March 26th 366 challenge


Happy 9th Birthday to Nathanael!  A CAT scan and a concussion for you.

All is well, but we had to take him to the ER after he couldn't remember what happened and was throwing up.  He slipped in some water on the floor, smacked his head really well, and then had no idea why I had him lay down for a while.  There were no obvious signs of injury so I wasn't worried until he was confused... I tried calling our doctor's office, who sent me on to call urgent care, who sent me on to a Nurse line, who told me to get him to the ER.  So this 9 month pregnant woman spent 4 hours in an ER and they all kept looking at me for some reason...  Nathanael took it all in stride and wanted to make sure they saved some of his birthday dinner for him.  We'll celebrate more today... which happens to be Christopher's birthday.

What do you on a rainy day?  Make smiley faces out of cars, of course.  (with Michael's help.)

Liberty has 2 Blues... plus she's wearing her favorite thing, butterflies!  No wonder she's so happy.

Rainy day!

Another ugly baby testing out baby stuff.  Benjamin and I put this together Friday.  I LOVE this swing, it plugs into the wall... no winding, no batteries (well, it CAN take batteries...)  Bought it with my Sears discount before Christopher was born (when I worked there.)  And yes, I do love using a swing.  Sometimes baby doesn't want to be held and my other kids need me... it's ok to have somewhere safe from brothers and sisters, soft, rocking, musical, and just for you.  Now to find my Boppy and my Baby Bjorn.  Two more essentials!  There are only a few baby things I absolutely have to have, and those are the top two... I know they are here SOMEWHERE.

Another St. Patrick's Day, another day of green food... veggies, green dip, green Jello, pistachio pudding, coleslaw... and some green drink stuff.  Kind of a snack type dinner but it tasted great.  Oh, and green grapes.  Happy St. Patrick's Day from the non-Irish, non-Catholic Valencics with our own funny traditions.  :)

We have daffodils!  Spring is here.  Not that winter was that much of a winter... but spring is still something to celebrate!

Liberty with a particularly cheesy grin during the BYU game last night.  Too bad she had to go to bed before the best part, but at least she provided comical relief during the painful part.

Yep.  That about sums up Daylight Savings Time.

One of my (soon to be) 3 adorable daughters. Still have no clue what to do with girls :)  Isn't she cute though?  All ready for church.

Liberty came up to me, said, Me, Hat, and pointed to the camera.  I showed her the picture and she was thrilled.  She is starting to really try and communicate with words.  She still calls animals by their sounds, but her vocabulary is really exploding!

The temple after church... sun came through the clouds for a little bit and the temple was briefly lit up :)
