All because of a little gas!

I took my dog Kozmo (aka Koz-ee-mo) into the vet to get groomed & also get checked up because he has had the most rancid gas ever! So I dropped him off Tuesday morning, expecting to go pick him up at 1:30pm. I get a call at 10am & miss it. So I call back, thinking he is done early. They say they need to discuss a few things with me, but will have to have the tech call me back, and it will be about 10 minutes conversation. Now I am scared. I may not express how much I love my dogs & a lot has changed since having my kids. But they were my first babies & I wouldn't want anything bad to happen! So I wait anxiously for the call. And finally get it about ten minutes later. They said that he has a lump on his prostate & its larger than it should be, he has a cist on his eye that needs to be removed & he has bad teeth. They suggested he be neutered immediately  & have the cist removed at the same time. After 2 weeks we will have to have his prostate reexamined & if it hasn't gone back to normal he will need an ultrasound, then most likely have it removed & some chemo therapy. Eek. Lets hope getting him neutered will fix the problem! But I am glad his gas got so bad, or else I never would have thought to take him in!
Isn't he just so ugly he is cute? Also he is obese & has to take a few pounds off! He weighs 36 pounds & at top weight shouldn't weigh more than 25! Our female Bostons weigh 12 lbs. & 20 lbs. He is huge to say the least. So no more puppies for Mr.Kozmo! And we get to pick him up Thursday morning. Hope it all turns out well! I know he is "just a dog", but he is my dog!

Life as of now!

Well not a whole lot has been going on. Just work , cleaning house, paying bills, and taking care of the two cutest 3 year olds ever! I can't believe how much Kenidi & Kiyah are children now. They talk back, argue, correct me, sing, play house & barbies & adsorb everything we say & do like a sponge! And of course, I think, they are the smartest 3 year olds I have ever met! (But I am sure most people think the same about their kids!) I recently looked into putting them into a dance class, It would be once a week for an hour. I really think they would love it. And we also have been thinking about pre school. So many decisions! It use to be that all the decisions I had to make was which diapers to put them in & which formula to buy. Now that they are not babies anymore I guess there are so many things they can do!
     Right now the girls are so into the movie Monsters Inc & all the Shrek movies. We recently took them to see the new Shrek movie & they did sooo good in the theater. I was shocked to say the least. They also got some new big girl bikes & Brandon attached some car seats to them so they could take their babies for a ride! So cute & sweet. 

    As for me, I have lost 10+ pounds, which isn't a lot when I still have 30 more to go!  It is a start though. I just wish I had the energy to work out more, the motivation to turn down all the tasty food, and the talent to cook the healthy food! But I am SO baby hungry. Its all I think about. My original goal was to get down below my pre twins weight, and then try again. With my Polycistic Ovarian Syndrome(PCOS) the more weight I loose the better my ovaries will work. Also my blood sugar & insulin levels will be normal! And I wouldn't have to take glucophage, which gives me horrible intestinal issues.  But the main problem is that with PCOS it is super super hard to loose weight & super super easy to gain it. It is so unfair! Hopefully I will be able to at least get 15 more pounds off and then we will start trying again. 
   On a more positive note. Angie & I took all the kids to Antelope Island & got a few cute pictures! I thought I would end this post with those!
                              Here is a rare picture of me & the girls!  And the rest are of Angie, Me & all the kids!

San Fran action!

Well I am back from San Francisco! I had so much fun. But I was so happy to come home and hug my girls! I have so much I could talk about, but this post would go on forever! So I thought I would just share a few photos & stories (which fyi will still be pretty long! But I could go on & on & on ect..)

Here I am at the Golden Gate Bridge! The whole time I was there all I could think about was the documentary The Bridge and in particular a young man from it named Gene. The documentary is about people taking their lives by jumping from the bridge. So the bridge had a different feeling for me then it probably should have. I couldnt stop thinking about it! I should have waited to watch that until I got home!

