Scarlet Fever

We woke up to Drew looking like this:

Swollen & a sandpaper texture rash all over his body.
He had cold-like symptoms & 4 teeth coming in for several weeks. Usually I'm the first to take the kids to the Dr as soon as any illness appears. This time, I was proud of myself for waiting it out (his green nose was turning clear). Then he wakes up like this!

"The Mother of the Year Award goes to..." NOT ME!

Diagnosis: Scarlet Fever!
My heart dropped. I had heard the name, but couldn't remember all the details. Sounded serious! I guess it used to be, but totally treatable now w/antibiotics.
Basically it's a Strep Throat infection followed by a sandpaper type rash & fever.
Poor kiddo :(
But like most kids w/illness, he's still a pretty happy kid!

Christmas 2011

Santa's Helpers
These are precious ornament blocks the boy's preschool teacher, Tori, made of the boys
w/their baby pic & their 2yr pic.
We gave the boys an early Christmas Present (Xbox Kinect)
Yes...Ty has painted reindeer antlers & nose on from preschool. LOL
Then...a week later they got another early Christmas gift:
New Big Boy Beds!

Christmas Morning

My 3 boys surprised me one day after work with a new kitchen table.
LOVE it!
And our precious Riley is never forgotten.
This ornament was a gift from one of Riley's new angel friends Savannah and her mommy Angie.

Thanksgiving 2011

My little Indians at the Preschool Thanksgiving Feast

My first attempt at cooking the Thanksgiving Turkey was a success! Thank you Grandma Gilbert for walking me through it.
Here was her advice (mostly for my info so I can remember next time):
1. Buy 10-12 lb Turkey Breast (not whole turkey) at GFS
2. Put it in refrigerater to thaw 2 days before cooking
3. Wash it off w/water
4. Put 4 cups water in bottom of roasting pan
5. Add to turkey w/1 stick butter, paprika, salt & pepper
6. Wrap Turkey in heavy duty foil & place in roasting pan
7. Bake overnight (10p-6a) on 250 degrees (yes, 250- low heat)
8. Take it out in the morning to cool
9. Slice & Enjoy!

Happy Birthday Mommy!

Ty got to go to the Treasure Box at preschool today because he filled up his sticker chart.
He picked out this ring for me & gave it to me for my birthday.
