The past few days have been good days.
After MUCH trial and error, I finally figured out how to help Virginia's face. And, it won't cost me a thing, actually, it will save me money! I needed to turn the heat down!! The dry heat was bothering her skin! Once I realized it, I turned the heat down 4 degrees. I realized it Sunday night while Alex was at work, and by Monday morning, I could already tell a difference! In a matter of days she went from looking like this:
Every time I looked at her face Monday I was amazed! Her legs are clear (just a little dry) and her arms are healing nicely. She'd dug them up Saturday night. Now I no longer bundle her up and cover her hands at night. Sunday I was a tad nervous as I put her in tights, pants, and a T-SHIRT, I thought she'd tear at her arm, but, she didn't touch it!! And she hasn't yet! Thank you Jesus for healing my little girl!
Tuesday it started snowing at 8 Am, and didn't let up all day. The kids had lots of fun keeping busy!
Dad popped them popcorn:
Nehemiah played in the snow:
If only I could get him to stop EATING the snow! It's not super bad that he eats it, but it does gross me out that he takes the snow from the bottom of his boots and eats that!
That night he helped with super:
The next day, breakfast was different than other days:
Yeah, I gave them cupcakes! Neither one ate the whole thing. I think it was too much of a sugar rush!
Last night I took the kids to Stephanie's house to let them play with Adaliah. Virginia tried her hand at singing, she kinda liked it ;)
Hope everyone is having a great week!

Who else thought 2010 went too quickly?! Raise your hands! Of course there were some days that drug. There were sad days, happy days, days of joy watching my kids grow, days of sadness knowing what Jason missed.
I watch Virginia walking around and realize, my little girl is no longer a baby, she really is a toddler. She's still unsure of walking, she does that waddling thing that is so cute. But she's so adventurous that I know before long she'll be running along with Nehemiah, Adaliah, and Micah. She loves carrying dolls with her as she follows me, and I catch glimpses of the mother she'll someday be. She does like to steal the toy bottles that the baby dolls have though, need to work on that one. I'm not sure why she does that, she hasn't had a bottle since before she was one!
Nehemiah talks all the time! He loves watching Toy Story 3, which he refers to as "New Toys movie" He loves taking care of his little sister! Every night he prays for her, and gives her a kiss before telling her night-night! His toys are over-taking the house and I can't wait til it's garage sale time so I can get rid of some!! I already have a box and bag ready to get rid of with more to sort through!
Well, that's all for now, Nehemiah is sitting on my lap making it hard to type on here!
