Sometimes life is hard

Sometimes life is hard. Sometimes you feel so overwhelmed with life that your pile of laundry may seem like the end of the world. Then something happens and you realize that maybe that pile of laundry may be nothing at all. My sister Tiff and her two girls have been threw so much these past few months. And things just got a hole lot worse this week for them. I know that they could use a lot of prayers coming there way. If you could please keep them in your prayers, and I pray that they have comfort and peace at this time.

We had a great Christmas and got way spoiled by all our parents. Our kids got spoiled by everyone. We hope everyone had a great Christmas.

Brielle got this cute little kitchen and this table set. She has had so much fun playing with them. The boys have enjoyed them just as much.

Boston Favorite gift was his skateboard.

Bridger favorite gift would have to be his guitar. He was so excited. He gets to start lessons in Jan.

Baxter got his I pod. I don't think he has heard a word I said sense.

I think these three where up a little to much in the night.

Baxter's Letter to Santa

Today I went to parent teacher conference. I'm always worried what the teacher our going to say. I don't know why. Well Baxter teacher said I had the kids right a letter to Santa. I thought you might want to see Baxter. Thinking in my mind oh no.This is letter.

Dear Santa,
I've been patient for Christmas this year. And I hope you come and bring

me what I've wanted. My list has changed a lot during the months but here is two

things I'd like. A I pod nano to listen to on very long trips or at games or even at

home. They thing I want the most this year is for my sister to get better. She has

been sick for 2 weeks and went to the hospital last weekend and it was scary and I

hope you could do that.

This is what I would like this year and I hope you can bring it all. Especially

remembering my sister.

Sincerely, Baxter Baker

What a sweet big brother. I'm so proud of him.

I loved this. I took it from my sister in law Stef

Boston's Christmas Program

Boston was so cute last night when he went to bed he said , yes I get to wear my Christmas sweater tomorrow. He got up put it on and was so excited. Good thing Jason was working today because he hates it. Jason compares it to the little pink bunny costume from the movie the Christmas story. But I love it and so does Boston.

One long week

What a crazy week this has been. It all started last Saturday, We were at Jason parents house. I noticed Brielle was eating some Styrofoam. I pulled it out of her mouth the next thing I no she was throwing up. I thought maybe she had swallowed some of the Styrofoam and it had made her sick. We went home and bam it hit all of us the great full flu. It lasted about 48 hours in all of us. By Thursday I noticed Brielle was still not doing any better she was getting really weak and still throwing up, I couldn't get her to eat anything. She also had not had a wet diaper sense Monday. I took her in to the doctor and they gave her a iv. Hoping that would bring her out of it. I came home and she had one wet diaper form the iv. By Saturday and no more wet diapers and still she wouldn't eat or drink we took her in to the hospital. They quickly admitted her. I felt so bad she was so weak and so sick. They ran a bunch of tests. They were worried that she had some Styrofoam stuck in her lungs that she had aspirated it when she threw up. A chest x ray showed things were OK. Other test showed she had a bad viro infection and it had made her liver not function like it should also her potassium was at a dangerous level. And all her levels in everything where way bad. They kept her for the night, and gave her many IVs and tried to stop her from diarrhea. The next morning she was still not improving much. They notice her potassium had even dropped lower in the night. They tried to shove bananas down her but a one year old has a mind of her own. Finally they filled donuts full of bananas and got her to eat a few to bring it up a little soon she was running around the halls of the hospital making all new friends. Her doctor saw her in the hall way and said I guess its time for her to go home.She is still not out of the woods but is doing much better and getting stronger. What a stressful and emotional week it has been. To see your little baby laying there so sick and nothing you or anyone doing is helping her get better. Hopefully she is on the up stream now. One thing I learned also is you child has a little bracelet around her foot that you can't leave the hospital room with her. I thought i would take her out of her room to see the Christmas trees out in the hall way. I walked out of the room with her and set all the alarms off and set the whole hospital on lock down woops.
