Today we woke up to a scary scene.. Hunter woke up before us, got out of his room (he has a gate on his doorway because we have stairs, but lately climbs out to hang with us).. he has a pill in his mouth, and two in his had.. Husband realizes it's his multi-vitamins.
We I begin to panic.. took him straight to the ER not bringing the bottle with, it was the last thing on my mind. Had x-rays, no particles in his stomach. They drew blood, this was the FIRST time Hunter EVER had a needle in him, we dont vaccinate. He was watching at first with no problem, until she poked him, then he started to freak but wasnt as bad as I had expected. The girl who did it.. for some STUPID reason, went in from the side.. then she of COURSE (because she went in from the side).. misses his vein that was clear as DAY bc the veins are so little.. so shes going in and about in the needle hole, trying to find the vein.. so Hunter is freaking out even more.. I'm getting insanely ticked off because this moron doesn't know how to properly do her freaking job, and left him with this swelled bruise, which isn't SO swelled now.. there is a little knot but not noticable in the photo.
but, his blood work came back clear, his iron was actually low. So he is okay! these were husbands multi-vitamins, and WHY they were in arm's reach I don't know.. we just have to learn from it, and be thankful Hunter is okay.

So after seeing someone use a "seamless paper" backdrop.. I had to try it out.. hey it's cheap anyways. I have to admit.. maybe I'm just spoiled with Vinyl Coated Canvas.. but, I am just not a HUGE fan of the seamless paper.. I have to deal with light differences on the paper that I can correct in photoshop.. but it is a hassle.. but I do like it, it's a really cheap alternative.. I just love the vinyl coated canvas more!
SO we did a test with my Hunter.. he was actually willing to sit still long enough to actually get quite a few shots!

So Husband and I were checking out our map to plan..
It's going to take us AT LEAST 9 days to get from MI to CA.. we can only drive 5-6 hours a day because of the kids, well.. mainly because of the baby.. Hunter is able to go 10+ hours but he doesnt eat as much as my little Heifer does LOL!
Then, we plan to stop in Texas and Arizona.. and Nevada as well.. to stay 1 full day. Minneapolis is during our route.. we went through there last year and stopped at Mall of America.. but we will skip staying an extra day as I really don't want to shop.. (oddly lol)..
In Texas we will be meeting up with our friend Caitlin who has a son from Hunter's Playroom who we met last year, and just so happens a friend in Van's Playroom lives in the same area.. so we will be meeting up with her as well, and hopefully another friend who lives a couple hours away.
In Arizona, is my family.. so I would like to stay 1 full day with them to visit..
& Nevada is another friend from Van's Playroom and hopefully meeting up with ANOTHER friend fromhis playroom who happens to be visiting Vegas the same time we should be there
here is our frightening looking road trip

I LOVE Van's Eyes!!! They have been getting lighter and lighter, right now they are pretty blue.. but they could easily turn green or hazel.. for sure they will not be brown like my husbands, I'm pretty sure looking at his eyes, thats a given lol!
I am so excited to have a bright eye'd baby! Now I only wish he had black hair!! but brown and bright eyes is awesome too!!!!! and to make this all even better, his eyelashes have gotten so long!! He gets those from his daddy! this pic isnt best to show off how long they are but you can semi see it!
daze into his eyes with me!

okay, so that's not what they say when you bowl.. but I'm not sure what they say when you bowl, if anything at all lol, so just go with the flow!
We took Hunter bowling again tonight, for the second time ever! He just loves it! And it was really nice because it was all about him, and not baby.. so he can have him and mommy & daddy time! It was really nice!

I have always wanted to do this shot, but didn't have the rings until now! Idealy I would have rathered this shot when he was brand new, we are 2 months behind so it's okay, better now than never!
though, I did have to work for this shot lol! Luckily he was very much asleep though once I started to position his feet he was moving around.. out of about 20 shots before he had enough, I got only ONE use-able shot! thankfully!!

No, she isnt so much.. she can be, but not if you have food anywhere, and the minute you get up and walk away.. shes after it!
but her name is Angel, so it sounded fitting lol!
I just wanted to take a picture of her, she is 13 years old now, and I havent taken a picture of her in probably a year now. So I figured it's about time!

Okay, so.. we have been married, almost two years now. and just now getting our wedding rings.
why, you may ask, are we just now getting wedding rings after almost been married for 2 years.
Well, let me tell you why!
i now, understand why they say marriage first, then home, then kids. because once you have a child, even just ONE child, you can not afford anything else! I'm very grateful that my mother in law, gave us a gift card to a jeweler (that's a word right??) for christmas to get wedding rings!
okay so, they aren't the most match-iest. but husband wanted a band that was a little more masculine, and frankly, if they had a brides version to his, i would have totally snagged it!! im so jealous of his!! but, i looove mine!! I am not a jewelry person, at ALL... I wanted something very thin, that i would forget was even there after a few days, and i found it!.. I am in love with the rings!

Indoors of course! Hunter really likes this fishing game, he even tried giving one of the little poles to Vander, who held on to it for a couple of seconds before letting go.
And of course, Hunter is a cheater in games, he gets it from his mama! LOL

I woke up this morning to an Ow, followed by crying, then looking for help.
I jumped out of bed so quick, open our bedroom door that was not fully shut, see Hunter standing in our living room crying and holding his lip..
My first thought was, why are you out of your room (he has a gate on his doorway because we have stairs, but recently he just climbs up and over as he pleases, but he has always stayed in in the morning until someone got him)
second thought was, what was he doing/did to get hurt.
third was to check it out, I see a scratch and thought no biggie, checked under his lip to make sure his teeth were okay.. no bleeding anywhere..
got him breakfast.
About 5 minutes later I see he has a fat lip. But not your orindary fat lip.. it's right under his nose where the scratch it, it's all swelled and knott like.
poor little fella! it's larger than it looks, but he wouldn't stop puckering his lips lol.

Well, we are starting a new year! YAY! Just except that everyone at some point this year be one more year older, and if your a child it makes a HUGE difference!
Which is why I wanted to make this blog and do a Project 365. I want to be able to look back at these photos in the years to come because my little boys change so much so quickly! NOT FAIR!
I am pretty motivated to do this every day, with posting a new photo each and every day. Don't expect to see each and every one manipulated like the one I'm about to post, I did this one mainly for my header but also the last day of the year's photo will also be this way but with updated photos.
Anyways, introducing my Messy, and Crazy Bunch!
Hunter (2), Vander (2 Months), and Husband Duc
