Back to Normal

Y'all.  I am so blessed to be sitting on my couch, in the comfort of my warm living room, watching something from my DVR and eating actual food.  This time last week I was in the hospital with this sweetie.  That's right.  My poor baby girl spent two days in the hospital for dehydration.  The darn stomach got her and she couldn't get over it.  On top of that, her big sister got strep....AGAIN.  Fourth time in two months.  We now have a tonsillectomy scheduled for January.  I love our doctors - they are seriously the best - but I do not want to see them again for a long, long time.  

I was so happy when she started feeling better!  The nurses just loved this sweetie!  She even got a puppy!

Fortunately, my girls are feeling much better and we are home, healthy and back to normal!

Meanwhile, my school kiddos were very well taken care of.  I had sent home a fun 'hide the turkey activity' the week before after we read Run Turkey Run.  Look at these turkeys!!!  How creative!!!

A Ghostbuster turkey.

A pizza delivery turkey.

Leonardo the Ninja turkey.

And beautiful Princess turkey!  

I just love them!
