Air Show, Peas, Diamonds and a Cold

This weekend was very memorable. It started last Thursday when Avery's nose began running. Being the first time mom that am, I naturally thought she was teething...finally! Even the next day when she stI arted running a fever I still thought she was just going through that natural process of gum breaking, aching, teething. However, that night when both girls were extremely cranky and Atley began sniffling, I knew it wasn't the teeth milemarker....it was their FIRST COLD! I knew they would get one eventually, and what one gets, the other gets. They were very cranky for a few days, as they had never had a cold before, and didn't quite know what to do with all that snot in their nose! With Tylenol every 4 hours and plenty of syringing their little noses, we made it. Today they are definitely on the road to recovery. Phew! Not only did they have colds for a few days, we also had a very eventful weekend. Phillip's youngest brother Matt got engaged to the sweetest girl, Lauren Waeckerle. All day Saturday Phillip and I helped by delivering a surprise letter to her, and then Phillip put flowers on the bench that Matt was proposing by at the Botanical Gardens. Both families celebrated that night at Josh and Julies (Phillip's other brother and his wife).
On Labor Day, Monday, we went with some of our other friends Greg, Leah, Ashley and Darrin to the Spirit of St. Louis Air Show. We put the seats down in the back of the minivan and the girls had a great time playing, eating, and sweating!
Tonight Phillip is in Hannibal (me and the girls are going with him tomorrow) so I am home alone. The girls are in bed and I am making bottles, steaming vegetables, and rambling on and on in this blog.
Here is a picture of my first attempt at steaming peas. They will freeze in the ice cube trays and then I will pop them out and put them in a baggie. Sounds fun huh!? I also did sweet potatoes and made all their bottles for tomorrow.

I just thought I would update ya'll with the newest details in the life of Atley and Avery.
Have a great week!
