Oversheduled life....T-minus a week and half?

I don't know why I do this to myself, but it seems when I know a week will be busy I always end up making it even more crazy. I have been working a lot this week for CAROL'S COUNTRY GIFTS, if you don't know what this is check them out on facebook. Basically I get to make the cutest gift baskets ever and get paid to do it. Carol really is the greatest. We have been pretty busy with a couple of really big orders and the next week and a half is going to be the test. 140 baskets! WOW! Then because I'm too nice, or because my hubby's cousin does the best pictures around and I will do anything for free anything, I agree to "design" a booth for a bridal fair.... If It weren't for Marci I would be loosing my mind about now... So needless to say It will probably be a few days until I remember to post anything again. If it's too long, call me and make sure i'm not aimlessly wondering the streets talking to myself.  Crossing my fingers that everything works out and goes smoothly:)

Shots anyone?

Rhett's two year checkup went as follows:  Strip him down for the nurse, he freaks out and cries. Nurse measures his head (90 %), he freaks out and cries. Set him on the scale, he freaks out and cries. Check his height, he freaks out and cries. The nurse leaves, he sits on my lap cuddling with his blanket until he realizes it's "safe" to get down and play with the toys. The Doctor opens the door to come in but gets sidetracked by someone and walks away. Rhett runs to the door and shuts it, then runs to me and jumps in my lap and cuddles in his blanket. The Doctor came in talked to us, showed us Rhett's growth charts and everything is looking great. The Doctor checks Rhett's heart beat, Rhett freaks out and cries. Checks his eyes, he freaks out and cries. This continues while the Doctor checks his ears, legs, hips, and other varies things. Then he talked to us for a little while, in which Rhett calmed down but it still cuddled into me and holding on for dear life. The Doctor leaves and the nurse comes back in to give Rhett his shots. I stand up, still holding Rhett, and walk over to the table to lay him down. Rhett freaks out and wont let go. It's like he's stuck to me with super glue, I couldn't shake him. Finally I lay him down while bending over him and still "hugging" him. Needless to say his reactions to the shots were similar to everything else only quite a bit louder and a lot more tears. Back in our seat, Rhett still in my lap, the nurse leave the room and Rhett is still crying. I ask him, "Should we put on your clothes and go home?", he quickly responds, "Okay",and stops crying. He jumps down, gets dressed and walks out of the office without another tear. We went grocery shopping and picked him up some mini m&m's for his treat for having to be stabbed in the leg twice (which is what you would think happened to him for all the screaming). 
What a day. Glad it's over and that my little man has been happy as a clam since we got home. <3

Loving our Sabbath...all of it.

Today has been a great Sunday so far. Church was awesome and I loved the kisses Rhett kept giving me on my nose all through sacarament meeting...the joys of a slobbery nose. Preston makes his return today and we are so excited to see him. It's been way too long. Also on the list for today is a little trip up to PG for my niece's birthday, can't turn down some free root beer floats, YUMMY!  Carson and I decided that it was getting to hard to get all of our nieces and nephews gifts so instead we are switching to giving them 5 dollars, I'm sending her on a treasure hunt for her money though so it will be a little more fun then just opening a card. 5 dollars in quarters is her prize at the end of the hunt. I hope she likes it.

Lets see if we can do this blog thing again?...

WE HAVE A NEW BLOG.... mostly because i can't remember how to get to my old one:)
          Currently in the DEUEL house...
1. Rhett just turned two and is giving us a run for our money.
2. Carson is prepping for the hunting season with a general tag and a riffle elk tag.
3. I'm just trying to get through the first trimester with baby #2 waiting for October so i know weather it's Sawyer or Taytum in there....

Hopefully I will be better about blogging this time around, it would be nice to have some form of a journal with my thoughts and updates about what's going on in life:) here is a recent post from facebook that really made me consider doing a blog again, a memory I want to keep somewhere:)

Went to a great company summer party where Rhett was able to ride a horse for the first time, HE LOVED IT! Cried and cried when his turn was over. Then came home and realized my keys were missing (we had used the hubby's set to get there)......Started to freak out searching everywhere in the house without success:( My level headed hubby decided that we should have family prayer then and asked that
if Rhett took them he would be able to help us find them, and that if we miss placed them it would come to our minds.... I was sure Rhett had gotten them out of my purse and tucked them away where i would never find them, Negative Nancy is my name. As i was sitting at the bottom of the stairs calculating how much it would cost us to replace the electronic Mazda key a thought popped in my head, i ran to the garage and turned on the light and BEHOLD THERE WAS MY KEYS!!!!!! It wasn't Rhett who took them:) I'm just a nerd and set them down on the food storage bucket so i could do something else before i came in the house last night. I'm so thankful for little tiny answers to prayer... I know it doesn't seem like much, but it helps me to know that my Heavenly Father cares about the little things too:)
