After much stress and research for Jaxon's peanut allergy, I found these medical ID tags that you can custom order. The best part is that you get 3 in a pack for $12.95. They are waterproof, sweatproof, don't fade, or rub onto skin. They start in infant sizes and go up from there. Check them out, and other allergy alert items, at

Sunday drive to Pine Valley

It was so pretty outside, and so we decided to get out of the house and take the kids for a relaxing drive up to Pine Valley. We had alot of fun!! We can't wait for there to be more snow. Josh has been telling me about this little cafe up in Veyo that has the best pie on the planet, so I was really excited to get chilly, and gobble up some of that...but the cafe was closed. I guess we will have to go up again real soon :-)

*peanut allery*

Poor Jaxon!! He came in contact with a little bit of peanut butter oil from making a sandwich earlier on in the day for Makenzie, and just from the residue he blew up. His face turned purple, his eyelids sagging and white like a ghost. I rushed him to the ER, where his breathing was slowing down, but they fixed him right up!! PHEW!! We have known about this allergy since he was about 8 months old, but this time it was BAD!! The doctor says I just need to throw out the peanut butter completely!! I have to now carry a junior eppy pen with me everywhere we go.

This picture of Jaxon was AFTER he got shot up with tons of medication, and leaving the hospital...he looked really bad previous to this...poor guy!

Halloween 2008

There is this street in the neighborhood I grew up in that just goes ALL OUT for every holiday! The kids sure had fun trick or treating there, and we got to see alot of old friends.

Makenzie aka "Dottie" and Jaxon as "Dipstick" were good little puppies while out and about! Everyone got a kick out of Saylor's and the twins costumes. Erik got a little upset that everyone was complimenting their costumes and not his :-(
Mr. Bones and Cruella De Vil. Didn't my mom do AMAZING on this dalmation coat?! I know, she gets most the credit, I only bought it all and put it together!

Makenzie got this trick or treat bucket from my Dad and stepmom, and she kept loving and kissing it! So cute.
