It's been a while

I haven't posted in a little while. Life is pretty much the same. 

We've had a high school softball game
I know this is fuzzy but K caught a line drive and turned it into a double play. She's not even an infielder. She the catcher! Way to go babe!
A birthday sleepover

R had 2 friends sleepover for her bday. She's so easy to please and really took care of things herself. Dad was out of town, and I stepped off a stool really hard on my bad leg and had to rest the whole night. 2 girls was plenty, by the way!
Lots of rain
A loves to run around in the rain. He gets kinda Crazy and R loves to film him!  We  (I) have been so thankful for the rain. It is needed and we are blessed for it!)
The Dr telling me that it could take 3-4 months for my soft tissue damage in my ankle to heal (I guess when I broke my leg, I dislocated my ankle and tore every thing and anything in my ankle, too. It's still swollen) Now I have to find a good, inexpensive physical therapist!

Not much else, just day to day. I have started helping out at my dad's store again. So it's nice to get out once in a while, since I still can't drive!

Happy Birthday Rebecca!

8th birthday in Hawaii! Oh how I wish we were still there!

(it was yesterday, but I did too much and I got pooped!)

My 3rd baby turned 9 yesterday. Her last year in the single digits! Rebecca is such a sweet, caring, loving person. She is always thinking of others. She doesn't like to clean her room. SHe is very artistic. She gives awesome foot rubs. With lotion, too. Sometimes I think she gets the short end of the stick. She's kinda the middle child. She keeps to herself. She loves to go out back and create all sorts of recipes from the yard. She loves to watch the wedding shows with me. (no she won't be having a platinum wedding any time soon!) She loves to watch cooking shows, too. I need to let her cook/help more in the kitchen. I need to teach her to clean up after, too. We love Rebecca so much. She is such an amazing part of our family. 

Her silly papa singing to her!

Happy 9th birthday my beautiful girl!

Ok, so I didn't keep up with the love posts. It doesn't mean I don't love people or things. I do, I'm just trying to get back into my life that I haven't been apart of for 6 weeks. (I know no one is judging, I'm just making myself feel better.)

I did want to add a few more things/people that I love.....

I love the weather we are having. The rain is so welcomed. I love to see my girls get excited about a big beautiful rainbow in the sky. My husband, too.

This is a picture of the back yard while the rainbow was in the front yard!

I love my boy. I know he loves me cause he's grown out his hair cause I asked him to. It's so dang cute and curly. And we can play with it!

I love my oldest. She is the one who made me a mom. I love her strength and wisdom. I wish she believed in herself like we believe in her. I love that she is old enough to go to dances with a large group but yet not old enough to single date... (I don't think she loves that, though) 

(she's the cute short one, in the blue dress and grey sweater. It was the high school's winter ball)

I love my mother in law. It took some time, but I consider her one of my closest friends. I admire who she is and from where she came. She loves my children deeply and passionately. I miss her all the time!

I love my Rebecca. She is a very deep child. SHe always has been. She is a good friend to everyone. She is always willing to help. She is most creative, too. She loves to watch the Food Network with me - or by herself. I can't wait to see what she grows up to be!

I love my kids cousins. There are almost 16 cousins all together. We used to live 5 minutes from some. We all live apart now. But the love that they have for each other is still there. Even if they only see each other once a year, they pick up right where they left off. I hope it will always be that way!

I love my husband. I am so very honored to spend my eternity with him. He loves my so unconditionally, even when I love him conditionally! He puts up with so much. He has such a desire to right by his family. I believe in him and I know that we will make it through any thing that comes our way. I am proud of him for leaving the safe and venturing into the unknown. I am with you all the way, babe.

I love to laugh with him. We can laugh all day long. He gets me and I get him. He is an amazing father. I love how he loves our kids. He is an example to me. 

I love my parents. They have always been there for me. No matter what, no matter where. Their life together is an example of what to do and what not to do! Their love for each other is strong. Their posterity is large. I am so grateful to have my mom as my best friend. I want to be like her when I grow up!

A Give away!

I don't usually do this but I love these earrings. Go here to enter the giveaway. It's my first time at their site and I' think I'll be spending lots of time there! I even added a button on the side. I've never done that before either. I guess I better do it for all my friends with buttons, now!

Thanks for all your well wishes. It's gonna take time, but at least I'm up and about now. Soon I'll even be able o shower by myself :)

***WARNING**** you might be grossed out

I'm just saying. Don't say I didn't warn you. I just want to post for posterity (and if any of you really want to know what a bad leg break  and 4 weeks without shaving looks like)

If your squeamish.... don't go any further....

This is of my leg/ankle before anything was done for it and I was in excruciating pain!
(you can kinda of see a large lump where my ankle is)

This is right after the first cast came off. That's where the incision is from surgery.

This is after my leg was all cleaned up, still with the staples 
(those came out a few minutes later)

Here is a lovely picture of the new hardware that will make going through security at the airports lots of fun.

This is my pretty purple cast, that my 2 youngest autographed. I had 3 weeks with this baby!

This is after the removal of said purple cast. 
(If you want to be totally grossed out, click on the pic and see how long my leg hair is!)

These are my feet tonight. Can you tell which is which? I'm hoping the swelling goes down eventually, and he real color comes back, too.

Just a pretty little side view.

I can't wait until I can have a pedicure. Sometimes I gross myself out! Thanks to those of you who saw this trough. And, yes, it has not been easy or fun and lots and lots of pain and frustration! But I'll be ok.
