Life Lately...

Life has been pretty chaotic lately..

We are just about done with our 1st week of Christmas Break. I feel like I am about to burst from being inside all week, minus dr visits and christmas.

Reagan's Strep Throat turned into Bronchitis. Poor thing has been sick for half of her vacation. Her fever had gotten up to 103.7 and it finally broke on wednesday. Her voice is still gone and she sounds so different when she talks. The runny nose has set in and i am so grossed out! Allen is in the beginning stages.. Nasty runny nose and cough. His fever has stayed at a 101-102.  Thank goodness DJ hasn't caught the nastiness. He has been coughing but I have been using his inhaler and nebulizer, so he is doing better. All three kids have been using their nebulizer and inhalers so they can actually breathe.

Today they are getting all of their energy back and I feel like a broken record.. Get Down! Don't Touch That. Keep your hands and feet to yourself! Quit Fighting. Stop Running in the House. Plus its too cold for them to play outside so they are on rampages.. I can barely keep the house clean with their little toy tornadoes...

So for now, they are laying down watching Despicable Me and arguing over blankets...

Surrogacy Update will be on the blog later today :)

Merry Christmas...

“Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”  Luke 2.11-14

Wait, What?

I can't believe that christmas is in 2 days.. Where has this year gone?

Both kids had Christmas Parties at school and Allen and I were able to hang at Reagan's party! They had a Pancake Breakfast with Sausage & Fruit! My dad met us there and Reagan loved that Papa went to her school party! I also made Reindeer Food for all of the kids in Reagan's class :)

Friday night Reagan was up all night coughing and crying :( She woke up yesterday morning with a 102.8 fever and was not feeling well at all. All she wanted to do was sleep. I called our Ped's on call # and was able to get her in to see a dr in a different office. When we got there, she kept falling asleep while we waited. When we got into the room, her fever went up to 103.5. Sister was not feeling good at all. They did a Strep Culture on her and it was positive. So she gets to spend christmas with strep :( When we got home, I gave her some meds and then it was back to sleep. I love her cuddles, I just wish she wasn't so sick.

Sister is feeling a little better today. She was actually up and walking around today. Big Bro is starting to cough now.. Hopefully it doesn't get as bad as Sisters! I would like for this vacation to be free of any sick children!

I finally got all of my christmas shopping done. All in one trip! Wahoo! I am ready for all of this madness to be over. We took Allen to go see Santa on tuesday and he just about shit his pants!! He talks about santa all the time and for him to actually see him in person was amazing! Its like he was starstruck! He did NOT want to get off of santas lap! He wanted to stay the whole afternoon with him. After we saw santa, he got to play at the play area in the mall.

Hope everyone has an amazing Christmas!!!

Kid Clothes!

I love, love, love shopping for the kids! All of their clothes are so cute!

Just thought I would share a few of the outfits the kids are going to be getting for Christmas {from papa :)}

For Christmas, I picked out some adorable pants & matching tops for Miss. Reagan...

I am in love with the corals/pinks/greens for Reagan! She is so petite and looks too cute in her skinny's! She loves colorful pants too! These will go perfect with her flats or boots that her Gramma got her!

Now for the boys!!!

My dad thought I was absolutely crazy for getting the boys a set of matching pants/tops. I thought it would be cute! hahaha but here are a few items that I picked out for DJ :)

I have seen a lot of kids at DJ's school wearing colored jeans and DJ has always asked for a pair.. So I got these blue jeans for both DJ & Allen! My dad thinks DJ will hate them, but I know he will love them!

Mr. Allen got a lot of the same pants :) I love all of the boy clothing now! I remember when I first had DJ, there were very little to choose from for boys..

Oh I cant wait for christmas morning!!!! They are also getting a few fun toys too!

Don't forget to enter the Personalized Stamped Jewelry Giveaway!! It ends FRIDAY!!!
