Cash had the lovely throw up virus last Saturday. And lucky for us, he had a big cup of strawberry milk before bed time. You can imagine how rancid the vomit was! We had to miss Kristin's baby shower :( But everyone knows how it is when you have kids... there's always the unexpected. Cash was so pitiful. I blew up our aerobed for him in the den and he just layed on it all day long. So sad! Well, he is better now but has a runny nose today... hopefully that won't turn into anything major.

We are looking forward to Aubrey's 3rd Birthday party this weekend! I can't believe she is turning 3 and Cash is just right behind her. Where does the time go? We have another birthday party to attend on Sunday for our friends Scott and Stephanie's little boy, Korbin, and a Superbowl party with the friendies! And Jay is off this Saturday! Woo-hoo! I'm looking forward to time with my husband and the social gatherings. I was in the house for 3 days straight last weekend, so I'm ready for a fun weekend!

Oh, and Jay and I are getting ready for our anniversary trip to VEGAS!!! We are leaving in 2 weeks and we are both so excited!!! We are going with our friends who we met on our cruise last year. They are crazy fun... just like us :) I'm sure we'll have many stories to tell...

Loss of a pet

We had to have our new little kitty cat put to sleep yesterday. I was pretty much a complete disaster about it. I've never seen such a sweet little cat in all of my life... and I've had lots of cats! He was not looking so good for a couple days and had no energy, so I took him to the vet on Saturday and was told that he has heart problems. He looked so pitiful and miserable... not fair to a little kitty to have him live like that and no telling how long he would last. It breaks my heart because he and Cash had become such great friends and I didn't know how I would explain things to Cash. I decided to be honest with Cash and told him that the kitty got really sick and passed away and now he is in heaven with Jesus. Cash said, "Now I just have one cat, Willie" and hasn't asked about Flash since. So I think he somewhat understands that Flash isn't coming back. It still just breaks my heart.

Cash's helmet

Cash loves his new helmet! He likes to wear it because it is, "Just like Caillou..." If you don't know Caillou, it's a cute cartoon about a 4 year old boy who does lots of "big boy" things and Cash learns a lot from him. Here are a couple pics of him riding his 4-wheeler. He has also finally mastered the art of riding his low-rider tricycle. He loves to ride it down the street, but I have to push him back up the street. He tells me, "I need some help. My muscles aren't working." Cutie pie!

Happy 2009!

We rang in the new year with our wonderful friends. Kim and Keith were great hosts and we had a blast... as usual!

I'm a blogger!

Okay, so I've finally done it! I've decided to create a blog. So many of my friends are doing it, and to be honest, I was feeling like a loser for not. And, it will be nice for all of my family and friends to keep up with our family... especially our little man, Cash. So here it is... Martin Moments!


Here a few pictures from all of the Christmas festivities. Santa was very good to Cash! But even with all of his new toys, he would rather play pretend with Momma. Boy does this kid have an imagination! Oh, and Poppa brought home a kitten for Cash 2 days before Christmas. His name is Flash and he is so good with Cash. Yes, we realize their names rhyme.
