Nairi's allergies

We recently had Nairi tested for a nut allergy because she had a facial rash after eating pesto and told me her mouth felt sick after eating a cookie that  had walnuts in it. Considering the family history ( Keira had a peanut allergy until about 4 years of age) we decided to have her tested just to be sure. She came back allergic to peanuts, hazelnuts, and walnuts. The peanuts are the lowest. Dr said she could become more allergic or less allergic as she grows. We will retest next year and for now she must avoid all nuts and peanuts ( which are a legume) because nuts are produced in facilities with other nuts. And just to be safe we must carry a Epi Pen again.

Keira's school Christmas show

 This was the only shot I was able to get. She was a sheep. A very cute sheep I might add.
The show was in the church. Nairi thought church behavior was appropriate and it was so cute to see her watching the show with her hands folded like this. Her and Israel were singing the Christmas carols along with everyone else.

Happy 9 Months Samuel

9 months already! Our first baby to hit the 9 month mark and not have any teeth. We gave him his first haircut with the clippers today ( he has had about 3 haircuts already!)

Front entry floor redo- before and after

 Before front entry. Stained  I mean lovely white carpet. Makes sense for a door entry way right???

 After!! The floor flows seamlessly from the kitchen to the front door.

We love it. So easy to clean.

Better late than never! Thanksgiving 2013

Christmas tree 2013

This is the first year of our marriage we have gated the tree. Not sure why/ how we have not needed to before but this year it was a must. We are going light on the house decorations this year as the house is pretty much a mess do to the kitchen floor construction.

Kitchen floor phase one complete

 After a little bit of work ( I'm talking about Mike of course) on Thanksgiving and a full day on Friday and Saturday and a little bit on Sunday the kitchen part of the floor is finished. There is still lots of trim and transition pieces etc but we are thrilled with the way it looks. This weekend its on to phase 2 of the project. The front hallway...
