Movie Night

On Fridays we try to watch a movie or play a game with the kids. This past friday night we watched Spiderman 3. This was us halfway through the movie.

I had a great Mother's Day. We started out by the kids letting us sleep in until 9. Hannah woke up around 7:45 but played in her room until almost 9:00. Evan is sick and has been running a fever so he woke up at 5:50, I gave him Tylenol and he wanted to lay on the couch and watch TV but was glad to let me go back to bed. Caden woke up around 8:45 and played in his crib until 9:00 when Hannah went in to wake him up. I guess she got bored. Jason and the younger 2 kids and I went to church, Evan stayed home with my sister who is also sick. Then after church we went and got Panera and brought it home to eat. Ed & Arielle came over to have lunch with us. Evan was feeling better this evening so we went to the park to feed the ducks. Jason has done all the dishes, made the dinner, cleaned up the kids and played Scrabble with me.

Jog A Thon

Evan had a jog a thon at school last Thursday. I tried to put the pictures of Evan up first but Blogger changed them all around and I can't get them right. The kids and I went out to watch and had a good time, we were very please with the 17 laps that Evan ran ( 2 miles and 1 extra lap). He was exhausted that night but really enjoyed it. Maybe next year I will have a babysitter and I can run it with him.

First Food

On March 16th Evan had a surgery called a tongue flap, they closed his palate but to do this they took tissue from his tongue to close the whole and then they sewed his tongue to the roof of his mouth for 2 weeks. He did very well with the surgery and we stayed in the hopsital over night and were able to go home the next night. But Evan could not eat for 2 weeks, everything he would eat had to be in liquid form. Evan is a picky eater so it was tough making things he likes. The first few days he ate milk shakes of ice cream, milk and bananas. By the second week he was willing to eat anything, we got pretty creative and he ate Burritos in a shake, Pizza Shake was his favorite- he didn't like Waffles, Mac N Cheese or something else but I don't remember what that is.

He had surgery on March 30th to remove the tongue from the roof of his mouth and for dinner that night we had promised him Taco Bell.
