News and I Didn't Take Pictures?

Girl #3 for Thomas and Natalie
A house full of beautiful girls
Doesn't get much better

Our two four year olds started gymnastics

Our Texas sweeties got a package from Maryland

Charlie had a job interview.
Didn't get that one but he if definitely going places
We took Miss F to Ohio for a long week end
love the stuff we find in Ohio

Streetsboro Steak and Shake
Never miss out when we are there

Nothing like a hotel swimming pool . . .

. . . except maybe a hotel breakfast

I ran into this rainbow of dresses while in Ohio
a plan for pictures in July when the baby arrives
stay tuned

Saw these at a Flea Market in Ohio.
Chairs from one of Thomas and Natalie's favorite college hang outs.
Tom wouldn't let me get them for their dining room.
A GREAT dinner with the Ohio Dennisons

Love this group!
Just don't see them enough


The redheads got a new Angry Birds bathroom from Marc's in Ohio
Another must place to stop $2 shower curtain $1 towels
oh and we picked everyone up some Stadium Mustard

We also visited our niece, Erin's, new house and Miss F loved playing with the kids
 and we also visited our niece , Rachel's, new house and Miss F played with her kids too
Both beautiful houses full of love
Why didn't I take pictures you say.
I don't know
I also had breakfast with both of my sisters.
It was so nice to just go from place to place and see someone else.
We usually try to get everyone together but it's just too many people now.
We ended the weekend with dinner at BDubs-Buffalo Wild Wings
with my brothers and sisters-in-law.
Great week end!!!
and I didn't even need to take pictures
Jack started Kick boxing and hapkedo

Mommy 20 years earlier

Wyatt and Piper spent the night and the news?
I didn't take pictures
I did manage a couple at our weekly BK playground visit

Miss F got a haircut
Maybe Papa needs a haircut and a shave
nope, that's a hat Jen made for him
The appeal to the insurance company to get them to pay for Ella's Mito Cocktail again was denied because the components of the cocktail can be bought over the counter.
The combinations of vitamin and nutritional supplements such as CoEnzyme Q10, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin K1, and L-Carnitine in the cocktail require special ingredients or preparations – some classified as bulk chemicals or medical food, and requiring the services of a compounding pharmacy. A Mito cocktail may contain anywhere from two to 20 ingredients.
We have been blessed to have a great Neurogenetic doctor and a pharmacy that can make the cocktail and up until now an insurance company that would pay for it. Not all Mitochondrial patients are as blessed but now Thomas and Natalie are responsible for the $400 a month cost
This isn't the end
as always stay tuned

Just a Few Boring Days

It looks like I will never get caught up on the blog.
Too busy I guess
Miss F and Tom and I are getting ready to go on a trip back to Ohio
Trying to get away from the snow
but I want to post these pictures before we we leave
Snow Storm #1

Ella has Tom's papa Smurf hat on, more of Jen's handy work

Sami prefers staying inside

We've also seen a couple of movies
Tom LOVES going to the movie
Of course at least one trip to the Burger King playground


Ella got a hug scarf  from Aunt Nenni

Book Club at Ella's school
We do this every week
but Sami only comes along on special occasion

The Nutcracker at Wyatt's school

Proud family!

Found some pictures of Nik
It seems like he's been gone forever but it's only been a little over a week
The stress level has definitely gown down around here

Storm #2
with Aunt Natalie

We do miss him!

After the storm

Working on a dinosaur project for school
We took all but Ella to see Dinosaur Train Live
Water fountains were pretty exciting too

She thinks these are just for Nik
His favorite no carb snack
She doesn't realize she will never see him again
Pictures from Texas where it's 80!


Some retail therapy

Honor Roll Breakfast with Ella

The insurance company refused to pay for Ella's Mito Cocktail this month so while waiting on the appeal the doctor suggested the most important vitamins over the counter so this is what she's taking. The doctor said she would need to take up to 50 to cover what the cocktail does and the liquid absorbs so much better.

She worked so hard for this!

Keeping Miss F entertained without Nik around.

Then since Ella didn't go to Dinosaur Train
 her and i went to dinner (her choice) and a play.

She wanted to do a puzzle after we got back like we used to do

Getting ready for our trip to the hotel
she tried on her new bathing suit and
 wanted to wear it in her bath

I saw Nik for book Club this week too
he was surprised to see me
He said i live at my visit house all the time now
I know baby
then a big smile, hugs and a lot of I love you Grams

Storm # I don't even know any more

We snuck out in between storms
before they even had the back roads cleared
I didn't get a chance to post this before we left
but we had a GREAT time
