Cast Free!!!

 Thank you for all the prayers and support! Our little guy has no more cast!!! First thing he insisted on doing upon arriving home was pee in the potty. He's excited to get his life back. Jimmy was just as excited as Colton when he saw his baby brother without a cast. "Now he can play with me, and we can run around!" Winston, the dog, even seemed pleased, and followed Colton all over the house until bedtime, and then crawled in bed with him. Now begins the journey of gaining his muscle back and learning to walk. Knowing him, it shouldn't take him long. We're so very, very happy to have this thing pretty much behind us.

Spica Cast Removal Day!

 We are so excited because the day has finally come where we make the trek to Rochester and hopefully get this cumbersome green thing removed and likely replaced with something a little less restrictive.

We Do Loud Really Well

A few weeks ago (already!) my sister from Nebraska and her family made the trek to the Wisconsin neck of the woods where the rest of our family resides. Between my parents, the siblings, the spouses and significant others, the kids there's 21 of us. And that doesn't include the gazillion pets between all of us. In my family, this spells out a recipe for a lot of laughter, a lot of loud, and total randomosity on tap.

Of course the 4 year-old girl cousins would be capable of convincing the 2 year-old to pull them around in the wagon. 

 I don't have daughters, but I do have nieces. It's so fun when they let me do their hair.

 The 4 year-olds.
"Baby Toads" are a favorite.

 And so was horseback riding.

 Quesadilla burgers on the grill.

Sisters! We tried to take a normal picture. There are probably hundreds. This is the only one that turned out relatively normal.

How to Make a "Peanut Butter and Honey Sanzy"

...with extra peanuts. 
First, you take 2 slices of bread and smear peanut butter on one. Tasting the peanut butter ensures that it is indeed delicious. 
Spread thoroughly, and then sprinkle with peanuts. 
Drown it in honey. 
Place second slice of bread on top. 
Be sure it is properly aligned, and then you may consume to your heart's content. 

When finished, repeat the above steps.
