What a week!!

I keep forgetting that it's only Tuesday. We have had a crazy and busy week, so far.

I've mentioned before that we usually have "Family dates" on Saturdays and this past Saturday was no exception, even without Big Daddy.
Hmmm...I should start on Friday night. Maggie invited my mom over for our "Girl's Night" (my sister & Cousin Callie had plans) and we watched "Enchanted". I loved this movie. After the movie, Ellie wanted my mom to leave immediately (really) and then she went to bed. Maggie and I stayed up a little while and then we went to bed together in my room. Little Maggie snored all.night.long. Ellie woke up and I put her in bed with us and she went back to sleep. For about 15 minutes I was in pure bliss! Having Maggie and Ellie all tangled up together sleeping was too cute. Once they were awake, we ate breakfast, got dressed and ready and straightened the house so that it would be ready for it's first showing. We went shopping and
then had lunch at Panera. It was our first time eating there without Daddy and he was very missed.

As we were on our way home, we saw the tiniest snowflakes beginning to fall. We stopped by to visit Nana and Pawpaw and watched the snow get heavier and then stop. Maggie and I came home, put Ellie down for a nap and cuddled on the couch and watched as the snow started falling again.
Of course, we went outside and took a few pictures to send to Daddy! It was just enough snow to look really pretty.

Maggie woke me up a couple of times during the night complaining of a stomach ache and I put her in my bed around 6:00. And then she threw up all over my bed. Ellie had also been up a couple of times during the night with a bad cough.
We spent our Sunday like this:
Maggie obviously felt bad, but her sister wanted to love on her anyway! Ellie's nose ran all day and she whined and cried quite a bit. I stayed in my pajamas all day, and let Maggie watch "Enchanted" again. Maggie missed her friend's birthday party and was devastated until she threw up for the third time.

Maggie woke up feeling "perfect" and was mad that I wouldn't let her go to preschool. She dressed herself and seemed to feel fine and we needed to get groceries, so I loaded up the girls and my tissues for Ellie's nose and went to the store. They both played well (Ellie wearing Maggie's shoes and feeling a little like Dorothy) and took a nice nap.Maggie woke up, then stayed on the couch or the floor and then unexpectedly threw up all over the couch...while Ellie had a really bad dirty diaper and it leaked all over her legs. Fun stuff!

I cleaned up the mess (while my mom kept me company for about thirty minutes after I called and said "I need your help") and enjoyed the scented pine cones that I hung on the staircase earlier in the day.

And that brings us to today...only Tuesday. Maggie has spent a lot of time on the couch or rolling around in the floor, Ellie's nose is still running and I'm pretty sure that I'm getting a cold.

I'm thinking "It's only Tuesday?" too. I have so much to do this week but absolutely none of it has been done so far b/c I'm sick. I missed one party last night, probably another one this Thursday, family pictures on Friday, not sure if I'll feel up to the one on Saturday and a church party on Sunday. I feel absolutely terrible but hopefully, A stays well.

This season has been full of sickness for so many families. Hopeful that you won't get sick while getting your girls well.
