Fun times



Last night Caleb and I babysat Merci so Josh and Donna could do something together for Donna's birthday (go wish her a happy one!). They dropped Merci off yesterday around 2:30 and Mike and Amy got to watch Ethan =). We had so much fun! Caleb was at gaurd duty until 5:00 and came home and my parents took all of us out to dinner to Red Lobster yumm yumm. I don't think I've ever seen Merci eat so much! She was very energetic last night but started to feel very worn out around 7. She had also told me earlier that day that she had a sore throat. I didn't really think too much of it since she still had a lot of energy and was giggling and having fun. She stayed the night but started coughing up a storm around 6 this morning. She sat up and then I heard a very very wet cough. She covered her mouth and looked at me in horror. Uh-oh I thought. "Do you need to throw up?" I asked. She just nodded and continued to look at me in horror. You know what it's like to hold vomit in your mouth 'till you reach the bathroom? Yeah...ewwwww. So I called Josh and Donna and they came and got her. Poor girl! She had strep not too long ago. I felt so bad, she looked like she felt miserable. Miserable but sooo adorable =). Keep her in your prayers and pray she doesn't have strep again. I've heard that if kids have recurring infections like that the doctor often reccomends that they have their tonsels out =(. Mike and Amy, I hope things went better with Ethan! But we still had fun yesterday. We love you Merci-poo and we are praying that you feel better! Look at that cutest little flower girl! Oh, and I hope you had a nice birthday Donna!

You know what really helps children feel better? Yes, You guessed correctly - cookie dough (see my blog).
