10 days...

Has it really been 10 days since I made a post with Evan!!! Shocking :) he he... So here's what we have been up to :)
Last Thursday evening he had a little fever so I gave him some Motrin and he was off to bed- Friday I did not send him to school because the fever was back...It seemed to be controlled with doing the Tylenol / Motrin mix...He had no other symptoms other than fever...loss of appetite but that was really it-
Here we are on our way to Target- I thought he was looking funny with his shades :)
Even though he wasn't feeling 100% I needed to grab a few items from Target. When I was getting the laundry detergent he told me I needed to buy this one (the one he is pointing to) because it takes out stains!!! I nearly feel over...I said- oh ya...how do you know that one takes out stains? And he said because it said so on the commercial :) Ya! I think we have been watching a little to much TV lately :) Funny enough for me to take a picture though :) he he...
Pretty late Friday night he spiked a fever of 104.7 I was like this can not be right so I took it again 104.4 he was shaking and saying he was cold...I tried not to panic... gave him a dose of medicine and laid in bed and prayed over him and put a cool wet wash cloth on his head... The fever broke and he seemed to be fairly normal on Saturday...I was thinking it was just a 24 hour bug...we laid low most of the day but did let him go to his good buddy's 5th Birthday party...

A sponge race...
And a balloon race...he won both :)

This kid loves pinatas :)
Transformers...more than meets the eye :)
So...Saturday we did some preventive medicine and thought we were on the mends...Then Sunday came: He now had a mild red rash on his face and neck...but managed to get some of the spooky decorations up :)
Evan & Daddy working on getting the spider web up :)
The web :)
The web & pumpkins :) We also have spooky ghosts in the trees but I have not taken a pict of that yet :)
So that brings us to Monday: I did not send him to school because he sleep late...which I wanted him to get his rest but also the little rash had now moved from his face and neck to his chest, stomach, back and arms! He still had no fever just this weired rash...So I called the pediatrician and got the first appt which was on Tuesday just to see what was going on.
Here is my non-compliant little love child hiding at the pediatricians office!!!
Oh ya...good times!
So her conclusion is he had a virus which is now gone and the rash is just a secondary thing that is not contagious & will just go away... And if it doesn't in a month to come back...hello a month!!! Thank goodness it already seems just about gone :)
Which brings us to tonight...Tonight was Tristan's friend party...I guess I didn't clarify...Saturday was his family party and tonight was his friend party @ Chuck E Cheese :)
I wasn't going to take that many pictures because hello...how many times have we been to Chuck E Cheese now...But I was shocked! Evan did sooo good :) Like he made the first 4 Basketball shots and...
Was whipping that little arm of his & getting the ball where it was suppose to be!!! You know instead of it rolling right back at him :) I was surprised how his skill level has changed :) I didn't post the other shot of him at this game but he just looks soooo tall to me now!!! Would someone please make something to stop all of this growing up that just keeps happening!!! :)
Evan and Tristan waiting for their piece of cake!!!
Happy 5th Birthday buddy!!!
Seriously...where has the time gone...the boys meet when Evan was 6 months old and Tristan just turned a year!!! I guess I will be saying that every year!!! It just feels like yesterday they were baby's...today they are 5 (almost 5) so what tomm. they are going to be teenagers!!! God help us all :) he he...

Fall

Fall

The old earth is changing;
The seasons turn round.
The Autumn leaves flutter
Their way to the ground.

My own world is changing;
The seasons conspire
To grant me the peace
Of rest by the fire.

Happy Birthday Mom!!!

Otherwise titled: The worst daughter :( My mom's Birthday was actually yesterday & I feel really bad that I am just getting her birthday blast done today...and not only that but I was so prepared I took a part of her gift with me to Wisconsin and then I brought it back thinking I would send all of her gift together....have I been to the post office...no :( I am so sorry Mom!!! You are always so nice about my being late and I am so sorry :( I am sure Evan will do this to me in years to come and I will have to remember a certain daughter who did the same thing to her mom :( I did enjoy chatting with you yesterday...you know...on your real Birthday :)
The first 2 pictures I took of my mom(well, you know I didn't take them of her I took them from her house) and had them framed in my room when I first left home when I was 19...
So pretty :)
Me and my mom lookin lovely :) ummm banana...
Mom...you are rockin those sunglasses at the zoo :)
Oh...and the white flocked Christmas tree :) I'm thinking by your outfit you are ready to go to Hawaii not Christmas but it's ok I don't think anyone will notice the outfit with the shag carpet all around us :) Oh my what is Evan going to say about his early pictures... I can only imagine :)
This has always been one of my favorite pictures! It was in the frame with the other 2 :) Gotta love your Momma :)
Here is a picture of Mom in New York :) My mom sister and I all went to New York together :)
Gotcha! This was the summer I was home and you helped me plan my wedding :)
I really like this picture as well...it didn't copy very well but I think you look really pretty here at Paula's ( my sister if you don't know :) ) wedding :) You have always loved things bedazzled and kinda loud, wild and fun :)
I like this shot as well :) This is my mom with her 2 cousins- Mom wasn't so sure about the whole trampoline deal but she gave it a go :) You know these 3 tore it up back in the day :)
This one is a little out of order as she sent it to Evan about 2 years ago... It is her and her mom with the Brewer sausage guys...why you might ask??? Because they were at a contest and if you know anything about my mom...she loves her some contests :)
Here is my Momma with her first Grandchild :) So very blessed to have my mom be at the hospital with me when I had Evan and to have her help that first month :) It was so sad when she had to go home :(

So this probably isn't the best shot but it reminds me of how very giving this woman is!!! She is holding my child and petting the dog :) We never had any pets growing up but Mom has found a special place in her heart for my three ( now 2 ) dogs... When we first got home from the hospital she keep the dogs with her at night so they wouldn't be in the room with us and the new baby & not only did she keep the dog's out of the way she would help with Evan at night as well :) I don't know what I would have done with out you mom!!!

How blessed we are!!! Evan's first year of life we got to see my mom every other month!!! We got so spoiled :) We go longer periods of time with out seeing each other now and we miss you much!!! But we know your giving heart is right where it needs to be :) ( My Mom takes care of her Momma now :))

The cool Grandma that she is...going sledding in the snow with Evan :)
This picture of mom and Evan holding their dice lollipops was when I got back from Vegas! Thank you so much for keeping him!!! I was able to have a little get away with my hubby thanks to you! I would have never felt as comfortable with anyone else watching him...I know when he is with you he is in good hands :)
Mom: I am sorry this is late :( But I hope you know how much you are loved!!! I know we don't always see eye to eye & I can be a little brat even as an adult and I am sorry...I would be lost with out you...We may not live in the same state but I always know you are a phone call away! (Evan at 2am :) ) Thank you for being the best mom you could be and for helping me be the best mom I can be! Evan loves you so much it is ridiculous :) I think if you lived here he would want to live with you :) he he... But I wouldn't want it any other way :) I love you Mom!!!
