Taking it Over!
On Friday our tenant is leaving and we are knocking down walls to take over the upstairs. I'll be posting some 'before and after' pictures so 'stay tuned'. For all you curious people who have clued in that we will now have many bedrooms in our house-NO, we do not plan on filling them all-at least not too quickly! Ha, ha. Left you hanging on that one!

Christmas Tree

Thanks to Megan we have a Christmas tree this year! At least Taun won't be rolling on the floor laughing at it!...let me explain: The first Christmas tree we ever had was a real tree cut down from Dad VanDyk's tree lot. Dan thought the top of one of the trees looked best so he lopped it off and brought it home. I did my best to decorate it but it still looked like a 'Charlie Brown tree'. Taun couldn't stop laughing at it and I've been scarred for life! It's been about 3 years and I finally have the courage to display another tree-but not a real one!

Life at the VanDyk's
Well, no pics for a while folks. We are just surviving these days. For the past 8 weeks the girls have had colds, fevers, and earaches. Just when we thought we were through, they both ended up with another earache! Poor kids. Then on Sunday night I went to emerg for some serious tooth pain and was given some anitbiotics and pain killers. I went to the dentist at 9:00 Monday morning and was home by 10:00 with one less tooth. There was a chronic cyst under a molar and boy did it hurt. So, Mia, Ksena, and I have been vegging on the couch all week like zombies hoping to get better. Dan has been very busy at work this week and is in need of some sleep too. I should mention, that we would not be getting through this with ease without the help of faithful Nana and Papa. They have babysat numerous times and we truly appreciate it! You spoil us with care!

Oh so Wrong!
Well, Ksena's bumbs were not blistering like chicken pox do, so off to the clinic we went. Apparently she is reacting to antibiotics that she had for an earache. Mia is also illergic to penicillin but she only had two hives when she was on it. This was a tricky one to figure out since Mia reacted while taking the meds and Ksena didn't break out until she was done them.

Oh So ITCHY!!!
Looks like our Ksena has caught chicken pox!! So far she's cheerful but she's scratching. Poor little thing!

Mia has to say 'hi baby' at least once a day! She can't wait till the baby is born. 12 more weeks to go.
