Chloe was sick yesterday, Cam is coughing and Kat is down for the count. She had a 104.8 temp last night, is vomiting and coughing. Her temp is lower tonight, a mere 103.1. She is sleeping and didn't even fuss when everyone but her and I went off to the Halloween Parade:(
It's so bad that when we realized we had no more children's fever reducer last night and I sent hubby to the store ---they had NONE- nothing but empty shelves in the whole children's medicine section! After he headed to another store and found some the cashier saw the juice and fever reducer for kids. She said "let me guess, fever, cough, vomiting" hitting the nail right on the head.
I was mean enough to take a pic of the sick one, actually she didn't care. She looked sicker than I have ever seen her, look at those red cheeks---- Poor girl.

3 days down. We are looking at about 90 days till Letter Of Approval (LOA) meaning China accepts us to be parents of Chloe's bro!!
Oh yeah, uh huh, wow weeee yippee, we are happy here tonight & I needed some JOY.
My mother's husband (not gonna pretend we were close) died suddenly Wed night. Please people I'm gonna say two things- let your family know where your important papers are, and HAVE A WILL.
Hubby and I celebrated our wedding anniversary today, I was too drained to go out so we had pizza with our kiddos and enjoyed a quiet evening at home. We are so thankful we have one another, we feel deeply blessed.
Isn't our guy just too cute for words??

I am glad that they still call me "mom" not - "the old lady, old woman, ancient," etc. Guess they know better, my foot can still reach all of their tushies.
So far it's been a quiet day, I cleaned out the bathroom drawers, a big to-do on my list of things to accomplish with my free time while everyone is in school:)
I got some great gifts with a puzzling card. It says "you deserve the best then has an added - "ME" on there. No self confidence issues for my hubby. I'll include a picture of this "best man" for you all to see and feel jealous that I have "the best" there is. At least he thinks so, huh? I just laughed at that, since he really is the BEST:) At least for me:)
Isn't he just too cute??
No big plans for my day, I'm too big to expect a fuss, and really a quiet day is right up my alley:)
I want lots and lots of travel money for the boys for MY birthday gifts:) It's really all I need, to go get these brothers and get them home asap. Our costs are covered till travel time, we have been working on selling some things to help get as much money saved as possible.
There now you all know what to get me, ha ha!! I even started the new "Chip In" I forgot today was the end date for it so I had to start a new one. I know these boys will be as big a blessing as the rest. At least I know by my next birthday we will have them home:) YIPPEEEEE!

Even with no school for 3 days and illness, the girls did manage to entertain themselves with Chloe wanting to pull Kat around by the hair- oops, I mean, style Kat's hair for her and this was the end result ?? Yikes, not seeing a hairdresser career in Chloe's future:)
