sick pumpkin





Update, I have now been sleeping on the pull out couch (with Russ of course) for a good month.  Here is a picture of a smidgen of our chaos.  The Lord has surely taught me to relinquish control by now right??Here are some pictures of the sweetest strawberry you have ever seen while she trick-or treat's around our neighborhood.

I have one cute little sick pumpkin (just a bad cold) therefore we were at home the whole day.  (Which I am not good at....) I lasted till about 4:00 and then I quickly made up an errand that needed to be done. i.e. get contractor trash bags from Lowe's...really?? I also, in my mom intuition, decided that Josie had a sore throat.  Which called for a frosted orange from The Varsity. Yes, I am Frankie Queen's daughter...so not only does a Coc-a-cola fix a headache but a frosted orange from the Varsity fixes a sore throat.  

Two funny children happenings occurred today amidst our house of renovation craziness and child with sickness.  These two worlds colliding produce one freed up Mama.  If not, I would cry the whole day.    

So I am in Josie's room putting away her clothes when I realize... "it is way too quite in there."  I walk in the den to see Josie painting Thomas with her red Tylenol.  How could I not laugh and take a picture??.... Awesome.




Second happening, in our kitchen a wall was torn down.  Well there is a place on the floor that is waiting to be patched up.  Josie tripped on it this evening and landed her fanny directly in Thomas' water bowl.  It was hilarious.  I wanted to take a picture but Josie was in some distress so I thought that might be cruel.  Water was everywhere.
Hope you got a laugh with us!
I hope to be a better blogger.
