we miss you and love you and are so sorry we are so far away...five more days and you'll be wishing we were far away again ;)
and something fun for the rest of you, here's stevie bevie at age 3 (26 years ago).
isn't he the cutest?
i'm already failing at the picture-a-day thing. but i have a really good excuse-my parents have been here. they stayed after the wedding junk was over to help me with the kids, since i had four different appointments on three different days in salt lake (reminder: i don't live there any more so it's now a commute). one of those little appointments came with some really great news. it was my six-month tysabri follow-up. i had MRIs and labwork done two weeks ago in preparation for this follow-up visit. i wasn't expecting much; when i first started on tysabri the doctor told me that it's not that common to see lesion reduction, especially not until after at least a year of treatment. and lots of people never see any reduction (for those people tysabri just stops progression of the disease). well, i have had "a significant reduction of lesions" and have "no active lesions." i'm actually getting a little better!!! and i feel a million times better. let's just say monday was a great day. so great, in fact, that i decided to celebrate with a chick-fil-A sandwich + honey mustard dressing. the chicken wasn't worth it, but man, that dressing...
emmy's open house was on saturday. i'm still recovering from all the hard work. i think it turned out pretty fabulous, but i was so tired by the time it happened that i was pretty lazy about the picture-taking.
- nate & em made homemade ice cream (pistachio, mango & vanilla)
- chocolate-dipped waffle + sugar cones with sprinkles, nuts & rainbow chips
- key lime + cheesecake filled cupcakes,
- chocolate dipped cookies
- lemon + cucumber flavored waters.
- twinkle lights + tissue pom garlands + japanese lanterns
- an intimate dance party at the very end.
now they're back in arizona doing the newly-wed thing, apparently still in love ;) and we're returning all the crap we didn't use + getting ready for the final phase of our move to las vegas in two weeks (where we'll reunite with bevie). i can't wait to be with just my little family and have nothing to do but be together...
