Carrie had to go the hospital yesterday. She went into labor at five in the morning. She is 33½ weeks pregnant. The hospital was able to stop the contractions after four hours and them sent here home. She is on Terbutaline. She is on bed rest for the next 2 weeks until she is at least I 36 weeks along.
We are keeping Nicky for the two weeks that Carrie is on bed rest. This morning, after we saw Brian off on the bus, Nicky drew some pictures for most of the day on big sheets of paper that I have. He drew Sponge Bob’s pineapple house, Mr. Krabbs, Patrick and Plankton. He also scribbled out two pools-one for me and him. He wanted me to write Grammy and Nicky over the pools. Of course his pool was bigger. *smile*
I pray that everything is going to be all right for Carrie and the baby.
Brian got his report card and made the honor roll.
Go, Brian! We are so proud of you.
Last Thursday I made half of a recipe of Butter Cupcakes. The full recipe calls for five eggs. Not being able to half five eggs, I just used two extra-large eggs. They came out delicious. These cupcakes have a hint of almond flavor. I decorated them keeping Halloween in mind. I topped them off with a marshmallow creme frosting
I find that my presence is getting less and less here on my blog. I have been over on Face Book. My sister and Carrie are on Face Book and I go there often to interact with them. I do miss my blog and feel like I have neglected an old friend. Also, on the other hand, I haven’t had much to write about.
I am still working on the baby’s afghan for my soon to be granddaughter. I am doing a little on it each day.
