Happy Randoms

Here we are stuck at home again with some flu virus. Shocking...or not, if you look at our track record. All I know is this one's a doosy, and my poor little guy is all but dehydrated. He's thrown up over 20 times in a 24 hr. period and eaten NOTHING!!! We're verging on needing IV Fluids if a prescription I just picked up doesn't help, but i'm thinking it will. I've learned that watching your little kids sick and feeling COMPLETELY helpless is one of the most painful parts of motherhood....Happy Mother's Day :)
This is kind of turning into a depressing post and it really wasn't meant to be that way, I just hand some time on my hands to do a little blogging! My darn mood just goes straight south when one of my kids is down and out. So, to happier times we go....

Here's some of our happy moments over the last month...
1)BATH TIME! Especially when you get in some good quality shaving time? Or when the kids are having so much fun that they hang out in there for over an hour. I LOVE when they get along so well!!!
2) Brynlee is officially consumed in all things princess related. It started with the "wonderwear" and has taken off from there...Let the shopping and nails begin.
3) Seriously good deals are enough to make me happy ANY day!!! I should have shared this gem of a deal when it was still applicable, but non-the-less, it makes my happy list. All items in picture were purchased for $3.50. And that's not all, I all also got a $5 target gift card. So really I made $1.50 by taking these things of their hands!!! And yes my family will be regular:)
4) Yellow Rain Boots, and the undying love that Carson has developed for them. Hopefully they still fit next winter because we've had nothing that can be considered a real rain storm since he got them. Still I think they look darn cute on him.
5) Post Busy season get-aways to Palm springs with my hot little hubby!! This really deserves a post of it's own, but it also deserves a top spot on the happy of the month list...
We met up with Nathan and Janelle and had the best, most relaxing weekend ever! I really LOVE Palm springs in the Spring....good shopping, good food, good sun! Oh, and massages...........HEAVEN!!!!

6) And of Course Great Moms. I have the greatest mom and mother-in-law EVER!!!! And we were so blessed to all spend the day together yesterday. Really it's too bad that everyone can't have my two moms, because i'm pretty sure they don't get any better!!!! LOVE THEM BOTH!!!

Can your kids get any cuter? I am so sorry you guys have the flu again...do you ever make it a week without one of them being sick? And, yes. That is the little sister I tried to hook up with Russell. I still can't believe she's old enough to be living on her own and married!!!

I am so sorry to hear about Carson! You guys have had your fair share of sickies. I am so glad that you guys got to get away and had so much fun. Oh, and thank you so much for those YUMMY ice cream treats. I think they are the reason my pants don't fit to well anymore :)
