February month of a birthdays

February is a busy month with 4 family members birthdays. Vanessa Ryan's godmother and aunt's is a day before his. Ryan's is the 3rd. Grandpa Jay and Uncle Cal and godfather is on the 20th. We celebrated Ryan's 5th birthday party at Godfather's pizza. We had the pizza buffet and cake from Walmart. Everyone had a great time. The kids enjoyed playing the arcades and Hope enjoyed trying to win items with the claw. She won small balls for all of her cousins. Tyler loved chasing Ally around. Dimitri was showing off his new walking skills. he will soon be able to keep up with the other kids.
Ryan had a doctor's appointment due to him vomiting at night. He would only do this then. He got an xray of his abdomen and it was to be known that he was backed up with poop. At that same time we were told that there was a foreign object in his right lower abdomen. I was stunned and wondered what it could be. We then had a follow up appointment within the next 4 days. He was no longer puking but he was starting to REALLY poop alot(which is a good thing). They took another xray then and the screw was still there. Ryan then went and saw her again in a week to see if the screw had moved or not. When they did the xray,it was still in the same spot. She didn't want to see him for 3 weeks,cause too many xrays and radiation can have an affect on him. I am hoping and praying that he poops it out before the next visit. If it has not moved by they next time she sees him,they will have to schedule an appointment with a GI Specialist and have a tube go in and retrieve the object.
On February 20th we celebrated Grandpa Jay's birthday at the waterpark inside of Holiday Inn. Tyler enjoyed himself and loved the water. Ryan had a blast himself. The water was a little cold,but once you got used to it,it was fine. We had pizza and birthday cake. We got to play arcade games.

January New Year and a New Career for me

The New Year came into the Hedberg home. I was still looking for some kind of employment. I was applying everywhere and was getting no where. Earlier in the month my husband suggested selling Avon and I just didn't think that would be for me. A couple weeks later I was looking on a website for jobs and I saw an ad for Avon representatives in my area. I decided to take the leap. I spoke with my sister in law to see what she thought about it. She thought it would be a great opportunity for me. I filled out the online application and within an hour I got a phone call. I spoke with the lady and I was a little hesitant at first but then I said "what the heck". I have been selling Avon for 3 months now. I know that I won't become a millionare over night but some kind of income is better than nothing.
January was the month that we got to sit down with the school teachers. Ryan is going to be starting Kindergarten Fall of 2011. We had a meeting with the Special Education Teachers at Talahi Elementary School. We talked about what his goals were going to be once he started school there and also if we wanted him to go half day or full day. I think full day would be best for him. He LOVES going to school. The current teacher is going to miss having Ryan in her class. He is just a lovable boy that everyone loves. We have to go to open house for Kindergarten in May to officially sign him up. I can't believe that he is going to kindergarten already.
Ryan got botox shots again for the 3rd time. Ryan has been very healthy and a happy boy.
Tyler is being a very difficult 2 year old. I know he will outgrow this(hopefully),but he doesn't listen to us. He thinks that he can do whatever he wants without any consequences. I really can't wait for him to outgrow it. O love my youngest but sometimes I want to just pull my hair out.

I am WAYYYYY Behind

Well where shall I begin. It has been a long time since I last blogged. I guess you can say that my life is not boring.

July 2010:
Ryan had summer school for 3 weeks. He LOVES going to school. He also had therapy. He is a busy little boy. Ryan got botox shots in his legs and left thumb. It helps so the therapists can stretch his muscles.
We were planning a surprise birthday party for my mom. Her sister and husband were coming up and my mom had no clue about what was happening. Unfortunately that couldn't happen. My uncle got some news that his brother passed away. We hope to get together again soon.
I had some sad news happen to me as well. As you all know I have worked at Arby's for 16 years. I got some news on July 13th that they were letting me go. I was told that I was late 2 days,was caught by a supervisor on my cell phone when I was up front(which is not true,but he can never be wrong). I applied for unemployment and I had to fight for it cause Arby's was saying that I was fired for misconduct and not following safety rules.
August 2010:
A pretty boring month. We celebrated Ally's 5th birthday. She has grown into her own person(look out world). We also had a family trip to Rosenthal's. We celebrated my husbands birthday while we were there. It was a good time. We ate at the restaurant on the site and the food was good.
September 2010:
Ryan started pre-school this month. We celebrated our wedding anniversary. We have been married for 4 years. It seems longer than that.
October 2010:
Ryan went on his first field trip. We went to a orchard farm. Ryan got to pick some raspberries and eat them. He liked them. He also got to pick his own apple. He enjoyed the beautiful day outside with his classmates and mommy enjoyed the trip as well. We celebrated Grandma Terri's birthday. She got a kindle from her kids. She really enjoys it.And of course we went to the annual Halloween parade in Anoka. Ryan got a good stash of candy and so did Tyler.
November 2010:
Ryan got tubes put in both his ears. He was having trouble with fluid building up,so they decided to make everything better that he needed the tubes. He has only gotten one ear infection since he got them. He hears much better and his speech is more clearer. We had our first Parent/Teacher Conferences. The teacher said that Ryan is a great kid. He loves working with the other kids and singing songs. We celebrated my sister-in-laws 40th birthday at Billy's bar in Anoka. It was a great time the kids had fun.
December 2010:
Dimitri turned 1 years old. He is such a cutie. I don't think I have ever seen that kid without a smile on his face. He is always happy. We had a passing in the family. Scott Rolland my father-in-laws brother died suddenly. He was plowing the snow in his drive way and had a heart attack. I only knew Scott for 4 years, but he was a great guy. Ryan really loved him. Whenever we would go to Scott's house, Scott would make Ryan laugh,which is not a hard thing.

We had a very eventful last half of 2010. Let's see what 2011 will bring us.
