Pain and Snow!! February 7, 2019

 No, Max (above at day care yesterday) does not cause me pain.  I did not have any pictures from today's adventure in traveling to the pain clinic and back in this horrible weather we're having (again).
 So, I'm using pictures of my adorable grandchildren to make the page more interesting.  This is Max (now 17 months old!) having lunch at day care a couple of days ago.  
 This is Olivia (on the left) with a friend playing in the snow in Minnesota yesterday at day care/pre K school.
Olivia (who will be 5 on February 10th!) smiling for the camera at day care yesterday.  
My friend only came back from a vacation overnight Monday and I bugged her yesterday afternoon (Tuesday) to take me to Ames to get a shot (today) to relieve some of the excruciating pain I've been having with my herniated disks/spinal stenosis.
 Wyatt (who turned a year old last week already!!!) in his new 'stander' helping Gramps (John) with cooking last Friday.
Of course my friend said she would take me-and she had heard the weather reports!
Wyatt at his birthday party--when we realized for sure he did not feel well.... he was not a happy camper! 
Gramps holding Wyatt Tuesday after a nap while recovering from a very weird virus he was having.  Stig (the dog) was not letting Gramps get by with only giving Wyatt attention.... 
 Gramps and Wyatt reading a book.
I'm grateful for my friends (my friend's hubby ended up driving us due to the weather concerns) AND my grandchildren!
I'm also grateful for doctors who are compassionate, and for the people who cancelled their appointments for today so that I could have one of them.

Happy First Birthday Wyatt! January 30, 2019

From this little 'peanut' size when you were born...
I just put this one in because it's one of my favorites of my mom holding her newest great-grandchild!  (He was number 11, and another cousin, number 12, is due the first week of March!)
 To this little human being a year later!
 You have a smile that melts my heart.
 Bath time if fun time!
This was last weekend, when you were recovering from a tummy thing.... but you were still smiling!

 Wyatt, Olivia, Max and Allison on the morning 'after' gifts!  We were all tired!!
 Allison holding 'the boys'; her nephew, Wyatt (left) and Max.  They are a handful of adorable now, but I think they may be a handful of trouble some day soon!
Olivia, Samantha, Wyatt, Marty.  Alex is sitting on the couch and Mema (my mom) is sitting in the chair behind Marty.
A BIG thanks to Samantha and Marty for hosting the whole weekend at their big house in Des Moines!!!
