Good morning!

It has been a long week. I have had several kids with the croup, and they are all taking turns with it, so there have been some long nights. Then, because they are such nice kids, they are trying to share it with me. Today Chet was coughing, so I am sure tonight will be his turn to try to sleep through the barking cough. That is all the whining I am going to do about it, though.

Chet's leg isn't hurting him, but now it shakes. His doctor's office is 6 hours away, so I am checking to see if there is a Children't Hospital in Springfield I can take him to to get counts done and make sure everything is still good. He looks good, though, (isn't pale or lethargic) and that is a good sign. I will post more when I know for sure. (Big Chet... I don't have your email address! Will you send it to me when you get a chance?)

Mom was here all weekend, and we got to spend more time visiting this time. It was heartbreaking to see her leave to go home again. ((Mom)) I love you.

There has been good news this week, too. Jack has been hired full time out here in our neck of the woods... finally!!! Wooooooohoooooooo! He got home last night, and it is a huge relief to know he is here to stay this time! We went and bought a truck for him that we are picking up tomorrow, so check back for those pictures. Today we have to go get him some thermals and warm socks to wear while he is outside. It is getting chilly out there!

I have a huge pile of work to get done in the next couple of days. I also have a page for the sketch on the Deluxe blog, and a color page for the color blog I want to get posted. I will try to get those up tonight.

Mom bought the kids a Clue game, so I played a couple of rounds with the younger kids the other night. They had a ton of fun, and I enjoyed it although I was tired! It is kind of funny to play a game you haven't played since you were a kid! Todd decided he didn't want to be one of the suspects, he wanted to be the murdered person, John Boddy. So everytime somebody made a guess about the who, where, and with what, he laid down dead.

I need to go now, but here are a couple of pics I took of Beth the other day in case you need a dose of cuteness in your life today!

How adorable is she in that hat and coat! She IS just the dose of cuteness I needed today! Totaaly made me smile big. :o) I'm so glad to see you post. I was getting worried about you. I hope the icky bug leaves the house for good. I sure hope Chet's leg is okay. I love playing games with my kids...so fun! Can't wait to see your work. :o)

Hey Jenn,

I am sorry to hear all the kids have been sick. I am glad to hear from you guys though. Can you please tell my brother that I e-mailed him a couple of times to see how he was doing I know he was sick a while back and he NEVER RESPONDED! Kick his butt for me please! I am super glad to hear his back at home with the family and safe and sound. I love you all! Please have Jack get ahold of me.

Thanks and lots of love
