First Day of FALL

Fall is my favorite season and I am so glad it is here. Here are the reasons that I love Fall:

-I get to decorate my house if beautiful oranges, greens and reds!

-The weather is not too hot and not too cold

-I get to burn my yummy pumpkin spice candle


-Malia turns 2

-Beautiful Fall leaves

-Green grass

I love this season and can't wait to get more of it. Go outside and enjoy FALL!

A New Baby and More of Baily's Infected Eye

Hip hip hooray! I have a new nephew! He is the cutest little guy ever! Tami was able to start into labor on her own (3 hours before she was scheduled to be induced) and she had Spencer Jay Higbee at 1 am on Wednesday morning( 9-9-09). She labored so well and we were all so impressed with how she tolerated the pain. I am so proud of my baby sis.

Spencer was 8 lbs. 1 oz. (pretty good for 12 days over due) and has the most adorable blond hair. It was such a privilege to be able to see him come into this world. I can't wait to get to know him!
Baily woke up Tuesday morning with her eye looking like this.
It was 10 times worse. I took her back to the doctor and they diagnosed her with orbital cellulitious, an infection that gets into the tissue around the eye. There is risk of it getting into the optical nerve or even into the brain. But heaven was looking down on us because it could have been a lot worse and she didn't have the usual pain and fevers with it.

The doctor gave us a stronger antibiotic...when I say strong I mean an $80 antibiotic...all I have to say is that better do some serious bacteria killing! Her eye looks sooooo much better, and she is going to be just fine. Thank goodness for prayer and medicine!

Labor Day Fun

The thing I love most about living where we do is the amazing mountains that are within walking distance to us. We started the morning off with a hike and had so much fun. The weather was great and we are all so content to be in the mountains. Even Baily strapped on a backpack (filled with one apple that she ate as soon as we started hiking). Here are some pictures of us having fun.

Good thing we did something fun in the morning cause the rest of the day was spent in the doctors office with Baily and her infected eye, and then driving around trying to find a pharmacy that was open. The doctor said it was some kind of allergy that got into her eye, that turned into an infection. Poor girl. It's her left eye. The picture doesn't show how red and swollen it is, but you get the idea. (Notice her cute hair cut! Kylee got hers cut short too.

Happy Labor Day!
