We hate the stomach bug! Valentine’s box and catching up…

You probably wouldn’t even believe me if I told you that this sweet little thing had the stomach bug just a few hours after slithering on our kitchen floor, in a petty skirt, like a snake on Saturday afternoon, would you?  We headed to friends on Saturday afternoon to eat dinner and watch a movie.  After walking in the door putting Hudson down, our things down, and taking our coats off Landree threw up mere steps from the hardwoods right onto the carpet.  So we changed her clothes, cleaned the floor, packed up and headed home.  Poor girl made it a mile down the road before she got sick again.  It was awful!  Thankfully, she only got sick one more time and was able to sleep the rest of the afternoon.  I bleached every toy in the house before I got sick around ten on Saturday evening.  All I can say is yuck!  I hate getting sick!  Praise the Lord Hudson and Jeff didn’t get it.  We stayed home Sunday and have been pretty low key the last few weeks.  It’s just too cold to do anything outside.  I’m ready for spring! 


Hudson wanted his picture made too. 


And I know these pictures are pitiful, but I’m sharing them anyway.  Jeff took them, but I made him.  Poor Landree doesn’t get the concept of getting sick in the trashcan or toilet.  She was actually sleeping twice when she started getting sick.  So the last time she said her tummy hurt Jeff wanted her to come into the bathroom-poor baby laid her head down on the stool and feel asleep.  After a few minutes I picked her up and took her back to bed.  No more getting sick-yea!

Enough about that, we’re all much better and Landree was hopping around the house by Sunday morning!  Monday we got a fun box in the mail from Grandma, it was filled with lots of goodies wrapped in pink and red tissue for Landree and Hudson.  Grandma is so sweet to send us a fun box every few months filled with lots of special treats.  Landree was so excited to open it because she knows it’s going to be something fun for her.  And we weren’t disappointed.  She got a new magnetic ballet/dress up doll book, and a pez dispenser, and a ‘Texas  Princess’ shirt (never mind neither of our children were born in TX we are brain washing them!  It’s hard for me to even grasp they aren’t Texans!  Texans are the only ones that understand me now, I know) and a new fancy Nancy book and another sticker coloring book, and her FAVORITE, pink heart and flower marshmallows (they didn’t have her name on them, but she knew they were hers.  Grandma always gives the girl marshmallows.  And Hudson got a couple of really cute books and car and a cute cowboy (not Dallas, but spurs and hat) shirt.  Thanks so much for the fun box Grandma! 



And today we ran a few quick errands, I actually mailed my taxes (to the tax lady-they aren’t officially done).  This is definitely the first time I’ve ever had them done this early.  We have to keep up with all housing related expenses, bills, receipts, etc. because Jeff is a pastor.  We can write off our ‘housing allowance’ but it’s a lot to keep up with.  It’s really more like a beating to me!  I hate paper work and keeping up with it!  So I'm so glad it’s over!  I plan to stay on top of it this year!  Every year I’ve gotten a little better about keeping up with it. 

Landree and I made a batch of funfetti cookies today.  They are so yummy!  It’s just a box of Funfetti cake mix (or any really) with 2 eggs and 1/3 cup of oil.  They are the yummiest, fluffiest, easiest cookies ever to make!  I need to go eat a few more dozen before Jeff gets home so they won’t tempt him.

Hope you’re all well and having a great week!

I was not born in Texas either (AZ) nor did I live in Texas until I was 16...but everyone else in my family was, soooo, that makes me a Texan (besides, I got here as fast as I could. I had to wait for my Dad to retire from the Air Force). I have lived here ever since though. I have lived many places, but would not trade Texas for anywhere else.

So sorry to hear about your stomach bug. We had it a few weeks ago too. However, to my surprise, Kamree was the perfect puker! She always hit the toilet or bowl!

Love the baking pictures! My family has been baking up a storm here! There is nothing else to do when it is -25 degrees out! UGH!

Hope you have a great week!

Landree looks so grown up as she is making cookies. :) Love that smile.

Hey Jennifer,

Sorry it has been so long since I had a chance to come by and say hi. Hope Landree is feeling 100% better now, poor baby.

Both Landree and Hudson have grown so much since I checked in last time. Hope you are well and I will talk to you soon. BTW, are you on Facebook?

Oh poor little Landree..that is the worst sickness you can have! (in my opinion) Hope no one else gets sick and that Spring is on the way!!!

I hope she is feeling better by now! :(

I found those clothespins in the scrapbooking section at Hobby Lobby. :)
