5 Days and Counting....

Remember when my little Christmas tree said there were like 100 and some days until Christmas? How time flies! Kayla is perking up quite a bit tonight! She is back and speaking with a new lisp!

Kayla's Surgery

Kayla's surgery was successful this a.m. She had a rough time and wanted to leave as soon as she woke up from the anesthetic. Two hours later, we finally were able to leave. They took out her tonsils and adenoids and also did a frenulectomy (clipped her tongue). Her frenulum (under her tongue) has always been tight and when she sticks out her tongue it looks like a little heart. It was so tight it was pulling the gums off the back of her teeth. So....they went ahead and did that too. She finally stopped fighting sleep and took a small nap today and then hopped on the floor to start coloring. She kept getting upset that she was drooling on her artwork! Hopefully we will get some sleep tonight. If you are trying to call us, my phone line is messed up somehow inside the house. I tested it outside and there was a dial tone. I will keep working on it, I don't want to pay AT&T $25 per fifteen minutes to fix it! Call our cell phones if you need us. Thanks!

Please say a little prayer for Kayla. Tomorrow she is having her adenoids and possibly tonsils removed. She's been snoring like freight train, had frequent cold and ear infections. She will have her surgery in the a.m. and will come home afterwards. I know that she will be in the good hands of my coworkers. Hopefully she will be bopping around singing and dancing by Christmas!

Baby, it's cold outside!

Wow! What a great snow! I LOVE it! Chris is out snow blowing out our driveway. The snow is still coming down too. My friend Tricia measured the snow and she thinks we are up to a foot of snow. I have to agree. This is a great day to relax, bake some cookies, and get my Christmas cards started and hopefully finished! The kids were out just for a bit. Ryan decided to do somersaults in the snow. Chris and I saw "I am Legend" last night at the Strand. It was good, but a little too intense for me! Have a great day!

First Snow

Can you tell how happy these two were to get into the snow yesterday? Ryan forced himself into boots from last year that are 3 sizes too small just so he could go out!

I wanted to share some a picture and some video from Ryan's Elk Hoop Shoot contest. Kayla and I enjoyed our annual trip to the Nutcracker with Hannah and Tricia. It is one of my favorite things that we do together each year. Kayla was just mesmerized again watching the ballet dancers. We were lucky and got to hear the Fort Wayne Philharmonic perform the concert vs. listening to recorded music. The video is Ryan warming up for the Hoop Shoot contest. After warming up for over 1/2 hour he had no legs left for the contest and didn't get to move on. He had a great time and we were so proud of him for representing his school!
