Easter Eggs

My friend Jana made these super cute eggs for her table to get her house ready for Easter. They look easy and totally kid friendly.

The girls and I are going to make a trip to the thrift store and pick up a couple of silk ties this weekend and surprise dad with a cute display. :)

Happy Easter!

Update from Surgery

Big K did great today!

We arrived at the hospital this morning about 7:15am. (Ashley took little K to school for us. Thanks A!) J went to get breakfast for us while K and I settled in. We did our paperwork, convinced the lady not to make us pay today but instead wait to be billed :), have a physical and change into some really fancy pj's. K informed the nurse that she and little K already had some of those at home. J came back just in time to keep big K distracted for the "silly juice". She downed it like a champ and made a few phone calls while waiting for it to kick in. We got to talk to Aunt Brigette and Uncle Brandon (and Champ! K loves them!

The meds never really kicked in so the nurse had to take her away from us still crying. Never a good moment :( Her surgery was maybe 15 mins at most. When they came to get us, we thought something was wrong and both of our hearts just dropped. All was well though. They brought her to us, she was awake and eating a Popsicle. She was having pain in her right ear with a headache until about 2:45pm. After we got home, I tried from 9:45-12:45 to get her to sleep. No luck...those meds had her WIRED!! But she was still loopy and off balance so we had to stay in the bed and watch Sleeping Beauty a few times! She calls it Sleepin her!

I can't tell a difference yet. Hoping to see full restoration of hearing, balance, speech and sleep.

The best part of the day...J ate the Popsicle off the floor in the recovery room when K dropped it IN FRONT OF THE NURSE after TRYING TO FEED IT TO KAROLINE! I almost passed out from embarrassment. Oh my! He kept saying, "What?, I blew it off!"
