Our crazy life...

So lately we have just been livng our crazy life, with 3 boys its never a dull moment. Here are Jax and Dylan in my bathtub, they love taking baths in our bathtub. There have been a few times when we underestimated the bubbles, with jets a little goes a long way. We have had such a great time in our new house it has been so much fun. Its nice to have a place that we can call our own. We have began painting and I longed to do that for so long, but I have decided that it is a pain in the a$$. It is a lot of work and I definately have got that out of my system. Jaxon keeps saying when are you going to paint my room. And to be honest I am dreading when I decide to do that.

Here is our little Xander, he is growing up so fast, I think he is going to take off walking soon. Stands up to everything and eats everything off the floor. he has had a few pebbles of dog food I will admit, but he doesn't seem to mind. Poor kid. He has become quite the little thumb sucker too, feeding him is such a process after every bite in goes the thumb and it must be pried out before the next bite. Needless to say it gets all over. His eyes have turned brown and I have to say that I am excited because finally I have a child with my eye color. That sounds dumb, but my other kids have blue eyes and neither me or freddie has blue eyes. So I am glad to have a little brown eyed kid.

Lately we have been going to the movies and surprisingly all 3 kids have been great. It is a fun experience that we all enjoy. Sometimes getting out can be pretty hard, so this has been great.
Last I cannot believe christmas is right around the corner! I have been panicing the last few days because my mind has gone blank, what to get the kids. They need nothing, but are wanting EVERYTHING!

Halloween Fun!

So I am the worst mom ever when it comes to taking pictures when things are happening, I used to be so good at getting a shot of everything that happens. Now I am lucky to get pictures of events. I tried, but it is too hard. Maybe next time huh. I have been frantically sewing, I made all the kids matching pjs like the ones Xander is wearing and I planned on getting all 3 of them together, but try to get 3 boys to sit still at one time.

Here is our little baby pirate, he was soooo cute, we all dressed up as pirates, but Dylan insisted on being a fire fighter. So we let him win. Two year olds can be pretty stubborn.

Here is our other little pirate, the kids were so tired, but they had some candy and were ready to go.

Dylan loved dressing up in his fire fighter costume and he sure looked cute in it.

I made our costumes and bought the other boys, we decided not to spend a fortune on costumes, they do look home made but what ever works right.
I hope every one had a happy halloween. We got enough candy to last a lifetime. My kids had candy for breakfast, isn't that terrible.

The Hoagle Zoo!

We went to the zoo last month, we had been waiting to go for about 2 months and I was so excited, I thought the kids were going to love it, since they love animals. It was fun, and there were a few things the kids really enjoyed like running around and looking at the snakes. But as far as the other animals they just layed there. Here is the baby giraffe, it never got up, and the baby elephant layed flat and didn't even move.

Of course eating ice cream and snacks was fun!

The pengins were so hungry they just stood there and looked at the door. How sad huh.

Luckily we went on a day that was warm, because the next few days we were up there it just rained. Xander was so good he just sat in his stroller most of the time.

Look at those kids in the background, right at the end Dylan pooped and it was diarrhea so it got all over his shorts. We never pack extra clothes for him so he just wore his diaper around for the last little bit. Is that white trash or what.

These things are so wierd, Dylan couldn't get over it that he walks on his knuckles it was so cute.

Here is one of the big giraffes, they sure were big, and you could get pretty close so it was neat for the kids.

Everyone had fun riding the merry-go-round.

And last one of the elephants, they were pretty cool, stinky but cool to see up close. That was our big adventure for the summer. I tell you what sometimes it can be pretty exhausting to take 3 kids places. I felt like every restaurant we went in people were like oh great a bunch of kids.

So it has been forever since I have posted and there has been so many things that have went on. I guess so many milestones have passed. Here is Xander, he is almost 7 months old, he is crawling, rolling, just being the cutest baby. I just decided to post a few random pictures of everyone. This next one is at Pirate Pizza, it was Jax 4th birthday, can you believe it my baby is 4. This was alot of fun I think we had just as much fun as the kids did. And those were probably the most expensive swords:)

Xander got blessed in august, and both the boys got a shaved head from their aunt in hair school. I was pretty shocked when I saw them, but it has grown on me. Xander was such a little cutie in his little suit. He just sat up there and cooed during the whole thing it was cute.

This was the 4th of July, it was hotter than hell, but the kids had fun. We have never celebrated in St. George, so we figured we would take a turn here. There were some pretty fun things to do here other than the weather was so rediculous. They let the fireworks off right behind our house so we had a front row seat and that was great.

Once again the big 4. He is getting so big some of the things he says are so funny. For instance the other day we were driving to St. George and he said "why dont we have a hanna ontana on our car?" I was thinking what? Did he se someone with a hannah montana sticker. We were up north and it was the Hannah Montana concert and we saw a lot of crazy fans. I said cause we don't want one. He said "Why" I was like I don't know and finally he said you know that hanna ontana on the front of the car. Turns out he was talking about the antana, apparently our car doesn't have one on our hood. It was so funny.

I just took this one today, I had to post cause it was so cute. I am so lucky to have these boys. Someone told me you make your life happy if you are happy, and I AM HAPPY!!! Who wouldn't be with these cuties.

I wanted to post a few recent pictures of Xander, he is turned into quite the little fatty pants and he is smiling and talking like crazy. It is so cute I just love this age. I have never had a kid this fat it is so crazy. But I love it he is such a cutie pie.

Excitement in our life....

