Disney Princesses On Ice

Nana Eisenhart asked if I was taking Ella to the Disney Princesses on Ice. I told her I wasn't planning on it. She said if we wanted to go, she would watch Dean and Ely and pay for Ella and I to go. We had such a fun time! Thanks Donnalee!!!

Halloween 2009 and swine flu

We told Ella to draw a face on this pumpkin and she did this all by herself!I'm still trying to play catch up with my posts. Here are a few pictures of Halloween. Ella was a princess, Dean was Winnie the Pooh and Elysee was Piglet. Ella came to school with me Friday morning and watched the Halloween parade (she loved it!). Then on Halloween (Saturday) we went to McDonald's for breakfast with Nana and TJ.

Later that day my parent's came over and brought dinner, a yummy pizza in the shape of a pumpkin. Then we went to John's parents, where the kids got awesome prizes. Then we came home and went trick-or-treating around our block. We were gone for less than an hour and got a TON of candy! We got the kids to bed at a decent time, then John went to work.

That night I wasn't feeling very good. My whole body was really achy, but I thought it was my arthritis acting up and maybe the weather was changing. When I watched the news and the weather wasn't changing I knew I was getting sick. The entire next day John felt the same way and we were both wearing surgical masks so the kids wouldn't get sick. We suspected H1N1 and we were able to get into the Dr.'s on Monday. The did a test and confirmed that it was the dreaded swine flu! We got on Tamiflu and John immediately started feeling better, but I was getting worse. By Monday night I couldn't even function! I laid in bed with a fever of 103. I called my classroom aid, Cherise, to tell her that I wouldn't be in for a few days and tried to give her lesson plans, but honestly I was delirious and wasn't making sense. Luckily she was awesome and figured it out! By Thursday John and I were back to work, but the kids seemed like they were getting sick. We took them to insta care and yes they all had swine flu! Luckily I was able to take Friday off and then we had the weekend to re coupe. Now hopefully we won't have to worry about swine flu any more. Although it has been a month and Ella still has a cough from it! Who knows what that's about?
