'Tis the Season

For sickness and holiday cheer.

As soon as we celebrated Thanksgiving, we put up our tree. On Monday, we opened up the Christmas box - Pop's (my grandfather) old army foot locker. We pulled out all the ornaments, Christmas books and stockings and started to spread it around the house.

We've had a bit of a rough week. Max's daycare called on Tuesday afternoon saying that he had a fever and he kept a fever through Thursday night. It hasn't returned, but he's now puked a couple of times and he does not feel well and it's been a bit rough around the house - lots of tears, cuddles and movies and we're trying to keep him hydrated and eating Saltines.

We made sugar cookie dough yesterday, when he seemed to be doing better so Max and I could make cookies today. He helped make them, but couldn't even finish one because he was feeling so bad today.
A true sign of a sick kid.Needless to say we won't be sharing this batch with our friends.

While he was sleeping today, I made fudge for a cookie exchange tonight.
One of my childhood favorites!
