We had Kiera and Danthony do a nativity on Christmas eve which was highly entertaining (and required a lot of directing). Christmas day was wonderful. Being the horrible parents that we are, we didn't get anything at all for Kiera or Danthony. They each got 2 gifts from 2 various people, but nothing from us. We don't believe in giving them gifts when they have no idea what is going on! I know, I know-- horrible parents.

I was a bit late getting my christmas goodies out to my neighbors and friends this year due to being in Utah. Most of my friends have already deserted Loma Linda to go home for Christmas. But those who were fortunate enough to still be around today got to the enjoy the burnt-no-added-sodium orange rolls I made with the help of 2 sick babies clinging to my legs whining. Lucky for them. I'm sure they can sleep better tonight knowing that their heart is a little better off since there was no added salt in the burnt rolls.

Above is the cutest video ever. Watch carefully for Kiera's gag after she and Danthony do a open-mouth kiss on the mouth/nose.
They kiss all the time-- I used to try to stop/prevent it, but it is impossible. No wonder they always get eachother's illnesses!

I had to add this picture in behalf of Steve and his love of football. I'm sure he would post it if he had the time. Just goes to show that BYU is the "Lord's University".
My half Marathon (my first one)
First of all, thanks/sorry to Megan whose blog I stole this picture from.
The "marathon mommas" of our ward plus a few other friends (about 10 total) all trained this race together and we ran it today in beautiful Irvine california. It was my first big race (I know, I know-- many of you are running marathons-- my half is nothing).
I ran pretty slow, but I didn't walk. 2 hours 20 minutes.
It was fun. My goal is to do another in february and get under 2 hours. I'll leave the full-marathon running to you crazy people.

Last night I slept on the floor next to Kiera’s crib since she was vomiting/dry heaving every 5-20 minutes. All night long I kept thinking/dreaming about spiders. I once heard a statistic that the average person eats 8 spiders a year while sleeping. I kept remembering when I was about 8 years old living in England and sleeping on the floor one night. A HUGE daddy long leg spider ran up my chest and across my face. I get the heebie-jeebies just thinking about it! Anyway, after night full of cleaning up vomit, rotating towels through Kiera’s crib in an attempt to keep it dry, sleeping on the hard floor, and dreaming of spiders, I woke up to find a big nasty looking red spider about 2 feet from where I had been sleeping. I thought of taking a picture of it for the blog (squished of course since I wasn’t about to let it live long enough to get the camera), but I will spare myself having to look at it every time I check my blog.
"So we keep him for 6 more months?"
"yes-- although supposedly there is a sister interested in trying to get him, but she still hasn't even been fingerprinted so it's not very promising."

For any of you who missed out on the chance to get a really nasty version of the stomach flu from us in early november, you have a second chance: we've got the stomach flu again--complete with puking fussy babies with diarrhea and diaper rashes. Come and get it.
Steve is a first year in Loma Linda University Dental school and is therefore barely home. When he is not studying, he is being a varsity scout coach for the 14 year old boys of our ward. Kiear and I steal a few moments of his time occasionally and make him play with us, but for the most part, he studies dilligently.
I (Cambrie) and currently a mommy to our Kiera, and also to Danthony, our foster son. Caring for 2 busy babies can be a little crazy at times, but it actually makes it easier in ways to have 2 than just 1. (And if I have time to blog than it can't be THAT busy-- right?) I am also SLOWLY getting my BSN in nursing online from both Chaffey college and BYUI. I enjoy running, and plan on running a half marathon this saturday morning. I'm part of a babysitting co-op, and I enjoy inviting people over to play with us.
Kiera one year old and cute as can be. She is walking, can say "mama" and "dada" on command, as well as tell you what a fishy says. She is understanding more and more each day including blankie, outside, eat, milk, Danthony, ducky, show, baby, ball, and kisses. She has also recently learned how to do the signlanguage for "milk" and "eat" from watching her favorite "show" Baby Signing Time. Kiera is VERY attached to her blankie and is also very fond of her "baby" she got for her birthday.
