We had a pretty good weekend. On Saturday the kids & I went to a birthday party for a homeschooled friend that was turning 4. The kids had a blast with the bouncey house they had for the party & all the crafts. The time was pushed up a few hours because of a big band of storms & the cold front heading towards us. We did good though & managed to get about 1/3 of the way home before the rain arrived. Definitely a good thing to bump up the party or the kids wouldn't have even had an hour of fun before the onslaught began. Corey got some pre-trip stuff taken care of (special adaptor for his laptop, hair cut,etc). We headed out for a nice dinner & picked up a few things we needed to make the Valentine treats and have handy for the upcoming week. Alex went to bed a little early (misbehaving & tired) and Morgan stayed up with us watching some of the Olympic coverage. She's really interested in the figure skating & pairs. Although she thought the luge competition was cool because they went so fast.

Today we spent hanging out together enjoying time with Corey. He was goofing around with Morgan, tickling her & rubbing his trimmed, short goatee/beard on her. She was laughing & broke free and I noticed hives on her shoulder and when I started checking her out you could just see more hives popping up. Within a minute she had them all over the right side of her face (hairline, by her eye, cheek, ear lobe, down her neck & on her shoulder). The only thing we can figure is that the cat had been snuggling with Corey earlier and somehow his beard rubbing & scratching on Morgan irritated her enough to cause a reaction from the cat. We gave her some Benadryl & got her in the tub to get her washed off. It took a little while but they started going away. Then the Benadryl kicked in & she crashed out for 2 hours on the couch. LOL! Corey has been busy packing and we made some apple muffins for our service project tomorrow. Our Camp Fire group is taking Valentines and homemade goodies to the Veteran's nursing home near us. The kids made Valentines last week. We take Corey to the airport in the morning, then some school and then our service project. At some point we will be making some treats to take with us on Tuesday when we meet friends at the park for some fun and friendship.

We talked to my mom several times this weekend. She got snow off & on over the weekend and was sharing with the kids. Our trip is less than a week away and we are all getting excited.
