Kristi's Birthday!

A week or two ago Kristi had her birthday and we got to celebrate with her! It was really fun, going from delicious ice cream cake to all the kids giving her a massage/foot rub/hand rub/anything else you can think of! We had had a fantastic time! We love you Kristi and Calton and Camden! We are SO glad you live close enough to us that we can party whenever! WE LOVE YOU! Happy belated birthday Kristi!

Sick Kids!!!!

We have had a pretty rough all started when Isaac got hives and started swelling up all over. The doctor said it was probably a virus and just to take ibuprofen and benadryl. Well, when Kate came home from school we heard "My back is itchy!" Uh-oh!!!! That night, Clara woke up with a fever and a bad cough... Two kids home from church!!(We found at 2 or 3 other kids were sick that day, too.) Well, Monday morning, Isaac decides he is feeling good enough to go to school... and came home with a REALLY badly swollen lip, hands, and feet. Doctors AGAIN!!! Anna also came down with what Clara had, so she missed school. Tonight we all had hot chocolate and scrambled eggs. Off to bed, everyone!!!!

P.S.- sorry we don't have any pictures... we could have gotten some really good shots but no one would approve.

Happy Valentine's, Happy Day!

Valentine's rush has come and gone - once again Mom survived but has lots of housecleaning and laundry to catch up on after the big week of making and delivering tons of Valentine's cookies, hosting class parties, and wrapping up sweet surprises for her own children. The only regret she has is not getting pictures of her Valentine's - they never looked so cute - ALL of them!- as they did Friday morning dressed in Mom's love (new outfits). Friday night we enjoyed celebrating as a family at the Magic Treehouse event downtown - LOVED Jack and Annie! Poor Isaac spent the entire weekend very ill, fever, rash and swelling all over his entire body!
Saturday brought more celebrating, Mike participated in three weddings, CaMarie accompanied him to one, Emily and Anna headed out the door dressed to the hilt for a friend's Valentine's tea, returned home later to head off to the bounce house with a friend for fun. The kids enjoyed more Valentine's candy and cards and PLAYING uninterrupted all day long while Mom and Dad were busy with the Stake marriage enrichment Valentine's event. Hurray!- it went well and was so enjoyable! Sunday night we opened our own family Valentine's to one another - the kind words were enough to buoy us up for another week! The girls also spent Sunday afternoon reenacting Saturday's tea party for the little girls - so sweet and precious to hear Zoie, alias "Miss Lily" so politely say, "May I have some Miwk?" English accent raising milk at the end, and upon Emily's spilling it she cordially stated, "Dhat's awright, Dawling." Happy days for all of us - and no more blogging now I've got a week long party to pick up after!

Love, Mom

P.S. I feel so lucky to have received 2 dozen white roses from my love - he said he wished he could have had time for the "special plans" he'd been anticipating - but what could be more romantic than spending the weekend LOVING each other, our children, and the stake? (Singing with him, being on the marriage panel with him, and dancing with him was very romantic too!) Love, Wife
