Not sure what the fevers were from but I am happy to say they are GONE!! What a relief! My babies are back to themselves.
They weren't being very cooperative tonight when Mommy was trying to watch "Hero's". Love that show, it is so good. Tonight's episode was very good. Any Hero's fans out there?? I was already, early baths, homework done, jammies on, I even had the babies asleep. That didn't last - this picture was taken during a commercial break...lol. Love em to death just wanted to watch 1 show. Well, I do like Deal or No Deal but I'd chose Hero's over it. All is good my babes are worth the distraction. I'll have Laura fill me in later. Daddy had SWAT training tonight (it's suppose to be his night off) so it was me and my girls.
I have a prayer request please pray for my partner her father is going through some testing, also there is a little girl at our church I believe she is 3-4 yrs old. Her name is Kerrie Dodez she has been battling cancer and up until recently she her scans were coming back clear. Sunday her father asked for prayers through the tears he said her last scan had some concerns. Please pray for Kerrie and her family God has healed her once and he can do it again!!!

Not a fun weekend in the Hunt household. Three of our four girls were sick. Chloe came home Thursday from school and said her tummy, head and throat hurt. I thought maybe she was just tried and wanted to take a nap (she isn't allowed to take a nap on school days usually because than she can't fall asleep at bedtime) but this wasn't the case. Although, I did give in and let her lay down at 6:30pm. I figured she would probably sleep through the night and just wake up early for school. Nope!! She woke up at midnight throwing up. Poor thing. We got her into the doctor early Saturday morning...Strep Throat...again. Second time in a month. Unbelievable. She started her antibotic and is back to school today, she was pretty excited to get back. Little Riley started running a low grade fever Friday evening with a little bit of a runny nose. By Saturday she was doing much better but than it hit Rae. Rae had a temp. Sunday of 102 degrees. It was so sad she was not her little self at all. Today they seem like they are doing much better. Mom and Dad are worn out. Last night was not a good one. I think they woke up every 2 hours at the same time crying...not fun (Reagan and Riley that is, not Mommy and Daddy ;)). Hopefully this was just because they weren't feeling well. Makenna is as healthy as ever it was just her and Mommy at Church on Sunday, great service Pastor John!! Kenna loved the Simon Says.
Time for me to head out, taste test time @ Smuckers. Cornbread!! It would be much better if they would give us butter with it and maybe some chili...lol.
Have a great day all!!

The was part of the report from that event. If it hadn't been for these officers and dispatcher Knodes quick response a little girl wouldn't have her grandmother, a husband wouldn't have his wife, a son/daughter wouldn't have they're mother, a mother and father wouldn't have their daughter. They saved her life.
I always knew my husband was a hero and this is just one of the many calls that prove that. Everyday these officers go to work not knowing what will happen how they will effect someones life or if they themselves will return home. Every time they find a drunk driver they potentially saved a life not only the unknowing victim, but the driver them self. I am forever grateful to all of these officers and the dispatchers who react quickly yet calmly when someone is in need. They will always be heroes to me. I pray for their safety and that they will return home to their own families.
Sgt. Pauley and Ptl. Hunt received "life saving" awards and commendations, Ptl. Clos and Dispatcher Knode also received letters of commendations.
"You have brought honor to yourself, the department and the City of Orrville." (this quote was in the letter) Congratulations to you all you deserve it!!

I did it!! I rolled over today all by myself. Reagan may have rolled from tummy to back first but I rolled back to tummy first. I may be the "baby" but I did it and I am so proud of myself. I think my mommy and daddy are pretty proud too cause they cheer and laugh and get all excited when I do it. It's a piece of cake!! It took me less than a week to figure it out now just try to keep me on my back to change my diaper I dare you...
Daddy took this video when Mommy was at work again, he loves taping me and my big sister Reagan. I think he loves his time with us all by himself. We keep him hoppin', he's the bestest daddy in the WORLD and we love him so much!!
Rae will probably let you know when she finally gets it, she's close and I'm sure daddy will get it on video.
Well, I am sleepy have a good night everyone.

We took the girls (all four of them) to the movies Sunday, it was a great movie two thumbs up!! Sad though...not going to give anymore away. This one we will buy when it comes out on DVD.

