Please dont play with terds

This weekend has been fun thus far. Friday Wes got off work early so the three of us hung out all afternoon. It was great. Then my mom and Scott came over and Owen went to bed early so my mom and I watched a movie.

Then Saturday we got up and went to the zoo. After the zoo we went to Tara and Darin's. Tara, the kids and I went to some yard sales and then back to there house. Me, Tara, Darin and Wes were all playing a corn hole game when I looked over at Owen and saw that he had an Ellie Terd in each hand (Ellie is the dog) with a shit eatin grin on his face. I got him and grabbed him by the arms..freaking out..and shook the terds out of his hands. Then I got him in the house and washed his hands for like five minutes with lots of anti bacterial dish was pretty gross.

That was just about all the excitment for the weekend but trust me it was enough to last until next

Loves, hugs and kisses

So time just keeps ticking by and I just keep procrastinating, I am not sure why it is so hard for me to blog these days. I love it, its easy, its fun and helps me keep track of my life..along with all you faithful readers..I swear I will try to do better. I also want to start posting things in this blog..things about being a mommy, articles so on and so forth..just mommy stuff. I hope to start that soon. Until then lets go over what has been happening at the HOOGENBOOMS house.
First off Owen is getting so a matter of fact, he weighs in now at 27 Ibs and 2 oz..holy cow batman!!! He is so funny, for example: he likes to walk up to people and point at them and then do a beauty queen wave. He also has started hugging and holding hands with the ladies at daycare, and one particular (she is posted below in a picture) Bekkha..a cute little blond. We learned that Owen loves to dance to jazz at the Elkhart Jazz Festival and enjoys custard ice cream (and who wouldnt). He is also starting to think about other peoples well being. Wes was playing with Sasha and was acting like she was attacking him (Wes) and Owen got really upset thinking it was real. Then I took him to the Chiropractor with me and when the Dr. was standing over me Owen started to cry and say was cute and sad in a way. He still is biting me..and getting bit at daycare. He had to go to the doctor on Wend. because he was having horrid drainage and he is back on an antibiotic--which always makes him sick to his belly..he just puked it up today...but anyway if he gets one more ear infection they are talking about putting tubes in his ears..I hear it really does help a lot. There for about week he was ALL about daycare and his teacher and my mom..but he is back to being a mommys boy..probably because he is not feeling well..oh and he is getting a tooth..a molar in the very back. Oh, and after bath lately we have been letting him run to his room naked and then dress him in there..and he has been stopping off at his music dance toy and doing a little jigg for us, which is hilarious because his little chubby butt cheeks jiggle..ha!! That seriously cracks me up.

Whats new with Wes: he is taking classes at Signal learning..which is cool. He has gone from being the teacher to the student. He is still jamming with Darin. They actually recorded some of their music at one of Darin's friends house. It sounded pretty good!

As for me: I think I am enjoying work a little bit more. I am still tense..and go get a massage weekly but that is coming to an end because Wes and I are going on a budget so we can pay off our bills. We spent our last big splurge on a Vacuum. Which so far so good. Its a Lindhaus and I really like it..kinda expensive--ok really expensive--but I am hoping that it will last us for a very long time and I will not have to worry about spending money over and over and over again every time one of our cheapo's break. Really appliances are very important to me..and I would say wether it be a man or woman who does the household understand how important a good vacuum is!! Especially when you have kids and dog.

Wes lost my old cell phone so I have not been able to call a majority of my friends because ALL of my phone numbers were on that I suppose I could send an email to let everyone know that I really am not a snob.

My kid brother and mom have been coming over lately hanging out. It has been nice to spend time with them. I know its great for Owen. He needs to get to know Scott. He has that stranger danger attitude now so I want him to get use to his family. Scott may move in with us if he ever finds himself a job. That would be cool. It would be like a live in computer/video game buddy for Wes. LOL.

Not much else..that I can think of. Wes still has not sent me my pictures so nothing to share with you there..hopefully soon.

Shots stink

Well this morning Owen gets another shot..until next month. I am having the doctor space them out. I don't like getting them all at once, it just seems like too much. I am glad I did that too because last month he got the Hand, Foot Mouth Disease a day after he got his MMR imagine how crappy he would have felt if he would have had all that in him and the Virus too..

Today is Fathers Day at daycare so Wes and I are going to go meet Owen at daycare at 3 pm. I am going to take pictures while daddy plays with Owen. They must really be practicing saying "daddy" at daycare because Owen said it yesterday..plain as day. He also can say "bath" and "duck" its so cute.

Were going to go the Elkhart Festival this weekend and also to the Art and Music festival in South Bend. Owen will love the music..anytime he hears music he get really excited and starts to dance.

My mom has been coming over a lot and spending a lot of time with Owen, and now when she leaves he starts to fuss about it. He knows that she will take him outside. So as soon as she gets here he runs over to her and starts pointing outside. It is so funny. She tells me he has me where he wants me, but I think he also has her where he wants

I received flowers the other day from a claimants sister. The man I took the disability claim from passed away two days after he filed and his sister was not going to pursue the claim. I advised her that we should and then we reopened a prior filing that he had, the bottom line we ended up getting the family a large back payment. So she sent me flowers. I thought that was very kind of her, how often do people show you appreciation for what you do. VERY COOL!! I will take a picture of them and post them soon..they are beautiful.

Not much else left to say. Will post some cool pictures soon. Waiting for Wes to get them off the camera first.

Its been a while

I have not written in a little while. It seems I just do not have the time to do so. I acutally only have three minutes right now. I want to keep this updated for my little Owen so that one day when he is big he can have some interesting things to read.

So what is new with us?? For starters were all healthy and happy. My little guy has not been sick in a while now and I am lovin it. Secondly, we went to the zoo last weekend and Owen got to hear the lions roar, which was pretty darn cool. Third, he is just getting so big and cute.

Not much else to write about right now..
