Where do you go to see a Free Movie?

The Free-aeter. This Morning when Isaac woke up he first asked "Did Santa Come Down The Chimney?" I said "It's not Christmas yet." Then Isaac asked "Can we go see the Bee Movie at the Free-aeter today?" I got a chuckle out of it and I said "No, Is the Free-ater is where you go see free movie's at?" he said yes. So all day I've been telling his joke because he came up with the whole idea.
Yesterday Isaac was really stressed he kept waiting all day for Santa to come down the chimney. Isaac knew it was a holiday and there has been so much hype about Christmas everywhere he was sure it had to be Christmas. I kept telling him it was not Christmas and Santa wouldn't come down the chimney but he couldn't accept it. I think he thinks were trying to get away without celebrating Christmas.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Enjoy your Holiday Weekend! We plan to have Thanksgiving dinner with Grandma Reenie at our house. We are going to keep it simple and have Turkey, Stuffing, Mashed Potatoes, gravy, Veggies, and maybe some rolls. For dessert we are having Pumpkin Pie topped with whipped cream. We love Thanksgiving it is one of our favorite Holidays. After dinner we will go visit Grandma Southworth in the Nursing Home and take her some food. Please remember to be thankful for the simple things in life. Our family is so thankful to have each other and good health. There have been a lot of times our family have had close calls where we could of lost one or more of our family members. There are also many people in various situations that do not have a home, such as the recent fire victims in California. Please pray for our troops and their families, they have a lot of issues and challenges. There are also some of our friends who are struggling with health issues, pray for them too, Especially Kaidence who is waiting for a heart transplant. We all have a lot to be grateful for, count your blessings and you'll notice how truly blessed you are. I challenge you all to look for the positive and I canassure you that you will find it.

Croup Again!

Early Sunday morning Isaac started to panic, not being able to breathe. I tried giving him some cold saline in the Nebulizer which usually works, but he refused it. I threw his coat on and mine and ran with him outside to breathe the cool morning air. Thankfully it worked. After he was finally breathing better I gave him some Dexamethazone (a prescription for croup from the doctor), then tried cool saline in the Nebulizer again. What a panic for me it was. He usually cooperates, I was worried it was going to be a 9-1-1 call. To top it off I had to get up early in the morning for church because I had to teach in Primary. I was a few minutes late, but it all worked out in the end. Sunday afternoon Isaac started to cry in pain for several hours. Somehow he pulled a muscle in his neck. The pain later went down his arm, so I had to take him to Primary Children's Medical Center Emergency Room to check his heart. All with his heart checked out okay. He was not happy when they tried to get a blood draw and nothing would come out, I was mad too because they always send in someone that doesn't know how to draw blood from a heart patient. As many parents of heart kids know, It takes an expert to get blood drawn or an IV placed for our heart kids. His neck still hurts but he is able to avoid the pain by not moving it that direction. I added to his pain when I had him get a Flu shot yesterday. The muscle in his leg has been hurting from the shot.
This morning about 4AM another episode of croup. This time not as severe as Sunday. Isaac cooperated with the Nebulizer although he didn't want to, he took his Dexamethazone steroid and he went back to sleep. Much better this time although it wasn't easy getting up the kids for school and babysitting this morning.
Tonight we are having the LDS Sister Missionaries for dinner, I am sure we will enjoy it. I just have to get busy and clean-up before they arrive.
