We had some run-around time for the past two days!  We found these cute little shoes at Wal-Mart on clearance (for $5!), and just couldn't resist getting them, and adding some funkification (funk-i-fi-cation: n. to decorate and make funky, to individualize) to them!  Here they are before:

And AFTER!  We added some marker-drawn designs (only with Sharpies since she'll be playing in the water on Friday!), and a little ribbon:
It started with her name, then I added a rainbow, some words, and finally filled in with swirls!
We love a good monogram. ; )
Peace . . . Love . . . CURE!
Today we had to take Mary Claire and Ethan back to their doctor-they both have double ear infections...AGAIN!  It's only been two weeks, so they probably never healed.  Their ears suck.  I also found out that Ethan has had EiGhT ear infections this year (and yes, he still has one p.e. tube!).  Ugh.  I just knew when Mary Claire's blood sugar numbers were going up that there was something playing with them.  I never know if it's something she's been exposed to and she's fighting it, OR if it's something that's already materialized (did that make any sense?  I can tell that I'm going to see a cold or virus a couple days before I really see symptoms-she fights it before it shows itself!)

Then we went to see Mr. Popper's Penguins (it's only like the book in that there is a man, he has two kids, and some penguins living with him), (and fought off a nasty 400 and delayed her popcorn-gratification for as long as possible!) and to eat at Shogun (Japanese steak house).  It was good, and Ethan was quite entertained-I guess it's been a while since we last went!  I don't plan to go back really soon though since now for every birthday (there were six while we were there!), they turn off the lights, turn on the strobe lights, and play really loud music.  The music was good, but the lights seriously would cause older people strokes or seizures!  I knew my headache from earlier in the day was ready to rear its ugly head again! (yes, I must be older people!)

Mmmmm....noodles! : )

I finished the American Girl nightgown, but I have to wait till morning to measure the shoulder straps for Mary Claire's!  I'll be glad to have it done..she's asked me a million times!  And she finally came down..a few minutes ago she was site.  It never ends.  I'm really sick of diabetes today, I am just tired of it.  It really seemed to be in our face today. : (

Have extra prayer time tonight?  These precious women of God could use some of our prayer time:
E-for her husband to find a job, for her kids to use self-control
J-for God's grace right now to accept God's will, and for a healthy pregnancy
A-for her baby to hang on, for God's favor, and safe travel

For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.
Matthew 18:20
