Lots of posts!

Well, I am going to do THREE posts today!

I made one for Brycen's 7 Month Birthday and one about Thompson over a week ago and never posted them! Oops! I wanted to add pictures, and well... laziness got the better part of me! :)

So, last week I had a very dear friend of mine, Bethany, come visit! She got here on Sunday and left Friday and I so enjoyed having someone to talk to and hang out with. I met her back in 2005 while we both worked for the same bank. Over the years, we haven't got to talk and hang out as much as we would've liked, but am so glad that we have been for the past few months.

While she was here, we went to the beach and to the San Diego Zoo. I wish we could have done more, but for 1) The sun REFUSED to make an appearance the entire time she was here. 2) Brycen got sick on Wednesday. :(

Brycen ended up getting a viral infection that caused a major, full body rash. It was horrible! It didn't seem to bother him too much, but it looked so bad. Oh, it broke my heart. I noticed it at the zoo Wednesday, but thought he might be getting a heat rash. But then it only got worse on Thursday, so I called the Ped's office and the nurse said that they couldn't get him in that day so we made an appt. for the next day. Well by that afternoon his whole face was covered in the rash. So I called back to the dr's and they told me to take him to the emergency room. So I did and the dr. there didn't even know what was wrong with him. He said it could have been prickly heat rash or more viral. ??? (Thanks, dude. Glad I sat in the emergency room for 1.5hrs for you to tell me what I already knew!!) So he prescribed benadryl and we went home. The next day, I took him for his appt and the dr there was great! He was really enthusiastic (which I love!!) and really seemed to know what he was talking about (that's important too, ha!!!). He said that it was definitely a viral rash, something along the lines of Roseola since it wasn't going away, he was running a slight fever, and it didn't itch. FYI, a viral rash doesn't itch, a heat rash does. So he said to keep him on the benadryl and come back if it's not better in a week. Glad to report that it is all gone! Brycen either has allergies or a cold, but the poor boy's nose is runny. :(

We also finally got Brycen's crib together! That was another fiasco! I made several trips to Lowe's and Home Depot trying to find screws to fit it. Apparently the movers lost half of the screws that went to it. It was either find new screws or buy a new crib. Remember we also had to sand, stain, and seal the sides of the crib where Thompson gnawed on it like a beaver??? This has definitely been an ordeal! Well, I bought some screws the other day, but they were too short. So after fit, I decided to just buy a new crib. So I went to Wal-Mart, bought one, got it home, and started to put it together. Well for some reason, there was a wooden dowel shoved in one of the holes! For the life of me, I could not get it out. I figured this was a sign that I didn't need to buy a new crib. So... I took it back to Wal-Mart and went to ACE Hardware and found some bolts. Guess what?! They fit!! So big boy now has a bed that he loves! I am going to finish the room this week and then I will post pictures.

We went to Chuck E. Cheese on Saturday night. Thompson had a ball!!!

Robert graduates his students today! YAY!!! So excited for a down month with him. He works a lot when he is on cycle.

I made a cake for him to take to work today, but he rode his bike and forgot it. So, I guess my neighbors will be getting another treat from us! But I wanted to share the recipe with you! It is so simple, but yet so yummy!

Buttterfinger Cake

1 box of Chocolate cake mix (Chocolate Fudge or Devil's Food)
1 can of Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 small tub of Cool Whip
1 block of Cream Cheese
3 or 4 regular size Butterfinger bars

Bake your cake according to the box. When it is done and still hot, poke holes all over it and pour the can of SCM all over it! Then let it cool completely. With a mixer, cream your cream cheese. Then fold it the tub of Cool Whip. Be careful not to deflate the Cool Whip. Spread over cake once it is done cooling. Then smash up the Butterfingers in a ziplock bag with a rolling pin, bottom of a glass, or something heavy. Sprinkle on top. Refridgerate and serve!!!

Let me tell you, this was so yummy! I made it last night and couldn't wait to try it this morning! ha! I don't know about you all, but I could drink SCM like water! Oh, it is so bad for you!

But here is the cake!
I made 2 8x8's.

Another recipe that I made last night was good too. I kind of just improvised on it.

Cream Cheese Chicken Crescent Rolls

2-3 roasted chicken breasts, cubed
1 block cream cheese
1/2 onion, diced
olive oil and butter
1 tube of crescent rolls

Add butter and olive oil to a pan and cook your onions. Once they are done put them on a paper towel to drain. Mix chicken, cream cheese, onions, salt, and pepper together in a bowl. Roll out your crescent rolls and spoon mixture onto the large area of the dough. Then roll up to form a crescent roll. I sprayed the tops of mine with the butter spray. Bake at 375 for about 15 minutes or until golden brown on top.

Oh these were delish! Robert ate like 4 of them!
