A Really Bad Wake Up Call!!!!!!

So, we made it home yesterday from the hospital, the princess slept good with her oxygen, I on the other hand kept taking a pen light and a watch and checking her respiration but every thing seem to be in order. Thanks for all your prayers. I thought I would tell you something that happened while in the hospital (well it wasn't funny at the time) but it was only something that would happen to me. Ok, about the third day into our stay the respiratory therapist came in to give her a breathing treatment at around 7AM. Kyler was sleeping and so I asked her could I please take a quick shower, in a very guff voice she said "I will only be here 10 min". I said ok I will hurry I won't even wash my hair just wanted so badly to take a shower. So I quickly and quietly grabbed my things and quickly showered well in my hurriedness I went to grab my towel with one hand and turn the lever off for the water with the other forgetting that there was a cord hanging in front of the lever for emergencies! Needless, to say the next thing I know the whole world came crashes in I had nurses flying in Kyler woke with such a start screaming and they were about to bust down the door to make sure I was ok!!!! OH MY!! I felt like such a idiot!! SO, just to let everyone if you ever wondered if those cords are really hooked up to anything and if anyone ever really pays attention to them THEY DO!!!

The Milkman and the Princess

Even though Daddy has to milk twice every day he came and visited us between, once for lunch and then after evening chores were all done. We love that hard working milkman! Kyler was so excited to see her Daddy!!!

Not what I expected!!!

This week was not what I had expected. I had made plans with my good friend to go to the spa on Monday (something I have never done) but Kyler wasn't feeling or looking right so we took her to the Dr. and sure enough she had RSV and Pneumonia that is really not what I expected. But, we are so grateful for our healing caring Heavenly Father who takes care of even the smallest of our needs. And after a few days in the hospital we were able to take you home Yea! Praise God! I know your brother and sisters are so excited. It is nice to have us all back together again. We are also so grateful to all of our family and friends for the help, support, prayers, gifts and love you have given to us on a very unexpected week.

In the country you don't get a chance to go to Starbucks every morning so you have to bring Starbucks to the country especially since the milkman loves and NEEDS his coffee at 4AM. Its not quite the same but if you close your eyes and dream about being at a Starbucks well your half way there!! Hope you have a great get up and go morning!!


I opened my mailbox and I found a package all the way from Germany!! It was FULL of the best

chocolate you could ever imagine. Back in 2004 we had a wonderful German young lady came and lived with us for 6 months she was so wonderful!! I miss her so much. She always is so good to send the kiddos Birthday gifts, Christmas gifts and this year for my Birthday she sent me lots of yummy chocolate. Thanks Jenny K, you are the best! Love and miss you so much!!

My Valentine

We were able to leave the cows and chores in the capable hands of the kids and our hired help for a rare evening out with some of our friends. Aunt Karen came over and  along with the kiddos made a yummy Valentine supper for their Grandparents complete with china and candles. We had a great time and I know the kids made some great memories.

This pic I took at my sister's house. I think it looks like a mattress on top of the picnic table. I didn't know we moved to Colorado. It is beautiful to look out the window at it by a warm fire and a good cup of coffee in hand. I'm so glad my  milkman has a nice warm barn to milk in

I'm glad I'm not a cow!

Again this week we are blasted with another snow storm. I'm so thankful that my milkman built us a warm house with a hot fire place. But, this is what it looks like off my back deck Burr!!!
