Jinkies... where did the week go?? (Did ya know we watch a lot of Scooby Doo in our house?!) Actually, I know just where the week went...zooming by, generally out of control.
Let's see, the last post was Monday, right? Well, Tuesday started off a fabulous day. Kids and I got up relatively early, and went to the almighty Starbucks for some hot chocolate and treats before heading to the movie theater to catch "Diary of a Wimpy Kid." (J's school sells cheap tix for the summer series second run shows!) We enjoyed the show, then decided to hit Target for a few party decorations for Miss A's celebration Saturday. We even decided the Target cafeteria would be a fine spot to stop and have some lunch. Sounds pretty good, right? Well, it was, till we got home. Actually, it was more like 4 or so when A woke from her nap. She said her head hurt and her tummy hurt, so I took her temp just to see--102! Got her meds, she spent the next two days sleeping off and on while we kept the temp to a minimum. I was pretty sure it was just her teeth until about 3:30 am on Thursday. I hear a sobbing call for "Mommy" and run to see what's wrong. "I up-chucked in my bed!" She was more upset about the bed than the vomit itself, I think! It continued for another couple of hours. She was pretty much back to her usual self by Friday morning, so I headed out to finish the birthday party shopping. I came home with pizza for the family and asked Paul where J was... "He's upstairs. Said he was tired and needed a nap." My boy does NOT nap anymore. So, of course, I run up, take the temp, and yep, 102... *sigh*
Luckily the party went off pretty well. I didn't get all the pics I'd hoped to get, but seeing as how her actual bday isn't for another couple of days, I can get the posed shots then. Needless to say, it hasn't been too scrappy around here lately. Maybe when I'm done here I'll wander into my craft room and see if I'm inpired.
Here are a couple pics from the last week...
Miss A asleep on the couch, not wanting to miss anything while being sick.
Party pics! We rented a jumping castle and got more than our money's worth! If you've got space and good weather, this totally beats going to the other places to use theirs!
Way fun! I think we will definitely do it this way again!
