Crazy November

Wow November has been such a crazy month! We have had a lot of sickness and a lot of stuff going on, but I think we have turned the corner, and we're looking forward to this coming week. We are so blessed and have so much to be thankful for.
So by way of a quick catch up, the first week in November Alan got strep throat. The next week Logan went in for his 1 year well baby check-up. I know it was almost a month late, but I guess I am not super mom. He is doing great! He is in the 50th percentile for weight and the 90+ percentile for height. It is fun to have a light weight around for once. We are still hoping he will grow out of his soy allergy. Logan also got a bunch of shots. Poor baby. He then got a fever that night and by the next day he could barely breath. That night was a little scary. I took him to the doctor the next day and they said that he had croup. I think that he's allergic to something in the Polio vaccine because every time he get it, the next day he has croup. But no doctors will believe me about it.
Then this past week I have had a very sore throat and actually lost my voice for a few days.
The poor kids, I feel like we have been stuck in the house doing nothing for weeks. At least Emma has not been sick and has still been able to go to school.
In happy news, I joined the Pleasant Grove Rec Center this past week and I'm taking classes 4 night a week after we put the kids to bed. I started taking yoga and hip hop cardio. I really enjoy yoga. It is so nice to relax and stretch. The Hip Hop class was so fun. It was like my high school dance team all over again.
And finally, I am happy to report that I can see the light at the end of the holiday sewing projects tunnel. I finished a ton of skirts and stuff for my holiday E-bay auctions. It feels good to be almost done. All I have to do is get them all listed on Monday. Feel free to check them out and tell me what you think.
Emma has really gotten into Hannah Montana lately and she likes to play dress up and be a big girl. I can't complain about it too much because she think being like Hannah Montana means wearing two shirts and having her hair in a low off-to-the-side ponytail. Anyway, since I told her Hannah likes to model, she was nice enough to be a model for my auction listings. Here are a few of my favorites.

Cute photos! I'm glad things are getting better for you and that you have a chance for a few night classes. We're looking forward to seeing all of you this week!
Love always,

If I find out that I am having a girl (which I really hope), I will have to commission you to make some cute skirts for small ones. :)
I wish I could do that.
