Turkey For Sale

It started on the 22nd with Alyssa..........the 24 hour stomach flu, (aka: vomit bug) had hit with a vengeance. The 23rd we had a reprieve just in time to clean house, prepare appetizers, wrap gifts and to finish last minute decorating. Not enough prayers were said (I blame DH) , so consequently Sophia gets hit on the 24th. Poor thing, the difference between the 2 sick girls is that Alyssa listened to her body and refused food and was a champion of hitting the sink with her spewing. Sophia wanted to eat (who could blame her really?) and wasn't so adept at hitting proper dispensers with her "stuff", and alot of stuff did she have!!!! HO HO HO Merry Christmas. Wait!!! Not done yet I get hit on the 25th and so does DADDY!!!! Wooo hooooo. Thus the selling of the BIRD...................................I believe one must eat said bird in a certain amount of time.
Boxing Day everyone seemed well enough to make the trek to Nonna's house. Let me tell ya, I made up for missing my meals all in that one meal at Nonna's. Absolutely delicious! Nonna could open up a restaurant, and she doesn't use ANY recipes...she is phenomenal.
Managed to get a few Boxing Day pictures of the girls just before we headed to Nonna's.

Just what are they doing in this picture below? The girls are self-soothing....If you look carefully you will see that Alyssa (on left) is actually sucking her thumb and fingering her shirt sleeve and Sophia on left sucks on her sleeve. I have NO idea why they would feel the need to self soothe at that moment since they had just gotten up from their nap.

"Come here and give me a big one!"

Just riding the wave to a healthy home..............................

Hope your holidays were healthier!

Oh sorry you were hit with the flu for the holidays, we had it the week before.
I just love the pics of the girls, Hubby was just walking by the computer as I was typing and he commented on how beautiful they are, we are in agreement. :O)

Hope the exorcism of all things infectious works out!
We are loaded with respiratory and fevers at the moment. Can't muster the energy to take all three of us to a walk in.
We cancelled Xmas eve with family too, so don't feel bad.
The girls look gorgeous in those dresses....and so much older.

Ugh. I feel your pain. Nothing worse than two babies and the biggest baby of all fh!! Oh, did you have your hands full!!

Your girls look absolutely the sweetest of any two children. They are precious. Are they always so good? What's your secret?

I know all about the "self soothing". Abbey use to suck fabric too. Mainly her sheet. When it was on the bed. It was so darn cute.

Happy New Year.
