Our week in review.

Monday: It was a pretty windy day, so Livee's asthma was acting up. She got to come home from school early. You can tell she was really upset by that. :) I am glad she can finally do the nebulizer by herself. We used to have to hold her tight, with her arms pinned down and she would scream the whole time. Now she comes and tells us if she's wheezy and then she goes and does her treatment.
Tuesday: We had activity days. I teach the older girls and my neighbor across the street teaches the younger girls, so we just combined our groups and they are learning a really fun Spanish dance to perform for their moms. I think we had about 15-20 girls over. A lot of fun, but a lot of giggling and screaming going on!

Wednesday: Livee decided she wanted to help with the yard work. She got some scissors out, and started trimming the weeds. I think Daddy felt a little guilty after that, because the next day there was not a weed to be seen in our yard! :)That night I had a Home & Garden party at my house. It was a lot of fun. I met four new neighbors and we are already talking about having a neighborhood party this summer. Thursday: I went to Enrichment Night and I was so glad I did. We had a dinner and then we went to different rooms that were all decorated to represent a different time in Jesus life. It was really special, and the Spirit was so strong. It was just what I needed! We were having thunderstorms that night and the girls get a little scared so they were in my room for a little while until the storm died down. Then we tucked them back into their own beds. This is what a found a little later. Zoe and Liv cuddled up together... so sweet.

Miles wasn't bothered by a little thunder and lightning! :) -unfortunately my battery died right after I took this picture so I wasn't able to get a pic of Paigee sleeping that night.
Friday: Miles had a Dr. appt. to recheck his ear infections. His infection is gone but there is still a lot of fluid in his ears. The Dr. said that he has twisty ear canals and it makes it hard for fluid to drain out. I have to make him an appt. with the ENT to find out about ear tubes. :(

Saturday: We had such a fun family day! We went to Costco to get some steaks for Livee's b-day dinner and had fun going to all the different food sample booths. The girls love doing that! Later we went on a bike ride/walk to the old Justin park. The weather was so nice and the kids love doing anything outside. It really was a perfect fun day!

Today: After church I made the kids pose for some pictures in a field by our house that has some wildflowers growing in it. Later family came over for Livee's B-day dinner. We had steak, mashed potatoes, and homemade banana pudding for dessert. Livee told Uncle Cody later that she was born on April 9th and April 20th that's why she gets two birthdays. :) Oh, I also got to try my very first crawdad (or is it crawfish?). My neighbor brought a whole bunch back from a weekend trip to Louisiana. I thought it was pretty good. Thanks Colleen!

Now that sounds like a busy, but very good week! What did you do for a Home and Garden party? Is that were they sale home and garden things? I am glad you had fun doing that and going to Enrichment. It is always nice to have some good girl time!

I loved hearing about your week. I hope that everything worksout with Miles ears. I can't believe you ate a crawdad you are so much braver than I am.

Lynda, We're so happy to be related to you SUPERWOMAN, we can't believe you were able to bear Livee's birthing pains twice within two weeks. Now where's the other Livee?
and we're glad that we scrolled down and found out that Paige is ok. We thought that something had happened to her. Last photo relegation is better than disappearance.
