Feeling Better

OK, I sat down to write a happy post, but every time I try to post something, I either hit return one too many times or backspace one too many times and everything gets deleted. I can never get the pictures to line up with the text and I end up so frustrated that I leave it and don't come back to it for a few weeks.... it really is much more fun to read other people's blogs. But I am going to try one last time, if this doesn't work. I am just going to leave the feeling better blog title up for the next year and then delete this stinkin' blog!
Here are a few pictures taken the last little while. I have been feeling much better after the last six/eight weeks of Mono (who knew - but apparently that's what it was.) My GI doc called today with the latest results of my liver function blood work and all my levels are either normal or almost normal (the only one I understand is the bilirubin level which is about 1 point above normal). Thank-you to my mom who came and took care of us for 2 weeks - everyone misses you!
About the pictures: The first two are of the only significant snowfall we had all winter. It came at the end of February and the girls made the most of it. Ashlee is standing in front of their snowman on day one and Maggie is with him (after she reconstructed him a little) on day two. By the second day, the snow was SO WET - the girls went sledding and had mud all over them when we got home. The hair picture was for crazy hair day as part of the Dr. Suess birthday celebration at their school. Ashlee was Daisy head Maize and Maggie just had crazy hair. Paige at the dishwasher needs no explanation she empties every single drawer she can get her hands on! Chris has started upgrade so he will be home for the next 2 months or so - happy us! The girls started spring break today and they are happy to be free for the next week, but we are all wishing the weather was warmer - it's way too windy to go outside today and not supposed to be out of the 40's until next week.

Allison, I am sooo glad you are feeling better! Those are way cute pictures of the girls!!! Too bad we couldn't share some of our snow with you guys -- we got so much this year and I'm sure the girls would have enjoyed it much more than me! :)
