Christmas Pictures

We had our pictures made Saturday before last, dec 1st. Even with Austin under the weather we still got some really good shots, she took over 250 pics. Adam and I agreed that we thought this was our (Adam and I) best pics in a long time, but the kids have done better before (besides Alexis). It was hard to get all 3 kids to look at the camera at the same time. here are some shots to look at, you will see more later too

ahh sickness

These past two weeks have been CRAZY! all three kids were sick.
lets recap shall we

last Friday Austin started with the sniffles and a low grade fever, Madison and Alexis also started with the congestion.

Saturday Austin was looking pitiful when he did not have medication in his system. he was sneezing, coughing, running nose all the time.
Sunday they all three had it. only Austin had a fever higher than 99.

Then Monday! I needed to take them for flu shots Alexis needed her second round so i was going to get the other two's done that day. So i called and got three appointments at 1:45, 2:00 and 2:45p because Alexis woke up with a 102 fever.

We get there and they check out Austin first, he had one ear infection and that's all. Madison NOTHING only a head cold. Now to Alexis, poor baby had two BAD ear infections and upper respiratory infection. So we got a prescription for an antibiotic, and breathing treatment meds. Austin got an antibiotic.
Oh and Alexis weighs 15 lbs 8 oz, Madison 30lbs, Austin 33lbs.

so we go home

Thursday comes Alexis's fever still has not gone away. the other two are doing better. so I call the dr we get an apt to come in.
Alexis has one ear infection gone and one that is still BAD and she is sounds really bad, so they decide that she needs a stronger antibiotic via a shot and now have diagnosed her with pneumonia. We also have to come back tomorrow for another shot of the antibiotic shot and let them listen to her.

Friday back to dr for shot of antibiotic and a steroid shot.
Come back Saturday to listen to her.

We go back sat but waited a little bit but it was a long wait and we left because she was sounding better.

Only issue is that she was throwing up her solid foods when she would cough hard to get the phlem up. so Friday night she threw up at night, Saturday threw up at night, Sunday at night, and Monday night.

finally Tuesday she started getting better, only has a small cough.
PLus on top of this she just cut three teeth at one time!! Poor child!
I hope this is the last cold we have for the winter!

Xmas tree and the Grinch!

We went to see the Grinch Ice at the Gaylord. It was fun but not worth the price.

Also we put up our tree Thanksgiving weekend.

Enjoy the pics!


I forgot to post about our Thanksgiving. We stayed here (even though we wanted to go to GA too) but with money shortages and gas prices it was too hard plus we wanted to spend it with Meemaw too.

We had my mom, Jared, his parents and Matt over. Mom cooked turkey,Gravy, dressing, cake, cole slaw, and green beans. I made a ham, mash potatoes, mac and cheese, rolls, pie,deviled eggs, and squash casserole (first time ever and it was great!). It was a good day.

after our meal we went to visit Meemaw. After meemaw I stopped by to see daddy and pat. It was fun! the kids are finally not shy with him and I love that! Alexis will sit with him too.

I went Xmas shopping the day after on Black Friday at 3AM! I went Kohl's, Target, Belks, the mall, Gymboree, Carters, the children's place, toys r us.
I only got 2 or 3 things. I got a great deal on our xmas outfits. all three kids for 60 dollars! i was shocked! i got some shopping for my mom she did not go so i picked up stuff for her.

Christmas Pictures

We had our xmas pics done at the Gaylord on Saturday. We got 250 plus pics taken. I know there are going to be some real cute pics there. Even though Austin was in the beginning of being sick, between him yawning, sneezing, coughing and not looking i know we were bound to get a couple good ones. Alexis did great!

after we went to cracker barrel for lunch/dinner.

Pics to come!

Yeah for Santa! and MORE

Friday I had a big day planned.

We started with our 6 mo check up at the dentist. It went well, even Austin did good for him!

We then head to the Jump Zone for a play date with a moms group we are in. WE had a BLAST! the slides were so fast!!

Afterwards we head to the Mall to get my car aligned. So while waiting we ate lunch, looked around, shopped and SAW Santa!

Oh Santa baby!
The twins sat on his lap with no issues and told him what they wanted and all! I was testing them for Saturday because we have breakfast with Santa for POTATO.

We leave head to Snip its for our hair cuts! Even Austin did ok for him!
Madison got the best CUT ever! She looks so much older and her hair looks like it is 10 times thicker than before. Reason is her hair was so dead on top you could see through it (now we have had reg cuts but not by the right person) so she cut some length off so we could get it to grow thick and long and healthy. SO she got a cute little bob and even bows stay in !!!! I will post a pic soon!

then we stopped at Nana's to show off and I met daddy there.
I then we to shop for an outfit for pics and Adams work xmas party.

More Car Woes!

Yes again my VAN! now after having new tires, a 100 point serious inspection from Nissan a month ago or less...this happens

I went Friday to get an alignment (free) at sears and they say there is no point in doing it because i have a right front outer tire rod that is BAD! on top of that the only place you can get the part is from Nissan. You can not buy it only mechanics places can buy them. SO it will cost over 200 for Nissan to do it! This is a safety thing! What if i never would have went to get this alignment how would i have known, Nissan said my van was good!

Plus my power driver window is bad AGAIN! even worse! 90 plus tax to RESET the motor, not replace! GRRR I have only done this 2 times before!

So we are exploring options of getting the Honda Odyssey now vs later.

Our thing is if we fix this what is next??
