A very SAD morning...

This little guy had a very sad morning... But everything is looking up. He had to get tubes put in his ears today. He has had constant ear infections since last fall, and mom was very ready for tubes. You can only take so many sleepless nights.
Well after an early morning (we had to be to the hospital around 6:00 a.m.), with no food at all since last night, we made it. Spencer did great during surgery. The surgeon told us that there was LOTS of fluid in his ears. It had even turned to a gelatin form because it had been in there for so long. He struggled waking up and wanting to eat. So after letting him have a little too much juice and water, he threw up all over me about 5 different times.
We have survived and are on the mend!

P.S. McCall lost her other front tooth. She is toothless just in time for family pictures next week!

What a stud!!!

McCall LOVES her bike. She loves riding it everywhere. Lately she has been begging grandma Kaye to go on bike rides with her. So they have taken a few together. Well this morning Grandma called McCall and asked her if she wanted to go riding (and of course she was thrilled). When McCall got home she ran in and showed me her new duds that grandpa had bought her. They looked so cute. She has such muscular legs, that it was funny to see her running around in little bike shorts. Grandpa doesn't cut corners, he got her the real Pearl Izumi brand of bike clothes. Her little shorts even have the padding in them. The best part of all is that they match Grandma Kayes! Oh how she can't wait to go riding again tomorrow!

McCall showing off her new clothes. This picture shows the three pockets on the back of her bike shirt. She informed me that it is for carrying snacks, treats, water, or all kinds of things. I can't wait to see what finds its way into her pockets!

Posing by her bike. Oh to be six again...
(sorry for the fuzzy picts) my camera is dying a slow death!

It's been awhile...

Sorry that it has been so long since I have updated. We have been really busy. Summer is HERE! The kids are out of school, and swim lessons, play groups etc. have started. These are some pictures of McKinley's ballet performance. She was a clown and looked adorable. We went to her performance the night before we went to California. (sorry no california pics yet, I haven't had time to download them) But we had a great trip swimming in grandma and papa's pool, hanging out at the beach, and playing with our cousins!

McKinley got to wear make-up. In our house that is the best thing about a performance. She has killer eyelashes. I wish mine were as long as hers!

Our little family. Spencer wouldn't cooperate for the photo. But here we are!!!
