Puke, Puke and Puke Some More!!!!

YUCK! That's how Josh and April have been! We had a wonderful weekend, capped off by a stomach bug! Master P vomited at school on Thursday afternoon right before I got there to pick him up. We decided it was just a fluke thing becuase he didn't act sick or throw up anymore. Sunday morning, while still asleep, Baby Girl started puking. She threw up three times in about 20 minutes! But, after that, she was fine. We went to the farm Sunday afternoon and I didn't feel so hot. By the time we got home and got all the kids in the bed I was really starting to feel sick. Josh had to work and soon after he left I started throwing up. I thought that maybe since the kids only threw up like once, maybe I would be so lucky. Not. So. Much. I threw up about 15 times in about 4 hours, no joke. Poor Josh, I was calling him crying every five minutes seriously and he was trying to work. I love him, he always listens to me whine! :) And Mom...I was calling her too, but I decided not to call her as much in case I ended up having to get her to come to the house......welllll......around 1:15ish Baby Girl woke up. I got up and took her to the changing table to change her when all of a sudden I couldn't see!!!! I was about to pass out and my sweet baby was lying there and would fall off the changing table!!! I somehow managed to get a diaper on her and get to the living room and put her down in the floor. (I seriously don't remember any of that!) I found the phone and called Mom to rush over! Finally after I layed in the floor for a while I was ok. Baby Girl thought that it was hilarious that Mimi was over at 2am! She laughed and laughed! After that I didn't puke anymore! Thank goodness! Unfortunately, Josh got it next. :( He seems to feel a little better today though.

One of the first things I have been doing lately when I wake up in the mornings is check on Lola. Yesterday I of course stayed home because I was sick all night. I looked out the back door and she wasn't there. I went outside and didn't see her. Since our backyard is fenced in I was puzzled. So, I asked Mako. ha! I am not kidding! And as soon as I said, "Mako, where's Lola?" he took off running to the very back of the backyard where I couldn't see. I called Josh who was on his way home from work and told him that I thought we had puppies!!! When he got home he walked back there and sure enough...she was having them!!! So he made her a bed in the garage and put her in there. Guess how many we have!!!!!!! 12!!!!!!! Holy freakin' cow! So, needless to say, we will be feeding some puppies ourselves.

Here are some pics of the puppies as well as some of the things we got into this weekend!

We made turkey cookies!

A Little Bit of This, A Little Bit of That

Let me start out by saying that this post has total randomness in it! Ha!

First of all,we are SICK. It started last Wednesday when G-Man woke up and had a sore throat..no fever, and his throat wasn't really even red. So he stayed home from school with Josh. By late that afternoon he started running a temp and he wouldn't even swallow his own spit. Poor baby. So the next morning Josh took him to the doc, he had strep throat and G-man actually wanted a shot at this point..so you KNOW it was bad. He spent the next few days on the couch eating nothing but popcicles and drinking nothing but warm tea. Fast foward a few days and Josh starts having a sore throat..will he go to the doc, heck no. The next afternoon I started feeling that twinge in my throat, so the next day I high tailed it to the doc, strep for me too, and got two shots. When I left I called the hubby and TOLD him that he was going to the doc RIGHT NOW. So, he went and got two shots. Guess what?!?!?! Strep for him too! This morning oh say around 3 am Master P comes into our room, "Mommy, my throat hurts." Great. So this morning I took him to the doc. Bet you can't guess what he has! Strep throat. So the only one safe so far is Baby Girl and supposedly she is too young to catch it, guess we'll see about that! Poor Master P will have to miss his Thanksgiving Feast at school tomorrow. He is really bummed about that. Last Thanksgiving he had to miss out on EVERYTHING because he had pneumonia. Mom picks G-man up from school on Wednesdays and Thursdays and she just told me that yesterday when she picked him up he told her that he wished this strep germ would leave his family and go to someone else's family!

