Thank you all for concern about Alex. No, he doesn't have the swine flu, and we are still not sure of the cause of the headaches. He had a migraine shot and has been taking Claritin, and high doses of ibuprofen. They have subsided over the last three days. Just in time for us to head for the beach in Florida! We're leaving early Saturday morning, and meeting 7 other couples kids. We are looking so forward to the break. I'll post some pictures when we return.

Last Friday, Alex started feeling sick and had a terrible headache. He had a week long work trip to Florida scheduled to leave last Sunday. He went ahead and went, but got worse over the course of a few days. On Wednesday evening, his work flew him home early. He saw the doctor yesterday and she wanted to run a cat scan and do some blood work. Everything came back normal, so he got a high powered shot to try to relieve his headache. It let up a little bit yesterday, but today he is feeling bad again. Please pray that we find the source of the headaches soon.

Brotherly Love

Here are a couple of recent pics of the kids. Oliver is pretty sweet to Meredith (unless she messes with his train set). I love sibling pictures, and Meredith is getting to the age where she interacts a lot more with Oliver. Her teeth are coming in like crazy, and she loves to show them off.

Garage Sale

The girls in my neighborhood had one MASSIVE garage sale today. Whew, am I wiped out. It was well worth it and we made around $1,400.00.....that's a lot of junk, people! Only a small part of that cash was mine, but I did sell our couch. Thankfully, the rain stayed away and we had a beautiful day. Thank you Zoe, for letting us invade your house and driveway. I'm sure we won't need to have another sale for quite some time.

Happy Easter

We had a great day celebrating Easter with our families. We went to church with my parents, had lunch with them, then on to the Unruh farm for dinner and an Easter Egg hunt.

Meredith's 1st Birthday

Meredith's bumble bee birthday party turned out to be very special. I can't take the credit. I have been battling the flu all week, and had no energy to make it happen. Thanks to Alex, his parents, Karm, Cristy and others, it turned out great! Thanks everyone.
