It's not really Christmas unless someone is sick, huh?
(Thankfully we made it through the Big Event all in good health.)
Baby started his decline yesterday afternoon. By the time I got home from work, my mom was cradling him in her arms in the rocking chair. NOT a good sign. He was in our bed last night from 2:00-3:00, just burning up. So today, Hubby will whisk him to the Dr. as a precaution (since we have a house full of company and the weekend is coming up). Now we're taking bets as to which unlucky family member will catch it next. Fun times.
Anyway, Christmas was celebrated with gusto in the Trenches. Some snippets:
--At church on Christmas Eve there was a puppet show. And we all know how much Baby enjoys" these types of things. Yep, he freaked out in church and kept insisting (loudly), "Puppets go sleep now", much to the amusement of the entire congregation.
--Eldest's favorite gifts were his authentic Arizona Diamondbacks baseball hat (shipped from great-grandma who winters in Mesa), his skateboard...and his new math workbooks.
--Middle has been enjoying his Thomas the Train flannel pj's (on his body now for 3 straight days and counting..) Hey, it's vacation!
--And Baby thoroughly enjoyed all the peanut butter cups, Skittles and bubble gum that were in his stocking. At 7am Christmas morning.
--By far, the best gift the boyz got was this.
Aside from the fact that they're constantly bickering over whose turn it is It's teaching them how to play nice and take turns, and all 4 little boys (including my nephew) have been fighting over it using it nonstop!
--Hubby got the Red Sox jacket he'd been pining for. I think it's
kinda cheesy, but hey, he's happy.
--I got Uggs. Hubby's opinion is that "they look like high top slippers". Ahh, so comfy. But why can't I seem to lift my feet in them? These boots were made for schluffing around in, that's for sure.
And I'll leave you with this: A sure sign that you may have gained a leeeetle too much over the holidays?
When even your underwear is tight.
Not that I would know. *ahem*
