Tisha's and Matt's birthday yesterday!

We'll start with the day before... the 21st.. we were all feeling a little tired.. all our fault.. honest.. we stayed up WAY too late the night before hanging out.. just a little excited that we'll have some vacation time to see each other...so around noon Matty made me and him these really cool omelettes.. there's two layers of omelette.. sandwiching and topped with salsa and cheese.. surrounded by nachos! mmmmm... really really yummy!

Tisha was feeling ok..

and I got the cakes made and decorated! Thank god I didn't leave that until the morning before the party!

So.. it WOULD Have been awesome.. except one little tiny thing.. Tisha woke up with the flu! Poor thing had the heaves from about 3 am until about.. oh.. noon.. solid... didn't puke again until after dinner.. but that's another story altogether.. we'll get to that one later.

We still had the parties.. of course.. just warned people at the door.. "enter at your own risk" kind of thing..
Tisha slept through most of it and only threw up once with her friends over.. which was enough to scare off some..
She managed to find her appetite around cake time! and I was really happy she got to eat a slice of her cake.. I wasn't even going to offer her any but she threw a fit wanting some of mine.. so I figure it's her birthday... she can puke if she wants to.
but she managed to hold it down and slept for a few hours afterwards.

She barely made it through one present at a time with little snoozes in between...
Tina gave her a really cool cup and a pound puppy! Which she LOVES
She wanted the cup right away and threw a bit of a fit waiting for the guys to fill it up for her.. and in the process of waiting for a full cup.. passed out with the pound puppy.

once she woke up we gave her the cuppy and finished opening her presents...
Here she is with the little stable that Rachel got her
Photobucket
Which is nice.. cuz it came with THREE horses! and Tisha LOVES PONIES!! Also nice my uncle brought her two little ponies with combs.. it was so cute.. she was brushing their hair.. "Di-EEEE" (pretty)
She did not let go of that cup for the rest of the night.. until about 9 pm

even when she was opening presents and reading her cards

My grandma got her an adorable little red and white outfit! Perfect for christmas.. gonna take pics of her in that on boxing day.. so we'll have pics of her in it then.

So.. on to the last puke.. this was actually really funny.. cuz she had been drinking her juice.. and Matt's brother Danny was wanting to pick her up.. he jostled her a bit.. I said "Dan.. don't jostle her.. she just had a drink and she's not feeling well.. she'll puke on you" and he said "Oh she's fine.. I'm not jostling her much" and he jostled her a bit more.. and BLECH.. she puked all over him! It was classic! lol

God I hope christmas goes better.. The last thing I want is another christmas with vomit like last year...

an busy and eventful week

Ok.. Today was a great day for Tisha.. she said her name! and WALKED!!! 4 whole steps!! and thought it was just hilarious and giggled about it each time.
I'm so proud of my little princess!
got a little snap happy with the camera.. she's so cute

I finally finished the mess of Jammies I've been working on for the kids.. 5 pairs for Tisha and two pairs of shorts and two sleep pants for Joey.. and two pairs of sleep pants for Drew. Finished up most of my flannel stash!
Here's some pics of the kids new Jammies.. Tisha is so fond of the set she has on that I can't get it off of her to take pics in the others..
She LOVES these new jammies
I said.. it has animals on it.. she pointed at the sleeve and says.. "SEE??"
and.. the shoes.. she LOVES shoes..
Tisha's fave jammies
has to have pretty shoes on all the time..or she freaks until you give them back to her and put them on.

So.. two days til Tisha and Matt's birthday! I can't wait.. I have to bake the cake and decorate it tomorrow! as well as get the house ready! should be fun.. I've got one more sewing project I'd LIKE to get done by saturday.. we'll see how that ends up.. lol Not sure it's going to happen in the time frame I want because it involves yet another trip to the fabric store.. and I'm not sure I'm up to it.. lol.. no time.

and I baked snowflake cookies yesterday.. I LOVE this cookie cutter set.. unfortunately my beater broke.. so I'm going to have to figure out how to get a new one soon.. sad.. my sewing machine and my beater both dead... anyways.. this cookie cutter set is really cool.. it's the outlines of snowflakes.. and then you cut the designs into them with the little shape cutters.. they're so neat!
