My twin brothers (plus Nick’s adorable and amazing girlfriend, Allison) graduated from UNT this spring! We had a fantastic time attending their graduations with a tailgate outside the Colosseum in between! We’re so proud of you guys and thrilled we live so close that we could celebrate with you!

Tiny Dancer

Clara dances everywhere and one of my favorite things is to glance over my shoulder while searching a grocery aisle and find her breaking out a few impressive dance moves in the center of the store! This morning she came to me dressed up and asked for me to play “Frozen” for her. It was the first song she could sing- practically the first words she ever declared-so its fitting that its also her request when it comes to a good, releasing dance session! DSC_0705 (Large)

Trampoline fun

My sister, brother, our friend Allison, and I took turns with the camera at Maddie’s birthday get together last night. These photos are a mix of all of our perspectives, which I totally love! DSC_1102

Yellow belt

The three big kids started Taekwondo the first week of January and while Cash decided to take a break (which he later regretted…like as soon as he realized we’d legitimately withdrawn him!), the girls were able to test for and earn their yellow belts in March. Here are pictures of their first Taekwondo awards ceremony!

Their fierce! untitled-67 (Large)

The Graduate: Egg OIT

Happy happy day!!! This girl graduated from egg OIT! She is now at 2 REAL eggs a day for the next month, drops her allergy medicine in 3 weeks, and then we retest! Even better than not needing to mix powdered eggs into a shot of juice twice a day she now can eat them ANY way and earned herself a CUPCAKE from a BAKERY this afternoon! When’s the last time THAT happened!! 5 months ago a chewy spree landed the girl in urgent care, so the view from here is looking pretty sunny today!!!! ☀️

We’ve gone weekly since the end of September for a raise in her egg dosage. She started with micrograms of egg and would take her dosage twice a day with Zyrtec and Xanax to help her body not react! Each dr appointment they give her a little more egg and then monitor her reaction (the first appointment was 8 hours though!) For the most part she’s responded well, but there have been days where she reacted to her am dose and had to be monitored for the day. It’s been lots of missed school, lots of drama as we figure out how to make powdered egg palatable in juice , and LOTS of time! But through the desensitization process she’s gone from reacting to a lick of a chewy spree to handling a whole egg!!!
