Happy Halloween

This Halloween has been a blast.  Burke being able to walk and understand more what is going on around him makes it so fun.  Silas decided he wanted to be Dracula this year so Brit and I made Abe and Burke their own baby bat costumes :)  I always love doing crafts and making these costumes have been so fun and super easy.  We actually got the idea from Becky our friend who made Ike the wolf last year while her daughter was Little Red Riding Hood.  Anyway, there were some parties on Sunday that we took Burke too.  First we went to his school carnival where they had live animals and trick or treating out of trunks of cars.  It was so cute.  After that we headed over to the Butlers house for a super fun kids party.  They had all kinds of fun stuff, a popcorn machine, hot dogs, face painting, bounce houses and more.  Burke was obsessed with the bounce houses.  I had to crawl in and get him because he wouldn't come out.  You should have seen that :)

Today Britney and I took the boys to the zoo for Boo at the Zoo.  Most of the stuff didn't open till tonight but they still had so much fun.  There was a hay maze that we could not get them out of.  We also took them for a train ride which is always fun!  I really want to go to Boo at the Zoo next year at night so we can see everything.  It looks super cool.

Tonight our neighborhood goes all out with a Halloweenie roast down at the beach then they take the kids on hay rides around to trick or treat.  Next to our house some people on our street made a haunted trail that they have been working on all week.  I can not wait to see it tonight.

I hope you all have a wonderful and safe Halloween.  I will post some pictures later from all our events :)

Choroid Plexus Cyst (CPC) & Hydronephrosis

I have heard from many of your wondering what exactly these markers are and what could they mean. We received an information sheet from our genetics doctor that I can't seem to upload but I found this write up and thought I would share. The Choroid Plexus and Choroid Plexus CystsThe choroid plexus is an area of the brain that makes cerebrospinal fluid. Cerebrospinal fluid is the substance that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. The choroid plexus is not an area of the brain involved in thinking. Choroid plexus cysts are fluid-filled spaces in the choroid plexus kind of like blisters or bubbles. Choroid plexus cysts are not tumors or cancer, and they will disappear on their own usually between 24 to 26 weeks of pregnancy. Choroid plexus cysts, in and of themselves, are NOT a problem and do not interfere with brain function.They are seen in about 1% (1/100) of all second trimester ultrasounds. Choroid plexus cysts may be seen in one or both sides of the brain and the number, size…

Burke is 3!!!!!

Okay I have decided that time is going by way too fast.  Burke just turned 3 the beginning of June!  I can not believe it.  I feel like just yesterday I was in the hospital having the little guy!  We had a fun small family party and he is loving some super hero's right now so that was the theme :)  Silas really wanted to jump out when he walked in and yell surprise so that is what we did :)  Burke is super shy and he really wasn't a fan of it all.  Pibby and Pops got him his first bike and it is SO cute.   I picked up a balloon for all the kids and one special spider man one for Boo.  He has always loved balloons.  He said the sweetest thing....... he wanted to let his balloons go up to Mamie so she would know that it was his birthday.  I couldn't believe he let his special Spider Man one go.  It made me want to cry.  She should be here with us.  ANYWAYS, it was a fun day and I got some pictures of course and a few videos.  Happy 3rd Birthday Burkie BOO!  We love you so so…


Burke and Winnie just finished their first Vacation Bible School and they had a blast.  I did as well :)  I got to help in Burkes class which is always really interesting.  There were about 20 3yr olds in there so it was WILD :)  It was a fun 3 days of learning about how God is our light.  We sang "This little light of mine" everyday and Winnie is trying so hard to sing it.  She walks around the house with her little pointer finger up mumbling.  I love it.
