Life has changed a lot since I used to post! We moved to Houston, then back to Colorado, where we hope to stay. Health was the overriding factor in moving back, but it sure is great to be back! We really missed the mountains and the snow and our church. We’re not actually living in the mountains this time, but we’re near the foothills and have some pretty views. We got plenty of snow after moving at the end of February, and the boys loved it! I was pretty happy to see it again too. Christopher and Luke got to have their first snowball fight:

Luke got his second brace a year ago, then in November, his spine was still straight, so he got to take a break from the brace. We had another checkup a couple of weeks ago, and his spine looks perfect! The doctor said Luke is essentially cured now, and is no more or less likely to scoliosis than any other person. We don’t even have to go back for more x-rays unless there’s a concern from us or the pediatrician. So no more brace!

Luke turned 3 Sunday! We had a birthday party at a park with a nice playground. Luke loves bears, so I made him a chocolate bear cake. This Sharffenberger recipe makes amazing chocolate cake! Sharffenberger cocoa powder is a huge step up from any other cocoa powder I’ve had. I want to try making brownies with it.

I’m on WordPress.com right now, but I’m going to be moving back to a domain soon, and redesigning things. Pictures on old posts don’t currently work, but I’ll be fixing that when I get the domain up and running again.
