Joscelyn's 2nd Birthday!

Today we celebrated Joscelyn's 2nd Birthday! We are so fortunate to have both sets of Grandparents in town to spend time with our children. The bonds our children make with their grandparents will last forever.

Joscelyn has been practicing with Daddy on blowing out candles. It took a few big breaths, but she got it!

Grandpa thought she needed to take a bite out of the cake before we got it cut.

I think she likes it!

Dress up clothes in a Mickey Mouse Hat Box!

Princess Joscelyn! I made this dress out of a t-shirt I found in the big girl section of the store. I added the ruffle to the bottom, cut the sleeves off, and added the ties to the shoulders.

She likes the dress up clothes so much, she had to put them all on at once!

Sew Fun!!

My principal has gotten me hooked on these really cute twirl skirts. The first one was a little tricky to make, but the second one was super easy. The first picture is actually the second skirt. It has lemons and limes on the top skirt. The bottom skirt is pink with tiny white polka-dots on it. I think she really likes this brown and blue one. The elastic in the waist is a little big. When we tried to pin it up, she kept running away from us. I really think she thought we were going to make her take it off.
The best part is when she gets the skirt on, the first thing she has to do is a little twirl!

If you're interested in making a skirt like this you can get it here.

6 week Checkup

I took Kenten for his 6 week check up today. We were able to see the pediatric cardiologist here in Wichita. They did an EKG. Dr. Allen said it "looked boring." Other than that, he said everything looked and sounded good. We'll go back in one year for a final check!

Everything is GREAT!

We are still amazed at how well everything went. The doctor told us that it would be this simple. It's just hard to believe that after having heart surgery, Kenten was up and going the very next day! We did keep him home from school so we could all rest. But we all returned to work and school on Thursday. To look at Kenten you would never know there had been anything wrong with him or that he had heart surgery only four days ago. He's completely back to his normal self!

Thank you so much for the prayers and good wishes. It really means a lot to all of us to know we have so many friends and family near us when it's truly needed.

In Recovery

Pre-op exam room.Recovery Kenten is out of surgery and in the recovery room. He seems to be doing really well. He's already on his second cherry slushy and finished a bag of gold fish. The doctor said everything went really well. Placing the sensors in his heart triggered his tachycardia. That was a perk! It allowed the doctor to be able to see exactly where the extra impulse site was and ablate it quickly and easily. He's been cleared to leave the hospital at 4:30. We'll be heading to Wichita from the hospital. The weathermen are reporting more bad weather for the Kansas City area tonight. The plan is to stay home and rest tomorrow. We should be back to normal routines (school) on Thursday.
Kenten has been taken back to surgery. He should be out around noon. He'll recover for about 5 hours. Then be released. The doctor said it would be great for us to go home tonight. The car ride home would give him more immobile healing time. The roads in KC are getting slick. Several local school districts have canceled school and some highways are closing. We would like to get home before anymore hits if we can.
