My three

Yes, that is right folks....take a good look cause you might not ever see this again!

All three in one photo- COOPERATING!! This is a first and probably a last so take a good look. :o) Years of bribes- candy, movies, McDonald's, Littlest Pet Shop, trips to Target, pizza, ice cream, a new puppy- you name it!!

And how did I get this- just one pit stop at the gas station for lollipops (which I didn't even end up pulling out) and a break for pizza in between. Yes, it had to be a full moon. Either that or I am still dreaming!

Fooling around a little for some Christmas cards...whatca think?

Yup we went on a little road trip- I think that is what did it. Out faarrrrr in the woods around absolutely nothing for miles. Made for some fun and good exploring.

Kassie was riot with her "hiking stick"! This ended up coming home with us! Silly girls.

Gotta love when I take a road trip I end up with a van full of camera equipment, bags of clothes, a chair and various other props. Priorities people!! If we ever get lost in the woods I guess we won't go cold and will have some documents of our time. Come on you have to looove these boots! :o)

All tucked out ready for a nap...

I think they had a good time. :o)

Singing the Blues

Sooo sad....

Yes, she needs another surgery and it won't be done until after Christmas. I absolutely *hate* the thought of putting her through this again with another cast. Sad part is I am probably a pro at it now! So out we dig all the "cast" toys, highchairs, chairs, carseats and throw out the idea of potty training for right now. She is going to be TICKED I tell you when she wakes up in that awful hospital room. So for now she is just singing the blues...

Poor babe but I know it will only make her stronger. And no worries she really wasn't sad she was actually jamming to "twinkle, twinkle little star". This girl is SO dramatic with her singing!!! :o)

Ps~ Thank you for all your kind words!!

Pss~ Please excuse the hair that is what it looks like at the very end of the day!

Psss~ If anyone knows any good "hands on" toys for a 2 year please let me know so I can put them on her Christmas list for surgery time! :o)

Hope is that thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune without the words and never stops... at all. ~Emily Dickinson

Our wee peanut Kassie has her Ortho appointment on Wednesday. No ordinary appointment. If most of you remember Kassie has hip dysplasia. She had surgery and was casted for six long months and then was set free. But not quite free yet.

She may need another surgery more casting and maybe another one after that. Only the xrays will tell this week. Six months ago her doctor waved us out the door and said "have fun see you in six months"! My feet could not carry her fast enough out those hospital doors to began a new life...

I know life will go on if she needs another surgery. Maybe not how I hoped or dreamed for her but it will go on.

We came up with the idea to send her some warm wishes up to sky. Maddison came up with the idea at the last minute to send a message because how would heaven know what her wish is?

Gotta love her 7 year old writing!!! It reads: "Kassie is brave. But she is just a baby. She is 2. Take care of her. I love her."


Hoping for another day of running, walking, climbing, jumping and twirling...

Gotta love her bummed expression- wanting her balloons back!

♥ ♥ Love you Kassie- hope you fly higher than the sky on Wednesday! ♥ ♥
