5 Quirky things about me..... (I had to ask Craig these question just to see what he said)
1. I for the life of me cannot keep my car cleaned.
2. I love buying my kids clothes even though they have no room in their dressers.
3. I can't eat any food after the expiration date even if it looks and smells fine, its a mental thing.
4. I am obsessed with smells, my kids have to smell yummy, my house has to smell clean and my Laundry has to smell good.
5. one of my favorite thing is getting into bed just after my sheets have been cleaned. Something about the feel to the smell I love, its soothing.

I can't believe that today is the 2 year mark of when Makynna started Chemo. What a huge day for us. It has been a long road and we still have many hurtle to jump but I cannot believe the change in my Makynna then and now. She is doing amazing and I am so thankful for all of our loving friends and family that made it as easy as possible for just being there for us.

Thanksgiving has come and gone so fast so let me fill you in on what we did for Thanksgiving. My dad's brother and family came to visit us from Utah and we had so much fun. My kids enjoyed every minute with their cousins ridding quads and motorcycles to going and hanging out on the beach to just having sleepovers with them. Our Thanksgiving was super hectic but we loved every minute of it. In total I think there were 50 of us at one person's house which get a little crazy. The food that we had was way more then any person should see in a lifetime. We defiantly had a GREAT time!!! Moving on to this month we haven't really been doing much even though I feel totally busy. I just had my last final which I'm totally excited for, threw a progressive dinner for church and now on Saturday I will put on my Dad's work Christmas party and then we head off to Stanford on Sunday for a routine checkup. After that I think I can finally breath, once I get all my Christmas shopping done. I don't know were the time goes but I wish there were more time in the days.

We got some pretty amazing news on Thursday Makynna can now go into public places! What a huge milestone for us. I never ever thought that this day would come. She actually went with us to church today for the first time in two years and it was hard but fun. Its a whole new world for her. I took her to the grocery store and it was like a kid in a candy store. She was running through wanting to help me put things in my basket. It was pretty funny.

October 16 Makynna Lynn turned turned three years old. It has taken me a little bit to post her pictures. Brooklynne and Makynna had their birthday party at a local park. They had so much fun playing with friends, eating cupcakes and opening their gifts. It was a fun party. Makynna loves books and anything princess. I just can't believe that she is already three.

How cute is she!!! We just got back from a long Sanford trip and everything is looking good. They have stopped IVIG (which is a immune system booster) so we don't have to go down every 4 weeks. Now its every 8 weeks or so which is huge considering we have been making that trip every 4 weeks not to mention that it sucks!!! Makynna is still making huge strides everyday which is exactly what they want. We did everything from vision, audiology, cardio, hand doctors to making splints for her hands at night to more and more blood work. She has gone through more than any kid should have to go through. We started our appointments at 9 a.m. and finished our last about 4 p.m. what a day not to mention we had a couple the following day. The one thing I do have to say is that I love the care she gets down at Stanford. They treat her like a person instead of a patient. Its amazing. She started speech therapy twice a week in our home and she is doing amazing.

We have been canning everything from Tuna as you can see to Raspberry Jams and Applesauce. WOW what a job especially with kids. We canned 175 pints of tuna (that's a lot of freaking tuna!)between my family we have done about 360 quarts of applesauce and about 100 pints of Jams. I am so sick of canning and still want to learn how to do peaches, apple pie filling, and pears. Maybe I will try to do it in a couple of weeks. My kids have lots of fun helping except the clothes that we wore canning tuna we had to throw them away because they smelled so bad!

We finally got to go to the Pumpkin Patch on Tuesday with Craig. The kids have been bugging me since the pumpkin patch first open. Lately I have been feeling like the days rush by without me being able to take a breath. I get the feeling of being stress because I'm not able to get the things accomplished for that day. So Tuesday was so much fun because we got to hang out as a family. The kids had a blast.
