Boy, I am HORRIBLE!!!

I seem to lose track of time. It seems like I just updated and it has already been 6 weeks. Well, let me catch everyone up. Life has been busy. We seem to get busier and busier as the girls get lder I can just imagine what life will offer in a couple of years when they are ALL in school. March ended with a bang. As you may recall from my last post the kids and Jason had all been stricken with the flu and I managed to escape it but I was not spared. I wound on March 19 first being diagnosed with a small case of the flu but by March 25 I was not better and back at the doctor where I was diagnosed with Bronchitis, Pneumonia, and a double ear infection. Needless to say I was feeling pretty rotten.

April has been much better. The girls had Spring Break last week and since I was in school I couldn't do much with them but on Friday, Jason took off from work and we took them to the zoo. It was a treat getting to see the Pandas. That was the only reason I was willing to go in the beginning but it turned out to be a pretty good day. I will try to get those pictures posted soon.

The girls are fully involved in softball now and I will hopefully get some pictures up soon. School is almost over for me for one month and then we start our regular routine of Mom in school and kids everywhere else.

Good Grief

OK, so when I signed in I thought it hadn't been that long since I last updated but to my shock and disbelief it has been almost a month. Well, here we go again let me see if I can condense a full month into a little blog.

We have all been extremely busy. It is hard to believe that we are already in the month of March. I have been busy with school so it should come as no surprise that I have been looking forward to the week of rest and "lounging" when I knew that my Spring Break was the first week of March. I thought I can make it till then and turn off my brain and enjoy myself, well, my family had other plans for me.

It all started on February 27th when Jason woke up with what we both thought was a simple and usual sinus infection. Boy were we wrong by Thursday morning he had a fever of 104 and was shivering. So off to the doctor he went where we learned that he had the dreaded FLU. I went on to school on Thursday and came home to Miss Morgan running a fever and lathgaric and guess what, if you haven't figured it out, after taking her to the doctor on Thursday afternoon she was diagnosed with the flu also. Not surprising since she is her Daddy's little sidekick and the two of them are joined at the hips. Now we learned from our family doctor that there are two types of the flu going around the first lays you out for 4-7 days and the other has you going again within 24 hours. By Saturday, Miss Morgan was up and going again and Jason was STILL down for the count. By Sunday Night, Morgan was good, Jason was still down, I was TIRED and trying to find somewhere else to live (HA HA)and Liv had a fever can I say (AHHHHH!!!!!). So on Monday our Pediatrician called in antibiotics for Liv and to prevent Kerigan from getting it called her in some also. Liv finally returns to school today (Wednesday) and guess what Kerigan gets to stay home cause guess what she has it now. Maybe she will be able to go back to school on Thursday if not at least Friday. I have decided I am moving out, let the sickies sanitize the house and then I will return. No, kidding aside, I wouldn't wish this on anyone. Jason is finally starting to get back on his feet which I have decided that we are stuck together for life because this week there is NO WAY I would ever want to be a single parent, I don't see how they do it (Thanks Mom). Jason has decided to take rest of week off and if we can get everybody back to school maybe I can salvage one or two of my Spring Break days for rest.

We have Softball Evals on Saturday which you know excites the girls because they love Softball but we will see about this year. They will be on seperate teams so we will see how Liv likes it when she is not with the sister. I hope that she will enjoy it because I love watching my girls play ball.

March 20th is a big day at our house, as most of you know, Miss Liv turns the big handful (5) on that day so we are trying to prepare for her party---Hannah Montana Style. I will post pictures after the party.

Well, I have about one more hour to myself before the house starts rising for yet another day. So I am going to sign off and enjoy the peace, quiet, and no beeps of thermometers. I will try to update again soon but in case it is after March 18th I want to send out special birthday wishes to my dear friend----Angela. Happy Birthday Girl and once again thanks for the other night.

Talk to you all soon.

Well, Well,

Well, it wouldn't be the OK Fab Five if we were not posting late. I don't know really where to begin but I can say that we have been busy. We have ALL had some knd of crud over the last month and I am at this point sick and tired of everyone being sick. Not much out of the ordinary for us but I thought I would share with you that our very close friends from church, Zach and Lisa Brown, who you all have been praying for finally welcomed their little boy, Zachary Christopher on January 29th. I will post some pictures of him after I complete this blog. We are getting ready to register for softball, hard to believe it's that time of year again. So like I was saying not much going on here.

Ok, so I am little late

I didn't realized until I signed on tonight that it had been so long since I last wrote everyone. We have been busy but not to busy to celebrate the love of each other and enjoy being a family. Jason and I celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary on January 8th. It amazes me every year that it has been as long as it has. I still feel kinda young so when you put into prospective that we have been married 8 years it just blows me away. I started back to school also on January 8th, I am taking 4 classes and I can say that I am enjoying it but it is kicking my butt. I have never taken 4 classes in college so that's big change but all of freetime is completely spent on school. But hey, May 2010 will be here before I know and I will be greatful when I have that degree and that accomplishment behind me. The girls continue to grow like little weeds. Kerigan is enjoying the Target program, Liv is counting down the days until her birthday (60 to be exact), and Morgan, well, she is my angel and my little bundle that is ALWAYS on the go. She is mumbling a lot now but she truly thinks she is talking so listening to her is quite humorous. Today, we had snow for the second time in a week and the first time in 2 yrs here in Georgia and it was absolutley gorgeous and the two older ones enjoyed it but Morgan hated it (mildly speaking). When I get the pictures I will post some. Well, I will sign off for tonight and try to remember to update sooner next time.

