Our last week was really a drag, due to a sick baby. Allie was sick pretty much all week and I was up with her what seemed like all night, every night. When she gets sick her temperature gets so high and it kind of freaks me out a little bit. One night she was all the way up to 104.7 and I found myself wondering at what point I should take her to the hospital. Luckily, she seems to be a lot better now, which means a much happier baby and a much more well-rested mommy. I'm sure everyone in my family is thankful for that!
This weekend we raked leaves in the yard, just so we could have the opportunity to jump in them. Emma and Noah loved it. I've never seen two people more thrilled about having yard waste thrown at them.I thought Allie might like it too, so I put her in the leaf pile. I don't know if it was because she wasn't feeling well or if she just isn't into playing in leaves, but she apparently didn't enjoy it nearly as much as her brother and sister!

This looks like a lot of fun and the kids seem to love it.

Those pictures are just darling! Your camera is really amazing. Abbie has a good point. Couldn't you use a cute everyday photo for your Christmas picture since it's so hard to get all three kids to look good at the same time in a posed picture?

Abbie and Sarah, why don't you mention your blogs in your Christmas cards because I'm sure everybody on your Christmas card list would love reading your entertaining blogs?

Poor baby -- I hope she's feeling much better. (and you're getting more sleep!) I love the look on her face in the leaf pile.

I love the last pictures. Allie looks like "what the hell?" as Emma is laughing!

Cute pictures!!! Oh my goodness I would have freaked out too. Bethany had a 103 temp awhile ago and I ended up calling her doctor and ask a nurse, all of our parents. It was horrible. I ended up giving her motrin and tylenol and watching her sleep the whole night. It finally did break. Scary stuff though. Glad she is ok. She is so cute and reminds me of Emma :)

Glad you are getting more rest and that everyone is healthy. Seeing your cute pictures get me excited for our 'leaf-raking just for the fun of it' this weekend.
