a not so great Saturday...

Rylee has been dealing with nosebleeds off and on since the beginning of this year. Usually they have started like most little kid nosebleeds start...she tends to be a nose picker...eww!
One Saturday morning a couple of weeks ago she woke up with a bloody nose. The only difference this time was that this one wouldn't stop and in fact started up four more times after the first one.
After the fifth time (while we were at Target with Grammy), I called Johnny to meet me at the doctor's office. They ended up having to cauterize her nose to get it to stop bleeding. It definitely hurt a lot, and she couldnt stop sneezing for a while.
The worst part was that the chemical used caused a burn on her hand (where she tried to wipe her nose) and under her nostril. She ended up calling that side of her nose the "bad side" for a while because it stayed very tender for a few days :(
I was just glad that Johnny could come and meet us at the doctor's office that day. He's such a good daddy!

so proud...

I dont post about it much, but about 3 years ago Johnny started his own company and while scary and full of ups and downs, he has made it in to something really amazing. I am so proud of him for all that he does and for all that he does to provide for our family. I know he gives up a lot to make sure that his business is the best it can be, but Ive honestly never seen him happier and more settled with life!

This picture was taken a week or so ago when we were able to go out for coffee together one morning. This sign was posted on the window of the restaurant next door to the Starbucks we were at. It's a sign for a charity motorcycle ride benefitting a police officer and his family in our was just so cool to see his company logo on the sign...

she makes us laugh...

She doesnt like to be called silly or funny, but she sure makes us laugh often!
in the costume she "just had to have". nope, it's not her Halloween costume, but she sure looks cute in it

I think this one is a cross between Merida and Sleeping Beauty...
