Some Random Moments of Happiness...

Sorry for the depressing updates lately, but honestly there hasn't been much to cheer up about around here. Luckily there have been a few moments in the last few weeks that we've been able to forget about sickness and put a smile back on our faces.

Ally came home from the hospital late last night without any more answers then we had when she went in. They ran some more tests, and still have some more to be run as an outpatient. The doctors helped Ally out with ways to manage her pain, and we are trying to get life back to normal as much as we can for everyone. Luckily Gram is in town (my grandma that is)! We are sooo thankful she is here because it gives us another set of hands (and patience) to take care of everything.

Yesterday in an attempt to drive Ryder up to the doctors for his cold I slid around a turn in the snow and hit a concrete barrier. Everyone is okay, but the car needs some work. Keep your fingers crossed for us we can get the appraisal from the insurance company and it fixed quick enough for Derrik to be able to head to Florida in a week and a half.

I did finally get Ryder to the doctors today because he has a nasty cough with this cold, and the doctor said to just give it a few more days and it should start to go away. In the mean time he weighed in at 17lb 7oz... the nurse asked me a few times if he was really five months. He is such a big boy!

Hopefully we can get out of this black cloud we're under sometime soon! In the mean time.... enjoy the pictures :)

Oh My Goodness! I am glad that you are all okay....that must have been terrifying. Ryder is so cute, and big...he is going to dwarf my little guy when they get together. I hope the worst has past for you guys.XOXO
