Wow, Four months later.
Well most of our family know that we have had a few life changing occurrences taking place for our family. As I mentioned before, a long time ago it seems, that we sold our house and were planning on our next home being built in Hagerman. WWEELLL, Bill felt very strongly that he needed to go back to school and finish his civil engineering degree. So we attended the temple, valiantly prayed, had many a long nights talking and pro'd and con'd the whole idea. Of course, the pros outweighed the con's and here we are...sitting in our bed, in our "new" condo,(well it's not actually ours, we are renting) in ..........

(not in the temple, but in Logan)

This is where we live.......

This is where Bill spends the majority of everyday! (but boy are we grateful and definitely thrilled when it's over)................

This is where I spend a few nights a week for a few hours a night.
Come see me on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday!!

is who watches these kiddos
while Bill is in School....


Is who watches these girls

While I'm at work and Riley is at school.

This young Lady.......has been watching the girls on Mondays until Bill and Riley get out of school.(LIFESAVER!!)

and This Young Couple.......Takes them Tuesday's for a couple hours while Bill goes up to his Lab, and I pick em up when I get out of the Salon.

It really sounds like they go all over the place everyday...but it's not as bad as it sounds. Monday the girls have gone to Paige for 4ish hours, and Tuesday, My Dad picks them at home from Bill and takes ALL 3 to his house for 2ish hours. I love that I have family here to help us out(they are awesome...thanks dad, Mary & girls) and also sooo thankful that my friend has been helping us out! (Thanks Paige, Brinkley & Kenzie!) It would be really hard to take my kids to daycare to people I don't know.... No offense to you daycare providers, I think it's great!....but you also have FREAKS out there too.

It is one of my personal goals to keep this family blog updated as much as possible...I CAN DO IT!

Love the Kings!

Sleep Apnea

(The dates on these photo's are not correct...dumb camera.)

Miss Madi and my Mate are on their way for a Dr's Appointment with the ENT Dr. That's right, both of them are being tested for Sleep Apnea. I'm left at home because I have an extra munchkin running around our house that I have to watch. (Madi playing with Riley today before her appointment.)

I'm feeling a little sorry for Bill though, because Madi is an absolute beast when it comes to Doctors. She will kick and scream the whole time!! Like it's some sort of torture. :)
She is horrified of stethoscopes. Hates em. Madi had her tonsils and adenoids removed when she was 1.5 yrs old. It hasn't really done much for her so this was the next step according to her pedi and ENT dr. She has EVERY symptom of sleep apnea in children under 5. This will be interesting if they don't diagnose her with it. Granted, that would be totally awesome!! I'm not ready to have to deal with any sort of machine. I don't even know how we'd get her to use it!
Now on to Bill. When we were first married, we of course would snuggle up and be deep in slumber when I'd wake up suddenly.....! Due to what? you ask.
I would be sleeping with my hand on his chest and I would wake because I wouldn't feel my hand move up and down...(it was very soothing, it's what put me to sleep.) I'd sit up and sit and watch, and when more time went by and me not feeling comfortable with my husbands chest not rising and falling, I'd kick or push him, and he'd suddenly gasp for air, and then of course start snoring until it would happen again.
He NEVER believed me and would never go to the doctor. FINALLY, 6.5 years later, I have him talked into being tested.
I'm nervous for them both, we'll see how it all goes down. humf.

(I posted this pic just because I can't get enough of her and her cute diapered hiney!)

A FOOT! 12 IN. --- I DID WHAT!!?>??!!

I took the plunge!!! It's still shocking....I'm not quite used to it. I haven't had my hair short in 9yrs! What do you think??



What I do like is that I can have multiple styles with the cut...(straight, out, under, whispy...ect.) That my friends I do like.
What I dislike....well, I guess it can be a good thing too. I look chubbier with short it is my motivation to be more determined to lose the weight I'm wanting to.

Lily Update

Silly Lily is her name. We love her SOOO much. Of course we love our other offspring, but she seriously gives us 0(zero) problems. Really though, what would parenthood be without problematic children? Children would be perfect (which none of us are) and they would have nothing to learn, which would give us parents no purpose. I'm rambling so sorry. Back to Lily, the Clean-eating,naughty-talking,weird-looking,handful-of-all-handfuls baby. Completely false. She is a very messy eater, see.....

