Animal Haven Zoo

Our favorite thing to do at the cabin - go to the Animal Haven Zoo. It may have been a tad chilly but that didn't stop us from making great memories!

Merry Christmas Eve

Merry Christmas Eve!
We were asked to be the Advent Family at the church service this afternoon. The children each said a phrase of the family prayer. They also memorized part of the Christmas Story from Luke, "Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to men on whom is Glory rests." It brought us so much joy to see the kids eagerly memorizing God's word - hiding it in their heart.

3 and 5

We had our 3 and 5 year well-child exams earlier this week. Here's where the kids are at:

Emmett - 5 y/0
Weight: 38 lbs, 29%
Height: 40.25", 7%

Eisley - 3 y/o
Weight: 29 lbs, 30%
Height: 36.25", 24%

I honestly expected Emmett to weigh more and Eisley to weigh less. Of course the only thing that's important is that they are growing at a healthy rate. Now just to keep everyone "well" :).

Caution - you probably don't care about this. I'm trying to document our bouts of sickness over the past 2+ weeks. I'm a bit concerned why Ender keeps getting sick, so I wanted to write it all down somewhere.

We've been sick at our house - for a long time. I wanted to write it down somewhere to keep track. I know this isn't totally accurate - but I can't quite remember the dates. I know that for the first 2 weeks we didn't go more than 1 night without being awoken by vomit or diarrhea soaked sheets. Then this last week we were totally clear for about a week till early this morning when Ender got sick again.

11/19 - Emmett wakes vomiting, ok during the day, vomited again that night
11/21 - Ender wakes vomiting
11/24 - Eisley has diarrhea all day
11/25 - Eisley wakes vomiting
11/30 - Eric vomiting
Ender has a fever for about 2 days in here somewhere.
11/30 and 12/1 - Eisley has hives
12/1 - Ender wakes vomiting, diarrhea
12/2 - Eisley does a weird vomiting/gagging thing, but that's all
12/3 - Ender has diarrhea
12/8 - Ender wakes vomiting, diarrhea all day
