Happy New Year!!! Welcome to 2007! We rang in the new year the same way most families do... with strep throat! We were on vacation in Gatlinburg at the time so we got to spend New Year's night sitting in an ER in the middle of nowhere... I have to say though, we were in and out with all 3 kids diagnosed with strep in under 3 hours! Talk about service! Anyway, we cut our vacation short and came back home to let the kids recoup. They ended their medication on the 5th and Tuesday night I was back at the doctor with Kass and Kam who both tested postive again. Now Kennedy is sick as well and she has an appointment tomorrow morning... 3 guesses on what is wrong with her! Kassidy is now on round 10 of antibiotics, Kameron is on round 7 or 8 and if Kennedy does indeed have strep it will be round 6 for her. I guess not having her tonsils does help a little. The appointment we made with ENT back in October is FINALLY here! Kass and Kam go in on Tuesday and hopefully they will agree that they need their tonsils out... if they don't you'll be seeing me on the 6:00 news for freaking out in a Nashville doctor office! I am just praying that they can get this done SOON especially before May! I do not need a newborn getting strep! So anyway... that's it for us lately. We had a wonderful Christmas and I have tons of pics that I will get posted soon. Hope you all are well!

Welcome to my blog where I take on day to day life with my five amazing children: Kassidy, Kameron, Kennedy, Keeghan & Kellsey, and a husband in the Military. Join us as we face issues with Down syndrome, Leukemia, Deployments, and every day life with 5 young kids! You'll be in for the ride of your life!
My name is Renee, I am 34 years old, I am married to the Army... oh wait I mean I'm married to a Soldier, my hero. Same thing right? I am a misplaced Californian who lives in Colorado by way of Tennessee. I am a mini-van driving soccer mom... I always knew I would be! I am blessed to be able to stay home with my 5 amazing kids. Kassidy: my beautiful, too smart for her own good, funny, dramatic 13 year old who is starting her teen years with grace. Kameron: My high strung, smart, artistic, creative, silly, sometimes mysterious 11 year old who loves musical theater and acting. My 8 year old diva, Kennedy: who will most often be found dancing or dreaming of Justin Bieber. She's destined for the stars! Keeghan: my crazy, funny, silly, handsome 5 year old monkey who loves to ask me a million questions all day long; and our 6 year old Ukrainian Princess Kellsey who is finding her way in the world as she battles Reactive Attachment Disorder. Our goal for her is to make sure she knows she is always loved, wherever that may take her... I'm so incredibly blessed.
