This picture almost speaks for itself. This girl NEVER sleeps. She is the energizer bunny! So, for the past few months I feel like I have been living in a haze of germs and sickness. I will just give a list of medical stuff in our house since the end of October. Boston surgery, Krista Surgery, Alexa Strep throat, Boston Strep throat, Boston croup, Alexa bladder infection, Alexa positive for Mono, Boston Strep Butt( yes, strep virus in your BUTT and that IS what they call it!!)Krista Strep throat, Alexa double ear infection, Boston croup, Alexa ear infection and Strep throat, Sera cold, Boston croup.(i think i even missed a few in there somewhere) And now the latest... Last week Alexa got a fever of 104 and the doctor sent her to the ER thinking it was meningitis. The Er treated us like we were there for the flu. So, 41/2 hours AND 1 IV later we came home. Only to have her continue with a fever of 103 or higher every day!! She is still sick as you can see from the picture. I am SO ready for spring I can't even begin to explain it!! Also, If anybody has a good recommendation for a pediatrician I obviously need one. We haven't had the best luck finding one. I would like someone that will help Alexa get better, not just give me another antibiotic every 15 days and not work on a solution!! I am kind of embarrassed to write this blog. I feel like the freak family that gets everything, even stuff nobody has heard of. I need SPRING!!!

Fun at the Cabin!

Last weekend we went to the cabin with our cousins to play in the snow! The kids had the best weekend. They played and laughed all day and sometimes night! The snow was great. I didn't know I had such fearless kids. They were sledding non stop and up for any ride! Alexa would fly down the hill, hit a jump, and crash. Then she would get up laughing and ask for more. For Boston it was never fast enough and Sera could not get enough or "catch enough air"! It was a great weekend! Here are a few pictures of us having fun...

Hannah Montana!!

After trying unsuccessfully to get concert tickets both times we went to the Hannah Montana movie in 3D! I didn't know it would be such a big deal. The movie was sold out both days we tried to go. So, I went at 9:00 am and bought tickets. Then I went back 2 hours before the movie started to wait in the line so we could sit together! In the end it was worth it! The girls were so excited they were jumping up and down. We were the first in line (Sera thinks that it is the coolest part), and my girls sang along, danced along
and smiled the entire time! It was a fun night!

Typical Day in the Life of Frankie!!

If you can't tell he has 1 computer at his feet, one on his lap AND he is emailing someone on his phone, all at the same time. If he would have had 1 more phone I am sure it would have been up to his ear!
