Eastern New Mexico Fair

Let me just start off by saying that this fair was no where near as good as the blackfoot fair, but Justin had SOOOO much fun and that made it fun for mommy and daddy! Justin has always been afraid of rides, even the little rides in the middle of the mall. Josh and I were determined to get him to ride something, so I told him that I would go with him on the Carousel. We were going to get our tickets when Justin saw this Dragon ride and said "Iwant to go on the Dragons!" OK, so daddy went on it with him, from then on he was hooked!

He named the Zebra Stripes, anyone seen Racing Stripes?

Addi was so good and patient!

Soooo Busy!

Between packing, moving, taking care of kids, finding a place to live, work, moving again, Blessing, and then chicken pox we have been so busy, so we are a little behind on our posts... not to mention that we didn't have internet up until last week. So here are a FEW posts to catch up.

4th of July in Nampa
Justin helping mom cook (this is our kitchen in our new place.) Sorry I forgot to flip the picture before I posted it... I'm (Jessi) still trying to figure out how to do it.

Our "pearls" :)

I love my big boy so Much!

Chicken Pox

Our poor Baby Addison got the chicken pox. It was awful! I think that that is one of the worst things to have to do as a mom is to watch my kids be sick and really not be able to do anything for them except for trying to make them as comfortable as possible until they get better. Which really how comfortable can you be with the chicken pox?! People say that it is better for kids to get them when they're younger... well I'm not sure it was any better for her to get them at 3 months rather then say 3 years. From the time of her first spots to the time that they were all healed was about 2 weeks and she was miserable, she couldn't sleep and she was so ichy. At 3 months you can't really explain to her that they will go away soon and that you will feel better and please baby try not to scratch. But we did make it through and thankfully Josh or Justin (neither one has ever had chicken pox) didn't get them!
