First of all an update -- I am not loving life right now. Kenyon is still in the hospital. Hopefully tomorrow (Thursday) he will be able to come home. I am anxious for him to be home but I don't want him going back so it would be better that they make sure he is all the way better. He is back to eating and taking meds orally. He seems to be doing pretty well.

Gavin and Elise both have strep. Gavin is doing so good now that he has been on antibiotics for a few days. Elise, on the other hand, is struggling. I sure hope tomorrow is better.

Nothing very productive is happening around here. While bouncing the baby on my hip and waiting for the doctor to call me back, I got HOOKED on a website that I have heard about for quite a while now. I don't know why I was so slow to check this out.
The Pioneer Woman is a great blog - whether you like photography, food, hilarious stories about raising children, interested in homeschooling, or life on a ranch. She is gorgeous and her kids are so cute. She was just named by Time as one of the top 25 blogs. It makes life on a ranch and homeschooling look VERY tempting (except that I not much of a meat or animal person). I do think there is potential for much better work ethics, family relationships, and maybe even less sickness. Anyway, happy reading. My only warning is be prepared to waste a lot of time (especially if you start reading her Black Heels to Tractor Wheels story.

And check out the Parmesan Crusted Chicken recipe. Sounds devine.

so sorry to hear about all the sickness in your family lately! hope everyone feels better soon. I also have to tell you that I discovered Ree's blog around Christmas, and i am also obsessed. She is so great! Her step by step recipes and photo instructions are amazing, plus i got totally sucked into her love story and wasted several hours over several days reading it. She makes her rancher's wife life look so glamorous. Love it. I'm glad other people are finding this too!
