Well I had thought we were finally over the "hump" of cold nasty weather ... boy was I wrong! LOL! Just like last year - we got a BIG *SNOW* storm at the first of March. I was soooo looking forward to warmer weather with lots of sunshine but I will have to tell you - I was just as excited as Trevor was this morning to see all of the SNOW!!
Trevor always wakes me up on the weekends in the morning around 6:50/7am .. it's just "our" thing - I heard him coming in like I always do, but I always keep my eyes closed so he thinks he is waking me up. Toddlers love when it's THEIR idea - ha! Anyways so instead of the normal "good morning mama" I get .. I woke up to "SNOW MAMA! SNOW OUTSIDE!". I jumped out of bed and couldn't believe me eyes. I grabbed the camera and had to take pictures before it melted. As I walked outside - I was shocked to see how deep the snow was!!! We all got up, ate breakfast, and we were out the door by 8!
We had a BLAST! Bryan pulled Trevor in the slide, they had a snow-ball fight, and Trevor made a snow-angel! It was GREAT family fun and I am soooo thankful for that wonderful time together!
Other news with our family ...
We are ALL finally well - well me and Trevor are well .. Bryan has yet to be sick at all this fall/winter! LuCkY - must have some super duper immune system! It took me about 2 FULL weeks to get over the FLU and the bronchitis. I had to be checked again a week to 10 days after getting the FLU because I was just getting worse. It seemed like my chest was tighter than ever and I simply couldn't breath. I didn't know what I was doing wrong because I was taking my medicine like I should, taking my vitamins, and was drinking lots of OJ. After getting examined - I was told my bronchitis was WORSE and I had a severe sinus infection on top of it. Basically my head was clogged and my lungs were in bad shape. He decided to check my PFT's(lung function) again like he had in November, the last time I had bronchitis - and what are we surprised to see... I am slightly asthmatic. He said I need to be on 2 inhalers - one for every day use to help keep my air-ways clear and one for emergencies. I also was put on a strong nasal spray to help keep my nasal passages clear too. Hopefully with this new routine I won't get bronchitis sooo much!
Trevor was back in the doctor last week because he had been pulling on his left ear. We thought - better safe then sorry - we should have him looked at. He has only ever had 1 ear infection in his life so I wasn't sure if he actually had one or not ... she took a peek and the left ear was FINE but the right ear had just a little fluid behind it - she said not even enough to bother him. She looked up his nose too and saw a little congestion and suggested we up his daily intake of Zyrtec to 1 1/2 tsp instead of the 1tsp. He will also need to stay on his Nasonex Nasal Spray until he is 4 and can get to the allergist. Other then that - Trevor is happy and healthy - seems to be on the right road with staying well! YaY!
As for the wedding plans ... we have our *FIRST* big planning meeting with Cedarwood on March 14th and I am soooo excited! We will basically start to pick out EVERYTHING for the wedding day. The bridesmaid dresses got here super fast - which surprised me considering they told me in January, for a July wedding I needed to get them ordered ASAP. I picked them up yesterday and they are PERFECT!!!!! Next week, we have got to get our self to the TUX shop to pick out the tux's/suits and have all the groomsmen measured just so they have everything on file - just another thing I can check off the list of 'Things To Do'! Our list is still sticking right at 100-110 which is exactly what we wanted .. very close friends and of course our loving family. My dress is still tucked away in Emily & John's spare bedroom closet. I haven't seen it since the day I got it and I am having with drawls! It is just sooo gorgeous & beautiful .. I might need to make a special trip over there just to sit and look at it! (.. Silly I know - but it's just the perfect dress for me - sooo thankful we found it! ..) Still haven't decided on a honeymoon - I am almost thinking we should take a cruise to save $$ but not sure how Bryan feels about that. We had talked about St. Lucia ... so we shall see. Wedding planning sure is fun and I am loving simply every min. of it! SO very thankful for all my supportive family & friends who are making this process so wonderful! LOVE you ALL!
Well that's a quick update with us ...
Have a wonderful MARCH!
