Sick day Lego Fun ~ January 5, 2015 ~ Day 5

Posted by danaandtammy on Monday Jan 5, 2015 Under Daily Life, Kid Pictures

Today was supposed to be your first day back to school after Christmas break but you stayed home since you had a little fever and cough.  We had a great day of cuddling and watching TV with lots of breaks to build your new Legos.

With such a warm winter day in Wisconsin it was the perfect day for you guys to try out your new snowboards from Christmas.  Grandpa and Grandma Fish really have the ideal land for it at their house in Red Wing.  You both really seemed to get the hang of it quickly.

Kenny – You got pretty tired out after a couple runs but as a kid with mild cerebral palsy you were AMAZING!  We are so proud of your hard work and determination.

You might have fallen asleep if we stayed much longer!

Here is a video we posted on You-Tube from the day.

What a fun day of crafting with friends and a impromptu dance and gymnastic party.

The girls made window clings with puffy paint but unfortunately the wax paper didn’t come off very well.

With our living room still rearranged from Christmas present opening everyone had lots of room to do their dancing.

I love that you had fun doing gymnastics today with your friends but my heart is still aches that you chose to quit this fall.  I do hope that someday you can find something that you enjoy.

Kenny – you are convinced that you going to marry Kayla.

Unfortunately I don’t think she feels the same:-)

2015

Posted by danaandtammy on Thursday Jan 1, 2015 Under Daily Life, Health

Happy New Year from all of us!  2014 was definitely a hard year.  I have faith that we will look back and see how God was still faithful through all of it.  For most of the year I suffered from severe fatigue and pain and in the Fall my symptoms progressed to swollen fingers and a face rash which finally let to a diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis, discoid lupus, and raynauds. After a couple months of being on medication I am thankful how much I am starting to feel better.  The hardest part is that cold weather makes me feel worse and we live in the frozen tundra.

Last January I started a 365 photo project and I actually stuck with it until my health got so bad in November.  Maybe someday those pictures will get blogged:-) With a new year I decided to start fresh and start blogging again.  But this year I am going to try something different.  Most posts will be written to my kids – Emma and Kenny.  Writing isn’t my forte so it mainly be a picture journal but I hope that every now and then they will enjoy looking back at all our crazy adventures and know how much they are loved.

Wednesday ~ March 5, 2014 ~ Day 64

Posted by danaandtammy on Wednesday Mar 5, 2014 Under Art, Daily Life, Emma's creations, Kid Pictures

It’s always hard coming home from vacation.  Emma was back to school today and has a little homework from being gone.  Much to others disapproval I will always value travel and those memories together as a family over not missing school.

Emma is always creating new things; lately it has been fake food.  I’m always in awe of her creativity and wish I knew the best way to encourage her talent.  I have always said that I didn’t want to home school but I will admit that now I am at least considering it.  (But with us both being strong willed it might not go so well:-)

~A Day in the life of Kenny~

Thursday mornings he goes to our local school for a 30min speech therapy session.

Kenny loves to play in the shower or bath.

He also loves to take things apart.  Tonight Dana gave him an old computer part to practice with.

Although you can’t tell from his face Kenny was super proud to get his “high five” at school today.

I think Emma would make a great architect or interior designer!  Here is her latest creation.
