Things are going REALLY great!! It is still snowing in Utah.. We are getting really sick of it! The kids are all so excited about our family vacation and are counting down the days. I am getting very excited about this book. WE got a mock up from the publisher the other day. I cried like a baby, because I have worked so hard on this project. The girls were so excited to see their faces on the cover. There are also a lot of never seen pictures in the book, some I had forgotten I had. We are in the mist of filming the TLC special right now. They are getting some really cute and funny shots of the kids. The TLC crew is very good to work with and my kids enjoy being around them. All I have today is just really good news!! THINGS ARE REALLY GOING WELL!!

Maliyah has lost 3 of her top teeth. She looks like a vampire!! Good thing she loves them!! We have another appointment for the girls "robot" legs on April 1st. I hope this appointment goes better than the other one. The weather is getting better here, so the kids play outside more. Kendra has to have more surgery, but I am going to put it off until the summer, so she doesn't have to miss school. Austin and Justin are still hard work. They have so much energy! Last night when I pulled Maliyah's tooth out, Justin held her hand. Maliyah was so cute and thanked Justin for his help. I am so excited for the release of the book and to work with Richard Paul Evans, he is a great person and his team is great too. I have been so busy lately because we are getting ready to take the kids for a vacation to California. We need to get away for awhile. We're going to Disneyland and Legoland. All we want to do is lay on the beach and just play. When we went last year the kids wanted to swim the whole time. I have been taking the kids at night swimming, while Jake has been working late. It takes Maliyah several hours to warm-up and like the pool. She is so scared of leaving me because she says she might drown. She is so funny!! Courtney's first dance competition is Saturday, bright and early, we have to be there by 7:15am. Good thing I am a morning person. I am going to take the video camera and upload some videos. She is a very good dancer.

I have been very worried about Maliyah since October. I haven't been sleeping at night, and she was up a lot as well. I took Maliyah to the doctor for her once a month doctor visit. They told me that she was only receiving 1/2 of her calories for the day. I had no idea!! It really made me mad, they know how bad Maliyah was doing and they let it slide because she was gaining a little weight. She is 7 and doesn't even weight 30 pounds, so how could that be good for her. So I got that taken care of. She is doing so much better!! She is getting around on her own and finally thriving, when I wasn't sure she was going to make it through some of the nights. What a weight off my shoulders. I am able to sleep and not worry so much about her. Life is really good right now. I have been staying really busy with the boys. They didn't have pre-school this week because the teacher's daughter was getting married. Courtney will start her dance competitions in 1 week, so she is working really hard at that. I can't wait for Courntey and I to head to St. George for a weekend in April. Just some alone time!! I know that we will be busy with dance most of the time, but I do hope there will be time to swim. It will be nice to have a break from the kids, Courtney needs a break too. Kendra is working very hard on her crutches. We are starting the filming of the TLC special at the end of March, it will air in June. But that can always change. Some friends of our just lost their conjoined twin daughters. So our hearts and prayers goes out to them. There are more conjoin twins that die, than are ever separated. Our girls are Miracles and we are better because of them.
