It's that time of year again...flu season!

Thanks for everyone's patience in my lack of posting lately. As many of you can appreciate how busy this time of year is and then on top of it all we had some nasty virus go through our household...and of course I got the worse case of all. The kids both got ear infections several days apart and bounced back pretty quickly after getting some antibiotics in them. Me on the other hand got what I was positive was a full blown case of the flu. I woke up one morning and got every single flu symptom as the day wore on. I went to the Dr. that afternoon, but since I wasn't running a fever he determined that it was a virus instead. So off to CVS yet again to get my antibiotic. Needless to say, I'm still coughing and sniffling here 5 days later!

The day after Thanksgiving, we got very brave and let Abbey have a sleepover. We invited all the little girls from church. We had a total of 5 girls (including Abbey) + Brady + one of the boys from church came over just for the evening. We had a really fun time and the kids got along really well. They made some holiday crafts, played flash light tag, watched a movie and then "camped out" upstairs in their sleeping bags.

The picture above is the kids playing flashlight tag. They are pretty inventive with games. They turned out all the lights in the room (the spots you see on the wall are from the flashlights) and then tried not to get tagged with someone else's flashlight beam. This picture was taken in the dark, but because of the flash you can't tell that the room is pitch black.

I have to say, foam crafts are great! They already have adhesive on the backs and all the pieces are already cut out. And since I had bought these last year after christmas, I got a great deal on them...glad I remembered I still had them!

It looks as though you might possibly be the "A" Mom. I heard that the kids all enjoyed it very much. I'm so glad you are recovering. I think maybe I did forget to tell you, Kids always bounce back a lot quicker than adults from thoes nasty old bugs. I'm glad your back to blogging, I missed you.

Mother always buys those foam crafts for her kids at school. I use to come in one day before Christmas and do "art" with them since she's not crafty.

Looks like they had fun, glad you are feeling better.

I am very sad that Joshua did not get invited to this A-list slumber party, but since he was only 1 and half weeks old, I will let it go this time! ;)
