We can't wait for the Super Bowl tomorrow.  We were going to go over to some friends house for a party, but Jay's been sick.  Poor little baby!  Anyway, we are decorating our house with red and black balloons - Cardinals banners and yummy food.  Here is a picture of a cute cake idea I got from a hershey's recipe.

This year my sister Megan and her family had our name for Christmas.  Megan really went overboard this year.  We are so lucky!  A few years ago, I remember looking at a picture of Christ that Megan had in Jace's room.  I told her I wanted a picture of Christ with children to hang in my kids room, but it was never with two babies or two girls.  Anyway, she had an amazing artist draw this picture to solve my problem.  I actually have a picture of my children with the Savior.  I can't help but tear up every time I look at it.    I don't think I will ever be able to thank them enough for our WONDERFUL Christmas.

(click on the picture to enlarge it - you can see it better - but it still doesn't do justice to the real picture.  I it!!)

Little Trooper

Savannah is such a good little girl.  She has been throwing up - out of both ends - all weekend long.  I kept telling Jay we were going to have to take her to Phoenix Children's.  We kept putting it off until she went about 6 hours with out going pee.  I was afraid that she was dehydrated so off we went.  

She was so cute to the nurses there.  Full of energy and talking up a storm to them.  She had to get IV fluids for an hour or so - then we were able to go home.  She cried when she got her IV - they had to try a couple of spots - and never once did she pull away from them.  The nurses let her go and pick out a prize for being so good and her main concern was picking something that her sister would like.  Sometimes I wonder about our parenting skills, but it's moments like that where I feel like we've done pretty darn good so far.

Gift Revenge

For those of you who don't know... Jay, bless his little heart, got me a HORRIBLE Mother's Day gift.  He got me a pull up bar and the perfect push-up!  Nothing says you look like Two-Ton Tina quite like exercise crap!!!!

Anyway, I got him the perfect Christmas present...

Brother LX-3125 

I wish I would have taken pictures, but I did get it on video!  

I had him hold it up to show my family his beautiful present.  Jay said something to the effect of, "Wow, something to bring out my softer side.  Now, where is the rainbow sticker for my truck?"  It was a perfect Christmas present! Yea for me!!!
