Big Guys' new Haircut


Today I saw the opportunity to give Justin a haircut. I have found that while he is playing in the bath, he is preoccupied and I can cut his hair.



Here is Jamie's Family Birthday Cupcake Cake.


We made Jamie a Mardi Gras mask to wear at her party today.

We're off to the TRACK!!!!




We are heading out this weekend for a wonderful relaxing "GROWN-UP WEEKEND" with friends of ours, for the 4th year. This is a break that we all deserve. Some people do not think that a stay at home does much but let me tell you...I have been at home and running to the Dr.'s office for two weeks, with two throw up episodes (one with each kid) RSV and now double yes that's DOUBLE ear infections!!! Oh don't the drug companies love us!!! Thanks God for insurance!! In the craziness of all the sickness some stupid lady rear ended me and the kids yesterday after school. I'm still on awe that she did not receive a ticket and the police did not write up a police report... what is up with that? NO damage done to my Tahoe, but she got a huge whole in her bumper from my trailer hitch! HAHA serves her right!!!
Anyway I hope that I will be able to report winnings when we arrive back.

Sweet Justin

My sweet baby boy has "RSV" Respiratory syncytial (sin-SISH-uhl) virus. I had this when I was 8 months pregnant with Jamie (very rare for adult to get it, but maybe this makes Jamie immune to it- I wish). It is a very contagious Respiratory Virus. Justin was at the Doctors office today and was diagnosed with it. They did breathing treatments on him and sent us home with a "nebulizer" and a prescription for Albuterol. So we have to do these breathing treatments at home until Tues when we go in for a recheck. Here are some pictures of Justin getting his breathing treatment.


This is when Justin is occupied and is not thinking about what I am doing to him....like watching Disney CARS.


This is what he looks like when he remembers what I am doing to him..HAHAHA
