Grandma and Pee-Paw visit

We had the pleasure of having Belle and John (aka Grandma and Pee-Paw) visit with us today. It is always so nice when they come. We ate at Texas Roadhouse for a birthday lunch (Mark and Belle's are coming up next week). Mark and I had never been and we all enjoyed it. Before and after lunch Abigail played with Pee-Paw in the leaves. She had a blast. Enjoy the pictures.

Happy Thanksgiving

I am very thankful for my family. God has blessed us with such a loving and caring family. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday by far. It is a time for me to reflect on all of God's blessings and also to spend quality time with family. We got up early this morning and headed to Elizabeth City to have Thanksgiving dinner with my mom's side of the family. As always the food was delicious. Thank you God for my family! I wish we could have stayed longer but Mark worked lastnight and has to work tonight. Enjoy the pictures.

More lotion

Abigail got into more lotion. This time it was a bottle of her baby lotion. She was supposed to be napping but she had other ideas. She sat on her bed and unscrewed the top. Lotion was on her arms, legs and on the bed sheet. Guess we have to hide all the lotions! Mark got a picture this time.

Abigail's "friends"

No wonder she plays instead of napping!

Sneaky girl

Abigail was a sneaky little girl this morning. She was so quiet when she got up that Mark didn’t hear her. She came in our bedroom and got my lotion. She spread it all over her arms and legs and then the hallway walls and carpet. Nice surprise for Mark to clean up while I’m at work. Mark didn't take any pictures but I can just imagine the mess!

The sick bug has attacked the Robinson household. Mark went to Patient First on Sunday morning with an aweful cough. His diagnosis was an upper respiratory infection. The doctor gave him cough medicine and an antibiotic. I had been sick to my stomach since early Friday morning and got so weak Sunday afternoon. Mark took me to Patient First but they wanted me to go to the ER just in case I had some intestinal blockage. Thankfully, my parents were still in town from Abigail's birthday party and were able to watch Abigail while we were at the ER. After almost 3 hours in the ER, blood work, 2 iv's of fluids and an abdominal CT scan, my diagnosis was a stomach virus. The doctor said that it had to work itself out of my system and could take 7 days to clear up. Those were some miserable days! Once we got home from the ER, Abigail woke up vomitting. The next day she had diarrhea and more vomitting. We took her to Patient First and her diagnosis was strep throat and stomach virus. The doctor gave her antibiotics for the strep throat and suggested bland food for the stomach virus. We have been quite a sick bunch. Please pray for quick and complete healing for all of us.

Happy Birthday Papa!

Just wanted to wish my dad (aka Papa) a Happy Birthday today! We love you! Thank you so much for coming for the weekend. We truly enjoyed having you and Mom visit. Sorry we were all so sick and that you both got sick too.
