Christmas Joy

We all got sick yesterday. First Bradley in the middle of the night then Chris, then me. Jake only got it a little bit. I guess Matthew wasn't throwing up because of phlegm. I guess he had a bug and then we all got the bug. Fun, fun!

Unfortunately I have a history of being being sick at Christmas. One year I even spent Christmas day in the hospital because I was so dehydrated. I hope I'm not passing this unfortunate tradition (curse) down to my kids. The poor things. Thankfully they all seem to be doing better today. We are supposed to celebrate today because Chris is leaving to go back to S.C. today. He has to work tomorrow. I don't know if I can stomach a big Christmas dinner though. We'll see....

Well, I did manage a little stitching before I got too sick. I'm almost done with the bottom tree section on P&P. I'm definitely not going to get finished by Christmas. Oh well, what can you do?? :)



Well, not much else going on. I've been listening to "The Constant Princess" by Phillipa Gregory. It's pretty good. So much intrigue back in 16th century England. I'm looking forward to listening to more of these books. I also just finished season one of Mad Men. I highly recommend this show! I don't think many people know about it because its on AMC. I would have never heard about it if my mom hadn't told me about it. Season two is supposed to come out next summer I think. Anyway, I hope you all have a very Merry and Healthy Christmas! Write later! :)

  3. Hope you feel well enough for Christmas dinner.

    One year my niece was toxic. Blew through three sets of clothing, and we have a hilarious photo of her "wrapped in swaddling clothing." Funny until we think about how sick the rest of us got the next day...

  5. Hope everyone is feeling better so they can enjoy Christmas. Can really identify with being sick at Christmas. Our family was the same way one year. My sister had eaten fudge and then got sick. Still has trouble eating fudge and it has been many years.

    Love your P&P. Making nice progress.

    Merry Christmas!!!!!!!!!!

    We loved Mad Men-it's quite accurate with styles, etc. Takes me back to those days.

  15. Merry Christmas Nicole,

    I always enjoy reading your blog, and I was looking for a new show to hook into and I downloaded "Mad Men" to my iPod and watched 4 episodes, pretty good so far!

    Thanks for sharing!
