Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas, everyone. I wish you all the best this holiday has to offer!

Valerie has strep throat.
Veronica has a sinus infection.

Let's see.... guess who's next?? Why none other than ME of course. I started feeling run down last night after presents. Then my throat started to hurt. 101 fever during the night. Hot/Cold/Hot. Today I'm achy and really really tired, and my throat has the lovely spots just coming out. Yay me.

Christmas Eve went well. The girls had a GREAT time. It was so fun watching them rip open the presents. I was okay until Valerie unwrapped something my Mom had bought. After she died, we found a few gifts she had stashed away for the kids. I had my Dad wrap them. When Val opened hers, a My Little Pony bath set, I told her that MeMe had bought that for her long ago. Val got so excited! And said, "I gonna tell her thank you in heaven!" And she looked up and said just as sweet as you please, "thank you, MeMe." It was all I could do to fight back the tears.

That darn Santa brought way too much stuff over here!!! Pictures to come soon...


  1. Aw, this made me tear up.

    Merry Christmas, Melanie.

  2. Aww, kids. I hope you were able to enjoy some of the Holiday Spirit. It's so hard to be happy and sad all at the same time. Even though it's been 3 years since my father in law passed, it still feels strange that he is not there. I just keep waiting for him to come home.
