Update on Alexis

We went to the dr and in fact she does not have Chicken Pox Just a VERY bad case of hand foot and mouth. She at first thought it was until she saw the mouth and right before we got there 5 blisters popped up on her fingers. So now we have to let it run its course. Thank God its not!!

I am still going to get vaccinated just in case for the future. even though I may be immune.

The last time we got this we got it from the play area at the mall (the only place we had been that we were around that many germs)

Again we were at the play area when we got it again this time. GRRR They were out of sanitizer. I had some but i can not stop and sanitize my 18 mo when she is all over the floor and then hands go in her mouth all the time.. GRRR so frustrating!

My tumble bug!

Austin started Gymnastics today. He will go Wednesday's at 10 am. He did great! he loved it. He flipped, jumped on trampolines, did mini cartwheels, jumped,walked a balance beam and much more. it is right up his alley! He loves to flip and jump! Madison watched with me, she wanted to join in but was ok with cheering him on! She starts Dance Friday the 5th. I think once she starts she will forget about wanting to be with him doing gymnastics. I will have pics next week to show!

When it Rains....

We finally got some RAIN!

Along with rain outside came some rain inside so to speak...when it rains it pours!

Alexis has chicken pox!

we woke up to get ready to go and I noticed Alexis has CHICKEN POX! we were just at the dr on Tuesday, all three kids had allergies and we got meds for it. nothing bad!
Alexis had a diaper rash but i thought it was from her disposable diaper that the nursery at the Y put on her, she is allergic that is why i use cloth diapers. But apparently its not from that. she at the blisters in her mouth, nose, stomach, hands, feet, between her toes, bottom, genitals, and knees. She has a rash in other places. She will not eat much.

I am not sure where we got it from. We got the vaccine but all that does it lessen the symptoms if you get it, it can not guarantee you don't get it.

I on the other had have NEVER had them! of course the twins have not either. i had a blood test done when i was preg with her and it confirmed i have never had it. I have never had a vaccine either. SO i am PRAYING that i do not get it!

We go back to the Dr tomorrow for our 18m check up and now this too!

We also have Adam's Parents and grand dad in town. so that will help a lot when i take her to the Dr tomorrow.

finally uploaded pics

Here are some pics I was meaning to upload for my previous posts.

We grow things big here

here are some wild pics from our garden!

Tomatoes are coming in great and we are getting a lot of them.

My cucumbers some are great and most are bitter from too much sun.

Squash well lets just say we don't have a whole lot just a little.

Peppers are awful too much sun and darn bugs!

Have you found My voice?

I have a major allergy attack/drainage issue!
2 Thursdays ago I took the kids to the Dr for a cough and come t find out all we had was allergies and drainage. Great!

Ok The following Sunday I coughed myself to a horse straining my vocal cords. Its now Thursday and I somewhat have my voice back, it just sounds like i am really under the weather. I still have a cough and drainage.

The kids are better. Grr why can't i get 100 % better!

I could not even go to work for over a week!

I had one point where I lost it all the way, now how do you communicate with 3 year olds with no voice!??

things could be better...

Around here things are the same pretty much except one thing...we are still recovering from being under the weather..I am right now horse (sp?) after I have coughed so much that I am losing my voice...grrr what if i lose it and i can not communicate with my kids during the day. I have not lost my voice since having kids. Boy would that be hard!

I have some pics to post soon of the First Friday nights concert we went to on the square in the boro Friday. It was sponsored by our church this month. it was Christian music night. OH was it AWESOME!!

We also did some tax free shopping over the weekend for back to school (mothers day out for the kids) and fall wardrobe.

I have a prayer request for a friend of mines Mom she has been diagnosed with Breast Cancer she has had 3 rounds of chemo already. she has pretty much been good with the normal side effects. Until this weekend she had to go the ER for fever, it turns out she has a staph infection, so pray she will heal quickly. also pray for her healing as We have an AWESOME God that will heal her. she is a still working when she can so pray she has the strength to continue with that.
