Trying harder!

I have been a really bad, horrible blogger! I need to try and blog at least once a week to keep everyone updated!! Not really sure where to begin....

Chris and I have started playing co-ed volleyball every Friday night, it is fun but would probably be a little more fun if we could start winning!! I blame it all on the guys!

Chris threw my a surprise 30th birthday party, and it was a success, I had no idea at all!! Thank you to everyone that came to help me celebrate, especially to all my friends and family that came from out of town.

Riley is doing awesome, school is great and keeps getting very good report cards! He started basketball about a month ago and has a BIG tournament the last Sunday in February....schools from the cities are coming down for this so it is a pretty big deal to Riley and his coach (his dad).

Keegan.....well, he is another story! He is talking up a storm and his vocabulary is getting to be so good. Potty training. What's that? We are going no where on it, and I am okay with it. He will get it. Eventually. He knows when he has to go, and will take the time to go as long as he has nothing else going on that second. He is still a sick little boy, in the last 3 1/2 months he was been sick 4 times from anywhere to 5-7 days. 105 temps, vomiting and diarrhea. I took him in about a month ago and was in tears, telling the Dr. that I have had it. He finally ran a bunch of tests, blood work, X-Rays and everything. I got a call that night saying he had an enlarged liver and needed to come back ASAP for ultrasounds. We went back the next morning and got ultrasounds done...I cried for two days. Of course I googled it, even though I know I shouldn't of...but I did. I called my sister up.... probably not a good idea either!! She already had a benefit set up in her head and told me she would give KG part of her liver. Well, we got results back two days later saying it looked fine so there were no worries!! Now Summer can keep her liver!! The Dr. referred us to a specialist from the University Of Minnesota, so we see her next Thursday and to be honest, I can not wait!!

Other then that...all is good in the Hulke house!

Mr. 3rd grader!

School started on Tuesday and Riley could have not been more excited!! Hard to believe he is already in third grade. Time flies by so quickly. He has changed so much in the last year, it is amazing to watch. Keegan on the other hand was not so excited about Riley going to school, he cried. Last weekend Riley went camping with a friend and when they drove off with Riley in the car, Keegan screamed and started chasing after the vehicle. Chris and I then went and bought a new mattress and gave Riley our old queen and Keegan got moved from his toddler bed to Riley's old twin bed. When we brought the twin into Keegan's room, he flipped out yelling "NOOO, RILEY'S BED" and crying. When I finally explained to him that we are not getting rid of Riley and that he got a new bed, he was fine!! Riley and Keegan have there moments with one another, but for the most part Riley is an amazing older bother and is over protective of his little brother. Riley, I wish you all the luck in the world this year in thrid grade and we are so proud of you! I know you will shine. We love you to the moon and back!!

Where do I start?!?

It has been way to long, there has been too much stuff going on to even post about!! We had a fun April celebrating lots of fun things!! We had Keegan's 2nd birthday party and Riley's 8th birthday party on the same day, almost all of the family came and the boys had a blast! Its hard to believe that Riley is 8 already and almost in the 3rd grade!! I am thinking that 8 years old comes with attitude though :)
Riley is getting ready for Mayba this Summer again. He will be playing in Mankato on Monday and Wednesday evenings, that always gives us something to look forward too!! He just finished up basketball about a month ago, he played every Sat for about three months! I hate to brag, but mannnnn was he good!! We had the coach tell us so many times how great Riley was and that he had really good skills!! A coach down in Iowa saw him play too and was real surprised that he was only in second grade!!
And then there is Keegan...his name fits him to a T! "Little fierce one" that is all Keegan! He is always on the go and always causing some sort of trouble!! He used the potty chair last night, only because Riley helped him...but he still did it! He has been in a big boy bed for over a month now, it was really hard at first but he is finally used to it!! He had learned to crawl out of his crib so we had no choice :(
Chris and I both have different jobs now, our schedules are a little different and don't allow us much time together but in the end it will be work it!! Chris is the finance manager at KIA in Mankato!! And I just recently accepted a position as a Support Living Coordinator/Supervisor with the Harry Meyering Center, I no longer have to work NIGHTS, WEEKENDS OR HOLIDAYS!! YAY!!!! And I get to chose my own hours which is really nice, I don't think you can get any better then that!!
I will try and post some new pictures soon!!

2, 3, 5.....

Happy 2nd Birthday to our baby!! I can't believe how fast time has gone! If you ask Keegan how old he is, he will say three... we then say, no two! He yells back...NO FIVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!! So we leave it at that ;) I will post some pictures later on today!

Christmas 09

Sorry it has been two months since I have posted...... we have been without a computer so I have not been able to do anything!! We finally bought a new laptop a couple weeks ago!! Here is a picture of the boys I took the beginning of December for our family pictures.... the picture turned out really well!! I surprised we got one with everyone looking at the camera!
The boys had a wonderful christmas, I am glad it is all over with though!! My Mom came the Wednesday before Christmas eve and spent the night. Riley had his Church program on Christmas eve, after that we came home and ate the WONDERFUL meal that my mom and Chris was awesome!! Mom got stranding another night, we all had fun and enjoyed her company for three days!!! Christmas Day morning she got out and was able to make it back to Fairmont, we spent the day next door for the Hulke Christmas!! It was nice, and was better that we just had to walk across the yard!! Both boys were so fun to watch, Riley was thankful for everything and Keegan would open his presents and gasp at each gift he cute!!!

Sleeping it off?

Keegan, who is still sick went to bed last night at is now 11:15 am and he is still sound asleep. I keep going in there every 15 minutes to check on him. Whatever he has, has really hit him hard and hopefully this 16 + hours of sleep will do him good and he is sleeping off all of his sickness.......

This little boy......

Has had a bad month :( He has been sick for a month now..... He started out with Roseola, he had a temp of 104 and when it finally broke his little tummy and back broke out in a rash. His temp continued on and off throughout the next couple weeks and along with that came spots on his body....he had all together about 15 throughout his whole body. Started out looking like pimples and then turned into scab looking things. On Friday he developed a cough and his temp spiked back up that night. I told Chris I thought he had the Croup. On Saturday afternoon his temp was at 102, so I decided to take him to Urgent Care at the clinic. Bad idea. I always walk out of there with no answers.... They told me it was probably just viral...go figure. I worked Saturday night and on Sunday morning when I come home Chris said he was up all night coughing. Gave him some meds and just let him be lazy all day. Keegan and I fell asleep on the couch late afternoon, and when I woke up, Keegan was on fire..... his temp was 103, I came upstairs to get him some meds and Chris started yelling at me to come and check out Keegan, he was having a really hard time breathing....kind of struggling actually. The look on Chris and Rileys face made me panic. Chris was so worried and Riley was crying because he thought his little brother was going to die.... I threw him in the car and off the the E.R. we went. Sure enough, just like I diagnosed....THE CROUP and possible chicken pox. The gave him some steroids to open up his throat and airway to help him breath and monitored him for about an hour. He came home and he went right to bed....I came home from work on Monday morning and went to get Keegan and his was as white as a ghost and freezing cold, I am not sure what that was about but it sure scared me.....and now this morning, temp of 102. He is napping at the moment, but I am praying that he gets better soon. I disinfected the whole house today! Hoping it works. My poor baby.
