Donuts for Dad

Melissa's class had Donuts for Dads. She was so proud to have Paul take her to school and to stay for donuts. As you can see from the picture she was on happy girl!



Pumpkin Carving and Halloween 2010

October 29th & 31st 2010

We carved our annual family pumpkin Melissa had fun this year. She had fun feeling of the inside of the pumpkin and all the seeds. I made us some roast pumpkin seeds this year and she loved them.














This year for Halloween Melissa dressed up as Jessie from "Toy Story". She really got in to the part. We meet up with some of her friends and spent the evening at our Church Fall Festival.
























Baby Shower for Baby Peanut

October 17, 2010


My dear friends Terria and Lisa throw me a Diaper and Gift Card baby shower. Since Paul and I kept almost everything of Melissa's we really didn't need anything for Baby Peanut. Yes, Baby Peanut can use a new outfit, but we didn't need all the big items. So I told Terria and Lisa we need diapers. It was a nice shower and had lots of fun with family and friends. Not much longer and Baby Peanut will be here. Thanks Terria and Lisa for a wonderful shower!










































Tea Party


October 12, 2010


Melissa was invited to her 1st tea party. She was excited to dress up and go have tea with her friends. The girl's all looked so cute dressed up.






Melissa's vest treatment

On Friday, October 1st Melissa had her CF Clinic appointment. She is doing well and growing like a weed. Her doctors are very pleased to see her doing so well. As the winter gets closer we start to get worried that she will come down with something, but she has had her flu shot so that will help, but can't keep the head cold away from her at school. Melissa's Doctor and Respiratory therapist think that it's time for Melissa to have her own Vest. In the past Paul and I have been doing her CPT's, but the Vest is supposed to be better for her and it also helps clear her lungs (if she has anything in them) better. Here is the website about the Vest if you want to know more http://www.thevest.com/
The Vest was invented for CF patients so it's one of a kind. Now days it's being used for other patients with other lung problems.

Melissa received her Vest on Saturday and after being trained on how to use it, she has been using the vest everyday. We requested a pink vest, but they sent her a black one. Should be getting the pink one soon. I just wanted to give you and up date on the new treatment for Melissa. She can do her breathing treatments while the vest is on. As you see in the video she likes it for now, but she might get tired of it like she does with her breathing treatments. Check out the video below.

Pumpkin Patch and Paul's Birthday


October 2, 2010


DD came in this weekend. We had to go to the pumpkin patch while she was her. We went to a new Pumpkin Patch on this year Celina's Big Orange Pumpkin Farm. We enjoyed it a lot and can't wait tell next Fall to take Baby Peanut with us. She will be almost one when we come back. Melissa enjoyed petting the animal's riding the train and taking a hay ride around the farm. They have a pretty little Chapel that they rent out for weddings. It would be a nice place to get married.















We also celebrated Paul's 43rd Birthday!












Melissa being a good mommy


September 19, 2010


As we start to get ready for Baby Peanut to arrive I came across a box full of baby things. Melissa took over one item and as you can see she is a good mommy to her baby doll.



Melissa see Veggie Tales Live




On September 24, 2010 Paul and I took Melissa to see Veggie Tales Live at our Church. Melissa's friend was also there and they had a blast. It's amazing how we go to all the kids shows but Paul and I never get to go do Adult things anymore.
