So, this year for Valentine's Day we decided to make it about the kids instead of each other. I figure Valentine's Day is about who you love and I adore my family and any excuse to go out as a family is a great one. So we went to this hamburger joint down the street that has awesome hamburgers and the we went to see the Spiderwick Chronicles. I knew it was a kids movie that was a little fantasy but I didn't really know what it was about. It ended up being a great choice and we all really enjoyed it. I would totally recommend it.
So, Derek made a stop on the way home and got some Valentine's gifts for all of us. For Addie he got this little pig which I will include a couple of videos from that. It is pretty cute. Laura found these little hairbows for her, which were so cute. She had to take them apart and mess with them a little bit to make it work, but it worked and they were super cute.
So this has been a crappy weekend. Addie and I were fighting a stomach bug yesterday and now today. Last night Addie had her first visit to the ER. Don't worry, she's fine. She just woke up in the middle of the night (an immediate reason for concern) and she had a really dry "barking" cough. She seemed to be having trouble swallowing and cried everytime she coughed so I took her in. My big issue with the ER is all the germs, but since I work at the hospital I didn't have to wait in the waiting room with her and headed over to the x-ray department instead to wait. I felt much better about that. Everytime I work at the hospital the first thing I do when I get home is get changed out of my scrubs. Yuck. So, if that wasn't enough for us, Ethan woke up this morning with the same stomach bug. Joyful!!
