Sick Day

Yesterday, I stayed at home with Aydrie Rose.  She started feeling bad Saturday morning and Adam and I instantly knew she had strep.  We kept Tylenol and Advil in her over the weekend and Adam took her to the doctor on Monday and sure enough it was strep. He stayed home with her Monday and I took off yesterday. 

I hate when any of my kids are sick but especially her because she can not tell us what is hurting her and we pretty much have to guess and figure it out. She has had strep many times so we can recognize the symptoms and pretty much know that is what she has.  I have asked the doctor about getting her tonsils removed but at this point that is not an option for us.  Her tonsils do not swell or anything they just get infected mainly because she has a bad habit of putting her hands in her mouth.  If that makes any sinceSo, we are on an antibiotic for the next ten days.

We slept in, took a couple of naps, and I got all my laundry done. I enjoyed my day off.  I just wish this little girl would have felt better.  It's hard to tell from this picture she wasn't feeling well.

We may or may have not had a cupcake for a the am.  Ha!  I was just trying to make a sick girl feel better and Ace just got lucky.

I couldn't keep these two away from each other.  They would decide they like each other when one of them is sick. I think Ace was worried about his sister.

Luckly the meds are working and by late last night she was feeling ten times better!  We start school next Monday so we need to get this girl well!

Show and Tell Monday

Hey I wanted to share a quick and easy dinner we have been enjoying at our house.

I got this off of Pinterest so this is not my original recipe.  I love when I find a good recipe on Pinterest and it works for us.

Everyone loved it!

What you will need:       Green beans
                                    New potatoes
                                    Italian dressing mix
                                    One stick of butter

You can use chicken breast or chicken strips.  It really doesn't matter.  We just used canned green beans and new potatoes.

Arrange in dish. Sprinkle with the italian dressing mix and then top with a melted stick of butter.

Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for about one hour or until chicken is done.

It really is that simple and so good!

A little tip...don't use all the italian dressing mix. We used about half and it was plenty. When we make ours we only use one can of green beans and one can of new potatoes. I guess if you use more green beans, chicken and potatoes you might need the whole packet of italian dressing mix.

Friday Randoms

Happy Friday!

Well this week went by fast and I am sure glad it did!  It is Adam's weekend off so we will be spending our Saturday doing last minute school shopping.  We had Austin's open house last night and Aydrie's is next week.  I can't believe I have a 7th grader!

Speaking of my 7th grader he went to breakfast with his Papa the other day and sent me this picture.  Doesn't this look so good?!!

Aunt Yaya came to see us this week and Ace and Aydrie were happy to see her.  After Yaya left Ace wouldn't stop asking "Yaya bye-bye".

It has been so hot here and our back yard has about had it.  We have been watering the front and keeping the grass green but our back yard has not been getting anything.  So, the other night Adam decided to water the back yard and the kids enjoyed playing in the sprinkler.  Ace was wet from head to toe!  And yes we finally moved his slide out side.  He seems to be okay with it.

We got ice cream from the ice cream man this week and enjoyed sitting out side easting it and getting all sticky.  Ace was nice and shared with Aydrie Rose. 
Ace's new favorite thing is to watch his Mickey on my Kindle Fire.

Weekend Fun

Last Friday Adam and I had a date night!  It was a much needed date night.  I was so excited when he told me Thursday he was taking the kids to my moms and they were staying with her Friday night.  We don't get out much by ourselves so this a treat for us.

Heather invited us out with her and Jared and a couple of their friends.  Derek and Chelsea also came with us.

We went to see Casey Donahew Band and got home way to late!  Me and Chelsea chatted all night and people watched of course. We all had a fun time!  I would love to have a date night once a month!

Saturday Adam worked and we stayed at home all day.  I guess you can say Adam and I were tired from our night out.  We are getting old. Ha!  We did have some entertainment Saturday night.  This little boy is so silly.

Sunday we had breakfast at Adams parents.  The kids decided they wanted to swim and we didn't have our swim suites so we just threw on our swim diapers and made it work.  They had fun!  We decided to let them swim in the late am before it got to hot. 


Hope you all had a great weekend!

Happy Wednesday!!

Hope your week is going good. 

We are getting ready for school around here.  We are just about ready...thanks to my on line shopping.  The only thing we have left are shoes and school Aydrie's school supplies...which shouldn't be to bad.  We hope to get that done this weekend.  I totally wasn't aware it was tax free weekend!  And I told myself I wasn't going to wait till the last minute. I just couldn't bring myself to buy school stuff in July...when I first saw it in the stores! 

I am also starting to plan Ace's birthday party.  I can't believe he is going to be 2!!  It is crazy how time just flies by.  Ace loves Mickey Mouse so he is having a Micky Mouse party.  We have decided to just do a small party like we did for Aydrie this past year just to keep is simple.  I have found some cute stuff on Pinterest and I am on the hunt for all things Mickey!  We shall see how it turns out!

Today I am linking up to The Pleated Poppy once again. 

A couple of weeks ago I was at Target looking for some black pants and found a perfect pair.  I ended up going back and getting two more pairs in different colors.  I tell you when I find something that works I buy it in every color available.

The good thing is I saw at Target last weekend that they now have a few more fall colors out now. I may have to snatch those up to. They would be good to where with flats in the fall.

Last weekend we took the kids to the circus.  We decided to go last minute and then we decided to bring Aydrie Rose with us at the last minute. Luckily there was a seat still available for her.  I was really nervous about taking her with us.  I had planned to leave her with her daddy but felt bad leaving her. So, we took her and she had a great time!

We met up for lunch before the show started.  We went and ate some good mexican food!

We got to the circus a little early and Austin was able to go and enjoy the pre-show events.  He came back to our seats with these cool pics. 

Before the show started we tried to get some pics together but the kids were way to distracted. Ha!

We of course had to enjoy a few treats while we were there.

The show was good and everyone enjoyed it.

My favorite part was the elephants.  Ace enjoyed them to.

It was a great show!

We will defiantly be going again next year.
