So the other night Izzy was putting her jammies on and I said, "I see a cute little tushy." She looked at me with this mischievous little grin and said in a sing-songy little voice, "But you can't pinch it cause it's poison." So now we must beware the poisonous tushy! :)
My poor niece had to go to the E.R. yesterday because her breathing was very labored, rapid and shallow. She was congested, coughing and thoroughly miserable. Just looking at her made my heart ache. The doctors did a battery of tests and thought at first that she had pneumonia in her right lung, but then determined she had bronchilitis (baby bronchitis). They are going to check her oxygen levels again around lunch time to decide whether or not she can go home. My poor Abby baby. We have been praying hard for her, and her mommy and daddy.
Pumpkin Farm: This is so late, but here are the pictures from the pumpkin farm we took the girls to. The girls loved this little miniature pony.
They both got to pet it, though Abby wasn't really too sure about it so I had to help her.
Izzy loved the goats. She especially like the baby one and kept petting it. Abby didn't really want her mommy, she just wanted her Auntie Liz and her cousin Izzy; which was okay with Sarah because it freed her up to take pictures.
I love Abby's deer-in-the-headlights look here. :)
Izzy always wanted to rest her hands in the cut-outs. She didn't really get the whole concept of pretending that your face is the face of the figure. But she still looked way cute.
I love Sarah's huge cheese!
The girls looked so cute walking around while holding hands.
There was this shed that they called the grain house and it was filled with corn kernels. Izzy loved scooping them up and dumping them in the buckets, wheelbarrows, and toy trucks.
Izzy liked pretending to drive the wooden tractor and train.
The baby sheep were so cute. Our favorite is the one below, sleeping while standing, now that's tired.
The girls loved all the pumpkins. It was really cold, but they were very good about posing for pictures.
Halloween: If you can't tell, Tony was Billy Mays for Halloween. Abby was a duck, because she is OBSESSED with them.
Sarah was a tourist.
I was a Greek Goddess.
Clay was a Cowboy with an inflatable horse; which Abby wasn't too sure about.
And my beautiful Izzy was Princess Snow White.
Family Time: I absolutely LOVE this picture of Abby and me. She loves me to read books to her and anytime I come to visit she always brings me a book. No one does story time like Auntie Liz.
Abby and Izzy like to watch football with their daddy's. This is a cute picture of the girls sitting on Clay's lap watching football.
This is the crazy Kissel family. We like to be goofy, if you couldn't tell. :)
Izzy always comes up with funny ways of saying things. She has a Raggedy Ann doll, which she loves dearly, and she call it her Raggery Ann doll. She and Clay were playing a game with some cars yesterday. They were sitting on the floor and they each had a car that they would roll to each other trying to crash them together in the process, and anytime the two cars would collide Izzy would say, "Look, they Kasploded!" It was so funny and cute, she had us all cracking up.
Izzy also loves going to the Navy Exchange with her Grandma and Papa, and every time they go there, she wants to get a slice of pizza at the food court. But what we all love most about her little trips there is they way she says where she is going. According to her they go to the Navy Eshange. Cute isn't it. :)
So we have been sick here at the Kissel household. I have been sick for almost a week now (yes, I am finally going to make a doctors appt. I've been a little busy taking care of one very sick little girl.) Izzy was sick for three days last week, then got a little better, then yesterday she said her ears hurt. We took her to the Express Care and she has a double middle ear infection and her cold has come back. Joy oh joy. I had been feeling a little better yesterday, but today, I feel like utter dog poop.
This is a very cute picture of Izzy with her Aunt Sarah and cousin Abby. This is before we all got sick. Izzy just adores Abby, and Abby wants to be just like Izzy, she tries to do everything Izzy does, and Izzy tries to help her, sometimes a little too much.
Izzy is an expert at finding mushrooms. These two were actually really little ones that she discovered.
She like this one because it is a pinkie-orange color.
This mushroom was huge and lopsided.
And this mushroom was just really bizarre looking. It almost looks like an exploded scoop of ice cream.
I finally decided to change my background, since it is long past Spring. So I got this really cute pumpkin background for fall. As you can see I am trying to be better at keeping my blog up to date, so all of you might be getting more frequent emails from me. My dad is going to get Izzy her own little camera (one of those kid touch digital ones) for Christmas so she can take pictures of the world as she sees it. I'm going to make up her own blog for her to post her pictures, she will think it is the neatest thing. :)
Izzy was so excited to go to school. She was up and ready and kept begging me to take her. I kept telling her it wasn't time to leave yet and she would just heave a big sigh and say "Okay." She helped pack her lunch and everything.
Here are some of the many mushrooms Izzy has found.
These kind of look like pancakes.
Theses mushrooms look like a pile of puke if you ask me.
Here is Izzy in the twin bed my parents got for her. The headboard used to be Sarah's and so did the matching bookshelf, and dresser that are in Izzy's room now. Izzy was simply brimming with excitement about her new big-girl bed.
I know it has been forever since I've posted anything, but I promise I'll try to keep on top of it. Anyway, my ever so enjoyable daughter comes up with the most wonderful things all the time and my mom and I like to call them Izzyisms. For example: Izzy does not eat with a fork, she eats with a fornk. She also eats, macer-oni and pepper-oni. And she used to call triplets chicklets, but now they are tricklets. And when she tells someone thank you she says anks. And according to her my dad isn't getting surgery, he's getting surgy. And when she was little everything, like the fish we had and toys or imaginary things, was a tarrip. I simply love all the fun things she comes up with, and the funny way she says things. She definately keeps us entertained.
My parents got two little rocking chairs that match the big ones on the porch for Izzy and Abby. Izzy tried out the Big Girl Potty. But she still won't use it or the little potty. Grrrrr! Here is a little snake my dad found in the yard. Izzy thought he was cute. Needless to say, she thought he was great as well. Ok, so we took Izzy to Petco and we saw the biggest dog ever there. I knew no one would believe me on how big he was so I took a picture. He looks like a husky on steroids, but he is an giant Alaskan malamute. His name is Kuma and he weighs 125 lbs. Which is nothing compared to his father who was 220 lbs. Holy cow, right!
