Grandma visits!!

Trent and I had a club tournament in Omaha over President's Day. We were so excited that Grandma Sorensen came to visit and watch the kids, especially since we hadn't seen her since before she left on her mission 18 months ago. We had a great time with her going to Costco, the park, the zoo, playing games, visiting and eating lots of great food. The kids loved having their Grandma here and we didn't want to see her go. She is coming for another visit next week so I guess we can't complain too much.

New Car!

We got a new car!! Not a car to be specific, but a van... yes I said minivan. I was one of those people who said I would rather die than drive a minivan when I get older. I also said my babies would never have bald spots... and that happened too. So here I am.

Being married to a very frugal, economical and thrifty man, there really was no arguing that a van was the best choice for us. The most car for the least money. I have to say that it isn't so bad. I actually really like it. I like the power doors on both sides and I like that I have lots of room for all the crap I haul around. Just so happened that I found it on Valentines day and it is a red Honda Odyssey, so we call it is our Valentine Van or Van of Love. Ha ha. I'm just glad to have a car of my own!

Poor Baby!

When we got home from Utah in January, Sienna wasn't a very happy baby. I took her into the doctor where we learned she had double ear infections and RSV. I was so glad I took her in when I did. She had lots of medications for about 10 days, including breathing treatments. She got to the point where she actually liked them, probably because of the steam and the noise. I am glad we don't have to do those all the time. I am very thankful for my healthy baby!
