Well it has been a busy few weeks but here were are! I am done working in the Financial Aid office so next time I return to HCC for work I will only being teaching my ABE/GED classes. I am very excited!

We have been working to get our Halloween decorations out but it has been a long process since I was so busy working last week. We have finally gotten the inside decorations up and the porch finished.....well it was finished then I decided I wanted more. We are now in the process of building a ghost with Styrofoam and cheese cloth! Pictures to come!

Kale has been wearing his Buzz Lightyear costume all over the place....literally he even wore it to Ace Hardware the other day! When Erin was cleaning the other day he found Kale's first Halloween costume (Superman) and brought it up for Maks to wear....boy was that a mistake. Kale was not happy to share that costume!

Yesterday we went up to Grandma and Grandpa Dreiling's house to carve pumpkins and play with Marisa and Malea. They are both doing well and all the kids (including Grandma, Grandpa and myself) had fun carving the pumpkins. The littles didn't really get to into the carving they were more entertained by the basketballs!

Maks stayed home from daycare a few days last week with high fevers that we couldn't explain. Finally on Thursday night he started showing signed of a sore throat. We got him right into the Dr. and he was diagnosed with a virus called Hand Foot and Mouth....except he only had the mouth part! They gave him some meds to help and they did. With in one day he was already starting to act more like himself.

Yesterday Kale came to us and told us that he had something in his mouth. We were not sure if he was starting to get the same virus as Maks had but when we looked in his mouth we found that he had a tooth size tissue growth on his gums! It always seems to be something! So I will be calling the dentist tomorrow to see what they say about it! Since yesterday it has popped and reduced in size but I still want to have it looked at.

The Chiefs game is on now so better get back to cheering for them! Still undefeated....Can they continue? Chief's Will!

hope you are getting better… sore throat is not a lot of fun its just uncomfortable and difficult to swallow.

usually, i would take the Nim Jiom Cough Syrup ( ) which has a thick consistency formulation. it coats the throat and includes herbs that are particularly good for that application.

i hope it works on you as well.