Christmas 2007

Well, we survived yet another Christmas. I believe our house "threw up" Toys R Us in it. Between Santa, Us, and Family I can say that the girls had a HUGE Christmas. Santa brought a pop up tent with Disney Princesses on it (let me tell you this tent comes up to Jason's chin, he also brought a shopping cart and an easel/chalkboard combo. As Santa was getting ready to leave he must have got caught in our fireplace because some of his suit was stuck to our fireplace (pictures will soon be posted so you can see). Jason and I got the girls just about everything else that you could imagine: books, nail polish, WebKins, playdough, Globe for Kerigan, movies, CD for Liv, and the list is so long I can't even remember. Mimi and Papa got them each an interactive doll that came with a bed, stroller, and highchair, clothes, character pillows (lightening McQueen for Liv and Tinkerbell for Kerigan). Morgan got ALOT of noisy toys but that okay she having a blast. My mom got them two XBOX 360 controllers with three games and snowglobes and a movie. Morgan got a tricycle and shoes (much needed). Other Family gifts consisted of oh my I can't even remember. But you get my drift it was a BIG Christmas at the OKelley house.

In other news, Kerigan made the Target program at school. For those of you not familiar with this program it is a full day out of the classroom with kids that think like she does. In other words, the gifted program, she obviously gets that from her dad because I surely don't have the brains sfor the gifted program.

The girls and I all return to school on January 8th, I am looking forward to continuing on towards my degree and the girls need the consistency of school already. Also on January 8th, Jason and I will celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary man that seems strange that we have been married for 8 yrs.

Please remember our dear friends Zach and Lisa in your prayers. Lisa is 33 weeks pregnant and is on complete bed rest. She is due on February 12th but at this point the doctors are just trying to get little man to stay in until at least January 15th.

We pray that each of you has a great rest of 2007 and a blessed beginning to 2008. We will update in 08. (Hey I made a rhyme).

Is it really time?

So where has the time gone? It is unbelievable that Christmas is only 10 days away. The OK Fab Five has been very busy the last 11 days so let me update you. Jason and I were involved in our Christmas Program at church so up until last Sunday evening we were practically living up at our church. Now, Jason is involved as the keyboardist at the Christmas Play for Kennesaw First Baptist this weekend. This past Monday we surprised the girls with checking them out of school early and taking them to Cheesecake Factory and a visit with Santa. Also, on Monday we had our dear friends Zach and Lisa and Eddie, Molly and Eli all over for dinner which was alot of fun. On Tuesday, Morgan was diagnosed with a sinus infection so you can imagine how grumpy an 18 month old with a sinus infection can be. Then on Wednesday, Kerigan was diagnosed with bronchitis so she was out of school on Thursday and Friday. We have been trying to get everybody well so that we can try to enjoy our last week before the holidays truly get into full force. I want to thank you all for your prayers of my friend, Angela as she had surgery on the 7th and came through it well and is slowly recuperating. So until next time the OK Fab Five is signing off.

Where did time go?

Ok, so back in August I said that I was going to do alot better with this. Now look 2 more months have passed by and I am SO far behind. I am going to try this differently this go around with a little encourgement from a friend in Tampa. I have decided to see how this goes. Over the last couple of months we have been extremely busy--Jason and I have grown in our marriage after a difficult couple of weeks in October but we learned that we can just about weather any storm that we are put in with the help of God, friends, and family. It was truly a growing process for me and a HUGE learning lesson also. I will not elaborate any further...but I would appreciate any prayers anyone could still send our way. The girls have grown so much. Kerigan has been testing for the Target program and is loving it. She claims the testing is extremely easy so we will see what they tell us once it is all over. Liv, well, what can I say? She is my little mess. Her teacher says she is extremely bright too and I don't mean to brag but since I not even close to being bright they must get it from their Dad's side and for that I am greatful. Morgan is into EVERYTHING. We recently had to put locks on our cabinets which I NEVER had to do with the others so you can tell she keeps us hopping. I am wrapping up my first semester back at school full time and starting January 8th I will be taking 4 classes so we will be studying ALOT at the O'Kelley household. Since my last post, our dear friends Zach and Lisa (their picture is on the right side) found out they are expecting a baby boy and tonight she told me that they plan to name him Zachary Christopher. I told her I was stuck on little big man if she didn't mind. I am so excited for them. Please keep me in your prayers as I have an econ final on Tuesday and need to do well. I am going to try a few different things to keep this more current so please bear with me. I plan to post new pictures soon so keep watching. We are in the Church christmas program this week so it will be busy at our house once again this weekend. Also, before I let you go one of my dearest friends and blog readers is having surgery on Friday and could use as many prayers as we can possibly give her, please remember Angela and I will send an update when I hear how she is. For tonight I am signing off.
