Poison Oak

28 Jan 2013

This was taken on January 16th. It’s a photo of Lucy and me getting Poison Oak.

It also represents our weekend plans getting canceled:
The kids didn’t get to see snow for the first time.
We missed Nana’s 90th birthday party.
We missed a sleepover with the Nickles.
It’s also two trips to the weekend emergency room, steroids and more steroids. I took Prednizone, which worked, but it’s not good for 3 year olds. She has a strong topical creme.

Lucy, today, is still covered in itchy rash.
That invisible poison oak flattened us.

Can you believe this is right across the street from Clarendon?

Happy 90th Birthday Nana!

I’m so Happy for Nana! January 20th was her 90th Birthday!

Unfortunately Mark and I, and the kids, had to miss her party at the last minute! Oscar had a fever, and I had a weird allergic reaction. Lucy, for the record, was game to go with out us. She was heartbroken to miss the birthday party. So was I!

Cole took these wonderful photos, and he was awesome to let me post them here. :)

Sweet Kiera made pretty rose cupcakes

With her sister, H.L.

And, here’s the little slideshow I made for the lunch:

Last but not least, a Big Thank You to Aunt Julie for organizing the party!
I heard through the grapevine it was a beautiful success.

I’m sorry to say, Nanu’s sister Pam has passed away.
I feel better to think she is in a more comfortable place.
We will miss her so much!

p.s. I like this photo – I think its funny that I’m so sullen. (I’d love to be there now!) Pam looks great, and of course I feel mom’s presence as the photographer. She tells me Harrod’s is right around the corner, and we were just on our way there.
