Icky Sicky Kids

What a crazy month we have had here. A few weeks ago Ella was struggling with a cold. Then two weeks ago she climbed on Kelly's lap and just wasn't feeling good. We took her temperature and she was at 104 and was having trouble breathing. I rushed her to the insta care where they told me they thought she had pnemonia but their x-ray machine was down so I needed to take her to a different insta care. So I loaded her in the car and drove through the horrible snow and icy roads to get her to another insta care. On my way there I called Kelly to tell him what was going on and I can hear Abby screaming in the background and Kelly informs me that Abby was playing around and pretending to do karate and fell on her wrist and it may be broken. Well to make a long story short Ella did have pneumonia and RSV and something called Metapneumo virus, we made 9 trips to the doctors that week to check oxygen levels and breathing and we spent one night at Primary Childrens hospital for observation, but now she is doing great and back to her normal happy little self. and Abby did break her wrist which is now cast in a beautiful light blue cast covered in the names of her friends. I am planning to post some pictures of her cute little arm as soon as I can. All I can say is thankgoodness for modern medicine!

Silly School Days!

It has been a really fun couple of months for school. The twins had a pirate day at preschool where they got to come to school dressed up as pirates! And then this week it was Dr. Seuss' Birthday. We are huge fans of Dr. Seuss and had a lot of fun celebrating. All three kids got to have green eggs and ham at school! The kids were invited to dress up as a character from a Dr. Seuss book for his birthday and Abby and her friend Colby planned it all out. They wanted to be thing 1 and thing 2 from The Cat in The Hat. The problem is they have blue spikey hair, so we had to put our thinking caps on and come up with some way to make it work. To make a long story short I learned to knit hats out of blue fuzzy yarn! Then the twins decided they wanted to do the same thing for preschool so we did!
