They made a "hopscotch" game outside, and tried to play it too. The only problem was that the squares were a bit too small for their feet.

Thank goodness Adyson hasn't got this...yet. If she does, I may hire a nanny and find me a full time job.
We were lucky enough to get a night out and go to the Aggie game with some of our friends from our ward this weekend. (Thanks Mont and Mindi!) It was such a fun night, and once again, I am so thankful that we live here. We live by some pretty great people! It as great that Travis is still feeling pretty good so he could really enjoy the game. If you were at the game, he was that really loud annoying guy yelling at the refs. :)
Today was Padin's Birthday, and it was so fun to go see them. He is such a cute kid and just as laid back as they come. He didn't really want presents, he just needed a cake from grandma and he had to have hot wings for his dinner. Yes, hot wings! It cracked me up that my 4 year old nephew has a hot wing addiction! It was great to see you guys, and Happy Birthday Padin!
Padin eating his hot wings! He was happy.

He had a treatment today and is feeling pretty good still. Taking that one week off has made a huge difference in how he feel physically, and emotionally. His throat is only a bit swollen right now and he only has one canker. It has been a very nice 2 weeks of normalcy and we welcomed it! We ate regular people food. We chatted in normal voices, no sore throat whispers. I even put him to work helping me get our bedroom ready to paint. (I really didn't...but I hinted enough :) He's a good man! His doctor agreed to him doing 6 weeks on and one week off today, and I hope that makes life a bit easier for him. It is nice to have a light at the end of the tunnel, even if he only has it for one week.
Sienna is still a pretty sick kid. She has a high fever and still hasn't held anything in. I feel terrible for her, but hopefully tomorrow she will feel better. In the meantime I am having a love affair with my Lysol spray, and just 5 minutes ago folded 5...yes 5 loads of laundry.
As usual, thankyou all so much for you support and prayers. I will be better about updating about Trav, but it has been such a great break not thinking about the cancer all the time! I am constantly thinking of people I still need to send thankyou cards to...I hope I get them written one day!

Trayson got to spend a bit of chillin' time with Travis. These two get along beautifully!
Great Gram was able to come over and spend some time with the Great Grandkids. They just love her.Sienna was just as happy as can be. She loves to be around all the kids and just adores baby Brielle.
Adyson and Kutter are inseperable. They get together and we pretty much don't see them for the rest of the day. Today they spent hours playing hide and seek. They mostly hid in about two places, but they made it work.
The best part of this weekend was that Travis has felt pretty good. (He started treatments again on Thursday.) Usually Saturdays he is pretty miserable and we stay home and he relaxes for most of the day. This Saturday he felt almost normal, though his throat hurt just a little. I watched him devour the largest Cheeseburger ever and we caught a movie with the kids. It was so wonderful to have a pretty great weekend as a family! Tonight he is starting to feel a bit lousy, but hopefully it wont get too bad. There you go, that is what we have been up to. I hope you all had a great weekend too!
I just noticed that I don't have any pictures of Breezy. I wish I did so I could show you all how stinkin' beautiful this kid is! She has grown up to be such a delight and so much fun! It is great having her be old enough to have girl chat, and she is so helpful with the kids. Breezy, I love you.

These girls. I love these girls, and have missed these girls during my 2 month hiatus of bunco. Some I have known for years. We shared middle school embarrasing moments and high school drama together. Some I met in Beauty school and bonded instantly with. We spent many bad haircuts, late morning hot cocoa runs, met some "interesting" boys together, and also watched eachother fall in love and get married. Some of them the friendships weren't so easy to form, but now they are great friends none the less. (Is that supposed to be one word, if so, just ignore my terrible spelling.) Some of my these friends I have only met through this fun Bunco group, but they make our night so dang fun! Tonight I am thankful that my path has crossed with these beauties! How freakin' lucky am I? I have laughed with these lovely ladies. They have seen me at my abslolute worst, and helped me through some tough times. I have cried to them, complained to them, and of course...being the great friends they are, they still just take great care of me. Thankyou bunco girls. I call you that because it seems that is the only time I get to see you all. I wish Bunco was every week....
Note: I didn't get a chance to take a picture at Bunco, maybe next time. Instead you get a pretty awful picture taken by moi while dropping a friend off. Lorinda's eyes are beautiful under those lids, and I really don't have 3 chins...or do I?
What is your husbands full name: Travis Larry Kidman
How long have you guys been together: See, its only the second question and I am stumped to find an answer. I'd say maybe 6-7 ish years...
How long did you date: Blah, this tag is getting harder. We didn't really date. You see when we met I had a "missionary" who I was determined to wait for. My second missionary for the record. So Travis wasn't in my plans. We met at work and I tried really hard to set him up with my friend. While totally failing at setting him up with my friend, we started flirting shamelessly for a long time. We would chat for hours after work, and before we knew it we were in love. So we never dated....we did things quite backwards.
How old is he: 32. Old fogey.
Who eats more: He used to but lately, due to his awesome mouth sores and sore throat, it seems to be me. (I don't enjoy it.)
Who said I love you first: Travis I'm sure. Though I'm sure I drug it out of him.
Who is taller: Travis
Who is smarter: Travis. No doubt.
Who does the laundry: Sadly, me.
Who does the dishes: We share this fun task. If I cook a good dinner, he usually cleans up.
Who sleeps on the right side of the bed: Travis does, but as soon as he leaves for work I slide into his side.
Who pays the bills: Travis. I am terrible with money.
Who mows the lawn: Travis usually does, but I enjoy it now and then.
Who cooks dinner: Me, I love to cook.
Who drives when you are together: Travis usually drives.
Who is more stubborn: Travis would say me, I say him. Go figure.
Who kissed who first: Travis kissed me first.
Who asked who out first: He kept asking, I kept telling him no. Then one day before ever dating we were in love. If you are wondering...I did wait till my missionary got home, just to be sure (I laugh as I type that because in my heart I was already sure.) Then we got married about 4 months later. 4 crazy months later.
Who proposed: Travis.
Who has more siblings: Travis does.
Who wears the pants in our family: Depends on the day. I do sometimes, he does sometimes. We make it work. (as Tim Gunn would say.)
What have I left out: (I added this question) Well, how about how much I jerked Travis around. Seriously it's amazing the man married me. He must have been able to see how good things could be...if I ever grew up! Oh, and the part where my family knew nothing about him. One day, when I was pretty deep in love, I brought him home to finally meet the rents, my brother and sil, my sister and bil, and all my neices and nephews. No pressure Trav...
I'll admit, our story is not really a fairytale. But it did end up pretty dang happy. Travis, if you are reading this, I love you. I am sorry that I was such a pain in your butt back then. And I am very happy that you will always be my Valentine!
I am tagging...
Heather-because I love you. And think you and Jody have a beautiful marraige.
Amanda-because I remember you and Scott falling in love so well.
Ashley-because you need to blog, even if it is at 2 am with Ayda crying. I love you.
Jill-because I think 3 ICON romances (me, you, and Amanda) will be fun to read about.

Sienna has been an easy baby. She is almost always happy. She loves to eat. She goes to bed at 9 pm and wakes up at 9 am and has a 3 hour nap everyday. She's heaven! A little angel.
As soon as I told her she could leave the corner she ran over to me and hugged me and said "I'm sorry mamma." And hasn't touched the stuffing since. I love my little Ennabug.

UPDATE: The nice little lady from the hospital (who must have heard the desperation in my voice when she called this morning), just called to say that he can now go in on Monday. Thank goodness, we are ready to see results!
