Oh, Santa was so very good to us! The boys received beautiful gifts. A costume trunk and Twig blocks, art supplies and an easel were a few highlights. We spent a wonderful day with my family and today we are resting and packing, preparing to be with Blair's family for the next few days. My favorite gift? A new camera... a REALLY nice camera. I don't really remember when I have ever been so excited about a gift I have received ( except for diamonds. of course :). The PERFECT gift. Thank you everyone!

As it turned out, Skye was just starting a little cold... thank goodness. Bryce and I have had the sniffles too. My boys have had enough illnesses this season! I try hard to feed them well. They love fruits and veggies! We are clean"ish"... :) , I try to make sure they get enough rest, they take really good vitamins- so I somehow feel like I have failed them when they are sick... like I could/should do more. This week I added probiotics to their diets. I do understand that it is unrealistic to expect that they never get sick, I know it is just part of being a kid and being around other kids- Mommy guilt....blerg!
We had a really fun, busy week! We had a music class party which the boys really enjoyed.
Miss Terri gave them beautiful bell instruments. Bryce had his school party and Blair and I attended two school parties with his colleagues. Today we had dinner at my Aunt and Uncle's house- they hosted a "take a break" party with hot dogs and chili. It was a fun relaxing time. This week will also be busy, dear friends are coming from Georgia for a couple of days! I am VERY excited to spend time with my friend and her family!

This morning I realized that my little man, who was sleeping on my belly- of course- was really warm. He is running a low fever- just about 100 degrees, again! The poor little guy. He and big brother had "probable Swine 09'" just after Halloween and then he had RSV right after Thanksgiving. We had a Christmas party yesterday.... maybe he should avoid holidays. I hope that this is just a little bug passing through and nothing more. It is not fun when your kids are sick.
