This Blog is being done by Andrew so it won't be as good as Danette's but here I go:

How Life Has Been Lately......
Our Son Caleb has got sick almost 2 weeks ago. We first thought it was the flu. He had a hard time eating. It hurt so bad going down his throat that he wouldn't eat. Those who know Caleb know this is a big thing for him. He lost enough weight that they put him in the hospital to hydrate him and get him eating. After many tests, a transfer to Primary Childrens hospital in Salt Lake City , and an operation that used scoped his throat they found he had blisters down his esophagus they think are related to cold sores(they are still doing tests on a sample they took to confirm this). They put him on a medicine to help this and he is doing way better. He left the hospital on Saturday hydrated and eating. The pain is still there but not very strong. He is eating and should be well enough to start school this Thursday.

There were many people who asked about this and expressed support. Thank you to Amber(Danette's sister) for baby sitting, Sister Gilbert for the food, and Trudy, Sister Livingston(I am bad with names so I am sorry if I messed this up!), and Sister Pratt for help cleaning the house, and Darwin and Wanda and Amber for transportation help. It looked Nice. I could have done better getting the word out. Thank you to you all for the support and prayers!! It really means a lot!

Fun for the Rest of us
Marysa, Azalea, Joshua, and Eli were very patient last week. Marysa showed lots of confidence and competence in those times that she spent watching the kids while Me and Danette were with Caleb. Before this came up we had scheduled with My Dad and Uncle, My brother Peter and his wife Julie, and our family to visit my Uncles cabin. I felt the healthy four deserved fun so I left Primary childrens on Friday night so we could spend Saturday at the cabin.

The day started out lucky: With a double yolk egg:

We had lots of fun riding horses

Eli rode a horse hanging onto Marysa but I didn't get a picture. I got this picture. My uncle made Marysa and Azalea not wear sandles. Eli saw them trying on cowboy boots and had to participate. He was quite mad that we didn't let him wear the boots in the picture outside and around the horses.
I forgot you can't ride a horse in a skirt(I really missed Danette not being there). So Azalea borrowed some pants. I love this picture by the way.
We also went tubing in a ice cold stream.
It is Eli's birthday today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I know Danette has already done something on facebook, but I thought I would add that Eli has the ability to fall asleep almost everywhere and in any position. Remember we didn't pose or effect these positions in anyway. He did this all by himself. Each one of these occurred on a different day:
We'll start off Normal. I included this because it is cute.
 Caleb is asleep in the first but not the second(he just looks like it. It is the angle to TV. Why move kids who will sleep on the couch all night?)
