We left out on Wednesday morning to go to Angelo where Daniel's family is. We were staying with Adam, Daniel's brother. Any way this is my first thanksgiving with out my mother in law and all the way to Angelo every little bit I would just tear up and the closer we got the more upset my tummy was over the anticipation of the emotional roller coaster I was already on. We got to Angelo and Adam and Kari welcomed us and it was so nice to get the kids out of the truck. Kudos to Adam and Kari they have recently redone almost every room in their house it was nicely put together and almost completely baby proof :) . THANK YOU BOTH. So any way shortly after we got there Rebecca, Daniel's sis, came over. With Rebecca and I both on emotional overdrive even though not much was said I was pretty worn out. The boys went to bed and I made the last batch of corn bread for the dressing while Kari made all the toast. I made the pea salad and then I was pretty well done except getting the turkey put in the roaster. When it came to the chocolate pie it was more than I could deal with emotionally so... Adam and Daniel came to the rescue and got right to work. Mom (Paula) was the only one to ever make the chocolate pie. So while the boys made pie Kari and I went to see Becca at work where I cried for the billionth time that day.
Thursday was not so bad for me since I had prepared all day the day before. making the dressing was the hardest part of the day since I missed Mom, but I did the best I have ever done and that made it all better I think mom would have liked it. Kari was so great to go for a walk with me that evening taking the boys in strollers. it helped to just be out out of the house for a little while.
Then on Friday I had to leave my hubby in Angelo since he had to work the next day and I cried again. After about 50 miles I was much better although missing him terribly. I was only 45 miles out of Delrio when Aaron could not take his wet diaper anymore. So I stopped at the only gas station for almost 90 miles to change him. When we came out there was a puddle under the truck. I started it and headed for the highway and the needle hit HOT. So.. no cell service I called mom and Dad who were on the lake in del rio from the little gas station and waited. Of course when they got there the truck was fine and did not overheat again. So.. to make a very long weekend short I had a great time with my family and they were great emotional support. I missed my hubby and I am so glad to be home.

I feel so incompetent at times with this potty training stuff Kody will not poo in the potty or in underwear so that is nice, but he always wants diaper. He says he wants to be a baby from time to time and I find it over whelmingly frustrating. I love my kidos and I love staying home with them I just wish there was a potty training boot camp for my little one I could send him and he would come home ready to roll. (for free of course). He has really totally gotten the pee, pee in the potty part and that is awesome. He made it through 3 football games without an accident. He has set through church and he is in his own Sunday school class. He has stopped having nightmares as often and when he does. We just tell him that God will keep him safe from monsters and we say a prayer and he settles down. I am so pleased with the progress that Kody is making daily.
Aaron is growing as well and his language skills are more advanced than Kody's were at his age. Kody already talks to much some times so this is a scary proposition. Aaron makes friends so easily and all the little kids a church love him. He has only recently learned to stand up for himself when others are not so nice. He is very affectionate and already has all the language skills for potty training. I just hope he is not as stubborn as Kody has been. I am so ready to spend less on diapers. Thanks for taking the time to check in more later Asta....

So anyway you are thinking great y'all are having fun.... well here we go the crying and griping begins.
See that little yellow circle inside it is Kody's left shoe. This caused only a very minor problem with a small amount fussing until the return of the shoe. The larger issue was when other people began to get o Kody's Elephant. After a short little talk he was ready to move on. Then it was the ponies he wanted to ride. I talked him out of that and then things fell apart. Kody saw the jump house there was only 6 minutes of intermission left and it would have cost 10 bucks to allow them to jump in it for 3 minutes. NO THANKS. Well the crying began and did not stop we went and set down and bought a coloring book, but the crying continued. They then announce that it will be another 5 mins til the show begins. However, since it was well past bath time and close to bed time and the kids were still falling apart and I could not find my phone; we headed out to the truck.
On the way to the truck I told Kody I would race him to the truck which stopped the crying until he lost his balance and fell to the ground. A new level of wailing began and did not stop until I gave him a chocolate milk from McDonald's. We finally made it home got baths, teeth brushed, clothes on, prayer, song and in bed. So now I am sitting down to a little peace and quiet and some office reruns. So I am going to get on with the peace now.
