A bit of fun

So who says that when you are in 'quarantine' you can't have a little fun and pretend to be a fireman wearing 'sunglasses'?? We should be in our last day of having to stay home and I am so proud of Teagan and how he is handling everything. We still have several days of being on THREE antibiotics, but soon we should be down to one. I can tell that the kids are missing their friends at school and so am I!

A 'forced' vacation

So I have been 'put on vacation'. To some it wouldn't be such a bad thing, but for me, I feel like I needed to plan more and I feel like my room is quite ready for me to be gone ALL week!!

For his 3rd birthday, my sweet boy got another gift from our party venue, an infection of hospital grade! Evidently it's going around, and when I stopped by to let them know about it, they didn't seem all that concerned or interested in cleaning their playscape....not sure we will be going back.

Now that we know what our sweet boy has, we have to stay 'quarantined' til at least Friday and pray that he does NOT get any worse. He does NOT act sick other than crying at the DROP of a hat. He is on a potent antibiotic every 8 hours, for the next 10 days. ALL of us get to put an antibiotic ointment in our noses twice a day for the next 3 WEEKS!! So for my 'unplanned' forced vacation, I will be cleaning my apartment like nobody's business, getting back into my running regiment..slowly, and trying to rest as best I can with the extra bathing and laundry I have to do EVERYDAY!

Well, we finally made it to the bluebonnets!! We have been driving by them everyday for I don't know how many weeks and we finally made it over there to them. I may use these as their yearly pictures this year!! Not sure though. I think they came out pretty good. These are my top favorites!!

Teagan's 3rd birthday

I can't believe I have been so busy that I haven't been able to post a blog!! Yikes!! Sorry!! So here's our family update from the last 6 weeks.

March: Gabe had his 33rd birthday, I had my 32nd birthday, and we celebrated our 12th anniversary. I got a 'promotion' at work. Basically, I got some added responsibilities to see if I have the leadership qualities to possibly get into an administrative role within my company.

April: Gabe had shoulder surgery on his left shoulder and will be back to work on Monday. Teagan has turned 3!! I am being recognized as "Teacher of the Month" out of ALL 18 schools that are within my company!! Right now Teagan might also have a staff infection on his side. He has lots of blister type things all over his right side and they seem to be spreading. He is on a topical antibiotic, doesn't seem to be itching them, and we will know something definitive on Monday. We are also planning on going camping at the end of the month with Gabe's mom, as well, as celebrating my grandparents 60th anniversary. It will be another busy month and I would like to figure out how to start running again in the midst of it!

Here are some of Teagan's birthday pictures from his party!! Enjoy and just look at how big he is getting!!
