Sick Kids

I really don't think that there is anything worse that a sick little kid. AnnDee has had it the last 4 days. I hate taking the kids in and being told that there is nothing that the Dr. can do, so I waited. So she has strep, now I feel like a terrible mother.

I would much rather be the one that doesn't feel well. At least I can make it to the toilet in time, and I understand what it means to be sick. When my children are sick they don't understand, which makes me feel that much worse.

Dr. Worwood gave her a shot, and wants to see her again in the morning. I am so thankful for medicane, I believe that Heavenly Father is watching out for all of us, even the sick ones!! He is a wonderful Dr. if anyone in Hurricane is looking. We love him. He is also having Jason come in to be swabbed. Fun. Fun. Fun.

Where we are in life...

So because this is our family Journal I will start with where we are in life.

I (Heather) am a lucky stay at home Mom. I can't say that I don't work, because I don't think that I have ever worked this hard before. Three kids are hard, rewarding, but o'so very very hard. We live in Hurricane, UT. Where I was born and raised. I love it here, and I think that it is growing on Jason (even if he won't admit it). I am a Miamaid advisor in our ward, and I love it. It is a great calling that makes me feel so old and young at the same time.

Jason works for the City of Hurricane, in the Water Department. He has been with them for a little over 2 years, and likes his job 75% of the time. He is also doing an addition onto the back of our house, so he is busy. When he isn't working on one of the two previous mentioned things he is watching the kids. On the rare occasion that he isn't doing any of that he is hunting, fishing, or playing basketball. Jason teaches the 17 and 18 year olds in Sunday School, and does a great job.

Craig is 4 1/2 years old. My goodness, who knew that a child could have this much energy? He is very inquisitive and always on the go!! He is going currently attending HeadStart, and he loves it.
AnnDee just turned 2 yesterday. She is our princess, and she acts like it. She thinks that she is the boss, but is so cute it is hard to tell her that she isn't. AnnDee is tiny, which is fun because her brothers are so big. Today she is sick, so instead of being a silly little girl who loves to tease everyone she is around, she is crying to be held, and sleeping on the couch.
Benjamin will be 7 months tomorrow. He is perfect. Not only is he the most handsome little boy ever, but he is just happy all of the time. That is unless he is hungry. He loves his siblings more than anything. He refuses to sit or hold his own bottle. He is just content to roll around on the floor chewing on anything he can get in his mouth.

First Blog, Kinda

So this is my first post to our family Blog. I am going to try to keep this up dated. I started a Blog 4 years ago and never got past adding a family picture. Hopefully this indevour will be a little more promising.

We are the Porters. If you are on our Blog you probably already know that.

Our family picture was taken last August. We have Jason, Myself (Heather), Craig (4), AnnDee (1), and Benjamin (2 months).
