Pumpkin time and other stuff!

It's that fun time of year to the pumpkin patch. We had a friend's friend meet us out there this year and take some great pictures of Cara (& me). You can view them on this website: They are precious. Of course she doesn't actually look at the camera, and she didn't smile, but that's ok. She's been sick, yes AGAIN! Runny nose started last Tuesday when we went up to Georgetown to visit my grandparents for a couple of days. The cough started on Thursday evening. I figured it was drainage and gave her my best dose of benadryl and delsym over the weekend. It got worse (the cough) so we took her in on Monday to the doctor. She said she had a major infection in her nose, so we were prescribed amoxycillan again. That evening (about 8 hours after her first dose), the rash started again. (see my flickr site for pics). It dawned on me, this isn't Roseola like last time because she hasn't run a fever, then it clicked, she's allergic!! Called the doctor, she said don't give it to her that night, to give her benadryl and stop by in the morning. We stopped by at 8:15, and she said she was marking her down as allergic (it had mostly gone away, but I took pictures the night before). She said it may be amoxycillan rash, but we'd stay away, so now she's on a new med and it seems to be working ok (but don't get me started on the 3 trips to walgreens to get it!!).

Anyways, that's the long version of what's been going on lately. Oh I forgot. Our ABF (adult bible fellowship) at Kingsland got together 2 friday nights ago and had a murder mystery party. It was hilarious (because most of us dressed themed). There are some pictures on my flickr site. Now I'm done!

Happy Birthday Ronnie!! (& Denise & Aidan)

Today is Eric's BEST FRIEND - Ronnie Garretsen's birthday. We hope he and his family are having a great day up in Denver. I also missed my good friend Denise Campbell's birthday on Tuesday, and her son Aidan's on Monday! I've been getting really bad about it! We hope everyone is enjoying this fall season!

This is a picture from last Christmas season when Ronnie and his family were down visiting. At the good ole' Pappadeaux!

Mommy's sick

Yesterday was just a horrible day. I woke up about 2 am with a fever. I was hot to the touch (per Eric) but I was shivering and I could not get warm. First I added pants, then socks, then a hoodie. I laid under the blankets for awhile and just shivered. Then I got online to look at symptoms. When I decided it was just a cold/flu, I went and laid on the couch and watched tv. I think I nodded off about 6:20, then woke up at 6:45, then laid down at 7, then got up with Cara at 8! Thank goodness I already had an allergist appointment scheduled for 8:45. He was able to prescribe me a Z-pack (which I can take because I'm still not pregnant!). Cara was so good yesterday, thank God! I was worthless, I just laid on the couch all day. She played and danced and played some more. She is such a sweetie pie when she's not sick! :) Eric of course was especially busy yesterday. They had their district's "Band Extravaganza" yesterday. It's basically Pre-UIL where all their district bands perform. Eric said his band performed the best he's ever seen them, so it's looking up. But he didn't get home till 10:45! Cara was sleepy (probably from inactivity), so she was in bed at 6:45. Which gave me plenty of time to lay on the couch and catch up on my tv. By the way, the private practice from Wednesday made me cry hysterically! If you've just had a baby, or are pregnant, I recommend not watching that episode!! My fever broke yesterday evening after the 1st dose, and I feel better today.

Also, we've been having our kitchen redone. We've gotten new granite countertops, and a new dishwasher, microwave/hood and convection range. The last of the granite is being installed as we speak (some small parts they forgot Tuesday when they were installing the rest). I have some before and after pictures, but remember everything's not done. I LOVE my new sink. I wanted 1 basin and the deepest I could find. It's great. All my cookie sheets/roasting pans, etc all fit in there! Anyways, Cara's down for her nap, I'm going to get some stuff done.
