It has not been a stellar week for the wife's side of the family

Last week both Chris' mom and step mother had falls that resulted in broken bones and if that was not bad enough her Aunt Gail (who is undergoing treatment for cancer) had to be rushed back to the hospital with double pneumonia.

Everyone keep them in your prayers.

On a happier note we finally gave Nate a guitar that Grandmoo got for him last year. We figured he was old enough to take care of it now. I posted some pictures of him with the guitar in our photo album.

Had a fun weekend

Carol came over for the weekend so Saturday I was able to take Chris to Cowtown Sushi for a belated Valentine's treat. Then Sunday Bobby and his friend Matt dropped by (I have not seen him in a looooong time) and the kids had a blast with him.

I have uploaded pics of the weekend and hopefully tomorrow I will have the video of Bobby chasing Nate while carrying Lexi. Matt had a an Olympus digital camera (I believe it was the Stylus 810) and the video quality was AWESOME! Matt boasted that he was able to go through the video frame by frame and see a plane's moving propeller without blur - after seeing some of the video he took in the car with Bobby driving to Dallas I believe him.

Nate better - Chris and Lexi not

Nate's still coughing but has not had a fever since Wednesday. We thought Lexi was getting better but Friday she started running a fever again. At least she is sleeping through the night. Last Tuesday night was horrid - Nate and Lexi woke up twice each and I had to get them each time because Chris wasn't feeling well (though she claimed Nate woke up a third time and she took care of that). Chris isn't running a fever but she is achy so this morning I am going to work from home and take Lexi to her three year appointment this afternoon.

Nate and Chris are sick - Lexi is okay thus far.

Last weeks ago there was a post at the school that two kids in a different class from Nate and Lexi was sent home with Chicken Pox. Thursday Nate could not get comfortable and woke up with a fever. Chris got a low grade fever and has been achy since Friday. Chris doesn't think its Chickenpox since Nate has not developed the blisters yet but I am taking a wait and see approach. Chris never had it as a child so I have already told her that if Nate does deliver blisters I want her to go the doctor that day.

If it wasn't for the fact that Chris never had chickenpox I would be hoping that it was chickenpox so Nate and Lexi would get an immunity to it (if you get it as an adult it could be much worse - even fatal).

Just in case I have been bringing home my work laptop in case I need to work from home.

Other than that we have been enjoying the cold. We got a little snow Thursday but it was too warm for it to stick.