After every meal, I have to strip her down to her skivvies and bathe her afterwards, or leave her in her clothes and just change her outfit when she is done, however, no matter what option I choose to deal with, it almost always ends up with her having a pool party bath. I never did post about her birthday. (That will be another post that I will end up putting back into Nov 2008)
Naughty-talking is also a lie on my part. She has got to be the sweetest little talker. She is starting to add two words together now. It's always when she see's Bill or I and it goes something like this. We hear her sweet talking in the morning (I'm gonna have to get that on camera one of these times.) so we get up to go get her out of her prison *aka* her crib, and the first thing she says is "hi momma....or very rarely (because I'm always the one that gets up with her at 6:30am) "Hi daddy". Or when either one of gets home from errands she greets us with the same warm makes you just want to go eat her....BTW she is very delicous. I will admit, I have taken a couple nibbles from her. She LOVES to sing. She'll hear me singing around the house, and follow me around singing. It's Bill's favorite thing to see and hear. One song she sings goes like this.....I sing: (yes it's from Barney) if all the raindrops were lemon drops and gumdrops, oh what a rain that would be, standing outside with my mouth open wide...(this is Lily's part) ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah. (HA, how many of you just sang that song out loud or in your head....and actually did the ah part....hehe.) It's so cute to hear her do that part.
Weird looking - Okay, that may have been true when she was fresh out of the womb. Bill and I both think Madi and Riley kicked her trash on looks. You all know some babies aren't the cutest looking ya know with all the swelling and the conehead going on.....(maybe I'm cruel) She was kinda one of those babies....not now! She actually caught up on the looks when she was a couple days old. :)..her personality makes her that much more good looking. We think she's a Doll..Look at her!
We have also taught her sign language, just because.....she signs and speaks at the same time: milk, drink, mom, dad, cheese, thank you, more, and we are working on water...that one is kinda hard with her having to hold three fingers to her chin. Thanks to Ashley and her sweet Angel Mercy, they inspired and motivated us to do this. Some parents are against signing when a child has the ability to talk because they say it holds them back on their speech. I beg to differ though. We haven't had a problem with it holding Lily back, it has actually helped.
This is her favorite place to hang out...
(no, that is not pee coming through on her pajama' is her milk from her cereal.)
Bill says she is happy when she wakes up till the moment she falls asleep.
Handful! HA!

Bout time fer sum updates

Okay, since people love like me and want to know what is going on in the King household, I thought I'd ramble on about what has been happening in this long short while of absent posts.

So here is my idea. Starting today, I will update ya'll on one of our family members. I have to be done updating by Friday, so you may get two posts in one day. Yippee!!

So who to start with.....none other then the Clean-eating,naughty-talking,weird-looking,handful-of-all-handfulls baby! Actually, none of that is true at ALL!!! I'll explain in the update about her....COMING SOON...tonight!

Pictureless Post...but priceless.

If I could've only caught on camera what I witnessed today, it would be PRICELESS. It's a cute little image that I will always remember. Cheesy, maybe...true, yes.
I sent the kids outside today to get some fresh air. The sun today definately gave us spring fever. They were jumping on the trampoline with all the neighbor kids and decided they wanted to go across the street to play at the other kids' house. Riley and the other boys hopped off the tramp leaving Madi trailing behind...(mind you, I'm watching the whole thing...Madi still makes me nervous on the tramp...she is OC!!) Back comes Riley as she is struggling to get off, and he grabs her coat while she climbs down, then proceeds with trying to put her coat on...they didn't quite manage the process and decided to head over to the neighbors....again with Madi bringing up the rear. Riley then turns around, runs back to Madi and grabs her coat so she could go run with them.
As frustrated as I get with him, he's sure a sweetheart & knows how to take care of his little sister!
What a sweet heart!!!

You are summoned....

To help me if you read this post!!!

Okay, this isn't the update I promised you I'd give....but it's a post right?!
So there is a little addition to our family for a majority of the day....everyday.
Her name is Peyton...and I babysit her I thought. We had come up with $15 a day m-f. Well, fulltime to me was 8-5..ya know, like a regular work day. Well, it's NOT an 8hr day...which I wasn't at all expecting...which is fine...but not for 15 a day. She gets dropped off at my house at 6:45am, and gets picked up at 6:00pm. 11HRS!!!!! I'm expected to supply the food, drinks and she supplies diapers and wipes. With 11hrs, I am watching her longer..during dinner time now. I'm not experienced enough in knowing how much to charge....she said she is very flexible..I just need to let her know. Well what do I much do I charge....Please help me!!!!
Peyton is 2 yrs old and has quite the sassy personality....I guess you could say she is like a hand full! :)

p.s. Bill is going dirt biking down in Mesquite, NV this I will have plenty of evening time that I plan on updating the Blog per requests...Life has been busy.
