The sickness, oh the sickness

Luckily it's not too bad though!  We still have a lot of snotty noses, a few coughs, and Scott was super sick. He had ear infections that worked its way down his throat.  So, his sinuses were a mess! He had to miss work on Thursday and Friday.  He's feeling lots better now!  I thought we were doing okay, until pretty fast after Scott dropped Cecilia off at nursery.  I see her coming toward me and one of the leaders says she has pink eye.  Her eyes were goobery, but my kids' eyes always do that when they get a cold.  So, Cecilia, Josh and I went home.  They didn't mind.  No one is throwing up, so I'm a very happy camper!  I'm feeling pretty happy about that with all of the flu going around.  NOT THE FLU, ANYTHING BUT THE FLU!!!  I hate it when my kiddos are sick, and the flu is miserable!  Anyway.  We had fun with the Pinewood Derby.  I had the opportunity to make all of the awards.  So, I bought a container of air dry clay and a spray can of silver metallic paint, and tiny cars (for printing).  I made a ton of medals using the bottom part of a cupcake pan.  Then I poked a hole in each using a corn cob holder and stamped each with the cool looking race car.  After a few days they were dry enough to paint, so I did.  If I had had more time (and money). I would have stamped the sayings in them (or the boys' names) and coated with a glossy clear spray.  Oh well, the Sharpie worked well on most!  I also made four cars for trophies.  Fun times!  I really like clay!  Check out the results!

 Ben decorated the little one and was very disappointed that he didn't win it!

Obviously I forgot to take pictures of the medals.  I have spares, so not a problem.

 Eating her cool cake, no I didn't make it (remember I was feeling rotten).
 Ben is being Big Bird.
I LOVE reviewing things, and Monkeez and Friends actually gave me one for EACH kid!  How awesome is that?  Usually I have to choose one kiddo to get something to review, so this was fantastic!  They all love them, a little too much even.
 This was after his first couple of races, so there was no longer a beak on his Peregrine Falcon/Perry the Platypus.
My handsome lil' man today wearing his outfit that I got for $1 yesterday.  I LOVE great sales!  And cute babies/kiddos!
