Day 19

June 25th, 2011

Tonight we had the missionaries over for dinner.  After dinner it's typical for the elders to share a message.  They had a very entertaining and unique message for us tonight, the Mormonized version of Dr. Seuss' book Green Eggs and Ham.  

Day 18

June 24th, 2011

This morning Jadon and I went up to Emmanual Hospital so Jadon could have an MRI to see if anything can be found that may have caused his grand mal seizure on the 12th.  He did a fantastic job and I held up pretty well too.  We are still waiting on the results.

Day to of camping.  Grandpa and Jaren went fishing.  Jaren thought he caught something, he felt a hard tug on his line.  When he pulled the line out of the water the bait was gone, so he thought he caught a really big fish.

Day 6

June 12th, 2011

Today is a day I will remember for the rest of my life because I have never been so scared.  Jadon had a seizure and went unconscious this afternoon. For a moment I thought he had died.  Thank GOD he didn't.  I called 911 and he went in an ambulance to OHSU.  As Thomas Paine said, "These are the times that try men's souls."  My soul was tried today. When I went to pick up the rest of the kids from my mom's house she had this plaque for me.

Day 5

June 11th, 2011

This afternoon we went to our ward picnic at the Ruscliff building.  There is a meadow behind the building the kids enjoyed playing in.  I thought this was a nice picture of Jolie in the meadow.

Day 4

June 10th, 2011

I found the boys napping in the family room recliners this afternoon.  They sure do look comfy!  

Day 3

June 9th, 2011

Jaren posted this sign on his bedroom door, if you can't read it it says "come in, come in".  He's welcome to anyone coming to visit his bedroom.  Sweet kid!

Day 2

June 8th, 2011

This is what I drink on a daily basis, at least for now.  It's called the green genie, made up of all sorts of healthy stuff.  It really does taste better than it looks.

Day 1

June 7th, 2011

Today is Jadon's 2nd birthday!  We celebrated by buying each kid a balloon from the dollar store, going swimming and eating cupcakes and popcorn for dessert.
