Grandma and Grandpa Turpin went to church with us and then spent some time with us. We love enjoying the short time we get with them.
I don’t know why, but this year has been absolutely amazing – reds, oranges, and yellows. And our crazy garden!
Monday Jason went and took his motorcycle test at DPS. He is legal now. He is loving his 3 1/2 mile commute on his bike.
For Family Home Evening we made my favorite cookies and then delivered some to some friends. Joy loves Christmas!! “Merry Missmas!”
Sickness – just yuck! My poor babies! Who takes a picture of her poor baby getting breathing treatments? This Mama because the child is obsessed with selfies, so she doesn’t fight as badly when she can see herself on my phone!
It has been so cold – yucky cold!! Earlier in the week, Monday in fact, it was very nice outside!
Young Women this week was caroling - Jessi represented our family well.
Therapy – so many cancellations this week. Everything canceled for Bella and Joy. Alex only had PT and Speech, his other therapists were sick as well. Everyone is sick, it’s crazy!! We were working on wet vs dry using food and Brother said “eas” for please!! Yeah!! Our STA has now finished her externship. All our best to you Miss Lily!! Brother working on getting into chairs. He doesn’t like to be off the ground. I’ve got to get that solved – one year from now he’ll be in school and have to sit in chairs for 4 hours a day!
Jessi making a blanket for NAM. She loved the music notes pattern!
Brother checking out the wreathe made of jingle bells. He loved it!! He just laughed and laughed!
Bella improved through the week till she was finally back! So, so grateful for steroids and oxygen and for a doctor that trusts me to take care of her at home, pneumonia and all!!
Getting better, Joy actually made it to school one day this week! Ick! Here’s to a healthy week next week!! Sammi thought these tips cut from green onions looked like sea anemones!
Lizzy’s bracelets, cute Jessi, and playing the Wii
Thursday was Becca’s 18th birthday. It was so weird to not be making her favorite meals, to not be making her dessert, to not be buying her flowers and balloons. We called her. We texted her. We missed her. Happy 18th birthday Becca Lynn!
Saturday the girls and I went shopping (they loved these boots, we didn’t get them, but they loved matching!) Then over to Panera to meet my mom and sisters for lunch, only we went to the wrong Panera, so we enjoyed lunch by ourselves. Then onto the Nutcracker. They had a live orchestra!! The harps and the celesta were our favorite instruments! The percussion was pretty awesome too!
Jason and I off to a Christmas party.
Three short videos from this week:
Joy loves holidays! Love how she says “Merry Missmas!” and at the end when I tell her Merry Christmas, she answers, “Trick or Treat?”
