What we've been doing :)

Elisabeth had a horrible sinus infection that peaked about Thursday afternoon.  The poor girl was so exhausted by the time we got home that all she wanted to do was cuddle.  So, we put on Horton Hears a Who and chilled until Papa got home and could go pick up Quizno's for us.  I thought she'd at least eat soup if her throat was hurting, but she wouldn't touch it.  She wouldn't eat a thing.  She ate a pickle Thursday morning, but her babysitter said she hadn't eaten anything else.  Friday I think she ate half a piece of bread.  Saturday, she ate a pickle and some olives.  She didn't even want ice cream!  Finally today, she was willing to eat some blueberries and juice.  The poor girl was getting so dehydrated. :(  We started her on a round of antibiotics Friday night, and her fever broke through that night.  She's on the upswing, but man, she got bad f.a.s.t.!

Other than that, things have been pretty quiet lately...just plugging along at work and play. :) The only other thing exciting going on is Elisabeth attempting to have another tooth break's been a long time coming and it's just barely under the skin.  Hopefully it isn't hurting her too much and will come through a lot easier than the last couple of months have been for her.

 Elisabeth wanted to hang out outside- I love how she slumps in the chair---it was so she could wiggle her legs better!

 I thought this was funny sporting the shoes. :)

 This was her "Fancy" outfit she picked out.  We were reading Olivia's Opposites book and we were talking about Plain and Fancy- so she wanted to be fancy!  oh, and we had to play blocks, too.

 Cheese and Cornbread- I got this recipe from one of my friends. It makes the best cornbread in the world. And I usually hate cornbread!


 You see these?  These are brownies and cookies together.  Whoever thought brownies and cookies should go together was a GENIUS!!! We had some for dessert last night.  The only downside? They took FIFTY minutes to make!!!

 And this? This is dinner tonight.  It sounded delicious! So we're making it!

And these are my two sweethearts watching Donald Duck cartoons.  Elisabeth likes to wear her jacket because it has newly discovered pockets.  She likes to walk around with her hands in her pockets now- it's pretty adorable to me.  We had also weaned from having a binky during the day, but with this horrible cold, I kind of eased up, so I'm guessing we'll have to go through the continuous questioning of where is teeny binky once this cold is gone again. haha oh well :)
