Man, we've been struck with a yucky virus in this house! 1st N, then me and K and now I think Josh is getting it. Symptoms include(but not limited to):
-Snotty nose
-Sore throat
-Ear pain(as if your ears may explode)
-Muscles/body aches
and even a little nausea/puking on my part.
This seems to be going around in our area. I hope it doesn't find you!
Nevin seems to be just about over it and it will hopefully leave K and I soon. We are already feeling a bit better than a few days ago. I'm just hoping it's minor fro Josh...poor guy's gotta work!

Go Figure!

So I was nervous all night, all morning and then get in the dentist chair, have the bib on, the dentist comes it and says "So we're taking out a wisdom tooth today" and I say "actually all 4" he looks confused, looks at the x ray and says "oh boy" I can't do those. We have to have another surgeon come out for this". Um...yeah I knew that! The appt was made weeks ago they have my records and x rays and the appt was made for 4 extractions with sedation. UGH! So I was actually really relieved...hehe! But also frustrated since I was all geared up and ready...gave myself many pep talks as did my hubby. They are going to call me Monday to and let me know when they can fit me in.

We ended up having a fantastic day. We went to a little downtown area near here and went to a consignment shop where we sold some clothing and also bought some, and got a puzzle for K. Then we went to a Japanese restaurant and had a yummy lunch. Then went to Baby Bliss and got a pair of shoes, a dress up magnet doll that K is just loving!

and this game for Nevin

which seems really cool.
We had a great conversation with the owner there. She is such a nice lady. She told us about how they are expanding their store! They will now have a much bigger space with lots more goodies! I can't wait to see it. She also told us that her nephews name is Kieran. I love to hear stuff like that, since people seem so surprised when they hear his name...like it's so different. I've now heard of about 4 Kieran's :).
Then when we thought we were all done...we decided to stop into another consignment shop and found this!

I just looked it up on Oompa Toys and it's listed for $46.99 and we got it for 14 bucks! Score! Though it is missing a few blocks. Kieran loves it. He is just so eager to learn and soaks things up like a sponge.
We ended our eventful day at the park. The weather was so gorgeous today!
It was much better than having my wisdom teeth removed. Haha! ;)

A Little Beck

Welcome to Jukebox Friday!

So we went to the cider mill today! We got some yummy apple cider slush's. They are so good. Nevin and Kieran both made friends and played and fed the ducks. Kieran got a real kick of of that! It was a beautiful day.

I'm still real nervous about tomorrow. Maybe I should just ask them to take two out and the other 2 some other time? I'm not looking forward to this. Ugh.

Scaredy Cat

Tomorrow morning I am having my wisdom teeth removed...all FOUR. I'm terrified! The dentist told me that it's going to be a bit difficult for them and that they'll be cutting at bone to get them out. They've needed to come out since I was a teen. So they'll be knocking me out...which also worries me. I'll just be passed out. So weird! And what f I have to pee? What then? That's another huge concern. Also...what if K is all freaked out when my face is swollen? Still..I think I'm mostly worried about having to pee. I have such a weak bladder! No coffee for me tomorrow, that's for sure! So any of you that have had this done. Approximately how long does the procedure last? How will I feel? How long does it take to heal and what do I eat?
Thanks! LOL!

A Loss

It's been a sad past week/weekend. Dear friends of ours lost their baby boy just days before his due date. My heart breaks for them. I wish I could take the pain away or make things better somehow. I know there is nothing I can do. I just cannot even imagine. Things like this are so unfair. Please keep them in your thoughts, prayers, or whatever it is you believe.

Family Fun Day

On Sunday we went down to Ann Arbor on a whim and had a great time! We went to the book store and picked up a few books...Veganomicon, 5 Little Pumpkins Sitting On A Gate(for K), a star Wars book(for N)and a couple others and just walked around downtown and through some alleys looking at graffiti. After that we went to Seva( a vegetarian/vegan restaurant) for dinner. I LOVE this place! If only it weren't so expensive. It's just so nice not having to worry about anything or wondering if they will have something for us to eat. I didn't even think about taking pictures until we were almost finished...well they were, I'm a slow eater ;). Well here are some pics of our half eaten food. I had breakfast for dinner. Josh had Pasta Alla Bosca Nevin had a grilled Tofurkey sandwich Kieran had Penne Pasta with tomato sauce. Everyone was happy with what they got. Yum yum yum! After dinner the kids each got some sorbet to go and Josh and I split a piece of cake. While walking back to the car we heard Michael Jackson music playing. When we followed the sound we found this guy!

From what I found out...he regularly puts on these performances. We stayed and watched for a few songs and tipped him. Kieran was mesmerized and Nevin thought the guy was so cool(he use to be a huge Michael Jackson fan). It was a fun and adventurous day!

I made this little thing. It's nothing really. Maybe it could be a Barbie blanket? Hehe! I gave it to Kieran and he said "Make bigger one" , so that's what I'm doing! I'm making him the baby blanket that this yarn was originally meant for. I find that I tend to make it smaller and smaller as I work my way up. I need to work on getting my loops all the same size. The 1st 2 rows look a bit messy, but I'm getting better! Nevin has asked for a red blanket, so after K's I'll be starting on his. This is going to take some time for sure! I love it, though. It gives me something to do while watching movies and shows on my laptop. It's also relaxing. I haven't started learning anything fancy yet...still the single chain, but I'll get there.

Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World

Finally! I now own this book. I cannot wait to get started on making some cupcakes! The only problem is deciding which kind to make first. They all look so yummy! Just looking at the photo's in the book makes me drool! Yum yum yum.
