Friday and playing catch-up

This last week has been such a whirlwind. It all started the day before Thanksgiving. My sister, her husband and their 4 boys arrived just before church. Then, just before 2 a.m.(*YAWN*) my brother, his wife and daughter and my parents arrived after driving 13 hours.

By the time Saturday hit, Jacob had 'partied' out....he was sick all day, but by Sunday morning he was feeling fine. Saturday was also Audrey's first birthday!!

Audrey wasn't feeling all that great and was totally unimpressed with the birthday 'hoopla'. In fact, she took only one bite of her birthday cake. She proceeded to be very cranky all day Saturday. On Sunday in the church nursery she got a fever. I thought maybe she just had a flu bug, but by Wednesday afternoon she wasn't better. Her fever had come and gone but the crankiness remained....oh, did it remain. I am not the kind of mom that runs to the doctor for every sniffle, but all my 'remedies' hadn't helped the poor baby. By the time we got in to see the doctor on Wednesday I was ready for drugs. If nothing was wrong with Audrey, then the drugs would be for me.....either way, one of us was leaving that office with a prescription - preferably for something STRONG :) Audrey has/had an ear infection, so an antibiotic was given....I asked for drugs for myself, but all they did was laugh?!?!? I was serious!

Audrey has improved some and isn't crying ALL.THE.TIME. anymore. Amazing what a little amoxicillin (however it is spelled...wouldn't you think that would make it into the spell check?? :)) and a good nights rest can do for a mom's sanity!

Christmas preparations are now going strong and with 3 semi-healthy kids I am ready to tackle the decorations....but first, laundry. :)
