Kaveri's 6th Birthday- Sorta

In the early morning of the day
Kaveri's bday party was planned,
she woke up with extremely high fever and
flu like symptoms.
But she had previously picked out
a cake and daddy had picked it up.
We tried to make the best of it.
She had spent the entire day in a momma-made pallet
on the living room floor.
She wanted to blow out her candles and eat some cake.....
she thought.
But alas the cake "taste weird" and back to bed she went.
Her condition worsened over the next flu few days
and slowly infected the rest of the house.
But when she was feeling better on tylenol and motrin, she opened 
her presents.
I really wanted to re-do her bday party the next weekend,
but by then we were all infected except for Derek.
It lasted 7-10 days for each of us.
We were feeling better and finally fever free
just in time for Christmas.

Hopefully I can figure out something special for her.

Hanukkah 2012

* This post will start my December blogs in order *

The week of Hanukkah went by extremely fast.
Derek made the BEST homemade latkes= potato pancakes.
Served with sour cream and apple sauce.
And of course we played lots of dreidel. 

The winners for the week: Me,Derek, and MiKayla :)

We also had a huge celebration at church and everyone 
forgot their cameras :(
Kirstin performed a dance during worship
and they all won prizes for answering
Hanukkah questions:)

Gramma Came to Visit

Gramma Donna came to visit for 
about 5 nights.
The girls were so excited it felt
like she packed gramma crack
in her suitcase. 
They were a little crazy!

We mostly hung out at the house.
She and the girls spent a couple of days makin'
all my favorite Christmas cookies.

Every year she visits in December and brings all the 
girls jammies.

One special memory about gramma is
her daily walks she takes the girls on :)
They always have little adventures.

Love her!

On a side note: 
Hanukkah is in full swing and we are getting ready 
to celebrate Kaveri's 6TH birthday!!!!
