Chandler's Surgery

Chandler has been having some issues with ear infections, diminished hearing, snoring, & speech problems. After seeing her pediatrician, speech therapist, & ENT, it was decided that the 1st step in correcting these problems were to take out her adeniods & put in ear tubes. So, this past week, that is what we did.
We checked in to the outpatient surgery area & they gave Chan some medicine to relax her.....she got so silly. She just kept giggling & laughing. Daddy & I were laughing so hard that we had tears in our eyes.

The surgery went fairly quick & she was soon back in recovery. She was not happy to have the IV in her hand.....but they did give her a monkey that had a surgical mask on. After a few tears, she went home & spent the day resting.

Next up: weekly sessions with a speech therapist.

Go Spurs Go!

Earlier this week, I told you that Santa was able to get us tickets to the SA Rampage. Well, Santa also surprised us with tickets to the SPURS!! Last week, we went to see the Spurs take on the Dallas Mavericks. IT WAS SO MUCH FUN!!

Cheney is already planning our next trip to see the Spurs.
My kids--ready for the big game!!

Our view of the court

Cheney loved every minute of the game.....he tried to get on the jumbotron all night long!!

Chandler had fun but was really more interested in the Spurs cheerleaders & how many times they changed clothes.

Thanks to Groupon, Santa brought us tickets to see the SA Rampage. The kids had never been to an ice hockey game so it was a lot of fun!!
The Rampage were playing the Texas Stars. It was so much fun!! The Rampage won too.

Daddy & Bubba watching the game. Cheney thought the fights were the best part!! There were three.

Chandler was really intrigued when the guys got put in "time out" for playing mean.

Best part of the night? Daddy was feeling so lucky after this picture that he entered a contest and won $300!! WOO HOO!! Way to go Daddy!!

New Year's Eve Fun

It is a tradition that Pop usually makes us homemade sopapillas for New Year's Eve, but this year, we did something different because not very many people joined us so we didn't want Pop to work so hard. This year, we had chocolate fondue. It was a hit!!
