Happy New YEar!

Hey Girls well its so wonderful to have a great New Year ....i dunno about you all but i am exhausted and mentally just EXHAUSTED! How did your new year and Christmas go?

Mine went something like this:

with my babies :) all 5 had an awesome x-mas and too boot my very dear husband surprised us with a trip too Tennessee! YAY HOORAY for vacation's!

DaY AfTeR x-MaS and NeW YeArS EvE we spent in Tennessee on vacation we skiied ...we ate fudge...we rode go-carts...we made candy at the candy shoppe...and we had a BLAST!

JaNuArY,4Th My husband Calls ALicia he explained i just got laid off! YUP truly not expecting that one! None the less God gives us curve balls we just Roll with th punches! We are blessed ....although he was laid off from his consulting job he still has his teaching job at the university so i am grateful...VERY could be much much worse...thank god its just a job and not another hurricane ROFL! SHEW!

JaNuAry,11th while looking for one of my listings that got lost in the search engine on etsy i found out my designs Were being copied and the funny thing is that its being sold for only a fraction of what i sell it for! BAH HUMBUG i guess i have officially made it in the jewelry world when i am being copied watch out Picasso i got mad skills...LOL

so now i need to update with pictures huh! :)
I hope everyone is weathering the cold weather and bad economy my prayers and love are with everyone!

Sweet Baby Gal "Letter E" Has the flu Along with Letter's C and D

So As most of you know i am so FREAKY when FLU shots open up for business i am the first in line with All 5 of my kids "Letters A,B,C,D and E" oldest to smallest one by one just like an assembly line ROFL we all get the flu shot!

WELL bah humbug 3 weeks ago my sweet angel "Letter C" she is 4 years old she comes home from school and says Mommy i don't Fell So....BLAH yes BLAH and that's where it all began she was so sick for a solid week with none other that ROTAVIRUS omgoawd i was a wreck everyone was quarantined in separate rooms and my mother in law came {you know its bad when i am calling in for back up help lol} and it was just a nightmare! She ran such high fever's and chill's and just omgosh heartbreaking it was! So we spent three days back and fourth to the Dr.s office loads of tests but ultimately there is no cure for this it just had to run its course and what a nasty gross course it was UGH!

So we got that under our belt and she was in the clear to go back to school so she returned to school after missing 10 days and i was so happy for her! WELL she came home it was last Friday and she began to talk and i literally slammed my brakes i dropped off a healthy happy non sick little girl well i picked up a sweet baby gal who sounded like she swallowed a frog YUCK you have got to be kidding me that's all i was thinking! WELL off to the Dr. 1 hour away mind you! He says well she has no strep...and she has had her flu shot...puzzled he looks at me and says well lets just swab her nose any ways for the flu virus and i just laughed no way Dr...i exclaimed i am the queen of antibacterial soap and i don't dare let my children near a shopping cart we are huge hand washers.... there just is no freaking way! WELL guess the joke was on me indeed because she tested positive for the flu strain.... WHAT.... WHAT ....WHAT.... i wanted to whack him LOL seriously ...are you jocking ...this has to be America's funniest home video's RIGHT no wait let me click my heels together "There is no place like home...No place like home! Well he then explains its very contagious WHAT way i am a wreck and in tears for sure i call my husband who is laughing at me for crying LOL and i let him have an ear full! So my Dr. GOD LOVE HIM always the pessimistic one says here is antibiotic for "Letter C,D,and E" the three babies {3,4 and 10 month old} so i gasp no way we will need this i exclaimed....i will keep her in her room we will be fine "HE giggles" What the heck no way not a time to giggle DR. LOL That was on a Friday around 5pm Saturday 6am Letter D crys "momma my throack it huwts" AHHHHHHH..... then sweet baby D awakes at 9am burning up with fever and a cough LOVELY! So all three have been on zithromax today was the last day and i must say "I SURVIVED" i thought for sure i would be a wreck but "I am okay" it passed quickly and the Dr really took care of me he gave me phenergan with antihystamine's (sp) and god love him he knew when i could not even grasp the idea of everyone having the FLU.... THANK GOD....he took care of me! Me and my husband and the older too kiddos "Letter's A and B" no FLU knock on wood LOL pray that we stay well LOL!

Here is Baby D not feeling well and not letting me brush my teeth LOL

huge hugs

Happy Birthday My sweet Gal "Letter C" turned 3 YAY!
