Update and Thanksgiving projects

Oh the joys of the ups and downs. Well... I took the boys to the doctors on Monday. The strep has cleared up in both of them, buttttttt.... Colby now has an ear infection (yes that is an ear infection that occurred while ON antibiotics) and his wheezing warranted a dose of steroids daily. Blake now has pneumonia. Yeppers you read that right.

So needless to say we've been doing a lot of staying inside lately. This weekend felt like a week. On Sunday I said to Richard, can you believe it was only a week since Halloween... are you sure that wasn't like a month ago? We are all going a bit stir crazy. We were out from 9-1 on Monday, but that was at the doctors, getting chest x-rays, back to the doctors, then to the grocery store to fill 4 prescriptions. Today we only went out for about 45 minutes. We headed up to Blake's preschool so he could be in the class picture and the ran to get gas for my car.

Both boys slept through the night, for the most part. Colby is having a hard time falling asleep because of the wheezing and coughs and coughs. He also woke up really early this morning because of the same thing. Today he decided that for most of the day he needed to be held. Ummm, you weigh 28 lbs. 28 lb's of dead weight is heavy!

Oh well... we did get a few cute projects done the last few days so I thought I'd share them with you.

The body is their foot. I cut a bunch of feathers, beak, waddler, and eyes and let them glue as they wanted

Color the top of the paper bag (something they weren't really in the mood to do), stuff, tie off, cut the top into strips. the head is their foot, and again I cut eyes, a beak and a waddle

We painted paper, cut into leaf shapes, wrote on them what the boys are thankful for:

Blake was thankful for: playing at the playground, going to the Y, Mommy and Colby

Colby was thankful for: Blake, Daddy, Abby and our home

Hope you are thankful for a healthy family. Can you believe in 2 days Blake will be 4? Lets just hope he is well enough to go to school to celebrate!
