Food Will Never Be The Same Again...

So unfortunately Aspen does have Celiac Disease. I am feeling kind of overwhelmed with all that entails. I would love recipes or ideas from anyone who know someone with Celiacs.
Daren seperated his shoulder playing in a raquetball tournament. Not good timing if you know what I mean.
The babies and I are still doing well. A mother's job is never done, as they say.
I am really enjoying the nicer weather and the fresh air with the widows open.
Happy Spring Everyone!

Home away from home...

I know I have been a total slacker about posting lately. It seems like life has been pretty uneventful as of late. I guess that is a good thing. Even Aspen has the same routine pretty much every school day. We did go to Lincoln a couple of weekends ago. I hate to admit I have only been like 3 times since we have lived here. We went to the mall to look for a pair of shoes for Daren and we walked into the food court and I got so excited because right inside the door was a Panda Express. I have really missed my orange chicken while we have been in Omaha. Everytime we go to Utah or Washington I have to have a fix. I was a very happy camper. The babies seemed to like it too. They had a party after I ate. Things are going well with the pregnancy. So far everything is on track. I haven't really felt sick at all just a lot of aches and pains. I am getting old.
Aspen had to have an Endoscopy to check for Celiac's Disease, which is an intolerance to wheat, gluten, barely, etc. We don't have the results back yet but are hoping the tests are negative. Have you ever read food labels? Wheat is in like everything. I guess we wouldn't need to store as much wheat but what am I going to feed my child that already only has a diet of about 5 things? She did great for the procedure but had a hard time waking up. We were at Children's for about 5 hours. Those padded rockers they have in the corner are deceiving. They are the most uncomfortable chairs I have ever sat in. Aspen has been to Children's over 78 times not including all her therapy sessions we have had. We could have saved so much gas money if we would have just lived closer to the hospital. I think my car goes into auto pilot when we start heading for Children's.
I will try to better about posting more often. Hope you are all doing well.
