Rude Awakening

Blake didn't feel very well this past weekend. He had a small temprature and a belly ache so we kept him home from church. He felt better this morning except his belly hurt a little bit so I had him get dressed for school. While I was downstairs helping Malynda get ready blake started screaming "My Bumb hurts!! My Bumb hurts!!" I went up stairs to check on him and I asked him if it hurt inside his bumb or on the outside. (I know I am being graphic). He said that it hurt like a needle hitting it. I checked him out and saw a bee sting. I told him to take off his pants and sure enough he had 3 stings right on the back of his upper thigh. I shook his pants and the bee fell out. I killed the bee and tried to comfort him. I told him I had to put some mud on it but he didn't want to wear Mud to school. So I remembered the penny trick. If you put a penny on a bee sting it will take away the pain. So I held the penny on each mark and he felt a little better. He was still wimpering and so I told him that he should tell his teacher that a bee bit his bumb 3 times. He started laughing and forgot about his belly hurting. He ran down stairs and told Keith and Keith started laughing as well.

snow daze

We had a power outage due to an Ice Storm, 10" of snow, and sleet. Finally the kids were able to play outside and slide along the ice covered snow. Ella is now 19 months old and wearing my boots.

A Weekend from snow

We went to a hotel on Friday and came home on Sunday in time for church. The kids went bowling where Malynda beat me once. We went swimming almost all day Saturday and a good portion of Friday. We ate Pizza and played at the mall.
