It's all fun and games until.....
Yesterday was Scott's birthday. I talked it up with the girls like it was a trip to Disneyland. They were so excited and spent most the day decorating, making the cake, and designing gifts and cards, etc. One of the nice things about keeping the girls in a bubble is that everything has become a lot more simple in our house. They get excited over small things now. It was so nice to see Amanda laughing, playing, and getting excited. She seems to be over her viral bug. It fortunately was a short one and she is getting back to herself again. She also had her port de-accessed by her "favorite" nurse before the party. She gets so nervous to have it done even though it's becoming quite routine. But with total irony, it was all fun and games until she fell off the kitchen bench and banged up her knee pretty badly as soon as Scott came home. She couldn't walk for a while and was limping most the night. Poor thing, it's two steps forward, one step back with everything she does right now. But, most the day was very happy and fun for her. It hasn't been that way for a long time. It must have been some party because she's been asleep for 13 hours now. Who would have thought that eating cake and opening presents was so much work?
Here are some pictures of Amanda starting to feel better.
1. Girls making Dad's birthday cake. Wow, they are actually cooperating.
2. Getting some fresh air on the backyard swing in her new favorite hat.
3. The Nef version of camping - cooking smores on your backyard BBQ
and sleeping in your own bed that night!
