Never fails, when you have big plans for a day, that a kid gets sick. Landyn has a stuffy nose today so I kept him home from church-just in case. He has no fever, just a stuffed nose. We are surprising him tonight and taking him to see Disney Playhouse at the Convocation Center; so we want him to rest and get a good nap. He will be so excited to see Handy Manny-he loves anything with tools (and guitars, trucks, cars, etc)This picture tells all!

Also, he has his yearly cardio appointment Thursday at AR Children's Hospital in Little Rock. Really need to not be sick for this appt. They will be doing an EKG and Echo to check for progress on the hole in his heart closing on it's own. So far, there hasn't been any changes. But we believe in miracles, you know! Dr. Best has said since he was 12 mo old that he believes he will be a candidate for the catheter procedure and not have to have open heart surgery. We're praying this is still the route he will take if surgery is indeed needed.

Will post Disney pics tomorrow!

Friday Favorites & a picture

I took this pic when we were in ElDorado for my grandmothers funeral. It was raining that morning and the boys were so disappointed they couldn't swim that morning. We stood outside on the patio area a watched it rain while we ate breakfast. I love how they are both standing the same way! Not even posed!

1. Friday-just the name of the day of the week brings joy to my heart
2. Husbands-especially ones who bring home dinner when their wives are still recovering from BAD kidney infections!
3. Pajamas-do I need to elaborate?
4. Air Conditioner-so glad ours is finally fixed. Not fun to not have air when you are running a fever and not feeling very well.

That's all for now. Hope to rest all weekend and get to feeling better (with no back pain)

Recently heard at my house

Landyn-hey, don't turn off the shower!
Jason-we have to get the poop out first before we can shower

I'm just pretending I didn't hear any of that conversation!

Our new theme song

"God told Noah to build him an arky, arky"
I think this song pretty much sums up the weather here in Jonesboro! I should teach my kids this song today. And, there is more rain on the way. Yipee!!

Gotta find something positive today or I will go crazy

A dinner out with friends

We had so much fun last night. We went to chili's with some friends. Their son is in my class; she is our pharmacist; Jason and Shawn have never met, but the instantly hit it off! They both hunt and stuff. They've even planned a big hunt/trapping trip this winter. Landyn and Ethan had fun playing with little cars he brought for them to play with. (Kordyn didn't want to go so he got to have a special evening alone with Mamie and Pete) Amy and I just enjoyed talking and having more than 5 minutes to do that in! But, then it was almost 11 before 2 boys got in the bed! And, after the 3 glasses of tea that I drank, I was up until 1 am. I feel a nap coming after church today.

It's raining, It's pouring

I can't think of another week quite like the past one. It's rained some EVERY day!!Does the sun still even exist?

No one else got sick last week after Jason so hopefully we are good for awhile. This is a busy week coming up. The fair and Jason has the Truman duck something next Saturday. Tonight,we are meeting friends at Chili's for dinner. They are really a great funny couple and their son is in my class. The men have never met but I think they will get along well-both big outdoorsmen! Hope to laugh alot!!

sickness all around

Well, first our desktop computer is wigging out, then, we lost our laptop-it died last night. Then, Jason got up with stomach bug; no swine flu thank goodness!! Now, wonder who's next? Landyn had it last weekend in Branson with my parents so he should be safe. Kordyn's had a head cold but he is better. Guess that just leaves me. Not gonna say I won't get it and that I have a immunity to it because then I will wake up with it tomorrow!
Hopefully, this is it for the Turner family!
btw, I think I how to fix the computer-reset tthe modem and Jason's new mini notebook computer is working great so I'll plug in the desktop tomorrow and see how that works.

Quiet Weekend

It's been so quiet around here this weekend. My parents took the boys to Branson with them. However, I got a text Saturday morning about 8:30 that said no more grandkid trips. Landyn woke up at 5 am throwing up and continued several more times throughout the day. Kordyn woke up with a really bad stuffed up nose and sore throat. I felt guilty enjoying my quiet house! Today, both are better and headed back home this evening. It may be a while before my parents take them off on another trip again.
