It's been a while ...

Christmas kinda of killed me.

I wish I were kidding.

Right after the excitment was over Annabel got her annual vomity illness, followed by Jed and then - the day I had to work a night shift for the holiday - I came down with the cruddy sickness.

So it's not that I've been ignoring the internets so much as I've really been hiding under a rock.

The good news is we're all on the mend, and we're slowly getting back to normal.

I can tell because today when I brought Annabel to Lori's house for the first time in little more than a week, it took her six minutes to push me out the door.

Twenty minutes later, though, I'm told she was either feeling remorseful or just garden-variety drama.

"I want my mommy. I have water in my eyes."

Awww. That's enough to make ya go back.

Sorry to hear you guys were sick. Hope everyone is feeling back to normal soon!

Being sick sucks... espcially as you start a new year. Yuck! Get well soon.

I saw your comment on GGC about child proofing. We refrained from doing that too. Just seemed dumb when we were always watching him anyway... might as well teach him what not to touch, then just let him do whatever. Plus I hate all those doohickies that just get in the way when I am in a hurry.

My sixth sense told me something was afoul… YES the holidays, where the little germs travel from home to home with each gathering and jump like ticks on a dog with each mistletoe kiss. Glad to hear your family is recovering and from the pictures I seen over at flicker it looks as if all enjoyed your present sharing party.

My favorite is of Ittybits puppet show stage and she looks overwhelmed with joy about receiving it. What a GREAT present, one that she and her friends will appreciate even more as they grow older. Plus being built with the loving hands of her daddy would make it even more special and her first performance to be video taped for a keepsake.
