It's been one of those weeks!

Why is it that everything seems to happen all at once....its been crazzzy this week. I can't really get into all of it because it's not exactly mine to tell. But lets just say that I'm searching for someone, praying for others and trying to figure out what the problem is. And it was Jareds birthday this week. So I will start with the good.

My beautiful husband and his brother Derek talking about music like they always do. I got him tickets to the Ben Folds concert coming up and I think him Derek can talk about songs they like and different albums for hours. So this week I've been listening to his songs so I can sing along at the concert....although I don't know that it helps much since I never know the words to songs and just make up my own lyrics.
I am the first to admit I am no genius at making cakes or decorating them. I got this idea from my cousin Pattys birthday cake. So I tried it with Jareds since his favorite candy right now are the crazy core skittles.

Blowing out the candles and no they were not trick candles this time...I totally learned my lesson on that one.

Jared took this pic of me even though my hair looks a little wild...its okay that was at the end of the party and I forgot to take more pics of everyone that was there. I hate it when I do that.

This is the little friend that came to visit us last night. Isn't he cute? We have a ton of these around our house and they make some pretty crazy noises at night. We think they may be the offspring of the tadpoles we raised a couple of summers ago because we don't remember them being around before then and now we realize what can happen when you introduce a new species into your environment. But I don't mind them I like their music.

Now for the bad...... So this is what else happened last night. Amber Mae was having a bad allergic reaction to something and I am yet to figure out what it is (I'm going to have to do some mommy detective work like Rachel) but it got so bad last night she was swollen from head to toe and red and itchy...that picture is after the fact because I was just trying to maintain my sanity at the time I wasn't thinking about taking pictures, so you really aren't seeing how bad it we ended up going to the Emergency Room last night and being there till 2 they could give her some steroid medicine. She was better this morning, not as swollen but still itching some.

You can see her stomach is bruised where she had been itching so much...she's like that on the inside of her legs too. It was so sad to see her so miserable like that. Now I just need to figure out what it was that make her react like that. If you saw her on Sunday you saw how she is allergic to mosquitos, the side of her face was all swollen...well last night was so much worse than Sunday....she hardly looked recognizable.

POOR BABY. That looks miserable.

Oh, I'm so sorry for Amber Mae! Poor little girl! I hope you can figure it out soon, allergies are NO FUN at all especially when you feel helpless because you don't know what is causing them! Happy birthday Jared, that's exciting that you guys are going to the concert!

Amber Mae has been a train wreck lately, with the mosquito bites and now this, oy! I saw that she did have a swollen eye on Sunday, a bite there too huh?

Jared's cake looked festive, loved the skittles, but no trick candles, come on! Love ya lots! :)

I hope she's feeling better. Sounds like she's having a pretty serious reaction to something. Hope you figure it out soon.
