Kayla had her very first piano lesson today. Her teacher's name is Denise. She is very nice and worked really well with Kayla. I don't know the first thing about piano, but she has a bachelors and a masters in Piano Performance. That sounds pretty good to me! Kayla really enjoyed it and wants to "play as good as Aunt Jenny."

This afternoon Caroline and I got to play with my friend's baby while she went to an appointment. Caroline was so excited when she woke up from her nap and found Baby Cole.
Andy and I bought bikes this weekend. We pretty much hated both of them by Sunday night. We took a piece off of my bike, put the baby seat together, discovered it would not fit on my bike, took a part off of Andy's bike, discovered the seat would not fit on his bike either, bought a different baby seat, put it together, it does not fit on Andy's bike, and surprise, it does not fit on my bike either. I returned my bike this morning. I bought one with no bells and whistles and called my dad for help. (Andy is in Wichita today.) It took a while, but the seat is on. Thank you dad! I know Andy thanks you too! Whoever made the seat never actually attached it to a bike! We went for a ride tonight. Caroline never made a peep, other than the few times she said "Momma - go faster." I think she will like it. It is so much easier than chasing Kayla while pushing Caroline in the stroller.

I hope that she has a great first day. I can't wait to hear all about it.
I would like to say she got this amazing talent from her father, but this is the only way he could keep any spoons on his face...
It only took me a few minutes to discover my hidden ability. Pretty amazing!!

I had to get a steroid shot (he wanted to make sure I was feeling some relief before we get on a plane next week), some allergy meds, and a nasal spray.
I hate to say it, but I think this may have been a result of Elfy. The timing is just too right. I was reading about puggles before we got her. I remember telling Andy that I was a little bit worried about Kayla because puggles are not hypoallergenic dogs. I read that if you have an allergy to other animals, you may very well have an allergy to puggles. Kayla has always had some allergy issues. However, as soon as we got the dog I noticed my neck was red and itchy. The ear problem started while we still had her, and the worst day for me was the day I was in the car with Elfy for 2 1/2 hours. I had every intention of cleaning my van out really well after we delivered Elfy back to Jenny. I never did. The pressure in my head got worse every time I spent much time in the car.
I am finally getting relief from the meds. Andy vacuumed out the van really well last night. Having Elfy was a great experience for all of us. I thought even Kayla learned she was not a dog person, but she is still asking for one. Just not as often. She does miss Elfy though. I learned that I am absolutely not a dog person. I knew I was allergic to cats, and now maybe some dogs too. I am so thankful that we got Elfy and were able to return her. That was so much better than finding all of this out after buying a puppy!

I just went to check on them. Caroline is finally going back to sleep. I go in Kayla's room and she is laying on the floor on top of two pillows. I asked her why she was not in her bed. Her answer "It is full of turkey." Sure enough, it is a mess. But is is 5:10 am. My best purchase ever was our little fold out couch that the girls sit on. It makes a great emergency bed! Some messes can wait to be cleaned up later.

At the end of the walk he called me and said he finally figured out a way that he did not have to push the stroller and pull on Elfy...
