Channel 13s RVTV made a stop in Iowa Falls last night, so I HAD to take the boys to the fun!  Most of us cheering for Iowa State and 1 lonely one for Iowa!  The kids had fun and we can even be seen in the background of the news at 5!

2 months?!

Hard to believe it has been 2 months since our sweet baby girl left this world.  Not a day goes by that we don't think about or talk to her.  We love you Caris Jenika!

What's sleep?

                       Well, Caris came home on Sunday (17th).  We decided not to tell the boys incase something happened, when they got home they were all VERY excited to see her!  The first night however was very difficult for Joshua and me, her alarms kept going off, so we got about 3 hours of broken sleep each.  Joshua took Monday off so we could get used to having Caris home.  Monday and Tuesday night I slept in the livingroom so Joshua could get some sleep because he has to work in the morning.  We had a fairly good day yesterday and thanks to Joshua I got to take several naps so I can stay awake to take care of our Carebear!

                                                                 Headed home!

Big brothers enjoying her
