Spencer got in a fight. . .

 And guess what?  He won!  He left the other guy dead.  Literally.  Unfortunately it was a fight with a bee.  While we were at the beach on Saturday Spencer got stung on the forehead.  He ran up to us and was yelling "Stupid bee!  Stupid bee!"  I was able to get the stinger out right away and then he went on to playing like nothing happened.  He went to bed just fine, but came into our room around 1:30 saying his eye hurt and that it was hard to open.  It wasn't too swollen, so I gave him some tylenol and sent him back to bed (I didn't have any benedryl).  When he woke up the following morning it was a little more swollen and pretty hard to open his eye, but by midday, he couldn't open his eye at all.  We went and picked up some benedryl and kept that in him, but it kept getting more swollen.  The first two pictures are taken that night.  You can see how the swelling took over the entire left side of his face.
 We took him to the doctor Monday morning and got some prescription strength benedryl and a steroid to help with the swelling.  By Monday night things were looking a little better.
It took until Thursday for the swelling to completely go away.  Although it looks so painful, the only time he said it hurt was that first night.  Otherwise he just said that it was annoying that he couldn't open his eye.  We are now an Epi-pen carrying family from this experience, but hopefully will never have to use it.  Better to be safe than sorry.

Natalie's First Lost Tooth

Natalie lost her first tooth on Easter Sunday.  We were at Grandma and Grandpa Higham's and because she knew how much Grandpa Higham loves to pull out teeth, she asked him to do it and he was successful.
Pure excitement on that face!

And because this picture was too darn cute.  These two are the best of buddies.

Happy Easter 2011

 The kids waiting to go down stairs to their Easter baskets and to find their eggs.

 Tanner with his frog sticker.

 Spencer left his basket to find eggs more quickly.

 Hunter could care less about the eggs.  All he wanted was the candy.

 Bailey with her basket.

 And Natalie with hers.

Brett and I were there. 

Hunter finding an egg. 

Spencer checking out his loot.

And finally, a picture of Hunter throwing a fit because he couldn't have more candy after the 10 pieces he had already had.  Poor baby.
