There is SO much to say and I FINALLY uploaded my pictures so there's SO many pictures to share. I'll start with the drama and then move onto the fun stuff!!!
SO...I think that Lilee sleeping through the night was a fluke...here's why!! On Tuesday, after sleeping from 9-9...Lilee went to bed about 11am for a nap. SHE DIDN'T WAKE UP UNTIL AFTER 3!! She slept for close to 5 hours and when she did finally wake...the poor thing had a temperature of 103.5*...yowza!! We called the dr. who MIRACULOUSLY got us in right away. After no signs as to what was causing the temp, the dr. decided to check for a Urinary Tract Infection(UTI). They stuck a catheter in my sweet girl and it DIDN'T WORK!! Sooo, they stuck a bag to her and sent her home for me to "collect" a sample and bring in the next morning. Honestly, at this point I felt AWFUL for subjecting her to that torture because I was sure she had a virus and this all seemed SO unnecessary. I KNOW the pain that comes from catheters and I just felt horrible. Well, we managed to get my sample and took it to the dr. yesterday morning. They took it back, did a test, came out and said, "it's POSITIVE"! My poor child!! SO, that was that. She had been spiking a fever all day, so I was giving her alternating doses of Tylenol and Motrin to keep it down. After a busy day we got home about 8 pm and she was SCREAMING and looked awful and was just on fire! We gave her the prescribed antibiotics, gave her some Motrin for the fever, and took it to see where we were at...105.3*...I didn't even know that was possible. I was SO worried. Dan came over and he and Seth gave her a blessing that she would be okay and her fever would go down. After that, we headed to Urgent Care and were there within the hour. Her fever had gone down CONSIDERABLY by the time we got there...the Priesthood is a WONDERFUL blessing and I am so grateful for a husband worthy to perform such wonderful blessings for his family!! They pricked her heel to test how many white blood cells she had. Normal is 10,000, she had 23,000....not good. They were worried that the infection may have gotten into her bloodstream, so they needed more blood to send for a culture. That was the worst thing I have ever experienced. My POOR child was screaming as some half-witted cannibalist (I'm exaggerating) stabbed her repeatedly for upwards of 4 minutes straight. It was truly heartbreaking and at some point I just told him to stop and almost threw up I felt so bad for her. They get their blood. THEN...they have to come in and give her a shot of the antibiotics to "jump start" the oral ones and get them going. I comment to the nurse that it can't be worse than the blood draw and she had the AUDACITY to say, "OH...this is MUCH worse...yeah, this one burns as it goes it...it's quite painful"!! HELLO?! Did I REALLY need to hear that?! She gets her shot and at this point is just exhausted, along with a very sad mommy and daddy. So, although we have been sleeping more...we are more tired...how did that happen?! Long story, LONG...we won't know anything for sure until Monday when all the cultures come back. I could go into best case, worse case...but we'll just wait until we know something more and I'll just share that!! This has been WAY too long winded as it is!!
ONTO the fun stuff...We've been busy this month. I'll post pictures with captions, rather than explain everything!!
We spent a weekend up north is Mayer with my parents at the beginning of the month. Their neighbor had this horse that seemed so friendly. We had no problems until the owner came out and informed us that he bites...that's all we had to hear to get Lilee's little sausage fingers outta there!
More from Mayer
Lilee had her first taste of spaghetti while there also.
Here she isn't so sure of it...
The end result
Keaton took two weeks of private swim lessons with a friend in our ward at church. She was great with him. He did so well and has actually even gotten better since they ended!! We're so proud of him...here are the ONLY pictures that us LAME-O parents managed to take!!
PLENTY of yard work to be done now that the grass is growing green again. Good thing we have Keat to help daddy out...although, I'm sure Seth wishes he could mow the lawn in HIS diaper...er...underwear also!!:)

Yup...nuf said! We're pretty bitter, but just hanging out till we hear the final word. We still think we're probably staying put, but holding onto a teeny bit of hope that they'll call and say we got it. I think Seth is going to call on Monday to figure out what the wait is all about. SO, cross your fingers we know SOMETHING come Monday!! Thanks for all the prayers on our behalf...even if you prayed that we'd stay...heehee...we love our AZ family!!

We still haven't heard anything about the job. Seth said his presentation went well on Thursday but he wasn't too confident about the questions they asked. Stupid UoP likes to take your smallest weaknesses and BLOW them up...so we'll see. I think we've decided that if we don't get the job, it's just Heavenly Father's way of telling us that we shouldn't be there right now. SO, that's the latest. Prayers are STILL very welcome! We'll let you all know when we hear something...hopefully sometime today!!
