cute pictures

Just some random cute pictures from the last few months including Bella's bday (Feb), Bridger's bday (Dec), Bridger driving the big bad truck, and Rilynn pouting because she only found 4 Easter eggs at the Community Easter Egg Hunt.

One Ugly Sick Momma

Just wanted to update you all on my progress. Some of you were aware that I was quite sick and spent some time in the hospital, some of you may not have been. But I am feeling good now. It was kind of a freak thing, I thought I had strep at first with the horrible sore throat and swollen lymph nodes but then I got swollen under my chin, and it was huge and hard as a rock. Skipping to the chase I finally got to a decent doc who sent me to the hospital where they did a cat scan and said I had an abscess, 75% chance I would have to have it surgically drained. He wanted me on steroids and antibiotics for two days before the surgery. Needless to say I did not end up having the surgery. The doctors were amazed. I credit lots of prayers, a positive attitude, and lots of veggies. I took my juicer to the hospital and had vegetable juice twice a day as I was on a liquid diet and couldn't chew food. Doctors still aren't sure why I got it because it's a strange location for an abscess, was not tooth related. Thanks again to all family and friends who helped out during this time!

Officially a Soccer Mom

Okay, so this is my first time posting a blog, so bear with me. Tony actually got this thing going! So Bella started soccer a few weeks ago. Let me tell you it is quite entertaining. The first practice she couldn't even kick the ball, it was more like pushing with her foot. She is coming along, getting more aggressive each game. At first she just ran around but never got in the crowd to have a go at the ball. Now she is getting in there at least trying to kick the ball, although most of the time she is swinging at air! It helps that Tony has bribed her that she'll get a chocolate chip for every time she kicks the ball! We're not opposed to bribery in our household.
