Well, I shoved the girls in the car, crammed Tylers car seat in and raced over to the KNCI office. I was totally late because of traffic but the were awesome and waited for me.
The concert was the next night and we had a blast. The tickets were in the lower level and were perfect. We were only a couple rows from the floor. We got there a little late because we made dinner for our babysitters, my big sister who is the best big sister and friend in the world and Micah who is also great. James Otto was up first then Trace Atkins and then Alan Jackson. It was such a great concert. I liked it because it was really chill. Sometimes it is nice when the singer does not try and over perform.
The moral of my story:
Even though you might not succeed or have any luck for a long time just keep trying eventually you will! JUST KEEP SWIMMING! (If you don't know what I just said watch Finding Nemo)
I was trying to teach Brian how to take an America's Next Top Model picture.

I love my children and I know that I am not the only one.

Of all the people for this to happen to I never in a million years thought I would fall for it.
This morning as Kiley was painting (the inside of the house) someone called claiming they were from citibank. They stated that they recieved a payment for a citiflex credit card from my hubby and that it was .30 Cents short and that we incurred a late fee. At that point I should have hung up the phone. Instead I began to argue with them telling the person that we did not have a card with citibank and we traded information back and forth. Meaning they gave me bogus information about the person I thought had opeded a credit card in Brian's name as I acted like a dummy and actually gave them Brian's real info.
As I look back on the conversation I think to myself that I was a fool! I was unaware as to what I was doing. The person got of the phone with me and probably laughed. OHHH, I am so mad I could spit!
PLEASE DON'T BE AS DUMB AS I WAS!!!!
I called Brian right after it happen and gave him the number, thinking someone had opened a card in his name. He tried to call and it was a nonworking number. He looked the number up on google and you bet it says it is a scam!!! Somehow they put a forward on the number so that if you call it then you really do get citibank, but there is no record of the account.
Here is the number : 866-422-7941
I put the number in here several times so everyone now has the number and does not make the same mistake I just made. PLEASE, PLEASE remember it!
I had to spend all morning and afternoon on the phone with every credit card company as well as Experian, Equifax and transunion in order to put fraud alerts on everything. It was time consuming and very frustrating!
Be safe and don't give personal info to anyone!
Pray for those who got our info that they wont use it!!! Thanks!

So, ok here are some of the fun events the girls have been involved in over the last couple weeks:
Leas first experience with Jello... Oh, and using a spoon!
Haylie and Kiley just love each other so much...
We took a day trip to Apple Hill last week and we had so much fun. A ton of the place were closed but there were enough open that we were still able to see some ducks, get pony rides and of course buy some delicious apples.
Kiley found a friend when we first got there and would not leave her alone. She wanted to play ring around the rosey over and over again. Here is a picture of her and her new friend. She is such a friendly little cutie pie, isn't she?
Water Park to beat the heat.
Sleep over with Haylie. The girls had so much fun!
The girls love going in the jeep so we started going for rides on days when it is not to hot. Most of the time they just like to play in and through it. But here is a picture of them after church one day.
Ok, so when I said I was cleaning and doing other things...what I really meant was I was taking naps with the Kiley (this actually happens very rarely). Brian came home for work one day and caught me snoozing. If you don't know Kiley does not take a nap very easy. So every once and a while I will lay down with her and pretend to be asleep until she falls asleep. Well, this time sleep got the better of me.
Brian won tickets to a Lynyrd Skynyrd concert at Raley Field. It was a very interesting concert to be a part of and not one I would like to attend again.

I will explain.
When we got to the appt. poor Lea was starving so she was not the happiest girl. The good thing is that there were enough toys and other kids to distract her from her hunger. When we finally got called in Lea was given "Silly Juice". OH MY GOODNESS!! She became the most hilarious child I had ever seen. It was almost as if she was seeing hundreds of stars fly in front of her face. I was laughing so hard it was hard for me to hold her. When they took Lea away Kiley cried because she did not want the doctor to take her.
We waited what felt like forever but it really was only an hour. The specialist finally came out and showed us the pictures of the inside of Lea's stomach. She explained everything and said that it all looked normal. PRAISE THE LORD!!! She told us that they would call us back to see her. When we went back to see her she was screaming and kicking in the arms of one of the nurses. We got her some apple juice, sugar water and believe it or not a pacifier. She did not care much about the pacifier which was wonderful (I was a little scared). She was typical Lea: screaming, kicking and being demanding. The nurses told us that she should sleep on the way home considering that she did not sleep very much after they wheeled her out.
Lea of course she did not sleep the entire two hour car ride home. In fact she screamed her head off unless I was stuffing her face with food.
You know I feel truely blessed that there are people out there that God has picked out to do this kind of work and really love what they do. I was so happy with each and every nurse or doctor that we came in contact with. They all treated Lea like she was their child. It made me feel very blessed to be able to have and pay for health insurance.
Ok, so I am at a scrapbooking party and since my sister got all the creative genes in the family I don't scrapbook. I have tried many times and I just can't seem to stick with it. Plus I think I have ADD because I can't stay focused I always spend a long time looking at my pictures and not scrapbooking. See I just did it I got completely off topic so anyways I just am putting the disclaimer so that if there are errors you will know why and forgive me. It has taken me two hours to write this blog and now I am finally going to be done.
Oh, yeah I will post pictures of Lea in her little hospital that I actually ended up taking home (with the permission of the nurse). It is the cutest thing I have ever seen. Oh yeah I also got a video of Lea on her silly juice. It is so cute!!!

I am really concerned how this is going to affect her. I know that she is not going to remember but I am. So, maybe I am more worried about how I am going to react. I know and want to believe that the Lord has his hand in this and that He will keep her safe and at ease. I just pray that I can stay at ease during the whole day. I am also really concerned about Kiley because she is beginning to understand so much, much more than I realize. I don't want to shield her from this but I also don't want to scare her. It is such a tough place to be in. The only thing that I have left in me is to pray and ask our friends and family to do the same. Thanks to all!!! I will update after we know more.

Brian and Kiley are actually reeling in a fish. I tried to get a picture of the fish but was unsuccessful. Oh well, it is still a really action shot.
After they reeled the fish in Brian wanted Kiley to touch it. But, that was a no go! She folded her hands and said ewww gross.
This is Brian's Aunt Keri, cousin Greg and his kids Abby and Luke.
This is Lea after she went head first into the icy cold water. She went home naked.
Since I took a picture of Lea, Kiley wanted one too.
