A Little Catch Up

Hello Everyone,

These last 2 to 3 weeks have been a little crazy for me. I have been really busy! I have rarely ever gone more than one day without a post let alone 3 to 4 days. I have dealt with a sick husband, a sick dog and and helping to organize a sprinkle baby shower.

It is hard to get my husband to go to the doctor. The only time he goes without a fight is to his annual cat scan to make sure his cancer hasn't come back. He has been sick for a couple of months now. It really bothers me especially when I am awaken by his cough spraying all over my face!!!

Well he finally went to the doctors, who told him if he had waited 1 or 2 more days he would be in the hospital for about 7 days. He received a breathing treatment, a couple of shots and several bottles of meds. I am so glad he went, now he is on the mend!

Our little dog was acting up Monday. He was up and down all night and just aggravating us. He just wouldn't stay still. Well the next morning I was getting ready for work and he was still acting weird. I told him he needed to calm his little butt down. Well right when I was getting ready to leave I noticed that his ears were really red. Now I have a chihuahua so they have big ears and well they were really noticeable. I gathered him up and off we went to the vet. I am so glad that I took him. He was having some kind of allergic reaction. The vet said that the next stage of this reaction would've been trouble breathing. So I am so glad I noticed his ears before I left. A medicated bath, shots, an IV and $300.00 later he was back to normal. The doctor said he was so fidgety because he was itching so bad. We love this little guy like he is our child and I just hate to think that anything is wrong with him.

We had my daughters sprinkle baby shower earlier this month. You can check out this post to see what I made for her first shower. I will do a post later with pictures of what I made for this shower. But for right now here is the little favor I made for this one:

I just think they are soooo cute!!! It is a little bottle filled with shower gel. The baby is wrapped in a felt baby blanket with a tag on it that reads:

We sprinkled Summer with gifts, it’s true -
But this sprinkle gift is just for you!

They went fast!! People wanted 2 & 3 of them. I will do a post later showing you my diaper wreath and diaper cake I made. I wasn’t planning on making either of them but Summer asked me if I would and of course I couldn’t resist her. I actually got a couple of orders!!

I think that will be it for now. I still have a few things to post about but it’ll have to wait till next time.

Have a blessed day!
