Welcome 2013!!

Happy New Year everyone! It is good to actually be back and writing here on my blog. The last 2 months have been like a tornado for us. The holidays are a busy time for everyone, but this year it was BEYOND ridiculous! All I can say is that I am so glad it is over! And one of my goals for this year is to focus more on the things that I enjoy, like sewing and blogging. So, we shall see if I actually follow through and continue to post….lol! 

I will give you a short synopsis of the last 2 weeks of Christmas and New Years…..

Christmas Eve morning…at the doctor. Both kids were sick but Christopher was worse with a fever, sore throat,coughing. IMAG1260
The doctor said it was viral and it would work its way out of his system. But that should give you some idea of how Christmas went….lol! 

We went to my sister’s Christmas Eve for dinner and presents. The kids were all excited to be with their cousins. They played and ran around and a good time was had by all.

But by 10:30pm I knew Christopher was going down hill. He looked like crap. So, we left and he fell asleep on the car ride home.

Christmas morning the kids ran downstairs to see if Santa had come. And of course he did……

They got everything they asked for and more!! So much so that I don’t even know where to start with putting all of this stuff away…lol! Christopher was dying for and Xbox 360 and he was so excited when he opened it!

After opening presents and playing, I could tell that Christopher was still not getting any better. In fact, he looked worse. We were supposed to go to Chris’s aunts house to spend Christmas with his side. But with the way that Christopher feeling, I thought it would be best if I stayed home with him. So, that is what we did. Him and I stayed in our pj’s all day and just relaxed. Chris and Anthony got dressed and headed out to see his family. Needless to say, there are no photo’s of the rest of the day…lol!! 

Ok, now the rest of the week we were all looking like this….

Christopher got a little better, but we all got worse!! All four of us were sick the entire week. It was horrible. I can’t ever remember a time when we all got sick together. All week we laid around, hoping to feel better. 

That brought us to NYE. We had plans to go out with friends, but that quickly got canceled. At this point, Anthony was the worst and I did not want to take him out. I told Chris he could go with Christopher, but he didn’t want to leave us so we all stayed home.  We put our pj’s on early and watched tv. 

Anthony passed out around 10:30 but we kept him downstairs with us….

Christopher was struggling to stay awake, but he made it…..

That brings us to today. Christopher went back to school and Chris went back to work. But Anthony is still not well. We have an appointment to go back to the doctor and hopefully get some meds for him. 

I hope that this is not an indication for what this winter has in store for us! 

That pretty much sums it up! I hope you had a great holiday season with your friends and family. I will be by to catch up with all my bloggy buddies this week. 

Have a great day…
