Family Moo Update..

Although I don't live in an area that experiences a noticeable season change, I still get the feeling of fall. This is my most favorite time of year. For the last 6 or so years my good friends hosts a yearly pumpkin carving party. I have attended all of them but 1 and this year will be another year I will have to miss. My little man has the flu and although he was not swabbed for H1N1, that is what the doctor's are say he has. He has been with fever since Monday and I have been house bound. It has been a tough week. Mason is only 21 months and is basically a walking germ!! His hands are constantly in his mouth and of course he wants to be held all the time. I am walking around with hand sanitizer and spraying Lysol on all the toys. I need to remember to buy a nicer scented Lysol this one just is stinky!! It goes without out saying but I am a bit overwhelmed and my house is a mess.

Through all this I have gleaned a cute moment. We got a Barbie Catalog in the mail which has some pretty amazing collector Barbies with some pretty hefty price tags. I gave the catalog over to Abigail figuring she would enjoy looking at it. Well, she was dress up in her pretty dress, carrying her handbag and catalog. She turned to Mason, showed him the catalog and said" Let's talk about hairstyles".. I have no idea where she got that from, but it brought a smile to my face and it was exactly what I needed.

Now I am just hoping and praying the rest of us don't get sick..

So sorry to hear about Mason. I hope he starts to feel better soon. A little girl in Kya's class was out for almost 3 weeks with it. I pray that the rest of you can remain healthy.

Who is having the pumpkin carving thingy, Ron? Sounds like a lot of fun. I am hoping we can get some pumpkins this weekend to carve. The a/c went out in my van, so it will be in the shop most of the day tomorrow, which means we will be house bound too. Hopefully, we can go to the pumpkin patch in the evening.

Your cards are cute. You are doing an excellent job, especially with your limited supply.

Okay, I have talked enough on here. I guess this means I should have just picked up the phone, but I know you are busy with a sick baby. Hope to talk to you soon.

I know this year is just so bad with all the flu and H1N1. I hope Mason gets well soon and that you all don't get sick in the process. Take care!
