A Valentine Tradition

The kids love our family Valentine's dinner, but they love the dessert even more! Our traditional chocolate fondue with lots of yummy things to dip. A messy face, must mean a happy customer!

Chewing on washcloths

A favorite past time...

Our Brave Little Boy

On Tuesday Noah had a makeover!

It still breaks my heart because at this point he had no idea what was going to happen. We explained (on a 4 year old level) what was going to happen. When we were at the hospital we even tried to make a big deal about the red socks - his favorite color and the bed with wheels!

Now he's getting a little nervous.
I didn't even cry until he went around the corner.

Bryan and I started wondering if he was hearing us completely. We dismissed it for a while just thinking "he's a 4 year old boy, of course he's not going to listen to us." But you know that feeling you get when you know something's not right with your child? I think we both had it, so we made an appointment with the Doc. Sure enough, lots of fluid in his ears (he's never had an ear infection) and large tonsils and adenoids. WOW!!!! We have also had sleeping issues with him too....could those large tonsils and adenoids be waking him up at night??? It wasn't an easy decision to send our little boy to the operating room, but in the long run we are hoping this will help him in many different aspects.
