Whew. I am glad that is over with.

We have been through it. I mean THROUGH. IT. We went almost a full month with someone, everyone being sick. Fever, throwing up, coughing, body aches, sore throats, head aches, etc. It was horrible. Everyone except Kent got sick in one form or another. I had my first sinus infection in the mix. It was horrible. It got to the point where I had started running a fever and my whole entire body hurt. Like if one of the kids touched me, it hurt. It was horrible. I even called Kent and told him to come home from work and then he took the next day off as well. But finally, finally we all mended up (thus far) and just in time for the snow. We had a snow storm come through on the 12th and it left us with about 7 inches of the white stuff. The kids had a good time in it. Nathan didn't care all that much for it, but he dealt with it as long as he could. My parents had planned a trip to visit at the same time as the snow storm and they braved it and drove all the way in the snow. And they said it was scary. At times they didn't even know if they were on the road or not. It took them about 6 hours when it usually takes them about 4.5 hours.

In other news... wait.. there is no other news.. How sad. But that is winter. Not a lot goes on during these last couple of months in winter. I will be so glad once spring is here and then summer. Already have a lot of plans coming together for summer. Can't wait!

Oh Emily I can unfortunately relate to the sickness that for your family probably felt never ending, we're still in the midst of it, we're inching in to month two of it. I sincerely pray your family is past all the sickness. Looks like you thoroughly enjoyed your snow!!
