Cuts, Carts and Cuteness!

We're celebrating mother's day tommorrow since Trent had to work today- so I thought I'd write about what we've been up to this week!

Gavin was long overdue for a haircut so the kids and I headed over to 'Monkey Dooz' on Tues. Its a really cute kids salon where they play cartoons, have fun cars for the kids to sit in and stylists that are used to the kids moving all over the place! Teag decided that she wanted a haircut too once she saw the pink car so they both ended up getting a trim.

Gav decided he wanted to stand instead of sitting in a car... I think the stylist was more than happy to sit instead! Here he is in the 'cartoon coma', ha.

Teag requested pig tails after her trim and she also got sparkles put in her hair. She was so excited and now asks me for 'sparkle ponies' at home!

After the haircuts, we made a trip to Fred Meyer (grocery store) for a few things. The kids love this store because they have 'car carts' so they can drive while I shop. This was the first time we've gotten a 'car cart' with all three kids- doesn't leave much room for groceries!

Teag's cardiology appointment was rescheduled for this coming wed. so no updates there. But we did end up at the dr.'s office on Friday. Teag was acting a little off towards the end of the week and was really irritable and fussy. Thurs. night we took her temp and it was 102! She didn't have any other symptoms except really red eyes, so friday we went in to have her checked out. The dr. said her throat was really red but that kids her age don't typically get strep (even though its going around here). He was more concerned that she may be showing signs of Kawasaki's disease instead of just having some sort of virus or infection. As soon as I heard this I started to panic- we don't need anything else affecting her heart!! The dr. agreed to try some antibiotics over the weekend and see if she improves. If it is Kawasaki's, he said that her fever and other symptoms won't get any better in the next few days. So we started antibiotics friday night and over the weekend she seems much better and her fever has been gone since saturday. We're praying this means that she's fighting off an infection and nothing worse. She has an appointment in the morning to get checked out again and possibly have some tests run to completely rule out Kawasaki's- say a quick prayer for her if you would!
Teag has really been in to dressing up lately and carrying around her purses- so cute. So since she's not feeling too hot this weekend I thought I'd post a pic from last week. Her shoes kill me- they're so awkward to walk in and so loud! You can hear her walking down the hall from anywhere in the house, ha. My little fancy nancy!

I agree. Those carts don't fit three very well, especially when one is in a carseat. So glad Teag is doing better.
