What a week!!!

It all started last Sunday when we were at my parents house and Porter all of a sudden was just laying there, and before we knew it he was throwing up. We find out on Monday that he has Strep...YUCK. Along with the strep one of the side effects was a NASTY eye infection that had us up at Primary Children's on Tuesday in a blizzard. Follow up visit to the pediatrician on Wednesday. An ok day on Thursday. A wonderful Thursday night with Jason' s parents coming home from there 3 year mission. And then as I go and wake Ellery up today (Friday) at 10:00 in the morning to see that she has thrown up all over herself. Back to the pediatrician to find out NO strep...thank goodness. Too bad she isn't keeping much liquid down and now we have to make sure she does not get dehydrated...... OH and all of this without having my own car and relying on my WONDERFUL family to get me everywhere!!!

Long story short Jason is coming home early tonight and I am running AWAY.....I think the mall is calling. Cross your fingers for us that we can have an OK weekend!

Happy Birthday

Jason wasn't planning on being home until super late(as usual) on his birthday. But surprisingly he got home at an okay time. I kept the kids up until he got home. They were so excited to see Daddy on his birthday (hide and say surprise!) and give him his card. We were planning on celebrating his birthday on Sunday since who knows how late he gets home these days. So when he got home the kids insisted they sing and Jason blow out some candles. Good thing I just finished baking some banana bread.
For his birthday Jason talked me into getting him an Xbox...that he has already been using since he got it this weekend. So since there was nothing really to open. I made him this candy bar poster with all his favorite treats!

(I had to fudge on some of the treats, if you look closely it DOES make sense, I had to circle some words!)
Once we sang to Jason we put the kids to bed. We ordered some yummy Chinese take out and afterward we enjoyed this...
The aftermath. This cookie skillet has been one of the best purchases EVER! YUMMO!
Happy birthday babe, you are my FAVORITE!!
