Fabric & Pups

Today Megan & I headed on over to our newly beloved JoAnn Fabrics.

We have been sewing ...well more like Mama Brock has been sewing curtains for our new houses.
Anyways, as all of you craftly ladies know, this week is Midnight Madness.
So we walked in the store, coupons in hand.
Fabric was picked out and cut in the first 15 minutes of our shopping trip.
Guess how the next fourty five minutes in JoAnn's was spent????

The saddest part about that is that there was only one lady in front of us.
A more "mature" lady was arguing with the guy about her coupon and the total on the receipt.
 The guy was a mute..didn't utter a word...just stared at the receipt FOREVER!
This went on for about fifteen minutes.
Meanwhile, twenty othere people got in line behind us.
The dude finally had the brains to call for backup and the manager came up to help.
The "mature" lady was helped within a minute and it was finally our turn.

The guy took our yellow receipt and scanned it.
Just our luck! Only one item came up so he had to type everything else in by hand.
I've never in my life seen someone type that slow.
Navy could've done it faster!
Megan was getting so impatient and angry I could see fire in her eyes and could hear her blood boiling!
She grabs the receipt from the guy and starts doing it herself!
Manager lady steps in and tells the guy she will finish our ticket.
Its finished in one milasecond!
We leave.
We will never go back to JoAnn Fabrics on Gilbert & Southern.

On a lighter note
Navy is getting to know the pups!

The 2 Newest Shreeves

There are two new additions to the Shreeve family!!


Rolo and Oreo

(Please excuse that I look like a complete darrell and have a dumb
 piece of bang glued to my sweaty forehead)

Ryder's friend Hunter had 8 puppies so we went and looked at them the other day and just had to have them! After A LOT of convincing I talked Dano into getting two! (So they had a playmate of course!)
Rolo is a male and Oreo is a female!

Mama Brock got a pup too.
Her name is Lexus and she loves playing with her brother and sister!

They got tired after exploring the backyard. Aren't they so cute!!


Navy is 7 months now!
She is so fun and such a happy baby!

She loves bath time!

I read it and its sequel in two and a half days in between working on my house and taking care of Navy. Thank you Lar for encouraging me to read these books!!!!

I hate football!

Pulling up in the Mountain View parking lot an hour late to Ryder's game, we got a text that he was hurt, followed by a pic of a fire truck pulled up to the field. As we were scurrying to park Dano's brother Jake and his friend came up to our window. We asked what was going on and they said some kid was paralyzed on the field! I said, "THATS MY BROTHER!!" and jumped out of the truck. 

Turns out they were kidding and felt bad, but not knowing this, I ran as fast as I could onto the field balling my eyes out because I thought I'd have a vegetable of a brother lying there. I ran into Megan and she quickly filled me in.

Ryder leaned in for a block and somehow hurt his neck. After the play he staggered off the field. His legs gave out from under him, he blacked out and was on the ground.

Megan & I walked over to where Ryder was, joining my mom, dad, and some pretty cute firefighters ( am I allowed to say that??). Ryder asked my dad for a blessing. One of the firefighters was kind enough to assist my dad in administering the blessing.

The ambulance showed up shortly after and Ryder was taken away to St. Joe's Hospital. He was given a CT scan and then had to wait for the results. Megan, Wyatt, Marci, Kelly and myself waited in the waiting room while my mom and dad waited with Ryder.

It came back all clear. It was just a "zinger" (what does that mean?) maybe a scare? He had a slight concussion and had a sore neck and back but other than that he was fine. WHAT A RELIEF!! The only downer is he can't ever play football again....I'll miss watching his games. He has quite some talent!

So that was the background story. Here is the real reason I posted today:)

Ryder of course did not attend school today so he was at home. After school a TON of boys were at the door. Ryder's friends came over to surprise him and see how he was doing. They were so happy that he was okay.  

I had no idea so many boys could fit in this house!

My mom bought pizza and soda for all the hungry boys! Yum!

The boys wrote Ryder's name and number on their arms at school today in honor of him!

How lucky he is to have such great friends that truly love and care about him. There are so many people that called to make sure he was okay and so many prayers that were offered for him. Our family is so blessed to have so much support and so many loving people surrounding us!

Its Been A While

The last month has been pretty busy!! Here is what we have been up to lately.....

We went to the Jolley Family Renion in Pinetop. The weather was great and it was fun to get to know Dano's side of the family.
We have also MOVED!!!
We finally closed on our house and have started to fix it up.
In the mean time we are staying with Mama Brock.
We have moved in, and Clint has moved out! He is now an Idaho Bengal!!
To see pics of his first game vs. ASU go here!
Today is Dano's 25th birthday!
He is the greatest dad and husband and we LOVE him to pieces!!
Navy is growing up!!!
She can sit up, crawl, and she can even babble and say BABA!!
She likes to find cool places to crawl into like this crack in between the couches!
Around the chairs we go!
We put her Jenny Jumper out back the day it rained.
She LOVES nature!!
P.S. Will post before/after pics of our house as soon as its done! Hooray!

The Good Ole Days

My mom told me back in the day- when I used to complain about my body image- that I would one day look back and wish for that body. Today is that one day. I long for my old flat chested, little waisted self. Why did I ever complain about you?! Come back!! I despise this extra ten pounds that I just can't shed!

Navy has had a lot of tricks up her sleeve lately. One of them is sucking on her toes. She has finally discovered her feet so naturally they are always in her mouth!

Navy also has many ambitions, even at the young age of 4 months. She dreams of being in the NFL.....

As well as becoming a Rock Star!!!

Bling Bling!!!

Today Navy, Megan, & I went to the mall and while we were shopping we passed by The Icing. I went in to see how old you have to be to get your ears pierced and they said all you have to have is your DTaP shot. Navy had that shot so I was in! She hardly cried at all! By the time I checked out she was smiling and happy again! We got a little carried away with the camera but here are some pics of Navy with her bling!

Doesn't she look so cute and girly!

Baby Talk

Navy is getting to be such a big girl! She can roll from her tummy to her back now!!
I am so so proud of her but sad too that she is getting so old!

She wore her first pair of jeans here.
They are a bit too big but she wore them anyways!

She is starting to nap better when she is on her tummy.
She looks like a little frog on her lily pad

Navy is also babbling alot now! I just love her little voice.
