so what I assumed was a little bug turned out to be a week long of feeling icky and having stomach issues. fun....
then payton felt ill and came home early from school last tuesday and stayed home wednesday. took her to the doctor and she had strep. we pumped her full of meds and she did go to school for her birthday last thursday. it was only a half day because of conferences and she really, really didn't want to miss. daddy, ethan and I brought cupcakes before school let out at 11:30.
conferences were great! glowing reports for both payton and brenden. so, so proud of our kiddos.
had payton's big birthday party for her girlfriends saturday afternoon. we did crafts, ate pizza and cupcakes and just had a great time. my mom took the boys and chad had to work a few hours, so it was just me and the girls. so fun. loved having this party for pay and she had such a good time.
and after the party, payton's best friend (the little girl in the pink sweatshirt) stayed and brenden invited a neighborhood friend and we took them to the corn maze. fun time. such a nice setup that this family from church does as a fundraiser for the church youth.
ok....off to afternoon halloween parties at school and getting ready for some trick or treating out in the brrrr cold tonight! everyone have a safe and happy Halloween!
