Update-ish

Things have been pretty normal (cough-boring!) lately.  I love a little fun and adventure, and we have been short on the adventure lately (never the fun though!)  We have been working our guts out on PA school applications (any prayers sent our way would help! :)) and I'm excited for the process to be over with.  I just want Jacob to get in this cycle soo badly!  Ahhhhhh.  Anyway, here's a few pictures I've snapped lately.
finger paint!
Jase is such a garbage picker.  He goes through and finds old nasty food and eats it.  Gross, I know.  Makes my stomach churn to think about it.  He also throws away money, toys, and dog food.  Oh sigh. 
We had chocolate pudding cake one night, and without seeing anyone do this, or anyone telling him to do it, he just picked up his plate and started licking it!! I should post the recipe on here, it is really good. Look for an edit later :) On a sadder note, Sammi spent 3 days last week in the hospital. So sad. We took her to the ER a little before 6 a.m. on Wednesday because her breathing just got really bad- she's asthmatic and was wheezing really badly all night. Anyway, we finally took her in, they gave her a bunch of medicine and breathing treatments and steroids (and don't tell me to try DoTerra Breathe-- we have and it doesn't help!!!!!!!!!). It was so sad. They didn't like her oxygen levels still, so they admitted her to the hospital where she stayed until Friday afternoon. It just took a long time for her lungs to start absorbing oxygen the way they should, and spending a long time on low oxygen levels can cause serious problems, including brain damage, so we kept her there where she could be on oxygen. On one hand it was a bit of a blessing because now we have a really helpful doctor who has done so much for her, and we are so grateful! Last weekend continued pretty much the same. We got home from the hospital, I got out of the car, my phone fell and the screen shattered, one of her prescriptions wouldn't go through, I forgot to take a salad to a funeral and to call one of my best friends on her birthday. Yeah, I felt like a real winner! :) Oh well, gotta have the bad weeks to appreciate the good weeks, right?! And this week has been pretty great! post signature
