So Makenna now has an ear infection. I took her to the dr. a few days ago. She is now on antibiotics. I have a sinus I am on antibiotics. This not getting sick thing....well it isn't working! Hopefully Bryn will not get sick. The dr. said that he thinks Bryn will get sick right before surgery...because that is just the way it works. I am praying that for once...he is wrong. We are down to less than 2 weeks before surgery. I am so nervous/scared/excited for this surgery. My grandma just had knee surgery and all went me that is a good sign and hopefully things will go that well for Bryn. Tyler is still healing from his dirt bike incident. Ty is getting ready to go to New York to represent his school at a business function. Bryn has her pre-op appt next week. I am ready for my mom to come. It is so nice when she is here!

The Past Week

Seems like we have been so busy lately. About a week ago I took Bryn to the dr. She had a double ear infection. No fun! Then Kenna had her 1st soccer game last Saturday and her 2nd one yesterday. She did okay in her second one. Was a little tired because Friday night we stayed up late. We had gone to the state fair and saw the Monster Truck Rally with our friends. Makenna had school and gymnastics on Tuesday. We went to playgroup on Wednesday. Bryn had therapy. Yesterday we went to our ward picnic. Tyler went dirt bike riding with Jen and Greg and he crashed the dirt bike. He is pretty sore, has some burns on his leg, bruises on his arms and legs...but overall he is okay :). I went to girls night out last night and saw Fame. Now we are all exhausted trying to recover from the week.

Isn't she cute?! This is the smallest jersey they make and it was swallowing her!

Makenna had her first soccer game today! She made the first goal of the game. She made 3 goals by herself and assisted on a 4th. Go Kenna! She did have a lot of tears and crying at the beginning because people were taking the ball away from her. But we got her settled down. She had a lot of fun. It was raining/sprinkling the entire game. It was fun that Kenna played the team that her friend Gwen and Blake on it. And sure enough...I was able to capture the first goal and then my camera ran out of batteries! Bummer!!!

Froggie Jammies

She has 4 teeth on bottom
She has 4 teeth on top. The 2 side ones are almost in. Excuse the sweet potatoes on her face. I didn't clean it up before I took the pictures.

I absolutely love these jammies. They are so cute. I was able to find matching ones for the girls.

The past week has been a time of much reflecting for me. I have thought about how much I love my family. My girls aren't perfect, but they are perfect for me. Bryn is one of the happiest, funniest, most cuddly babies I know. I can't stop kissing her. She is just so darn cute. Makenna is so smart, funny and fiesty. She says things every day that amaze me. I have had so much fun with them lately. Makenna is getting ready for her first soccer game this weekend. She has been in preschool one day a week and doing gymnastics. She is a social butterfly. I love to hear all the things she learns in school. She has been into wanting to talk on the phone and text. Yes...I know. She is 3 and she wants to text. I just love my girls. Tyler and I have been talking a lot more lately. He is making time to be with the family more. We enjoy spending time with girls. I love this fall weather we are having. I love the rain. I love cuddling in my bed in the morning with the girls, watching cartoons. I love the time I get to cuddle with Bryn before she goes to bed. I love how Kenna wants to grow up to be just like her mommy. I just can't express how much I really love my family! We aren't the perfect family...but we are perfect for each other!

BYU beat OU 14-13!! GO COUGARS!!!!
Tyler and I were lucky enough to be able to go to the game! My little brother, Steven, is #24 for the Cougars. We were able to get tickets through him and meet my parents in Arlington for the game! The Cowboy Stadium is AMAZING! Our seats were not bad. It was so intimidating to be in the stadium with all those OU fans. Driving around the stadium before the game...all we saw were OU tents. I told my parents that if someone yells "Boomer" everyone yells "Sooner." So to prove we drove around I would yell "Boomer" out the window and people would all yell "Sooner" back. It was hilarious! Going into the stadium was intimidating. There were only about 3 setions that were blue. The rest of the entire place was in crimson and cream! It was nuts. The crowd was going crazy. We sat in the family section for BYU! I had a blast. I was jumping up and down and screaming the whole time. I lost my voice! Steven was on the field a lot for punts and he even caught the kickoff and returned it for 22 yards! How cool is that! I was so proud of my little bro! Cougars deserved this win and probably would have won if Bradford wasn't injured! Bradford didn't get hurt until there were seconds left in the first half. BYU had held the Sooners to 7-0 at that point! Both teams weren't perfect...but BYU kept focused and was able to pull it off! After the game I was able to go see Steven. He was pretty excited about the game. The Sooner fans were pretty awesome though. We didn't hear anything bad after the game and they all said good game and were pretty nice! Very classy! Before the parents and I went over to the hotel where the players were staying to see him. It was so cool to see little kids run up to him and ask him for his autograph because he was a BYU football player! I am so happy I was able to go to the game. The atomsphere was so much fun it was a great 1st time college football game experience. Thanks to my parents for a great weekend and to Jan for watching the girls!!!!

Kenna's First Day of School

We went to Sonic and she got tater tots and apples for breakfast. That is what she wanted!

Kenna was so excited for her first day of preschool today. Before school, I took her to get breakfast. I asked her what she wanted and she said tater-tots. So we went to Sonic. We sat in the car and ate. Then I took her into school. I walked her in and tried to kiss and hug her goodbye and she pushed me away and said, "oh mom!" So I told her to have a good day and be good and I left. I picked her up at 2:30 and she was too busy playing playdough to say hello. I asked the teacher if she was good and she said yes...but also very talkative. So since Kenna was good, I took her for a treat. She asked to go to Braums for cookies and cream ice cream. She looked so cute today. I can't believe I have a child that is old enough to be in preschool!
