the p & s is signed and we are moving at the end of january. so, in order to keep my mind off of the millions of things i need to do i have been baking!
the eggnog cranberry muffins are for dre...since he drinks about 20 gallons of eggnog during the christmas season. the cookies are chocolate crinkles....delicious!


some pictures

here are a few more pictures from danny!



i pride myself on the fact that my kids rarely get sick, and when they do they get over it so quickly. that doesn't seem to be the case lately. so, in order to make myself fell better i blame my kids constant sickness, runny noses, etc on the fact that alexa is now in school and getting germs from other kids. sounds good, right?!?!?

well we were with some friends last week and they had strep, but did not know it. when i woke up yesterday i felt terrible and decided to get checked out at the minute clinic. i had to be all brave (the kids were watching) and get a throat culture and i indeed had strep. so, the kids and i went straight to the pediatrician and even though they were symptom free, they also had strep. so, andre came home and came to my rescue.

now i am trying my hardest to feel better because we are seeing the CELTICS tonight!


it's official

our house is for sale!
so, if your looking for a great home in danvers...we have one for you!
we are going to miss our house because, we love it!
please pray that it will sell quickly and at a good price.


5 guys

we were eating at 5 guys the other night and on our sandwiches there were number stickers. it seemed sooo fitting to label the kiddos according to their birth order! they wore the stickers all night!

meet levi

he is actually almost 3 weeks old now, but there he is at 4 days. too cute. we love babies! congrats joe and angela!


the celtics start tonight and we couldn't be more excited around here.


trauma drama

well, we did it! terrible, terrible, terrible!
On the way to the dentist (i ended up being the one to take her) i started talking to her about how there are 2 reasons to go to the dentist...cleaning and work. she would be getting work. as i am explaining that it will feel like a shot then she won't feel anything tears starting streaming down her face. We stopped at walgreens and she got to choose whatever candy she wanted. i was not thinking at the time that she would not be able to eat it after...oops. so, we were getting out of the car at the dentist and she asked for prayer. what do you pray!?!? you know it's gonna hurt! they called us in the room and i laid in the chair with her in my lap and the dentist explained what she was going to do.
they did the numbing cream then the shot. wow, she can scream! we waited about 5 minutes and go some more shots and she screamed again. then the dentist starting wiggling them and she was screaming that she could feel it, so more shots. the dentist grabbed the pliers and just pulled them right out. there was more screaming then we left!
this morning she did say that it did not hurt after the first 'pinch' but she thought it was going to so she screamed....you know just in case ;)
so, andre felt great compassion and gave her 5 dollars!
\today, she is very excited to be sooo big and not have her front two teeth!



monday we are scheduled to get alexa's 2 teeth pulled...
i will not be telling her until we get in the car to go.
and we decided no tooth anything..WE will take the credit and give her money for her teeth!
although, after getting teeth pulled she may need a special treat!



alexa has been complaining the last few days about her teeth hurting. i kept telling her i'd look, but kept forgetting. so today while brushing teeth she said they hurt. i looked and guess what i saw...2 permanent teeth growing behind her bottom front teeth! so weird and have never seen that before. she is very excited. i called the dentist and she said it was pretty normal and we are getting it all checked out on thursday.
alexa was so excited and has been telling everyone about it. the woman at the library asked her about the tooth fairy...she of course looked at the woman like she had 14 heads! so, we need to figure that out.
