Strep, or not

I woke up Sunday morning with a horrible sore throat. I have had strep quite a few times and I assumed that's what it was again. So I headed to a doctor after I got home and the rapid test came back negative. So they sent it off, and negative again. This was by far the worst sore throat I have ever had. It lasted 5 whole days and once I even took a vicatin and it didn't even touch the pain. Jonathan is sick now with the same thing and his strep test came back negative too. Maybe we have found a new strain. I finally can swallow with no pain, its great.

Bryan is home this week, poor guy, two sick parents. It is his Spring Break. But the temperatures are in the 40's and raining. Sunday it was very pretty and Kylee was even sporting her new shorts. Here is a video of her in the SPRINKLER!

As you can see Daddy was a little mean with the water pressure. Kylee came over and gave Mommy a big wet hug.

Here is another one where Kylee is riding brother's 4-wheeler.

Happy 30th Birthday


Happy Birthday to Jonathan!! He is 30 years old today. I am so happy to have the privileged to be his wife and watch him be such a great father to our kids. We had his birthday celebration last night. Here are some pictures.


Kylee really wanted to help Daddy blow out his candles. She even went over and pointed to the lighter to relight the candle. Yes that is an 8 that was cut to look like a 3 :)
Daddy doing the dishes after his own birthday celebration because I have strep :(


Bryan decided that he needed to measure the whole house. Kylee of course had to join in.

Eating, Bubba and other stuff

I just got home from work, put Kylee down for a nap, ate a quick lunch and now I finally have a quiet moment to blog a little. Sorry it has been so long. I didn't realize how long it had been until I looked back at the pictures from my camera. I have some catching up to do!

We had a great time with Bryan weekend before last. And he gets to come home again on Saturday. It is his Spring Break. It is a week before mine, so he gets to go the preschool with Kylee and I. I'm sure he will occupy himself with his DS or a movie and it will work out fine. Here is a picture from his last visit. Kylee wasn't sure what to think about someone else being in her bed.

We had Kylee's baby blessing at church a couple of weeks ago. It was very nice. Grandma got to come, but the rest of the grandparents were sick or working. So here is a picture of her all pretty.
I'm sorry I don't have any of the actual ceremony. Let me just say that it was the longest service ever. It actually lasted 15 minutes shorter than most, but we had to keep Kylee in the auditorium the whole time. Crazy!! I think she ate her weight in goldfish.

Kylee loves to help mommy clean. I used to block her out of the kitchen when I would mop, but now that she can walk I let her hang out with me. Plus my sis got me a swiffer wetjet for Christmas and it does a good job without making your floor dangerously wet. So Daddy got my old swiffer and shortened it. Now it is perfect for Miss Kylee.



Yesterday was a very long day. I went to work all day tutoring. Then I came home and got a quick snack with Jonathan. Then we headed over to church for our biweekly counseling. Then we went to the babysitter's to pick up Kylee. We grabbed a bite to eat and headed home. We hadn't seen Kylee all day and we were really hungry. So we decided to have a picnic in the living room hoping that we could play with Kylee while we ate. Well of course she had other plans. She wanted to eat with us! Jonathan got chicken which came with a roll. Kylee helped herself to the roll while we were in the kitchen getting plates. Then I was eating my chicken sandwich and she came over and grabbed a hunk of bread off of my bun. What a silly nut. So after she finished her carbs (we only let her have a little of course). I got her some crushed ice that we had in the freezer and let her go to town. I don't know what her fascination is with ice, but she loves it!


Notice how messy my house is in all of these pictures. I have decided that it is more important to play with her than maintain a clean house. Can I hear an amen?
