Weekend Update

The girls got a 3 day weekend due to their school closing on Friday for decontamination! Friday morning we watched Scooby-DooandtheMonsterofMexicowhich we got from the trusty Redbox on Thursday during our emergency Listerine run. Who doesn’t love the Redbox?!

By lunchtime Lainey was starting to look a little rough, so when her fever got to 101 I decided to call the pediatrician to ask if she should be put on


They actually called in a script for both girls, since they were both exposed at school and Lainey was already getting sick. I sent Shawn to pick it up, but the pharmacy was all out, and the pharmacy tech basically said “Good luck with that!”

I probably would have called every pharmacy within a 100 mile radius, but luckily I found it on my 2nd phone call. Shawn went to get it and sheesh…it was $90 for both scripts! I don’t even want to know how much it is without prescription coverage. Did you hear that someone was selling fake Tamiflu online?

Saturday afternoon Lainey took a long nap and Alivia and I worked on her fire safety project, which almost drove me to drink. More on that in a second (more on the project, not on the drinking!).

Saturday night we decided we better get our pumpkin carving on, since Halloween is less than a week away…

Here is Lainey with Dad, we nicknamed them the “White team.”


Here are Alivia and I, we didn’t really have a team name.

(oh, and for those of you who were loving on my hat, I got it at the Gap Outlet for $5!)


And the finished product! It’s a Scooby-Doo witch, just in case you couldn’t tell.


Team White’s finished Tigger!


And both pumpkins together:


I think they turned out pretty good, we didn’t have anyone to judge our pumpkin carving contest, so in the end it was a tie.

Now, for the moment we’ve all been waiting for…

Drum roll please…

The finished “Fire Safety” Project:


This is the diagram of the inside of the house. All of the rooms had to labeled, smoke detectors had to be labeled, and she had to show 2 ways to exit the house from her bedroom. Yes, I drew the outlines of the rooms. I couldn’t help it, I had to. If she gets marked down for me doing that Shawn has agreed to tell her teacher, “Sorry, Alivia’s Mom has OCD.” Ha!

And now for the outside:

(which had to show the 2 exit plans, a “meeting” place, and a place to call 911)



I’d be lying if I didn’t say I’m hoping the teacher doesn’t mark on it, so we can save it and turn it back in when Lainey is in first grade!

Scan it before she turns it in if you the hat!

Love the drawing! I too would not want the teacher to write on it. But, what is Tamiflu?

Love the pumpkins! Hope your sweet babies start feeling better.

Looks like Alivia takes after her Mommy in the "sass" department.

Haha! If they say anything about re-using the homework, just tell them you're being green. LOL!
