It's her birthday!!

My baby turned 8 today. I can't believe it. But it is true at 11:20 pm eight years ago today I had my first baby a little girl. She is so grown up. we had a party for her yesterday at Buildabear. It was great she took to friends and then her sister and cousins. Then we went to the Nestle Toll house Cafe. for a cookie cake. No fuss and no mess to clean up afterward. Awesome. I made her a super cute skirt and top to wear so she would have a special birthday outfit. It was pretty rockin if I do say so my self.

Well, The red spots on her legs are fading. Today I notice a couple of new ones but none as major as the ones on Tuesday. BUT it has been a very busy weekend. Thursday my little one Reace started to run a fever. Since we had been to the doctor twice this week and she didn't seem to have any other symptoms I gave it a day. ack! on Friday it went up to 102 so I took her in. Just a virus. No Strep no ear infection. Just a random virus. Yeah. Have I mentioned that Friday night was Kaylyn's pep squads lock-in. At my Church. And I am the Spirit mom. and I hadn't finished the end of year gifts. YEAH!!! Okay. I rushed home finished the picture frames and Embroidered bags I made for all 22 girls. Sent my parents up to the church to get it open for the girls but forgot to give them the check. DUH. Well the delivery guy was nice enough to leave the pizzas while he made the other deliveries and come back for the check. the girls start getting dropped off and I begin to realize no one is planning on staying the night but ME!! NOT GOOD. The girls are going nuts, the bows haven't been glued on the frames, one mom left her 4 year old son as well as the 8 year old cheerleader, and I just realized Kaylyn is breaking out in hives again. We ended up having to call all the parents to pick up their daughters at 11:00. I think they had fun though. One girl brought her Karaoke and they sang Hannah Montana, HSM, and Camp Rock songs. Then watched a movie till the parents came. Not quite the party I had planned but not too bad. But that was my Friday. Saturday wasn't bad and Sunday will surely be better.

Of course....

On Tuesday my daughter comes home from school covered in a red rash all over her legs. I freak out and rush her to her doctor. Turns out she has an ear infection and HSP. It has this long name I never remember but it is a form of vasculitis. the capillaries in her legs are swelling and hemorrhaging. That isn't even the bad part. It can also effect her kidneys and intestines. It causes High blood pressure and arthritis in the hips knees and ankles. Right now her ankles are swollen and hurting along with the rash. So far though that has been the worst of her symptoms. Her kidneys have been fine. Then she had blood drawn yesterday and broke out in hives. So back to the doctor we go. I can't take much more, not to mention my wallet with the doctors visits. So she is home this week and hopefully will be back to school on Monday, well Tuesday, they have Monday off.

Scrap Quilt??? I can do it!!!

I decided I would sew along with Kim on the YCMT blog and make a scrap quilt. Today when she posted the instructions for step three I realized I had better get started if I was going to finish at the same time. So today I sat down and spent the day cutting, sewing, and ironing but I did it I am ready for step 4. Now to wait......

It's a hit!!

I got three presents made before the party on Saturday and My Daughter's friend loved all of them. Well he loved the pillow with his name on it and the blanket with his name on it the pj's were okay. but he will enjoy them I'm sure. It was all so easy to put together. I used the Kimberbell font + pillow instruction from SWAK to make the pillow. and then used the same font to embroider his name onto the fleece for the blanket. My daughter and her best friend tied all the edges to finish the blanket. Super cute. I used the easy fit pant instructions to make the pj bottoms and a plain green tee for the top.

Nailed It!!

Okay of the gifts I got to finish everyone loved them. Unfortunately for some they did not recieve the super cute gift I had planned for them because I ran out of time. I did get to make pj pants using Carla C's pattern for all of my husbands cousins boys the yougest was so cute he is 2 and when I took them out of the bag to hold them up to him he got mad. He told me "My Pajamas. Where the shirt??? " I was so glad they liked them. The older kids seemed to enjoy the I spy bags but I'm not really sure they understood them the oldest is only 7. My girls loved the dolls I made and the worms. I am still trying to get all the pictures loaded on my computer so I can post them. Right now I am working on a birthday present for one of my daughters friends from school. Of course I waited till tonight to make it and the party is tomorow. Oh well I will get something done. LOL
