Happy New Year!

For the second year in a row we are spending New Year's with sick babies.

My baby and my oldest son have the stomach flu.

Sweet things.

Our party broke up around 8:13pm. I'm most worried about the baby. If he doesn't have a urine diaper in the next 2 hours we have to go to the ER for fluids. My quiet time this morning was on letting God be my peace so I keep reminding myself of that tonight. His peace and our deep needs are a perfect match.

I have been doing laundry like a mad woman. As soon as someone gets sick I get on it. Even if it is lots of medium sized loads. I just think it has to be in tip top shape in case Shane or I catch it.

We've had a cracked window to keep some air circulating and PTL I just bought a huge tub of Clorox wipes because I'm wiping things down and Lysoling like a mad woman as well.

Kevin & Page brought BBQ for the party. Grant & Nicole left us Season 3 of Jon & Kate Plus 8. THANK YOU!!! Nearly 30 episodes!!! Nicole got it for Christmas and hasn't even watched it yet. That is LOVE! We'll resume our New Year's Party with them next week. Kevin's even recording the ball drop so we can enjoy it again! And Amy brought over the best dang cupcakes I have ever put in my mouth and I'm on my second one.

(that middle boy of mine just grabbed my foot and said, "Mommy, I Like you!" Awww!!! Sweetness!!)
Happy New Year's bloggy friends!! I'm off to check on my sweet, sick, cuddly baby boys.

(update: we made it through the night and the babies are better this morning. mama is off to hopefully catch a little snooze since i camped out on my living room floor and actually loved every minute of taking care of those little stinkers. oh the cuddles that come with not feeling well. nothin' better.)

Sorry to hear about the stomach bug. How's the little guy this morning?

Happy New Year. Sorry about the sick babies but I confess, I also love the way they snuggle when they're sick. It's a small reward for the hard work we have to put in to take care of them.

Kyndel and Colin had the stomach bug over Christmas. No fun! And I totally went crazy with the Lysol as well. Let us know if you need anything.

I am so glad they are better. I just got over that stomach bug, too. Poor guys!
