Carson's turning 2 years old this Tuesday, and since my parents were in town we had a little party for him on Saturday. He loved it! Especially the new slide we gave him for his birthday present. The kids slid down that thing for about 2 hours straight! So, I think we'll get our money's worth by the end of this week :)
And we got the coolest Thomas the Train cake with a little train that actually goes around the track, it was a HIT! I decided that I didn't want to be sitting at the store waiting for balloons to be blown up so I ordered a fun bunch from Brenda Green, a lady in Nate's parents' ward who does balloons. They turned out great, she does a great job, and they're still a'floatin today.
Despite the lack of smilage in any of the pictures, Carson had a blast!

Sadie came down with a stomach flu Tuesday night. We were up all night with her throwing up and diarrhea. I did laundry the next morning and couldn't believe how much there was from one long night! And it wasn't even close to being over. She was sick all day Wednesday, Thursday (I told her we'll celebrate Valentines Day next week) and is finally getting a little better today. She finally had ramen for lunch today after not eating since Tuesday night.
I was really worried about her last night, it is so hard seeing your little one so sick and not be able to do anything about it. I felt so helpless. After lots of prayers and pedialyte popsickles, I think she is on the mend.
There is one cute story from all of this yuckyness. Her sweet preschool teacher, Miss Lori, brought over all of the valentines last night. I showed Sadie all of the valentines one by one while she layed in bed. Miss Lori gave her a Fun Dip with her valentine and Sadie lit up when she saw it. She asked to see it, then she said "when I get better, this is what I want to eat." Then she layed down and snuggled with it. She has carried it around with her since then, and slept with it last night. I thought that was the cutest thing ever.

Note to self:
**No matter how tempting the sale is, don't ever take your 2-year-old to Old Navy again. There are balls there, and he cannot stand to sit in the cart when there are balls to be kicked, thrown, and chased around the entire store.
**Don't wash Sadie's favorite night gown the night Nate is at scout camp. She will throw a huge fit, you will be exhausted, and the combination will lead to a battle you will not have the energy to win.
**Buy a new cell phone battery A.S.A.P.!!! 20 minutes is just not long enough to talk to the outside world. (When my battery is finally charged, I can only make one phone call. Yesterday I had to choose between calling my friend or my mom. No woman should ever have to make that choice!)
**Buy more chocolate. Those cheesecake Hershey's kisses are delicious.

How long did you date?
How old is he?
Who said "I love you" first?
I said it first, and then Nate said "I love you alot" (like from Dumb and Dumber).Who is taller?
He's taller than me by about 6 or 7 inches.
Who sings better?
Definitely Nate, I can't sing. I can't read music either. I hate trying to sing unfamiliar songs in relief society because I have no idea what the next note is, yeah it probably sounds pretty sad.
Who is smarter?
We are always arguing about this. In reality we are pretty comparable, but I always beat him at scrabble and then try to convince him that it's because I'm the smarter one.
Who does the dishes?
Nate's pretty good about doing the dishes after I cook a meal. But, I do my share of dishes. Probably half and half.
Who sleeps on the right side of the bed?
I do, and no matter where we sleep (even in a tent) I still have to sleep on the right side. I think it's because when I'm pregnant I sleep on my left side and I hate facing someone while I'm sleeping, the breathing on eachother thing bugs me.
Who pays the bills?
Nate does, and he's great at it. I spend the money and he pays the bills. I think it's a good deal.
Who mows the lawn?
Nate does, I've never mowed a lawn in my life.
Who cooks dinner?
I do, and we like to eat at 5:00 as soon as Nate gets home.
Who is more stubborn?
Me, definitely me, I'm a red personality for sure. Nate's blue.
Who kissed who first?
Nate kissed me, I think. It was a good kiss, though :)
Who asked who out?
Nate asked me out (refer to question 1)
Nate proposed on March 15th, 2002 at his parents house. He had 4 dozen pink roses and music on. He asked me to dance and then after the song proposed. I was actually really surprised because it was sooner than I thought he would propose.
Who has more friends?
I think it's probably about the same, but I have more close friends than he does. I think that's a boy/girl difference.
Who has more siblings?Nate wins, with 6 (almost 7 with a new brother being adopted this spring). I have 5 kids in my family, we both have big families.
Who will I tag? Hmmm.... I think I would love to hear more about Natalie, Kirsten, and T.
