Snow and ice

Well, school has been out since Tuesday and it doesn't look like they'll have it tomorrow either. We got a small amount of snow on Monday night and by Tuesday morning it was ice/freezing rain on top of the snow. So unfortunately there was no playing in the snow. Yesterday morning we lost power and phone service. The power was out about 14 hours and the phone is still out but thankfully we do have DSL.

Sickness Update

Well, I am feeling much better. I commented to my sister-in-law last week that I haven't had to deal with the throw-up with either girl but tonight that changed. Sophia apparently threw up on the way home from Olivia's gymnastics but didn't say anything. She was more upset that she got it all over her shirt than the actual act. Once we got in the house, I showed both girls what to do should they feel the need to throw up and my girl can do that like a champ. She did it twice in the commode. Hopefully that is all she has. It has been several hours now and no repeat but I don't want to get ahead of myself. I think this might be a long night......

Well, the stomach bug hit our house over the weekend and thankfully it was just me that was on the receiving end. David is feeling it a little on one end but went to work any way. What a trooper! We went out to dinner Saturday night and bam! it hit me. I spent most of Saturday night in the bathroom. Yesterday I felt a ton better but not enough to brave eating. I was so thristy Saturday night/Sunday morning but was scared to drink anything for fear that it would be coming back up soon. I am so praying that the girls do not get it. My brother's family all got it but I am hoping it started and stopped with me!

So excited!!!

I am so excited I can't stand it! My darling husband has agreed to let me go to Texas to a photo workshop by The Pixel Fairy Princess where I will also FINALLY get to meet my bestest DTC/Bloggy friend Marla! It is going to be the best since I get to meet someone in real life that I have been "talking to" for over 5 years and I will get to learn more about my camera all in the same weekend!
