what a week!

Here is a recap of the week following Thanksgiving ! It's been NUTS.

1.) I braved the Black Friday crowds and made it home in one piece!
2.) I was a back up sitter Monday and Tuesday and had 7 kids here!
3.) On day two of extra kids, a closet door fell on my first born child and she was rushed to the doctors office for what I thought for sure would be stitches.
4.) Thank goodness for Wendy being so flexible and both Wendy and Mamaw for staying with the kids so I could take said child to the dr.!
5.)Thank the good LORD above, she only had to get "dermabond" on her ouchie and it is healing nicely
6.) my first born child is a lot braver than me I bawled like a baby...for two days off and on.
7.) okay it may have been two and half days straight.
8.) Thursday our 2nd born child woke at 2 a.m. with the flu
9.) Our already wounded but very brave first born child started throwing up at 11:00 a.m. and continued to get sick until about 9:00 p.m.
10.) The kittens both loved on the kids when they were sick. They rarely left Rylee's side.
11.) I cried some more because I felt bad for them. Especially Rylee who had been through so much already this week!
12.) The kids bounced back Friday afternoon but their appetite is still not up to par.
13.) Today (Saturday) the SNOW made them so happy! We went sledding at the Country Club for a whole 7 minutes before we decided maybe we should just go home and play in the backyard.
14.) we played in the snow and let the kittens out in it to see what they would do. They weren't fond of it. at all.
15.) Rylee spent 2 hours at the kitchen table tonight recreating the illustrations out of a book she likes to read. It was very detailed and she did such a good job!
16.) Beckett didn't run away from MALL SANTA today! He ran up to him and said "I want a Batman and an Iron Man" Rylee said she wanted a Dora Dollhouse. . . Guess I'm taking back the roller skates she said she wanted last week...
17.)I'm pretty sure the stray cat that we love is knocked up. this is a problem because a.) we have 2 cats already and b.) its the winter so every time she comes up to the door I am trying new ways to trick her into the garage so I know she is warm. It helps me sleep better at night. It worked for 3 straight nights.
18.) Bogey is in love with Dewey so I think I need to call the vet and get our cats fixed...
19.) Cassie moved back to STL and I miss her already.
20.) I have 90% of my Christmas shopping done!
