Everyone felt fine all day. I think Dad taking the kids for their weekly McDonalds breakfast proved too much for recovering stomachs is all. We are all still on the re-entry foods until stomach linings heal back. The acid content in that bug is crazy. I opted out and ate my Lucky Charms and had another can of Chicken Soup for lunch. I tried pizza last night and ugh…I think that’s why I had a hard time with heartburn. But, you long for something with flavor after all that broth.
We went out today and had bland foods and the younger two did great. They got some shoes and we got items needed to mail to Mamaw to try to get a few things there on time for Christmas. It will still be an effort. It’s hard to know what someone in her situation would need or want or have time for!
It was wonderful tonight at the church concert to sit as a family and laugh and see how much the kid’s are growing in confidence. Goldy usually never volunteers to be in front and wearing her new little heels (all we could find in a six and a half!) she had two opportunities to be in front of a crowd tonight and she just did great. I could not have talked her into that if I’d tried. What a sport.
The boys all sat and did what boys do during caroling events…whispering and mimicked the singer. At one point the speaker was telling a joke about S*tan in the room and Red yelled out something like “Yikes!” I didn’t know where it came from, but we all laughed.
We got the tree brought in from the barn and put up tonight when we got home. We got lights on it, and it’s ready for decorating! It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
I got the first of my cards out today and have several more to tackle. I want to make a couple homemade things to try to send to my mom.
Thanks to those of you who are going out of your way to add smiles and cheer to my life this season…it means the world.
