Hunter's Kidney Update

November 27, 2013

We have reason to celebrate! Hunter got the A-OK from the kidney doctor yesterday.... His kidneys look "perfect"! We have been monitoring his right kidney since I was 20 weeks pregnant. He had surgery on it when he was 2 1/2. That's was almost 2 years ago. He is now 4 and has been thru a lot of kidney stuff in the last 4 years! He has been a brave trooper! Awesome job Hunter!

Fisher the Engineer

November 6, 2013

Fisher should grow up to be an Engineer....and Train Engineer that is.  He loves to play with the train.

The little pink hearts

November 1, 2013

Ok, so why post these pictures?? I started noticing these pink paper hearts all over the house. It took me a minute to realize what thy were for. Justin has been doing small acts of silent service and leaving hearts behind!

  He took the laundry basket to the laundry room.

And picked up the toys without being asked.

He has done lots of other things too! Thank you to his sweet primary teachers, Rob and Sarah Hiatt for challenging him to do this.

Halloween 2013

October 31, 2013

Oh my, Halloween is always so busy and this year was no different.  I didnt even get very great pictures of the kids in costume.  Today Fisher didn't have school at Learning Dynamics so he was my helper all day.

Here is Batman, AKA Fisher.

And Superman, AKA Justin.

And Spiderman, AKA Hunter.

Today Fisher and I went to Thunder Ridge to see Justin in the costume parade, then we went to Pony Express to help with Hunter's class party, then back to Justin's school to help in his class party. Then me and the boys went to see Tyler at work.   All in all, very busy, very fun!

This is Justin's cute teacher, Mrs. Schmidt, at Justin's school costume parade.

Thank you to the class party treat bag, Superman turned into Dracula Superman.

As part of Justin's class party I was in charge of the toilet paper mummies!  
The kids had fun with this.

Fisher was able to participate in Hunter's class party this year.  
He had a lot of fun being there with Hunter.

 Tyler dressed up this year.  He stayed with the superhero theme and went as Clark Kent.
Clark Kent and Spiderman...

The boys were so anxious to get home and go trick-or-treating that they were bugging each other the whole way home from Tyler's work. 

 Hunter was his normal happy self along for the ride with one sock on and his feet by his ears.

And finally, they went trick-or-treating.

The boys LOVE Halloween and all the fun and games that go with it.
