Had a Wonderful Merry Christmas

Truly we did. Except for the curse of the stomach bug. :( Allie got sick Friday. No one got sick Saturday so I was hoping it was just something didn't agree with her. Sunday at mom and dad's I had a headache and that tight feeling you get in your stomach. Went home, took a bath and laid on the couch watching the original Cheaper By The Dozen and Belles On Their Toes(thanks mom!!!). One of the children informed me that Malachi was throwing up...clear across the bedroom carpet, the hallway and into the bathroom. Yuck! That sweet little boy has never thrown up before so he didn't really know what was going on. He said "mama my mouth is pooping" I had to laugh at that one :) Later on I got sick. Felt better yesterday morning but not like eating much which was good for the diet! So three of us down and four to go. Although I won't complain if it skips everyone else but I'm not holding my breath! This reminds me of a few years ago when I was picking the boys up from their dad's on Christmas. He didn't tell me they were sick(thanks!). I had two of them throw up in the car on the way home :( I'd really NOT like to make this a Christmas tradition!

Now to figure out what to do with all the toys. See we live in a two bedroom apartment. It's quite spacious but not spacious enough for a race car track, train track and complete farm set with all the accessories. The farm was put up in the kitchen, taking over my whole floor lol. The train track would probably fit on the dining room table but then where would we eat? ahh the dilemma. I think everyone was pleased with what they got. I know I sure was!! I got a digital camera. Now as soon as I get a battery charger I'll get some pics and post them so I can show off my gorgeous kiddos :)

Laundry is already started today. I need to give the bathroom a good bleaching and get some dishes done before the littlies get up.

Have a good one!

Baby It's Windy Outside

When I went to work this morning(2am) it was pouring down rain and about 37 degrees. A little after 8 it had dropped to 34 and started snowing! It's dropped to 29 now, stopped snowing, but the wind sure is blowing! Malachi saw the snow and got out his new snow boots :) He's been dying to wear them. I told him it was too windy to play outside but we did have a few errands to run so he got to wear them. My local senior center was having a $2 bag sale. I decided that since I had to get out anyway, we'd stop there. For $4 I got a long black wool winter coat, two dresses, 2 pairs of bibs and a pair of jeans :D It was mostly "old lady" polyester clothes lol. Then we filled up the gas tank, only $47 instead of the $50 I was planning. Hey I'll take savings anywhere I can! Stopped at the store, had to get coffee and flavored creamer, gotta have priorities you know :) Well I need to go. The fridge needs cleaned out, bathroom needs cleaned and I think it looks like a good day to bake cookies :)

Until next time
