Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Well I hope everyone had a great Christmas. We sure did. We all got really spoiled. Makenna was really spoiled and got the cutest little doll and stroller set. It came with a doll, stroller, bassinet, car carrier and a diaper bag filled with accessories. She was so excited she couldn't contain herself. And all I can say is that the baby and stroller has been everywhere with us ever since. She is all girl and just way to cute. Well we hope everyone had a great Christmas and has a happy and safe New Year!

Tis the Season...

for colds, flu's and everything else. So in the last month Makenna has come down with two colds and the stomach flu that lasted a week. Then last week we took Makenna in for her flu shot and she broke out in hives. Did anyone know that the flu shot was made from eggs? I sure didn't and no one told me it was when she received it. And guess what? Makenna has an egg allergy. Now I had suspected that she did because she would throw up or break out around the mouth when I would feed her eggs so I just simply didn't feed them to her. Well now because she had that flu shot her allergy is a lot worse. We ended up taking her to see a food allergist on Friday. They did a skin prick test with egg whites and egg yolks. She reacted to both but was worse with the yolk. But either way an egg is an egg so now we have to stay away from them. But they told us to just stay away from eggs all together and flu shots. We can give her benedryl if she gets the hives again and they gave us a prescription for an epipen if she has a serious reaction. Just another thing that we have to carry around in the diaper bag. But we just hope that we wont ever have to use it. And hopefully she gets feeling better from everything that she has come down with. She has not been a very happy girl lately. Lets just hope she's feeling better for Christmas!

Thanksgiving, birthdays and lots of fun

Going down the big slide with dad

Playing on one of the toys with mom. She's still a little nervous

This ended up being one of her favorite things to play on

Wow was this weekend crazy! So much going on and so much to be thankful for. The number one thing I'm thankful for is Weston and Makenna. I can't even remember the last time that we spent so much time together. Weston is so busy with work and school and when I work nights I don't think we ever see each other. But it was so much fun putting up Christmas lights and spending Thanksgiving dinner together. We also took Makenna to Kangaroo Zoo to play one day. It took her awhile to warm up to it but once she did she didn't want to leave. We also celebrated Weston's birthday with a nice quite dinner at Tucano's. Well it was quite in the sense that we didn't have Makenna with us but the restaurant was busy and then they came out and sang to Weston. The told him to get up and dance. It was pretty hilarious. So Happy Birthday to the best husband in the world and I can't wait to spend some more time together during Christmas break.
