A Little Bit Of This and That

Poor little Lilli got a summer something or the other.  We were out and about yesterday running errands and she seemed just fine.  We stopped at the Goodwill and when I got her out of her car seat she felt a little bit hot.  I wasn’t concerned, because she was riding in the sun and it was hot out yesterday.  I figured she was just sweaty.  The kids were so great in the store and they let me look at all the books.  I got a few as well as a yellow chair for Kaleb’s desk, an UBER hippy skirt for me, a Christmas dress for Lilli, two pairs of jammies for Kaleb and a pair of jeans for him as well.

After that we headed over to my sister’s to grab a few things.  When I got Lilli out of the car she still seemed warm and was coughing a little bit.  Hmm.  Kaleb was hungry so I set the kids up on his new bed over there and made something to eat.  My sister came in and said that Lilli’s eyes seemed to be watering.  Sigh.  So i went in there and felt her head and sure enough it was a fever.  We got out the thermometer and I was shocked to see it climb up to 102.3!  She was still acting fine though and I wasn’t going to giver her anything yet.  I gave her some juice and we headed home.  I set her up on our bed and put a few things away.  I checked her temp again and it was 103.  Crap.  I gave her something and she didn’t put up a fight.  She nursed and fell asleep only to wake up about 20 minutes later.  Needless to say it was a rough night and she still isn’t feeling well.  She still has a bit of a fever, but not as bad as last night, so hopefully it will break.

A few weeks ago Kaleb went to camp.  He liked it, but he asked that I not leave him anymore.  Poor guy.  He was very proud of the thing that he made and we have this HUGE paper haging in our house.

He looks so cute with his Wiggles backpack!

We have actually decided hot to send him to pre school and home school instead.  If he asks to got to school, then we will go from there.  He just really doesn’t seem to be ready to go out on his own.  Lilli will be a different story though!  She was more than happy to march in and make herself at home there!

Well little miss needs some snuggles!

The one where she goes on and on…

So call me a bad mom, but I just bribed my kids with tortilla chips so that I could sit down and write a blog. They are organic, but still.

So the end of June brought about our 6th anniversary. Crazy. We took the ferry over to Seattle again. Not before stopping for coffee!

In case anyone wanted to know, Ryan had hot chocolate and mine is my new favorite Pike Place drip. Yum.

We hit the aquarium. Isn’t this guy awesome?

I made a skirt for the day although I am not happy with the waist and am going to remake that when I get a minute. Since no one else can touch my camera I conveniently found a HUGE mirror. LOL. Super crappy picture, but you get the idea of the skirt. People kept walking in front of me giving me funny looks. Sheesh. I just need to toot my own horn by saying that I did it all without a pattern 🙂

We walked around the market and saw this guy.

Then we rode the monorail to get something to eat. SO we get off the monorail and see this. Awesome.

On the way out of Westlake Center I spotted a Bento store, which I REALLY wanted to stop in, but we needed to catch our ferry. Next time. I know that it’s there now.

Had to get the Space Needle in there too.  I LOVE the Space Needle!

So last weekend we had a garage sale.  It was so hot out, but I had fun.  I got burned tough and now have the WORST farmers tan.  Ever.  Sold a lot of stuff, but we plan on having another one after the 4th.  It is really nice to have the garage all cleaned up.

This weekend we are having Lillli’s birthday party!  She’s going to be 2 tomorrow.  It’s really crazy.  I will say that we have hit the terrible two’s.  HARD.  She’s always been more strong willed that Kaleb ever was, but at times it’s down right unbearable.

She’s having a Hello Kitty birthday, which I will admit that I had TONS of fun planning and buying for.  I still need to locate some Hello Kitty mylar balloons.  Once the house is all decorated I will get pictures up.  I also made her outfit, but I still have to finish her hair bows before I will post pictures.

Lets see, what else?  OH Kaleb got into his Pre School class!  We had originally planned on homeschooling, but a few of his friends that he plays with talk about school and he has been really asking about it.  I figured we won’t loose too much with pre school.  We stopped by the other day and he seemed SO excited about it.  It was also the day that my car wouldn’t start.  Ugh, it needed a new ignition switch.  Thank you to all the nice people who helped me out.  The guys at Eagle Tire, I believe it’s called, in Gig Harbor were AWESOME and made sure that my ac was working before they let me drive the car to the dealer.

I think that’s about it.  For now…
