She came home with her own "Cat In The Hat" type quick story:
If my brother and I were alone in the house we would play barbies. My brother would play with his action figures now. I would play webkinz today. My brother would say, NO! You can not play webkinz now.

Jadyn came in 18th place in her last tourny. I'm hoping this time around she can do a little better. I took her out to practice last night and she'll go back to do some more tomorrow night. She has her league on Saturday and then the tourny on Sunday.
Keep her in your thoughts and wish her luck!

The dr. wasn't sure we were going to be able to hear the heartbeat since we were right on the 12 week borderline. Baby proved him wrong though!
I'm feeling really good and have been for the most part to this point. Just a little queasy in the morning because I have to take my thyroid meds before I can eat breakfast and right before bed. Sour preggo pop drops are the best thing invented. They are fantastic for queasy tummies, motion sickness and just upset stomachs in general.

She'll then say: "Other one?"
Then you have to turn your face so she can kiss the other cheek.
Should you refuse (jokingly) she'll move your head so that she can get to the other side.
It's cute to watch and she happens to give the best 2 year old kisses ever.
When asked why I couldn't have the baby boy and he couldn't have the baby girl, he told me I was a girl and had to have a baby girl and he was BOY so he had to have a baby boy.
Every few days I'll ask him the same question and we have almost the same exact coversation. Though sometimes he decides to have a girl and let's me have the boy.
On a better note: Jadyn, Taryn and Brennnan had their Valentine's Day parties yesterday morning and had lots of fun. =)

I think Karis is finally better. She slept most of the day away yesterday. She pretty much was only awake for maybe 4-4 1/2 hours. This morning though she's back to her chipper, fun cuddling self.
Not sure what today will bring. I've got 3 of them home today. Hopefully Brennan and Taryn don't catch the nasty bug. For that matter Kolin and I would like it to pass by us as well.

After puking all over the bed, Kolin threw her into the tub and I ran downstairs for new bedding and a bag to throw the icky bedding in. Realized when I got back up to the room that they gave me the wrong size bedding and made by way back downstairs while listening to my little girl scream at her daddy: I DONE! I DONE!
Got the bed made back up and Karis in clean jammies. Ever 45-90 minutes for the rest of the night we was up puking again. I hope to the high Heavens that no one else catches this. She ended up sleeping in a bit, woke up and puked again. Now 2 hours later she's not hungry, but thirsty and NOT puking.
Wish us luck that were back home today with a warm house and no more sick little ones.
It was a day of unfortunate events. I couldn't get ahold of our landlord (she got back to us this morning and the repair guy is on his way to the house) and of course the house is getting colder and colder. Kolin took the older 3 to church and I stayed home with Karis hoping for a return call that didn't happen. We were invited over for lunch at a friend's parents house and really enjoyed ourselves. Came home for a little while, the little ones were able to take a nap since they each have small space heaters in their rooms and then took them bowling with us.
We ended up at a hotel for the night. The kids love going to any and all hotels so they thought it was a huge treat, especially on a school night. Kolin left one more message for our landlord, tried calling a couple of repairs shops with no answer and we were off to bed.

Once upon a time there was a princess and queen. They shared a bedroom and toys. But one day when they were asleep a couple of bad guys came and kidnapped them. They were scared and yelled for help. Then teh bad guys said the magiv word to open the castle door. The bad guys tied them to the chairs in the dunegon. The princess and queen were scared becasue they thought the bad guys would boil them in hot lava or put magic spells on them that would last forever.
Back at the castile the king noticed that the queen and princess were gone. He and the knights went to find them. They were finally found by the lava rock. The king and knights battled the bad guys. They battled all afternoon. The bad guys are dead.
The king and knights untied the princess and queen. The princess fell in love with one of the knights bcause he was strong and saved her from the bad guys. The princess and knight got married and lived happily ever after.
