Still Breathing...

...but still down with the flu. Tom and the kidlets seem to be doing well now. I am almost over it, thank heavens. It wasn't as severe as I'd anticipated, but it just hung on forever. I have some great pics of the kidlets picking out pumpkins and playing in the leaves that I will post soon. Katie has a Halloween party at her ballet studio today. She is going as a barbie witch (pink and black). Brendan will be Spock. They are both very excited. I'll be back soon!

What would I say? - Journaling Added!

The Good Grief Blog has Challenge #5 up today: "What Would You Say?". Here is my layout:





Journaling:

If I could have a conversation with you today, I know it would probably take place right here with me standing behind the swing pushing you for hours. Then I don't think I'd really want to talk as much as I'd like to just play with you all day. I'd watch you run and slide and giggle and climb and swing and laugh and roll in the grass. Then I'd cradle your sweet face in my hands, kiss your little forehead, look into your beautiful eyes, and tell you just how much I will always love you.

I'm not sure when they will be spotlighting this one so just keep checking their site. This will also give you the opportunity to read the stories behind the other layouts done for this challenge as well. But, basically, my thought was that I wouldn't want to talk, as much as I'd just like to play with him. Quincey would be almost 5 years old now, which is so hard for me to fathom . . .

Take care and God Bless!

Oink.

Yes, H1N1 (swine flu) has invaded our home. Tom was first, then Bren, then Katie...and I woke up with it this morning. The kids are rebounding well thanks to Tamiflu. My dr. should be phone my rx into the pharmacy today. I. can't. wait. I do not have time to be down like this.

I am leaving you with a few recent pics to tide you over until my return ;oD


Katie polished her own fingernails with her new markers. Lovely shade, isn't it?

Bren and Tom went to the Broncos v. Cleveland Browns game in Sept.

Tom & Sean's birthday dinner: Filet mignon, king crab, lobster, fries, roasted asparagus, saute'd mushrooms, and birthday cake!


Sean and Chloe went to the Broncos v. Dallas Cowboys game on 10/4. Chloe is Sean's girlfriend. She is Katie's pal and our new favorite person. What a sweetheart!!!!!


We got our first big snowstorm this past weekend. Brendan and Katie look heartbroken over it, don't they?!?!



Blessings to you!!! I hope to be back soon!
