Happy Retirement Poopy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love you so much and I'm so proud to call you my Father! From the friends you've kept and your co-workers I've met I know that you've left a lasting impression on so many! I know that they will all miss you and that your department will not be the same. Thank you for showing me what a good role model should be and for teaching me what real dedication is.

You've shown me so much and given me some great memories.

...and had a few good memories yourself:)

As you begin the next chapter in your life I am looking forward to what life has in store for you! FUN!!!

I hope that you will be able to do all the things you've been dreaming of and more. A little golf, a little riding, a little hanging out, a little sleeping in! And maybe even try something new...a little surfing, a little carpentry with SFM construction!
Whatever it is I hope it will be RELAXING!!!!
I know you will be visiting us more, and our door is always open for you.

Here's to many more Rimple adventures!

Happy 1st day of Retirement Poopy!!!!!!!!!

Were's my motivation gone?

I have had so many posts to put on here and have been wanting to update everyone but for some reason I get on here, and then coming up with the words and downloading the pictures just seems too much. I'll have to get my thoughts together and just do it. so... posts will be coming...I just need to find the time and energy.
Stay tuned for some stories of Granny and Uncle David's visit, a street fair, some cute moments, and one of the biggest meltdowns our house has ever gone through.

Our Easter Day!

He is Risen! And to celebrate...

On Easter morning the boys woke up and opened their Easter baskets.

We continued the morning with a beautiful outside service at Horizon. Then we went to a friends for an Easter potluck.
Quick picture before we changed clothes.

(Job wouldn't wear his tie and Diego was sporting his Easter green cast)

I made Maggies onesie the night before, the Tutu and headband is from Dana.

Then we went down to the canyon for the Egg hunt, so much fun! Job had a full basket of eggs, Diego did pretty good too with his one arm. Maggie got one egg, but we had to give it up since she's not ready for MnM's.

OTHER PICTURES FROM THE PARTY, PLUS MAGGIE AND HER BFF KAITLYN. (P.S. Kaitlyn, Maggie is sorry for poking and pulling on you!)


Thank you Grandma Dorrie for the flower hat.

Here's the cross cake I made.
(I regret the funky pink frosting I put on the edges, Oh well.

We came home and everyone passed out. When Maggie woke up she had some one on one time with Buster our cat.

When everyone was up we went for a bike ride through the neighborhood and found a cool flower field down by a canyon.


Hope you had a Great Easter too!

Diegos first, and hopefully last trip...

to the ER!
Today while I was finishing up in the bathroom I heard Job and Diego arguing. I asked Job to come over to me and told him I was almost done and that he needed to be nice, "no fighting, no pushing, no hitting or arguing". He agreed, then 3 seconds later I hear,
"No I sit there!"
"No, I sit there!"
As I walked down the hall to break up a fight I heard "THUD" then a Scream.

I immediatly scooped Diego up off the floor and took him the couch. Job admitted that he pushed him off his bed. I thought his head was hurt but then realized he was guarding his arm. After about 45 minutes of on/off crying I Dropped Job off at my friend Jessenia's and went to Childrens ER.

The nurse thought it was nursemaids elbow (dislocated at the elbow), but after setting it in place he was still not using his arm. After Xrays we found it was ALSO BROKEN. Both forearm bones!
So we went to Ortho and he got a cast. He chose bright green and cried the WHOLE TIME! After the nurses twisted and pulled on him he was not happy with anyone in scrubs!
his Xray:

Job put it on the fridge as if it's his artwork:

Job praying that Diego will feel better and asking for forgiveness. Diego still holding the tylenol like it's helping him get better:

The first smile all day...french fries always help

All in all our experience at Children's Hospital was Awesome! We never waited more then 10 minutes for anything. We spent a total of about 2-2 1/2 hrs there. And for all that we had to get done it was not that long at all! That being said...I am definetly not looking forward to our bill!

Everyone is passed out asleep from the crazy morning, including my sweet boy Diego. Poor kid!
