To begin with...

Let's see, Steve and I had a deceivingly wonderful hour to ourselves before the kids woke up. We made a pot of coffee (from Costa Rica) and chatted about our plans for the day. But then we discovered that our little one had thrown up in the night. So, to begin our morning we first panicked at the thought of the dangers associated with that, and then we cleaned.

It hasn't really looked up since then as there's been more puke and everyone in the family is sick with something. We've got allergies, head colds, and stomach flu (or something that's make the baby vomit) around here. So... not a lot of fun being had.

Because we're staying indoors we did indulge Coop's grandest desire... to have LEGOs. Lots of LEGOs. He's been playing for hours. I'm a little concerned about what this means for my vacuum.

Despite our illnesses we are still planning on keeping our annual Mother's Day tradition of preparing the flowers for the porch. But I'm hoping the weather will arm up a bit before we do that.

One last thing, congrats to my little brother who is graduating from Law School this week.

I'm so sorry you guys are feeling ill. Hopefully, it's just a 24 hour bug. Hope you guys have a HAPPY MOTHER's DAY! It's supposed to be beautiful tomorrow, so that should make your flower planting more enjoyable! I don't have a green thumb (at all!) and I think it's because I have an aversion to bugs. But I did buy a cute little pinwheel as a surprise for the kids tomorrow, to put outside.

Happy Mother's Day. Hope everyone gets better soon. Kinda par tho'...spending mother's day doing motherly things. Funny how that always works that way. Congrats to Trent too! He has worked hard.
