Viruses and Legos

I don't know if it was all the rain and cold weather from our trip, riding in the airplanes, or what but most of us have been sick.  Knock on wood, I'm the only one staying  relatively healthy.  I can tell my body is fighting something but the something has not taken over, yet.

Here's this week's adventures (and it's only Wednesday).  Sunday all the kids stayed home from church due to their coughs and stuffy/runny noses.  Tuesday Mickey worked from home because he wasn't feeling good and Meg came home early from school with tummy pains.  I won't mention what became of that.  Today Mattey and Kade both stayed home.  Kade has a cold that really took hold.  Mattey has been coughing and coughing for hours at night until she passes out from exhaustion.  I took her to the doctor because she needed some relief.  It's just a virus and last night was probably the worst of it since they tend to last 7-10 days and are worse in the middle.  Good to know.  She's on a good cough medicine that should knock her out.

The reds spent a LOT of time in front of the tv today.  Since this doesn't often happen, and I didn't go to sleep until 3:30 am, I didn't mind.  They also got out the Legos and they played together.  Here's Mattey's house.

She got this set from Santa.  I'm not sure if the horse came with it or not.  I'm thinking not.

I really hope everyone is going to school tomorrow.  I need some alone time.
