Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Happy Valentine's Day, and Happy Snow Day! LOL :)

Well, I know it's been WAY too long. But, I do feel like I have a good excuse. We've been so busy, had MAJOR health issues, and have had what seems like a million holidays, gatherings, hospital trips, doctor appointments, etc, that we're just now getting a chance to catch our breath! We had a big-time scare with our babies, particularly Avery. Both babies were diagnosed with H1N1 and RSV (one right after the other). Avery's was extra bad because of her adrenal issues, and as a result, we almost lost her. Her levels were all over the place, she seized several times due to the rapid increase in her body temperature, and she stopped breathing. She had to be intubated, and breathed on the ventilator for 3 days. She got to stay at Cook Children's Hospital in Fort Worth from Wednesday, December 30th to Friday, January 9th. Needless to say, we didn't have a very fun Christmas break, but we are very grateful to have made it through this terribly difficult time, and VERRRRRY grateful to still have our sweet girl. Avery and Kenadee were BOTH sick, but because Kenadee's health is better in general, she had way less of a difficult time than her sister. Avery's ICU doctor called in meds for Kenadee and we were able to keep Kenadee with us at Ronald McDonald House (across from Cooks) and spend time with both babies while they got better. We had TONS of people praying for all of us, and we are so blessed to have such awesome friends, family & prayer warriors! Anyway, I'm attaching a bazillion pictures to this post. I haven't had time to update this blog in ages, and I have pictures from my trip to the Mavs game, our Christmas pics (before health issues really picked up), and misc. other pictures that I need to put on here. So, I hope you enjoy them & I'll do my best to update on somewhat of a regular basis (unlike the last 3 months)! :)
