Thank goodness for a new day...

because yesterday totally sucked, lol!
Both kids are sick with fevers.
Our weekend of one n'hood party and two birthday parties (one of which is my nephew's) has turned into a weekend of sitting on the couch with two miserable children :-(
Yesterday, noah had what was thought to be a febrile seizure, and we spent over 3 hours in the ER.
Observing that was definitely the scariest mommy moment of my life.
I'm SO thankful my little guy is ok!
They think he (so most likely, she as well) has Coxsackievirus/Hand-foot-mouth disease.
Chloe woke at 5am.
Noah's still sleeping.
I'm feeling hopeful that today will be a better day :-)

In good, totally-made-my-day scrappy news, I got not one, but two amazing scrappy packages on Friday.
One was from my sweet friend doris, full of two brand new yummy Jenni Bowlin lines.
The other was from Jodi and Fancy Pants, also full of two brand new yummy lines (the boy and girl Kraft Kuts).
I totally can not wait to dig into both of those!

Hope everyone is having a happy (and healthy!) weekend!

Oh girl, I really hope that the kidlets are getting much better today. So sorry you had such an awful day

I saw the comment on FB about a possible seizure and my heart stopped! It is horrible to watch your little ones in distress, knowing you can do nothing. I sure hope they are feeling better soon! :)

Woohoo for your scrappy news! Can't wait to see what you create with all the yumminess! And thanks for the congrats on Forward Progress. I'm a nervous wreck about the LO part of this, but the purpose of the site is soooo right up my alley. I'm looking forward to it and I am especially honored to be in the company of such scrapping greatness...aka YOU!

Sending big bear hugs your way! XOXO

Yeah - more Kraft Kuts! Can't wait to see what you do with them.

There is definitely something funky going around. Camryn's been up and down with a fever all weekend too. Nothing as bad as Noah experienced, but she woke up in the middle of the night burning up. Thankfully, it came back down after one dose. fun stuff!

Oh no! Poor babies.....Poor Mommy! I'm glad to hear that they're getting better today, but how awful that you had to spend that time in the ER.....every Moms worst nightmare.

I can't wait to see what you do with the new Fancy Pants, I really love seeing what you come up with.
