Christmas

We had a great Christmas. We stayed in Fallon and spent time with neighbors and friends. Brody is growing up so fast. I am going to start a weight loss competition Jan 8th at my gym. I am pretty excited to finally get rid of this baby weight. I am using a daily calorie diary app on my iPod to keep track of my food. I think I will do pretty good. I also need to loss the weight so I can do my bike races this summer.

My NeW LiTtLe JoB

So I started taking care of a 2 month old baby on Monday. So that would mean today is only my 3rd day. Believe it or not it isn't that bad. If you don't know me very well I also have a 6 month old baby myself. So it feels as if I have twins maybe. I love it though. He is a really good baby and so is mine so it is working out. They both wanted to eat at the same time yesterday so I just put one in the swing with a pasifier and fed the other one.

Today I made my first attempt to take them somewhere. Bundled them up this morning at 8 am and went to the gym. Lacey came too and she was a good helper. Had a good time spinning, fed a baby before we left the gym and fed the other one after we got home. Now they are both sleeping.

Just a little note.

Lacey Riding her Bike

video

Lacey just learned to ride her bike. She loves it. She got a flat tire right after she learned. She has been going crazy waiting for us to get a new tube and fix it. Well last night we finally fixed it and we had to out at 8:00 this morning. She has preschool this morning at 10:00 or I would have taken her to the park, that we live close too.

Lacey also says hi to her none facebook cousins. Tyler, Adel, Tate, colton and Angie's kids. And I forgot to mention little Danny too.

Summer 2010


















So it has been a very long time since I have blogged. A lot has happened. Most important we had baby number 3. Brody Wayne Oldfield was born April 20th, 2010 weighing 4 lbs and 11 oz. He can 6 weeks early because my water broke. I was in the hospital for 5 days before he was born. He stayed 9 days in the NICU at the hospital in Idaho Falls. He did really well and was able to regulate his own tempature, and breath on his own right from the beginning. It took him about 8 days those to learn to eat on his own. Brody weighed in last week Sept 1st 2010 at 13 lbs, so he has grown a ton.

My kids did swimming lessons at the beginning of the summer. We spent almost everyday at the swimming pool in Idaho Falls. Gabriel can swim by himself now, and can even side breath some. He rolls over completely on his side and takes a breath. I love it. I am so proud of him. I was to get him into a swim teach next year.

Other big news!!! We moved 8 hours away to Fallon Nevada. It is 60 miles away from Reno and Carson City depending on which hwy you take. My husband got a job with the state of Nevada doing child protection. Today is his second day on the job. He seems to really like it. He is doing a lot of training, which he is greatful for. It has been a great blessing to get a job that is salary and benefits. My husband used to have to work about 60 hours a week just to get paid for 35 hours. He only got paid when he was billing a client. It was tough. Especially when his clients routinely didn't show up.

Gabe seems to really like school. If he doesn't come home crying, I take that as a good sign. He came home crying a few times in Shelley Idaho last week from school so I guess he is doing good. He made a friend in his class the first day that lives on the same road as us. He wants to be able to walk home togeather, but I have had to pick Gabe up because he got a little lost before.

We feel spoiled in our new home. It has some really nice features, like the jacuzzi tub, the large kitchen sink, the extra furniture the owner left, the built in shelves and gas fire place, granite island counter and wood floors. Check out the pictures. Lacey is modeling the house. I am keeping busy organizing the house and unpacking some odds and ends. We are mostly all unpack though. I will love the roads in Nevada for cycling, I have been for one ride and it was beautiful and very very smooth roads. We went to church Sunday. the ward was small but really friendly. We felt like celebraties because everyone wanted to meet us. The bishop told my husband that they had been praying for young families to move into the ward.

Enjoy the pictures.

Good times


Subject: Good times


Gabe and cousins. Had a good time in blackfoot. This post kind of came from my mobile phone. I am suppose to be able to do it directly from my phone but Blogger is having some problems so I sent this message to my email and then forwarded it to my blog. Maybe now I can have more pictures. Be warned however that they will be low quality. Hang in there and thanks for your support.

It's your Lucky Day

So I am going to reward all of you people who look at my blog by sharing my secret to the world's best scrabbled eggs. Gabriel begs for my eggs.

OK.....the secret ingredients are sour cream and mozerella cheese. and if you don't care about calories you can fry them up with some melted butter in the skillet.

ENJOY

Family update

Husband just picked up a 3rd day of counseling in Pocatello. I am 28 weeks pregnant out of 40 and feeling great. Gabriel recently got to sub in a basketball game and he made 3 baskets (this was his first basketball game ever, it was a blast to watch him) Lacey is growing like a weed and making friends in Shelley. I recently read the Dave Ramsey book so we are trying to live on a tight budget so we don't let our money fall through the cracks.

OUR RECIPE GARDEN: Bajio's Green Chile Chicken Quesadilla

OUR RECIPE GARDEN: Bajio's Green Chile Chicken Quesadilla

so I made these last night they were really good. I don't get to eat at Bajio's like I used too so I tried to make my favorite eating out dish.

I left a ton of ingredients out of the chile chutney sauce but it was still good.

I cancelled my home phone and I am not getting more minutes on my cell phone until 2 months so I could use some computer conversations.
