Our Thanksgiving was...interesting. It started out really well but quickly made us increasingly more thankful for good health since most of our family got sick! Ugh!
Wednesday the 21st was Henry's second birthday! We celebrated with cupcakes at breakfast so we could get on the road early to visit Michael's family. Henry had no complaints! :)
Can you guess where Emma and I went?
Molly was in desperate need of a good cleaning (let's just say she was 'well loved' by Henry and Emma), and her hair was crazy from Emma's many attempts to 'make it pretty.' But she's lookin' good now!
Shortly after arriving at grandma and grandpa's, Henry got sick. As in, he threw up all over their house, sick. It was awful. We decided to just stay at my in-law's house since my sister-in-law is due with a baby anytime and the last thing I wanted to do was get her, or anyone in their house, sick. I didn't want Michael's parents getting sick either, but they were already exposed and couldn't escape the germs. So there we stayed.
A couple hours after Henry threw up, Emma started. By 2am Isa was throwing up too. I was up almost every 30 minutes with one of those three ALL night. From 3-4am it was actually every 15 minutes.
Needless to say, it put quite a damper on our Thanksgiving festivities. We popped in to see everyone on Thursday to say hi to the whole extended family and eat a few bites of turkey. Then we piled back in the car. Halfway home Emma had quite the sick stomach...all over the car. Nasty! Cleaning up throw up from the car is the WORST!
We got home and I was asleep by 8pm. But then Elliott started throwing up. I woke up Friday with a fever. Oy vey.
The rest of the weekend was ok and we got TONS of house projects accomplished. I made Michael a suit (I'll post more on that in the near future) and things were looking up. Until yesterday...
While playing around (of course, doing something she shouldn't) Isa almost cut half of her big toe off! She was using the furniture as a jungle gym and stuck her foot under a metal-legged table. Then we're not exactly sure if Henry jumped on top of the table, or if Isa put her own weight on it, but it crushed her toe and sliced most of the way through it.
Off to get stitches we went and for the next couple weeks she'll be hobbling around. Poor girl. At least the stomach flu is past.
In spite of it all, I'm thankful for my family and for our health. I'm thankful we got to see people, even if just for a short time. And I'm thankful that the past weekend is over. :)
Hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving!
