Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!!!

Tonight we went down to Atlantic Station to see the huge Christmas tree and all the beautiful lights and all the SNOW!!!!!ok, well it wasn't real snow but it looked like snow---- it was a bubble machine that made really small bubble suds to make it look like snow---. We had a great time and Tegan was sooo excited about the 'snow'. It's such a fun time of year to go do fun things like we got to do tonight. We can't wait for next weekend to see what fun thing we will get to do :):)

Cumming Christmas Parade

We went to the Cumming, GA Christmas Parade today with Mom & Dad. We had a lot of fun and Tegan really had a BLAST!!! This was her first Christmas Parade and she was so excited. It's such a wonderful time of year. There is so much joy and happiness all around. I love this time of year because we get to spend so much time with our family and friends that we don't normally spend time with and most important we get to celebrate the birth of our savior, Jesus Christ. This Christmas season has so far been wonderful and we look forward to the rest of it and what it may bring.

Carley's checkup

carley's breathing is better.....but she now has an ear infection, poor thing. It's one thing after another. She is still going to take the albuterol for her breathing, but she also has to take amoxicillin too for her ear. All the fluid from her lungs is breaking up and some of it is going into her ears which is causing the ear infection---the doctor said this is very common--. So, we are so grateful that she is getting better and we don't have to take her to the ER for her breathing. We have a strong belief in the power of prayer and how fast it can work sometimes...yesterday's experience was testimony to that.



Christmas time is HERE!!!! We got our TREE!!! YAY!!!! Tegan had a great time going to pick it out. She wasn't too sure of them at first with the prickly branches, but it doesn't bother her now. We wanted to go to a Christmas Tree farm up here in Atlanta somewhere, but with the girls getting sick, we decided to just go to Lowe's and get one---which is where we've gotten ours for the past 5 years since we got married. We loved our tree at the store, but we didn't like our tree when we got it home, we were both disappointed with is, but Terrel trimmed the bottom a little more than the store did and it looks great now. We love this time of year as we have to celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. We also love the time we have to spend with our family and friends.

Carley turned 2 months on November 25. Her two month checkup was on december 2. She now weighs 13 lbs 8.5 oz(97%) 23.5 inches(95%). She gaines 2 pounds 3.5 ounces in 1 month. She's growing like a weed. It's gone by so fast. At her two month checkup I also took Tegan in because she has been coughing really bad. They put her on Albuterol which is medicine that people with asthma may take. The doctor also found a murmur in her heart, but he said no big deal right now, and they'll keep checking it. Carley was a little congested at her appt. but the doc said she sounds ok but just to keep watching her and listening, well we did, and we took her back today 12/3/08 and she is now having to take the Albuterol also. They gave her a breathing treatment at the doctor's office then checked her oxygen level and it was low, so they waited about 10-15 mins and came back. In that 10-15 mins. we were praying so hard that her little body and little lungs would strengthen to get a higher oxygen level, and our Heavenly Father answered our prayers immediately because as soon as they tested her level went from 88 to 93. It needs to be as close to 100 as possible and they take anything over 92, so we are so grateful that it got higher because if it had stayed below 92 she would have been taken to the ER for tests to make sure she doesn't have RSV. So for now she is just on Albuterol every 4 hours for 3 days, and Tegan is on albuterol she takes 2 puffs 3 times a day for a week. This is a very scary time for our family, but we know that our Heavenly Father will watch over us and help us have strength to get through this and we know our girls are so strong that they can overcome their little illnesses.
