Germs Germs GO AWAY

Ok so I am totally ready for these nasty little germs to leave my family ALONE! We took Britt for an X-Ray yesterday and the Dr. said still pneumonia in both lungs. Today we took Wyatt in to see what funk he has....pneumonia too! Thank goodness Lysol wipes are on sale at Wal-Greens. We have spent over $225.00 this week on Dr. visits and meds. Not sure how much more I can take. Thankfully I am not nearly as sick as the rest of the family, so I am able to keep up with the daily chores and drive the sicklings around. Kids are NOT happy about being stuck inside and staying down as much as possible. When we got to the Dr. office this morning I noticed a ring around the top of Wyatt's was from him sucking on his gatorade bottle all night. We laughed so hard (after hypo me realized it was nothing serious) :) Well, we rented a couple of movies and PS3 games and are hunkered down for the weekend. We'll see what happens....

It's Official my family has the FUNK!!!!

We just got back from spending the day two different Dr. offices. Brittney has pneumonia and Eric has the the Flu. This junk came out of nowhere, but I am glad I didn't hesitate took take them to the Dr. Wyatt also has a fever and coughing too now. This should be an interesting week with almost all of my family on lockdown at home. I have to give a BIG SHOUTOUT to Ian who has been an AMAZING helper through all of this! Please keep my family in yur prayers for a speedy recover.

The Sick House

When will this funk go away?? Eric was talking last week about how he has dodged the bullet at work and not gotten what everyone at work has had. Apparently it was some pretty bad stuff. When someone had it, they were out for at leat 3-4 days. Well....his luck ran out! Firday afternoon at work he started to not feel well and came home to go straight to bed. He has had a very high fever with chills, coughing, chest pain to whole getup. Last night my Britt started running a fever and today is TOTALLY out of it. Bless her heart she is so dedicated and insisted we stay at church and then afterwards she could rest. We came home today and Britt, Eric, and I stripped out of church clothes and into PJ's and crashed. Tomorrow they are both going to the Dr. so hopefully they will get some good meds and get to feeling better soon. I have had them taking Theraflu, but I guess they need something stronger. It makes me sad to see my babies not feeling well. Thankfully, I only have a touch of what they have! Oh, you are probably wondering where Wyatt and Ian have been in all of this today... while the 3 of us were sleeping, they did play the PS3 a little longer than I would have liked.. but they cleaned up the whole downstairs! Thanks to my little men for holding the fort together!!! I love you guys.

This thing is a Beauty

Some may know that a favorite Mueller hobby is going around at night to see what treasures people throw away. Eric introduced this to me not long after we were dating and it has become a family tradition. My kids call it "garbage digging" although we don't really dig through the trash. If we see a big item and like it, we get it:) This time it was just what I have been looking for to go in the entrance way at the front door. It is a bench with cubbies underneath for storage. My amazing husband got out the furniture polish and it shined so beautifully. The cover matches our living room furniture too! We have been so blessed with some of our findings that if someone is in need we donate to them. It is TRULY AMAZING what people throw away!!

Mueller Life

We haven't had anything that exciting happen lately, but like to keep the blog updated...

We are enjoying some down time before soccer season starts. We have made it a goal that everyone gets showers and ready for bed around 8:00 so we can gather and read the scriptures. I really see a difference it makes in our day and how much kinder we ALL are towards one another. Our next goal is to get Ian back to Seminary. It is so hard with the younger kids and because Eric leaves for work so darn early, it all falls on me to get everyone dressed, fed and where they need to be on time.

I am going to enjoy my time off from my current calling as primary teacher and look forward to anything new that comes my way.

The kids enjoyed their day off from school yesterday eating mac 'n cheese on the pation and playing outside. I too enjoyed that I didn't have school either:) We are going to get out the St. Patricks' Day decorations after school and look forward to having some green and gold around for a bit. That's about it...seems so strange that we are having some down time (we should not jinx it and catch up on some things) Eric is back to getting off work at 4:00, so it will be nice to have him home more:)

My heart is full of love

As Wyatt and I made the treat bags for my Sunday School class last night I couldn't help but think about how thankful I am to be surrounded with such sweet spirits of my Heavenly Father. There was a time when I wanted to be released and go to "Big Sunday School". As things happend it showed me that I am right where I am supposed to be. It once again showed me that He has a plan for me. All the children in Primary are so sweet and I enjoy watching their expressions and hearing their answers when learning about our Saviour. I am too thankful for my own sweet spirits that I get to call my children who bring me such joy (for the most part) into mine and Eric's life. I love my husband and children dearly and am thankful for every moment I have with them.

This Valentine's Day let us Love One Another.

We are back up and running

Last week when I was on the computer, the internet just shut off. My first thought was...oh my did I pay the bill?? Yep, I did:) So, next I call Eric (my hero). I had to wait until he got home and he figured out it was the modem. It is crazy how much we depend on the internet..even the kids need it for homework. Luckily, it was covered under our plan and a new one was shipped!! YIPPEE!! I am spending today catching up on EVERYTHING!! Thankfully, I do not have a homework assignment due this week:)
We are so excited this weekend is Valentine's day. Wyatt is going today to get Valentine cards for his class and something special for his teacher. I think we might do something special with the kids on Sunday (at home, of course) Maybe a special dinner and dessert:) Hope everyone has a HAppy Valentine's Day!!

First Day at the Park

We have lived in our neighborhood for over six months and have just now discovered the wonderful park that is here. Last Thursday we got homework done and had some daylight left, so me and the kids headed off to the park. The kids played basketball and then Wyatt and me headed to the playground. He had the BEST time! Britt soon joined in too. Ian preferred to stay and play basketball (within eye sight and the b-ball court actually locks you in until you swipe your card to get out) . It was nice weather and we enjoyed some outside family time. I can't wait until Spring when we can stay a little longer and pack a picnic.
