Heidi's classmate, Shawn, got married in Dublin on 11/9/12 and had a reception at Ruby Hill Winery in Pleasanton. The cover band and the food were good.
Nancy and Vladimir got married on 11/17/12 in Brentwood and had a reception in Crockett.
We didn't have enough earplugs for all the kids, and Scott wasn't happy about wearing these cotton ones.
Heidi hasn't been posting much on the blog. We don't have much news about her thyroid except that the numbers seem to be improving but the physicians aren't that concerned about getting her in to biopsy. I'm always concerned when things change without much stimulus or why they appeared in the first place, but I'm no physician. I've been keeping my fix-it blog up to date but people are more interested in the kids. By the time I come home from work, we eat, maybe do piano, and then go to bed.
For my birthday (34--entering my mid thirties), I got some chocolates. I like dark chocolate, but anything beyond about 70% is too dark. Well, there was some 85% in my stash and the kids got into it. Also, my peanut M&M's began disappearing. Turns out Scott had climbed up on the sewing machine table, removed the chocolates from the high shelf and helped to eat all but the 85%. Kira and Tyler joined in, but I found pieces of the 85% all around the house. Even in the bed.
We got Tyler's report card. He did better than expected and seems to be thriving. He can memorize things easily and does well with his Spanish accent. Scott has improved his reading quite a bit and is enjoying it now.
Kira speaks the most Spanish out of the kids and can repeat short sentences. Her hair is still a mess and I want to cut it short, but Heidi was traumatized by a bad haircut from her youth. So we'll keep Kira's hair a rat nest for now.
Blakey has been real fussy for the past week. He had explosive diarrhea in which he would soil his outfits every three hours. He doesn't have it anymore, but he still cries a lot and doesn't sleep well.
Okay, that's all for now.