We recently took a trip to Zion's and it was alot of fun. I wish we we could have went on a hike or something, but the kids are a little small. It is so nice having a beautiful national park right in your back yard. We walked on a little trail and found a stream for the kids to play in and they loved it, they are such little boys, dirty and curious it is so cute.

What a cutie, he is growing up so fast.

Xander was such a good little boy, he slept the whole time, until we were ready to eat of course. Anyone who knows they can sense when you want to eat cause they do too.

Jaxon was playing Mr. photographer, it sucks because we never get any pictures together.

I have been a big slacker when it comes to posting. But I have been a little busy. Kids can be rather time consuming. I hadn't posted pictures for so long there has been a lot of new ones. Easter was great, I love easter its just fun, the kids had a blast and they wanted it to happen all over again. So here are a few pictures from easter.

Hopefully I will be posting more often. We have had alot going on and unfortunately this is at the bottom. But when I have cute pictures to post its fun.


We got our house! It has been such an experience, it is so nice. Honestly I never really thought I would have this nice of a house. I just love it I am going to post pictures soon, I'm just a big Slacker. I did want to get the boxes out of the way before I post. We have been working on our yard, well I haven't but my husband and his dad and brother have been, what a process, I wish I would have taken some before pictures, but its not close to done yet. But it will be so great and I will be glad to say I am so sick of red dirt in my house and all over the kids, its driving me crazy. Like I need any help.

Thank god I have a great sister that will take pictures of my kids and they are so cute why would I go somewhere else. I love you sis. I just love this first one the color and everything its so damn cute. This is Xander at 2 months, he is getting so big and sooo cute. He is smiling at things, I have to work hard for them sometimes but well worth it. Sorry sis I stole these, I know its lame of me, but he is so cute I just want to show him off.

Dylan turns 2!!!

On March 17th our little Dylan turned 2, he has been in the terrible stage for a while :) That weekend we went to Jumpin Jacks to celebrate, all my family was there. I think it was fun for everyone, no matter what age you are, grandpa and mom. Me being 10 days from giving birth I just sat on the sidelines watching. Dylan had such a blast, nobody could keep up with him he was running around like a crazy man. He went down everything and was not scared at all, he loved it. He is going to be our little wild man we are in for a treat. He must get it from his Dad!!

He had fun opening all of his presents, he put on a little show for everyone, he is a character. He got a bike which he loves he just sits on it when he goes outside, cause he can't ride it. He got so many other toys we don't even know what to do with, they are taking over our house. Thanks to everyone that came and helped with everything, I wouldn't have been able to do it without you.
Happy Birthday baby, we love you.

The story of life....

Well its been a while and I have been trying to get my pictures on my computer ready to post, life is pretty busy with 3 boys under 4. To get a second to play on the computer is almost impossible. The picture of me pregnant is one of the few pictures I have, but its so hard to remember what it was like I was like what the heck, so right before we left to the hospital inbetween contractions Freddie snapped one. I started having contractions around midnight, but I kept thinking they would go away, so I sat up watching TV, but they stayed and they were sporadic, not like 5 min apart, it would go 8 then 5, so I thought it was fake. I called my mom at 2 am and told her it was time. Her and my sister were on their way, I think they took their time cause I was not for sure. I decided to shower and get ready cause I was sick of looking like crap in all my delivery pictures, but while I was getting ready my contractions all the sudden got really bad. I was trying to finish getting ready I was dying, so I was like fred we have got to go. He called his mom and we left before she even got there, thats how bad it was.The nurse knew I was having contractions close so she checked me immediately and I was an 8 plus, she was like I don't think you will be able to have an epidural, I had always wanted to go natural, but the option of not being able to was too much, and I was hurting worse than I had remembered. It was so wierd everything happened so fast, my mom got there in great time and I got my epidural and it was a good one, I could totally move my legs it just decreased the pain a little, I could still feel everything. It made recovery so fast. Afterwards Xander could not keep his temperature up and he was kind of grunting while breathing, so they watched him close and drew a few labs, but he did good. And we both left the hospital the next day. We struggled with a name because we did not agree on everything. So we finally decided Alexander Eddie. And we have been calling him Xander.

So we were home for a few days and I took him in to check his bilirubin on Sat. and at 5 pm that night I get a call from our pediatricion he said he has a bed set up for us at the hospitial and we need to get there now. So of course I am bawling and worried. Meanwhile I am frantically packing a bag and trying to get a hold of my husband that was at work and I can't get him to answer. So we get to the hospital and he was starving and they were like don't feed him we will get formula, well it took quite a while and they were trying to start an IV on him so he was screaming and so I started bawling. I looked like a total idiot, but it is so sad when your baby is crying and you can't do anything for him, especially when they are so fragile and little. But he was such a good boy it was kind of sad, he just laid so good under the lights, and he hardly ate at all. Anyways we were there for 24 hrs, and his bili came down so fast so that was good. It was nice to be home, and my other boys were glad too.
So two weeks later we are all doing just fine. It has taken a little getting used to for Jax and Dylan, but I think they are getting better. Poor Dylan had a bit of a rough time. Its hard when they are all demanding your attention. If it hadn't been for my mom I probably would be crazy by now. She has helped me for the last 2 weeks and I cannot thank her enough, I have the best mom and sister ever, well I have the best family ever. My grandparents were here for a week helping me and keeping me company. I cannot list all the help I have gotten, everyone has been great.

Sorry for the longest post ever...

Baby Mattinson

The big brothers were very excited to meet the baby.
