More birthday pictures!

Happy 3rd Birthday Colton John!

My "baby" turned 3 on March 23rd, its hard for me to believe he is already 3, where did the past 3 years go, and why did they go so fast?! I guess you never understand when someone tells you "they grow so fast" what that means until you have a child of your own and you then realize they do indeed grow "so fast".
Colton had a good start to his 3rd birthday but it didnt end so well, after picking him up from daycare, we headed over to the store did a bit of shopping, and when we were leaving the parking lot, a lady backed right into my car. nothing big, just need to get a new bumper. got home and he started screaming his stomach hurt, it took me a good few minutes to try to calm him down, next thing i know, he is puking everywhere, all over me, so i handed him off to dad so i could clean up, and seconds later in is puking all over carson too. he continued to cry for a while, and kept telling us his stomach hurt, we called the doctor just to be on the safe side, they were pretty worried since he did not have a fever or any other symptoms and that it had come on all of a sudden so they wanted us to come right to the peds office we went at 6pm at night.... they ran some test, had him pee in a cup and determined they had no clue what was wrong, told us to go home, get him to try to sleep and if it continued to call them and we would go from there. on our way home, the puking started again, and that is pretty much how the rest of his birthday night went, throwing up. i felt so bad for him. Luckily, he was feeling much better by the next afternoon and we celebrated his birthday the next day with dinner with nanni and pappa and uncle Thomas and Red Robins. Unfortunately, that night was moms turn to get sick, and today is Carson's turn, and it just so happens to be his birthday today. :( not a good week in the Widmer household. Hopefully we will all be back to normal by next week.
We did however, get to celebrate Coltons birthday with his friends at Pappy Pizza last weekend. he had a Buzz light year brithday party. The kids all had a great time playing and eating pizza. Thank you to those of you who made it to his party!

Happy Birthday Colton John, we LOVE you very much

she works hard for her money....

Lots of changes happening in the Widmer household. I got a job offer for an attorney's office that was part time, i had my first day last was horrible! the guy was a jerk, I lasted one day, and quit! Then I was offered a job at a hair salon as well, but i turned it down for the job i am not working at. My dad and brother in law Matt hooked me up with a job at HSW Builders, doing part time administrative work. I am only working part time, my hours are all week 8-1. it works out perfect, so I can still have the afternoons to play with Colton, and also still care for Dominkick, the little boy i have been watching at night. Colton will be going to our friends Valerie and Jayson's house during the day, its great b/c they have 3 kids, 2 of which are Coltons age so he will have lots of fun playing with Ella and Clayton.

Carson has gone back to work finally, hopefully it will be for more than a couple of weeks, but it sounds like they will be going down to CA to work for a month or so... I was hoping to go down and spend some time with family, but now that i am working, i do not think that will be happening.

We got an offer on our house a couple of weeks ago, so now it will just be a waiting game, we have to wait on the bank to decide if they will except it or not ,IF they do, we have a closing day of June 10th. I am very sad to leave, i love our house, and our yard, but I know that it is what is going to be best for us.

Sunday we are celebrating Coltons 3rd birthday! its a Buzz Lightyear party. I will post pictures next week after the party.

Colton went on his first trip out to the woods with daddy and papa to go shooting, he had such a great time. He geared up in his camo clothes and told me he was going hunting and was going to kill a big elk. :) (sorry, lil man, its not hunting season) he was stoked! Carson said he did great shooting and even hit a target too. On the way home, Papa let colton help him drive down some of the dirt roads, he loves to help drive. :) he is getting so big. Carson can not wait until fall when its elk season to take Colton up to Elk Camp and take him hunting for real.
Dont worry, the safety was on the gun in the picture of him holding it. :)

lots of birthday fun

Our sweet niece Bella turned ONE this past weekend. we can not believe how fast the past year has gone. Tanna and Matt had her birthday party over at our house, that way there was plenty of room for the kids to run and play in the back yard. They had so much fun playing in her new cool tent she got. The best part of the party was watching her eat her cake. Tanna normally does not give her sweets, so she didnt know what to do when they placed her birthday cake on her highchair... after a while of playing in the frosting and pretending to wash her hands in it, she finally got a taste of it in her mouth and figured out how good birthday cake was! she was covered from head to toe in pink frosting and chocolate cake! Good thing Uncle Carson had a nice warm bath waiting for her.
Happy Birthday Bella, we love you. and thank you for letting us help celebrate your big day!

Also, Happy Birthday to my best friend Krystal, her and Bella share the same birthday! love ya!
