I figured this would be a good time for a family update.  

Danny ~ Work has been slow, so he's been at home helping his wife with the house and baby.  He is anxious to leave the snow, and he longs for the ocean.  His wrist is still bothering him (after his accident wake surfing this summer), and we're praying that the weather change doesn't give him too much trouble.  He came back from hunting last weekend with a deer in the ice chest, so we are good on meat, praise the Lord.

Brittney ~ Is feeling sick, and tired with baby number two.  She is hoping that the morning, afternoon, evening sickness will soon go away.  And also that she will be able to get a couple full nights of sleep.  She is still taking care of a little boy three days a week, and a full time wife and mom.  She is sooo thankful that she has such an amazing husband to help her when he can!  

Sati ~ Is a wild woman!  She is in the "pull everything out and spread it out all over the house" stage.  She just had a check up a couple weeks ago and she's only in the fifth percentile  for weight.  So, the Dr. gave her permission to eat all of those yummy high calorie foods, like butter (she's loving it).   She loves the little boy that comes over, but wonders why mom doesn't want her to wake him up too play.

#2 ~ Is a picky little fellow!  He (or she) doesn't like the fresh venison that dad just brought home.  "He" loves soups, veggies, and chocolate.  "He" only lets mom sleep for about half the night, and sure lets her know when she's not doing something right.  "He" just had a Dr.s appt. on monday and is officially 10 weeks old.  The Dr. said that "he" looks healthy, and "he" even moved during the ultrasound.

So now that you are in the know about how our family is, how is yours?

Comfort Foods

Every time I get sick, or don't feel well, all I want is potato soup!  It's been this way sense i was a kid.  

I have been feeling somewhat awful from day #1 with baby #2, so as you might have guessed I've been through bowls and bowls of of the stuff.  I doubt that this is a good thing because really what is good for you in potato soup... yeah, just about nothing.  Why is it then, that it makes me feel so much better?

I guess it's my cure all, comfort food.  
Do any of you have a "cure all" when you're feeling under the weather?
