Hello there! It's Two Thousand Twelve?! Really...where in the world did the time go? It seems like only yesterday I was posting about our Elves Simon Peter & Noel bringing snow to little Emily since she'd been asking for it since her birthday. But, the date on that post was December 8. It's been OVER a month since I have posted here. I have become neglectful of this blog and for that I apologize! It just seems as though the older my kids get the more involved they become in extra curricular activities and the more I become a chauffeur.
We had a very blessed Christmas. Santa Clause was very good to our children. They all three got the gift they asked him for.
|Emily got a Leap Pad (although she really wanted an Ipad?!?!)|
|Shelby got an Ipod with a stylish case.|
|Tyler got an XBox 360 with Kinect!|
Since Christmas, my mom was in the hospital, Emily has been to the doctor to be X-Rayed because we thought she had broken her arm, and we've all had some sort of illness at one point or another. It's been a rough few weeks, but we've managed. Mom is at home now and doing much better. Emily's arm was not broken, only bruised very badly and majorly sore. The stomach bug is still lingering around here. This morning as I was blow drying Shelby's hair for school, Emily came into the bathroom. She leaned over the toilet for a while and then I caught her stretched out on the floor. The poor thing had been vomiting since 3 AM. She told me that she was just very tired. So, I picked her up and brought her back to her resting place in the recliner with her sprite and puke bucket. Please say a prayer for her that she is on the fast track to healing. Watching your three year old dry heave is tough, knowing there is not much you can do for her.
I hope that you had a blessed Christmas and your new year has started off right. If you've resolved to change something in your life, my prayer is that you are able to do so with God's help. My goal is very similar to most of you who are reading this I am sure. I have resolved to lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle, eating out less and making healthier food choices when I do eat out.
