Our Thanksgiving took a very untraditional turn this year thanks to the unwelcomed guest of the stomach bug.
It all started the Friday before Thanksgiving while I was out camping with my GS troop. This is me looking all “campy!!”
I started throwing up around 1AM in the morning! Fun times. Got home Saturday morning and was sick all day. Was much better by Sunday evening. Then Wesley got REALLY sick on Monday. It was just plain BAD. He was sick Monday, Tuesday and part of Wednesday. Then Collins got sick on Wednesday. We had to call our family and tell them “Please make other plans, we are too sick for guests.” Wednesday night Lawson got sick. Joy, joy. The amount of laundry I did in 5 days was INSANE!!
Thursday, Wesley was 90%, Lawson was 60% but no one was in the mood to eat. So we played outside while Collins blew leaves. He was about 80% Thursday will no appetite, but the leaves were driving him nuts so he was outside blowing for about 4 hours. He went to work and picked up his leaf vac and we cleaned the yard.
The leaves this year are SO BAD!! Our yard alone filled up an entire leaf vac and we (collins) just cleaned up 2 weeks before that. Geez.
By Friday we were all doing better so we had our first Thanksgiving feast by ourselves and with no help in the kitchen. Surprisingly we did really well working together!!!
Our family giving thanks to the Lord. (yes, I had the timer camera on, and yes, you can see who has their eyes open!!!)
