1 Year ago yesturday we were admitted to the Hospital for a bone marrow transplant. I can't believe that it has already been a year. Its amazing how slow time can go and then looking back how fast it seems.
I'm just so excited to see the change in Makynna. She is an amazing little girl. We still have a long way but we have come so far.

Makynna is doing amazing!!! We got some news back right before Christmas and for the first time since transplant 1 year ago her numbers started to climb back up. There are different numbers that they count that make up the bone marrow and they have been staying at 15-20 percent and finally came up to 30 percent which gives us hope that they might start climbing back up. I know that it doesn't seem like much but for her and the numbers always going down and never going up, gives us hope. We have been blessed with another baby girl in which I am due April 17. About 4 weeks ago I had a amnio done to see if this baby had hurlers and we just got the results back yesturday that she is a healthy little girl. No down syndrome or hurlers!!! We are so excited for our new addition. We go down on Wednesday for more testing on Makynna so I will let everybody know when we get results.

So on Thanksgiving day Craig thought he could play tackle football with a bunch of guys and came home with a broken collar bone. Poor poor Craig is what he wants me to think. If its not bad enough to get three kids and myself ready for the day I also have to help Craig get ready because heavens forbid him suck it up and do what he needs to do. I mean I know that it hurts and I am willing to help to a extent but lets just face it guys are BABIES!!!
Alexis is loving school and especially loves the social part of it of course she is a girl. She also loves sports, she just got done with soccer were she average 8-10 goals a game and can't wait for basketball to start. A girl after my own heart!!!
Like a good little boy here is a picture of Jacob doing his homework. He was mad at me so he wouldn't look up but I don't have to fight him to do his school work he loves doing every bit of it I hope he keeps it up.
Makynna watching her sponge bob movie which by the way she loves sponge bob!!! If you look closely she is about 1 inch from the T.V. I know she need glasses but she will not wear them. We also got some good news a couple days before Thanksgiving Stanford called and told us that Makynna's numbers have gone up from 15% to 30%. We are super excited because this is the first good news about her numbers that we have had since her transplant 1 year ago. There is light at the end of the tunnel. We hope that the numbers keep going up.

I was having a relaxing Saturday which I don't get very often when Jody called me and asked me if I knew where my kids were. Without thinking I said of course they are playing out back like they always do. He kinda laugh and said well you might want to look outside, when he had said that I new something wasn't right and I didn't even want to get up to check it out. After my mom got up to see what was going on she couldn't stop laughing and told me not to get up!!! I knew that it couldn't be good so of course I got up to find Alexis, Jacob and Ammon diving and doing belly flops in a huge mud puddle. At this point I thought that they were already muddy so let them play for as long as they could. The thing that made me the maddest was Jacob and Alexis both had brand new shoes on go figure. I am still trying to soak the mud out of their clothes!!! I guess kids will be kids!
It took me scrubbing Alexis hair 5 times until all of the dirt was out.
Luckily my mom had a shower outside so they didn't track mud through the house.

So we finally carved our pumpkins a couple days before Halloween but hey at least we did it. It has been pretty crazy around here but we are looking forward to Halloween. We still don't know what Jacob is going to be but Alexis is going to be Super Girl(go figure) and Makynna is going to be a little witch. I will post pictures of them all dressed up.

Alexis turned 5 years old yesterday. She has been talking about her birthday since Jacob had his Birthday in January. The one thing she had wanted to do was to go bowling so we went bowling with some of her close friends. 20 minutes into bowling the electricity went out and we had to open presents and eat cake waiting to see if it would come back on. After about 30 minutes and nothing happening we called it good and had to go home. Alexis was so sad and she still talks about doing it again. I found out yesterday that the electricity didn't come back on until midnight that night.

Alexis took Ballet all year and at the end of the year they get to put on a little show. Alexis and her group were kitties as you can tell and it was the cutest thing I have ever seen. She loved getting all the attention for a couple of hours plus getting to put a little make-up on.

Jared left on his mission July 5 to the Ogden, Utah Mission!!! We will miss you Harry!
It was a beautiful day in Humboldt County so my kids decided to wash my car. I caught Makynna playing the the water and loving every minute of it.
I don't know what it is about my kids but both Jacob and Alexis take my camera and take random pictures of themselves. I don't know were they learned it because I defiantly don't take pictures of myself.
4TH of July the day before Jared left us.
Craig taking Makynna on a ride!!!
