Thanksgiving Blessings!!

My family and I had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I hope you all did also. I know that I gained at least 10 pounds:( Thats the down side of all the wonderful food.

I have been thinking about all that I have to be thankful for. I really have too many things to list. I'm so fortunate and blessed to be a wife and mother. To be a Christian and have the love of my savior and to live in the USA. I'm thankful for everyone that is close to me in my life and very lucky to have lots of family and friends.

Thanksgiving is a time to remember all we have and think about the less fortunate. Again I'm so very blessed and thankful for everything that I have. I'm very lucky and need to remember that each and everyday.

My little man had his tooth pulled today. It was so sad. He cried the whole time. He said he could feel everything. The dr said he could only feel pressure and not pain, but he said he could feel the pain. It was so hard on me I was crying right along with him. Usually he is very tough when there is real pain involved, its the things that are little that he normally whines about. I know he was really hurting to act the way he did.

He's still puffed up and starting to turn purple around his eye. Tomorrow it will probably look like he was in a fight. He seems to be feeling better now and slowly getting back to hisself, now that he has pain medication in his system. Hopefully he will be back to normal by Turkey Day, I would hate for him to miss all of the good food.

Emma returned to school today. She seemed to be doing really well this morning and her sores on her face looked better today. I just pray that the antibiotics work and it doesn't spread anymore. Thank you all for your prayers and support.

What a horrible day!

Today was not a good day. I spent the morning at the dr and dentist office with my kids. First off Emma has had a cold for about two weeks now. She hasn't coughed much or complained with sore throat, it has just been a very yucky runny nose. Last week she started developing some sores around her mouth and I thought they were just cold sores or fever blisters at first. Then they started spreading and getting worse looking, so I thought it could be impetigo, because Colton had that one time when he was little. I would have taken her to the dr last week but my husband said it was nothing and I was being paranoid. Well what did he know. I took her today and she has a staph infection that could quite possibly be MRSA. That is so scary to me, but having a mother and sister as nurses they reassured me that she would be okay. The dr wasn't able to culture it because none of her sore were infected and oozy anymore. But I'm supposed to bring her back if they get that way.

So that was Emma now for Colton. He started complaining last Thursday or Friday about a tooth that was hurting him. Well I didn't think it was really anything because he is losing his teeth and also getting some molars in. Plus he is a little on the dramatic side when anything hurts so I really thought he was making it worse than what it was. Well guess what! He woke up this morning looking like a chipmunk. His little cheek was swelled so much. He also complained with a headache and sore throat. I took him to the dr first to make sure it wasn't a sinus infection. The dr said no its a tooth. So then to the dentist. He said it was an absess in the tooth he had filled in June. The dentist had said then that the cavity was really deep and may cause problems in the future, but he had put a medicated filling in it and thought that would last until he lost that tooth. Well he was put on antibiotics and has to go have it pulled at 8:00 tomorrow morning at a pediatric dentist that is an hour away. That will be fun and it may be bad weather tonight so that will be just so fun trying to get there that far away.

I felt so horrible about both of them being worse than I figured and just pray that they both get better and not worse. Especially Emma's because that could be very bad. The dr said she will be okay to return to school tomorrow. Colton's is bad too, but he will be taken care of tomorrow. Please keep my babies in your prayers and me so i don't lose my mind!! Thanks.

Here is my Poor Little Chipmunk!! It looks much worse in person than this picture.

It's Winter!!!

This is what I awoke to this morning. Its just a little dusting, but its always exciting to see the first little snow of the season. Of course the kids would have been more excited if school was closed or at least late:(

Homemade Bread and Banana Muffins!!

Yummy!! Last night I made roasted chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, homemade amish bread, and banana nut muffins. It was sooo good. The bread was Amish white bread the recipe was from and it was so good and easy to make. The muffin recipe was also from the same site.
I think Travis was impressed to come home to such a good meal. The way he works he's only here Tuesday and Wednesday nights for supper, so when he is here I try to make it special. I love big comfort meals like this during the fall. But I really need to stay away from them so I can fit in my clothes:(

First Lost Tooth!!

My little man lost his first tooth. Yes he pulled it in the bathtub, which helped not get blood on anything. He was so excited. We was beginning to think he would never loose any, because he will be 8 next month. He was the only kid in his class that had not lost a tooth. Now he will go to school and show off his hole where a tooth once was.
Congratulations Colton you sure are growing up!! By the way it must have been a really good tooth, because the tooth fairy gave him two dollars!! Way to go, Colton:)
Now Emma is ready to loose a tooth!

Need Help!!

So I need a little help from you all out there in blogland:) I am going through some of my kids clothes and toys (to make room for more) and they have some nice things that I don't want to take to the Goodwill. I would like to sale the stuff on ebay, but have never sold anything on there before and need help.

I'm set up to sale and I have a paypal account. I just need to know about shipping costs and anything else that may help to know. I would really like to make a little extra money for the holidays, so any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you to all of my little bloggy friends.

Late Halloween Pictures!!

Don't you love how you can see only one eye on the old man. Creapy!!

Sorry I haven't blogged in a while. Here is the Halloween pictures of the kids. Emma was a princess of course and Colton was a creapy old man.

The other pictures are from Colton's school program. He did such a good job. I'm very proud of the sweet, caring little boy he is. He's so full of life and happy all the time. I Love Him so much. I Love Emma so much too. I'm a very lucky mommy.
