Halloween cosutmes by the kids!

Halloween costumes this year cost me a whol of $10.00. It could have been even less if I had owned a white sheet! Here are the costumes that the kids have made for themselves.

Kali is a Ghost. Kaci is an Evil Witch (we still need to do her nails), and Kole is Spiderman disguised as Popcorn!

Aren't they just adorable! LOL I thought they were very ingenious!

Busy week and post surgery pics update

We have been very busy with school and activities this past week. Both Boyd and I have been on our second round of antibiotics fighting sinus infections or bronchitis... The kids remain well, thank goodness!
Kole is doing great since his surgery, we have allowed him to have regular food a little early but still not crispy hard foods...
Kali is off with the band today to watch some competition in Champaign... We are off to a weiner roast later today at some friends' home. Today was a cleaning day and I cracked the whip to get some bedrooms straightened up and the main living areas.
Kaci has taken to chatting on her cellphone with a friend from school who happens to be a boy. They talk about what is going on at school and their friends and what their plans are....

Post operative pics at 1 week and this weekend

Two days Post Surgery

I took these pics while Kole was feeling ornery. He was teasing Kali and she was teasing right back and he was laughing and giggling and smiling just 2 days after his surgery. There was no bridge work done that I know of, he is just still swelled is all..

They were playing the Wii and Kole had the controller. Anytime Kali would try to play, Kole would hit the cancel button on her.. He thought that was just hilarious until she came after him. Thank goodness no blood was shed and she stayed away from his nose.

A surpise call

Tuesday I was sitting in a meeting and my cell phone buzzed with a number I hadn't seen before, so I excused myself since they were working on some technical difficulties. It was a call from Shriners to tell us they had a cancellation for a surgery and would we like to have Kole's nose and lip revision done. I said when does he need to be there. She said tomorrow. So I called Boyd and we decided that he would go up with Kole. They checked in at 10:00 am on Wednesday and at 8:30 am today (Thursday) he was in surgery. He came out of surgery at 10:45 and was released at 3:00 pm to come home! He will be on a soft diet for two weeks and then back in 3 for a checkup. He looks amazing even with the swelling...