A few days ago I got tired of Josh calling the new dog "doggie". So, I named her Lola. That was one of the first names I came up with and he didn't like it, but obviously he couldn't think of anything better so she is our sweet Lola....and she is VERY Preggo! Poor thing, I feel SO sorry for her. She is HUGE and waddles around. Poor thing. I hope she has an easy delivery...there's no telling how many are in there! Speaking of delivery, my best friend, Jamie, landed her dream job in the labor and delivery unit at the hospital where I delivered our babies! I am SO excited for her. What a fun job!

Now for a funny little story. I went to pick up a few things from the grocery store the other night. As I was coming out, there was a guy in the parking lot trying to sell something to an old lady. I thought to myself, "CRAP! I have to get in the car FAST!" I just about had everything in there when he got to me. He gave me the sob story that he is an aspiring rap artist, his wife is preggo with a little boy due next month, he is just trying to get his music "out there". Well, it's hard for me to say no. So, I gave him $4 and took the CD. All the way home all I could think about was that Josh was going to kill me! ha! So, I get home, start telling the story, make it sound reallll good and then looked at him for a reaction and my butt chewing. He looked at me, smiled and said, "I gave him $5 the other night." Ha! So now we not only have one copy of the soon to be famous rap stars very first album...we have TWO!!!!!

Roll Tide 10-0!!!

Whew! What a game! We knew ahead of time that this would be our toughest game so far this season and LSU was very prepared for us! Luckily, or maybe it was just skill, we pulled it off! I am very excited for our team! We went to Mimi and Pop's to watch the game and man were we rowdy! I don't think I have ever heard so much screaming and yelling and jumping up and down! It was so much fun! This week we play Mississippi State, hopefully we will win once again!

On a not so nice note......Did you see what LSU did?

I can not believe that LSU would condone something like this. If someone tried to do anything like this in T-Town, our cops would be on them like white on rice. Not that our fans would EVER stoop so low... This was the "Nick Saban Burning" that they did at their freakin' pep rally. And, the "scare crow Saban" burned really quick and so then they were all standing there burning a cross.....what retards! That is taking it a little bit too far....in the end, it's just a game people! And, I am sure that Nick didn't think twice about this crap, that's just how he is...Roll Tide!

This Time Last Year.....

OH baby! Geeze! Actually the phone says November 27th so we are a few days off, but still!!! I was HUGE and still had a whole month until she was born! I will post more pics as it gets closer to Baby Girl's 1st Birthday!

Walking and a Confession!

Yea, so, about a month ago Baby Girl was in the floor playing with G-man and she took a couple of steps. Then she stopped. Until this past Tuesday night! She was in the living room playing with her daddy and I was in the kitchen. She decided to come and see what I was up to and just got up and walked in there! Holy crap....why do they have to grow so fast? :( Boo.

Pics to come on that one......

And now for my confession....did you notice all of the blogs I added to "Others that may strike your fancy"? Well, those are pretty much all the blogs I keep up with. Some I read daily, some just every now and then, some I know personally, some I don't. If you want a really good laugh, visit The Mommy Diaries, K-mom is so freakin' funny! If you are very tender-hearted I would not visit He Will Carry Me.....I cry every time I read her blog. Over all, they are all pretty interesting...oh, and I put them in alphabetical order so you can find them easier! Have a peachy day!

For the sake of keeping history on the blog I am going to post this post about what happened yesterday. I want our children to be able to go back and read this thing many years from now, and so I pledge to them to keep up with things even if I don't agree. Without further ado, the news article from our local paper today:

Nation elects black president in landslide
By David Espo The Associated Press
Published: Wednesday, November 5, 2008 at 3:30 a.m. Last Modified: Wednesday, November 5, 2008 at 12:09 a.m.

