Fun in the snow.
Fun in the snow.
More ice fishing fun with Papa.
I may or may not have drove around the lake for half an hour trying to find you guys just for my picture of the day:-)
After church we headed to grandma and grandpa’s house in Red Wing. With some unseasonably warmer weather you both enjoyed more great snowboarding. This time dad groomed a path with grandpa’s snowmobile.
This is one way to get back up the hill.
Before moving to Wisconsin I had never heard of “snow days” just for being too cold. Today was one of those days. The high today was -5 with a windchill of -40! With no school Emma spent the day with her good friends baking and crafting.
Kenny, Dana, and I spent our day in Marshfield for Kenny’s neuro. psych appointment.
My sweet buddy – I sometimes wonder what you think of all your doctor appointments or what it feels like to have a seizure or to realize that your left hand doesn’t work quite as well. At 4 months you were officially diagnosed with Unilateral Closed Lip Schizencephaly after a MRI revealed you have a little cleft or crevice in the right side of your brain. We had no idea what that would mean for you but you continue to amaze us with all the things you are able to do. You are currently on Keppra for your seizures but the doctor is still trying to find the right dosage for you to hopefully become seizure free.
Today was just a check up to monitor your progress. The doctor said everything looked good!
After we got back in town you joined in with the fun and helped make your frozen dessert.
Here are some of Emma’s creations from the day.
I’m not the only one trying to stay warm IN OUR HOUSE!
Love you buddy!
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.
Another fun snow day in the neighborhood!
Kenny had Kindergarten Open House at Crestview this morning but the best part was getting to go outside with Emma and friends at recess.
Emma is always designing and crafting new things for her American Girl doll room. Today she made an ice cream sundae. I love it!
We had another snow-cold day from school but the crazy part is that we had to keep our thermostat at 60 degrees because of a gas pipeline explosion. Landry spent the day with us and we tried to keep warm with all our electric space heaters.
Sweet cousins. What a blessing that we live in the same neighborhood!
Sunday afternoon family fun. I sure love these guys!
It’s never too cold for popsicles! Kenny’s favorite food group.
This is a rare sweet sibling moment.
Only in Wisconsin can you get 9 inches of snow and not have a snow day!
Thanks Papa Swany for snow blowing our driveway!
We had another snow/cold day today. The high day was -13 with a windchill of -34. When can we move somewhere warmer?!?! It really hit me today that my days won’t look like this next fall. I am not ready for Kenny to go to Kindergarten! I have to treasure each day.
Emma is enjoying her favorite YouTube channel – Bratayley.
Every year around Emma’s birthday we take a picture of her in Great-Grandma Maxine’s wedding dress and Great-Grandmother Virginia’s swimming suit. They usually aren’t great pictures but its fun to see how much she has grown since last year.
