more from our friend coxsackie

Oh, the coxsackie is kicking ass around here. This is what we're dealing with...







**** warning!!!! Graphic 3 1/2 year old booty shot!!!! **** :)


Poor kiddo. I don't know what to do to help her. I can't give her any Benadryl until evening and the baking soda baths just don't cut it. I tried some Benadryl cream and she just informed me that "it made the itching at-chwooly stop!" I guess we'll keep using that then!

In other news- I haven't spilled anything else on myself all day! Things are lookin' up :)

It's a good thing that I already had a bunch of laundry to do because I just dumped a full cup of coffee all over myself. Yeah. Some days you can just tell it's going to be a goooood day...

Is it too early to start drinking?

We have been taken over by Coxsackie 5!!!!!

Erin has this little virus with a big scary sounding name. Luckily it really isn't a big deal, but it's a little strange. Slight fever and an itchy rash. But the poor kid has at least 30 very itchy spots just on the palm of one tiny hand! I am supposed to give Benadryl, but it knocks her out so fast I am going to have to wait to give it to her at bedtime, I think.

Other than rashes, all is well and quiet. Bailey did well at the meet. She didn't quite make state time. She came very very close in two events, but not this year. She was a little disappointed at first, but now she just sees it as a new goal to reach for in the upcoming long course season.

Alright. I'm off to do the dishes. Fun...

I am supposed to be doing things this morning. Lots of things. Packing. Baking. More baking. We are leaving for Helena this afternoon for what may be Bailey's final swim meet of the season. We are all crossing our fingers for her at this one. It's her last chance to make her qualifying time for the Montana State Junior Olympics. The last meet didn't go well since she decided to spike a fever right in the middle of it. Poor kid. She swam all her events, but she added time in everything. This time around she is healthy and she is excited.

Naturally, since I have so much to do I am doing nothing but wasting time on the computer and drinking coffee. Oh, and if you also happen to be actively avoiding things and feel like checking it out, here is a little project Josh and I have been slowly working on.

Valentine's Day

I admit it. I love Valentine's Day. The chance to be openly sentimental and sappy is just too much to resist :)

This is how our day went yesterday:

We began the day with pink heart-shaped pancakes and strawberry syrup


We paused later in the day to play a silly little game (you have to attempt to feed each other candy hearts using chopsticks)



Then we set the table and began cooking for our fancy dinner. We made some super yummy pasta, salmon cakes with garlic aioli, and a big salad. Then we made "love potions" for the girls and Josh and I had champagne with our chocolate cheesecake for dessert. The girls wanted to do it all as a surprise for their dad, and he was quite surprised!



The girls and I spent about a week scouring stores for just the right things for the table and they managed to keep it all so secret. Quite impressive, really, since usually they get too excited. But, it was all very sappy and pink and fun. I can't wait for next year :)

While not a problem we have to worry about in this house, still a good warning for anyone else who may have gotten their little ones an easy-bake oven.

You Belong in 1964

If you scored...

1950 - 1959: You're fun loving, romantic, and more than a little innocent. See you at the drive in!

1960 - 1969: You are a free spirit with a huge heart. Love, peace, and happiness rule - oh, and drugs too.

1970 - 1979: Bold and brash, you take life by the horns. Whether you're partying or protesting, you give it your all!

1980 - 1989: Wild, over the top, and just a little bit cheesy. You're colorful at night - and successful during the day.

1990 - 1999: With you anything goes! You're grunge one day, ghetto fabulous the next. It's all good!

We have been waiting and waiting for more snow. (some of us more patiently than others!) Yesterday we had some snow, and today even more! Definitely sled worthy. So, why are we not outside freezing our noses and toeses? Well, because Erin, still in her jammies, has a temperature fluctuating between 101 and 103 degrees, and a really nasty sounding cough. She didn't have either of those things when she went to bed, not even any cold symptoms. So, instead we are drinking tea and watching the snow out the window. It's beautiful, but I wish we were out playing in it instead of just watching it. Maybe tomorrow.

Punk rock girl

Bailey has started learning to play the guitar. She knows three whole chords now and practiced them until her fingers were red and swollen and throbbing.


I think I may have get her her own guitar.
