Tubes in, Adenoids out!

The day after we got back from our fun vacation, Abby was scheduled to have a minor outpatient surgery. She had her adenoids removed and tubes put into her ears. She did great and was adorable in her little robe :) 
 She thought it was the best thing ever to be able to watch tv from bed!
 The first thing she wanted, besides the 'forced' popsicles, was salt and vinegar chips!! She promptly threw them up after eating the entire bag!
 When we got home from the hospital that day, she was back to her normal self!! *Note the garbage can just in case the McDonald's took a turn for the worse :)

St John, USVI

The day after Thanksgiving, the girls and I boarded a plane and left for a couple days in St. John, Virgin Islands with Uncle Michael and Aunt Melissa and Cousins Maddie and Jake. We went down to see our Island Grandma!! We stayed the first half of the trip at Caneel Bay, which is a luxury resort. Our rooms opened up to our own beach. The kids were in heaven! The second half of the trip, we stayed at the resort that Grandma works at and had our own pool! It was definitely a vacation that spoiled us!
On the plane - Abby read over the safety manual
 All buckled and ready to go!

Underwater fun!
The famous St. John crab races! You pick a crab, then name it and then watch it race the others!

This is what happens when you try to get a kid to take a picture
Can you see the lizard in the bushes to the left of Abby?

 Goodbye St. John!!