 Here I am at Alcatraz in a cell.  Its kind of a dark picture but its one of the better ones. I had this habit of trying to look like a tough inmate every time I got my pic taken! We had a really good time here, although I didnt feel like it was to haunted & we even took the night tour!
Here is My Mom, Sisters & Me at the "ocean". I was told several times by local people it didnt count because it is technically a Bay. But whatever I still think it counts!!!! But I did go see the "real" pcean the next day in Monterery Bay. And I made a complete idiot of my self & ran into the ocean waste deep. Yeah I am a smart one. BUT my sisters offered to buy me dinner if I would, so I did. Then they ended up having to buy me new pants since we were 2 hours from our hotel & had to go out to dinner! haha

We also went to Muir woods. I was surprised the trees werent wider but I guess red woods are known for their height! We had a good time though.
We went on a bus tour of all the big spots in San Fran, one of the best was the "7 sisters" aka "painted ladies"
Its where the Full House show was based & the opening credits was filmed so we took an awesome pic of us reenacting the picnic theme & we sang the theme song for the whole tour group!
Our all time favorite part of San Fran is a little island over the Golden Gate called Sausalito. It just had all kinds of cool fun shops & we just loved walking all over that place! Here is a pic of the whole group in front of the fountain there!
One of are all time favorite movies is called Heart and Souls.We grew up watching it as a family. If anyone hasnt seen it you need to! Any who it was based in San Francisco & starred Robert Downy Jr. One of the main spots that the movie is based in is this green house sort of place (we always call it The butterfly conservatory even though thats not what it is) but we found it, its in Golden Gate Park! We just hung out there & listened to some people play bongos & drums. It was great!
Well I could keep going on but I will end it here for now! I am sure that I will blog some more in the future about it. I am just so happy to be home with my family again. BUT I am NOT so happy about work starting again on Tuesday. Oh well. Thats life right? Oh, I almost forgot. We took a bunch of mock engagement photos while we were there, but they are all on Angies camera so I will have to for sure share a blog of those. They are hilarious!

This was the best Easter so far with my girls. Previous years they've been to young to fully understand. But this year they were so excited! The "Easter bunny" hid their baskets & plastic eggs filled with candy. So when they woke up they ran all over the house gathering up the eggs. Then they found their baskets & sat on the couch & dissected every bit of it!
   After that they got all dressed up in their Easter gear & got their hair straightened. I am so jealous of Kenidi & Kiyahs hair, it is the perfect color with natural highlights & it is so shiny & beautiful. I wish I could have it on my head! Anyway, we drove out to Antelope Island to take some pictures. We drove all over trying to find the tall yellow grass from Rich & Michelles engagments( I think they look like wheat, but I have no clue what they really are)  Here is a pic below of what I was looking for-
The first beach we found, Brandon said we should drive down because it looked like what I was talking about & I of course objected. So we drove around for another 30 minutes & went back to that first beach & it was perfect! Guess I should have listened :) Now since I never seem to have any extra money to pay for a photographer, we just borrowed Angies nice camera,  paid the $9 daily fee to get in & took our own pics. I think they turned out pretty cute being that I am NOT a pro! Here are a few of my favorite.

I couldnt believe how well the cooperated considering the last time I tried this it did NOT go well!! This weekend we are going to go out & take pictures of my nephews at Antelope Island & maybe a few more of the girls :)

P.s. One week until San Fran!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm growing up !

I am growing up in more than 1 way! I let my girls go to the sand dunes without me this last weekend! This is a HUGE step for me. I was so so so stressed when they first left, I was crying & felt sick. But then once I heard they were there safely I was much better! And I knew they were in good hands.
    The other way I am growing up is I turned 24 last Saturday! Which really isnt a big deal, but I had a great bday! I went & got my hair CHOPPED off, literally. Its super short but its nice to have something new. Here is a pic, sorry its bad quality & I am not photogenic so this is me trying!

After the hair appointment I went shopping shopping & shopping with my mom & sister Angie. Which I never do so it was super fun. I also sold BOTH the remaining puppies to this awesome couple. I am so happy they will get to go to the same home! The only downer is I have to keep them for 2 more weeks. The bad thing about that is Kenidi & Kiyah do not know what no means when it comes to the puppies. It gives me a headache how many times & can say no, and put them in time out & yell & they still wont stop touching them!!! This is going to be a looong 2 weeks!
    To end my birthday Angie, Chas & I went to dinner & a movie. We actually walked into Red Robin , & walked out because we wanted to go to Roosters to harass my brother Wes(he works there). I think we were successful! And the movie we saw was Hot Tub Time Machine. It was pretty funny if you are into crude inappropriate humor like us!
    Hopefully my next post will be some super cute pictures me & Angie are going to take of all the kids at the union station for easter!
