Another Year Older

Yup, today is my b'day. Hasn't been a bad day so far. Got a beautiful homemade cake from one of my coworkers. It was almost too pretty to eat...almost. LOL

I also had a cake waiting for me when I got home that Andy and the kiddos made me. Haven't had time to celebrate yet as Kenzie has a soccer game tonight and then Andy and I have a bible study class. We'll celebrate when we get home from that. And for once, Alex doesn't have a ton of homework so he'll be able to keep and eye on the kiddos while we're gone without losing time that should be spent studying.

Okay, now back from bible study and have done cake and ice cream and got this lovely bracelet for a present. I love it!

Sick Day

One of these days I'll learn not to drive into work when I wait up feeling off because it makes for an extremely long drive home. I decided after being at work for 2 hrs that I really needed to go home cause I wasn't feeling well. Found out after getting home that Bekah had also been sick that morning so it looks like there is some bug going through the house. Let's hope it doesn't get everybody.

Homecoming Dance

Alex's school had their homecoming dance tonight...and he took a date, Sarah. Gosh, he doesn't seem old enough to be doing that yet. The evening started off with a prehomecoming party at one of his classmates house. Parents were invited to stay for the party, I believe, so they could be used as sources of transporation from the party to the dance. ;-) Andy then took Alex and Sarah to the school where the dance was being held where he was able to meet Sarah's mom since she had forgotten to bring her dance ticket with her. At the end of the dance I went down to pick them up and to take Sarah home. They seemed to have a great time as Alex said they danced the entire 3 hrs.

Andy had gallbladder surgery done this morning. He ended up getting the first surgery of the day which meant that we needed to be there at the crack of dawn. It's bad enough I have to get up early to go to work but it's even worse when you have to get up early to head to the hospital. Surgery ended up taking about 1 1/2hrs...then took another hour to get him into an observation room. From there things went downhill as trying to get anything out of the nurses was like pulling teeth. Started with him being given the wrong control to use for the nurses call button...good thing nothing serious happened cause we sure wouldn't have gotten any nurses with the control he had...and ended with it taking almost two hours to get discharged because of lack of communication on the different nurses part. Good thing is that the surgery went smoothly and dr indicated that it was good that the gallbladder had been removed as it was inflamed. Andy came home with 4 bandaids on his belly...pretty amazing when you think he had an organ removed through one of those tiny cuts. He has some good pain meds so so far he's doing okay. I'll be off for the next two days...took vacation for today and tomorrow...and will work from home on Friday assuming Andy is up to handling the kids some.

Keari's 1st Birthday

Hard to believe it's been a year ago that I brought home a new little baby. How things have changed during that year. She's gone from being a helpless newborn to an independant toddler. There's is no keeping her still...she's constantly on the move which I'm sure is one of the reasons that she is so small. She burns everything off. She also has a bit of a temper. Hmm, wonder where she gets that from...can't be from me. LOL She loves her brothers and sister...and they simply adore her. She's sprouted 3 teeth in the last month so needless to say she's been a bit cranky but now that they are through she's doing much better. And she loves real food...will eat just about anything you put in front of her.

Time to go Home

Josh has finally been released from the hospital. Yay! Although I'm a little sad that I won't get to see him as much now. He was in a hospital right down road from where I work so I've been able spend some time with him every couple of days. But I'm glad he's finally home and is doing well.

Happy Birthday, Bekah!

We now have a big 3 year old in the house and she's very proud of herself for accomplishing that feat. LOL She's such a person and has no qualms about expressing her opinions...and she loves bossing her brothers around.

A New Baby

and for once it's not mine. LOL My sister had her baby today...Joshua Logan, 8:41 am, 7 lbs 3 oz...born a month early...he wasn't due til Halloween...guess he was anxious to get here. She ended up having a c-section due to placenta previa and then had some trouble with bleeding afterwards but they were able to get that under control. He's having some issues with breathing and is in NICU but doing well. Congratulations Von and Richard!! You guys did good!
