Yes-More Dog Pictures:)

Diesel LOVES Bruno! He is his best buddy. At night Diesel sleeps in Bruno's cage. He always cuddles up next to him and when they play Diesel follows Bruno around like he is attached to him! It is so freakin cute:) This time he is right on top of Bruno.

Blake and Brayden always use Bishop as a pillow. He doesn't even budge or stop snoring, I doubt he can even feel them. He is the biggest dog and baby.

So sweet!

Dinh Family Thanksgiving.

We made a day trip to San Antonio for Thanksgiving. This time we took pictures with our white and vietnamese cousins:) These guys all look like siblings instead of cousins.
Grandma and Grandpa with the wild ones.

We were missing our other Houston Dinh cousins Hana, Jonah, and Noah. Noah was born on Tuesday the 25th. Grandma and Grandpa are coming Saturday to see him and we can't wait to check him out:)

Preschool Thanksgiving Feast.

Monday Brayden had a Thanksgiving feast at school. The class washed the fruits and veggies and helped make the butter. Brayden ran to meet us.

Grandmother always calls him a turkey, so the headband was perfect:)

Vegetarian-not by choice:)

Brayden's first trophy.

Soccer season is over. Brayden had his last game Saturday. His team had cupcakes and passed out trophies before their game. He was so excited to get a trophy. Bailey and Brice have a lot of trophies and he was glad to finally have one himself!
Coach Sid was asking who had fun playing soccer and all their hands went up.

The big moment.

Showing off.

Brayden and Dylan.

Nixan, Kade, and Blake.

Nixan is my sister's(Breanna) oldest daughter, and Kade is my brother's (Brock) son. He was born October 3rd and is more special than all my neices and nephews because his birthday is 3 days before mine! I guess I should just get to keep him:) Blake would love that! We are all baby hogs in my family and it is nice to know Blake fits right in. She always wanted to hold him, and she even helped me give him a bath.

Great Grands visit!

I loved seeing my grandparents in San Antonio. I wish our visit could have been longer. We decided to try and take a picture of all the cousins together with the great grands:) Can't you tell how much fun that was! I am posting all of the attempts we took, there were more. Notice all the ones where Blake is scratching her eczema, above it's her leg. Taite is holding Dakota so maybe she won't cry.
Here she is scratching her hand and Taite is still screaming.

No scratching and no Taite!

Both legs here:) Taite still crying:)

More allergies for Blake:(

We went to San Antonio on November 12th thru the 16th to see my grandparents and on the drive down the doctor called to let me know that milk and corn showed up positive as well. So no dairy and her favorite veggie, corn. Now it is even harder to find food for her. Here she is eating turkey slices while I shop for things she can eat.

Answer- Brittany Dinh

Question-Who is the worst mother? Blake had her allergy test last week. It was a 2 day process and not a whole lot of fun. When she was a baby she had the blood test done and was allergic to wheat, eggs, and peanuts. The allergist in San Antonio told us to cut out wheat if it was in the first 3 ingredients, and no eggs, but if it was used in the ingredients,(like pancakes etc.) it was o.k. She got tested 6 months later and her results were the same. They can usually outgrow some allergies. Well her skin tests showed that she is allergic to dogs, cats, all types of grass, house dust, and ragweed. She could only be tested for 24 things because of her age. Food allergies are Wheat, Eggs, Soy, Peanuts, and Tree nuts. Did I mention she also has asthma?? Her Eczema has been really bad since birth. I mean she has head to toe eczema, in places you wouldn't think possible. We always thought it just went along with her asthma. Well come to find out it is mainly from her allergies, not only in the air, but stuff we have been feeding her. The above picture is of her eczema on her neck and face that is actually looking a lot better. So sad.
The worst thing is that she has to avoid food with any wheat, soy ,and nuts, and no eggs. I did not realize all the foods that have wheat and soy. It is impossible to find anything she can eat. She also will start wearing a very fashionable medical alert bracelet stating her asthma and food allergies and that she carries an epi-pen! Yes, she has to have an epi-pen with her at all times. My poor baby. There is practically nothing she can eat! She is also on a bunch of medicines and steroids right now. She can't get shots until she is 6. Something else exciting to look forward to!


I'm a little late posting Halloween pictures:) Here they are finally.
