Waiting for the rainbow.

2 weeks ago Nate got sick with a fever, chills, and a cough. Then Gracie got sick, then me. Nate & Gracie tested positive for H1N1 (swine flu) and so we were all treated with Tamiflu. (Love that stuff!)

Well, more than a week later Carson starts getting sick and then 3 days later Sadie. So, the good news is that we have all had the H1N1 virus, so no need to get immunized.

Luckily, we have all had a very mild case of this flu, thank goodness! But, I am seriously ready for a normal routine. The kids are ready to return to school & playgroups. They miss their friends, I miss my friends!

I told Nate last night I am having Target withdrawls, it's been almost a whole week without a popcorn combo!

With all of our time spent at home, Gracie has had lots of practice mastering her 2 new skills: sitting up & scooting. And oh does she scoot.... fast! Time to babyproof my house!

Some fun stuff

I hope everyone has been to see the new baby elephant at the Hogle zoo. She's a doll. I could sit and watch her for hours if I didn't have 3 kids begging me to move on to another animal.
Did you know that elephants nurse their babies for 3-5 years, and they only have 2 baby-feeders (not like cats or cows with zillions of em).
And another big event. A wedding actually. Here is the wedding cake I made to celebrate the OFFICE WEDDING last week. I know, Diego doesn't really look like Jim, but it was either him or Prince Charming and he was too tall.

Went to Vegas to watch BYU vs. UNLV. Well, Nate went to the game with his friends. I stayed and played with Meredith & the kids & ate Cafe Rio, which was fun too.
Oh, and if you want to know what Carson's going to be for Halloween, just come by our house any time, any day. He'll be sporting his skeleton jammies.

Gracie is officially 6 months. I should be a better mom & do a whole post on how big she's getting and all the cool things she can do. Instead I'll just say she's still cute and I can't believe she's 6 months old!
