The funky and the fun

There's been this funky rash going around our family for a couple of weeks now...

We have finally found out what it is!

POISON IVY, of all things!!!!!

And guess who had the absolute worst case of it?

The boy who didn't even spend his weekend camping in the woods! Isn't that strange?!
Bless his heart. He missed Pow Wow for his TBQ quiz and then got a case of Poison Ivy worse than all the guys in our family who camped!
This was our first experience with it and it's beastly! But, he's on the mend now. -And come to find out most of the men who went, got it too.

This weekend ...we have the pleasure of celebrating the birth of Andrew!

His name in this family brings to mind:

A sweet spirit
A fun sense of humor
A sold out heart for Jesus
A bright mind
Cute freckles

and peanut butter and jelly!!! (because mega-picky eaters have to eat something!)
He is the kiddo who once asked me if he could skip dinner because he did so well at school that day!!! ; )

I loved my hubby's idea of making him a birthday cake shaped like a Pb&j sandwich, but he's not a big cake fan. He ended up choosing brownies and ice-cream instead.
I found this recipe and now these are just going to have to be apart of our celebration!
Because "Roo" and peanut butter and jelly, they are synonymous! ; )

Have yourself a happy, itch-free weekend. We plan to! LOL!

Oh my goodness, poison ivy! Yuck! I hope y'all feel better very very soon. That is miserable.

And happy birthday to Andrew. We have an Andrew in our family as well. Good name :)

Have fun, and feel better!

I am so sorry to hear about the Poison Ivy. It is misreable. Have a great time celebrating with the brownies and ice cream that sounds better than cake.
