No fun:(

We have been sick, sick, sick in the Parks' house. Last Friday night Annalee woke up with fever and Davis woke up the following morning with the same thing. They both just had a sore throat and fever, which was not surprising because our good friends that we play with frequently had a virus along those lines. They were getting better Sunday, and Monday Paige woke up with it. I had jury duty so my mother in law graciously took off work and kept my sick bambinos. Annalee, who had been getting better started spiralling downward and complaining of her ears hurting. I made an appointment for her and sure enough..double ear infection. Meanwhile as the day goes on, my throat starts to hurt. I woke up Tuesday with fever and the worst sore throat I've ever had. Ever. I couldn't get out of bed much less take proper care of my kiddos, so Scott came home from work and had to stay home Wednesday as well. Paige was finally better on Wednesday, so I was able to take her to school, in between fevers! I finally had my last fever break about 10pm Thursday night, but Scott started not feeling well. He had to stay out again on Friday with the same thing. On saturday he decided to go to the doctor. Keep in mind, that I think that I have this virus that is going around and am feeling a little better but my throat is not great and I was still fatigued. So Scott sees the doc and he has strep! That in turn means, I have to go and I, of course, have strep as well:( I have not had strep in a good 25 years. Basically since I had my tonsills out when I was little. We got a round of steroid and antibiotic shots to help get us back on our feet. Our family and friends have been so good and helpful to us! From taking the kids places and bringing us meals, it was a huge help to give us a little time to rest! Hopefully we are on the up and up! I feel alot better today with a little sore throat still and Scott is getting there, just a little slower. Please pray that we will all be back to good health quickly and join humanity again!!

More Christmas stuff!

My children, perfectly perched in front of the tree on Christmas Eve, as we celebrate with one of our traditions: to open one gift (which is always our Christmas p.j.'s ;)
Another one of our traditions is to go drive around to look at Christmas lights after the Christmas Eve service at church. We packed a picnic and ate in the car! We found a house that it's lights were aligned to music on a certain radio staion! It was fabulous!!!!
