Shopping Trip & SICKIES

We had a fun weekend-mostly. We have to go to "the big city" to get anything Wal-Mart doesn't sell. We needed 2 things and ended up getting 3. 1. Dresses for the girls for my cousins wedding and for the little girls to be in a little king and queen contest being held in our small town in Sept. 2. Football shoes, jersey, mouth guard and sox for Bean.

We divided and conquered. The Captain took the boys to get the football stuff, while I took the girls to Von Maur to get dresses. We ONLY looked at the clearance rack. They each picked about 4 or 5 dresses and tried every one on. It was so fun to watch! I kept my mouth SHUT on my opinions and truly let them pick out what THEY wanted not what I wanted-tough to do LOL! $60 grand total!
Purchase #3.....We just "happened" by a western store and wandered in. WyWy REFUSED to leave without all his garb to include hat, boots, black leather vest, shirt with pearlized buttons and new Wranglers. He will also be in the little king contest. Once he tried it all on-there was NO PEELING IT OFF so here he is standing ON the counter at the register as the cashier scans the items.He slept with everything and has for several nights. We were FINALLY able to peel it all off of him Monday night.

Aw-Bell got a fever Friday night and has been sick since. MyMy started a fever Saturday but isn't near as sick. Sunday, I noticed Aw-Bell's breathing pattern change and so I felt a trip to the ER was in order. Since birth, she has struggled with pneumonia and lung issues. I took both girls in but you can tell which one is the sicker.After the chest x-ray, it was determined that she has pneumonia again. She's SUCH a tough little girl. Even having her throat swabbed and blood drawn, she didn't make a peep-proof she was super sick. We have been doing breathing treatments, antibiotics & ibuprofen but she STILL has a fever so I am taking her back in this morning.
I have accepted that this may mean our Florida vacation is cancelled. I know God has a plan for everything and its just a vacation. Her health is MUCH more important.The ER was freezing so the nurse snuggled us all in a blankie!

Good luck- I hope they are all feeling better soon. You just feel so bad for them seeing their sad little faces- being sick in the summer is just horrible! Hugs and kisses from you long lost cousins in Chicago.

I hope everyone gets to feeling better very soon! I love the cowboy outfit! We had hoped to be up your direction for a race this fall but DH has decided to run the WIchita 1/2 marathon instead so he's ready for the Marine Corp Marathon in late Oct. One of these days, we are going to get there! We would love to meet your crew!
