Our Mini-Photo Shoot

Camera in hand (thanks Molly !) I set out to snap some photos of my mini-me's.  After all Christmas is 


I mean, next week...

No, next month...

Ok so there's really 88 days until Christmas, but I decided to get ahead of the game and prepare the Christmas cards early.  

So here's what we came out with: Enjoy!

Hope everyone has a great week!

Oh Hello Pnuemonia...

So, our sweet Kaydee June is in the hospital.

she is very upset about this

After feeling rather icky for a few days, we got in with the doctor (puking all the way).

and we ended up here:
Yes this is our hospital, we don't live in a 3rd world country.  We call it Kansas, we call it home.

After much testing & xrays she officially has pnuemonia
she is very upset about this

IV fluids and a couple antibiotics and today she's finally smiling!

of course this helps a little too:
An Apple Pie caramel apple & all the chocolate covered strawberries they have left. Don't even ask how much it cost.  I could have fed a small village for a month.

and the sweet ladies at our parish brought her up a prayer blanket:
They let her pick, and she loves it =)

The nurses here are top notch, very friendly and they share my evil sense of humor.  Mine is what keeps me from going crazy.  Really.

More test results tomorrow.  Chillin for now.  Did some mani's & pedi's, watching some tv, reading, cross words.  Whatever she wants to pass the time.

Have a great week!

A week with my mom!

I am still in shock over the entire surprise, and the fact that they pulled it off.  It was, without a doubt,one of the best surprises ever!  We had an amazing week, it's so hard when she's here for a short time, and we try and cram in as much as we can!  So much to do, so many people to visit, so little time.  I love seeing my kids with her, they love Nana SO much!  Plus, they behave much better when she's here.  They love tea parties, dressing up, playing outside, going on walks.  Oh how I wish she would just move back [hint hint mom, I know you're reading this]!
So excited to have their nana back, even if it was only for a week!

We didn't want her to leave! (Yet, apparently Carsen thinks something is super funny)
Nana with the girls =)

Sisters!  My mom & my 3 beautiful aunts =)

They make me smile =)

My mom & my Aunt Cindy

One last "game day" tea party!

We went shopping and found her a GORGEOUS dress for my brothers wedding next year. 

We also went to sonic every single day for happy hour drinks.  It's just those little moments, I really enjoyed her company all week.  She's gone now, and it seems she took the heat back with her.  I am totally loving the current weather pattern and the fact that I had to dig out sweaters & jackets for the drive to school!  Amen for my heated seats =)  All this sweater, and heater business has me hungry for chili.  So, excuse me while I go stock up on all that good stuff!

Have a great week!  Call your mom & tell her you love her, I sure do LOVE mine!
Oh, AND, we have a new little cheerleader in the house!  Congrats beautiful girl! You worked hard, kept a good attitude and made the team! We are SO proud of you!
