A little trip!

cutie little bootie man.

Gator is fascinated with SHRUCKS!!! (Trucks). My grandpa is rebuilding a truck (1932,red,Chevy? I am not sure on any of those details except the that is will be red) and Gator was so fascinated by all the parts. He instantly knew this was a truck even though it is only the engine. What a pretty engine it is too. Gator and grandpa got along real well since they both had a love for shrucks and tractors. Gator needed a little fix every now and then so he would go over to the window to the carport and have someone hold him up to see grandpa's new blue truck. Funny little man.

This is grandpa's tractor. We loved it. But when Grandpa fired it up for a test run, the engine made such noise that neither of the kids would get near it.

It snowed too. We woke up on Saturday morning to all this snow. Jenny will know what tree this is. The best climbing tree in grandma and grandpa Groesbecks whole yard. The apricot tree. It always has a zillion apricots on it and I bet by the time my grandma has canned a whole cellar full and grandpa has picked up enough off the ground to match those in the cellar. Both wish the darn thing would have frozen. (they may have gotten their wish this year)

I am a little worried about both my kids. Ry has some cough that sounds a little tight and hard to clear. Gator man hasn't had an appetite for a couple of days. He has had fast poopies and he seems cyanotic and won't sleep well. I made a call in to the ped. But I just feel like something just isn't right. He hasn't had a temp, or a cough, he seems fine in every other way... My mommy alert is sounding...

I'm sorry the kids aren't feeling well-I hope they aren't getting what's been going around. Good luck.

I would call your cardiologist and at least tell him what you are seeing. They might want to see him.

Listen to that Mommy Alert. Kaidence may not be here if it weren't for Heavenly Father giving us that little alert system. I do hate it when it goes off though, because that means that usualy there is a good reason for it. Keep us updated please and we will keep your little man in our prayers. Call me when you have a few, the whole discussion that we had the other day is coming back to haunt me. SCREAM!!!!!

Sorry to hear that the kids are under the weather. You have a top notch Mommy-dar, trust it. I agree with the above poster that God gives us that radar for a reason. It was that uncomfortable sense that something wasn't right that sent me to the hospital at 1:30 in the morning when I was 26 weeks along with the twins and you know how that one ended up.

And then sometimes the Mommy-dar goes haywire and we can just be grateful that we were worried for nothing. Hopefully it will be the 'worried for nothing' thing for you too.

Brynnie Brynn (as Logan has so cutely named you) I am worried too! I could see that you just weren't your normal, happy self this morning. You looked tired and Im sure it is because if you have sick kids you probally haven't had much rest. (And to think, you still prepared an amazing volcano) So, what can I do for you? Did you get a script for the flagyl so we can get the fast poopies cleared up? ALWAYS REMEMBER to trust the mommy instinct. Some kiddos NEVER get fevers and most are so resilient that even though something is wrong they still play/act like normal. You are so good to stay on top of it. Can I help you with something PLEASE? How bout some chocolate or icecream or LIMON chips??? Call me and let me know. Nope, I'll call you.

That sounds just like Owen's tummy bug from the lat two weeks. I took him in to cardiology, the pediatrician and the ER. Always follow mommy's instincts! :)

Praying it's just a bug and will clear up on it's own.

I couldn't see the pics from the vaca.. but sounds like fun! :)
