2 in one day...aren't you lucky?

As I said in the previous post, it was a long week last week. Besides flying back Monday morning and going to work, we took Brianna to the doctor, because she's had a rash that we couldn't get rid of and also started wheezing a bit on Friday. Well, by the time we got her to the doctor on Tuesday, her wheezing had worsened, and she almost ended up in the hospital because her blood oxygen wasn't going up. In the end she didn't have to go to the hospital, and is doing much better now. She is on a few medications (she also had an ear infection), but is doing much better. So, like I said...long week.

So, as you can see we got Brianna her own little pool yesterday. She's a little too young to use some of the stuff, but she seemed to like it. We don't have much planned for today, probably taking Brianna back out into the pool. Well, I guess I should get some stuff done around the house. Have a great day! Love to you all!

GW Graduation

I know, I its taken me a week to get this stuff posted, but give me a was a long week. We had a great time in D.C., although it was much too short. Graduation was really nice Former President George H.W. Bush & Former First Lady Barbara Bush were the commencement speakers. Their speech was actually pretty entertaining. It was a beautiful day, and of course I got sunburned, but it was a great time anyway. There are a few pictures from graduation and some from Brianna swimming in the hotel pool, which she loved! :)

Congrats Brian on your graduation!!

Congratulations Dawn, Jim, Cameron, & Clare on the birth of your daughter (and little sister) Sophia Marie! We are so happy for you. Can't wait to see pictures!

on our way out the door....again

Hi all, this is going to be short and sweet. We are leaving for DC in 3 hours (and still need to pack), but I just wanted to let you know that there are new pictures in the May 2006 album. Hope you all have a great weekend! There should be new pictures from DC and graduation early next week. We don't fly in until Monday morning, so give me a couple of days! :) Our love to all!

new pictures....

Just wanted to let you know that there are new pictures of our cutie pie in the May 2006 album. I was playing around with my camera, thats why all the pictures are in black & white or sepia. But I really love the way the pictures look in those two settings. She is such a little angel...well most of the time :) I hope you enjoy her new pictures. Lots of love to you all!

a stroll down memory lane..

So, it was another weekend out and about for the Carroll family. Last weekend Brianna spent the weekend with Grandpa Bob & Grandma Nancy, and this weekend she got to spend some time with Grandpa Lester & Grandma Susan. I had Friday off as Alli and I had planned to travel to Knox to see our Knox Moms. We had a great time and it was so good to see them all again. We spent a lot of time in that office and we miss them all so much. So it was great to catch up and talk about old times, and it gave Alli and I a great chance to catch up, because we don't get to see each other nearly enough. Anyway, I had a great weekend hanging out with Alli, seeing our Knox Moms, and strolling around good old Galesburg. I think we need to make this an annual thing.... :) We hope everyone has a great week...our love to all!

Just a quick note to let you know I've added some pictures to the May 2006 album. I will have more to add once we get home. But hopefully these will appease the masses for the moment. Hope everyone is having a great weekend. Lots of love to you all.

another weekend in the books...

Hello All! I know its been a couple of weeks since I posted, but like always things are quite hectic. You would think now that tax season is "officially" over work would slow down, but no such luck. In fact I just got home from the office. We got back from St. Louis about 7:30ish, at which time I drove over to the office to do a bunch of filing that had been piling up for about a month now. Unfortuantely, the filing turned into me having to reorganize the cabinets, etc, etc. So, four and a half hours later I am finally home, and get to go back in a few hours...yippee. Besides that, we had a very good weekend. We were in St. Louis for a wedding of some friends of ours from Knox. The wedding was beautiful and we all (Ben & Amanda rode with us too)had a great time. We stayed with Angie, Nick, & Braden on Friday night (well it was actually Saturday morning by the time we arrived), so it was great to be able to see them for a little while. Brianna got to spend the weekend with Grandpa Bob and Grandma Nancy, and it sounds like they all had a great time as well. :) There isn't too much else to report with Bob and I. Since this is actually posting on Monday May 1, I guess I should be the first to wish Bob a very happy birthday! Brianna is getting more teeth!! Her top two front ones broke through last weekend. She has actually been really good with these two too, so we're very lucky on that. Other than that, there isn't too much new. She is still growing like crazy and will be 9 months old on Tuesday. Time sure does fly. She goes to the doctor on Wednesday, so we'll see how big she has gotten in the last 3 months. She has been picking things up like crazy. If you notice her tongue in the picture to the right, I don't know where she got that from but she has started doing that all the time now. She is such a little ham, as you can see. Still no crawling, but her legs are getting stronger, she'll stand against the couch for quite a while. I gues there isn't really any more "Brianna News". There are some new pictures in the April 2006 album, from the wedding, and of Braden, and a few of Brianna. I got a new camera for our anniversary/mother's day, so this was the first weekend I got to try it out. Hope you enjoy the pictures. OK, thats all for tonight, I should get to bed, so I can get up and get back to work! :'(

Brooks & Erin~ The wedding was beautiful...thanks again for inviting us! We hope you guys have a great time on your honeymoon!

Bob~ Happy 26th Birthday! & Happy Anniversary on the 3rd. We love you lots! :)
