Luke and I were walking into the kitchen last night to get his medicine when I spotted a mouse darting across the floor. I grabbed him, jumped on a chair and called for Matt. He had seen it too and was trying to catch it. The whole time Matt was moving the stove and fridge Luke and I stayed on the chair. He kept standing up on my lap looking over the back of the chair at Matt saying "Uh-oh!, uh-oh!". What a cutie...

A New Week

A new week is here...thankfully! Last one was a bit rough. Luke came down with a BAD cold Saturday night after a fun weekend of playing in Marblehead. He got to see family, eat at Pizza Hut (all over him!!!), play at the park and go fishing/a bit of swimming in the pond. Fun weekend. Rough next week.

Monday he had a fever as high as 104.3 at one point. All he wanted to do was lay on my lap all day. I took him to the doctor, but they weren't sure what was wrong so he had to have a blood culture done there and then Matt and I had to run his urine sample up to the hospital at 8 that night.

The next day he fell on his toy barn and busted his top lip good! It scared me to death because his whole mouth was full of blood!

Tuesday night Matt and I wake up at 2:30am to a mouse in our register. The next morning Matt saw the thing running around the house 3 times! He caught it on the 3rd run. Good thing because I couldn't stop crying (I never knew I would be so scared of a mouse).

Thursday morning Matt and I both wake up with Luke's cold and the doctor calls to tell us Luke has a bladder infection. Poor little guy!

By Friday the antibiotics were kicking in and Luke was back to his old goofy playful self. Unfortunately Matt and I were miserable.

But today Luke is doing great and the doctor gave me antibiotics for a sinus infection. By tomorrow I'm hoping I feel much better too!

My 2nd "Classic" complete!

I just finished reading Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson a few minutes ago. It was wonderful! It kept me at the edge of my seat and I just wanted to keep reading! I have not read adventure/suspense books since probably 8th or 9th grade. For the last 10-12 years (I can't believe I'm that old!) I have read mostly non-fiction or Christian fiction. I really enjoy those also, but this was such a nice treat! I'm excited to get on to my third classic for the year. My goal is 5 classic books for 2009 and so far I have read Pride and Prejudice and Treasure Island. Does anyone have any good suggestions?????

Our New Little Nephew

This is our new little nephew, Samuel Robert. He was born Thursday evening. He's a handsome little guy with lots of beautiful dark hair like his mommy!

The Completed Sidewalk

I finally am getting around to posting pictures of our completed sidewalk. It looks so nice! Matt did a great job. He transplanted hyacinths from his grandma's house, split our big daylilly into six smaller ones and then today planted some hostas in there as well. Exciting!
