Day 5- Diagnose- The Flu- It sucks!

My poor baby has the Flu, it sucks! I hate when the kids are sick. Carson has ran a high fever since Sunday. I took him in Tuesday and they did a strep test and a flu test both came back negative. Now its Thursday and hes still running a 102.8-103.6. The Doctors office called this morning to tell me the strep was negative, and I told them he was still running a high fever and now coughing, and having diarrhea. No Fun!

So they want to see him, now we get to see Dr. Kaufman- The best Doctor. I absolutely love her, and so does Carson. She listens to his chest for awhile, and doesn't hear anything abnormal. I asked her about the Flu test coming back negative and she said the test are accurate about 50% of the time. Thats insane to me, then why in the hell do they do them if they aren't accurate.
But with it being a holiday weekend she gives me orders for a chest x-ray in case he gets worse. Diagnose more than likely the Seasonal Flu but could be the H1N1. 

None of the kids have ever been this sick, and it just sucks!



New Years Resolutions-

Do you make them?

My resolution is not to make a resolution.
 Why wait till the New Year to make a change that more than likely you aren't going to follow through with. If you really wanted to make a change you don't need to start January 1st, do you? How many people do you think actually follow through with their list? I'm not expert but probably very few.

Hope you have a Safe & Happy New Year-



I'm glad its over, it came quick atleast to me it did. No stress this year. The kids loved all they got. Carly especially loved her cute pink scooter, and the Zhu Zhu pets.  Cain loved his scooter and Toy Story toys too. They rode them around the house all day.  Carson went crazy over the Buzz in the box, and Toy Story Legos. And Camlin liked the Block, I actually got that when Carson was little and all the kids got to love that big block. I can't even remember the name of it. Hmmm...

It was so nice not to have to worry about lunch, dinner. I made my breakfast casserole and Whole Wheat chocolate muffins for Bfast. And for lunch we had Chick Fil A tenders. Scott's parents got a tray, and we had fruit and the vegetable tray leftover from Christmas Eve, and on top of that Belinda gave us about 15 Subway sandwiches, pasta, key lime pie. We had plenty. My mom & Ethan came over and Scott's parents were down it was a nice Christmas where we didn't have to run from place to place.

Like my bed head?


Nanny got warm PJs!!

Pawpaw got a new pic for his office.

Nanny loved the Legos and we know what to get her next year.

The attack of the raccoons-

Pawpaw we will get you a Princess Snugglie for your birthday :)

My mom building Legos w/ Carly

Pawpaw stayed very busy. I don't think Scott or I put together anything.

But now its over I have some returning to do. Buzz Lightyears wing broke on day two, White Zhu Zhu pet stopped working day one, some transformers that are going back the kids got plenty and well they are just too difficult to put together w/o breaking apart. The Cars racetrack falls apart- gotta get the receipt from Nanny & Pawpaw so Cain can get something else. I think thats it. Not bad.

The shirt I won for Camlin-

from MckMama compliments of Tiny Bit More. I think I'm going to have to order one for Carly.

Here's her shop:

Dr. Sears Vitamins

I just ordered this and also these (the bundle at the bottom of the page).

If you use the code lspo or click on the Dr Sears button on the left of my blog, you can get 20% off and free shipping. Thats a good deal because if you have ever ordered from them before they only ship Fed Ex and its about $10.  So I got all of this for $59◦

What makes you happy?

Got this from Love & Logic-

What makes a truly happy person? Ah, the age-old question! Is it lots of stuff and lots of entertaining activities? Or…could it possibly be something that resides inside the person?

Truly happy people learned early in their lives how to be content whatever the circumstances.

Yes! Sincerely joyful people understand that basing one's happiness on the acquisition of material possessions and participation in exciting activities leads to ever-increasing unhappiness and stress. Because of their wisdom in this matter, they focus on finding contentment in healthy relationships.

Do you want your kids to spend their lives searching for the pot-o'-gold at the end of the rainbow? Do you want them spinning their wheels, racing toward something that doesn't exist? If you care enough to spend time reading tips from the Love and Logic Institute, I'm sure that you don't!

As early in life as possible, start teaching them that happiness comes from having loving relationships with people…rather than things.

Because of the materialistic culture we live in, I think all of us are finding this a bigger challenge than ever. That's why it's more important than ever to do two things:

•Spend loving time with our kids.

•Say "No" when they ask for lots of stuff.◦

Christmas Eve

We always go to my Uncle Nolens & Aunt Bing Bing's house for Christmas Eve. We missed most of the family though we did get to visit with my cousin Dustin and his 4 children, and my cousin Stephanie and her rude husband thats likes to tell me & children that they need hair cuts, and long hair is for girls. Yeah that gets quite annoying, thats like saying "your nose is big you need a nose job or you are fat you need to lose weight" Luckily it doesn't seem to bother my kids. Dustins wife, Jena drew my name and I got this really cute monogrammed brown picnic basket. It was really nice and something I will use, alot.
Scott's parents came down so they joined us for Christmas Eve too. The kids were super excited about Aunt Bing Bing's new inherited dog- Dottie aka 101 Dalmations to the kids.
Nannny & Pawpaw (Scotts parents) got all the kids Longaberger mugs to drink their hot chocolate in, and also the book The night before Christmas. But not just any ordinary book, this one is from Hallmark and they recorded themselves reading it, so all Scott & I had to do is turn the pages. It was really cute. And a great idea too.
After the hot chocolate the kids hung their stockings for Santa to fill. We gathered up leftover snowman cookies for Santa and leftover hot chocolate. Yum! I'm sure Santa loved that. Oh and of course the reindeer food we had to leave out.
