Well we made it home from the Hospital just in time for Christmas this year! We loaded up the car and made the snowy drive with my parents to Logan for Christmas Eve, it was so nice to be in Utah this year! We had missed Christmas the last 2 years with the family! It was so nice to party with the Pursers! I love to see how much my grandparents love our kids! We enjoyed dinner, games and opening gifts! Then loaded to car and headed home! My parents helped me with the final touches for Christmas morning, we set everything up , and then called it a night! When the kids woke up in the morning, we opened gifts, and just hung out with the cousins! We had such a fun year, We sure missed Steve, but were grateful to have family to spend it with!
A few days before Christmas this year, Millie was not acting like herself! She is the most happy, easy going baby ever....She was super fussy, and congested. I took her in to the instacare and they said nothing was wrong that she had a cold and there was really nothing I could do about it! So away we went, ready to fight this cold! Well a few days later, she was still acting fussy, and just not happy, and I realized she wasn't eating, and I had only changed one wet diaper that day and that concerned me... I kept debating if I should take her or not, and finally I trusted my gut and off to the ER we went! Well thankfully we went in, when we got there they gave her an iv for fluids since she was dehydrated, and they checked her oxygen and it was super low, so they hooked her up to oxygen and they just kept monitoring her! It was so sad to see her hooked up to machines, they took her blood to do tests, after about 5 hours they told me she needed to take an ambulance to Riverton hospital and was going to be admitted! So they loaded her up in the ambulance and away we went! She ended up staying for 2 days due to RSV, so sad to see your baby so miserable and not be able to do anything for it! She ended up being on oxygen for a while and having to get the snot sucked out of her nose a few times a day! Thankfully we got to go home on Christmas Eve, and could spend the holidays with my amazing family!
The week before Halloween we loaded the kids up(all 7 ) with my Mom, Maddie and I, and we went to Hee Haw farms! We had a BLAST! WE played in the corn, went down slides, petted ALL the animals, went down more slides, and picked out pumpkins! We had such a great time!
This year on Halloween we dressed up as Minnie and Mickey Mouse! We enjoyed the Purser party, all the fun crazy food, games, and costumes! We sure missed Steve but we did have an amazing party! On Halloween my Dad and I dressed up the kids and took them trick or treating around the neighborhood, Millie didn't last long due to the cold weather, so we took her back home to hang out with my Mom and my Dad and I went back out! We didn't think Anderson would last as long as he did! He had a blast and LOVED getting candy so we took him out another two times! It was a great Halloween!!!
We have sure come along way since we got married! We have been married for 4 years. Steve is deployed right now and me and the kids are living in Utah with my parents! We have Anderson who is 2 and Millie who is 2 months! We are loving every little thing about our amazing family!
