January has been a busy month for us!  We are trying to get back in the swing of things after the holiday season.  I randomly noticed my Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) certification was about to expire.  For some reason I always wanted it to be active just in case I needed to return to work.  Curtis was going to Vegas for a week, and my mom was coming to town to help me out, so I decided to sign up for the course.  After the class was over, my instructor asked me if I was currently working and told me that Saint Agnes Medical Center was looking for some quality ER nurses.  I was thinking, "Yea right!   There'd be no way!"  I went online that night and saw a Per Diem ER RN job posting - one 12 hour shift a week - and applied on a whim.  I didn't even tell Curtis because I wasn't thinking too much about it.  I got a call to come in for an interview the next day!  I went to the interview and they hired me on the spot.  Crazy.  I have to do 6-7 weeks of training, and then I'll be working one shift a week - most likely the 12pm-12am shift.  In my head it all seems perfect. I'll only need a babysitter from like 11:30am-5pm until Curtis gets home from work.  All 4 kids nap from 1pm-3:30pm so it shouldn't be too hard for the sitter.  And I'll be home from work around 12:30am-1am, so my sleep schedule won't be messed up.  We'll see if it works out like I think it will.  :)  

My cute little Trey Man.
Heading to Costco.
I love how he puts his feet in the cup holders. 
Curtis had the day off work, so we surprised our friend Janessa and went to her Zumba class!  It was so fun - although I'm terrible!
Target shenanigans. 
Holding hands on their way into church just about melted my heart!
I'm definitely no where near ready to start potty training, but these potty's were on sale, so I had to buy three.  Every time I put Kash on, he goes potty!  I was shocked!  The other two aren't even close. 
Still obsessed with his blanket. 

My favorite little workout partners!  The longer I workout, the longer they're in daycare haha!
I promise I can still see you!
Fun night out with our friends!
Cutest little stinkers!!  
She could not eat her cheeseburger fast enough.  I swear she thought one of there siblings were going to steal it from her.  It was so funny!
Sunday best.
I'm officially obsessed with Freshly Picked mocs!  They are so comfy and cute and insanely easy to put on.  It takes forever to tie up 4 pairs of shoes.  You can just snap these little mocs on in 3 seconds flat.  If you go to the Freshly Picked website you'll see my cute little kiddos under the pink and blue mocs!

Coming to give mommy hugs.
They are so sweet with each other (most of the time). 

Her hair kills me.  Love it!

I love her curls!
Look at that sass. 

He brings me a diaper and wipes and lays down to be changed! 

Waiting patiently for the bread to be done!

December photo dump.
Why do my kids like to play outside the play place better than inside? 
 This cart is a major lifesaver!  I drive around the Target parking lot until I find it.  If it's not outside, we don't go. 
Kash thought he was so funny sticking his gum in his nose.  Until he shoved it ways too far inside and it got stuck.  I told him to blow his nose, but he just sniffed it farther inside.  Thank goodness I could dig it out with a broken plastic fork piece lol. 

 Julie qualified for this little City Kids class - to help develop her speech.  They let all the siblings come too, which is a major plus for us.  They always have so much fun there.

 I asked my mom for her ugliest sweaters, and this is what she brought us.  :)  Our annual Christmas friends party was seriously so fun this year.  All the couples did a little lip sync battle that will go down in history as the funniest thing I've ever seen!  We lucked out with the best friends out here! 
 Our epic Santa fail pic!
 I asked Kash to give me his stank face...
 This boy is obsessed with Frozen! 
 Curtis and I were trying to hurry out the door and loading Trey and Julie in the car.  We walk back to get the boys and find comet EVERYWHERE!  Little stinkers.  At least it was pretty easy to clean up and left my bathroom even cleaner haha.. 
 Saturday mornings!  My boys are officially obsessed with trains. 
 My poor little Trey man got a BAD ear infection this month.  Poor guy was NOT himself.  I'm so glad we took him in prior to leaving for Palmdale.  He had to get a shot of antibiotics and also be on a 10 day course.  After a couple days he was finally his happy little self again. 

 Poor Trey!  I hate seeing him sick.  
Best. Friends. Forever. And Ever.
Cutest little buddies.
