Thankful Thursday

I have been home with my son all week since he has not been feeling well. Turns out has strep throat. Poor thing. He complained that his stomach hurt a few times, and I didn't realize that that is one of the symptoms! I'm so thankful that I am able to stay home with my kids when they are not well. I work at their school, and they are so understanding. That is such a huge blessing! I'm also thankful for health benefits because I know it would cost an arm and a leg if we didn't have any.

And yes, I'm a weirdo. I take pictures at the doctor's office!

Since I've been home with him, I had some time to do some baking (which I love to do). I figured I would bless the rest of my family by making them muffins, so in the morning they have something to eat on the way to school/work.  We're always rushing out the door! I'm so thankful for the family that I have!!

 I made blueberry & cinnamon muffins!

Aw, I hope he feel much better. I didn't realize that about a stomach ache either!

Yum-o muffins :)

My daughter just finished a round of antibiotics to cure her strep throat! Nasty stuff!

I hope he's on the mend soon! Thanks for the heads up about the stomach part...Noah is down with a fever, sore throat, and the occasional stomach complaint too! I didn't know the stomach thing went hand in hand with strep...

We now have Recipe Swap Meet Thursday. It's new just started it today. I put up a recipe & you swap me for one of yours. Not to many people know about it yet, so we only had a few people, but some great recipes. Those muffins/cupcakes look scrumptious - WHOSE GOT THE COLD MILK! Nummers!

Amanda said...

Yay mom!! You really ARE a blessing! And I hope your son feels better soon... strep is so tough!

I hope everyone is feeling better now! We have been fighting off colds for the past 3 weeks! Those cinnamon muffins look so yummy....are they homemade or from a mix?
