Still stuck at home!

Well...we still have not reentered the world. Tyler seems to have turned the corner and is just about back to normal. He has a slight runny nose but at least the green gross stuff is gone. Poor little Emma took a turn for the worse over the weekend so I took her back to the doctor on Monday instead of waiting for her recheck appointment on Thursday. She still had a really bad ear infection, which explained why my sweet tempered little girl had been up all night crying. They gave her two shots of a strong antibiotic and told us that it should kick in pretty fast. We have to go back in the morning but judging from her much improved attitude today I think she is on the mend as well. Now, if I could just get her nose decongested I would be the happiest mommy on earth. I am pretty certain that they will both be back to normal by the time mom gets here on Thursday.
Since we have been at stuck at home again this week we have been trying to find fun things to fill our days. Tyler and I have put lots of puzzles together and I am sure that we have read all of the million books that we own. We even finger painted---which went way better than I had thought possible.
The weather was beautiful today. The kids and I spent most of the afternoon in the backyard. Emma has decided the she wants to eat rocks---Debbie I thought only Travis did this!:)

We dug out all of Tyler's old push toys. He hasn't played with any of these in well over a year but since Emma is showing interest in them he suddenly loves them again and they are his favorite!


Check out this hair! Tyler likes to say, "Emma's hair is out of control!"

Oh, I love your stories Sarah. They both scare the crap out of me - and remind me of certain Mason times. I miss you, Marshall and the kids so much. Hugs to everyone from all of us here.

I'm glad Travis isn't the only crazy rock eating kid. Miss you soooo much! Debbie
