"Cold" front

So my house is still standing. I think the winds got up to a gusting 30. I think there may have been a power outage somewhere, but I didn't hear about it. The big news today is that I got to get my flannel and sweats out as the temperatures outside dropped to a nippy 55 degrees. I chuckle as Lil Phillip asks if it's cold enough to snow. It apparently is not cold enough for clothes as Lily refuses still to wear any, but she has conceded to the temp slightly and is covered with a blanket. Bella has a swim cover up on with the hood up. I wonder how long it will be until the state issues a freezing water warning and recommends we all flush our sprinklers.

Friday afternoon, Lily crashed watching a movie in our bed and we took the opportunity to hook up her feeding tube. She didn't even move, and I even managed to wiggle a towel under her in case there was a pull up malfunction. We worried she was hitting bottom, but she never got a fever. She woke up at 10pm ready to start her day and Phil stayed up with her until the Benadryl kicked in, I mean until she naturally became tired. Yesterday she was fine and mellow, so we hung out while Phil took the big kids and Bella to the water park. She even helped me with a couple pages in her Pooh scrapbook. I hadn't realized how much Pooh has followed us around the past couple of years. I have a new picture to add, Grandma knitted(crocheted) Lily and Pooh matching beanies- just in time for the cold front. They are very cute. She now has a new record, the camo pooh hat she wore for 6 minutes- she wore the beanie for 11. Pooh on the other hand wore his all day, except when Bella stole it to wear(aka taunt Lily).

  1. Lily and Pooh look beautiful! Seems incredible that it would be so cool in Hawaii. It must feel cold enough to snow. Our thoughts and prayers are with you always - Love, Mom
