Where we have been

Sorry I have been gone so long!  The past few weeks have been busy and really not terribly exciting to blog about haha.  So here is a small recap!

Gray had a doctors appointment a few days after Halloween and he is a normal, perfect little boy!  He is 50% for weight and 75% for height.  The doctor actually commented that he is an amazingly healthy boy (foreshadowing).  He did have to get some shots but he was quickly calmed by a gold fish cracker.

Ashley, our friend Melissa and I went to a holiday market in Abingdon, VA a few Saturdays ago.  It was ok-I was hoping for more cute things but not so much.  The only thing I bought was lunch and the most delicious cookie ever made!  (which I will be trying to recreate very soon!) While we were at the market, we ran across a booth that sold gourmet olive oils and balsamic vinegar!  We loved it so much we went to their store in downtown Abingdon.  IT IS AMAZING!!!  The whole store is actually a tasting gallery! If anyone is in the area I highly recommend visiting the Abingdon Olive Oil Company.  I wanted to buy one of everything but what does a person need with that many olive oil/balsamic vinegars?  Ha They even had a dark chocolate balsamic vinegar.  Sooo yummy! It is definitely a great place to find gifts for a foodie or a special treat for yourself.

I recently auditioned for another show with the Jonesborough Repertory Theater called S'Wonderful.  It is based on the music of George and Ira Gershwin.  It is amazing!  The show opens in February and will run for 2 weeks.  My friend Logan auditioned as well but she did not make it :(

How adorable is this child?  
This is MacKenzie- one of my friend's granddaughter. 
She always wants me to teach her dance moves haha! 

*Back to the foreshadowing*

Saturday night Gray started running a terrible fever.  This was the first time he has ever had a fever over 100 degrees.  It was not fun.  He and I were up all night together.  Finally at 4am the fever broke and we both got a little sleep.  Sunday morning he woke up in not the best mood as you could imagine....


He also woke up with some sort of rash!  We called the nurse and she said if it did not go away to come in on Monday.  Well through out the day on Sunday Gray started feeling better but the rash was getting worse!  We kept calling him the polka dotted puppy haha!  

This was taken Sunday afternoon and 
you can kind of see his "spots"! 

Well the rash looked horrible this morning and so to the doctor we went.  It turns out that 2% of children have a reaction to their MMR vaccine...remember when we had to get some shots at his last appointment?  Yea- the MMR was one of them.  So now we have a baby with some extra decorations haha!  

 This whole month reminds me to be thankful but it also reminds me that I am not thankful enough ALL year.  I am going to try to do better.  I read a post written by my dear friend Faith today that jolted me into reality.  Go here and read it.         

I hope you all have a great week!

Poor little guy!

That store sounds amazing! I'm definitely making a note to visit if I'm ever in the area.
