Oh my this picture does not do Lucy's "kissing tonsils" justice. They are so big. During Christmas time we all had strep throat, well I looked in all my kids throats and was astonished at what I saw in Lucy's mouth. I thought for sure she had strep as well. So we went to the doctor and to my knowledge they said she has kissing tonsils and you couldn't even see her boxing bag in the back of her throat, it's so weird. The specialist told us in most cases he would leave them in but she was the exception they were so big and she is so effected by her sleeping, and breathing that they needed to come out. So her surgery is scheduled for tomorrow at 6:30 a.m. as the week has progressed I have gotten more uptight and nervous about this. She had ear tubes put in so she has done anesthesia before but it's always nerve wracking no matter what. She is so strong and we are hoping for a quick and as painless as possible recovery. My heart really goes out to those parents and family members who have real serious health conditions and deal with these things on a regular basis we really have been blessed. On a lighter note my doctor asked if either Scott or I had ear tubes, or tonsils and adenoids removed. Of course Scott answered yes. The doctor said "don't you know your suppose to ask these things before you start producing children with them".........oh well they are all doomed I suppose.

They expect she will sleep more, have more energy, eat more, hear better, and perhaps learn better. Her body is focusing so much on getting enough oxygen to her brain that it could be affecting all these things, my mom has been telling me for years I needed to take her in to see a specialist because she snores so bad and breathes so loud that it was not normal. So we are hoping she feel better and things will change for her. Wish us luck

O.k. so this is the story of my life for about the last 2 weeks. I have been so stressed out that I have been not sleeping. Here it is 5 am and I'm laying awake in bed, so I decided to come blog loooosssseeeer. This is late for me this morning. The routine has been, I can actually fall asleep quick at night time, but when Talmadge wakes up in the middle of the night for a drink, I DO NOT fall back to sleep. Sometimes 2, 3, 4......I'm going crazy. Any suggestions. There is not enough caffine to keep me happy and going during the day.

Dancing Girls

These little girls are such a hoot. We have been doing dance since the beginning of the year, Lucy would go Monday afternoons and Thursday afternoons, Zoie would go Wednesday morning while Lucy was in school. It is alot of fun we dropped Lucy's Thursday class, it is so expensive she only wondered why she wasn't in the tap class for about a week then she was over it.
If your girls, and even boys love to dance, get them in classes they have so much fun, and really do learn the dance moves. This was there end of the year practice recital. They have a great big one coming up in May with all the foofy costumes at the Elsinore theatre and they are so excited. We got to watch with all the parents this practice recital, Zoie was not going up there for the life of her, Scott finally did some convincing with candy and I'm sure a date with dad and finally she joined the rest of the girls and did great. She is very graceful, and so serious when she is practicing.

Zoie was putting bells on her shoes so she jingled as she ran thru the middle of the room to jump over

Here is my little Lucy who is the dancing queen. She is the youngest in her class and by far knew all the moves the best and was the most graceful. Yes I am a proud mom. They got to wear makeup to this recital and Lucy's had to be "just perfect, like all the beautiful princess dancers". It's so amazing how fast they grow up.

She is so flexable as well and practices all the time at home, and tries to teach and boss her little sister around as to how to do the moves, and what they look like.

Last but not least the Sashay around the room. It was so much fun to watch and see what they have learned so far, I can't wait for the real deal in front of tons of people.

Way Behind

O.K. so sorry to all you religious blogger readers and posters. I just can't seem to get myself back together after the Holidays, I'm dreading downloading all my pictures and sorting through them all, I have a system set up in my computer that I sort all my pictures by kids, cousins, Grandmas and Grandpas and Scott and I. What a nightmare, but someday will be really useful. Needless to say it is a task to do. To all you who read this blog, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. We had a fantastic Christmas staying at home with just our 3 children we have not done that yet in our 6 years of marriage it was fun, don't get me wrong big get together's with everyone is fun too. We got wonderful gifts from friends and family, thank you very much. We have yet to send out our Christmas packages we are terrible I know. Grandma and Grandpa we have not forgotten you, just really behind the eight ball this year. I need to get back into the swing of blogging, I will get some pictures posted shortly..........until then
