Hello my beautiful friends! How are you all doing?? I have missed you all dearly while being away from the computer. I honestly have not opened it up in a week. Our wonderful friends came for a special visit for a week together. I pray that they had a great time here. It was an eventful one for them that is for sure!

Well we went on vacation together for three nights and while we were there, my three beautiful children all got violently sick with the stomach flu (both ends) for those three days. My oldest Tess said to me at dinner at a steak house resturant the first night, I think I am going to be sick and then vomited all over dinner. (SHE would kill me if she knew I was writing this!) And then down went the other two kids within hours. I feel so horrible for the house keepers at the hotel, I apologized every time we had to ask for new sheets. Yes, it was that bad.

I think I have recovered now. Brad and I haven’t gotten it. So cross fingers. Oh what a horrible trip. When we got home, I fell into bed and slept for 10 hours. I was soo tired.

I hope to be back in full swing again next week. I am still catching up on all the laundry, etc. The kids are doing better. It has taken awhile for them to get back on their feet too. Thank you for your understanding. I hope you all are well.

    Happy to hear your kids are on the mend. Sounds like you’re ready for a vacation from your vacation. Also sounds like a big family Christmas we had 20 years ago. It just kept taking victims. No fun at all! Hope you get a bit of down time to relax after all the chaos.

    Thanks goodness you’re ok! I’ve been worried about you. No posts had me thinking the worst! I tried to email you to check in but clicking on that link led me to an outsourced email and I never followed through. Welcome Home! Love the card!
