My Last 2 1/2 Weeks!!!

Ok, just a little update in our house the last 2 weeks. Todd came home sick with a head cold and coughing and the whole nine yards so he was sick for 3 days and I thought wow for the first time in my life I didn't get it, the next morning I woke up unable to breathe and sounding like a duck, and I had it for 4 days. So a couple of days goes by and I wash all the sheets and Lysol EVERYTHING! In the mean time I have to go have more blood tests done (which I hate), start a new job and two days later Todd said he wasn't feeling very well and was a little pale and then the next thing you knew he was throwing up. So I got him home and ran to Wal-Mart to get 7Up, saltines, soup, and Popsicles...the necessities. He threw up that night and the next day. SO after all of that was done and he could keep food down I washed all the sheets and another bottle of Lysol - gone. And now I'm just waiting for it to hit me ( knock on wood) So we had some firsts the last 2 weeks; it was the first time Todd has taken an actual "sick" bath since we've been married, it was the first time anyone has ever thrown up, and the first time we have ever slept in separate beds under the same roof! What a couple of weeks, my next post will be more cheerful, I promise :)

Merry Christmas!!!

Merry Christmas to all! We had a great holiday season and spent time with family and friends. As you can see Santa was very kind to everyone and I'm pretty sure I gained about 10 pounds. Mom, Bri, and I went out to build a snowman and it was pretty funny. Mom forgot she had rollers in her hair and then her and Brianne made snow angels which maybe the funniest thing ever. Bri has those pictures so Ill try and get them. We hung out and opened exchange gifts Christmas Eve and then had a huge breakfast in the morning and did Santa. Todd got the new XBox 360 and some games and the Guitar Hero Tour. I will have to take some video of that, it is pretty funny. Eric came for New Years and we played forever and Buddy was so taken back by his singing that he covered his head in the couch, it was cute. Santa brought me my iPod 80GB which is awesome. I downloaded all my Cd's and some other peoples and I have 40 days of straight music and have only used 8GB so Ill have to add more! Everyone else made a haul too and Dad got a Wii so we have been playing tennis, bowling, boxing, and some others. The next day everyone had Wii arm :) And as you can see Buddy got a Christmas sweater and didn't put up a fight at all! All in all it was a great Christmas and were sad to see it end. New Years was just hanging out and playing games but we still had fun. We hope everyone else had a great Christmas and since this is my first post in awhile congrats to Janae on the new bundle of joy, she is adorable...cant wait to see you next month!!!
Oh and yes I took pictures of my cookies and
appetizers (in case no one believed me) I made Snicker doodles and sugar cookies and I made the green bean casserole and my appetizer was a Ritz like cracker with whipped cream cheese, grilled summer sausage, fire roasted tomatoes, and mozzarella cheese on top. Not bad huh? :)
