Race Car Party

Evan had a great Race Car party!!!

There were lots of friends and family there and everyone had a great time.

Evan and his friends got to run and tumble at the YMCA. They had an obstacle course set up, trampoline's to jump from and a swing to have fun with.

Evan got lots of exciting big boy toys. He especially loved his rain boots his NeeNee gave him. He liked them so much that he wore them to church the next day, even though there was no rain.

We want to thank everyone who came and who made this a very special 3rd birthday for our very big boy, Evan Burke.

Evan's 3rd Birthday

Evan turned 3 today.

It is hard to believe how fast time has gone by. He is growing up so fast and is super excited about his "Race Car"party tomorrow.

We got him the movie Cars on DVD. He watched it 3 times today. That will be the theme for his party tomorrow. Him and his friends will be at the YMCA where they will play some fun games and celebrate together.

One of his friends, Mary Wright, cannot be there tomorrow. So she brought Evan's present to school today. When I picked Evan up he saw the gift on the front seat. He said, "Can I open Mary Wright's present when we get home Daddy, can I?" I replied, "Sure, Evan." He said "It's a deal!"

Another one of Evan's friends, Will Duncan, saw Evan at church last week. He came running up to Evan and said, "Hey, Hey, Hey Evan. I comin to yo birthday party in 10 seconds! (which in 3 yr old land means ten days)"

We are looking forward to our big Race Car celebration tomorrow with family and friends. Hopefully we can soak in this next yr because 4 will be here in a flash.

Well, the sick parade continues at the Burke household.

Today, we found out that Evan has the flu. He came home from school yesterday and was not his normal wild & crazy self. He just kinda mopped around the house. So Lindsay took his temp and it was 103.

This morning we took him in and got the positive flu test, so now him and Addi will be on Tamiflu for the next few days.

We have had over the past few weeks:

Ear Infection
Ear Tubes
Adenoids removed
Sinus Infection
Cellitus of the Ear
And now the Flu

By now I think our friends from Walgreens look at the calendar and say, "Well the Burke's will probably be here today."

Well, maybe it we caught the flu early and hopefully soon we can string together a week of wellness.

Addison Update

Well it has been a few days since Addison's surgery to remove her adenoids and have tubes put in.

The first couple of days she was terribly fussy but was able to sleep all night. Yesterday, however, she turned a corner and has been really happy. She has been very playful and energetic. She has made a 180 degree turn. Addi is even making some sounds that she had not made before. She doesn't fuss when we use her earplugs during bath. Overall she seems very happy and content now.

Thanks again for all those who called, txted, facebooked, etc. We do appreciate the support and prayers from each of you.

An Evan Funny

Evan runs into the living room towards the couch where Lindsay is sitting. In mid-run Evan lets out three big toots.

Lindsay and I start laughing really hard. So Lindsay asks, "Evan did you toot?" He replies, "No." So Lindsay asks again, "Evan are you sure you didn't toot?" Evan says, "No". Lindsay then asks, "Well if you didn't toot, what was that?" Evan replies, "It was sounds!"

Addison's Surgery

Addison had her surgery today to remove her adenoids and to receive ear tubes.

We left our house @ 4:30 a.m. and arrived in Greenwood a little after 5:30 a.m. We checked in and soon were taken back to an out-patient room.

Addi was playful to not to have had a bottle all morning. She was taken back a little after 7:30 a.m.

They called and told us everything went well and that the adenoids were removed and "soupy". Addison returned to the room a little after 8 a.m. and cried for a complete hour.

We made it back home around 11 a.m. Our little one is tired, cranky, and recovering fine. Thanks to all of you who have checked in and prayed for us. We truly appreciate your support.
