Week Three

 I am finally doing my post for this last week.  It was an exhausting week.  Caroline started running a fever on Saturday.  They were out of school on Monday for MLK day, and Caroline was just a lump on the couch.  Her fever got up to 103.2 that afternoon.  Tuesday her fever went back up to 103.4.  Since she was going to be missing school for 2 days and with her temp getting so high 2 days in a row, I decided I would take her to the doctor the next day.  Wednesday morning arrived and the fever was gone.  We headed to the doctor anyway.  I figured if nothing else, I could get her cough checked out.  She has had a horrible cough since the beginning of December.  They did a chest x-ray to rule out pneumonia.  The doctor said she probably had a virus and a sinus infection.  She was given an antibiotic and we went home.  The fever came back that afternoon.  Luckily, there was no school on Thursday or Friday due to weather (and illness).  There were 118 kids absent at their school on Wednesday.  That is an entire grade level!  This gave Caroline a few more days to feel better without having to miss school.

So...on to the snow day.  We did not get much snow - maybe an inch or so.  I was happy that the kids were not begging to go outside first thing that morning.  We did eventually head out for a few minutes.  Caroline was still not feeling well and it was so cold.  We were not out there very long.

Here are the girls in their cute hats Nanny and Papa got them in Alaska.

 Nothing like a little taste...

 She was trying to scrape up enough for a snowball, but this was not the right kind of snow for that.

So, she just threw it in the air.

I try to not put pictures of myself on here, but here I am "enjoying" the beautiful weather.  I am not a fan of the cold!

Now it is Kayla's turn.

 Kayla attempted to do a little ice skating

 That did not work out so well....

They had a good time playing outside, but they did not complain at all when I told them it was time to go inside!

Friday night Kayla went to a birthday party.  They all went to a spa and got manicures and pedicures.  This was Kayla's first time to do that.  She was so excited and had a wonderful time.  She is very pleased with her nails.
Until next week...

Love the pics - so cute to see the girls making snow angels and then see the finished product. Glad you added your picture as well. You are a good mother to go out in the snow to play (or at least take pictures for us all to enjoy).

Aunt Kathryn said... the pic of you the best! Come to San Antonio...we never get snow.
