What's happenin' with the Davis Family
So, I know it's been a while since the last post, and I promised more postings...and...I'm REALLY sorry I lied. Will you forgive me??? Truth is we haven't hooked up internet at our new place, that really isn't that new anymore, but I will have 1 online class this upcoming semester so we'll have internet within the next couple of weeks. Anyways, life in the Davis household has been busy and very eventful...where do I start?!?! First, I've switched to full time at the IRS and we're very glad that happened. The money is great and I'm quitting Taxworks, so I'll only have 1 job now, but that will be replaced with a full time school schedule, so not a whole lot of more free time. Probably less actually. But with the new job we were able to buy Jess a new car so that she could have her freedoms. Can you believe that we've been married for 4 years and have only had 1 car the entire time? Jess has been a good sport through it all, so she got the new car. We got her a Mazda CX-9(SUV) and it is really nice. It's white and a 2008, with low miles and we like to think we got a good deal, but who knows. This last week was pretty eventful also, but more so for Hayden. We had the opportunity of going camping at Palisades State park for a family reunion with my family and we had a great time. There was swimming in the lake, eating, golfing, eating, catching up with family, eating, games, eating...did I mention eating? Seems like that is all that goes on at family reunions. Anyways, for Hayden he had the grandest time playing with all the older cousins, but during those playing times he has managed to fall more than a hundred times that has caused bruises on his head, elbows, scrapes on his knees, and much more. Then on last Sunday, we had the opportunity of blessing Tanner along with his cousin Jackson(Wayne & Carina, who live in Zimbabwe and are visiting). We had a good time and all went well for Tanner that is. Hayden that morning decided to venture off and find mommies self defense mace spray(pepper spray) and test it out(it does say on the back of the can to test periodically). We happened to find Hayden behind the couch screaming that his face was burning and saw the can of mace next to him. We quickly rushed him upstairs and used an entire bottle of soap on his face and chest to wash off the spray. After a half hour of washing and rinsing, Hayden was back to his normal self. Then later that day, my brother was using a gyro ball that is meant to increase wrist and arm strength for various sports, and while he was using the gyro ball, Hayden happened to walk by and saw how interesting it was and tried to reach for it getting hit in the arm. Where the gyro ball hit his arm it created two burn marks and some blood blisters. He is Ok now, but he looks like he has gone through hell after last weeks encounters, but he is healing very well this week being away from all the family and cousins. Anyways, Tanner is getting big and we're working tirelessly to get Hayden potty trained, but seems like every step we take forward, Hayden pulls us back two steps. He will stay motivated for a couple of days and then stop for a week. Life is good, but very busy. I really will try to update more, but don't hold me to it. I hate to lie. Pictures to come soon.
