Skyler has been moved to her big girl bed! We got the girls new beds and mattresses. It took about an hour for Skyler to settle down and actually fall asleep in her new bed. Hopefully, she will enjoy the new bed and not miss her crib. Let's hope for more successful naps and bedtimes.

This is her asleep in her new bed.

I almost forgot, it is mine and Chris' 6 year anniversary today. We had plans to go to the Melting Pot to eat, which is our favorite place to eat, but Skyler burned her hand about 20 minutes before we were going to leave. We had to cancel and will hopefully reschedule soon. Anyway, Happy Anniversary honey. We've been through alot during these last 6 years and I know we will have many more great years to come.

Have a great weekend everybody!
It has been too long since we last updated the blog. We have been doing pretty well around here. My ankle feels much better. It is still not perfect, but I can at least walk on it. Alana has been great. She is enjoying her Christmas break from school. Skyler has been okay. She got a fever at the end of last week that got up to 105. We took her to the doc and they said she had a UTI. She has been on antibiotics and is much better. This was her second UTI in about he last 8 months or so. Because of this, the doc thought she may have an issue with her urine going from her bladder back up to her kidneys. Her pediatrician set her up with an appointment on Friday at a radiology department at a different hospital. They did an ultrasound on her kidney's and bladder and then they put in a catheter and injected dye into her bladder and took a moving x-ray to see if the dye would go back up from her bladder to her kidneys. Thankfully, the doc's initial review of the x-rays and ultra sound showed that everything looked fine. The dye did not go back up to the kidneys. It was a terrible experience for Skyler and for us. She cried the whole time and we couldn't do anything to make her feel better. About 10 minutes after it was over, she did start to settle down. By the time we left, she was feeling much better.

Then tonight, I had turned on the iron and Skyler reached up and grabbed it. She burned her left hand pretty bad. She cried and I cried for quite a while. We put ointment on it and bandaged it all up. She settled down after a while and she was back to normal in about an hour and a half. We cut apart an old sock and made it into a glove to cover her bandage. In the last couple of pictures you can see her hand. Let's hope she has a good night and it heals quickly.

Anyway, here are some pictures from Christmas. The girls had a blast. They got all kinds of gifts from family and friends and of course Santa. Hope everyone else had a great Christmas and I hope everyone as a great New Year.
