Three pounds gained in Four weeks. She's up to Ten lbs. Ten oz.
Every Four hours, a dose of Tylenol
Two babies under my supervision tonight. Emma Kate, of course, and I'm babysitting my nephew, Corbin until tomorrow night
Two dirty diapers changed in Ten minutes from child # One
One more diaper changed Five minutes later from child # Two
Four shirts I've had to change because of projectile vomiting, from child # One
Learned that trying to feed Two babies at One time by One person is just simply Impossible
One more night with less than Four hours of sleep

Ok, so it's the night before Halloween and what am I doing? Making treat bags for 20 little Kindergarteners, of course! I volunteered to be Homeroom Mom for Morgan's class and have been busy the past two weeks assigning parents to various tasks and responsibilities.
I decided to do treat bags because that would be easy, right? Well, you know me, and I don't just take the easy way out and buy the plastic treat bags and tie 'em and go on...Nope, that's not me at all. I found these cute paper bags, filled each one with candy and spiders and fun stuff like that, then in order to close 'em, I decided to punch holes and tie 'em with curly ribbon! Time-consuming to say the least!
Oh, and because I needed just ONE more thing to do...chocolate covered pretzels with sprinkles! That have to be bagged and tied as well!
And it's midnight...4 bags down, 16 to go! Better get busy...Morgan's party is at 8:30 am!!! They have to be finished tonight!
Sausage Egg Rolls
1 Roll of Sausage
1 Bag of Cabbage Mix (w/carrots)
1 Package of Egg Roll Wrappers (usually found in produce near the tofu)
1/4 Cup of Soy Sauce
Chinese Five Spice (I think I use about a teaspoon, just eyeball it)
Oil for frying (About an inch in the bottom of my pan is enough)
Soy Sauce for dipping

*I found this new website, PICNIK for picture editing...I love Picasa, but this has so many cool things! Like the collages, so many options...Not to mention, so much fun!!
Happy Friday! Here's to the weekend!

I haven't been taking enough pictures so we tried to get some good ones today. Emma Kate normally just sleeps and eats, but I was able to get some of her awake today! She is getting so big! Can you count her baby chins!! HeHe!

So, back to what I want to get done...no, what I WILL get done this weekend!
~WORK ON THE FLOWERBEDS (totally neglected ALL summer!)
~DECORATE FOR FALL (bought my mums, pumpkins, and scarcrow yesterday!)
I also have a few "extra projects" to work on...antique my kitchen cabinets, paint the kitchen, strip and polish the kitchen floors. We started on the cabinets last night and they look great! It's so easy too. I will post a before and after and a how-to...it's so easy!
I caught Alan off guard by my "list", but he knows me and I'm sure will go along with all my changing and re-arranging!
***Forgot to post about this....NO SURGERY FOR ETHAN!!...for right now atleast! The doctor wants to watch it for another year and hopes it will close up on its own. He said there's no need to worry because the hole is so small there's no change for his intestines to come through...Whew! With Hannah's stay in the hospital earlier this year and the pregnancy, it's nice to know we won't have another one in the hospital! Thanks for everyones' thoughts and prayers!
