Dave Ramsey Live!

Last week we saw Dave Ramsey (DR for short) live in Grand Rapids. It was our first time seeing him live and we had a blast. Our only Christmas present to each other last year was platinum tickets to the event that included a catered meal. So here's what they served: prime rib, red skin mashed potatoes, sauteed green beans with onion, hummus with veggies and pita bread, rolls with chive butter, salad and chocolate cake. We both got gift bags with 5 or 6 six books, two of which were signed copies, insulated coffee cup, mints and pens. The best part of the night was getting to meet DR. He came around to each table and made some small talk. He answered questions for a few minutes while we ate. They had a catered snack too which looked good, but by the time we got back to the food, they gave us less than 5 minutes to eat and booted us out. I still can't figure that one out. The night was so positive and motivating for us. Our goal is to be debt free including our house in 10 years. Can we do it? Only time will tell.

Logan's 1st birthday party!

Logan's birthday party was a lot of fun. Pa and grandma Shane gave him his own cake. He loved it and kept putting just his thumb in it. He finally dug in as you can see.

Toddler Talk!

This week my house has been taken over by giggling toddlers. They're driving me crazy! Every other sentence has poop, potty, wee wee or pee pee in it. One kid will say it and they will all laugh like it's the funniest thing they have ever heard. Rescue us someone! Someday I will look back on it and we'll laugh. The kids also like to tease Isaac that he "LOVES Hannah Montana". He gets really mad so this just encourages the others. I told Rick to remember this when Isaac is 16 and no longer "Hates girls!" LOL

Logan is turning one!

Logan is turning one in two weeks. I won't have a little baby anymore. He already thinks he's two any how. Here's our first picture together and his first time nursing.

Weekly Update

It's been a busy week for us. We met with the neurologist (Dr. O'Donnell) today. We decided not to make any med changes since #1 Olivia is doing well right now and #2 we're going to the myoclonus clinic on Valentine's day in Illinois. Savanna is doing better. Almost done with her antibiotic.
We're starting to think about the next BBQ season. We want to work on getting a website going for the catering. I came across some pictures of last year. We already have one catering job in August and lots of orders for Rick's famous BBQ sauce.
