We had super weather today. Chilly, yes, but sunny. After the doctor visit we stopped at the Silverdale waterfront park. Again, my camera phone. Now that I have a blog, I need to keep my real camera with me.

Bumps and Bruises of 2008

Today as I took the kids to the doctor for Easton's checkup I was reminded of our last years not-so-fond memories. I am so thankful to have 3 healthy kids. Just wanted to share a few for my "journalling" sake and also for those of you that want to know...(p.s. these are from my camera phone, so please excuse the quality)
At 6 weeks old we took Macy to the ER, diagnosis: a respiratory virus. They put her in the cutest little gown and she could have not been a better patient. Smiles for everyone...

In March at Peyton's 4th birthday party she fell. The next day she said her wrist hurt, but insisted going to preschool because we were taking cupcakes for her birthday. I later took her to the doctor, sure enough, a broken arm. She got a purple and pink cast. What a trooper. She is a tough little girl.

Later that year, Macy came down with Rosiola, a horrible rash that came and went in less than a day.

Just before school started back up, Easton had a terrible accident at church. The kids were playing a game of running and spinning, lost his balance and hit a square metal pole. Fortunately there was a doctor there who helped. Again, to the ER we went. He got 22 stitches (7 on the membrane over his skull, 15 on the outside.) One of the most terrifying times of my life. He was pretty upset too, especially since he had to miss soccer, recess and PE for the first 3 weeks of school.

2008 was also full of fun and exciting times which I will share in later posts. We are praying for a healthy uneventful 2009 :).

Yesterdy Peyton and I heard a bang on the living room window so we went outside to check it out. We found a bird on the ground, still alive, barely. I was preparing myself for Peyton to be very upset and probably wanting to somehow help it. Instead she bent down to it and said "little birdie, you should have watched where you were going" and went back in the house. No sympathy there.

Easton turns 8

Can't believe our boy turned 8 on January 8th. He is such an amazing kid. So smart and just loves his friends and family. We had a small family birthday here at the house, then he invited some friends for a pool party. So much fun!


Well I did it. After many months of planning, thinking, fretting, I did it. I created a blog. After pouring through name after corny name, here we are. Hope you enjoy. My purpose for this site is to start a journal for us to look back at later and to keep family and friends up to date on what's going on with us. Thanks for visiting!
