Last weekend, Grammy and Grampy came to play with us! They brought lots of Halloween goodies.
(Ethan, Sav, Grammy, Ben, Grampy, Drew)
Grammy and Ethan
of course Ben and Savannah go straight for the suckers…one for each hand.
Drew loves his Halloween light stick
Love this pic of Grampy and Drew
Sweet Lil Savi with her broomstick- girl is in heaven (probably feels right at home with that broomstick! I kid, I kid…..)
Love her. Sav is such an incredible, wise-beyond-years, little girl…a pure joy to be around.
Sweet Jess and Uncle Ed came over to play as well! (but I’m betting they wish they hadn’t---after we all passed around a nasty stomach bug! SOOOOO SORRY!!!!)
Benny and his Grampy…little guy loves his grandfathers. Such an old soul.
Table for 10 at BJ’s
Grammy lovin’ on Savi
Identical smiles! (sorry for the gums sweet Drew---but Mama just loves seeing your gigantic grin from ear to ear!)
After lunch on Saturday, we braved the “birthday party crowds” at our neighborhood Chuck-E-Cheese for the first time ever. I must say, I was hesitant- but the kids ended up having a blast! Thanks to Grampy and Grampy for always showing us a good time. Look for that post tomorrow.
You guys may be wondering, “Wow- Suz is actually blogging on a regular basis again!” That would be because I’ve had LOTS of time on my hands. We have all passed around an awful stomach bug. Any of you had it? Its horrible, right?! Here’s how we have been weathering the
last Wednesday: Ben starts puking off an on all night
Thursday-Friday: everyone was fine- I actually thought we might all stay healthy!
Saturday night: I puked all night and did not leave my bed for 24 hours
Sunday: Suz sick in bed all day
Monday: Sav wakes up with a fever, lethargic. Ethan starts puking that afternoon
Tuesday: Andrew starts puking
Wednesday: Joe starts puking; take Sav to the doctor because her fever is not coming down- she has a urinary tract infection (her second within a month…thinking about kidney problems again.)
This morning: Sav starts puking; Joe is unable to get out of bed.
AWESOME!!! I have missed work all week, the kids have missed school. Joe is missing work. Poor Ed and Jess have gotten the bug, which we feel horrible about! Thank God that my dad, and Grammy & Grampy haven’t gotten sick.
Speaking of being sick, make sure you check out this week’s topic at LG’s text education. Did you know that 43% of teens admit to participating in some form of “sexting”? FORTY-THREE PERCENT!!!!!!! Now that makes me ill. Don’t know what “sexting” is? You should. Check out the convo: “WEEK 5: Teens and Sexting, Parents and Sexting”.
