Brogity Brogan! (medical update! + stitches)

been so hard watching him struggle with this! His well, I don't know where to begin.... We have been dealing with his "Cerebellar Ataxia" But now the doctors are not so sure this is what is is! I knew that it might be a long recovery but I didn't realize that things like this would come along with this! I have been trying to do fun things this week since the AZ heat is coming back! I have been taking my boys to the park, spending a lot of time out side and best of all SWIMMING!! Me and Amy had a really fun play date at my moms pool and the kids LOVED it! Well, Brogan still has a really hard time balancing! He has been having little episodes where he gets really wobbly again and it is really scary! This normally results in big bumps on his head! He is always getting a new goose egg or scratch on his cute little head! He also has had moments where his lips, hands and feet go blue! Yesterday I took him back to my parents to let him and Vance hang for a little while at the pool! Long story short, Brogan had an "episode", but this time it was a little more serious! He Smashed his face against the cool decking and split open his eyebrow. We lost count counting the stitches because It had to be stitched up on the inside and out! Luckily a plastic surgeon did it so we know it might not look too bad in the long run! He is such a little trooper! I just love him so much! This has been so hard watching him struggle with all this! His neurologist said in an appointment today that he thinks he may be having little seizures, but we will now for sure once they run the test next week! I can't wait for all this to be over! I know it will be soon! As for now, I may just have to put a helmet on the poor little boy! :)

A for Effort!!!

As you can see, we finally got family pics done! YAY!!! Even though we didn't get a great family shot, we got so many fun cute pictures that I love! My friend Dray did an awesome job! I was totally dreading the experience but it was so fun! Ben was a great sport even though he HATES taking pics! (maybe it has something to do with the fact that I am obsessed with it:) I just thought O would share some of my many favorites! sorry theres a million! I go a little carried away! (and I didn't even post the funny one! I will later)

This is my favorite! Bro wasn't being very nice so we figured he could just face the other way!

this looks like Vance is hanging from a string!

Can Vance be any more serious?

Vance loves to choke Daddy!

Easter was great this year. It was very relaxing. We got to sleep in and then we casually let the boys dig through their baskets! Vance got a new scooter ( He goes through them like they are disposable!) and Brogan got.. well just the basket! (messed up I know!) After church my family got together at my parents house for a very YUMMY dinner and a little Guitar Hero. Yes I beat my hubby every time! LOL. It was way fun! I got eggs to do an egg hunt but yes, I was too lazy! How lame, my kids didn't even get to hunt for
eggs this year! OH well, at least they are still young! I will for sure next year!
Vance thought this guitar went to the game (it didn't!)

Why so serious!?

Since I am a photographer I am constantly taking pictures of my boys! (as if you don't know that!) Well, I have no idea why Vance WILL NOT smile for the camera! If you know him, you know that he is anything but serious! He is always laughing and smiling!!!! It is so frustrating! he always just gives me the same blank stare! I guess I should just take the hint that he is sick of me using him for photo shoots! Oh well....... no more pictures for Vance! He got is way! (like always!)

Our Newest Addition!

Ben and I have been wanting a big dog and we know our boys LOVE big dogs so we finally got brave and got one! He is a Lab mix and he is so cute! After we told Vance he couldn't name him Diego (from Go Diego Go) we let him name me Dax. He has been a good little dog! He is going to be huge! His paws massive! It is a big change from the Chihuahua we have had for the past 4 years! My friend Sara gave us a puppy shower! LOL. She bought him a new collar, leash, food and toys! She was more excited about me bringing home a puppy than she was when I brought home a baby! Now the puppy loves her! Her giant dog Ace now has a best bud! Vance loves Ace and today he was pointing to him asking me if he could ride the horse!! He really thinks he is a horse!

Ben says we can only have one dog, so if any one wants a chihuahua, Let me know! Hes a good little dog and he is SO good with kids!

Good Morning!

So a long time ago, Vance did some very interesting art work all over my house with orange permanent marker! I was telling my friend Sonia about it and she told me that she had learned the hard way and doesn't allow ANY permanent markers in her house! I decided I would take the wise advice and it has worked out great! WELL..... This morning Ben went to get Vance out of is bed and this is what he found! Vance had somehow managed to hide a black perm mark in his room and got it out once he knew we were asleep! Mischievous is not even the word!! TERROR is more like it. We have scrubbed and scrubbed, but I think he will have to look like this for a couple days! I really have no idea where the dang marker came from!!!!!He was freaking out in the bath because we had to scrub him so hard! The water was so dirty from the marker!

This Darn flu season!!!!

Man, this flu season has been terrible! For those of you that have had it, you know what I'm talking about! I don't remember ever feeling as sick as I did over the last couple days! My poor boys got it too! Vance was such a trooper! He just kept saying, "Mommy I need my coke bowl". It took me a while to figure out that he was saying "Choke bowl"! It was terrible! Luckily, I have an amazing husband who always handles ALL the throw up because he knows my stomach is too weak! He was also great at taking care of his sick wife! Thanks honey!

A week in the life of Vance......

Okay, before I begin, let me just say how much I totally love Vance! He is so cute and funny and he is the best company ever! He truly amazes me every time I look at him! Now, with that be said, let me say the second thing that is on my mind... AHHHHHHHHH..... wow, I am so over cleaning up disgusting messes! Why do 2 year olds have to be so oblivious to the fact that all we do as moms is clean ALL day!!! Vance lovse to push over the top! I feel like while I am cleaning his first mess, he is busy making his second mess! All these pics are from the last couple days! enjoy......

um... can some one please tell me why he can't just eat the dang goldfish out of the box?

This is Yogurt that he managed to cover himself and his brother with!

Hm... this is mommy's eye make-up that for some reason he thought was lipstick! I know what your thinking, but I assure you that I don't teach him these things!

And this is daddy's favorite hair product! What can I say, he likes to look good!

Finally a little peace and quiet! Yes, he sleeps with his eyes open! Both my boys do! It totally freaks me out!

The Welcome home parties!

My mom threw a huge bash for walker the night he came home! I think the whole town of gilbert came! LOL. All though everyone was competing for Walker time, we all had a really good time! I think I ate more than I have ever eaten! There was a ton of yummy food, including, some of the best desserts EVER!

Then, on Friday, my extended family threw a party for him ad it was a total blast! I LOVE my family. I love all my aunts and cousins so much! We always have the best time together! My aunts are amazing cooks, so I always look forward to the food they will serve!

My brother Joe brought a root beer keg and it kind of scared me that my boys would NOT stay away from it and that Vance totally knew how to operate it!

How in the world does this happen? My two "little" brothers tower over me? I don't know if Rhett is ever going to stop growing! He is only a sophmore in high school and he seems to get bigger everyday! He is a good kid! My boys LOVE my two little bros! Vance tells me everyday that he wants to see Walker and Rhett!

Here is Valentina doing a Keg stand! Mine wasn't so graceful! Ha!

Welcom Home Elder Scheurn

My little brother returned home after serving 2 years in Connecticut and Rhode Island! We are so happy to have him home! He had 2 new nephews and a new niece that he got to meet for the first time! He is pretty much the same 'ol Walker. I dont think he has changed that much, just a little more mature!


So I said I would NEVER go private but I have decided to due to trying to expand my business. If you would like to be added to read my blog, leave your email as a comment on any post or email me at I hope to do this within the next couple days. thanks!
