popping in to say hello.

I think this has been the longest break I’ve taken from this blog in quite some time.

We are pretty sick around these parts.

First Fern was sick…then me…and now Craig got it. It’s been pretty miserable and poor Craig is the sickest I’ve ever seen him.

Luckily our parents have been providing us some relief by taking Fern so we can rest. Apparently babies don’t care if you’re sick…they still want to play. In fact…they don’t even care if they are the the ones who are sick…they still want to play. Grandparents are good for playing with though, so we’ve been thankful for them.

These are the only things going on in our neck of the woods…

Snuggling on the couch…

Shutting the door to Fern’s room so she can entertain herself by dumping out everything in site while I watch. This requires little interaction since everything is child-proof in there.

Coffee and husband’s sweatshirts.

Lots of tinctures and home cold remedies (read more about this here)

Hopefully you’ve been up to much more fun things than we have over the past week!



  1. aww!! you poor things!! I swear this year’s fall/winter cough & colds have been terrible and everlasting it seems! Prayers you guys get better soon!

  2. I think it all goes around as we’re all sicky sick here 🙁 Hope y’all get better soon!

  3. Yuck. We just had a wicked stomach flu tear through our house but no colds…yet *knocks on wood*. Hope you all are better soon!

  4. Sorry to hear that you and Craig are sick. It’s nice that your parents live in town and are able to give you a break. I hope you two feel better soon.

    I always been to take a blogging break around this time of year. There’s just too much going on. Happy new year my friend!

  5. Ugh no fun being sick, I hope you feel better soon!
