Happy New Year!

What a week we had (and for you sake I won't include any pictures). Starting last Monday night, Madelyn woke at midnight and started throwing up. We happened to be visiting my sister in Cape Cod. It is so much fun to have a sick child at someone else's home! She recovered by Tuesday afternoon. On Wednesday we drove back home (a normally 4 hour drive) -- but thanks to the snow and Rhode Island's lack of doing ANYTHING about it we were on the road 8 hours. We took the kids to a little new year's eve party at church (they were so anxious to run around and be crazy!). We celebrated the new year at 10 and came home and went to bed. A little after midnight, Julianne started throwing up (with the first one all over our bed -- YUCK). Yet again another night of little sleep and lots of throw up. New Year's day Adam threw up and Julianne finally stopped around 3:00 in the afternoon. Friday everyone felt good. We took it easy and went to a matinee of BOLT. Saturday we went grocery shopping and tried to get all ready for going back to school and work. Sunday morning, Catherine started throwing up.

HOPEFULLY, whatever thing has invaded our home finally can leave! All 4 kids (but neither Trent nor I) have had it. I have never washed my hands so much. What a start to the New Year.

Imagine how fun it would be if you had ten kids!
