The Sick House

So we had a house full of sicks this weekend. From Jacob to Me. Lance and Landon were the only ones to luck-out on all the festivities, of nose blowing and fever fighting!!! It all started when Mathew came home from school on Friday, good'ole public school!!! His teacher told him it could be allergies, so that is what he informed me after school "it's just my allergies ma". Well NO, it isn't I said to Lance, of course I know better. And come Saturday morning Jacob had a runny nose, then comes sun and I'm feeling under the weather. And last night as I'm getting everyone bathed and into bed. Annabelle starts getting cranky( yes, i know you are all thinking but that's normal). Here is the last conversation before she passed out.

Annabelle: MOM.

Me: What Annabelle?

Annabelle: The boys are bothering me and I have hard school work in the morning. We are doing real 2nd grade work tomorrow.

Me: OK Ann I'm coming.

And so comes Monday morning, and Annabelle is sneezing away. So I think early to bed tonight for everyone.

The Latest

So Annabelle and Mathew started Flag Football this week, but I keep forgetting to take the camera..... so in the mean time.

Landon turned 3 months old yesterday (if you count the days). Which mean he just recently got shots. I swear he is the only 1 out of the 4 that cried bloody murder. This is after his first dose of Tylenol ever. I really hate giving my kiddos medicine, but he was just so miserable.

Jacob has been great with Annabelle and Mathew also starting school this week (yes, I forgot to take pictures, call the bad parent squad)! He was sad the first day, but ever since he realized how fun it is to be the only "big" kid at home, he has done wonderful!!!!

And he is a great helper with Landon too!

Great for rainy days too!!

Plus it gets out alot of energy.

The staff is very polite and friendly.
