Spring Break in Houston

Ok we have made reservations at the Yogi Bear Jellystone park in Waller Texas. March 14 to 20th is our spring break. Mom and Kati you could bring your trailers and Kimi they have cabins. This place has a water park and putt putt. Just something to think about!

Garber Christmas Program

I was actually impressed this year with the program. You could hear the kids in the play and the younger kids were awesome with their songs. Here are a few pics.


These are some pictures I took yesterday of the kids.

Beautiful Day

When I went out to take the kids out to the bus ( I always drive them up in the car so they don't have to stand in the cold.) it was so beautiful out. So I snapped a couple of pictures.

on the third day of Christmas...

...Grandma was there for me when I really needed her!

Chad's surgery to FINALLY repair his deviated septum was today & all went well. He has been more-than-usual nauseated & vomiting from the seemed extreme to me that he was still vomiting as they were wheeling him out the door to come home, but he's so much better now that I guess they knew what they were doing.

We had to be at the hospital at 6:30 & didn't leave until just after 5 tonight. Thank goodness for Mom chauffering Cade to & from daycare today. She stayed with us last night so she could be here when we left so early, got Cade up/breakfast/dressed, and to & from school. On top of that, she brought over all the soup, sprite, & saltines we needed, escorted me to the pharmacy for Chad's meds after he was propped up in bed at home, and then helped me get Cade to bed. I never could have made it through today without Mom, and I am SOOO thankful!

We had another EEG today just to make sure there isn't anything more than febrile seizures going on with Cade. Most children will outgrow febrile seizures by 5 years, and there is no correlation that febrile seizures cause epilepsy. So we are praying for another normal EEG & holding our breath until he outgrows this!

In theory, the test should be easy since Cade sleeps through it all. (This photo was taken just at the end when we were waking him up.) In reality, getting him to sleep in the middle of the morning in a strange place requires him to be sleep deprived by staying up 2 hours past his usual bedtime & waking up 2 hours before his usual waketime, then keep him awake all morning & in the car on the way. Then, try to get a toddler to curl up in your lap in a doctor's office with a strange lady sitting in the room with the computer monitors on & people walking up & down the hall just outside the door. Finally, after he's asleep the technician proceeds to scrub & place some 20+ electrodes all over his head & chest. I guess I'm saying if you could see me on the other end of the camera, it'd be even scarier! :) Cade was a trooper & did great. We'll get results soon...keep us in your prayers!
