Little Ladybug

Chloe is obsessed with dogs. Last night we were watching a show on Animal Planet that had a dog in it and everytime Chloe saw the dog on the screen, she would get excited and try to say "arf!" It sounds more like "ugh" but it is extremely cute. She also gets excited when we let the dogs out in the mornings. She loves to see them dance as they wait for me to feed them. Maggie tolerated Chloe putting her ear in her mouth last night. Yuck! It was cute, even though Chloe got a mouthful of black and white hair.

Here is the girl in her adorable dress. Unfortunately, she is feeling sick (again) but she looks cute!

My first blog

As Jason posted, we are ill. It's days like these that I wish I had a nanny, just so I could sleep more. Chloe is back to normal but poor Kieran, he's about to hack up a lung. Enough on our failing health.

What the heck am I supposed to talk about here? I'm new to blogging, obviously. Hmmmm... I made banana bread and Jason will kill me for it... that is interesting. He hates it when I bake. Muwhahahahaha...

I miss Oregon. Minnesota is very cold. I am not a good cold weather person. Yes, I am a wimp as Jason would say. I avoid my errands because I don't want to go out in the cold, especially with two kids that have hats, coats, mittens etc. etc. Too much hassle.

I'm off to medicate myself further (said with a stuffy nose sounding voice).


Starting last Friday night, Chloe came down with some stomach illness. Of course, I avoided all contact with the residents of the house, but still managed to come down with it. "The Streak" is still alive, but it killed my stomach for a few days. That same weekend, Kieran came down with a bad cold, but managed to avoid the stomach thing. Poor Ashley has managed to catch both, getting the stomach thing first and now the cold. Hopefully, I can avoid the cold. The good news is I will be able to get some exercise tonight for the first time in almost a week.

Oh, and just for fun, here is a picture of me and my favorite girl:
