My aunt came bearing Christmas Gifts for the kids. Then she handed me this Bible. She said, she had it put up for me and thought I would like to share it with my children. She had gotten it for me in 1985, I do remember her reading it to me and I remember when I could not sleep at night she would rock me in a squeaking rocking chair. I think this gift touched me more now then it did back then. She is my second mom, I was lucky to have great people in my life growing up.

Strep took over our Christmas. I noticed my son running a fever and I gave him meds. Fever not high went up and down. Next, fever hit me and I had chills and I thought it must be the flu, but my throat felt like it had razor blades in it. I asked my son if his throat hurt and he said no. Then I noticed him spitting in the bathroom. We went to sleep and the next morning my husband and mom kept the little one and I carried the oldest to the ER.
Christmas Eve Morning in the ER with my son and the test was positive for Strep. My son was sluggish, moody, and not eating much. The doctor said his throat was a little red and give him antibiotics. By this time my voice was muffled and barely able to talk, terrible headache, and sore neck.
We made it home and my son was going like it wasn't bothering him, but it knock me flat on my butt. Sleeping the day away and cancelled all plans. Told all visitors they should make other plans too.

I looked up the recipe for Salt Dough Ornaments Craft at All Recipes. I thought, sounds cool so I texted my best friend an ask if she would like to bring her son over to work on ornaments. Yesterday, we followed the instructions for mixing the dough and seen a comment to prevent puffing to drop the temperature to 200 degrees, it took a while longer to cook the ornaments and waiting is the hardest part:)

I been so busy... first my son is back to normal, and thank you for all well wishes. I was really worried, he hadn't eaten in 4 days and if he did it would not stay down anyhow. I took him to the ER and they gave him meds for nausea. He wasn't dehydrated yet but on the verge. I keep pushing ginger ale, sprite, and soup at him. He just wanted me to hold him, poor little fellow. He slept the whole next day and then got up wanting to eat everything.
So far the rest of us haven't had signs of sickness. Thank goodness!
I have learned I'm sick of carpet in the house. All messes are attracted to it, no what I mean? This past week and just this morning my meanness 18 month old had to make his mark by taking his diaper off. A great way to start the morning off. Momma told me there would been days like this:)

Also, an update on the kitchen, it is purchased and tucked away for Christmas too. I went with a cheap model, in case they don't care for it, but I think they will. Especially my little chef. Just had to share the deal on the motorcycle with everyone, in case this fits your budget.
Disclosure: Just sharing and nothing was received.
