What mother lets their child have a Carmel egg after a bath??
Mackey thinks she is a big kid as Paxton allows her to watch cartoons on his sleeping bag...notice the spit up on the shirt
Our precious Mackey...
Me and my two love bugs
Jessica, Paxton, and I after the devastation
Aggie Upset:

Rusty said last night that he thought he would have to call in sick to work. We had a little get together at our house to watch the BIG game last night...if you have never experienced watching a game with Rusty, you are really missing out. I think Grandpat enjoys watching sports with Rusty just for the entertainment of Rusty. Thankfully Tessa did not have a water bottle embedded in her head last night after 1.1 seconds were removed from the clock. They had a good run, but we believed they were going all the the depression is hard to handle. I spoke to Rusty late morning and he stated that he was still nauseous. I can only imagine Paxton and Mackey's competitive nature, they come by it honestly.

Update: Despite a slow weight gain last week Mackey has begun to lose weight (3 1/2 months and she weighs 9.22)- She is a skinny mini although she comes from a line of fairly small women we are still having to monitor it very closely.I swear this month I have paid for the pediatricians kid's college. We had a series of upper GI test done this week and so far the conclusion is that she has Reflux. I am feeding her about every 2 hours and she spits up most of it. We are on 2 medications that we take each 4 times a day and getting weighed every week. So all this equals a very tired mom. Hopefully we will begin to gain the LBS soon.

She loved her Uncle Randy
Paxton's Favorite..He was amazed at how large the were

Kar-Kar teaching him how to get water everywhere...aren't their tiny bottoms cute.

Paxton "The aggresor" least their related. Drew is obviously not that into it.

We successfully have tubes in our ears and we are now speaking a mile a minute. This week was very eventful. From Wed. to Fri. we had the Hagens come to visit and Paxton just loves him some "Kar-Kar" that is his name for Karleigh. We went to the Dallas Zoo and mostly watched some Aggie Basketball...Now in the Sweet 16! Katrina and I we even able to speed away and do the 4 wheel trails out by our house...while the guys watched the children. Cousin Drew, Uncle Randy and Aunt Tonya ventured up here Fri through Sunday. We had a lot of fun just hanging out with them and playing. We recently borrowed the neighbors play scape and Paxton was so funny when he got down there he said" WOW". He had such a cute smile...he has learned to go down the big boy slide head first and backward on his back. He is such a dare devil. Mackey is full of smiles now, I think she is going to take after her brother and flirt with everyone. Hopefully this week we will officially have grass in our backyard...praise the Lord. I am so tired of dirt being tracked in. That is extremely stressful for a clean freak like myself...thanks Whitey. We have been LOVING the weather!!When Rusty gets home we have been staying out till dark playing outside.

At the Park playing with Scooter.
Isn't she sweet?
Right before attack of the Ear
Poor many can I pile in??? Annie looks worried
I could not resist

Breathing Treatments are back.
Mackey and Anabelle

After 5 trips the pediatrician, one trip to the ER(for Paxton), and LOTS of Tylenol...we will officially have tubes placed in Paxton's ears on Thursday. We have had quite the eventful time at our house: I will break it down for you numerically.
1) Kate and precious Anabelle come to visit for a couple days. Mackey and Paxton are both feeling crummy...with drugs Paxton is able to make the trip to the mall playgroup.
2) Paxton is on breathing treatments and is semi OK with them.
3) Trip to the ER at 0400 and then we stay at the hospital for our scheduled 0830 appt with the ENT. Paxton is now on Tylenol with Codeine...but still not asleep...will have tubes on Thursday (keep us in your prayers)
4) We get our $850.00 electricity bill...looks like I am going back to work full time to pay for A/C.
5) Mackey has more junk in her nose than a grown up...I think it is a cold but figured I better go to the Dr.
6) Mackey has an ear infection in both ears..smallest child the pediatrician has ever seen with ear infection.
7) Did I mention that both children now on Augmentin and having LOTS of diarrhea...we spent $45 in diapers this week at the store.
8) Rusty calls from work he is throwing up and thinks he is coming down with something...Like a great wife I tell him not to come home, maybe you can sleep somewhere else...Can you tell weary mom whose sympathy is being beat down. (He came home to dinner and a television night, he did sleep upstairs though)
9) Builder comes out and they find a 3inch screw in the coil to the A/C unit...tells me things I don't understand and then leaves saying he will bring a new unit out tomorrow. No heat or A/C tonight...I don't have to go back to work now.
10) Rusty and I are going to the Maverick Basketball Game tonight...I have never been so I am excited. However we will miss SueSue playing basketball on a DONKEY...I hope this on tape!! It is really true, a donkey.
