Just building .......

So what did we do today???? Well Carson and I went to the doctor and made sure his lungs sounded okay from yesterday's little incident. We are going to put him on steroids for 5 days and give him 4 breathing treatments for one week just to keep his lungs dry. The doctor said he heard a little wetness and if I hear it still on Monday, we will get an X-ray to make sure he doesn't end up with pneumonia. It's always something with my little pork chop. On a good note, he actually ate a 1/2 cup of Cheerios for me for breakfast and then at lunch he ate a whole hot dog and some green beans. Then for dinner it was a cup of applesauce. I know that doesn't sound like a lot but for him, that is a ton of food. I still gave him his 5 feedings so every little bit helps. I'm pretty proud of him for eating so much.

Coltan and Cody had soccer practice tonight so I took them and then off to the grocery store I went. We got home and I made Sombrero Taco Cups. Don't know where the name came from, just a recipe that Chris and I found when we were very young and Coltan and Cody were babies themselves. It is basically taco meat and cheese on a biscuit. The boys love them and they were quick and easy.

Cody had the Indian food today and told me that he didn't feel so well after eating it. I think maybe it was too spicy? He yelled at me and said I should have warned him how nasty the food was. Well, I did the opposite and told him he might like it. How the heck was I supposed to know that my teenage kid would actually listen to me? LOL

After dinner I had the boys help me tidy up the house. I have a man coming out to measure windows tomorrow so I can replace 4 of them. Long story short, Cody broke one last summer as we were minutes from leaving to go out of town for a soccer tournament. He was outside kicking the ball between the garage door and his bedroom window. Apparently he shoot one ball a little to high. Coltan was sitting on the floor playing play station and said it scared the heck out of him. Then last April Coltan and my niece Aspen were inside the house and they were wrestling and they broke out a window. I have two more that have some rotting wood so if you stand in front of the window you can feel a real cold draft. Coltan's soccer coach has reminded me that boys will be boys and I probably haven't seen the last of broken windows. Great.....

Here are some pictures of Carson and I hanging out and building me a brand new house. Tell me what you think? I'm thinking I should get a swimming pool to go right in the backyard.

We must start off acting like we are camera shy. Yea right, my kid not wanting to take pictures. HA HA

A work in progress....

Still concentrating.....



All done mom.


I'm going to design really cool buildings when I get bigger.

What a masterpiece that Carson made. Sorry to hear about your window dilemma. The Sombrero Taco Cups sounds lovely. Have a great weekend.

Love the house. Hopefully he doesn't get pnemonia, Jax always gets pnemonia from everything. Thats so nice for you that he is so careful with his tube.

Awesome new design for your home. Nice job Carson.

I got your message this morning. I am doing better, I guess. I didnt eat dinner last night so I didnt get sick...so who knows. I cut the boys hair last night and I guess I had my phone on vibrate all night, from work, and I never even saw that you called till on my way into work this morning.

Praying that the lungs survived the swimming jump!

Love ya-

I haven't had much time for blogging or blog-reading of late, but, my goodness, you seem to have your own wilderness to get lost in (broken windows, death-defying leaps into pools, math homework, numerous dr. appts., house arrest, etc., etc.)

I think I got lost myself (in a different way and not on purpose) since we moved to this ample property.
