Scope Results

Mark had his 6 week scope yesterday and his doc said everything looked good! Still didn't see any tumors back! Of course, we have to wait on the oncology results that should be back next week to be sure. So the BCG is continuing to work! He has 3 more weeks of the BCG treatments again. Then if the next scope it good he should start getting to go longer in between his scopes!! Woo-hoo! I am sure he is looking forward to that!!!

Elle Having A Hay Day..

Elle is learning about farm animals at school.  Today when she got there they had an amazing set up of all kinds of fun farm animals!  She had an absolute blast and wasn't afraid at all...except when the pigs would squeal really loud.. she did get a little nervous!

Elle holding a funky looking chicken..hee hee!

The llama that seemed to always have a chicken on his back.

The pot belly pig that squealed when you picked him up.

Petting and brushing a good ole goat!

She wasn't quite sure about the black pigs..

This pot belly pig was quiet and friendly..the black ones were noisy and hyper.

My COLORFUL Morning...

Well..since I don't feel good today I decided to stay home and clean the garage and strip Elle's car seats..clean them etc.  Just what I should be doing while being sick, right?  I thought Elle was being so good ..so quiet.. letting me get these yucky chores done.  Until I realized she was being so quiet because she was having a wonderful ART TIME with my WALL!!!   She is SO artistic!  Gotta LOVE 2 year olds!!  

Egypt Tour

Hailee had an Egypt tour at school on Friday!  The kids all dressed up like Egyptians and all had a big project to present on a different subject about Egypt.  I was amazed at all the costumes and all the amazing projects.  Hailee's class had a life size Egyptian that Mrs. Tibke named the foreign exchange student..hee hee!  Another boy had a life size wrapped mummy with all the gooey organs in cups.  Very creative!  Hailee's project had to be on hieroglyphics.. so she did a guessing game.  

Hailee looking like an Egyptian!

Hailee and her best friend, McKenna!!

Fall Baseball..In Full SWING

We are in full swing of another baseball season!  Mark is still the head coach and we are the Indians this fall.  Hayden had to move up to kid pitch and it has been so different!  Kid pitch definitely takes the game to a whole new level!  They can steal bases etc.  The boys are doing great for being the young ones and it being their first season of kid pitch.  Hayden is actually pitching and doing really well with it.  He hit his first in park home run last game!  Way to go Hayden!!

Labor Day Weekend in Flagstaff

We had a great time in Flagstaff this past weekend with Grandma and Poppy Baker.  The weather was gorgeous...couldn't have been better.  The few rainfalls were so refreshing!  The kids got to horseback ride, play outside and ride the motorcycles too.  The only downfall was we had to take Elle to Urgent Care Sunday morning with welt like hives all over her body.  She was taking Amoxicillin for an ear infection and we don't know if she had an allergic reaction to that or something else up there.  She is still on a oral steroid and it seems to be helping.. but the rash is still there..ugh!  Not sure what is going on.  Hope everyone had a safe and relaxing weekend!

Pics of the kids riding...even Elle has a little Fisher Price motorcycle to ride up there.

Elle and her cousin, Carson, in the tractor!
