Samantha's surgery!

Samantha had a vascular abnormality in her knee. Which is a cluster of blood vessels that have formed wrong and just keep growing more vessels. She had the 1st surgery in November and this was her 2nd & final surgery (at first they told us from 2-5 surgeries!). She did awesome, but had a hard time with the IV she cried. They just give her a sleepy medicine and pain medicine so she will stay still, and then they inject dye in her knee under ultrasound they can see the cluster of veins. They then inject a solution which turns to foam after it goes in, and that fills the vessels with foam and no more blood. As the foam dissolves away so do the blood vessels. It takes the foam 6-8 weeks to dissolve. It is a pretty easy procedure, and if you have to do it multiple times this is the way to go. We are glad to be done, and we just have to watch her knee to see if it comes back again! Thankfully she had excellent doctors and also wonderful new procedures which make it so they don't have to surgically remove the vessels.

Ryan & I's songs!

If you would like a flashback select
"Tubthumping" or "Truly, Madly, Deeply"!
These were the 2 songs we danced to at our wedding reception!
Note: Our reception was in a church, I was a little rebellious!

Sorry you are all invited!

Please forgive me for blocking my blog, but we got creepy message from someone we didn't know. His blog spot was also very questionable, so we blocked it to everyone except our family and friends. If you too would like to block your blog from weirdos, it's under setting the under permissions. Thanks!

Friday Night @ the Crockett's

This is the kids last Friday night exhausted and all laying with Ryan. This was not even posed! Today I shoveled off the tramp so the kids could jump. We all have cabin fever, and Jaxsyn stands by the backdoor and says jumpy, jumpy, jumpy!

This looks better!

Ryan Thinks this is more like it! Isn't he so loving!

The Nightmare of the Smiling Shark!

Okay, I have been dreaming of this stupid shark every night! Ryan think's it's hilarious! See how he's smiling at me! At first I was in the ocean with him and then thanks to the Today show (they visited the Georgia Aquarium), I've been in an aquarium with him almost every night the last 2 weeks. I think I'm a little nervous to snorkel and scuba dive in a few weeks! At least he's always just smiling at me not attacking! Right!

Happy Valentine's Day!

We had a great time on Valentine's Day! Those who know me know I'm a holiday junkie! I decorated the kitchen with hearts and all pink, red, and white plates & cups etc. That morning the kids got some cute Valentine stuff and we had a pink heart pancakes for breakfast. Ryan & I and Coleman & Jaxsyn had lunch together! I helped with Ashlynn's school party and made love bugs with her class. For dinner we had yummy food and I made jello cups with chocolate hearts on the inside. That was the hit of the night! Ryan & I don't celebrate Valentine's Day for each other we think it's day that will just end in disapointment, and we would rather show how much we love each other on different days!! We both whole "Heart"edly agree with this, which makes us a perfect match!

Will It Ever Stop Snowing!

We get to shovel about 6 inches every other day. Okay, Ryan gets to shovel every other day! I think he will breakdown and buy a snowblower this year! I'm sure it is great to keep us from a drought, but it sure makes the winter blahs worse. I can't wait for spring and summer!
