Birthday and our week...

These were all taken last evening as we celebrated Grace's birthday.
My kids have been sick this week with the cocksackie virus(aka hand, foot and mouth disease). I always thought that term sounded not so nice...it's a nasty little virus that causes painful mouth sores (they didn't get them anywhere else fortunately)and a fever. William had it much worse than Grace but they are finally doing better...he was truly miserable. The above pic is Mr. Will eating what he's had most of the week...popsicles. They sure do help sore throats to feel better...

Grace celebrated in style with a family party. The gift that was at the top of her wish list was an American Girl doll called Kit...she was thrilled when she opened it. She also got some accessories, a little desk and scooter for Kit and the 'must have' in my book...a doll wardrobe to hold all the clothes and teeny tiny things that I seem to step on in her room! In a little over a week we'll celebrate her special day again with a big party with friends, more family and our wonderful neighbors...she can't wait! :)

OWIE! Mya had HF&M and it was one of the worst things we had to deal with. We had a wonderful mouthwash to help. Nasty taste, good relief! Happy Birthday Gracie! Hope you are feeling better now.

Oh, I just feel like I was there at the party with these gorgeous images!

These kids just steal my heart everytime I see them.

Hoping they are feeling better and that those ice pops really did the trick!

Happy, happy birthday Grace! And I have it on good authority (Tonggu Grammy) that each child is only ever sick on his or her birthday one time... just ONCE. Which means you are now free and clear. And so, too, is the Tongginator (ear infection on her fourth - canceled party and nighttime pediatrics visit).

Time sure does fly, doesn't it? Birthdays, sickness, they're all precious memories.
