Birthday Pictures & Sick Kids

I want to post Logan's B-day pics but since my hard drive crashed I realized I need to reload all of my picture programs! I will get Eddie to do that this week and get the pics up soon.

As for the sick kids...Logan seems to be feeling better. No more fever but still has a nasty cough. Brenden is feeling much better too. But now my Chaser is sick. He has a low fever and cough and stayed in bed all day today, poor baby.
I woke up this morning really drained with a sore throat so I just stayed in bed and rested til almost noon as well. I didn't have Kaiden (the little girl I watch) because she was home sick too.
Okay, off to bed. I'll get those pics up soon.

I can't believe my baby is 3! Oh my goodness how time fly's. Today started out a little gloomy but cleared up by noon and turned into a GREAT day! Clear sky, sunny with a high of about 70, it was perfect. But he was a little under the weather, unfortunately. He still had a low fever and a runny nose, poor thing. But his party went well. The cake was so cute. I had a friend of a friend make it for me. She made a large round cake with train tracks and got a train 3d mold and put it on top and decorated it to look like Thomas. Then there were 20 cupcakes that went around the cake. He got lots of toys and some clothes, undies (since were potty training) PJ's and a Thomas swim shirt and trunk set. When he was done opening his presents we took him outside to see his gift from us. He was so happy to see his Power Wheels Jeep Hurricane! Got right in and took off riding for the next 2 hours!
Besides not feeling the best he had a great party =)
I will post the pics tomorrow evening.
I am SO tired and worn out!

My 100th Blog Entry!

Oh my goodness! I made it to 100, LOL! I must say I have been neglecting my blog lately. I've just been too busy or too tired lately. Then my hard drive crashed and I've been working on getting my computer back in order, that really sucked.
I've mostly been cleaning this house...getting it ready for Logan's birthday party which is tomorrow! I think it's pretty much as clean as it's going to get. Then at the last minute I decided to paint the hallway and the baseboards, it looks so much better. And we had to re-do the wood floors in the hallway because I guess we didn't put them in right the first time and they separated.
So tomorrow is Logan's 3rd B-day! We are having the party here at the house tomorrow at 2 p.m. The theme is Thomas the Train! Tonight I decorated the den and kitchen, it looks so good. I ordered the whole Thomas package through and it makes it so much easier. While I did that Eddie was out back putting together Logan's gift. A Power Wheels Jeep Hurricane. Man, that thing is almost as big as a Toyota Echo! He's going to love it! I will write and post pics tomorrow evening.
I'm a little upset about 2 things though...all I asked was that it #1 NOT RAIN and #2 that no one gets sick. Well, it's supposed to rain, that sucks! The whole point of having the party here at the house was so that he could ride his Jeep as soon as he got it! So let's hope the rain goes somewhere else! And can you believe, my kids are NEVER sick but guess what happens tonight? Brenden is complaining of a headache and feels warm and Logan sat on the couch with a blanket for 4 hours without moving and also feels warm and has a cough! I mean c'mon...not now!
Let's hope they both wake up feeling better in the morning and NO RAIN!

Tonight Eddie and I got to go out for a nice dinner. I don't think we've been out for Valentine's in probably 12 years, since Brenden was born in 1995! Being I have found a sitter I can trust finally I called her 2 weeks ago and made the arrangements and Eddie called our favorite steak restaurant (Fleming's) but they were already booked! So we went to the second best steak place in town, Sullivan's. And we were lucky to get reservations there! Eddie heard on the radio today that every restaurant in town was booked. My goodness, I had no idea it was that crazy! I'm glad I stayed home all those years and cooked!

Anyway, last night Eddie and I left the kids with our neighbor friends and went to the mall. He bought me a new dress, necklace and shoes. And this evening before we left for dinner he gave me my gift...2 Mercedes purses, one was a small black evening purse and the other was a big brown seatbelt purse. It pretty neat, it's made out of car seatbelts only, the whole thing! For his gift I gave him (well, gonna give, it comes in tomorrow) a LED strip light thingy that goes on the back of the truck below the tailgate, above the bumper. Kinda like a 4th brakelight. I don't know, but they are in and cool and he wanted one!

So tonight, I went and picked up the sitter at 5, Eddie and I left at 6 and our reservation was for 6:30. We got there right on time and were seated right away. The first thing Eddie said was "I hope they dont have us packed in somewhere" and what do ya know, we were packed right in the middle! The place was crazy busy! The food and service were just okay but overall we had a nice time together just the 2 of us.

Can you believe this was our 20th Valentine's Day together??? Holy cow!

Hope you all had a nice Valentine's Day =)
