The videos

Hope was a monkey in her former life

Hope's birthday was very fun. She went to boondocks with a few friends and family. She got lots of fun presents from our thoughtful friends and family. So, I decided to post this video of Luke playing with some of Hope's make up. I kept telling him, "Boys, don't wear lipstick, Luke" and he would say, "Boys do." It was hilarious. Hope and I were cracking up. Hope then proceeded to hang upside down on the counter ledge. It was an entertaining night to say the least.

Halloween Continued

Our poor little Luke had stomach flu Halloween morning. Poor little guy. We did get a few pictures. By the afternoon he wasn't throwing up and he was eating so he did get to go to grandmas and grandpas. I stayed home most of the night as I was still recovering from pneumonia while Berny took the kids up our street and then we just chilled. Hope of course, loved every minute of it.

Grandpa Coy's halloween party and Witch hayride at Gardner Village

Hope's Halloween Parade

Luckily, Bern recorded Hope's halloween parade because I have walking pneumonia and opted not to go. She is such a cutie. She chose her own costume this year.Of course, I wasn't there to fix her hat before sooo..ya. Dad's don't notice these things. You can't see but I braided Hope's hair in these cute braids with super cute hallooween bows. I love our little not so shy Candy Corn Witch. More halloween pictures to come.

Kids pictures!

So, we finally took a family picture. We haven't since Luke was born (other than ones we took ourselves). Amy Riley did them and she did an awesome job as usual. You can check them out on her photography blog posted in my links. If you go to her gallery button, you can see all of the pics by clicking under Berny and Nikki. Also, on a good note, I am trying some Migraine medicine that is giving me tons of energy and might be helping with my dizziness. I feel better but I was starting to feel better before I started taking the medicine so I am not sure..we will see. Here's to feeling good though!

So, I have been feeling discouraged and frustrated lately about my "problem", my symptoms have been not great lately. Yesterday, I went to work and found out that my friend's husband Paul got his new heart. It was the best news in the world! He is such an inspiring person and the news truly lifted my spirits and gave me hope. I am so happy for their family and can't imagine the suffering they have gone through while they waited for this heart. I just wanted to post this in case some of you know this family and had not heard the good news yet. I was a little late finding out myself. What an amazing journey!
