything but 2 BOYS!
When we went in today for the ultrasound, I told our tech that she better not tell me I'm having 2 boys. She said it might be too early to tell anyways, but we'd look.
As she was measuring everything on Baby A, before she even started to look for gender, we saw "IT"...plain as day! I started to panic a little but thought we had one more baby to go, so I still had hope.

When she got to Baby B, pretty much the same thing happened. She started measuring everything and when she got to the Femur I saw "IT" again. When I saw it, our Tech said, "yeah I saw it a minute ago but didn't want to say anything". She and Shane just gave me a hard time the rest of the ultrasound.

I did hold my tears until we were walking our of the hospital though. Afterwards, we went and got 2 BLUE balloons and took them to our house before we picked up the kids. We had Kennedi walk in the house with her eyes closed. She was so excited until she opened them and immediately started bawling and yelling that she didn't want 2 more brothers, that she wanted a sister...I couldn't help but cry right along with her!
Now that a few hours have passed....and I've heard from EVERYONE, "Oh just think of how good they'll all be together in high school sports"....I'm getting more excited. We'll have 3 little boys under the age of 2 and when they get a little older hopefully they will all be the best of friends!

Christmas 2010

We had a very Merry Christmas! We spent it in Moab, where it was a nice 50 degrees the whole weekend. Santa was very good to all of us this year. Kennedi got the Diamond Back Mountain Bike she wanted and Dax got a little 4-wheeler.

At first he didn't seem to really care about it, but Kennedi showed him how it worked and then he loved it!

And of course, he thought it was so funny to run people over on it......


We introduced Dax to Toy Story and now he LOVES it. I got him these cheap little boots to wear on Halloween so he could be a cowboy, but he REFUSED to wear them until now because they have BUZZ and WOODY on them. Now he won't take them off....even has to sleep in them!

While we were in Moab, Kenna and Dax were chasing each other around my parents' kitchen and Kenna slipped on something and fell down and ripped her chin open. I took her right down to the hospital to get stitches....

She was really nervous....she wanted them to just glue it closed but the doctor said it was too deep and that she really needed stitches.

She was really good through the whole procedure and ended up getting 11 stitches that she is very proud of!
