It has been so long since I've updated this blog. I now have one forth of 2011 to catch up on. For our family, those three months can be summed up in these three words, sickness, sickness, and sickness. I feel like we haven't been healthy forever.
January started for us with a wicked stomach flu, now known in our family as Satan's Flu. The entire family had it, but Emery was hit the hardest. She was so dehydrated she had to have IV fluids and many tests to make sure it wasn't something more serious than the flu. Three weeks went by before she was feeling better. It was all very scary.
Fortunately, by January 5th we had reached our insurance deductible. Why is that fortunate you ask? Because the rest of January and February and March involved more doctor's visits for everyone. Sinus infections, strep, bronchitis, random coughs, asthma problems. Spring please come so we can be healthy!!
On to happier thoughts...
Emery's 2nd Birthday!
Sadly the dentist said that 2 year olds must say goodbye to their binkies. Cutting the top of off didn't work, so we went cold turkey. The result...72 hrs of non stop screaming.
Emery's favorite birthday present was this doll house. After she opened it her brothers helped her put it together. They all played so gently and sweetly together with the little Fisher Price family. After about a half hour I was in complete disbelief that my boys would play with a doll house. It was at that point that I hear Marc say, "Hey Rylan, where did you put the dad doll?" Rylan responds with, "He's back there behind the couch, he got beat up, and robbed!"
Oh yes, these are the boys I know!
Two year old's need big girl beds. So here is the first night in the Tinkerbell bed. It was a success!
I'm pretty sure this girl will become a great missionary. She spends much of her day sharing the scriptures with Daisy.
Marc took 2nd place at the science fair with his project Worthless Weatherman? For one month he tried to predict the weather using folklore, and then he compared his forecast to KSL's.
His forecasts were correct 50% of the time, compared to KSL's 58%. It was an awesome project and he worked really hard on it (so did his mom.)
