Veteran's Day Program

Shelby had the cutest Veteran's day program.  They memorized all the songs for the different branches of the military and sang them.  As usual, I was the emotional sap in the back. 

Shelby's MRI

 After the IV was put in.  Such a brave girl!
As she was falling asleep.
Shelby had to have an MRI to try and figure out some abnormal blood work and recurrent sickness she has been having.  They had to put her under sedation while they did it so I was nervous.  Shelby did so good.  She was so brave when they were putting her IV in and didn't cry at all as they were preparing her for the MRI.  I am so grateful for Primary Children's Medical Center.  They are all amazing there and they do great work.  We found out the results of Shelby's MRI.  She has some mild brain damage in her cerebellum.  They think it is from her being a preemie.  The Dr's thought that Shelby might have some mild delays her whole life but we can deal with that!

Fall Vacay

On Thursday the kids, Debby and I went to California. When we got to the hotel on Thursday afternoon we went swimming and ate a lovely dinner that the hotel provided. On Friday we met Michele, Samantha and Michele's sister Pam at Disneyland.  It was the BEST!  I get more excited then the kids about going to Disney.  I shed a tear.

 They already had the Christmas decorations up.  It was beyond beautiful!

 One of the major highlights was getting to visit Car's Land.  Keaton was in heaven.  It was very well done.  So cool.

Keaton even got called up to dance with a car in Car's land. 
After the park closed we drove to San Diego and stayed with the Clarke's until Sunday afternoon and then flew home.  It was such a great trip.  

Daddy date with the kids

One of Tuckers all-time favorite things to do is to spend time at his parents cabin. So if it involves spending time with the kids and being at the cabin, then he is in heaven!  He took them up with his dad a few weekends ago.  The kids had the greatest time.

 They LOVE the tire swing.

 The kids with grandpa
 I love Shelby's face in this.
