Crafts with Grandma Ellsworth

While Grandma Ellsworth was up visiting us the girls really wanted to do some crafts and so Grandma Ellsworth took the girls out to the craft store and ended up getting a bunch of fun crafts. They made Easter chocolate suckers (which I didn't get a picture of). They also made flower pots and a stepping stone.
Grandma Ellsworth really loved the flower pots that the girls made their great grandparents that she wanted one for herself.

This past Easter we were able to have my mom here to celebrate it with us. It was a lot of fun having her here and helping with Troy and the girls as well as everything else!

Easter morning Allison woke up so excited to go find all the eggs and her basket. She was a great big sister and helped Abbigail and Troy find their baskets. Allison finding her basket. The Easter Bunny hides her basket in the same spot every year...

It was a wonderful Easter.

I'm so grateful to have such a wonderful mother in law. She's always been there for Kyle and I and our little family whenever we've needed her! I love and appreicate her so much! Thank you Debra for everything you do for me and my family! I love you!


The day after we got home we took Troy in to get his Bili rubin tests done. After we got done with the blood tests we ended up going out to get some newborn clothes as we didn't have enough for him. While there I got a call from our doctors office stating that Troy's bili levels were really high and that he would need to be placed under the lights. They instructed us to go home and wait for the hospital to bring a bili bed and bili blanket for him. The doctors office told us that Troy needed to stay under the lights 24/7 in order for his bili level to come down. If it didn't go down they said that they would need to hospitalize him.. I've never had a baby with such high bili levels that honestly it scared me a bit so we rushed home and did everything the doctors office instructed. He stayed in the bili bed and bili blanket from Thursday to Monday. We tested him on Tuesday and said that it was going down a bit and by Monday they said that it had gone down to a 9.5 and as long as it was under a 10 we could take him off the lights.. I hated the lights.. it's so sad not to be able to hold your baby and snuggle with him but I'm very grateful that it was only for those few days.

Welcome Home

Troy and I came home Tuesday April 12 right around 1:00 Pm. Kyle came to pick us up from the hospital and bring us home! The girls were at home with Grandma Kelley. When we got to the house the girls came running out to greet us. Allison brought us inside to show us all the gifts and fun things they've been up to the past few days with Grandma.
