Hockey GIRLS?

Yes it's true. The girls are following in their big brothers footsteps and are playing roller hockey for our little roller hockey league by our house. It started with Finley who wanted to play and now Mia is following her lead. They love it and roller all around the house and the yard all day. When they start games I will get some good pics.

On another note, kevin and I went last week to Las Vegas to see DAVE RAMSEY!!! Dave's program has changed out lives and our family tree as we are out of debt. Investing and now working on paying off our mortgage. It is phenomenal how far we have come in 2 years so when I saw that dave was in Vegas (3 hour drive for us) during my birthday week, I jumped at the chance back in October to buy tickets. We had a blast and dave was amazing as always. We stayed at the Mandalay bay and just literally slept and ate. It was very relaxing and a great birthday.

Things are well around here. Finley goes back to school after doing break (march 25) and she is ready. Bowels are at about 90% function returned and bladder at about 20% returned. It will be a while till its 100% but she Is fine during school hours so she will return in 2 weeks. She has been on home hospital and its been awesome having a teacher come to our house every day to work with her - but all good things must come to an end :(

The rest of the kids are doing fine. Lots of sports and lots of work-- I'm tired :)

Just for the PHO of it!!

The girls live pho. Pho is Vietnamese noodle soup. We choose vegy pho and get massive bowl and share it. It's the girls favorite and since its super cheap we go here and there. Here are a few pics of the girls favorite pho!!

Btw fin is doing amazing!! Bowel is 100% back and bladder is maybe 20% back. She sometime feels the need to pee and some comes out but when we cath her after there is usually quite a but of urine in there still. We were told by urology that when her bladder function was coming back that she would pee a bit and the we would still need to cath. Basically fin is following exactly what they said she would be doing. Her function is well on its way back and we are thrilled. Praise God!!!!
