More Pictures


I still don't have my blog back completely to myself, but at least I finally figured out how to access it again. Somehow, John's e-mail account hijacked my blog! I finally sat down and figured out what the new password was.

Too much has happened in the past few months so I'll just put up more pictures for now.

Preschool Christmas Party

Last night was Luke's preschool Christmas party. Talk about an eventful evening!
The party took place in the fellowship hall of the Presbyterian church, where his school is located. Because his school is a Co-op each mom has a different job, and mine is special events mom. Which basically means I get to arrive EARLY to the events. Which is quite the adventure when you attend ALONE with 3 children!

So, after giving explicit instructions on how the boys were to behave for the evening (that 1 mommy can't be in 3 places), we entered the hall of chaos and madness. Although the boys were doing the best to obey, it is very hard when all their friends are running around, jumping on the stage, and eating all the cookies and cupcakes they can find.

After the opening 20 minutes of appetizers the children were called on stage to sing their songs. Which amounts to approx. 40 3,4, and 5 year olds on stage. For their first song, they all held candles they had made out of construction paper. Unfortunately, before the second song, the little boy next to Luke, poked Luke in the eye with his "candle". Luke burst into tears and ran to his teacher. After a big hug, he bravely tried to regain composure and finish singing his last two songs. The next song was "Jingle Bells" and they all held bells in one hand as they sang. Because of his eye injury Luke sang his with one hand over his eye, fighting back tears, while shaking his bells and trying to sing along.

Before they went up to sing I told the father sitting near me that I was the "delinquent" parent who didn't even think to bring a camera, while all the other proud mothers stood around video taping their children.

After they sang, I told the same father that I now knew why I'd forgotten my camera.

The final HOORAY was Santa Clause. That part went fairly well, and I did have another mom take a picture of the boys with Santa.

I will post that picture as soon as she e-mails it.

Oh, and that leads me to the other unfortunate event . . . you'll notice in the picture that my boys are wearing batman, and Incredibles T-shirts, while EVERY other kid there was nicely dressed in their holiday finest. Christmas sweaters, dress shirts, even a few ties! And then my kid, standing out like a sore thumb, or should I say EYE.

quick updates

Mikayla: She is continuing to take a few steps and she FINALLY broke her first tooth through! It's been a busy week for her!

Luke: He is going to the allergist in the morning (Wednesday). We have always watched what he eats really closely because we've observed food sensitivities. Then, last Tuesday (Halloween) he had an allergic reaction to something. He broke out in Hives. Poor kid, they covered his face with welts and went down his arms, legs, belly, and bum. He was broke out in Hives until Saturday :( I initially thought he was having a reaction to his Halloween mask/costume, but his Dr. said it was more likely something he injested. Hopefully we'll find out tomorrow and he won't be too traumatized.

Logan: Not much new news here. He's currently healthy and growing. He was Batman for Halloween, of course.

John: SUFFERING! His back is hurting him so bad. I hope he gets the right help he needs to get better soon.

I have tons of pictures to post of all the latest happenings. Hopefully I'll get those up soon.
