From Pneumonia to Ears...

Just when we think we have our Kylie back, we hear a call for help at 4 in the morning. Poor kid has a massive ear infection... ahhh.... so, back to the doctor again this morning. For those of you who are counting, that is 5 visits to the doctor (one of which was Anika).... I think we might be done for a bit, please!!!

We are hoping this will end out visits to the doctor in February, but at this rate, I think we can permanently purchase a room at the lovely office. Ahhhhhh....

Pneumonia go away, we want Kylie back!

Our weeks worth of doctors visits. This is Kylie midweek attempting to get better. The poor girl was miserable and we could do nothing to make her happy. Odin did not leave her side at all and did not like it when she left to go to the doctor. Talk about a loyal hound......

And this is Kylie 24 hours after taking new meds and a good 3.5 hour nap today. She is a new child and wanted to pose for the picture. We missed the crazy Kylie and so did Odin (I think he just missed his gravy train since she did not eat for 4 days)
Now the goal is to keep the twins healthy, but the cold, cough and runny nose have started for Anika... Shay is probably a day behind.
Until next time.....

Party Pictures

And more from the 1st birthday..... Lily, (my brothers little girl), turns one a week after the twins, so all three little girls got to destroy these HUGE cupcake cakes my sister in law made... Aren't the cupcakes unreal!?!?!?

Twins turn 1!!! WOOOHOOOO!

We've all made it a year and everyone seems to still be happy.... well somedays... Kylie has taken the big sister role VERY seriously and usually helps us out quite a bit. Shay and Anika are two totally different kids and are quite funny to watch. Chris and I, well we just make sure the coffee is made every morning and there is creamer in the house--- otherwise, it might be a really ugly day here at the house! :)

Here are some pictures of the girls on the "big day." (And yes, the Dora themed party supplies from the week before got to be used again).

Amanda's Dora themed B-day Party

For the last 3 weeks all Kylie could talk about was "how many days till mommy's birthday?" Kylie had planned the bash for her and on Saturday she went and picked out all the party supplies including Dora hats, Dora plates, Dora napkins and a special hat just for the birthday girl.

Kylie was also very excited to make mommy's cake! She melted chocolate, dipped strawberries, bananas and raspberries! Mmmmm was it yummy!

Amanda wanted to change the position of the candles but Kylie wouldn't allow it!

What a fun day we all had!
