Strep throat

Yesterday I came home from work and started feeling really sick. My throat really started to hurt. As the evening progressed I started feeling worse. I took night-time cold medicine, hoping that would help but sadly no. Shelby stayed up all night crying and being sick so this morning we headed off to the doctor. Since we were both being seen for the same thing the doctor only had to swab my throat. And, the diagnosis? We have strep throat. I am so sick of having strep throat. When I was younger I had strep about 4-5 times a year. They talked about having my tonsils taken out. Once they started talking about that, I started to get better. Luckily! I like my tonsils! This is the first time I've had strep in about 7 years. They have come out with something really cool. Shelby and I got shots of penicillin. I always had to have pills. Don't you love the miracle of science? I do. Anyway, stay away from us for a few days unless you want to be sick and dying!

Bump it up!

Living in Idaho is really interesting with all the funny hairstyles. We have always made fun of the "Idaho Hump" and the "Utah Bump" and of course the notorious "Hibbard Haystack." For those of you who don't know Hibbard is outside of Rexburg. It's the area where Jordan's parents live. Anyway, I saw this commercial on TV just the other day. I was walking out of the room and stopped because I was mesmerized. Who would ever think of a product to make your hair have a bump? Keep in mind this is not a joke!
Here is a picture of what a bumpit can do for you!
As you can see, I got this off of a news channel website.
Here is the video:
If it doesn't work you might have to copy and paste it in a new window. I guarantee that it will be worth the effort.

Be Careful what you wish for!

I've been wanting the snow to come for some time now. Finally, it has come. It snowed a little bit last week but last night it dumped a few inches and now it is snowing and blowing. It is so cold out and you can barely see. Now, I'm wondering why I was wishing for the snow. I think that I always remember the fun times like sledding, building snowmen, and just overall fun times. What I forget about is the COLD, shoveling snow, sliding around in your car. Oh, well, it's still beautiful! Here's the view from our house this morning at 7:30.

This is after I shoveled the walk and Jordan is in the process of snow blowing the sidewalk in front of our house. I think the camera makes the snow look a lot worst than it really is. What you can't see is the snow blowing down the street.
Here is Jordan snow blowing the sidewalk. I don't know what we would do without that snowblower. Oh wait yes I do. We have to shovel by hand and it takes about three times as long. How do we know? Because last year our neighbors borrowed the snowblower and broke it within 10 minutes. They didn't tell us about it until Jordan asked for it back. Then, they were going to fix it (yeah right). We got it back about 6 months later in the same state. Jordan was able to fix it in about a day. I'm glad my husband is mechanical!

Shelby's Hair

Lately Shelby's hair has been growing like crazy so I've have tried to do different hairstyles. I found this blog that is over on the sidebar that has different princess hairstyles. Anyway, this is what we've been up to these days.

Here is my first attempt at a Princess hair. Can you guess which Princess she is supposed to be? Okay, she's not really a princess but she's supposed to be Tinkerbell.

This is just my experimenting with braiding her hair. It would have turned out a lot better if she would have sat still.
Shelby is kind of being potty trained right now. You can see her potty in the background. She thought she was being pretty funny putting the toilet seat on her head but I just thought it was gross!

Jordan's grandma put rollers in Shelby's hair and to keep her from messing them up she put this hat on her head. This hat was Jordan's great-grandmothers. Basically, the top part is netting and it has a ring that you can move to open the top so you can blow dry your hair.
