this little bat of mine

This little bat got croup the other night & the next night Abe followed suit.  I am new to this croup / asthma territory & it has sent me through 2 rolls of tums.  Top it off with a broken sewer pipe for 2 days that made our house smell like you know what.  The most shining moments of my life will not include the past 48 hours.  It was ugly , the mom I said I would never be kind of ugly.
If you haven’t had to deal with croup in you kids before, thank your lucky stars.  The nights usually go something like this 1:00 am, bark bark bark- Is that a dog?? No it is your child’s throat closing in.  You rush in to hear the bark & the strider shallow breathing.  Then its only natural to argue with your spouse, & run around like a chicken with your head cut off.  Should we go to the ER?  No take her outside first, okay. Outside she’s cold get a blanket- back outside, back inside time for a popsicle, get ice water!!  Back outside, should we go to the ER? Are her lips blue??  If we can wait it out with home remedies that will save us $300 bucks. Okay lets wait…… unless her lips turn blue.
FYI: Croup is a reaction to a virus, some kids get it some don’t.  So the same virus in one kid may just be a cold while in another it can cause croup, kids with asthma seem to be more likely to get it.
If your wondering whether that brown tree in the back ground is a Halloween decoration, it’s not it’s just dead.  We use what we have around here….

Some friends invited us to the Red Butte Gardens After Dark Festival.  I have to say I was really impressed.. The kids made magic potions,  masks, Aborigine dolls,  & Japanese lanterns that they then launched into the pond.  Very creative & the kids loved it.

Sometimes it pays to live in Kaysville, your 2 year olds having a tantrum in the car- want to get out & feed the horsey? Easy fix, even if just temporary…. Or now he may have a tantrum to get out & feed the horse every time we pass one, what have I done???

I have some new cards that I have been meaning to post (& holiday ones in the works)
Here is the first newbie, mustache girl. She was actually taken
from a section of the creative antics piece.  Mustache girl made me smile
so much I thought she deserved her own card to  help make others smile too 🙂
Tonight I am judging reflections at Snow Horse Elementary.
 Which I am actually really excited about, it inspires me. 
I love getting to see how creative & uninhibited kids are
– except when I can tell a parent did most of the piece…. hate that.
More new stuff to come!

black island farm – harvest days

Esmae’s pumpkin had a little white spot, eveyone kept telling her it had character- so that night when she showed Josh her beloved pumpkin she said “it’s a character”.

 the kids loved this dried corn, maybe we should rethink the sand pile?

 Abes favorite – we rode it 3 times, these were old water barrels- genius I thought….
They had tons of these slides all around, Abe stuck to the little ones 
but Es loved the biggest one it was pretty high.
After 3 hours of non stop fun @ 4 dollars kid (including a hayride & picking a pumpkin)
I would say this place is a better value then a Little Ceasars pizza.

I’m afraid this one is done napping-just shy of two & a half?!!  My late nights working just got a lot  later.
I think it’s either molars coming in, needs tubes in his ears or he is just done, maybe a combo of all three?
Whatever it is not napping doesn’t seem to phase him, Abe has energy to burn.
