Ah... Watch Out, You Might Get What You're After

Yes, I'm still sick. But finally getting better. This was the first day I've woken up without a fever.

Friday Aaron got home from his trip, but he had to go into work for a few hours (WTF?); once he officially got home at 4 p.m, I kissed his cheek and went to bed. I didn't return until Saturday morning. So that helped a little.

Saturday was pretty much spend whining all day about how I felt miserable. My parents and I decided to put off our Easter dinner until next weekend since the boys and I were still sick (and it worked out fine for them -- they went to Kathy's sister's home [we were initially invited, but couldn't go due to the gluten factor] for a big family dinner), which turned out to be a good idea, because I was still running a fever yesterday.

But we did manage to get some fun stuff in for the kids. And they loved their baskets.


And I loved mine too. Bethany sent me a basket "just because." So sweet. I don't think I've ever been so excited to tear into an Easter basket. Everything was handmade and incredibly thoughtful.

Later in the day, we played in the front with the boys... and look what Griffin wanted me to do...


He can magically sing his ABC's now (and no, I don't know where he got that from), but he doesn't necessarily recognize all the letters with their symbols. So we worked on that. Luckily for us, we have a rockin' driveway for such educational purposes.

And then, we colored the eggs (yes, we are slackers. I know. Didn't color eggs until the day off. We're very sorry)...


I should have stood on a chair to get a better shot.


We took those instructions to wear aprons Very Seriously. So seriously, in fact, Griffin stripped and Aaron put on an old, old college shirt.


Pretty....


... and more pretties.

I even managed to do a little sewing [insert big flashing lights and hoopla here] yesterday. Expect a tutorial soon.

It's so nice not to be running a fever. So. Very. Nice.

Now, if the congestion would just go away...

Your egg dyeing looks like it was a huge production...and my eyes were popping out at the size of your driveway. Fun! Glad you're feeling better.

So glad you were able to rest! Nothing like trying to take care of everyone with a fever - yuck. That's a sweet picture of your little guy dyeing eggs in his underwear. My boys love running around like that.

Thanks for commenting on my blog. I feel better about my swap now. I'm just always worried that the other person feels like they got the raw end of the deal, ya know?

Hope you feel better. I've never been sick so much until I had a kid. :D I wish my son would write with the chalk instead of eating it.
