Saturday, December 13, 2008


The time has been flying by this year, especially the last couple months. So, maybe I should have written that it was my goal to take pictures every day and to post them when I had a moment.
So, here's my moment.

Tyson with a silly smile.

Keely's blankie (it was mine was I was a baby). I am going to start growing her bangs out since her other hair has caught up to her bangs now.

The Last Few Days

We have been busy and the time between now and when we leave for my parents (in 7 days) will go way too fast. So much still to do...but it's a great time of year!

Keely loves the tree (or maybe it's the ornaments). While she eats, she looks at the tree and laughs.

Tyson and I decorated a gingerbread house. He actually did quite a bit on it.

Luke sang twice this weekend. He sang at the opening of the Happy Valley City Hall and at the Grotto. These are pictures at the City Hall. The first one is of Grandma Clara (Tyson took it).

Tyson and Keely love balloons. I was trying to think of some art project for Tyson to do...so he decorated a balloon...or should I say several. The first 2 popped after he had decorated it for quite awhile.

Keely is growing up too fast. She turn *1* in 6 days. She loves to drive the bus.

She loves to stand up, but gets very nervous when the walker moves away from her.

Not the greatest of pictures...but I wanted to get a picture of her in her navy dress because it makes her eyes look even more blue.

A Pirate of a Day

Here are the cousins all dressed up. Well, Keely just wore her pirate shirt.
You can see that Tyson is quite pale. But, he had fun and then was very ready for a nap!

The other cake I made was for Braden's birthday. I made Braden a personal cake and then cupcakes for everyone else.

Busy Days

So, I didn't have very much sleep for 4 days in a row. When we scheduled Tyson's surgery, I had already agreed to do 2 cakes. Yes, that meant less sleep but I had fun making them. And, that means I have more pictures to add to my portfolio. Any one need a cake?

First Post Opp Day

So on Thursday (yes I realize I haven't posted in a couple days), Tyson wasn't doing very well. He didn't want to eat or drink anything. He also didn't want to take his pain killers. It was a BIG struggle to get him to swallow his pain medicine. But, he did want to paint in the morning and that was about all he did besides lay down and watch movies and sleep. Then about 12:30 he started throwing up. He threw up 5 or 6 times in 5 hours and then we really started worrying about dehydration. I called the nurse and she was pretty certain that it was just a reaction from the anesthetics. He did start drinking and keeping water down the rest of the night.

On Friday, Tyson was feeling so much better. He wanted to eat everything in sight. But, was still only allowed to eat soft foods and liquid. He ate quite a bit yesterday, but mostly his diet was still liquids. But, we did decorate his room a little.

Our Day

So our day started early. Tyson had to be at the hospital by 7:15...which meant leaving our house by 6:30. Luke took Tyson and I came with Keely later after she woke up. Tyson came through surgery well. He had some difficulty when the anesthetics were wearing off. But, not as bad as when he had his tubes two years ago. We were able to come home at noon. Tyson slept the whole way home and Luke put him in his bed when they got home. He basically slept until 2:00pm, with occasional waking up times.

Keely loves to read books. Especially when she gets to read them by herself.

I am exhausted. :) I am sure we will be going to bed early tonight.

Please Pray...

...Tyson is having his tonsils and adnoids out tomorrow. Please pray for him and for us.
Thank you!!


...I could entitle this another new bow, but I decided not to. I am trying to post new pictures of Keely every day from now until she turns one (in 15 days).
