Pink Eye Update

Remember last week when i posted about Super Guy having Pink Eye and how i was keeping my fingers crossed that no one else in our house gets it???

Well i wasn't just crossing my fingers, i was also taking action and cleaning everything in the house and washing all of Super Guy's blankets, pillowcases, etc.

But Pink Eye is STRONG..

Everyone ended up getting pink eye!!!

First was my Hubby, his eyes were itching so he started doing the eye drops before it got too bad... Which worked really well, he ended up not really getting it that strongly.

Then was Jelly Bean, her eyes were all gooey and pink and she was so sick with over 100 degree fever. She is feeling better today though.

Yesterday my eyes started to itch and get a little red, so i started doing the eye drops too. They seem to be helping. Other than a little bit of itchiness i feel good!

Boogie Man also started to feel sick around the same time as Jelly Bean, lots of coughing, high fever and the gooey pink eyes.. Today his eyes are so gooey that i keep having to clean them like every 10 minutes :-(

On a positive note, Super Guy is feeling much better and is at school again today after missing most of last week. He couldn't wait to get to school this morning!! He really missed his friends!! :-)

Rainy Saturday in Minot

Yesterday we drove to Minot, to just get away from home for the day. The drive takes 2 hours each way, but is well worth it for all the shopping and restaurant's.

 It was raining (pouring actually) all day long. Which made the drive semi-difficult, it's hard to see when it is raining so heavy and to add the back splash from vehicles on top of that. I'm just glad we made it there and back home safe and sound.

Of course one of the first stops we had to make was Starbucks!! :-) Mmm, Carmel Mocha, Oh how I've missed you!!

And we had to stop at another one of my favorite stores, Staples!! Cause I'm an absolute office supply junkie and proud of it!! :-)

And what is this, Super Guy actually smiling on a long car ride!!! I know, I know, I'm as shocked as you are by this!! It just *might* have something to do with the next picture....

This picture should have the caption "Look what Daddy bought for me when Mommy wasn't looking!!"...

Because playing Angry Birds on the phone isn't enough, now they actually have the birds to throw around the house at things... Gee thanks for that Daddy!! J/K

It was actually a fun day for everyone. I got my coffee, My hubby got some new work clothes,
Super Guy & Boogie Man got their Angry Birds that they have been wanting and begging us to get them forever and Jelly Bean got a little baby doll.  :-)

Music lovin' baby

What happens if you are listening to a song you like and then the music suddenly stops?....

Well, if you are a baby, then you have to start singing your own little song..

Check out Jelly Bean sing and dance in her own little way..    :-)

She sure does love music!! (This video was taken around Easter time)

Blooming Beauty

There is this one tree in our backyard that has just pretty much bloomed overnight and it is so gorgeous!! It is so breathtakingly beautiful that it almost makes me want to make Spring my new favorite season, *almost* :-).

Isn't it beautiful?!

Hornet or Bee?! Doesn't matter to me..

Hey that rhymed! Dr. Seuss call me.. lol... Just kidding.. Anyways..

When we were hanging out in the backyard last month, we noticed on the shed, a nest. I don't know if it's a hornet's or bee's, either way it's scary. Oh and did i mention it was HUGE?!!!

Luckily i just so happened to have my camera on me, so you get to see just how big this nest was!!

Here it is before my hubby completely destroyed it...

And here it is after my hubby got his hands on it!! (Isn't it great to have a strong, brave hubby around?! Thanks babe!)

Jelly Bean Dancing (Take 1)

This video of Jelly Bean dancing was taken about a week ago.... She LOVES music!

Check out her cool moves..    :-)

4 year old's say the weirdest things!!!

So today Boogie Man was watching Mickey Mouse and they were going on a scavenger hunt..

 One of the clues was: it is white & when you crack it, it makes a yummy breakfast.

Boogie Man said "oh its a stinky shoe".. LOL

Pink eye has struck us, again!

Today Super Guy is home sick from school, with the dreaded Pink Eye! :( Poor little guy, it seems like he gets one sickness after another. Hopefully he doesn't share this one with us though!! *Fingers Crossed*

Saturday @ the lake...

Look at all these birds!!

Watching The Birds!
So many of them!! It was getting kinda scary at the end!!
Cool prints in the sand.
Love this picture!

Look at those wings!

Another Great Shot!

Tiny sand covered feet! :)

Enjoying some time in the shade, playing with rocks!

He started out wearing pants, but he just completely jumped in the water, so he ended up in his underwear!

These were all the "cool" rocks Super Guy collected, he wanted to take them all home, but sadly we only let him take 2.

"Walking" on water, :)

Transformers & Trucks, he is 100% BOY! :)

I just couldn't resist getting a shot of him in his underwear, too cute!

Daddy and Son <3

Watching her brothers play in the water!

She LOVED the water!!!

We hope everyone had a good Easter!!

Our Easter was nice! Saturday we dyed eggs and Sunday morning the kids woke to find that the Easter Bunny had visited us :)

Our Very First attempt to dye eggs, not too bad if i say so myself! :)

Look what the Easter Bunny brought for us!!
She got this bunny in her basket and was in love with it, she kept chewing on it's ears :)
mmm.. M&M's :)
Chewing on the ear.. Poor bunny..
Tired to get a good picture of the 3 of them, but it didn't work, this is the best i got..

What a week :)

Monday i mailed out Easter packages to some of our nieces and nephews, It took me like a week to complete them, but in the end i was really happy with the way they turned out!! :)

Each package included; plastic eggs filled with candy, Easter goodie bags filled with fun stuff and these handmade Happy Easter chicks :)

Isn't it cute?!?!! (The wings are Boogie Man's hand prints)

The Tooth Fairy visited our house Tuesday Night :) Tuesday morning Super Guy lost his first tooth!!! :) I took a picture on my cell phone, but it didn't turn out that great (I'll take more this weekend) But you can sorta tell in the picture below, that there is an empty space on the bottom row..
While doing some Easter shopping at Wal-mart, i found this adorable outfit for Jelly Bean! :) Which was really surprising cause normally Wal-mart doesn't have that great of a selection of clothing, in my opinion.
Aww, I love her! :)
Yesterday (Thursday) afternoon we decided to take the kids for a walk on this one walking path Hubby found.. It was such a beautiful day out :)
This is the path, it follows along this one river :) And it went goes on for awhile, we only walked a mile down it.. So we walked for a total of 2 miles :)
Beautiful day, with a light breeze :)
The kids had a good time throwing rocks into the water :)
