Events of the day

My phone quit working about 2 weeks ago and I have had such a hard time getting someone from the cable company to come out and fix it. I had two previously scheduled appointments, but they failed to show up both times. I was furious! But, short of canceling the service, there was nothing that I could do. It’s hard to get a satellite signal here in the winter, so I really want to stick with cable. They finally kept their appointment today and it was fixed in no time. What a relief. Now it’s on to bigger problems, like getting the roof fixed.
I also signed up for my YMCA membership today. I am so excited about it. It will be nice to have a place to drop the kiddos off and exercise. Maybe I can loose my post pregnancy pooch now. The have an indoor swimming pool so we can swim year round. We went today and Kayleigh and Blake both loved it. Kayleigh starts her swimming lessons next week.
Oh, Blake tried to fish toilet paper out of the toilet for the first time today. Lovely, huh. I need to teach Kayleigh to flush.

I realize that I have made two posts and not really even mentioned Blake. Here is our busy little guy. He is crawling around, pulling up, and getting into everything. He chases me all over the house. I am convinced that he would be closer to walking, but he keeps hitting his head on the wood floors whenever he tries anything new. He really loves his daddy and gets so excited whenever he sees him. He always wants to be in the bathtub, and never wants to be in his car seat. I am really looking forward to Kayleigh starting preschool so we can have sometime with just the two of us.

Cupcakes and spaghettios with balls...

is what she wanted on her birthday. I could have cleaned the kitchen before taking pictures, but Adam had 10 minutes till he had to leave.

Kayleigh's Birthday

Kayleigh’s Birthday was on Wednesday. She was so excited about it. I forgot her presents were in the back of the car and she accidentally saw one of them on Tuesday. The rest of the day I kept hearing, “I want my pony mom. My pony is in the car”. It was really funny. Lets just hope that I don’t blow the whole Santa thing this year too.
Her birthday party is going to be today. I am going to spend the rest of the day running errands and picking up the house.
Adam’s schedule is really terrible right now. I feel so sorry for him. He has been scheduled to work 6pm to 6am all this week. He usually doesn’t make it home till after 7. He tries to be in bed by 8-9, but Kayleigh misses him so much that she has a hard time letting him sleep. He is up again b 2 and back at the hospital by 6. Today it gets especially bad. He works until 2:30, and then the party starts at 5. He gets to sleep over night, and has to be back to the hospital by 6 am. Then he works all day on Sunday until Monday around noon. Tuesday will be his first day off in 3 weeks. We are all pretty excited about it.
I still haven't figured out how to post pictures yet. When I do I will post pictures of the birthday girl, and cute little Blake.

After several suggestions from friends, I have decided to finally start my own blog. I am so far away from all of my family and friends; I thought this would be a great way to keep everyone updated on what we are up to.
Adam and I are currently living in Rochester, Minnesota So far we really like it here. The summer weather has been really mild, and I am enjoying being in a small town after being in Houston for 5 years. Adam has just started his first year of residency at the Mayo Clinic. I am staying at home with our two kids, Kayleigh (4) and Blake (8 months).
This week we are getting ready for Kayleigh’s 4th Birthday on the 22nd. I decided that having a party at home would be too much this year, so we are having it at a local pizza place that is like Chucky Cheese this Saturday. She is so excited about it.
Well this is it for my first post. I will try to upload some pictures as soon as I can
