It was hilarious to watch her try at the doughnut dangle
Here is a picture of Kayleigh at the apple orchard. Her new friend Evan is standing next to her in the green hat. He calls Kayleigh his "girlfriend". It's cute

This week we went on a tour of an apple orchard. Kayleigh loved it, but Blake cried the whole time. He was too cold and missing his nap :(. We also had a neighborhood fall festival on Saturday that was so much fun. We had lots of activites for the kids and lots of yummy fall treats like: carmel apples, cider, homemade rootbeer,and doughnuts. I tried to take as many pictures as I could of both activites, but I had my hands full with Blake. On Sunday night daddy finally came home to our house ( Kayleigh now thinks that he lives at the hospital). We had fun just hanging our with each other and trying to be like a normal family. I will post some pictures in a bit

Thursday night Kayleigh came into our room and woke me up because she was itchy 4-5 times. Her eczema can be pretty bad, so this isn’t that uncommon for us. I was really getting to be annoyed though. On Friday morning when she woke up, I saw her leg and it looked like this.
I guess it’s hard to tell from the photo’s, but its really red and hard. I started to really worry about it because she had a mosquito bite a few weeks a go in the same spot that became infected. She did a course of antibiotics and we assumed that it got better. Apparently it didn’t. I took her into the doctor and she actually was more concerned about it than I was. It is infected by a very resilient strain of bacteria called MRSA. Probably a strain that her daddy brought home from work. The doctor gave us some really strong antibiotics, and drew a line around it with a surgical marker. If it grew any larger that the line we were suppose to take her in to the hospital. It made for one really long Friday night. We had to keep taking her temperature and it did start creeping across in one spot around 3 a.m., but after 2 doses on the meds it looked a lot better. I was so worried for her.
