I know what it is!!

Madie's rash is much worse today. We believe she has Fifth's Disease. She is not contagious anymore so she will have to go back to school tomorrow looking like this. I talked to a skin doctor in my ward today and he told me that she should be fine to go back. This rash could last up to 14 days!! Poor little thing. She feels fine, she just looks really RED!

Here are some pics I took of Brayden last week when he tried to walk..

My sick Madie!!

Last night Madie had a really pink cheek that was warm. It looked like she put a ton of blush on it so we just left it alone. This morning she woke up and had TWO really pink cheeks and a giant rash all over her body. We are pretty sure it's viral since she has not felt well since yesterday morning. Today I let her stay home with me and she pretty much acted normal so I'm probably going to send her to school in the morning if the rash is gone.

On another note......... can I tell you how sore I am today?? I started working out at the YMCA yesterday and went again today. I can totally feel it working!! I did upper body yesterday and lower body today with abs both days. I love feeling sore because I know that something is working but I do not like being so sore that I can't lift my arms. Bitter sweet!

Got done list!!

About a year ago I decided to start posting a "got done" list instead of a "to do" list. Well, I just wanted to share all that I have "got done" today and it is only 2pm! I still have 2 hours until the kids get home and I am just about to put the boys down for a nap.

*Got up, got dressed
*Fed the kids
*Got the boys dressed and ready for the day
*Got the girls off to school
*Went to the YMCA and worked out for an hour!!!
*Came home and have done 3 loads of dished in the dishwasher (I kind of took the weekend off! :) )
*Cleaned the playroom
*Picked up the dining room
*Picked up the living room
*Broke a video tape (which I'm not too happy about!)
*I've also washed 4 loads of laundry and have put away half of it!

Okay, I still have a lot more to do but, WOW, I feel like I've done a lot!! I just got a new membership to the YMCA this morning so hopefully getting up early to work out will help me get more done during the day while taking off those 20 extra baby pounds.

Here are some pics for the day. ENJOY!

Torture Thommy Day!

Okay, really, we are not "torturing" Thomas but it really felt like it by his reaction. He just does not like getting his hair cut. He got some hair on his tongue so he just kept sticking it out the whole time while screaming at the top of his lungs.

Happy Sunday!

Today we drove for an hour to meet in a highschool for our Stake Conference. We had Elder Webb there with us, a member of the Seventy. It was a very uplifting meeting and we feel very blessed to hear the speakers today. I took a few notes and wrote down some things in my journal that I need to work on. One of them is less time on the computer, but blogs don't count! I'm going to try to get up earlier in them morning and get some things done before the kids get up and then go to bed a little bit earlier.

For Valentine's Day we got a new bed for our master bedroom. It is very comfy.

Happy Valentine's Day!!

We have many traditions in our house and one of my favorites is celebrating Valentine's Day. The children get goodies from the Red Baron, who they know is me, and we have a "pink" breakfast. This morning we had strawberries, strawberry milk, pink cherrios, donuts with pink sprinkles, bagels & pink creamcheese. It was a fun morning.

I hope you all have a day filled with love.

President Gordon B. Hinckley

I got this video off my fried Eliza's blog. I thought it was very appropriate. My favorite picture is where he is at his sweet wife's funeral. He was such a wonderful man and prophet and I know he is busy doing the Lord's work on the other side.

Some pics for the week......

This Saturday we attended the funeral of my dear friend, Nedra. After we were able to meet with my mom and have lunch at Sizzler and stop by Robert's Crafts. Here is me and my mommy. Can you tell I'd been crying all morning??? I didn't realize my face was so red until I saw this pic.

Last night I downloaded Sesame Street on my new Ipod (that I got for my birthday) and Thomas was fascinated with it!

Brayden has been sick since Sunday afternoon with a fever and just plain grumpy. This is how I found him this morning after he ate his breakfast. He is such a cutie pie!

Very sad day

Today has been a very sad day for me and my family. We lost a dear friend last night to cancer. When I joined the LDS church the Farrington family took me in as one of their own. My 2nd mom, Nedra, passed away last night. I am flying out to Utah this week for her funeral. I am happy for Nedra to be able to be in a better place now but I am sad for all the family she left behind. She was a strength to so many. I have never met anyone who was more selfless. She always thought of everyone else's needs before her own. I have learned many things from her but the biggest one is that we should love everyone no matter where they have come from.
