Chuck E Cheese

Addi had a great time at Chuck E Cheese for her birthday. She loved all her gifts and playing the games and even got to sing and dance with Chuck E Cheese. So very worth it!

Payton's Turn

This last week has been exhausting. Last Wednesday we ended up taking Addi to the doctor to find out that she had the flu. On Saturday she started feeling better and Payton started feeling badly. Since Saturday Payton has had a fever on and off and has been wheezing. We thought that maybe she was just getting Addi's flu, but her symptoms kept changing. I finally left work halfway through the day and took her to the doctor. She has double ear infections and an upper respiratory infection. They gave her a steroid injection, amoxicillin and a prescription night-time cough medicine. Hopefully we will be able to get to a point where we can have a kitchen counter free of medicine and finally go out.

My Little Baker

Addi came home on Friday and said she is going to be a 'person who makes bread' when she grows up. I explained to her that it was called a baker and that a baker also makes cakes. She thinks that is a good idea, but wanted me to show her how to make bread. I know using the bread maker is cheating, but it satisfied her and I am a little too busy usually to make it by hand. We made a loaf of white bread when we got home today and tried a slice. It actually turned out yummy.

Snow Angels

Les took the girls outside tonight and showed them how to make snow angels and then Les and Addi made a snowman while Payton ate her sucker in the house. They are so much fun.

Birthday Party

My cousin Ashley's daughter Alyssa had her birthday party a few weeks ago and I have to share the cute photos of the girls from the party. They did a Spongebob Squarepants party and I was so impressed. She is the best hostess I know. She was even up half the night decorating Spongebob Squarepants sugar cookies complete with eyelashes. They were so cute and so tasty. We had a ton of fun.

So Sick

All four of the members of our darling little family are sick! We were fine on Friday, but woke up sick on Saturday. Les started getting it later on Saturday night. The girls both have it and Payton has had a hard time sleeping and has been needing mommy a little more than usual. I can't believe how many other people I know have it. I tried to go to work for only a couple hours Monday since we were all sick, but got stuck staying for the day, so Tuesday the girls and I took a sick day. For the first half of the day we lounged around and watched cartoons in our pajamas wrapped in our blankets. Then we did laundry and dishes. We made cookies together and while Payton took a nap Addi and I played Chinese Checkers. They were so good considering we were so sick that we used half a box of tissues in just that one day. What started out to be a horrible day turned into a fantastic day at home with my girls. Poor Les came home with hardly any voice left. He is still that way. He is a trooper though and as long as I am willing to stay at home with the girls when they need one of us he is happy to be at work. How nice is that?!?
