11 Months and Counting...


Still doing school. Still painting. Still cute.
He won me a Kitchen Aid mixer off the Pioneer Woman blog. I picked the yellow one. I'm SO EXCITED!!!!!!


When I read that Jason won the mixer I started screaming and jumping up and down. Elaina thought I had lost it. And I had.


Elaina is desperate to be big so that she can blow bubbles with her gum, snap her fingers, and roller skate. If only that was all that was involved in "being big." Her reading lessons are going well. There is a video of her reading on Facebook you can watch if you are my friend. Last night after her bath, Jason noticed that her neck looked strange and we checked and there were two substantially large, hard as rock knots on the side of her neck. Her hair was covering it before and we never noticed it. I took her to the ER and it ended up being strep throat which is really bizarre because she has no symptoms. Other than the neck deformity.


She's getting better. Sweeter. Nicer. Except today at Eily's dr appointment. Then, she was downright embarrassing. Her hair seems to have finally decided to grow and looks somewhat like a little bob. Her biggest desire right now is candy. Please, no one send/give us anymore candy.


Eily woke up with a low fever this morning. Normally that wouldn't send me to the dr's office but since Elaina has strep throat I figured I'd better not take any chances. She doesn't have strep but she does have another double ear infection. This makes her 5th round in her short life. Poor baby. We go to the chiro again tomorrow so maybe that will make a difference.

Jason and I leave for DC in a few weeks.
Our 2nd shed is still not built. Will it ever be dry enough for that man to come build it????
We're staying busy and dreaming of lazy summer days.
I'm planning on taking the girls to Harmony Hill this June.

How about you? What's your summer plans? Anyone traveling? Anyone doing summer school? Do tell all.

That is so great that he won you a Kitchenaid! A couple of years ago, someone gave me one that they never used anymore and it's woooonderful. :) Enjoy your yellow one! I love all the neat colors they come in now.

1st of all, my parents got us a kitchen aid for our wedding almost 5 years ago and I LOVE IT SO MUCH...couldn't live without it! Excited for you! AND...i have thought this for awhile but forget to tell you...that I think Claire and Trevan are soul mates. They sound the exact same...right down to the candy. He has earned the nickname 'Trevan the Tornado'...I love him so much and simultaneously thank God everyday that he wasn't twins HAHAHAHA...

anyway i love your blog, just thought you should know :)

keep in touch!
