So Pitiful

Abigail has not been feeling well the fast few days, but today was by far the worst. I called and made her a doctor's appt this morning and it was hard waiting for the appt time to roll around because she's cried a good deal of the day and just wants to be held.
It's times like these when you realize how insignificant the laundry is, or the dirty floors. So much of the day today I've sat and held my "not feeling well at all" daughter.
The doctor's visit revealed that her cold has turned into an ear infection. So now that we have meds, she'll hopefully be better quickly. This afternoon around 4oclock she crawled into my lap and fell asleep. She slept for a good hour or so. I got up to go fix something for dinner and she followed me into the kitchen. A few minutes later, this is what I saw.
I sure hope she's feeling better tomorrow. It's hard to see your kids sick, even when it's something minor.

Scrappy Post

I'm due a scrap post and even though the 1st is just a couple of days away (and I'll have a couple of kit reveals), I do have a layout I haven't shared yet.
I actually did this layout back in January. It was for the latest round of Scrap Whispers. Now that the round is complete and we had our big reveal a week or so ago, I can share the layout.

I love this page. I think it may be my favorite page I've done all year. But I also must say that I am so glad Spring is here and we are getting some beautiful weather. I much prefer capris and flip flops, to turtlenecks and coats!

I said I'd be back with pics!

Two posts in one day! That doesn't happen often!
So since I decided we'd go to the Disney show at the last minute, I splurged and got the best seats they had left. And they were great. The girls were completely captivated.
Before we left:I had my fixed lens on my camera which doesn't allow me zoom out. Since we were in close quarters I couldn't really take pics of us in our seats, but I did manage to get these two..
In awe of the show:

And then here are a few shots from our terrific seats!

And then after all the fun:
Have a great weekend everyone!

Fun Friday!

I don't know how time goes by so fast! I really didn't mean for a whole week to pass without blogging. This is gonna be short and sweet and I'll *try* to post again with more pics.

I decided at the last minute to take the girls to the Disney LIVE show this afternoon. Once I purchased the tickets, I went ahead and told the kids. Natalie ran around the house screaming for almost a full 5 minutes. The money I spent was almost worth just that reaction. Abigail just keeps saying "I see Mickey Mouse?" After they ate lunch I told Abigail that it was nap time. It's almost an hour earlier than her usual time, but I need to go ahead and get her down, so she'd have at least a bit of a nap before time to go to the show. At first she protested, but when I told her that as soon as she got up from nap we were going to see Mickey Mouse, she literally ran to her room.

So.. we're headed to that in just a couple hours.
In the mean time here's a series of pics from last Saturday. We went to a cousin's birthday party at a place in town that has all kinds of huge inflatables.

Think she was having fun?
Until Later..

Fun in the Sun

What's that in the sky? It's actually the sun!
This afternoon turned out to be a pretty one, so instead of naps, we opted to play outside.

We live on a dead end circle at the top of a hill, so it's great for letting the kids ride around on the paved cul-de-sac. When we first went out.. instead of waiting for me to get the tricycle down to the road, Natalie decided to barrel down the driveway. She wiped out pretty much immediately and skinned up her face.

She was more worried about her hand. I was more worried about her forehead. But she recovered quickly and they had a blast.

I had this brilliant idea that I would put together the slide that she got for her birthday (yes, last Oct, and it is still in the box in the garage). I figured how hard could it be? Well for this 14 week preggo, getting over a chest cold woman, it was too much. Daddy will have to help us with that this weekend.

After playing with sticks, leaves, rocks and various other things found in the yard...

we decided to come in. (notice how she has her injured hand cradled against her.. there wasn't even anything wrong with it, but one little small piece of scraped skin) Oh.. I did a load of the girls laundry after we got in and got cleaned up. I have a nice pile of squeaky clean rocks if anybody needs them.
Wonder where those came from...

Scrapbook Sussies - March

I've let way to much time pass without blogging! I can't believe we're halfway through the month!
Here's what I did with the Sussies March Kit:

This last one was a lot of fun, and it serves several scrappy purposes. A couple of weeks ago, the challenge over at Scrap Whispers was to use the phrase "the long and short of it" in your title. I didn't know what I was gonna do, and then I had an idea to document a conversation with Natalie. I also found a great tutorial on making origami flowers that I used for a challenge over at DP. I'll post more about that later, in a separate post.

I've struggled the last 4-6 weeks when it comes to scrapping just because the 1st trimester seems to zap my creativity. But I'm about 14 weeks now and beginning to feel a lot better (if I can just shake this awful chest cold I have), so I plan to post more instead of once every couple of weeks!
