Bird Update ~

So yeah, she did not have pink eye... but I am now convinced she has an ear infection.
I had Landon's Two Year check up appointment the next day, so I called to add Hailey to get checked out too. By the time the apt. came her eye was fine, so I did not want to pay $20.00 for the Dr. to tell me she was fine... so I cancelled her apt. AND she was fine until she started waking up in the middle of the night. I was going to call on Monday to set up an apt. for her because the office is closed on weekends, but then I got sick, and I forgot...
So yeah, I got sick on Valentines Day. I had this WONDERFUL plan set up. We were going to surprise daddy at work with cookies the kids had decorated... but by the time I made the cookie dough and it sat in the fridge for the 3-4 hours it was already too late for the surprise. I SUCK! Then I was going to cook him an AMAZING dinner, but I needed to go grocery shopping to get the stuff to make it. I thought I had enough time to go after Matt got home from work, but I was wrong. I was NOT in the mood to take the kids with me. By the time he got home and we waited for Landon got up from his nap, then we went grocery shopping it was already 6 pm. Yeah, NOT making what is going to take over an hour... I am starving. So our Valentines Dinner consisted of El Pollo Loco. GROSS. Well not gross, but I am NOT a fan...
I am not big on spicy stuff. I ordered the Original Pollo Bowl and my mouth was on FIRE! Luckily for me, Matty let me have his Pollo Salad thing that was not as spicy. They should WARN people, or at least give people like me an option like Mild, Medium, or HOT... but no, so I will not be going there again... E.V.E.R...
ANYWAYS... we gave the kids their Valentines presents, and pulled out the cookie dough I had made earlier... I was rolling out the dough and I started to feel sick...
I think El Pollo Loco gave me food poisoning, but I am not sure. It could just be that my body can't handle that CRAZY SPICY CRAP...
LONG story short... Mommy is still sick today, but not too sick to be able to get out of bed and to the computer like yesterday. I hate when I am sick and I still have to take care of the kids. I had to feed them, rolling out of bed to make cereal was a tough task for me. Then I had to make Macaroni and Cheese for lunch because my daughter was begging for it... thank goodness for daddy getting home from work.
So anyways... here are some pictures from Valentines day! :)
 Landon opening his Card from Grandma and Papa Bird... he LOVED it!
 Hailey told me a nice story about the girl on her card from Grandma and Papa. Thanks they loved them!
 We got him a flying toy. He LOVES it, in fact as I type I am playing with him and this toy. He will bring me a spinner and I will send it off and then he will bring it back again! I hope this means he will take a good nap today!!
 Hailey got a My Little Pony, some Princess candies and a little mini balloon. You can see Landon's candies in this picture, he dropped them as soon as he saw the spinner toy! LOL!
 And for "Girls Night Out" I made these... You just make brownies, cut out a shape with cookie cutters, and put melted frosting and sprinkles on the top. YUMMMOOOOO! THANKS Chantelle for the recipe!!
 They were a HIT at Girls Night, and the kids happened to love them too...
 Hailey chewing her Valentine after breakfast. SEE her hair is not ALWAYS done...
and last but not least...
Landon licking his Valentine... we hope you all had a GREAT VALENTINES DAY!!

It's nice to know that sometimes Hailey's hair is as messy as Katelyn's always is. I really do try to do her hair she just messes it up so quick. How do you keep Hailey's hair from getting messed up normally?

Nicole.. I TRY to do her hair everymorning. We eat breakfast, then go potty, get dressed, and do hair. It works out. But sometimes I just do her hair when she is watching morning cartoons. She has learned that is part of the routine... mommy does your hair. :)
