this is the little person that named her brother Toe Toe... this is also why we called her Pie, what could be sweeter than Mya mya punkin pieya? This was one of my favorite outfits, her dad bought it for her. She picked nearly every flower that she passed... she still does this.

(they were cloud gazing... a new thing for my 3 yr old)
Co'b thought it was a grand idea and wanted in on it... Molly of course goes where ever they go.
Have a great week...
(p.s. Hubby is still sore with me and my vinegar pouring (notice the big brown patch of grass) I was trying to kill ants... I had gotten bit for the last time and it was revenge!!!

Since we are home bound this holiday weekend I have been trying to put together stuff for us to do. Just take a look at these adorable apples. They have a little spin here which is just too cute.
The kids are working on simple little apple trees. Brown and green construction pieces cut in the shape of a tree trunk and the big green of a tree. They decided to draw their apples. They have been busy.
I have been making Oatmeal Raisin cookies for hours it seems. I doubled the batch (sometimes my eyes are JUST way too BIG).... and I am happy to report that the last batch is in the oven and the counters have returned to their happy clean selves.
We are having leftover potato soup for lunch that I made yesterday. It really is yummy and EASY to make. Just Google it... read a bunch and change it to your liking.
Well, the timer just went off... don't want to burn the last go 'round.

Fast forward to 3:45am, I woke up to the little guy in our bathroom (just peeing ;) I went to check on him and placed my hand on his shoulder and he was BURNING UP! I ran to get the thermometer and his temp was 103.2 !!!! We gave him Motrin and a bath. The fever broke.
Again... fast forward... 8:32am started calling doctors office... BUSY...BUSY... around 9:20am finally got through and waited a good 15mins on hold... and then was told that they were booked and the earliest would be 3:20pm. Fine.
3:20pm.... arrive... and by 4pm we were on our way to the pharmacy with a prescription for an antibiotic for the Strep throat and a prescription of Tamiflu for his flu.
That's right.... STREP THROAT AND THE FLU!!!! After a bit of running around to get both filled (Walgreen's didn't have the Tamiflu so I had to make a few calls and luckily Safeway saved the day and was able to fill it)... picked up more fever reducer... and a stop by Hi Health for more colloidal silver (that's for the rest of us)... and a few extras to make him feel loved.
Lysol has been sprayed pretty much every square footage of the house (thanks Mario), sheets washed, and I just couldn't stop... even the floor got scrubbed!!!
Say a prayer for the little guy, he looks and feels 'poor pitiful'!!!
He was to go in on Tuesday to finish up his dental work (we have waited a while for this appointment) and I am afraid that we will have to postpone the procedure until later. Oh well who cares, right?
take care.... I'm going to go and cuddle the sick patient.

It brings back memories of this little one when she was just a wee little baby.
She, like her brother, slept in our bed. I remember nursing her and feeling her warm little body snuggled against me. I remember waking to find her still snuggled close and tight around my abdomen, unlike her brother who would stop nursing and turn his head and body away to the opposite side (I had so much milk though he was probably tired of being squirt in the face)... she always stayed close and near and I marveled at the fact that she felt the most relaxed and secure near my belly.
Three years later she still likes being a bit lower than us, abdomen level.
