Aren't they adorable???

Seriously, aren't my boys adorable? You know they're cute when they even look good in Iowa clothes (could you sense that my nose was pulled up when I said that?). Just imagine how cute he'd look in Nebraska Red!!!

We had Karter's two year pictures taken, and they turned out SO adorable so I thought I'd share a few. We focused on Karter this time, so there's no new pictures of Brody.

We've had a rough week. Karter came down with a nasty fever on Saturday. He even had to come home from Grandma's house because of it. That's when you know it's pretty bad. I ended up taking him in to the dr on Monday, and he tested positive for RSV. It was good to know what we were working with, but unfortunately there's nothing they could give him. Just wait it out... and keep him away from his little brother. We took Brody in yesterday just to get him checked out, and so far he has not caught that nasty little bug!

Brent had an appt with Dr Wender again yesterday. Praise God that everything looked good! His numbers were good and everything looked as it should. Next week Wednesday we will go for another bone marrow test.

Thank you all for praying for us as we go through this. We truly are blessed!

Oh yeah, in case anyone is wondering where we had the pictures taken, Niki Kruid took them. She works at Interstates with me, but I can really tell that photography is her passion. If you're interested in contacting her, you can email her at Thanks for doing such a great job, Niki!

Howdy Y'all

Howdy, Y'all! I'm cowboy Karter, and I'm updating the blog today. Look at me in my new play clothes. My Pseudo Aunt Monna (that's how I say Monica) gave me these clothes. She said that if little girls can have play clothes, then so can little boys. She's pretty cool! She plays with my barn and my fence, and that's fun!

Last weekend we had my friends Ile (some people call him Eli, but I call him Ile), Brett and Trevor over, too. Matt and Kristi came, too. Mom & Dad had fun hanging out with them. But, me... we'll just let the next few pictures prove how much fun me and Ile had. Enjoy...

I think our Moms said that we weren't supposed to jump. But... it's just so much fun!

We wanted to go outside and play in the snow, but Mom said it was too dark and cold. Who needs snow anyway?!? We just went sledding off the couch.

Tonight my mom was acting silly. See, tomorrow night we're having our pictures taken. Mom promised Dad that she would trim Brody's hair before then. So... tonight was the big night. We took our baths (which was all I really cared about), and then it was time. All she was gonna do was trim something that Dad always called Brody's hippy side burns. Then she said she had to even it all out and trim his bangs. I think he still looks like my baby brother, but Mommy said that he doesn't look like a baby anymore. Here, you guys be the judge...


All I know is that he has cool CARS jammies.

OK, Mommy said that I have to go to bed now. I just wanted to show you these cool pictures. Hope you're all having a great week!

Later Gators!
