the Big Surgery

Cranial Vault surgery pics finally! Brea in her cute hospital gown at Primary Children's waiting to go back for surgery...

If she only knew what was coming?? So So sad to see her so happy and not realize what she was going to have to go through. Maybe it's better that way!

In ICU right after surgery...Looking pretty good.

Day of Surgery!! What a long day!! That's way to long for a 2 year old to be in surgery!! But we're so thankful that it can be done...

Day after Surgery!! Starting to Swell and Black eyes...

Brea with the #1 Dad who spent every sleepless night by Brea's side since Mom had just weened a nursing baby!! Thanks so much!!!

Andee lining up with her friend for the bike parade!!
It was a HUGE Bike parade!! I've never seen so many kids in one spot riding bikes. They all had them decorated so cute!! Andee was proud of her decorations. In fact we can't get her to take them off!!

Cherry Dresses

Andee and Brea's cousins from Colorado sent them the material for these cute Cherry dresses. They'll love it at the upcoming reunion that they'll all match!!
The cousins chillin' with Einstein!!
Andee, Brea and Gage were so excited for there cousins coming in town to play!! Brea was freaked out by Einstein. We couldn't convince her that he wasn't real. She kept looking at him and freaking out and then she would look at his arm behind her and freak out again!! She was so terrified, it was sad, but funny!!

Andee on the other had fell in love with the statue!!

Courage Reins!!

Brea got to start riding horses a couple of weeks ago. It's an awesome program called Courage Reins. The first couple of laps, she gave us the pouty lip I'm sure you've all seen, but then she got so comfortable and loves it. We're so excited for her progress and jealous of all she gets to do.
Andee coming to support her. Andee was a little upset that we were just going to watch Brea ride. She wanted to ride so bad. But when we got there she was just cute and excited for Brea. What a great older sister.

Cute little wrangler bum!!

OUr Cute girls!! Ooops forgot to comb Andee's hair!! Bad Mom!!
