Karter's Birthday

Yes, we're still here. I know, I know... it's been a long time since I've posted anything. I'm so sorry. I have to admit, this kind of fell to the back burner once I went back to work. So I may have to do this update in 2 parts.

Part 1

On January 9, my little Karter Henry turned 2. Seriously, where did the time go? He was so excited about his birthday! He helped get ready for his big day by making cupcakes to take to daycare. That was fun for him! Then, since his birthday was on a Friday, we planned a Chuck-E-Cheese birtday party for him. As it turned out, we got tons of snow that Friday. The weather was pretty crappy, but we still headed up to Sioux City. Unfortunately, the snow and a basketball game meant some of our family couldn't be there. Those of us that did make it had a good time. Since my brother drives the snow plow, he kept us up to date on the road conditions. (Thanks Jason!)

As for an update on Brent... We went back to see Dr Wender about 1 1/2 weeks ago. They reduced his dose down to 400mg/day (he was at 500mg/day). Unfortunately the side effects stayed about the same. It really just varies from day to day. We go back to see Dr W on Jan 28th. Hopefully his numbers are still going down. That is just so encouraging!!!

Anyway, here are a few pictures for you all to enjoy! I'll try update again later today. I have to get going, because my mom and us girls are going to see a movie this afternoon.

Brent was in heaven at ChuckECheese. You can't really see it, but I was trying to capture the long chain of tickets that he had just won! I guess I know where to have his next b-day party...
Karter rode this horse (a.k.a. dootch) quite a bit that night.
Who wouldn't want to ride in the car with C-E-C?
