This Christmas is not how I envisioned it to be

All month long I had this sinking feeling that we would come down with the flu right before Christmas. Don't ask me why I thought this. Maybe because everyone around us was and that we were sick on Christmas last year and it would just be my luck.

Well, Saturday night the kids both got sick and continued to be sick for 7 hours every 20 minutes. Their poor little bodies were having such a hard time handling it and they didn't understand what was going on. Sunday was spent trying to rehydrate them and cleaning and cleaning and recleaning lots of laundry. I spent my days covered in way too much puke and poop (t.m.i). Fast forward to last night and all of a sudden they are sick again.

While I am thankful that this did not happen on Christmas I am bummed because we had to skip a family gathering last night to watch the Seahawks (yeah. go Hawks!) and now we have decided to forgo our Christmas Eve celebration tonight. Our house is a war zone and I am praying that hubby and I don't get sick.

We have been so excite to host Christmas dinner here for the first time but that is all up in the air.

However, despite all of this I am still really excited about Christmas. This is the first year that my kids understand the true meaning of Christmas and I can not wait for them to wake up and see all their presents. I know it is not fun to be sick but I am so thankful that my little family will be together in sickness and in health. So, while it is not going as planned it will still be wonderful.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas. Hope to be back later this week. I have lots of posts lined up.
