allergy appointment(s)

So many appointments, here and there.  We try to schedule N's during B's preschool, 
however it doesn't always work out that way...  
Allergy appointments tend to take hours.  I'm not kidding.  
We have learned to pack many books and break out the portable DVD to play while I talk with the doctor.  The kids have done great.  
What have we learned so far?  Well, NO NUTS, none... end of discussion.  
No eggs (whites or yolks), which also means no flu shot... oh wait.  I thought I was being a good mom and I already got him the flu shot.  Oops...I must be *that mom.*  (He did not have a reaction, but next year we need to have him allergy tested for the shot before giving it to him... uh, good to know.)
No *rolling in the hay.*  This is a new one.  Grass.  No mowing the lawn, too!  
What a great excuse he has when he is a teenager!  
I am doing oral introductions with soybean, oats, and barley at home.  We are doing oral introductions of almond and sunflower seed in the doctor's office.  I hope they all go well, so we can have barley soup on cold winter nights and almond butter sandwiches on picnics.  
How do I keep this straight?  I have no idea.

secret reader

We surprised B at preschool last week.  
Daddy was the secret reader for B's preschool class.  
He read her favorite story from one of our very loved books.  
What a great way to wake up from a nap!

N our MVP

N had his surgery on Friday and came through like a champ.  We are so grateful everything went so good.  
After surgery, I went back to recovery to wait for him to wake up.
  I said a *thank you* when he woke and sat up for Mommy.  
After a bit in the main recovery room we went to our private, family recovery room to let him wake up more and so we could be with Daddy and B.  No crying, just a little sleepy.  
B was such a loving big sister.  She was so sweet with him.
He requested his hat in the car and a strawberry milkshake.  
When we got home, he seemed like he was back to his happy self.
Here's to life's blessings.  Happy Monday.

clear liquids

N must be on a clear liquid diet... all day.  Hmmm.... we will see how this goes.  
You are not invited unless you want a popsicle for dinner.
(P.S. - this famous water is straight from my friend, Karin, owner of OSMOSIS Mint Water... drink it! {wink})

N - the allergy boy

More allergy testing...  
N had allergy testing yesterday.  It will be good to confirm.  
Dealing with 9+ allergies has been challenging, but N is a trooper!

welcome to the world

One of my best girlfriends had a baby this weekend... isn't she lovely?

zoo night

Our local zoo had a member's night.  We road the train, enjoyed dinner with our good friends, and took a trip around the carousel.  
B thought it was extra fun to be at the zoo in the dark (N was not as impressed).

dress up

In between the running around, we had a playdate with our good friends.  
Perfect time for a little dress-up!

driving miss daisy?

Thank goodness I am my own boss... the past few weeks have been filled with running around to Preschool and appointments.  We have been busy with a handful of doctor's appointments.  
Pediatric surgeon on Tuesday, Pre-op at the hospital yesterday, Allergy testing next week, and another big day for N next Friday.  
The kids have been really good at all of them.  Today's agenda?  Flu Shots... fun.

fabulous weekend

We spent a lovely weekend in San Antonio, TX with friends... 
my best friend of 30 years (or so). 
We enjoyed our time walking around, taking in the sites and people.  
N thought this hat was hilarious...
The girls... check out B's flowers, courtesy of my girlfriend.  
B was so happy to learn she was big enough to ride on the boat through the River Walk.

last day

This is the last day I will reminisce about our fantastic summer holiday back home with our dear families, friends, and the mountains... 
Now is the time we must part with the Aspen...
A walk down memory lane...(i.e., the college years)
Last minute views of the cute local shops we miss...
A little coffee before we hit the road...
Taking in our college town Farmer's Market...
These guys have the right idea...
A little last minute playing with the cousins...
Back to our Oklahoma sky... Really, school is in and that means we must move on to my two favorite seasons.  Fall and Football!  Happy Weekend... xo!

more on our holiday

Since school is in, I am feeling more reminiscent of our time away with family...
The main street in Steamboat was a lot of fun to walk up and down.  Candy, ice cream, shopping, people watching, etc.  
We even ran into the Frog Prince... 
AND the Frog Princess!  
B thought she was big stuff.
N should have brought his cowboy hat.
At the base of the mountain we enjoyed some good clean kids kind of fun.
While B jumped and jumped, N and I hung out a bit while we waited.
I think we had ice cream every day!
Sleeping in felt so wonderful, I don't know if we can get use to getting up early again!
