Ella has no tonsils.  How in the world does she get Strep throat?  Seriously?!

Honestly, as soon as I saw her at school that red checks were a dead giveaway.  She always gets red cheeks with strep.  When her test came back positive I went into panic mode.  Lucy can NOT get strep and she has had the same nagging cough as Ella since Sunday.  As soon as I got Ella home I immediately put Lucy in the car (kicking and screaming I might add) and took her to get swabbed, too.  Thankfully she tested negative, but I am going to be keeping a very close eye on her.  We go to St. Jude tomorrow for a post-operative checkup and I may have them re-run the test for good measure.

Ella feels crummy but has been quite a trooper.  She enjoyed some much deserved couch time and Momma lovin' today.

On a more cheerful note, today was red day in Kindergarten.  Red is my absolute favorite color, so I was quite happy to dress Lucy this morning.  Doesn't she look adorable?

And how funny is this?  Jack has discovered the computer and he loves to watch Thomas the Train.

Oh, and in between taking kids to the doctor today I managed to try a new Pinterest recipe for dinner.  I am determined to increase our dinner repertoire.  This one might not be for everyone, but we really enjoyed it.  Brown Sugar Kielbasa with Apples and Onions.  My picture isn't as pretty, but it was really yummy none the less!

Good night!
