Hey there! What's up? My little guy came home sick from school this morning. He woke up and said both his ears really hurt...but then after some Advil they were fine. Dave looked in his ears and they looked ok, so we sent him to school. Well less than two hours later the nurse called. He's got a 101.5 fever, headache, and stomachache. I'm taking him to his pediatrician later this afternoon. He's prone to Strep so I'm wondering if that's what it is. The school cupcake party had to be postponed; I'm hoping he'll be okay for his home party. I don't think we'll make that call til tomorrow a.m. Luckily I got to do some errands before I had to pick him up. Poor Mason...he was all teary when I got to the school. No fun being sick at birthday time.
I have dinner in the crockpot...I'm trying another one from The Crock Pot Girls, this one's called Balsamic Chicken. I hope it's good, I'll let you know! Has anyone tried the Ranch Bacon Chicken? That was a good recipe!
My sister and her new baby are going home today! They're both doing well. My niece has the cutest chubby cheeks! Both of my kids were little when they were born so they didn't get chubby cheeks until well after birth. Love seeing them right away!
Today in my tart burners, I'm melting Gobble Gobble Goodies (a mixture of pumpkin pie, zucchini bread, and sugar corn pudding) and Pink Sugared Noel Cake (Pink Sugar, Vanilla Bean Noel, and Birthday Cake). Mmmm, it smells good in here! Later I'll light some candles too. It's warm out but I'll pretend it's actual autumn weather.

Have a wonderful day!

  1. Poor Mason ... hope he feels better soon!
    I haven't tried the chicken recipe yet but will next week ... sounds yummy.
    Babies with sweet little fat cheeks are just adorable :) Give him lots of kisses!
    I know your house smells yummy ... I have a caramel candle burning!

  2. Poor Mason! I hope he feels better and ready to party tomorrow. I haven't tried the ranch chicken but I plan to soon. Please let me know how the balsamic chicken turns out.

  3. Oh dear, I hope Mason feels all better real soon! It's such a bummer to be sick for your birthday festivities!

    Your house sounds like it smells wonderful!

    Happy birthday coming up to Annabelle!
