Car Update

So Jareds MRI went really good.  His muscles were just strained so he needs to do physical therapy.  He keeps getting really bad headaches and so that is scary but hopefully once he goes to therapy they can strengthen his muscles.  We feel blessed that he wasn't hurt worst.  Car wrecks can be so scary.

We finally found a car that we could both agree on!  We got a really good deal.  Car shopping is not fun.  It takes forever and ever.  And I don't know what me and Jared were thinking we took both of our kids.  So we would have to take turns test driving.  When we finally decided on the car we called my mom to come and get the rug rats so we could do paper work.  They were actually pretty good but after 5 hours of car dealerships they had had it!  So we ended up getting a black Honda Pilot.  

This obviously isn't ours but it is the same year and model!  :)

Halloween Anyone??

Lets see it has been a month since Halloween and I wouldn't blog about it but I want to get a book of my blog and I want my kids Halloween.  I will keep it short and sweet!  Lillie was the cutest pumpkin ever.   Boston was a sweet lion.  We went to our wards trunk or treat and then up to Jareds parents trunk or treat.  The kids had fun.  We got way too much candy!  No worries I pulled out all the good stuff for me!  

Halloween is my Moms birthday and so we always start the night at her house and have her yummy homemade chili.  It sounds a little backwards that she cooks the chili since it is her birthday but we all love to go to her house and see all of  the other kids and what they are dressed up as.  Happy Be-Lated Birthday mom.  Your the best!!  

Also I had my sisters kids this year for Halloween so me and my kids went to the school halloween parade. 

Nate, Tanner and Hunter

Syd & Kiah


We also carved pumpkins at Jareds moms house.  I thought everyone pumpkins turned out great!

A week ago today Jared got what at the time seemed like a little fender bender on SF main street. He was totally stopped for a good 3 seconds at red light when a truck came and rear ended him and then a truck hit that truck(Ash Garbe--the 2nd truck was your little brother--he and Jared had a fun little reunion lol)! Jared had just come to the studio and switched me cars(mine has the car seats) to go get the kids from my Aunts house. He called me like ten minutes later and said he had just been a wreck and I immediately feel sick. He says he is okay and that I need to come and get him because they are towing my car. So in my head I am thinking it might be worst since they are towing my car...not just a fender bender. Well long story short my car is totaled. I love my car and I get attached to things really easy. I went to clean it out and I was sad thinking the last time I drove it was my last. So dumb but it was a good little car for me. Don't get me wrong I am excited for a new one!! Jared said he was okay from the wreck but the truck hit him going like 25 or something so I told him to go get checked out. He went and the Dr. told him that his x-rays looked normal but his muscles in his neck looked like they were inflamed. So he tried giving him medication and Jared tried being all tough and told him no. Well come Saturday, Sunday, and Monday morning he woke up with huge headaches. He finally came home last night and was in so much pain. His head and eye were killing him and his hand was tingly. Jared doesn't get sick very often and he hardly ever complains and so I knew he didn't feel good. After calling the dr. and telling him whats up. He thinks Jared needs a neck MRI. He thinks possibly some nerves are being hit by his muscles being inflamed or something else that was a too big of word for me to remember! I will keep you posted on how everything goes.

Here is my poor little car! :(

Just a side sister Ashlie brought this soccer outfit home for Boston for his Birthday. So last Sunday Jared let me sleep in and when I came out both of my boys were all dressed in soccer uniforms and Jared was teaching Boston how to play! Cutest boys I know!

Okay so ever since I have been home from my babysitting adventure I have been in a slump!  I have not wanted to do anything for anyone.  I just want to sit and watch movies and eat junk!  I don't think I sat down for 18 days.  :)  So my sweet husband has been trying to make me happy.  Saturday we went out to dinner and a movie with friends and had such a great time.  And then Sunday was on okay day.  But Monday was a killer.  My kids were so whiny!  They have lost four siblings of entertainment!  They kept asking for Nate and Syd and when the bus was going to come.  So anyway Jared called a couple times during the day and he just kept saying that I sounded sad or something.  He ended up coming home from work with a dozen orange roses!  He said he got orange to make me happy.  Which they did.  But I still was feeling down.  Then my sister sent me a text to tell me thanks for everything and that her kids have had nothing bad to say about dear old aunt Katie.  She said that she was grateful me and Jared that we could arrange our schedule to stay with them.  Anyway it was a nice text and the tears that had wanted to come all day finally came.  Boston and Lillie were so worried about me and why I was crying.  Jared came in and saw me on the couch and felt so bad.  I told them they were happy tears and that I am just grateful for my little family and my big family.  
He didn't believe me.  
Something that I have wanted for the last three years were some good brown boots.  I have a pair I got when I was 18 and they are my absolute favorite.  However, they have about had it.  So I have been looking for a while now.  So last night Jared was determined to find me some boots.  He was searching the Internet and he would find something and yell for me to come and look.  I would say no, no no and no!  Finally I heard some screaming of yahoo coming from the computer room and he was saying i found the perfect pair!  I went in and saw these beautiful boots.  It was so funny but my ENDORPHINS kicked in and i was giddy and happy and had a perma smile!  I am so estactic and I can't wait for them  to come in the mail.  I love them a lot a lot.  I am just hoping they make it here in time for the Twilight premiere!  LOL!!!    

So thanks to my wonderful husband who is willing to do anything Anything anything to make me happy.  I know that I am the luckiest girl in the world.  You do so many things for your high maintenance wife (yes I know i am HM...but the hardest part is admitting it, right ha ha)!  I love you Jare! Oh and in case you were all wondering.  I did get off my butt today and did dishes, cleaned the house, and started laundry.  Like I said before gotta love the endorphins that a pair of boots can bring to a girl!

Moms are the bEsT!!!!

I just have to do a quick little post and say moms are the best people in the whole world and they know how to make everything better!  Today is day 18 at the Hughes house hold.  Which sister will be home today!  I am so excited.  Not only to have my sister back but for my nieces and nephews to have there mom back.  While staying at my sisters 6 of the 8 people have had the throw up flu.  Her 3 kids, my 2 kids, and Jared.  Me and Allie are still holding out strong.  It was fine when it was my sisters kids because they are all old enough to make it to the bathroom.  Different story with my kids.  Lots of cleaning up on my end.  
Lillie has been sleeping so bad and she has thrown up two different days.  She was up for like 4 hours one night just screaming.  So yesterday morning I called my mom and was crying and telling her that I didn't know what was wrong with her.  She told me to come over to her house.  I am not kidding when I say the minute I walked in the door I felt better.  Lillie fell asleep and so did Boston and so my mom sent me to bed too.  Moms just know the things to do and say to make you feel better.  
Nate(my sisters youngest) didn't feel good and he was crying and saying he missed his mom.  I started crying too and I said I missed her and I was excited for my best friend to come home.  And he says...well she is like the best mom ever!
So I guess I would have to say my theory is right.  He thinks his mom is the best mom ever and I think mine is.  And if you are ever sick, stressed, tired, overwhelmed or whatever else you might feel as a mom.  All you have to do is call your mom and she will make it all better.  They just know what to do.  So a big thanks to my mom for helping me have a better day yesterday!  Love you mom!

Here is my mom acting all business like!
Once I get home I will be giving a more detailed report of my stay at my sisters house.  As for now I have cleaning and laundry to do before she gets home!  :)
