Sabbath afternoon ( Unleavened Breads week)

With part of his " Harem."



Seeing double?


Hanging out watching the others while chewing grass.

Such different little girls.

Watch the mud fly.

Where the mud landed.

Spring Sabbath Pictures.



Toes...

Tasty Toes...

Sleepy Eyes....

What NOT to do....

Day 3 of reaction

Its beginning to heal.

Looking so much better.

Sabbath February 16th Abrianna had a strange looking rash on her arm. Abby had pink stamps from Oriental Trading company marking her arms.
Sunday Rick and Lucas went skiing. Abrianna walked by and I asked to see her arm. To my horror it was angry red and covered in large blisters. Then I noticed on top of the pink stamps on Abby's arm blisters where forming! I applied charcoal to help counter act whatever was going on. But it didn't help. Then came baking soda. No better. So I called their doctor ( who happens to work the Sunday clinic) and took them in. His immediate reaction was that they were burned. Uhhhh... Nooo..... No burns from water anyway. His next thought was impetigo a strep or staph infection. Taking a culture he sent it away to the lab sending me home with instructions to keep triple anti-biotic ointment applied to prevent the spread of infection. The blisters did spread as they burst. Nobody else was affected.  I sent away pictures and a request for reimbursement for medical costs to the company. We'll see what happens. We are hoping that the scars fade away. They still look bad 4 weeks afterwards.

Beautiful Hair

Monday Emberley was "off her feed" due to teething causing double mastitis. I laid down at a quarter to 7 with baby. A short while later, the door cracked open and little feet padded across the floor accompanied by grunts of exertion as she scrambled up to join me on the bed.
She snuggled in next to me gently stroking my hair saying, "boo ti ful!" This was immediately followed by some snuffing. Was she smelling me or blowing her nose in my hair? "Abby what are you doing?  Smelling your hair" she replied.  "What does it smell like?" I asked. " Ketchup!" Okay... was that a compliment?
Next she fumbled in the dark, coming up with a container of coconut oil, smearing it on my head. ( Didn't realize what she was doing till it was done.) "There! " came the triumphant voice. " You smell boo ti 'iful! bursting into song, "boo ti' ful, boo ti'ful, Jesus makes boo ti' ful!"
A few minutes later she added the final touch with a stuffed soft baby ring of a crown. Yes, my dear. Now mommy's boo ti 'iful.

Abrianna's phrases

"Mommy, I need Lucas' assistance!" Abrianna demanded. Not help mind you. Not my 4 year old. She has a much more colorful vocabulary.
