First of all…..
My parents came up on Wednesday, my Mother got sick on Thursday, my daughter got sick on Friday, myself, Matt, and my Father got sick on Saturday evening.
By Sunday my parents started their drive back to South Carolina- trying to avoid the storm, a VERY VERY ill Matt, Sunny, and I went to the doctor were we thought Sunny might need to go to the ER for an IV, and the rest of yesterday was spent in and out of the bathroom and bed.
Its worth pointing out that in between all the sickness we had an outstanding Christmas. Santa came to our house! He left Sunny a beautiful handwritten letter and delivered her her very first car…which she refused to get out of and made my Father drive her and her “girlfriends” around all Christmas morning.
We left Santa a red velvet cake. Who knew he was such a big fan? We knew Santa must be southern at heart 🙂
My poor Sunshine girl- she loves the Holidays soooo much! She did her best to make the best of it all, and even though she hasn’t had one single piece of food in 4 DAYS she’s still full of smiles.
Our holiday was full of awesome memories and true gratefulness for our togetherness. One day we’ll look back on the stomach flu we passed from person to person and laugh…we just won’t be laughing anytime soon.
Today we are supposed to be heading to Ohio to visit family, and we’re snowed in and still a bit under the weather-no pun intended. Hopefully we’ll get out soon and continue in the holiday spirit. I’m hoping your holiday was splendid and healthy, we wish you a very Merry Christmas!
PS. I’ll be back later with a “gifts” post. We were very good this year apparently- because between my parents and my brother & brother-in-law we got some fantastic gifts!
