Okay, so Shawn's fever FINALLY broke late last night. He still has a headache, but I see light at the end of the tunnel!!! Whew! Here are the pictures I promised...
These first few are of Hollie carving the pumpkin. What a fiasco this was... We bought the pumpkin a few days before we carved it, and when we opened it up the night before Halloween, it was all moldy inside. So, we had to rush to the store to get another one. Well, guess what, they were sold out. So, we went to another store, and thankfully, they still had pumpkins. We opened this one up, and it was perfect. I bought this really cool pumpkin carving kit, that is really easy and really no carving at all. You just hammer these colored pegs into the pumpkin and when you put the flickering light in, it lights up the colors. It's really neat and the pictures don't do it justice.
These are of Hollie "gutting" the pumpkin... Actually, this was a staged photo. I got to do the dirty work...
Here's Hollie dressed up in her costume. She was Sharpay from High School Musical. She LOVED her long blonde hair, and wore the wig ALL DAY LONG!!! Brooke kept looking at her like, who are you??? So cute. Here's Hollie all diva'd up!
And we can't forget the babies. They were dressed up as pumpkins. Well, just pumpkin onesies, but hey, they looked adorable. I made sure they were dry, fed and rested before I attempted to take these pictures. Brooke just wouldn't hear of it. She was so cranky, and thought the whole picture taking thing was a not so good idea... Kamryn, needless to say, had a hard time focusing on smiling for the camera... LOL!
So, here's Kamryn...
She's definitely packing on the pounds, and catching up with Brooke.
So, last night, Shawn was at his worst. His temperature was 102, and his cough was so bad, that his chest was in so much pain. I called the doctor on call, and had them call in an antibiotic and cough medicine. Well, that turned into a huge ordeal. The pharmacy that I had them call it into, closed right before I got there. I called the doctor back and had the answering service call the doctor, to have him call the prescription into a 24 hours pharmacy. So, while I was picking up the medicine, my friend Cinnamon took Hollie and her daughter Rylee trick or treating. I was so bummed that I missed walking house to house with Hollie. I've never missed a Halloween with her, but I had to get this medicine for Shawn. He was so miserable. Thank you so much Cinnamon for taking them. I appreciate it so much!!! You're awesome and I owe you one!
That's it for now. Enjoy the pictures. More to come later.
