and taken a lot of antibiotics - strep has been going through our house (which is why I haven't been blogging).
Read a lot of books......

Aubrey came home from school on Thursday with a temp of 101. I took her to the doctor that night and she had an upper respiratory infection. Has anyone ever dragged 4 tired children to Target at 8pm to fill a prescription ? I don't recommend it. Needless to say, she spent the next day home with me upset about missing her 100th day of school party. But she was able to attend a Valentine tea party with some of her girlfriends on Saturday.

The kids played outside making igloos and then we played inside. We finally made it out of the house this afternoon to take Aubrey to gymnastics and the roads are clear. School tomorrow.
I made a new recipe for dinner tonight and everyone loved it. Sorry I didn't take any pictures.
I cubed chicken, stir-fried it and then added steamed broccoli and cashews and a bottle of General Tsao's sauce. Yummy! Definitely a keeper.
Hudson learned a new trick today. He rolled across the floor to the stair railing for downstairs and figured out that he can stick his feet between the rails. It kept him occupied for 20 minutes. I'm guessing that is where I am going to keep finding him. He also sat up for about 5 minutes today.
I really don't have anything else to say tonight - going to go watch some Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice.

Hudson, you are now 6 months old (oh where has the time gone?)
You are still nursing, but are also eating solids. You have cereal for breakfast, fruit for lunch and a vegetable for dinner. You are not picky about your food at all, but really seem to like bananas - which is so funny because Mommy doesn't like them.
You don't have any teeth yet, but are certainly drooling like you are going to get them soon.
Today school was cancelled due to "Blizzard 2011" . I'm not sure of the total amount of snowfall but I would guess that snowfall was around 14 inches.
Chase helped Tom try to shovel us out. The drifts were taller than him! The van would have never made it out of our subdivision. As a matter of fact, we have another snow day tomorrow because the plows were working on main roads only today. I think we'll go build a snowman tomorrow.

If you listen closely, you can hear that he says head, shoulders, knees, toes and bad, bad nose! I just love it!!!
The kids went back to school this week and I am attempting to organize and clean the house. My to do list is a mile and half long and Mason, Hudson and I are all sick. Hudson has his first cold and is sooo stuffy. I feel bad for him. We go on Thursday for his check-up and hopefully we will be done with the monitor!
Hope you enjoy the video.

I thought I would highlight some of 2010 as a look back.
