The kids are home!

Yeah! Mike and the kids got home about 7:15pm last night. Just in time to unload the van, get everyone settled, and turn on Wall-E to get the kids to stay in bed. They were obviously wound-up from the trip and ride. But, then so was Mike - the man didn't want to stop talking. Can't get him to say two words to me on the phone all week, and then he comes home and rambles for over an hour while we're trying to get to sleep! Go figure...

We followed the directions for Brenden's meds which means Mike stopped giving him the eye drops after his Sunday night dose. He was doing great - and then woke up yesterday morning with his left eye crusted over again... So we gave him two doses of the drops yesterday. I plan to give him the 3 today and 1 tomorrow morning before we leave for his follow-up appt with the dr. I'm thinking maybe he should have had the drops for 10 days straight instead of only 5...

I wanted to share a couple of photos from Christmas day...

LPS VIPs from Santa... But, I got the lap full of super-happy Brenden! LOL

The kids got a dress-up tote from Mommy & Daddy including this costume which Micaila had been begging for. I got them 75% off after Halloween. :)

It also happens to be my niece's birthday, and Micaila made her a special card...

Mike had messed with my camera settings while I was in the bathroom so all the candle pics are in sepia...

So she posed for a fake candle shot with Micaila after my camera got corrected. :)