WASHINGTON Barack Obama swept to victory as the nation's first black president Tuesday night in an electoral college landslide that overcame racial barriers as old as America itself.
The son of a black father from Kenya and a white mother from Kansas, the Democratic senator from Illinois sealed his historic triumph by defeating Republican Sen. John McCain in a string of wins in hard-fought battleground states — Ohio, Florida, Virginia and Iowa.
A huge crowd in Grant Park in Obama's home town of Chicago erupted in jubilation at the news of his victory. Some wept.
McCain called his former rival to concede defeat — and the end of his own 10-year quest for the White House. 'The American people have spoken, and spoken clearly,' McCain told disappointed supporters in Arizona.
Obama and his running mate, Sen. Joseph Biden of Delaware, will take their oaths of office as president and vice president on Jan. 20, 2009.
As the 44th president, Obama will move into the Oval Office as leader of a country that is almost certainly in recession, and fighting two long wars, one in Iraq, the other in Afghanistan.
The popular vote was close, but not the count in the Electoral College, where it mattered most.
There, Obama's audacious decision to contest McCain in states that hadn't gone Democratic in years paid rich dividends.
Obama has said his first order of presidential business will be to tackle the economy. He has also pledged to withdraw most U.S. combat troops from Iraq within 16 months.
Fellow Democrats rode his coattails to larger majorities in both houses of Congress. They defeated incumbent Republicans and won open seats by turn.
The 47-year-old Illinois senator was little known just four years ago. A widely praised speech at the Democratic National Convention, delivered when he was merely a candidate for the Senate, changed that.
Overnight he became a sought-after surrogate campaigner, and he had scarcely settled into his Senate seat when he began preparing for his run for the White House.
A survey of voters leaving polling places on Tuesday showed the economy was by far the top Election Day issue. Six in 10 voters said so, and none of the other top issues — energy, Iraq, terrorism and health care — was picked by more than one in 10.
'May God bless whoever wins tonight,' President Bush told dinner guests at the White House, where his tenure runs out on Jan. 20.
The Democratic leaders of Congress celebrated in Washington.
'It is not a mandate for a party or ideology but a mandate for change,' said Senate Majority leader Harry Reid of Nevada.
Said Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California: 'Tonight the American people have called for a new direction. They have called for change in America.'
Shortly after 11 p.m. in the East, The Associated Press count showed Obama with 338 electoral votes, well over the 270 needed for victory. McCain had 127 after winning states that comprised the normal Republican base.
The nationwide popular vote was remarkably close. Totals from 58 percent of the nation's precincts showed Obama with 51 percent and McCain with 47.9.
Interviews with voters suggested that almost six in 10 women were backing Obama nationwide, while men leaned his way by a narrow margin. Just over half of whites supported McCain, giving him a slim advantage in a group that Bush carried overwhelmingly in 2004.
The results of the AP survey were based on a preliminary partial sample of nearly 10,000 voters in Election Day polls and in telephone interviews over the past week for early voters.
Democrats also acclaimed Senate successes by former Gov. Mark Warner in Virginia, Rep. Tom Udall in New Mexico and Rep. Mark Udall in Colorado. All won seats left open by Republican retirements.
In New Hampshire, former Gov. Jeanne Shaheen defeated Republican Sen. John Sununu in a rematch of their 2002 race, and Sen. Elizabeth Dole fell to Democrat Kay Hagan in North Carolina.
Democrats also looked for gains in the House. They defeated Republican incumbents Rep. Tom Feeney and Ric Keller in Florida, 22-year veteran Chris Shays in Connecticut and Rep. Robin Hayes in North Carolina.
At least two Democrats lost their seats. Rep. Kevin Mahoney fell after admitting to two extramarital affairs while serving his first term in Florida. In Louisiana, Democratic Rep. Don Cazayoux lost the seat he had won in a special election six months ago.
The resurgent Democrats also elected a governor in one of the nation's traditional bellwether states when Missouri Attorney General Jay Nixon won his race.
The White House was the main prize of the night on which 35 Senate seats and all 435 House seats were at stake. A dozen states elected governors, and ballots across the country were dotted with issues ranging from taxes to gay rights.
An estimated 187 million voters were registered, and in an indication of interest in the battle for the White House, 40 million or so had already voted as Election Day dawned.
Obama sought election as one of the youngest presidents, and one of the least experienced in national political affairs.
That wasn't what set the Illinois senator apart, though — neither from his rivals nor from the other men who had served as president since the nation's founding more than two centuries ago. A black man, he confronted a previously unbreakable barrier as he campaigned on twin themes of change and hope in uncertain times.
McCain, a prisoner of war during Vietnam, a generation older than his rival at 72, was making his second try for the White House, following his defeat in the battle for the GOP nomination in 2000.
A conservative, he stressed his maverick's streak. And although a Republican, he did what he could to separate himself from an unpopular president.
For the most part, the two presidential candidates and their running mates, Biden and Republican Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska, spent weeks campaigning in states that went for Bush four years ago.
McCain and Obama each won contested nominations — the Democrat outdistancing former first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton — and promptly set out to claim the mantle of change.
Obama won Colorado, Nevada, California, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, Florida, Virginia, New Mexico, Iowa, Ohio, Wisconsin, Michigan, New York, Rhode Island, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, Maryland and New Jersey, as well as the District of Columbia.
McCain had Nebraska, Idaho, Mississippi, Texas, West Virginia, Utah, Arkansas, Kansas, Kentucky, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Wyoming, Alabama, South Carolina, Louisiana, South Dakota and North Dakota.

