we had a great christmas even though lizzy has been sick off and on all throughout december. this is a first for us since she’s usually super healthy!
it’s been hectic and a little crazy with everything: recital and lizzy being sick, and shopping and everything in between.
i haven’t been sleeping very well… i could go for a nap right about now!!
so lizzy- she started throwing up on 23 dec- a festivus treat for me! and that was a few days if pukey good fun. NOT.
i don’t like throwing up- but lizzy is like her daddy, it doesn’t phase her.
and you know when a kid is sick when she declines on any snacks or treats bacause she isn’t feeling well.
as of today she seems to have her appetite back. but i’m still keeping an eye (more like two) on her – just to make sure she’s all better.
last night she stayed in bed- and didn’t do the middle of the night throw-up session.
christmas morning was nice. we all woke up and openend presents. josh and i don’t exchange anything on christmas- so thanks to mom we had a few goodies under the tree to open too! and even the pugs got a few treats from nana and santa.
speaking of santa he did a pretty good job this year- and with the help of his elves (or is it elfs- ie family) lizzy got all sorts of stuff: a barbie glam house, the glam pool (thanks to aunt KT) a bunch of the littlest pet shop toys, lots of art stuff, books (even one that reads to her- which is great because she listens to it in the morning- thanks aunt W) and dress up stuff- she loves all the disney princess outfits- i think we might have them all except aurora (that one had to be retired it was her first one- and she wore it all the time) christmas ca$h that and a train set for her and daddy to play with.
now we’re lookng into a loft bed i think for her b’day- so she will have more room to play in her room. all those toys are taking up some space 😉 i found one i really like- and might see if we can get a custom bed made- it may actually be less expensive than buying from a store. and i found a guy that makes custom beds in the area. so after the new year i’ll be getting an estimate on that!!
in the midsts of all this we are getting ready for new years eve now! it’s going to be a quiet night here. just us having dinner and then staying up to watching the ball drop at midnight. i need to head out tomorrow morning and get our lobster tails and steak and black eyed peas and stuff. it’s our new years feast every year so it seems.
nothing like traditions!
the weather has cooled down- christmas day was a little warm but now we’re feeling a nice chill in the air! lizzy and the pugs are all cuddled up on the floor together sharing their blankets that santa brought, and it seems that they are taking over her spot. it’s a pug pack pile up!
of course new years weekend is when i take down the christmas stuff… lizzy is already asking when the next holiday is and what are we going to decorate with… she’s so funny. flipping through the decorating magazines to give me some ideas what we should do.
but first we need to straighten up the house and get all the christmas stuff back into storage!
well i think this has been a chronologically challenged post. all out of order and jumping around- see i really could use a nap!!
