Darren is sick. I think it is just a cold...he hasn't said much and has slept pretty much all day long. Ella has a cold. I know she doesn't feel well because she is so clingy and whiny. I think her ears are bothering her. The good news is that after fighting a nap for well over an hour she finally fell asleep and slept for 4 hours!!!
My computer has a virus. I spent several hours last night attempting to get rid of it. I was unsuccessful. I'm very frustrated and about to take it to the professionals. I'm not over the idea of paying money when it is something I should be able to fix myself.
This weekend is a big scrapbook weekend. I can't wait!!! I am in so need of some girl's time not to mention I have a ton of pictures to scrapbook. Darren was kind enough to use a vacation day so I can go for more of the weekend. He's the best!
And lastly, I changed the background/layout of the blog...what do you think? I found a site (www.jannypie.com) that gives you the code for backgrounds for free. Thanks Jan for the new look! :)

Laura has her own set of medical issues and she could use a few prayers for herself as well. :)
I heart them a whole lot and just want them to be happy AND healthy!!!!

We also painted some pictures today. I found some of the squeeze paintbrushes on clearance. Ella hasn't figured out that you can squeeze them to get more paint to come out so for now they are relatively mess free = YEAH!!
After painting, Ella took a bubble bath with the new Elmo bubbles. Not sure where the love for Elmo comes from since we never watch him on tv but Ella is quite fascinated with him so I was glad when I found the Elmo bubble bath. Ella got soap in her eyes one time and she hasn't forgotten about it. Fingers crossed that she doesn't get Elmo bubbles in her eyes!!!
And our last big project of the day was making dulce de leche bars. Darren had about one bite before declaring them too much caramel-y goodness for one family so we will be sharing the rest with my coworkers. The recipe is here: http://www.pillsbury.com/Recipes/ShowRecipe.aspx?rid=16401
I warn you...they are super rich!
And here is a little message from Ella: g g ggggg;332

Well, in case you can't...that, my friends is the start of a scarf. :) I know it isn't quite perfect but I am pleased with how it is turning out so far. Maybe one day I will even start (and possibly finish) a nice blanket for Ella. I asked her if she wanted one and she said yes.
And speaking of Ella, the other day I snapped this picture of her.
