Remember when... This was Emolyn in her chair 6 months ago
And Emolyn now! What a big girl!
She is feeling much better and we have a fun picnic/kickball day today with the college group, Emolyn loves to be involved!
The Thompson household is trying to get set for the Holiday season. It makes me so sad the some of the excitement of Christmas gets lost in the anxiety of Christmas. Like "yeah its coming" and "Oh crap I need to go shopping". The new one person income makes the Christmas shopping a little more difficult. And I have decided we are not getting anything for Emolyn. She wont know and I am sure she will get a ton of goodies from her loving family. Maybe I will wrap some of the toys she already has for photo purposes. or maybe she will just get diapers for Christmas!

Poor Emolyn

I took Emolyn to the Dr today because it has been 10 days and her nose is still runny! Come to find out that this tough little girl has a sinus infection, and two ear infections! You never would have known if not for the runny nose. No fever, she hasn't been irritable, just her usual pleasant self. Poor thing. So today she was 12 lbs 7 oz and her temp was 99.3. Her snot is even clear! Oh well. I knew something was funny, I am glad we took her, but I feel bad she is so sick. Hey we went 8 1/2 months with no illness thats pretty good!
We tried to put some tights on her Sunday before church. Oh wow, she hated it and man were they too big. We thought it was more funny than she did.
So we will be staying in for a few days, which Shawn is not happy about. He likes to take her out and I think he gets a little stir crazy in the house. He got to go to guitar center today while I was at home so he got a little break!

Halloween 08

Halloween got a little frantic this year with our party being on halloween night and it being Emolyns first Halloween! We ended up attending the church fall festival for a short time, mostly to show off Emolyn. But we had just taken Maurice to the beauty parlor (Petsmart) so he came along. Wow, he almost got more attention than Emolyn. His reindeer costume lasted about 2 minutes so he was just a dog this year, which went well with the theme. Emolyn was a cat, I was a mouse and Shawn was cheese. We got a family photo taken at church so when I get that one I will post it. But for now here were a few cute ones.

Madison was an inmate and her parents were police. Jeannette got the badge and Matt got the gun.

Emolyn changed costumes half way thru the party to the less hot doggy costume, but got tuckered out and headed to bed. But she didn't stay down long. She quickly realized the party was still going and stayed strong till 10:30! 
I will be posting soon about the fun decorations and snacks we had, man I love the ideas you find online!
