Cough? Yes, a little during the day. Some at night.
Fever? All day Friday. Saturday no, Sunday night-yes, Monday night-yes, Tuesday morning at doctor's office, YES! 101.2!
VERY CRANKY, MOODY, CRYING, NO SLEEPING GIRL? YES!
She gets checked out by the doctor:
Her cold is starting to move down, but it is not the source of her fever. From her heart rate and fever pattern, it says that she has an infection. The cause of the infection?
This may be too much information? Sorry! Stop here then!
Constipation! Since Carli has become potty trained, her #2's have not been as frequent as before and here lately, she has had more issues and has decided that it hurts to "go", so she doesn't go! It's been quite frustrating for us and she's been MISERABLE! Totally not her self! Soooo..LONG doctor's visit - story short, she has an antibiotic to take for ten days. Then, we will work on her going poop with another medicine. Wish us luck!
These are some pictures from my cell phone that I took while waiting on our doctor. The view from our room...the hospital that Carli was born in. She enjoyed seeing the helicopter land on top!

Every four years, when it's Inauguration Day, I love to sit in front of the tv and watch all of the festivities. It's all so interesting! I love hearing all the different facts and traditions. I actually missed the swearing in of President Obama, and I missed half of his speech because I just HAD to go to Dillard's and get my free Lancome mascara! The line wasn't too bad and it went quickly. Once I realized that you could only get one product, I then did what every other lady in line did...went to Macy's...to get another one! The line there was crazy! But hey, it was FREE! So, to go along with Joni's birthday gift, she got my other mascara!

Next, it was time for manicures and pedicures. I originally was only going to do her toenails, but then she showed me that she could sit still and do her fingernails too. She's in love with her "red toes! PINK fingers!"
Since the boys have been home, they have talked my ear off about their trip to Bryan. They really had a good time and Mimi and Grandma both said that they didn't want to come home.

Now this is not a bashing or making fun of post about Anthony, this is just me stating the facts. All I said was, "I wonder sometimes?" ;)
Remember last week, Anthony had left his car unlocked, with his cell phone inside, in our driveway overnight and his cell phone got stolen? Lesson learned! He has been learning to LOCK HIS DOORS! Okay, now yesterday (WEDNESDAY) he was coming home from work and stopped to check the mail. The mailboxes are at the end of our street. His mailbox key is not on his car key ring. It just stays in his car. So, he gets out of his car, the car is running (do you see where this is going?) and he shuts the door. Well what do ya know...the car LOCKED! Let's just fast forward to over an hour, maybe closer to two...his car sat locked, keys inside it, RUNNING, while Anthony waited on the locksmith to come. You might wonder where the spare key was? Hmm, ME TOO!! And all I can say is, $149.00! YEP!

My lil' cupcake neice, AMY is the BIG ONE! With all babies, that first year just goes incredibly fast! To think, she looked like this one year ago ... and now, she looks like this...
She's quite spunky and she's always got a smile! What a sweet sweet girl!

I woke up to Carli crying (she was fine, just crying in her sleep). When I came back to my room, I looked to see what time it was. My alarm clock was off, in fact, everything in just my room was off. So, I walked into the bathroom where my cell phone was, to check the time. When I opened it, I saw that I had a text message from Anthony that was sent at 1:47am...HUH? So I looked at Anthony asleep in our bed, then looked at the NAUGHTY MESSAGE! I hurried and woke him up and asked him if he sent this to me, knowing he wouldn't send me that, but still I asked. After searching the house for his cell phone, trying to call it (it was dead or turned off), He realized that it was in his car. He went out to his car, NO CELL PHONE! Everything else was in his car. He had left his cell phone in his car, with the DOORS UNLOCKED! So, then the next thing we think about is, if whoever stole his cell phone, text me the naughty message, then WHO ALL ELSE IN ANTHONY'S NUMBERS DID HE SEND ONE TOO? OH NO! Well, so far we know that only me, one of his tellers, and his cousin got one. If you're reading this and you got a naughty message from Anthony's cellphone...IT WASN'T HIM! Surely anyone would know that! :) Thankfully he only had a few numbers stored in it. So, we cancelled his phone and we go shopping for new ones tomorrow. We'll also be finding out from our provider what numbers were called from his phone. Yes, Anthony has learned his lesson, LOCK YOUR DOORS! DON'T LEAVE ANYTHING IN YOUR CAR!

Well, we tried to get them into the light, so we could re-do their song....only Carli was interested, but soon stopped after she saw Bradley walk away.
Once the singing was over, they noticed Tyler walking through the livingroom with a light saber. It was like a switch went off in the both of them and BAM! WWIII broke out! They HAD to have that light saber!
All calmed down!
Like night and day, huh?
A day with six kids.
