Get Better, Baby

Well yesterday was a toughie for my oldest. She had a headache when she woke up and was moving slower than usual. But she went to school. Around 11 am I got a call from the her saying she threw up but didn't know if she should come home or not. Well DUH!!! Of course I'm gonna go get her! The poor thing spent the rest of the day and evening in bed. She took lots of naps because, as she said, when she slept she wouldn't throw up. I think she slept from 1-5 pm.

On the bright side, I got a great workout going up and down the stairs - whew! And, she was finally able to get down 1/2 C of chicken noodle soup, 4 saltines, 1/2 banana, & some apple juice. YEAH! This morning she was feeling much better and wanated to go to school. Not sure if I'll let her go to gymnastics tonight. Illness doesn't get the same treatment when you're a competitive gymnast. It kinda gets put on the back burner. If your arm is broken you can still work legs, if your leg is hurt, you can still work upper body.

Anywho, I did throw together a quick Get Well card for her yesterday so I thought I'd share it with you. I stuck to soft understated colors that wouldn't overstimulate her senses. Normally she like bright neon colors.

Stamps: Doodle This (or maybe it's Doodle That - can't remember) by Stampin Up
Ink: Black Stazon (love the almond smell), Copics markers
Paper: Kraft & Aqua Mist by Papertrey Ink, dsp (Ginger?) by Stampin Up
Accessories: Vinyl Thickers

Happy New Year!

WOW! Can you believe it's 2009 already? I just can't believe it myself. This past holiday season has been crazy and wonderful and just crazy wonderful!

Thanksgiving was a full house at my MIL's. Christmas Eve was different this year. We went to church as usual, but we also opened all our presents. Normally I let the girls open just 1 present with is, as always, new jammies ***SURPRISE***! LOL!!! It's a tradition that started when I was a little girl and ensures, in spite of any bed head, they look nice for Christmas morning presents.

The reason for opening on Christmas eve is so we wouldn't be so rushed to go to the airport. That's right - this Texas girl was Boston bound! My nephew, Michael, got married on New Years' Eve in Boston! We flew up early to ski at Wachusett Mountain. FUN FUN FUN!!!!!

This was really Sarah's first time in snow. We don't count the last time we went skiing when she was 6 months old. Like she remembers that! SHEESH!

And where else would a couple Texans in Mass go to eat? The Longhorn Steakhouse was next door to our hotel in Marlboro and the food was quite delicious!

For those of you who remember my nephew, Nick, he can be seen in 1 or 2 of the following photos:
