Singing cards

Last week, Kate and Brooks got some singing cards from GranGran and PawPaw. They got a kick out of them, as you can see. At first, neither knew what do with them. But, it didn't take long. I think the batteries will get used up on these.




Kate "reading" her card to Mouse



Here is a very typical expression of Brooks!!

This weekend was a blur, as always. It started with me getting a headache on Friday night. No big deal, just another headache. I had sure wanted to go to Lowes and do some flower shopping, but the forecast was calling for rain anyway, so gardening wasn't going to happen this weekend. Saturday, in the midst of the rain, we attended a wedding in Montgomery. It was beautiful and the bride and groom were so happy. So reminiscent of us... almost 12 years ago... seems like yesterday... I digress.

Afterwards, Scott planned a pizza party for the Bible Bowl participants at the church bldg. The kids had fun, and Scott was pleased. He really has worked hard this year getting the kids prepared. Hopefully that will pay off at Convention in April.

Last night I woke up with a killer headache. Then Scott woke up with congestion in his head and chest. We were pitiful in the middle of the night. After taking Lortab (that's all I had in powerful medicine), I slept some - but my headache really didn't improve much. After getting up, it was clear that it was no better, so off to Pri-med I went. After being there over 2 hours, they gave me a pain shot that had my head feeling better in 15 minutes. Plus a prescription to take if it comes back. It is bothering me some right now, but I think I will take some Tylenol and see what happens.

The kids are doing fine. Every day, it seems that they are playing better together. Little victories, right? We are near being playmates, with glimpses of cooperation. And, I think that the spankings are finally starting to pay off. They are beginning to put it together... "if I don't do what Mama says, I will get a spanking..." Granted, these breakthroughs are sporadic, but I feel like I am getting somewhere! Finally getting somewhere.

And, Kate has had dry pullups in the morning for 2 days in a row!!!

I was at PriMed last Sunday with bad head pain! They gave me Toradol and that is some really good stuff! I felt better in no time, but I wasn't sleepy. It was great.
I had to have a CT scan of my head to rule out aneuryism(sp?), tumors, and such, but they called Friday and said all was normal.
Have you seen a neurologist or tried some migraine meds to see is you suffer from those? It is worth the trouble to find out and stop the pain, if you can.
♥love you♥

They are getting so big! Even since I saw them at Sophia's birthday, especially Brooks!

I hope you are feeling better. We enjoyed the pizza party and appreciate Scott putting that together.
