Christmas, Part I

Friday marked the day that we started our Christmas celebration by heading north to Grandma and Grandpa H's house. The kids dove into all the things to do there and Kevin and I got to hang out with the big people. The kids wore themselves out and crashed and we went to bed quite a bit after that. I was awoken in the middle of the night by some screaming. The kind of screaming that is only associated with bewildered nausea, that's right, vomiting.

Apparently the bug hadn't left our family yet and Benny threw up on the air mattress he and Lou were sharing. Amazingly enough not only did Louie sleep through it, but he also didn't roll into it. My kids are not still while they sleep. I cleaned Benny up and put both he and Lou on couches, making sure to put a bowl right next to him!

The next day was much better, and even thought Ben was more lethargic than usual, everyone had a good day. We had good food, listened to good music and enjoyed each other's company, which is what it's all about, isn't it?

Mere is so smart she can read upside down!

Many, many hours of fun to come with these.

The boys have a habit of dressing like Uncle Nick.
Good thing he's a pretty cool guy.
