EAR INFECTIONS........................

My poor baby Caden has chronic ear infections. We have been to the doctor at least once every month since he was 4 months old. I have tried everything. I saw different doctors, different medicine, and different ways to feed him......... Nothing worked! This last week was for sure the worst. He was waking up every 3-4 hours just crying and nothing I did helped him.

So.......long story short welcome to my pharmacy. This does not include all of the anti-biotic that he was on every 2 weeks. After realizing that my son cannot be on anti-biotic for the rest of his life I went else where........out of all these options what do you think worked best?

YEP! Alternative medicine, I went to the health food store and spilled my guts. I was given medicine to help build back up his immune system, I was given a better vitamin, and the MIRACLE was the garlic drops for his ears. It has made such a big difference, and it has only been 2 days. So I am giving a shout out to Good Earth health food store for saving us!

Do any of your kids have ear infections? What did you do, I would love to know!

Oh, how I LOVE Thanksgiving!

Well martha strikes again!
A job is never half done when it comes to my mom.
She worked so hard. Everything tasted so good and looked so dang cute!

It made for a fun filled, but busy day when you have family on all sides that live with in 15 min. of eachother. It gets kind of crazy when we are running from party to party trying to make sure that we see everyone, but we wouldn't have it anyother way! Our day started at Timpanogos playing our annual turkey basketball. We went to Aaron's aunt Cindy's at 1:00, My family's at 3:00, and then games and fun at Grandma Louders at 7:00. Here are some pictures from the day.

.................JUST ME & MY DADDY.............



On this Thanksgiving day I just wanted to let all of our family and friends know how grateful we are for each of you. We love you so much and are grateful to have you in our lives!

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

....I got tagged

I have found a new sport that I regret not playing in high school. Aaron and I play on a coed volleyball team in our ward and I love it. I also play with just the women. It is a really fun game that I think I would have liked better than softball. I still do not know all the rules. I am very aggressive, and in basketball I could kind of run a muck, but volleyball is a little more structured. I think some people get annoyed, but hey I am learning.

If you have not noticed I love photography. I am very much an amateur photographer, but it's a passion. I love being behind the camera capturing every moment. I have much to learn. I have done a few weddings here and there. I have done a few family photo's here and there, and most of all my poor son every chance I get. I am getting together my photo blog so keep your eyes peeled!

I am a touch oriented person. I love to cuddle. I communicate with touch. I need kisses and hugs constantly, when he leaves, when he arrives, and then I steal a few everyonce in awhile when he is home. Even in the blazzing summer when it is too hot to cuddle, I have to at least touch toes. You can imagine how insane I went this last summer when we were apart for 2 months......ahhhh! Luckly my baby gives good hugs and kisses. I LOVE YOU BABE!

Somedays I wish I was capable of having a litter of children, if I were promised they were all going to be like Caden I think I would do it. I love being a mother. It brings me such joy to watch them learn and grow. I have recently thought a lot about the fact that his future lies in my hands. So I need to lay off the blogging, turn off The View, and read my scriptures more! Maybe 2 out of three. I can give up The View, Whoopie bugs anyways. Really Caden is such a good little guy. When he was about 4 months old I had a feeling that I needed to take him to the doctor. He would laugh and play all day, take pretty good naps, but then his nights were not good. He was up every few hours and I couldn't figure it out. I took him to the doctor and he had double ear infections, a fever, and croup. We were all shocked. He is just a very well tempered baby. Aaron says 4 or 5 kids. I guess we will work on the one we've got and go from there.

I have never been a big fan of reading but since I joined a book club I have really enjoyed it. I still have not brought myself to read the twilight, new moon, ya da ya da. I think it is because my sisters keep hounding me to read it. Everwhere you go people are talking about it. I guess I will just have to read it. I am sure I will become an Edward lover like everyone else. Is that is even his name?

I am an education consultant for discovery toys. I was very interested in finding toys that would not only entertain Caden, but also help his development skills as well. These toys are amazing! They are a little more pricey but it is worth every penny. They have lifetime guarantees, they are not poisoned from China, and they help children enjoy learning. I am so exciting about getting the news out. I am doing parties, and you can also order online from me. Please let me know if you have any questions about certain toys, or if you want to host a party and earn some free stuff.

Thanks Linds, this was fun.

Write 6 things about yourself that others might not know. Then tag 6 people and leave a comment to let them know they have been tagged. It really is fun. Sorry to all of you who have tagged me and I didn't do it. I was new to the blogging world and didn't know what to do.

I tag...

Our day started out at the pumpkin patch
in Grandmas back yard.
Caden got his very own home grown pumpkin!

Then it was time to carve!


or how ever it goes?

They kept staring at eachother. I think they were a little confused.


Cadens cousins Gavin and Sydney

These were the refreshments that Martha Stewart...
I mean Grammie Nelson made for us. Isn't she good!

At Grandma Louders we made homeade rootbear
(speaking of Martha)
Caden wouldn't keep his hands out of the dry ice....Yikes!

FIRST TIMER! He was ready to go trick or treating with daddy!
