Good afternoon, MMC friends! How are you all doing? I am doing pretty well. Just lounging around today.

What are you all up to today? Not doing much right now, but the family and I have plans for this evening. EA was up most of the night with a fever and abdominal pain. I think she has a virus and has slightly passed it off to me, but it will be okay. It's Christmas and I'm trying to stay jolly! You seems to be feeling somewhat better now.

Yesterday we were very busy. We had EA's pre-K family Christmas party and it turned out lovely. We had a lot of fun and the kids put on a performance. They sang beautifully! After that, I took EA to showing of Polar Express, where they also acted out some of the scene's, had a dinner, with popcorn, cookies, hot chocolate, and Santa. We do this every year. She loved it!

This evening, as long as EA is feeling up to it, we're going to go out for dinner, and then we're going to an annual light display, that I've been going to since I've been going to. We'll look at some around the neighborhood too. They'll beautiful with the snow.

I am off work still tonight, then work the next two days, then am off again. I love the holidays!

Well, I hope you all enjoy your day/evening. I will check back in here later. Thinking of you all, your families, and furbabies. God Bless and keep smiling!

Thank you, thank you - a million times over - thank you.

Thanks, buddy! Yea, now that I am getting over this cold, I don't want to be getting a virus on top of it.

We will have a great time - looking forward to it. Talk to you tonight sometime!

Okay, I've read all of the posts, just don't have enough time to reply right now. I'll try to get back here later tonight. It just depends how busy the grocery store is. I just realized that I forgot to pick up sticks of butter when I was in the mad rush to beat the snow on friday.

I am trying very hard to avoid the knee surgery thing, I hope you recover quickly from yours. At least painting you can do sitting down!

Noah right behind him, "Mom? I fell of the barn, I think I rolled my ankle."

Slap a blue on him, "Go sit down, I'll get some ice."

Bud behind that, "Honey? Noah fell of the barn while I was doing my kettlebell swings, fell into me and I dropped it on my head."

Slap a purple on him, "Go sit down, I'll get the ice and bandages."

Please - no one ask me why he was on the roof. LOL
nice you have everything under control !