This weekend we celebrated Kenna's birthday party with some of her very best friends. It was a great time except when I fell on my tail bone and could hardly walk the rest of the party. Not fun, I realized I am so not as cool as I use to be...lol. Poor Chloe, she brought me down and felt horrible she didn't want to hold my hand anymore she knew mommy was hurt. It was a great time, other than mine no one else had any injuries. That's a good thing. It was a lot of fun.

Just a quick comment about the below video. Daddy took this while Mommy was at work. He said they were really giggling before he got the camera. Josh would also like to apoligize if anyone gets a little motion sickness...lol ;) He had Reagan in one arm and the digital camera in the other hand.
I love it, it makes me laugh hearing them. You can hear Reagan squealing, they do love each other.

My babies are 5 months and 4 days old- I am a little late posting. It is so hard to believe the time is just going so fast. They are doing so much!! It's a lot of fun watching them learn new things. They are pushing up quite a bit on their arms when they lay on their tummies, they also get on their knees but they don't do both together...not yet. Rae and Ri love to talk and interact with each other, it's so cute!! We couldn't wait for them to realize that their best friend was with them all of the time. They love each other you can see it in their little faces they smile at each other and just talk and coo...adorable!! We love them so much, more and more everyday. They bring so much joy to our lives!! They are also starting to suck on their toys as well as their blankets, fists etc. They are increasingly more and more squirmy. They are getting around in their own ways. Not sure how much they weigh we don't go back to the doctor until next month. They sure do seem like they are growing they are almost out of their 0-3mo. clothing. I was giving them a bath last night and it hit me how much they have grown they are starting to fill out their baby tub. I can't imagine all the things they will be doing next month. We get to start rice cereal I'm excited for that but not Daddy. We are probably going to be hitting Babies R Us this weekend to pick out matching high chairs. For all my friends with multiples they give a discount for twins and more Toys R Us does too. We need all the savings we can get. I still haven't decided on the DNA test but I'll let you know if we do it. Thank you Grandma Rita and Papa Dale and Aunt Jenna the babies and big sisters spent Saturday night at Grandma's house and Mommy and Daddy got to have an early Valentine's Day. It was so nice, we slept through the night for the first time in 5 months. It was much needed and it felt great. Thanks guys we love you and thank you for taking such good care of our girls. I missed them to pieces!!

his shadow and Mama was counting down the days til spring. :0)Then whammy!! 14inches or something to that affect. The girls were so excited to go out and play, too bad they could hardly walk through it... They had a great time though. Take a look at the picture of them standing by the sidewalk -- look at how tall the snow is!! They say it has been 13 years since we've had this much snow.

We found out we were expecting twins when I was 10 weeks pregnant. An early ultrasound was done because the doctor couldn't find the babies heart beat. One stroke of the wand and there THEY where. They were in separate sacs but according to the specialist at a much later ultrasound shared a single placenta. He was straight forward, no doubt in his mind-identical! I wanted them to be healthy first and foremost and then hoped they would be identical. The question is if they are truly identical why is it that only Reagan has a dimple?? Hmmm....well we could do a DNA test not quite as expensive as I thought or just wait and see. It's hard not to see the unbelievable resemblance. What do you think?
P.S. the genetic DNA test runs $160. they mail it right to your house you swab inside the babies cheek and send it back - the results are emailed or snail mailed back in 7-10 days.

I am wanting to paint a mural (kitchen scene) on the walls in the girls play area. Maybe you can help me with my dilemma. I have no idea what color to paint the wall. Here is my concept. I want to paint the wall and paint a window above the sink, a clock above the stove and possibly a cabinet above the refrigerator. Any suggestions on the colors I should use???? I would like to paint the window frame white as well as the cabinet. I really need to decide on the wall color and curtain color. I would love to hear your input. Thanks I'll post pictures when it's complete.

We now have a lost and found box in our home...lol. Funny, huh?! Well you see we found a hat that didn't belong to anyone in our home. I made a silly comment about how we should have a lost and found, well you can't tell that to a kindergartner. She knows all about lost and found boxes there is one at her school. No prob mommy I can make us one. By the way we just figured one of our neighborhood friends left it behind.
