Sick Days

Sick Days

Unfortunately, Remi caught the flu bug. One Friday evening, I noticed her eyes looked sick (Tyler laughed, but this is mom-truth, right? You can see it!), and then she wouldn’t eat her dinner…and she got fussy. I checked, and she had fever.

She got worse overnight, so on Saturday morning, we headed to the new pediatric urgent care here (thank goodness for them!).  Poor girl just wanted to lay down. I rubbed her back waiting on the doctor, and when the doctor came in all masked up, I knew her flu test was positive.

She had flu A. The doctor just told us to hydrate and treat symptoms.

Poor girl got sick in the car on the way home (probably just the fever medicine on an empty tummy) and then rested for a couple days.


We did lots of snuggling and watching Toy Story 4.


And then she passed something on to me, because I had fever for a day or so.  My flu test was negative, but I felt pretty crummy.


But the sweetest was when I was sick, she told me that she had some surprises for me to make me feel better- then she brought me this book and a necklace. It sure did help!


Thankfully, Tyler stayed well and we are allll better in time for Thanksgiving.

Picture Perfect Memories

Picture Perfect Memories

I have snapped some pretty perfect moments lately.

Let’s start with this silly little girl. She’s so funny.  She loves laying in her tent (with her sleeping bag and pillow) and watching movies. This particular day she also needed her Skye blanket as well.


She and I wore our cowboy boots to church one Sunday and she said she also needed a cowboy hat. We didn’t have one….but you better believe her Gigi solved that problem!

She picked out this black hat (not the pink one!).


We ran over to Poteau really quickly one Saturday because my mom wanted a shirt she saw on Queen B’s instagram….and Remi needed to take a picture with the car. It has a crown and eyelashes and she loved it.


Tyler went hunting/camping, so we went to see our friends. Too much time at home alone and we go crazy. Tara hosted us for a craft night and let the girls play (I mean, destroy) her home.

Remi (who got hot and took off her shirt) and Amelia were precious watching TV.


And Tara made us a great spread of snacks. Hanging low key with friends is my fave. And Caroline brought bubbly. Yes, please.


And Tara taught me how to use her Cricut to make decorations for a wedding shower at work. Now I need one! Loved it!



Partying it Up!

Partying it Up!

Somehow, like every kid we know has a fall birthday! (Or at least that’s how it seems) We’ve been partying it up lately, with some weekends having multiple parties!

We started this weekend with a fun Monkey House birthday for our friend Whitleigh (from daycare).

Remi lives her best life at the Monkey House– she just loves it!


On the way there, she declared that she was gonna climb the big slide (this is one that she’s been too scared to do before) and SHE DID IT. She didn’t love the second time up and down it, but I was proud of her for doing it.


She also loved the juice boxes. With the birthday girl!


Saturday afternoon, the weather was SO NICE, so we made Remi play outside. She likes to play outside, but for some reason this day, it took some nudging. She was happy inside with her playdoh. But once we got outside, we had fun with the soccer ball (and her new sunglasses, which she wore upside down).


We also took the opportunity to put up a Christmas decoration outside. It was just after Halloween, so too early for me to want to decorate our whole house, but this guy is more hunting season than Christmas, so he went up. We named him Ted.


And then I caught these two being so silly. She loves her daddy so much.


On Sunday, after church and nap, we got to go celebrate one of our favorite girls, Lillian!

They had a Fancy Nancy dress up tea party- which was so fun!

The girls were a bit older (6ish), so Remi and Amelia weren’t always into what they were doing. The two of them would sneak off to play and drop back in. It was fun.


It was also fun to have some momma time while the girls played.


Lil’s brothers are so fun, and they dressed up for present time! ha!

Silly Trey…


And Remi got in on the action, too!


She LOVES Lil’s brothers. And they are so sweet to her. Cooper was being so silly with her.


We have two more parties (on the same day!) in a couple weeks. SO much fun to be had!
