New Windows!

Saturday was a fantastic day...or so I've heard...Turns out I came down with a bug and spent the day in bed while Jeremy and Avery hung out with our friends and neighbors and the amazing crew from Window World.  As you can see, the windows look amazing and we've already enjoyed cleaning them as a family! 

The afternoon was a hot one for sure, but the food and fun was great for all.  Hopefully our friends and neighbors were able to check out their good work and ask some questions while spending some time with Avery.  She of course, had a blast hanging out with everyone and is very excited about her new "Avery" shirt the ladies of Window World brought for her. 

We are so excited to have them in and to hopefully see a reduction in our next electric bill!  I can't believe how bright the kitchen and front room are now with the new windows.  Needless to say we are so happy and very grateful to have had the Crew of Window World at our house this weekend. 

As far as an update on Avery...we are finished with the latest round of antibiotics for her UTI, however we have moved on to constipation.  The drugs we have her on for bladder spasm control are terrible for making kids constipated.  So far we haven't been able to get a good enough routine down to keep her comfortable so we are of course back to the fight of not eating.  Her weight has dropped since we left St Jude 4 months ago from 31 lbs down to 26 lbs.  She is looking a bit thin, so we are diligently working to get her systems regulated and her terrible eating habits back to only sort of terrible.  So far the Colace, Gummy Fiber chews, Malox and pumpkin bread are not cutting it.  As a result, this 3 year old is not nearly as pleasant as she normally is.  Hoping this week we can get it figured out. 

Jeremy and Avery fly back to Memphis on August 19th for her next MRI.  We'll see what the results are and go from there.  Please pray for radiation non sense and no tumors or necrosis.



  1. Hey Jenn! Colin suffers from terrible constipation too. We have been giving him Miralax once a day (we are "down" to half a cap per day) and it has really turned around his constipation and ability to eat. Let me know if you want more info!

  2. Your new windows certainly look lovely. So, did your electric bill go down? I sure hope so! And if it proves effective, make sure you further invest in your windows by maintaining them. This way, their life service can be lengthened, and you’ll be able to use them and enjoy their benefits for a long time.

  3. It’s a smart decision that you opted for an energy efficient windows. I hope you are now experiencing the great savings it can give on your electric bill. Anyway, did you replace all the windows in your home? You could get the whole benefit of a cheaper electric bill if you do.