We Voted!

Did you? Get your hiney off of blogger and GO VOTE!!!!!!

I was going to meet Josh at our polling place this morning so we could stand in line together. Someone told us that was coming out that they had been in line for an hour and a half. So I decided to come back later. It didn't help, I still stood in line for an hour and twenty minutes. Oh well, at least it's over now! What is going to take up all the commercial time now? I am SO glad we don't have to listen to all of the political backstabbing for a few more years!

WOW what a weekend...the celebrity encounter!

On Friday, we of course took the kids Trick-or-Treating. We stayed mostly in our neighborhood other than going to Big Mama's. They had tons of fun and got TONS of candy, which will slowly but surely disappear from the pantry. Sorry folks, I don't keep candy in the house, it makes the boys out of control, especially G-Man. Saturday I took the kiddos to Hubby's wonderful parents who were keeping ALL THREE of them for the day so that I could go to the game! THANK YOU GRANNA AND PAW PAW! Upon arriving in the Skybox...it was just a tad "stuffy". Crap. We can't act like the redneck fans we really are!!! No chanting cheers...what about Rammer Jammer..I HAVE TO do the Rammer Jammer cheer!!! The Bryant family(Yes, as in Paul Bryant!!) was nice enough to ask us to sit in their Skybox with them and so we couldn't act like idiots! But then they started drinking!!! THANK GOODNESS!!! So, by the end of the first quarter, we were no longer yelling cheers by ourselves! The day before a little birdy(hee hee) had told Sister Allison that not only was Sara Evans going to be there as we had expected but her dear old pal Eva Longoria was coming with her!!!!! HOLY FREAKIN' COW!! So, at halftime, we looked at each other, then back at the band taking the field, then back at each other and said, "Let's go find them!" It didn't take us long because they were going to visit another Skybox and there they were just outside our door! Eva was stuck up and didn't speak or even look our way for that matter...we were literally inches apart from them..but Sara Evans spoke to us. We got a few pics on Allison's camera so as soon as she blogs you will be able to see them there! Oh AND OUR TEAM......is now #1!!!!! Whooooo Hoooo! The final score on Saturday was 35-0..how 'bout that shut out!!!! And how about Nick Saben for President? If he turned the Tide around in a little over a year, I wonder what he could do for our country? ha! Speaking of, DON'T FORGET TO VOTE TOMORROW!!!

If you are wondering where Hubby was during all the Game Day action...he had to work the night before, so he was sleeping..dreaming of me, of course! :)
